Can I get compensation on all the gear I loomed two days before the free reforge?  That was kinda painful, like buying at a store right before they have a 50% off everything sale.

And has goods stacking changed in the new strat?  I wrote some trade advice on Vaegir Discord during the test round:

"So I've been circling the map with 350 mules and buying 249 goods at every stop. I could carry 12-1400 goods and it would count around 300 crates. Then I got greedy at a buy fief and bought 650.... my crates went straight up to over 600 and I slowed right down."

This round I have 500 horses and seem to have to keep my number at 174 and the most goods I can carry is around 8-900.

Strat has always driven cRpg.  The mod has died a few times, and it was always when people started playing strat again that the mod fired up.  And a lot of people who would play strat made the choice not to grind, and now they won't play because so many others will have a huge head start on them.

since supply and demand will be easier to accumulate (although still people will buy it all the way down to 0 and wonder why the fuck the village sucks like idiots) making silver should be easier. shit, i played for a hour and a half or so and i only got 3k silver. that ain't shit, i'll get 10x at least or more than that off one trade run

Yeah, but you need silver to do a decent trade run- horses, gear and goods.  I have 15k that I earned in about 10 hours today and yesterday.  Next week I won't have near as much time... I probably won't even get 5 hours in, so I'll be lucky to have over 20k.  That's just enough for 100 mules.  Meanwhile there will be guys starting with around 200k, who could easily buy 500 mules and arm their men and a crap load of goods and start doubling and tripling their money in days.

I don't want to be a peasant just because I can't get on my PC for 4 or 5 hours a day.

This all makes me very happy, and I completely love 95% of what you have done, 4% I am unsure of but am willing to see how it plays out, but 1%... the grinding for silver... well, I can't do that.  I already play cRPG as much as I can, and I don't want to start with 150k less silver than the people who have a lot of time and are willing to play DTV.

id hope whoever is in charge of making these lists has the 9 brain cells necessary to distinguish the difference from authentic skill versus someone crutching on there level. also its retarded to base it off of strat as those fucking battles last hours and in order to "have the largest impact" youd have to play through those in its entirety and show up at the start in order to top frag. you could diversify it by the duel tournies (cough cough) or host a fuckin 4v4 tourny or something

Strat feeds this game, whether you like it or not.  Every time strat stopped, NA1 stopped.  4 vs 4 tourneys don't drive this game, Strat does.  An awesome dueler is good for defending/capping flags or for hanging out on the flanks.  Guys who fight in a group, oddly enough, are good for fighting in a group.  They are the guys you run to in a big battle.  Just be the diversion while they kill.  And some guys just know where to be in a big battle.  If they run, you should run too.

And I don't believe in level crutching.  It gives them a small bonus.  I don't whine when a level 32 beats my level 30.  If you really believe that a lvl 36 can only survive because of their level, well then, you must admire their patience in keeping the same character for years and dying and dying and dying until they could finally reach the levels they could kill people at.

Most of the people I have talked to were pretty happy with their results, maybe claiming to be 1 or 2 levels higher.  I was just ecstatic that I wasn't the lowest tier.  I do adequately in NA1, but horrible in strat.  It could be because people know my banner and see an easy kill.

I am very happy I made the C tier.  I think I do adequately on NA1 70% of the time, yet in strat battles I just fail, fail, fail.

But I don't think I am terrible, its just that pretty much everyone who plays is very, very, very good.  And all you 'heroes' should remember that.  Without us lower tier gents and the odd noob who foolishly tries to join this game your scores would not be as awesome as they are.

Top 5 people who betrayed The One True Ruler of All chadzia (erm, that's me dumbasses):

5)Viscount (or whatever his name is now- he's changed it about 40 times.. and so would I if I talked shit like him): Appointed by James as a sort of tribute, he was supposed to follow my army on campaign.  He didn't.  He Quick Marched everywhere and wouldn't listen to a thing I said despite being noob.  He explained how he knew much more than me.  More of an idiot that a traitor I guess.

4)Bruttus: Joined the 13K in it's infancy, then essentially tried to usurp power from me.  Took all the members to tell him to fuck off before he quit.  Then he joined HCE and posted extremely odd and pathetic and embarrassingly stupid crap, making us look worse than we actually were.

3)JayJrod: Was a freakin hero for the faction, but then he felt bad he pretty much single handedly defeated a Mirthrim 2K shiny army attacking a peasant village.  So he took Yruma Castle (which I had just gifted him for his valiance) and handed it over to the Evil Mithrim bunch.  Because they played other games together.  I would have been more pissed off, but it led to some of the greatest manoeuvring and counter manoeuvring ever seen in Strat.  And, despite the clever moves by the Mithrim bunch, we out smarted them and probably would have won back the castle if not for

2)sJimmy: At the very beginning he screwed up by not having his night time settings when we tried recap Yruma castle.  Due to a gawdawful 4 am battle or something, I just ceded the attack and let JayJrod keep is ill gotten castle.  Then I gave sJimmy Curaw, and he reset it to crap gear, and eventually left Curaw (which he was kind enough to leave to me) and attacked my vassals.  Of course, he was just following the orders of

1)Dutchy: Pretty much surrendered when I first attacked him; we turned it into an XP fight.  Little did I know he only accepted my suzerainty to buy time.  Acre had been constantly attacking his fiefs, so by joining me, that stopped.  Then he talked me into giving Sjimmy Curaw, and to keep the peace, I did.  Then I spent the rest of my time trying to keep the peace between Acre and his people.  Then he went to Europe, and came back with massive shiny armies.  He then plotted with the Mithrimers to all attack at the same time.  It worked.  Being drunk, I got stupid angry and said fuck it and acted like a whiny child and let my possessions fall.  We got crushed... but, still love the guy, and he probably is the best strat player out there, but, being Australian, he has no honour.

Honourable Mention-  King James of Acre: Well, not actually a traitor, but made my life miserable by constantly telling me sJimmy and Dutchy were going to betray me.  Every time I gave them something, he bitched and whined and tried throw monkey wrenches in the works.  I even tried him for treason, but his lawyer got him off.  But those 3 am steam messages telling me I was a dumbass loser who was destroying cRpg got old.  I guess it was less treachery and more prescience.

So, sorry for living in the past, but that was probably the only chance I had of owning a swathe of the map.  We all know my fighting skills are not too inspiring, and my leadership leaves a lot to be desired, and my BO is curious at best.  But from what I've read and seen, it was probably the most dramatic Strat ever.  Novel worthy, I'd say, but then Rando would tear a strip off me for being too RPish.  Fuckin Rando- any word on when he'll be banned next?

I still don't understand why throwers were nerfed to the ground while unhistorical and unbalanced long mauls are a thing.

Every time Bryggan complains about throwing nerfs I personally nerf his throwing another 10%
C'mon James, you know I suck at melee, so at least I used to get points with a lucky throw or two.

But now I'm hooked on Post Scriptum.  WW2 extremely team based game, and very, very immersive if you are a WW2 buff.  Not very arcadey, so if you like run and gun you won't like this.

I am actually trying this thing called "Real Life".
Not a big thing at tje start, but after crpg's death i've got some joy with it, actually i am stucking at some lvls and wish crpg was back  :cry:
I tried that, but while the graphics are good I found advancement too hard... no matter how much I grind.

Out of boredom I hopped on DTV.  I see throwing was nerfed even further.  Just trying to fuck over the hybrids.  6 ammo is not a lot, especially since the slow moving throwing weapons are easy to dodge when a player is aware of them.  They are designed to kill fleeing archers... and slow down 2 hand tin cans.  It takes like 5 chest shots to kill a tin can with masterwork jarids.

My advice is go back to vicinity xp.  That would nerf range since they would miss out on a lot of xp.  It's also great for new players and low level gents since they can jump in the battle and gain good xp for the little they can contribute.

I tried playing native, and it sucks- just a range fest.  So I'm gonna attack AFK fiefs until you fuckers fight me.  The Mad Emperor is back!
