I got that he doesn't like Sombre... or that Sombre is his opponent... but he did still ask a question about what to do... so... no, I don't...

As I am not, unfortunately, possessed of telepathic abilities, the odds of understanding your "real meaning of the entire thread", which appears to be something completely different from what you actually posted in your first post (or relies on information only known to a subset of the posting population), are low to non-existent.

Cross-indexing against your other posts on this forum might give me a hint as to what you are really talking about, but that really is no fitting replacement for choosing an appropriate subject and posting the thing you want to discuss in the original post of a thread. This includes giving sufficient information in the original post that people can discuss what you really want to talk about. If this (as Graeme Dice seems to suggest) is a particular game with constraints relevant to that game, the appropriate act would to either discuss it in a thread already dedicated to that game or to indicate the relevant constraints when you post in the general discussion forum.

Failing that, you can act like a real smeg-head, though I'd never call you a smeghead. That might a banning offense (depending on the amount of Red Dwarf sympathizers amongst the moderaters).

Hmmm, this helps a bit to explain the preference for expensive powerful mages over cheap mages. It could be worthwhile to add 5gem armor to a 250 gold mage. Definitely not for an 80 gold mage.

I guess my reverse-communion EA Ermor Augur Astral Fires strategy won't work in MP -- a rain-of-stones would easily kill it.

Your best strategy is to keep attacking him with 25 yogi armies until he runs out of gems for rain-of-stones.

Peter Ebbesen, I suggest you lighten up. People have been banned from these forums for being sombre, you know.

Thank you for wasting my time on some insipid foolishness.

guys, you're making fun of people whose first language isn't english, and who'se only offense was trying to be helpful.

I understand that people are frustrated - but I don't think thats a profitable or appropriate response.

To get back on topic, your problem is that even though you're using hundred mage armies, your strategy is too diverse. Moderation will only get you a seat at life's loser table. You need to commit to your course and never stray, regardless of the consequences.

It's like the old quote .. "All things in moderation, including moderation."

There is no proper or appropriate response, the mods are taking a sombre mood to further discussion of the subject.
