We want to know what your favourite national power is. Is it because they're very useful or because the effects just look so shockingly beautiful? Vote on the main page here: http://rol.heavengames.com, then post your reasons here!

Shala can link, I can't do it better

Alin for me. It's just seems far more effective than the bit of damage Cuotl or Vinci can do.

Same here! It's just a more versatile power I think.

Vinci's Industrial Devestation is my favourite as the damage it does when inflicted on a city is predictable, and it never requires time or thought after its execution.

Alin's Summon Army, while good, can take a lot of micro after it is executed.

Cuotl Starbolt is my least favorite, it requires micro, does less damage than ID but it does not need los. I kind of wish Starbolt was linked to the Hero first chosen (and not available until that hero was chosen) so that if Czin were chosen it would be a devasting plague with damage that continued after the bolt passed to another area, and with Shok the opponent loses control of his units and they stop fighting (sort of like her Storm power), with Xil they burn and burn.


Eye candy award, of course, goes to Starbolt. ID is kind of ugly. Summon Army is a neat summoning.

So measuring both for effect and aesthetics I guess Summon Army could be said to be best yet I'll reaffirm ID as best because effect trumps aesthetics in gameplay.

I quess Shala you play RoL on the highest settings. I just went back to that setting and was almost entranced with the beauty of the game again as I was when I first started playing last summer. I went to low settings because I had the idea that online play might be effected by the settings(not sure as I played a couple of games on high settings and it did not seems to cause lag).

Regarding the last poll

Quoted from the front page:
So we asked you about how efficiently you all use your scout units. Turns out that most of you don't think they're incredibly useful and only use then at the beginning of the game to scout out the terrain and/or prior to raiding an opponent! And well... there's the seven of you who don't actually use scouts!

wtf. some people don't use scouts. Relics , keepin eye on opponent. I can't believe anyone does not use the scout. At least set it to autoexplore.

Well, according to our poll, 7/45 people don't use scouts at all. They could all be anomalies though, who knows!

Scouts are the most important units in the game, really. If you don't use it, you can be attacked with no warning, and you won't have as much info on what your opponent is doing.

Inded. And if you haven't got the time for it you can always put them on autodiscover.

Industrial Devastation, as you don't have to micro after activeting it.
