Fnarr I'm pretty certain we aren't at equilibrium with regards to list building yet. Once we are; I'm predicting you'll see about 85-95% inclusion.Do we have the top 3 ETC DH lists from both years handy?
Actually dont even need that, 2 of those 6 are me, and even if everyone else took VS (they didn't afaik), thats still 67% uptake and far from an auto-include.
Top lists dont have 100-something points of space for something with no distinct purpose. I took 5 rangers one of those years, because i needed an extra scorer, they costed just a bit more than a VS. Other similar costed options are a flame cannon/ballista, or 2 breath weapons.
There is no chance 85% of the people take the same decision to include an unit that is useless in many matches, because let's face it VS may be one of the most match up dependent unit we have. Moreover since they have no real list archetypes they will be the first to go when points run low (they are just good never necessary).
I predict many other units will see more play than them.
