I personally think this will be the most likely strategy to actually happen, because it is the simplest and also involves the least speculation about magical abilities. The other ideas seem possibly a little far-fetched and make their respective magics seem OP (well, weapon spam is also totally plausible but would IMO be a lame strategy that still results in losses). The one possible vulnerablity/limiting factor is where doubles can go. It would probably require Lloyd at least going afield far more often, perhaps with Pierce in tow. That will be a very uncomfortable strategy for Jetstone, especially if they still believe Misty is alive. However this is exactly what makes me think Tram will do it...he's going for the "uncomfortable" strategy.Shai_hulud wrote:Clone Troopers: Dittoed troops don’t leave corpses behind. Only use dittoed troops when fighting against the enemy. Since your own troops are going to croak anyway, they can be spent without real loss, but can’t be recovered by the enemy. Since the enemy can only decrypt their own soldiers once, you can deplete their assets by attrition. If the enemy is brought to a halt, they can be negotiated with. And even if they can’t, this opens them to being flanked by allied empires like Sofa King, Fox Mud, TV, Faq, and Hobbittm.
I see where you are coming from on that, since everyone knows that Gobwin Knob was naturally losing that battle. Without Parson's help they had no hope; that's always been very clear, and that's why you say that Gobwin Knob was losing, but unfortunately we never actually got to see Gobwin Knob losing a straight infantry-versus-infantry battle. As soon as Ansom's infantry broke through the wall Parson was ready to repel them with dance fighting. We never got to see what Parson could have done if he'd had nothing but infantry to work with, since Parson wouldn't let any advantage go to waste. I agree that without Wanda's dance fighting or any other kind of extra support, Ansom's unled infantry would probably have easily wiped out Gobwin Knob, but unfortunately we'll never actually know.0beron wrote:Yeah, the courtyard press DID work, you are starting your analysis too late in the game. GK was losing the Courtyard Press....so they had to call in Wanda to Dance-Fight. So it was Gk who needed caster support first. The RCC then re-leveled the playing field by adding caster support of their own so both sides were dance-fighting....and then immediately began winning again.
