I'll have to put the match on hold for now. Likeliest time when I can resume is next Friday. Right now I have to dedicate myself to university projects and can't afford to be thinking of anything else. I'm sorry if this inconveniences you, but it can't be helped.
On the positive side, my health got better and my motivation returned to me, so best use the time to prepare

Today, Green Dragon and me had our matches. The strike out lead to Academy vs Dungeon and Haven vs Stronghold. I went for Dark Magic in both cases (Frenzy in particular) which proved to be still far too lethal for Stronghold (to make matters worse, my hero had Expert Sorcery and Empathy) while the match between Academy and Dungeon was rather close with him going for Summoning and Destructive Magic. Consume Artifact helped me a lot there in the end.

Yeah the second game was a slaughter. Some kind of war cry to gain control back would help a lot. Or make cyclops immune to mind control.


And just for learning sake, what should I use against war machines. Was relying on cold death in the past but with that gone I'm hesitant to use my creatures on them because it takes so many attacks just to kill it. I'm probably over looking something but war machines just seem really strong. More useful to go for ballista than getting attack and defense skills.

Me and Deigis played our first match, but didn't have time for anymore tonight. It was a Dungeon vs Sylvan matchup, dark vs light, a game that lasts through the ages... literally. Light magic is slow yo!

Frenzy and puppet master were strong, but in the end child of light, ancient treants, regeneration and resurrection won the day. When the darkness retreated the Treants were left, and they just would not die.

Game loss for Gameslayer

Frenzy's greatest counter is exp defense Orcs have fear vs puppet but no direct counters for frenzy so the best they can do is pump their defense and play around with unit atb, to get fragile units out of the way or move fodder closer. That's where divine guidance and order of the chief come in. Now if the orcs manage to get enough units standing, the double rage from frenzy will make them pretty hard to take down.

But in that game, I feel that part of the problem was lack of exp defense and executioners instead of chiefs. These guys do insane amounts of damage but they have to get their rage up to survive and keep killing. Haven not only has good might stats but a boosted retaliation so they died like flies. Shamans tend to also be the backbone of the army(I usually prefer them in melee) but after the first chain they didn't sacrifice to keep casting.

Wm are pretty good but even without cold death the ballista won't last long if you focus your fire on it. Destroying the ammo cart helps a bit as it removes 3 attack from the ballista. But I'll have to rewatch my recent replays to look at wm more closely, perhaps I should have lowered their att/def a bit. Their dmg seems more or less fine.

Haha poison + decay killed the dragons before regeneration

Poison Master achievement unlocked!



I was thinking that frenzying the dragons might have been better in that it would have prevented an early prismatic but the unicorns proved an excellent target ^^ I expected you'd focus on the treants earlier though. It would have also helped to cover dragon/unicorn corpses to prevent rez and use hydras as a matriarch cover over dealing damage. Enjoyable game

@Green Dragon: In my opinion, the match up vs a well-prepared Haven with Frenzy is generally very hard for Stronghold on this map. You had 14 Defense, which is already quite a lot for Stronghold, and I don't think you could have changed the outcome a lot, regardless of the approach. That doesn't mean that Stronghold can't win against Haven on this map - the fact that I had all the crucial skills and spells was decisive.

@Gameslayer/Diegis: Wow, if someone had told me about that match up, I would have bet the house on Dark Magic Dungeon. Btw. Gameslayer, I checked out our replay and that was some tremendously bad luck on your part with regard to your spells. Combined with all those Stronghold-Necro match ups which you had, the game indeed seems to hate you You did really well considering those circumstances.

Game 2 between me and Deigis was played. Fortress vs Necro, an hour and a half of both sides punching a wall with their bare fists. I went for warmachines for a triple ballista first aid tent against the necromancer, he went for warmachines for a plague tent against the dwarven player. We both only managed to get the first-aid tent. I went light magic because I had nothing else. I ended up with almost no secondary skills because it constantly kept offering me mass deflect missile and runic warmachines when I never had the spell or wanted runic war machines because it would have prevented my triple ballista. Resurrection runes, double runes, refresh rune, the resurrection spell, vs a necromancer who had a 400 healing tent, who managed to revive 28 wraiths with it. Both sides felt like they had the advantage in the late-game, but the necromancer was the true winner, the fortress player couldn't do enough damage against despite having expert luck and offence. Honestly, I'm just glad that game is over, because that lasted waaaay too long
