The Goal They'll Never See Coming

Recommended Posts

To the tune of Vitriol crying tears of impotence from the gaping wound she tore in her own face to allow her mind to explode.

 

The Turn 1 Snow goal

Range: 20-24"

Theoretical chance of success: ~9% (6,707,183,616/78,364,164,096)

True chance of success: −273.15°C

 

Requirements:

Friendly team receives

Snow with 3 inf

Skatha with 3+ inf

A 3/6 kick squaddie with 1+ inf

No enemy counter charge equivalent

Pigs to fly

 

The Play

Deploy Snow centrally on the 10" line.

Collect the ball with a 3/6 kick squaddie and pass to Skatha, bank 1 momentum (189/216 chance of success).

Activate Skatha, forget all about Nature's Chill (Snow doesn't need it anyway). Snowball pass to Snow and dodge Snow 4" (1216/1296 chance of success), jog Skatha, pass the ball to Snow and dodge Snow 4" (1216/1296 chance of success). Snow is now at midline. The enemy will be so stunned at the beauty of what is occurring they will do nothing to interrupt.

Activate Snow.

Kick the ball, placing the marker 0.59" ahead, meaning that a distance roll of 6 will enable Snow to Ooh Ball 5" and still snap the ball.

This is where the maths gets tricky. To simplify, lets assume Snow fails the kick and does not get to reroll. We need the ball to bounce more or less directly toward goal, lets say 2 results meet this requirement (2/6 chance of success). We then need a result of 2 or more (5/6 chance of success), as unless we move Snow in a perfectly straight line 20" will not be enough to get in goal range, and Snow must move directly toward the ball marker (eat a @*&£ steamforged).

Following the stunning success of this move, sprint Snow 7" into range for that sweet sweet tap in. Given placement limitations, we can fairly assume Snow will be engaged and/or facing an intercept, so lets assume 1 die TN4 (3/6). 

Back of the net.

In theory, Snow can easily free himself from engagement this way (kick the ball, oh ball, pick up the ball, do whatever you like with 2 inf), but in practice he is rarely engaged at the beginning of his activation. He is either disengaged, or he sits on the TO bench :)

You can do this with Zarola, Fahad & Skatha and your opponent can't react :)

Yeah, I have done that goal but with Theron instead of Skatha's, mostly to do midnight offering for free and back up momentum with sun strike. It's a fun way to get a first turn goal.
