First X-Force game. I Lost priority (shock), but got extracts and chose cubes. He didn’t seem to have anyone that could get it turn 1, so I figured Cable could get it. The other player, playing Web Warriors chose Cosmic vaults. We played at 17 Threat.
I took Cable, Domino, Deadpool, Zemo, Gwen. After picking my main 4, I only had 3 threat left so it was Gwen or Storm.
WW took Miles, Gwen, Black Panther, Daredevil and Valkyrie.
WW Setup quite centrally, I had Cable centre, Gwen to the right and could choose the others to go different ways.
1st activation Black Panther took the middle point, and that was it. I figured I could get attacks into him so lobbed a grenade on with Domino, meaning I couldn’t pick up a cube. Cable put 2 shots into a DEF 2 Panther, for 1 damage. Even with re-rolls and blanks, against 2 dice I expected to do a lot better. Not much else happened. Deadpool moved left. Gwen and Daredevil went to the right point, Miles and Gwen sat on his back point. We Tied 4-4, 2 points, 2 extracts to me, 3 extracts and 1 secure to them.
The vaults moved no-one, despite 5 rolls, and Black Panther ran away. Cable put 2 shots into Gwen – Miles had stealth and Gwen could lifesaver others, but no damage. Miles then moved and web kicked Cable for 6 hits, I rolled 1 hit with 5 dice. So he survived, but almost didn’t. DD failed to damage Domino, so at least she was doing her thing. WW did score the right secure so scored 5 points this turn for a 8-9 score.
Round 3, Valkyrie charged Cable, doing 1 damage despite spending a lot of power. In return Cabel managed 2 damaged, despite her being incinerated. That was about it. Panther and Cable both Medpacked. 12-14.
Round 4, Miles and PAnther ran away. Zemo charged Valkyrie needing 1 hit for the daze and getting her cube, no hits. Domino tried to take out Valkyrie and rolled 3 skulls, but only had one power. Lucky shot (6 dice) did no damage. Dardevil put 2 attacks into Deadpool for 2 damage. Deadpool does 1 back. No-one dazed. I score another 4, WW score 3 to end 16-17.
The Dice were just awful on my end, and not great for Web Warriors. But when you have re-rolls and you’re relying on consistent rolls and don’t get them it’s hard to win. The Extract choice was wrong, I should have gone for an even number, but I would have just lost on secures I think. Rough game, and didn’t tell me a lot about my team. The WW player played well and made good use of cover and lifesaver.
So I’m 2-2 for Season 5. 2 more games to go.
