Math Mathonwy Posted March 19, 2014 Report Share Posted March 19, 2014 The previous discussion got a bit out of hand and was closed but I was hoping that we could have a calm thread about things since I think that there was quite a bit left to discuss. If we could keep all the "l2p" -stuff and all in all dismissiveness to a minimum and respect one another's experiences.Hopefully opening a new thread isn't against the rules. My sincerest apologies if this isn't deemed kosher.Another thing worth pointing out from the beginning is that Justin said that Rotten Belles won't be errataed in the foreseeable future. So this thread isn't about that. Therefore calling Ca8 OP is probably not very productive and hoping for a cuddle is futile at this point.Now, I have a lot of respect for the Chicago guys. It's a big pool of players and they have a healthy scene that has been going on for a long time. Now, the previous thread did point out that in the pictures that were shown from a tournament, there wasn't all that much terrain and it was posited that this would be a key reason why Rotten Belles seem to rule Chicago while other areas with equally active scenes haven't encountered problems. I didn't really see a Chicago answer to these claims - could you try using twice as much terrain as normal in a weekly game and see if that makes a difference or not? Also, have you found long range crews more powerful across the spectrum or is it just Belles?What happened in the Vassal game? Mythicfox and csonti (I think, sorry if I misremember) were going to have a Vassal game where csonti would go with six Rotten Belles. How did it go?One thing left open from the previous thread was a description of what the Chicago Rotten Belles actually do. Many people who didn't believe in the power of the list offered that Rotten Belles can only Lure and, on thesurface, that doesn't seem like it would win games on its own.But again I wish to stress that we are talking about a big, active group whose play experience seems to differ strongly from the experiences elsewhere. Is it really simply the amount of terrain? Or is it that they have clued in into a style of play that really favours Rotten Belles?Have you tried 6-belle lists in other places and how did they do?Finally, please remember mutual respect. The people on the other end of the Internet (and there's people there - not just goofy names and avatars) are likely as intelligent and as experienced as you are yet their experiences may differ. And let's remember that we are a welcoming community brough together through the love of this game. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
