  1. 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.
  2. Getting masons

    Heh, Midas is so much easier now after the double Midas/Vitriol nerf. The Season 3 Midas... ouch. That was so tough to play against. Right now it's a pretty even matchup. Midas really doesn't do as much anymore and Harmony, Honour, and Mallet all have ways to deal with UM and Clone. Yes, it's not INF efficient, but I've had many Alch players tell me that they hate seeing those 3 on the other side of the table. Plus Vitriol's 10 HP makes her die to a stiff breeze now, even with Clone and Honour/Harmony having to spend INF to dodge back in. Pretty much kill Vitriol as soon as you can, get yourself ready to score 2 return goals (you can play Flint and Mist too), which is very easy with the Masons, and you'll be killing them faster than oKat can kill you. In the old days, Vitriol (and sometimes Midas) can kill you too, now, only oKat really has that ability to do it easily. As for Masons, I'd still say Thresher Farmers are still slightly at the top. But I'm happy to be bridesmade because the Masons are so fun!
  3. I can definitively tell you #1 is solved by Pitch Formations. Thank goodness to SFG for introducing that.

    It's good to have you here.

    I wished that the rant post didn't get posted. The debate and conversation was going pretty well until that.
  6. There are issues with teaching the momentum mechanics (another set of abilities to remember using a 2nd set of "action currency"?!), and definitely has some of the "win more" problems, but as a game, I think momentum is fine where it is, since as Jaccthelnsomniac said, there's almost no way to remove that from the game without a ground up re-design now. It's rough for beginners and very casual games, but if SFG designed the game for a certain type of audience (those of us who still play it even with the momentum mechanic), then they probably made a choice to only try to grow it with those players.
  7. Game plan cards

    Played a few more games at a small tournament, along with our local meta all trying it out for the first time. In general pretty much EVERYONE loved it more than the initiative roll, even though we agreed that some cards could be tweaked to be better or worse. But overall, for the same reason you mentioned, the Game Plan Deck is a much needed improvement to the initiative system, and improves the game!
  8. Game Plan deck discussion

    Finally got to play the Game Plans. Not bad. I like it a LOT more than rolling a dice, and in the 4 turns we played, we each actually had the right cards at the right time for the MP we gained. I ended up with both +7 cards, but the turn I used it, I actually tied my friend who had a +6 card and 1 more MP than me, so we rolled off. Ultimately: Pros: - less randomness with the die roll - players feel like they're actually choosing the effect they want, based on the MP difference Cons: - Both of us really feel that the effects/benefits/cons on the cards did not reflect well the +initiative values. I mean, why are some +7/+6 cards "better" than some of the +1/+3 cards? It's a good idea, but it does need work, mainly on the effects side, and the initiative value vs INF value.
  9. Darn SJW's *shakes fist*

    Well, you're definitely not a "man" either.

    Wow, somehow the fact that all of them are women completely slipped my mind! Amazing. Kudos to you SFG!
  11. Wrecker, anyone use him much

    Wrecker is ALWAYS in my Hammer list. I love that guy!

    Haha, I'm not sure I helped, but it's great to see you grow from "I can't win any games" to "I have a positive W-L at a big Nationals event"! Congrats again!
  13. Nyk's Adventures

    Congrats Nyk! Great report and loved reading your awesome experience at the Nationals!
  14. Wrecker, anyone use him much

    Apparently a bunch of us can't do math He asked "who's the last 6 in your 10" and I just replied without thinking about whether it added to 10 or not. With 2 more, I'd usually take Brick and Mist. Sometimes Chisel and Mist.
  15. Wrecker, anyone use him much

    Honour, Hammer, Harmony, Flint, Mallet, Tower. I don't use Brick that often anymore.
