That’s a great question. I probably did slow the speed down when I first started playing so I could track what was going on. I feel like when it was two players, it was opposite until the last patch, like my sister would be behind. Now I am always last, no matter which one I meet up with or even if it is all three.
In my two player game, which I am not sure we will get back to after the patch, I have this really weak fairy/pixie guy… super fast, swarm, and ancient voice so he… destroys yellow attacks in the first round or two… just can clear a field almost by himself. My elf has something similar but not as fast, more life, and no swarm… not nearly as lethal. Learning these characters can make such a difference, and yeah one of my scoundrels has a hell of a shield because he’s strong but he lacks the life of a warrior… so he does great right up until he encounters the critters that hit shield and life at the same time.
It’s an easy mistake to make. The reverse can be troublesome too, holding off for that last card placement only to realize, they’re not placing it. If you have really strong support, that can be great, but I’ve held out combo characters before, thinking I would do something nifty in the end only to find out that last move was lame.
The great thing is, although it can change with updates, is the combo of cards can be learned. Like you’re rarely 100% sure what they have and how they will lay them but there are definitely common groups, so I know when not to stick my super quick but weak person in the back only to be slammed by some foe that can hit anywhere on the map.
I really want to know if my rat can have kids.
