Let’s say there is a tournament forthcoming and you know that every faction will be equally represented. Except, you have the supernatural ability to banish three factions from the event entirely, which three would you pick? Keep in mind, I am not talking about certain lists or certain players, I am just curious if (given the choice) which three factions would you choose to not have to face again soon? For myself, the list looks like this:
- Legion of Everblight
…in no particular order really. That isn’t because I think they are ‘broken’ or anything, but just because, at least, for me – these are the factions that give me fits. One of the best players in my local shop plays Trolls, and he makes every game with him a slug-out attrition fest, and I think those games can be exhausting. Cygnar’s ranged game can be irritating to deal with, and running into a Destruction scenario against Epic Haley with two Storm Striders and a Stormwall put me over the top. That list makes me want to vomit, to be honest. There is also the general rules flaunting that Legion is known for, which can also get a little old. Perhaps I have seen a bit too much Ravagore spam lately.
Anyhow, that is how I am feeling about a certain trio of factions lately. I am sure it won’t last, but it got me wondering. What three factions do you most hate to play right now?
