New FFA Table talk


#81

Personally, the forums drive me nuts even in a 2 player game. I never considered myself a visual player but constantly have to cross reference codexcarddb and I constantly miss things.


#82

Yeah, I have difficulties with play-by-forum as well (Thankfully other forumers usually notice my mistakes and kindly point them out!), but I really appreciate the ability to take the time to carefully plan out turns. I do feel like I’m gradually getting better at it, though.


#83

So, does anyone have any idea of how I stop dreamfire annihilating bob with his massive board? I would normally be quite happy to wipe out most of his units, but now that just puts me in a really low base health scenario, so I just get wiped out instead…


#84

Doom Grasp / Moment’s Peace? Also, I think 4 of those Stingers have been killed so far, so it’s not quite as bad as it looks at first glance.


#85

Grave only has 2hp, and won’t trigger Bugblatter, kill him somehow?


#86

As nice as momments Peace is, it only stops units attacking me, not bob. Right lets give this a go


#87

@Shadow_Night_Black Quince’s midband says “Trash it at end of turn”, so lending the Mirror Glaxx to Bob would be useless, as far as I understand it.


#88

Fortunately Glax says that it can’t leave play from non combat damage while you have gold, and Bob has gold…


#89

Right! Forgot that little bit of synergy, cool move!

About the skeleton you lent him, though - does it keep anti-air? I just asked about that in the rules thread.


#90

Unfortunately not, Skeletal archery is only for my skeletons, and That is now Bob’s skeleton until his turn (Although I get the patrol bonuses…).


#91

@Shadow_Night_Black You didn’t end up playing Dreamscape, right?

Also, can anyone confirm Nekoatl’s base HP? I have it at 13 after being pinged 3 times by holytispon’s Bugblatter.


#92

I can agree with that base health (unfortuneatly)

And what dreamscape? I don’t see a dreamscape! What sort of madman would tech a dreamscape in FFA??? (hurriedly edits post)
@Dreamfire, I take it by the long silence that you have the same problem I had in being a few short of winning and are now trying to give yourself another turn :wink:


#93

Close to winning, me?? No, I just took my time to think how best to keep everyone safe from sudden Stampedes and illusion copies of illusion Gryphons!


#94

Surprise! (chars)


#95

:heart: you too Neko, but I think you forgot to add a :codexzane: emoticon


#96

Btw, I didn’t break your base out of spite, revenge, or any other sort of personal grudge. I just wanted to break someone’s base, and your post happened to be the one I was looking at at the time.


#97

How exactly does if work now? We each get a turn?


#98

You each take 1 turn, then compare base HP. If they’re the same at that point, repeat.


#99

Except the one small problem that Quince’s midband doesn’t work on tech 3 units, so you only have two gryphons @Nekoatl


#100

It might not be relevant considering Shadow’s last comment, but I’m still curious: if a couple of players make it to sudden death, is the rest of the board still considered to be in existence? Things like, just off the top of my head, a defeated or eliminated player’s Bugblatters.
