  1. They are predetermined but the opposing team doesn't know about them until they are shown during pairings. The pairing starts anew for each table. So if Team A picks Hamelin, Team B pick Sandeep and Collodi and Hamelin wants to play against Collodi Sandeep goes back to the pool.
  2. Its actually the opposite. Last year you had Team A picks two, Team B picks one, Team A decided which one they want to play. The biggest difference is that in our system you don`t control all matchups and in last years ITCs you controlled all of them (both us and team Trump Card used that extensively). You might use Ramos if the pool favors him. I`d even go further and declare all masters pre-pairings. This way if you have Ramos and they have a counter you can bait him out.
  3. At the Polish Team Championship we had a system where you preselected masters per round. Team A selected 1 master Team B selected 2 masters Team A picked which one of the masters from the pair they wanted to play against. So Team A sends out Hamelin Team B sebds out Collodi and Sandeep Team A decides if Hamelin plays vs Sandeep or Collodi
  4. But you have no options to block any unwanted matchup. Its basically like playing a single tournament with slightly favorable scheme pools
  5. The issue is not the team to team pairing but the player to player pairing. You have 0 info on the opponent, their faction/master/crew so the strategy element is minimized... You can't sacrifice a player to force better pairings, you can't counter the enemy master etc.
  6. Have to say, the total lack of strategical element in the pairings is very dissapointing. Its even worse than last year :/

    Faction rankings?

    TBH I think figuring your own stuff out is a lot more rewarding (even if your scores are worse)

    Gremlins and GG18 - A new hope?!? (current state)

    I also wanted to point out that Gremlin players that think the combo is too good bashing Gremlin players that play it is very Gremlinlike

    To be perfectly clear - I think most people complaining about the combo are Gremlin players The combo doesn't look exploitish to me TBH

    Good Old Rider

    I think the only use for Pale Rider is McCabe. His damage is plain bad, his durability is low til around turn 3

    Zipp wins UK Masters gg2018

    He has Df5, Armor, Squeel and a place out of combat. Edit: if Wong didn`t give Magical, I believe he`d be REALLY bad

    It doesn`t extend the range and Sonnia doesn`t have a lot of ways to get Burning off unless she brings her crew which isn`t super effective.

    Once per activation means you can do it once per each activation. So Loco can push by placing a marker (Loco`s activation) then Grimwell can push by placing a marker (Grimwells activation)

    Of course but this kind of can happen to everything

    I think while I can agree with some posts, its kind of biased. I`ll start by saying that in comparing LLC vs DC, LLC wins. But DC has 2 advantages. There`s a lot of models with Armor and DC. LLC and Armor don`t stack. Second of all - LLC is non-master. DC is a master upgrade. Now I know in the case of Francois it doesn`t change anything but if we`re comparing upgrades lets do it in a general way. Second of all, I think both Francisco and Francois aren`t well designed models. But they have a totally different role. Francois IMHO is a trade piece with no support value. You pick an enemy model and unless your hand is crap evaporate him from the board and probably lose Francois afterwards. with possible 4 AP from Skeeter if you`re in charge range you can quite easily kill most henchmen and enforcers. Francisco is badly designed because some of the masters have pretty bad defense with no real defensive triggers which means for Sonnia and Justice he`s usually taken not really for his offensive prowess, but for El Mayor. I honestly think if there`s a bigger card rework, Sonnia should get Df5, Justice Df6 and El Mayor can be replaced with something other than a stat boost. Currently you don`t really want to go in because he`s quite expensive (9-10SS), doesn`t have the trade posibility unless in a great situation and you`re risking losing the master buff. As for delivering him - Investigator allows a 3" push. Which means that you need to spam markers in order to get him into position. This is in no way the same as a Skeeter.
