Last night I played a 470pts combat patrol game at the GW. It was vs. Dark Angels and the guy took 5 sqauds of 5, 2 with plasma cannons and 1 with missile launcher.
Long story short I stayed in 4+ cover the entire hgame and only really lost any troops the turn after I did my charging. However all of his bolters RF on me made my big unit break and at turn 6 half my army was running away.
It look like a victory for him but after VP the huge chunk of my army he killed was not even worth the 12 marines I killed and Plasma Cannon (200pts) that overloaded . My 192pts unit of Flash Gitz and my Nob was safe and not fleeing so I lost way less point than him having 100ish more left than him after dividing the fleeing unit in half.
In a tactical sense He won but according to Da Rools I won. Very unsatisfying.
Ugh that sucks, "technically winning" is worse then losing... I'd get a rematch....
yeah but the important thing is that your ladz put up a good fight and took down some umies before leggin' it! that means that they will just come back with more ladz and stomp the SM's later!
i'd give my opponent a call after that game and call it a draw tbh. winning mainly due to his bad luck is never truly good fun, but remember, just because half of your army was fleeing/off can mean your winning with orks because they are cheaper than a space marine.
look at a skaven VS ogres battle in fantasy - the skaven player will take horrific casualties per ogre killed, but each ogre has to kill 7+ skaven to make its points back.
if in doubt remember they are coming back for anuvver go!
return of the mighty SNAKE MAN!
ive lost 2 out of five league games in my local 40k league solely on bad rolling. we have a bottle check rule after 50% casualties, made at -1 highest ldrshp value beginning of each turn. well i basicaly lost 100 points while my oppent had only60-40 points remaining; finaly had to make my first bottle check at ld 9 (10-1), and failed. couple days later same thing the guy even used his one army roster change, i still lost by failing a ld 9 check, wtf, 2 times!
the goddess of luck is a fickle mistress, and im gunna cut that wench
aye man! dont forget the rap music, there is nuffink like rap when u is cuttin a fizzool
yes bad rolling, unfourntaly the game is highly based on probabilty. Tatics sure as hell are important though
