This afternoon, the leader of Imperial Forces, Redup2, approached me about fighting a 20-minute prep war. We accepted, with the following conditions:Rules
Fullout with level 105 Cap
No mage allowed (except for binds)
Center bounds; Ancient Legion attacks
Knockout style, Clan Wars Classic battlefieldStarting Opts
With that, we massed, and the fight commenced shortly. Ancient Legion's starting opts were pretty good in terms of levels, but our highest was level 94. Ancient Legion average level: 80.75, (8 people)
I don't have a pic for their starting, but they had these guys:
Redup2: 103 combat
Franciscob33: 100 combat
Some level 92 I don't remember the name of
Salamence609: 91 combat
Ozy the Mage: 90 combat
Jonathanb05: 75 combatImperial Forces average level: 91.8 (six people)
With that, the fight commenced. We started by piling their warlord, Ozy the Mage. Unfortunately for us, he tanked like a madman and took about 10 minutes to kill. In the meantime, IF piled and killed Wellycraft24, who, at level 70, was our lowest level. This made the score 7-6.
We finally managed to kill Ozy, and moved on to their lowest level, Jonathanb05. We managed to get in some good hits and kill him, too, bringing the score to 7-4. From there, we piled Redup2, their highest level, who also tanked very well. Fortunately for us, Lamb Bug and Upperninety8, two of our highest members, had gotten in some pretty good sniping, and Redup didn't have that a full load left in the tank (no pun intended). We continued to hold the lead, piling their last three people, ending with Salamence, the last IF member to fall.
We ended with six of our eight still intact. Mage_Miner10 and Wellycraft24 died for us.
Very good fight IF!
I'd like to congratulate four people, two from each clan, who I saw doing a really nice job. Ancient Legion:
Lamb Bug tanked very well and was our only effective binder. I thought he would get koed like a dozen times, but he managed to tank well enough to stay alive, although he told me later that he ended with no run, no prayer, no food, and 14 hits.
Upperninety8 did a great job sniping, tanking, and piling, and helped a lot by helping us keep organized. Upperninety, although a new member, acted like a savvy veteran in this fight. Imperial Forces:
I have no idea who was calling the piles, but I do know that one IFer did an absolutely great job. Ozy the Mage, as I said, tanked forever, and was a real tough @$$ to kill (sorry if anyone's offended, he did a truly great job). It's no wonder why he's the warlord.
Redup2 also tanked well, bound well, sniped well, and showed why he was the highest level at the arena with some timely hits.On the whole, very good fight. Nice job IF! Great job AL for hanging in there and getting a good win against a tougher foe! All in all, great fight, and maybe we'll see you guys again at some point.
