Could you explain why you open with kurina instead of man eating tiger? You only have 2 copies and kurina's auto skill gets more useful the more units you have out on the field. Added to that, the fact that refess can open with a unit that can kill your first copy on turn one (while not being able to do that against tiger), generally getting her killed early while kurina's attack boost is very nice to have against refess. The main advantage I see is that the you can character lock a gowen opponent's kurina for a while if they decide to open tiger, but I don't feel it is worth it. What is your opinion on the matter?

The open Kurina is for the Gowen mirrors, because if your opponent opens Kurina when you tiger, you go tiger into what? Sala? Either the kurina will rest, or whack your tiger for 20, die, then next turn, you lose tiger and sala, so your opponent is down 1 kurina, and you're down a tiger and sala, your SS went off first, so then he can throw an SS right back at you at his convenience, and he'll have more salas in the file as well, and if Gowen can keep salas alive to smack things, that's quick pain in quick fashion.

They're getting very low view counts so far. How many new players does Alteil have anyway?

I was actually thinking tiger -> spores against kurina opens. Also getting to your first SS early isn't bad and you can place a level 3 faster. I also noted gowen mirrors as a potential advantage to the open, but it doesn't seem like a major setback in mirrors and I wonder if tiger might be better overall because of matches against refess.

So if you do have 2 copies of kurina doesn't that make it better to play her earlier and get her out of the way since 2 copies will suck mid/late game compared to tiger. Basically even though I run 3 kurinas in my gowen rush I would say about half my games I don't even use the 3rd copy. She is a good opener and can kill other openers and is a free revive. She can be treated as a sacrificial unit in many cases. The reason you play her early is because tiger will probably just be better mid game since you have 3 and brings keeps pressure on slots 7-8-9 on your opponents side of the field. As stated by aquas you kurina can also be great in the mirror match so they can't play her early. I hope this gives you a better understanding of kurina 1st and tiger 2nd. If it doesn't just do things your way, sometimes that works better for me :D

I rarely see people use Tiger's action skill. Which is odd. It's actually pretty good.
