View Full Version : What is Your...

1) Best win (units alive/unharmed units alive)?
2) Best pillage comeback (enemy units alive when it started)?
3) Longest time in queue?
4) Most destructive hit?
5) Unit You hate to see the most on the opposing side?

For me:
1) 5 alive/2 unharmed.
2) 3 enemies vs my lone BB.
3) 5 minutes.
4) Level 3 WM on clumped enemy force (two archers, thrasher and WH - turn one hit for 8arm/16str)
5) Raidmaster. I just don't... do not want.

1. 6 units alive, 1 or almost dead (I think...person didn't know how to play yet).
2. 1v3, BM vs 2 BBs and an SS I think? Was cool cos it was vs 2 BBs
3. I don't really time it :p. I guess 5 min? If I don't get one in 5 min I change power or do something else.
4. Well...tempest I suppose? 30 damage or something including the heavy impact and echo.
5. Everything scares me :p, I've been playing too long and know how everything can screw you over haha

I don't have a good enough memory for most of these, but...

5. A *third* raidmaster.

A close runner-up is the second raidmaster. :)

I don't have a good enough memory for most of these, but...

lol - yeah me too.

1) I did once beat the lovely Stoicmom without losing a unit :)
5) More than one high str/arm Shield Varl

05-14-2013, 01:28 PM
1) Best win (6alive/2Bow Master unharmed)
2) Best pillage comeback (I think it was 3 units, but im not sure)
3) less then 7minutes?
4) Most destructive hit? Tempest 10/13/8 (3 units killed0
5) Warleaders, raidmasters(oh those are annoying, but yea i use them also have 6 i think)

05-14-2013, 04:28 PM
1: 6/3 (against a newb w/double WL 3 arch 1 bb, rank six, my bb and archers never got touched)
2: 4 units all broken and maimed, usually two varls, and I have a full str BM sitting way back, easy pickings.
3: Longest time in Q - about 2 1/2 hours for a tourney match (when it's around midnight here)
4: Either a rank 4 WH hit (killing 3 units, maiming a WM) or as Slimsy likes to do a Double Rank 3 RoA on a completely broken Unit, so purdy.
5: WL/Arc combo or 3 RMs

05-14-2013, 07:10 PM
1) 6/3, don't remember the details
2) 1 unharmed 14/14 SRM wiped the floor with a team of five. All were maimed but still around 10 in arm+str, and scattered across the battlefield. It was absolutely epic ! He is since then nicknamed "the Janitor".
3) Can't remember, probably a good half hour in tourney
4) r2 Tempest for about 30 str total, IIRC
5) second and third raidmasters are pretty high up on the list. Rank 3 BB gives me a lot of worries. I used to moan at the sight of a SS, but I think I'm over that now.

New question:
6)How many hours have you put into The Banner Saga: Factions according to Steam?

- I'm at 63 hours. I know a lot of you guys will seriously overshoot that time... (probably by weeks lol)

05-15-2013, 06:02 PM
720 hours

05-15-2013, 06:52 PM
720! We need to take you out to lunch, carrots. :)

110 for me

05-15-2013, 07:40 PM
Hmm if I break down my hours spent, and discount it by 25% (say I was only battling around 75% of my recorded time), and also assume that the average time a battle took for me was 20 min...the projected battles comes out to 1600, since day 1 of beta (QM included).

05-15-2013, 07:52 PM
660 hours here:p and no beta games - all since Factions went public in February and with the exception of maybe a dozen games, all ranked @ 1190 games and 87 days logged in :eek:

05-15-2013, 08:15 PM
#6 - 294 hrs.

05-15-2013, 08:54 PM
332 hours.

Wow @ Stoicmom ! I'm pretty sure you take the cake on this one !

05-16-2013, 12:53 PM
1) 5/2
2) maybe 1 vs 2, my matches usually don't end in huge pillage difference
3) 5 minutes
4) Tempest killing three units, two by direct hit, third by heavy impact
5) at least one raidmaster
6) 70 hours

05-16-2013, 01:25 PM
1)6 units alive, 3 unharmed.
2)5v1 with my BM alone.
3)2:30 min.
4)Tempest killing 5 units, 2 from direct hit and 3 from heavy impact.
5)I hate SRM because you have to hit both strenght and armor in order to maim them.
6)73 hours.

05-16-2013, 06:10 PM
1) I think I've finished with >5 units alive a couple of times. Both archers typically unharmed.
2) I'm with Kuba on this. 2vs1 is the most likely.
3) I don't typically wait too much (I go back to the PGs or HoV), so I'd say 2 minutes max.
4) Probably a Tempest killing 2-3 units. I've captured the following, a 2x16=32STR hit, with a full
Rank-1 Warhawk! (and yes, I had 1WP on the horn :) -- it'd be a shame to miss such a chance!)
5) I'm with Raven2134 on this one: All units scare me :(! Perhaps SRM a little more.
6) 79 hours.

Now I've played so many matches at this point I can't pick out many single moments for most of these. But this thread is awesome so I want to contribute!

1) UNITS REMAINING/UNITS UNHARMED: 6/6 against AFK opponents that almost beat me! I kid, I definitely recall a 6/2 victory and probably half a dozen times winning with all six up!
2) BEST PILLAGE COMEBACK: See image below:
3)LONGEST QUEUE TIME: Probably about 30 minutes (I sat in some long ones during the beta!)
4) MOST DESTRUCTIVE HIT: See 3... :) ... alternatively, see My super duper Skystriker Finsh at 12:25 (http://www.twitch.tv/boldbrendan/c/2122455)
5) There's nothing that really urks me too badly right now. I hate to see 2 Warhawks in the last two slots or 2 Siege Archers in the first two! (can't decide on which I'd prefer)
6) Brace yourself... 625 hours played! Although historically I've had the habit of leaving the game open from time to time (Strand > any screensaver)

05-20-2013, 08:55 PM
1. I think I had 5 units alive, but all of them were injured
2. I had a bow master who won a 3v1. Came back from a 6v4 and she killed all 6 enemy units.
3. 5 minutes
4. I have hit 9's and before lol. I usually only play with only one shield master.
5. Skystriker. A good skystriker can be a real nuisance

1) All 6 units alive (majority of them having less than 3 str/hp)
2) Warhawk with no armor left or using a weakened strongarm to push enemy units across the coal map
3) 5 minutes
4) Highest hit was a warhawk with 12 damage on a thrasher
5) I hate facing skystrikers more than provokers.

Mine is something like 25. I'm currently running on a 19-day streak, and hoping to break the 30-day milestone :p

7) Longest daily login streak :)

I just got my first 30 today! (although I admit to just logging in and not playing over the last week)

05-21-2013, 03:34 PM
1) afaik 5 units alive
2) 1 on 4 with a 12/13 Strongarm
3) 5 minutes or something
4) around 20 with a puncture
5) no special unit, but at the moment triple raider is so annoying to me :-/
6) ~130h
7) 9 ^^

93 day bonus!

05-23-2013, 04:43 AM
1. I have had six alive, probably about one or two completely healty
2. About 3 to 1 with a strongarm
3. 5 minutes in quick match (if longer I change power or try again), tournament longer (but that is another world) 15 to 20 minutes ( if longer than that I go to quick match)
4. Probably about 13, 14
5. Skystriker, as I am pretty bad against them
6. 350 hours. That is pretty much. But I often keep the game open without playing and forget to close the game (hmmm)
7. About 35.
