    Poor showing on YouTube. Are Brewers that bad?

    I think this would lead us to off-topic fields but you can dig the whole database on Longshanks for answers to this kind of questions.

    Poor showing on YouTube. Are Brewers that bad?

    Statistics of tournament GB games played from 18th May. So no, they are not bottom tier and yes, they can be played and expected to win. You arrived just at the right moment, during Magical Christmas time.
  3. So this won't be a rules question per se rather my surprising revelation but I still think the topic belongs to the rules forum. I started to think about the status of the crossplayers in the Major-Minor Guild pairs. Reading the cards and the rules I came up with my own answer that they function like the Union players in other Guilds and not as Dual Guild players (like Compound or Lucky). Then I found this topic which clearly stated that I was wrong. I'm all good with this intent but I would like to note that the current rules, cards are not really backing this. Firstly the card that comes with the Ratcatchers references Bonesaw and vGraves as Mortician players - pretty much the same way as other Guilds get their Union picks which are obviously not Dual Guild players. (Btw Morticians need an updated version in the resource section since they could still hire Union according to that pdf.) Secondly Compound and Lucky both have strong visual signs on their cards that they belong to two Guilds. Split logo at the top left corner and also split background. These things are completely missing from the player cards of Pelage and Skulk or the updated once of Bonesaw and vGraves. The only clue is on the back of their cards in the form of two Guild signs at the bottom right corner. I think these things could lead to confusion among casual players who are not hunting for info in blog posts or surfing the forums regularly and probably the coming of S4 is a good opportunity to make things clearer. Bonus note: while I was trying to track down the issue I stumbled upon a very strange/funny thing in the rulebook. If you strictly follow the rules as written you can't decide what Guild a certain player is playing for. Of course, it is clear that the icon and the background should guide you to the correct direction (or not in case of Minor crossovers) but the part that talks about the details of a profile card (p4-6) doesn't contain anything about Guild affiliation or how that is marked on the cards.
  4. Well done, Edek! I can just agree with you in every aspect.

    Game plan deck revealed

    Hitting an event that has 0,0031423% of probability is usually followed by strong reactions.
  6. Thankfully, in our community the numbers are still growing but we do see and want to address the possible NPEs. Thresher/Farmers: experienced players voluntarily avoid taking the guild before that bunch of supermen finally get a well deserved nerf. Event stress/frustration: in a bi-monthly base we split our players into two groups (according to ranking points) and hold two separate tournaments parallel. In that way, the not so good or less experienced players can swim in a nicer, more welcoming pond and even snatch a medal with their performance.

    I'm really sorry to hear that but I hope you can still send a pack of winged hussars to raid our lands!

    Idea for Thresher Change

    So we had a tournament today. For the first time we split the participants in two according to Longshanks ranking points. (The idea behind this was to be able to finish with 3 rounds. The Major/Minor league split also helped to arrange more equal games regarding player skills and last but not least we had two winners in this way.) Before today I polled the meta in advance whether or not I should bring Thresher. They said bring it on and so I did. I won by 12-4, 12-0, 12-0 even with a missed 4 dice goal, a missed 3 dice tap-in and I could even get away with a huge mistake in one of the games by letting UM trigger on Greyscales. To be fair, I'm the highest ranked player around and I won a few events before with Masons. However I consider one player roughly equal to my skills and another 4-5 who could give me hard games, all of them played in this higher bracket. The ease I could destroy my opponents was frightening and not fun for anyone. In order not to dishearten the guys even more I decided not to bring him to domestic tournaments until a patch comes.

    I think we derailed the thread too much already. Will send you a PM when I get the time to answer in detail.

    Longshanks bookie feature is well... an interesting feature. I'd not rely on it too much. As for the concrete matchup. It was streamed and I watched that game. Chris' setup was really bad, he had to gather the ball with Millstone who is probably the worst pick for this task. As far as I remember he also had incredibly bad luck missing several passes on the crucial first turn. To his credit, he still managed to gather 6 VPs after that catastrophic first turn but all in all the man who played a better game won that match. Maybe the gap between the two is not that much but I think it is not a coincidence that Henry has almost 100 more points in regards to rankings. That is a massive difference.

    Idea for Thresher Change

    Except there where - according to the rankings - there was not one Thresher player with a comparable skill level to the 600+ top dogs gathered there. A better player is still a better player. Thankfully Thresher is NOT that OP to override this. He just helps to decide roughly even coach skill matchups.

    Ooooh, Longshanks now sports captain statistics.
