Zqxx v @Fluffiness
R5L
4—0

:gwen: :psfist: :pschip: :setsuki:
:gwen: :psfist: :pschip: :valerie:
:gwen: :psfist: :pschip: :gwen: I manage to do the dream: I duff a throw with J+ –> K++ –> A+ for that sweet max damage combo.
:gwen: :psfist: :pschip: :gloria:

Maybe Gwen is good? The jury is still out. :thinking:


#203

that would be 7 cp tho. dream is eitherJ+K++A+ or J+6JA+


#204

You’re right. I can’t do math, but I CAN do 42 damage combos regardless.


#205

R5L MR vs @Dietz 4-2

:grave::psfist::pschip::lum:
We ran a balance blodge game for about half deck (70hp each), then a dodge into TPoS changed the game

:grave::pschip::psfist::grave:
I ate an early raw TPoS and my life flew away till vs almost full life (I touched him anyway!). I tried a little comeback roughly stopped by an A smashed in my face

:quince::psfist::pschip::grave:
Here the struggle. Grave is my main, so betray him or keep him. That was a really scary grave on the other side, so Quonce time! A looong game, some good dmg here and there and navigated to win the point at 8 cards left…

:quince::psfist::pschip::grave:
Another early raw TPoS eaten!!! I was immediately shot down to few hps, but this time I managed to activate washing machine, made a comeback to 10hp vs 2hp (and again, about 10 cards left), and I guessed right throwing his dodge.

:quince::pschip::psfist::grave:
This time I early activated the washing machine and took liflead, but he made a really nice comeback. At 14hp (him) vs 11 hp and last card of my deck, another A smashed my face.

:quince::psfist::pschip::grave:
Same script as previous game… this time I finally dodged lethal raw TPoS and managed to take the set.

Really scary Grave.
Respect and GGs!

Always a pleasure to play with you!


#207

:argagarg: the 19XX gatekeeper

In the :gloria: games, Zqxx played PERFECTLY and had all the draws to win. Very well played and any :argagarg: who wins 2-0 against a :gloria: in a bo7 probably deserves the set.

Onward to Summer Smash, where I can :troq: that stupid fish to hell.

19XX: Where established MU numbers go to die, apparently.


#210

R6L MR vs @Copper8642 4-0

:grave::psfist::pschip::menelker:
I got a really good start, taking a large liflead (like 80hp vs 16hp), then I was DSDed and game became even… luckily a couple of As closed it

:grave::psfist::pschip::menelker:
1st turn BCed, he got rid of my only block (9) and left me KD. I topdecked another 9 :wink: and blocked his bQ. Then game flew with some back and forth and I managed to take it.

:grave::psfist::pschip::menelker:
Two BC landed, two duffed in early game. Luckily the two that hit caught a not really scary hand on my side, so I didn’t lose any As or Joker.

:grave::psfist::pschip::menelker:
Here I got BCed again, he got rid of a Q and immediately I topedcked another Q :wink: . Then I managed to take lifelead at 54hp vs 20hp: here he powerup for DSD and that turn I topdeck a Joker, to make me safely attack and duff his immediately DSD attempt.
It seems that cards were on my side, indeed

I gotta really good draws!!!

Respect and GGs


#211

Ok, comments added above, with a bit delay :slight_smile:


#212

Zqxx v @MR75
Losers’ SemiFinals
4 – 1

:argagarg::pschip::psfist::quince: I have a really big lead until I don’t and then I die.
:gwen::psfist::pschip::quince:
:gwen::psfist::pschip::grave:Totally stolen game. Three times MR75 dodged with TPoS in hand for lethal, and each time he bought my bluff. Never drew a joker the whole game!
:gwen::psfist::pschip::grave:
:gwen::psfist::pschip::grave:

Move over Elsa; there’s a new ice queen in town.

Good games!


#213

And so it ends my journey, 4th place like last year…alas

Very very well played @Zqxx!

Normally I feel quite confident in Grave-Gwen MU (Grave has all the tools he needs), but in this set you really drove me crazy and pushed me to play a really bad Grave, looking up for TPoS (all dodged or not played!).

Your “Arg” version of Gwen was super!

Good luck in the rest of the tourney!
