Hear me, Hear me! The Warlord Otomotopia is seeking like minded leaders of all races to join under one banner! With his guiding hand, we will make our stake in this world with the tool of WAR. Set aside your differences, friends, and take up arms with him, for honor, glory, and wealth! Take up arms with Clan Dominion!

Forward from Clan Dominion's leader:

With the recent outbreak of guild activity, I have decided to take action and start organizing a group of players to join with me to make a name for ourselves. Your knowledge and merit will determine your place in this guild, nothing else. I recognize the benefits of having multiple races and homelands in one guild- giving players the opportunity to specialize in one area will both help the group strategically and let individuals develop their own tactics. Therefore, I will accept all races into this organization.

What makes Dominion different:
The way Dominion has the advantage in war is by having members of all different races use their strengths to fill the weaknesses of others, which in turn allows members to focus on specific types of units without sacrificing an overall diversity. By having a human player focus on cavalry and anti-cavalry units, an Orc player focus on mass fodder units and siege, and an Elven player focusing on long range and elite melee units, every base is covered and players can use their units to the greatest effect, because they don't have to worry about micromanaging multiple types of units.

Dominion plans on organizing our players to support each other and therefore ourselves. Every threat to one of our player should be taken as a threat to us as a whole, and it is expected that other players come to the aid of a threatened member if they ask for it.

Dominion will be organized organized and dominate in all aspects of the game, from war to trade. We will use our combined resources and power to control the market and the land. We will also provide our power, knowledge, and resources to select players and organizations who are in our good graces for a price, determined by the contracted member and the contracts' standing with our guild.

Dominion will project its force as it sees fit, but we will always respect our diplomatic and trade agreements with other guilds and clans, as long as the agreement lasts or the terms are not broken.

To us, Dominion is your race. Therefore, Dominion will allow its members to raid as they see fit. Dominion allows and encourages the practice of attacking other players of any race, but we also highly encourage getting another member who augments your force to support your attack.

A new dawn approaches.
Dominion has risen.

Any player who wishes to publicly join Dominion or ask questions about us should post here. My PM inbox is open to questions or pledges that you may not want public.

Quite true on both aspects, but why not try and get the word out now, eh? ^^

My goal with this is to get the word out and try to start playing with any interested people to get to know their playstyle and skill levels. I do expect to get some response, and start building an infrastructure now. I'm working on a forum and logo for us, and hope to acquire a vent server after we start rolling.

Meh, i donīt know. Mulit race clan sounds nice, but big chance that it might destroy itself. Letīs be honest, a chance to screw allied elf/human over in their back while technically allied is far to alluring not to take.

That being said, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The way this guild will be set up is so that winning is much more likely then loosing, because of both organization and the benefits I've listed. Why screw over having fun, winning, and benefits?

Well, mainly because what i was expecting was more of a race war instead of races being allied with one and another. Plus its really fun backstabbing elfs in the end, those pointy eared hippies:mad:

Well, here is a list of my skills [just for the record]

- I have been a mostly off-line player, and as such, do not have too much experience against human playes
- I have played mostly Medieval style RTSs, so this is my strongpoint [Age of Empires, Rise of Rome, Age of Mythology, Age of Kings, Age of Conquerors, Battle for Middle Earth 1 & 2]
- I have been very successful on all of these games with the diff. for AI on harest [BFME2 brutal - was the most challenging - I had a hard time with that setting]
- I inted to play all three races at this point, and do not think that any of the races is nec. superior [I have not played the game - and so will withhold my opinions on this until then].
- I can turtle and boom, but I am not much of a rush player, though I am working on developing that skill as well.

Hmm. I think that is about it.

Seriously?? :eek:
I mean, wow, you really had that much trouble with brutal in BFME2?
He's a cake walk. spend it on heroes and ranged units for the initial rush, upgrade your ranged units and get spearmen and you can win. It isn't all that hard really.

On the brutal setting - I meant that it was harder in comparison to any of the other "hardest" settings for Ai in other RTS games.

Not that it hit me hard, it just took me longer to crack.

05-26-2010, 02:57 PM
Even still, it isn't all that hard to crack either. It always starts with large rush of weak units, which is good to level your best hero you can afford, until like midgame, when they're smart enough to build different units, like cavalry and siege engines, but by then you already have fully upgraded archers and probably lvl 6 hero(es). Not that hard to figure out.

Maybe your right, my judgement could be off.

In any case, I had a lot of probs with BFME2 [I just didn't like it in general] esp how weak structures and walls were. There are some good Mods for it though [the3rdage.net].

Not that hard to figure out.

Unfortunately, most players do not follow such formulas, and there is absolutely a value at not figuring out AI patterns-you learn how to adapt quickly to a situation you don't fully understand, and even better- overcome it through sheer skill, instead of a 'method.'

Thank you for listing your resume Negthareas! Even if you are not fully applying yet, I absolutely appreciate your vote of confidence and support. Let's get into contact again soon mate.

At least we desert orcs don't have to worry about it, I think we're all on the same page regardless. If you're a desert orc you live, if you're not you die. Although I may start to question how much any desert orcs that would ally them with other races deserve to live. We don't need some special alliance or guild to smell weakness and crush it. We desert orcs don't ally, we swarm. The only communication we need is "yournamehere is weak", and before you know it we're swarming over their lands. I can tell you this right now, I don't need a guild, clan, or alliance to destroy weaklings who need them so badly. We desert orcs are desert orcs for a reason, I fully expect only the most elite players to be toughing it out in the desert.

Look at it this way. My guess is there will be lots more desert orcs than that there will be orcs. Desert orcs have great melee, weak ranged and worse walls. if people were to gang up on you, your toast. You have to ally in the desert, even if you donīt want to, to ensure that you have some sort of permanent defense against the rest of those opportunists.

To fill you in, I'm the owner of a big DoF fansite DoFSource, but it is down for reconstruction right now as we're doing a complete reboot and it will feature a full guild system which will allow you to have personal pages for your guilds where you'll be able to register your members and if someone ever wants to find a guild to join they are going to look there as well, and may find yours. You'll be able to post updates and there will even be a wall of quick updates on the front page of the system which will include things such as alliance/war declarations, results of various battles, and what not else to help everyone keep up with what's going on in the DoF world right now. :)

PS: I'm surprised how big this thread got so quickly already. Damn you school! Little free time to work on DoFS.

im all for the all races part, but i dont agree on players focusing on different units. to me that sounds like players will be weak if attacked at their home front alone, and that being something that could maybe hinder the guild from making the progress it should be doing.

maybe let everyone balance their army instead and then when attacking together players could just put their units in collective groups and attack together in that way.
would require some more macroing, but dont we gamers love a challenge like that1?
