Update 7-7-15: This is an old post now and was created in the early days of core crafting. I keep it up as a reminder of how far cores have developed in such a short time and how much further they will likely go. Soon no one under 2 Billion will be safe. Soon after that 3 B and so on. The mystery bonuses and set gear research tree turn a 6 piece core into a 8 or 9 piece core multiplied by 7! These numbers can get crazy! Unless you have something to boost your own troops or shield the losses could be devastating!
What a weekend we had in K94! It all started Friday night… I got a pm from a fellow R4 saying “Fight for the Wonder tonight. Heads up…” Great! Really so soon? We had talked about challenging the wonder but it was still in the planning stage. However, I guess we learned that DahaeFighters were planning to take it as well. As you may recall from previous posts. See Russians Take over. and Make Them an Offer. There has long been a battle in K94 with DF vs. basically the entire kingdom. Well, DF recently proposed rules for the kingdom as mentioned in “Make them an Offer” post. This created a friendly alliance with Wonka alliance. More on this in a moment,
The wonder opened Friday night and sure enough DF took the wonder. Dreaded alliance battled them all night for control but neither side prevailed. All night Friday through Saturday and into Sunday morning the battle for control of the Arid Labyrinth ensued.
However, DF continued to recapture wonder. Sunday morning we awoke to see that DF had nearly satisfied the 6 hours it takes to complete the capturing of the wonder. After some debate it was decided we would go to attempt to reset the wonder timer by rallying them out of it. With Mopar Lar as rally leader we set off. With our first attempt we prevailed in kicking DF out.
We prevailed at kicking DF out. Now what?! Are we going to try to hold this thing? After 5 hours it looked like we might actually hold the thing. However, Wonka player Kuwait Wulf at over 3 Billion power decides it’s time to “stop the war.” So Wonka starts a rally. We decide instantly we are not going to battle Wonka and DF for this thing. Our mission was to see that DF does not capture Wonder as their practices of destroying their own kingdom, zeroing kingdom players, stealing resources and forcing many to quit should not be given the honor of controlling such a symbol of strength and power.
So before rally can hit we decide to relinquish control.
Now, DF is furious! Their opportunity to retake the wonder was stolen by Wonka! Their supposed ally! So what do they do? They rally Wonka! DF prevails as a result of a traitorous move by a Wonka player who removes his reinforcements just as rally is striking. He then joins DF.
By this time it is well into Sunday night. Some of our guys have been following this battle for the wonder for nearly 72 hours, myself included. It looked as if DF would prevail. We were satisfied however as we had successfully battle for the wonder and witnessed the powerful alliance between Wonka and DF rip apart. We congratulated one another and I passed out from exhaustion.
The next morning I awake and log in to see some chatter in alliance chat from Mopar Lar saying Dreaded Red congratulated us for what we had done at the wonder. Dreaded Red is the alliance leader of Dreaded Alliance. For the first several months of Dahae this King ruled Dahae with order, respect, and honor. He was extremely powerful compared to the rest of the kingdom and could have chosen a more evil path. However, he believes in honor and respect.
Well, it turns out Dreaded Red returned to Dahae to vanquish DF from the Arid Labyrinth.
After it was all finished, the response from DF can only be summed up simply by their current alliance profile.
One of the most interesting aspects of this wonder battle were all the relics used. Take a look.
This weekend K94 was excited to make the Halloween Cup until we learned we would face K26 Shara. You may remember a xKuranx, the first Super Wonder king. Yup, he’s from Shara.
The alliance sO Shara Order made sure we all had a great time Sunday. I made a new friend named xZizoo who tipped me off on a 150M alliance member he currently had a beef with. So, seeing how we were newly found friends I obliged him in wrecking this rogue alliance member. Here is the result:
Haha, yup it had 43M T1 troops. We lost half our T4 rally. I mailed my new “friend” and he responds “sorry, I was nice and didn’t change the gear or I would have killed them all and taken hero.”
I broke my first rule in KvK KE “Never hit a guy that asks.”
Well, seeing how we are friends now xZizoo I thought I’d be nice and share your little surprise with the world. That little T1 monster won first prize in the Kvk event. I’m sure she can afford a name change. Cheers!
One additional nugget from the weekend. xZizoo visited our hive and attempted to rally one of our guys. Just as we were set to reinforce one of our members had the know how to check the Zizoo’s gear. He was rocking at least 5 relics perhaps 6. I asked what his stats were at the time:
Gears of Game of War. Well, got to go craft some more relics!
The crafting research tree will prove to be the start of a new age in Game Of War. Essentially, with proper materials and crafting a player can create items that will provide a tremendous boost to a rally or wicked defense against rallies.
As players from my alliance saw last night, gear can make a huge difference in rally power. A guy with standard legendary items such Apollo’s, Hector’s, or Leonidas’ pales in comparison to flame created items or other special event craftables. Now add to this the ability to add additional stats and gems to items with even greater stay boosts, it will be difficult to judge how much stat boost a player is packing.
Sure, a rally is 2.375m max. But look at that hero marching. Is he wearing research items or legendary relics?
The next chapter in Game of War is all about crafting gears of war! What are you wearing?
