    Crossings north and south were far more difficult and very far away. And again the army would be cut off by Gondor and it's allies.




    Were those men not within the Rammas Echor already?...

    He didn't move all his forces there. A huge Orc host was waiting (and bred) for him in Mordor. Rhun and Harad have borders with Mordor, the Easterlings and Haradrim's safest path to war was via...

    They're not two issues though, they're one and the same. The War of the Ring. If we exclude that wildcard (Frodo) Sauron wins. Not even through strength of numbers. Without Gandalf, his use of...

    You're hugely understating Gandalf (and Frodo's) contribution to this. They sent the Ring into Mordor in the hands of a hobbit. That is not what any reasonable opponent would do.

    You miss the part where he almost won. The armies he sent forth (1st and 2nd time around) were all but enough to win. Underestimate Gondor? Not really. Even with Gandalf and Aragorn's help...

    A large number of these "tactical failures" on Sauron's part can be attributed to Gandalf's genius. Sauron didn't expect Aragorn to intercept his Black ships. Has the Corsairs turned up at Pellenor...

    Not so sure about that. He nearly brought all of Middle-earth under his sway twice. Arrogant probably more than tactically incompetent.

    Don't forget he had all but won the second time round. It...

    OP has a point. The loot system needs a major overhaul before it's anything close to "fair". (I realise that a completely random system is almost the definition of fair but you know what I mean)
