Yeah I surrender. I made some early mistakes and started trying to do too much to come back from them.

Published on Thu, 01 Nov 2018 13:14:20 +0100

he already agreed in a private message on steam to the surrender

Published on Thu, 01 Nov 2018 12:11:15 +0100

If rookie surrender too, lets start our round 2 match plz

Published on Thu, 01 Nov 2018 07:56:57 +0100

Ok let´s see what rrrookie does but I once lost a 2v1 so I am cautious.
Sorry for the restarts again.
Hili evolved his 2 Knights, one Cavalry was a Quest reward I think.

i was stronger than my teammate so he wont mind, i think. he screwed up, i saw your army and what you cleared, the only chance for us was that i beat your stack, but that was made impossible last turn. i played very risky because i felt the need to accelerate. and then i screwed up as well. but even if not, would have been very difficult to challenge you both more or less alone until my teammate has raised reenforcements by production and crossed water and land. not to mention that we were both unlucky with heros and i was surrounded by 4 raider camps, 3 of which were undead, which prevented me from picking a lukrative route...could say more, but yeah, since it was already visible that we will lose, we ll try it in the loser's bracket. I normally dont quit that early, ask who you want

??? What's this Phirpo? You surrender like this? I seriously didn't expect that from you, especially in a team game.

Published on Sat, 27 Oct 2018 22:03:20 +0200

Ok thx. I don't get my screen recorded. It's only a black window. Despite googling, I didn't knoxw what to do so far. 
OBS will record in window mode my whole turns if the program keeps working. But if that isn't enough, only other option is fighting in auto mode, which won't please my team mate at all.

PS I will only come back here on bf to inform you about further crashes.

A cat has 9 lifes, gladis have as many it seems.
I recruited more judges and they decide you get another warning with proof.
Please record your turns from start to finish in the future.

Published on Wed, 24 Oct 2018 21:04:34 +0200

I guess this can only lead to a warning without proof.
I thought I turned the video on before.. It´s ridiculous

Somehow it was switched on:

But the window mode doesn´t bring any benefit as it simply stopped recording when the crash happened..

Published on Wed, 24 Oct 2018 20:54:45 +0200


If you had turned on video before you launch the game, as you said you would, it would have been very easy to judge.
Now I need to appoint 2 other judges and this will be a rather long process.

Please turn off the timer and no turns until green light.

Published on Wed, 24 Oct 2018 20:41:48 +0200

This is turning funny.
My game crashed when loading as I wanted to start that bloody Bandicam (Had no time to check OBS).
Iron Mode applied.

Playing with those Ironmode stuff really is no fun to me, so Judges may do what they are supposed to do

Published on Mon, 22 Oct 2018 16:47:47 +0200

OK, the evidence provided is enough for a "restart with proof" at this point.
You can continue the game.

Published on Sun, 21 Oct 2018 12:13:19 +0200


Hiliadan is the host so he probably know that he should remove the turn timer <smiletext0>

I will look through what you sent through and if need be appoint two other temporary judges.


Published on Sun, 21 Oct 2018 10:36:58 +0200

I just had one of my "no responding" crashes in a really unimportant fight.
Sent the screenshot to Marcus who is the only Judge for this game as it seems.

Sorry guys, but t least I had Safed and Exit Right before that small battle.

Published on Sat, 20 Oct 2018 21:57:39 +0200

You will loose anyway. So don´t care <smiletext1>

i wonder which team is our next victim

Published on Fri, 12 Oct 2018 13:07:41 +0200

A reminder that I am going out of the country today and will be back on Saturday the 20th. I may not be able to get any turns done so please turn the timer off but if I have time then I will make this game a priority.

Published on Wed, 10 Oct 2018 22:28:10 +0200

Please disable the timer. I arrived late at night and should just rest now and not thinking about any AoW madness tonight.
Maybe I can play tomorrow morning but I can't promise. 

Published on Sun, 07 Oct 2018 21:32:29 +0200

I could update it with the help of Fluks. As I said, at least I (Maybe others, too) have Problem with the Steam Workshop.

Published on Sun, 07 Oct 2018 20:17:58 +0200

..strange. are you sure you selected the right mod? as they are both called beta atm... 

Published on Sun, 07 Oct 2018 19:25:55 +0200

I somehow can´t enter the game as I have an old Version of the Balance mod.
I noticed on STeam that it got updated a few weeks ago?!
But after resubscribing, and Updating in the User Content Menu, the new Version of the Balance Mod isn´t generated in my User Content Folder?
I can´t Play until I can solve this issue!

Published on Sat, 06 Oct 2018 23:27:27 +0200

Phirpo,  you need to chill down. We are moving at a very good pace (probably among the fastest of all games) and it's  very likely  we will finish on time. 

Published on Sat, 06 Oct 2018 16:46:45 +0200

if all games of the tournament continue in this speed, we wont be able to finish it in this life...

Published on Tue, 02 Oct 2018 03:17:54 +0200

I will also be out of the country October 12 - 20 and will not be able to get many or any turns done during that period. Please keep the turn timer off that week.

Edit: whoops this was team only

Published on Mon, 01 Oct 2018 22:49:42 +0200

I currently can't play my turn due to the 1.802 update not yet available on GoG. So I keep the turn timer off, I guess it will be on GoG tomorrow or the day after.

Published on Sat, 29 Sep 2018 06:46:05 +0200

Whoops just realized the prior post was team only. Can’t make my turn until Sunday. Can you guys take the timer off? 

Published on Wed, 26 Sep 2018 13:58:52 +0200

The time I have up there is the time I can play my turn every single day, but usually it works out that I play my turn about 12-15 hours later than what my turn time is.

Also I am out of town this weekend Friday - Sunday and will not be able to do any turns until Sunday afternoon.

Published on Wed, 26 Sep 2018 07:21:07 +0200

No, a turn received in Midnight doesn't Help at all. Best would be ok 8 PM so I could play instantly or on the following day

Published on Wed, 26 Sep 2018 07:11:51 +0200

Thanks for your clarification Gladis!
I can understand what you say, but at the same time it was your teams decision to put you in spot 2.
Would you have been in spot 4 you could have eliminated this problem and you would likely have received your turn around midnight and therefore have more time the following day. On the other hand, the turn order seems optimized as it's now, allowing you all to make a turn in 24h which will help the tournament progress.

Published on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 23:17:13 +0200

Yes you have 3 hours to play your turn but your playtime says you play between 19:00 and 22:00 German time so that should be fine. The tournament can't be played by playing 1 turn every 2 days, that would mean the tournament would end in 4 years.

Published on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 23:15:33 +0200

I played my turn now.
But I´m basically saying that the turn timer is nonsense.
I get E-Mail notification but in the early morning. I forgot it during the day (or rather immediately as I´m really crocky each mornings^^)
+ rrrookie´s playtime means this Situation happens most of the time
+ I played the turn before last evening, so 24 h back. And now already I faced the Problem of missing my turn. That´s one reason I lost interest in AoW. Once playing tursn is more a Duty than a pleasure, it´s no good at all.

Have I expanded my Feelings sufficiently?

Published on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 20:59:33 +0200

Gladis, maybe you can expand on your feelings? Rrookkiee is listed as the player before you, and if he would take his turn at 1pm CET you have 9h to make your turn the same day, or if you are busy, you have 15h to send a message to say you are not able to. That is, if you are online at the stated playtime.

Still, you managed to send a message, so if your messaged included information that you are not able to make the turn, there is no problem.

Published on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 20:31:39 +0200

The 24 hours timer is shit. I wanted to sleep now, then was checking my mails again and saw that It's my turn since 5 AM. Are you kidding me? In fact it means I only have 3-4 hours to play my turn. Not 24. Because, believe it or not, I have to sleep and work, too.

sorry, forgot that. try again now

Published on Sat, 22 Sep 2018 00:17:15 +0200

It looks to me like phirpo joined at the wrong spot.
Maybe he is still choosing his class

Published on Fri, 21 Sep 2018 09:29:29 +0200

Settings looks good and we recieved both teams class/race so you can start the game.

Best of luck to both teams, should be a good one!
