Yesterday I played my second game with falconers against my friend Gabrile Rosaure, who is currently 2nd ranked fish player in the US. Going in to this game I knew it would be a hard and was not feeling very confident. I won the role off and drafted straight falconers figuring I needed as many harriers I could muster to spread. Giving me options and making it hard for fish to just slip out. Last pick came to Vet Herarn or Ikaros. Last light is amazing but I thought I would need some one fast who could get the ball away form my goal. He drafted Shark, Tenticles, Hag, Jack, Greyscales, vet Sakana
Shark kicks off. Minerva scoops up the ball kicks to devana dodges in to shark. Attacks twice doing KD and harrier. I dont think to measure Hag who has enough room to shadow like sprint to get to Minerva doing a momentus fisherman real disengaging Shark, Then puts up decoy. I move Rundaas up to try and cut off potential "ecsape routs" for shark. This point he pulls Shark trigger (cause you cant stop shark) Pays to clear dose shark thing scores. Kick the ball out lands on Ikaros. Mataagi walks up hotshots and dose momentus harrier then misses snapshot. Jack walks up bringing the squid. Squid blinds Devana. She then walks to shark uses hack back and starts to work on shark. I miss the KD and shark counters to double dodges out. Death from above attack pushes shark back in now and now engaged by Rundaas as well. Final attacks leave shark on 9hp. Vet Sakana, and greyscales run up the pitch. Ikaros kicks the ball to Mataagi.
Second turn i play go for the knees he plays back in the game. I go first. Rundaas shadow likes kills shark. And walk to annoy Geryscales who activates next attacks to disengag walks and fails to get the ball of 5/0 mataagi in cover. Minvera hits hag and drops a 2nd harrier. Tenticals misses a bonus time on Devana. I move up Frelsi to engage Hag. My goal here was to try and force Hag away so she could not mess up my setups with her shenanigans. This is where I forget the order of activations but Jack and Sakana come to Devana. Jack pushes Devana away and heroics breaking up the scrum trying to gain center control . Mataagi hotshots Greyscales to drop a harrier onto Jack. And passes the ball up the pitch to Rundaas who has a open goal run. Divana walk back to Jack, call the bird and removes jack from the table.
4-4 Tied game
In to turn 3 I play keep the ball moving for extra kick dice(that I forget about and miss a pass) he uses offside trap(really messed up my plans). I start with Rundaas with the goal being to risky I decide to go a different path. I shadow like and fail a pass the ball to Ikaros but was able to snap to him.Than charge in to vet Sakana hitting him with dirty knives. Tenticals Blinds Devana. I go with Menirva KD and eye spy Hag. Shark grabs the ball off Ikaros and passes it to Greyscales. Pops legendary hitting my entire team besides Menirva. Making Devana -6/-6 move...... yea so that's a thing.... she was in range fo a 2inch charge into Sakana who was engaged by the bird and Rundaas he declared counter. I Wrap (thanks to the dirty knives)hitting Kd and 3 damage. Now at 2/1 Devana makes short work of him. Next activations are just moving players burning activation till Greyscales scores. I kick the ball out putting it right within walking distance of Mataagi. He grabs the ball hotshots Shark for 1 and bleed and hits snap fire.
Turn 4 and last turn. I play Full back he plays wingbacks. I go first again. Mataagi charges a fresh icy spounged Sakana. He counters. I do 2dmg harrier putting him to 6. He only get one hit on the counter. Next 2 attacks do mom3 killing Vet Sakana again. With the last inf I boot the ball as far down the pitch as I can. In fear of losing shark again he get him to safety and gathers the ball at the same time. Passes to Jack who dodges back. Rundaas is just barely in range to shadow like sprint to Jack. First attack gets the momentus takle second attack does 2 push dodge that gets me to tap in range. 3 dice tap in for the win????? Nails it Falconers win 12-8
