    No Winterwind at the moment so no PM reminders this week. Tomorrow is Friday and thus the custom map session, I hope to see you all there.

    Although my record for these meet-ups is spotty as is () I regret to inform that I will not be at this week's session, and probably not next week's either. My computer caught a virus (From, ironically, Warcraft III) and is currently dead to the world. I still have access to the internet, just no warcraft.

    I've decided to start writing that Skibi's guide I said I'd do so long ago. So far, this is what I have:

    General Tips:

    - Skibi's is more about quality than quantity. A maze much bigger than one screen length will generally spread your money to thin, and there are waves that will take advantage if you build too big a maze.

    - On that note, upgrading those mazing level 1 towers is generally never a good idea. The money can be better spent elsewhere. Tower damage scales pretty well, and better towers generally also have better abilities.

    - Note that some towers change their function entirely when you upgrade them. (Tempest towers love to do this in paticular)

    - If you're one of the back defenders (Yellow, Orange, Green, Pink, Grey, Light Blue), there are brown diamonds in your area. The brown diamods are creep waypoints; these are points that the creeps must cross before continuing on. So, it would be wise to build mazes around them so they have to go through your maze to get to the waypoint, and then through your maze again to get out. Warning: The pathing on Skibi's is a bit flawed; if you maze around a waypoint, make sure you leave a two space wide maze close to the waypoint or else they will attack towers on the way out.

    - Practice the Mini-Games, as the gold earned from them can really add up.

    - Having a way to heal your towers is very important if you play on surviving the later waves (30 and beyond). I find it worth it to spend a food point on Scarlet Knight, because they by far have the best healing tower in the game (upgraded protection ward).

    - On that note, it is generally not wise to have more than two races.

    General Wave Information (Classic Mode):

    Spoiler
    Show
    Armor Types:

    Waves 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26, 31, 36, and 41 have Medium Armor
    Waves 2, 7, 12, 17, 22, 27, 32, 37, and 42 have Heavy Armor
    Waves 3, 8, 13, 18, 23, 28, 33, 38, 39, and 44 have Fortified Armor
    Waves 4, 9, 14, 19, 24, 29, and 34 have Light Armor.
    Waves 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, ahd 40 have Hero Armor
    Wave 43 has Unarmored Armor
    Wave 45 has Divine Armor.

    General Specials:

    Waves 4, 9, 14, 19, 24, 29, 34, and 39 have Air units.
    Waves 8, 16, 21, 26, 31, 36, 40, 42, and 43 have units that deal AoE damage to nearby towers each second.
    Waves 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 have a commander which has a beneficial aura for allies and perhaps other abilities.
    Waves 23, 32, 38, and 45 will spawn creeps that directly attack your towers.
    Waves 14 and 24 are bonus waves; any leaks will not subtract from lives.
    Waves 12, 21, 33, 39, and 43 have much stronger creeps, although less spawn.
    Waves 7, 14, 24, 26, and 36 have more spawns than normal.

    Set Minigames:

    The mini game after waves 5 and 15 is always the hero seige game.
    The mini game after waves 10 and 20 is always the Obstacle Course game.
    The mini game after waves 9, 19, and 29 is always the coin-grabbing game.
    The mini game after wave 25 is always the bear game.
    The mini game after wave 30 is always the sheep game.
    The mini game after wave 35 is always the race game.

    *Spell attacks ignore armor value, which makes this a bit misleading. Spell type damage is probably the best in this game.

    Seems like a pretty good start.

    It might be wise to note that Arcane and Military are rather unorthadox in their playing styles compared to everything else (more Arcane than Military) and it might be best to start out with some other race (I'm a fan of Specialists, personally).

    Looks like a good start indeed.

    I never realized Skibi's had a fixed armour type order like Corrupted does (though in Corrupted the order is Hero-Heavy-Medium-Light-Fortified instead). That might prove useful to know.

    Personally, I'm rather fond of the Scarlet Knight, especially since his special abilities are quite useful, too.

    Alas, due to being over at my parents for this weekend with no WC3-capable computer available to me, plus an impending roleplaying session on that evening, I won't be able to participate myself, but I wish you all a lot of fun.

    Due to sudden RL events I may be about half an hour or so late to the session. I will definitely show up, though.

    Sorry for not having shown up yesterday; RL friends kidnapped me again.
    As they apparently intend to do today. Probably not for quite as long, so I might still show up later on, but it will be late (sorry about that, Yak).
