I'm currently writing a review of the Sentinels Core Pack and I'm curious - how's your win/loss ratio in this game and how many characters do you usually send into battle? Any favorite heroes?
We got our asses kicked by Citizen Dawn last weekend (two times)
Team size depends on the situation. If I'm playing with friends, it's almost always 4 or 5. If I'm solo-ing, I run 3 heroes at most. Total win % is probably under 50, but I really don;t pay a ton of attention to that to be honest. But if you're playing the original version, as opposed to the Enhanced one, team size matters a lot more. One of the biggest changes between versions (the expansions added this, actually) was a scaling of villain damage. So instead of them hitting for a specific amount regardless of the number of heroes, the damage they do now scales to the hero number.
My personal favorite is Expatriette (but I think she's an expansion character). She's basically The Punisher. Lots of guns, variable ammo types, and a pair of signature pistols named Pride & Prejudice (she can fire both if they're both equipped).
I tend to like playing straight up damage dealers in pretty much any game I play, so I'm also fond of Haka...who doesn't love a giant Samoan who does more damage if he gets messed up and angry?
Citizen Dawn can be NASTY to take on if you end up with a series of her damn Citizen allies coming out of her deck in a row.
