Battle of Epidaurum - 2nd Edition

  • Funny - the last time we played a beta-server we fought in Epidaurum as well. And at that point it was still allowed to merge catapults and rams and the TG officials didn't listen when we told them that this is a very bad idea. So we had to prove it ourselves why it is a bad idea, you all profit from our engagement some years ago. I hope you are sufficiently grateful :p
    Here is the old thread, interesting to back-read: Battle of Epidaurum
    But enough reminiscing!

    ITA
    And the whole ITA ally is in Epi. But it was only 1 hun with his 3 defenders. Although he caused significant trouble in the beginning.


    Spiderman was a robber of the week account and was 1 field away from Einsamer Wolf - one of our guys. He harassed him for a few days quite successfully but then we managed to lure him into a trap:
    badae62783424f4109def93aa350c6d9


    One week later we started a counter-offensive against ITA:
    fb5f042d502b9b973f0e049d04562b27


    And it ended with our Egyptian chiefing the 350 hun village directly next to him:

    The inhabitants of 11 Werwolf decided to join your empire.




    At the same time not far away another team (this time Keyboardwarrior and Onix) dealt with one of his defenders:
    Well, since his 15c is already zeroed, I cannot show you any reports. Mhh... It was a 150% 15c that shared oases with a SC 150% 15c. Soo... it had to go, obviously. Directly on the Epi/Apo border as well..





    Cheers!
    Yeah, as you can see, Cheers want that small boots badly. Very badly. They even made a fusion with.. I already forgot, a whole other 60 member alliance to get more % in Epi. Buuut until now all their efforts are futile. And since they already have 52 members in that region there will be a hard limit soon.


    Since we are not that good with building pop ourselves we decided to do something we can do better: Decrease the opponents pop.


    We started some days ago and it already showed some effect because since we started catapulting they did not increase their influence in that region. I guess they hastily started building troops...? Because when Supernettertyp (totallyniceguy) attacked them he did not find any resistance at all. Neither did Allesfresser (omnivore) who started 2 days later. Glücksbärchen (Care Bears) did mange to kill some though. I thought a long time how to present the attacks and decided I just organize them after the accounts who were attacked and not who did the attacking. Probably more overseeable that way (hope that word exists in English).

    Bot123:
    He attacked Glücksbärchis:
    Travian com83


    Glücksbärchis followed him home:
    Travian com83
    (wow, so many catapults!)



    And then at night Glücksbärchis attacked him for real:


    City Wall damaged from level 11 to level 10
    Palace destroyed
    Cropland destroyed
    Cropland destroyed
    Cropland destroyed



    Travian com83
    (roughly 95% defense against inf although they knew that he was only attacking with steppe)

    And I guess Bot123 wanted to revenge himself, or he wanted to sacrifice his hammer because he had no crop-production left and it'd have starved anyway, regardless of the motive that's the outcome of their counter-attack:

    Busy weekend. I hope this encourages people or whole other alliances to show what they do in their contested regions.

  • Awesome ... always love a good fight. One of the reason in love region based servers. No where to hide and sim...


    Never played a slow server before so hating that aspect of it, but impressed at the amount of offensive pressure SC have managed to put onto other alliances so quickly. Good job.


    Now let's hope for some real retaliation.

  • You all look the same to me, whats the difference between you and them? lol

    Hm... have a short look at the above reports, then you should easily figure out :)



    "Between impulse and action there is a realm of good taste begging for your acquaintance."
    (the doctor, voy4/25)

  • No, that's what you did already, just used the word bot instead of noob to make it not that obvious ;)

    Bots and noobs isnt the same thing, bots are logical while noobs settle in my region and believe they will survive. <3

    cash me ousside, how bout dat?

  • OMG - i forgot...


    This is a server for simer and golder - they are here not the noobs, who they are on normal servers... Sorry!


    Phalanx - Turandot - Morgan Freeman -
    No Pasarán! - Tatum Fortuna -
    Luckmushrooms - CatDog

  • If you feel better telling everyone "we are only getting catapulted because they are using sooo much more gold than we do!!" feel free to think that.


    I've seen alliances abusing gold and I know how far away we are from that consumption. And as someone who knows how much persuasion it took for me to convince 2 of our 3 huns to buy they steppe-weapon and one still doesn't have it... well.. it makes me perceive your excuse in a very unfavorable way.
