tonight im going to present you one of my most precious and finest games so far:

The Quest for Drake Mockery. Image

when u think of drakes, what might be the most horrible unit u can imagine... hmmmmmmmm?

yes
right, its this perennial woody plant hereImage that brought the downfall of 13 brave drakes and before my opponent spit "it is taking too much time, bye." and left before i could even set another date for finishing our beautiful little game.

enjoy....
Awesome replay as well :D Needless to say, you pwned his ass.

Not like I could actually TRY the burs anyway. :annoyed: (Got mahself banned ageen!! :augh: )

im going to look at the game soon, but why did u get banned ?

imho clashers & augurs r quite necessary very often when playing drakes, not unusual. but against undeads id buy it =)




ahaaaaaaaaaaaaa i know that replay quite well, unfortunately i was playing red at this time might have worked out for me if i didnt move my archer like i moved my archer =)

You can look up his previous posts to see why he got banned. Let's try not to derail this thread, eh?

I think an all-Saurian drake recruit would be more interesting, and an all-fighter recruit might be more effective. What's the theme/idea behind clasher/skirmisher?

Indeed. To put an end to idle speculation, he was impersonating a moderator. No more will be said on this, so move on.

lol... yes, there was some obvious cheating going on there, Rigor. :P

Loved the ghoul/ WC spam. I might throw in a few bats too and try it out sometime. Excellent replay!

this time i got a special gem for you guys:

i recruited only 9 augurs and 5 fighters in total, playing vs orcs and dwarves. ally was an elf.

now you might say, thats not bizzare and unusual enough because its a 2v2 and your ally could compensate for your strange recruits.

thats why there was this other obstacle in my way to beat the game:

he was not compensating for anything because he was a complete noob !!!!!!!! Image

but see for yourselves :)

Ideas:

Loyalists:
No Pierce= Fencers, HI, Mages, and Cavalry
Ranged Only= Bowmans and Mages only

Rebels:
No Elves= Mage, Wose, and Merman Hunters
No Pierce= Wose, Mage, and Shamans

Northerners:
No Orc= Goblins, Wolf Riders, Trolls, and Nagas
Ranged Only= Archers and Assassins only

Undead:
Skeletal Army= Skeleton and Skeleton Archer only

Knalgans:
Axes only= Fighters and Ulfs only
Ranged Only= Thunderers and Footpads only

Drakes:
Saurian Army= Augur and Skirmishers only

You forgot the poacher from the Knalgan ranged :lol2:
Technically, you could probably include Goblin spearmen in the northerner ranged, as they do have a ranged attack.

thats a big list, i started with 1:

loyalists no pierce

when looking at the game, u realize that the 1 mage was also not necessary. leveled almost every cavalry XD

but what i ACTUALLY wanted to say was, there should be a challenge room where almost impossible combos are tried out when facing a certain fraction, like defeating undeads with tons of assassins, or using lots of ulfserkers in a dwarfish encounter with drakes. something really hard to win.

btw i enjoy your comments on the games a lot, so DELIVER them :mrgreen:
