:vendetta: < :quince:
they kind of blurred. I had one game I won combat 5 times in a row, dealing 4 damage only each time.
One game I actually K attacked on KD instead of 3 when I didn’t have 2 and it outsped A cc @Niijima-san Also had a game with 4 straight K throws vs KD. Got wildly outplayed by jokers, they sucked up over 100 damage in these games and i didn’t go in vs bluffs a bunch of times too.
:troq: < :argagarg: got completely stomped almost checkmated twice, somehow got it down to an exact 50-50 on the last turn miraculously then lost it.
:troq: > :argagarg: block block block block K K K BU

GGs!

Thanks for dealing with my scheduling and sticking with the games.


#89

MR vs @Xiba

:bbb::psfist::pschip::menelker:
opening hand with 2 jokers… terrified to be BCed, I spent those ones in two turns at once. Result: 20dmg taken anyway and Mene not touched… But later we went to range

:grave::timer_clock::pschip::onimaru: my hit confirm bold TPoS was brutally blue bursted. We went on many blodge turns, digging deep into our deck. Later game, I spent my 7s to reach deckout…

:grave::psfist::pschip::onimaru:
A silent TPoS let me get great lifelead, but a scary comeback set us in 50-50 situation at 16hp vs 12hp, with all jokers already spent. Dodge into spark arc for lethal

(here we suspended the match for the day, due to my lack of time)
and then,

:rook::psfist::pschip::valerie:
I started a little too conservative for my standard and got punished by some Val’s throws and a brutal throw into 5J++. A couple of Ks and AA evened our lives.
We went on final turn 24hp vs 20hp, 5 cards Rook side, 4 cards Val side.
I went for RA starting 8, undercutted by all in 534Q+, 23dmg (!!!), and with magic pixel, RA into Q+ for lethal. Ultra luck!

Great set Xiba, thanks for your availability to split our match into two rounds

Respect and GGs!

:troq: > :midori: thought i was going to perfect, lost 65 in 3 combats, went to last combat, won
:lum: < :zane: down to last combat, where he has MA I have AA lethal and 2 10s in hand for lethal, die on last combat.
:troq: > :midori: took a bunch of damage, BU for my first combat win. took more damage, then 3 kings beating his TWO jokers
:onimaru: > :zane: wild game where he led off with K*KK and I blocked 3 of the 4, cruised after.
:onimaru: > :zane: thought i was going to win easily but he powered for anarchy from a low hand which was lethal after my A A A “traded” with K K 9 on wakeups. Dodged it then 9 threw for victory.

GGs @CKR those were incredibly fun games. Really reminds me how great this is.

That game 5 was the critical game. I needed to get a few blocks in and you exploited that perfectly. I think at one point, I was running out of blocks and only had a 2 or a 4. I assumed you was most likely going to lay off trying to crush me. Then, you/Oni played the perfect 5 crush. They should call that move the soul crush. It went off the rails after that (i.e. stupid hail mary Max Anarchy trickshot attempt against likely FA loaded Oni). Well played.

There is a decent chance we will play again in Grand Finals. Hopefully this story arc concludes with redemption.
