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

I’m going first.

Deployment :

Elias Gade prey at Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders.

Vindictus cast Penitence on left Errants and Def Ward on right Errants.
My whole army just ran forward.

Asphyxious cast Mobility and Ashen Veil on right Inflictor.
Ghost Raiders ran to the forest.
Jacks ran forward, but outside of my charge ranges.

End of 1st round :

Vindictus cast True Path + FEAT.
Elias Gade and left Errants killed a lot of Ghost Raiders.
Right Errants killed Machine Wraith behind the forest.
They also did few dmg to Slayer.
Gravus changed sides – he ran to the right flank.

Inflictor and Slayer killed few Errants.
Wrong Eye cast Star-Crossed and Submerge.
Blackbane and company charged at left Errants and few of them just died due to Penitence.
They did not create more pirates, because of Errant’s Self-Sacrifice ability.

End of 2nd round :

On the left flank, I managed to kill all the pirates and Machine Wraiths.
Knights destroyed objective.
On the right flank, Knights mini feated and killed Snapjaw + Slayer.
Dervish ran to the left zone to score a scenario point.

2-0 on the scenario.

Wiktor did everything to clear the right zone – unfortunately without success.
I lost almost whole Knights unit and few Errants.
Agrimony ran to contest the left zone.
Cankerworm charged at Sanctifier, but he did not do much.

End of 3rd round :

Left Knights killed Agrimony.
Gravus and Sanctifier destroyed Cankerworm.
Knights Exemplar Officer killed Wrong Eye.

3-0 on the scenario.

To be honest, there is no point in playing this game any more.
Cryx has no chance to contest the left zone.
I will win this game in the next turn.

I won the game by submission or scenario.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • The start-up roll was very important.
    Fortunately, I was able to win that roll.
    The game has become a lot easier.
  • Star-Crossed and Ashen Veil.. it’s hard to play against it.
  • In my opinion, Wiktor’s list was missing Darragh Wrathe.
    Unyielding and Darragh’s -2str aura, it is great.
    My Knights would have a big problem with destroying Jacks.
