  1. What was 'the problem', exactly?
  2. Hi all, I thought I would christen this new forum with a post by Former Guild Ball God and all-around good guy Alex Botts. Alex is known for his ability to write long, well-thought out theses about almost anything and recant the history of competitive SMASH in painful detail. You can find the original HERE. As a point of discussion, I am interested to hear how the changes that have occurred in the game since this was written (in March 2018) have served to address these concerns, and which ones still remain (and whether these are a concern to be addressed, or a feature to be embraced):

    "Guilds" aren't strong or weak.

    Today a young man on acid realized that "guilds" are neither strong nor weak, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the Weather.

    This is my second favourite thread on the forums, after the Stave thread. Remember Stave? Neither do I. My brief input is that I have used Bonesaw maybe 10-15 times, and he is consistently one of the few models in Guild Ball that legitimately feels terrible to play. He is as bad to play as he is fun to paint. His most valuable contribution by far is the memes he generates so effortlessly. Season 4 will save us all.

    Selling: Blacksmiths

    Scoping interest on these. I really enjoyed painting them but am trying to liquidate a few things. Includes both boxes. One of the ball markers and one goal not painted though. My first attempt at non-metallic metals. Came out pretty well I think. Pictures here: SOLD to an individual who truly knows value when they see it.

    Organized Play Update

    So are they competitive, or are they not competitive and need a +1 to the roll to be competitive? I'm confused by the blog post. The message until this blog post was consistently "yeah they have less models (ie. the same number of models @Slothrop needed to win Worlds) but when it comes down to 6v6, they are as competitive as any". Now the message is "They aren't as competitive so they need a leg up via this +1 to roll / +1 card". Surely this wasn't playtested as it would require a LOT of data points to draw a plausible conclusion. Or maybe it's just an apology for Bonesaw. Essentially it feels like a pre-emptive response to people whining about "less models in the roster = worse than other teams". Instead, we have a new and exciting type of whining, like this post. You can't stop the internet beast!
