  • Quote from JimMorr: “It is exactly how it looked like a year ago... No surprises here. And despite being feared we are far from overperforming... My experience with catapults tells me they are too random to take one. Too often a single catapult will blow up doing nothing. A pair of them has some predictable performance. I try running an abom and a single mill. And... A single large model with Fortitude is just a target for everything with Flaming. Either dies instantly or to keep it alive I need…

  • not sure why pointing at me :p My suggestion was something like: DE: Lightning Reflexes, Black Weapons providing reroll 1's in wounding, Black Armor providing 3++ against toxic attacks. No Plate Armor, no AP-resist. HE: Distracting, no Lightning Reflexes anymore, White Armor providing 6++ always and 3++ against flaming. No Plate Armor, no AP-resist. SE: Hard Target, no Lightning Reflexes anymore, Green Armor providing something fluffy dunno. No heavy armor. Something like that should be decided …

    Hm, this is a nice graph, but doesn't tell much about performance.

    Quote from faramir: “Quote from Pellegrim: “The spread aint bad. Rember that, you fat hat, before you get mad. ” Well the 3 elves army are bottom 5 but that's another subject of discussion... ” Do we have any prove for that statement?

  • just brainstorming when hearing LR is questionable as all elven rule: HE: Distracting SE: Hard Target DE: Lightning Reflexes And for the armor discussion: Yes some HE have a special kind of armor. HE should be in general equipped with better armor than DE imho. But DE should have the deadlier weapons. Maybe DE could have armor that protects against toxic attacks? Or some other kind of attack-specialrule. And the weapons of the DE could also provide a special kind of situational bonus, not just t…

    Haha, and meanwhile in DH forum, they discuss how to improve their shooting units and war machines. Their army is so "weak" and all the shooting they spend points on hardly doesn't do anything in the two turns they get. Funny how different impressions can be

  • I stepped through a lot of other forums, and in average ppl are of the opinion that VS is (among UD obviously) the most feared enemy. Not so sure what is behind, but the Mill is often mentioned as a problematic unit. Do you think it can be solved with points? There will certainly no rules changes in the near future, and if staff agrees with this opinion, I think a price increase of the mill is realistic and of this year. How could a VS army look without Mills? What units would be added instead? …

  • I don't think the Reaver Chariot itself is bad, I see some in the lists. It is just the price as a character mount that seems to be too high.

    Quote from Cam: “Quote from saint_barbara: “If 70% of tournaments (no certainty about exact number globally, I'm speaking about my local scene) are team tournaments nowadays it seems it would be silly to discard the data from them. Players for players is exactly that. Most T9A games happen in team settings, so the rules should be written with team tournaments in focus and based on team tournament data. ” 100% not the case where I am. ” Just a short comment from data analysis side: There are a lo…

    My personal view on those lists: Of course there is the (almost) omnipresent Altar. This is an indication that it is still too effective for its points and the rest of the army maybe not effective enough. In the core section, the situation seems to be not as a problem as the public opinions might indicate. There are even Corsairs and Blades. Only the Auxiliaries seem to be really not competitive enough. In the special section I see a healthy mix of units, which looks positive. Maybe some few Jud…

  • Core units are not so much questionable like special units when both show up often.

  • I think one key feature of the DE could be that even their shooting units are good in close combat. Among comparable shooting units across the game, DE could have the best in close combat. Repeater Auxiliaries should be better in cc than HE and SE archers; dark riders should be better in cc than Elein Reavers and Heath Riders; raven cloaks (is that their name) should be better in cc than pathfinder and grey watches (or whatever their name is). I know all this is already now the case, but it shou…

    right, no slaves ?? Wtf

  • Tbh, I'm really surprised and disappointed about the lists. Did not expect it to be so severe. Seems like internal balance is not really good here in VS. Other armies have a lot larger variation in list building Imho here are too much of: Demon, Pendulum, Lightning Rod, Disciples, Dreadmills and Catapults On the other hand there are not enough: Tyrant, Assassin, Slaves, Rat-at-Arms, Gutter Blades and (all 3) Weapon Teams
