  • Well.... your elder most likely stopped your assassin from killing the queen.

  • Wait I hired elder because his elder was preventing me to kill his queen.So if he moves elder away I cannot kill him ? It makes no sense.I should kill him in either way.Especialy when he moved away his elder it should work even better.

  • Whenever you both had elders in combat they cancelled each other out so all specialists still took effect. Once he moved it away there was no elder to cancel so your elder stopped all of the specialists.

  • Elders work like this:
    When one elder is in a battle, all other specialists are rendered useless (except martyrs). When two elders are in a battle, they cancel each other out and all specialists become useful again.

    Let's apply that to your game:
    You sent a navi-assassin-elder to an outpost with an elder-queen. In your battle preview, th elders from yours and his side cancelled each other out, causing your assassin to do it's job. However, when he moved his elder away, yours was the only one left and therefore it rendered all other specs useless. The assassin didn't do its job, and they got captured.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Solution: send in the martyrs!

    Elders are very good if you have millions of drillers but the other guy has a double agent or something that can instantly stop your attack for stupid reasons
