"Started converting units with my leader on turn 10 and managed to convert several good units.
Researched evangelists on turn 11 and produced one on turn 12. It helped me to open second front with my second hero."

Yeah so that confirms what I think: Evangelists are not necessary to do MC strategies, Leader is enough.

"I was always short on gold" Good so soon, we should get closer to balance.


What about trying to play with Treasures OFF, as suggested on the forum for future games? That way, no gold stash and no mana stash to pay for upkeep etc.

Nothing special early game, cleaning resp and leveling.
Started converting units with my leader on turn 10 and managed to convert several good units.
Researched evangelists on turn 11 and produced one on turn 12. It helped me to open second front with my second hero.

I was always short on gold and my part of the map was poor, so didn't build much units. Most of my army consisted of converted units and units I got from rewards.

At turn 13-15 I cleaned everything near my starting location including high level sites and started thinking about moving into opponent's part of the map, because there were no good places to explore.

With my cherubs I have captured opponent's cities 3 times for one turn including throne, but it was not really efficient without scorched earth. I could probably raze one city if I leave two cherubs to defend it, but I made a mistake and it was recaptured by banshee.

I didn't see opponent's main army until the end, but I guessed that he will focus on building sun guards.

With my main stack I pushed forward in UG toward to his cities and took dungeon on the way. Was able to convert warbreed and with reward I got two stacks of good units (one stack of converted units).

We met not so far from his city in tiny pass between undiggable walls. He had 3.5 stacks with all heroes and leader, sun guards and banshees and some units bought from the inn. I had better army composition, but only two stacks.
We stayed couple of turns and no one of us could attack each other.



I was thinking about to pin his entire army near city while my second hero clearing map and also started preparing another stack with evangelist/crusaders to move to his cities from another way.
Mahimka wanted to turn the game aro und and made risky move to attack his own dungeon trying to convert warbreeds, but lost his stack with heroes and surrendered.

As Mahimka said after the game, he had two ghoul strikes and was not able to convert a single unit.
