Your Lieutenant, and your retention of that Lieutenant, is an important part of Infinity. Tohaa has surged ahead in its ability to field competent Lieutenants and provide them with backup. In this article, I discuss how you can use a few decisions to make your command structure do work for you, and make Lieutenant headhunting a headache for your foes.
This may seem silly to state, but it should be obvious. Your opponent wants to kill your toys.
So let him.
So, I have been dragging my feet on writing a big 2-part battle report from a 2-day tournament last weekend, which (spoiler) I lost (or rather, placed 2nd) because in the very last order of the very last game, I got greedy, and let my opponent beat me in Frontline while I was up 100 army points. RIP hubris.
But something else came up this week that has forced me to reprioritize how much, or whether at all, I will continue playing Infinity and therefore blogging.
Since the tragic death of the Wayward Warcor, I have been (re)collecting a big list of blogs and channels relating to Infinity. Hit Ctrl-F to find a blog of your topics or factions. If you want pure Infinity blogs, I recommend clicking on the link, as many of these were pulled from that thread, but many linked below cover much more than just Infinity. YouTube battle report channels and non-English blogs are under their own categories below.
The Taqeul has raised a lot of eyebrows with Tohaa players. It has a few fans, but overall, it is regarded as a sub-par unit. On the whole, I wouldn’t disagree with the assessment that it is a sub-par choice, but I still want to share my thoughts―since it looks like CB has Tohaa models at the very bottom of all its priorities. Taqeuls in May?
Democrat or Republican? Labour or Tory? Marvel or DC? That’s right, in Infinity, Duverger’s law is alive and well. If you have ever hurt yourself with a trip to the international forum, you have probably seen a thread or two or ten thousand on list constructions. Most of these boil down to Swarm or Elite. Of course, there’s a happy middle ground, but screw the centrists, right? In this article, I discuss these two list archetypes in the unique context of Tohaa.
The resources that exist that allow you to build armies in Infinity are Points, Special Weapons Cost, and Availability. However, given the types of options and restrictions that exist in Infinity, I think there may be room in the future for a fourth army resource. This is a pure game theory article, as I consider what might be if, down the road in Infinity, Corvus Belli introduced something like “CRC”: Command Resource Cost.
