The Quick Three
Battle 1: Kovokination
Weebomination, Kovok, Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling
vs. Ammen Vale Lashling, Stunted Direhorn, Clockwork Gnome
If you judge by win percentage alone then Kovokination is probably my best team of WoD. I guess that’s to be expected with two top tier pets plus Kovok thrown in for some synergy. I think that I’ve had good luck in the queue so the losses will happen eventually, but so far they’ve been few and far between. This battle was no exception. I let the Ammen Vale Lashling stun Kovok without trying to avoid it or mitigate it. I usually get tunnel vision with this team without repercussions. The elemental swapped out the the Clockwork Gnome who got poisoned with a Black Claw enhancement. It tried to repair against the Weebomination but just ended up wasting a few turns instead (since the gnome died before the heal came). I didn’t need to use my MPD.
Battle 2: Butler Bob
Chi-Chi, Blighted Squirrel, Servant Of Demidos
vs. Anubisath Idol, Xu-Fu, Iron Starlette
I’m not sure what I was thinking when I came up with this team, but it’s been fun and has been able to win. I’m glad I finally got over my dislike of Chi-Chi, it’s a nice option to go to when I want a Wild Magic pet. The Servant of Demidos has been doing well for me without even finding a good team for it. I need to get on that: less fun, more super faceroll teams Discodoggy! I certainly didn’t faceroll anyone this battle; I lost. Chi-Chi is off of my crap list while the Iron Starlette has taken its place by turning into a highly despised pet. Not because it’s so great or I lose to it a lot, because it’s one of those pets that can be effectively operated by a drooling half-wit. Yes, I will call it a drool pet. So what does that say about me, losing to a drooling half-wit? I must have made some bad choices like not going for the kill on Xu-Fu when I should have (I use Feign Death instead of trying to hit the triple Fire Quills that I needed). I’ve been facing a lot of idols lately and I have to say that the Servant Of Demidos usually comes out on top. I know idols have been semi-nerfed but it’s still nice to find a pet that can handle them.
Battle 3: When Cows Burn
Fel Flame, Son Of Sethe, Pygmy Cow
vs. Unborn Val’kyr, Murkalot, Lil’ Ragnaros
I half expect to lose with the team above, but When Cows Burn has been doing extremely well, much better than I thought it ever would. Winning does require me to play it right, which I didn’t. I kept in the Fel Flame longer than I should have so it didn’t get any heals from the Son Of Sethe’s moves. I still had a chance, but the damn trap outlasted my Pygmy Cow by one round and went off on the Son Of Sethe on the last round. I should accept that traps aren’t going to be changed, as much as I think they need to be. Crap, a losing night. It hasn’t been a losing night with all of the Hopling teams, they’ve been kicking some butt. I should be finished with POTW #2 by tomorrow.
