Awesome Clix: Green Arrow
This week's Awesome Clix is one of my all-time favorite ranged combatants: Veteran Green Arrow! This 50 point powerhouse comes to us from the Cosmic Justice set, and he's just as powerful today as he was back then. As a matter of fact, with the changes to Incapacitate and Ranged Combat Expert, he's even more powerful today.

Awesome Clix is a series that discusses Golden Age characters that should be used in today's Modern age games. Seriously, why aren't you using these figures?

Vet Green Arrow's first 3 clicks are the most crucial, setting up some RCE and INCAP very early on. But most importantly he's got a range of 10 -- wow! Your early strategy is simple -- use Telekenisis to put Green Arrow on the edge of a rooftop in hindering... just snipe all day long!

Continued Below...

Green Arrow HeroClix

If you really want to do 3 damage with RCE, then be my guest, but Incapacitate is where the party's at -- which lets Green Arrow stop the likes of the Hulk or Superman with ease. Get him off of his first click and he's still got good attack values and some Leap/Climb so he can run away and get into a different position to snipe.

In a team, Green Arrow should be treated as a potent secondary attacker. It's crucial that you get him in cover as soon as possible to take advantage of his Stealth. For the most part you don't want to push him off his first click unless it's late in the game and you don't have need for Stealth.

Since you're in Golden Age, here are some feats that can help Green Arrow (not that he needs it):  Alias, Armor Piercing (which goes great with the current Incap rules), Elite Sniper (expensive, but it makes Green Arrow uber powerful), Loner (good card since these keywords may be hard to use), and my favorite card: Lucky Break.

I woul prefer the Veteran version over the Oliver Queen for the other abilities that he has. Versatility in play makes for more options as a support piece.

@upright citizen: Depends. I've looked into sponsoring players for Origin and Gencon before, but it didn't go far. Sponsoring players for local play is a big no-no in my opinion, because both outcomes are bad. (1) If my sponsored players win a local tournament, then it fosters negativity from the local community because you don't want "big companies" coming in and winning local games. (2) if my sponsored players lose local tournaments, then it makes my brand look bad. It's a lose-lose situation.

Of course, I can run my own set of tournaments, like other sites do. But if my sponsored team won my own tournaments, it looks bad on me because it feels like cronyism -- that's not a good situation to be in.

The other question is: who would pay for such a thing? Should I start asking people to donate money, like other sites do? If so, how would those people feel about me taking the money and dumping into sponsored players who could cheat them out of local tournament prizes? Again, it's not really a good situation and it hurts the HeroClix World brand.

HeroClix is a fun game that lets almost anyone be competitive. It fosters competition and friendliness among it's fans, and it's still a very local affair. I'd hate to see HeroClix tournaments turn into a place where you need to have sponsors to win. When I was judging, I had enough grief from players 50 miles away coming in to snipe good prizes from my local players -- if a "sponsored team" did that, I'd be livid.

I'd still prefer the Vet Ollie due to his Incap being more valuable to him then dealing damage in today's game. Yes, a 50 point piece dealing 4 damage is a bit crazy and awesome but likewise if he is hit by a paper towel roll he's as good as KO'd. Thus I don't want to rely damage on him but rather him to slow down the enemy (and potentially deal damage that way).

I here other sites have now sponsored players and gave out race jackets and everything.

Will you be doing this?
