Clan War Report
Since last season, there's been a slight increase in the number of clan wars. Despite everything there has been a lot of movements of players between the different clans, we also have 2 new active clans, the revival of 'Aristokrats' and 'Illyria' which has become much less active this season. So here is a match between Mortal Kombat and Kangz SZN.
Representing Mortal Kombat we have Eagle, W4R_MaChINE and Franz. Mortal Kombat is a powerful and ancient clan known to almost all, with time they lost some players and are now only 12, but they still won the first place in the last season and are 3rd in the current season. Eagle picked Turkey, W4R_MaChINE Spain and Franz Germany.
Over to the Kangz SZN side now we have Nero, Kaska and Froyer. Kangz SZN is a recent coalition created one month ago by 4nic and is in second place of the season. Nero took the United Kingdom, Kaska France and Froyer Ukraine.
In the east, Froyer decided to stack Russia Central, Russia Northwest and Belarus aswell as successfully walling Poland and Hungary, this will slow Turkey in his progress. For his part Eagle captured Greece, stacked Serbia and Romania with his general. We are never too careful. In the west, W4R_MaChINE walled Bilbao and attacked Rome but with apprently not enought tanks or with another strategy than lucky bastard, Kaska rushed Italy too with all his troops and who as for him appears to be playing Lucky Bastard, hard blow for Spain who loses his general and all his army in the first round. On the other side, Nero took Benelux and Norway, but Franz had predicted the move to Norway and thus stuck Nero's units with his wall. Franz walled his cities so as to make a line to prevent a rush on his German cities and opts for a classic expansion. He goes for Czech, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia aswell as Sweden and let his general in Berlin to protect him.
This turn, not many changes, the players are almost staying on the defensive, except in the east, where Froyer took the previously walled countries and attacked Serbia to put pressure on Turkey who, for his part, exapanded in all the neutrals countries around. Eagle also played aggressively, indeed, he broke the kiev wall, letting Froyer's capital open, he also sent a good part of his army in Moldova and Odessa, who thus deprives him of its most important city, Ukraine could be rushed next turn. In the same time Eagle decide to latemove Rome but failed it only by 1 unit. In the west, Spain tried to block Kaska units with his wall to prevent him from returning to Italy, probably anticipating that Kaska would have rushed to his Spanish cities and that Eagle would take Rome successfully. But that is not what happened, Kaska preferred to take the northern Italian cities, to be able to come back to defend Paris later if needed, as well as Naples. Nero and Franz both tried to put wall in the north sea, who is a key passage for them, but as a result they mutually split each other and therefore failed. They also each broke their walls, Franz invaded Denmark who was neutral and Nero managed to capture Munich with Luxembourg's units aswell as Cologne.
In the following turn, probably fearing a rush from Eagle, Froyer defended Kiev with 28 units, holds up in the Balkans and continued to expand on neutrals. Turkey didn't make the most obvious move and go for the Ukrainian cities, while defending its ports, to be able to rush Ukraine next turn or defend ankara if its wall had been broken. As planned, Kaska defended his French and Paris cities, just in case, while he continues to take his Italian cities. Spain tried to form a big wall but got attacked by Nero causing him to lose Bilbao, another city and also fail his wall because of Nero's transport. Nero also continued to scrounge Franz's territory by taking another city and Denmark. Franz has decided to defend Hambourg and Berlin, so he will be able to rush London or Paris if he want next turn, since Paris wall failed, or just force them to defend it to slow them down and give time to Spain or retake his cities for example.
This is the moment of reinforcement and also a bad turn for Mortal Kombat, Eagle had just a minute to play his turn, maybe a connection problem or failed something and refreshed? In any case, whatever he tried to do it did not work and he lost his general. A bad turn for Franz too who rushed London but failed by only 2 units, it was risky but it could have worked, being anyway not in very good posture he had to try something. Nero and Froyer even had enough units to continue to take more land from Franz and neutrals aswell as Slovakia and Bosnia, respectivly. at this moment we can say that to exclude a miracle, the game is won by the Kangz SZN.
Indeed, they left, the game is over... Good game everyone!
As often, this turned out to be quite a fast paced Coalition War
