But what about those mathammer players? The guys who see only numbers and percentages in the game, one guy in particular I’m thinking about wins all the time just because of this- they are immune to my jedi mind tricks- they are the Watto’s of 40K.
How do you deal with them?
My solution is to get them to roll dice! When you roll dice in 40K bad things happen despite the laws of averages, %, etc. There is a human element to rolling the dice- Jawaballs rolls “1” almost every other die, for real! Mathammer dudes will hash it out, and enough bad die rolls will throw their game off since dice are not “supposed” to roll like that. Another tactic I use is to go against the logic of the game- like assaulting with Necron warriors en mass, etc. Things that make no sense often throw off guys like this, where the more emotional counterparts seem to just brush it off.
