I had very strong economics this game. With two vassal dwellings and two vassal cities underground. I had three or four Zephyr cleaning gold piles and mana stacks everywhere so I could support Marky with gold and mana with no problem at all. I even forced him to buy a Dragon Dwelling with my money as I was proximity always around 600 gold every turn.

In general, it was one of those game where my scouting was focused everywhere except one corner of the southeast map and in middle. While I had terrible movement I was sort of clearing everything and when Markys stack was attacked by Sin by the fairy dwelling. I warned him to go somewhere without support, but something was luring Marky to attack some independents nearby leaving that stack vulnerable to SIn. I was sort of going there, but then everything seemed clear. It took quite some time travel around everywhere and I was wasting movements everywhere. Then going underground to clean all those Boneyards and eldritch pits as there was 5 or 6 below me that seemed like a threat to me. Probably from there, everything starts to go wrong for us. Both I and Markys forces were quite scattered and far away from our cities.

Then I was going to pick up one gold pile with one scraper, but accidentally move the whole stack seeing that Dr light was going for the very same pile. This particular stack was clearing some sites and also moving north to join with the rest of my armies. If Dr Light had moved west instead of north as he did later he could have seen a Naga dwelling, a Gob city and a Tigran city all mine. As Dwarfs has already quite some advantage underground this particular stack was not going to put a fight at all.

But expansion was going in general quite well. Then Dr light starts to move against our cities on the surface while I still stuck in the underground. I delayed his lost would by sun bursting them and cleaning forces. I researched Advanced logistics and built roads to rendezvous with my cities on surface.

It was not enough, I was suffering heavily from morale penalties and even on favoured terrain, I had 300- and all forces were fumbling. But in general Frost vs Necro is not ideal combo either judging from the auto-battle I watch. Maybe if could lure of some units out in the water by an attack with some units from water to make units join to attack the lost soul. Probably would not work. On general not I could have used more infantry and cavalry to beef stack a little as my animals did not really due that much with ranged and support units in the background.  Judging from the last screen I still had economics to hold all forces with upkeep even if my throne and two other cities went down.

GG folks.

I didn't have a lot of impact on the game this time around.

In the beginning I lost my throne to Independants when I went to do the quest for my racial Independant. It took me several turns to get back and retake it. Afterward, as DrLight wrote, I went west to get the Sylvan dwelling but unfortunately Marky was faster. I met an army of his around there. We back and forthed there for a few turns until he got out of position, so I could easily defeat his army.

At the time the dwelling had too good defenders, plus Marky had units there, which I wasn't willing to take on in autocombat, so I moved past it. Here my contribution to the match ended. I went sightseeing while DrLight did all the dirty work.

Good job, DrLight, again! You sure earned the victory. Good game everyone else!

Once again I played Necro as part of my learning process to play it decently... 

I was underground southeast, Sin was my ally on the surface... Early in the game we found with a cartographer tent Marky's throne, he was located north of the map, for some reason we were hoping Refineus would be west. I started to expand my economy and take structures as I felt somewhat Isolated for a while. Sin on the other hand, started to move his army towards Marky's territory, as he was trying to take a vassal (fairy I think...), while doing that, he found Marky's army, which eventually was able to get and killed... After that he started to march west to find Refineus, but he only went far away where no one was...

I started to move my army underground towards north, where I found a stack from Refineus that I was able to kill, I found him by coincidence... I had a dragon vassal in the UG that was giving me some nice T2 dragons... After that, I got to the surface and found Marky's vassal, which I took, when I did, I found that Refineus was very close to Marky, and I was sitting there by myself waiting to be sandwiched by the two... I started to use all my CP in souls so I could have good vision around me and make smart moves... Then I found Marky's floating stack, about 2 turns from my stacks which I was afraid of facing, so I moved away from it to Refineus territory, which I started to take city by city and razing all of them... 

I got hasty plunder, so at the end I had over 1200g and a bunch of mana because I plundered Refineus throne =P... Anyway, when I was about to hit what I think was the last city of the frostling empire, Refineus attacked me, but I defeated his army with his leader and he lost, after that Marky surrendered. 

Good game to all!

Hi All,

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.

Before you start the game, DrLight, remember to change the player turn order. Teammates shouldn't be coming after each other. (I wanted to just write you a message but the website doesn't let me use the chat.)

DrLight and me would like to play in a team for once, so we are looking for challengers against us.
