My new local game store is starting an escalation league next month and there is quite a bit of interest in WarmaHordes going around. We've been playing some demo games and having paint nights to get ready and it seems we have more Hordes players than Warmachine at this point... though we're still hoping to attract more players.
Regardless, we have had a few complaints from the Warmachiner's that the Hordes system's flexibility in assigning fury on the fly makes them easier to play and therefore more powerful than the Warmachine factions. I think the constant resource pool for their casters along with more powerful casters and potentially great numbers of warmachines based on points more than balances this... but wondered if anyone else could share some insights I could pass along to help everyone feel they they will be on even footing once we all get the hang of our armies. Thanks in advance!
