Operation Mammoth Drop

Don’t forget to pack your trunks…

New Troop: Mammoth

I.

Six Krystaran races
To learning much inclined,
They went to see a Mammoth
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.

II.

The Dwarf approached the Mammoth
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
“Stonehammer’s beard! This Mammoth
Is very like a wall!”

III.

The Orc, feeling of the tusk,
Cried: “Ugh!—what have we here
Is very round and smooth and sharp?
Orc think it mighty clear
This big and smelly Mammoth
Is very like a spear!”

IV.

The Naga grasped the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
“I sssee,” quoth he, “the Mammoth
Isss very like a sssnake!”

V.

The Elf reached out his eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
“What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain,” quoth he;
"'Tis clear enough the Mammoth
Is very like a tree!"

VI.

The Lapina, who touched the ear,
Said: “E’en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of a Mammoth
Is very like a fan!”

VII.

The Raksha rogue had soon begun
About the beast to grope,
Than, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
“I see,” quoth he, “the Mammoth
Is very like a rope!”

VIII.

And so these fine Krystarans
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!

MORAL.

So, oft in arguments and wars
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about a Mammoth
Not one of them has seen!

Big list of color counter Troops and Weapons

Only 1 troop? I was hoping for shoctopus in bonus :frowning:

Edit: nice story sirrian :slight_smile:


#3

I’m thinking they only went with one troop this week. Because they plan on releasing 4-5 more on Friday.


#4

Would be nice but salty told me new kingdom won’t be release this friday

But of course plan can change, crossing fingers


#5

I was going to post: What Kingdom? But the internet being what it is Ill get the correct answer faster If I post:

Is this troop from Adana?


#6

Urskaya bro


#7

So a common that hits armor AND does true damage? Nice!


#8

Strange wording. So 30 damage for 10 mana?
The 15 true damage as a beast could hit fast in a FG team


#9

Its not going to break anything because of what is already in the game even in terms of its own rarity tier, but this is a really solid common (board mod, boost ratio, true damage and armor break).


#10

This is a nice troop and a VERY nice poem. As someone who studied languages and picked every poetry course available during university, I am very happy with the current amount of amazing poems we get!

(I hope Voice of Orpheus will get us a song. Sung by everyone in the office. With Salty playing a harp. I have expectations now.)


#11

Last time the only glory troop was a common you added Necrezza as a bonus troop if we don’t get Shocktopus how about adding Spinnerette as a bonus troop? we haven’t had darks in a while


#12

I was telling Nim that I thought this was a really solid common troop. I think early to mid game players will find so much use for Mammoth. I think it will also be used in anti freeze teams.


#13

15 damage to life is different than 15 true damage?


#14

Nope it’s the same thing


#15

That is at 14 magic… i think wight a rare troop does the same damage but steals it. Interestingly 15 damage to life and armour means once armour is gone it only does 15 damage


#16

This guy will be amazing in Arena.


#17

Oooh since it is damage to armour and life do you think it takes out barrier the hits for 15 life?

Anti-dawnbringer troop?


#18

You don’t need mammoth for anti-dawnbringer, Kraken is the perfect candidate


#19

There’s a point, that’ll be good to test out when he drops.


#20

… and late game players can probably have some fun with this and 2 or 3 Scorpius :stuck_out_tongue:

Seems like a fun common for sure. Many of the lower rarity troops have been quite nice in usability lately.
