The Hero Championship 2014

Recommended Posts

AN: Eowyn: Hard to pick between to core set classics, but there are lots of heroes to replace Legolas in the attacking role, but few can replicate what Eowyn does

AO: Elrohir: more interesting than Frodo, and the best defender in the game

AP: Boromir: one of my most used heroes and key to my favorite style of play (attachment heavy super-hero decks)

AQ: Beregond: tough call, so I vote for Gondor

AR: Gandalf: hoping he wins it all.  A thematic and gameplay win

AS: Galadriel: another tough one because Haldir is great, but Galadriel has so much potentiall

AT:  Celeborn: the anchor to the best new deck type

AU: Aragorn: so much new utility with the doomed cards, and he was already a great hero

AN - Legolas

AO - Frodo

AP - Elrond

AQ - Beregond

AR - Sam

AS - Haldir

AT - Celeborn

AU - Aragorn

 

I missed the last round, but no surprise to see Haldir hammer Faramir! Which is a shame really.

 

And the seeds are already shaken up a bit, which is good to see!

Choices seem to continually get harder but after a few days of thinking..... I've got my votes! ;)

 

AN- Eowyn, she's just so crucial for questing although Legolas is amazing with that 2 progress but others are competing for his spot these days

AO- Frodo, so innocent sipping that tea ;) yet super great at questing/defending/damage soaking

AP- Elrond, with a Burning Brand I think he's the best defender in the game, I don't even use Vilya and still think he's amazing but Boromir is also great

AQ- Beregond, that defense wall..

AR- Gandalf, good for any sphere and any need throughout quests

AS- Galadriel, all the way to victory my Lady!!

AT- Mablung.. oh wait lol..... Celeborn! way more exciting to play with

AU- Aragorn, love the threat reset and Lore is my favorite :)

I'm always curious how differently results would have turned out if certain heroes were seeded differently but this method of instant death is still super fun!

 

Right now the sphere's are equally represented for these final 16 heroes, only one less for Leadership and then the odd Neutral Gandalf. I think this shows that the developers are keeping equal love and goodness for all spheres. :)

AN   Legolas - both heroes are amazing... but Legolas is much more fun!

AO   Frodo - Elrohir is awesome, but is somewhat restricted into a specific deck type.

AP   Boromir (T) - Boromir is much more interesting to use than Elrond

AQ   Beregond

AR   Sam Gamgee - a much more versatile hero than Gandalf (in terms of decks he can fit in)

AS   Haldir - really tough call, but I don't have Galadriel yet and Haldir is amazing

AT    Celeborn - creation of a fun new archetype

AU   Eomer - wrecking things with Eomer is fun, and thematically perfect

 

Many more tough choices this time, especially Legolas/Eowyn and Eomer/Aragorn. Go Sam!

AN - Eowyn: Really tough choice. Legolas is great fun and an amazing hero. Eowyn is just so useful in so many quests though.

AO - Frodo: I like Elrohir, but Frodo is just a great hero and a perfect 'solution card'

AP - Tactics Boromir: Elrond is definitely one of the most powerful heroes around, but the in-built readying of Boromir is just so good.

AQ - Beregond: The tank of all tanks gets my vote again.

AR - Gandalf: I had every intention of voting for Sam, but the cool factor of Gandalf won out at the last minute.

AS - Galadriel: Haldir is a great new herp, but Galadriel barely edges it here.

AT - Celeborn: Great art and foundation for Silvan archetype.

AU - Lore Aragorn - Eomer is lots of fun, but it wouldn't feel right to have no Aragorn representation after this round!

AN -> Legolas : The fact that he can quest in a way, while a tactics Hero, makes him on of my best heroes. Eowyn is very good indeed but I prefer the Elf

 

AO -> Frodo : His abiliity helps way too much

 

AP -> Elrond : Difficult choice, but I like the way Elrond can build decks with Viliya

 

AQ -> Beregond : On of my most used Heroes

 

AR -> Gandalf : The moment I completed the first quest with him I though everything I knew about the game was over 

 

AS -> Galadriel : Haldir is good, but there is no comparison in my mind

 

AT -> Celeborn : Cause he is fresh, with a nice ability , I still find Glorfindel the best hero though

 

AU -> Aragorn : Just because he is Aragorn ... Eomer is a fantastic hero but ...

So many super awesome Tactics heroes that aren't in the lead right now! Of the 4 competing, only Beregond is winning. The other 3 do have some very very tough matchups though and they aren't losing by very much.

 

 

 

I'm impressed that Celeborn is so far ahead of Glorfindel.  People like their silvans!

 

That's true, but I think that mostly people are just sick of Glorfindel and they love to hate him.
