    yea i chose you because you looked like the juiciest target in vd and i thought you would have level 19 fields. im glad i finally saw that report, i spent many hours building and worrying about that little hammer haha. did you ever rebuild the fields?

    SBH, thank you so much for letting me play that account. Think I was on it for about 4 months. You set up a nice account to play and I went crazy building troops. Couple of the croppers made for a nice garage (ones that weren't set up to build troops) The account went to good use, it kept our hemon scrolls and plans safe on top of the standing defense there was already in place. Thank you for not deleting it

    Yeah, i rebuilt the fields, but only to level 18. It is just the way i do things and it worked for me. Most servers i usually dont build level 19s, but some i have and even gotten higher. I guess it depends on what I'm doing. Surprisingly enough though, when i play anvil, i usually build my fields up more. (level 18s this round as a hammer, but all 19s last round as a anvil)
    Retired as of 10/13/14 after 7 and a half years of playing. Good luck to those who continue to play.

    Hey, better then being in an oasis i guess.
    So I'm an idiot and lost 1/3 of my EGH hiding in a local cap oasis. So what. Sometimes you have to gamble and make a play that they would think you're too smart to make. I gambled and lost. Not like the Frenchie WW won it for GOB.

    One things i would decidedly like to commend GOB on is not necessarily the AMOUNT of EGH's that they came in o endgame with....but the overall high degree of quality that they brought to the table. Getting a player to store their hammer is hard enough....but getting them to do it, and build and EGH properly is something entirely different.

    Perhaps you had a level of experienced hammers returning to this server that we couldn't compete with. But this is the second server in a row that I've helped organize endgame for...and at times it's like herding ducklings with ADHD.

    Good play, GOB
    I'm pretty sure it was established earlier on the forums that the Taz that played in the SE was NOT the same Taz that you had a torrid hate-affair with on s5

    It was my first EGH, and although it wasn't among the top guns, I'm pretty happy with it. I have to say, though, that it wouldn't be half that size if not for the help and advice from the leadership. In my case it was rawhide and yorba I worked most with regarding the EGH. That, and of course the 1/2 wheat artifact, probably contributed the most to the relative quality of GOB EGH's.

    Gratz to you, then. You produced an excellent EGH, which is not as easy a task as some folks assume.

    The use of the account-wide 1/2 wheat affect was near-perfect. MY only suggestion would be to not broadcast it so clearly next time by naming all the villages used as hammer storage with a "z" in the beginning...it's a pretty clear attempt to group them together at the bottom of your account overview.

    I don't think that mattered much. Just the fact of having so many croppers away from their cluster was a giveaway as to what they were for. The 'z' didn't do much more than that. But definitely a really good use for it. Most just leave it for a hammer. Anvils make much better use of it.
