#1: BOSS FIGHTS! Author: sthar9, Posted: Sat Sep 15, 2012 6:38 pm ---- On September 27th, Merlyns will be playing host to some of the biggest baddies in heroclix. These beastly collossals will be taking on all comers, provided they come as valid heroclix teams and in groups of three.
Try your hand with a 1000 point team against the mighty Thanos, wielder of the Infinity Gauntlet. Or if you can't work up the courage, perhaps you might prefer a duel with Galactus, Ziran, or Master Mold, where you can match 500 points up against these big baddies.
Instead of a traditional Win/Loss and Points based scoring system, each player will be awarded points for various achievements, such as killing one of these Mad Titans. One of the criteria for extra points is fielding the traditional enemies of our big baddies:
X-Men/ Brotherhood of Mutants vs. Master Mold
Scientist/Eternal vs. Ziran, The Tester
Herald/Fantastic Four vs. Galactus
Elders of the Universe/ Guardians of the Galaxy vs. Thanos
Furthermore, hitting hard and giving valuable support to your allies will both net you some points, so remember to keep some diversity in your build. Theme Teams will give an opportunity for more points, but aren't required.
Your opponents will have the same or slightly more to their build total than all three teammates combined, so this won't be a walk in the park. That said, this game is more for fun than competition, so feel free to bring that funny/awesome/thematic team you couldn't bring yourself to play for a more serious night. We will be playing Silver age, so any figure that doesn't happen to be a spaceship is legal.
As always, feel free to stop by the store with any questions. I'm planning on posting the Achievements to shoot for sometime in the next week, so keep checking back. Just to get some cogs turning, Perplex, Probability Control, and Ziran's Tests will all have a place in your points.
To all of you clixers who haven't made it into the store in the last few days, we do still have a few of the DC 10th Anniversary boosters for sale, but they've been selling like crazy, so don't delay if you want to pick some up!
