Try giving yourself a starting advantage in terms of gold, and then "forgetting" to mention it. ;)

It's a reversed Emblem, so it won't get confused with the Emblem as easily. Maybe I should change it to an LWSS or something.

Lol, talking about that, you wouldn't believe it, but already happened several times to me. I join the game, guy sets his gold to 800 and starts asap...

hm well u know

u can win with only drakes even against good opponents, depends mainly on the map/fraction u play against. u dont need to invest in too many saurs when u fight mainly during daytime and retreat always and ever when its night. but generally i think this thread is not to be taken too serious ;)

It's possible, however easier with Saurians.

Also, I hate being a nazi, but it's "faction" not "fraction."

i dont think that u cant use both words. faction like facere lat to make and fractus lat broken seem to be both valid for that purpose.

like, faction people who do things together e.g. a tribe
or, fraction like, a part of a multitude of races e.g. wesnoth? ;)

Uhhh... no, it's Faction... no further discussion... I have to agree witht the girl here, Saurians are extremely usefull, and sure, you can win by using only drakes... as when you use orcs you could win with only goblings and trolls, but thats not the idea...
EDIT: Btw, I know it's a "he", I'm jk, just a little joke we have... :mrgreen: yeah...

LMFAO

This was so funny

At first I thought, wow humble much, but as I read on I thought, This guy's a loser, then I thought about it and realized that it was a joke. Made me laugh for several minutes. Thanks for the day brightening!

Cheerfully,

LOL, at first I thought you were serious. I was thinking, attacking a dark adept with a burner at night? Nice thread guys. By the way, who in this post prefers drakes to any other faction? I'm torn between drakes and loyalists, or maybe rebels.

I like drakes the best because they always lose with my nOOB strategies. They really force me to learn to play the game right.

I have been a drake player since day one. Still haven't mastered them though. :lol2:
