River Jumping is still a thing
18:23:15 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

I thought zeta had fixed that....didn't realize that bug still existed and people still used it.


18:57:54 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Hirogen Hunter:

Leader of my kingdom even has a rule we all must follow: never build too close to rivers

Never really understood what that meant. 

19:04:19 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Conniving Angel:

Peoples morale codes shouldnt river jump!

19:14:32 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Fezz:

Is that on all maps?

Or certain maps?

19:41:45 Mar 7th 15 - shyers (Grandmaster Shyers):

Some bugs are just game secrets, wall jumping too

20:00:38 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Kreed The White:

River jumping has been used as far back as I can remember. In fact, the only reason Warlock won his era was because he river jumped to capture a bunch of undefended mines.

It's not like this is going to make a lick of difference. The deck is stacked heavily against us and in reality all this did was create a little excitement in what has otherwise been a very dull era.

22:41:45 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

Hasn't been dull for us......

It won't matter, I wasn't complaining. I just thought it had been fixed years ago, I didn't even know it still existed. Thought it had been fixed, but glad it isn't. 

Jester has no morale code, and we will cheat as much as possible to win! It's that important!

22:42:56 Mar 7th 15 - Mr. Garret Jax:

Dropping walls right across a river, spawning a scout, then merging into the scout. ahhh the good old days.

03:29:52 Mar 8th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

ya, that was definitely a good tactic....... i just remember so many people complaining, i thought it had been changed. Shocker to me!

15:24:38 Mar 8th 15 - Mr. Fezz:

Can you show me a screenshot please?

02:47:41 Mar 9th 15 - shyers (Mr. Shyers Tootoo):

I don't remember that being the reason warlock won

04:31:31 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Kreed The White:

He prepped on a city from the other side of the river to get into Relentless core when his army wasn't powerful enough to penetrate any of our blockers. Once in our core, he made a lot of skilled moves, but he would have never reached the core without river jumping

10:41:50 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Valhallas Clown:

Cw and bonus turned over. Also its been a long time since relent have been superpower of fant so it would have been inevitable.

12:44:12 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Kreed The White:

Relentless was still a player at the time. It wasn't until a few eras after that our wheels fell off. We were actually plowing through Legacy's core pretty well as our strongest armies were out on the field and we caught a few of their players hoarding resources. Not certain if we would have been able to hold on or not and we will never know, but river jumping instantly changed that era and there is no dispute about it. 

Also, we could of easily countered BTind to swat it if he tried that. The fact was the army entered an area that wasn't close to our blockers or any of our armies so before anyone could get to it, he had absorbed a good amount of our core. You're also assuming they were capable of CW us, which at that stage of the era based on what he had in our blockers and the fact I had personally taken out their nearest MC, I think that's doubtful. 

12:58:02 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Kreed The White:

BTW I'm not saying he did anything wrong. He saw a way to help his KD and he used it. It was a strategic move and it pulled off huge for him.

19:48:33 Mar 9th 15 - shyers (Grandmaster Shyers):

When was this? When his KD was me Zond and leg?

20:23:46 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

In the current case, there wasn't a city on the river for him to attack.

21:04:57 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Fezz:

I was a screen shot people. Which map(s) lol

Glitches suck but I can't say I wouldn't use them to win lol

21:18:50 Mar 9th 15 - shyers (Grandmaster Shyers):

It's considered a less honorable tactic but it's easy to prevent.

21:26:18 Mar 9th 15 - Mr. Trolling Troll:

Shyers, I'm referencing era 13. Warlock was very skilled. Not saying he wasn't capable of winning an era and not saying it deserves an asterisk or anything. More so just using it as an example of when the technique has been used in the past.

Sherlock, it's nothing fancy. On certain maps in certain areas you can path your armies over narrow river points if you path it just right. Additionally, on certain maps if you expand cities to a certain point where the city is pretty much touching the river, you can prep the city from the other side of the river. 

I don't have images of the 2nd example unfortunately, but if you in game message me your email address, I can email you images of what waterbender did.

05:54:04 Mar 10th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

it's the original map, before all the other maps were made.

it's the first map i ever played on back in 2005. I have never seen now known there was an area of river you could walk across.

In fact, I spent about an hour after it happened to us trying to recreate the act. I couldn't. I still have no idea what path he took or how he could walk across a river. Blows my mind. Zeta should certainly fix that.

06:09:15 Mar 10th 15 - Mr. Kreed The White:

Call the man Jesus, I can't replicate it either. Guess he didn't get the name water bender for nothing.

15:25:18 Mar 10th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

seriously, i have two scouts i keep trying it with right now......i think he hacked it :)

post those screen shots so we can all see

17:33:00 Mar 10th 15 - Mr. Garret Jax:

I watched Roxbury do it a few times back in the day. He was a damn good player. That's where I got the idea.

19:02:50 Mar 10th 15 - Mr. Silly Soccer Jester:

i know all about merging across a river....but simply walking across? Never knew you could just set an army's path across a river
