Posts to the game: great game with a great player - i had to move fast and there was a nice battle to take a dragon dwell protected by 2 ice dragons and ~10 little ones. it also had a raven to trigger autocombat ): economy and gold upkeep was the way to win, as it is the case with rogues after the update/balance with upkeep of units under mind control x2.

the dragon dwell 5 raven to kill one was an idea that i believed will not work  i did it anyway and was very surprised

To xlnt
Yes, I had to surrender because of lack of gold and so 4 my T3 units with gold medals deserted.  
Good game and kind rush from you.  Especially it was very clever to use stack with 5 ravens to kill mine one  which was protecting the dragon dwelling.
I made at least 1 mistake at this game - I shouldn't take a quest from my second city with a vassal as a reward when I was too far from from it. Thus I got less resources and this city was not growing very long time.
Though maybe I shouldn't go such early to the third city at all

I'll comment after i login tonight (: maybe Skuns' armies deserted or

i kinda risked a ... (somewhat) fast attack that might have ruined Skuns economy ): I got lucky as always

it was a nice game with good pace, we did 2-3 turns per day at some days (; but we never did a big battle

the most enjoyable moment was (for me) when i realized we're both having the same race/class combo

No, time not yet over. I expected your game to last until the deadline, now we're in trouble with the main branch not yet updated with v1.22. lol

Published on Tue, 31 Oct 2017 15:42:49 +0100

what happened? is the time over?

Well, good game, xlnt.  My congratulations. <smiletext23> As the score shows you led all the match.   
Good luck in the next rounds))

We do know that there is more than one way to determine the winner (;
assumptions are not needed

Published on Sun, 22 Oct 2017 18:49:44 +0200

Ok, so I expect your game will be decided by score... Please keep that in mind.

Hi. We've just played turn 23-th.

Published on Sat, 21 Oct 2017 18:52:23 +0200

Hi there! Which turn did you reach? About 17 days left.

Published on Wed, 11 Oct 2017 20:26:56 +0200

no problemo

To xlnt
Hi. I'll try to play my turn as soon as possible but maybe I can't play till Saturday. Sorry for this 

Published on Thu, 05 Oct 2017 12:02:29 +0200

i use the debug mode (; Hiliadan told me to (or some other judge, or maybe Jean..)
we might be at turn 13 only but we may not go to turn 20 - hehe
aahh - i remember a game where i managed to end an opponent at turn 6-ish

we managed to find one another and we know now that we're in a mirror match!

To Marcus
Thanks for your help to xlnt. <smiletext23> I thought it was known thing how to do it so I didn't mention detailed way 

Published on Thu, 05 Oct 2017 05:07:04 +0200

To Hiliadan
Your guess is good. <smiletext1> But as for me I don't use debug mode <smiletext6>

Published on Thu, 05 Oct 2017 01:49:34 +0200

The notification is because one uses debug mode and the other not, no worry about it.

Published on Wed, 04 Oct 2017 20:38:12 +0200

Happy it worked!

The other problem is a bit harder to understand, but could be some kind of desync error. I would post this one in the forum, because it sounds very strange, that both of you keep getting this error.

Happy Hunting to both of you, turn 12 is not very far <smiletext0> Up the pace so we don't need to rule a winner by score!

Published on Wed, 04 Oct 2017 19:55:55 +0200

Marcus - you're the best, how do you guys know this stuff (:

game is on, i too get the msg. Skuns reffers to - i'm using the mode as on the link i send. i deleted all old mode files just 1 hour ago and subscribed again so i guess the files i use now are brand new and whatever the mode needs is downloaded.. . but i still get the msg. that says my mode is a newer version.

anyway - i'll play the turn - thanks for the help everyone!

Hi Xlnt,

Since I understand you already started the turn, got a crash, reinstalled the mod, you might need to clear your PBEM save folder (C:\Users\marcu_000\Documents\My Games\AoW3\Profiles\marcuspers1\PBEM) and look for the game ID which is your tournament match, and delete all the files with that ID (should be 3 files with a 5 digit number).

Let me know if that works!

To xlnt
By the way, every time after your turn I got the message about updating current version of the mod. And when I'd clicked on the button "Yes" and played my turn, at the every next turn I got the same notification))
So it seems like your version of the mod was not directly from the server (maybe it was the intermediate version of the beta mod which Hiliadan created recently before its update). And you need delete user files, as Hiliadan said, before resubscribing the mod.

P.S. While you have troubles with the mod I turned off the timer again))

Published on Wed, 04 Oct 2017 18:24:58 +0200

i did, we're using 1.22 beta of the balance mode, correct? the game says i'm using some other mode and doesn't let me play the turn ):

Published on Wed, 04 Oct 2017 12:48:31 +0200

@xlnt: I think you need to unsubscribe, remove the files of the mod in your UserContent folder and then resubscribe to get them downloaded again.

Hi. Since we can continue this session I turned on the 2-day timer 

Published on Tue, 03 Oct 2017 19:04:19 +0200

just did - the issue is with missing different race pictures when using the beta - how can i install the beta of the balance mode again?

about the whole game: steam has this thing where it checks what files are missing and it repairs a game by downloading whatever is needed so i did that and i tested it - it's working.

this stupid tuneup program seeks out same files and frees up .. resources by deleting dublicates - i should have used brain and not just click ok when asked but anyway ):

i'll go check steam on info how to re-install my mode and test again

Published on Tue, 03 Oct 2017 15:49:55 +0200

Forgot to say: xlnt, please try to reproduce your issue in a single player game to make sure it does not crash. You probably need to re-install AoW3.

Published on Tue, 03 Oct 2017 09:05:00 +0200

thanks and sorry for my stupidity, all of this was avoidable ):

Published on Tue, 03 Oct 2017 02:13:25 +0200

Ok, you can continue! The proofs provided by xlnt were judged adequate so he gets a warning for reload justified by adequate proof.
35 days left.

Published on Mon, 02 Oct 2017 15:50:24 +0200

Just sent a PM to the 2 other judges with my opinion so you should be ready to start again soon.

@Skuns: as usual, please send by PM anything that might be relevant (like if you were about to enter a big battle).

Published on Fri, 29 Sep 2017 22:39:52 +0200

game crashed:

i used avg's tuneup program and seems like it deleted some files that AoW3 uses, i may have to re-install my game ):

anyway - waiting for the judges and sorry for the issue

Hi, my friend <smiletext1>
I must inform you that I'm going to the vacation trip from 24-th of September to 1-st of October. I'll try to play my turns as soon as possible but maybe I'll have not an internet connection there at all at this period. 

P.S. I can't wait wait for our meeting on the map  to know which combo are you using to beat me

Hi there! Skuns, you're hosting. <smiletext0> Please send your class/race to Fistandantilus, Marcuspers and/or me, and then post the settings. Please remember that you're hosting with the beta branch of the balance mod, not the main branch.
