It is very clear to me that I can’t win the early game board. All of blues answers to such an aggressive start are anemic. I’m looking to slam him midgame and maybe stall to tech III. I’m looking for a super early tech II & judgment day. I have to be VERY CAREFUL to not lose the early game too hard. Probably tech censorship council to hamper any combo wombo Blood tech but idk what to actually spec in. I might go full blown truth tech.

Oh boy is this a mess. I didn’t build tech II which may or may not be a huge mistake.

There went the hammer! Now he is economically ahead with a tech II that I desperately need to build. He could also reverse this board pretty quick with crashbarrows. But DAMN did that feel good!

I think I need to win another gambit to really come out ahead. It’s called getting censorship council into place before I die & nailing community service.

Yup me dead. My best lines here are a surprise rook kill (manufactured truth) or build a tech II then have nothing to show for it. I think I have a few ideas of how I managed to fumble the early game so badly, but I probably should have gone Bluecoat+Oni turn 1 and built tech I on turn 2.

GG, @EricF


#16

gg

T1 pig is fine against White due to the 50/50 of Hookshot on T2, and a free hero kill.
The main thing I see is your T2/T3 lack of threats letting me build up for free. Traffic director instead of a hero on T2, meant I had 2+ fewer hp to go through later in the game, and he isn’t threatening enough for me to pay any attention to him. T3 tower instead of a Tech II let me take the tech initiative, and pretty much the game from there. Between Safe Attacking + Savior + Sensei and his Advice, Tower isn’t that effective against White starter.


#17

Except your turn 2 board was even scarier and luck of the draw( or simply a midband rook)would just mean a dead hero.
