LDT2: Hobusu ([Anarchy]/Strength/Growth) vs ARMed_Pirate ([Discipine]/Ninjutsu/Bashing)


#22

!

Man that was unexpected. I was totally expecting you to clear my blocker with Zane, Dinosize the Barbarbar and boost him with Arg, and just hit my base for 21.

Take a look at my next hand/thoughts.

@Bob199


#23

No Dinosize, sadly, and got the Gunship before I could build a Tech Lab for it. Figured you could get another FDS before I could shut you down.

Edit: I definitely wouldn’t have expected TPoS, so even if I’d taken out a hero it would have been true wrong one!


#24

uhm, well, DB has overpower, so u could have had him killing both sets and monk, and maybe zane taking down tower or something?


#25

Oh good! I was hoping the feint would work out!

I figured you’d OP and kill Sets, and I’d never see here alive again. I had a Fox’s Den School to sneak stuff through, and I’d be teching in 2x Wrecking Ball to take the final point of damage after TPoS, or just his midband if I thought I could get him to survive a turn. I’d be sending my whole army to take out your Barbar, maybe Arg in the meantime.

It was a REALLY tough decision last turn between my two Porcupines, my two GN’s, my Flagbearer, my FDS, and my FDSchool. I had to try to figure out which combination would cause the most threat/throw you off track the most. I guess I chose wisely!


#26

Realizing I didn’t say before, but good game, sir!
You had me on the edge of my seat, and I felt like I was taking a huge risk that last turn. Heck, you had me half-convinced you’d play Guargum to block and another SotP or Stampede or something (though I was more worried about the Dinosize or a 2nd Charged Barbarbar).
The strength strat in general threw me for a loop (shouldn’t have; such an obvious back-up).

Well played!


#27

I’m just glad it felt close from your end, since I never really felt like I was in a good position except the turn I took out your Tech II. Good game!


#28

I think it was worth playing this out, fwiw. Taxman + Rook to maxband (off an overpower Sets kill) + Tech lab is 10g, Patrol Arg + Rook + Taxman. He’d have to choose between Snapping out Rook or Arg and TPoS, and you’re a good shot to draw Dinosize or Gunship. Probably was going to be very close


#29

I’m willing to keep playing it, but since he can TPoS next turn it would be a race to see whether I can find lethal before he gets a single burn spell… Maybe surrendering was hasty, but I wasn’t optimistic about my chances.


#30

If you want to play it out just to see what would’ve happened, I’m down. (:


#32

Now that things have calmed down for me, here’s what would have happened if we continued…

That is rough. I have to gamble. Is it better for me to kill some of your patrol? I think not. Zane gives you too many possibilities… And going down on cards lowers my chance of drawing what I need. Enh. Let’s do it anyway…

Hrmm. I’m really going to get risky, I think.

Well, I saved a Ninja and drew FDSchool. He can’t build Tower, so he can’t stop the Ninja. And I might draw Wrecking Ball. I took 2 to build Surplus, which is the same as I’d have taken from Arg’s boost on BarBarBar, but now he can’t play any other spells. What if the Tech Lab was a feint and he was going Dinosize or another SotP?

I either lose on this turn or win, I think. It’ll depend on whether he got Gunships to kill my ninjas (and which ninjas).

Sparkshot

When attacking a patroller, deals 1 damage to an adjacent patroller.


Sparkshot does stack. A unit with 2 instances of sparkshot will get to deal 2 damage to an adjacent patroller or 1 damage to each of 2 adjacent patrollers. — sharpo


As far as I can tell, Grave only has one Sparkshot, so do you want him to elbow Rook or Taxman?


#35

Thanks! Rook. I don’t want Rook to be able to take on an Elite Glorious Ninja and survive to deal damage.


#36

At least when I lose, it won’t be due to lack of effort!

Also, I think you might have forgotten about something I had on the board…

Rook should be 4/6 (1 life) because of the sparkshot. No armor in elite slot.

Also, Gunpoint should’ve stolen 1 of my floats. (: Would you want to do anything else with the extra cash?


#38

…Rook started your Turn 8 with 6 HP, took exactly 1 damage from Sparkshot, then was healed by Spirit of the Panda, as I noted at the start of Turn 9, returning him to 6 HP. That’s what I was referring to when I said I thought you’d forgotten something.

No, if I’d wanted to play anything more $1 wouldn’t have made a difference with what was in my hand.

#39

Thanks! Don’t know how I missed that!

@Hobusu
Also, my base should have been at 16 after the Tower replacement. Would that have changed anything?


#40

Funny enough, the only difference is that Rook technically still has 2 lives because he was healed. Two Lives means that he would have survived taking lethal damage, meaning he could still hit through swift strike regardless.

No, I feel that denying Tech II is more important than straight Base damage at the moment. If only I had Snapback to let me kill Troq too… :wink:


#41

The Tech II choice was good on your part. If you hadn’t broken it, Ninja Dave would have been invisible and taken you out. As it is, I did not get lucky.
