Cryx was lead by Wiktor Harężlak.
Best Poland Cryx player in 2016/2017 season.
My WTC teammate.

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Vindictus cast Penitence on the middle Zealots unit.
He also cast True Path.
Whole army ran as far as possible.

Cryx army also ran forward.
Deneghra cast Venom (through Nightwretch) at the middle Zealots unit.
She killed three models and she suffer dmg, due to Penitence.

End of 1st round :

Vanquishers ran to the middle zone.
Vindictus FEAT.
Zealots killed as many Pirates as they could.
Wraith Engine’s aura interfered with killing a lot…
Avatar ran + Menoth’s Gaze.

Deneghra came forward + FEAT.
Pirates killed whole unit of Zealots.
Rengrave ran to the right flag.
Machine Wraith (from BE), charged and possessed Vanquisher.
Vanquisher came and hit Monolith Bearer.
Fortunately, he survived the attack.
Blackbane and company took care of my right zone.

0-3 on the scenario.

End of 2nd round :

There is no chance to win this game by scenario.
There is no chance to contest Rengrave’s flag.
There is no way to get rid of ghosts on my right.
The situation looks hopeless, but I see a real chance for CK.
Let’s try!

Vassal’s Arcane Bolt killed Machine Wraith.
Vindictus cast True Path.
Choir said Battle.
Vanquishers shot in Deneghra direction.
2x AoE landed on her and setting her on fire.
Blasts also did a few dmg to Deneghra.
Two Monolith Bearers mini feated.
Holy Zealots said Fervor and came forward to meet Deneghra…
And they blasted her to death.

I won by CK.

End of the game :

What does my opponent have to say about the game?

“Hello , my name is Wiktor ‘’Melfist’’ Harężlak. I was looking for the oppurtunity to play with Mateusz for a long time , and so we meet in the league! We decided to see if the assumption that Vindictus is good into ghost fleet , is true. I played my classical GF list , pDenny with 4 nightwretches. I thought that maybe there is a way to deal with all these zealots. In order to not let Mateusz return his zealots I had to push with Denny to feat the monolith bearer in the back , sadly I killed one , and I missed another one with the Vanquisher that I took control of , with a machine wraith made by Wraith Engine. This has ruined my game plan a little bit, and has resolved in me getting killed with the unit returning … The matchup seems good on paper, penitence is annoying but manageable , there is a lot of things though that can go not as planned, this makes it a little bit tricky. It is really annoying if you cannot get the monolith bearer out , so you can kill a whole unit of zealots. I feel like I could focus more on trying to kill just the monolith bearer this game , and arrange my game plan more into just doing it, but at the same time I think that Mateusz could protect his monolith bearer just a little bit better, these are some factors effecting play a matchup the first time by both sides.I look forward to playing more with Mateusz’s Vindictus lists !”

A few words after game :

  • I set Avatar a bit wrong.
    He should stand in the middle of the table and always go towards the ghosts.
  • Lack of magical weapon was very noticeable.
    The only source of magical weapon was the Avatar.
  • 3x max Zealots works very well..
    But it takes too much time to roll to hit, deviation and possible dmg for every model.
  • Next Vindictus games I will play in Exe theme for sure.
  • It was a good game, Wiktor.
    I’m waiting for the next one!
