Carpe vs. @GutterOwl
:onimaru: :pschip: :psfist: :persephone: Just got wrecked this game, I haven’t played this MU in a while and Persephone got scary!
:onimaru: :psfist: :pschip: :persephone: Made some adjustments, thought through options, and I managed to pull this one out with patience
:onimaru: :psfist: :pschip: :persephone:
:onimaru: :psfist: :pschip: :persephone: So what absolutely killed me about this game was that I Final Authority’d Gutter’s On Your Knees, but I didn’t have the right suit to use my Qs, and Gutter was at 9 HP…I had to use my K instead, leaving Gutter at 1 HP

GGS! There were some close games here, I ended the last one with 19 HP! I’m glad I did my homework on this matchup today, it helped me get a really clear picture of the fight.

gutterowl 3-1 @Hobusu

oni > degrey
just in hobu’s head, over and over. i’ve eaten enough pilebunkers to guess the initial rhythm.

oni > degrey
starts looking more like it should, until I drop raw KKKK and disbelieve the facedown. can’t remember if i got a clockwork too. pretty good way to get back in the running, and won the low-life scramble with a good guess.

oni < degrey
and then ghost ripose and oni has a bit of a cry. you know how it is.

perse > degrey
incredibly canon. power lash undercuts round 1 pilebunker, and then degrey stood up like twice in the rest of the match. i gave you that ghost, boy, and i can take her away.

ggs hobusu.

this explains everything


#104

I was just wondering, what happens to the match results of the players who dropped out partway? Are those results just scratched out, or do they affect how wins and losses are weighted?


#105

I’ll have to think about it. I think there are arguments both for just treating their remaining games as forfeits, and for just completely removing them from the record.


#106

I think the matches played and forfeits should count. Usually, if an individual forfeits their record was poor. That makes me feel less sympathetic to someone who lost to the forfeiting player while everyone else gets free wins. I can only think of one occasion in seven seasons where someone forfeited with a winning record late in the season. I am willing to deal with this possibility. We discussed this during Season 1 and came to the conclusion to count all games.


#107

That was my recollection of how it had been handled previously, and my inclination on how to handle it now.

gutterowl 3-1 vs @vengefulpickle

perse > setsuki well that’s one i’m not used to winning.
perse > setsuki i started just reading throw in neutral like 90% of the time, and i was usually right. went a long way.
perse < setsuki look math is going to start occurring at some point, and 'seph is a delicate flower.
oni > setsuki opening sets Q gets blue bursted. still relying really hard on those neutral throw reads, and oni crunches them much more efficiently.

ggs, yo.

And see here, I thought I was pushing red buttons too frequently.

EDIT: At least, that’s what I remember feeling while we were playing. Clearly I need to do better at analyzing my range midgame.
