Written by mahimka

I will just add that I received a terrible domain (in the screenshot) and only reached the vassal on turn 10+

I also did not get a normal hero with a combat heal (for the third time I had to take a warrior) and I did not take the third hero at all (the game stubbornly offered magicians, rogues and necromancers)

When I saw on the 12th move that Lobo had two 11th level theocrates, and he took the sphinx, I felt very sad (then my heroes were 5th and 5th levels). I also successfully sent the scout and Mr. Lobo to the side before the attack, which gave me a certain advantage in the final battle, and also killed 2 giants by exchanging them for a worker, and getting a matriarch and a worm for the quest. In general, a rogue against the background of a theocrat and a druid, especially if you do not buy a normal second hero, looks very weak.

Congratulation to Mahimka for attacking in the perfect moment and therefor taking the win.

What else should I say? The start went quite good but I havn't had any mana node in my realm. Not at my first settling spot and not at my vasall what causes a constant lack of mana. Anyways leveling and clearing went good and I was able to take an archon city (archon titan, 4 casters, archer) in turn 8. Only possible because of 2 theo heroes with holy champions. I decided to release the city as vasall because it was in the center of the UG and would have been a good spot to get control of the UG. Would have been, because Mahimka took the city with a crow one turn before it was released (turn 11) and razed it. Havn't had units there to take the city back in time. Meanwhile I cleared a sphinx temple and failed 5 out of 6 converts. Just converted an orc rogue until turn 12.

Meanwhile some scoundels caused some trouble around my throne. Got rid of the scoundels in turn 14 with a secondary stack (Rogue hero, 3 martyrs, 1 crusader) and planned to evolve the martyrs while finding a way through the UG to attack Mahimka from behind the frontline. Also converted an ice queen and a snow which in turn 14. Quite nice and used both to clear a lost city in turn 16 ( 2 converts agains feathered serpents failed).

After that I realised that I need to go a "loop". I couldn't fight for 2 turns (turn 17 and 18) to get back on track so all in all it was not worth clearing the lost city. These two turns without battles, levelling and rewards will hurt really hard some turns later...

Bad luck regarding converts came back. Failed two times on a big beetle and also 2 times on a charger in turn 19. After that I failed two times on a node serpent. I was in a hurry because the nagas at the center of the surface offered a quest some turns ago and there were only 2 turns left. Should have gone straight for that quest (not going for the lost city) to get the slither and peace with the nagas but no need to discuss about things that are already over...

I arrived just in time at the nagas but couldn't attack by myself. I was pretty sure the yetis would attack me and I can get the reward but............Mahimka was waiting nearby and killed my whole stack. Additionally before he attacked me he completed his own quest, got naga matriach as reward and a slither from the indies joined the battle against my troops (misplacement directly next to the nagas). My leader was nearby but not involved because I just caught a crow on the water with him (wyvern mount from lost city left on the screen). My ice queen got charmed with 15 % chance (naga matriach) and the convert from my hero failed with 50% chance. Fortuna wasn't on my side again...

Last chance was to evolve the 3-4 martys and attack Mahimka from behind through the UG and crush his eco as I planned some turns ago. Tried a risky battle with my secondary stack (hero, crusader, cherub and 3 martyrs) but lost hero and 2 martyrs against 2 wisps, 2 apprentices and a phantom warrior with static shield. No problem without static shield but my hero was stunned twice after getting attacked in melee. No need to continue after that battle. I retreated a turn later...

This game shows that statistics are not that important. I was ahaed and have had leader and 1st hero at level 12. Mahimkas leader and hero were at level 8 and 10 if I remember correctly.

Hey Mahimka, everything alright? Nearly a week has passed since your last turn. Best regards!

Hi! Please remember it's a new system: no more sending of class/race by PM, please input it directly on the game blog, which will check it's an allowed combo. Your opponent can't see it.

Once both class/race are set, the option to update the status to "ongoing" will appear, and you can then start.

Checking the settings is now the responsibility of the opponent.
