I played this just a few times, but already found a very evil tactic.

For vampire:
Get 40 gold, put up a spider spawner in a corner of the map.
Stop all spiders from going to middle (can send them to farm souls at every place if desired, or just camp with them).
At next 40 gold get another.
If desired get another 1 or 2.
Send over 100 spiders at the same time at middle.

This caused my movement to get slowed alot so couldnt run away with my hero when i got some heroes against it, but won the game and was impossible to prevent it.

Also the human looking vampire hero is extremely strong against guards, at lvl 4 pentagram he can solo any amount of guards without actually attacking himself. So just run into middle and use it and tank them while they stand in pentagram while they all die.

Solution to spider issue, prevent players from controlling them. (this way it is impossible to gather hundreds of them and cant feed all over map)

hahaha I started this strategy today. I knew once I did that everyone would start using it :P

Although I exploited it in a far more creative way.

I've been sticking spider nests inside the houses in the southwest since they are walkable... No one finds them and I just build them up from time to time. By the way, it's nice to see that this part of the forum still lives.

This certainly does seem like an issue.

We could limit the spawn for each player to 10 spiders alive at a time.

We could make the spiders computer controlled.

Which would everyone prefer?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I invented exploiting spiders.

I love my OP Spiders.

I will not give up my Spiders.

This calls for a duel.

You think you invented it? I was exploiting spiders in the first beta's before the game was released.
