    S4 Chisel (oChisel) lacking flavour and value?

    I just have to call out that this was a great post. Very well thought out and respectful. Kudos!

    S4 Chisel (oChisel) lacking flavour and value?

    While I do miss some of the flavor of the old oChisel, the changes for S4 are for the better for game design and rules clarity, so in my opinion it's a good change.

    S4 Masons complete spoiler

    Oh shoot, I forgot about that one! HOLY CRAP 5 damage on 2....

    S4 Masons complete spoiler

    Overall super happy with the changes. Not sure why Brick had to lose the 2" melee. Now with Granite with 2" and a much better character, Brick is probably going to be replaced, even with double counter-charge. vHarmony seems SO interesting now. Masons can get up to +2 DMG (Assist Chisel, Tooled Up), so vHarmony doing 4 damage on 2 and clearing conditions everywhere? DAMN!!! Good job SFG!

    S4 Masons complete spoiler

    I, for one, would be happy if no models change besides oChisel and the necessary changes on Hammer, Honour to fit the S4 rules. :)
  6. "Condition Damage" is explicitly excluded from Tough Hide from an old FAQ somewhere in this forum. That's why the character play specifically mentions "3 condition damage".

    Nyk's Adventures

    Great to read your report Nyk! Ouch on the 3 Fish in one tournament. I recently brought out my Shark fish for a local tournament, having not played them in over a year, and my God... Shark still lives and dies by those goals. The games where my goal attempts didn't miss, the game ended in half the allotted time. Then there was the other game where I had to make 6 goal attempts to get 3 goals... Anyway, Shark fish is so fast and have so many threats that even one tiny mistake can cost you the game (as Masons). Key for me is always be slow and methodical, and try to kill the ball with Flint or get the ball somewhere it's hard for them to get to, until you are in the lead. Then Masons have as good of a way to counter score (once they're in mid-field), especially with Honour/Harmony, as Fish do and they have to slow down their scoring. Good luck in the next tournament!

    Season 4 changes

    I hope you're right. The Masons captains' abilities of messing with activation orders and INF allocation (esp with the introduction of vChisel) is definitely one of the hallmarks of the team. Would be sad to see Hammer be a very boring "self-tooled up" person and have no real interaction with the rest of the team anymore.

    Season 4 changes

    I hope you are right Mako, but the wording of the blog suggests that Hammer's max INF is increased from 5 to 6 to account for the 1 INF cost of Iron Fist. If he has a trait where he can use friendly models within 6" INF to power his character plays, then why increase his max INF to "adjust for the S4 rule change"?

    Season 4 changes

    In generally I like all S4 changes so far. Cleaner rules, cleaner game. I'm so far not excited about the changes that hit both our captains. Maybe if they give Honour a 4/6 INF stat it'll make up for the "gain" vs "allocation" issue. I agree with S_A_T_S that having Hammer NOT steal from other players fundamentally changes how Hammer works and how Hammer is portrayed in the fluff (which I understand should not dictate gameplay, but it's nice when it's consistent with how the model plays). I also don't see why they couldn't just have an Active Trait, like the one Alloy has, where Hammer can just steal 1 INF from someone 6" away and then choose 1 of 3 abilities each time he steals, each once per turn? The change to give Hammer 4/6 and Iron Fist as a 1 cost play is a bit drastic and non-thematic.

    Season 4 Changes

    Good changes so far. I like that they're bringing the 1 MP over to Line Formation, but alas, there's still the standoff issue as you described. Which is why I still only play Pitch Formations until the new teams finally break it and we have to revert back to Line Formations. 😕

    vSakana Rules Revealed

    I guess they needed to find a way to "punish" Fish players for not playing enough games at SteamCon to win the Union in Chains event... (yes, I'm still bitter )

    Well done Nyk! I truly enjoyed reading your guide!

    Veteran Chisel

    I want a version of Chisel that wouldn't invalidate oChisel completely. So probably more support, even more dodgy, and a better ball player. This way, when they finally fix oChisel, we'll have 2 very distinct versions of Chisel to play.

    Getting masons

    Haha, I have to admit, that part is "hearsay". I haven't played against him since the nerf, but many of my friends still complain about how strong Thresher still is. I have no strong opinions on it myself.
