All individual tournament VI square winner prizes of skyclad warriors and tournament swords have now been awarded. Sorry for the delay.

Total prizes awarded to winning players include:
1,553 Soul-Forged Blades
62,120 Skyclad warriors (1st place)
19,480 Skyclad warriors (2nd place)
6,270 Skyclad warriors (3rd place) 



You'll also notice, if you take a look at the avatar customization screen, we've added a fancy new arctic background for use. Celebrate winter in style. ;)

According to tourney thread, the Skyclads were not supposed to cost upkeep. Is this merely an oversight on the devs part?

If they continue to cost upkeep they're certainly not worth keeping. >.>

I would like to thank the devs for giving out the prizes, it has been a bit of a wait, but not as bad as it could have been.

However, like other players that have commented above; I do find the Skyclad warriors a let down.  Due to the ammount that were being given out and also the concentration of them amongst just a few alliances I had figured that they would not be all that powerfull, however as they are; the only reason for having them is merely to keep a collection of unique troops.

At the very least these units need their gold upkeep removed ( so that they will provide a little city defence with no cost).  I had personnaly expected them to have some special unique skill, like adding scout defence to armies asthough they were scouts or something.  Or maybe having a bonus when fighting against animal npc's.

As others have said, thanks for giving out the prizes, but I must admit to a little disappointment with the skyclad stats. Personally I had thought they would have some extra resistance to magic, but perhaps this couldn't be implemented in time

Thanks for the prizes ...
But the skyclads are a bit sh*tty ... and have upkeep cost!! :(
The swords that are nice, are "swords", so most commanders cannot use them, not even knigths. So, it results in a sh*** prize again!
Thanks,
TH

The "standing stones" outside my towns seemed to serve no purpose...but when tournament IV rolled around I was glad they were near me!  It's been theorized that elementals have something to do with solving the HoC mystery--perhaps the skyclad warriors have a purpose (or will have) that we haven't discovered?  I think it's a bit silly to complain, personally.  As far as troop types go...I'm an elf, but I do have a sword town for tournament purposes.  (Got tired of missing out on the party in Arran....)  Especially with the "elite" option there's no reason elf/human/orc can't have a company of swords.

The weapon issue is not so much down to the forces in your army, I doubt anyone would bother equiping a bisic soldier with them.  It more comes down to the type of commander you have.  With cavalry commanders, which is what most people have, these weapons are pretty much useless.

But they are still nice to have :)

Yeah... this is a joke?
 1 whole week attacking RES on that square... and you give us this??

So we have months on end roll by with no tourney, and people complain and complain about the fact there has been no tourney. We finally get the tourney and now people complain about the prizes. Bad form. Im glad the devs give us these tourneys so we can satisfy some bloodlust and gain some pvp experience. If we were awarded 0 prizes I still enjoyed it. 
 
Id rather spend my troops fighting against you all in a format set like this than a war where the loser will have sanctions against them. 
Thanks GM's- Shades will prep for the next one- in the meantime NPC's beware Big smile

Some of the larger npc's count as monstrous.  The undead are hiding in the rift, but I'm sure they will come out sooner or later.

Exactly--and a wardancer commander with a tournament sword could be fun!!

I agree, Duke, that it is incredibly bad form to complain about the prizes.

The issue is that as long as the skyclads cost upkeep, they are not worth keeping in your city.

Unless of course the devs are planning something which will make them usefull, but that could be a bit unfair on anyone that did not win any.  Aside from this I beleive they were not originaly meant to have an upkeep cost, so it is likely that this is a mistake.

If not they would probably be best used by sending them to the HoC.

Upkeep on the skyclads should be removed now. Sorry for the confusion.

I'm uncertain how Defy Death works on these units.

Is this like a Defy Death Level 10 for a Commander?

If not, may we have an explanation of the actual benefit?

Thank you for your consideration.

thanks luna and appreciate the unit changes.  the extra ability was a nice and unexpected change.  also i feel that since each flag had three prizes opposed to one that not only more troops were given out as prizes but that they paid out more units per prize then usual as well.  
so in the past each player in one alliance got 10 troops per flag
now 3 alliances get 10-40 a flag totaling 70 units per flag reward.  my opinion, more prizes equal smaller rewards. sounds fair to me.
