I'll approve that name for the P1 Orcish leader. For the P2, you're going to have to do better than "It's Neki, Baby!" (Or I can name it)

;)

I don't want them both to have the same basic name. The closest I'd be willing to go to that would be something like Iken (backwards), or some other scramble. Also, I think "overpowered" is funny, but as someone's title, it's a little bit too meta. :P

Just make something for P2 that starts with neki then.

If I am not allowed to have neki in both of the names of P1 and P2 Orcish Leaders then just forget it... After all I only have 11/36 probability for my nickname to be displayed 11/36 = 1-5/6*5/6 on a single unit from the 36 or more on the map. I don't think it is an exaggerated visibility like you are trying to say.

EDIT: You can even name P2 neki the lame :P I don't mind
POST EDIT: or neki the shark, just to prepare the people for my epic future win of the KOTF ;)'
POST POST EDIT: or neki the camper :) or neki the banker actually you could put P1 neki the camper and P2 neki the banker, I don't mind :) just put both of P1 and P2 on the orcish leader starting with neki ;)

Not trying to say that at all. It's only about realism. I know people often don't choose to play mirrors, but if they do, I don't really want to have two characters with the same name, fighting one another. That's why, if you notice, the P1 skelly has a different name than the P2 skelly, the P1 Saurian WC has a different name from the P2 Saurian WC, etc. Maybe a good compromise would be to call the other one Neki the Second, like he's the son of Neki the Brutal. Something like that. I'm not going to do Neki the Camper or Neki the Banker. Again, too meta, and you're not really a camper or banker, so that would be kind of stupid to permanently attach that to your name. :P

Other suggestions:

Neki the Savage
Neki the Punisher
Neki the Merciless
Neki the Brute
Neki the Crude

etc. :D

Done. :)

As soon as Dauntless chooses his unit(s), I'll release the newest version.

Hello doc,
I ugess ill take the loy archer, though i dont know how to reflect ranged firststrike in his name :D
MY initial idea was something like Dauntless hunter, but if you want to point out the ability, perhaps leadership would be easier to go with, such as Dauntless the Overlord and ......dunno, only idea was something like DL, Leader of his folk or something like that, but it seems a tad clumsy, yu might have a better idea here.

Mourning over his favourite WC and waiting for your reply

I misunderstood, but Dauntless explained to me that he actually wanted the Saurian Soulless WCs. Because saurians tend to have names like "Rxxskssrzs" :P (and these ones already have names in that vein) we agreed to change their titles from "The Hunter" and "The Stalker" to "The Dauntless."

So, they will be "Rzzrt the Dauntless" and "Tyxxrn the Dauntless."


Well, there you have it, our two TGT winners immortalized for all time! :D

And here it is. Notable changes:

Loyalists- Their spearman is replaced with a sergeant. I like this change, because I think Loys needed a bit of a powerup on this map, but his relatively low exp. may make him a bit too easy to level. However, I can't seem to figure out the WML to increase his exp., so, if anyone does know and would like to post it, that would be wonderful. :) For the time being, I think the unit is fine, seeing as it's relatively frail, and has the slow trait (which it will retain, even if the exp. does increase). The two woodsmen also now have the mechanical trait, and have been given the name "Clockwork Boy." :lol2:

Drakes- Their clasher was replaced with a slow, dim, resilient, strong fighter named Rawffus the Dim.

Northerners- Orcish leader renamed Neki the Brutal/Neki the Brute. (TGT tournament prize)

Undead- Skellies no longer have the resilient trait. Saurian Soulless given "the Dauntless" title (for both players). (TGT tournament prize)

Elves- No changes that I can recall offhand.

Knalgans- No changes.

As some people know, I've been working on "decorating" the 1.9x version of Aethermaw. It took for freakin ever, but I think I've finally finished. Here are some preview shots: (And no, this isn't animated. :P Conceptually, they're freeze-frames of other battles that Sulla is watching.)

I'll post the real thing in a day or two, after I make a few small adjustments.

:)
