Bad news: I only got results slips from the 16 players that made day 2. No result slips from the rest, so no records. Anyway... here's the non-qualifying armies I have.

Top 4 is a bit silly of a way to think about it given Heroscape's strange cultural state as a discontinued game that we get together to play. But also no one was really thinking about Heroscape skill that way. Caps was mostly just complaining that he was matched against Heroscape celebrities in Day 2 who are always tough to beat
Well, he had the matchup vs Ken. Spiders and Wyverns destroy the splash armies we create, because the whole point of splash armies is a gradual positioning game with different pieces. Spiders are actually a really hard counter for those armies (Ken had told me that he was running them and I tested them, those games arenít even close).

But otherwise, yeah. He was definitely on top of his game this year. Last year was Matthewís year, this year it was Nathanís. Ken is still probably the best player at GenCon, especially given that he plays even less than myself or the Ashís play (I play about 10 games outside GenCon each year, Ken plays about 0).
I didn't really have a splash army, though. I had 2xRats, 2xHSBs, Raelin, and Brandis. Most of that army has 4 defense *outside* of Raelin's aura. A tough matchup for spiders.


I played them poorly, though.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Donít worry, Iím not trash talking you bud. As I mentioned, glad I have validation for the Brandis secret tech hype train!

ISí army is pretty bad vs Spiders, while yours isnít. Heavies do not have an easy time when they canít sit in auras, whereas your 4-defense figures donít really care, as you mentioned.

As an aside, I tested Spiders vs Romans this summer. Talk about a hilarious non-game... I feel like Spiders have a 90-10 matchup against Romans. They eat them alive.
