Peoples of the State Empire I require your knowledge. Today, I played against a Varuna list running a HGL that I didn't see coming. I lost the roll and was going second. I was playing a meme list. It was just for some fun. Having that said I didn't have a chance. I fired 2 or 3 shots total the whole 2 turns. The Squalo just spec fired my list down in 2 turns. was not able to shoot back. My dice where not on my side. I managed to pass 2 or 3 dodges. One was a crit dodge on a 4 for my Husong. I also only passed 1 or 2 armor saves. Those where not the odds. The varuna list was 2 combat groups with 12 orders + a data tracker order on the Squalo. I didn't have any ARO's out because he also had a 5 man linked Kamau with good visibility. I was setup to protect the objective with short fire lanes to the objective. We where playing capture and protect. I felt like I could have taken anything that was thrown my way except a good spec-fire platform. This feels a bit rock paper scissors to me when it pertains to list building. Aside from spreading out your troops what are ways to deal with this mechanic? I can see a speculo killer working well enough to slow it down. I can see a deployable repeater with an midfield AHD to make a repeater net on half of the board slowing it down. Perhaps a really lucky ninja hidden deployment that the squalo happens to walk over. Thanks!
