Re: Heroes of Fiction: Playtesting Thread

OK, I am not totally finished playtesting Simon yet, but since I probably won't get to play again for at least a week and a half I will go ahead and post what results I do have. I tested him several times against each opponent just to minimize "luck-of-the-roll" as much as possbile.

NAME OF THE TEST UNIT: Simon Belmont

-THEME TEST: Pass

-MIRROR TEST: Pass

-BONDING TEST: Pass

-SYNERGIES TEST: Pass

-POWER CHECK: Not sure yet.

-FUN TEST: Pass

-FUN COMPETITIVE TEST: Not sure yet

-DRAFTING TEST: Not sure yet

-USAGE TEST: Pass

-STRATEGY TEST: Pass

-HEAVY HITTER OR MID-LEVEL HERO
TEST 1
Map: Quasatch Playground
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Cyprien Esenwein
Simon wins on turn 2 of round 2 with no wounds. Cyprien wiffed quite a few defense rolls and didn't get Chilling Touch on any of his turns.

TEST 2
Map: Quasatch Playground
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Cyprien Esenwein
Cyprein wins on turn 2 of round 2 with 7 wounds; a very fun and very close game.

TEST 3
Map: Quasatch Playground
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Cyprien Esenwein (one more time)
Simon wins on turn 2 of round 2 with 2 wounds

TEST 4
Map: Quasatch Playground
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Tandros Kreel
Tandros wins on turn 2 of round 2 (are you noticing a pattern here) with 4 wounds.

TEST 5
Map: Quasatch Playground
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Tandros Kreel
andros wins on turn 3 of round 2 with 4 wounds

TEST 6
Map: Quasatch Playground
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Tandros Kreel
Tandros wins on turn 2 of round 3 with 2 wounds. Simon wiffed every attack roll for round 2.

SQUAD TEST
TEST 1
Map: QP
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Stingers x2
Gee, take a guess who won
Stingers win on turn 1 of round 2 but Simon did take out a full squad first

TEST 2
Map: QP
Units: Simon Belmont vs. KOW x2
KOW win on turn 1 of round 2; Simon took out 2 knights

TEST 3
Map: QP
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Zombies of Morindan x2
Simon wins turn 1 of round 3 with 4 wounds

TEST 4
Map: QP
Units: Simon Belmont vs. Zombies x2
Zombies win on turn 1 of round 2 with only 1 zombie destroyed. I changed strategies for this game and they tore Simon up.

TEST 5
Map: QP
Units: simon Belmont vs. Zombies x2
Simon wins on turn 1 of round 3 with 1 wound. I tried the same strategy with the zombies as in Test 4 but I saw a hole in it and Simon slipped through that hole and decimated the zombies.

Conclusion so far:
Against undead Simon rocks! The Sense Undead ability is an awesome advantage. It almost didn't matter who won initiative. With both Cyprien and the Zombies, strategy was the winner of the day so I think he is well balanced against them. Simon definitely is worth his points against them each, especially against Cyprien who is 150 points vs. Simon at 120.

What keeps him at 120 even though he can beat Cyprien in a match up is that he isn't all that great against non-undead; at least not yet. he didn't win a single match-up against non-undead units. So far this makes him a great counter draft hero.

For the army test these are the armies I will be playing when I get a chance:
Simon Belmont 120
KOW x2 140
4th Mass x2 140
400 points (can anyone say All Valiant Defense Bonus)

vs.

Cyprien 150
Zombies x2 120
Stingers x2 120
Isamu 10
400 points

I will post results for that test when I get a chance to play it.
