Archers Called Back To Work For Chinese New Year

Introduction

Today, is the third day of Chinese New Year (for those that don't know there is 15 days for Chinese New Year. I find it funny how last week I was saying archers are enjoying Chinese New Year but now they are pretty much featured for this week. This post will be for the battle mage secrets. The theme featured this week is Close Range. For this ruleset, ranged unit can attack from the first spot. One of the biggest weaknesses of ranged units is that it can't attack at the front spot so many people avoid playing them but in this ruleset they can shine!

My Strategy & Tips for Close Range

Close Range is an interesting ruleset because it allows some range units to get used when they normally wouldn't. You actually can ignore playing ranged in this ruleset but there are cases where they do come in handy. For example, this ruleset pairs well with the back to basics ruleset which I will be sharing as my battle today.

Personally for me, I find the archers from the Earth Element nice to play with close range like Venari Seedsmith, Acid Shooter, Hunter Jarx, Uloth Dhampir. Then the best neutral archer Supply Runner. I also find Jacek Archers to be good in this ruleset as well. You can play Countess Sinash, Supply Runner and Lava Launcher. This can be pretty strong as well as normally the sinash or supply runner wouldn't be able to attack once they reach the first position.

In summary, it's situational but find what works for you in this ruleset. Do experiment a bit but I've shared the two elements of ranged units that have worked for me.

The Battle

The battle link can be found here. This battle was on my scholar account, Bltzr-Wizard-727. I had this battle in ranked today. It was a 30 mana battle with back to basics, weak magic and close range as the ruleset. The elements were limited to only fire, earth and death.

Discussing My Lineup

Summoner , Immortalis - I chose Immortalis as my summoner. The shatter is super strong with the weak armor. It's also strong against countering against magic which people tend to use in back to basics.


First Position, Hill Giant - Hill Giant was my frontline here. It just has good base health for low mana. It didn't really have much purpose besides tanking.


Second Position, Fungus Fiend - Fungus Fiend was a free fodder since it's a 0 mana unit.


Third Position, Vampiric Blossom - Vampiric Blossom was my first ranged unit with the highest health among the ranged units. It was to do DPS and take advantage of the close range ruleset.


Fourth Position, Supply Runner - This ranged unit was also taking advantage of the close range. It has great speed and I placed it after Vampiric because it had less health than it.


Fifth Position, Gem Meteor - This main purpose for this unit was to do damage. I had this unit after my Supply Runner because it had 1 extra damage. You want to maximize the damage so it would make sense for this to come after.


Sixth Position, Regal Peryton - This unit was my finisher in the last spot. I felt that with the speed and damage this would be the ideal unit to carry the game at the end.

Analysis of The Battle

This was a super close battle. It was a nail biting battle where it was kind of RNG since the opponent used Astral Entity for the dodge. The opponent had some crazy dodges but in the end I had the last laugh because my Regal Peryton dodged a game winning blow. Now you can see why I put Regal in the back because it had the best carry potential since it can dodge ranged units since I predicted opponent would use more range than magic due to weak magic and close range available.

Do I Like Close Range ruleset?

I'm fine with close range ruleset. Ranged units are probably the least loved units in the game so this ruleset shows them some love. I would say magic is the most love ruleset because it's braindead to play and then next would come with melee with opportunity and sneak. This is how I feel but I could be wrong.

You really love using Immortalis.

I can't decide if I want to buy CORNEALUS level 3, level up my Kron to level 3 or buy LORD OF DARKNESS level 3. LORD OF DARKNESS is more expensive but it has Stun...

It was interesting to learn this combination of cards on Pretoria battlefield.
The season ends in a few hours, have you reached your guild of choice?
I am targeting the Diamond League, but it will remain a complex mission.
