This week my camp finished eliminating LAC and HtH from the Northern Clash Zone, while keeping UKR in a very small space at the bottom of the map where they posed no threat. That was the objective before the Tree area opened, and SOH, TVK, and RoP did a great job of clearing out the enemy. With this, Stone Camp assured our holding of all the open wonders on the map, with the exception of the enemy Clash Zone.
This week the Tree Zone also opened, and it was off to the races with our camp having the advantage of protection times. With the enemy locked out just after reset, we were able to build into the Tree Zone without worries of needing to fight or change paths. We had an 8 hour head start before the enemy could even take the tunnels into the zone.
The plan was to have SOH build straight across the map from the tunnels on the left side to the enemy tunnels on the right and to cover the entire area so they would not be able to build during our protection time. TVK took a slightly more northern path to secure some more buffs for the camp, gain free teleportation, and secure easy access to the tree in the worst case, before moving back down to assist SOH. RoP had the longest route. Coming from the top tunnels was a two day build, and they would make sure that the enemy camp had no way of going north to the tree.
Once protection opened, UKR, HtH, and LAC all attacked at once, with SOH holding the tunnels against all three enemy alliances. Our objective was simple; hold the gates to the last ant until TVK could arrive to assist. The only advantage we had was the enemy camp’s long march times across the tunnel areas. After a hard, long battle, TVK arrived from the North with minimal enemy towers in the Tree zone. TVK fought and pushed the enemy back out. Only UKR was able to break through and use the ferry access to try to run into the area to the south.
With both LAC and HtH eliminated from the area, SOH’s and TVK’s attention turned to UKR who overnight had built a stronghold in the area south of the first ferry. With both alliances attacking and eliminating UKR towers the following day, the enemy didn’t last long in the Tree zone. By the time RoP reached the southeast tunnels, all three enemy alliances had been taken out. TVK worked to close the enemy tunnels, and the war for the Tree Clash was won.
SOH, TVK, and RoP have now surrounded the tree and will have a lottery at reset tonight. All three alliances have tried to give equal ground for the tree battle after reset. We have all agreed that the fair thing to do is have all three allies attack the tree at the same time with the last hit taking it.
The event is not over; however, with Stone Camp holding all the open wonders and now having completely surrounded the tree with no enemy in the zone, the event seems to be won. In the coming days, we will be farming champion points, kills, and making sure our wonders are secure from Wreck Camp.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with TVK and RoP this event, and SOH feels privileged to have been paired with such great allies. The communication and strategy between all three alliances has been amazing, and we will continue to build our relationships even after the event has ended. I would also like to give a special thank you to Achillies, the R5 of TVK, for doing such a great job as the R6 for our camp. He was an outstanding camp leader, and we couldn’t have picked a better person. Stone Camp dominated this event!
