So, what are some thoughts on Wazzmakka? Do many people think he is viable? For a 4pt Elite I think Gorgutz is simply better and easier to play as an alternative.
However, since the Kommando nerf (and indeed even before bomb ability nerf), I have been trying to combo Wazzmakka's scrap call-down ability with the Kommando's scrap bomb. I have yet to really get even a single instance of this combo to really be effective even when against a tac marine spam blob. Whether due to my lack of skill or awareness by my opponent may not matter as this is a cheesy combo that requires a bit of over-commitment.
In response to a comment basically saying Wazzmakka isn't a viable competitive option, @Stoner asked if anyone watched "FoxClaw"(Ork) VS "(KT)Bikerushownz"(SM) match.
I believe this is the match: https://youtube.com/watch?v=FaDMX-1bj0A
Crazy marathon of a game (Thanks @Stoner for pointing out and FoxClawTV for uploading)! But Wazzmakka really gets a good scrap turret proc early, defends some points, and then for the rest of the game really just pokes at node points and runs from anything more than a land speeder. Maybe some action I missed or I am forgetting, it was a long game. So the point he was trying to make is kinda lost on me...
So topic here is what are great plays or strategies you use with Wazzmakka? Does he make the cut for one of your elite slots?
For me, it is really all about pulling the opponents elites into my army with his beam. Scrap beam is really slow to me and Wazzmakka needs to be stationary when channeling scrap turret and that is a deal breaker for me on that ability.
