The HIVE market has been going absolutely nuts the last couple of days and I've been kinda glued to the price charts. I've been meaning to do this post for some time now, as the battle I wanna share is quite an unique one and I haven't seen anyone else use this tactic.
This was a 34 mana battle with the Super Sneak rule. So all monsters with Melee attack has the sneak ability and can attack the last monster on the opposition team. Up until this point I was using Goblin Mech as a very strong tank to take down the opposition tanks and that's what I have seen most players do. I changed my strategy here a bit!
I also used Brownie specifically for increasing Nectar Queen's speed as I needed it to keep up with the opposition tank. I didn't use it at position 2 as I didn't want to expose it to the opposition tank very early in case Nectar Queen fell quickly as I still would need the speed of my other monsters. And of course I used Creeping Ooze too, Duh!
At the same time it would also serve as a protection to my positions 3 4 and 5 monsters which were solely used for tactical purposes in this battle. So I didn't wanna lose those 3 soldiers as they were not intended primarily to attack, instead to support the monsters that I wanted to do the attack!
But at the same time I also needed my last monster to be able to endure multiple attacks every round from the opposition because remember, this was a Super Sneak Rule battle and so all the opposition monsters would be attacking my last monster. If I had say fro example Stonesplitter Orc instead as the last monster, it could have been taken out very quickly exposing my strategic monsters and they'd ALL be taken out in just a single round. I couldn't afford to let that happen. As you can see from the battle, this ploy worked really well for me. Mech endured multiple sneak attacks as if it was just nothing and protected my strategic monsters, and at the same time very quickly demolished the opposition backline along with the help from Stonesplitter Orc so that by the time their Tank fell, there was literally none left in the back to come in! Needless to say I used this tactic a few more times and had success most of the time.
