Assemble + Boarding action + Assault = too powerful?

32 posts in this topic

Pulling out Morty from Terra I feel would leave the Traitors too weak on the ground and risk the Imperials getting a Space Port Victory. Or even if not Space Port Victory, then allowing the Imperials to take back the north-west space port where Mortarion starts at (in scenario 1). If the Imperials hold both northern ports, Traitors have to secure the southern ones, move up north and take both ports that the Imperials have had time to reinforce, which could lead to a Holdout Victory.

I like the things as they stand. As Traitor, you have to get a feel for when the Imperials are ready to launch their attack against Horus and bring him down to Terra or mess up with the Imperial plan using your own order cards, forcing them to take bury actions.

Yeah, I agree.  It is not too powerful.  In my opinion, the traitor should hardly ever move the initiative more than two spaces in his turn anyway (to avoid stuff like that).  Another valid option is port landing or drop pods to put Horus onto the map.  Once Horus is on the map, especially if he's far away from the action, it's very unlikely that he'll die.  Especially in cases of the scenarios that give you ways to lower the cost of actions, it is a very good idea to just drop Horus to Terra immediately.  Anyway, like I said, it's not like that's impossible to counter or plan ahead for.

Sky Fortress + Titans Stride the Earth can really put a damper on Horus's plans, SF brings the pain, a huge mass of Imperials, most likely forcing Horus to retreat, TStE Event follows (gotta work the Initiative Track naturally), allowing a free attack against Horus with another big mass, this time Horus can't retreat anymore (unless you've passed a Refresh Phase too).

True, but a later death beats a sooner one. 

I don't know, if you're going to lose, might as well lose early lengua.gif . But that's only for the losers demonio.gif .
