Stalemate
« on: August 02, 2010, 06:44:56 AM »
I've gotten 17/18 achievements. But one frustrates me. Stalemate. And I see, it also frustrates

http://steamcommunity.com/stats/Eufloria/achievements

99.8% of steam players, and that only 3% of those who got any achievements got this one.

It's tough. When you're playing, you always aim to eliminate enemy opposition, as do most enemies. It's insanely unlikely that anyone not farming this achievement would ever get it. There's a lot of times when, over a game, I've had battles over a planet which I suspect lasted a total of over 15 minutes, and had over 500 casualties, but never continuously.

So, to farming. Has anyone here achieved it, on campaign, or on a custom map? What timer does it use?

hehe I got that one.  I made a custom level to make it work.  I suppose I could upload it, but that would take all the fun out of it.

I'm doing the same. Modifying the battle of midpoint. If I make the trees unkillable, I should be able to have an infinite battle.

The problem is, it's not that fun. What I suspect you'd have to do, outside of custom levels, is isolate an enemy with no defense trees and a decent number of dysons, and slowly feed and kill weak seedlings into their base for fifteen minutes. Boring and tricky. Which is why I'd prefer to have a fast way.

Edit. Victory is sweet. I made all units and the trees invulnerable, some of their units were too, started the battle against their 500 troops, waited for the timer to kick up to 1800, and then crushed their remaining vulnerable units.

There's a much easier and non cheating way to get that one, in that skirmish level where the asteroids are super fertile (I think it's called Abundance), plant 5 seedling trees on an asteroid (Preferably a very weak asteroid) and let the enemy conquers it, then swamp it with mines. Anytime an enemy seedling will spawn, mines will destroy it, after 15 minutes and 500 enemy seedlings destroyed that way, you should get the trophy. It's like Attrition, except longer. I forgot however if you must swamp it with mines or just send a single one so enemy seedlings aren't killed to quickly and the games still believe this is one long battle rather than several short ones.

After hundreds of hours playing the game, I got Stalemate today. I wasn't even looking for it.
I recently reinstalled my computer so I started a fresh game, doing all the levels again.
I got it in level 25, after sending an army of 200 or so over one of the big grey asteroids.
Greys from other asteroids rallied to defend their property.
An epic battle followed, I fed the asteroid with fresh seedlings from time to time and boom, here was my latest achievement.
