Wheel of Fortune tourney game 2
He sets up and it looks like -
I have the unfortunate decision of an obstacle in one deployment center and a forest in the other. This sucks. I chose the forest but it may have been the wrong choice. To any tournament organizers out there, screwing someone with this table set up is fucked up. Don't do it!
Dan is afraid of my feat and knows that he can lose the attrition game very easily. He needs to pick me off from a far and he needs to play smart to do it. He advances but no one goes full bore. My 1 I shoot the Fane Knight way up field, I don't think he can kill him. Halbs shield wall and MHSF run. Halbs get Arcane Shield (I should have put it on the Fane Knight, I thought about it), Kae gets Snipe and the MHSF get Blur. Screw you eyeless sight, hit DEF 17! Kae tags the Carni stealing a fury. Phoenix is out of it. Terrible deployment or late game wonder?
I answer Dan's feat with a feat of my own. He has, in the left zone a Strider, 1 of the Blackfrost and a Shredder. The Mage Hunter Strike Force advances around the house and manages to take out the Deathstrider but thats it. Playing against stelath sucks! That means Kaelyssa has to take out one Blackfrost Shard and a Shredder as they are both stealth due to Grayle's feat. She feats, moves forward and pops them both on some stolen fury. Here is where I fudged up. I planned on her contesting the right hand zone while I took the left. a 16" gun on a 14" control range means I moved too far (I was just in range though). After that, I shifted the Halbs in front of her but didn't get any in the right hand zone! I run the Mage Hunter Assassin in to the zone to get a piece in there. I score a CP. Phoenix is still in a bad position and being jammed by my whole army.
