Wow, a UCM list with nearly no killy outside of a group of Taipei's! Someone really wants those troops on the planet. How did the list do? Were the Lima's only there for the Toulon's? Seems like a waste/overkill

Haha, well, Matt won his second game, and actually got the bonus point for destroying more than 50% of his opponent's fleet in his third game (in a close losing effort).

I think if you look at the other lists (other than Tim's winning PHR list), you'll find most of them were right around the same "power level". My only means for putting boots on the ground were 4 Gargoyles, and I somehow managed to finish in second. Overall, the players and lists were surprisingly even (again, other than the winning player's list).

I think our local community has been pretty good so far about not succumbing to power creep. Once that begins to happen, I believe it tends to drive away players, and not many people want that. As long as everyone brings lists of around the same power level, all the games end up being fun and close. It's no fun to show up to play and realize the game was decided before the first dice were even rolled.

Every local meta is different, though. I'm pretty sure most of our local players (me included haha) will be getting our butts kicked at bigger events. :D

There's definitely something to be said for taking fun, fluffy, "Hey, I never get to use these units and I think they're cool" lists. But there's also nothing wrong with bringing a list designed to win to a competitive event, either.

We're having a combined Dropzone and Dropfleet Campaign Day tomorrow, and I fully expect to see some whacky stuff... But not so whacky as to completely toss out the possibility of winning, either. (It is a team event, and you don't want to let your teammate(s) down, but it's also intentionally a "fun", "non-competitive" event too -- aside from any game being a "competitive" event, by its very nature...)

But when we went to the LVO, we were loaded for bear. It was, after all, one of the few "major", Hawk-run events in the States, and we all wanted to win (my friends and I). ;)

Good, as long as we're clear on that! :lol:

Seriously, though, there's "Just want to get in a bunch of games" quality, "Wanting to win" good, "Power-gamer" good, and "Clubbing baby seals" dickhead levels. I can safely say that no one in our meta is a dickhead. :D
I love my job (well, I love having a job), but a bad day of gaming beats a good day of work every time!
