    Kami vs Nomad

    I'm also all in for Kami, IMO, Alchs are looking pretty good (except for legitimate reasons to take Midas over Smoke), and I'd love to run a full female in-guild 6, lol. Honestly, if I knew any of these rookies has the ability to gain Fire/Poison on themselves, I'd be all in for that rookie. Venin needs a break!

    So... Vitriol...

    On the Midas squad, Vitriol is one of my most productive players, averaging a goal per game along with Crucible. Typically she's either scoring or just reliably generating 3 or 4 MOM per activation along with that pesky clone, and some clutch re-positioning. On those rare occasions I win initiative, kicking is way better than receiving, so you can opt for her as one of the best turn 1 goal threat kickers in the game, or Crucible if you are faced with Close Control or UM (like opponent Naja, Obulus, or Greyscales).

    S4 Line ups

    I was a Midas fanboy in S3, and so I've been focusing on figuring him out in S4. He's uhh...yeah. If you are looking for a real advantage of why to take him over Smoke, go ahead and skip the rest of this post. There are like 2 corner cases and matchup or two where you might need his subpar Lure outside of the first turn, which appears to be the only reason to drop Midas in. The Midas teams which I've had success with are 3-0 teams, and like I've been hinting at, the team next needs to nothing from Midas himself to win. When doe does contribute, it has been towards a game that Crucible, Vitriol, Venin etc. has won, and Midas is just piling on trying to end the game quicker. My most successful lineups have been: Midas, Flask, Vitriol, Crucible, VCalc, and Venin - which is just pure scoring using Venin as the setup piece, and Midas, Flask, Vitriol, Crucible, OKat, and Venin - a team which threatens a 2-2 but is still honestly a 3-0 team.
  4. Esters overextends her voice and Midas makes her pay the price!
  5. Down 2 momentum and staring at 8-11, Honour makes a CLUTCH initiative roll and kicks in the final goal!

    New Player - Question...

    1. Came for the aesthetic, stayed for the gameplay. I love the idea that I can decide what to be good at in a game, and most importantly, when. And I can do that within guild, within the same 6 man roster if I choose to. 2. Gonna go against the grain here and say stone. No it's not realistic, but it's still kinda cool. I imagine my team are wearing some weird, lightweight quartz that only they know how to mine.
