    Yup, along with a dozen+ other high-frequency non-story line based Captains.  Including:

     

    Shag the Cruel

    Az-Bror Black Heart

    Zunn the Cruel

    Az-Adar the Cruel

    Ar-Henok Brain Biter

    Flak Black-Heart

    Noruk the Slayer

    etc etc 

     

    The most frequent story-based Captains:

     

    Maku the Fixer

    the Thrall

    Bruz the Chopper

    the Architect

    of the Dead

     

    Xbox One

     

    This was unfortunately forecasted to happen, brought up in a post about a month ago.   It's one reason I don't play as much anymore.

    Lol yeah I got like a dozen of each of them in my garrison. It'd be a lot better if the story followers couldn't be recruited from other players

    I know the original owner of Hoglik. Most of those other guys listed also belong to him.

    Most of the non-story based repeatetive Captains are 3-Epic Traited (Legendaries), and there are many more like this.   Most of those mentioned are also 'No Chance' non-Assassins, as evdient by their last name (the Cruel, Black-Heart) .  

     

    Personally, I only carry out ranked sieges now to meet the Daily/Community Challenges, otherwise I don't bother.  Too repetitive, not enough diversity, boring and static.   Doesn't help that  70%+ of them you don't return with the dropped items from killed Captains, which forces you to cotinually pare your Garrisson to 399 in order to recruit them all and return with them to Garrisson, then grind for the items.   Also, many item gear challenges you meet are not retained when this happens, nor is any Miriam or gems.    Same happens with Vendettas - and all reported to Monolith individually via tickets.

    I guess when you really look at it, those fellas they use in their armies is one way to keep players off their lawn, the PS4 players encounter similar orcs themselves xD, most favoured through my experience aside from the BOG orcs, you have Ur-Benu the Runner, Krakhorn the Wise and Tuhorn the Envenomed, I encountered these 3 in sieges after the update and they have good immunities so I can see why players use em, hell.i have em then too, Tuhorn and Krahorn rule over two of my regions and Ur-Benu is bodyguard to an overlord in another lol, it's those immunities and lack of weaknesses that make em so common x_x, I'm no exception I'll admit xD

    Sure I use them to but it definitely takes the fun out of doing the sieges when most forts have 4-5 Hoglik the Jaded and 4-5 "Thingie" the Scorpion, the better known merciless and cruel dudes and a bunch of Maku the Fixer.

    Plus appearently the loot system is bugged (mentioned above) though I don't pay too much attention to this, I like to think that at least I'm getting a bunch of legendary items that I might miss but that's probably not true either.

    It's the opportunity to obtain a higher level Legendary (>=81) item then one u already have and use routinely.  Or a higher level Legendary of a Tribe/item you like where you'd consider re-rolling it's 2nd stat for a chance at swapping it out to one you'd deem stronger and/or fits your strategy style.    The 1000 Myrian is useful too, particularly if you do a lot of EPIC TO swapping and Legendary TO purchases.

    Keep in mind that all those your brand and recruit are LOSERS - they broke, you defeated them and recruited them.  There are also no Forts out there that you can't Gold, even one full of Jaded, 3 traited strong Legendary Cruels, Black-Hearts, etcetc whoever you deem to be strong.      You can go through an entire Siege, points 1-6 and in the trone room, in Elven Rage, which is pretty much God -mode.  SInce they nerfed Berzerkers and reduced the abilities of certain other types, there aren't any that stand out and provide a worthy challenge to make u sweat and feel ur life is in danger.   If they had a Gravewalker level in Sieges that would help, but with the right gear u can somewhat control that risk too.

    In my personal data, I have 2,000 online conquests. I have acquired a large number of orcs, yes, they all have the ability to "no chance". But these guys have no use for me. I can solo any fortress and promise to finish this in 15 minutes. (No matter how terrible the orc is in the player's fortress) My level has reached more than 800, and my 6 subsidy skills are all full. I don't know what I should do next, it seems very boring. All I can do now is to guide other players on how to screen the orcs and how to complete the online conquest. Seeing people here may make people feel that I am showing off and bragging. But no, I think I might be the most powerful player in the world, yes, I can really solo any fortress in 15 minutes.

    No offence Liu but that's fairly common, and for some forts and some luck you can attack solo and still get gold.  Otherwise it's a very comfortable silver, when you either don't attack with any Followers or you have selected a full compliment but none (zero) show up to help (which has been a consistent recurring issue since game launch).    But yes you reach a point where it becomes quite boring andrepetitive.   Every player has their own limit, whether it's after a hundred hours of game play or thousands of hours, it just gets tiresome and predictable.    I've found myself playing less and less over the last few months, not much more to accomplish.    A 2nd full on save slot would have helped keep the interest up, as well as a reduction in the number of still existing and in other cases newly introduced bugs/issues, revert back to the original Berzerker and Slayer strengths as per the <=v1.17, ,and a change in some basic game mechanics, but what can u do, it is what it is.

    Let's instead blame all the people who instead of embracing the unique diversity of this game and doing something interesting decided that it was much more interesting to set the exact same fort as everyone else because it was the best set-up.

    Vendettas are more entertaining, I only do the ranked Sieges if it's part of a Community/Daily Challenge - but 4 out of the last 5 Community Challenges haven't been tracking properly.  You do 1/2 a dozen over a few days and none of them go towards the Challenge (be in Vendetta linked or more often it's Sieges).    Daily Challenges still track and complete fine, but not so the Community ones.   Another problem since Day 1.   .
