Warmongers are a nightmare halfway through the game. They keep getting more and more rage and you are afraid to attack them. In the end they'll most likely be the last orc standing and the remainder of your army may be unable to put them down.

===== Cup of Misfortune =====

Played my matches against NecroMutant

Ramses vs NecroMutant: 2-0


Game 1 : First thing i noticed when the match started was that "small" mana pool of the enemy hero. Combined with the high cost of those empowered spells i based my strategy on surviving those 4 deadly spells and then counterattack with a mighty phoenix. My first berserk spell was kind of a failure () but despite that the game went pretty smooth.

Game 2 : that match was pretty straightforward and was over quite fast. The morale/luck combo did his trick once again "ntou kai ksilo ston wizard ton vrwmilo"

Semi-Final

Deathy vs Albolabris  1-2


first matchup of Semi-Finals is finally over and well, not much to say, i lost to better player and to my own mistakes this time

game 1

Me as Inferno vs Albo as Stronghold

http://www.speedyshare.com/files/27635291/DeathyvsAlboSemi-final.sav

not much to say about this one, i was dumb not to charge defendless stronghold right away, and paid the price by losing alot of units fast.
also albo had couple of nice lucky strikes + lucky resistance also not getting berserk at all was quite hinder to me.

game 2

Me as Sylvan vs Albo as Inferno

http://www.speedyshare.com/files/27635488/DeathyvsAlboSemifinalgame2.sav


in this game, i took massive gamble when building my hero. i was offered Dark Magic right at lvl 2 but i didn't know what dark spells i was capable of getting. i took the dark magic anyway, but it bited me in the ass in the end. i got no berserk,no puppet and i wasn't offered master of curses during level ups despite mentoring and i had both suffering and curse. so when i went into the battle, i was sure i would lose the battle. Albo had nice tactic of fast forgetfulness and general mass debuffs. But then happened what some HC people would
probably call Elvin luck. i had the second most luckiest hit with my
dragons ever against Albo's perfect cover for his succubus and grunts
and that strike definetly won the game for me there and then, despite
us playing it through to the end. also having vampirism on many of my units was nice.

game 3

Me as Stronghold vs Albo as Dungeon

http://www.speedyshare.com/files/27635700/DeathyvsAlbosemi-finalgame3.sav

Albo went for Summoning Might Dungeon against my Might Stronghold with Shatter Destruction. I kinda knew going shatter destruction would be mistake but wanted to take the safe road anyway since if he would go destruction and i wouldn't have shatter, he would own me.
My initial unit placement was crap, since i knew he would place furies and dragons in somewhere where he thought i would place my centaurs. thanks to my stupid predictability, i lost centaurs and cyclops very fast and the game looked really bad for me. then Albo got bad luck with bad morale with his dragons and things started to look nice for me for awhile. My Maulers were insane killers and daughters,maulers and goblins would have had nice chance to finish the game being the huge killer stacks they were. however, Albo's summoned hives which prevented my maulers from acting, couple of lucky strikes from his hydras and shadow mistresses and his furies keeping my goblins out of the game all the time, i eventually lost nevertheless. was funny to see though that goblins would have been capable of two shotting the phoenix


thanks to Albo for the games, thanks to everyone ive played and thanks to Elvin for the tournament. not many HC community members can say they got to semi-finals in their first HC tournament i haven't even played 100 duels yet overall hehe. the tournament should be over for me now, unless the semi-finals were 5 games or i still have to play for third place? how is it Elvin?

I confirm the score. First of all congrats Deathy for achieving semi-final and many thanks for games Good luck in the battle for third place


About the games.

1. When i saw i have to play orcs against inferno i knew it's close to impossible so i decided to gamble having 10% rez boots. I went for retribution with tactics and defense. Then we lost connection. Strange thing really because mentor gave me other skills. Why? Because i didn't do the exactly same move. Mentor is stupid So i asked Deathy to load. Visited other town, +1 spel and knowledge buildings and then he gave me the same. But i didn't manage to make the same build Ended up with no defense. Instead i had Shatter with the 25% delay ability. So all in all it was still a big gamble.

When i saw no tactics on his side i was surprised as hell. Then he made mistakes using gating instead of charging. My units used that. Scared seducers run a bit in to the center and things started to look pretty good. Then my 25% resistance worked on maulers and i could say home sweat home.



2. Well what can i say. snowing Dragons Went for swift mind and had 5 mass spells  but i didn't know that confusion was nerfed (punch for Elvin ). We played until the end and i did what i could but it was over after that stupid prismatic breath. Maybe with mark of the damned it would look a bit better but mentor was an snow again Also Sylvan with Dark Magic is a bit imba, especially when 110 mana is enough to cast vampirism several times even with two stacks of familiars stealing.


3. Destruction was out of the question on this map in this matchup. Thank god i got defense and i could go might with enlight and summoning. We had pretty much same heroes, both 2/3  morale/luck before he boosted it with ralling cry. Deathy sum it up nicely already so nothing to ad from me. Hive saved the day

Finished semi-final games with Pera, 2-1 in my favor.

First game was my Necro vs his Stronghold. I had master of endurance/haste and dark. I got beat down. Very lethal offense from him:
http://www.mediafire.com/?1lfhco2nkmlp5ss

Second game was my Haven vs his Fortress. I had neither haste nor righteous might, so I went for master of abjuration + fire resistance + suppress light, which worked really well all things considered. He spent a lot of money on the mentor so his army was lacking anyway:
http://www.mediafire.com/?ctxfn120o8wk27n

Third game was my Sylvan vs his Necro, which was the most intense game. Although it looks like I had a commanding victory we both agree that the game could have been a lot more complicated if his phoenix didn't get bad morale; he wasn't able to take down my druids because of it and my army just rampaged over him:

Confirming quarter and semifinal game results. Thanks for games guys, and best of luck to Bliz in finals. About games:

Azzie:

Game 1: Bad luck for him with this particular setup. It's really hard for dwarf when facing properly build inferno. Especially without wol and armageddon. At least with it, inferno would have to take some magic protection / resistance, but now can totally focus on might build and with motn, easily dispose of dwarf lvl6 and lvl7.

Game2: Azzie lost his dragons to soon, to early, and without them he actually put up fine resistance, but with no real chance. I think they score the least kills, hp wise, in that game.

Blizz:

Game 1: 19 attack coupled with ability to engage his troops in a first turn, plus having both fear and word, left no chance for undead.

Game 2: Should have been an equal match, if I didn't become greedy when offered logistic while leveling. So, eventually, at cost of lot of money and one whole stack of lvl4, I did got swift mind. And the funniest thing was I really did not need it at all. My planned build with surpass light, luck and tap runes, would be much better.

Game 3: Bad setup for me, followed with even worse luck. Or morale Damn the tunic of carved flash. I even considered not equipping it. Still getting 2 bad morales in first 4 actions is to much, and the worst part was that it was the only moment in game when I could actually dispose of his druids. Also made a mistake of not casting first decoy on druids, but arcanes were dealing to much damage, and got distracted by  it. My low mana, didn't help at all. Bad choice on whom to put mark on, from my side, most of the game. Screwed up with mentoring, and couldn't buy all troops, and I needed hp badly in this match up. So to sum it all, my bad choices and luck, prevented me exploiting rather, statistically weak ranger he build.

In the end, I would like to thank you all for games, and Elvin for organizing this tourney. And I hope too see all of you in similar tournament when Heroes VI comes out.

I just realised that no matter what I do there is no way I will have time to play any "Cup of Misfortune"-duels at all. Life was simple - just write the essay and then be free - but suddenly dozens of meaningless things showed up from nowhere and I just have to do them because of some unclear and vague but nevertheless important and binding reasons. How I ended up in a situation like this is a great mystery, I only postponed a few minor things when I was writing so there shouldn't be any problems.
Good luck everyone!

I just finished my matches with Nocturnal.

First match was his Haven against my Academy. Storm Wind was effective at stopping his Griffins and Archangels, but his Champions ran all over me as I had no defense. Nocturnal Won in convincing fashion

Second match was really close. His Necropolis against my Stronghold. I had a powerful triple flaming ballista, but unfortunately no shatter dark. Which absolutely killed me, as Nocturnal essentially controlled my army. Very close match though.

REPLAYS

Good Games Nocturnal, the second one was pretty epic/fun
