Desert Skirmish Gameplay Video & Some Breakdowns
In the harsh desert environment, two Summoners meet to do PvP battle. Zenon the Arch Mage controls the arcane powers of gravity manipulation and mind control. Sylvia the Druid has the almighty power of throwing squirrels. Who. Will. Triumph?
There are MANY fun and tactical moments in this video insofar as gaming rules of Summoners Fate, such as backstabbing bonuses, counterattacks, characters' special abilities, and more. I'm going to break down three interesting moments and explain them more in depth here:1. Taunt
Soul Reaver has a special ability called Taunt
. Taunt will force adjacent enemies to attack her first. Because we utilize auto counterattacks (which can
be countered with shields or by attacking from the rear - backstabbing), this power is...well, quite powerful! You will see this visibly displayed in the video by the aura emanating around her during this video. Watch the Squirrel try to attack a different character before being forced to attack her, and its ultimate demise:2. Making Characters into Bombs
In this video, watch Sylvia the Druid use Detonate
, a Chaos
spell, on the Squirrel she hurled (her attack) at Zenon the Arch Mage. That does some damage, then she takes it a step further by turning the Squirrel into a bomb. When the Squirrel attacks Zenon, he automatically attacks back (counter-attack), which is fine by Sylvia because by defeating the Squirrel, Zenon has caused much trouble for himself! Take a look at this sweet combo and clever use of counter-attack:3. Maximizing Backstabbing Bonuses
Towards the end of the original video, Zenon uses his Arcane deck to pull off a beautiful and wonderfully manipulative combo. As you'll see in this clip, he first casts Teleport
to transport across the board to attack Sylvia from behind, thus eliminating her ability to counter-attack. He takes it a step farther by then casting Off Sides
, an Arcane
spell (created by one of our players for his Kickstarter reward!)
that swaps the position of your Summoner with any unit. He swaps position with the mighty Arcane Giant
, who does 5 damage against both Sylvia and her adjacent guardian, the Rogue, with his mighty crescent blade. Watch the fun unfold:
There are many more awesome moments at play here, and we'll continue to point them out in videos to come! What were some of your favorite moments in this desert skirmish?
