Questions about rules, how things work, etc.
Tue Feb 28, 2017 2:17 am

  • I am currently in a game with a turtling player. He has 320 subs with a king, inspector, 2 DA, 3 sentries, 2 thiefs, 2 assasins, a lieutenant, a diplomat, a navigator and a pirate(these are the main specialists that can affect my attack, there are more). I am happy to leave him alone but he is constantly annoying my border, i would like to eliminate him, just so i dont need to place subs in our border to prevent a sudden attack. What should i do?

  • The pirate is really annoying. Without him you could have tried the tactic martyr + allied pirate (or allied martyr + your pirate) .

  • That's basically an impossible kill. You have to get really lucky.

    I trust the ever-living One,
    His wounds for me shall plead.
    I need no other argument,

    And that He died for me.

  • I feel you can secure an outpost on the other side of him, then use a smuggler+navigator+martyr to make a flying bomb. But that's for drastic measures only and is difficult to perfect

  • 1st Navi+Martyr --> his pirate will kill it
    2nd Navi+Martyr : you get there

    You "only" need these 4 specs... and he mustn't get another Pirate in the meantime.

    Try to spot his sleeping pattern : if your Navi+Martyr gets close enough by the time he wakes up, it might be too late even for a Pirate. That's kinda "meta" but whatever works, eh...

  • If you have several players that want to see him eliminated, see if you can get together more martyr-nav combos than he can hire pirates.
    Alternatively, if you have outposts all around him, you could outmaneuver his pirate with a martyr-nav-smuggler combo.
    Aside from that, eliminating him with brute force will probably take several thousand drillers.

    Dude can you teach me how to win 1st over 80%?
    As for the turtle, if you have the drillers/globals you can use an elder as long as he doesn't have a martyr. That's how I beat turtle turtling sheep.

    The standard WAAC strategy is to only play L1 games against people within their first 5 games, backstab and word around ruthlessly, and never play against the same people twice so they can't slander your name.

    If you can drop your standards like that, I guarantee you'll never get anything below a gold again.
    On behalf of all sane people, though, fuck you if you choose to go that route.
