Battle Report #469: Sloan vs Krueger2

:: Prologue ::

Following the Sloan vs Morvahna2 matchup we decided to try Sloan vs Krueger2. I anticipated this to be pretty one-sided but it's worth confirming. My opponent plays a dude-spam variant of Krueger2 which certainly feels better than heavies so there might be something there.

:: Pre-Battle Thoughts & Deployment ::

Same map and scenario, I win the roll-off so Krueger2 goes first. The Wolves go ambushing so I am somewhat aware of them, however I have to deploy "around" the woods I feel.

:: Game ::

Stuff runs.

Another bot of 1 feat. I get greedy and careless with the Hunters on the right. Having killed the shrimps here I should just chill out and start wiping Reeves on the left, really. The Feral doesn't matter that much now.

I am punished for my mistakes by Wolves who kill 2 Hunters.

Stormwall contests and I start clearing pieces.

Feral kills objective and is TK'd back. Wolves jam. Reeves to run to contest.

I kill Feral with shooting. Chain Cannons dig into the infantry.

With so many infantry dudes down, virtually no boxes on the 'wall and the Feral out, my opponent calls the game.

Victory to the Swans!

:: Evaluation ::

Lots of poor play and weird choices. Sloan still felt comfortably up though so my conclusion is that Krueger2 is just bad here pretty much regardless of list, unless terrain is extremely favourable. That -could- of course happen. There's not a lot more to say about this particular game I think.
