  1. I've been playing Hunters with the Moon extra's for 3 months now and can do OK against most teams. My 9 includes both Captains, and I vacillate between Minx and A&G for the Union slot. I can kick off with Skatha & usually retrieve and score - and then she's out of the game for a while. But they just score right back. T2 Shark legendaries and they score 1 or 2 more - game over. I can't seem to protect the ball vs them and 6 takeouts takes too long - it's over before I've done 2 or 3! So I seem to auto lose to Shark Fish. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
  2. Figures are:- Players, No.Games, Wins, Win % The Union 20 140 66 47.1% Engineers 18 124 70 56.5% Fishermen 13 91 52 57.1% Butchers 12 84 40 47.6% Alchemists 12 82 53 64.6% Morticians 12 84 39 46.4% Brewers 11 77 32 41.6% Hunters 10 70 23 32.9% Masons 85 62 8 50.0% So assuming a 10% margin the only outliers are Alchemists at the top end with 64.6% wins and Hunters (32.9%) and Brewers (41.6%) at the bottom end. These pretty closely align with the guild power levels IMO, and show that work is needed in a couple of areas to mildly re-balance 2-3 teams. Overall a very good balance for 9 different teams.
  3. If they all come in pairs, there is no space for a mascot. Unless they have an odd number in the team?
  4. Some good thoughtful replies. IMO saying we do not have enough empirical evidence 'may' be true, but you can use that argument forever. Hunters players have struggled for over a year, with only SFG claiming that they are balanced. The missed opportunity to buff them in S3 was regrettable. The new releases have helped, but not by much - and these figures highlight that. When I play Hunters I feel like I have to play extraordinarily well, just to try and get an even game. So please; pretty please with sprinkles on top, give the Hunters a small boost.
  5. @MilitaryCooDo you accept that there are 2 outliers in the data?
  6. Top Teams scoring 5 wins out of 7 (26 Players) Alchemists 7 Engineers 7 Fishermen 3 Union 3 Brewers 2 Butchers 1 Hunters 1 Masons 1 Morticians 1
  7. Thanks for the lengthy reply. I'll add that beer to my 9
  8. @Isante - unfortunately true.
  9. I hope you charge SFG for the advice!
  10. How does your system get someone with a 3W/12L record almost 100pts above some one with an 8W/2L record?
  11. Very good article. Unfortunately very accurate too.
  12. The number of available captains isn't the issue. Firstly many teams have one captain who is substantially better than the other. Secondly most teams cannot 'do' 2 viable teams from a 9 man roster or if they can it involves a degree of compromise. Fish not only cover both of those bases, but their captains cover each other's weaknesses very well too. I'd like to see multiple union (2-3) but only 1 on the pitch, and to give players a hard choice with just 1 captain.
  13. Great video as usual and I agree with your player synopsis.
  14. I've played about 10 games with vRage in S3 and Gutter is hands down my MVP. Every game. The tricks that you can pull with vRage and Gutter are filthy - in an awesome way. My usual 6 are vR, Coin (sometimes SB but he's a bit slow), Minx, Harry, Gutter and Mist. A&G and Decimate are also very good choices, but Gutter is my first pick.
  15. Quite simply the best bat reps on the interwebs. Clear sound as you record it afterwards, not too long and good analysis and comment. Please keep them coming!
  16. PM sent
  17. The S3 ones are much better IMO. They are part of the game so would never play without them.
  18. If you are looking at what I think you are:- Your name and full address. The other party is probably already filled in. If not their legal name, company number, and address.
  19. The threat range had no chance of failing. Unlike the pass 'n go option. Any goal shot can fail.
  20. 7" Avarisse Sprint + 1.2" (Greede's base) + 6" Greede sprint + 4" WtG + 6" Kick = 24.2" 4 Inf, no passing required so no chance of failing.
  21. 8 Nicely painted metal butchers plus goal token. £80 Meathook basing needs finishing. Postage at cost ~ £4 UK £6 Europe. (If this stupid forum would let me I'd upload a picture! - tells me I exceed 0MB)
  22. Cheers mate. Will look into it. Never used photobucket and its ilk and previously have been able to upload photo's here.
  23. Bill, Yes. One of many interesting uses that will come out of this pairing Biggest problem is rememmbering to move Greede once they've split up!
