Baldovino or Grudj?
Threeace1 - Master English - Wednesday 05/12/2012, 17:22

Which character do you think is better? Baldovino or Grudj? Baldovino has 8 power, 6 damage, an ability of minus 2 of the opponent's pillz, minimum 3 and is 5 stars. Grudj has 8 power, 4 damage, an ability of plus 2 pillz and is 4 stars. However, Grudj has a mission. Both characters are from the same clan, the Freaks, with a bonus of poison 2 minimum 3. They've the same power, same bonus, and similar abilities, but one has a mission, lower damage and is less stars, the other has more stars, higher damage no missions. So, again, which is better?

"if you 7 pill Boldavino against a 7 pilled Tsuabme you will have 5 pills while your opponent has 3" Someone needs to look up tsubame's ability again. Grudj is better in most cases; however, is harder to 2ko with his clan. So imo Grudj>Baldovino in type 1/elo Baldovino>Grudj in type 2. In DT id go with Grudj for the faster placement you will get using lower star card since DT is full of 5star deck noobers.

Also Baldovino has a min. of 3 so is less useful last two rounds will Grudj is not limited to this.

Elo... if the pick is between the two, then Grudj by a long shot

As the famous mexican child once said "Why not have both?"

Grudj>Baldovino in everything, unless you're one of those crazies that use Freaks in T2

@Mr Intelijent:
Cuz having both is like buying two couches for your living room...one of them invariably becomes redundant, takes up valuable space, and drunk/broke friends see it as an open invitation to crash at your place

Baldovino's minimum actually does hinder him occasionally.

But the main problem is that 5* isn't optimal for a poisoner, and there is little justification for running a 5* Freak.

Freaks should be used in a 1/2 or a diminished 1/2 (3 characters). The Freak bonus will never make an actual difference in game mechanics more than once. Think of it this way: the first Freak in your draw has no bonus. The second Freak in your draw is the only one that has a bonus. If you get a draw with 1 Freak, you will have 1 character with no bonus. If you get a draw with 2 Freaks, which is the ideal, you still have 1 character with no bonus. And if you draw 3 Freaks, then you get 2 characters with no bonus. So your Freaks will often not have their bonus. The more you try to get your Freaks to have consistent bonus, the more you risk a terrible draw of 3 or even 4 Freaks in your hand.

For a 5* to be justified, it has to be a perfect combination of stats, ability AND bonus. Even the topend 5*s are worse than the topend 4*s if they don't have their bonus. This is why there are really no 5* Skeelz justifiable outside of Caelus.

In other words, 5* is too much of an investment on a character in a clan where you have to be viable without bonus. And also there are really no topend 5* poisoners.

That being said, Baldovino isn't just a poisoner. Baldovino is really awesome and terrifying and underrated. But you should not play him over Grudj because Grudj is the best Freak character.
