AlX, can you read this? (using the "Viewable only for team members" option)



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.

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 !



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: http://www.the-battlefield.co...

No on the scores, I clicked "return to the map" and haven't figured out how to get to the scores after that =) But I do have some screenshots of the map at the day 35.

Surface (I haven't captured the south of the map, Castaneda and Jundland were actually a bit lower):

Nice! Would you have a general screenshot of the map? And screenshots of the scores?

Alright, the report. First of all: this was epic! Secondly, where do I even start…? The problem is there was just too many things happening in this game for me to attempt properly describing all of them. Ever since we hit the day 20 almost every turn brought something interesting, excited and/or unexpected, and going through all the details would take quite a long time for me to write and for you to read, so I’ll try to be relatively brief and reduce the story to the most interesting and impactful events.

Things went wrong for us right from the start. Even before that actually: out initial plan was to have me and Jean both start in the UG and leave the surface to Nook and Melciar, but Jean forgot to choose the underground start, leaving me there alone. Then both me and Nook managed to lose our cavalry early on and were getting by with the help of Jean’s Raise militia. Melciar, however, outdid all of us on the day 3:


Which had obvious negative impact on his clearing, which affected his economy, with affected his capacity as our designated scout.

I managed to restore a viable army faster than my teammates by getting lucky with the quests from my vassal. It gave me a quest for a beetle, I completed it, and right when I had planned to capture the city it gave me another one, for another beetle =) Two beetles, as alive as they were, still allowed to start clearing some nice places. Eventually the leader and the hero started ghouling more units, which allowed going into nicer sites and ghouling nicer units… You know how it goes =)

On the day 24 something very frightening happened. A planetary alignment occurred, and at the same time Seer completed Sage. We all imagined the worst: that Seer went straight for the Eldritch horror and got the spell via the cosmic event. That possibility sent us into a slight panic mode and caused us to search for ways to get access to T4s of our own as soon as possible.

I’ll get back to the T4 rush a bit later, but for now let me tell you a story of the dragon dwelling. It occurred at about this time chronologically and turned out to be one of the decisive things that changed the fate of the game =) Here it is:


They gave me a quest somewhere around the day 20. Initially I wasn’t really planning to go there, because the dwelling itself was a bit out of the way and I considered it would be better to simply buy their allegiance and continue marching towards where we had thought our enemies were, but the chance to ghoul some giants outweighed the strategic concerns. While I was walking towards the dwelling, the dragons became impatient and offered quests to both Nook and Jean, which made the location of the dwelling much more appealing for a necromancer. By the day 28 I completed all three quests, and immediately after that the dragons offered Jean a new one =) Unfortunately, the ghouling wasn’t as successful as I had hoped, but still, I managed to get a fire giant and an ogre there. And, most importantly, two wyverns: a fire one and a frost one. Not kidding =) You’ll see the role they played a bit later.

I still had to vassal the dragons though, and in order to save some money (which, as you could see on the previous screenshot, was a bit of a problem for me), I decided to build an outpost right next to the dragons. Found a very nice place for it too, and because of the central location it was planned to serve as an operational base for dispatching builders and settlers to the high-level sites that the underground was surprisingly rich with this time.


The population boost came from Castaneda, which he wasn’t particularly happy about =)


Back to the perceived Horror threat. In order to speed things up I’ve decided to split my army in two. Having no idea where Seer’s army was (at that point we thought it was very likely for him to be located in the UG as well, which turned out to be true) and having crappy scouting in general it was kind of a risky move, but desperate times called for desperate measures. So I ignored everything else and went straight to the sites that could help to get a Reaper summon.

On the day 30 my secondary army cleared a Sphynx temple, finishing the research of Deathbringer. Right after that my main army attacked the Pandora box in an attempt to get another planetary alignment. None of us were sure if it’s possible to get two cosmic events of the same kind in a single game, but it was worth the shot. It didn’t work though, I got two crappy choices instead. So I had to finish the research manually, and by manually I mean by clearing another Sphinx temple and a Wizard tower by the main army. The Wizard tower, however, presented a very interesting reward:


I still went for casting a Reaper first though. At that point it looked like Seer’s Sage had been a false alarm: if he had researched Eldritch horror, he would have already casted it. So I proceeded to cast a Reaper, because getting a Paragon for a Phoenix seemed a bit redundant =)

From there things escalated very quickly. We were concerned about this Archon dwelling falling into the wrong (Seer’s) hands, and capturing it was my next goal. We decided not to bother buying it because it was along the way and was considered cheaper to simply take by force.


However, right when I was about to clear the old quests and capture the dwelling, Seer beat me to it. As it turned out, one of the quests had been active, and he completed it, getting both Archons as vassals and a Titan as a unit reward. A battle that should have been very easy suddenly turned out to be very dangerous, but we had to attack right there and then while Seer’s army was wounded. The losses were substantial, but it was worth it:



Meanwhile the other frontlines were packed with action as well. First of all, let’s turn our attention to Jean. He cleared a bunch of dungeons and was building Berserkers with Killing momentum, and on the day 35 he used these forces to surprise Spock’s leader in the center of the map.



A few days later Melciar gathered some forces and managed to defeat one of Jundland’s armies.


Unfortunately, while he was gathering forces, he decided to visit a dungeon, which didn’t turn out well for his leader (unfortunately, I’m missing the screenshot of the battle result). And that’s how in just two turns 3 out of 8 players on the map were relocated to the void =)


Just a few days later Jundland launched a counter-attack on Melciar. He sneaked across the sea and attacked Melciar’s homeland with a very powerful leader, two giants and a flyer:


We thought that was it: Melciar had a small garrison in his throne, but it was no match for Jundland’s army. And all we could do to help him was to cast a couple more Initiates by Jean’s Raise militia, which probably wouldn’t have helped, considering Jundland’s leader’s 60% Shock protection. If Jundland had attacked immediately, that could be the end of Melciar, but he hesitated and Melciar and Jean managed to organize two stacks of ranged units to garrison the throne. Which allowed to hold the throne long enough to allow Melciar’s leader to return from the void and escape.

Now, remember the two wyverns I’ve mentioned earlier? They had joined a Feathered serpent ghouled at one of the Lost cities and a Lost soul that had been hovering nearby to form a scouting army, mainly responsible for small mischiefs like capturing and razing Castaneda’s underground outpost. But then one day they stumbled upon Spock’s throne that had been relocated to what I assume to be former Seer’s village:


At that moment it had been two days since Spock returned from the void, so that wasn’t an immediate game over for him, but he had to be somewhere nearby, and adding a Phoenix to this army provided an unexpected threat to his leader. A threat that was acted upon the next turn:



However, that wasn’t the end of this army’s story. Seer moved his home army to capture back Spock’s former throne (not sure why he did it without disjuncting Scorched earth first though) and got outmaneuvered by the faster flying army, which proceeded to capture his throne:



He tried to take it back, but Phoenix is a hell of a weapon against a Theo hero and a bunch of Elders:


The same turn the location of Seer’s leader was discovered by trying to attack his last big city:


Attacking right there and then could have been very dangerous, but luckily, I had the reinforcements coming in, so I didn’t have to attack right there and then =)


Not willing to wait for the siege to happen, Seer attacked my army in the field and lost:


Let’s get back to the surface. The day before Seer’s demise Jundland finally captured Melciar’s throne:


However, that was probably his last big success in the game. The next turn his home army encountered Jean’s berserkers in all their glory:



From there it was just a couple of days to (basically undefended) Jundland’s throne. Castaneda moved towards it with his army of Exalteds, probably planning to get the city back:



However, while Castaneda’s army was out in the field, Jean’s secondary army climbed out of the underground and launched an attack on Castaneda’s cities, including his throne:



This caused Castaneda to turn back to save his throne without fighting for Jundland’s:


While hurrying back, Castaneda split his forces by leaving slower units behind, but Exalteds proved not to be very dangerous on their own and Castaneda’s army was annihilated in the field:



At this point the outcome was pretty much decided. We controlled most of the map; Jundland and Castaneda had some armies, but no cities and no real way to fight back. Castaneda tried attacking us through the north-western continent, but he encountered the forces lead by Nook and me, the forces he had no chance against, so he surrendered. Jundland spend a few more days running around the map, but eventually was caught by Jean’s Manticores under Death march.


So… yeah, that was the brief…-ish version of events =) Kudos to those who are still reading this. I hope I’ve managed to capture at least some of the charm of this game and you’ve enjoyed its chronicles. As a bonus for the most patient readers, I’m gonna finish this with a couple of screenshots that bear no importance whatsoever, but that I find kind of amusing.

First of all, I present you the final residence of Melciar that he occupied after vacating his throne:


And finally, here’s the legion of builders joining the final hunt for Jundland:

Correct, this match was not played.

Team Zia was available to play from the start.
By the time Shadow and Flame were ready there
was not enough time to play the game.

So no class/race was used.

(:

The format of the tournament dictates that we should use each class and i am the reason why as this is something i wanted and demanded since day1 on the BF site (year, year and a half now?).

There is no excuse for my actions - 2 turns in a row i moved my units away from my capitol not 1 step at a time but for the full path - by double clicking the end position...

anyway - thank you Banshee for killing me swiftly and not letting me make a fool of myself for an extended period (:

Hope to play with/vs you soon and good luck with the rest of the matches!

I think it´s not that easy to say that Necro Needs further BIG nerfs.
You Play this race very good and have much experience in it.

I fear further nerfs will make this race very hard to Play for not so good (Necro) Players?

Referring to Whispers of the Fallen (I have still no experience in that) we may think about to nerf it further because I think the most Players didn´t rely on that much in the past anyway.

In our Tournament Game, Earl got only T1 due to ghouling strike, so it was not that important for him at the stage we quitted.
And I want to make T4 mind Control immune anyway, so you shouldn´t have got the giant in the 1st place

Maybe we Need more games to make conclusions?

But yes, Ghouled Units shouldn´t start with full HP, because their bodies were smashed, burned, shot, bitten, stabbed and beaten before they died. And we can think about 0 MP for them.
This could be nice for balancing because this would harm good Players more than others I think.
The simple reason is that unexperienced Players are more cautious and don´t do that much fights per turn anyway (waiting for undead healing in the strategic turn etc)

This was a 2vs2 with AlX and me vs Lightform and Jundland. The game used v1.18 of the PBEM & Single Player Balance Mod.
AlX started UG and I started on the surface to maximize clearing and expansion potential. Lightform and Jundland started both on the surface and Lightform had a bad starting area with rivers West and rapids (unpassable except for floating or flying units) south. His "vassal" city was on the other side of the rapids, so that was really an unlucky start. He also told me Jundland did not give him space to clear but instead cleared where he wanted to clear. To make all this worse, Lightform lost many units in early fight and eventually lost everything (as in our previous game). He made the mistake to tell that to me so I rushed toward him as fast as I could and when I realized rapids would slow me down, I sent a fast attack stack with 1 Draconian Flyer (evolved), 1 floating Fey (reward) and a few Lost Souls. By turn 16, I had reached him, taken his outpost and his throne and he suicided his leader (he had 2-3 units left anyway).

To illustrate that Necro is OP, I did some stats every turn of the game for turn 4 to 16 (if not said otherwise, when I say "1 level up", I mean, 1 for the hero and 1 for the leader):
- turn 4: lvl 5 with both leader and hero, cleared 4 sites (double level-up for both)

- turn 5: lvl 6, cleared 3 sites (1 level-up)
- turn 6: Whispers of the Fallen cast, the party begins! Lvl 6 (no level up), cleared 2 = 75RP gained thanks to Whispers
- turn 7: lvl 7, cleared 2 sites (1-level-up), 1 hatchling became Flyer, 51RP
- turn 8: lvl 9, cleared 3 sites (1 to 2 level-up), 49RP, 1st ghouled unit

- turn 9: lvl 9, cleared 2 sites (0 level-up), 51RP, Harbinger of Death researched
- turn 10: lvl 10, cleared 2 sites (1-level-up), 36RP
- turn 11: lvl 11, cleared 2 sites (2 level-up), 108RP, Giant Dwelling cleared, ghouled a T4 Giant (defending the Dwelling)
- turn 12: lvl 11, cleared 1 site (0 level-up), 3RP, 2 ghouled units (including a T3 Panther)
- turn 13: lvl 11, cleared 0 site (0 level-up), 24RP (from clearing elsewhere, I'm counting only the clearing by my leader + Necro hero here)
- turn 14: lvl 13, cleared 2 sites (1 to 2 level-up), 84RP
- turn 15: lvl 13, cleared 2 sites (1 level-up from 12 to 13 for the hero), 29RP
- turn 16: lvl 13, cleared 3 sites (0 level-up), 36RP

So in average I'm at 1 level per turn until level 13 (it slows down in the end because I focus more on ghouling and getting XP for my key units rather than my heroes) and about 35 RP/turn thanks to Whispers of the Fallen. This is massive and snowball into getting key techs like Harbinger of Death, Necromancy up to level VII, Healers of the Dead, etc. There is clearly an issue with Necro, despite nerfs present in the balance mod (as of v1.18). v1.2 will address some additional issues (like ghouled and raised units having full MP) but others will remain, one of the biggest being that Whispers of the Fallen provides too many RP.

After having killed Lightform, I moved toward Jundland. In the meantime, AlX was expanding and clearing UG but he had had a difficult start, losing units in early fight, so his army never reached the battlefield (though one of his crow took Jundland's throne). It quickly appeared that Jundland's army was not in his lands any more and I had an easy time taking his vassal (looks like he didn't build an outpost?).
As I was starting to realize he was probably getting close to my land for a counter-attack, he appeared at my gates on turn 23. I had already sent my rapid attack stack back toward my throne at that time so it was able to reach it in 3 turns (by using some Berries and water structure which regenerates MP). My leader had left the main army several turns before and travelled alone on his flying mount to reach my rapid attack stack when it was in Jundland's territory. Now my leader was heading my rapid attack stack to counter Jundland.
In parallel, my 2ndary stack, led by my 2nd hero - a Sorcerer with a reanimator staff (!) found in a cleared site - was also moving back toward my throne. I had also launched the production of T3 Flyers (I had started the production line many many turns before).



Jundland had split his stacks: his leader and a Dreadnought on one side, and his Necro hero on another. I positioned myself to be able to strike both (depending on his movements). On turn 26, he kept his stacks split as he had done for 3 turns (big mistake!) and I was able to attack with my leader + Champion Flyer from my rapid attack stack (the floating units had not enough MP), my 3 Flyers from my throne (using Haste Berries on the way) and my 7 units with my Sorcerer. Jundland had no throne so the fight ended very quicky when 2 Flyers cut his leader to pieces on round 2 of the fight.



This was a very unbalanced game as Lightform had a bad starting position and did mistakes in tactical fight, and Jundland played Necro badly (level 5 and 6 after turn 20...), but still it showed me what I wanted to see and demonstrate: Necro needs further balancing.

AlX, can you read this? (using the "Viewable only for team members" option)



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 !



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: http://www.the-battlefield.co...

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.
