I would rather see them kill each other to be honest, one less player to worry about :roll:

Yondallus is sitting in his tent. Suddenly a messenger tumbles in.

Messenger: Master Yondallus, bad news! Dragonette's troops have taken almost all of our land, and taken all of our resources!

Yondallus: Blast it! What do we have left?

Messenger: Well, there's me...and there's you, and there's this tent.

Yondallus: Hmmm, any news on when new supplies arrive?

Messenger: There's no such thing as getting supplies in this kind of game, sir.

Yondallus: I see...Well then...Take this kitchen knife and get out there! I want that land back!

Messenger: but Sir...

Yondallus: NOW!

The Messenger runs out of the tent, and numerous shots are heard. Then there's a voice that says: "Hey, he was holding a kitchen knife".

Yondallus: dangnabbit! I can't believe that didn't work. Well, I guess this leaves only one option: wait for them to leave....

Not to be continued.

:lol:

At least YOU still have a tent Yondallus!

:cry:

I am sleeping under a bush!
Now WHY did it do THAT!

If at first you don't succeed - give up and have a coffee!

Yes I am on the transplant list for a new sense of humour!

Actually that avatar is supposed to look like me. Yondallus is an RPG character I've created(World of Warcraft related) and is supposed to be a Gnome. And seeing that picture, I just had to use it.

AMEN!

I've been clean for almost a year. And the Naxxramas dreams stopped 6 months ago. I'm a new man.

Okay, a player has me to publish this game. If no-one has any complaints by Friday night then I will publish it.

I just went through the TRs.

It seems I had a better chance of winning that one on turn 12 than on turn 7 when Sal and I had a miscommunication problem. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of dividing my forces into 3 which made it very easy for Sal's horde to take them out :(

Another argument to support for your inertia hypothesis, korexus. Sal was not stronger after sleeping than I was after fighting Yondallus who was among the three strongest players according to the scoreboard when I attacked him.

Hopefully being able to publish games will mean we don't need to swing too far in each direction when finding a balance, so long as players are willing to try out new ideas. :)
