u Butch

Released on Friday 24/09/10

Butch always knew he wasn't cut out to be a great soldier. He doesn’t like getting up early or obeying orders, and more importantly, he’s chicken. Very, very chicken! Unfortunately for him, the army is obligatory and Dagg isn’t open to discussion on this matter.

Lovhak's War Journal

Entry 1#

September 28, 2010

Focus: Butch

Butch, a young, frightened, and clumsy recruit once again showed how incompetent he is, when he and I were delivering some weapon supplies to the western side of Clint City, when he dropped something, went to pick it up, dropped another, tripped on that, and fell off a building ledge (Yes, he is just that incompetent. Why did Dregn stick him with me...)
To make things stranger, One of the Vortex portals that Galen forgot to switch off when he left with Dregn to the past was just below. I tried to save Butch, but the extra weight of the ammunition and weapons dropped us both. Now, we both arrived in the past.
Butch isn't all that bad (really), sure, he has his mistakes. But he volunteered to fight for Dregn over the clans for his immense family pride. That's something, even if he is a wuss. With some training (arrving with him unninvited, Dregn has unleashed his wrath upon me by forcing me to work with Butch still instead of heading back to the future), I have helped Butch become more accurate, more brave, and less clumsy. Sure, he still is frightened by that small demon baby, but he sure has improved.
Butch will soon enough become an elite Vortex warrior if he can survive the past. It is much worse here than in the future, so he has some first hand experience of some of the worst fighting he will ever have to face.

Butch - 6/3 with Courage: +2 power (Ability) and Defeat: Recover 2 pills out of 3 (bonus)

- Potential 8 power which is lovely for a Vortex card.
- 3 damage is above average for a 2*, which is a good thing
- Only 2*, lots of room for your bigger stuff
- Defeat ensures that if Butch is going on the attack and fails, he gets a safe little bag of pills back.

- SoA cuts him back to a moderate power of 6.
- His ability is couraged based, so your opponent is generally know when to play with SoA.
- Like the other Vortex cards, the Vortex bonus doesn't aid him in victory in anyway. So if Butch needs some support against some 8 powered fiend with some manipulation, he ain't getting it from his bonus.
- His bonus is also useless if he wins. Not that big a deal though.

Overall: 7/10. Eh, Butch isn't that bad a card in any sense. 8 power is very impressive, even if couraged based. However, which utch an fight against massively strong beasts, your opponent doesn't ave to use their massive 5* against Butch and wait til later, just letting Butch deal in the damage. also, Butch is decent, but I would rather use C Wing, Noloe, an Cyb Lhia over him first..and there isn't much room for 4 2*.

The journal date is supposed to be the 24th, the day of the release. Otherwise, this may be confusing. Rate up for those who enjoy reading my reviews, so they don't get confused.

I think that when he is played first, he goes into a frightened frenzy, and if he wins, he's just :shock:. Rate Green if you agree

Butch: after meeting the fellow i can honestly say he is a scared soldier sent into a war of gigantic proportions.

he said this to me "a scared soldier sent into the biggest war in clint city history is like putting Acid DC against Kolos i may not be a ferce warrior but what people dont know is that im a quick study on the clint city clans." my inestial reaction was simple it Butch is a guy without a cause to fight, who can't see sence in this endless war and has been pushed by Dagg to be a couragous fighter with a almost spilt personality and has far as i can see he is the strangest person i have ever encountered so far...

hope you enjoyed it :thumbsup:

lol. who gave him the courage?

Everyone complains about the Vortex names and how weird they are, but think of this.They are in the future on some unknown continent in the future. That means that name styles will have changed and will probably resemble the language they speak. So truthfully, wouldn't Butch be a weird name then?

There's something wrong with this card. I used it at the first round and suddenly the Courgae was disabled and the enemy did NOT had SoA or SoB however I used Butch after winning with Lehrg however I think ?Butch's ability should be Confidence instead of Courage because it may say courage in the card but it doesn't work even without SoA!!! So I'm starting tothink I have bought a defective card. Confidence fits Butch the most

Rate Green If You Agree!!! :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

We get all of these fancy "futuristic" names for the Vortex then just get Butch. I didn't realize Butch was such a high-tech name XD
