Congratulations to (dvF) Nawti Lola on achieving Emperor of Game of War!
July 2017 Super Wonder
July Super Wonder was unique and much tougher than recent events. It required a would be Emperor to equip every advantage available to them. However, the timing of this Super Wonder fell just a day or two after Troop Gear Level upgrades released. Those 200 troop levels made a huge impact on rally strength. Only a handful of players were ready in time.
Nawti Lola’s team, was the exception. They crushed this Super Wonder!
Team ONE – The Dynasty Continues
Real Tips and MGd alliance had the distinct pleasure of assisting Team ONE again this Super Wonder! We managed to place 2nd behind the superb Lola team. Mr. Angry 1 of Team ONE finished 5th. He was able to finish the required upgrades just before we ported to the Super Wonder to assist XxCtessexXDN.
Debate has plagued Team ONE this Super Wonder. Did (ONE) XxCtessexXDN’s higher hero levels and VIP actually boost stats at Super Wonder?
In Super Wonders of the past, certain features in Game of War are not allowed at the Super Wonder. For example, ultimate execution, mobile traps, and solos have all been disallowed at one time or another. Some are still disallowed.
These higher levels are not achievable by ordinary means. It requires a special type of player.
But like Everest, extraordinary people climb it, because it’s there. Same goes for these higher VIP and Hero levels. Some players see that as a great challenge. The first great challenge in Game of War for a long time.
XxCtessexXDN, accepted that challenge and achieved higher VIP and Hero levels. However, did you know she also unlocked T8 troops. How did she do it? There’s only 4 shards in a pack and it requires millions to unlock. So, no, she didn’t buy millions of packs. Instead, she played the game and hit monsters for days for the Wind Shards required for the research.
No other player to my knowledge has T8 unlocked, but they could if they wanted it badly enough.
Back to the Super debate.
So, in Hero 111, 112, 113, 114, the skills give a player vastly superior stats at the Wonder. Based on those additional stats, Hero 110 would stand no chance against Hero 114. However, the battle reports prove the hits on Hero 114 at SW were nearly identical to those of our other rally leaders at hero 110. In fact, mid way through Super Wonder MGd achieved Hero 111 and we noticed no difference in reports. So, maybe stats for Hero levels 111 and above weren’t applied in the SW..
At any rate, the SW is over and by the next VIP and Hero levels will officially announce and indeed apply.
A good maxed account is only the starting point of a successful Emperor of Game of War run.
Battle of the Mobile Traps
Mobile traps were used this SW. Players used mobile traps to have any chance at taking the wonder. Mobile trap stats are pretty incredible now. It made for a unique experience at the Super Wonder.
The battles at this SW were such that very few troops if any were lost if the team sent a good mix of troops and tier 6 or tier 7 traps. So, because teams sent lower tier traps, this is where the battle took place.
Last SW, mobile traps were used and players added siege to defend against them. However, this SW the stats were such that siege did not do as well. Also, siege adds march time. However, distance to the Super Wonder was less important. In other words, porting to a close spot was less important. This Super Wonder required players to set their best rally attempt and charge the SW. If they took the SW then its likely they held for 20 – 30 minutes the first day. Not many teams were running that were capable to taking the throne from one of these first day teams. In the past it was about who hit the SW the most often with a few second hold each time.
Not this time – you had to come up with a plan to defeat the defender. Lola’s team had it figured out pretty quickly.
Super Wonder Strategy and Execution
Planning, execution, and toughness wins the Super Wonder. Honestly, it comes down to who wants it the most.
Who will sit through the pain of sleep deprivation and eyes falling out of your head to get the crown?
This Super Wonder required one or two “blocking” teams ahead of your emperor to “soften” the Super Wonder. The timing must be such that the Super Wonder receives no reinforcements between the time your blockers hit and your Emperor.
Ten minute march times and ever-changing debuff gear makes it very difficult to line up three different rallies seconds apart. Despite all obstacles Lola’s teams consistently took the Super Wonder. Superb job!
We’d love to hear from those players who assisted Nawti Lola. In fact, it’d be great to hear from Emperor Nawti Lola! 🙂 Darkthorne may be reached on Line App: darkthorne.
Congratulations to all participants this July SW. You survived a very tough battle!
