Cutedod editionDominions is a fantasy turn-based war game created by two dudes. One of them is a teacher.The game combines a simple presentation with an extremely wide array of strategic options, including over 3400 units, 1100 spells and 400 magic items. Turns are resolved simultaneously, with players planning battles rather than directly controlling them.It has simplistic graphics but is easily moddable and extremely deep.Basically, it's an autist’s wet dream of a war game.>Our pastebin (somewhat outdated)https://pastebin.com/wjbSA98Y>Steamgrouphttp://steamcommunity.com/groups/vanheimageofvidya>Multiplayer guide>Blitzserver (game hosting service)https://blitzserver.net>Llamaserver:http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1212948582>Documentationhttp://illwinter.com/dom5/docs.html>Tools>Mod inspectorhttp://larzm42.github.io/dom5inspector/>Wikihttps://illwiki.com/>Pretender calculatorhttp://pretenders5.testingmagic.ovh/>Debug modhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/oo492x2cs8vag34/debug509.zip?dl=0>Communion fatigue calculatorhttps://instacalc.com/53495>Automatically prevent starts in all provinces with less than X connectionshttps://nixx.is-fantabulo.us/dom5ranmapnos/>How do I change the fonts?Replace guifont.ttf, guifont_fancy.ttf and guifont_texty.ttf in the game's 'data' folder (C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Dominions5\data)>Completed gamesSubmit them here:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuclmaCiRo8vcTztsKjPJxnBgRDE-E1uNvE5j0x5wDZMMhRA/viewformResults:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuclmaCiRo8vcTztsKjPJxnBgRDE-E1uNvE5j0x5wDZMMhRA/viewanalytics>Fan arthttps://thronebooru.booru.org>Sloop’s Comfy Balance Modhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/136UJvYNSO3CbtB-D_mMLbXkPI7tqPSOKHcm2SQTsF7w/edit?usp=sharingPrevious cycle of the Wheel: >>421427789

Hi hi /domg/chads, fellow Ermorchad here with the new charts for season 4. This time I'll make it spicy and include the most sought out graphs - province count, and income.Top 5 Province count1. Vanheim2. Rus3. Mictlan4. Nief5. Ermor6. Kailasa (Honorable mention for coming back from bottom 10 to top 6 again)Top 5 Income1. Abysia/Rus (tie)2. Vanheim3. Nief4. Ermor5. LankaInteresting figures:-Despite being only 30% of the game population, bloods make up 70% of the leading nations.-Vanheim and Lanka made unexpected peace, right as neighboring nations go AI. Coincidence?-Honorable mention of Caelum coming back from lowest to mid tierTop 3 biggest armies held by 1. Lanka2. Mictlan3. ErmorTop Capital owned countVanheim 3Lanka 3Nief 2Ermor 2Tien Chi 2Wakandanon - I hope you're proud of me for keeping up the content. I might die soon however.
>>422236717>the most sought out graphs - province count, and income.Pretty sure that would be research.
>>422236717I don't think you'd bother to doctor this so I have no idea why your graph shows me with a bigger province count than my own.
>>422236717Now post the research graph, you know the one where you are leading.
>>422236717>>422237721I'm guessing the graphs got mixed up at that bend and it's not actually me in 6th place. Also I apologize for calling you a liar earlier, looks like my income was indeed bigger than yours before the war.
>>422239273>looks like my income was indeed bigger than yours before the war.To be fair, someone did say that he had a bigger income than you and the most likely guy for that would be Ermor.
Red slasher who just got their army wiped, your hunger sated yet?
>>422241254Who else is she even going to fight?
>>422241254Who and what game?
>>422242604I'll refrain from pointing any fingers. She knows who her neighbors are and, if she has bothered to do any scouting, knows their state as well. Considering the loss she just took she'd probably like some time off just to lick her wounds, assuming her neighbors allow that.>>422243151If it's not obvious to you it's not relevant to you.
Koumakan, Hakugyo and Yume, look at the time!
>>422243239>just let the threat that controls a third of the map finish off their enemies bro>just back out of the alliance after one loss broyeah
>>422244761>third of the mapI'll just point out that this is hugely exaggerated in the hopes no one actually falls for propaganda.
Just slew someone's prophet in a bump
>3v1>The 3 are getting their shit kickedI'm not sure if the bunny is a god player or if you 3 are bad.

Highly Responsive to Prayers in a nutshell.
>>422249420Still haven't seen her bless, for shame
>>422249420Accurate. I really need to take a break form this game once Simply and HRtP end, the stress just ain't worth it. And once I do return make sure not to mention who I was in those games.t. Eientei
>>422249830Awe, fateweaving, fortitude.
>>422250108What else did you expect was going to happen when you expanded like you did? I'm honest surprised that more people aren't joining against you.
>>422250393People were already calling me the threat turn six when someone pointed out my expansion strat, what else was there to do but step on the accelerator? In the end I think my expansion was only 23 or so provs, not even 50% more than fair share. The map does a good job of blocking players with other players.
>>422250108>AccurateFalse, I got your back bro.
Fear not my friends, leave Eientei to me.
I hope touhou anon is going to make an update with a new nation.

What's the worst way you all have been diplomonstered?
>>422236717>Rus>#2 in provinces #1 in income despite having multiple unholdable borders/salients>still on nobody's radar even though he should soon capture 3x gold mines and a cap from my AIPerhaps the only saving grace is that he's not a blood nation seeing how easy they got off this game.
>>422262301I really, really like this image.
>>422262301I love Blindfighters. I want a cute Blindfighter gf who can perfectly navigate the darkest caves but can't see my smile so she has to feel my face. Featureless helmets are fucking cool.
>>422262301Will submit my tendie in like 3 hours
>>422270320I am the diplomonster
why do you guys like this weird game
>when you see a wall of text
>>422275523>wow thats a lotta word-things>too bad-bad i cant read em
>>422274951Because I can make metal arms and stick them on all sorts of weird things.
>>422274951It’s a great strategy game with a simple presentation that has loads of variety and possible combinations plus great theming and interesting detailed backstories for everything which adds to the flavour.
>>422249420Needs Koumakan flying under the radar. They'll be bigger than bunnies when they finish eating AIs, they're already sieging Myouren's cap.
>reading an ubar guide>"take a couple of jinn and have your commander spam sulfur haze, your units will be immune to it!">test it out>jinn are not immune or even that resistant to sulfur hazeWas this written just to fuck with people?
>>422283165Sounds like the guy writing it has never cast sulphur haze in game. It does poison damage which, yeah, none of Ubar's units are resistant to.
>>422283165probably meant smokeless flame or whatever their busted national spell is
>>422283165>>422283414in vanilla the first poison effect checks fire and poison so any resistance to either nullifies itin sloops the poison effect only checks poison so fire resistance doesn't stop the poison
>>422270320I've only played like two /domg/ games. Second one I was Uruk and thought I was expanding really well, then Man came onto my ancestral home slice and I diplomatically asked him to leave and he said no and proceeded to eat my entire nation. It was traumatizing.
>>422270485>left the game about 5 days ago>still mad
>>422283901machakanigger?>t. left the game even before merusfag?>t. spent 15 turns stomping around without conquering a single fort
>>422283868Oh, is that an intentional change? Seems weird.
>>422284783it's in the changelog, probably did it to increase the small amount of fire magic that isn't shut down by fire res
>>422285275Seems to me like now even fewer people will want to cast because cloud spells already friendly fire hard and no one will be fully resisting that unless their army is made entirely of summer lions
>can't even remember how to expandThis is gonna be rough
>>422285608yeah it's not a clear cut buff, he should revert it
>>422287373recruit units, put in army, send them to a province, pray
>>422270485Oh wakanda, why did you leave? I miss your content
>>422287373You spend the first 12 turns building up units and then failspand on turn 13
>>422287373>prioritize cap ring until you have enough resources to expand well>recruit/prophetize turn 1>expand turn 2>new expansion party turn 4 with recruitment from turns 2-3>new expansion party every 1-2 turns>barbs, heavy cav, bone tribe, lizards, horse tribe, foul spawn, dark vines, longdead horsemen, cavemen, trogs and shades are scary and better saved for later with extra large parties
>>422289013>lizardsThe only wrong one here. Only giants have to fear the lizards, any reasonable expansion party should handle them fine.
agartha. agartha. asphodel. turns. now.
>>422289215they're like barbs with higher attack, an extra attack and higher morale, they're even worse than barbs but they go down even easier to arrow spam
Atlantis. C'tis. Lanka. Rus. Abysia. Yomi. T'ien Ch'i. Niefelheim. Vanheim. Mictlan. Helheim. Caelum. Kailasa. Mekone. Ermor. turns. now.
>>422287373Do not listen to >>422289013You should expand turn 1, anon. Think of all the extra provinces you could be taking when you get the snowball rolling as soon as possible! What could possibly go wrong?
>>422291246>turn one pretender suicide rush into barbarians
Are summoned air eles smart enough to jump straight to the backline?
>>422291287t. not a sigma based chad
If two armies are moving into each other, one of those armies is in a fort and the army moving onto the fort wins the collision check, does the other army act as if they had been put on patrol or do they just roll their thumbs inside the fort?
Koumakan, please press end turn.
>>422291246What a great idea, my friend. I'll be sure to expand with my awake god on turn 1.
>>422291246>TOP treasure in this province
How do you expand with wind riders as EA Arco? Do you script the windlord to fly into melee too or do you give him bodyguards and hang back? The guide I'm reading says you only need 4-8 riders per party but that seems low to me.
i cant wait for the next turn so i can go AI
>>422287757That is Agartha. Isn't even the first time Wakanda just left all his games at once, probably some health issue or he was feeling like a faggot
Best ways to heal affliction and/or disease?
>>422284783Sloop really hates Ubar, why are you surprised that he especially nerfed it?
>>422299705Hold for a turn or two then send them to attack rearThey often can pick off commanders then route the army before taking losses.The main thing is allowing the enemy to run ahead a bit before attacking so they have to run back
Sloops? More like *smirks* Poops
assfodell do your turn so i can go AI and put this game behind me.
>>422303170Arco, please be more mindful of people with 3rd-degree burns.
>>422301407Twiceborn are healed?
>>422303968Not guaranteed for every affliction but yes.
>two dudes went AI or stalled to death in lusty lamias in the first 10 turnsEA has fallen.
>>422304320well maybe if everyone wasnt such bullies i wouldnt cry and leave
>>422303428im not going AI till your fat ass blows out the last candle of my dominion, fag
>>422304320id go ai and stall in a game where people are spamming this
>>422262301whens it start?
>>42230753210 more players.
>>422307827if it isnt filled out in 7 hours ill join
>>422307532>>422307906that guy isn't me, I might let it go over the weekend to recruit the wagies and get maximum BIG
>>422262301Wait until it's 30+ players. Simply had 30 I think, the mega mod can allow for more. Though that means more AI, and stalers, but that's the price you pay for a big ambitious game.
big game means i get knocked out quicker. no thank you.
I’ve done my soul slay calculations once these rune smashers roll out you are DONE FOR
>>422304320I’ve already lost my cap to hellblessed Aphori so I’m not going to bother continuing
>>422310254Just don't be a scrub
>>422270485he's been on my radar since the start of the game but I have no desire to step on that bees nest seeing as how he can't just go and win the game immediately
>Ermor has GolemsThis is going to be a pain.
>>422314860How are golems scary
>>422310254Big game means I can survive longer because of luck. I'm terrible at this game and I've lasted quite a while in simplyEA.
New players are coming if dominions gets a spring sale discount
>>422315053Oh hey that's a pretty cool idea I've never seen, gotta do it myself eventually.
>>422285608>>422287397You're right, there are a number of F nations with innate fire res or who like taking it in a bless and they were all immune to friendly sulphur in vanilla. I'll revert it in the next version.If the anon who brought it up was going to play Ubar in Age of Rape I could patch it before the game starts if the admin doesn't mind.>>422301486I don't, the Ubar changes are just out of date and incomplete. I wrote most of them down not too long after Ubar came out, before I had a full grasp of how it's played. You can tell because I nerfed jinn spam without nerfing the most cancerous thing about Ubar, Shaytan.Now is a good time to revisit it if you give enough of a shit to leave some feedback and ideas. Ubar has three design flaws. One is jinn and how they're either cancer or hard countered with cheap blessings. The second is Shaytan who are nothing but cancer. The third is that the nation relies on abusing them both because everything else is mediocre.I'd like to nerf Shaytan to 3 RP and buff the weaker parts so Ubar has a stronger early game without being funnelled into jinn spam and other buffs to make up for less busted Shaytan and less jinn. Here's some ideas:(1/2)
>>422315613(2/2)>Reduce Houri/Shaytan gold cost since they've had their RP increased (their problem was how many you could mass, not their gold efficiency)>Corresponding slight discount to Jinn Sahir and up Jinn Emir from F1 to F2 with no cost increase>Higher magic leadership on jinn coms, like what naga got, and +10 to Tubbas to make expansion leadership more flexible (especially with Ghuls)>Buff to Tubba's magic, maybe an extra 50% chance for FAE? That gives you a rare chance for E2 out of cap, and that's E2 with a foot slot so they can boost to E3 and forge hammers>Guardian of the Forbidden Chambers 75g -> 70g, maybe a rec point reduction (currently 37)>Buff to Ghuls, since they're an iconic unit that's bad and it would help get Ubar early game army variety: slight rec point reduction, +1 str (first form), +1 def (both forms)? Is that enough? Can't go too nuts since they get a lot better once you buff their nat prot>Some kind of Ifrit buff, since they always take a back seat to Shaytans. Ifrit Warriors are especially rarely used. My only ideas are a resource cost reduction on their armor (mild buff; they currently cost 77 res after giving them a helmet) or increasing the rec limit from 1 to 2 (big buff, too big?). For Sultans, the S1 random makes them Magic Duel bait, but it's also your only source of S1 so maybe it should be left aloneI think the human troops are good enough. Brazen Guard are solid for EA.
Good battle this turn. Both sides opened with immediate communions and battlefield spells; Divine Blessing and Flaming Arrows for both, I had Wind Guide and Arrow Fend as well and he had Howl. Went from there into firm advantage toward me, as I had both a lot more archers to benefit from Flaming Arrows and much better follow-up with Gifts from Heaven and Thunder Strike while Patala's casters were mucking about with healing spells. The knights on the flanks broke the ape charge there while letting the center through, which thinned their flow enough that the archers and mages were killing them as fast as they arrived. By the time the knights were dead so were the bulk of Patala's troops, and the rest fled.I made a few easily avoidable mistakes; several of my commanders died to Howl because the troops around them walked forward since they started out of range, and I miscounted my fire gems on the fire magister who summoned a fire elemental in my backline and started burning my own guys to death. I opened the battle with some air elementals in hopes that their flying in would disrupt his plans/targeting early on, but they died incredibly quickly so that was probably a waste of air gems and I'd have been better off with more thunder strikes. Overall, though, I'm happy with how this turned out.
>>422315613Put back the AN fire damage in the cap, that was soulful as fuck and 2 AN is nothing.
>>422316262b-b-but my longdeadirninos!?!?
>>422315613>>422315802Revert the Throne scale changes, I miss the layer of strategy they added
>>422315821I am honestly confused on why my mages went off script this fight. The only spell that got cast that was supposed to be cast was howl. I don't understand why heal was being spammed as much as it was too. Weird battle on my part all around.
>>422315802Ifrit Warriors are expensive enough, both gold and Res wise that increasing the Rec Limit isn't going to be that much of a deal break.
>>422236717Are you dying to Mictlan? Post his bless+armies+strategies. There's likely very little I can do to help but I may be able to offer some assistance. I will do so for free, depending
>>422320315Ermor is fighting Kailasa, Mictlan and Vanhein. Mictlan took 2 forts on his cap circle and Vanhein is sieging everything else besides the cap.
>>422321783Does Vanheim need to be stopped?
>>422321783Jesus fucking christ
>>422317260>making bad gambles going growth 2 in pretender selection is a layer of strategySorry anon, I value not getting cucked with redundant or detrimental thrones more. If there's a throne I want every reason to take it and claim it, simple as. You get less premature throne rushes that way too from players leaving an icky throne of death untaken all game.>>422319668Yeah, they're so far from good as it is that reclimit 2 must be the way to go.
>>422321783ERMOR WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY SOMETHING. I WOULD HAVE HELPED YOU IMMEDIATELY. POST YOUR TACTICAL SITUATION FOR CHRIST'S SAKE
>>422321987Why would anyone want to come to Ermor's defense?
>>422321836Does the elvish blood nation that has the most caps, the most provinces and is 3dr on income needs to be stopped?
>>422321950Hey Sloop, just saying that I love Inferno Warriors and it is the best thing you have done in the mod by far. Could you please add a Holy Fire Warrior that is Holy Pyre version of Inferno Warriors? Could MA Marignon's national spell.
>>422322153HE IS BASED AND MY FRIEND. I, YOMI, SHALL BE COMING TO HIS AID. I SHALL BE REMOVING ELVES FROM THIS GAME. THE ELVES WILL FEAR THE SAMURAI
>>422321783>Vanhein is sieging everything else besides the cap.last I checked ermor had more than three forts>>422322203>Does the elvish blood nation that has the most capsI didn't say anything yesterday because I was busy but Ermor is full of shit when he says this since he's counting having a thug sitting on a cap with no way to actually take it as having one, in terms of caps I actually control the number is still one. Pic related being one of the three he is referring to.
>>422322559Ermor is a fucking rat that tried to sell out C'tis and embarked on a greedy 4v1 in distant lands instead of dealing with the blood nation right next door. He's only getting what he deserves.
>>422322559He is also someone who lies to your face to induce said aid
>>422322559do you even border Vanheim
>>422323065*stygian paths onto his capital*
>>422323065I think he has a province that borders mine though I might be misremembering since provinces have shifted since then
>>422323065YES.I AM SORRY VANHEIM YOU WERE ALSO BASED. I WISH YOU WERE NOT AN ELF, AND THAT THINGS WERE DIFFERENT. UNFORTUNATELY YOU MUST TASTE 10,000x FOLDED JAPANESE STEEL.
>>422322559Out of curiosity, how are things going with Helheim?
>>422323715Since I am an honorable man, and have nothing to hide, I will tell you.I am sieging his cap and systematically taking his territories and sieging his other forts with thugs. My ninja Oni are assassinating his commanders outside of his cap. He has made several attempts to fight me but is unable to kill my Oni. I expect him to go AI at some point due to my obnoxious playstyle and not being able to stop me.THE SAME FATE AWAITS ALL KNIFE-EARS
>>422323715Yomi still hasn't beaten Helheim
>>422324304Why has it taken you 30+ turns to get to this point even though Helheim took a meme bless?
>>422324596I have been site searching. My hibernation is over
>>422324842Site searching for 30 turns? Against a guy with a bless so shit that it induced vomiting in some players that I've spoken to? On a bless nation at that?
>>422325206Uh huh and how does site searching that much help with the war anyways?
>>422325601well one thing I should justExcuse me for one second.
>>422326275Well that was wonderful, a good time was had by all, I'm pooped
>>422326387Yeah I should probably be doing tu- GOOD LORD WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THAT ELF WAR!
>>422327294Elf genocide?! With an untaken cap! This deep into the game! With Caelum abandoning the war at that!?
>>422320315Personally I don't like to cry about it, unlike a certain ancestor of mine *wink wink nudge nudge poke poke*Well, Mictlan has only one strategy. Summon ozelots. That's it. It kills everything I have. He buffs it with ethereal, blood str bonus, and quickness so they have 6 attacks with 30+ str.>>422321987Based enlightenedelfremover. I've accepted death, but not without taking down a few traitorous furries down with me. But I've sent a message this turn that summarizes what would help me. You're the most based player in the whole game.>>422321836Up to you. Do you enjoy storm demons? Ah fuck it might as well just say it here. Vanheim has a site with 15% blood discount in 565. Here's a summary.>>422327898based

>>422330326It costs 16 blood slaves to summon 3 of them. He either has blood 8 or a ton of mages summon ozelolts every turn so he spent at least 29 mage turns worth of summoning at this point which is also 464 blood slaves unless im retarded
>>422330731Have you never fought against a blood nation before or something?
>>422330867...No but i guess i should now
>>422330731Yes, and? He can make more than that

>>422330371Is this Wakanda? Are you sucking your own cock for some reason?
>>422310254Big game means there's guaranteed to be some better than average players. It's easier to survive longer since not as much on the game's attention is going to be on me and perhaps I can learn something if I stick with it for long enough.
>>422307098you /domg/iggers went AI long before we PPHchuds revealed we colonised your game. dont worry though loser.. we knew you guys couldn't play games to conclusion, we'll finish this one nicely for u guys.. let u pump up ur multiplayer KPIs..

I have more unburied corpses in my lands than I know what to do with. What are some ways to use them?
>>422367784Raven Feast if you are a Air nation and Carrion Reanimation if you are a Death nation and need siege chaff.
>>422367979Raven feast is such a meme.>Using a mage turn to get net zero income>Using air gems to get maybe net +1 or 2 death gems>Net lose 10 research for 1 or 2 death gems.
>>422372487I mean, you need 2 gems to turn into 1 pearl and then 2 pearls to turn into another kind of gem, so if you have an excess of A and unburied corpses and want Death gems is far more efficient than alchemizing. The annoying thing is the very high path requirement for a mediocre at best spell.
Nice Phlegra, that is one spicy thug.
>>422374194dies to soul slay
>>422374321how many soul slays
>>422375975It has 27 MR after Iron WIll, so you will need a huge battery or be really lucky to kill him.
>>422374194phlegra's so fun. i just wish they had better death income, it's pretty annoying if you get unlucky with death sites since each tyrant costs 25 gems to twiceborn
Do flaming arrows work on meme ranged attacks like dragon breath or shedim lightning?
>>422374194Wait ring of regeneration works on undead?
>>422379107Of course it works.
>>422379107yes, it's only inanimates that can't regen
>>422382281I 'member when you could give true regeneration to everything including inanimates by going N9
>>422374194I have a plan for killing him but yeah I've been looking at MR check probability math & what I can commit to that as an option but there are other ways its hard as hell to beat like one amulet of antimagic thoI mean you need to spend like 30 gems to kit out a mage with magic pen gear to counteract all the MR of one amulet..I'd really like to hellbind heart him but I think there are easier ways. I have a couple options to deal with him basically I just need some time to set it upmight not matter if I can't kill his tendie
where my natgen rapist chads atnoobdies ever posting abt this game..
>>422384882It's crazy that people are letting Phlgra run wild like he is, if Abysia falls everyone is fucked and no one seems to care.
Uh…. Why did you send me like thousands of gold? Do you want me to invade you easier or something?I’m gonna have 4 caps soon at this rate and a billion horse archers.

>>422385320Good timing, here's my first big battles and there won't be many more because I can't replace any of this. This 1v2 war has been going since right after expansion when an alliance of blue balled ratfuckers and incelephants tried to force their way into my fine whoring establishment despite the listed height requirement and the WE DON'T SERVE INDIANS sign.In the beginning I got greedy making more forts than I should have and I fucked up vs the incelephants when my mages hid during a fort defence because I'm not used to playing elves. If not for that maybe I could have stopped them from grabbing my income and dooming me to a slow death, but at least I'm bleeding them all the way to the grave. I'm having fun.>GapadaThe incelephants have 21 MR on their magic power sacreds so Tempting Wombs almost never works on them. I might have won if all 23 of my mages didn't spend 5 turns casting Fire Flies against sacreds with 19 prot and 5 fire res as soon as they went off script instead of using their area charm spell.>GondmomarkThis one was closer than it should have been because my high morale heavy elf whores routed after losing 1 out of 30 units. Lucky for me the ratfuckers made their manlet militia ethereal instead of their sacred 22 def rat cav and I domed them all with indy archers.
page 10? not on my watchwake up burgers, it's time to do turns
>>422372487The scaling is dogshit. Warhammer Complete has a similar spell that turns dead bodies into death gems but it scales linearly so if you black plague a province you get shitloads of gems. Its actually really fun. I hate illwinter so much.
>>422415181it's thematic. the ravens eat most everything so there's not much left to turn into gems
Are some sites harder to find than others? I have loads of death income just searching around with my death 1 indies and yet even with air 2-3 mages searching my air income is like half my death incomeI guess my death searching is pretty efficient since I’m using bats and occasional dark knowledge but still, I have lots of high path air mages searching and far fewer air sites.
>>422415539different terrains have different average gem value per school, and yes some sites (not paths) are only visible with higher level site searching
>>422415539Rule of thumb is YOU DONT GET SHITBecome a bloodchad.
>>422417660I’m consistently the top gemmie incum in every gameDo you niggas even site search?What good’s them learnin’ if ya’ll ain’t got no ice??

>>422418259Bring it chink
If I queue up a spell my mage can't cast sometimes it's red and sometimes it's grey. What's the difference? I'm guessing one means he can cast it if he spends one gem on it and the other means he can't cast it at all, but which is which?
>>422328194>>422322667>>422236717How did vanheim get so huge? And why in the hell is he helping mictlan?

not the guy who usually posts this, and you probably already noticed, butnew 2hu turn is on.>>422363985Well, someone (me) almost won a siege fair and square then had the entire army (three squads of infantry and like five cavs, woo big scary army) wiped by a mage, so i've taken a truce of shame with the buns. Maybe after I get more troops I'll try my chances with the vamps or the lunatics next, who knows.and whoever sent me that youtube guide link, how am I supposed to pull it out of the dom5 message interface? I can't exactly select it then copypaste it.
>>422426235I’m considering LA Pythium because I’ve been wanting a chance to play it.
>>422427515For copy pasting text in dom messages you don't. You'll literally have to take a screenshot and type it in manually.___________________. That simple
>>422427515Have you tried remembering your message and typing it over again?Tbh I often type it out in a notepad first then copy it into the game so ai can check prov numbers and things

>>422425359No, that map was awful, please no.
Ushirodo bringing the heat against Eientei, will the bunny survive?

>>422432990>she attackedHey, none of these wars were started by me.
beatiful therodos we are ready. flying through turns for now but shame hinnom went staled..

Luck chads we dining good tonight.
>>422440386great way of outing yourself as the threat, idiot!
>>422440386I recognize that black space behind the message. If you send that gold to the owner of province 47 I won't reveal who you are.
>>422440386>not 1440 goldweak, get on my levelActually how does it decide how much gold to give? I need to know it to maximize my luckmaxxing even further
>>422441842It seems like death really is just quite common
>>422441842Reviewing this for minmax purposes (level 3 is always better btw)Fire - level 1 is sufficient.Air - you really want level 2.Water - no way around level 3Earth - level 1 is ok, but you really want 3Astral - Looks like you really want 2Death - Level 1 is mostly fine, you really want 2Nature - pretty large boost from most biomes by searching level 2Blood - level 1 is fine for almost everything, but level 2 seems to find everything.Holy - level 1 seems to find almost everything, level 2 finds the site in cave that you can't find.
>>422443323>>422440386Luck is for losers. Real chads dine good every turn on their massive empire and their great scales.

do undisciplined commanders really follow your commands?
>>422448405undisciplined female commanders only seem to follow the command to crush my balls
>>422448405they do, they just smell bad and pick their nose while doing it
>>422449096based. I can work with this
>>422450471did the shamans and the ir*sh burn to death from their own allies' heat aura?
>>422450471Bronze Colossus is such a dumb chassis holy shit do I hate it.
>>422452081>Just soul slay bro :^)
>>422450471>sc got on a sc nationis this because you can't really bless tyrants?
>>422451920no, they were given some fr. they got TRAMPLED
>>422453751a bless does literally nothing, it's not like mekone where some of your commanders are sacred. you either take some awake expander or do like i did and take some dormant SC
>>422455283When I played LA Phlegra I took a bless that made shrouds work as ghetto Rainbow Armor.
>>422455690yeah, just on ma phlegra it's more annoying to get a shroud factory online since your only access to astral without indies is a single hero.
Can anyone explain what happened to this bronze colossus? This isn't from an ongoing game btw, just some single player testing.
>>422456858it got bored of the battle taking too long and fucked off to a different plane of existence
>>422456858he routed (probably due to turn timer) and because he is mindless and providing his own leadership (he stops providing it upon rout). He no longer has leadership as a mindless and melts into nothing.
>>422457134Wait, a commander stops counting as leadership as soon as they enter routing state? I thought it only happens when they leave the field.
>>422450471fuuuuckk I should have waited till I had more earth mages ffuuusssckk
>>422459953also I forget how much fire res he had but I had like every mage casting incinerate which is armor negating.. he must had like 25+ dam
Could I please get a two hour extension on simply?
>>422460365He has 15 FR, the issue is that your mages weren't casting Incinerate, they were casting dumb spells like holy avenger, rage or bonds of fire, if they had spammed Incinerate you might have managed to kill it, maybe.
>>422462556Obviously the AI is not going to target the enemy with resists with incinerate even if it has a decent chance to do some damage and nothing else does.
>>422462681I hate the AI so fucking much, Abysia probably would have won if the AI wasn't so fucking retarded.
>>422462854soundS LIKE SOMEONE GOT TROGGED.COM
>>422462854I unironically dont know how I fucked the scripting upI literally have my earth 3 mage right next to him scripted to cast shatter and he casts holy blessinglike 13 incinerate casters in perfect position, and almost all of them cast holy word Like I get it when some of them choose to incinerate phantasmal warriors. thats retarded but it makes sense.. but they didnt even stick to script
>>422466871don't worry brother that bonds of fire is sure to keep him at bay instead
>>422466954that was one of the better off script spells because it bought me an extra round of holy blessings
>>422466871>tfw in a few turns whether I live or die in a game will be decided by how useful the shit my mages cast off script isSuddenly I don't feel very confident.
>>422462681>>422466871Were they in range?
>>422461069ya, of my dick
>>422467639Hope you have improved casting AI or Sloops brother
>>422467937those spells are like 30 range iirc so they should be in range
>>422467937Shatter has range 30. That was just the AI being retarded and avoiding Shatter.
>>422457134I thought mindless commanders were unroutable. Indersding. So to make a True SC you need a mindless berserk fatigueless SC?
>>422473031Everything routs at turn 100, mindless just dissolve instead of running when they're broken. They also can't berserk so no.
>>422469790That battle was with sloop.
>>422473145Yeah but at least you can get to turn 100 and by then your enemy's non-mindless stuff should have already routed.
>>422473145>Everything routs at turn 100berserkers stay which means that you'll be forced to the kill timer if surrounded by them>>422472036>>422472680maybe it's a range thing and it would have worked if you advance+casted
>>422473343>maybe it's a range thingAre you dumb? You can literally see the mages right next to the colossus here.>>422466871
>>422452081I love it. I've never used one but it's still my favorite chassis.
If my thug has less HP than a full square of troops within range, will my fluffer still target the thug with point buffs?
Let big game start
>>422477427it must go even further beyond
Thinking of taking a break from dominos after my current games finish. Talk me into joining the BIG GAME
>>422477634it's BIG and is going to be the focus of posts in the thread for a while after it starts
>>422466871Honestly was a very fun battle to watch Aby. Sorry to see that statue ruined your fun.
>>422477634it gon be BIG
>>422473031round 75 - attacks rout except berserking unitsround 90 - defenders rout except berserking unitsround 115? - everything routs (again) except berserking unitsround 125? - starts killing things on the field regardless of rout status each round
>>422477716but I'll be free from the thread when my gaems finish
>>422478830more like 90, 100 and at 160 everything dies instantly
>>422478830>>422478993this shit is very gay
>>422477634You probably won't last post turn 3 so joining is not an issue
I was sure that Arco would either send his main army to charge my cap or to take the nearest fort, so I felt pretty safe sending my pretender to sweep in behind him and retake one of the provinces on his invasion path. Turns out that he tried to abandon his attack and go fight T'ien Ch'i's armies who are currently hitting him in the back instead, and ran straight into my pretender.When I started watching the battle I was sure I'd lose, but I guess you just can't beat The Violence Inherent In The System.
>>422479875Whoops, missed file
>>422480186Absolutely based boar.
>>422480186nerf boar, boar OPt. plainly ctis
>>422473343I figured out the reason it didnt work was actually because of this (per wiki)> Note that the AI will regard units with high amounts of elemental resistance as being immune to spells of that damage type, even when they are clearly not. The AI might refuse to cast elemental damage spells if all possible targets have high elemental resistance.I guess 15 counts as high. some of his gigantes got shredded by incinerates with their 5 fire resist
>>422481035Wow, the AI is even dumber than I thought it was and there is still the shatter that the AI refused to use.
Pangea, TNN please do turns.
>>422481035in a mages vs SC scenario they do follow the script but i guess the gigantes were too juicy to ignore here
>>422473631What battle round was that image taken?
>>422480186Well I'm fucked
>>422481724Why are you in such a hurry?
Goat for u dudes
>>422487108I want see Asphodel being punched in the face by Mari-chan.
>>422486203I assume he wants to play domingoes
>>422487108Call me Ahmed because I wanna fuck that goat
>>422488898Ahmed please, think of the children.
>>422488650waiting for the next turn IS playing domingoes
>>422489254They'll just have to put up with being half goat
wolves are still the best generic summon to use when patrolling, right?I'd use vine men but being mindless I think that they're even worse than undisciplined and less gem-efficient
Based, see you on the battlefront.I made a slight mistake. Whoops.
early grave lanky kong, turn now
which is the most powerful age in all ages games?
>>422490785how long do you have before he breaches your fort? If you have several turns pull all your scouts back to your cap
>>422480186Plz leave him alone he's the only one who responded to my cry for help against the chink menace
>>422500398Actually he sent me a pile of gold and I used it to invade him
>>422501193I tried using it for diplomacy
>>422501193what the fuck is going on in this game
>>422496981>No defense against an awake pretender or sacredsmany cases
>>422506893i don't even think oceania is killing him, he might have just failspanded
>>422501629And it workedI was probably going to sit around and research/build more infrastructure otherwise
>>422465728why did they do that
>>422514751instantly routed might not have even had a commander, because they're tramplers they probably tried to trample each other or some stupid shit
New 2hu turn frens.
I crave turns.
This might be a stupid question but does having a scout in an indie territory give you a better estimate of what troops are there? I'm talking specifically about territories you can already see without a scout, like your cap ring on turn 2.
>>422537684yep, slightly less and shows you commandershttps://illwiki.com/dom5/scout-reports
>do testing>accidentally domkill one side or the other wihile passing turns
>>422539995BasedHas anyone here tried a domkill focused strategy?Maybe a nation with lots of good priests like Pythium + high dom
>>422540980ma man can recruit stealthy priests but you're really not going to domkill anyone unless they are ea/la mictlan and just forget to blood sac. ea arco can also recruit stealthy heretics
>>422542795MA Mari can put the inquisition items on their own stealthy priests, and has a strong reason to take lots of candles as well as built temples in unforted provinces. Stealthy heretics are a bit more common (bouda, abba, bitch mother, jap summon tanuki), but I don't think any of the nations that get them beat MA Mari in sheer domkill potential.

hey asphodel if you keep doing your turn at the absolute last second i'm just going to set you ai, go AI or do your turns you baby
Makedon looks like hes ready for war. But with whom?
>>422556192Hello admin I regret to inform you that I cannot really help having my turns go slowly since they are the result of me being fairly busy compared to usual. However I would like to ask that you don't AI me because of that I am actually doing my turns.
>>422558386hello if you are actually asphodel then you are doing your turns last and not doubling every time :)i see through your jewish tricks
By the way, Fomoria is taking Hinnoms cap.
>>422558462I mean I am but that's the result of me having to run over to do my other turns in the time I have available rather than something I can actually help.
>>422558462Hes doing his turns, leave him alone.
>>422558462He is doing his turns, stop power tripping.
>>422558462Funny how you never said anything when Mari or Arco were doing their turn last.
>>422558462>:)I don't care about your game but you type like a passive aggressive woman and that's pathetic.
>make a neat aesthetic formation>realise enemy has fliers>have to make big blocks to protect my magesI hate fliers
SCBM updated to v1.10, a small update reverting Sulphur Haze's primary effect from poison res negates to poison/fire res negates, reducing/removing the minimum turn requirements on various heroes and implementing the Ubar changes that were discussed.BIG GAME admin can update to this without affecting anything in case someone was wanting to play a better edited Ubar.
>>422569354Hey sloop, can you do something the AI targeting so you don't end up in that Abysia situation where his mages could kill the Colossus but refused because of AI retardation?
>>422569745You can only mod what Illwinter lets you mod. Stuff like how AI weighs elemental resistances is hardcoded.
>>422570348How about the shatter prefence? Abysia had mages that could cast shatter, they were definitely in range, but they just didn't.
>>422570448they were too busy fucking their gfs and getting nominated for nobel prizes
>>422570953I mean we've all been there
>>422466871skill issueor should've used lucids casting mod or sth
When is the review Sseth!!!

siege strength is based on strengthpatrol strength is precision and movementwhat determines pillaging?
>>422574625Movement and chassis value iirc
>>422574786I think fear also helps pillage value, but fuck me if I know by how much.
>>422570448You sure? Shatter is E3 and 15 range, and it does so much AN damage it should get prioritized no matter what.>>422573123That one doesn't do anything with Shatter. I'm sure it would if such an important spell was underprioritized.
>>422583342My colossus is just too powerful to be shattered, simple as.
The BIG GAME has 24 players... that's big. It could be BIGGER. 48 hour countdown starts tomorrow. Ubar bro, I updated to the new sloop, come get hazey.

How do you beat Lanka past the early game?
>>422606280kill them in the early game. the game's not balanced, and that's a good thing. it creates dynamic strategy and thematic storylines. same with sceleria, nazca, berytos, ect. you kill them early or you lose. and that's a good thing.
>>422606398But the Lanka I'm up against isn't in the early game.
>>422606280You don't. Wailing winds is an I win button
>>422606491then you lose. you should have killed them before they had wailing winds and blood rain. now you can enjoy the thematicism of your entire army routing within 3 combat rounds, and even if you're a nature nation casting growing fury just isn't enough! your guys route too damn fast! have fun losing!
>>422598139Does the ai actually use the fatigue reduction well when it goes beyond the script?
>>422606493>>422606581Can I do anything with thugs?
>>422607083not if they're living because they get life for a lifed. golems are your only real option or some lifeless thugs like marble oracles or something
>>422607083sure but he can cloud trapeze on top of your thugs before they can move away from the province, I think you can stealth out through, before the ritual phase
>>422607229>highest morale troop is 13 base>thugs are all livingIs there any way to win a 1v1?>>422607449My thugs can't stealth
>>422607760just be yourself
>>422607760sit back and enjoy the thematicism.
New 2hu turn.
>>422607760Make some of these
Fuck, I made the mistake of splitting my army, putting the bulk of it in a fort that was sieged that same turn so now they are stuck in there. And the dumbest thing about this game is that you cant move an army to fight in the same battle as an army breaking the siege.
>>422613640Yeah I hate that too. If anything you should be able to pincer the siegeing army.
ritual of rebirth
>>422592219>>422592363its weird how it doesn't show up on blitzerserver browser 2 big 4 blitzmin to handle?
>>422621410The game is set to unlisted.
>>422606280High holy magic and demon banishment kills Lanka since everything good it has is Demons, also flaming arrows and big fire magic.

>>422236717I've just been minding my own biz all game, taking a province here and there as I'm comfortable based on disposition of forces but it seems like I'm surrounded by diplomonsters because I have been receiving threats and offers all game that I have more or less ignored because I don't want to be manipulated (again).Hopefully the rest of my neighbors go AI soon and I can begin my empire.

>>422652728I started the 48hr timer, you got until then to join and finish pretenders. I'll make a map on the final day.
>>422653109Hope more people join since this is close to being the biggest game in the general
>>422653513Simply was bigger still but this has the potential to go even further beyond because we're not going to run out of nations anytime soon
>>422653684Five more and it will be surpassed
>>422653109why make a map, when perfection is at an arms reachhttps://blitzserver.net/map/46
>>422649218This is why you take an awake site searcher
>easy researchshall be going ai turn 1
>>422662850oh, so I can change the master password but not the game passwordare you going to keep sabotaging the settings so I have to remake the game or get blitzmin to reset the password?
>>422663269? take your meds
>>422664624I'm right here what in the goddamn
can you earth meld flying units?
>>422664743Russian intelligence hacked into our server Oberführer Blitzmin.W-what do we do now?
>>422664743oh shitCan you change the game pw of this game and mail it to me here?https://blitzserver.net/game/1318#status
>>422665002This is an elaborate attempt by a third party to get a hold of the password isn't it
>>422665002What's the first and last letters?
As a response to this tomfoolery I will be creating my own BIG GAMEobviously these nigger admins can't be trusted
>>422665125I can tell Blitzmin what the original pw is over email to confirm.
>>422665161N & R
>>422665125>>422665231Isn't the problem that some other guy knows the password too
>>422665161d and s
>>422665202I wanna see a meme knife fight game. Lots of players, less than two provinces per player, absolute bloodbath.
>>422665324yeah but he's just posting like a retard right now instead of impersonating me or something, so if blitzmin can send a new pw to my email now it should be smooth sailing
>>422665561Unless you are the hacker
>>422665161I sent you a reply blitzmin>>422665614it's sabotage all the way down bro
This is why we need a discord, sisters
how did you fuck up this badly baka use a random password generator next time
>>422666506This. Just get a password manager, at least for your admin passwords if nothing else.
>>422666506noooo my password has to be a heckin cool buzzworderino because i'm so funny and like using the nigger word or some derivative
Crisis averted probably, thanks blitzmin. Age of Rape is okay, I put the countdown back where it was.>>422666719It wasn't even a buzzword, it was just something really close to dominions.
>>422667091that's it, i'm joining the game
>>422666904Tell us, so we can judge.No harm in it, you have your new password
>>422666904Was it "dominos"?
>>422667532I'm going to murder you
>>422667532not too bad, but is there really a fag here who tries to guess password for every game for some le epic trole
>>422666904>>422666954>>422667350>>422667482>>422668365I don't want to say this after all that but it's better than him lying low and fucking up the game on turn 25. If you're logged into admin you stay logged in even if the pw changes, so I think the game still has to move to a new game lobby that the guesser was never logged into.
Ulm please... your turn...
Pythium WILL stall
>>4224182592 more turns…. The prophecy is coming true
>>422670275Sorry I was busy having sex and watching anime with my wife
non-sexhavers...when will it be our turn
sorry boys the old BIG GAME can't be uncompromised even with a password reset >>422669937, I'd be a badmin if I let the game start and it got messed with by some fag. Resubmit your tendies here, once most of the original players are back I'll set a shorter timer and start it.https://blitzserver.net/game/1328#statushttps://blitzserver.net/game/1328#statushttps://blitzserver.net/game/1328#status
>>422672706Sadly the average person pays no attention to anything so undoubtedly this will lead to fewer people
>>422672803for sure it's not going to be as big as it was, I really hate it, but letting some fag kill the BIG GAME when everyone's having fun would be even worse, so I had to do it.
>>422672706youre a special kind of faggot to mess with a game barely anyone plays, whoever you are.
>>422672706I don't get it. Are you afraid that the guy who got your password fucked with random people's tendies, replacing them with identically named ones?
>>422673678no, I'm afraid he'd randomly forcehost, rollback, fuck with the timer or unstart the game. I could make sure the settings were right before starting it but I couldn't stop him from killing the game once it actually started.
>>422672706I’m not joiningI’ll make my own game if I want to play another since I’m apparently the only regular Admin here who has basic long term memory
>>422674365>basic long term memoryIs there a history of autists guessing game passwords more complex than nigger?
>>422672706I'll join but I imagine a lot of people won't.Blitzserver should randomly generate a password for every game, clearly badmins can't be trusted with opsec
>PlainlyArco went AI Wtf was he even trying to do this game?Invade Man and lose a stack to his boar god?Send me literally 4000 gold the turn before I invade him?Go AI after like 2 turns and losing his entire territory to Man and I.
>>422675702understandable, for what it's worth the new password is strong and I'll get the game on the road fast. I'll wait a day or until we hit 20 players again, then set a 24hr countdown to start. That way it starts only a few hours later than it was going to before.
>>422675894Plan was to invade Man with Patala and give you money to avoid a war on two fronts
>>422676762>4000 gold bribegalaxy brain diplo
>>422677546It's not like there are guides on how much gold to send to avoid war
>>422670129The trees require extra attention today. I promise to doubleturn as soon as I can, and i'll probably be back home before the rollover
>>422678370It's all good, brotha-man
>>422677827maybe the first step should be to talk with them enough so you know if they are even willing to agree to it. no matter what, giving payments is a sign that you are scared of who you are giving the money to otherwise you wouldnt be trying to bribe them.
>>422677827>grossly weaken yourself while giving a huge gift to the guy you're scared of>he thinks this will make him LESS likely to attackare you a gecko?
>>422679030That actually didn't weaken me much
>>422679657>That actually didn't weaken me much
>>422679657>have extra gold>have neighbor I don’t want to go to war withThe correct move is “here bro I’m rolling in cash and already have enough forts, good luck with your wars ;)” not “h-here’s some gold so you don’t hurt me. I’m scared”
What would be a good pretender for EA Sloth Arco? I rainbow feels pretty natural, but I guess I could see an SC being useful too.And what are some key research goals to have in mind? Fog warriors is a given but how do you add more killyness. Or should it all come from mages?
>>422689570imprisoned rainbow with a big strength bless and larger, wind riders need strength to kill stuff
>over half the players signed up again alreadyBIGGAMEbros, WAGMI
>>422692706But with sloth 3 you're gonna struggle to get any wind riders out at all, right? I'm thinking screw all the fancy stuff and rely solely on peltasts and cardaces.
>>422693684If you ask me, sloth 3 Arco is a massive trap. You're kneecapping your whole nation for the sake of cap only labrats.
>>422694478Yes, I know it's pretty meme. Regardless, and I might be wrong, I still sense some off-hand viability.
>>422694478>>422694973It is very vulnerable to rushes, that is one of the big problems I haven't really thought of a solution to.
>>422694973Philosophers are your fourth best cap only commander.
>>422695116Just don't be rushed

You must be a jet black gorilla hillary clinton to use a guessable password as your admin password.
>all the other badmins coming out to pretend their last game's password wasn't totalniggerdeath
>>422676762This late in the game, how did you get into a situation where you have thousands of gold to spare even after pouring something like 30 PD into a whole bunch of provinces? The only period when I have that kind of cash to burn tends to be during/immediately after initial expansion when upkeep is nothing and fort construction has yet to catch up to the size of my territory, and this is an LA game where any spare cash can immediately be plowed into upgrading forts to the next level since making a fully upgraded fort is something like 1500-2000 gold. Did you just deliberately not expand your army to its maximum possible extent in order to keep piles of spare cash around? Take scales which leave you with gold but not enough resources to build the good troops? Something else?Anyway, sad to see you go AI as I was pretty excited about this war.
>>4227098641. Kinda just been chilling desu. I honestly didn't think you would have as many mages as you did. Been watching the fights between abysia and phlegra. Those have been fun to watch. Kudos to you for sticking it out though. Most players lose their cap and call it quits after that. Happy to see you decided to push through!
>>422710121Looks like we are going to have a 3-way fight for who is the superior japanese (they all use the same flag)
>having a guessable passwordAt this point a blacklist of guessable passwords might be a good thing because you niggers can't be trusted to do the most basic task.
Hypothetically, what's stopping elves or any other stealth nation from just appearing on my capital with enough troops to break the walls in one turn while my army is somewhere else?
>>422712754The bigger a stealthy army is, the easier it is to detect. An army that big would be found out as soon as it walks into a province with a single patroller or 10 PD
>>422713030Good thing nobody patrols random provinces or puts more than 6 pd then
>>422711907Someone attack Xibalba ffs. He just chilling in the game. Put some pressure on him dammit! Maybe after Ulm takes me out he'll make you sweat,
>>422712754elves pay too much elf tax to break walls without being a doomstack, they're much better at raiding all your provs with one ponyman and starving you out
>>422713190Even if the army is away a cap is usually filled with capmages. Good luck taking it gatecleaver thugs.
>>422713190>>422713231I was thinking Ulm would be pretty good at this in EA.
>>422713359they are, the downside is they're glass cannons with no magic, bad MR and no good sacreds so you can counter them in any number of ways
>>422713347Who said it needs to be thugs or that they're by themselves?
>>422712150yes. I have joined as LA Jomon.
>>422713753if the old guy wants it he'll get it back, nuthin personnel jogger
Koumakan and Kishin, we are already for you girls.
>>422712754Bad siege strength for the cost. However there's nothing stopping elf adjacents like birds from doing so
>>422713312Elf prostitute nation when?
>>422714440Birds are just elves but worse.>>422714481TNN.
>>422713208The rest of the world is at war. Just you and me haha
>>422713208>Someone attack XibalbaEveryone is fighting. Abysia and Phlegra are at war, C'tis is fighting Ulm and Ermor, Agartha and Marignon are on brat correction duty.
>>422714440I meant like you don't even know you're at war and then you lose your cap, with birds they at least have to show on the border one turn before unless they already border your cap circle. I did just notice that mairya warriors have stealth though, you just have to mass about a hundred of them...
Noob question: I've been doing some tendie theorycrafting and testing in SP. I noticed I always have a bunch of recruitment points to spare in my provinces, that means I could take turmoil scales without really making my build worse right?
>>422715249Yes, especially if you aren't also taking misfortune.
>>422714647Its like our own Armenian and Azerbaijan war.
>>422715516Nope, this way I can be L3 and have higher dom and paths.
Did people always dump turmoil when rec points weren't a thing?
>>422715825yes and they also went luck 3 for the money events
>>422715825>>422715923no, order/turmoil used to be the money scales worth 5% income and you only dumped turmoil if you were going luck 3, because luck and misfortune used to be much more potent
>>422715529It is closer to Russia vs poland. Explosive start by me only to get clogged down and not losing land LMAOO
>>422716993>Ukraine. I have no idea why I said fucking Poland.

These guys look pretty thuggable and affordable.
>>422726274There's two new ones iirc
>>422726452not a sacred, no magic paths, just a big army commander.
>>422726452I tried thugging sleepers before, they are not that good, you would quite a bit of gear before they can take good amount of pd.
>>422728732That's true. But perhaps with a fluffer for thugless human nations. >>422729702Hmm sad. The stats look decent to me. A brand and a vine shield with an etherial fluff?
>>422726452black servants are literally better and cheapernot anything to justify thugging sleepers unless you really want a thug and have literally no other options
>>422726452trying to thug sleepers is for peabrainsintellectuals notice they have a 15 prec 22 damage magic javelin with 30 ammo that scales with strength so you can lead your army with one, give him str buffs and tell him to target your enemy's nasty stuff
The CoE Witch does not get good enough units to justify the chance of failure to control them. That is all.

Gem income is a lot closer, 2nd is Khora and 5th is Elphame
Research, strong showing from both species of little people
Dominion, reminds me of TEATS
And finally army size, that's Val Morhen, Markgraf and Archonia in order
Also looking at the map I noticed something interesting:Archonia currently has 6 thrones and only needs 1 to win, Azarien it's over if you let him take it

Should I fort thrones even if they're right next to another fort?

How do I not murder my slave battery every single time?
>>422790201depends on the nation, what nation are you? but give them reinvigoration earthpower and regen as a start. bring more comm slaves or use less masters
>>422790406I was Arco using mystics for both slaves and masters. Would it work telling the masters to hang back after finishing their scripts?
>>422781901I never seen attack/def that high
>>422790685what age arco? if EA you can regen + enlarge the slaves with to give them 2 hp a round. MA you can do the same but you'll need to give a masters matrix to one of your nature mages or have some nature booster somehow. slave fatigue is based on the spells the master is casting, if masters are casting a spell slaves don't have a path in they take bonus fatigue but shouldn't be that troublesome with mystics as they all share paths. you probably just need more slaves

>>422797872Hmm I am completely unfamiliar with Sloops mod.
>>422798454The changes are in the OP, just look at the nation you wanna play.

He's gone for two of them the greedy fellowNow remember, you only win if you have all the thrones claimed at the LAST action in the turn order, that is after the ritual magic is cast, the ritual combats are decided, the assassinations, the regular combats...Khora I expect you to do the needful
What kind of province count per player are we looking to have in the BIG?
>>422805795BIG PROVINCES FOR THE BIG GAME
>>4228057951 province per player, all provinces connected.
>>422805702Tendie is F6S8 or so as well, we'll just have to see huh?
>>422806005I agree with this anon, except for the provinces connected part
>>422803704I tested expansion but it was only for fun because I was excited about the game and not for any practical purpose because no matter how many times I do it the actual game always ends up being way worse
>>422803601its possible they switched to ma caelum, ea arco, or ea xibalba, or some other new nation
>>422806336Murphy's law of dominions: you will never expand as well as during testing
I tried my build in SP but then again I am very bad at the game.By the way, what kind of indies do you face in the all ages mod? Or they randomly picked across the ages?
>>422806524The world is as if it were MA, at least in this version of the mod.
>>422803704I can expand intuitively now and only failspand when the map cucks me or I IRL Misf 3 and all my neighbors expand towards me

Oof, talk about a close fight. WP TC. That gift from heaven spam is annoying.
>>422806005I agree with this anon, but it should be 2 per player. Knife fight in phone booth not in coffin, ok?
>>422807643I still lost though? Dammit. That was my last attempt really. Enjoy fighting AI.
>>422807643Is this what the chinese call victory?
>>422808718they made off with a lot of manbat soup, fried toadman and imperial stew, so it's down as a strategic victory
>>422807643Ah holy fuck you had a ton of blood slaves.
Look at this though. Such a cool spell.
In the end we couldnt stop the skeleton hordes. Well Im going AI now. No recovery from losing all my geomancers. GG kind of. I expanded really well so that was a plus
>>422797872LA Agartha here, I'll resubmit my tendie in a bit.
2hu admin, i'm requesting an extension. Have to do overtime at job for a currently unknown delay, might not be back home in 6 hours' time, please be of understanding, shrine maiden is difficult job, thanks. Hopefully this is the last time i ask for any extension
>>422808293>>422809084>>422809304>>422809768Yeah, It was good. Your first 3 volleys had me scared that my mages were just gonna flee. Luckily you mages started to focus my chaff when they reached your front line. Anyways it has been fun if you do decide to go ai. Hope to play you again in other games! Hopefully as friends instead of enemies.
>>422806863because Subway is SHIT, ur gettin mappuke>>422811046BIGLY based, I hope EA guy shows up too, he's the last one.with you back in we're at 32 players, that is BIG

>>422814132>Patala is SyWho?
>>422815104Very Wet Ass Pussy?
I say we should all team up against the LA cucks because otherwise they will stomp everyone on their stupid research advantage.
Whenever I have an angel type unit in either Conquest of Elysium or Dominions I pretend that they are Inarius from the Diablo 4 trailer.
Patala is not Sy.
>BIG GAME has 33 playersBut can we make it go even further beyond?
>>422818290That's how many nations there are in EA. MA has 35, let's see if we can pass that.
>>422818290there are 80 posters in this threadseems like SOME PEOPLE arent pulling their weight
Never played One Age, should I be worried EA better mages or LA better ability to recruit mages and troops?
>>422818597a lot of those are extra IPs from anons posting from work and shops, most of the frequent users are in the game already>>422819605the biggest difference is most of LA gets extra com points and their caps take much longer to crack
Are we down?
>server goes down as soon as I go to do my turnsEpic
>>422813705I will, OMW home now. Honestly even 6 hour extension would've been too much.

If something has a deathshape do they go to it if they get hit by enough damage in the ritual phase or do they just get killed in the first shape?
>>422841580Yes, as long as the other shape has more hp than the first.

Nobody is returning my messages in BeatifulAndElegant. I cant take this lack of communication.
Mekone is just letting Therodos build tons of forts on the coast. Surely nothing will go wrong with this plan.
mapnuke only makes maps big enough for 30 players, do we want a mapnuke knife fight or a glorious vanilla random map?
>>422854981No knife fights that will result in numerous AIs in a matter of 5 turns.
>>422854981BIG province per player count
>>422854981I enjoying the janky unbalanced shit map in simply in a way
>>422854981dont tell me you dont know how to write your own mapnuke layout?
>>422854981Vanilla random here we go.
>>422854425Arco is that you?
>>422855397I don't know how to write my own mapnuke layoutit looks pretty easy now that I look at it but the people want the vanilla jank so vanilla jank it will be
>>422854425Same here, nobody wants to join my war
>>422854981>wants a massive game>doesn't know how to build a map to handle the players.Goddamnit, why are badmins such retards.
>>422855880atleast run it through nostart
>>422856057Shut up and enjoy the vanilla jank.
Since Hakurei hasn't confirmed it was definitely her that asked for an extension the forcehost is on hold until there's clarity. Whoever asked for an extension said that 6 hours is more than enough so 18 hours have been taken off the timer.
>>422856057Because you don't teach them you fucking imbecile, I'm genuinely seething at your post
>>422856057where's your BIG GAME suckathat's what I thought>>422856195I'll do this and make sure there's not too much water or underwater thrones
>>422856338>seethingLook everyone, we got ourselves a faggot. Do yourself a favor nigger, learn how to tie a noose, tie it up to a bridge and jump off. I know that it will be hard for someone who is so obviously mentally handicapped as you are but I promise you that once you do that sense of satisfaction you will get will stay with you for a lifetime. >>422857036... fuck, good point.
Is this the biggest game in /domg/ history?
>>422854981How many provinces would a 30+ player game need?
Here's my blessMajor Fire resistance (3f)Major Shock resistance (3a)Frost Weapons (4w)Strength of the Earth (3e)Major + Minor magic resistance (4s)Reforming Flesh + 4x Undying (10d)7x Resilience (7n)Blood Surge + 3 Strong Vitae (7b)good luck in the game anons!!
>>42285894915+ per player
Why not just pick one of the hundreds of maps already made instead of making a custom map?
>>422859402because unironically none of them were meant for this
>>422859295Damn there goes my plan. I wanted to make a map based on the world (ours) with every country being a province, maybe even splitting them into pieces if it was necessary. But that's a bit much, even 450 (30*15) would be hard to fit.
>>422859402Go ahead, show us all those 700 provinces maps.
>>422859402there's like 2 400 prov maps then 2 1000+ prov maps
>>422859471>>422859790>They forgot the 1k province greyhawk(?) map
Sir Blitz please fix the discord bot
>>422859478If total war modding taught me something is that you can have a 500 "provinces" in a single country if you want to.
Why are there people talking about making a 13.6 province per player map?
>>422861243Sure but it'd be more effort than I'm willing to put in right now. I'd need to properly research subregions and shit.
>>422860402I concur. Pls.
>two hours left on simply>Six turns not inBros?
>>422862221I'm doing my turn right now. Holy shit that was nerve wrecking.Good battle Ermor, will you keep playing?
>>422862434>tfw I couldn't see it because my scout didn't move for no reason
>>422862767Ermor, being the madlad he is, had 20 Augurs on astral akbar to try and kill all my S mages before the real battle, only my chad pretender survived and only because I had a bunch of fliers on Attack Rear because I expected a Winds of Death suicide attack. He also had a shitload of assassins, and managed to kill one of my Sun Padres with a very lucky Fires from afar.On the fort battle the ozzies just slaughtered everything and he couldn't do anything about it.Now I have to deal with a wild golem.
>>422863679Would a smasher let you deal with the golem?
>>422863886Nah don't worry, it's more a matter of catching it with enough ozzies rather than me being unable to deal with it.
>>422864335Oh in that case I'm gonna stop smasher production then
