Just checking in - one of our guys at the office dropped out of the Jester’s Ball game, and 3 of us managed to turn around a fairly dismal ongoing game of Iron Crown after “playing for the hell of it” after the game looked totally lost.
We’ve managed to kill 1 necromancer, 3 purgatory lords (who were whittled from 8k down to 3k worth of dead body buffs in their marching time), 2 liches and one queen of lies! Our 3rd guy got overrun down south (and the rest semi-afk, real life and all that on the weekend) but the other is holding out pretty well with orcs & goblin burn-and-runs in the bottom-left, and I managed to take and hold center with an excellent dwarven economy chugging out endless supplies of orcs and humans to throw into the meatgrinder.
Then I spent a Hero Coin and drew a Blind Justice. =0
We’ve been shuffling valor back and forth to fund mapwide valor nukes to take out the worst of our problems; necros, liches, 10k stacks of orcs, exploding dragons, etc.
Sort of off topic I know, but I promised some kind of report, so there’s my Iron Crown game! =P
We also realized after 70% of the map was dead that zombies should be avoided on their own territory.
We sort of just totally avoid zombies unless tanking a train at a town somewhere now anyways. Otherwise we just open and close the app as often as possible to see when a graveyard-sitting zombie has shuffled off. Then some goblin or Elf nips in and out and burns everything.
edit: Haven’t played too much, but am a big fan of The Iron Crown. We were searching hard for another fun & diverse map at 4 players, but they all seemed specific & challenge-esque. I’ve personally had a ton of fun with all the different things & race combos that can happen on Iron Crown, and teammates being really different.
