hmm. What are some people's tactics for winning games. In assassination games (which is mostly what we play) I love playing the attrition game and I usually try to take out 90% of my opponent's force before getting the kill. Well as I was thinking about it. I played a 1-1-1-1 (1 caster/lock, 1beast/jack, 1 solo, 1 unit). I had pFeora, Zealots and UA, Vilmonster, and the Avatar. Nasty nasty list. I won 4 of 5 games, took first. The one I lost, Vilmon botched a roll against Ravyn and she was able to take out Feora.
Had a few players say something along the lines of "Brutal list man."
Anyways. I was thinking that my game play may be a little bit demoralizing to have your entire army wiped off the board, but I've lost enough times by trying to jump the gun on the assassination that I've kind of learned my lesson. Woot to the PoM for being the attrition team, is this normal for everyone? Do people have nasty fast, I-kill-you-on-turn-2, lists that they do? I find that skipping the destruction of the jack makes me feel like I missed something during the game.
I would hate for my fellow gamers to quit playing with me because losing to me is demoralizing and un-fun. [note: this is not an ego-stroke. I still lose here and there. My goal is to not lose opponents to potentially lose to]. I will state that I don't lord it over them and I don't do anything more than a handshake and "Good game."
