Posts to the game:

Was meant to be a LMP game but due to time-zone issues, we had problems to arrange a time suitable, so we decided to do a PBEM instead. Had some bad luck/played it poor in the beginning, but was lucky to find an inn and recruited a elf bowman and draconian archer, they made a big difference and proved invaluable members of my army to the bitter end. Opted to research inflict stun for support units as opposed to summon horrors, so i was a mere 100 knowledge points away from researching the first t6 spell and subsequently summon the first t4 unit!  Once I knew where Jedbeans was, I sent a scouting party of 5 quick T3 units to the north of his domain, and sent my main army to the south west of his domain, I'm not really sure if the diversion worked or had any impact, but I took 2 of his cities so maybe his moral for final battle was crippled. Thanks for the game and let me know if you want to have another game, maybe a 2vs2 with us in the same team instead.

After reading my opponents detailed description I thought I should add a bit more. As a new player I was curious about macro strategy, specifically, can a rouge player go for lots of city expansion and then build a ton of upgraded irregular units to swarm. I researched to bard and then using the irregular track upgraded movement and training plus back stab. This wasn't a good test because being a new player who at the time didn't own any of the dlc, I overeached with main hero stacks on less then three treasure sites, each tome losing heroes and key units. The worst of these was when I spotted my opponents army and instead of attacking his hero with my main stack, I decided to get a regrowth buff and go against the grim reapers who I had never fought before and wails stunned all my units and promptly slaughtered them

After that it was short order over. Still, my consolation was that even without these massive blunders, I probably would have lost hard to the many flying monsters summoned that utterly destroyed my cities quickly. Many lessons learned.

I made some big mistakes early on and then had some trouble because I was playing too much! despit those challenges, marcus is a great person to play against, very frendly and helped me with my strategy.

Game time?
Hi Jared,

It seems the game time given here is not entirely accurate!
You are stated as available 21-01 CET (GMT +1).
And my play time is 19-23 CET - so we should be able to get the game started, but I think from your message below you are in EST, which mean your game time is my night (03-07) or so.

I will await your reply, but if correct, I think I better leave my spot to someone else!

Have a nice Sunday.

Hi Jared!
Yes, game is hosted now.
I can play until 23 CET, and then I suggest we pause it, or close to finished I can perhaps go on until midnight <smiletext0>

Wife might pull the plug though, hehe

I can host
Hi Jed,

I have both expansions so I can host.
Do you want to have a small map with no UG? I think it will be more fun with medium, so it takes a bit longer before we meet? But your game, your rules <smiletext0>

1v1 duel practice-
I'm looking to practice my macro game tonight for the upcoming 1v1 tournament. I am a rookie multiplayer gamer and I am interested in playing someone with experience to learn from. 

Preferred settings: Small map, no underground, simultaneous , 5 minute turns, tactical vs human only.

Start time between 9:00- 10 pm EST 

I actually don't own any of the expansion s, so it's also preferable if you start the game with these settings.

Also, I have small children so there is a chance the game may need to be put on pause if they wake up <smiletext0>
