Re: The Book of Megatron - Public PT

Two more AI tests from Arch here, two loses. Feeling pretty good about where he's at.

Army Test
Map: Embattled Fen

THOUGHTS ON THE TESTED UNIT'S COST, BALANCE, & DRAFTABILITY: Megatron + Arthrians is not as strong as it seems in the early game because the whole army falls apart once Megatron dies. My idea with Zoom was to have him as a fast defensive hero to use the Hand Cannon with, which worked decently well despite two losses. Cower Before Megatron is a terrifying power because it can shut you down. I learned to spread order markers and keep the X handy so Megatron had a chance at removing that one. Winning initiative is pretty crucial for Cower Before Megatron.

I wouldn’t raise Megatron’s points based on my tests, but I wouldn’t lower them either. Megatron is a very powerful figure especially when he starts removing order markers. I wonder if more or fewer Arthrians might make a stronger army, and maybe even omitting Zoom or other heroes (despite losing Hand Cannon, that would give you more Arthrians to attack with).


GENERAL THOUGHTS ON THE TESTED UNIT: Very thematic. I love the theme of Cower Before Megatron (I was having fun saying that in a Megatron voice when using the power), and Hand Cannon is a hilarious way to represent Megatron’s transformation. The stats felt suitably high. Megatron is a very popular figure and I think you nailed it.
