View Full Version : What would you do against this team?
I lost a rather embarrassing game against this team
(U) Nightcrawler 83
(R) Dr Strange 64
(E) Swampthing 84
(R) Firelord 66
total 297 points
What would you suggest I use against it - 300 point limit
U Flash 101
2x E. Harlequinn = 72 173
E. Booster Gold 36 209
V. AIM Medic 17 226
R. Black Panther 27 253
E. Bullseye 31 284
Some filler character for the last 16 points.
Someone else suggested this Flash/Harley strategy. As long as you position Harley where she'll have Line of Sight to Flash he can be perplexed +1 to his damage by each one knocking him up to a 3 damage attack. He can be Taxied by Booster. Now here's my thought on it being that it seems you are mixing Marvel and DC. Bring Black Panther in and outwit Toughness, Invulnerbility, Impervious ... whatever. Best part is Booster can taxi him 10 spaces and then Flash has 20 movement and can keep going after he's attack thus giving him like a 30 space movement from his start up point. I'd go after Firelord first. His RCE and range plus his damge is devastating. Swampthing isn't too bad as long as you aren't base to base with him.
The Harleys dont have to go into the board that far as all they need is line of site and 10 range. booster has tougness and has a good attack and speed to get away if he needs to. You can further attack your target with Bullseye for an additional 3 clix of damge. So in short if you were to use Flash perplexed by two harlequinns and a bullseye you could do a total of 6 clix of damage and still run away to hide. Flash doesn't lose much as he takes hits. Nightcrawler will be coming to you and he'll probably be taxied in by Strange. I imagine Swapthing will not be taxied out because why would you want to lose the opportunity to attack with these two flyers who have very colorful dial filled with range attacks.
Hey if he does take advantage.
Just my thought. Good Luck
Thanks OTM - there's a few figures I never would have thought of playing against this team of his. I was going to try (E) Batman at least, to shut down some of that hit and run power he's got. but I didn't know what else to really use to get him.
That Firelord has a glass jaw so I think you're right about hitting him first. And I think I may end up using Boomerang for his range against Dr. Strange.
Thanks again :)
I think I'm going to try this:
(V) Harley Quinn
(E) Booster gold
My only criticism of that would be that you may be better off with 2 Harley so you can up Flash to three damage or use one to perplex an opponent defense down 1 while increasing either attack or damage one on one of your group. I never knew how good perplex was until this Flash/Harley combo. It Rocks. -T.
PS. Just think you can also Increase Bullseyes Range 1 or his Damge or both by using both Harley's There are so many diferent possibilities it isn't funny. The real clincher her is you can take down the heavy hitters early and snipper off the remaining characters with your Booster Gold and other who can act when you rest your Flash, Bullseye figs.
If you were to perplex any of Bullseye's values he would loose his RCE on that attack... making him pretty well useless. Nothing wrong with using it on The Flash, tho.
Give this team a try
Sorry they are all Marvel, that is all I play.
Firelord is the top damage guy, but Nightcrawler is the biggest pain in the butt. If you can set it up, use Controller or Moondragon to MC one on the other, it really doesn't matter which one. Let the range guys set up to take out Swamp Thing, and Sandman and Ock can run some serious damage on Dr.Strange. Getting Nightcrawler is key, he can hit and run all day if you let him, so take him out first. FL is a tough guy, but in that rookie form one shot from boomer and pyro can take him out. Try and control as many of his guys as possible, push them all the time, and use Ock for perplex. If you want to insert DC guys into the mix go for it, I don't know them very well though. Just a thought, good luck.
I stand corrected in reference to bullseye. You can not perplex his RCE. But you can still increase his attack or range. Still pretty good especially when trying to hit high defense characters with Energy Deflection or simply high numbers
You cant perplex bullseye at all if he is gonna use rce. What you can do is perplex is the defence down on the fig he's trying to nail.
The U Flash strategy is interesting, but if you can't take Firelord out in one turn, you probably want to take out the medic first.
