I was playing this for the first time yesterday with my cousin, friend and a random.
The whole game we were losing, but idk what happened but my MLG mojo kicked in and I became the king, I got the over shield plus the double damage and managed to wreck their king a bunch of times to give us the win.
It's fun. A lot better than regular Regicide. But playing with randoms suck as most of them don't bother defending the king which gets frustrating pretty quick. Too much people treating it as regular slayer.
