I've been trying my best to get a rot victory for a while now and frankly, it makes me cry every time. I just can't get the damn thing.
First, I had everything going smooth, I had a solid inventory of items and way more rot than the king had. I entered the palace when the king had around 4 HP or so, and ended my turn. The next turn, Amber plays Immolate on me. Then, Brun plays Cleansing Wyld twice on me, so now I have less rot than The King. Now, if that wasn't enough, Sana cast Banish on me, sending me as far away from the palace as ###### possible. It was the first time I was genuinely angry with a game. I didn't ragequit, but I understood why people do that. I tried to get my stuff together but it ended up in a Prestige victory.
After four weeks now, it's starting to seem that people are literally willing to do ANYTHING to not see a rot victory. I have never ever seen anyone even going for the rot victory. Every time I try, and trust me, I try it a lot because it's very challenging and honestly at this point, I just want to feel that damn satisfaction. I want my darn rot victory. I've been like a rabid hound running for it for weeks now.
Today, I pulled a rot card straight from the deck on my first turn and a Bane quickly spawned to a dungeon 2 hexes away from me. It looked so promising. I managed to rack up to 5 rot in no time at all, King was still at 3 rot by this point. I spawned a Bane right next to me again and got even more extra rot from it. Then I got a Bastard Sword too, and a Tower Shield and Marauder Gauntlets.
In the end, I got completely locked out of the game. I still have no idea if the group I was playing against was a premade, but in hindsight, the matchmaking indeed was very quick and the three players were there before I was. River was the usual River with so much fight she could probably have ended the entire Earth's population five times with one throw. Amber was stacked up with shields, she had 5 stacked up in the beginning of the fight before anything was rolled or burned. Barnaby was just minding his own business and got up to 10 prestige or so. Amber and River didn't do anything to each other during the whole game. When they got their gear, they just set themselves on the hexes in front of the palace, ensuring that I would not get thru them. Then they just did whatever on their turns or often didn't even act, just letting the timer run out.
*Cries* I don't understand what I'm doing to make people always gang up on me. It seems that every time I play Sargon, everyone just focuses on killing me and not letting me even leave clan grounds.
I just want to enter eternal rest now. But this game will never let me.
Edit: Not to mention an additional frustration of being stuck on level 4 for ages now. Nobody ever gives the star. And I don't mean to me, but as in general.
WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT IT'S EXPERIENCE TO OTHERS
