Posts to the game:

i was not having a good start and i took too many turns to read the map and go get a dwelling - instead of getting it with no loses and walk out of the fight with some great gains - i lost half my army and Hiliadan was right there on the next turn. we did a little mouse and cat and at some point i decided it was not worth it to chase around the map vs an opponent like him and i walked my units into a fight. He did some good moves and had very high levels on his heroes reasonably early on. well done - good luck with the rest of the games (;

Confirmed by Hiliadan
Videos will come after my VPN starts working again on my PC so that I can upload them to YouTube!
Was a fast match with a very specific geography, with two big land masses separated by a narrow piece of land (and rapids) with the central Naga Dwelling nearby, and then Mountains a bit further, so a perfect chokepoint. We played cat & mouse in this area as xlnt said.

I pointed out several things I think xlnt could have done differently in my last video during the debrief. But I have to say that I was kind of lucky to have a City size independent near me. It didn't give me a Quest before turn 14 after I bought it on turn 8, which was an handicap at first, but then it gave me 2 full stacks as Tributes and 3 Gryphon Riders as Quest reward (I paid attention to complete its Quests very fast too).

Was nice to play you finally xlnt!

Was a very different game from what I experienced before (just like Round 5 for me) so quite interesting on my side. I had a horrible start but managed to come back, you'll see in the videos.
Sorry that it was horrible for you.

one of the worst games i have played - hope Hiliadan can forgive me for the boring and lacking display of nothing

good luck with the rest of the tourney!

Ok thanks for the quick feedback. Yes, I'll record the full turn to be sure everything is fine.

Me and Fist agree the screenshot+video is sufficient to regard the reload with proof.

You are good to continue, maybe start record the turn from the initial game load to have evidence if crash happened directly. If it doesn't crash, you can turn off recording.

Hi xlnt, just got a crash immediately after loading. I took a screenshot and made a video, sending that to judges....

Hi! I'm at the airport to take the plane back to France for the holidays, so I don't dare to play my turn as my laptop crashed several times when not plugged in like I am now.
Should be able to play my turn tomorrow, sorry for the delay.
