Re: Is there a niche for Longdead Archers?

Decay is very effective in combination with fear effects. I've executed some pretty nasty ambushes using LA Abysia warlocks to gateway in longdead archers & drop blood rain + a couple horrors (the...

Re: Fear mechanics

Its hard to tell the exact mechanics on this from testing due to the randomness, but anecdotally units within the fear aura have their morale "damaged" at a level corresponding to the fear aura with...

Re: Well CBM1.9 is nice, but why no buff for Fomoria??

While I don't think the HoF is relevant, personally I find Fomoria on the high end of the power scale and have done very well with them in mp. If you ignore the abysmal junk in their roster they...

Re: davanas

It's usually a sucker's bet to try and kill regenerating giants in traditional ways (ie whacking on their hit points). You're usually better off attacking their fatigue. Skellispam with grip of...

Luck is a bit odd in that like growth you get a partial benefit from enemy dominion. The chance of good vs bad events is reversed...

Re: No Diplo EA Game - No Wankers Allowed - Game Over, Baalz/Abysia Wins

Yeah, I had Strand of Arcane Power up for 20-ish turns which found (guess) 30-ish sites. Without score graphs being on it was not obvious at all what a massive gem income I had - at the point...

Re: No Diplo EA Game - No Wankers Allowed - Game Over, Baalz/Abysia Wins

Yeah, as Rotarr mentions I'm working on an AAR/Strat guide based on this game if anybody is interested. A hard drive crash this week cost me a good bit of work that'd I'd done, but I'm gonna try to...

Re: No Diplo EA Game - No Wankers Allowed 10/18 left

That's the whole point silly. Dogpiles ruin the game IMO.

Anyway, thanks for the great gae everybody. Every war was well fought and everybody pretty much stuck stuff out. What more could you ask?...

Re: The best PD ?

Suaromatia and LA TC have very solid PD with a mix of good archers and heavy cavalry. EA Aby is good, but since each point of PD gets you a single guy they really only shine one you get critical mass...

Re: does pillaging break a siege

Not sure, but my guess is that "Patrol" and "Break Siege" are special in that combat occurs despite the fortress. As there are lots of other orders which don't cause combat my guess is that only...

Re: How to kit a merman captain

If you can manage rings of water breathing (obviously a stretch for LA Ulm early game) you can conquer some types of underwater idies via summon lesser horror/retreat. :) You may need to send a...

Re: ANDalusian Sun. Anonymous LA game for (rather) experienced players (Recruiting)

FYI I'm doing something very similar, for similar reasons profiling a game I'm in which is in its final stages (been working on it for months). Didn't want you to feel like I stole your thunder once...

Re: Spies

Rocs are good to if you're using EDM and can be put to other uses after they eat the spies. The manual gives a good description of the patrol/stealth check, take a look at it.

Re: No Diplo EA Game - No Wankers Allowed 10/18 left

Not interested in even hearing a reply much less a justification, but I just want to point out that this sort of chatter at this point in the game (when most people have extensive scouting in place)...

Re: Ritual of returning and BE question.

Yes, RoR will work, the domes trigger when a spell is targeted at a province. Likewise Twiceborn will work fine. Teleport/gateways will trigger the dome though. Pretty much anything that you select...

Re: Counter to flaming arrows...

Yes, though an important point to keep in mind (for any less experienced players reading) is that archers 'lock' onto their targets the first round they act, so if you want to summon imps or swarms...

Re: Counter to flaming arrows...

Surprised nobody mentioned mass flight (or haste) as an archery counter. ;) Even if you can't manage to close to the archers immediately, tack on the already mentioned precision dropping spells and...

Re: Question about EA Tir Na N'og

Well I can't speak to general perception which does seem to lean towards what you describe, but from just looking at the numbers they don't seem to me to support that conclusion. As a rough estimate...

Re: Question about EA Tir Na N'og

Well, as I posted elsewhere I don't think the hammer nerf is quite as crippling as everyone makes out. Take, for instance my suggestion to crank out piercers because that particularly makes the...

Re: Question about EA Tir Na N'og

Caveate: I haven't played Tir yet. That said, I can offer some suggestions as to some specific questions raised. Tir, like Eriu seems likely to do very well with a heavy forging focus. Sidhe...

Re: Question on mistform

Easy enough to test - cast creeping doom at a guy with high protection, lowish defense and mistform. Results are as I suggest, a whole lot of 1 damage attacks do no damage at all.

Re: No Diplo EA Game - No Wankers Allowed 13/18 left

Re: Shinuyama – the ants go marching two by two…

Nice analysis, and certainly more rigorous than what I did. I was thinking about why my conclusion differed from yours, and I think it's a factor that I didn't think to mention in the original guide...
