small tournament recap. Attended Prague GT last weekend, went 3-2. Overall super satisfied with the result - my goal was 1-4 maybe 2-3 . Had a great time there and met a lot of awesome people. Only downside, we were 4 people and 3 got sick - I am the only one left which still feels Ok - maybe nurgle did his thing but I fnp'ed?
I played shootcast with Castellant instead of 2nd Incantor. Was aiming for triumphs - which worked great.
G1 against KO - Battle for the pass: Was like, yeah he will shoot me of the board and I kinda threw the game in my mind already before it even started... - first time I encountered the psychological side of the game . He did in fact shoot me of the board, but my Raptors and Evocators in deepstrike made me win it 30-26 on points with 2 Evos left... Awesome game, full 3 hours / 5 rounds.
G2 against Tzeenth Tzangors on Disc - Duality of death: No Idea what I was facing, I alphastriked my Evos, made the charge on the reroll and took out his left flank. Raptors also came in shot a hero , but I misplaced them a little so his right flank kinda reached them faster than I would have liked. Won on points however but was super tight.
G3 against LoN - The one were you win when you get all T3 or kill-points if both have same: Stalemate the whole game , Won on VP 600-400 . He was an ex 40k player and I have never seen such great screening. Great game though. I need to train how to deal with that situation.
G4 against Nurgle - Focal points: This is where I messed up super hard. He left his left flank super wide open with only a few Plaguebearers for the objective, and instead of going in T1 to apply max pressure I kept my Evos too long in reserve and yeah, lost on points I also dealt 14 wound to the Glotkin in 1 go of shooting put didn't follow through . Loss That game clearly showed my lack of playing experience.
G5 against Khorne 3BT - The one were you roll a D6 in T2 to see where your objective is: Wanted a fast game, went all in T1, killed 2 BT. T2 teleport failed and then Raptors were gone. Loss. Also winnable but wanted to drive home with daylight 3 sick people and gf with kiddo waiting... 😆
Need to learn to place raptors better and pre think the next 5 or so actions with them. 2 is not enough, poor brain.
Show no fear and be open for some gambling. Most people sh*t themselves when they see 10 Evos crashing on the board.edit: and they definitely throw up a little if you make the charge 😄
Aetherwings are just pure love
Glottkin can be squishy
3+ rr1 Raptors can take some beating.
Incantor - mostly useless in my match-ups, although nice in the nurgle game. So still important.
MW still suck
So to sum it up, If you can reach Prague go there
