NOVA Open TO Report

Recommended Posts

Well, the NOVA Open tournament have officially kicked off with Through the Breach. Crew draft s nearly at an end and players are starting to push forward.

As a reminder, Through the Breach is the NOVA's "Beginner Friendly" tournament. Stats are:

Through the Breach

  • 30SS, Single Faction
  • 4 rounds
  • Domination Format (TP/Diff/VP)

22 players started the tournament. Faction breakdown as follows:

  • 6 Neverborn :masks
  • 5 Ressurectionists :crows
  • 5 Outcasts :blast
  • 4 Guild :rams
  • 2 Arcanist :tomes

I will try and keep people updated as each round passes.

Achievement league kicked off a minute after midnight today, and had 3 players start playing games at that point. Achievements were earned overnight and points are accruing.

Seems ok on the Hurricane front. We are in the basement of the hotel, so I have not seen the outside for a fair while.

Sweet, love up to date coverage.

For anyone at NOVA reading this. Remember

GUILD DOMINATION :)

Guild showing is not too bad. 4 guild to 6 neverborn.

So you guys are good unless you lose power. Then you have to play Malifaux by Gaslight :)

Nice spread of factions, I'm surprised that the arcanists do not have more though. Can't wait to see more live updates!

Just theory, but my guess is colette players dont really feel she is in her comfort zone at less then 35SS. If nova is running a higher SS tournie, which I think they are, I expect that number to be higher.

This is also a beginners tourney. So people might not be gaming the system much.

Rounds 3 just started. Standings by faction as follows (with scoring at round 3).

Remember, rounds can shift a bit based on overall scores.

  1. Neverborn (12vp/6TP/7Diff)
  2. Neverborn (8/6/4)
  3. Neverborn (10/6/3)
  4. Outcast (14/4/8)
  5. Outcast (13/4/7)
  6. Neverborn (12/4/7)
  7. Resser (13/4/6)

  12. Outcasts (5/3/-1)
  13. Outcast (7/3/-2)
  14. Arcanist (4/3/-2)
  15. Neverborn (7/3/-5)
  16. Outcast (4/3/-6)
  17. Guild (7/1/-6)
  18. Resser (8/0/-2)
  19. Neverborn (4/0/-3)
  20. Guild / Resser (4/0/-8)
  21. Arcanist (2/0/-11)

The big upset that round was the top table outcast players drawing their game and dropping down to 4th and 5th place overall. Still fairly big changes, with only 3 players going into round 3 with win's.

Surprising (to me), some well known board members have taken some real hard hits and dropped low down the rankings. Other "Newer" player have stepped up to the top tables showing some real competition!

So based on your posted tables before the top three neverborn Were Z, Z, and Lilith? Still the same masters or they swapping em around?

Color me unsurprised. I'll be the first to admit however that things can change wildly up until the final match is over. While the current standings don't surprise me in the least we need to wait until the final results are in until we can really add this data to our discussions.

Right, At Gencon I think two of the top 4 players dropped down a lot after there loss in the last round.
