This extra gold worker is killin me… I think it’s worth to break the tech 1, so let’s go with that. Hope next turn can be Rook + Bird’s Nest + Tech1 + Worker, and start some shit with my attackers. I’ll worker the other bird’s nest. Surprise Attack JIC

My Thoughts

Let’s run through some options here…

  1. Zane + Surprise Attack + Pillage + Mad Man. I don’t worker OR tech1 (that’s obv bad), but I can break tech1 again AND put base on 11 AND have a massive board. Obv downsides but I might be able to rush it down.

  2. Original plan of Rook + Birds + tech1 + worker. I don’t get to really attack at all, and might get beat up by Reversal or Snapback, but I DO know he doesn’t have Grappling hook, so that’s a plus.

  3. Zane + Mad Man to get the kill, give levels to Rook. I have to pick between tech1 and worker in this case though… That’s a bit rough, but I can probably live w/ no worker and then next turn worker + birds + t2

Option 1 sounds like the most fun and hype thing, but option 3 feels like the safest thing and playing to my win cons… Idk, tough call.

Let’s do a little math on #1
His base would end my turn on 11hp. I’d be laying Lvl 3 Zane + Mad Man + Dog + Ram. If I draw sharks, I could have 3+3+3+1+2+3=15. If I don’t draw sharks, I could have 1shove + 4+2bombaster exp+1+2+3=3patrol and 10atk, so I’d have to draw Charge or Pillage for lethal. Alternatively I could Mid Zane with my float, and that’d put the base on 10hp. All of this makes for a tricky situation, though, if he snaps Zane out. I would need to tech Dinosize and Sharks probably.

Yknow what, fuck it, sounds like a blast, let’s go for it!

Yea, i was doomed. i think you were right about being P1 having quite an advantage. I thought I could leverage the gold advantage from mono AND p2, but i didnt win the gamble on rambaster and threw off my rythm completely.

Let’s see what map is next!

1 Like

This does feel like one map where P2 can overcome, since the extra worker is worth more and it’s harder for P1 to be aggro w/ less gold to use. I definitely gambled going for Rambaster on turn 3 along with the Surprise Attack tech (and lucky draw), but it was pretty tight!

P2 White against Red is just tough in general though. Hard to defend
