Winter Battles

We are in the winter battles phase of this initiative. Henry will be digging for you a pair of Winter Event Awesomia battles with special winter themed prizes! (The Green Letter for the disfavored side will remain in place)

Idaho's attack has already happened where 30 brave Fort Fighters defended the fort against 37 daring attackers. It was an exciting battle with surprising lines of site, unfamiliar tactics and the outcome that remained in doubt deep into the battle!

In pre-winter battles, only the Attackers of Fairbank were able to prevail resulting in their Soldier Tower being upgraded to level 2

And now for a little news on the upcoming Valentines battles phase of this initiative.

Details still need to be worked out, but STARTING NOW we will be keeping track of fort fight activity on each world.
To encourage more regularly attended battles, each world that maintains a streak of 10 days* of completed fort fights with at least 10 participants on each side of the battle, will have a small amount of bonus Hearts added to normal battles!

*We well be flexible and generous on the timing of battles -- a battle that completes between 00:00 and 07:00 will be counted toward whichever day keeps the streak going

Congratulations Attackers of Juarez! Their 45 guns were too much for the 34 stalwarts who tried to hold them off but all ultimately perished.

In the next battle the Gate will be level 2. It might not be much but with the incentive moving to the defenders who knows...

HEADS UP!
I plan to schedule a NO BONUS AWARD extra GM battle on ALL WORLDS
It will begin 15 minutes before the Valentines Day event so should complete inside the window when STANDARD valentines hearts will be awarded

You won't get any extra rewards, but you'll start the event with a bang! (and a nice cache of Hearts if a decent number of people show up ;) )

Reminder:
the battles in this initiative are (largely) part of:
"""
1) Rolling Awesomia Digs:
Every day (that he is up to it) Henry NPC will dig an Awesomia battle. He will rotate through the worlds The battle will be 2 days out at a similarly rolling time between 18:00 and 24:00 (Dakota's at 23:00, El Dorado at 23:59, Fairbank at 18:00). Each world should end up with 2-3 battles per month and over time will see battles on all seven days of the week and all 7 timeslots.

In addition to regular reward, the "disfavored" side (whichever side had fewer participants the previous battle) will receive a bonus award after the fact (generally speaking a 25 bond letter, but this may be revised to increase or decrease the incentive over time)

To make things even more interesting, starting with the dig on Fairbank, Awesomia's Towers walls and gate will be reduced to level 1. Each time attack prevails on a given world a random structure will be upgraded. Watch those Lines of Sight! They may not be what you are used to
"""

In the interest of better battles I have taken some liberties with the "order" and the "2 days out" to accomodate player digs of awesomia, timing on the fort downgrades, and openings in daily dig schedules

Congratulations Attackers of Colorado!

Even though the Defenders were able to recruit 96 fighters to their side, the wall of 106 attackers scared too many of them off.
Ultimately the 77 guns that showed up to defend were no match for the firepower of the 95 attackers who came calling and some wily offies were allowed to capture the flag

In the next battle the Dueler's Tower will be level 2. It might not be much but with the incentive moving to the defenders who knows...

Alas, Las Vegas had a very good streak going but it broke today when only 7 attackers showed up.
No worries; dig today, start a new one and the rewards can flow!

Congratulations Attackers of Fairbank!

Despite the Level 2 Soldier Tower, Their 50 guns were too much for the 37 stalwarts who tried to hold them off but ultimately could not defend the flag.

In the next battle the Gate will be level 2, and the incentive might be a bit higher.

Congratulations Defenders of Kansas! 56 defenders not only repelled the 54 attackers but managed to leave no one on the attack to tell the tale of their defeat.

Congratulations Defenders of Arizona! although 27 had to give their lives, 52 defenders were enough to hold off the 50 attackers, 9 of which managed to scurry away.
