LINK TO #5 VS. #6


#3

“Aw, c’mon, I know Gorgotha’s awesome and all but that team can’t be THAT good against me, can it? I survived one offensive team, I can survive another. I’ve tried this team; it IS viable! It may be slower but you CAN win with this. Vote Endurance Test, everypony. We can take down Gorgortha and her Doomstones.”


#4

Gorgotha is the main thing making sure that team will win. The only direct damage the Enudrance Test has is the skulls exploded from Headmaster and the weak cast from a summoned Goblin.


An in-game tie into the forum Fantasy Series
#5

Plus the Watcher’s ability to inflict true damage and otherwise ignore both Templar and Alastair. Splash damage and Terraxis kill off the occasional barrier. All the while Gorgotha keeps charging everyone and Soothsayer strengthens all as well.


#6

“But if yu can make good use of the skull damage from Herdmaster while he’s top, because the Leader trait adds 3 to everything including attack, and kill Gorgotha and Terraxis, then the Watcher is literally all they have to stand on. Soothsayer can’t have THAT high attack. Plus, that goblin’s spell gives an extra turn when cast; Death of a Thousand Cuts is a trope for a reason.”


#7

These are key matchups everyone, don’t forget to cast your votes!


#8

75% resistance. You’d have to hit him 4x just to duplicate hitting anyone else once and he can take more than 1 full strength shot. So you’ll need many many skull hits just to get rid of him.

Meanwhile my whole team has a bonus to attack as well for our own skull shots but that’s just icing on the cake since skulls aren’t their main focus. They all have strong magic spells. Soothsayer makes everyone stronger. Everyone make Watcher stronger. Won’t take long for Watcher to 1-2 shot anyone. Your main defensive tactic is completely ignored here.

With no real direct offense except for the occasional weak goblin, there’s nothing to stop the rest of my team from doing whatever they want to do.


#9

"Herdmaster is also the mana generator of my team. True, he takes full damage, but I’m good about clearing that skull crap out ASAP. Plus, explosion damage doesn’t count for your blocking. :stuck_out_tongue: "


#10

And your generated mana goes for what? Plus your limited to whatever yellow may still be around. Gorgotha’s nuking is still magic based so he’ll be exploding more and more each time Soothsayer goes off, who starts off full so we’re plus-ing on our first turn.

P.S. Soothsayer destroys 15 gems as well so I have a solid backup mana generator as well.

Karasu no kokoro


#11

And the enemy of their enemy is no longer their friend…don’t forget to vote in both matches (link provided above.)


#12

"Soooooo… “I’m bucked, aren’t I?”


#13

Endurance Test now the chance to prove it’s name, can they outlast the onslaught and storm back to victory?


#14

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind every that we have 3 spots open for the 2nd Series, starting May 1st. Go ahead and apply!



#15

Bump since round one is now more fresh then two but not the same post because anti spam gets :rage:


#16

I like your team and lets face it, yours has the ability to outlast and kill his team if the summoned swarm had poison on attack. Plus poison so good now.


#17

O_O “92%-8%… Yeah, I’m out.” Power trots away slowly, going to a corner to cry.


#18
