    Darn looks like I missed the live show, looking forward to the tape. Thanks for doing this NINJEW!

    Wow, 22 turns? No wonder I hate pick-up MP games.

    I would not call that game ordinary by any means. I was totally outclassed, on a map that heavily favored my opponent’s race/class pick, against an opponent who is apparently noteable for having a very strong early game, who tried to talk me into map settings that favor summon rushes.

    I’d say most games I play are more in the 40-70 turn range.

    Ah, ok; thanks for the clarification. So what was the map setting?

    Wow, 22 turns? No wonder I hate pick-up MP games.

    Mine ended up being a grueling 108 turns… Technically it could have gone on even long than that, but Prodigal opted to end things early(so to speak), after losing his last main forces(9 Exalted, 2 Shrines and 1 Lord of the Deep) in a final desperate attack against my only surviving city, hoping to remove the last of my limping economy. Thankfully, I was reasonably defended. Two stacks of Elf Hunters, and a stack of Storm Sisters, with a level 8(9?) Archdruid hero, a Swordsman and a Phoenix mixed into the stacks.

    My flavorful, more or less, report is here.

    To be fair, though, as I vaguely acknowledge in my report itself, I may have been able to end it some time in the 50~60 turn time range(I believe the major battle occurred some time in the mid-40’s), but I really wasn’t sure about what kind of forces Prodigal may have had defending.

    Ah, ok; thanks for the clarification. So what was the map setting?

    The map settings we used were the default for the tournament: medium size, underground enabled (though neither of us went underground once), random map type (it ended up being either continents or islands, I don’t have enough experience with either to say which I think it is confidently), with everything set to average except for city frequency and dwelling frequency, which were both set to few

    I normally play with an average number of cities and dwellings, which does make the games go on longer. This game was still over extraordinarily quickly though.

    And, of course, keep in mind that “extraordinarily quickly” still means “almost an hour and a half,” so.

    Hitbox. So i follow your link, there is a play button, but it doesn’t work. This is on an ipad.

    I need to register or something? Dl some stuff? I prefer youtube 🙂

    Hour and a half for 22 turns.

    Obviously means i need to divorce and never see my kid again to seriously consider particiating in a aow3 tournament 😉

    Yeah… even if I had more troop value even after the larger fight, all my units were ineffective. Racials, class units, all the same. I fought wars of attrition, but rewards for clearing provided the upkeep needed for your Gods, I think.

    *Very* tough to fight against the new Gods, I must say. I’d choose incorporeal or banish summon to deal with them – most other units face Entangling Strike at 12 strength. This is very strong in its current form. Probably should have gone for Destruction Mastery for this match since it was so hard to kill your AD leader with Regrowth/CL, guarded by Gods. Disintegrate may have done the deed against that nasty doom stack. 🙂

    On a side note, neither Prodigal nor I took an Alignment Specialization, and didn’t really feel like we missed out by doing so. 😛

    #209149

    I won against Sayl.

    For future reference:

    I need more information than that and it needs to be posted here.

    If the results don’t get posted there within 24 hrs of a match, they are voided.

    I’ll post your victory there this time, but just bear that in mind for the next match.
    It’s extremely easy to miss a post in this thread.

    Agh, so sorry mate. I’m a complete idiot. For some reason I was thinking I was three hours behind you when I’m actually three hours ahead. Is there another time that works?

    it would be great if there was a direct way to communicate with you. Steam?

    I’ve had some issues with Hitbox videos in the past shortly after uploading them. Could you try again and see if it works now? If it doesn’t work still I will look into uploading to Youtube.

    I’d say a normal game lasts between 2 and 3 hours. If the game is really dragging on, you can always save and come back to it later.

    This is the big reason that playing with more than one other person is difficult though, as multiple people are going to make the game take way longer, and it’s way harder to get 4 people to all be free at the same time again than it is to get 2 people. Forget crazy things like 8 players.

    Well, 1st round should end 1800 this Friday, and there are still some unplayed matches (11, not counting the loser’s brackets – terrible name- games that are generated after the 1st few matches.) I *might* have to extend the 1st round, on the understanding that the initial matches usually have this issue, and as things progress down to fewer players, match turn around will be faster.

    Hey! Why did Gab moved to another cell?
    I was encouraging myself to fight him by listening “Eye of the tiger” for weaks. And now when I’m ready you move him away. It’s not honest!

    Actually I’m just grambling. And I don’t think that it is foul. But I’d be happy to fight Gab at this weekends

    @n0rf, late entry necessitated a reset.

    Hey Meeky,

    As of this post it is almost 10AM where I am located(Pacific Standard Time, west coast USA).

    I am fairly open for a time to meet and play.

    Please respond with dates/time(s) that may work for you.

    Thanks,
    BigFudgyDump
