Many players fear the darkness in Starcraft 2. They fear it so much that they never leave their base, opting to build their defenses until they feel secure and tech straight to Carriers.

Now, the match will go one of two ways and there is no other way the match will go. The first is that their opponent employs a similar tactic and it becomes a game of who can make 200 food worth of Carriers the fastest and attack move them the best.

Just as if the Orcs win, except Gandalf requires a lot more vespene gas.
