An interesting question came about in another thread about how many “actual” dwarf players were out there. So my question / the purpose of this thread is to get a rough idea for interest sake. Going under the pretence that dwarves became very relevant in the current meta (solid casters with several competitive lists) how many people would play them? How many people are currently playing them at their current power level? And how many people are wanting to start them without any changes, but have yet to start? Please post where you stand and I’ll make a tally and post the findings periodically for kicks! If you’re not interested in dwarves at all then feel free to post and perhaps I’ll add you in a simply a “no interest” tally.
Edit: and just to be clear, this is if you would run or be willing to run one - two full Rhulic lists.
Agreed, you need to be specific in the metrics you are trying to measure. So qualifying what you mean by a Dwarf Player is a good start and building stipulations around it.
However, I don't think this poll/role call will be very complete; the forums are only a small subset of actual players and as such isn't a very complete representation of the total population. At least it gives you, maybe, a sampling?
Those stipulations aside, I consider myself a dwarf player. I always have 1 of the 3 dwarves in my 2 list pair (I can think of one Steamroller which I didn't in the past 3 years).
I don't exclusively (or even mostly) play Mercs... but when I do, I pretty much exclusively play Dwarf Casters/units (the exception being Shae, who I count as an honorary Dwarf because he had a (bad) them that used them back in MKII)
