Proposal for Reinvigorating Strategus

Hi, its clear at this point that Strategus is just a race to the bottom and there will be no way to save it without actual cooperation.  If it's not me attacking unarmed traders with 70,000 crates because no one else will, horribly mismatched rosters, ghost rosters or fucked up yeldurht time settings, it's bad map design or some other shit mechanics.  My proposal is to cooperate with a select group of people to get battles to happen.  We'd aim to host battles at very good prime time hours, not midyeldurht or 4am.  The idea would be ultimately to get a castle or city, arm both sides evenly and have a fight on flat ground outside of the actual walls with forward spawns nearby.  All mercs would apply for both teams, and the captains would take turn picking mercs to break up the usual grouping of clans.  This would create a friendlier environment where the only goal is to fight, have fun and get EXP, instead of try to do everything in your power to screw the other team over and waste all of their tickets or cap their flags using some scorched earth tactic.  I would most likely go for an actual intelligent selection of weapons and armor, instead of the gimmick weapons of my old EXP battles, if that's what the community wants.

Now to what will actually be needed:
A city or castle, so we can fight the free population as well as loom the gear needed for battles.
Troop generators.
Strategus gold.
CRPG Gold for prizes to encourage participation.
At least one other person to help manage gear, gold and inventory.

I know the biggest ask here is for a city or castle, but clearly some players have no plans for some of theirs.  Who will help me out so everyone can have some fun?

Sorry g, we don't have enough willing population for good xp battles anymore. A lot people (myself included) only play for juicy drama and masochistic battle conditions. I want archers shooting me, cav back stabbing me, and noobs trying to kite me.

Fair melee field battles might be fun 50 v 50, but it will never happen again even under perfect conditions.

Just gear an army and attack suno and it'll essentially be an xp battle. If you win, you have the city to do your thing, if you lose, just regear and attack it again and theres another xp battle

Here's a proposal. Build and army and then attack something. Dumbass.

Edit: Honestly regular strat battles can be fun, most of the Fisdnar fights have been. Just dont use the standard neckbeard shit and show people the ways of the weeb. We do, however, need a European Lance Volley Battle, where we have like 30v30 throw volleys and then charge, rinse and repeat.

Okay fine I'll buy 100 of those for my army right now, let's reinvigorate strat!


Also, Murder, just build an army, seriously. Stop attacking random people without gear at shit times and complaining that there are no decent battles.

Nobody is gonna give you free shit.

To get strat players to behave is like herding cats.  Nobody means to be an asshole, but they are.  In the war of the north, we struggled to keep even rosters.  We accepted 1/3 were against you, 1/3 were for you and 1/3 was an even fun battle.  We chose our battles accordingly, knowing every fight was a coin toss.

But I always thought Strat should be total war.  But, unfortunately, the better you do, the more enemies you make.  People would rather drag you down than build you up.  When I started kicking ass in the WOTN, people who never played strat for ages came back.  And then we were crushed.

Same with the Holy chadzian Empire.  We were advancing a castle a month (due to lack of players), and then our enemies sold their souls to the Eu and invited them in.

NA could become like Eu strat, where everyone grabs their territories and then sits, playing other games until someone tries disturb the status quo, then they all rally and crush them.

I'm not one to boast (ok, well, I do a little) but I MADE THE LAST FEW STRATS INTERESTING!  A large boast, but I attacked anyone and everything.  I trusted to luck, and luck was a lady... mostly.  Sure, Dutchy fucked me over, but at that point I had no forces left (and he knew that) fighting in the east.  And yes, I got pissy, but when you're drunk you tend to get angry.


Speaking of drunk, I am that right now.  And rather get side tracked into justifying my amazing strat history, with its insane battles, last minute reinforcements, embarrassing defeats and rotten encounters, I will tell you this.  This is a war game.  Never ever be satisfied with what you have!  Your neighbour's city/castle/village requires your ownership.  Unless you  are Eu.  They just slip into the old boring ways.  Oh, and if you are defeated, why not surrender?  Hold your lands and fight for a new lord.  Think of the rewards you get when you win strat.

Oh wait.  There are no rewards.  Ok, fuck strat, just focus on doolz.

Tell you what.  I'm a bit buzzed, but I feel I should take Suno.  I got the men, the gear, and am offering 3 lps to the top scorer, 2 lps to #$2, plus 1 lp to anyone who scores in the 3-17th range*.  As a neutral, I'm interested in anything you think will make this game better.

*If we lose, fuck'yall.  I'll save my looms for some competent siegers.

I'm game. Don't give a shit about the rewards though. You taking Suno, that'd stirr some shit for sure.
