I got to play a game last night! I want to get in a least one game a week during the Crossroads League so I get my participation coin. It feels a little like how everyone got a trophy in little league but I am going to take it! I played against Kenneth and he was a great opponent. He took time to go through his forces with me, which was great because I had never battled against a Cephalyx themed force and it was certainly different. Their use of focus is almost a blend of focus and fury. The Monstrosities Subduer and Wrecker (the two 'jack like beings) are huge meat mountains able to soak up a ton of damage. The Drudges are cheap and able to tie you up in melee. He played the caster Cognifex Cyphon.
We also played the league game Ol' Jeb in a Rumble Format. If I could kill Ol' Jeb, I would win and gain the achievement point. The Rumble format is played on a 30" x 30" table with a max of 35 its and felt like the equivalent of starting on turn 2. Unfortunately, this did not help me against a melee heavy opponent! I lost the match and Darius hung his head in defeat.
