I don't think they initially could but unless I'm mistaken the barbarian used battlecry. Except the attack bonus it gives +1 speed.


Aura of swiftness bonus, 7+1=8 Same of Paladins, who can charge at the first turn.

Wow Fiur had Enlightenment with Orcs... too bad he didn't get Stamina which is a very powerful skill (well, for Duels at least), since it gives you +2 Defense and +10% hit points.

As I said, I wouldn't last beyond second round. Radar won 2 - 0. On our first game, the obstacles were a pain and I couldn't frenzy any of his units. On second, I commited several mistakes, like casting Meteor Shower with Crystal Dragons around (I forgot this upgrade hasn't any Earth immunity), or waiting to cast it (maybe I should have let my Dragons under Frenzy one Turn). And the fact thatI had no Cleansing seal the fate of the match. Congratulations to the lucky winner!

Radar is on a roll! Will have to check this out, interesting matchups.

Meanwhile I had my own battles with felunio and emerged victorious. Apparently he remains as sharp as ever but thankfully I managed to improve since the time he gave me advice Alright I was a bit lucky on top of that

We decided that on first game I pick first and second he would.
First was a light sylvan vs a destructive dungeon, his empowered fireball started blasting my army methodically but thankfully he did not kill my druids asap and I could resurrect a few times. I barely made it out of there, perhaps I should consider getting fire resistance next time.

Next was a light haven vs a dark necropolis, an even tougher match. He had tactics, power of speed and endurance that made his army hard to bring down. Until the very end it was impossible to tell who was winning but I had the right spells and managed to outcast him. On that note hasted griffins are a killing machine, you never know who the lucky target is Thank goodness for my lucky hits and stormwind.

Anyway respect to felunio, amazing games

Replays.

I begin to wonder whether we should consider archiving some of these replays.  They've certainly helped me improve at the game a lot, even though I don't play multi at all.

I tend to keep most of the interesting ones, both from tournament and friendly. Thing is I don't know of a permanent hosting site that does not annoy me and the replays are too many If you have any suggestions I'm all ears.

Awesome replays, just one comment: I think Dungeon (in that Dungeon vs Sylvan game) ignored too much the Arcanes and Druids...

Let's wait and see what happens, if your opponents won't make it then you pass to next round and face each other for the points. Where the next round is concerned you may have noticed that there are three players in the lowest branch. My plan is to have an eliminated contestant fight the third player - if he wins he plays with the other winner for the next round, if he loses the other winner simply proceeds to next round.

Final_Boss can I count on you?

Now on Lepastur's matches. In the first one the orcs could simply not be contained.. Looks like a game won by sheer stats superiority, especially after the battlecry they butchered the demon troops effortlessly. Taunt also helped.

The sylvan match felt kinda disorganized. Like it failed to deliver good damage on first time and then had to fall back on light magic. Necro could simply take the blow and advance forward, it might be better if sylvan had an extra might skill and skipped one of the magic schools.



Forgot to post the screenshots.

Meanwhile we resumed Zamfir's missing games, here is the first one. My light/luck/summoning academy played vs his luck/destructive dungeon, as you can guess I made magic protection minies and attack for most of my units. Good part was that I got cloak of sylanna and dragon eye ring, unfortunately the mentor never gave me the right mass spells There goes my 15k gold.

About the battle itself I started with mark, arcane armour and resurrection in succession that mostly neutralized his destructive. He then turned to deep freeze but my magic mirror kept redirecting it to the wrong targets and eventually he run out of mana.

Unfortunately zamfir had to leave afterwards so I owe him at least one more game. Since kaido or destro did not appear until now arcax and phoenix pass to the next round and may challenge each other for the points.

Rule number one: never use single-target spells against Academy except in dire circumstances when you know otherwise you'll lose anyway.

And Academy's luck also helped out pretty much in that game, triggering a lot and in crucial moments.
