  1. Salt ftw!

    "Inside assets" - Man we wish...we're literally the only media outlet who had to pay to go to SteamCon, we're so far out in the cold that we've forgotten the warm green glow of Giblin's eyes...
  2. Mortician Player Summaries

    Mainly Season 2 Profiles, but still relevant. Also Skulk & Pelage summaries and a Match Report. <3
  3. How to Play: Honour Masons

    So thanks for the great feedback on our last 'How to Play' video. With the responses we have had we're now moving to examine each captain and their common/most used plays. Here's Honour and Tapper from the Kick-Off set, ideal for getting new players up to speed. It's by no means perfect, but let us know your thoughts!
  4. Pelage is bae!!

    What a lady!!
  5. Losing friends from the tournament circuit due to "NPEs"

    We rarely chime in to the forums, but this is an area that we are particularly passionate about and focus on (the preservation and encouragement of new players). I would agree with @Mako that so called 'NPEs' are caused by players rather than the game. Yes things are OP (hello Thresher) but on the whole SF do an excellent job of levelling once they've extracted suitable data on balance. Does Chisel's playbook need to be shorter? Yes. Could Vet Graves do with something more exciting on the back of his card? You bet. However, your community can cover these minor issues if they are strong enough. Hey you're taking Granite? Sounds great, I'll put Ploughman out then so we can both see some lesser seen plays. If you're playing a less experienced player, ask them if they're trying the models out still or if they're confident with the lineup and tailor your choices in response to minimise the strain on their enjoyment. That being said, there is a disconnect between the 'competitive' scene and 'casual' gamers, which can be attributed to many things (the OP being filtered 'top down', many SF staff being former/current tournament players, the prevalence of 'competitive' social media resources etc.) However, one thing I'd also add is the role of the internet - and the somewhat negative 'hivemind' of closed consensus the game has. People are more definitive in their statements online, which can then trickle down to those players who read the comments and share views at local clubs/games. Unfortunately I can offer no solutions but instead encouragement, I'm a guy who plays games on the youtubes with his best mate for his own entertainment. I've heard every tactical analysis of my every move, despite doing everything to reinforce the casual nature of games at that I pay once a month, despite that I've found people that I love playing with, and they come on the channel, and people enjoy us having a laugh together (looking at you @Lee) The best thing you can do is to (politely) challenge behaviour you see as inappropriate or disconcerting, you'd be amazed how many keyboard warriors barely utter a wimper face to face - likewise, players that I have had unpleasant experiences playing have been absolutely lovely after a post-game chat/beer. I could chat all day...

  15. Forum Challenge - The Tryouts

    **Spare hour, thought I'd add my two cents! By no means a writer, but had a fun daydream so thought I'd get it typed.** Ribs cracked and lungs heaved heavy, laboured breaths as they compressed from the force of the blow. Batton’s vision blurred as his dilated pupils struggled to realign the competing midday suns his swirling mind had concocted. Knees buckled, legs fell and the worn dirt granted its dry embrace. A wretching cough threatened to spill his tasteless lunch gruel over the painted lines of the grass, with only a hastily pressed fist keeping his lips shut. “Well…he saved it at least?” Tapper said, head cocked to one side as he stood underneath the shade cast from his team mate. “I guess. Doesn’t look like the lad’ll be blocking any more today though, shall I get the next one?” Stave asked. “He’s the last.” The captain sighed. “She’s doing this deliberately you know, she doesn’t see the point in one.” Batton’s eyes watered as his breathing struggled to settle, hot dust caking the side of his parched lips as he rose unsteadily back to his feet. Groggily he stepped back to his mark once more and beckoned over to the player opposite him. This time it hit him in the gut, and his tempestuous meal cascaded freely as he doubled over from the shot. “She’s going to kill the boy at this rate…” the hulking Stave sighed indifferently. “Then you’ll have to explain to the Valentian winemakers why you can’t fulfil your end of the pact.” Tapper stroked his beard absent-mindedly as he watched the boy again return to his mark and signal the striker to fire once more. The weighted leather ball fizzed across the courtyard and smashed into Barrow’s shoulder as he recoiled in agony, clutching his dulled limb loosely. The Valentians’ economic support was a critical piece in his defence against Esters’ political machinations, and they expected to have one of their own representing the Brewers, but their convoluted passing style did not sit well with the Brewers brawling game. The boy was different though…he had something a little more about him. Tapper’s musings were snapped back into reality as a howl ripped out of Batton’s crumpled form, his arm contorted in a grotesque parody of knotted treebranch as yet another virulent shot hit its mark. “Friday! That’s enough!” The captain bellowed. The blond striker smirked defiantly from across the pitch as she stared down at the broken rookie while physicians rushed to his aid with clanking tools and hip flasks of maldriven whisky. Her saunter tempered slightly as Tapper closed in on his wayward forward. “I suppose you think you’ve proven a point?” He asked. “We don’t need one, why waste time protecting the goal when we could get another forward? You think that boy the equal of the Ratcatcher or Butchers’ hulk? Look at him, pitiful like the rest. You’d do better to put the damned cat in goal instead.” Friday hissed as she retrod a familiar argument. “He saved all of your shots though…” Tapper stated coldly. “If I was aiming for the goal that might be the case.” Friday mocked arrogantly. “…but you were, and the boy stopped them…and I’d wager he’d do it again tomorrow.” Tapper challenged. Batton’s pain subsided as he watched Friday storm away from the captain in the centre circle, his view obscured as the towering Stave pushed a pint to his mouth. “Ere you go lad…best get that down you to dull the pain. You did good today…now catch your breath. You’re down in the pit with Pint Pot this afternoon.” The rookie choked on his beer as the physicians dragged him away to prepare…
