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
