  13. Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. Myself and another individual are very adamant that Canada should be represented at this year's WTC in Belgium. Both of us are fully committed to going, however we require one more individual to join the team. If you feel that this person might be you and are willing to commit the time and resources (re: $$$) into joining us on this adventure, please send me a PM and we can discuss the matter. Speaking from personal experience, traveling to compete internationally in events such as this is the epitome of table top gaming and an experience you will never forget. So come on Canada!!! Who's gonna step up to the challenge??

  18. Canada Qualifier Overview Last weekend held the Canadian Qualifier (GROTSCUP) for the Guild Ball World Finals to be help later this year in England. I was looking forward to this qualifier both as a nice holiday from work and a chance to win a free trip. We knew there were going to be some skilled out-of-towners come in and try to steal the day so I was expecting some stiff competition. I had been tinkering with an Esters led Brewers team where I went into a previous sanctioned event just looking to try a new gimmicky captain and came out of it with a win and a new respect for the big lady. The team I brought to the qualifier was the following: Esters Scum Hooper Friday Spigot Mash A+G Gutter I played the same 6 players all 5 games leaving gutter and mash on the bench. A+G gave me a valuable extra activation and singled out in a brewers lineup is pretty devastating. Game 1: Blaine D and his Tapper led Brewers (spigot, friday, hooper, stave) I lost the roll to go first and he elected to receive. Esters kicks off and the game gets underway. Early game sees Esters catapult forwards into tapper along with my friday, The hoopers face off against one another on the right hand side, scum/greede are on goal duty. I win the roll off on the second turn and my friday starts off with a goal. He elects to send his goal kick away as a bad scatter could lead to an easy spigot goal for me. He send spigot into friday and start doing damage. Avarisse, hooper, and esters combine to takedown his hooper. He returns the favour and takes out friday. I get some damage on tapper with spigot. Late game has Esters finish off Tapper. He recognizes he’s behind so he gets the ball with spigot and waits an activation too long which leads to my spigot stripping the ball and kicking out to friday way on the left flank (she had come on the board halfway up with sideline repairs). She pots the winning goal. 12-2 Esters. Interesting note: no one had Don’t Touch the Hair. Game 2: Shaun W. and Ox led Butchers (Shank, Gutter, Tenderizer, Brisket) I lose the roll for kickoff. Esters kicks off again. I get esters into shank who dies at the beginning of the 2nd turn. Tenderizer buries the ball right by his goal. Ox and gutter die during the second turn thanks to an Esters legendary. 3rd turn has tenderizer bite the dust and friday miss a 3 dice goal shot. Shank dies again on the fourth turn by an opportunistic friday. Princess meanwhile has worked up the flank with the ball and manages to score! Game is over when gutter gets taken down again. 12-4 Game 3: Leif and Ox led Butchers (Shank, Tenderizer, Boiler, Brisket) I lose the roll for kickoff and Esters gives it a boot. Leif plays defensively, cautious not to give me any charges with esters. I get 2 tooled up AoEs into shank, tenderizer, and the dog. My subsequent friday activation gets dirty knives onto the dog who dies of conditions in the second turn maintenance. I lose the roll off and he sends a loaded ox + legendary into friday who uses don’t touch the hair to get away. I send esters into ox and bring his health way down, he responds with boiler into esters who does a tonne of damage. Hooper finishes off ox. Friday heals and between her and and spigot take out shank not before shank and brisket finish off esters. Tenderizer having already taken 6 damage from AoEs and burning gets taken out by spigot hooper and friday. He had been a thorn in my side using counter charges to proc gluttonous mass and crowd esters out. The final turns I manage to pickup shank again with hooper and tenderizer with friday. 12-2 Esters Game 4: Nate and Obulus led Morticians (Cossett, Ghast, Graves, Bonesaw) *Note he was using borrowed models and didn’t have mist to replace bonesaw I lose the roll and kickoff with Esters. He scores a goal with bonesaw and knee sliders away but still in range of a Empowered Voice (+2 mov) Friday. Spigot takes the goal kick, tools up Esters and passes her the ball. Esters passes the ball the Friday and dodges 4” towards Cossett, charges cossett (who plays don’t touch the hair) and does 5 damage. Esters then drops a fireballs which manages to hit dirge, cossett, and Silence. Friday shadow likes forward, charges bonesaw and does a mp push so she can put up her heroic and score the goal (to which she was successful). The resulting goal kick doesn’t scatter well and ends up just behind bonesaw. He is holding a bit of a MP advantage but I win the roll off. Friday generates a couple of MP off bonesaw and scores another goal in the first activation of the second turn. He thinks the game is pretty well over and tries to engineer another goal with obulus which lacks range. Esters legendaries and takes out cossett and dirge for the win. 12-4 Esters. Game 5: Tyler and Blackheart led Union (Fangtooth, Rage, Mist, Gutter) I lose the roll and kickoff with esters. Scatters straight to gutter, awful kick. He decides to take a serious board presence and runs fangooth into the middle of the board. He passes the ball a bit and misses 2 passes. A tooled up Esters gives friday the mov buff and charges into fangtooth and does a bunch of damage and knocks him down. Friday does a bunch more damage with mp 2 dmg a few times. She calls the cat over to get some crowdout help. I win the roll off and esters starts by legendary for damage on friday, herself and hooper. She kills fang tooth and walks up and knocks rage down. Blackhearts puts up the aura and does a bunch of damage to friday. Spigot, hooper, and friday take out black heart. Mist is waiting for an opportunity to score as he had to chase down an errant pass, I spent a bunch of mp healing dmg and he’s ahead in the race so mist moves into a position to dodge off hooper a couple times and score. However I win the roll off and see a cheeky play. Spigot starts by charging mist and using Ball’s Gone! to give the ball to Esters who is within striking range of the goal. He then puts a couple points of damage on Mist. Esters gives herself +1 DMG and takes out a KD Rage, walks up and scores. 6 points in one activation for Esters, unreal. The goal kick gets sent out to gutter who makes a successful pass to mist who is engaged by 3 people and he dodges out 4”. Hooper in the meantime gets charged by a sideline repaired and miraculously recovered fangtooth. Hooper KD fangtooth then hits Mist for a few points of damage. Friday hops in and does a couple more points of dmg. He wins the initiative and scores a goal with mist. At this point, I need 2 pts to win and Esters is within charge range of blackheart. I almost get ahead of myself, but remember to ask the health on Mist. He’s sitting on one point right near Friday. I load Friday up and charge her in needing one 5. Tyler plays his last plot card “Don’t Touch the Hair” so I have to hit one 5 on 9 dice to pull it off. Which I do. **We discussed after the game, he had forgotten about the card. First time in all 5 games he got it and we normally don’t play with it as a group (it’s a stupid card)** With that I went 5-0 and won the Canadian Qualifier!! I’m really happy with Esters and I think a lot of people underestimate her power. She can do a tonne of damage and while Commanding Aura is powerful the movement bonus is nearly as powerful on it’s own. Gluttonous Mass is a problem to get around. Finally, her AoE’s ensure that there is always something to do in her activation. Time to donkey around for a bit and try some other things. I really want to give Ballista a shot (pun intended) as I don’t believe he’s bad as people think he is. Also want to give the Attrishermen a go as it is effectively Brewers with better goal scoring. Look forward to meeting a bunch of you in England this fall at Steamiecon and testing my mettle in the World Finals!!
