    Hi everyone, wanted some advice, especially from @-V-

    I'm running the two Aristeia tournaments at Gencon and one of them has the "Semy" mod, where you build your opponents team. I also have Carnage as one of the missions.

    I have had people to mention that they were not going to put Murtair or 8 Ball in their starting line up due to their fear that their opponent would choose them.

    So my question: Would it be OK to "houserule" Carnage so that models with 3-5 wounds are worth 2 Victory Points and models with 6+ wounds are worth 3 Victory Points? Or should I just accept that models will not be taken in the starting 8 due to this?

    This is similar to me as "I won't put Maximus in my starting line up because Maximus is not good at Scorching Earth and Blitz". And it could be right. Well, that's the point, the chars are not good at all scenarios. It is intended to have included Carnage so you have to think in different ways: speed for Scorching Earth, Defense for KotH, Damage for Carnage... You'll have to bet for your strategy.

    Maybe the problem is not in Carnage but using 'Semy' mod. Maybe this is the real challenge.

    Anyway, if we have enough feed back from you players we're open to make any changes to make AGL evolve in the right way to be enjoyable for everybody. So let us know every time.

    Zewrath, anaris and Plebian like this.

    No, don't house rule. Its a compositional choice you are presenting to the players with this choice of mods and scenarios.

    8-Ball and Max provide the most VPs, but you aren't necessarily going to get them as often as you could going after 3-4 HP models.

    I'd MUCH rather go after 3-4 point models. They can be taken out in single activations as oppossed to Max, 8-Ball or Murtair needing 2 activations or more.

    Max would be a bad choice anyway, he doesn't have the damage output.
