In my limited but hugely enjoyable experiance of KOW
is mainly a tacticaly focused game.
Its mainly about how you use the units you have NOT what units you pick for your list.
I am not that good a player, but we often 'swap armies' and use completly alien lists to what we would have picked ourselves.And as far as I can tell the game have exellent internal and external ballance.(EG
the good players win no matter what list they have been lumbered with ...LOL
The thing is about actual tactics, is they are very situiational, and so difficult to pin down.(Unlike strategy which is very specific , deployment and list combinations load outs.)
Generaly,Distraction , deflection, targeting priority, division, (isolating and and outnumbering.)
The IN GAME decisions you make that dictate the ebb abd flow of this intuitive and fast paced game...
is ace .Give it a go and you will not regret it!
