View Full Version : 51 Renown : 1 Battle -- and I didn't lift a finger

I just logged back in after a few days away.

I started getting a lot of connection problems and lag straight away, which made me sad. Never fear, I shall charge into battle anyway. Network connection be damned!

Unfortunately for me, it was not to be...

I have a team with 63 v a guy with a team of 65. This should be tough, I think to myself. I get into battle and the fellow surrenders before we even setup our pieces. Too laggy, perhaps.

So no game for me, the end battle sequence loads and I watch as achievement after achievement are stacked on to this one game I didn't even get to play. And I begin to laugh... this is crazy, I say to myself. After the sound of clinking renown dies away, and I regain some composure, the grand tally tells me I have netted a cool 51 renown. For 1 battle. Of which I was an active participant for... a good 5 seconds or so.

So I sit here sipping my tea and giggling to myself, basking in my 51 renown battle glory.

I really like achievements, although I would have prefered for them to have come after a hard-fought, well-earned victory perhaps. No matter. Onwards! To our new to be expanded barracks! Huzzuh!

That was probably due to the retroactive achievements being brought online. They take effect when you're first game ends.

Yeah, I know. I just found it amusing.

There was a screen somewhere showing 70-80 renown for a single game ;)
