So anyway, now there's this thing going on in Jetstone. It looks like Jetstone "aint gonna last nine turns", and they've been taking all the knocks from GK since Unaroyal disbanded. If and when Jetstone go down, who's next to take the hits? Faq? Jittari? TV? As far as we can piece together, they are the three closest sides. Faq wouldn't even be there if not for Don, and that would leave them with a 50/50 chance of taking a massive GK load, in the face.
Looks like Jillian is about to eat it actually. And I'm guessing the non-royals and Haggar have enough brainpower to attempt to get an alliance (or at least get terms) and I bet Parson will accept an alliance with less then perfect terms. And after Jillian pops like a pinata, Jetstone will take it for the reasons they are already taking it.
So yeah, they are stretched to the limits fending off Carpool, but at least that all they have to worry about, so long as they keep propping up GK's enemies until one of them actually wins.
Of course, this all falls apart when you point out what a nut-job Jillian is, but its all he had to work with... It was a solid plan.
It would be a solid plan if Don would accept defeat and ask GK to bail them out. It didn't work. Its over he lost. Now accept the fact that you need to make a deal with the devil to not die to carpool. And he should have kept a tighter leash on Jillian. See that thinkamancer? She can put a suggestion on Jillian.
I think its a matter of perspective. It's easy to cry foul when Jillian quit the field early (and yeah, I agree that was pretty naughty of her), but remember that if not for some pretty exceptional circumstances then things would be very very different right now.
Agree with this. Disagree with what the different result would be. If Charlie didn't provide FAQ super spell, giants, and a turnamancer, Jillian and her airforce would have been splattered by GK on their way to the tower.
If Jillian didn't have spanky feelings for Wanda, she would have finished the job.
Her chief warlord thought that the GK forces would have crushed them. And he decided that with his magic earmuffs, so we know he actually knew what he was talking about. She might
have done some damage. Or it might have ended poorly and GK gotten even stronger. Worse case senario is that Jillian is captured and GK blackmails another FAQ unit into moving Wanda down to the garrison. From their the falling exploit can procede without a risk of Wanda croaking. I think fleeing was the correct desision for her side, the RCCII, and Translovito.
If Jillian had loved Wanda more than Ansom, she'd have captured her, and left.
have turned Wanda. Or she might have failed and then gotten herself splattered by the GK airforce. And remember what she wanted to do with her brand new Wanda? Crush Jetstone.
If Wanda had captured Tramennis (or anyone else) instead of Ossomer, then Ossomer would still be CWL and would have blasted GK out of the sky, exploit or no.
First the Parley does seem to be SOP. Even if he didn't wait for the parley its not like shooting down GK would have been quick. They still would have had the time they needed to move and drop. And Parson had enough time to plan because the Jetstone forces needed to return to the city. Nor would have Ossomer reacted quite as well as Tram. One slip up at that point and your easily looking at a wipe.
If it turned out that AcidPoo couldn't melt the top of the Atrium, then no exploit.
If Wanda failed her falling roll and croaked on impact, GK loses.
True, but on the first one there I question your logic. There are a lot of things that if GK was missing they would lose. How is that luck?
If Antium hadn't taken a shaft from behind by his own men, then Wanda would be KIA.
Doubt it. There were two casters, at least one of which is a good melee fighter. And a dwagon. Remember the last time a warlord had a caster cornered like this? Sizemore splattered the warlord.
