Author5th Team blindfold tournament plus
You don't need to use your mirror, just settle and let AI take over.

Wait I'm confused. You can have auto battles in this tourney?
Ew, I made some Mistakes lately, in terms of "Strategy".
Feels weird to realize you "Suck"... xD
Ayy, Lmao.

Well... If you don't do anything, the AI takes over like any other battle.
Mage AI is very annoying. They will tend to latch onto one mage opponent and focus on them till the bitter end. As a mage this means that if they decide that I am that target (happen to have less HP than any other mage) then they will just keep on at me. Equally if I try to use the AI to get battles done more, it will ignore any marauding ogres hitting my ogres, to attack someone well away. There was one battle where I came last :( as got focused by a battlewise wiz with DoF and then got torn to pieces. Meanwhile a tribal sat in the corner and got ignored. I came last and got more FSP than the winner.

Anyone know of a build for wizard or dwarf where the AI is a little more consistent?

I am pondering a full defence classic wiz, or perhaps an elemental and firewall build. PErhaps with defence reduction could be interesting. Any thoughts?

Search elf on unicorn, she's currently doing chaos dwarf.. I'm trying it now and not too bad.

Firewall build is effective in this event I've seen. :)
What I mean is, I feel as a mage if I am using auto the whole way I am more likely to be targetted by other AI's, while also having my AI not protect my core troops. Pure melee armies seem to be targetted less often by those other than in range.

^ This.
Explains several of my last losses.

Aw, sad. Was doing well at beggining.
Still Nvm, I ll try to have fun!
Btw also: Why my untis "Act Waywardly"?
And enemies wont?
Even when I make an action that isnt "Wait/Defend" (Moving, for instance).

I drew aggro of enemies due to this, I think.
Or maybe they'd focus me anyway, Idk.
How do you deal with shaddow barbs? Had a battle where my "ally" was a shaddow barb. I tried waiting and defending but everyone did that (including a might attaack dark elf AI shrews :/ ) and did not start battle untill I attacked a neighbouring tde. Then battle started, I fought, killed a lot, but the barb just waited around and debuffed everything with his 180 mana. Till the final scraps he hasnt lost a single unit while I got beat up pretty bad, and at that point noone had any defense but him. So how am I supposed to do this?

If I dont attack anything, noone will attack anything and the battle will last forever. If I do, my partner will do nothing while I do hard work and claim victory over me. I got almost 3 times the exp that winner barb did..

Should I try magic DE maybe or is that a bad idea?
I got that every time i faced shadow barb. They are just to powerfull for this kind of event. I'm sure they will get nerfed at the end of the event.
for Aurelija:
Just shoot an enemy who can't reach you, that should start the battle. Also kill a relatively unimportant stack I guess.
TDE, dont have any shooters :/

I did found a pretty nice strategy.

I summon crazed trolls with my first summon. Then I play defensively and just run around the map trying to last hit units and avoid damage to trolls.

The ammount of attack he gets from bloodlust is crazy and then he can take out remaining big stacks while minotaur defends (and if he dies I can still call up spiders or harpies).

Still, constant non stop disruption ray puts a stick to that strat when they just oneshot that defending minotaur :/

My last fight a wizard AI won and I got 3rd, my ally shadow barb got last cause his first hero turn was DELAYING ME (we were the only ones who had a sword of cold so he should have realised I am an ally). Then he rushed a fury barb and got destroyed :/
AI enemies never have armaments ?
I can see only one other player except me having armaments.. So basically that's the human player ?
Never mind. I just found another troop with armament :P
we were the only ones who had a sword of cold so he should have realised I am an ally)

AI can have sword of cold too. He may have thought chaos wiz was ally, they don't need sword of cold

I summon crazed trolls with my first summon
This is a typical AI move, I had a game where a player did this and I only realised he was human when he had lizards left because he summoned spiders. If I wasn't feeling nice I could have easily given him 3rd/4th place instead of 2nd.
Can someone try and explain how does the AI work?

I was going to win this. My plan was to camp in a corner with minos, let wizard and DE kill eachother and safely take out tde (I thought charmer was my ally).

Then suddenly, the wizard starts putting all the effort into killing my minos. Lightning after lightning.

I never hit that wizard, not once (maybe breaktrhough idk).

He was being hardcore attacked by a dark elf. There were faster units around to focus (shrews).

There was a TDE in the exact same position as me except he had less minos (thank god for that last lucky strike :/ )

Why in the hell did he decide to focus me????

This match probably cost me any chances at a gold medal...
AI probably knew he wouldn't be able to kill off the DE (which is also technically his ally) and decided to go for 2nd place instead.

You were also playing quite aggressively so that goes part way to explain why you were targeted.

Let's see how the rest of your battles go before claiming it cost you gold, good luck!
Yeah but that other tde was easier to kill than me, he could have went for him :/
At the moment I am 8 battles in with 32 points
8 battles with 38 points,
got 2nd place two times because RL force me to use auto.
battle last for average of 1 hour.

Tried something unorthodox. A disruptor defensive DE. Worked well, got second (enemy took out his teammate to give me second place lul).

From the very start I used everything to weaken that ogre shaman, witch disruptions, almost all hero disruptions... But nope. Still couldnt beat them.

A combination of 65 ogres and disruption magic is not balanced. It has little to no weakness compared to other mechanics that have plenty of weaknesses....
