This group is apparently a Death Trap!
mi-go hunter vs @desiderata, 3-0
GGs! Games 1 and 2 went down to the wire, extremely close.
Game 2 I had NO face cards till I had like 30~ cards left in the deck where I finally drew a singular Q but I managed to win with the help of consent… and lots of blocking.
Game 3, I abused K spin and patriot mirror to victory after Desi spent all his 7 throws and an 8 throw too early.
Quince is a tricky character and it helped that he was unfamiliar with the matchup. Keep improving and good luck in your future games!
mi-go hunter vs @ThreeHeadedMonkey, 3-2
Game one was pretty back and forth until late game when I was able to get my vortex running and win.
Game two was a stomp. My opening hand was all face cards and 2s and I drew no blocks; THM sniffed it out and punished me till I had a severe life deficit. I attempted to run it back for a bit but alas I ran out of resources and guessed wrong.
Game three was pretty clinical by THM and unfortunately I drew no jokers to mitigate scary zane damage.
Game four I decided to ride out the rest of the set with Jaina. This time I was able to gain the upper hand… till I had less than 50 HP and THM powered up for two aces. I managed to navigate the MA endgame and had a joker as backup. MA only became truly real the last two turns.
Game five THM stuck to his guns with zane which I definitely respected since he had some strong reads on him. This time my deck helped me out with a healthy amount of throws, 2 aces and 2 queens. That’s in addition to getting 2 aces from a succesful unstable power throw. From there it was a game of “when to throw zane and do 30+ damage” which I managed to succesfully pull off.
Good games! What a brutal slugfest that was.
LTH 3-0 Fivec
ggs, Fivec, it was well played, especially the tight almost-comeback in game 3
The hypest set in recent memory. The scoops are real (SUPLEX OF SCIENCE)
Yeah, except for the part where I didn’t come back.
Fine, sorry, almost comeback.
Still, you had a ~50 life deficit and a trash hand and took me down to 8 through a joker, I think that’s pretty damn impressive, all the same.
sharpobject vs @Bomber678, 3-2
Drawing good cards helps you win!
Thanks for playing even after I didn’t reply forever!!
That definitely one hell of a set! Cross at myself for some of my choices there, and playing into some of your traps. But they were very well done! The Jaina - Zane games were super tense. So easy to second guess decisions! Well played for a deserved win.
mi-go hunter vs @UTRALAW, 3-1
Games were pretty wack, first game almost tilted me to oblivion but then I regained composure and won by thinking about “hey maybe he’ll play this to try and dump hand” and throwing at random times.
Say it one more time for the people in the back.
I THREW THIS MAN. A LOT.
I have to add this sentence or else I get an error message and can’t post.
LTH 3-1 Sharpobject
GGs to sharpo who has been incredibly patient with me this week m(_ _)m
everyone knows HOW to beat her. Nobody thinks it’s fun.
Me vs Sharpobject
I win, 3-1
Quince < Gloria A game that I had every right to win yet I lost nonetheless. A good game
Zane > Gloria mmhmm
Zane > Geiger x2 I just did Zane things. Not once did I feel like I was being especially skillful, yet I won nonetheless.
Me vs. fivec
I win, 3-0
Valerie > Setsuki x3 The only time in memory that I have beaten fivec in a straight set, real name no gimmicks (two trailer park girls go round the outside).
Bomber678 and lowtierhero are both issued a loss by TO decision.
NB: The Challonge page will not really handle this cleanly (as I can only issue a tie there), but the standings in the OP are correct.
Copper versus migohunter
I fucking did it. I hate this matchup
Here it is. I’d rather lose this matchup than fight Menelker.
empty his hand good strat
: I lost many combats, ended with K throw checkmates
He duffed a DSD and got me to 10 health while he still had 90, but I started to land cards and empty his hand. A super unfortunate timer-play led to him playing a 9-throw in an awkward spot, and I carried the momentum to the end. Sorry migo
Bomber678 3-1 Niijima-san
“Just draw your good cards, don’t draw any of the bad ones.”
I’m not as good as Ryker.
Force him to Acro then hit him with the straight.
This one was close! I dodged a DSD, but managed to exploit Niijima-san’s low hand in the end game.
I had fun! I hope you did too. There was some real tension there.
I will say I had SOME fun. The first game was kind of annoying, but that was more because i just don’t like Onimaru. The second game I thought was plenty fun (I love Ven vs Geiger and my record in that MU speaks for itself). I had fun in the last mu too… or would have if I wasn’t so angry about the ven x Grave game. Getting hit sucks. Getting hit by dumb stuff (twice) sucks even more.
