Saying that taking away AOE from a mage is like taking armor, great weapons, and shields from fighters is dumb. Fireball is ONE spell. Mages can take two hits from anything, except green(which only they can throw btw). Mages have a * of other spells they can use as well, that have no AOE, that are very useful.
One could even say that maybe mages could be more creative, and use a spell in a bridge battle beside fireball??????????........ Just a thought.
As long as you promise not to call yourself dead and actually stand there for the full five minutes (not you, particularly, but anybody that gets hit). I try to not use fireball, so instead I use ice storm, and then the person just calls themselves dead... Which defeats the purpose of what I was trying to do: cause a blockage on their side of the bridge.
And when I've feebleminded people before, they just call themselves dead before anybody kills them. Instant death from fireball seems to be the way to go. At least they're actually supposed to be dead, or at the very least, close to death via mortal wounding.
So you can instantly die a bunch, or you can sit out for five minutes at a time from our other spells. I mean, which would any of you rather have? I try to mix things up unlike a lot of other mages, but it just ends up being cheesed by someone who would rather fight again 10 seconds later instead of playing by the rules.
I ALWAYS stay standing in the middle of the fighting when frozen, I think it's awesome and what makes Darkon, Darkon. But I also only hate on magic when it RUINS the games, not just because it exists.
And that is why I think you are a good player. But others aren't. If everybody really looked at the better vets in this game and took something from them, they'd all be better players.
