3-normal match

I think DiaEmperador couldn't use his potential in teh match and Longinus was very unlucky. I had one risky decision in this game, when I decided to push further, pslit my forces and clear a wizard tower. that was my biggets mistake, as Ezekiel crushed my vulnerable weakened stack(s). besidest hat..,.nice game (:

A game that went like a dream for us, especially for me. I was planning to befriend as much indies as possible and go for a nice halfling boom that would enable me to be economically strong and support my teammates. And it went wonderfully, pretty quickly I could vassalize a Frostling City and the Naga dwelling in the center of the map. But it turned out that I was not the only one booming, AiX starting as Goblin underground was even faster than me and had even more cities up and running quickly. Our opponents weren't playing aggressive and so we were in a splendid position for midgame. At one point (don't quite remember the exact turn) Zytozid and me were clearing around a giant dwelling a bit south of the central map and decided to start pushing as we both had two rather strong stacks there, we weren't staying very close together as we approached enemy territory (so that we both had enough nice spots for clearing) but when Zytos main stack went underground it got taken out by an ambush of what was probably Ezekiels defenders stack. But this was far enough away and I had a fast swimming stack anyway and also I wasn't sure if they had spotted me yet so i kept pushing. I found a really nice direct way directly towards Longinus capital and took the opportunity to take it out with my fast leader-stack. I think it was the next turn when Longinus made a suicide attack with his leader on his burning capital. but he lost and was out of the game.
From there on it was 2v3 and that is never good. AiX also build a beacon of unity meaning that our opponents were fighting even more an uphill battle.
Dia Emperador was very careful and I have to say played it pretty well all things considered. He was in the north of the map on the surface and I had just taken Longinus capital in his back while he was going for a push towards the middle of the map and possibly my Naga dwelling(?). So he left strong stacks at his two main cities to defend and went forward with his leader stack. Unfortunately for him we had map control in that area and rather good intel on where he was and how he moved and I could move a strong necro stack around his main army that also could visit a shrine of rejuvination and that proved too much for his defensive forces at home, also AiX had snuck a 6er stack assassins there that DiaEmperador couldn't know about and when he came back to take his city with his leaderstack AiXs and my combined forces just outnumbered and overwhelmed him.
His capital was untouched yet but there was no hope of holding it. In the meantime however Ezekiel had appeared in the underground in the south, close to the beacon of unity and putting on quite a lot of pressure on AiX underground empire and naturally also to the capitals of Zyto and me who where close by. But he wasn't fast enough. My leaderstack and the slower accompanying army had taken all of Longinus old empire and I had split them because I knew Ezekiel had a very strong defense but I thought attacking from two sides might be too much. So my slower army (~9 units, mostly T2 animals + druids, apprentice and Naga) was moving to a cave entrance in the south, where I also had a hunter hiding and waiting in the Underground near an Inn while me leaderstack was moving to a cave entrance in the very norheast of the map, my hope was that Ezekiel might not even bothered to scout there and wasn't aware of that, or that he'd hope I wasn't aware of that. But he very well was and when my Leaderstack entered I saw that he was lying in wait with a very strong defense of about 16 units that were ready to pounce on me should I dare enter. That was too dangerous for me and I decided to just stay on the cave entrance above ground. If he would stay there my other stack reinforced by the units form the Inn would hopefully be enough to kill whatever units weren't in a stand-off with my leader in the north.
I don't know if Ezekiel was aware of that or if he just hoped to kill the main danger close to his home so he could focus more on his attack, but he attacked into my stack on the cave entrance stack by stack and lost all of them.

Then he and Longinus surrendered.
Good game everyone I was unreasonable lucky, this game went really close to perfect for me. I just wish I could say the same for the actual tournament match...
Thanks for the game everyone!
Attached are the maps showing AiX and my sprawl under and above ground. I was too stupid again and clicked the wrong buttons so I have no idea how the actual score looked.

Got an unexpected crash with no error message whatsoever - game just closed itself, no notice, no message. Good this is not part of a tournament. Cheers.

Hi guys, I might or might not take a longer to do my turns in the next one or two weeks, it's due to private reasons. I hope you understand. Will still try to do them fast/in time, of course but can't guarantee it.
