Re: The Big V 2017 - plus PLAYERS PACK

I like everything else, just not so keen on the scoring. It's not a big issue but I don't feel that two draws should be worth the same as a win. You're already being rewarded for not losing, just not as much as half a win.

Why? Is two draws really worth a win?

Re: ATC 2018 - Initial Musings

Assuming you mean March 24th-25th, but regardless April is my preference. Not sure if school hols makes it easier or harder for travelers.

Suggest if you can get the numbers that Hutchie might work with you on getting something for ATC.

Re: Blue Dragon Cup 2

Squig Ball: at the start of a turn when the squig ball is on the ground, it bounces D3 squares in a random direction. If it bounces into a player they must try and catch it. If it bounces off the pitch, it gets thrown in normally. -1 to catching a bouncing squig ball. Question on this - if the ball...

Re: Blue Dragon Cup 2

Did the last tournament get good NAF signup? Are you expecting a mostly NAF crowd for this one?

Looks like there were quite a few regulars at the last event so I guess the odds of a non-NAF are lower.

Nope. Maybe there's something inherently suspicious about having a Victorian postcode?

Re: Can having a well-developed team be a detriment to learn

I don't know if I would go as far as to say it stunts learning (though having that guy on your team who's a total crutch isn't uncommon (edit: damn you Olaf!)), but it certainly reduces the risk profile to the point where action economy and order become much less important. In other words yes, it ca...

Re: ATC 2018 - Initial Musings

Lol, of all the power gamers in all the places I've posted this... it was you! :P What can I say, the concept is great but I know team captains like boggy and dazed ( ;) )are going to wait until their opponents are at a table with a team before they allocate the who to who, and that takes some of t...

Re: ATC 2018 - Initial Musings

**NOTE** Races only will be matched in this way. It is then possible for the Captain/ Coaches to change which race each individual coach wishes to take. This changing of coach is NOT mandatory, just an option. Question on the ordering of this - Captains do their dice off and allocate teams against ...

Re: Blue Dragon Cup 2

Just one last question...

Is this a tournament expecting rookies, new players, and general fun? Or is this full metal arsehole? Doubles access makes for seriously abusive rosters, so if I do come just wondering what sort of vibe you're hoping for.

Re: Blue Dragon Cup 2

I'm keen but the Sunday is a bit of a bind. Will see what I can manage.

How do you randomly determine a time during the round for the bomb ball to explode?
