Wow, you really got a lot of playing. I'm quite envious :P
I do I love this game and fortunately I have the time these days to get a lot of game-time in.
Speaking of which... 6 games today! Reports will come as soon as possible
Happy new year everyone! I played 2 games vs Trolls (Yes, finally!!) today. Reports will come tonight
Hope you all had a wonderful new year's eve!
Legion and Khador today. Reports tonight
I really like your battle reports.
Keep up the good work and good luck at the Norwegian Masters.
Thank you I hope to get a few games in before Norwegian Masters! Currently though I'm on a work trip to Berlin so I have no opportunity to play for the next couple of days no matter what I do.
Boys in Blue are Back in Business! Skorne, more specifically Xerxis1 today. Haley2 is the designated driver - http://www.courageofcaspia.com/2016/...erxis1-50.html
Caine2 vs Jarl - http://www.courageofcaspia.com/2016/...s-jarl-50.html
Caine2 vs Issyria will be up tomorrow night Interesting game!
Just started reading these from the most recent backwards. Thanks for sharing them and I look forward to more. Good luck at the Norwegian masters.
I was left wondering about a few things after a couple of the reports. When going first, do you ever try to get Ace to snipe enemy AD models? (He reaches an inch into the enemy AD zone from my math and with magic bullet and trick shot could kill 3 models before your opponent does anything.) How is Ace working out in general. Since I've only just started reading your reports and from the most recent at that there hasn't been much model analysis of Ace in your post game reviews.
In the recent game against Jarl it seemed odd to me that Jarl didn't feat the turn before you assassinated him. I've played into Jarl a few times and like him as an opposing troll caster and my opponents have always used his feat early as a means of denial with the clouds to buy that turn to push into my stuff next turn. Was there a reason your opponent didn't feat? I know there was some confusion over LOS with the hill from the report.
Thanks again for taking the time to write up these games and I look forward to more.
Heya, thanks a lot for your reply
Ace is an amazing support jack. He is lethal and flexible, to the point where I frequently draw out unproportional amounts of hate from my opponent (e.g. Issyria's feat). You are correct that I haven't touched upon his abilities properly in the post-game evaluations but this is largely because I feel his abilities speak for themselves in the games I've had thus far. I'll try and pay more attention to it though and articulate what options I see with him, which ones I try and go for (and why) etc.
Reaching into enemy AD is definitely an option with him. As for why I haven't tried it, well there's no one good answer unfortunately. I am wary of putting Ace up too aggressively though. Have you seen any opportunities that I should've gone for?
Jarl should definitely have feated as next turn there'd be Warders all over the place, at which point my list struggles more than a bit. I simply don't think Caine can play into Trolls unless the pairing is really wacky. Speaking of Trolls I will likely get 2 games against Doomie3 tonight, looking forward to practicing Haley against him
In the Vlad game it wasn't clear if the opponent had deployed to the front of his AD zone but the widowmakers went down opposite Ace, if you could afford the focus a boosted attack with magic bullet and trick shot might have seen 3 of the widowmakers dead before taking a turn. Also in the game against Jarl you could have done the same on the croak raiders had you gone first.
It's very situational but I've made a habit of looking for such tricks and options as they can be quite impactful on the game. With magic bullet you can also use Ace's thunderbolt shot to push an AD model back towards the enemy deployment zone so that magic bullet is now in range of something in the main deployment zone.
Good luck against Doomshaper 3. Will it be the theme force or a more normal list?
Looking for openings like that is indeed important I will make sure to keep an open mind, thanks a lot for the input!
Doomie3 - I have no idea. I have limited experience against Trolls and have never faced him. Game in 45 minutes, will report back tonight or tomorrow
First game is up, Haley2 vs Doomie3: http://www.courageofcaspia.com/2016/...omshaper3.html
I played one more game tonight, the same matchup. Report coming very soon!
I faced Trollbloods, Retribution, Legion, Legion, Retribution, Menoth. Reports will come, some very good games here
