  1. But you have no options to block any unwanted matchup. Its basically like playing a single tournament with slightly favorable scheme pools
  2. 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.
  3. Have to say, the total lack of strategical element in the pairings is very dissapointing. Its even worse than last year :/
  4. Faction rankings?

    TBH I think figuring your own stuff out is a lot more rewarding (even if your scores are worse)
  5. 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
  6. Gremlins and GG18 - A new hope?!? (current state)

    To be perfectly clear - I think most people complaining about the combo are Gremlin players The combo doesn't look exploitish to me TBH
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  13. Gremlins and GG18 - A new hope?!? (current state)

    I`m really happy to hear people like you and people like me can finally come to an agreement I totally agree about Ulix. I played versus Wrastlers and they seem pretty decent! I personally think Pigapult should just work a lot better independently and be less oppressive for the opponent. Right now its either a bad experience (2SS Piglets) or overcosted (3SS Piglets)
  14. Nellie is not dead

    How did you feel tabling a fluff list :P?
  15. Nellie is not dead

    Hes still worth it with Wong.
  16. Big Brain Brin - A hidden gem?

    HtK is better than heal but Swinecursed have Df6 also. Heal is better than HtW most of the time. Every 7SS model that isn`t designed to be a tank requires discretion in use or it will get wiped off the board. I`m done
  17. Big Brain Brin - A hidden gem?

    I`m sorry but I disagree. I mean I agree Primordial and Doppel are probably undercosted by 1 (but Primordial plays with what: Lilith and Titania mostly I think) but Swinecursed are absolutely stupid, when combined with Ooh Glowwy and pretty good without it. "They die easily" - thats not really true. Death Marshal Recruiters that I think are tough enforcers have HtW instead of heal and 1 more Wp. So I assume they are squishy? If you compare them to Punk Zombies they don`t have HtK but have Df6 and a (0) action heal. December Acolytes? Df5 instead of 6 and 1 more Wd. Convict Gunslingers? 1 more Wds and Df4 with Bulletproof. Also, its been a month. We really can end the Gremlin Errata discussion and making every topic about how unfair life is to Gremlins I think.

    I mean Loco only needs it because Box change. Except people didn`t take it just for the dmg buff. They took it for 2 turns of damage buff and then exploding in the middle of the enemy crew. And they only took it with 1 master. And they still take it with 1 master. If the buff was non-master he`d probably end up somewhere alongside Bayou Gators. Who recommends it? I recommend it if you play Sonnia/McMourning/Justice which are 3 low Df Masters with no Armor or Squeels. You just said that a 12 Wd Df6 Armor +1 Dirty Cheater Mah Tucket is not tough enough. Well, without Frank those 3 would be even shittier defensively that her. That being said I think Frank is poorly designed because those 3 masters REALLY need him to survive. I`d much prefer if they got a +1Df and El Mayor was changed into a non-stat bonus.

    Its only needed because the Papa Box got removed from the game.
  20. Zipp wins UK Masters gg2018

    I`ll just say that Francisco was more a clarity issue but Loco got hit pretty hard with the bury change. (not saying undeservingly but I`d definitely count it towards the nerf)
  21. Big Brain Brin - A hidden gem?

    Gremlin players have to be more vocal, so speak up
  22. Big Brain Brin - A hidden gem?

    Sure, name them.
  23. Big Brain Brin - A hidden gem?

    I dunno, I`d prefer everyone had 0 silly things. I think a lot of good stuff sells a game better than how much silly stuff you have But those two are IMHO definitely undercosted.
  24. Nellie is not dead

    And pushes supply wagon 4"!
  25. Nellie is not dead

    Basically with a Queller he`s better at shooting than Perdita XD
