Mage Wars Mondays - SPECIAL EDITION: Tox Vs Rick
« on: August 17, 2015, 08:18:37 AM »
We have a very special Mage Wars Mondays today. Scott (Tox) and Rick had a chance to play a game of Academy this weekend for your enjoyment. Who will come out victorious? Well you'll have to watch it >>HERE<< to find out.

Note: They did play the interaction of Exile correctly. However there were a couple of small issues. Melee bonuses only affect the first attack in an action, so Badger Frenzy would have rolled 3 and then 2 dice. Also, you cannot reduce someone to below 1 attack die, just like arena, so Rick could have still attacked had he wished.

  I played against Tox at that event. It was a lot of fun and I have to say I was extremely impressed with Acadamy. It really does seem like the perfect introduction for new players into the Mage Wars world.
  That being said I do have one question. When I played Tox he was pretty clear that the rules had changed to where +melee or similar applied to all hits not just the first one. He said it applied to Acadamy and Arena. This has left me a little confused. Can I get a definite answer one way or the other?

He was incorrect. I called and spoke to him about it. Melee bonus like that do not apply to both swings.

Hate them thematically or because of how they play? The academy wizard sounded quite a bit less frustrating to play against than its arena counterpart, imo.

He's a very different mage, he doesn't have that natural defense (shield) and offense (zap). What truly sets them apart are the cards available in academy. Teleport, wizards tower, Nullify and Dispel (in abundance) aren't an issue. Feels closer to how the wizard felt when he first came out in core set.
