Watch and see how it turns out.

There was moments of slow time, so if you get to it, just speed it up. Plenty of fighting in this 50 minute game. GG Pop_N_Fresh. Hard fought.

Needs patch...

Blamer Well, I just spent 50 minutes watching this. As the description implies, it's the classic David and Goliath rivalry of a Norse player vs. a Greek Poseidon civ. I don't want to spoil the ending for you, but I will say that there are many times where it looks like the match will swing either way. Unlike most games, this one stretches into heavy Heroic/Mythic combat. I would also invite those who complain about building strength (one way or the other) to watch this game and see defensive buildings used properly -- as army support -- and improperly. There are some good and interesting tactics and counters to these tactics employed as well.

(This also gives you a pretty decent example of the Thor dwarf build strategy, though if that's what you're looking for there's already another recorded game on here made specificially for that purpose.

Nevertheless, this is a long game, and a lot of it is contested over the same few patches of ground. Also, IMO the Greek player made some strange decisions that delayed the final outcome of the game for a good while. I also found myself shouting some advice at the Norse to no avail, particularly at one point when they had a big surplus of wood, maxed out favor and over 3000 gold, a secure town, and yet had no longhouses or temples. Of course, it's easy to make this kind of criticism when you're passively watching the game, without the stress involved.

Also, the ending is not particularly gratifying; there's no grand battle of Armageddon here, the combat just kind of sputters out at the end. Of course, I suppose that's practically the only way a drawn out game like this can end.

Overall, I recommend that you check this out, but you might want to leave it on Very Fast for most of the game.

Yeah... after I watched the game myself (and later in the game), I did realize I had no Longhouses. Which is the reson why I suddenly pumped like 7 of them. I could of also beaten him earlier if I remember I had Ranged siege in the Mythic :p. Also if I had stayed closer to me Fountain, I could of held longer to push him back. Should of made those Trolls too when I had the wood and favor. I guess the Huskarls worked...

Many miskates I hope not to make again heh..

I dont see it in my Recorded Games section, but when I changed it to RCX File extention, It does although the game is pretty screwd. all I see is villagers standing on the spot doing absolutley nothing. I think its because I changed the file to RCX. but what am I supposed to do now? how do I make it work?
