00:00 - 00:05You know, we worked on Mk. 3 for years
00:05 - 00:07Playtest, playtest, playtest!
00:07 - 00:10We seriously playtested this for years
00:11 - 00:16There were no broken lists, no loopholes
00:17 - 00:21Or so we told everyone!
00:21 - 00:24Mad dogs???
00:29 - 00:31And Karchev?
00:31 - 00:34Have you seen that list in action?
00:38 - 00:40Mad dogs!
00:41 - 00:47All you have to do is push your models up the table...
00:47 - 00:50...and then you clock over to your opponent
00:50 - 00:56And he has to deal with over 400 boxes on ARM18
00:58 - 00:59Over 400 boxes, seriously!
00:59 - 01:01And Karchev on top of that
01:04 - 01:06We even gave him unyielding
01:06 - 01:08On top of 32 boxes
01:13 - 01:1432 boxes!
01:14 - 01:16You can't possibly kill him
01:16 - 01:20Let alone get to him
01:21 - 01:27We made a lot of assassination casters so players would get excited
01:35 - 01:36And then they face Karchev
01:36 - 01:39"How can we kill that?"
01:41 - 01:44But seriously
01:44 - 01:47We had to give him some more
01:47 - 01:49But what?
01:50 - 01:53Eventually we landed on battle-charged
01:54 - 01:56Think of the clock!
01:56 - 01:58You are losing on time as well
01:58 - 02:02He spends no time moving his models
02:05 - 02:07and you?
02:10 - 02:11Short on time?
02:11 - 02:13Think of it
02:15 - 02:17You spend ages thinking
02:17 - 02:20Preventing counter-charges and trying to find an angle
02:21 - 02:28But it doesn't really matter because you are not winning on scenario or attrition
02:29 - 02:30Mad Dogs in the way?
02:30 - 02:32Yes, they block everything
02:36 - 02:39He can just swarm the table with them
02:40 - 02:42And you will face counter-charges no matter what
02:50 - 02:55You know everyone is busy complaining about Wurmwood
02:56 - 02:58Or even Haley, High reclaimer?
02:58 - 03:04Exactly. But I promise you, once you have seen Karchev...
03:04 - 03:09...and his Mad Dogs in action, wm&h will never be the same again
03:09 - 03:11It brings me to tears
03:16 - 03:20You know the Errata in January?
03:23 - 03:26Everyone thinks we will nerf this
03:31 - 03:36Why would we? This is way too much fun
