Hi,

I saw a voting-thread about AO difficulty with the following resutls:

1.Cthulhu
2.Shub
3.Yog
4.Azathoth

After playing some games with each AO, i think for a 2 player game there is a huge difference in difficulty for each boss.

Azathoth was really tough with 2 investigators ( talking about random combos of investigators )

After him i was really afraid of how hard it gonna be with the next one, but i was wrong.

It seems like the true strength and difficulty of other AOs relies on number of investigators ( more gates, more monsters, requires more clues for each effect etc... ) and maybe their reckonings and passives are more harmful with 3+ players.

Anyone else noticed the difference ?

i strongly recommend consulting this oracle:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZdxFQZu-5jT9zyTRuE0J...

It contains stats, based on thousands of accumulated play results, on number of investigators, which AO is most difficult (both before and after awakening), and other useful things.

See the Investigators tab on the above spreadsheet for "hard stats" on investigator numbers.

i keep a record of every play with our group when we play eldritch.
I do not however count the number of players (mostly between 4 and 6)
but i have played the game now 48 times and below are the stats of our group:

AO Plays Wins Losses
Cthulhu 6 0 6
Azathoth 2 0 2
Yig 8 0 8
Shub-niggurath 6 2 4
yog-sothoth 5 2 3
ROTElderThings 3 3 0
Ithaqua 4 1 3
Syzygy 4 1 3
Nephran-Kah 4 2 2
Aboth 4 4 0
Hastur 2 1 1
48 16 32

so you see, cthulhu, yig and azatoth we never managed to defeat but on the other hand roftheelderthings and aboth are the easiest AO's (however i recall a very close victory against aboth one of the games which would have been a loss if there would been another turn).
