    Who cares?
    I usually play for fun, not because of some weird obsession to beat everyone :lol:
    I just care about not being ashamed of myself once I get rekt.

    That said, TigerKnee , you can play in FFA MP games. When you have no team mates, you cannot drag anyone down, eh?

    You already have LA Atlantis, the proper ruler of the seas and the Master Race.

    [​IMG]

    Look, instead of weak mermens that copy the human weakling in a court of betrayal and incest you should trust superior Atlantean genetics, ice crafting and Death Magic. Pliz ignore Atlanteans are the other 50% of the Starspawn's enslaved workforce, THIS TIME we'll manage to beat them.

    Shitposting aside, it seems that Pelagia will have a simulated "infighting between nobles" chain of events, so you can get your rulers assassinated or poisoned. I am gonna love this.

    Added. I know, it's like HERESY. You can EDIT MESSAGES NOW

    C'mon, we are all bad. Play a team game, get me to scream at you then realize it's a fucking game and it doesn't matter. Join us, we're fun.

    Let the Decline games begin!

    Didn't expect that, too. One question: are the bless effects cumulative (probably not)?

    Some are, some can be taken a few times (hp, att, def etc). Not sure about weapons.

    Cumulative? Yes, you can combo them.

    Three levels:

    Passive, always active (like Undead leadership or Magic Weapons)
    Regular (needs Bless spell on sacreds)
    Incarnate (needs bless spell AND your god on the map)

    Maybe near christmas, when I have some holidays and my enterprise is closed due to the freezing temperature and if a suitable game starts around said period, I will actually manage to play this MP :negative:
    Dafuq are you talking about? Traditionally all codex games have been a rotation between a core comprised of a few experienced players and quadruple that number of Magnificient Bastards just going YOLO! and shitting said pro-gamer's fine tuned strategy with acts of random madness. You'd fit in like a charm...

    Try it, it's free!

    Our final confrontation during the Geriatric Wars is still the best Dom4 battle I've ever had the pleasure to play :salute: unfortunately for you I'm a shitty player so that's not much of a compliment :lol:

    I don't think there'd be any problem with releasing on GOG. You can pirate the game, and it works if you have the key - but most people don't want to give their key away if it means getting it blacklisted from playing newer versions.

    Dominions 3 with a nonviable key runs perfectly fine for the first 10-20 turns or so. Then the UI disappears and that's that. I find it intriguing that their copy protection works alot better than anything mainstream devs have in place.

    Honestly, it might just be that the game is too niche to attract many people to try and crack it properly.

    Change to real time battles sounds fine in this game, cautiously fapping.

    The first game on here, when everyone is trying to figure out blesses/recruitment/real-time scripting tactics etc., will be glorious.

    Pefect! Now I only need some sort of natural disaster to happen here. Ideally an hurricane, but I'd settle for any calamity I can use as an excuse to shut myself in and play untill food becomes a problem.

    It's perfectly timed for the winter season and the coming war. As long as there is power and hopefully some internets, everything is well.
