    I don’t think incite revolt effects the undead’s morale, it effects the population, I figure by inciting revolt manifests as breaking the necromancer’s control of his undead population so they just wonder off, reducing the population.

    Makes sense.

    @ terrahero, it’s obvious that I don’t play much Rogue lol!

    Everything you say is infact correct. I haven’t faced Succubi yet, but in that particular playthrough, Stalkers were a real pain. They can go toe to toe with a Reaper.

    In the longer games, I think the T4 units will dramatically alter the balance – in particular, if they are spammed by a production class v. a casting class.

    This is yet another reason why I really think the game needs another racial T3 (so it is at least guaranteed to be producible by cities). As I’ve said elsewhere, I’d also investigate the possibility of boosting the T3 Elementals to T4 and calling them “Greater” Elementals or something.

    I’d rather have a new unit, the Greater Elemental, who is very rare, and very scary, indeed.

    Among other things that would pace the larger maps.

    That could be done, although it would be a lot of work, since there are now 9 races rather than six, and you don’t want everyone to have the same set up.

    You might want to do it in an either or fashion, so that you can have different strategies in different cities based on the situation.

    For example, High Elves could chose between the gryphon spire and an Emerald Dragon lair (if the farie dragon is to follow the black dragon in becoming obsidian). That unit would have roughly 75 or 80 hp, forestry, possibly forest concealment, some kind of farie fire ability, lesser flying, and high resistance but low defense and melee damage.

    So the unit would be great for archdruids (since it would be a monster and dragon), but bad for fighting them or warlords, or anything with holy champion. It would also be more expensive.

    Nice videos BBB. Looking foward for the actual LP video.

    I can see Embrace Darkness working well with Necromancer despite the redundancy with its empire upgrade because it will give Life Steal to all non-Cavalry/Infantry/Pikemen Undead in it’s rooster (I imagine it will give a nice sustain to the Bone Collector on top of the corpse consuption). Actually, I do think it will work well with sturdy/brute races like Dwarves and Orcs. (and in the case of the Orcs it reminds me of the Doom Bat Totem from Shadow Magic)

    I agree that would be cool. Evolved or very small chance to summon instead of the regular ones.

    But I don’t think it’s necessary…none of the angels are scary enough (IMO) to make me feel like the elementals need something.

    I do wish summon blight/spirit elementals were on the destruction/creation mastery spell lists, respectively. Oh well.

    Gold medal earth elementals are pretty much t4. Making a greater version of him doesn’t make sense imo.

    The game is designed specifically so that gold medal units are equivalent to the next tier up. You can say that about pretty much any unit.

    Hey BBB!
    Could you please tell me a little about the Frost Tank?
    Do you build them in Frostling cities? Can you build both Flame and Frost tanks if you have a Frostling and city of any other race?
    Or maybe only Frostling Dreadnaughts build them in any city?
    I’m also interested in its stats.
    A video of them in action would be optimal but that’s a little too much to ask I feel.

    As promised, a look at the stats of the new T4 units.

    Minute 10:30, Elder Eldritch?<br>
    With a cost of 500 gold that thing sure is strong.

    Yea, i noticed this aswel, it caught my attention. Bigger and meaner version of the eldritch horror or does it look like something else?

    Elder Edritch?

    No-one knows…

    Hmmm, a good find. I missed it my first viewing – you guys have eagle eyes.

    Perhaps it’s a secret spell – or perhaps casting classes are buffed with stronger summons to counteract specialization T4s?

    #178025

    You’ll just have to wait and see. That one won’t be in the LP.

    Edit: Frost Tank? Isn’t it obvious in the name? 😛

    They are fun.

    What? Draconian Death Bringer??

    Are we getting racial variants for Dreadnought machines?

    I have no doubt that Frost Tank is like a Flame Tank, except it sprays frost instead of fire, although I’ll be curious to if it has fire weakness and some bonus to make up for it.

    I think just for Frostlings.

    It’s a bit of a nod to Shadow Magic. Some races had the Flame Cannon as one of their machines, and it was quite similar to the Flame Tank. Frostlings were the only race that had the Frost Cannon, which was the same thing except for the the obvious fact that it spew ice instead of flame.

    Tigrans like two terrain types but only dislike one and hate one? WTF?

    #180176

    Member

    I know I complain about Tigrans seeming OP a lot…the thing is as a player I hate using the most powerful thing. I’ve never made an elf druid hero or a dwarf theocrat/dreadnought. I really want to like the Tigrans but I won’t allow myself to use them if they aren’t balanced.

    #180239

    Turn 21-26.

    @ Ilfoso, I don’t know how much of that is the aura of the new in effect.

    They shine in tactical combat, because of intra racial synergy, but they are not that great in auto combat.

    Prowlers especially crumple in auto.

    #180242

    Also, Fen is doing a writeup of their class synergy, which should illuminate them a bit more.

    You have to bear in mind that for this LP, I picked a relatively safe choice, and I am picking my fights carefully.

    When we engage the Dwarves, you should see that they are much harder to budge.

    #180274

    Figured out how to make a playlist.

    #180296

    The thing I’ve noticed about Tigran is that none of the racial units seem to have high defenses nor high HP.
    They are glass cannony, which makes them quite powerful in the right situations if guided by the capable players but can quickly be shredded in unfavorable circumstances.

    #180300

    @ Ferrus, totally.

    I’m actually worried about fighting a Dwarf Dreadnought.

    Nice LP, BBB!

    One little nitpcik; You sometimes point to a certain point of the map saying that you want to build something there. Problem is, your recording software doesn’t show your cursor 😉

    Keep it up!

    Kind regards,

    Low

    #180393

    Oh? Doesn’t it?

    Bizarre.

    Must be an option somewhere.

    and found it.
