  1. As a non-sheet filler I think I would suggest just going to the captains after the pairing ends and ask for the masters
  2. Its actually pretty simple. It blocks AP generation and not extra actions. Your list would include Melee Master, Reckless, Combat Expert and probably some more which is big. Thats why its written like this
  3. WHY YOU TAKE AWAY NEW TOYS?
  4. That would be pretty easy for the opponent to read
  5. So if a model that Makes No Sense makes no sense does it make sense because its a Gremlin?
  6. So I don`t know why this guy lost Mercenary as they seemed really cool in theory and with the changes they don`t break the system as they used to
  7. So like with the Quellers I think the cuddles bring the models inline without blocking their niches. I still think it should be 1 card on kill though...
  8. The clarification on the Surpression Markers is good but I think it can be moved to an ability in the front to save space if needed. The range decrease and Ml6 -> Ml5 are welcome cuddles that make this model a bit less versatile but still most likely worth the SS!
  9. Does anyone consider placing Banasuva from half the map into CC problematic considering its after succeding and from a henchman? I kind of do
  10. "Kaeris (grab and drop, reservoir) Carlos or Arcane Emissary Myranda with energies 3 mages or 2 gunsmiths Willie Raptor Malifaux Child Was close to winning 1 more with US team (but lost on 2 severe from stiched on my master) and was most likely to loose with other US team if we played one more turn. But that was the one where everything relied on single initiative flip (run away with Kaeris). Bad things happen in Malifaux."
  11. I know you already got your answers at Wyrd Place but the pairing system meant we could put her in Set Up/LYM/DtG each game. Our player doesn`t like Sandeep so he had backup Raspi but ultimately had 5 games with Kaeris and had 3 wins and 2 draws.
  12. 1) I think Team US used it to swap between Tara and Nellie (Hope I didn`t give up your secret strats :D) 2) The team that won should have an advantage but currently the flip didn`t really matter as there was no way the enemies could force your comfort pick away. 3) The scoring system benefited winning 10:9 or losing 9:10 because the differential didn`t matter at all and the VP scored was also there. 4) We played Kaeris 5x times and he usually went to Headhunter/Collect the Bounty and we picked the table with Set Up, LYM or DtG most of the time. One more thing. Even though I was critical towards the matching system I would like to very strongly state that was my best Malifaux weekend ever and I had a blast and I learned a lot. The venue was amazing. The players were amazing and Mike did an awesome job! Two things I`d consider: In most sports when 2 teams have a similar W/L ratio and played each other their head-to-head is a determining factor instead of total goals. Block playing Sandeep and Hamelin 5 games in a row
  13. When it comes to teams coming from afar I think availability and finances are the crucial factor. Not everyone can afford to fly for the weekend as everybody has family, jobs, etc. As for your "super team" - I couldn`t care less. You were great sports and if you want to be the champion you have to win against the best The whole idea of debating if you were one or not is pretty pointless.
  14. Game 3: Northern Moose Cavalry I was paired to another McMourning, Robert who was another great player and probably the hardest game this tournament. This pool had 4x Quarter strategies Reconnoiter - Corner Frame for Murder, Claim Jump Show of Force Last Stand Accusation I had: Nellie, Embedded, Misleading Headlines, Delegation, 5SS Taelor, Numb to the World, A Debt to the Guild Francisco, Hermanos De Armas, Wade In 3x Guild Hounds 2x Trapper Printing Press Rober had McMourning, Moonlighning, Plastic Surgery Nurse Sebastian, Those Are Not Ours, some other upgrade Rafkin, Unnerving Aura Guild Autopsy Goryo Rotten Belle Madame Sybelle with Bleeding Tongue I had Claim Jump and Show of Force. He had FFM (Rafkin) and SoF. Basically the game was lost for me after McMourning went into a killing spree but Robert picked the absolutely worst schemes he could. I had 4 upgrades to his 3 so I blocked his SoF and I didn`t Touch Rafkin the whole game because I was so AP-starved. I managed to squeeze out 2 Strategy points and 1 Claim Jump before 3 Constructs blocked everything. Turn 5 when fFrancisco was out of the 6" SoF bubble he managed to Lure me out of I propaganda`d Sebastian for Slow and then Taelor used Debt and killed him as he had no stones. Zipp won with Leveticus Dreamer lost with Sandeep Kaeris won with Zipp Nicoedm won with Shenlong I won with McMourning and the score was 4-0-1 versus the 2d best as it turned out! All this has lead to day 2 where we played: Game 4: Trump Card So the American`s came to the ITC internet-bragging about how good they are. I was kind of worried they would be A-holes but all 5 of them turned out to be a great sports. I played Alex Schmid`s Somer and my trappers yet again failed me not hitting the Slop Hauler in 4 focused shots Squatters Rights Claim Jump Eliminate The Leadership Frame for Murder Search The Ruins Leave Your Mark I had: Nellie, Embedded, Misleading Headlines, Delegation, 5SS Phiona, Transparency 4x Guild Hounds 2x Trapper Field Reporter, Brutal Effigy Printing Press Alex had: Somer, Do Over, Family Tree Burt, Dirty Cheater Merris Fingers Lightning Bug Skeeter 3x Bayou Gremlin Slop Hauler I had Search The Ruins and FFM (Phiona). Alex had Search and FFM (Slop Hauler) So I got basically demolished. Alex didn`t really make any mistakes and he also had some flip help. I managed to get one from FFM but Fingers basically disabled all my scheme possibilities. I discussed the game with Alex afterwards and that was definitely Top World Somer play and game understanding. I hope next year we can get a rematch on more even terms. Kaeris tied Collodi Pandora lost to Nellie (T1 Pandora dies to Tavish melee attack) Zipp lost to Sandeep Nicodem lost to Hamelin 0-1-4 Game 5 Krakówball, the other polish team I played their Captain Ozzy in: Stake a Claim - corner Claim Jump Dig Their Graves A Quick Murder Recover Evidence Accusation I had a very bad crew: Nellie, 3x Hounds, Anna with Debt Tavish with Debt Peacekeeper with Numb Press Ozzy had: Lilith Trapper 2x Changeling 4x Corrupted Hounds Graves, Thousand Faces Terror Tot Basically I clusterf**** myself T1. Turn 2 Ozzy had an amazing hand and won initiative. Graves changed Thousand Faces for Obsididan Talons. I should have attacked with Tavish but I wanted the fast. Ozzy charge, Hit with a 13 with a stone for Mask. Used a RJ for damage. Attacked again and did moderate 5. I then killed Lilith. Dogs were eating dogs but he had a free flank to place Claim Markers. We ended up 6:3. Ozzy did 2 from Strategy. 2 from Recover Evidence and 2 from Dig Their Graves I had 2 from Dig Their Graves and 1 from Claim Jump Zipp won vs Wong Lilith won vs Leveticus Kaeris won vs McCabe Nicodem lost vs Sandeep 3:0:2 and Third place, with a 1 game difference with the second place! Post game thoughts: Do not listen to the US guys on the internet. You`ll get a wrong feeling about them. Very cool people, all 10 of them! Even though we on and lost once both players were ace. We could make fun at each other during the game and everybody was chilled. I had to call the Referees 2 times. Both times it was due to terrain-strategy marker placement so I had no rule disputes. I think the Top US Team is probably a whole Tier higher than the rest of the teams. I don`t know about the UK teams because we didn`t play so YMMV. But I think we showed up quite big We`re all pretty happy with the result as we played the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 9th place teams so our path wasn`t really easy to get where we got. Riccardo, our long lost italian cousin was a blast to play with and maybe we`ll make him an honorary Polandball citizen next year!
  15. So as a member of team Polandball we just returned from the ITC. We left friday evening and landed around 10 PM in Manchester. We went to the Hotel and it turned out they misread our reservation so they gave us a 5 man room for 4 people. The team we played was: Lukasz Bober - Gremlins (Zipp) Riccardo Neri - Resurrectionists (Reva and Nico) Piotr Miazga - Arcanists (Kaeris) Maciej Pasek - Neverborn (Lilith, Pandora, Dreamer) Me - Guild (Nellie) So we went to Element Games in Stockport the next morning and we saw the NERD HEAVEN. The biggest miniature store I ever saw. The tables were ready. We met the second polish team - Krakowball and we registered. The first pairing would make us play each other but Mike reshuffled so we met... Game 1: Team Vikings! I played Rasmus who played Resser McMourning in Squatters Rights on Close Deployment Squatters rights Claim jump Eliminate The Leadership Recover Evidence Tail`em Rasmus had: McMourning, Decaying Aura, Moonlightning, Plastic Surgery Sebastian, Those Are not Ours Rotten Belle Rotten Belle Nurse Chihuahua Rafkin Chiaki Canine Remains Canine Remains I had: Nellie, Guild Funds, Misleading Headlines, Delegation, 7SS Taelor, Numb to the World, A Debt to the Guild Francisco, Hermanos De Armas, Wade In Brutal Effigy Field Reporter Watcher Austringer Printing Press I took Eliminate the Leadership and Claim Jump. Rasmus took Tail`em and Claim Jump Since it was Close deployment and he had 2 Belles I deployed 19" from his deployment. I had a pretty bad hand T1 so I passed like 4-5 activations. Then I started advancing. Nellie managed to push his Belle into open ground and a Fast Francisco used El Mayur and Cover Me on Taelor, then charged the Belle and RJ killed her with his first attack. Meanwhile a watcher on high ground advanced towards the middle, as did Rasmus`s crew. Turn 2 Rasmus tried to Lure Taelor but she was Wp 9 from El Mayor so he failed. I passed some activations. One dog managed to claim a squatters marker and so did Rafkin with the second and the Belle claimed hers last turn. The watcher reclaimed his marker and Taelor was blocking half his crew because she had Numb so he couldn`t paralyze her or poison her. He started placing a lot of Markers. Taelor killed a dog but after that Sebastian RJ a summon (Rasmus has 2 cards left). McMourning had to walk towards the Squat Marker to give himself the Strategy so he walked, put a scheme marker and claimed a Squatters. Francisco charged him with Fast and dealt 7 damage after prevents. Nellie then hit McMourning with Propaganda 3 times and he was left on 4 Wds after Francisco`s Angry Mob attacks. He also had 1 stone and slow. I declared ETL. I scored CJ from Evidence and he got the Strategy, so it was 3:1 Turn 3 We flipped for Initiative. I got a 2. he got a 4. I reflipped for a 4. We both reflipped and he got a 4 and I got a nice. He stoned and got a 6. I activated Nellie. Fast on Francisco. Propaganda on McMourning. I hit for 1 damage. Angry Mob Kills McMourning. Rafkin kills my watcher. Sebastian summons a second dog. Taelor kills a dog. Reporter flips a marker. I can get to stop him from getting Strategy. His Belle does T 7:2 Turn 4 I was killing his stuff. He used Tail`em on Nellie after I had any options left. We both Scored CJ and Strategy, 9:5 Turn 5, since the time was running out I told him I`ll kill the 1 Wd Belle to stop Tail`em and I won`t be able to stop him from anything else so we decided its his CJ and Strategy vs my Strategy and its a 10:7 The team won all 5 games so we stayed at table 1 to play: Game 2: Drunk History I had an Extraction game with Nellie versus Somer (Andrew Weakland) The pool was: Extraction on Standard Claim Jump Accusation Frame Show of Force Search The Ruins He had: Somer with Family Try and Can O`Beans (7SS) 2x Skeeter 4x Bayou Gremlin 3x Stuffed Piglet Pigapult Trixie, Dirty Cheater Slop Hauler I hadL Nellie, Embedded, Misleading Headlines, Delegation Strongarm Suit, A Debt to the Guild Phiona, Transparency 4x Guild Hounds 2x Freikorps Trapper Printing Press I picked Show of Force and FFM (Strongarm). He had FFM Trixie and CJ Turn 1 I failed 2 trapper shots (which turned out to be a tradition). He summoned 3 Gremlins. I was going around to be within 25" of the pigapult. The pigapult catapulted 3 Gremlins into my line. Turn 2 I won and my trapper was about the shoot the only Gremlin on the flank but it Two Carded a 13 again. He moved a Gremlin and placed a Scheme. I passed. Trixie went reckless and gremlin Lured Strongarm. Nellie Gave Strongarm fast and killed a skeeter so he can`t Can O Bean me. Then it was dog versus Gremlin hell. 1 AP charges versus Reckless. The Green numbers were dwindling. Strongarm killed one. 2 dogs were wounded as well as 3 gremlins. I scored SoF and Extraction. He scored CJ and Extraction. His Pigapult shot 3 times into my stuff and hit once and did 3 damage to a dog. Second Trapper hit a Gremlin for 5. Somer didn`t do anything spectacular. 2:2 Turn 3 He activated Trixie and pushed Phiona with slow with Trixie. Trapper shot Trixie for 4 which was prevented to 3. Pigapult shot 3 times into combat and did 3 damage on strongarm but no blasts. Phiona charged and killed a Gremlin. Somer shot Phiona bad. Another Gremlin was killed. Second Trapper shot Trixie and did 6 and she died giving FFM. One gremlin went drunk and reckless. I score SoF. I manage to win the strategy marker but we both score 4-6 Turn 4 Trapper still can`t shut the Gremlin. Somer kills Phiona from blasts. Pigapult kills some dogs. Press block Slop Hauler. Strongarm kills another Gremlin. Second Trapper hits Somer for 5. Somer is the only model near Extraction and Strongarm is still alive so its 6:6 Turn 5 Gremlin places another marker. I kill Somer and bring Slop Hauler to 1 Wds. 7:7 So since I don`t have a lot of experience with playing Somer this was a weird game. I felt being beaten turn 2 and 3 but suddenly all the Gremlisn dissapeared and I started controlling the mid field and denied Extraction twice! I should defnitely pick the FFM on Phiona or kill the pesky 2 Wd Gremlin with the Trapper (he loved to Bayou Two Card those 13s) and it would be a pretty decent win! Kaeris tied Collodi after a very tough game Zipp won with Rasputina after another tough one (only round without playijng Sandeep, thank you Drunk History!) Reva won with Shenlong I tied and Pandora lost to Arash`s Leveticus. 2-2-1 win over the American`s! We`re still at the top! TBC.....
