Re: Gimli - Rough Draft

At what point does workshopping transition to playtesting? These designs have received less pushback than I was expecting and I may have some time to playtest later tonight. Though I'm not the most savvy playtester as far as using tournament maps or knowing the most up-to-date competitive armies.

We had a more formal system before, but frankly I'm not sure it's super useful to try following it exactly. The current membership is, at best, off-and-on, and frankly we weren't successful before with the more formal structure.

My suggestion is, if you want to play-test the figure in it's current state, just do so and write up a summary on this thread. The worst that can happen is the card gets changed later and the play-test was just 'fun' instead of being necessarily 'on-point' with where the card ends up. Which isn't a bad thing.

Re: Gimli - Rough Draft

GIMLI BATTLE REPORT
Spoiler Alert!


OVERALL THOUGHTS
Overall Gimli performed very well, save for the occasional whiff on his 5-defense. The Dwarves won 2 and lost 2 but Gimli himself almost always did well (and I self-admit that I'm not that good with the Axegrinders). Dwarven Assault is a terribly fearsome power when combined with his 4 Attack, and the fact that you can get more attacks that turn on top of it with Axegrinders just makes them a killing machine. It's like if the Monks could bond with Master Woo.

Additionally Durin’s Tactics is pretty easy to get and maintain, either against melee armies or against ranged armies’ screens. I didn’t play him against any snipers or kiters like Omicrons or Agents, so I don’t know if he’d fall apart against them (probably not because he still has solid defense without Durin’s Tactics).

Fearless Advantage didn’t come into play much, but I imagine it’d make him even more killer since it is a very strong power, and two attacks for 5 is nothing to sneeze at (as Su-Bak-Na learned the hard way).

I could see bumping him to 170 at minimum for changes, potentially dropping Fearless Advantage if it is a superfluous ability, but we’ll see. I will say that 160+ makes him a very expensive choice of bonding hero for the axegrinders (170 would be as much as Migol and Darrak combined), but it hardly matters at his power level.

Re: Gimli - Rough Draft

These abilities are great, but do you really want 5 attack/6 defense with double attack when engaged with large or huge figures? I would really think Fearless Advantage and Durin's Tactics should not both be on the same card.

I could easily be talked into dropping Fearless Advantage since Gimli is more than good as is and not every unit needs 3 powers.

I think that's the move then.
