The Quick Three

Battle 1: Kovokination
Weebomination, Kovok, Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling
vs. Ammen Vale Lashling, Stunted Direhorn, Clockwork Gnome

011015DIf 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.
Record: 1-0

Battle 2: Butler Bob
Chi-Chi, Blighted Squirrel, Servant Of Demidos
vs. Anubisath Idol, Xu-Fu, Iron Starlette

011014BI’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.
Record: 1-1

Battle 3: When Cows Burn
Fel Flame, Son Of Sethe, Pygmy Cow
vs. Unborn Val’kyr, Murkalot, Lil’ Ragnaros

011015AI 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.
Record: 1-2
