Looks like I forgot to add the 'downhit' variables into the tables.

But yeah, the message is pretty obvious.

If you've ended up in a bad spot, then you should have gone for a more challenging war.

Will the next person to attempt a downhit let me know if it's fixed now or not please?

MARS ATTACKS!

Postby General Andy Icarn » Wed Feb 13, 2008 9:51 pm

MARS ATTACKS!

I had the choice to go for the Vampire 6 spots above me or the defensively fortified dwarf 14 spots up....

Image

I went for the dwarf!Image

21 Venus 368,495 worth, 12316 land
35 Andy 303,731 worth, 9,319 land
both fully built

vvv

17 Andy 392,711 worth, 15612 land
47 Venus 175,751 worth, 6293 land

managed to get through about 7k dwarven ironfists and 100 forts for a total defense of 261850. V was at least carrying 4k scum which made invasion slightly doable.

Lemme know when/if you want peace. Til then war on!

edit: too many bloody dwarves up here anyway. Course this means I'm at...

WAR!

Springy has decided to step in the middle of Horza and I's war, unfortunately forcing me to grant peace to Horza so that he can have a better chance at retaliating against him. I hate solo sometimes... the war was clearly advertised and updated several times on the message board...

Asch decced on me, failed to get in.

It won't be for a few more hours until I get to bounce on his defenses in true dwarven fashion! Wars on!

springy was gracious and offered to return the acres. thorin also offered some acres to aid in my retal.

given their honourable responses to the situation, I'm not pissed at either of them. game is really flawed, though.

I'm done.

After Predator's failed initial strike, we proceeded to burn each other for a long time. Forcing him to fort himself with scum, I dsed all defensive troops and went all-out attack. It paid off, and I was finally able to take a few thousand acres. How the war ends is still unknown (I didn't have enough cash to let go of my firebeards and fort defense properly).

*edit* and he has just taken back even more land now :( poor me

Hit Ralph

Him 600k nw
Me 560k nw


He was forted offensive troops, with cash, and his previous war was started Feb 11th -- target now at 230k.

I figured the war was over and Ralph was planning on hitting tomorrow. If that's not the case, and I'm interrupting war, let me know and I'll return acres.

Hit ThothAmon. Doesn't look like he's been to war yet this age. I had 200 more acres and 6k more NW. Not the best warchoice but pretty even. The next choice was a dwarven that had 90k more NW. Max Forted t4 and didn't make a dent. Should be interesting. Good luck.

him: 432,070
me: 438,044

V counterattacked by burning for full turns and then slowly turn by turn sorcing. Started to take a toll but I waited for at least most actions. Invaded again and reforted temps. V asked for peace and I accepted. Too soon to retract the war declaration though. When I next use turns I will do so. Though still in offensive war mode and fairly unbuilt, I'm at...

PEACE

and so begins the battle of the Vampires.

Logged in to find two instances of hung scouts and a single controlled strike, from Sun Ce.

Responded by taking down his temples and cash, and then burnt a few guild halls.

Reforted by offering Sun Ce's money and then filling the new land with defensive troops :)

Stats prior to hit are:
Islia (1xxxx) - 261,285
Sun Ce (5xxxx) - 304,878

Sun Ce had you succeeded in scouted me, you'd have found that I had a little more land. Now after tithing a lot of your gold, I have even more.

The fact Andy was at war with you wouldn't prevent the declare. I suspect it was an attempted downhit on you V.

Was in a bit of a quandry - could not amass the cash needed to uphit 200k on a dwarven forted heavy defence nor did I want to downhit on the Dwarven 50k below me.

Tried to compromise - not sure how it will be viewed. I declared on the fellow below me, but only did a half hit (took 4k acres and then stopped) Hopefully I can get a decent war out of it. He definitely has the tools leftover to do damage.

Me - 726k
Other Guy - 675k
