Yeah, I know. There are a bunch of Medusa V threads going around... asking for battle reports and army lists.
Let me start by saying, I don't really give a crap about people's lists and detailed reports on battles. I mean without good diagrams and a decent writing style Battle Reports are quite tedious to read.
So what's the point of this thread?
I just want to have a place where people can discuss their general feelings toward to campaign, the results, the story line, or even just post a brief description of something really cool that happened in one of their games (I don't mean full on reports! just a quick description).
I will get things rolling by just saying how suprised I am by some of the Battle's Played figures...
It was obvious Marines were the uber popular and with 5,904 battles fought so far they are so far in advance of everyone else.
I really didn't realise that IG were nearly as popular as they are. I always figured they are one of the third tier armies. But with almost as many games as Chaos they really are alot more popular than I thought.
Meanwhile, Tau and Tyranids aren't nearly as popular as I thought... They are about half as popular as IG and Chaos... I guess with all the hype about them I figured they would be more poular worldwide.
They really are only marginally more popular than Eldar, Necrons and Orks...
And languishing at the bottom are my beloved Dark Eldar. almost 50% fewer games than the next least popular...
I just hope that some good results here will see us get some more attention and raise our popularity a bit.
I also want to say how horrified I am that some people seem to have reported 30 battles already. I mean, does that seem dodgey to anyone else?
Especially as there are 0 losses involved...
It's also a little strange that despite all their time playing games, they can't even give a little back story in their battle report section.
After all, isn't that the real point of this campaign?
I haevn't seen a single battle report in any of the battles played by these top ranked players.
I may be ranked 821 after my meagre 4 battles, but at least I've done some cool battle reports.
Finally, does anyone have any suggestions on what's going to happen after the first week? We get an update based on what's been going on in the battles so far. Right now it looks like one of the 2 Eldar factions will pull the top spot, as we've been tied for the last few days.
Perhaps some light will be shed on this mysterious cloaked stranger...
Meanwhile the Orks have been languising at the bottom ever since the campaign began. A sign they need a new dex pretty desperately perhaps?
But it doesn't look too good for their escape at this stage.
Overall things are looking good for the Defenders though... first week they should hold against all the serious rivals (the Eldar and Dark Eldar don't have such catastrophic plans, so they won't be too much of a bother to the Imperials)
So, comments, beliefs, opinions, general discussion and other Medusa V related talk please put here.
(Remember this is not an army list discussion location...)
