Re: Online Season 18 - ROUND 2

On to a slightly different issue:

In all seriousness, I had been joking before your game that Crevcor had been ignored in basically every game so far. But obviously snipers are the perfect army to take advantage of it, and that they did. That game was straight-up brutal. To some extent this was just a crazy matchup thing. Crevcor is not half that insane most of the time.

That said... in the future I don't think I will support us using Violation, at least in standard format games. The issue is the glyph locations. Because of the lava field, the glyphs need to be strong or they are just ignored. But the glyphs are set up in a way that one side has a much easier time defending one glyph than the other one. So if one glyph is more valuable in a given game, then it can really skew things.

I actually don't think Violation is that unbalanced most of the time in favor of camping, but when one side can camp near its glyph and force the action, it's bad. Maybe Violation can be adjusted to move the glyphs towards more evenly contestable locations, and we can use it in the future.

Anyway, sorry you guys had an unbalanced game. Lesson learned on all ends.

Re: Online Season 18 - ROUND 2

I was shocked to see that Crevcor and Gerda were even being used. I am so unused to seeing such power houses in the first place, but the fact that they were so close to the respective start zones made it trivial to camp around the glyph and replace any units I managed to lose without missing out on attacks.

Obviously a few other factors worked out to make that match go the way it did, but I think more central or distant glyphs make it a little harder to camp around at least since you have to actually pull your army forth in order to claim it.

Re: Online Season 18 - ROUND 2

Me and Simval just had a very tense game. One of my Skull Demons managed to kill Kurrok early, but was killed eventually. The remaining Knights and Demon attacked Johnny and eventually killed him, but all met their end at the hands of the Mohicans. Hawthorne and Prince Al'kahora put up a fight, but in the end 4 Mohicans and 2 Air Elementals were left. It was a very swingy game at times, but in the end, they evened out towards Simval. Good game man.

The Simval (0-1) v. Heroscaper Guy (0-1) pool of armies is:
* Wolves of Badru x2, Morgoloth, Mezzodemon Warmongers x2, Kee-Mo-Shi, Isamu
* Air Elemental x8, Kurrok the Elementalist, Mohican River Tribe x2, Johnny "Shotgun" Sullivan
* Otonashi, Kyntela Gwyn, Arkmer, Emirroon, Jorhdawn, Elaria the Pale, Haduc, Ulginesh
* Prince al'Kahora, Sir Hawthorne, Air Elemental x3, Death Knights of Valkrill x3, Skull Demon x2
Heroscaper Guy chooses to pick his opponent's army first or second. After armies are picked, Simval chooses who places first.
Me and Heroscaper Guy had scheduled for tomorrow morning, but I had forgotten some stuff... So we played tonight !

Heroscaper Guy decided to give me my Indian & Cowboy Storm army, while I gave him his Death Knight army.

I started strong, placing my Air Elemental in some good spots, and shooting with Johnny, but the Skull Demon could go past my swirling vortex and pummeled my guys. He managed to get to Kurrok by the second round, and Kurrok died in the third round ! Oh no !

We had lost an even amount of point (except Kurrok) though, so I had hope. Johnny Shotgun and his buddy Air Elemental then managed to survive a loooot of attacks, like 4 each. This was a turning point, as I killed a bunch of HG's point during those turns. All this time, I had an elemental on Gerda and he never died, and that helped me a lot (good choice to move him there instead of attacking with another one).

The big cowboy finally died, having killed only like 60 points, but having been the greatest wound soaker ever.

My mohican then came out really strong, killing 3 Death Knight, and finishing the Skull Demon. At that point I started rolling like a madman, my 3/4 attacks flying around against Heroscaper Guy's 0/3 defense... Stuff like that.

The Mohicans continued their crazy charge and killed Prince Al'Kahora in two or three attacks, same for Hawthorne. I won with 2 Air Elemental and 4 Mohicans left. Thanks Heroscaper Guy for the game ! You had me scared in the beginning, but the dice gods weren't on your side. Good luck in the rest of the tournament.

Re: Online Season 18 - ROUND 2

Chris Perkins and I start in 25 min.


Man and over, poor placement on Sudema almost let TKN kill her but on the next turn I nailed the 17 on Stare of Stone and that gave me the momentum to finish the game!


Thanks for playing Chris!

Re: Online Season 18 - ROUND 2

Have not heard from my opponent since Monday and we were aiming to play our game sometime yesterday. I sent him a PM yesterday but did not get a response. Anything I need or should do at this point?
