Magpie Strategy
« on: March 08, 2021, 05:57:28 AM »

Hi guys,

Any tips with regards to a decent Magpie strategy... It sounds delicious and similar to the old Gnome..

Sorry but it's been a while.. A bit rusty.

Thanks in advance!

I haven't used Magpie since I first came, but I mostly used the strat layed out here: http://www.redwallwarlords.com/forums/index.php?topic=13859.0

Couple notes:
1) I ended up using more of a leader strat because for much of that set, it seemed the only way for me to make successful land grabs.
2) Tax Evasion is your friend, so make sure your leader ratio is on point as that'll make your land grabs less taxing (go figure), works identically to Rain Dance.
3) Someone else here might have a better strategy for really capitalizing on the public market, to gain a more competetive edge in the long game :P

  • Uiblis: ya balance is for sure something im looking to tackle
    March 31, 2021, 06:04:18 PM
  • Uiblis: though I also think the game is pretty daunting and unintuitive to pick up for a new player
    March 31, 2021, 06:05:26 PM
  • Uiblis: i personally feel like one of the toughest parts is the lack of cohesiveness that drives any feeling of improvement
    March 31, 2021, 06:05:50 PM
  • Uiblis: you just kind of fritter away turns until someone teaches you some basic strategies, but I want that to lead to more interactive, emergent gameplay

  • JesterAverageJoe: I know this has been something a number of very intelligent, & exceedingly perceptive developers have been trying to figure out for years. Makes me wish there wasn't so much bad blood between the different communities & circles, so that maybe a mature discussion could be shared~

  • windhound: One of the coolest thing about RWL in the beginning was there was no meta.
    March 31, 2021, 06:24:12 PM
  • windhound: Everyone was sorta flailing around, so it didn't take much to be average at the game when most everyone was terrible at it.

  • windhound: Now it's basically like joining a CS or Halo server that's been up for years, those left playing have super optimized strats and it's tougher to just jump in.

  • JesterAverageJoe: in a way, I feel like one of the only ways to marry the Prom functions w/ mobile interfaces would be to have some 3rd party/intermediary java program... Certainly not ideal where entry is concerned~

  • Uiblis: nahh
    March 31, 2021, 09:21:48 PM
  • Uiblis: prob just rebuild the whole ui from scratch in react/react native and overhaul the look while im at it
    March 31, 2021, 09:22:30 PM
  • Uiblis: never liked the ui, it was messy af and didnt distill the important info out
    March 31, 2021, 09:22:55 PM
  • Uiblis: been writing a lot of rust recently so might give that a shot for the backend
    March 31, 2021, 09:23:23 PM
  • Uiblis: either way theres 0 chance i use any existing code
    March 31, 2021, 09:23:59 PM
  • Ryu: You should sign up this round Uiblis. You run a pretty mean wolf from what I remember.

  • windhound: Sorry if the site's a little flakey today guys, ASO is having issues with their nameservers.  I've put a fix in, but DNS propogation can take a few hours.

  • Uiblis: it's been a while, ill give it q shot
