Crazy reverse mirror match ST(yetis) v. FW(ZOMGBIES)

So you all know what a big FW player I am, and how ZOMGBIES are my favorite thing to run.... so imagine my surprise when I get matched up against it, especially since I haven't seen a FF FW in awhile.

I played yetis as a nice break, a quick lame match, and this good long one vs zombies

They are great 1 v 1 with normal champs - they had nothing to do against the SL/UD match I played 1st --- lame 7 min match, he mimic'd my yeti beserker with a DS and it was lol-gg with no spells and nothing that could kill it as it was ice eater and berserker at that point....  they also suck against ravenwraiths....

so onto the better match:

 FYI  - it is hard to control a map full of furbulls & yetis... I left a lot of ap on the map(almost cost me the game).

And i also learned that Carrion Colossus swarm zombies if you have 5 or more zombies out, not Carrionlings  - maybe its time to add one of them to the ZOMGBIES BG....

Although I did accomplish what I wanted with this yeti bg - I'm ready to go back to a  real bg with zombies and counters.....

The lame 1st game... it did start out nice with a 1st draw of totoro - extra funny since we watched the movie totoro earlier today... maybe that was why I had yetis on the brain... also cp'ing the yetis used up the rest of my gold tokens. :-(

Started out good with contesting his font early

right before he equipped an SOD... SODs can be a pain

THis yeti berserker is actually NOT totoro, its the other one

Not actually trying to win just fill up the map with traps and furbulls, or something.... This also makes me want to go back to the 1 champ bg with undead magnus....  I kept running out of time with the champs on the board and forgot to deploy, thats how i piled up so much nora... realized i prolly couldn't kill the raven near my shrine in one round(almost no magic dmg) and just kept blocking it... on the next to last turn it broke thru since i ran out of time and didn't get it blocked --- took my shrine from nearly full to 28 in one turn..... so I had to kill his shrine fast, but it was getting clogged with ZOMGBIES on his end.....

JUst before the transfigure, where will he run too?

Wow - majestic works on avas!  did not know that either....

Oh boy 12 points for the hated protectorate faction... gotta be careful I don't pass my fw points...  j/k at least it wasn't kf... they are the real blight of the poxland


Finally an epic matchup FW/IS vs. UD

The day before was bad 1-7... looks like power creep has made it even harder to run fun or theme bgs... Zombies + yetis and zombies both played badly.... seems like i faced in everything but the 1 win 2x new legendaries (FS and UD)

UD is the new FW, as most of the matches lately have been against them, with FS 2nd,.... as opposed to 2 weeks ago, when it was all FW and IS.....

I faced 1 FW/UD split, but they still were running demonologist and stiched firsts, so hardly FW themed .

 So on to the good match --- 1st of all a thank you to my opponent for surrendering when it was clear I was winnning... we were about 9 minutes away from a downtime for a patch and he could have just delayed and cost us both the match(its as if games cancelled by a reset never existed, and no gold).   The game had a lot of good back and forth and could have gone either way.... mainly because UD is the current OP faction of the moment, and even with a bg I had created specifically to beat what he had, UD can throw out so much dmg, it still took a long time to push thru.

Also - I got a new monitor, so I upped the resolution on the game and so the screen caps are even larger now.

Started out good with contesting his font and killing somthin', but he used retribution to take me out, or it could have been a quite win, cause undead magnus was already getting pumped up.

Quick, use all the "DOOMs" before the bigguns get DP'd.  VRs are no fun to fight, much better to make them not exist, via doom or something else.... 

Looks bad, but several of my champs are immune phys dmg.... he finally ended up dooming them right back

if you can keep the Dwarven MC alive, it is a force to be reconned with... it was fun watching his units scattering every turn since he didn't know where the aritllery shell was coming down.

The high warlock stands alone.... why oh why didn they have to give him 2 fire attacks, if only his base attack was magic.....  he can't kill the stupid fire ruby which almost all UD players run.   Also finally killed his Mark of Sheoul which gives his champs 5 hp.... this is a real problem when you have about 10 champs with 4 hp.... think it was the most champs I ever killed in a round.

At this point the Stitched librarian has about 60 charges and is severely depleting his nora each turn with nora hex....and I have 2 miners and 2 mines out = a huge nora advantage... There were a few rounds I had as much as 400 nora and nothing to spend it on.... 

Game went over 1:30 and would have run longer if not for the looming outage

All 8 avatars = level 50

Mainly leveled up thru switching bg for the dailies each time one reached level 50, as I almost always use FW ava for ranked and it has been 50 for awhile.....
