THE TROUBLE WITH TRIBLESS

[11:24] <Nuclearmonkee> haha diabl0 is loving vanheim again
[11:24] <RockyB> ewww
[11:24] <Nuclearmonkee> rip everyone in earules
[11:24] <GONwork> brb deleting my signup
[11:24] <Nuclearmonkee> don't worry we will be dead fast
[11:25] <GONwork> i did this once i dont wamna do it again
[11:25] <GONwork> no i was dead last
[11:25] <GONwork> it sucked
[11:25] <Nuclearmonkee> that is the worst option
[11:25] <yhdw> how does one yomi
[11:26] <Nuclearmonkee> you recruit fire demons or ice dmeons and rush someone with chaos power
[11:26] <GONwork> you get zergrushed by comedy tribless van

"What is Tribless Van" you are asking, like you are starting some sort of Ayn Rand monologue. Is it a van without a tribe? No. It is EA Vanheim with a Triple Bless. You've heard about a single bless, and a double bless if you tank your scales some. But triple bless? Like shaving razor execs diabl0 was not satisfied and put a N9/D9/B9 bless on his sacreds.

How bad is that? Well nature gives the unit +hp and regeneration, death gives them bonus damage on hit and prevents units from dying when going into negative hp (Which they can regen) and blood 9 gives them injury mirror so you are injured as bad as you injured them if you fail a MR check. His sacred units are vanhere.

They dual wield, have glamour/mirror image, are stealthy and cost about 30 loving gold.

EDIT:

Diabl0658 posted:

Also you got my bless wrong, I had earth 9, not death 9. Earth 9 gives my guys +5 protection and +4 reinvigoration, basically their armor is better and they dont get tired as quickly

The gimmick of EARULES is that it is EA nations in a MA setting, which basically means less gems but more gold. Basically the chatter was I HOPE YOU LIKE VANHERE. In the middle of all this I was playing Agartha with this cool rad dragon as my awake expander:



Expansion went super smoothly. Waaay too smoothly.

Because half the world was kicking off a brutal war in lieu of expansion. Van hit Lanka, then Hinnom (Nuclearmonkee) hit Maverni to pay for his own attack on Van. Yomi joins in against Van too, later. Mictlan allies with Van in this war earning the title 'hitler retard betrayer' from some and Hinnom and Lanka turn harshly on Mictlan for this. Noone bothers me and I snap up a bunch of indies. People do try to draft me to fight the Vanhere menace however:

quote:

<Nuclearmonkee> everyone who fights him gets rolled because vanhere are insane
<Nuclearmonkee> we are just trying to smother him by pure volume of crap
<Nuclearmonkee> olms and pale ones are like the only thing that can hands down beat him
<Nuclearmonkee> which is why lanka is bugging you probably
<Ramc> So, what, you're snaking his poo poo from [other direction] while Lanka gets it?
<Nuclearmonkee> we are both fighting him on the northeast and mostly losing
<Nuclearmonkee> northwest rather
<Ramc> Anyway, there is like one visible Vanheim prov to me, between the lake, throne and mictlan
<Nuclearmonkee> you don't even have to really fight the war. but if you walk about 30 olms and 100ish assorted random pale ones or similar gold value in trogs you can just walk to his cap
<Nuclearmonkee> which stops the manufacture of vanhere

My direct path to Van was blocked by a cap throne, and I was still expanding, so I continued to demure and build up and expand. I lent some gems to Yomi, who seemed to be getting the worst of what I could see. Hinnom continued to war with both Maverni and Van until:

EARULES, PART TWO: I VAN SO FAR AWAY

Now I had been in contact with the player of Van a little bit in which we mostly tried to humblebrag our counters to each other.

quote:

<Ramc> And honestly the way we are set up, border-wise, you'd be able to tell if I was planning to.
<Diabl0658> and you wouldnt be able to tell anything
<Diabl0658> due to glamour, stealth, and cloud trapezing
<Ramc> Yes.
<Ramc> the most GLAM of invasions.
<Diabl0658|2> its me right now because im stronger than everyone else at this early stage in the game
<Ramc> (I'd probably feel more threatened by your existence if I didn't have Olms.)
<Diabl0658|2> how reliably will your olms target my vanheres over my serf warriors?
<Diabl0658|2> or instead of serf warriors lets say indi crossbowmen
<Diabl0658|2> because we are actually in MA
<Ramc> I'm sure as reliably as the AI does anything.
<Ramc> 'oh wait'
<Diabl0658|2> and of course, doing that while crossbows shoot your olms
<Ramc> At any rate, I'm mostly okay at leaving you three to your fight for now.

(I would go on to get the throne of Air which would give my blessed olms Air Shield at least)

By the time he went AI Hinnom had some doomsaying

quote:

<Nuclearmonkee> you were the only nation that could have rushed him
<Nuclearmonkee> probably too late now
<Ramc> gloomy!
:ohdear:

Anyway, not long after Hinnom AI's I have built up a massive death ball of olms, pale ones, magma children, earth elementals, living mercuries, mages and my Pretender and start plowing north toward Van's cap. Meanwhile:

[04:48] <Roland_Jones> EARULES seems to be going well.
:raise:

The response to my invasion is immediate and terrifying as four or five Vanjarls cloud trapeze onto random provinces in my empire and begin to rampage around, taking territory. I try to chase or trap them to little avail. Even worse, because Vanheim is at war with AI Yomi, AI Yomi sees these new Van provs ripe for the taking and goes after them, causing us to bump several times and set the AI to be aggressive at me as well. He claims it wasn't on purpose but I will remember this trick nonetheless. :colbert:

My death stack makes it to to the Van capital and because it is 1- Huge and 2- Full of Pale Ones with seige bonuses, seiges it down instantly. I rush it immediately and in a brutal, but foregone battle take the cap.

[19:12] <Diabl0658> with 80 mind blasters and also a bunch of magma childs
[19:12] <Diabl0658> after instantly breaching the gates
[19:12] <Diabl0658> now all my mages are dead
[19:15] <Diabl0658> he also took all my feather quills
[19:16] <samog> good
:hellyeah:

It was more like 96 olms. :colbert:

His imprisoned god wakes up the next turn and the E9N9B9S1 monolith is taken down by PD. The Vanjarls rampaging around my territory lose their human cunning and as AI are much more easily cornered and put down. Yomi is pushed back.

This leaves Lanka, Machaka and I, flailing for victory amidst a sea of AIs. This makes things a lot simpler honestly, and I rush for the last thrones I need. I send my PG south to go for the throne in the Yomi cap circle, and have a separate death ball go for the ivy men throne in Van's cap circle. I take them both simply enough.

[17:59] <Slaan> ????????

Machaka had started to harrass my east off and on since Van fell, with skelespamming hyenas preparing the way for god knows what is to come with all that research. I start to make some misc anti-skeleton squads but mostly just have them patrol my forts and thrones.

I claim the two thrones and send another ball toward the throne in Hinnom's cap circle all the while getting really ominous messages and seeing Machaka put up Mother Oak and Stellar Focus. What are they going to do with all those nature and astral gems!? Was I winning or not? :confuoot:

[08:27] <GenericOverusedName> .tell ramc well played

:boom: OR NOT :boom:

It turns out GON wasn't aware how close I was to victory, and I spent the last 4 turns living in terror of some Dom4 bullshit. Faery trodding in death armies or teleporting mind control golems or cloaked death vampire lions poo poo I don't know there is a lot going on here. Or was. Now No Two People Are Not on Fire is the Pantokrator and there are going to be some changes around here!

The final map:

Lanka has a weird shape going here and Vanheim actually got domkilled on the final turn.


The province graph. You can see my constant expansion and my dip when Van started hitting me, then my recovery as I cored out Van from its heart.


I just kept seizing and making forts.


I was absurdly wealthy it felt, and the graphs proved it. An early expansion is super important. Also you can tell the point where Van actually had no forts at all. I call it the 'panto-crater'.


I always felt sort of starved for any gems but earth. Once I took the van cap my air gem income was also up there, but I only had some A2 mages from a throne to use it with. Mostly I made quills and birds with them. My E, W and F income basically went to a constant stream of earth elementals, living mercuries and magma children. I never got any globals up, either due to lack of income or insufficient caster skill.


Well... uh... this was probably a bad sign. A lot of my mages ended up leading my magical armies of magical summons and near the end getting researchers outside of having auto-hired sages at the Throne of Knowledge wasn't a big deal because I was rushing the thrones. Machaka had a huge research lead from lightless lanterns and being largely unbothered. But I won anyway. NERDS.


I kept making temples and taking thrones I guess. Also my PG had Dom9 and was constantly on the move, spreading that dominion as he rampaged.


I spent a lot of time making dudes.


It was my first game of Dominions 4 with real people.

I won it.

I did check after and I had a site that revealed 'mundane graphs' that mostly showed me I was crazy rich. It didn't show research so I assumed that was the bad one.

If it makes you feel any better I am getting dog piled in the actual newbie game; when I was asking in irc about the rush-ability of nearby nations (before I knew the answer to that was 'with w9 white centaurs just rush whoever) the Caelum player saw me asking about his nation's vulnerability and made me out to be the tri-bless Van of the game probably. I ended up setting on C'tis to attack but by then he was already gearing for f o r e v e r w a r on my unholy nation.

White centaurs are good, but not 4 on 1 dogpile good.

trapped in custom title factory, send help

Spoiler alert: Baudin loses the war to skeletons, then takes over Fleurs's nation which I was at war with at the time, and loses the war to skeletons. The world is skeletons.

If it makes you feel any better I am getting dog piled in the actual newbie game; when I was asking in irc about the rush-ability of nearby nations (before I knew the answer to that was 'with w9 white centaurs just rush whoever) the Caelum player saw me asking about his nation's vulnerability and made me out to be the tri-bless Van of the game probably. I ended up setting on C'tis to attack but by then he was already gearing for f o r e v e r w a r on my unholy nation.

White centaurs are good, but not 4 on 1 dogpile good.

I just want to mention that this game is still going on. It is down to 4 players and I am one of them still.

He does 100% better job than the original LPer so I agree.

It killed most of its own army casting Rain of Stones to clear out my 20 pts of PD while all my armies stayed inside because I had no idea what his trick was going to be.

He has no additional commanders, no astral, and is in my white candles with disease standing over a claimed throne, temple and my prophet and a ton of preaching dudes.
