    Age 89: War between Evil Hipmunks and Elitist Jerks

    Good Evening All,

    I am sorry for being slow on this article but here we are, better late than never I suppose. We have a war between Evil Hipmunks and Elitist Jerks where the war got away from EJ. I had the opportunity to speak with each kingdom. Hipmunks are now 5/5 for the age, number 1 for honour and chasing land and networth in 2nd right now.

    Speaking with Hipmunks, this is what they had to say:

    After our War with Ascension we knew there were only 2 options next, war Jerks or b2b Ascension. I shot a PM to the monarch of Jerks to gauge interest and got a positive reply pretty fast. We had agreement on a land cap and no ops before war and to start hostilities each kingdom would do 5 hits after which the lower networth gives button.

    Warring all those Dark Elves with free spells made for an interesting war. As we had a no ops till war agreement, it meant we would be facing a lot of ops all at once at the start of the war. We went for a Barrier ritual to dampen the hits and chose to send an Emerald immediately before starting our hits. During the war the strategy revolved mostly around timed SW on their Heretics to try and limit the NM’s and tickly ET on their Rogues to limit their damage. With regards to chains we combined hits on rogues with chaining their offensive provinces.

    As we had a lot of GC coming from out of our EOWCF we could afford to send a hostile dragon and fund a new one immediately. Jerks decided to tank the hostile dragon and when they did decide to slay on day 2, we could send our second dragon immediately. We decided to slay the dragons on us, which we could also afford with the TM defense that we had as Dark Elf is lacking in offensive power. We had some issues, as expected, to keep all that free mana and rogue stealth at bay but the damage that was done was still manageable. After having an Emerald dragon on them for most of their outgoing and incoming waves, Jerks were in a bad spot. They stocked up mana for a last hurrah and even though we SW’d the ticks before min time, they managed to LL a lot (>900 acres on me for instance!)

    I enjoyed the war as it was our first time facing a DE kingdom and it gave us a lot to think about with regards to how they would approach us in war. Although Hipmunks famously has more people in leadership than in the core, most of the heavy lifting in this war was done by Dax and Starsfan so a big thank you to those two!

    Feedback from Elitist Jerks on the war:

    It was an agreed war with agreed land caps. We land capped at 72k while Hipmunks held at 69k. No ops till war and after each kingdom hitting 5 times, the condition was to declare war ASAP.

    Our focus was on the heretics as we knew they would be a problem. Given this was an arranged war, we broke the server and ops kept failing. Many of our rogues were ET'd before they could complete the AW run we were planning after declaring. They had a huge raw power advantage plus their science was pretty solid. Our WPAs held up but their barrier ritual prevented us from cutting through as we had hoped on NM. The turtled on the opening wave too, thus we were trying to NM a target down from substantial DEF and even with NM we weren’t able to triple or quad tap. It was an uphill battle as expected, but we wanted to fight the best and we have this age.
