In the french qualifs, the winning team had a DE player, and apparently he has the worst scoring level of his team...Spanish team championships played this weekend, enough DE players and some in the top teams.86+67+66+59+57+52+42+40+37+35 = average 54.1 with alpha 3, the 86 points man saved the day!I personally interact with what can be considered the most successful DE generals in the international scene (Spain, Russia, Germany, USA, Belgium, France, Australia are all represented, to state a few), all of whom have played dozens of games with the book and have been giving constant feedback about it. We've also had four major international tournaments since the release of the original Alpha (NYR, W8MW, WTC and WLTDO) as well as a handful of local ones played on UB.
Maaaan give us the demons designers. Just the guy with 86 points makes a really good weekend, and he is very experienced international player, Charlie Romero, and the 67-66 guys are in the top teams too...
No one played Manticore, even res5 LoL, No one played Pegasus. Only 1 guy played Judicators, the rest played obsidian guard.
What I still struggle to swallow in this new version, is that for months, some players here have complained, whinned about the harpies, 8 size for 160, and DE team have explained why it's legit and balanced game wise.
And now, the same team has hugely nerfed this unit.
I happily painted 8 harpies and played them extensively this year. Now this unit will be back in a case.
Really bad work guys on that version.
