Grading out Army Builds/LoadOuts

Recommended Posts

We have three guys locally who are playing this a lot at 200 points. One is running all Daqan, one is running Waiqar with no significant archer presence, and I'm running archer heavy Waiqar. We still don't feel like we have figured out archetypes

its also early enough where people are still "preying on stupidity" because we dont know the ins and outs as well as we do xwing or armada by now.

That kind of play where something sounds overpowered but is in reality easily avoided doesnt work in xwing because everyone knows how to avoid that crap. Not so much in RWM right now.

I still believe the giant blobs of Deathstars are only a thing right now because of the limited unit access. I suspect even by the time we get the Uthuk the Deathstar mentality wont be as common.

I'd rather have 2 2x2 decked out spearmen than 1 3x3 decked out spearmen. Virtually the same cost, technically deadlier overall, lacks shield wall numbers though.

So far, there doesn't seem to be any clearly dominant strategy.

There are a few units that do well in most situations, but so very much of this game depends on the deployment/objective combination and what your opponent is using vs what you may have specialized in that I have my doubts about any clear, concise, limited "meta" ever forming.

The moment you start to feel comfortable in some semblance of a Daqan/Waiqar meta, you'll start facing Latari. The moment that becomes comfortable, some Uthuk are gonna come running at you screaming.

I've also noticed that, in this game, the list you take generally doesn't matter as much as the decisions you make with it based on the board state.

It's a well-balanced game, and well-balanced games aren't easy to pigeonhole.
