My faction moved to a new region to get away from 8vs8 in wave 1A. In the new region, very few drop defence. No worries, that’s just the way it is in that region.
But now having run 12 walker hordes and finding only a single dropped defence, I am under the impression that this is endemic through all regions now. Granted, 12 is a small sample size, but it used to be 9 or 10 out of 12 dropped for a hordes event.
As we can all see, Hordes against S class is crazy since Scopely are one of the poorest companies at being able to balance gameplay that has ever existed (and I include 40k 7th ed in that when I say it). So if it is so difficult for all of us, why oh why, has almost everybody decided to put up top defences?
Yes the idea of the game is to be competitive, but when it is almost impossible to beat a 3 or 4 toon Sclass defence (I managed once, just, but that was 2 Sclass not 3 or more), then surely it benefits us all to drop those defences?
Come on guys.
