    The main idea is to take minimum possible amount of specialists for button pushing/healing and 2 zulu-jammers who can also glue somebody(and it’s the safest of our lieutenants)

    Here are: fusilier-LGL for killing DesignatedTarget in TransmissionMatrix and maybe enemy DT in Annihilation, Saito for killing everything and AC2 in L&S and also yuans for helping Saito with smoking or just for getting on opponent’s nerves.

    Also common in the lists were 4 fusilies + 2 kamau (HMG and Sniper) in order to be able to reassemble the link after the sniper's death and go on the attack, zulu with shock marksman rifle(or spitfire, if enough SWC) as a spare "long-range weapon"and helots of course.

    Enomotarchos with Ajax and 2 myrmidons walked along the right flank using cautious movement past the sniper's visibility zone and entered a house near my deployment. (1)
    The second enomotarchos with Phoenix, Machaon and myrm-AHD came out on the left flank to shot my camo-helot. I decided to answer immediately, because I could hit everybody with fire template, but miscalculated with the distance and missed with -12BS mod. Then the link successfully threw only one of 2 smokes and decided to go through the remaining gap at random and dodge, but the second helot’s rocket burned almost everybody. (2)

    On my turn, I landed yuan yuan next to Ajax, entered the house and exchanged him for both myrmidons and 1 Ajax wound. (3) My link shot TRbot and the survived, but already burnt, Machaon. (4) Opened the door of the right house with zulu cobra (3). From the center link shot Ajax and hid behind the central house from Agema. (4)

    Opponent in LoL and almost no one left on the table. He tries to land a paratrooper in my deployment, but scatters over the edge of the table and stands next to the engineer (7). Agema kills fugazi and helot (6).
    Then I just finished off the remaining Aleph forces until the end of the second turn. (5)

    10-0

    Then all the games were against familiar Muscovites.

    Kirill won LT roll and decided to go first.

    [​IMG]

    First, proxy5 came closer to my HVT and made follow up classify. Came even closer and got jammed by Zulu in the center (1). Then for a long time link of dakinis tried to kill my sniper and eventually killed him after some losses and repairs(2). On the right flank, proxy4 killed fugazi and warcor with HRL (4).
    On my own turn, I reassembled the link with kamau-HMG, went to the right flank and killed proxy4, TRbot and couple of dakinis(3). Zulu-Spitfire on his flank shot dakini-sniper and HMG.

    On the second turn, my link was shot by a repaired dakini-HMG and proxy1-hacker came closer to the paramedic. I decided to dodge with paramedic and open the crockman to isolate her, but something went wrong and the crocman was successfully glued. (5)
    On my turn, the central Zulu isolated proxy1, shot a dakini with HMG, and stood in the center along with the helot, preventing deva from running to my paramedic. Zulu-Spitfire finished off the sophotect servant so that she had to go down from the roof.

    On the third turn, the suicidal race of remnants of the dakini link in the direction of my paramedic was unsuccessful, and the dakini-paramedic was glued, and deva was shot dead.
    After a little redistribution of orders between the groups, I made a coup de grace on the corpse of a servant, the central Zulu prevented my opponent from securing HVT, and the Zulu-Spitfire, running past the bots with flashpulses, glued the opponent's Lt. (6)

    I won LT roll and decided to go first.

    Yuans do nothing, both skatter. Sniper shot everything that could see (1). Crocman takes the box, lays a mine and covers behind the central container. Tech bee goes closer to the second box, but cannot get it. (2)
    Dimitry's turn. Krakot is killed by crocman, and the sniper successfully survived his chains. The dog is killed by the sniper. GaoRael-spitfire comes to the center, kills helot, fugazi, bee and closer to the end of the turn, he reaches the sniper and kills him (3). The triad on the left flank raises the dog, but finishes off the krakot.

    [​IMG]


    Warcor takes the box from the crocman and moves back a little. Croc picks up the second box and places the second mine. (4) Link tries to shot sukeul, but without success. Link stays on the roof of the house under cover of fusilier-FO and kamau-HMG (never underestimate the dog)

    [​IMG]


    The dog throws many smoke grenades, comes closer and exterminates the whole link with 2 successful speculatives of ordinary grenades. Then he finishes off the baggage bot and makes 2 classifies (Coup de grace and In extremis recovery) on it and the nearby lamp. (5)

    [​IMG]

    Third round. Saito kills sukeul and tries to kill the dog, but MacMurrough dodges and hides from him behind boxes. Saito stands in suppress in the center to control the left box and the dog. (6) Warcor and crocman run as far as they can. Zulu and helot stand on the bridge to cover them. (7)

    On the last turn, first makaul runs towards Saito, but throws smoke without ftf, and then the second one runs out after this smoke and smokes the box finally. The paramedic easily takes it.(8)
    Clipsos appears on the right flank, kills the helot, the zulu and the warcor. The score from 5-3 in my favor is suddenly became 1-3. Then Clipsos tanks mine and takes the box, and the final score is 1-7. (9)

    1-7

    Michael won LT roll and decided to go first.

    [​IMG]

    Firstly, he dropped 4 yuans in my deployment(only one scattered under sniper and died). 2 got stunned, but survived and blocked vision of my warcor and fugazi who guarded ArmoredConsole. Third one killed sniper with chain rifle, but died from helot(1). Then MacMurrough run towards my AC by the way getting 1 wound and killing zulu-smr. Then he smoked his path to AC and destroyed it.(2)

    [​IMG]
    I answered with dropping my own yuans behind the container. They disarmed a mine and smoked opponent’s AC.(3) Then Saito entered smoke and destroyed AC(4). Healed sniper killed almost everybody he could see including the dog, couple of yuans, peacemaker and bulleteer.(5) Crocman data scanned auxbot.(6)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now the most boring part has begun (compared to the first turn). After clearing path with bagh-mari-HMG, opponent’s fugazi(7) and scylla(8) looted and scylla hacked my HVT. In my turns tech-bee looted the right panoply(9) and lieutenant killed both devabots, tanked flamer and looted at the left panoply.

    Achilles-datatreker rushes in on the left flank and tries to kill the warcor, helot and kamau-sniper at once. Kills warcor, surprised by kamau’s 19BS (gets 2 stuns in the face) and crit from the helot, then fails 2 more armor saves from fire and falls unconscious. (1) Dasyu-sniper tries to get rid of the helot so that he does not burn Achilles along with the Sofotect’s servant, who was going to treat him. Helot dodges as hell and only after 3 orders dies. (2) Proxy2-sniper appears and tries to shoot kamau-sniper and fugazi at the same time. Fugazi and proxy2 die. The servant heals Achilles, but dies of kamau-sniper. (3)

    On my own turn I drop 2 yuans (both scatter under the sniper and die), move a little closer to the edge of the roof with a sniper and shoot at Achilles. He saves and hides behind the container. Further, Kamau discovers and kills the dasyu-hacker in the center and the dasyu-sniper. HMG goes to Achilles and finishes him, but with some problems. (4) Crocman appears on the roof of the hangar and scores the center point.

    [​IMG]

    On the second turn, naga-KHD passes on the right flank, kills the second helot and occupies a scoring zone in my deployment. At this, the orders ended. (5)
    Link does classify, datatracker-fusiler-LGL kills enemy HVT with combirifle, so as not to waste unnecessary orders because the flank is free and scores zone in opponent’s deployment. Zulu and tech bee on the right flank prevent naga from scoring the zone. (6)
    On the third turn, the naga kills my tech bee, and the proxy5 tries to pass WIP roll on my half of the table, but without success. At this point we decided to finish the game (and I cured the warcor before the end, because why not) (7)

    10-0

    ------------------

    As a result, I took 4th place.(same place as last year)
    ((you can read about it here: https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/report-from-rodina-awaits-official-infinity-satellite.2119/ ))
    Thank you all for games. It was nice to see a lot of new faces in the tournament.
    Thanks to the organizers for the event.
    [​IMG]

    And to @HellLois for personal attendance.
    [​IMG]


    Brief conclusions on the sectorial: much more interesting and diverse than NCA, there are different camouflage tools similar but different from SAoA. Helots - op. Kamau - op. Zulu - sometimes op.

    Fusiliers as always top1.

    Pano was and is a mistake.

    Thanks for attention.(I hope there are not a lot of terrible mistakes)

    --------------------
    Some statistics:
    Total number of players per faction:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The funny fact is that, despite some resentment from this expansion, only 36% of the players used Solders of Fortune.
    There were only 27% of the total number of army lists with SoF (there were 2 lists per participant and one participant with only 1 list)
    From the diagramm you can see that Haqqislam loves SoF least of all (with a relatively large number of players), and each player of Varuna and Caledonia has at least one of the lists with mercenaries. Also, in each faction with 3 or more players, at least one used SoF.

    Good battle reporting, good tournament! Thank you for sharing your games with us.

    • Soldier of Fortune is challenging for all players. McMurrough and Yuan Yuan have a very strong impact on all games, and it looks like you fought a lot of them. Your game vs McMurrough sounded very frustrating... Seeing an opponent throw endless smoke grenades to maneuver around the table is annoying. Varuna even has better tools than most armies, thanks to Kamau MSV2, and it's still very annoying to fight.
    • Were you happy with your choice to use Varuna? Were there any other armies/Sectorials that you were thinking of using instead?
    • Were you happy with your Army Lists? Was there anything you would have changed?
    • Were you happy with your Tactics? Would you have made any different maneuvers in your games?
    Congratulations on a strong result.

    Thank you!
    Yes, MacMurrough can win games by itself if uncontrolled, but if you can calculate all his possible routes and remember that he has not only smoke but simple grenades then you will be okay.
    Against yuans one of my opponents found interesting and simple solution: deploy lamp-bot(fugazi or similar) in btb with long side of deployment zone and it will protect almost everything.
    Kamau-MSR is great against almost everything. He could resist for a very long time and quite often even killed threats. Helots in camo are the best defence in game regarding it's value because they often steal 3+ opponent's orders(and sometimes can even kill couple of targets)
    Yes, I love this sectorial. I started Infinity with NCA and then played SAoA for a long time and wanted to test something new.(took 4th place at Rodina Awaits! satellite with NCA and 1st at Moscow "dacha" major tournament, which then was not yet a satellite)(I wrote reports about those games too).(sadly, don't have MO miniatures, but maybe someday...) Tried JSA at major tournament at november, but took only ~31 place(defeated only all 2 other JSA players, lol). It's difficult sectorial(especially after Pano).
    I think now about SAoA (didn't play after the update) to play the satellite in May.((or maybe Shasvastii))
    Read @daboarder and your reports. Very interesting, but I think that if you don’t need a datatracker, then Patsy is not needed so much. And I still don't like additional haris in this sectorial because defence is already pretty good. Think it's better to take single zulu or somebody else for different way of attacking.
    I am almost happy with current lists . Everybody did their jobs pretty well. Love Saito very much. But, sadly, I still didn't try to play with Mac. Maybe it would be better to take him.
    Still thinking about Zulu with smmr(maybe I should took jammer instead). But if there isn't enough SWC to take Spitfire, why not?
    In first 2 and last 2 games - no. In third game I had to guess what the dog could do with the link on the roof and place them much wider. And I had to hide warcor much further away from obvious clipsos using these saved orders from survived(I hope) link. My bad.

    Thanks for the replies. I also started PanOceania with NCA... Then Shock Army... Then VIRD... And I also play JSA, which I consider very challenging. So I understand your perspective very well. I think Shock Army is very powerful right now, and it's smart to consider them for future events. VIRD is getting a lot of attention for how strong it is (and yes, I think it's very strong) but I think Shock Army is much more powerful than most players think.

    Thanks for reading my battle report also. I actually don't use the Patsy Haris very often. But since that particular mission had 2 objective rooms, and 2 missions that involved camping the Datatracker on a console and staying alive, I thought Patsy was the smart list to bring. But I much prefer using Core link and lots of Camo, TO Camo, and AD units, similar to your lists. I think it's more flexible, and harder for the opponent to defend against. As you say though, if the Datatracker is important for a mission, the Haris is a strong tool.

    Did the Croc Assault Hacker help you much, as an actual Hacker?

    That's fun, but while playing pano I lost hope to use TRbot and any hackers except KHD sometimes. This croc could isolate targets at HP and TM, but it was very risky.(pano hackers are as smart as G:servants, you know)
    But you always want croc-specialist and suddenly AHD costs only +4 to FO(or +6 to basic version) instead of +6(+8) fusilier for example.

    Agreed. The +4 points for a Hacker is excellent. The Zulu Cobra Killer Hacker is very different from the other Zulu Cobra profiles... But the Croc Hacker is just a standard Croc that also lets you bring REMs for +4 points. I love that.
