The amazonians suck. :-)
Early game they have a real advantage with the dodge skill. And indeed i performed quite well in my first two games, but i've struggled against any upgraded or special players.
I've wasted chances to gain SP points (easy passing, simple moves etc) and have frankly, been butfucked by the dice.
In hindisght i think i should have gone for a hardier team with a star player who could dodge/sidestep etc, rather than the glass cannons i have now.
I'm slowly getting to grips with the tactics and play styles, however i'm still not positioning my teams well.
that and i hate this game.
Oddly enough I still quite like the Skaven. I think my error occured right at the start with no re-rolls, and having MY ENTIRE FUCKING TEAM MURDERED BY SYPHALLITIC INBRED DWARFS didn't help. Literally half my lineup is made up of temporarys, so any experience they get doesn't count, and with an almost exclusively basic level one team now starting to go up against level 3's I will never get back in the competition.
I started a different Skaven Team in one of the general leagues (all this waiting around is torture on Skaven. Shot life span. Especially so with murderous dwarfs around!) and have won two out of three matches! (Only lost because my idiot sister, having completely forgotten my brthday, now wants me to look after her dog, phoned me up in the closing turns of the match. My own fault, should have guessed that she wanted something and not answered)
Still I can fire up Icewind dale, make a party of Dwarfs, take them out into the wilderness and have them murdered by Kobolds.
I fucking hate this game.
