LoL Special - The First Definitive Infinity Tier List with Rob Cantrell

May 21, 2022

Following a thread on the FB IGC page of someone looking for a tier list, Nick called Rob's bluff and the two ended up making one.

 

As we both believe tier lists do not apply to Infinity in the same way as they do in other arenas, They thought that made them the best suited to produce such a list. This has been produced for entertainment purposes and should be considered more of an opinion piece than stone cold facts! We had fun, so I hope you do too.

 

This is the audio of the full video which can be found on Rob's YouTube channel, please make sure you like and subscribe - https://youtu.be/fzjgSh0c4jA 

 

We recorded in front of a live audience via the LoL Discord - you can join here: https://discord.gg/mqmy69CAD5

***APRIL MONTHLY CHALLENGE - SQUAD GOALS***
That's right folks, the new fireteams rules are out, and while we're all frantically rebuilding our lists again to find out what's hot and what's not, we figured it would be a perfect time to get the wider communities thoughts on the changes.
So, for the month of April, we want you to play with the new fireteam changes, build some lists and have some games!
Let us know how the changes have impacted your favourite sectoral or VANILLA faction (yes Rob, you can participate in this one) 😉 and ask yourself some questions:
Are you taking different units or profiles now?
What do you think about multiple haris teams?
Will duos make it into your vanilla lists?
Thoughts on defensive fireteams?
Have these changes fixed any issues you had with the game?
As always, write a report with your thoughts and analysis on some games you've had with the new changes and send it to us as a Google Doc or video report (we love those) to:
lossoflieutenant@gmail.com
We always appreciate pictures and post game analysis to compliment your writing, so please add those if you can
 
Thanks for listening!

MARCH CHALLENGE - NO RISK ENCOUNTERS
 
Often in our games of Infinity, we deal with problems fairly head on: with bullets. But with the face to face nature of the game and the ever present risk of your opponent rolling a crit, there is always a chance your well laid plan ends in the death of your own trooper.
In addition, there are times when you are presented with a problem that you are either not equipped to deal with, or the risk is too great to tackle head on. This is where these "no risk encounter" tools and skills come in handy.
Therefore, for this month we want you to think about ways you can deal damage to your oppoent, while keeping your own trooper safe
Examples of these "no risk encounters" include:
 
Speculative Fire
Guided Attacks
Putting your opponent at -12 to hit
Silent ammo
Shooting outside of LoF
 
So for the month of March, we want you to think about the above examples and try to leverage them in your games of Infinity.
TR bot locking down a lane? Can you put it at -12?
Linked Bolt Sniper giving you problems? Have you considered spec fire?
Worried about how to deal with your opponents TAG? Is there a way to spotlight and guided missile it?
Annoying mimetic model in suppressive fire in the midfield? Do you have camo that can walk behind it and shoot them out of LoF?
As always, send in your analysis and report to us at lossoflieutenant@gmail.com
A random winner will be selected at the end of the month to win a blister of their choice from Toy Soldier Imports
 
QUARTERLY HOBBY CHALLENGE ANNOUNCEMENT Q1 2022 - NEW YEAR, NEW TECHNIQUE
After the overwhelming success of our first quarterly hobby challenge we figured let's do another.
We all get stuck in our ways when it comes to painting, we get comfortable with the range of paints or style we like to paint our minis. Maybe you batch paint, or do them one at a time? Perhaps you dry brush or wash all of your minis the same way? Or you've always wanted to try your hand at airbrushing but didn't know where to start?
So, for the first quarter of 2022, which will run from now until aproximately the first week of April 2022, we want you to try a new painting or hobbying technique.
Some examples of painting techniques/styles below:
 
Non Metallica Metal (NMM)
Wet blending
Stippling
Layering
Glazing
Airbrushing
Speed Painting
GW Contrast
Inks
etc etc
 
Whatever it is you decide, just give something new a go and let us know how it went.
For this challenge you can do a single mini or multiple to show your progression over the quarter, or if you chose speed painting, to show how much you got done! It doesn't even have to be a miniature, you can paint up terrain, long as the technique is something you haven't tried before!
All you have to do to enter is send us a single before picture and up to four completed pictures ATTACHED to an email to
lossoflieutenant@gmail.com
A random winner will be chosen at the end of the quarter to win a small box set of their choice from Toy Soldier Imports with our favourite entries winning a limited edition LoL patch!
