Original post (from 4/20/2013):

Hi guys,

I don't stream or record my games, but I have been taking screenshots of some recent games in order to have some examples of good positioning and moves for an upcoming tactics board post.

Last night I had some really intense tournament games which I thought might be worth sharing. Each game was put into an album with some comments included. The games can be found here:

Album 1: Yth vs Naryan (round 1)

Keep'em coming

That was excellent! I wish I hadn't seen the outcome of the 6u5 battle in the screenshot thread beforehand. :( The outcome of that last battle seemed pretty certain after that picture with the WH who'd just moved into the middle (and a half armor-broken SRM...and archers in the middle of getting ganked). Ouch.

You (maybe?) don't need to paste into paint as you go; couldn't you use Steam screenshots (F12)?

More albums added to the original post! Some of the games were really good, most of them were really stressful for me. I would love to hear some comments :)

Great series again!

First, Re: Echlir's stream: whoa, that apan has a tough team! Usually, I can neuter 2x enemy RM by making them burn too much WP before engaging; and with one, it's usually easy to isolate him; but with three in a shield wall...

Back to Yth: I don't think I could play it well myself, but your team looks very scary. From these games, it looks like the key against you is, after taking out or outmaneuvering your breakers/tanks (RM, SM), to maim the SRM a bit and run all your units at the archers at once. Even then, it's pretty tough because your archers are firing and/or backing out of range on three out of four moves!

I guess glraven's team was one of the bigger threats (seeing as you know how to handle BBs); it was cool to see your SRM highlighted there (killing overextended raiders, shoving around shieldbangers), as he doesn't play such a central role in most of your other matches. For similar reasons, that ojustme battle was cool, especially the chaotic positioning just before the endgame. It's surprising that just an extreme team as yours is actually versatile (i.e., can win in multiple ways).

That single-bowmaster finish vs AP was epic.

Typo: In the AP battle, WL -> WM in this caption: "The Warleader adds insult to injury by hurting the about-to-be taunted RM." Also, in the match vs K_B, you say that the WH isn't lined up for a push, but SRM just before WH sure looks like a push-able situation...?

Amen to that.

I died a bit inside when I saw this team, even though it was not me, who was to battle it. Echlir seems to attract such "out of this world" builds - on his previous recording he was duking it out with ultra aggresive 3 trashers, WH, WM and SS.

Both games he came back from a situation in witch many players would simply surrender - GLORIOUS stuff.

Just like Yth's oldskool battle reports - not only are they GLORIOUS, they also remind me of the good old times, before they added replays to StarCraft.

Thanks for the heads up on the typos Frank, I made the corrections.

I have at least 3 more exciting matches to put up, but probably not until tomorrow sometime.

Excellent, Yth! Thanks for the read and congrats for the tourney win. :)

But, I'll hold it to you for "yelling out" (just as glraven points out) that 3x-archer builds should be caped (and/or bowmasters nerfed)! ;) Your build was faced with most types of builds and was proved to be almost-invincible...

Congratulations Yth on the tourney win:cool:

I don't necessarily agree that 3 archer builds are overpowered. I would rather say that the type of build I ran was uncommon enough that I had an advantage: I was used to my team but my enemies weren't.

A majority of the teams I was up against this tournament were compisitions I had played against at least 5-10 times in the past, with the exception of ojustme's crazy double WLs (which I might give a try in the next tourney).

I am also hoping that more people will try triple archer with a strong front line, just so I can make teams which can pick them apart. If backbiters are correctly utilized they can be a terror to an archer team.

I initiate my cunning plan: TURTLE CORNER MODE GO!
...
4) why is the SM holding 4 maces in this picture? OHH THATS HOW HE GETS 4 ARMOR BREAK!!


Lol. More great games. I don't remember my tournament games being nearly as tough as this back in the day. Congrats!

awesome action to play the game and huge collection of the game i am not play this game but after that i desire to play the superb hot game..How is it possible that i play the game?Is there link for downloading?

Um, yeah kato. Try this link (http://stoicstudio.com/forum/the-banner-saga-factions.php) and hit "Join-Up" (or go directly here (http://store.steampowered.com/app/219340)). You will first have to install the Steam software (it's free ;)), and then, through this Steam-software, you can install "The Banner Saga Factions" (also free!) and play. You must have an active online connection and a not-too-old computer.

Sorry Naz, I've been really busy of late. There is also the unfortunate fact that I ended up only taking about 8 screenshots during that game, because it was so intense.

For those who didn't see it, me and Netnazgul had an incredible tourney game in the great hall, where our varls walked across or were pushed across the coals at least 4 different times. It was a glory to behold and I was so into the game that I forgot to constantly press F12 :(
