I actually kinda agree with ghelas after some time testing with Rescue
. i laughed the first time he said Rescue
is broken, but now i see why. while it is true that a mediocre hand of rescues is fairly bad, a good hand of like 16 stars Rescue
is almost unbeatable. thus, double olding IS a viable strategy that can win you almost 20% of games automatically if played right.
@dejekt did you say half decks?!? thats an invalid argument sorry. Rescue
doesnt exist in halfs. Angelo
is a bad comparison, SoA and SoB function differently. Flanagan
is more like it, Lea
and him are about the same, but Lea
used to have more threatening teammates.
while it is true that Montana
pretty nicely in most cases, Montana
has a HECK ton more weaknesses. some might overlook that min. of 8, but it pretty much takes away their ability to old (zero pill). while 1 pill is not that much, using that on 2 cards is already 2 pillz, which can make a huge difference to the game.
then, comes Uppers
. these clans are awesome counters to Montana
, but kinda not that good versus Rescue
. reason? minimum.
.. mm.. i might agree to a certain extent but they will need to take something away then (Cliff
all in all, to sum up rescues are powerful, because of fairly powerful base stats (Sledg
, even Glosh
) and their bonus. hands down best bonus in game. this bonus allows them for a HUGE margin of error. my opponent can perfectly read 2 rounds, and end up 50-50.
