fanguad Posted December 13, 2015 Share Posted December 13, 2015 Personally, I tend to shy away from the tournament games such as Warmachine/Hordes, Malifaux, etc because so many people are bringing their A list and steamroll casual players. I love the miniatures, love the rules, but the games aren't fun when you keep going against power players. Before I bought into Warmahordes, I went to check out the local scene. The guys I play with really want others to enjoy their hobby as well, and even though I lost a lot at first, there were very few cases where I felt like I got steamrolled (I did make sure that everyone I played against knew I was a newbie). There are some players that regularly do tournaments, and when playing me they'll bring their experimental lists or otherwise tone it down a bit. I'm sure its not like that everywhere, which is why I checked beforehand. So I guess the moral is, don't dismiss your local group out of hand. (although it's also possible that they are jerks who would beat up on a new player, in which case, yeah, stay away) 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
