So on these levels with two different shamans, do you prefer to have an all out war on the other shaman, or do you think these maps should be about pure building speed?

I personally like to just concentrate on getting the mice to the hole in the fastest way possible, but that may also be because I'm not the fastest shaman Embarassed

It really depends on where I am.

In big rooms (e.g. room 1, 2, 3) I call a truce so both shamans can get cheese.

In small rooms (e.g. room -1 when anybodys on it) I sham battle simply because we have nothing to do.

And when i'm downright bored I surrender.

If the level's also got two different exits, then there can only be one. It's foolish to assume the other shaman won't betray you on a whim.

If the level's only got neutral exits, it does depend on building options: Arranging with the other shaman for separate constructions is probably wisest.

If there's not enough building space for separate constructions, it's safest for all to remove incompetent shamans from the field. Even two competent shamans trying to build the same thing at the same time can lead to very hilarious failures.

All that said, I usually go for extra challenge and being a fool and try to go for peace almost always, sometimes even offering it to the other obvious shaman before we have a go.

We can after all still fight once all the mice are safe.

If I'm shaman and theyre's...
-2 holes and 2 shamans: I shoot the other shaman off, or build faster than him, whatever will be better. Peace ****s, I always see the shaman asking for peace win, cause the other one is typing 'ok'. xD
-1 hole and 2 shamans: If the other shaman knows what he's doing, I'll just do nothing or troll around. If he's a nib, I'll try to build a bridge before he makes everything worse.

I usually take the initiative in public rooms and KO the other shaman, UNLESS they ask for peace. I only attack first because I'm paranoid that the other shaman is trying to do the same to me. However, I won't attack (most of) my friends if we both end up being shaman.

When there are two shamans and they share a hole, I'll usually just ignore the other shaman and build on my own. I often assume that they'll just end up failing somehow anyway. But occasionally, we'll both have the same idea and I'll help them out with their bridge/ramp/etc.

Somehow, and I don't know how it's possible, Blahsadfeguie neatly summed up my sentiment as well.

I always call out truce but I'm always watching what the other shaman is doing. If the other shaman does anything bad, then I pick up my canons and boxes and go to war!!!!

I'm a almost always a pacifist. There are exceptions, however: 1) If the other shaman has been a troll, I will gladly try to kill them before they do any more damage to the larger body of mice, and 2) If they've killed me before, despite asking for peace.
I'll still always try first get the level finished. That way, there's time for building glitchy, otherwise useless objects.

This is not a signature. At least, that's what they want you to think...

In most cases, we get all mice into the holes and then in the end we fight for fun.

It is very complicated. I will use the next terms to explain:
Peace: Truce. We/I just build.
Trolling: I troll mice.
War: Battling against the shaman.
Execution: I battle trolls, and single out stallers and N00BZ.

Shared hole: Peace: Peace will be maintained, unless the other attacks. Then 'War' is initiated.
If needed, 'Execution' is initiated.

Colored holes: War: I shoot, unless the other calls out truce. Then 'War' is initiated. If needed, 'Execution' is initiated.

No need for shaman map: Trolling: I build a wall in front of the exit, so pro's are still worthy and allowed to escape certain doom. A great array of weaponry will be used, including an airship which perfectly hovers, so I can dish out death from above.

Request for killing a troll: Execution: I put a glitch-able wall in front of the exit. After that, I kill the requested, and whoever stalls. As soon as everybody is dead, the wall will be glitched, so remaining mice may escape.

When I encounter certain friends of me, who are creative trolls: Trolling and Execution: When we are shamans together: CHAOS ENSUES!! (However, this is very, VERY, rare.) When I am alone: I single out everyone he wishes to be killed, because I am a good friend. I also play CAT AND MOUSE (pun intended) games with them, pretending to let them go. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a brain-less maniac, and I also vary it with playing nice Very Happy
