    I'm guessing I'm dead.

    Sincere apologies for the anti-climatic chainstalling, I had wanted Dayy to switch my mail to Bing/Hotmail in preparation for my Chinese trip, and that didn't happen.

    This turn marked the greatest battle Man had in this game so far, and the greatest one I had in a long while. It's ironic that my opponent actually staled. But from the looks of things, Gath's army was well-scripted and well-prepared, including equip, gems and whatnot.

    The battle happened in Gath's fortress Lorborough, between Man's main army and what I suppose is Gath's main army.

    For whatever reason I expected to see a lot of blood magic on Gath's part. My idea was this guy:

    Scripted to cast Time Stop, followed by 2 Earthquakes. My 2 Kings of Elemental Earth were scripted to cast Earthquakes on turn 1 as follow up. So that's 4 EQ's in total, which should have taken care of all blood slaves on the battlefield. Man's own forces were protected by Mass Flight, naturally.

    As you see on screenshots above, Gath didn't have all that many blood slaves, so I wasted a ton of E gems and mage turns for nothing. The battle was long and gruelsome.

    Gath made a single mistake which costed him the entire army - Rigor Mortis.

    It may seem like a good idea at first, but we were fighting for Gath's fort, meaning Gath has nowhere to escape. I'm sure Gath knew perfectly well that Man always casts Mists of Deception and Howl - you can see on screenshots above that Gath's forces didn't manage to make a breakthrough outside the walls, towards' Man's mages. Just too much stuff blocking the way.

    By casting Rigor Mortis Gath condemned the battle to end by time limit, where both sides retreat.

    Man didn't lose much during that retreat.

    Gath... wasn't so lucky.

    However, this battle costed life for Wolfgang Von Cross, the beloved prophet of Kromus, nicknamed "Vulcan Cannon of Man"

    May he rest in peace. :salute:

    Hey, come on!!! I stalled, that was not the plan at all! The army was scripted against TC, no proper preparation was done :negative:

    The vamps didn't have D gems for shadow blast, the little guys were planned to cast like 25 magic duels :(

    My EQ's interrupted quite a few Gath's spellcastings, I suppose Darkness was among them. Because there was no reason not to cast it, literally.

    Doubtful. Antimagic was up from turn 1, and Tower Guards were formed into lines.

    Against what, S3 Shadow Seers? Yeah, no.

    If there was a thing that could save you, it's Blood Rain + Wailing Winds, hoping for early rout. Without Rigor Mortis, of course.

    Too much of a chore. Check your email for the turn.

    Against your 20 or so magisters? And yeah, blood magic + darkness, my own time stop, will of the fates, army of rats, all kinds of plans were left totally unscripted :( Fuck me. I mean, I don't think I would have won but who knows, and if this was a good battle for you, that one would have been even better. Anticlimactic, I am disappoint.

    IIRC, when you cast Magic Duel, the best of opponet's S mages intercepts and tries to beat the caster in magic duel. So as long as my Shadow Seers are alive, your Magic Duels wouldn't hit my Magisters.

    At least, that's how it worked in Dominions 4.

    Today's the football match,
    and I am already a drunken wretch.
    I ain't got time to burn,
    Today's alchohol's turn.
    So if you would condescend,
    I bid you, please: extend!

    Wtf happened? Looks like Matalarata and I got a stale turn for no reason? The next turn went through immediately somehow. FFS.

    According to game page, both Gath and C'tis submitted their turns, and Man was the last to submit. I did my turn and sent it over. Llama hosted and now it looks like both of you staled somehow.

    What now? Rolling back or moving on?

    I'm ok with moving on, at least my main army didn't fight a huge battle unscripted this time :D

    Dunno what happened, maybe cause Matalarata and I submitted our turns 543953 times last night and then one 2h file mysteriously went through as the right one for the next turn?

    Yep, llama had a brainfart of sort. First, I tried sending my turn thrice over the span of about one hour with no effect as such, I postponed. Today I woke up with 40+ new messages, some about submitting my turn, some about revising my turn and some about submitting the wrong turn.


    ...let's just roll on.

    sqeecoo must be dancing in joy right now :lol: This turn could have gone so much worse for Gath if he actually submitted.
