New Poll: Points
The poll for this month is a little less controversial than some of the past polls:
What size games do you typically play?
Note that I included the 35-50 point range because I believe that there are some differently-sized games common in Germany between the 35 and 50 point ranges.
I'm curious to see how popular certain levels are in various metas because I think there can be some model/faction choices that change depending on the size game (I think Gargantuans will be way more viable at 50+ points). Now let's look at the results from the previous poll.
How do you react to seeing a Colossal on the table?
"Needs to be banned." - 3 (4%)
"I'll wreck it." - 39 (50%)
"I'll ignore it." - 7 (9%)
"Meh." - 20 (26%)
"I'm scared!" - 9 (11%)
Total: 78 (100%)
I'm not surprised at these results at all and I think they're fairly representative of the community. In fact, now that the Stormwall has been on the table for well over a month, I'd be interested to see if these numbers have shifted more towards the "wreck it" or "meh" categories. I do find it interesting that fewer than 10% think that you can simply ignore a Colossal - very different from the reactions I saw from Battle Engines. Perhaps soon we'll have a poll on the reaction to battle engines now that some have been out for over a year.
I think we can see that a mere 15% of the participants in the poll react negatively to Colossals and I'll be interested to see if even such a small percentage of the population will change their minds by next year.
