I think it's a bit awkward and not trade proof, which a setup should be for that level. If you get blitzed on left you would have to avoid trading marshals, and let the blitzer take a cap. It just makes things unnecessarily difficult for yourself.

I would do something a bit more basic personally. Marsh one side, gen+spy in centre, one weaker side. Gen in middle is better as most do tend to blitz on one side.

My 98% win record disagrees :)

 

There's nothing remotely disastrous about losing one or even two captains to the marshal in the early stages of the game against a blitzer, if it comes to that. Most blitzers will come down with a captain first before the marshal anyway, so that captain usually gets traded off, and that frees up space. 

 

It's very trade-proof, actually, why do you think it's not?

You don't even played ranked games  :rolleyes: Or are you referring to that abomination of a setup with the marshal, general, cols, majrs, capts, etc. all in a row?  :lol:

What I like about this set up is that it also works against people who are not marshall blitzers.
But I played only silver players.
