What matchups are we looking for?

Post  Buchi on Fri 17 Jun - 11:32

As we have started to discuss armylists, I find it a bit difficult to do so without knowing the intended strategy for our pairing.

Alan, would you mind to shed some light on how (ideally) you would like to pair us based on the armylists in their current state? Which army shall take on what kind of opponents? Which armies are destined to be put up first, while the opponent puts up 2 armies to choose from?

I would love to have a clearer picture on what you hope to achieve with the lists and what the reasoning behind them is.

Thanks in advance for your efforts!

ok, exams finished. let's speak about real pairings Very Happy


we'll have:


Daemons
Dark Elves
Vampires
Lizards
Skaven
Dwarves
Empire
Orcs&Gobs - High Elves


Armies that can be divided in 3 categories:


Armies that try to score 20-0 :

Vampire
Daemons
Dark Elves


Armies for 15-5:

Skaven
Lizardmen
Orcs&Gobs - High Elves


Armies that try to stay on 10-10:

Dwarves
Empire






Obviously there are some restrictions depending on opponent armies (for example deamons cannot play against shooting armies or Dark Elves because they are easily countered)




My opinion about the new paring method is that this year will be really difficult to have easy matchups. I think it's easier to be thrown that to respond on ennemy armies because you can chose among 2 matches. (obviously throw vampires when the others still have daemons and DE is stupid Very Happy )
So for me is better not to write lists for a single match (what you could do in the past) but lists that can play against more ennemies.



Obviously it's possible to create some easy match where a 20 can be scored, don't know if you understand what i mean.




So in my opinion is better to have more armies that can easily score 14-6 without taking too many risks than have armies that score 20-0 and armies that make draws.

Thanks for the reply!

I understand you very well and am thinking along the same lines in general.

What is of real help is your categories, as this is giving an indication, on what you expect from the army and in which direction we should be looking in trying to optimize the lists. Even though I have to say, that I am quite happy so far with what is proposed and would like to thank you, Alan, for your work!
