Taking down a mage

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Defenders : One Thread

I have an idea on dealing with sensei.

But I need 3 types of mages.

Reds, Blues and Blacks. which team is ready to take him down?

Note: he is high-ranked, taking him down needs extra care and organisation.

Reds must have inferno and meteor storm blues must have hallucination, fool's geld and gaze of death blacks must have gaze of death

The plan is very tight-scheduled so it helps if all members have ICQ and are able to contact each other. so, download ICQ!!

Question, if a mage is in protection, can a mage he seiged take his counters and kill him?

If so, then this plan might work.

I stress again, taking him down requires lots of co-ordination. I hope all Defenders give me their fullest support.

If you need a green, just tell me the time.

As for the rest of the team, I have message them and am waiting for their answers.

And I also need contributions on which unit is best for pillaging.

If a mage can counter, then sensei will die in one attack. Otherwise, it would take several attacks to kill him.

At a certain timing, I need a Red to throw Meteor Storm at him, If it can get pass his barriers, then a total of 4 will go thru. Then, I need a few Blues to pillage him. I need those barriers down! A Blue will be on standby to cast Scrying Mirror. More Reds will go in with 1-militia attacks. Together, use Inferno. He has only 2 stacks, RDs and a fodder I believe. Once the fodder is gone, Blacks will go in with Gaze of Death to kill his RDs.

I do not want all his RDs dead. I want only his fodder dead. Leave the RDs if you want. Because he will go into protection, only through pillaging. I want Blues with Hallucinations to pillage him into protection. Not only will this kill his popul and drain his geld, it will also destroy his buildings which will greatly impede his recovery. Once we manage to achieve this, he is as good as dead. Wraiths is a good unit to pillage.

After he has gone into protection, Blues will cast Fool's Geld, while Greens and Whites multi-item him. I want him to have 0 gold and mana by the end of our attack. If possible, 0 popul. Use Mana Vortex, Book of Phrophecy etc to do it. With no geld and mana, it will take time for him to recover. Any offensive spells like Meteor Storm etc shall be used. Even if he still has RDs at the end of our attacks, they will be disbanded because of his inability to pay their upkeep. My guess is that he will start pillaging others to get his resources back. His first pillage may go thru, after that, he will have to summon other units when his RDs are gone to pillage ppl. That will be a meteoric drop in rank.

Let's say he has 200 turns, he would need at least 100 to get his resources back to normal(excluding mana). He will need at least 20 more turns to get his mana online. If our pillaging work, 200 turns will not be enough for him to recover even his popul.

He usually logs in at either 1200 hrs and 0600hrs Archmage time. All offensive spells will be cast on him at that time. If we can do it while he is online, then chances are, damage will be done before he realises that he is hit.

After his protection is passed, we will commence the real seiges. By then, he will be an easy target. Or else, he would have abandoned account by then. A third possibility is that he will provide such an easy target that by the time we get ready to kill him, he is dead!

Any contributions?

PS. better start stockpiling those mana and items...

I only have one suggestion about this and it will help you guys alot. When my friend was pillaging other mages he didn't know that he had 1000 mind rippers! We'll the result was impressive for he was able to pillage 100000000 geld. Again and again he pillaged other mages and was able to pillage his highest pillaged amount. 214000000 geld! I thought you guys need an extra hand so this is it!

Note: this only happens when you enemy has only a few units and a few anti-pillage units. Also this only happens when you pillage someone with a rich country and has a very high geld rate!

Actually, it's the amount of pillagers vs amount of defender units.

Personally, I like to go with wraiths. Their chance of success even against mages with high amount of fodder is greater.
