is it though? I believe the cost right now makes it very difficult to 1 turn them in early game, if we make it even harder to get them, they will have no use at all, by the time we can mass produce hunters we will have better units at our disposal...

I used elf hunters and I tryied to use them asap. I started by 2 turning them, so 5 gold more wouldn`t have a lot of impact since I had gold due to structures clearing and main problem was production time. Then I built some production and happiness buildings to start one turning elf hunters. I don`t remember how much production I had so here 5 gold increased cost could have huge impact. I think it`s ok to increase their cost by 5 gold.

Very well played Blad!, You basically killed us in 2vs1... 

I can't really say I had a bad start here, it was actually pretty decent, the problem I had is that for some reason all my first summons were spiders so I could never level up a snake and only really got to a single spider queen. Refineus was ug and I was on the surface, but there wasn't a cave entrance very close to us, so his domain was ridiculously far, it was just impossible to get support from each other when Blad decided to attack us. I did Halfling AD. From very early in the game I could see Blad scouting us, that gave me a bad felling from the get go, I thought he had too many resources to keep sending scouts to their deaths, also, he was able to spot my domain very early in the game and my scouting wasn't so great, so I could never find him nor Rippjack. In reality, I think that was basically what made us lose the game, the fact that we didn't know where he was, I couldn't really create momentum on my main stack to move in certain direction and take structures. I didn't want to go too far because I knew he was nearby, so I lost a lot of pontential exp because I just sit there waiting for Blad.

Very well done!, thanks Refineus for the screenshots!

Did you use High Elf Hunters a lot? What do you think about increasing their cost by 5 gold?

I had my best game by far. The main points of my victory was fact that I got nourishing meal item and summoned two snakes early in game. I was able to constantly clear structures with basically infinite sustain. I prioritised exp on snakes and was able to evolve them very quick. Next area near me was big chunk of arctic terrain with shrines that gives arctic walking. With this buff and cutting off slowest units I was able to to clear basically any structure with very quick pace. After I scouted Dr. Lights and Refineus domains I started harass them without tacking unnecessary risks. I had very good map control and at this point game was basically over. Behind that I had good economy and excellent scouting. I didn`t expect that I could have such snowball game, but with a lot of luck and knowledge about maximising exp gaining, I think it was crucial, and some basic fighting it happened.

Nice game everyone. Blad was the clear winner here as I had an awful start and lost my early hero, army, and leader in combat before T10. But Blad helped me out with resources and advice and I was finally able to get some momentum going late in the game. Unfortunately, it was too late for me to contribute anything but I learned a lot so the playing time was still of value. Thanks Blad, for your patience with me and to everyone else for playing!

In general, I probably suffered the most in the beginning. I lost my leader due to a silly mistake against some pikemen underestimating their power and then the game really was terrible as I could not expand so well. My vassal city started with me in war state and all my starting forces were not so healthy as I expected and got killed eventually by approaching an Air node too early. Elementals and wisps wiped them out.

My experience with the Orcs melee. Nah.. Expected Novo's Apprentice to carry me from a point where I was lacking.

I have seen better games, but this one was not mine at all. I should not have started underground to begin with. Then all those TIER IV snakes came and Orcs were doomed. Then Dr Light blocked my throne city with a Bear so the final battle became outside walls. 

GG Blad. Never saw Rippjack in this game.

I will be on vacation until 3rd of January. So I will not be able to do my turns for awhile.

I think this game is going to be over soon anyway, so don't worry Rippjack... also, Refineus usually takes vacations from gaming during the holidays... you play when you play, we are patient people haha, just don't quit <smiletext0>

Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you know that with training for my new job I'm finding it hard to keep up with turns due to lack of time/energy at night. I'll do my best to keep up but would ask for your patience as I suspect this will get even harder with the holidays fast approaching.  Thanks.

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.

I had a crash when moving and making my turn. The game froze when I move over lava with a Cherub which is strange. First time I have a crash ever for a long time. So my turn will be treated as restarted, I will not get any benefits at all from it as I'm not in range for any battles at the moment.
