Definitely!! Did you record those?
I have got the tapes.
Can’t wait to see it with your life reactions
Sadly it won’t be live reactions. Juicer does commentary over the top after the fact for games he played in.
Sadly true. I neglected to turn my camera on, so I don’t have the player-cam footage. Just assume I was sweating and shaking anytime any Aces were powered up for at any stage of the game, because I was.
DAMMIT. ok fine still can’t wait to see.
Still sad that I couldn’t get one.
flagrantangles wins 3-0 vs @CKR
I was tired of getting murdered as Quince versus Zane so I decided to switch it up. I have normally shied away from playing this MU because the first time I played it was against ratxt1 and he stomped me into the ground. However, I decided that I like playing Geiger and he’s got good stuff against Zane. Mostly, I just didn’t play exclusively for TD and just played for Aces since both sides are quite good against Zane. It worked out for me. However, each game got progressively harder as I could practically feel the tension rising as CKR readjusted his play. The final game was quite close but I decided to just play the goddamned Flash Gear. It worked. GGs CKR! You’re a player I’m always very concerned about playing since I don’t have a good record against you or your powerful Zane.
Good set CKR. Extremely upsetting ending for me, though; I played dQ into a 15 HP Zane and then quickly realized that if he has a Crash Bomb, he should 100% play it then. With no way to undo the card, sure enough dQ hits the Crash Bomb putting him to 1 HP. I have over 50 health, but my hand is checkmated by Odd normal, so he gets 9Q9J. I’m still checkmated by Odd normal, so he plays another one into lethal. Sigh.
It just hurts especially because I wanted to pull my card back and couldn’t, and then took over 60 damage that I couldn’t prevent at all. Ughhh.
I had the joker. I was debating on whether to throw into J for knockdown or K. I was leaning towards throw, then I decided to use the K. Your Q most definitely would have been better to use in the upcoming KD scenario. Any other attack/block would have probably been better options at that time with a Q in reserve.
@Leontes , you was most certainly not in checkmate. You used your 4 for a facedown. You was at 5hp and I was at 1hp. I had another K in hand. That would give me a chip victory, but I was worried about a 4 attack or J. I thought for sure that you had something because of that bluff. I took a 50/50 (I wasn’t sure about your lack of odd blocks) shot to win and almost certainly not lose because by your reaction I was almost certain that you didn’t have another Q.
Well yeah, that’s what I meant. You shouldn’t go for K there because I could have attacked out, but normal attack was nearly 0% risk at that point (other than me blocking right and getting up).
I had to draw a Joker or Q to survive at that point. My sadness was that I wanted to take the Q back, and that I had over 50 health and died to extremely safe options >_<
Not trying to discount your play or anything. I’m upset I didn’t try to cross up both of your blocks on your wakeup; that would have changed the set dramatically.
I definitely deserved to lose this one.
Me vs good ol @mysticjuicer
In hindsight, just don’t play to the mirror of a more experienced opponent
That’s more like it!
Big sword smash tiny ninja!
THAT FREAKING JOKER. Emptied my hand with a dodge into lethal.
Finally took control and reeled it in.
Creator and Destroyer made me a very sad man. I probably lost close to 20 aces.
That was the game plan. If you know a man likes CMB, let him power up to create the aces. Ignore AA. Then, promptly destroy them. I can see how it would be disheartening. I would have been very impressed if you would have been able to pull off the win with that strat. I do like your style, though.
Thanks! I was definitely having a ton of fun. Almost every hand refresh gave me the cards to power back up so I took it as fate.

I’ll try to write some thoughts down later, but right now I’m short on time!
