I dislike merged hammers, I think they cause WAY too much imbalance on these birthday servers. This post isn't to knock them, its to celebrate them, for just a moment. This server has been incredibly boring, but last night Mean Girls and SMT finally had some excitement!
Anybody reading this that isn't familiar with birthday servers should know that there are no wonders here. We collect points by conquering regions. It involves a lot of chiefing, simming, catting fun all over the map. You are also able to merge your cavalry and infantry into a single hammer, making some top players occasionally unstoppable.
Last night in the far off region of Jerusalem, SMT player decided to merge this Roman hammer and hit a Mean Girl.
We estimate that hammer cost over 1800 gold! The player he hit had lost his hammer a mere 3 weeks ago. Unbeknownst to the SMT player, the Mean Girl had himself merged a hammer and immediately launched on the SMT players new hammer. And....chiefed it...9.5 hours later with this clear...
I'm pretty sure that was probably one of the most expensive hammer per hour ever built on one of these servers. So congrats to both sides for making this server a little more interesting.
