finally ended the losing streak with a FW/UD bg - the game is just different playing a 1500 rank person then sub 1000 rank people

got a great draw - went 2nd and got a greater pitspawn - got my font and charged his shrine. folowed up with imp and firemaw - had my very slow dwarf run down to grab the other bottom font. He didn't get such a bad draw - with lonx defender and nora beast. But like I said - different game - he brought out juya and a tiger to attack the pitspawn and put the tiger right by GP.... one rounded the tiger - put a CB on juya - he actually cast rebound to get rid of it though. then brought out a icesnap...GP is now awestruck - but he has retreat so does that and puts the 2nd fire ruby in between us.... this is where the rank starts to show - 2 rounds in a row he hits GP 2 or more times and activates both absorb, and then arrow eater. Like the GP needs more damage. finally he summons a Yeti - but even this doesn't finish off the GP.... So domi had come up - yeti was 1 space away from icesnap - domi him and kill icesnap - then it was gg.

Losing streak had hit 11 games - it was mostly with fun bgs, and about 3 of them I shoulda won, but made mistakes at the end(exampl of how it went - next to opponents shrine which had 5 hp, killed by summon ant - when it could have been avoided)

Also - this is win 100 in DoW.


First win against a TOP 200 opponent!!!!!!! - took almost an hour - great game - 11 dow points at the end - post 1

What can I say - one of the toughest matches I ever faced(rank 163 SL/UD vs. my FW/FS), and pulled off(i've had tougher games that I lost). Nearly an hour long:
sciroppo Win Yes Brood Pits 19 Oct 19, 2009 2:11:30 AM 53 minutes

Sciroppo brought it to me early, charging in with cheap SL units.

Managed to survive the onslaught, when he followed up with broodmothers and Klizik + brood + wake the brood - this gave him huge damage - and he kept shattering my CBs.....

Finally stuck a 20 nora stone on his BM, and locked her down with a magnetic arun, and then pinged her down, then he feinted a retreat and pulled her back and cast the hated - draconic benediction!!!

But he had so many units he couldn't move them all in time, also he did this with a spider leaping spell, and a last DB towards the end of the game.....

The problem for him, was all these units were generating massive nora for my UT. I was able to do several things a turn or bring out a big unit.

Then i got my froggy out that killed all his summons, and he didn't have much left on the board. he had a level 30 ava though - which he transfigured and charged with - then more woken spider eggs - the retrib to take out my WW....

This is when he hit me with the DB - I thought it was gg - but he couldn't kill my Hydraxor, which was sitting next to his ava at this point.... finally gg for me when I killed it!!!!

Wow - tough game against a good SL player - usually SL is my nemisis....just managed to pull this off

Thought he'd won it when he killed my angel and my sonic early with DB and he still had akakios w/ RB + herald on the field, then I shattered it and gave him a CB, brought up 'the exile', domi'd his herald, ended up having to shatter my own fleshewn helm to put on a sac dagger before killing ak for the healing for exile. Got lucky when avalache showed me his acid trap(this would have been gg otherwise for him). Then he hung on for awhile longer even after it was over....


played a tough 29 min FW/SP vs. UD match - on victory screen - 3 points SP, 1 FW, very weird - played with the FW shrine

donwon Win Yes Ironfist Stronghold 15 Oct 15, 2009 12:23:33 AM 29 minutes

finally saw firemaw, and held on thru 2 banishes - could have been anyones match - he had both fonts for awhile. but I was very careful in my use of my couple spells, and brought out both dragons, course 'the exile' was he who got the 2nd banish.

pictures or it didn't happen:


used hypercam to record andother pox match: vs_Frilquanin_FFIS_barbs_20091008_FWST_dragons

Good quick game against some tough barbs. Just testing to see how the vidoe looks, uploaded here, vs. using photobucket.
