    Hi all,

    New here just picked up the game and love it! My name is Myk.

    I am currently building back up my Blog and will hopefully soon be starting to stream games/record and YouTube.

    I have streamed tabletop games previously such as GuildBall and Warmachine. Currently getting to grips with the game and getting some painting done. Then hopefully sharing some content.

    Welcome to the Infinity universe!

    There's a great community here, so if there's anything you want to know or need help with just ask.

    It'll be awesome to see some more content online, I have a blog where I've been writing a bit on Aristeia! recently and one of our locals runs twitch.tv/knlghth00d which goes up on YouTube for Tempest Hexadome.

    Where are you in the world?

    One of the thinks I like best about Aristeia! is that it plays just about as well right out of the box as it does with the expansions.

    Maybe not from a competitive perspective, but as a game, certainly.

    I'd say you can get pretty far (and indeed win) with just the Core box, given that the core characters tend to be the "purest" incarnations of their archetypes. No-one's a better Scorer than Gata (barring Bixie, situationally), no-one can 100 to 0 someone at range like Lunah (barring maybe Dart, if you build your entire comp especially to do so), and no-one is better at gatekeeping who gets to score or not than Hexxer (except maybe 8-ball, who is also Core).

    My only concerns with them are that most tournaments tend to run Zlavin, and so you could easily miss out on the more common/popular picks (like Gata, Musashi, and Parvati).

    It's funny, around here we don't see the attraction of Zlavin.

    But it sure does seem to be popular, especially in Europe.

    I think it's mostly to make pick order more relevant.
    Because, sure, you might get "the best" character for the given scenario as first pick, but if your lineups are too similar then the opponent can use their two picks to take characters who you might be desiring for their synergies with your first pick (assuming they can stand on their own without that character in the scenario).

    Plus, as you're aware you can be "locked out" of options and combos, it makes you consider not taking the most obvious or necessarily meta options, to increase your chances of getting those characters when you want.

    As anecdotal evidence, i'm going to two tournaments over the next two months, and i've only taken a single core character in one of those two lineups (and he's 8-Ball, because there's two ziggurat missions) and no core in the other.

    We like the Koorie Queen mod for that, and don't feel that the "locking out" mechanic is necessary.

    And synergies are, generally speaking, flexible enough in Aristeia! that there are multiple options anyway.
