Art of War Tourney - Reports and Rankings

PS! please keep this tread for games played/setup only
all other question goto
this tread...  
(so if U   would be kind and delete your post who got nothing to do with the match setup and such.....


---------------------------------------------------------------------
Another important note is: you may get some annoying synck bug thing on your game BUT that will only happend when you got your /save folder full of saves from other maps.... (scrips can cause som bugs then...)
Sollution (as I've done looong time ago is) :
at the level above your /save folder make another folder like :
/toh_save (or what ever you wanna call it)
then make seperate folder for all your opponents, when you have finish a session just move the saves from your save folder into the folder you made (for current opponent). If you do so you will not encounter any synck bugs....
(this issue is not about this map alone but all maps that contain scripts...)

---------------------------------------------------------------------

In this tread you can post results of your game played in the Art of War Tourney....



PS !!!! if you wanna have a look at details just click here.



[and PS! please try to play your games according to the your color in the table... and if you got some nice replays please post them aswell..

so when you report write what faction/hero/color you played (aswell as your opponent...)

in the other tread I wrote that the tourney would start in mid. August... BUT if U like you can go ahead and start now in this tourney there will be no deadlines...

Rule reminder...    :

here it goes:
Map: Art of War (hero special edition)
Rule: well no tavern in town... (so 1 hero only), and no use of DV in final battle....optional rule no mirror game (both use same faction)

Quick combat: on
Autosave: on
Simultaneous Turns: on
Time Limit: No limit
Difficulty: Hard
Animation Speed: 5
Dynamic battle: off

So when we Play we got 2 options: (only)
1: all random
2: select/strike
(the only thing that is optional for this tourney are:
Report or not, since this is an very special way of playing you are free to do whatever you like as long as you both agree before you start the game)
there will also be a new score system (not like the other tourneys so far), 2 points for all random 1 point for select/strike system

The tourney will start sometimes in mid. August.....





Did the start time get mega pushed up?  I leave for Vacation Aug 2nd - 10th ... Didnt think it mattered since Tourny wasnt starting until mid August.  Just a heads up to my opponents.

Fred vs Zilo started:

I chose Gotai, Zilo went all random and got Markal.
To be sure, this is how it works right?

I chose Gotai,
Zilo goes random.
I win, 1 point for me, 0 for Zilo
Zilo win, 2 points for him, 0 point for  me.

Correct understood? We both understand it that way, and since i consider this game the hardest i will try to do what i can to increase my chances of getting at least something out of the game

to Jinxer and Clay man:
yes the tourney suppose to start mid august so no worriers...  
but I cant see any problem with starting it sooner (for those who want to)

to fraudatio/Zilo: (I hope you guys also play the correct color..)

thats correct the one who choose get 1 point for victory, if you go all random you'll get 2 points for victory...

to Jinxer part 2:

And on a side note... pertaining to the new 2way monolith that has been added.... I would need all my opponents to agree to ONLY use it IN the event that ALL items on map have been cleared and taken and that a player is running around still avoiding fight with nothing else to take... which would mean he is avoiding.

I really have no desire to play and watch Necro show up week4 day 1 and catch me starting to take middle and he gets both towns to beable to bounce back and forth... Just silly.


I think you don't need to worry so much about that
(if 1 lucky guy show up early there's gonna be VERY hard to get access to that monolith...)

For inspiration two garnizon battles from our game with Fraudatio:

Markal-good garnizon
Gotai-evil garnizon

I keep learning that overconfidence can can can hurt. And Fred is doing one of his best games with orcs, guess.

The official report about game.

Vasja. Has won kontr. The version of game 1.78.
Both (by tournament rules, it is more favourable) played casual races. To me have got wood race, Tieru. The dear contender played Gotai.
The game outcome was solved by speed. Final fight occurred in territory of the contender for a moment when I have taken place two underground passes. My contender - has passed one pass after me (empty). The starting situation of final fight was in favour of the contender - its arrows and completely developed fiery gun did a course before mine (I will not understand why - at my marksmen the initiative was more on two units...). But my dragons have not allowed to arrows of the dear contender to make a shot, and my arrows have not given possibility to shoot to an enemy gun. Further all - business clear.
Thanks for game!

We have finished our game with Slayer Men. We both went full random. He was haven, I was dungeon. Early light solved all my problems, mana was sufficient, good arties around so easy week 4 break and final on week 5.

I saw that Slayer suffered a lot on guards and bad arties, some luck on his side could make a closer final.

We played first match in our group with Kispagat races he wrote in his post. For me was quite hard game bad luck on guards and also artefakts. 3 times get the same ring and others not good too. Hopely will have better luck in my other games.

Finished with Fred, gods of victory loved undeads today.

Final battle here

It turned out to be way closer then I thought, yet the outcome is pretty logical for orcs-necro game.

Yeah, even though i had a good game in general i messed up the necro counter build (What is it now?). I made a chat-error in final for you to look for, defend instead of attack, but wouldnt matter in the end anyway. With the SP and defence of the Latvian giant i was left fumbling. Next time i will not show the same mercy

Oh well, me and tourneys.

I just ended my game vs Bala Car by the foot of the spinx. Made a classic miscalculation when i didnt consider the fact that i had no First Aid perk, although Adv. WM. Could not find any guidance in the manual either for some reason, so i was in dark as to whether the tent would cleanse lvl 3 dark or not untill late in battle when i could sacrifice a crossbow to a single mummy. Found out it didnt. Since there was a DC no replay of battle, but here is the deal:

I entered battle with 66 Crossbows, 10 griffs (griff spec), 38 + 1 + 1 + 1 peasants

Ended up with 1 death knight standing. Felt i did what i could all the way, but an unlucky morale that put my griffs withing reach of 8 slowed knights sealed the deal. 9 griffs gone, else i would have made it.

Congrats to bala grabbing his first win! He was of same lvl (10) as me when i pulled my regular blowup-stunt.

Now i just need Clay man to beat Bala, Zilo to beat all and me to beat Clay man, and i am back in the fight

One thing about that sphinx.... I have decided in my last few games to ignore that sphinx until late game... for example.. when I come home late week3 or early week 4 to get rest of my troops and head out to the middle... Since I always take the Ring... I figure its silly to risk suiciding early for a +1 boost to all... and since that 1 artifacts cannot win or lose the game.... I figure even if I dont make it back to it... its much better option then risking losing week 2.

Just my 2 cents...
