  1. Does a model suffer KD, from Windfinder, due to Stormwind Trait, if Windfinder triggers the Eye Spy off the playbook, and then throws it at a separate model. ie. Windfinder hits model A, gets 3 net results, chooses to use Eye Spy on Model B. Does Model B still become Knocked down because of this? The reason I ask is, this is similar to Momentous Inspiration and Sucker Punch, which has been ruled, DOES NOT generate Momentum, because a successful Hit is required and that needs a TN test.... which does not happen when your throw something off the playbook at a secondary model. please help :)

    Don't forget the Potatoes

    The moral to the story is, don't forget countercharge. Playing into Midas, the game was always going to be about the midfield. I received with Grange, Peck, Tater, Grace, Harrow, Jack. I knew it would be a cagy game, in the end I waited until the last activation, setup Grange as a bait piece and let a Lure of gold Katalyst come at Grange.... Tater said no and this setup a turn 2 goal run and kill of Kat.The counter goal was academic, but I had the midfield. We played a bit more with the Farmer healing being important to stop andy easy takeouts. Jakob hunted the ball and I hunted his players. But turn 3 I had another kill and was looking for a goal. A great play off to my right saw Venin tackle dodge and fire a pass to Crucible for a snapshot and it went to 8-8. the Game was in a grind, I kicked it up the middle and while Jakob tried to get the ball back I went about killing another model. In the end I managed to get the ball onto Jack in goal range with a teleport and shot with enough Momentum for the bonus time. Jakob charged with Vitriol (who had a vengence token on her) and I chose to let him try, but countered as I would automatically get the Tackle and KD....... he had to roll 6 x 5s..... to wrap and get the tackle push dodge.... which he did. So then he passed off to an engaged crucible for another snapshot.... this time the dice said no. So it turns out that Grande can kill midas no worries when he is on 7.... so I did this and won the game.

    Exploding Farmers of hypocrisy

    Farmers faced a full strength Smoke line up. Farmers - Grange, Peck, Tater, Grace, Harrow, Jackstraw Alchys - Smoke, Flask, VetKat, Vitriol, Mercury Calculus. This was a funny game, the Grace and Harrow healing did most of the work to keep off the conditions....Farmers went up 6-0 early with a 6 point activation by grange in turn 2. But then grange who is the soak for the team, was out of position. Jakob, then started to push through my team. I found out that while keeping poison at bay with Harrows healing, it meant that by not clearing the condition, Vet Kat had a field day. Grange did some more killing of mercury, and had the ball off to the side turn 4. Vet Kat then did the amazing and came in blowing up 3 models in 1 activation. No armour and low def made for a perfect storm for Vet Kat to get higher into his playbook. In the end It was about 1 activation in it. Jakob cleaned up 2 more models who had been depleted and used a witness me to finish things. The game ended 12-10, and was a massive comeback from 8-10. Grange and Tater got to do their usual things but like all smoke games.... she feels like she is losing until the last turn where everything starts to die.

    Tater is overrated

    I agree, Tater with tooled up just does insane damage.... i play honest land with Tater in for Windle, and grace in for Bushel.... its 13inf (15) with grace, and just deals heavy damage

    Want to win stuff?!

    double dodge are 2 jokers who have no idea about guildball.... they should get Alex Botts on the cast to add some quality content!
  11. Negative as in ball killing. I find I prefer to kick because it gets all my models more space to work in and put pressure on. If the opponent has a good way of killing the ball, thats the only time I dot like to kick. Examples. if they have UM and I dont have a way to get in on them. Or if they put the ball into a corner with a model that has clone etc.
  12. Kicking is a negative if you dont know how to put on pressure and mitigate negative play. I like kicking as the guilds I play need the board position and this enables their game.

    great episode guys, thanks for the shout out. Also love the idea of people being more positive on the forums. Also Hunters are OP, people just dont know it yet.

    I like this play, its a good one to setup the goal. It would also work against siren, and something similar i have used for Fillet as she likes to put pressure on in turn 1. Another one i like to use is to simply get the ball and pass dodge Midas up towards Obulus first action turn 1. You then have 1 momentum, he is covered by compound, and you put them in a position to either get the ball and lose Obulus, or give up a goal. Always make sure your at 10.1 inches off obulus, so he has to move to get in range for puppet master. he can pass dodge back and take the ball, but then at that point you can use your other models to drag Obby back into your lines and kill him. Push dodges on Midas and Vitriol are great for this and harry as well.

    MO-Ball Podcast ep 1

    Sorry, I disagree, Im sick of people hiding behind the Organised Play document or tiebreak and saying because a ruling exists then blame that not my decision to exploit it. Exploiting a system does not make it right, you might win but there is a moral question. If you want to turn up to events and try and qualify again, then thats your choice. You have to make the decision as to how this effects other people.

    Organized Play Tiebreakers - The Problem(s)

    I thought in the US, you just finish top 8 out of 17 and you get a trophy..... am i missing something here? Maybe we need more weight classes and divide people and positions by eye and hair colour. Then if they come 7th by losing the final by 12-8 to Jordan Nach, I can poke them in their left eye with a hot stick, and tell them it does not matter the colour of your eyes, you still suck and wont be 1st unless you win all your games!!

    How To Play the Condition Game?

    I was about to write on this, but your comments are exactly what I would have said. Alchys are about speed and tempo. Conditions are a balancing mechanism to drop the opponents health or Momentum down to manageable levels. You wont kill people straight up with conditions but can control them and enable your fast scoring game. As above, Vet Kat is the enabler for a fast finish, but dont do it early if the opponent is on 6.... you could put them on 8 and then are in a position that a goal loses it for you. My favourite play is to get conditions on a couple of models in my half of the field, scrum it up but dont kill them, then witness me last activation..... if you have measured distances, Vet Kat can potentially come back on and witness me again start of the next turn..... its super fun

    Double Dodge Episode 12 - Close Control

    If they have 2 inch melee, you wont get the counter. If they are already engaged, they have cleared conditions and want to generate momentum, he hits them back for poison. They cant then clear again with that model. Sorry I was not clear. Also the aura is great wit harry for pushing people into it

    Double Dodge Episode 12 - Close Control

    No probs, so my 9 player list is Midas, Smoke, Flask, Vitro, Kat, Vet Kat, Venin, Calculus, Harry Venin I had been tossing up for a while, He replaced Compound in my list for 2 reasons. 1 My game is generally around goals, If I stop the opponent from scoring, while good, I actually want the ball coming back out, so compound is redundant. 2. he can be the 2 inf battery if you need it, just like compound. I think there are other ways to stop scoring and low tackle results is one of them Venin, can play 2 roles. He is a great soak, hence why I took him into Brewers. With Arm 2 and Sac puppet he can be hard to remove. Then with the 8 inch kick, he is a surprising goal threat to pass for the snapshot. He did exactly what I needed game 1 and got the charge, Tackle dodge and shot.... which is situational, but brilliant and handy. Other than that he is a great counter attacker.... people sometimes go up and attack him for momentum, and if they dont have a low KD, he will counter and get up poison, which is another option to setup Vet Kat later in a turn. You can also just combine him with Harry and push people into his aura for poison.... its great, imagine a push poison result on harry. Flask was my last minute choice. Season 3 people just dont go for the mascots, so Naja and unpredictable is redundant. Naja is a great crowd out but from a defensive point of view, flask can be behind your model and give minus 1 tac with his cover, or minus 2 if he crowds. Also with Midas Touch, you can enable him to get those extra results for a triple wrap on a charge (intensify). Also Dont forget that KD is a condition. So with Venin, Midas Legendary, and Harry with KD and molotov, there are quite a few conditions around. KD can be removed easier but if you go last with Vet Kat, free charge, get a KD and some damage, then push and setup the next turn for the takeout (knowing you can win the momentum race) then its hard to stop...... or harry just molotovs next to someone, and then pushes them into the fire. Im not saying its the right way to play but Sic Em makes me like flask more than Naja.... if i had a 10 man list i would take both. Hope that helps, I did not play smoke as I look to see if I can play her into a squshy team and if I can then ill drop here with Harry, Calc, Vit, one of the Kats depending. Who was that Will guy? sorry, we are forgetful, so thats not to imply that people are forgettable. I will play masons as well to see the other side. Yes we did beat them, but Jakob is just learning them and newish to guildball, but he is a very fast learner. So the result was not the point of the exercise, more to see the power level. Jakob is a great player and has demanded a rematch tonight so we will see!!
