A couple of tournaments are starting up, and I can’t play Yomi all summer, so after this round, please take me out of the rotation until further notice.
TokH vs @Caralad
Opened up flustered and took a game to get into the swing of things. A crushing defeat.
Troq’s erratic tendencies of when to block and when to go in confuse Fish. Fish gets Troq down to lethal, but is overcome by the Beats.
Another fairly close set, but Fish, maybe too scarred from the Beats, misses poke opportunities and is tossed around like a beach ball at a Nickelback concert.
vengefulpickle 3 - 0 @Xiba
Hoo, boy, these were some nailbiters. I got some good loops in. but never the hard lock. They all came down to the last turns, and could have gone the other way if I had guessed wrong. Good games!
Ivan vs Arthur Wynne - 2:3
Not sure about the order, correct me if I’m wrong. GGS very tense games, except may be the last one, where i was totally destroyed by Qs, Js and Grave’s things Well played, mate.
Hey I need to drop out for a bit. I’m in some tourneys and summer is hard to reliably schedule things.

@LizardLinc: I took you out for this week because you didn’t respond in your match scheduling thread.
(Note: 10 mentions per post is annoying)
Argh… I just realized that none of the stars updated… Will fix in a moment.
nah, I’m out until at least mid-August
Thanks for checking but I’m definitely not in for another few weeks at least
I’ll be back when I have internet again
I’ll be back when I decide whether I like Yomi again.
Before I forget:
vengefulpickle 2 - 3 @Luke1705
Midori start the game on a tear (K > K > K) but went low hand and I was able to get some effective ranged time, eventually. Ended the game with only 4 health remaining
I don’t know this MU at all, but it felt bad.
Good games, @Luke1705!
It’s bad: J dominates normals, K all but 2, and neither even does too badly against blocks. Lum also doesn’t care that much about being at range (enough hp to block a few Qs, recurring dodges on A and throws are not a big part of his game). Similarly to Gloria, out of combat damage is bad news for BBB.
Well played! Val still needs some work, but those were mostly fairly close at least…
@Caralad wins 3-1 vs me, flagrantangles!
I figured he’d lead with Troq and I’m garbage vs Troq with Quince (and nearly everyone else) so I figured I’d lead with either Geiger or Onimaru. I decided on Geiger because I’ve played him WAY MORE. I get two good throws in but for the most part, Caralad has me on the ropes. Neither one of us has a large or small hand. Eventually I manage to set up a TD turn and then I call the dodge and I play into his FD because my normal attack will get me lethal. IT’S A JOKER. He’s left with 1 life and I’ve got 2 cards after drawing. He War Stomps me twice and then hits my no card with Beast Unleashed. Alas, if I had kept the normal, he wouldn’t have had the third to make me no card.
I tried this out because it’s not like I can lose my way out of this tournament. It works out, but feels not great in the beginning. I don’t manage to get any guard crushes for a good while and then when I do, it’s so EXTRA. Like, crushed a 3 with a 10. Oh well, I manage to take this one off the coinflip at the end.
This went pretty evenly, actually. Near the end I guessed incorrectly and DIED. It also helps that he found two jokers.
I was doing alright in this until I ran out of steam. Quince has a hard time when he doesn’t draw any 2 Truths. I managed to throw out his dodge near the end but it’s with a Queen so I’m definitely signalling I don’t have a throw and I actually didn’t. I draw a 10 and he powers up for an Ace. I thought for sure he would just Ace but instead he bonks me and I die. I could have played CotG but the dodge was too safe from him, in my opinion.
While I lost, I’m proud to say that each of the matches was pretty close and truly came down to the end! GGs, Caralad!
Ivan vs Xiba - 3:0
