  1. CAGE BALL THREAD

    Interesting I guess. Not sure why SF is working on all these weird deployments and stuff so much. In 17+ years of gaming, I have basically never seen any 'alternate' formats of mini games take off that deviate any real amount from 'standard' play. The only one that I can think of that was fairly successful was Who's the Boss in Warmachine. At the last convention I attended, there were 4 players that played 'Dodgeball' and their event was literally over in 20min. They also offered speedball and I don't believe anyone even played it.
  2. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    All of that relies on her being able to snowball dodge to engage... Most of her team will be out of her kick threat range if she is on the middle line and will have to move before doing that

    Hunters...
  4. New Errata?

    I'm just assuming we will forever be stuck with Vitriol, Midas, Harry, AnG etc lol
  5. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    I fully agree - he made the mistake of putting vitriol in cover towards the side of the board - hence why I specifically kicked off to the other side of the board so she couldn't retrieve the ball and clone
  6. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    It is hard to show it, but he did try to protect the ball from Shark, it took Shark all 6 influence and a few << results to get the ball. Allowing Shark to Start in the middle of the board for easy T1 legendary and have the ability to go very deep into enemy territory all while kicking off on a board edge that I could 'zone' out my opponent a bit made for a pretty miserable/boring game.

    Did one test game with Fish vs Alchs. Kicked off the Jac in the Corner of the board away from Vitriol. My opponent retrieved the ball and kicked it back away from my front line (Shark/Greyscales). 1st Activation with Shark caught 4/5 remaining enemy models in legendary, still got to the ball, scored goal. Kicked Ball back out to Midas, Scored Goal. Kicked Ball back out to Greyscales, scored goal. He kicked the ball back out towards a flank. Jac got a push off thanks to kicking the ball so close to the flank and my opponent having to retrieve it there. Score at the end of t1 was 10-4. Stopped playing there.

    The kick lockout thing makes me think of Jac - you can potentially make it so the opponent has to get in a very bad spot in order to retrieve the ball - and now the other team will be more spread out, less likely to be able to do anything about it etc. I imagine mostly defensive oriented models will be put on the mid line aka Greyscales, Hoist etc. So most people aren't going to do much to them before they get out of dodge.
  9. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    - You hit one of the main ones. The 'Vitriol' problem of being able to steal the ball t1 with ease and score can now apply to almost every guild in the game. - The kicking player can essentially 'zone' out a good kick by kicking towards the table edge where he has placed a model in the middle line towards the edge of the board. Hard to explain this one in writing without a diagram but basically fast/long range kicking models can really fuck with things especially when you have alternating deployments. - Slow teams (looking at Brewers) now will have players starting even farther away from the enemy. They are also now forced to be spread out which definitely hurts them. There are a few more that I see off initial looks but I gotta get some work done today.

    Do you shill for everything or just SF?
  11. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    What if, and I'm just spitballing here, it was an alternate format that is never going to be used in competitive tournaments?
  12. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    I have also talked to some of the competitive/top ranked crowd and we are not excited for it. Too many obvious flaws with the system.
  13. PITCH FORMATIONS THEORY THREAD

    Now everyone can perform the Vitriol and steal the ball t1 from their opponents and score!!!!
  14. I am a fan of when it is needed. Certain models have needed a change for quite a long time.. and they are still around doing their over the top bullshit.
  15. ''Balance Changes Happen all the Time''..... *looks at Vitriol, Midas, Harry, AnG, Hunters* SF lack of balance changes is actually killing interest in my local meta. Certain models are obviously broken and they drag their feet worse than PP to get shit fixed.
