It's been a much longer break since I last posted a battle report. It was not due to lack of battles to write about as I participated in another local online tournament, played on Universal Battle 2 platform.
This tournament was organized by Michael and was called Rage of Isolation 2. If you would like to check the full player's pack, here is the link:
This time we played at 1850 points and as in the previous event, pre-designed maps were randomly chosen for each round. It made sure all participant played on the same battle field. We used online clocks as well, in order to limit the time of the battle and make the experience as close to any regular event.
There were additional objectives too. Each player had to choose one each game and once the objective was selected, it was not available for the following rounds of the tournament. The objectives were selected in secret so players did not know during the game what is their opponents goal for extra points.
However, the most intriguing changes in comparison to the previous events were about the army selection. First, if you chose a faction that you have never used in the tournaments in the last 2 years - you got extra points. Second, factions were assigned to 5 tiers and depending on which you chose, you could either get bonus points as well, or get some deduced!
The aim was to provide a strong incentive to play with something one has never played before and use armies that may not be as powerful as these that are played with most often.
I must admit that I almost did not take part in this tournament due to rapidly shrinking amount of spare time for hobby. And because of that I didn't quite thought about what else would I like to use instead of my Elves. In the end, I decided to go with the same army I have always played with, despite the heavy handicap it would mean in the event.
There are two main reasons I decided to do so. First, it was easier to scale down my existing army and play with what I know. Second, and more importantly, I would have a great opportunity to test my army against armies I have never played before! That was too tempting to overlook so I hoped my opponents would forgive me using the same army as always.

Jeff decided to take Trident Realm to the tournament and here is the army he used for this battle (spoiler alert, he made some last minute changes to it before submitting the list to the event):

I am also very glad that people kept coming during the entire month! That was the idea from the beginning, whenever you start is less important than the fact that you do!

What I found amazing in particular is that we still had people coming and asking to join the fun! At the same time, those who have already finished their projects, embarked on stretch goals and painted some more!

Of course, no two armies are the same and no two players would use even exactly the same army in similar fashion, so I had to come up with a good plan against Ken's Forces of Nature anyway. The army had quite a few units I played against before, be it in the army from the same faction or from another one. Earth Elementals are very good example of these and you could see them featured in the previous battle report.

Undead seemed to be quite a popular faction during Clash of Kings but I have not played against them so far and it's been a while since I played against this army as well. I was thus very curious what Andrew decided to choose for his force and here are the details:

It was the second time I played against Matthew, as we did so a few months ago during a local event. It was, thus, a great opportunity for a re-match, although under 3rd edition of Kings of War this time. I was very curious what would be the composition of Matthew's army. I noticed some very interesting changes and as usual, great looking models on the other side of the table!

Trevor's army was an example of small, elite and hard hitting force. Here are the details of his army composition:
