    He wasn't the CEO of fantasy flight for awhile. He took over as head of asmodee NA, which is the North American arm of the parent company of FF, Plaidhat, Spacecowboys, Catan, Ect… His leaving really doesn't change anything at Fantasy Flight itself AFAIK.

    Runewars 2.0. Run it on an app with no points on the cards themselves. Seems to work well for Xwing. Now we just have to wait a few years for the new edition >.<

    Well, to be fair, 2.0 is really pretty new, so we haven't had a chance to see if it will work. That being said, It's an objectively better system compared to costs on cards. Thats not a debate. If they use it correctly or not, is.

    I don't understand how you could think her knife ability is that good then. I'm sorry, but I really don't. I've been playing her for over 2 years now, and I have never once thought that her ability was even a little OP. If you didn't have to take a squishy hero into the middle of melee, and attack at a 4 (later than a bunch of other heroes and even a few units) to do it, then yeah. But, you do have to do those things,which means its very hard to get off without her getting rocked right back... as it should be. How exactly is it OP?

    My girlfriend used her today mixed with the seeker missile (?) Shadow card to make a good bit of aember against me. Any turn she called shadow, she would just tap bad penny to reap, tap seeker to do one damage, kill bad penny, gain an aember from killing something with seeker, then play bad penny back out. It was pretty effective.

    I wish I could blame the list ?, but I've generally gotten pretty good at dancing away with my crossbows after having gone up against some good deathknights lists. Your maneuvering was really on point, and leagues better than mine. It made it one of my favorite games on the day even with the lopsided beating. Thanks again for the game, and I hope to see you all up this way again for worlds next year.

    I realize that most people in this thread have seen the FAQ by now, but in case someone else comes looking:

    My best advice: if you are having trouble beating something, run it yourself if you can. I usually learn the weaknesses of a list really fast when I put it on the table myself.

    TallTonyB reacted to FranquesEnbiens in Discussion Time: Are Uthuk too strong?   
    In my experience so far, the Latari I have played against have had a few things that I found difficult:
    -Small quantities of damage (2-4 at a time), but lots of it. It might not seem like a lot, but that can wear down Uthuk if used well. 
    -Fire Rune archers: this actually does a good bit of damage as well. And while you are helping the Uthuk somewhat by flipping to double red, you are also putting an extra wound on a Thresher or Ravos every time you shoot.
    If you can hold the unit up for a bit, for example, a single 2x1 Deepwoods with Fire Rune will do 2-4 wounds per shot on a Thresher or Ravos, so the ability to focus fire if you set up well is actually scary. 
    -Scions, while less effective against Uthuk (so many ways to get around Immobilize), can still be decent blockers. I have had games where Scions held up a Thresher or Ripper (or even Ravos) unit longer than I expected, which can be enough to chip that extra damage in and weaken them significantly.
    -Latari does MSU well, so they can get that consistent small damage that is much scarier to low armor, high wound units, and potentially just grind you down.
    -They also have some tricks: Maegan's abilities, Metered March Leonx, and some of their unexplored (locally for me) upgrades, as well as Lay of the Land now, and some units coming that look strong.
    If you are looking to build an army tailor-built to defeat Uthuk, I think you can do it with Latari quite well(@Zetan and I tested that theory, and found it to work) - the real question is how that fares against the field. 
    I have also had games where I have rolled over Latari, so it really depends on the build, deployment, objective, all that stuff. I think they require you to play really well and carefully, because if your deployment is bad or your setup collapses, Uthuk just hits harder. If Uthuk deploys well and plays aggressively, it shifts the burden to the Latari player to weather the attack and just start working away at it. Part of it, I think, is knowing you'll take some losses and being patient, and figuring out how you get to the turning point where you can push ahead.

    This forum really helps spread the panic about Uthuk, it really does. :)

    If you read these forums regularly the first thing you pick up on is that Uthuk are WAY too strong, never lose, every unit is OP, undercosted and if you play against them, you may as well turn around, bend over and prey they go gentle. Whats more, Keth'ra is going to demonstrate UNLIMITED POWAH and prove that she is the daughter of Emperor Palpatine and Gorgemaw is going to do stuff to your army in such a way that even the most devote Hentai artist would blush. 

    Now when you finally hit the table against Uthuk, you have that mindset. Instead of thinking on how you can win, your train of thought is actually "How can I not lose so badly." That right there, causes more damage than Ravos in range 1 of an entire army and it just gets worse from there.

    It's thematic I guess, the Ynnfernal horde is actually spreading fear and dread throughout the realms, they seem unstoppable and everyone is crying out for a hero to step forward and be the ultimate counter. People are preying that Ursarkar E. Creed himself jumps universes and brings his Tactical Genius to the fore and stops the tide dead in its tracks. Well . . that isn't going to happen.
    The reality is, Uthuk do lose. They can lose. They can be outplayed. They can be played badly. Not every engagement goes their way and they can be held back however, that won't happen until people change their mindset and actually try something different. 

    I would have lost against @Zaaik's Waiqar if one thing had gone differently. ONE. It all came down to his 2 x 2 Deathknights missing my 3 x 2 Berserker unit by an inch. AN INCH!! If he had landed that, he would have smashed two/three trays off me and my dial reveal would have been wasted. Instead, what actually happened was I charged HIM and then done 15 points of damage and gained 20 objective points. (Red Hit, Red Hit, Blue Hit + Reaver with two moral icons + Serrated Spines with two runes active + two sacrifices)

    Had he of charged me, the combination of his Reanimate Archers and Death Knights would have removed my Berserkers in two turns and I doubt I would have even swung, which would then meant that his Death Knights would flank my Flesh Rippers (earning 20 points) and threaten the flank of my entire army. His Archers would have killed Ravos and/or stopped him from chewing through the Reanimate block which in turn would have meant that Ardus would have had 1 wound left because the only way he was taking damage when fighting my Flesh Rippers was thanks to Ravos and his hunger aura.

    That right there, that ONE mistake is what made the game a 9 - 2 win for me. 

    I think that identifying WHERE the match was lost/won is more useful then just convincing yourself that Uthuk are OP and it's a done deal.

    I am slowly writing up a whole AAR, but the short is:
    Game 1: 10-1 over 3 dial Daqan
    Game 2: 8-3 over a synergy Daqan list (4th place after Swiss)
    Game 3: 8-3 over Latari mixed bag list (2nd or 3rd after Swiss I think)
    Game 4: 8-3 over Latari archer star list (Parakitor)
    Top cut game 1: A 9-2-ish win over Waiqar
    Finals: 6-5 Win over Uthuk (TGall). Really more of a 5.6-5.4 win
     
    One guy brought my exact list because I’m the kind of shmuck who posts his tourney list before going to a tourney. In a nice ego-padding turn of events, my understanding is my game 3 opponent and Parakitor both beat that player.
