  1. How can the Labrats Refute the Exile?

    This is 100% the roughest match up I my self have found for the Alchemists. I can't seem to find the brawling power to win it, or have the tools to get the ball of Corsair AND score, which as you said if you don't is a complete waste with the likes of oSiren & Corsair about. The times I have won the match up the Fishermen have missed a goal, etc.
  2. MO-Ball Podcast Episode 4

    Killing the ball post, again? I think at this point it's clear killing the ball is a necessary act against Football intensive teams in a act to let brawler teams somewhat compete. That's how it currently sits. Really the only discussion that matters is do SFG acknowledge this as part of the game (I know Mr Hart doesn't like it at all) or is something they will change in a upcoming errata.
  3. All aboard the ghost train

    First 3 games under my belt! For the first 2 I used Scalpel, Dirge, Cosset, Ghast, Graves & Minx. For the 3rd I used Scalpel, Dirge, Cosset, Graves, Ghast & Mist Game 1 v Filet, Princess, Boiler, oBrisket, Meathook & Harry. I received, did some kicking and Scalpel dragged Harry into Cosset range. She used her free Second Wind and was primed to score, Cosset killed Harry. We got a goal and filet killed cosset. Ball went out to brisket who got a goal, we killed filet and then got the 2nd goal. Was a 12-6 win. Game 2 v same line up. I kicked, Brisket got her goal and scalpel dragged boiler to his death. Scalpel went on a goal run which rolled awfully and poor old scalpel died. Butchers got another goal, I got a goal with minx but Filet cleaned another player up to go to 12. 12-6 loss. Game 3 v Theron, Fahad, Jeacar, oHearne, Chaska & Minx We received, we dragged Chaska in and got a goal with mist. Hearne returned with a goal back. Kicked the ball out and it landed next to scalpel, Scalpel killed chaska and mist made a snapshot. 10-4, cosset was killed by oHearne as she was on 8 due to a boombox and minx knocks in a goal. Mist goals for the goal run but fluffs her attacks, dies so it's 10-10, best I can do now is try and win momentum and try and kill theron. I get Scalpel to therron and kill Fahad, 11-10. Not realizing oHearne was in goal threat range due to a forest I went with Ghast first to set the kill up, oHearne knocked in a goal and game ended 11-14. Really enjoy scalpel, a lot. Having Mist on the team was massive, enjoyed her in place of Minx. I can see my self replacing Ghast with Casket for the next game as damn people are easy to drag into there death. I both love and hate Cossset, she's the definition of the glass cannon. I am thinking of trying B&M in place of her but that does leave me lacking in KDs. Maybe Scalpel, Dirge, oGraves, Casket, Ghast & B&M would work? Though light on influence. I feel like Ghast is key to scalpel if only just for the KDs. Home crowd is really, really rough for Scalpel and means a lot of the time a first activation with her is scary. Enjoying the voodoo queen none the less. The next plan is Scalpel, Dirge, oGraves, Ghast, B&M & Mist.
  4. On a brighter note, just noticed I've bumped up to ranked 47th in the world. Could be worse I guess. If I manage to get higher? Awesome, but for now it's going to be about bringing the most banter I can to a game.
  5. All aboard the ghost train

    I will no doubt try Casket at one point.
  6. Lists

    Hiya @Ghostwolf156 welcome to the forums. I can't a really in depth on guide to Hunters players, but just so you're aware the current iteration of the OPD requires a 10 man roster my man.
  7. No i won't be actively trying to play worse. Just my mindset going into a event will be much more towards the social side of the game. Throw some banter, meet new people and share some good laughs as opposed to winning is the main priority.
  8. I appreciate your statement, but I'd rather head to a tournament expecting to go 2-2, rather then head to a tournament saying anything less then a 4-0 is a waste you know? Might just be my own mindset.
  9. Not so much just dice though, I feel frustrated and annoyed if I lose game. If I make a mistake it really tilts my mindset, as well as dice as my ultimate goal is only about winning. I don't want that to be the case, my ultimate goal is to enjoy games and meet new people. Winning should always be a secondary bonus.
  10. Hey all. A few months back I set my goal to get my self into the top 16 rankings for the UK with the ultimate goal to qualify for the UK masters. As a bit of background, I've played table top gaming for around 12 years and played games like warmachine and 40k competitively for the last 5-6 years. I feel like I have the knowledge, mechanical skill etc etc to make it and recently I've been playing more and more practice games and I'm lining up the events as much as I can. I have found something, since setting my self this goal however, I am not enjoying games nearly as much. Practice games less so, but tournaments game much more so. I find myself almost turning into a different person when competing. As a rule of thumb I think I am a laid back guy, but I know recently in games I haven't been so laid back. I don't want to be like that and I think this comes from overly worrying about results, every bad dice roll or mistake seems to frustrate me. One thing I do know, the only reason I play tabletop games is to hang out with like minded people and roll some dice. I've found that given my self this goal and overly pushing my self to get good results has made me ONLY fixate on the result of the game. Not on the enjoyable experience, the banter between players and the big oohhhhh ahhhh moments we all enjoy. I'm not saying people can't push them self as hard as they can and still enjoy it, but I have discovered by doing so my self it draws away from the very core reasons I play the game. So, for me it's back to mid table obscurity, all the trash talk I can muster and hopefully a lot more enjoyable experience of the games I play going forward.
  11. So my friend was selling his mortician team, I always wanted to try them. So UK Nationals just got really interesting. First run out with them on Sunday, going to use Scalpel, Dirge, Cosset, oGraves, Ghast and Minx. Very excited! Will keep you all updated.
  12. We are the champions of the World! :)

    I totally disagree with that statement. Obulus at LEAST needs tooled up for the set up, and only reliably kills 14 health players who are 4/1, maybe a bit better if they're 3/1. Thresher needs 0 to set up, to delete anyone.
  13. We are the champions of the World! :)

    Yeah... stories like this & what I've seen of him is what leads me to think he may be a BIT too good.
  14. Captains and Influence

    Totally agree on other peoples. Vary rarely does Midas get 6, unless hes activating first, getting the ball and a goal. Smoke never gets 6 unless she's going goal run turn 1/2 and wants to give out some condition love. Captains like Filet, Pin Vice, Corsair, Obulus do typically get a max stack. I think knowing that you have to play around it accordingly. Spreading your influence, allocating it where it will get use etc are all parts of the game that you have to use when playing against those captains. As strong as it, it can often act as a detriment to the captain if you're able to punish the heavy allocation.
  15. Single or double captain in the "new" OPD?

    I think there is space for both, but I see singe captain pin Vice ALOT more then I see both captains and I'm yet to see single captain Ballista.
