QTR Defenders v Chazu Web Warriors
Quotemyname here! The struggle continues as I fight my way through the Season 4 Central Bracket!
My opponent this week was Chazu of Turn Zero fame! Chazu has long been one of the members of the MCP TTS community. He and I both go way back to the days when the movement tools wouldn’t even bend. It’s been a pleasure sharing this space with him and the rest of the Turn Zero team for so long. And it’s always a blast playing games with Chazu and hearing about his canine friends!

Some parting thoughts:
I know Chazu is a fan of Peter Parker. I expected to see him played. I did NOT expect to drop all of Hulk’s cubes in the first round! That really threw me off. Man, Venom blast is a lot better in this specific scenario than it is in other cases. I’ve never seen someone eject more than one extract with that attack. What other extract even lets you carry more than one token at a time? Hammers is the only other case where this might come up with the current crises released in the game (Not counting narrative scenarios). I personally feel that it is less relevant on hammers because they usually end up on either side of the board split pretty evenly. But I’m sure Hulk wouldn’t like being robbed of hammers either!
The point is that my opponent’s opening was a fantastic counter to my game plan. I only managed to recoup my losses with some really hot dice. I didn’t put the puzzle pieces together at the start of the game. Advanced R&D + Automatic Pistol power = easy No Matter the Cost / Web Line play. Won’t make that mistake again!
Threat 16 is a bit awkward for Pentathletes when you don’t have priority and you’ve discarded Wakandan Herb. Well, I can’t say I would have been able to score the herb against Web Warriors anyway so maybe that’s for the best.
As always I would like to thank my opponent for the game and the rest of the community for giving us a place to play and appreciate this great hobby! Thanks goes to AMG for creating a great game!
