Flamethrower49's Strategy

New additions, and new intro!  This is where all of the disparate bits of strategy advice that myself and others have composed come to live. 

I intend to publish a guide on every hero.  We'll see if I'm up to the villains after that.  Let me know if you see any issues, or if you'd like me to add anything, or if you have any general thoughts.  If you have a bit of strategy you would like to see linked here, let me know, and I can add it.

These guides are a great idea and you have done some excellent work writing them up.  Looking forward to your futher instalments!  I am interested to see your take on Fanatic and one of my sons cannot get enough of Bunker so he will be reading with interest any hints he can on how to play him best :)

Great guides all around! You not only explain what makes each hero tick in clear language, but you really seem to understand what makes each hero fun to play.

I second the request for a Fanatic guide next. I tend to play her quite a lot, but likely haven't found all the uses and combos that her varied deck has to offer.

I added awp832's guides to my growing compendium.  People that want a Fanatic guide are probably much better off listening to him than to me - she is an Avatar of Death in his hands.  I'll still probably do a guide for her in my own way, so I can claim the complete set, but I still need to work on five more heroes in the meantime.  You can benefit from his information today!

And as long as I was reposting his guides without permission, (he'll probably be okay with it...) I thought I would point people to his excellent Matriarch guide.

hey flame, if you want to duplicate your guides on the wiki we're building, we can set up individual pages for each there? Don't know if you want to or not, might be more work than its worth :P

Hey i noticed a link in your bunker post to kickstarter - given that those links may not be around as long as this sticky thread might (and Is that possibly a Baker only post too?) If you would like why dont you link to the wiki instead?

Your guides have been great so far. Made me rethink some Heroes that were hard to understand at first.

Is it possible to update your other guides to include the other Promo heroes too. Like for your older guides - Tempest, Vissionary, Tachyon,etc ( since I notice you were using the Bunker and AZ promos I assume you also have tried the others).

Visionary has already been updated to include Dark Visionary.  I'm getting around to the others.  All in good time.  I have to update a bunch of nemesis information as well.

Edit: I'll see about linking to the Wiki.  If people are interested in strategy guides, they're probably interested in the Wiki too.  Kickstarters don't seem to vanish, and my others are linked to BoardGameGeek already - also a valuable resource for gamers.  I should probably pick one and go with it.

FlameThrower,

 

Your guides are excellent, but as a beginner in the interest of fairness, I need to wait until you post the guides to the missing heroes Mister Fixer, Argent Adept, Unity, and Fanatic (the hero that whose story I like the most (have yet to play the game, researched it, should be getting a set of all in about a week)).

 

From behind the curtiain...: Never mind that guy above, you do a teriffic job, and as a lurker on the boards for a bit, I can thank you for all of your contributions.

Slowly but surely, man.  Slowly but surely.  Though for Fanatic, awp's advice is the way to go.

The links to Wraith, Expatriette, Citizen Dawn, and Spite were kinda broken.  I blame nemesis tomfoolery.  Next up, updating more of the heroes for their new incarnations.

Flame great guides. Especially helpful at learning tricks and tips about Heroes I do not know before.

 

Seeing as there is constant talk about Mr. Fixer would it be possible for you to have that as your next one. I for one am still trying to figure out how to use his cards properly. Like only recently learning how he could be effective against Plague Rat's infection.

He's good against Apostate too, using Alternating Tiger Claw to rip through any soak on the relics (lol Runes of Malediction :D). And being able to one-shot some stuff with a Tyre Iron and a few damage buffs - good agsint Citizens and Voss's Minions :).

@Flamethrower49 I really enjoy your guides and have found them quite handy, both for my own use and for pointing fellow players towards when they tried a hero that didn't really "click" for them. For the fans at home, can you say what guide(s) you have in the pipeline? There's all the new Shattered Timeline content, and with the Mister Fixer debates, a guide on him has been hotly anticipated...

Well, I'm done with my graduate school application, so I can finally think about other things.  My drive to complete the series, if evolving strategy can ever truly be completed, is strong.  I do have a couple of guides in the works.  I don't like talking about what's next, though, as it kinda changes according to my whims.  There's only five heroes to do, though, so it'll be one of them!

Ah, by post away you mean... post it here? Or should I send it over to you via PM or something? My exams just finished, so I actually do have some time on my hands to get around writing.

Post it on the Gameplay forum, and I'll add it to this list.  (And probably change the name of the list...)

As much as I might like to, one simply can't have a monopoly on strategy advice.  The more the merrier, here!    smiley

Two Mr. Fixer guides are now linked, one by Drakossozh, and one by me.

I'm looking into changing the name of this post.  Does anybody know if changing the name would make the page impossible to find for the numerous people that have been linked to this topic on this site or others?

I think it would mess up the bookmarks people have created, since the link they would be trying no longer exists, but they'd be able to find it since it would still be stickied

Don't know. If you test it out, perhaps on a new/test topic, please let us know.

I could make a page on my site that links to Flamethrower's guides, if we think that would be helpful.  That way people could link to it and if the underlying links change, it wouldn't affect things.  Let me know if I should do that.
