In your opinion, which faction has the highest turnover and why?

    Was curious, which faction do people think has the highest turnover of players coming in and quickly going out due to either lack of interest or boredom? Obviously this changes with certain events (A bunch of Yu Jing or JSA sales after the uprising, seems like right now I'm seeing lots of Ariadna for sale after TAK's release, yet I'm not seeing as much ALEPH. People trying to capitalize on the hype of new releases to offload old purchases? Disappointment in sectorial releases? Whatcha think?

    Tohaa would be my guess. Just because of the current stagnation and limited list builds

    Wouldn't say it's Tohaa, cause very few player are starting them.

    My Opinion.would be MO, cause there style seems to be very attractive outside of Europe. But the playstyle is very limited and fancy Pain Train list can easily be countered.

    Agree with MO, but only from my limited group. Two of my buddies started with MO, and quickly ducked out for other Sectorials.

    I'll also agree with MO. People switching from 40k see the HI space knights and expect space marines, try to charge across open fields and get gunned down. You keep telling them the correct way to do it, but it's either too much work for them or they don't want to play that way. Either switch to an "easier" sectorial or drop Infinity all together.

    I definitely knew a guy who equated Morats to 40k Orks, insisted they should play like that, tried playing like that and kept getting his ass kicked, then quit the game because Infinity is bad because 40k Ork tactics don't work in it.

    I've seen a lot of turnover/lack of interest from YJ players, with a few of them having bought into the faction right when uprising happened and losing a good portion of their models.

    Other than that it seems kinda random.

    Isn't that an oxymoron?

    buying a bigger and better army with bigger and better guns is a valid historical tactic. It worked for conquering the American west.

    I'd hazard Nomads as a contender. Lots of people buy in on the plucky space rebels thing, but the play style can be pretty complex.

    That sounds like strategy rather than tactics to me! (Sorry, I love splitting hairs sometimes)

    Rolling codices sure is a darn shame though.

    I don't think MO is the same beast it used to be, so whilst that may have been an appropriate guess before - I don't think it is now.

    If we're talking highest turnover as in dropout rate once picked up - Shasvastii. They are cool, have lots of funky stuff... But they're super glass cannon. And aside from Noctifer Missiles and Speculos - Ariadna does all the same stuff better and cheaper. But, there are not many people (these days) who bother picking them up to start with...

    @paraelix I've been playing infinity for two years, usually go to tournaments in other cities, even satellites sometimes, and I think I've never played against Shasvastii.

    I share this opinion. Nomads are versatile but PanO shoots better, Aleph and Tohaa have failsafes with NWI, Symbios etc., other factions have more camo and so on... and your Nomads stuff is expensive and most often has 1W. They don't forgive many mistakes. People struggle with this playstyle most often.

    But I agree with MO as well. @eciu will approve this. ;)

    Probably MO, because people get it as a faction rather than PanO. Like you'll hear a new player say they play Knights, and you might say "hey you should get Varuna/NCA/whatever" and they're all "nahhh I just like the Knights" and then they get bored because, well it's actually just a Sectoral.

    With shitload of limitations and rather difficult gameplay.

    Another problem is "MO's CC promise" which is not delivered at all (lot of people thinks Knights are good in CC, while in case of MO it's "very, very complicated").

    I suggest trying to do new "MO list".

    Then try to do list in NCA/ASA/VIRD, it's like completely different game.

    Also: the MO tactics thread has quite a lot of views, and I don't think I'm on the level of @barakiel and @daboarder so it would rather mean that there is a lot of people interested/curious about MO.

    And actually meeting MO player is not that easy (so far I've played only once against other MO, game was short and rather poor as I could easily finish almost tabling him on my first turn ;/ )
