New victory/defeat measure?

During our latest kvk KE my 14 trap house took nearly 200k T4 from a 500m power outlander.

The first March he sent had 375k T4 with no hero. I started to burn at no surprise. However upon looking at the battle report I lost much less power than he. I always thought victory or defeat was based on power loss raw number. I’m wondering now if it is by percentage of total power loss?

Below are the battle reports. I’m on the left.



KvK Recap k100

Over the weekend, Mz matched us up with our equal in terms of kingdom age. It proved to be a bloody encounter. I lost more tier 4 troops this weekend than all kvk events of the last combined.

A couple hundred thousand were the result of errors made from sleep deprivation and carelessness but most were from rallying 200m reinforced outlanders.

At first, we had a problem getting our rallies to actually hit them without shielding first. Later, it was taking heavy losses when they actually did.

We did have some tremendous luck with one outlander who apparently rallied his hero before our rally hit him for some reason.



In the end, we lost the kvk. K100 is another dead kingdom, something we see far too often these days. The top alliances of the kingdom destroy their own kingdom so there are basically zero points available to outlanders. This is one strategy that can be used, but thankfully k94 has not resorted to it yet. Some k94 alliances have tried to destroy all opposing in this fashion, but so far we have quelled them.

Our alliance is working on new strategies for the next kvk. They include less offensive measures and more defensive tactics, but enticing the opposition to attack seems to be the key to victory.

More Tier 2 Fun “Rope a Dope”

Today during our kvk kill event I ported my SH 14, 8M, T2 to a hive and also ported my main 134M T4 strat SH 21 over just out of screenshot view of the SH14. I immediately sent 200k T4 reinforcements to the SH14 and waited. It took about an hour of scouting and sending some marches out into the enemy hive to get a couple curious outlanders to attack. Below are reports of the results:





I was able to kill nearly 200k T3 without a single troop killed in my stronghold or hospital beds filled.

T2 vs. T3

Tonight I embarked on a new journey. My Strat T2/SH 14 set sail to the outlander’s kingdom. Below are reports from my first two defenses:





I was victorious in both defenses against T3/Strat T3 marches.

Prospects are looking very good! 5m points and only around 500k were needed for gold in the 4 day KvK kill event. With three days to go I imagine I’ll score quite a bit more.

I’ll post more details at the conclusion of the event.
