  • Cka Vs 300 (CR's Only)

    This thread is for players from Cka, 300 and its associates.

    I've made the thread now upon request due to some members wishing to post their initial attacks.

    Be sure there will be plenty in this war.

    Good Luck again too all, and remember this tread is only for posting combat reports.

    After this initial post, any reply's by users which do not contain combat reports, will be warned.

    edit: i do believe there is a combat report converter in the tools section you can use

    He moved all his resources to another city. too bad that one is being raided as we speak :D will come back with another CR soon

    Edit: nope, no more CR's! The Honorable 300 player destroyed all his ports in all his cities. Guess i'll just have to plunder other 300 now :D

    The post was edited 1 time, last by ParazituTM ().

  • Respect Deadly Winn from 300 for not destroying his ports. However he is now open for business I've eliminated 76000 of his 106000 general pts. I've hit all his towns and Now have a New largest Pillage EVER. 57 shiploads in a single hit.

    I started off hitting his other towns, he got pissed and blindly sent his entire army to attack The Danforth with no navy to blockade. I set a nice trap for him he now has 96 out of 434 units left. I lost 30.

    First, while he was attacking me I sent an army to his vacated town and got this in return:

    my other pillage missions to his towns already netted 30000 gold, 10000wood, 3000 marble, 5000 wine and 3000 crystal.

    Then when his troops landed I had a nice big army waiting for him.


    and

    P.S. I know his town names say "LAW xxx" but he is in the 300 Alliance. You'd have to ask him why that is...
