  1. For the events where Blacksmiths are available, using a proxy for Hearth will be allowed. Please print out a copy of her card to use: http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/blacksmiths-guild-home-is-where-the-hearth-is If by some magical chance enough Blacksmiths are fully previewed like this by Friday, Oct 20th, to field a 10player roster, they will be allowed on Sunday, using proxies and printed cards.
  2. Everyone registered on Warhorn for the convention and the events, please check at the bottom of each event page and make sure your name appears there. A few people have had issues where they did fully pay for the convention and event fees but had not actually taken the extra step to 'register' to the specific Guild Ball event. If you need assistance or want to confirm, feel free to PM or email me at james.kroesch@gmail.com
  3. GIC: Bait the Trap

    Sure, I agree he could have played better. So could people into Pre-Errata Shark, Midas, and Obulus. Just providing the feedback that they didn't have fun so it can be noted in the playtest To anyone, anywhere on the pitch was his only beef with it.
  4. GIC: Bait the Trap

    Totally agree that it makes the opponent choose, but what I don't think we want is to create a situation where they have no choice because they are so inidated and tied up. At least with the game last night, that's the experience my opponent had. Just feedback for the playtest
  5. GIC: Bait the Trap

    It wasn't that he couldn't clear it, it was just that in order to he was being forced to give up his momentum from losing initiative every time if he did want to, which meant no counterattacks or def stance and more win for me, in addition to all the other conditions I was already applying through my players. Being able to apply it to anyone with unlimited range gave me even more control where previously he could at least unengaged a player and I would have had to make an effort to control it. I had: Theron, Fahad, Hearne, Jacear, Egret, and Chaska (who literally sat by the goal all game) He had: Fillet, Princess, Boar, vOx, Meathook, vBrisket
  6. GIC: Bait the Trap

    Our experience from last night was that it was very frustrating for my opponent that any model anywhere on the pitch could have snared applied with no interaction. Even though I kicked off to him, from turn 1 and onward, I was controlling the game between the GIC, Theron with forest and pinned, and Hearne with double momentum singled outs. He was playing Butchers with the GIC that grants life drinker. He never managed to get a single goal or takeout as I worked my way through killing Fillet, Boar, Meathook, and scoring goals. We equated it the Hunters feeling like a season 1/2 Mortitians team. While we both like the concept of applying snared through the GIC, a suggestion would be that the target has to be within some range of one of your players.
  7. Just letting everyone know that the Pitch Pefect event will allow the use of the latest Guild Identities if a player wishes. If a player does not want to use them they can choose to keep the regular unmodified heal value. For the Kick About event, full event rules will be provided soon and Guild Identities will be available for certain rounds. For the Flatcon Cup event, Guild Identities will not be used since they will still be in playtest.
