    Is there any report / statistics or so about Aristos used / team setups etc.? Especially for the final games this would be quite interesting :slightly_smiling_face:

    @jakata was taking notes the whole time. I'd suggest asking him!

    He he.

    Unluckily my notes were all about my games, so I can't tell anything "global".

    But what can I tell is that people was very afraid about human fate aristos. Only Dart and Prysm were played, as long as I know.

    Also most times they were banned or not played at all.

    I know that for both tournaments Lacy (the champion) was using the starting 8 with Valkyries for 8 ball in the first and massacre for lunah in the second iirc

    @jakata makes a very interesting point. I would assume that players with the confidence to enter a tournament with international representation would like to think that they have many variables understood or under control. However introducing a new expansion hours before would be stressful. I think that Aristeia! is fun because there are so many possibilities that no human being can account for them all. Hence the challenge of developing a different market than would play chess or even Infinity itself.

    This is not totally true. I played against her on the 1st tournament, and she played with Luna, Valkyrie, Massacre and Parvati.

    @jakata Did you record what scenario you played against Lacy? What four Aristo team did you choose? I am sorry to bother you but those of us who love this game would love any information about how it has been played at a high level.

    @jakata Thank you. Your first game must have been especially interesting since you won with 6VP but had only 1 frag to your opponents 8.
    I have often wanted to put Laxmee and Gata together. It may be that the addition of Prysm to draw fire and Maximus to absorb damage allow this team to work.

    You have to remember that with the semy mod, it is the opponent who chose your team composition.

    @jakata Please forgive my lack of familiarity with the tournament mods. Thank you for pointing this out. By the way, congratulations on winning your game with champion, Lacy. I see that you scored a Total Victory of 8 to 2. Were you then the second place finisher? I assume that you will play in Interplanetario. Good Luck!

    @Roadrunner Yes I finished 2nd on the 1st tournament.
    Lacy won because she scored 2 major victory.
    Everyone scored 2 victories, but only she got 2 majors.

    On 2nd tournament happened exactly the same. She won with 2 major victories.
    In this tournament I finished 4th, my style of play, that focus on scoring instead of fragging, was a big handicap, I presume.
