Nice game Refineus, very nice Sorcerer play... 

I played Halfling necro here... I'm trying to improve with necro and I think I'm liking it as much as AD... Anyway, I had a very decent start, I was able to expand and build  decent economy pretty early in the game, my research was terrible, I didn't have too many structures nearby to farm it, but it was good enough to get me reanimators quickly and banshees.... I was able to do some harassment with my banshees and lost souls, took one of his cities and scorched earthed it... that was mean, sorry =(.

There was a giant dwelling in the middle which Refineus was able to secure... but around mid game I took it from him, and then started to get some movement towards his territory, with an AD hero and a not too powerful stack. My main stack was still trying to take some structures, and I stupidly lost my leader in a ziggurat.

When I took Refineus dwelling, he had better army than me... I had more numbers, but not as many T3 as him, eventually, he killed my AD and got his dwelling back, but I had scorched earthed it again... evil... haha... Then he moved with his 3 stacks to try to take his dwelling back, which I think was a mistake, because he started to weaken the ogres with his magic, and that gave me time to resurrect my AD, and move my army to the middle of the map, where after he took the dwelling, I attacked him, killing everyone except for his leader and a node serpent, which I couldn't because they were on the mountains and I didn't have enough MP, and he killed my leader and hero.

That was a problem in the end game, because he now had his leader with 85 CP, Eldritch Horror researched and free to roam in my territory with my leader in the void... with the survivors from that battle and my AD I moved to his territory and started to take his cities, he in the meantime moved to mine with his leader and the node serpent, and as expected, he summoned a horror in the next turn... I thought he was moving directly to my throne, but apparently he didn't see it and started to take some other random cities instead, that gave me time to gather my troops and summon a dead reaper... While my AD took his throne along with his cities...

Eventually, he realized where my throne was, and moved there, but it was too late, I already had 3 stacks with my leader and was able to kill him without many losses and that gave me the victory...

Even though I had more score, I think it was just because I had quantity, and probably slightly better economy, but Refineus had more research as a sorcerer and was able to secure more powerful units than me earlier in the game... so Wp!

I sort of was on the triumph of victory. I made one key mistake that made me lost the game. I beat Dr light leader at one point when he was fighting over a dwelling and let my leader live. But I was not able to find his throne I thought it was on the right path. But his throne was actually south and I was 1 turn away to beat it. However, moving north made me lose the moment. It made Dr light an opportunity to return from the void and crash my throne city. He could build his army back and return really to the game and grab the whole three stacks.

It could have been a lucky game for me and an easy victory. But no, I actually lost due to not scouting properly earlier. Or I was too eager to find the Dr Light throne stressing through Dr Lights base with 1 serpent node, leader and an Eldridge horror.

The game was quite fair. Sorcerer is really not my class, but I had a good throne area

I will be in quarantine this week as I did an international trip, I don't have access to my personal PC and somehow I can't connect to the server through my work laptop, I guess the company firewall is preventing me from doing so. If I find a way to log in and take my turn I will, otherwise, I will take my turn probably next week after I get tested and go back home.
