I have ported this thread over from the old forums.

Thunder said:
There was a time where only darkness was around. Thousands of Lords trusted the way of archery. Only one of those knew, that the truth is in magic. Now the day has come, where this one rises. He reached his goal and from now on those archer loving lords will see, that their archers only have one destiny: They will hide in the woods, see a flashing light, which vaporised the whole army and then will follow one thing: Thunder
At this time they will realize, that there is no escape and no magic in setting an arrow on fire. They pray to there nature gods and Lela will now know, that the lost of her father was nothing compared to what will follow.
Justice has to be done and now its time.

Thunder, I commend thee!
Thunder said:
But after a while those powerful mages felt a bit lonely. They ask me as their warlord to give them a male counterpart. Someone which can handle those women and maybe can carry them into the battle. Unfortunately they didn't learned to teleport till now.

So it was a great pleasure for me to fulfill their wish. I proudly presence:

Jesper said:
Beware, there are now some archers to hunt your mages... ;-)

image_67.jpg
Thunder said:
Your hunt will be unsuccessful, because its a 3 vs 1 and you don't feel the magic I do


image_68.jpg
Jesper said:
Hmm, 3 vs. 1. Not bad! I salute you.

And upgrading all the legendary equipment is also really costly. Actually I might run out of gold before I've done so. I'm already down to 40K gold. What is the maximum level? 11?
Furlord said:
Yup 11 is max level.
Thunder said:
It's about 60-80k to bring 3 5* equipment to lvl 11. Not that much to be honest. Even after the last patch, where you get more gold per battle then before.
Jesper said:
I'm currently struggling to upgrade my second batch of legendary items. For me gold really is an issue.
Thunder said:
I didn't say it's cheap

As you can see I dropped from over 500k before first set to 200k after updating 4 4* sets. Even if I fought a lot of battles
But from now on balance will get higher, because only one set left in my core army.

Jesper said:
You really have a nice army, Thunder. I lost two regiments when I fought it yesterday.
BTW did you notice that you now can inspect other player's army setup in the (all time) leaderboard? It's quite neat even though still a bit basic.
Thunder said:
Thanks. " lost regiments doesn't sound much, but for an ai controlled battle it is
Yeah I knew it. It's not helpful at all for me. Score is a "roll the dice" IMHO.
Thunder said:
It's done. Complete 4 Star army. The big question is: What is next? Hunting for 5* ? This stage doesn't have equip so it will only boost stats...

image_87.jpg
Jesper said:
Congratulations! I now have three regiments with 4 stars. How far are you from having your first 5 star regiment?
Thunder said:
It's done, when it's done
jplyn said:
I have all my principal soldiers at 250 and legendary .... no matter how I fight all the enemies are stronger than me.. I play , I loose , I have to wait no advancement, cannot make money to even fight brigands island, you better fix or you will loose a lot of players. I will be waiting a change , because it is no use for me to play the way it is set up.
KumaLibre said:
Hello jplyn,

I am really sorry to hear that and can totally understand your frustration here.
We are constantly rebalancing the game and investigating your account would be really helpful to understand the current issues and improve the situation.
Could you please send me your username or userID via PM?
If you don't remember any of them, just send me a screenshot of your settings menu. And I'll figure it out.

Thanks again for the feedback
Thunder said:
I'm sorry for your problem, but where is the connection to this threat? Did I cause this problem? I don't think so. Please move this post including the answer to a separate thread.
Thunder said:
So back to topic Thunder celebrates himself
It's done. Bow for the warlord of mages

Korayl said:
Thunder: do you find the 60K crit bonus damage is a decent amount at those levels? Does your regular attack 1 shot a stack (of equal strength to yours), or do you need a crit to do it, or does a crit not even 1 shot the stack? Or does the bonus damage barely make a dent? I mean, your mages have 891 HP, and I can only guess what your guardians have--and ignoring mitigations, if the bonus killed an extra 60 or so units...is that enough to make it worth while?

Personally, I'd prefer a weapon with lower crit chance for mages (and higher offense rating) since nova can't crit and that's the main reason why they're in my army. That being said, if crit was really useful when it happened at current damage levels, then yeah, I'd change my mind on it, since I'm also single target dpsing with them as well.

Also, just noticed the 5* on your mages. Damn
Korayl said:
Okay, yeah - ignoring mitigations, a stack of 390 mages (as pictured above) attacking 390 guardians (as pictured with 2323 health) would do 406224 damage after the 40% bonus is taken into account, leaving 500000 HP remaining, or about 55% of the stack. A crit would take out another 7% or so...so yeah, about half a stack in one shot. Ignoring the effects of offense ratings and magical defense.

That being said, I don't think those weapons are fully upgraded
It'd be interesting to see what a fully upgraded weapon crit would do in terms of damage
Thunder said:
I'll make a quiz for you: Do you see a green plus at the forge? What could that mean? (Hint: It's not photoshopped) What a sacrilege to think my well loved first mages don't have fully updated equip.
No weapon gives you offensive skills. You get this stat only from your banner. Choices you have at weapon slot: high chance lower crit dmg or other way round. You can't ignore the offensive and defensive stats in your calculation. The mages hit with 16,4k offence vs 3,4k magic defence at the guards. I think these numbers tell its own tale
Jesper said:
Damn, I knew why I invested in archers. ;-)

Congratulations, Thunder. I salute you. Well done!
Jesper said:
Oh boy, I just run into this monster Mage. My 4* archers now only kill 50% of them in an attack. This is now quite deadly.
Korayl said:
So I just noticed that it's possible to get units to level 19, but upgrades only continue to level 16. Working as intended?
Jesper said:
I would say it's more (the current) end of content. If too many regiments have been fully upgraded, the devs will probably deliver more content.
Thunder said:
After I got my first 5* and being disappointed, I decided to have a wider range to choose from. Disappointment was caused by no equip and no advantage if you go against 3* units. So it's all in all not a big deal sadly.

image_121.png image_122.png
Right now, I take the pain in the ass way and try to make the ogers competitive. It isn't funny tbh.
Thunder said:
And here they are:

image_187.png
What will be next? Hm.... we will see. The motivation to push them to 4* isn't really high. My target isn't to promote every new unit, so I think I'll improve some of the core regiments.

KumaLibre Please take a look at this post and find out, why it isn't mentioned as change / updated in the sub forum.

Test for updating the subsection.

€ Hm this one worked correctly. Crazy behaviour.
Thunder said:
And here they are. Next goal: Don't know.

Anton Amby said:
That is one strong mage O.O
Korayl said:
I believe that's *2* strong mages :p
Anton Amby said:
Yea, those must deal a LOT of damage!!

I haven't even gotten a 3 star unit yet..
Jin said:
Just wonder if anyone defeat Thunder in PvP without losing any regiment or it's only happen in La La Land?
Jesper said:
It depends a lot on the map but I can usually beat his army without taking losses. I think other players with an army score of 25M or higher can do the same. :)
Jin said:
There is a ray of hope for us wannabes then. LOL.
Jin said:
Hello Thunder. Good to see you are online. I was wondering where you are as I didn't see you in this season tournament.
Thunder said:
Thanks. After so many month of playing every 33min or 2h, I needed a break. In addition I'm unable to win a season and this won't chance imho. So another motivation-killer. Now I'm enjoying my rl and play from time to time.
Thunder said:
Here is my newest promoted regiment

image_254.jpg
Jin said:
Very nice. Please keep updating. Some of us don't just play for trophies but rather building an ultimate armies.

I'm always tried to win with the least losses possible while trying out new tactic and armies combination.
Anton Amby said:
Sooo, did you get any Mythical Items since the last update? I'm curious about how they look
Thunder said:
Till now I only got 2 banners, which are sadly not shown any more.

image_299.jpg
Jin said:
Is the banner with offense only better than the one that come with 3% critical chance?

Do you wait for better banner, armour and weapon or you use the one you get?
Thunder said:
Well next level items are always better, then the lower version
As you can see, I'm using it right now. I'm waiting for a lot of mystical stuff, such as staffs and armour. When I get my fingers on any usable 5* item, you can bet, that I'll use it, even if the upgrade cost are insane high.
Jin said:
That means I've to hoard gold like crazy to make sure I can upgrade to a better item if and when it's available despite already have an inferior fully upgraded one.
Thunder said:
And now I'm only missing one slot to have a full 5* army. Banner is still lvl 1 so offence will increase a lot in the next few days


image_310.jpg
Anton Amby said:
I'm also really curious about how they look on the unit

That's why is was asking :p
Jesper said:
Yeah, Thunder! You are now a 4 skull battle for me! ;-)
Thunder said:
Now two facts are clear: First the hunt is over
Second you have a chance to win season. I've to be happy, when I reach the top 20... Well however I think it will be the last season for me.
Thunder said:
Now I reached my long time goal. No matter what the armyscore says: I definitely have the strongest 5 regiment army


image_376.jpg
Jesper said:
Damn, now your Lela is stronger than mine. That can't be. That's not ... right!
Thunder said:
Banner isn't upgraded still lvl 1 so some hidden potential
Thunder said:
And here Anton Amby you see two 5* weapons. twisted 180 degrees caused by a sleeping dev


image_377.jpg image_378.jpg image_379.jpg
Jin said:
5x5* regiments. WOOHOO!!
Thunder said:
Thanks Jin At least one person saw the milestone
Erdeas said:
Wow Couple Mages!!
damn so strong resigment...

Lylien said:
Congratulations!
Pls don't forget to show me their detail parameters(including equipment) , when you could get convenient.
And do you still remember how many offence/ pd/md are added when regiments promote to 5star?
Thunder said:
Some luck with free smuggler + good starting value, have made this possible.

image_423.png
Lylien said:
Congratulations for 6th!
Jin said:
Number 6. Wow!!!
Jesper said:
Congratulations!
Erdeas said:
Damn' it its so cool bro! nice all done
Thunder said:
Here are my least promoted regiments:

image_486.png image_487.png
Lylien said:
Got parameter. :)
Jin said:
I'll take both of regiments into my army with no hesitation.
Jesper said:
So, I now also have 6 5* regiments, just in time to finish Bi99 soon. :)

Behold this beauty:

image_542.jpg
Jin said:
Good luck, Jesper.
Anton Amby said:
I want a MF like that
SirKillalot said:
Nice going, Jesper, seems you will be the first player to clear brigand island. Got my second 5star unit today, Caenfort archers. What a feeling to be able to kill a tank with one arrow from far away
Thunder said:
I like it more to look at mine
f2p strikes again

image_561.png image_562.jpg
Next will be Guards 5* Not much missing
Thunder said:
Wings change with a new amour. Black is 2* or 3*
Anton Amby said:
I'm pretty sure it's not with epic or rare armor...
Thunder said:
Amour was black with rare. So no black wings at all.
Jesper said:
But then again: Look at this! :)

image_563.jpg image_564.jpg image_565.jpg
Thunder said:
Congrats! Even if I can't read anything in your screens
Lylien said:
I can't read anything in your screens either. :p
Jesper said:
Yes, I see. Upload from Apple devices just suck.

The point is: The final battle was not as hard as expected. Jerrika just has 800K hit points and it should not a problem for a 5* army to win this. @Wilhelm had promised a real challenge, but ... err ... not really. But the road has be long to get there.

Congrats to @wertuiop for having beaten BI99, too!

I may not be anywhere near you guys, but after about 6 weeks of playing (and no money besides the initial diamond deal), I just hit a couple by milestones; 1000K AP and unlocking all the different armies. Next goals will be clearing the map (I have a couple desert areas left and 1 trut battle and 10 two skull battles left, I don't think I'll count BI on that though) and maybe 1st in a pvp season; my leads slowly decreasing, but I might be able to hold on. I'm also about half way to my first 4* unit.

image_578.png image_579.jpg
Jin said:
Hello @Svetkavitsa.

No offence but I think you've over upgrade your army a bit. If I were you, I would stop increasing the AP if you want to have a chance at being the ONE.
Svetkavitsa said:
I may have to settle for top 3 , I never really liked the idea of TH, but my upgrade strategy seemed to be working for both AP and TH so I went for it. My biggest issue is getting enough 3-4* battles with gear swapping. My current upgrade path is to upgrade my top 3 units completely (increasing the distance between them and my lower units), and getting as many units even with my 4th and 5th places as I can (except Grubak, no one likes him).
Jin said:
Svetkavitsa, if you only upgrade your top 3 regiments, you're gonna end up with a very unbalance army. I think you may find it hard to win PvP and PvE battles.
Thunder said:
And here they are. Next will be the oger
Jin said:
Crikey! Thunder. You're really pumping them out!!
Anton Amby said:
And I'm just sitting here with a single 5*....

Also, did anyone else notice the guy with ten 5 star regiments and nine 4*?? Did he cheat or is he a billionaire? (he's at 15439 AP atm)
Thunder said:
Anton Amby Think he invested a trillion

K26 Can agree that #1 in power is legit?
Korayl said:
It's worth noting that at one point Thunder had ~12000 gems and ~500000 gold. I bet you I could make some pretty serious progress on MY armies if I could buy 6 imperial ships and fully upgrade 6+ 5* items before my gold ran out...(given the 6 imperial ships will give lots of gold and you'll also have a LOT of time to kill while all those items upgrade, 8 hours at a time)
Thunder said:
So what's the point? That I played and saved enough to get that amount? If you calculate a bit you will see, that 6 ships is nothing compared to the last patch shard progress. Do I have to excuse for my intensive playing? I don't think so. If you think you can follow my route (without any RM beside the 30day contract), feel free to make your own thread to celebrate you
Korayl said:
well, if we're talking about what's the point....what is the point of this entire thread? It's 4 pages of posts when the subject line conveyed everything that needed to be said on the topic.
Thunder said:
As I said before: Thunder celebrates himself. And to show my progress. If you don't like it, just don't visit this one. Others seem to be interested.
Thunder said:
This would probably be my last post in this threat. Ogers only missing 54 shards, but that's not the point. After I inspired a lot of warlords to keep up with my army, I came to the conclusion, that after more than 2 months of no new challenge and tbh not the same thrill as it was before, I'll quit. If you have questions, I'll still look in the forum and have an open ear for you and your needs. Don’t hesitate to PM me or @ me in a comment.
Last but not least: I wanna thank the comm for making this game as awesome as it was. Special THX to: Jin, Anton Amby and o.c Jesper ,who was a valuable arch enemy and will inherit my crown


Sincerely yours the ONE and ONLY THUNDER
Jesper said:
Thunder, since you overtook me you have been the #1 Warlord and dominated the game for the last year, rightfully so.

Your army inspired me to build army the way I did. And you helped countless others here in the forum. Thanks for all you have done!

I can understand your decision. All the best for the future, Thunder.
Anton Amby said:
Thanks for being here, and for helping us becoming true Warlords!

Thunder Quick question: If the developers ever get's back to this game and start developing new stuff, would you get back to it? :p

I wish you the best of luck in your future. ^^
Jin said:
Hello Thunder. NOT A GOOD DAY in the history of Warlord but GOOD LUCK and all the best wishes.

Your contagious passion for the game have inspired me to be a better warlord and enjoy the game beyond what it was designed to do.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
Lylien said:
Good Luck!
Don't forget to tell us when you find another good SLG game.
