Alright, after income and such I'm sitting at 3340. I'm going to hire a wubba and an aumtlich for army 1, and 4 aumtlich for army 2. I'm going to fire 2 goblin QMs, and (if I can) hire 2 slayers for Army 2.

After this point I've got 2240 remaining.

Army 2 marches on the spitemaster.

Do nothing

Opening Treasury: 2140
Income: 1100
Maintenance & Salaries: 1100
Purchases: None
I hire 1 QM and a slayer for Army 2.

Both armies march on Jamesdemen's Fortress.

If I'm right, the game is over and either Pinnacle or I win. I feel like there was little room for strategy - perhaps if recruitment costs were higher?

We are still going! Pinnacle's fortress took some damage and Jamesdenem's fortress took a beating, but no one eliminated.

Round 7 begins now. To submit your orders just post in this thread using the unhidetime tag with a timestamp of 2/11/2015 6:00 AM

Someone Else, I agree with you about the lack of strategy options. When I was setting up this game I was trying to avoid it turning into a quagmire like Spitemaster's original attempt. I opted for simplicity but it looks like I oversimplified. There is probably a happy medium between my game and Spitemaster's.

Brian, it looks like you have me hiring a second cloak for Army 2, when I said dismiss.
That may affect the damage I did on Pinnacles fort.

After that beating, I might want to plan some defensive measures.

Okay, there's an error somewhere. It says I've got 2 slayers in army 2, but I had 3 and hired one more, so I should have 4. Unless I'm wrong in my math, that should give me a total damage on the fortress of ((300*1.6+93)-(300*1.05))*5.5-140*1.05=(573-315)*5.5-147=1419-147=1272, which is sufficient to destroy it.

Someone Else is correct that I should be in negative fort health.

If I had decided to attack him instead of Pinnacle, Pinnacle would have won.

And if I had decided to not be aggressive and defend for a turn, then there would be no change to any of us.

:shrug: I have a feeling Someone Else will win this, and I am fine with third place.
