Great Expectations Challenge

AuthorGreat Expectations Challenge
Great Expectations Challenge

Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape. - Estella

Lords, I invite you to participate in the Great Expectations Challenge (inspired by thaidye15). Unlike the Recreate Your Army or the Perfect Battles Challenge 2020 - Grinch Version, The Great Expectations Challenge is not event-bound. Instead, the Great Expectations Challenge is a series of snapshots of your personal journey through Lords of War and Money and an opportunity for you to showcase the skills you have learned along the way.

Challenge rules
- Participate by posting to this thread. Feel free to submit multiple posts as you complete different parts of the challenge.
- The challenge runs from now until February 15th inclusive.
- Phase 2 and Xtra challenge submissions must be from within the last 30 days (at the time of you posting your submission).

Challenge rewards
- 100 gold for each part completed
- 500 gold bonus for completing the whole challenge
- 500 gold for completing the Xtra challenge
- surprise non-monetary reward for completing the whole challenge

Without further ado...

for Sylin:
Quick submissions!
Here's my example for 2.2
Part 1
1.1 First Loss
Went undefeated for 187 Battles lol.

1.2 First Victory
My very first hunt.

1.3 First Friend
https://www.lordswm.com/pl_info.php?id=7557931 - janc
Didn't play with others until I reached level 9 and joined ID. Used to play Survilurg defence together since no one else were around our level at that time. Good days :)

1.4 First Group Battle Victory
Believe it or not, this CG fight was the first ever group battle I played in xD

1.5 Mirror Image
Now that was a very close match.

Part 3 Xtra Challenge
Lucky this is still there lol, had lots before but seems they were all surpassed easy.

Part 2 is something I won't be able to complete, cause I don't have an alternate castle for 2.2, and honestly 2.5 is impossible for factions other than knights or mages.

This was an interesting challenge. Looking back at the Combat Log really was fun XD Can't believe I lost some of those battles lol. Shows how much we've grown :)

Thanks again for the cool mini-event :)
for Void_Moon:

Another quick submission! You can do what Sylin did and post only parts of part 2! 2.1 and 2.3 should be pretty easy for you!

For 2.5,Chaos DE might be a good option? I'm thinking going with elemental call against a merc invaders or army? You will end up failing the quest but drawing the battle.

Alternatively (and I believe this is something every faction can do), doing a hunt or MG raid against lava or magma dragons might do the trick. Although I would say that that is harder than going chaos.
for Void_Moon:

And nice submissions for part 1 and the Xtra challenge!
for Ukak:
for Part 3 - Xtra Challenge, would a hunt which gave a record earlier but the record got broken later on by someone else, work for this challenge?
for Blindspot:
for Part 3 - Xtra Challenge, would a hunt which gave a record earlier but the record got broken later on by someone else, work for this challenge?

The record has to stand at the time of you posting your submission. :)
Does a ranger fight count for 2.2 ?
for Loafoant:
Does a ranger fight count for 2.2 ?

It does! That was exactly what I was hoping for!
