I'm glad for your guys's patience, I currently have a game in progress that's on 10 hours now..
Unfortunately not very much AI pictures yet but I forgot to include this two pictures from yesterday. So lets start with that.
I forgot about this two sweet photos.
I was inspecting the opposition that was facing my mercenary army. First one, plaguestalker army okay.
What's that second army under there, oh just a pioneer army. Disregard. ... WAT!
And now for the ones from today.
My scout was following this road to scout out this altar territory and promptly ran facefirst into a dragon at full speed.
PLEASE DON'T HURT ME JUST MAKE THIS VERY FAST DRAGON OH GOD PLEASE!
This screenshot showing the dragon chose my scout over a trio of lovely maidens. I suspect this particular dragon is female because aren't they supposed to kidnap maidens for steady supply of wannabe knights diet?
And then in my capital zone, there's a nest of powerful poisonous spiders that I didn't dare to attempt to remove until like later into the game like 5 hours after the beginning I didn't feel like losing my lvl 6 militia guys to them However I did learn that they do leave the nest when they sense a certain victory if they can reach me but they only pursue you for 1-2 hexes at most.
Middle note, This current game in progress has managed to amuse me tremendously. Why? Because lemme tell you..
First worldwide event: Plague struck my cities, so I chose to make communities for the sick and have them live separate from my healthy citizens.
Then second event: Undead uprising. yes that's right, there was skeletons everywhere.
Then third event: Eclipse. Yes that's right those skeletons got buffed two levels against early game militia armies I love this, it made the game more funnier for me. They was surprisingly tough. I had to apply battlefield tactics which involved kiting the skeletons until there wasn't any space anymore then MELEE!
Then fourth event: Blood Season, worldwide war just like that cuz everyone decide they want blood for the blood god.Although I didn't do anything other than pillage a couple of altarian's Outposts cuz he said i looked ugly to him in middle of blood season. I'm sure he regret it now. My scout pillaged his two outposts good!
And the fifth: Despite the increasingly civilized world, unmentionable horrors still lurk. The event where they basically spawned five armies of doom next to my first three cities. I manged to pull all my armies from borders and intercepted them just in time before they could raze my capitals. 2 turns. I bet that Amheh guy was gonna raze my capital on the third. So freaking close. Been long time since I had suspense like that. Last time was civ 4. So freaking long. Reminded me of how fun it was to take on that barbarian invasion in stone age and win with just one surviving warrior left who held off ten+ barbs and killed them all.
Anyways back to the monster+AI alliance i keep on mentioning.
I saw an marvelous unexpected test site which was just as perfect.
5 food 3 prod and 1 mana something? I have no clue what that blue symbol is for. Essences or something?
Back to that landsite, I decided to rip a page out of AI cheater handbook and settle a village on that exact tile, dragon be damned. I wanted to get attacked so I can accuse the AI of cheating. So I yolo'd my pioneer onto that Tile and set up a village successfuly, and it was completely undefended except for 4 militia something.
And to update the status of Atlar's resident dragon pet.
Its still alive and well and yes, he snacked on my second scout ><
But i did get some kind of indicator that it wasn't only snacking on my scout by seeing it's exp bar, its almost lvled! , apparently it killed LOTS of AI units walking on by.
Seeing that Exp bar be near full made em think maybe there really isn't any insidious cheating going on? Then I raged pretty hard. Because my Dragonic pet decided that my Village shall not live anymore and attacked it while Atlarian have a peaceful dragon that only snacks on the patrols. QQ I suspect bias QQ
Well screw this i lost the village anyways *presses autoresolve to get it over with and move onto declaring war onto atlarian to remove the city next to dragon in revenge. Wat.
So dragons is too weak? No wonder why they never attack AI villages, its because they will die in process Stardock need to buff drakes bad. They too weak to the point where they can be trolled by militia.
More pics coming in next post.
