Start playing you lazies



Meanwhile we concluded our games with Godulio - as compensation to the missing match from last round. Both ended in my favour.

Replays

First game was necro versus his lucky destructive fortress. Boneward and a barrage of dark spells allowed me to outlast him, funny how his chain lightning did not hurt my units as much as it did his

Second was my academy versus orcs where I tried the traditional dark/summoning build with defense. A wheel of luck caused my mages to get a sweet lucky shot against his centaurs, they never got to act. With puppeted chieftains godulio had an uphill battle, unfortunately no shatter dark for him.

Looks like Elvin will have his chance for revenge. Came out 2-0 in my favor.

1st game was my Stronghold vs his Academy. I did the one-trick-pony build, charged, and killed everything. He got antsy and didn't use MotW, but I'm not sure what difference it could have made. Overall a pretty boring game:

2nd game was my Inferno vs his Necro. He performed about as well as could be expected (except for near the end when he used the puppeted grunts to jump on my pit lords that he forgot had vampirism on them ), but I had all the workings for a solid anti-necro build. Weakness, Suffering, Vulnerability, and Vampirism; siphon mana to kill his mana, and pit lords for anti-phoenix and lots of spells. He could have stood a good chance of winning with destructive, but I don't blame him for going dark:

I confirm..
First game was a nightmare, wasn't offerd neither attack nor defence by sphinx.. which is crucial against barbarians.. so it was VERY one-sided game.

Second game a bit better, but my opponent was just perfectly prepared for this battle. Master of curses, master of pain and first of all.. vampirism combined with endless mana neutralized my casts. Maybe if I decided for another type of ghost it would be more effective, since his pits wouldn't get so much mana.

I feel insufficiency after this game, but blizzard played simply too good for me. Thanks.

I also had enlightenment with my Stronghold . That game was a doomsday scenario without dark.

As far as dark is concerned.. I was offered only Blind and Vampirism.
Couldn't give me ANY benefit so I resigned of it.

@Michi
Well not getting Defense and Attack with Academy is no surprise it's a 2% to pop up so it's usually very rare to get it at all. I haven't seen the replay but if the terrain was semi-obstacle free it's a veeeeery hard fight for Academy especially if you couldn't go dark.

And the second one sounds really cool. Reminds me of my game vs. Blizzard where I had him but he casted vampirism on his über pala stack and I forgot it and still thought they were affected by confusion and with one leap I restored his palas from 12 to 25 xD.

Oh yes...that was gold. Grunts can dish out amazing damage for a tier 2 and I love them to death, but damn, it sucks for them to be around when a unit has vampirism

Well, once again I am out.

Azagal and I just played 2 games - no, check that, Azagal played 2 games. I completely failed to apply myself and pull off any meaningful counter to his Shadya (he had her in both games). Luck, item-wise, was on his side as well.

First up was his emerald-slippered 21 SP Empowered Implosion. I had Dark, apparently a very stupid choice against Dungeon, but Light didn't appear to promise much. In hindsight it would have been useless anyway, no amount of mass light spells, resurrections, teleporting and anti-magic shells would have altered the reality that each time Shadya cast, I had a stack less than before (more or less). In the second one, he went Might and Phoenix, but I did very stupid things with my build and wound up with no magic schools (excluding my Exp Runelore) - and Tap Runes. Shame, really; I really had a good chance in the second game (as Fortress always seems to have) and still managed to clean up about 5 of his stacks (well, 4 exterminated, 1 whittled down to a fourth, the last 2 only scratched) despite his Powers of Speed and of Endurance.

I didn't think to save the replays though, as I practically insulted Azagal with my zero thought playing - sorry man, and hope I'll do better next time.

Academy was kinda exposed. Djinns in the front allowed for easy rage(not just the cyclopes) and gremlins were not in a protected position either. Then golems left the way to mages open.. And just blind..? With motw that's 2 blinded targets in half a hero action, love it.

As for the second.. you clever devil! Masterfully played bliz.

Btw if instead of endurance Michi cast puppet on lords and attacked vermin it could have looked a lot different. Or why not cast frenzy on devils that were acting before hero.

Me and my opponit should be squaring off wednesday.  If our boomerang match up is any indication on how this will go, I am going to get steamrolled .  If luck were cash, I'd owe a couple billion dollars .  Looking forward to it, however.

Last time I did that some of the people who joined early did not even appear. So better to keep an eye and decide for yourself when we begin.

Firstly dear Elvin, imho 2 blinded targets, even 4 blinded targets wouldn't help me much.

Secondly..
Casting frenzy on devils? That's a great idea. Now, when we know that Bliz possessed vampirism. My mistake was that I didn't anticipate that, and casted it on horses, because I considered them more dangerous at the beginning.
Puppet on lords? Probably I should have taken a chance here and do that. Maybe I could move them once. But not more, Bliz casts vampirism on them - my another spell would be neutralized. So I wanted to cast something let's say.. beneficial

Anyway, thanks for comments and nice unlockable! Well deserved.

Only problem with blind is he may have order of the chief, otherwise it buys you some time during which his rage goes down. I like how it helps control the flow of the game.

Btw I may have one more task for you You may have noticed that my branch has three players and I was considering to fight Bliz. Would you like to face the third opponent? Could be Rubycus or Odium. If you win he's out, if you lose he'll fight me or Bliz.
