  1. I believe that I caught wind of OCC while I was playing my first season of Ukbbl, if I remember correctly from a forum post discussing the possible restructuring of the Ukbbl league format and OCC was mentioned as possible format to emulate. Being a clever boy with access to Google I was lead onto the league forums and since this was the time when I was all hyped about playing in perpetual leagues, which I had only recently discovered, instead of just spinning in the public ones I decided to give it a go. Then I hopped on to Ventrilo and been stuck ever since.

  3. Preserving ones team is not against the rules when the match is lost. You and Maniac trying to tell other people how they are supposed to play the game and in a league, when their conduct doesn't go against the rules sours the league just a quick.
  4. I mean the Skaven do have access to one of the most destructive lores of magic against lightly armored targets, so unless the Lizardmen are bringing full Temple Guard, it'll definitely be effective against them and can even put a dent in things like Swordmasters and obviously will be devastating against Witch Elves and Sisters of Slaughter if the Dark Elves bring them, so you should definitely bring them. And yeah bringing at least a couple of units of warmachines is always a safe bet with Skaven, as ridiculous as something being safe with Skaven sounds.
  5. I'd say that Teclis probably has the hardest start out of the High Elf factions, given how isolated he is from the rest of them, with only 2 minor factions relatively nearby, both of which only control 1 settlement and don't seem to actively expand most of them time. Infact as of late I've noticed that one of them usually gets taken out really early by one of the minor Lizardman faction from the Southlands for some reason. Given that you are fighting a Lizardman faction that is in control of 4 settlements at the start of the campaign at least with me playing on Very Hard fields armies mostly m
  6. I think it's because there is this one guy who keeps telling people that orcs need to be "delenda est", whatever that means.
  7. That's why they have Wrestle, so they'll drag you down with them for the boots of the peasants.
  8. I would like to point out that 50% of all Bretonnian teams are currently in tier 1, including the team that won the championship twice in a row. Must be odd for Ogres to have to look up to see their opponents from the depths of tier 3 and below.
  9. The problem with changing the mechanics for Skaven though could have hideously unbalancing effects on the campaign, when the Skaven aren't being played by a human, since at higher difficulties they pretty much always just have 20 stacks full of Stormvermin and Rat Ogres and Warmachines anyway, with absolutely no problems sustaining them, so if they were given access to more slots in a stack, I can easily see that they'd simply just run all over the other factions due to that advantage. With the same of course applying to Greenskins and if they would get Waagh armies on top of that, then even m
  10. It will be a learning experience for both of us. Next week sounds just fine, do you mind if I record the replay and upload it to Youtube with commentary?
  11. Btw Barristan would you be up for a quick battle during next week?
  12. Which is exactly how it should actually be, since Stormvermin aren't supposed to actually be capable of taking on elite units of other races. They are elite by Skaven standards, but Skaven standards for elites are rather low when compared to the other races. I mean the Swordmasters can deflect arrows and bullets with their swords for fucks sake. But on the otherhand, Stormvermin are, or at least should be since I can't recall off the top of my head what they cost both to recruit and upkeep, cheaper than any other races elite units and this of course extends to all other unit types too. A unit
  13. Well I mean only way to improve is to battle right? And the AI, once you start to recognize its patterns becomes rather easy to deal with on a tactical level and then it just becomes a battle of will your dudes be able to hold against the AIs buffed units.
  14. A bit of a side note here, would there be any interest by folks to watch a Vortex campaign playthrough on either Very Hard or Legendary difficulty? And if so would there be interest in people voting on which faction and leader I'd do it with? I've been itching to record and upload something on Youtube for some time now, so I figured I'd see if there was any interest here, so I'd know whether or not I'd post the videos on here, as I'll probably record them regardless. Another idea I have also been toying with would be to see if it would be interesting if we could get an OCC multipla
  15. Maybe you guys should try higher difficulties and/or multiplayer campaigns? Bonus points for head-to-head campaigns although I suppose those would be more fun if you had more than 2 people in and could organize it in a forum or something consistently over a longer period of time.
