It was entirely random, and not because nobody wants to draft against you.

Probably.

I will admit that I do not want to play in that matchup.

I will say this: in my experience, the people who pick the strongest or weakest thing they can think of for reverse draft (because "hey it's reverse draft it's automatically balanced") have done poorly in that event, without fail. There's a good reason for this: you end up with one army getting drafted down into oblivion, which results in erratic gameplay, and nobody can really win those matches consistently.

I also find these extreme draft games are not particularly fun for either player.

This isn't really a unique problem for reverse draft - someone can easily bring two hyper-strong armies for bring 2, or bring something super strong or super weak in alternating RTW. Or, you know, bringing something ridiculously strong to a local event where people aren't expecting that sort of thing. We've seen all these things happen. For some reason it seems to happen slightly more often in reverse draft.

To be fair, winning initiative will mean more than the drafts in these games.

EDIT: I guess not. Middle ground armies won't rely on drafts or initiative and therefore win more often. Touche.

Re: OHS Season 40 - Reverse Draft (BYOG) - Round 1 until 3/7

I love the diversity of the armies in this tournament!! Two armies with the Einar! Seeing Minions back in action! I think the bring your Glyph is a great idea.

Re: OHS Season 40 - Reverse Draft (BYOG) - Round 1 until 3/7

boromir and I are starting soon. He has my army minus Raelin, Ogre Pulverizer and 5 Deathchasers, I have his army.

The Jail-Guarding Orcs
* Me-Burq-Sa, Nerak the Glacian Swog Rider, Raelin the Kyrie Warrior [RotV], Death Chasers of Theskx5, Ogre Pulverizer - Jalgard (Defense +2) (Permanent Power)

* Raelin the Kyrie Warrior [SotM], Black Wyrmlingx2, Blastatronsx2, Gladiatronsx2, Red Wyrmlingx2 - Lorja Ivor (Range 4 or Greater Range +1) (Permanent Power)

EDIT: I got the win. I opened with Wyrmlings who pounded Nerak with some big rolls to take him out early, and after that the robots took over. The Deathchasers didn't have enough in the tank to ever really lay into me, especially since I had some solid defense rolls. Good game boromir, glad to get my revenge and finally beat you with Trons.
