This past Friday night I partook in a 4 way free for all cleanse.
I used my Space Wolves, I was up against a cruddy slaneesh army, a not very mobile tau army, and my friend who plays DA.
Soon after the game began the chaos army was ripped to nothing, some kroot killed about 4 noise marines while I finished off the kroot and the chaos with my blood claws and Rune Priest. My scouts failed horribly and died the turn after they obel'd. The Hammerhead didn't move as much as it should have, it ended up being immobilized by a vengeance missile from the DA.
My friend didn't move until about turn 4 or 5. He just sat there and shot away with his whirlwind. He moved his small squad in to kill the tau commander, but they died. That was about it.
After the game was over I had about 10-15 points more than the DA. Not to mention what I had destroyed. My friend said that he'll call it a win for himself 'cause he took almost no casualties. I contested his decision because I had the most victory points. Had the game gone on longer, I guess I would have won, once I was in combat (Frosty axe and total of 3 power fists).
Please tell me this is not how most DA players play. It's really sad and boring. I guess the only good thing other than me winning was the fact that there was a 3:1 bet on the chaos kid. If he lost; he'd be less annoying! Trust me he is, even ask pathofskulls about Jordan...
No no, I had that much of my army remaining, however I killed/destroyed far more than he did. Of do I have my VP scoring messed up?
This thread was mainly regarding his tactics...
its cleanse isn't it?
isn't that the mission where whoever dominates the majority of the table wins?

Mission is everything.
If your playing victory points, then you win only if you score over 10% more your opponents.
If your playing alpha level missions, then all that matters is who as the most table quarters.
Should decide or roll which way your playing before the mission begins, then there is no debate.
sadly this is how all DA players work(at least the ones i've played with)
like the guy had 2 squads with a lascannon, and they sucked! a dreadnought, a chappy with jumppack and CCW (WTF? not a bolt pistol?) a whirlwind and some termies
his whole strategy revolved around lassing and whirl winding, and deepstriking his termies which are like his ONLY CC unit alongside his chappy (which layout sucked!) and the dread (which instead of flaming the foe he just stould there)
like switch to BA and get some CC in you army!
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
Maybe they were playing old rules.

I've seen some DA players using the new codex, and none of them sit the entire army back and have them do next to nothing. (There are DA players who play deathwing, all terminator army, or ravenwing, all bike/speeder army.) How could all DA players play the same when there are three major variants to the army?

Well we didn't state the mission, we usually don't in the casual games. However I was contesting 2 table quarters, so I guess I would have won.
