Mezzos or Stingers?

Okay, which is better? Not which one you like better, but which one you`ve found in your experiance to be better. I say Stingers. If you say Mezzos, post why.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

I really haven't played with Stingers enough to compare- but I can say for sure that they are both tricky units to play correctly. Stingers seem to be easier to learn, using them is very, very logic based. For some people Mezzos are more intuitive, though.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

Stingers are particularly effective against heroes. Mezzos are particularly effective against commons. Plus they have exoskeletons and 2/squad and a range of only 4.

They are apples and oranges in the metagame. How they play in your house is up to you.



edit: WTH, I'll vote. Mezzos are, for me, more fun. Plus they are Valkrill, the redheaded stepchild of the generals. Go evil! I'll vote Mezzos.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

I haven't even used Mezzodemons, but I've seen them used, They soak damage, but all in all Stingers rule.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

Stingers by far...very far. I'm not sure if Mezzos are better squad killers: Stingers can get 3 attacks of 3, 9 overall
Mezzos(vs commons) can get 2 attacks of 4, 8 overall
It can't be debated that Mezzos are better hero killers, we all know that's not true. Stingers get another attack, activation, and ability to drain for 5 points less. Mezzos get their exoskeleton, which is very good, but not worth what you have to sacrifice to play Mezzos instead of Stingers.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

It has more to do with the format than a straight up comparison in a vacuum.

Mezzo's shine in board control scenarios (camping glyphs or controlling key chokepoints) and also do well in smaller points formats where there might be less frequent amounts of massive squadscape opposition.

For example, killercactus won with them in a rolling rumble, 415 point format at last year's Ohio NHSD.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

Mezzos do have great board control ability, I'm not denying that they aren't good and have their pros but I think the Stinger's pros greatly outshine the Mezzo's.

Re: Mezzos or Stingers?

Stinger's don't serve WotC's crappy redundant general that was shoehorned into the setting unnecessarily.
