Summer Smash V - Round 1 deadline is July 15th


#81

Well this is unfortunate, but I think I’m bowing out of this and all future tournaments. I have officially lost my passion for Yomi. I was hoping my favorite tournament of the year would rekindle it but it didn’t. I will return if there is ever another expansion or whatnot, and I might tarry around the forums for a while, but no more games for me.

Good luck guys, and keep cracking skulls.


#82

Sorry to lose you, man. Hope to see you again someday.


#83

First Fivec and now Niijima-san too! Sad to see you go :frowning:

The Nameless One (vengefulpickle) vs The Silent (@leontes)

:zane::psfist::pschip::midori: - I play the char-select mixup game and go high tier for a change. @Leontes ends up with a hand that is checkmated by odd normals. It was rough.
:zane::pschip::psfist::troq: - I forget basic Troq/Zane interactions like K on KD, and pay for it pretty predictably.
:bbb::psfist::pschip::troq: - Troq disrespects my (fake) joker with a BU, I undercut AA with AA, I watch in shock as @Leontes misreads my discard and facedowns even though I have the other two aces in it, and then a third AA in a row closes out the game.
:bbb::psfist::pschip::grave: - At 39-39, I YOLO Robo Headbutt in the face of what was probably (or should have been) known TPoS, and have the Q++Q++ to back it up for lethal. Reckless plays don’t really deserve the wins…
:bbb::pschip::psfist::grave: - Grave brings it home from 3-20 with a Q followed by raw A.
:zane::psfist::pschip::grave: - I tier-scum back to Zane, and land an unexpected dodge into Max Anarchy because I don’t know any better.

Good games, @Leontes. It’s always a blast (and a terror) to play against you, and I feel very lucky to have been able to take this set.


#88

It was an awesome set! You’ve improved a lot since the last time we played, so I expect you to get far in this tournament! I need to work on my anti-:bbb: tech as always, so it was a good learning experience for me, too.

Does anyone still think :bbb: is low tier? lol

EDIT: Just checked :bbb: numbers since January of last year… why is he 26-9 against :quince:?!?


#89

I pulled up this old quote. At the time, I should have made the connection. Our replacement is BBB. I am puzzled/concerned about this Zane business.


#90

Reckless plays are sometimes the only way to get wins, my friend. :slight_smile:


#91

That’s since 2015. :slight_smile: He’s 10-4 against Quince since Jan 1 2017.

Sometimes you eat the bear bull, and sometimes, well, the bear bull eats you.


This was honestly one of the most-enjoyable sets of Yomi of my career. Plenty of ridiculous, how-did-that-work, heart-attack-inducing goon-ery. I would advise those learning to play Setsuki to watch these tapes and analyze my Sets play. You may not like it, but it’s what peak performance looks like. :wink:

Great games!

marathon set took us two hours to complete. every game versus except the last ended with less than 12 cards in thm’s deck. (last game was a good ol fashioned perselock, because zane isn’t entirely sure what blocking is.)

so many commands and true powers. please don’t ask me to remember details @~@

No one is born to be outstanding!

Xiba VS @lum_at_1st_sight
:setsuki: :knockdown: :psfist: :lum: :setsuki: get ahead most times except the last few turns. Now is 37hp to 13hp, and :lum: got blackjack and 20hp loss. And then Q conuter another blackjack! 19hp loss.So gg.
:setsuki: :knockdown: :psfist: :lum: This round likes the first round very much. Finally he got combo and then blackjack to kill me.
:argagarg: :psfist: :knockdown: :lum: So this round I thought I can use another character to try if I can beat his brilliant :lum: and if I lose I can choose once. So I bring out my :argagarg:! This turn is so close. :argagarg: use 10 to counter :lum: 10 always and We got 5 to 8 hp. He use his 10 and luckily I got 10 in my hand. So 5 to 4 (I had BS this time). I dodge and he throw. No damage so 5 to 2. Final round we thought a lot and I choose BS he choose As attack. And he use 10 I use 10 too. So I win with only 1hp. So close!
:argagarg: :knockdown: :psfist: :lum: Another close game! Finally lose atk vs atk and no joker.
:argagarg: :psfist: :knockdown: :lum: So now :lum: got the game point and I’m a bit nervous. In this round he is not lucky - he got joker in his blackjack again!
:argagarg: :psfist: :knockdown: :lum: So I got more confidence to win and use As attack more instead of BS and it really works to some extent.
:argagarg: :psfist: :knockdown: :setsuki: I don’t knoe why he changed to :setsuki: but when he changed to :setsuki: I took a big breath - I’m familiar with this girl and I’m confident I can win with my :argagarg: against :setsuki:. And the result turns out his :lum: is much stronger than :setsuki:. Although I win more but :setsuki: also did much damage to me.
Ggs. 2 hours is too long but very fulfill. For more details, anyone can see my replays. @lum_at_1st_sight your :chibilum: is really strong! Good luck next time!

flagrantangles (Tellah) wins 4-1 vs @variable (Iwazaru)
:quince::psfist::pschip::quince: I was worried, but I take control early and mostly maintain. Midway through, however, variable throws me into Q++.
:quince::psfist::pschip::zane: Zane joins the fun and I mostly just gold burst out of the vortex because I’m never without jokers. Hell, C&D gifts me with one.
:quince::psfist::pschip::zane:
:quince::pschip::psfist::zane: Variable handled the late game better than me. I kept thinking he would revise his play given how disrespectfully I’ve played around his options. NOPE. He just disrespected me playing respectfully and got me right in the murder hole.
:quince::psfist::pschip::zane: I had a good handle on this one until the pan fell off the stove and then Zane started cooking. Near the end, I played a brave PM, leaving him at 10 and then I did the usual odd normal + dodge. He played a 2 into it and jokered my lethal follow up. NOW THINGS ARE TENSE. I’m pretty sure he has Anarchy so dodging feels like the best. I decide to DISRESPECT ANARCHY and play the final Patriot Mirror. I hit a 5 throw and take the set.

GGs variable! You are a delight and I still remember when we got together to play Codex and Yomi. It was a lot of fun!

P.S. I may have more thoughts later but I have to go to lunch RIGHT NOW.
