Ben's Vortamic SP on Steroids Won in r5503 (Initial Battle)

Hey guys, for those who saw my 0 loss replay for "To the Capital" SP (in r5503), which can be found here, you probably won't be surprised to hear that I just edited Ben's map by adding an additional 100 knights and 50 barbarians (in r5503). I had heavy losses, but I still survived the initial attack.

Of course, I did use saves: it actually took me around 75 minutes to win (redoing heavy losses with saves), but the replay is about 37 minutes.

It was much easier to survive this battle (well, maybe I should call it a war now?) playing with r5503 than with r4179 because very few knights and barbarians entered from the west compared to when I won it in r4179. In addition, the bowmen and crossbowmen didn't fire that much at my ranged units, but rather mainly at my storehouse. It can't get simpler than that.

It's pretty boring, but after seeing the replay myself, it looks pretty funny (I couldn't see very far beyond my fence during game play, maybe that was a good thing :lol: ).

NOBODY EDITS MY MAPS!

Just kidding ;)

Your next challenge should be to do the original without using saves (!)

I just looked at it, and it looks interesting (I had a horrible strategy my first try, and I only survived about 10 waves). Does it only have 60 waves? If so, does the player "win" if all 60 waves of enemy troops are terminated?

Yep, but it becomes pretty hard after the 30th wave or so, when the enemy starts to attack from 5 directions :rolleyes:

I tried a second time and adjusted my strategy, and I lasted until about the 35th wave (around 6000 points) without using saves (well I saved, but I didn't revert to a previous point in time to "cheat"). I'll try again and until I'm satisfied, and then I'll send you a replay.

@Bence791, did you use saves at any time (besides just saving because perhaps you wanted to take a break, plan, and/or resume later) to revert to a previous time? If not, should I manage to beat all 60 levels (which I can't say I can do at the moment) using saves, would it be okay, or is one only allowed to use saves for resuming later, etc. (to be on this official score board)?

Also, how many times did you attempt it (besides the first time where you maybe explored the map, got the gist of how things are, etc.) to get to the 37th wave and 8000+ points?

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean from wave 48 onward, you don't get more recruits and weapons?

Nah you won't reach wave 60. I think it's impossible to win.

Re: Ben's Vortamic SP on Steroids Won in r5503 (Initial Batt

you get every 15 waves a recruit bonus between 10 and 19 recruits
and
from wave 20 you won't get more weapons
you get at wave 20 from every thing 10 and 6 horses

In wave 60 you get 10 recruits and 18 bonus, and you will be attacked by 480 man.
I haven't made it to survive it, i made it to see how far you can get :D

If I can make a suggestion: let the difficulty increase more gradually. Right now it's like: easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy easy hard hard VERY HARD dead.
