I'm a huge fan of fantasy and my favorite part about it is the use of magic and how it can turn the tide of a battle instantly. I was wondering because my favorite race are the elves if there were any people out there that would like to make a mage guild of some sort. We can bring together a group of the strongest elven armies to take down the opposing races. If any elven mages are interested just message me or post in the thread. Let us unite and together bring peace to the world of DoF using the power of elven magic and the cold hard steal of our swords and spears!:p

Out of my cold dead hands you will conquer all other races... elves are an abomination and must be wiped out :p

So basically you want to form a guild/pre-arranged alliance.

Ya, I want to bring together a group of elf players who would be willing to form an alliance or a guild. It doesn't matter about skill mainly because the game hasn't come out yet. I just want to be able to communicate and play with some other elf players out there.

I, personally like mages in general. And in this game, I suppose my favourite faction would be the Elves. The problem I see is that RTS games lack the RPG element whereby one can associate themselves with one single player (i.e. an Elven Mage.) All players are, essentially, disposable units, or cannon fodder, put bluntly. Hero units would work, however. So if there was a hero mage, or a clan/guild of 'hero' mages within the storyline, or implemented in the game, then this would shape out in accordance to the OP's wishes. I would still consider the proposal, however. Just wish to see how imaginative others are here. :)

Any comments by RWS on the above?

That's what I'm hoping for as well, I want to be able to create my Hero from scratch basically, give it the stats I want and the spells that I would like to see it use. I did hear though that you start off with one hero and they would be the general to your army. So maybe getting a few players who have Elven mages as there general could work in the sense of making a guild. Well I hope to play with you once this game comes out.

I agree, even though I will play Elves, I will enjoy eliminating them. They're a bit too pansy for me. :D

hehe :) im willing to bet there will be predominantly elven population after a while, my prediction is that many will start human to learn the game (less of a learning curve generally) and will then switch to elves, or they will begin as elves and will later switch to others for the experience... after a while i think at least 40% will be elves and about the same or a little lower would be human... orcs i cant see many people going... but they offer an interesting playing style so its hard to guess :)

humans will have to out number or at least equal the more popular race

i dont expect that many ork players but i do expect them to be pro

alot of players go human simply because they are human xD

It's a bit impractical to form a group around the "mage" concept since this is a strategy game but supposedly those high elves that live in the mountainous region are avid magic users so they seem to fit the idea best.

I don't like committing myself to a "guild", especially before the games is out but I expect I'll be open to the idea of the Highborn sticking together against all the haterz. :)

Represent! Again, I just like their units but most importantly, their castles. I'm interested in more of the aesthetic features but once the game comes out or the beta, I will be interested in seeing how the units work as well.

Me too, cuz they're the most unique (after dragons ... :( ) and because who doesn't like eating eveyone ? :)

I just can't wait til the epic siege battles. It's gonna be fun fending off hundreds of orcs or humans from my forest stronghold. I can just see it right now, orcs and humans alike dying under the rain of arrows and magic unsheathed upon them.

But I want to exploit our advantages :p , It will be a lot of fun with those swordsmen though. I hope they're making the elven weapons and armour exquisite. I'm intrigued to find out what the elves will end up looking like once the whole game is done.

All 3 factions have self unique playing styles in everything, but yea people who have played bfme1 and any age of ... games will be more at home with humans at first.

Elves are by far the most powerful unit vs unit faction, but they are very expensive.
