    knock yourself out, would be no different then old pox.

    I'll admit i'll be rusty at positioning around domi's but i'm not so rusty as to of forgotten how to do it.

    just looked over the fw runes you have available, funny as it is it immediately brought me back to the old pox meta because all the same issues I had with fighting FW back then are still there now, though i'm not giving you any hints XD

    FW has some really good runes for this, your support rune selection is amazing, should be a fun match, even if I get my ass kicked lol

    Oh man, IS would get to use Dwarven King + Catapult. That alone would probably win a few games, especially with Bane Shift like Battlerager and Griffin Rider with Barrage also being available.

    What about Harbs, would they be legal? They're technically from the first expansion, but in this kind of format the players who own them would have a definite advantage over players who don't.

    I plan to use my harb so yes lol

    if my opponent doesn't want to use harbs i'd take it out without complaint, it's mostly for fun so don't really want to make it rough for anyone who wasn't around back then.

    that said they cost a ton now, literally my most expensive deploy by like 15 nora, so not exactly the most broken thing.

    also that would be quite the trip, to face dk+catapult again heh

    So if anyone was curious here were the mvps from my pov for all sides.

    St -lonx hunter, risen yeti, glacier rhino, Jake elder

    Would probably try things a little different next time

    Fs - toad rider thing, kartch, muck dragon, snaptooth helm(phys res 3).

    Everything was so efficient in this one so ard to pick the best but that toad rider was so much meat at 50ish Nora.

    Fw- Lich king, executioner, abomination

    this is both fasinating and amusing. I am tempted to join, but i am not convinced this is an accurate portrayal of old school. Also i started this game playing ST, so if i am doing this i guess i am going back to ST.

    Well it's not the same.

    The factions have the same weaknesses st only have 1 magic champ, no shatter, etc

    The tactics of each faction are shockingly similar to what they were back then far more then I ever expected they would be.

    But all that said it's not the same, the power levels of the factions are higher which prevents the games from being slow. They are far slower than games now but they aren't slow.

    The game mechanics like lack of cliffing and such are different, avatars, etc.

    My general opinion is I have more fun playing the meta in this scenario then I did the one back then.

    I doubt it'll be fun forever but when that happens we could always change set blocks.

    The best way to describe it is as follows, soko put a ton of work into balancing the runes of pox, which makes it possible to play these block formats very easily.

    To compare it to t1 magic the gathering would be accurate for our current ranked format, in t1 mtg it's nothing but combos, instant kills, removal tricks etc, but it would be accurate to call this "core" format a block format, the plays are smaller, and more interesting as the game regains it's complexity.
