CoV Listener Questions

Hey all,

While the other thread will be for links to our new episodes, continuing the discussion from episodes, feedback, and suggestions, this thread will be for our new segment: Listener Questions. Please post questions about pretty much anything Scape related! We'll cover one-two questions each episode in a short 10-minute segment.

Thanks for listening!

Re: CoV Listener Questions

What do you think the best group of armies is for the 4x400 format?

(i.e. what's your opinions on the best distribution of top figures to form the best 4 400 point armies).

For the sake of definitions, let's say your goal is to win all 4 rounds, so 'best' means each army has a reasonable chance to win against the other top armies you may see (if played by a player of comparable skill level to you) and none of them have multiple matchups where they almost auto-lose.

I revised my own group of armies for this format after my glad-blast army got absolutely steamrolled at Gencon 2019 by 10thx4+Raelin while trying (and failing) to slowly march over the central hills on Trouble Once Lurked Beneath and am curious how close it is or isn't to what ya'll think.

Thanks for the question! This should fit in nicely to the topic of our next episode.

Re: CoV Listener Questions

Not a question but a discussion topic: What's in an Order Marker? Break down each type of unit:
  • Bread and Butter
  • Defenders
  • Menacers
  • Cheerleaders
  • Sharks
  • Cleanup
  • Niche

For a discussion question, you can use my most recent Unit Debate # 73 Deathreavers vs Raelin the Kyrie Warrior - basically asking what is the best unit in Heroscape.

BTW - subscribed and downloaded - I know what I'll listen to on the road to work in the morning.

Thanks for the suggestions and interest! We’ll definitely be using the roles when discussing units.

Of course. The idea - as I'm sure you saw already - is that it will be relatable for everyone who has even been one time to a local event somewhere.

Absolutely, and it will also help prepare someone who is thinking about attending GenCon for the first time (which, if they can, they should).
