Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

Order Markers play a big role in this. It is more valuable to attack the boostees when their are no markers on the cheerleader (or a way to bond) because you are still going to be attacked and minimizing the damage they can do is necessary, especially if you have the possibility of making them lose turns. Most Cheerleaders are not going to kill you in the end game, and taking out immediate threats is osometimes more necessary than securing a foothold.

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

Depends on how well the opponents army is put together. Honestly, Raelin has caused me some grief before, but only minor. No one has ever drafted Taelord before. ("180 points? phhbbbb!"). I usually take out the cheerleaders first and any squad on my way to said cheerleader. Once they're gone, it's onto the beaters.

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

The best value/activation is to go after his activations. Against unique squads I think it's probably always best to strike the squad. If you can kill 2 Tarns or even 1 Krav you hit your opponent where it hurts. If you kill 4 Gruts and he has 16 more he can probably play this game a lot longer than you can. In that case you go for the cheerleader.

It gets dicier with heroes and smallish numbers of common squads.
It's pretty much a simple assessment: Does killing the Booster first take more time than delivering a crippling blow to the Boostees?

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

Who would only have 3 squads of Arrow Gruts.

Yes I would hit the gruts first, but I really doubt that that situation would happen a lot.

Lots of people have games where there's only 3 squads of gruts left.

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

Nobody mentioned it yet (maybe because it's already so obvious?), but the Viking Champs definitely fall into this category. Depending on how your opponent will place their Spirits, a dead Viking early on can be much, MUCH worse than a living one.

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

That's a very good point. In the last tourney on Saturday I dunked my own Finn in the Molten Lava so that my next 2 order markers got a +1 Attack...VERY nice! Major Q10 nearly kills Krug and dies JUST before time ends, but luckily I had put enough hits on him that I won on points.

I was famous, once...

Now that's a shrimp on the barbie! Nice.

I generally avoid killing off the viking cheerleaders because they are deadlier when dead. Has anyone noticed that flagbearers are bigger targets than some heroes? My last game with Sir Gilbert felt this way.

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

if raelin was on the other team then youd probably want to take her down first especially when shes defending a heavy hitter but weak defensively unit like AE

Re: When NOT to kill the Cheerleader first...

I agree in the case of the AE, Raelin and Empress Kiova combined with any more than 2 squads are absolutely devistating. So I say definately kill the cheerleaders first.
