Re: Ladder Site Online...

I think it is up to the owner of an account/accounts to be honest about whether they have 1 or more accounts. At the end of the day though, they may convince themselves otherwise, said account will always be a hollow shell of their actual efforts, and all the more sweeter to beat for the juicy ELO b...

Re: Balance Ideas (Unit Changes)

@silent, a single orc archer with 8 fire would kill a ghost at night. Asides from the fact that's only a 25% chance to happen, what was your point? Northerners need help in this matchup. And I wouldn't even bother with a ghost when I could just blast my way through the horde with adepts and skele's...

Re: Balance Ideas (Unit Changes)

either that or increase orc archers from 5-3 pierce to 6-3... the unit is barely ever used as is I'd also like to see this. The orc archer is really pathetic and could do with a buff. The only reason for buying it is against rebels when they buy a wose, and even then it's a terrible waste if you ca...

Re: The most overused and the most underused faction

Despite going random, I seem to get rebels fairly often, then probably loyalists and drakes. Knalgans I don't mind so much, depending on the opponent. I cannot stand getting either chaotic faction though. It infuriates me to no end having to play like an ulf on hard-core drugs because both of them h...

Re: You think a faction is overpowered? Come here!

in default era,every faction is balanced,but some factoins can get really hard battles i will put here,the second one will need to think alot to win undead vs northeners(not really much to say about this one) knalgans vs elves(both need to think on this one,this is maybe the hardest fight in MP in ...

Re: Bold New Maps

Just thought I'd bring up a query on one of the new maps, thought it was a potential imbalance that P1 could steal P2's far left village (at least as knalgans,drakes and UD) on unfolding space. The save is from a ladder game I was observing when they disconnected. Looking at the map though, you shou...

Re: What do you if your teammate is a newb?

Normally number 2. I will generally try to ask my opponent why they do what they do if it looks bad. Normally upon questioning they leave, leaving me to concede, or try number 6. And upon reflecting, I now begin to understand why I avoid 2 vs 2 these days, It's pretty rare for me to get a partner ab...

Re: Balance Ideas (Unit Changes)

Going back to the 2vs2 balancing issue...was there any reason WHY they'd do it through 2vs2 and not through 1vs1? Because that confuses me a fair bit, as 2 different factions (or so I'd have thought) could cover up the weakness of the other, or something to that effect.

Re: How to play - Drakes vs Rebels - Huumy

I'd almost have the oracle over the flare in terms of leveling importance as it levels quicker, and makes it so much harder for elves to defend when you can unleash high magical damage to cut through their forest defence at any time but day. It's true that saurians level easier, but in "what units ...

Re: How to play - Drakes vs Rebels - Huumy

Hmm been a while since I've played this matchup but I think a few people here are underestimating the importance of saurians, somewhat.

Re: The south guard - 2 questions

Hmm to answer your questions. 1. If I remember correctly, you have one scenario where you can recruit elves before going into the depths. A really good strategy here is to level 2 QUICK shamans into sorcereress' before proceeding, so they can move somewhat in the cave, while using their arcane attac...

Northerners still giving me grief.

As the title says, though it's more playing them in multiplayer I have the problem with. I'm pretty sure I know the main 2 reasons that cost me in this game, though I wouldn't mind the input anyways. Mainly the failed first night and the reckless charge after fighting back... The replay is me vs Cac...

Re: B.U.R.S. (Bizarre and Unusual Recruit Styles)

A mobile massacre on Sulla's Ruins. I was loyalists (P2). Opponent was undead (P1). Upon discovering he was undead. Cavalry and Fencer spam ensured. Admittedly, it was a poor assault up the right by him, and he had too many bats IMO, but it's a good watch nonetheless, especially for -Shocking RNG ab...
