    Competitive Masters

    I've been playing 10T pretty much exclusively in gg2016, though only in 1 big event so far. My previous events were all with ressurs but I've been anywhere from 1-5 in all those events so I consider myself a reasonably competent player if that adds any validity to my opinion. Based on my experiences and the way I play in gg2016, I would consider McCabe and Lynch to be the top Masters out of 10T. McCabe is very versatile, adds a lot to his crew and can be very punchy when he needs to be. He's not particularly resilient and is pretty high skill cap but if I was going to a single master event he would be my choice. Lynch gets a free henchman, has some really good synergy with his ace tricks(10Tbro and others) and like some of the other factions best masters has the ability to randomly delete a model occasionally. I personally have found the brilliance and recurring huggy to be a bit of a trap, games are only 5 turns and much like Bad Juju a good player can play around it. I would put Shenlong and Yan Lo in the next category. They are both solid and versatile but I think both are a little more restricted in the setups I would choose to play them in. Shenlong lacks the punch but has good support and scheme ability. Yan Lo I rate higher then most people but with him I want to play more of a brawling attrition game in the middle(I also rarely use lightning dance). Misaki and Mei Feng I put on the bottom. Other then the very situational vent steam(which is amazing) neither offers anything to the crew itself. These masters to me are for baby seal clubbing, very good against new people but don't do enough against top opponents...the min damage 2 really hurts them relative to other beater masters. This isn't to say you can't win with them because I have, but every game I play with them I always feel like I could do better with Mccabe/Lynch. Brewmaster I've only played twice I think and he might be ok, but I feel like he does much better in gremlins.

    Ten Thunders Model Roles

    In the process of putting together all my new TT stuff and trying to figure out when to use various choices in games. When I was playing ressers, I had a pretty good feel for the role of each model in the faction as I felt most stuff was fairly specialized and I could figure out what I wanted it to do. With TT I'm seeing a lot more stuff thats more versatile and therefore harder to decide on what the best model to use for each situation is. I'm curious as to what other TT players have found success with in terms of deciding crew builds for strat/scheme pools. Generally speaking(not knowing opposing faction/player), which master do you lean towards for each strategy, and which models do you lean towards for each of the various schemes outside of the themed models for each master, because I could see myself getting caught up in theme way too easily if I don't have a clear plan. For instance Samurai seem interesting, why would I choose them over say Izamu(other then saving 2 stones) When to take Mei Feng vs Jakob Lynch, Where would I take a Wastrel over say a Tengu, etc....
  13. I'm a fairly rare poster but for some reason felt the need to chime in on this. Perhaps its because I recently got married and am working on the whole kid thing so I'm going through a lot of sympathy emotions with my wife right now. In any case, I've grown up with 2 strong grandmothers, a very strong mother, several aunts and two strong sisters so I like to think I have a good perspective coming from some a female dominated family. However, I'll also be the first to admit I quite enjoy the sexual nature of females that I'm not related to(and of course only my wife ). So since I'm quite bored at work now I took a look at all the available m2e sculpts in the webstore. Counted about 276 unique models. Of those, anywhere from 1/2 - 2/3 are gender neutral(constructs/animals/etc.) Of the ~100 or so that are left I counted 55 females. Of those I would consider 22 non-sexualized, 16 of average sexuality, and 17 that would make me uncomfortable if I saw one of my sisters dressed like that. In my opinion that that last category was Nurses, Bells, Beckoners, Doppleganger, Nekima, Ronin, Vicktorias, Waifs. Even if you add some of the other upcoming models I would still consider that a pretty good spread that represents a wide variety of women in terms of look and dress and I think just as it would be ridiculous to have all the models be completely over the top, it would also be inappropriate to not represent that subset of the culture, particularly where its appropriate to the model itself. Now certainly I would admit that the size of the female models is definitely skewed towards the thin end of the spectrum and probably is an opportunity for some more diversity, but to be fair the scale of the game and the art style and the time period(in other words not modern day overweight america) I do believe would make that more difficult as many figures wouldn't quite look right...though not impossible and certainly something that could get some attention. Anyway, my two cents.
