Default Dominions Livestream! 6PM EST Saturday

http://z7.invisionfree.com/Dom3mods/...ost&p=22028928

Streaming dominions!? Madness!? Folly?! No, it's just pure AWESOME.

TheDemon is going to play a friendly practice duel Saturday at 6PM, streaming it through twitch. He's a long time vet and well respected for his solid planning and clean execution. He's also a surprisingly good caster and talks through his moves, reasoning and is willing to take questions from the stream's chat.

Ever wondered how someone else plays dominions or wanted to just pick up some basic tips from a veteran player? This is a great opportunity to do so, and an awesome service to the dominions community. Come check out the stream tomorrow,

October 6th at 6PM EST (GMT-6)!

For some reason frosted and blanketthief are way more excited about this than I am. Really don't get that.

There was some timezone confusion on the part of both our duelers. We will be starting extremely shortly.

e: Stream now up. will post again when it's over.

Thanks for doing this! While this is duel focused, a video like this seems like it would be a great introduction for new players (like a more visual version of Bruce Geryk's guide that I found useful as a Dom2 intro).

Btw, whether you think Daughters of Avalon are worth a cap recruitment slot depends on the value you place on their healing ability. I think it's a very important perk. It does force you to make a tough choice, forgoing a crone, but having to make those kinds of choices are what makes the game interesting. Of course the vast majority of your cap slots will go to crones so you'll only have enough daughters for one, or maybe two, healing centers but that sounds right to me (as opposed to healers wherever you want them). Having said that, a bit of a boost to their healing ability doesn't seem out of line. Since they're so cheap I like to recruit them early in the game (and it's a few less crones subject to that first late winter).

Lol @ "don't recruit barbarian chiefs, they're useless." It's always annoying when you need to build a fort and they're the only indie commander in the vicinity because everything else requires a temple/lab to recruit.

PS - What map is that? Looks very nice.

The map you're referring to is Green Haven I do believe

Watched, listened, while I did other things between turns. It was more interesting than I expected. The duel format didn't allow for some of the late game highlights, but it would be impossible to stream something that would. Also, that map is a very perdy map.

we are using a duel version of GreenHaven:

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?k4o8t3zm60d0f0h

The starts are fixed in provinces 46 and 13, and have been adjusted to allow for coastal-start-required nations.


edit: Stream is over for now, thanks for viewing. The archived stream should be available at the same link.
