We were expanding peacefully during the early game and my Necro's army of cadavers was getting bigger little by little, when around turn 10, Jundland's Crow appeared at our gates! He took one of my Outpost and I anticipated he would take a Fortress to raze it, I thus moved my flying hero close enough to strike his Crow but far enough to be out of his line of sight. It succeeded and I killed his Crow.

AlX did similar skirmishes against Jundland with his own Crows, with similar results (his Crows getting killed).

Apart from this, we had not much contact early game.
Around turn 17, AlX spotted one army of Jundland, relatively good for that turn. I had barely time to think that we may be a little late, that Jundland was already dead! His Throne was taken by independent while his leader was in the void. He was quite unlucky and maybe too reckless I guess because as the screenshot shows, he had the means to fight us at that time.

After the defeat of Jundland, the plan was clear: we had to rush Lightform before he could take control of all the old cities of Jundland, which had become independent. This was made even clearer by the fact that Lightform publicly mentioned his strategy of taking control of the cities.
So I moved as fast as possible in his direction with my undead army, starting to collect ghouls on the way. I reached him about turn 21-22, having sent a quick-intervention squad of flying and floating units, about 1 turn ahead of my main army. It seems he had just taken control of all the cities but had not yet had time to consolidate and build an army so I arrived just in time. I took one city and, seeing I had managed to get there before he had time to organize, Lightform surrendered.
Map of the game just after the victory (the map was played only on the surface, nobody was on the UG layer):

It was thus a pretty quick game. It's a shame but hopefully our rematch will last longer.

The Domain score shows clearly that rushing was the right decision because we would have been overwhelmed if we had given time to a Warlord to start pumping out Monster Hunters, Berserkers, etc.

The General score highlights the strength of Necro. I did not play a very good Necro that game but still, my military score exploded after turn 17-18.

And finally, the Knowledge score: I think I did not build any Laboratory and if you subtracts the 500 knowledge bonus I got from a site on turn 9, I still have 1306 on turn 30. 1300/29 = 45 more or less. I get in average +25/turn thanks to Whispers of the Fallen. And the true number is closer to +60/turn after I really start going. Whispers of the Fallen really gives a big advantage to Necro and you can see clearly that I beat all my opponents by a huge margin in the Knowledge race.
It clearly needs to be nerfed!

I made a critical error at about turn 4 of this game which lead to a stack wipe. I would have resigned on the spot if it had been 1v1. Then Jundland got completely eliminated. If I had not been wiped at the start then I may have been able to take his cities and still put up a fight, but alas. Rare game for me.

Probably not the best match for the guys, but to be honest I faired badly at this game as well  thumbs up for a re-match

Well, I once did the same against Earl and Gladis, but at the time I knew I had some time and resources to possibly pull it off. 
Let's see if Lightform gives us the same surprise 😊

Lightform told me he wanted to take us 2 vs 1 so let's crush him!

Seriously? independents captured your throne?

Guys, I will be off to the camp for about a week, starting from Sunday afternoon, so most likely I won't be able to take my turns then.
Please remove turn timer during that time!

Lightform, sorry about your turn skipped... I moved turn timer to 2 days, it should be enough for your Mondays and Tuesdays, or do you want a 3 days?

Have Checked it and found something. Test Blog.
But you get only email with "notifcation on" in you profil

Hi Lightform and Jundland Banshee! I saw the message from Lightform some days ago but I think you should not surrender that quickly! You have time to recover from whatever happened.

I do not receive email notifications when you end your turns (as was the case when we had duels, Lightform). Could you please check "Email Notifications" is checked on "On my turn" and maybe "Make Default" in the PBEM Settings of the game (you can access it by clicking on the gearing icon on the screen where you can load your turn). Thanks!

Yeah I just saw the Team name match , I agree with hiliadan !

Published on 2016-07-07 19:07:17

I'll be on business trip on 11-13 so I may need to put turn timer to 2 or 3 days.

By the way, your team name goes very well with ours!
I'm curious to see how this game goes.

Hi Lightform and Jundland Banshee! As proposed earlier, we are ready for a game! I hope you are too!
Jundland (and Lightform?), I'm not sure you updated your playtime, please do so, so that we can choose the best turn order for the game:
