Spiders - mortal enemies of draghens XD

Also, after playing the 22 turn match I am pretty sure Karphiol Valley is broken, and not because it killed my spider XD I will write about it now.


First of all the map is way too big for the income and number of units you have. The map is huge yet you still have only 7 villages, if that wasn't enough the distances between villages are huge as well giving attacker and some builds a significant advantage, slow units like HI struggle here. The low income also means that apart from low unit count it is hard to switch your unit composition once you see enemy build.
But all that is not the end of the world, although unbalanced I am pretty sure it would be possible to play around it. I feel like the worst flaw is the village at the side of your first castle, the most forvard village close to the border you have. The thing is that it is very easy to take, very hard to defend and once taken it can be very easy to fortify the place so that retaking the village can become almost impossible. Losing that village can become a death sentence, since in PYRA most people use mixed builds it also makes it way easier to defend it than it would be in default.

You can distract your enemy and threaten 2 villages, the one i wrote of and the one next to it closer to the center (actually if you wnat you can threaten all villages since distances between them are so enormous, it would bei mpossible to defend them all), the thing is that he village closer to the border is so well fortified from your side, having chokepoints water and swamp in its way, and a lot of good terrain around, that without fast units once you commit to defense on the more central village behind the water and swamp line you can not defend the border village, and it will most likely fall, being impossible to retake, teh village behind it might soon be the next to fall because of the "wall" of impassable mountains, water and swamp separating the 2 villages. This is pretty much what happened to me, AND i remember doing it in one of my very few PYRA games i played on this map, in fact I just used a few units to take it, retaking it has become extremely hard for my opponent. So in short unless you outplay your enemy heavily unless he has roughtly equal number of units andt he vilage is taken, once fortified your whole defense collapses.

Updated the leader chart; already less than half of them remains in active service.

I did not disclose the deadline for Round 4 yet, but of course it does not mean time is unlimited.
23th June is the official ending.

I was sorry for yanos because in the beginning many attacks did not find.

Once again, round announcement is delayed by one day, as there is one unplayed match. Messages are sent to the involved players.
In case of inactivity, i can do the announcement tomorrow evening.
The delay is not allowed to go beyond Sunday.

See you all tomorrow!
