Tournament report - Hub Ball 3 (16-man Scottish event)

Recommended Posts


Roster: VRage, Blackheart, Strongbox, Mist, Decimate, Harry, Benny, Snakeskin, Gutter, Hemlocke. 

Results: Tapper Brewers (12-1 win), Farris Blacksmiths (12-4 loss), Thresher Farmers (12-4 win), Fillet Butchers (12-8 win). Finished 4th/16. 

Thoughts: I played Blackheart, Strongbox, Mist, Decimate in all four games. They provided me with a “core four” that I could build a team around and used the last as flex slots for whatever else I felt I needed a boost in, so it was between Harry/Benny and Snakers/Gutter. Unfortunately, Gutter was the most disappointing overall. I just don’t feel she’s warranted without VRage set up. With him she’s amazing and worth concentrating on; without him she’s barely worth giving influence to due to her lack of manoeuvrability and combo-results on her playbook. Snakers was a close second on the disappointment scale. I took her twice and found that I didn’t have enough inf to give her to let her do much. Best she did was threaten to steal the ball back but by that point I already had Decimate/Mist/Blackheart threaten a goal run. I reckon I’ll swap her out for Minx, as she can do much the same but more efficiently (Furious, momentous damage, free Snare), survives better without activation overall, suits hit-and-run playstyle a bit better and is just damn good fun to use. 
VRage is nice to have on the roster and I do like using him but I find Blackheart a better captain due to being able to get himself out of trouble very easily. VRage is easier to control and I prefer being reactive rather than trying to figure out how to control my opponents team. 

Overall, looking forward to playing them again at the next event!
