  2. 2-1 for elves, almost 1-1. Still, I had utterly bonkers luck again first half. I would love to play one game where at least one of these things didn't happen: my gfi to score doesn't fail, I don't lose a vampire (or two or three) to cas and regen failure before turn 3, I get a blitz and only remove my own thrall with it or a thrall gets MVP. Any one of these things could stop happening any day now, I hope. To be fair, I had some good turns second half and this was probably my third best match with these vamps so far (after my two wins), those elves were just better. Heck, my armour
  3. I am finding these vamps hard to enjoy. I had over 50% overall armour breaks last season, and 53% for the first match of this season just now. And it was 100% until turn 7, I think, and like 80% until turn 14. My vampires went to KO from almost every hit against them and my GFI casually failed almost half the time. No permanent injuries or even MNGs, but development was, like it has been for almost all my games, very minimal. Thrall got MVP (9/10 so far for thralls) and vampire did a casualty and a pass for a total of 8, 3 for vamps; I failed 2/3 of my easy spp farming passes.
  4. Okey, I forgot to report stuff happening here; me and my mercurial moods. Anyhow, OCC didn't even get to the playoffs. That said, a new season is starting and OCC warband is likely to need some fresh blood. @Kubusta already contacted me in Discord about joining, but we need at least one more and probably like 2 or 3 new names. Anyone is welcome, no need to actually be good at this game.
  5. 2-1 defeat against elves of Ruszi. Very fun game even if I had 2 blitzes against me (out of my 2 receiving drives) and buttload of bloodlusts. Vampires, unless they are totally wiped, can always attempt something. Would have been 2-1 for me or 2-2 if I hadn't failed a scoring GFI and 1-1 if Ruszi didn't have a AG5 witch elf that did a TD with a casual 2+, 2+, 2+, 2+, 2+, 2+, 2+ (skill reroll (dodge) available for 4 of those and team reroll on top of that). Got passing vampire (no previous levels) and wrestle thrall for my trouble. No permanent damage.
  6. Yeah, I was not expecting a win in any of my matches so far, and I only suffered one bad injury in this one. I just like complaining aboit things and I have been having a bad series of games lately.
  7. Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong (except casualties, only one niggling 0spp thrall) and it ended with roll of 1 for money. If you want some numbers, let's just say that my armour failed 47% of the time and I had only like 6 stuns in total, rest were KOs and casualties. Orc armor also failed quite often, 30% of the time, but I caused only stuns. I don't really mind it for this team, but I have now been diced 7 or 6 times since my last week's match (one was an edge case where I think I was diced but just might be salt), and I have horrid history with these kind of str
  8. Just for your information: Ratamo's toaster managed run it with 15 to 20 FPS with everything set to lowest. That is not good but it is surprisingly high for something that designed the same time as rudimentary steam engines.
  9. Dodge didn't exactly win me the day, but it helped me at least twice, and I won in the end. Hard earned 2-1 over some UD, and I must put most of the blame on dice. One MNG on a thrall, six for money and normal skill on a vamp. Orcs next, dear me.
  10. I understand it is much better optimised now, but I have also seen you streaming once... you need a new computer for sure. Also, I am quite surprised that I wrote something this coherent while alt-tabbing between the game and writing it. I was doing a solo hunt and camped in an outhouse for 20 minutes or so after sniping one hunter down.
  11. It is a hard game that can and quite often will take up to an hour of your time. That out of the way, I'd consider it a modern underappreciated gem. What is it? It is a battle royale game... please don't run away, you'll make noise and they'll hear you, and we wouldn't want that. It is a battle royale game that either went into development before battle royale games became a big thing or its developers just hated BR games and is thus utterly unlike other BR games. It is a game with a perfect name: there is a hunt and then there is a showdown. Basic idea is this: there i
  12. I value bloodbanks that can dodge to support vamps. Still, you are right that is is more for the thrall than the team. I'll decide between it and leader when I see how my next opponents look like after their 1st match.
  13. I'd argue now is the best time to take a dodge: new teams have no tackles (no dorfs in my division) and blocks are few. But yeah, leader is also an option, but it just feels off to me at the moment.
  14. In news today: 3-0 victory for vamps, proing 4 vamp starting tactic viable. Underworld of @Synthric offered tough opposition but dice was against them and UW are tricky team to coach. Level for a vamp and a thrall, six rolled for money. Most splendid opening match for OCC's newest vampires. EDIT: Thrall rolled 5+5; dodge, guard, what? I want opinions.
  15. Dawn is arriving to Altdorf as slowly rising sun pierces the distant horizon. The warm light of sun's yellow-orange rays slowly dissipate the morning mist that drown this majestic city. While Altdorf never really sleeps, this new new day wakes up those denizens whose rhytm follow that of the sun: hawking cries of merchants fill the streets through which slumbering columns of workers and students marching towards their workshops and university halls. All this with the background music of cathedral bells calling the faithful for morning prayers. And as city awaken
  16. They say "grats" when you score. To win a championship you must have scored a lot. So grats and grats again, I say. Good job breaking the tyranny of the bash, even if just for a moment.
  17. For the record, I will start arranging mentors to mentees after Christmas.
  18. Actually it is a script I almost always have to use when making Google sheets. They should really add native support for in-cell dropdown menu where you can pick multiple options. Here's a link.
  19. Like I hastily edited into the above message, use the script tool. Select the cell where you want to list your teams, select scripts and then the only option that should be available. Ignore the warning about unknown scripts (or don't, I might be very cunning criminal mining your data!) and you should get a window that allows selecting multiple teams. If you don't see the Scripts menu, it is probably hidden behind this button on the right, next to the black text. Image courtesy of @Ratamo.
  20. My test dummy @Ratamo managed to follow above instructions. That warrants pinging the rest of you to save me that small trouble. Thank you. @razta @Kjelstad @Igralius @brocCooLi @Bantha @Juriel @Borke @Hudd @Valentin @crimsonsun
  21. I wrote a simple spreadsheet to keep track of our mentors and teams they are willing to offer mentoring in. You would save me some small trouble by adding yourself into it. Write your nickname into A column. Select either "Available" or "Unavailable" for B column, depending which you are for next season. Select teams you are offering lessons in for C column. You can select multiple teams by using a tool found from "Scripts" menu. Below is a helpful picture with my stupidly Finnish UI. Have the proper cell selected and click "Scripts", then t
  22. ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL! @Ynwe, who has done a good work running this thing for its short existence, is taking a break from running it. OCC admin team wishes him well and hopes he comes back soon. But until Ynwe returns, I am going to be in charge around here. Some minor cleanup will follow, like hiding all the non-informative posts in this thread, but nothing substantial should change.
  23. Here is a quick look at my current game accompanied by a really quick and dirty map for reference. My little democratic-utopian regime known as Utopia (very imaginative, I know) formed in a desert planet. Our capital is called Devonshire, it is that little highlighted spot in middle of the map, below and right to the number 4 mark. My initial position was really bad, and my starting brigade got stuck in a prolonged fight against a nomadic raider people on the north. Lucky for me, there was a old pre-apocalyptic road around the main front and I managed to use them and so
  24. I only check manual if I bump into something I don't understand, which has been surprisingly rare. So far I have had to check only how some aircraft commands work, what some departments do and what their budget sliders mean and how logistics work*. Everything else I have learned by doing because it is quite intuitive in the end or becomes clear if you check enough tooltips. Still, I wouldn't recommend to people without at least some love for games that play like spreadsheets. *Logistics is the one thing you absolutely need to read from the manual if you want to understand it. I man
