    Update!
    Wow that's a lot of game reports.
    Added Brew's challenges vs. kime and DesertChicken

    FYI I was planning on having unrated players get ratings during the bi-weekly updates, but I think it's best to have them get a rating once they finish their 5th game. For example, MNC Dover will get his rating once he's finished one more game.

    One more game? I'm 1-2 so far. :)

    I have you down as beating kime but losing against Brew, wonderpug and DesertChicken. I'll check on that.

    I need to get better at reporting results as they come, but if you show me as having an active game with grillaface/Sploozoo, I took the win on that one. As elves, I aggressively aggressively went after his tribe shaman (shamen? shamans?), taking two out at once. Sploozoo had some nasty chieftan comebacks that made me lose a lot of troops, and I had a failed wraith upgrade attempt when Sploozoo's spike armor sets eliminated Fluffy's chance at self-healing and I had to give up on him. Upgraded void monks carried the day, but the unit count was really low on both sides at the end.

    I just learned that the spiked crystals can take damage from attaking tribe in spiked armor buff. Neat.

    I also think it's amusing how the crystals can get resistance bonuses from paladins, and in the spikey crystals' case, damage bonuses as well.

  • BrewBrew Registered User regular
    Oddly enough their damage does not get debuffed by ne priests.

    Yeah, I'm not the biggest fan. I like the concept of having more numerous, weaker crystals, but since they're so out in the open and so close to each other, it seems to just mean they fall a lot easier. It's made worse by there being two assault boost squares, like they didn't learn their lesson with what made the two-crystal map bad.

    Yeah, that's defiantly a crystal rush map. I think they may have been trying to negate the Tribe's crystal execute ability on one map.

    I have decided that attacking Dwarves and Tribe that are established is too hazardous to my health. I'm gonna try focusing on destroying their crystals instead.

    Edit: And how come random players seem to want to draw the game out forever when it's clear that they've lost? Must you make me chase your last two characters around the board with my hoard of units?

    !result between myself and @Theodore Floosevelt

    I lost... handily.

    elves v elves on the two crystal with teleports map.

    he got an impaler in position to bring down the first one and i only had a necro to attack it with which slowly put me behind and let him take the forward crystal. Then i was way unprepared for his single minded focus on crystal rushing my back one and i never caught up from there. Also my last move was dumb. i took out his unit at my crystal and blocked off the attack from the front and side, without ever once thinking "hey he can just attack diagonally" which he did with the next unit he raced in from his side. and that was the end of the match.

    GG Initiate! Yeah, I totally lucked out with drawing an impaler and a sword in my opening hand. Definitely gave me the edge in the crystal race versus your necro. Having both my spells ready to rez that impaler later was pretty handy, too.

    The cold war we had going on was cracking me up, though. We both just set up and went about destroying the other's big crystal, not even attacking each other. There would be the occasional potshot, sure, and we kept our units in threatening positions, but I don't think there was really any actual combat until the end.

    I got a game going right now of Council (me) vs Dark Elves. I've only got like 10 items left in my door and I haven't gotten a single Cleric/Potion yet. Needless to say, my opponent has been having a field day picking apart my units. Bad luck of the draw I guess. :(

    You get a rating! (You're a real boy now!)
    The average rating of your opponents was 1501.4. The system for new ratings initially assumes you're also an average player compared to your opponent, so expects 2.5 wins over 5 games. It gives 30 points for every win point (or 15 per 1/2 point) over the expected 2.5 (or takes away for the reverse), then rounds to the nearest whole number. That means your new rating is 1486.

    Other than that, it's basically the same. Just keep challenging other players!

    I'm starting to get more confident in my Tribe's game. I've got few non-league games going and I'm winning them all by either punishing aggression with witch plus corpse explosion or using a Typhoon between the healer unit and the tank/special/etc to gain an AP advantage. Also won a beautiful game with them using Typhoon to open a Teleporter square to take out the last crystal with a bloodraged Shaman.

    Anyone have any Tribe's strategies they are willing to share?

Started to have fun with the game so I plonked down for the dwarves to get rid of the ads mostly. Would anyone be interested in some casual matches?

    wonderpug elf win vs. @desertchicken dwarves

    Real close match on the teleporter map. I had some crazy aggressive early moves on his back crystal, and with the help of a soul harvest resurrection, I was able to fully destroy that back crystal and start positioning to take out the giant front crystal. Desertchicken got some good pulverizer damage on my back crystal, too, but it was still at least standing with a sliver of health. That sliver made all the difference.

    I got a necro in position to attack his front crystal, but he got his annihilator in position to do the same to mine, with two neighboring paladins to protect him and boost his damage. I tried to prep an impaler to make a move on the annihilator, but the annihilator knockback bumped my impaler that one extra step too far to make it possible. I did the math and it looked like I'd win a race to crystal destruction, so I ignored the annihilator threat and just kept attacking his crystal.

    But then he added a runemetal damage upgrade to his annihilator, which I hadn't accounted for. Combined with the auras from the two paladins, he was doing a lot more damage than I expected. Did the math again and it looked like I had to do something to make it harder for him to take the last sliver off my back crystal. I moved a unit forward a step to remove an opportunity for desertchicken to get splash damage, and if my math was right, I'd win the destruction race. My math was right. ;)

    Super close match, though, and all he needed was one extra action point, or one extra pulverizer in hand.

    gg!
