Compound really changed my game. Hopefully he is a template of things to come. He is a fairly useful model even without using influence. I have noticed a trend of less goals being scored when he is around but other factors are involved.
Mostly I use him as an Influence battery, especially early game. All he needs to do is stand 4″ out from the goal and within about 4-6″ of friendly models. His purpose is security of both the ball and the team.
Admittedly, I haven’t had much need to dig to deeply into him. His treat seems to be enough to get things done. I feel confident enough to play my team more aggressively with him around so that does a lot of work keeping the ball away. The other benefit is keeping him as a counter charge threat to anyone who is close by. I had one game where Midas ended his turn fairly exposed to Boar but I did not fear him first activation since Compound was there to charge in and KD a Momentumless Boar.
It is this security that I think helps hold the team together. In my book, it is worth it to have someone who gives so much without asking for much in return.
