Posts to the game:

River rapids basically cut the map in half and made it unpassable except for flyers. I had to watch out for the Sorcerer's flying heroes and summons. There was really only one land route (through a Giant dwelling that I bought as vassal). So little or no room for smart strategy - I basically couldn't go anywhere else with my land based army so I headed in straight after being able to obtain some strong T3 units, mainly through quests. I took a city and decided to hold and plunder it, badly needing cash to sustain my large army. The Sorcerer came in to reclaim it. The final battle involved all of our leaders / heroes (my stacks: 6/6/5 vs. his 6/6/2) was a Probable Victory when I finally attacked -- but still close I saw in replay, and a classic "shock vs. melee" battle. Both leaders ended up in the void. But my surviving force was too strong, included both heroes and a few Knights & was now too close to Bethrezen's capital and he surrendered the turn after - which was nothing but reasonable.

Ok! Who won?
The winner can report through the "Report game" link or direct link: http://www.the-battlefield.co... />(the loser can also do it but usually it's the winner)

Match completed!
This game ended. Not sure if Bethrezen will update the status (or how/what to do exactly).

I believe we can start the next round of matches.

turn 13
We're in turn 13.

Yes indeed, I gave that information away and only read the notice afterwards.
I reckoned (from the log) that the class & race was already declared to you by us both -
only remaining the advantage of knowing early what an opponent is about,
and perhaps in the choice of magic schools (especially if a race has certain weaknesses).

Ah well, I'm still learning how to use this site. Will make sure to leave it open next time :-)

Hi guys! Were you able to start?
@Pothead Pixie: I hope your opponent didn't see it but you shouldn't update your class / race on this page until the match is finished... Everyone can see it. (as I said in my previous message: "(obviously, do not update the "unknown" field with the class / race here; you will update it after the match is finished)")

Yes, it's better to put the timer after the start. I had the same bug before

Published on Thu, 01 Jan 1970 01:00:00 +0100

I will host again, no password this time if you are online
I will put time limit after.
Come.

Cannot play... after "wait for start", the session screen mentions it's my turn and at the same time it's NOT my turn (timer expired). Duh.
Left the session, but could not rejoin (game not in list anymore).
Retry?

Ok, i made this change as you request.

Yes true. I meant "appear" as in "looks like".

If you could rehost, yes please - same settings except fast combat not enforced. Thanks!
Unfortunately Fast Combat is no personal setting (like resolution), this would be better.

Don't think we need a password on the game, but if you use one please let me know what it is.

Good luck!

What do you mean by appear feral ?
As far as i know is just a skipping into and battles are just faster....
Do you want to host again ?

user

OK, let's go! Not too happy with the enforced speedy combat - all mounts appear feral and I get just as nervous :-/
Just not used to it, that's all.

Pothead confirmed his class / race to me, you're ready to go after Bethrezen posts the screenshots of the settings here! <smiletext0>
Remember that Pothead needs to be 1st player.

(obviously, do not update the "unknown" field with the class / race here; you will update it after the match is finished)
