1st Place North American Championship (Gencon) battle report

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the battle report.  I also learned the value of terrain on closing approach this weekend.  I wasn't paying attention, first terrain was the swamp,which went dead center, so I put spikes on one of the edges halfway inbetweeen.  My opponent did the same, and now my spearstar was 100% stuck to one side for the whole match.

 

Turn 0 is really important in this game in regard to terrain and big units!

Well maybe he's smarter than I am and could figure out how you pm someone.

Hi, I just saw this and was trying to send you a PM but it says that you cannot receive messages.  Perhaps there's a setting in your profile blocking PMs?  Otherwise I think you can just hover your mouse over the username and click the Message button.

Found it!  Appearently there is a slew of stuff that I didn't reset when they switched to Amodee's system.  How long ago was that?  Sheesh, get it together me.

At it's cheapest, this is a $255 army. Unless borrowing pieces obviously... (and that's assuming you purchased the core set from another website that offers it at $70).

2 core, 2 oathsworn, hawthorne, command.  Trade out all your useless skeles. So if you have access to 70$ cores, much cheaper as wouldn't that make the expansions a load cheaper than 25?  It would cost me 300 CAD and tax.  We do not have access to 70$ cores.

2 core is 4 trays, 2 oathsworn is 4 trays (total). This army needs 12 trays of Oathsworn. Also it's cheaper to do one core and the rest oathsworn (and a rune golem pack; $25 for oathsworn and $35 for rune golem. $60 is less than $70). I also didn't take into account the cornicen is in command, so add $25 to mine. If someone wants to trade skeles for oathsworn, assuming you cut cost in half ($35 each for a core) it's still cheaper to get the oathsworn expansion, because that's $25 and you get the same number of oathsworn.

naw, 2 Cores is 8 trays of oathsworn, as I said, trade out all the useless skeles. Cheaper if and only if you only want the oathsworn.  That doesn't really work though.

1 core is 4 trays of oathsworn? I thought it was 4 spearmen 2 oathsworn. If that's the case then absolutely that's the best option.

A core is only two trays of Oathsworn.


I'm not sure where the confusion is.  You walk up to random undead player and say -hey give me your humans and I'll give you all these dead things.  They say excellent and everyone walks away happy.  A core now has twice as many human units and no undead. It was very very easy to pawn off 1/2 a core.

The confusion is if there are only 2 oathsworn in a starter, you pay $70 for 2 oathsworn and the waiqar you're going to trade for 2 more oathsworn from their starter, this means $70 for 4 oathsworn, where you can get 4 oathsworn for $50 with two oathsworn expansions.

2 more oathsworn, another golem, and 4 trays more spearmen to collect dust with that's ~ 17$ of golems and 50$ of spears.  so it is more fair to say 2/7 trays for 35$, so whatever 2/7ths of 35 is.  10$?

Yes, it was really helpful to see what you do and how you played it. It's interesting you played 4 Daqan and 1 Waiqar. Makes me wonder if there were more Daqan players in total, or you just happened to go down the "Daqan Side".

Honestly I was just saying this is the cheapest way to get his army. That's all.

You know... my wife is reading this and she doesn't need to know how much I spend on Runewars!:P

From what I've heard, the tournament was pretty well split 50/50 for humans vs undead.  I think I just got lucky (or unlucky) to have all human opponents.
