    Kick scatter discussion

    Ok I miss spoke. This is where my thoughts were. Thank you. Not on missed passes but on goal kicks and kickoffs. So here is the actual debate. Do we want goal kicks to be as high variance as they are right now? I can see both sides. I really enjoyed having fairly arcuate kick ins and would set up crack back goals all the time with high success rate. But now they have been hindered by the higher variance. My game plan has been hurt by the new rules and I'm sad that I cannot guarantee a scatter to my ready to go score back. But is this part of the game that we want? Do we want to punish a team that was just scored on with a high variance scatter? Do we want to encourage people to set up the crack back goal? Missing a pass is very unlikely 12% 3 dice 6% 4 dice so that's not what we're talking about. Kick ins happen every time someone scores. This is what matters. I mean I still hate catastrophic failures and think they should be less detrimental but I'll resign that to be part of the fun... if I must. So what do we want? Now that we've got the right ideas flowing, how about a more simple fix. A reroll on kick ins. Yes I really like that. That would fix all the problems without changing much. Just say you get a reroll on your kick in scatter after a goal is scored on you. Or if you wanted to get really crazy you could spend a momentum to reroll any scatter. That is actually a good idea too. Probably only one or the other though. Thoughts?

    Kick scatter discussion

    Yes I agree But I honestly think the solution is worse than the problem. So what if a 1" scatter is a little messy but basically gets to the target. I'd rather that then having every scatter as wild as they are. Like I haven't done the exact numbers but it's pretty bad.... a scatter off a 6" missed pass is VERY unlikely to be intercepted by the target. I mean if that is the intent then fine say so. If you want a missed pass to be catastrophic leave it alone cuz man I've have a LARGE upswing in missed passes go terribly wrong. I mean there is nothing to say that that is not the point. Perhaps I'm thinking about it wrong and we all agree that if you miss your pass you should basically give up position of the ball. A feel bad example is when you miss a pass and the scatter is such that the trajectory of the ball does not cross the intended target. This leads to turnovers, balls scattering behind the goal line, balls leaving the pitch unintendedly, and balls that scatter to a place that makes the ball out of play for the turn. So herein I ask *points to the topic* What do people think? Is everyone happy with the new scatter? Or are people feeling the same feel bads as I am?

    Ok time for some more sage wisdom from the frozen north on this side of the pond. I didn't want to jump up and down right away cuz this is really a small matter.... more of fine tuning The kick scatters from front to back of the ball are too extreme. It should be from front to front.... just like every other measurement. I understand it's in efforts to make it cleaner but you basically made scatters d6+1 instead of d6 inches and the extra +1 inch makes for some real feel bads Easy fix. I know you put lot of effort into this rule. I really wanted to play with it more before I said anything but it's been long enough. This is also not an urgent problem. It can wait. But please, it's not where it should be.

    Momentum for a missed goal

    Are we really saying that shots on goal have 88%+ chance of scoring and then in the same breath saying that being able to keep shooting as long as you have influence would be too much? Like do you hear yourself? EVERY GAME there are shots on goal. And going for a shot usually leaves your player out of position. Usually leaves you with zero momentum because you bonus timed it, or didn't because you couldn't afford to. Because momentum is a valuable resource. Like I'm not talking hypothetically here. And Correct. The odds are very high for shots. When people score (as expected) things are fine and everyone has a good game. But when someone rolls a critical miss on a d20... rolls that 6% chance miss on 4 dice.... like it's not really fair. It ruins the game, especially in a serious game. Now does this need to be part of the game. YES. But can we mitigate it slightly? I think so. I think that getting your momentum back is something that without overstepping that will make that missed goal more bearable. You could also have a dodge after a missed goal but I think that would be too much. I'm just saying that there should be some small mitigating factor to make missed shots on goal more bearable and I think that getting a momentum is the best answer.

    Momentum for a missed goal

    You know that’s not a bad idea .... we’ll refunding influence is obviously a no go but having a mitigating factor wouldn’t be unwelcome how about a universal character play that anyone can do Ready Position- Any character can spend Two influence to remove the knocked down condition and make a 1” jog so obviously a low power character play but it’s purpose would be in the event that you were countered and left with unusable influence you could reposition I am very in favour of getting rid of the feelbads without creating an unbalance

    Momentum for a missed goal

    Ok So the boys were going over things... as we do, and the argument against playing soccer (going for goals) was articulated by the following. "If you miss your shot on goal, you not only don't get 4pnts but now you have spent a model's activation, usually 4+ influence, you have a model out of position (usually), you've given up possession of the ball (potentially), AND you've spent usually 2 momentum." So as you can see the absolute PAIN that you feel when you miss a goal is very real and often hard to come back from. So we got thinking. How can you mitigate this pain? What could you do to make missing a goal less devastating? So I figure the best answer is to refund the momentum spent to kick the goal. Change it so that you get back a momentum for shooting on goal whether you score or not. It's even thematic, since the crowd always cheers for shots on goal! Also, Please, please, please try and sneak it into season 4. Don't wait 2 @!&$!ing years like you did when I asked for a momentum for the kickoff kick ;> Trust me on this one. It's common sense, you don't need to playtest it. It's a needed and helpful change ;>

    Hot Shot charge

    Ok sooo never really gave it much thought but the new falconer looks awesome ;> There is weird language around timing for engaging, charging, moving and attacking for hot shot and death from above. So can you charge and use these abilities to make a charge attack from 6" away?
  14. Ritch, you've done what needs doing. Travel. The difference between a good tourney and a great one is outa towners. And I can't wait to repay the favor by bringing the party to yer house next month ;>
