When to pick SBrisket over VRage

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, on Sunday I have a tournament coming up, taking both VRage and SBrisket in my line up. With my players, I can do a beaty VRage team, a footballing SBrisket team and a mix of the two.

Question is - are there any match ups that you would definitely take SBrisket over VRage? Or vice versa?

sBrisket is a very hard sell under the current OPD. Her matchups against all captains range from basically even to disastrous, and when you aren't sure what captain your opponent is playing when you pick her, it can just go so horribly wrong.

Her job used to be to shore up the matchups that are bad for vRage, since she doesn't have any notably good matchups herself. The problem there is that vRage's worst matchup, Shark, is not as much of a problem with the new errata, and sBrisket's Corsair matchup is so bad that I don't ever want to make that risk.

The core of the problem as I see it is that Blackheart shores up match ups much better than either of the Union's specialists' captains since even if you lose list chicken you don't lose it nearly as bad.  Is there any particular reason you want to bring sBrisket over Blackheart?

For me Brisket loves teams made purely out of beaters and Coin

Because in a perfectly aligned world if Brisket wants to score BADLY and if the pitch is perfectly alligned she can, use her legendary to dodge to a guy within 6", so thats basically up to 8'' forward, now if the target has the ball and is within 6'' she can use her character trait for 2 to get to that person, her tackle is momentous and gives another 1'' dodge, now she can run up to 8'' and score for fun another 8''.

In total thats 31'' goal threat range with momentum generated on the way for the price of 5inf
If you have Guild Ball pitch set up, take one of the now unpopular (at least in my area) rulers we used for 40k and see how far 31'' goes from the goal post. You realise, that she doesn't really need a perfectly aligned board.

But I found that she really hates unpredictables and gluttons to take the ball from

Every single one. :D

I do love Brisk3t and every match I switched to Rage I lost. Have no Blackheart model and never proxied him yet. So I can't compare these two.

In some thread Bryce said something like "better play with a worse rooster you played 100 times, then the "best" one for the first time".

Compared to Rage I played Brisk3t a lot, so this may be the reason I like her more. The hardest think with Brisk3t is to know when to give no/low influence. Often she sits on 4 Ing and can only do a jog, while A&G desperately need Ing to kill someone.

Used SBrisket yesterday for the first time, with Strongbox (don't own Coin), Gutter, Harry, Mist and Minx. It went pretty well! Beat Morticians, SBrisket got Casket Timed but still managed to score 2 goals, the rest of the team beat up the spooks to get 2 takeouts.

She's very good, although struggles on ball retrieval a bit - the tackle on 2 with 5 TAC is not reliable vs a 4/1 model!

 

Had a lot of fun though :)
