Having recently returned from BK-Faux (A decently sized event in New York City) with my metaphorical tail between my legs I've resolved to become a more competitive player of Malifaux. I've made the rounds through my LGS and found 4 or 5 players that like the idea of being more competitive as well, so we have decided to help each other get there.
I've played Neverborn since 1.5 and, although I was very interested in foraying into Arcanists, have decided to stick with my favored faction of lovely ladies and terrifying monsters as I figure out if I have what it takes to go the distance!
What do you think makes someone a more competitive player? What tips do you have for someone looking to turn their game up to 11 (from, admittedly, about 4)?
