Any chance there'll be a spreadsheet where we can check we have posted our kills correctly? - even if its only a number of kills and total killed? (I have 120,771 killed in 37 kills for example)? It's easy to miss a comma.

Keep up the good work.

Yeah, it shouldn't be too hard for me to add that in.

Anyone know if it is possible to retrieve old reports? I didn't realize they disappeared so quick and missed a few from like 10 days ago Cry...

As far as I know they can only be retrieved if they have been sent to someone. If they have then you might be able to get them using either the in-game mail or combat reports api's.

Are you collecting all the rare animal parts though? We should make the next one a hunting/gathering tourney Wink

In competitions, competitors should interact with each other. We've been very quiet - not even trash talk! So here's my strategy for this competition: In each of my outpost towns, I built a second Foreign Office (because of the new crafting researches I had previously demolished one building in each town anyway) That was three towns with two FOs giving me sight of 220,000 squares (I didn't hunt from my Tallimar towns as they're 'war ready'). I don't scout - I send out only elite T2 cav with boar spears (5 by 40 for a legion of rats) and I expect ratios of 100:1. I scan the whole 220k squares twice a day and send at nearly all legions up to 12h out - no to buildings and scuttlers. I send at hosts up to 4hrs away and at everything within an hour of me. So far I have killed 120 legions and 48 hosts. The rest comes from dribs and drabs. I'm not able to draw many conclusions about the other hunters other than Danger Ross - looking at the increase in his attack score, he has not altered his pattern for the competition and given the big difference in his XP increase versus his number of kills, I think he is hunting Underworld legions?

Anyone else care to share their experiences?

Sure HucBold I'll share mine...
Must say it has been rough. I am not trilled about my progress at all. 75568 for 348 reports, that is trash. My area does not have big spawns and has low spawn rate. I am surprised that I was able to get to 75568 casualties. I have to spend an hour sending out troops from each town to attack npc's 2-4 hours away; only able to send them out twice a day. No time to to scout, just send. Which results in a few dead coms and troops but mostly a low kill counts. I don't have much troops to  start with and The way I am going it is not worth continuing to compete as I won't be able catch up to my competitors. I hope everyone else is having fun though Smile

After the tournament ends, I'll wait a week for people to finish submitting their reports.

You're right Huc... It's been a good number of Underworld legions or an occasional myriad for myself and Danger. I've also gone after a lot of scaled chargers and giant rats but mostly for their skins.

Final scores are now up, apologies for the delays.

Could winners (top 3 of each category) IGM me to let me know where they'd like their prizes sent. 

I'll get in touch with anyone who hasn't contacted me within a week in case they don't read the forums.

In the event that someone does not respond within 30 days of me IGMing them, their prize will be divided up and sent to those in the same league as them.
