I just realized that the last time I posted under this title was back in February. Well, suffice to say I am no closer to winning a Dystopian Wars game today than I was back 3 months ago.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been winning a number of other games (like a game where you DREAD the BALL in a futuristic sports arena, or a DEAD area which is like a ZONE, both games produced by a company that sounds like ANTIC) but still a win in Dystopian Wars is still out of reach.
My latest game on the weekend just gone got me thinking. It was a 1000 point battle and my opponent used 2 battleships and 1 Dreadnought against me – I thought surely that exceeds the 70% restriction for Large models but, surprise to me, it did not. In contrast I was only fielding a single Battleship. I just didn’t have the firepower to match.
I wonder if my lack of large/massive models is my downfall? All my fleets only include a single Battleship and then a Carrier plus/or a Dreadnought – am I not bringing enough firepower to the table?
So I throw the question out to you – the readers of our blog. How many Battleships/Dreadnoughts/Carriers do you commonly field in a game? Do you spam these large units or not? I’d love to hear some of your answers.
I’m not getting to caught up on fleet composition though – version 2.0 (funny we don’t call them editions anymore) will most likely change the way fleets are put together.
So add your answers below in the comments and until next time – watch out for those exploding 6’s!
