    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    Considering vChisel is an upgrade to oChisel in pretty much every way, I'm looking forward to the oChisel s4 update.. She certainly put Masons back onto my list of "guilds to play" in the build up to the s4 release..

    Cat vs Dog : pre season 4

    I think this is a major part of my indecision, I'm more than happy playing Tapper into every match up and while I understand he can be easily controlled by the likes of Theron, Obulus and Ballista, I honest think I would only run Esters into Rats or Alchemists for the condition removal.. Even then, with Hooper and Stoker being able to clear their own conditions with a bonus I don't know if she would get field time at all. Either way, I think I'm going to get "pimp pooch" painted and throw him on the field a few times before my next event and just decide on the day..

    Cat vs Dog : pre season 4

    The Skaldicfest sculpt is the mid way point between becoming captain of the Brewers minor guild.. His veteran version also has a cane and a pink leopard print jacket..

    Cat vs Dog : pre season 4

    It's not so much for ball killing (although it's certainly an option), I just think with the 2" shadow like dodge and 6"/8" move he can get the ball wherever it ends up and kick it back in the general direction of the rest of the team, while 5/0 defences and Unpredictable Movement keeps him relatively safe from any repercussion.. I do agree I'd much rather have an additional field option rather than both mascots in my 10 so I this time I may leave the kitty to sleep among the kegs and beer cases back home.

    vCalculus

    Something I find amusing with this card is her ability to "kick to space" at her own feet, poison anyone within 4" then remove one of the conditions to dodge wherever the ball ends up before moving. It's not the safest play and potentially "Christmas land" as she either needs the ball or be stood engaging the player with it, but you can't really argue with a 20" goal threat for 3inf (4 if she needs to tackle the ball first)..

    Cat vs Dog : pre season 4

    I find this interesting as I always preferred the kitty before Sic 'em became a thing.. Obviously he lost a lot of necessity when they changed Tactical Advice but the option to give Tapper 6inf is always nice and I still feel he's the safest ball retriever in the guild, especially with the added mobility Friday offers.. That being said, I find myself increasingly tempted to get the pimp pooch painted and on the field for my next event.. (mainly because of the hat)

    Cat vs Dog : pre season 4

    Sorry if this has already been discussed in another topic but I've noticed most comments on here and the Facebook are suggesting that people prefer to take the dog as a single mascot in their current tournament 10. I'm kinda curious as to why.? Personally, I agree you only "need" one mascot in your lineup but while I like the pooch I always seem to get more use out of our murder kitty. I also can't remember going against any Brewers players that weren't using the cat.. While I've not been to any events since V3, I'm wondering if the arrival of vDecimate has raised the viability of our doggo (and Esters) so much.? Personally it feels like too much egg / basket stacking but I'm open to have people change my mind.. So, which mascot do you prefer.? Do you have any thoughts or insights regarding mascot choices.? What do you feel are the pros / cons of each.? Answers on a postcard, or preferably posted below...

    List choices v Alchemists

    Slightly off topic but I've found vDecimate is incredibly susceptible to conditions with the 3/1 stat line and only 14 boxes.. Does she get brought along for the 2" melee vs unpredictable movement or is it just a case thst with Esters buffs and bag of quaffers she is the flavour of the month.? Also, as a side note, Smoke is one of the few match ups where I may not bring a Spigot due to the conditions / low health pool issue..

    Veteran Decimate

    Depends on the opposing guild, I still don't think vDecimate is an auto include into every match up.. Saying that, the "usual" six are Tapper, Cat, Hooper, Friday, oSpigs, and vDecimate with Mash, Stoker, Pisspot and vSpigs on the bench..

    Seasoned Spigot

    Best part about his player design is that he instantly increases Harry's viability without changing the Harry card at all.. Attack (Charge), "Balls Gone", free dodge, "Reading the Game", free dodge, (movement if not previously used), 8"shot range..
  11. So, after the huge success of the rookie league, it was hinted at during the V3 Keynotes Q&A that this years event was going to be based around a "Rookie Academy.. With this in mind I have a few speculations regarding how this could work.. Scenario 1 : Similar to last years event, Guilds are pitted head to head sharing a rookie player with the "winning" guild receiving a full "squaddie" version of the player later in the year. While I am not directly opposed to this there are some guilds that are more "fan favourites" (Butchers, Brewers, Union, etc) and as such these teams will probably need to be placed against each other or just win.. Also, based on the outcry from the "losing" guilds after the previous years event, I can't see the guys at SFG wanting to upset a portion of their player base again.. Scenario 2 : Every guild has access to a selection of "neutral" rookies which are also available to other guilds.. Points are earned by playing Rookie League games during this period and once the event ends the community gets to vote on which rookie player ends up going to which guild kinda like an NFL draft.. While I think this would be fun, the logistics would be a bit of a pain and could result in some guilds ending up with "leftovers" as all their available rookies get drafted before their turn to choose.. Scenario 3 : Every guild gets their own rookie to use in Rookie League games for this period and players report how they have chosen to progress their respective rookie. Once the event is over all these results are compiled and the most regularly selected upgrades become the stats, plays and traits which end up on their "squaddie" card when they get promoted in the following s4/s5 seasons.. This is probably my favourite scenario out of the three and would ensure every guild gets a thing.. It would also be far easier for SFG to control and balance mechanics to fit within each guilds theme.. Either way, I'm sure the event will be fun and I can't wait to see what new shinies we get to play with.. Does anyone have any other thoughts or potential scenarios which they could base this event around.? #saveamber

    Need a better team list, Model question,

    That's probably your first problem.. Honestly though, with either captain I feel Friday, Hooper, oSpigot and "The Cat" are a good core for a 1/4 or 2/2 loadout.. My 6th spot usually depends on what my opponent is playing; Stoker into heavy condition teams, Pisspot against "brawlers" especially "The Bear", Boar, or any other "furious" models, Mash into football teams and heavy 2"melee, You can swap vSpigot for oSpigot if you want a more "footbally" approach, Lastly, if you can get hold of a Lucky or vDecimate they are worth trying out either in the 6th slot or as a replacement for Friday with any of the above mentioned comps..

    V Rage into Shark

    I was going to suggest Hemlock or Snakeskin instead of Harry.. If you have space for the lion I found he can really screw up the shark team influence maths and is usable in Union till October / November..

    S4 arrives october 12th

    Why not release them arbitrarily to LGS in tournament packs gradually over the next three years between season 4 and 5.?

    Season 4

    While I don't think oSpigot requires a nerf, I would probably accept that exchange.. Maybe throw Tooled Up onto Pisspot though as Hooper generally needs all the influence he can carry..
