I recently had a chance to talk one on one with Elyot Grant himself over Skype. Thanks Elyot!
Here’s all 5 parts of the 2+ hour interview:
For the fourth pro-file, I spoke with another popular member of Granular Gaming, Crash0verlord. Just to keep things interesting, I decided to give everyone someone else to poke fun at for making mistakes. I played a series of quick matches with Crash while doing the interview, see the Replays at the end to mock my horrible playing!
Even though Prismata is still in alpha, there’s quite a few players that have made their way to Pro status. I’ll start this series of pro-files highlighting them with a player I noticed doing pretty well in the Masters League and putting in a lot of practice time with the new units, Kurasu.
To help players trying to get a grasp on how to best use the new units I decided to grab a bunch of replays of some of the best players doing just that during the Breach Party!
In discussing the new units with some of these players in global chat, the consensus seems to be that Tantalum Ray and Thorium Dynamo will probably need a nerf as they are pretty powerful at the moment, although the Breach Party settings and newness may be partly to blame. One player even said most games with Dynamo seem to result in the seed supply for all units running out before the game even ends. There didn’t seem to be a p1/p2 favoring combo so far except perhaps with Doomed Drone + Dynamo favoring P2. Overall the feeling seems to be that Dynamo makes things feel pretty weird, almost like April Fools day!
