  1. First off thank you for the great advice. I am about to start with Big Hats as almost the last Bayou crew in my collection and it's very helpful. On the other hand I feel like I am missing something essential in M3E when reading this. Multiple times you all wrote about how good Skeeters are for scheming... They are Insignificant and can neither collect Evidence, drop schemes for Sabotage or count anyhow for Schemes and Strats at all. What am I missing here?
  2. Like others have pointed out, I am not sure if this can be done by Schemes and Strategies... I have a game in a couple of hours that made me think about the whole thing about pass tokens. One of the main advantages of cheap minions is, that especially in the 1st and 2nd turn you could have your opponent make his monsters activate, before you had to make your real move. With pass tokens, its the opposite, now it's the week spot of cheap models since you have to move your small guys and the big ones can wait until their prey is where they want it to be. One way to make low coast models more
  3. I was thinking on a different approach for balancing in GGs. Balancing power levels of models and crews is more a question for erratas imho and not something that can be done with a GG document probably. But GG could give an other kind of tool for balancing the game. There could be some limitations for combinations of strategies and schemes. A strategy could exclude certain schemes from being chosen along with them. Or even schemes could have an exclusion for certain schemes that cannot be scored in the same game. I came to think of this after two frustrating games with Bayou crews a
  4. It feels a little like there are not really good reasons to play low coast models in M3E anymore😔 Generating Schemes or Strategy that will change that are challenging to find I guess. But as the thread is not just about Schemes and Strategies there might still be a way in GG2 to tackle that. Could be a new limitation for crewbuilding, such as no more then 2 miniatures with a cost of 8 or more. Something like that. But in the end, there will always be Keywords that will profit or loose from such changes and it is part of the game to adept to rule changes.
  5. Less killing Strategies, down to none at all, would be great. Killing opposing models always grants advantage, even with no VP gained for it, as it helps deny opposing crews the scoring. As such, there is no need for having half of the Strategies beeing based on killing models. There will be always enough reasons for fights and heavy hitter crews still work for those who like to play that way. Even if its just a tanky hitter guarding your Strategy Markers.
  6. After some delays due to the Covid situation, we finally had our finals today. We'd had 6 participants and played 3 rounds over more than 2 months to make sure everyone could play in a safe environment. Better safe than sorry atm. Final standings were as follows, named by the Fixed Leaders: Titania Toni Ironside Jack Daw Mei Feng Leveticus Kaeris If you are a little more interested in details, I've collected some data. Mainly to get a better feeling for GG1 for further leagues
  7. We talked a lot about the Tormented lately and a Question came up. If I have an ability like Guilty as Charged that lets me treat a friendly model like an enemy one, when do I have to decide? If Jack wants to target a friendly Guilty with Jack's Suppressed Memories and want to declare an On your Heel Trigger, can the Guilty be treated as friendly for the attack but enemy for the Trigger? Like that no Upgrade would be attached but the Trigger could still be applied. It seems there is nothing to prevent that, since he meets both conditions, but it kind of feels like it is not intended... Or
  8. I played a lot against Jack in M3E and I read a lot about tactics to play against him and I disagree with many points. You can attack the Jack players hand, you can go for pin damage and you can take a load of soul stones. There are abilities (Stunned for sure) that are very useful against Jack, but this ain't the problem. Each crew and each tech has its counter, thats part of non-symmetric games. The problem I see with Jack is, that it is a crew you have to build a counter crew against to even stand a chance. If you for example would be bound to Fixed Leader or similar restrictions or if
  9. I agree, but is a condition for a trigger the same as paying a cost? Thats basically what confuses me. If a trigger asks for a specific type of model, it does not sound like a cost to me. If a trigger asks for removing a certain marker or something like that it is obvious, but if it asks for a type of model or a conditional value like in the case of the example with Fingers, is this considered a cost? In the case mentioned it kind of feels like it would be intended that the trigger can be applied when it has the poison level after the attack but before the triggered effect happens. A
  10. I got confused by the FAQ😅 The March FAQ states at point 4 that a trigger is declared even if costs can not be paid but then have no effects. What does that mean for conditional Triggers? Lets say I have a Fingers Leong targeting a model with poison 1 or 2 with the "Have a Drink". Can I declare the "A Small Favor" Trigger and actually perform an action afterwards? At the moment where i declare triggers the condition is not fulfilled yet, but after the attack when the trigger would like to go off the poison level is reached.
  11. We are starting a league-style tournament the 29th of August. As we want to minimize the risk for everyone, it will not take place on one day, but rather over a time of 6 weeks. There will be 3 rounds, each of which runs over two weeks, so everyone gets the chance to play their games whenever fits best. Games should be played at House of Cards in Bern. Please make sure to reserve tables in time for your games. The tournament will follow the GG1 rules with the following additional restrictions for each crew: - 50 Soul Stones - Single - Fixed Leader - Vanilla -

  15. Due to the shut down in Switzerland the House of Cards remains closed until 20th of April. This means the Malifaux Day will is canceled. I hope there will be a new one at end of April.
