Flamethrower49's Strategy

New additions, and new intro!  This is where all of the disparate bits of strategy advice that myself and others have composed come to live. 

I intend to publish a guide on every hero.  We'll see if I'm up to the villains after that.  Let me know if you see any issues, or if you'd like me to add anything, or if you have any general thoughts.  If you have a bit of strategy you would like to see linked here, let me know, and I can add it.

Thanks for reading!

Nightmist has been added to the list.

This topic is now stickied! Enjoy!

Oh, what fun.  Thank you!

Flamethrower's made it to the big time now.  Grats. :)

Wraith has been added to the list. 

These guides are a great idea and you have done some excellent work writing them up.  Looking forward to your futher instalments!  I am interested to see your take on Fanatic and one of my sons cannot get enough of Bunker so he will be reading with interest any hints he can on how to play him best :)



Great guides all around! You not only explain what makes each hero tick in clear language, but you really seem to understand what makes each hero fun to play.

I second the request for a Fanatic guide next. I tend to play her quite a lot, but likely haven't found all the uses and combos that her varied deck has to offer.

Wonderful resource, Flamethrower49. Thanks for your effort, insight, and getting this stickied.

I added awp832's guides to my growing compendium.  People that want a Fanatic guide are probably much better off listening to him than to me - she is an Avatar of Death in his hands.  I'll still probably do a guide for her in my own way, so I can claim the complete set, but I still need to work on five more heroes in the meantime.  You can benefit from his information today!

And as long as I was reposting his guides without permission, (he'll probably be okay with it...) I thought I would point people to his excellent Matriarch guide. 

My guide to defeating villains has begun construction, starting with Spite.

Remember there was a thread where Christopher shared his strategy of Fanatic? Would be great to have that in this list as well.

This is awesome. I've actually been wanting to do something like this for a while, but in video format.

Expatriette has been added to the list.  Happy hunting!

Citizen Dawn has been added to the list.

hey flame, if you want to duplicate your guides on the wiki we're building, we can set up individual pages for each there? Don't know if you want to or not, might be more work than its worth :P

That comment, and the thread that led up to it, can be found here.

Bunker has been added to the list.

Hey i noticed a link in your bunker post to kickstarter - given that those links may not be around as long as this sticky thread might (and Is that possibly a Baker only post too?) If you would like why dont you link to the wiki instead?



Your guides have been great so far. Made me rethink some Heroes that were hard to understand at first.

Is it possible to update your other guides to include the other Promo heroes too. Like for your older guides - Tempest, Vissionary, Tachyon,etc ( since I notice you were using the Bunker and AZ promos I assume you also have tried the others).
