Re: Reverse the Whip Army Archetypes

Well I think your X17 Theracus to Wannok OM1 wasn't great. As Wannok was useless against your army, all it was doing was charging up Krug. I guess the benefit was that I wasn't holding Wannok? That was your biggest mistake since it basically lost you a turn.

You would have had to commit two order markers to the X17 Theracus to cyberclaw vipers and once the initial one or two Vipers you catch with that die then the rest of them just never engage X17. That idea certainly has potential but it's really really hard to execute properly. I never pulled off a crowd cyberclaw in my games with the army, the opportunity just never came up.

Re: Reverse the Whip Army Archetypes

I'm just thinking that you'd have to waste movement getting around X17, which might be a slight advantage.

It didn't occur to me that Wannok was a bad play. I guess the way I see it is that I'd have to deal with Krug eventually, so having him charged up is inevitable.

I need to learn to use auras properly. Using Nerak to up the Deathchasers to 3 defense could probably have turned the game in my favor. I'm also at a disadvantage in general when I'm forced to use Raelin.

Handle origin: I used to film comedy skits with my friends. I didn't want any cursing in them, so I made up new insults, like "dendrik". Then Sir Denrick came out, and the rest is history.

Re: Reverse the Whip Army Archetypes

Honestly I thought that was an almost optimally bad matchup for the 'chasers. 4 attack is wasted against Vipers, you're outnumbered, and if it comes down to the heroes Krug and Mittens are going to win.

But then again I would have picked myself to win in quarters and vegie to win in finals, so what do I know.

Re: Reverse the Whip Army Archetypes

Curious how the Prep armies would be classified in this system, but I get if you want to ignore the online if the meta is just too different:

Armies
Spoiler Alert!

Re: Reverse the Whip Army Archetypes

Yeah the online meta is just too different to compare to be honest. This is maybe more aptly titled "Gencon Reverse the Whip Army Archetypes" as the techniques are different. The playoffs (and regular season) of the online prep tournaments are substantially shorter so the variance is higher. There is more time to prep for online games which weakens trick builds which are still quite strong at Gencon.
