Great post overall, but I wanted to reply to this point specifically. VIRD definitely changes the meta in a big way. 6-7 months ago, Nimbus was not valued as a tool. Now, it helps players take down the Kamau MSV2. Players are more conscious of tools like Veteran, for beating Jammer. The lack of a centerpiece Heavy Infantry is really interesting with Varuna. Not many players discuss this, but Varuna requires a lot of finesse in order to get the most out of all those 1-Wound Snake Eaters. CB did a really nice job putting the focus on 1-Wound elite operators. Even ORCs don't feel like unstoppable super soldiers... They feel like a Special Forces guy who traded his ninja-suit for a set of power armor, because the mission requires it. I'll be curious to hear your thoughts if you start Varuna. In the meantime, I like seeing players who are smarter with MO than I am. I always enjoy tournament prep discussions with other players... @daboarder is a master at this. Don't be surprised if I hit you guys up for a Satellite I have in June.
