The Nameless One (vengefulpickle) vs The Silent (@leontes)
- 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.
- I forget basic Troq/Zane interactions like K on KD, and pay for it pretty predictably.
- 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.
- 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…
- Grave brings it home from 3-20 with a Q followed by raw A.
- 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.
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- tech as always, so it was a good learning experience for me, too.
Does anyone still think is low tier? lol
EDIT: Just checked numbers since January of last year… why is he 26-9 against ?!?
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.
Reckless plays are sometimes the only way to get wins, my friend.
That’s since 2015. He’s 10-4 against Quince since Jan 1 2017.
MR vs @Caralad 4-3
Our 3rd match in a week!
Long and close set. I landed some TPoS’ but ate some MAs too!
Respect and GGs
Ironically, across all 3 matches we went 9-9 in games.
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.
I think I found my thumbnail text.
the devil (gutterowl) 4-2 over kass (threeheadedmonkey)
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
get ahead most times except the last few turns. Now is 37hp to 13hp, and got blackjack and 20hp loss. And then Q conuter another blackjack! 19hp loss.So gg.
This round likes the first round very much. Finally he got combo and then blackjack to kill me.
So this round I thought I can use another character to try if I can beat his brilliant and if I lose I can choose once. So I bring out my ! This turn is so close. use 10 to counter 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!
Another close game! Finally lose atk vs atk and no joker.
So now got the game point and I’m a bit nervous. In this round he is not lucky - he got joker in his blackjack again!
So I got more confidence to win and use As attack more instead of BS and it really works to some extent.
I don’t knoe why he changed to but when he changed to I took a big breath - I’m familiar with this girl and I’m confident I can win with my against . And the result turns out his is much stronger than . Although I win more but 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 is really strong! Good luck next time!
flagrantangles (Tellah) wins 4-1 vs @variable (Iwazaru)
I was worried, but I take control early and mostly maintain. Midway through, however, variable throws me into Q++.
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.
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.
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.
@FenixOfTheAshes advances by TO decision.
I climbed the Spire, ever higher, dagger in hand, ascending the floors.
The Nameless One then struck me down; my eyes snapped shut like closing doors.
They open again, a familiar face. Eternally, I question why.
His maw unfolds with putrid breath, again he asks…
The Silent (Leontes) vs. Crassus (@SouthpawHare)
Leontes wins, 4-2.
“I climb, I die, I climb again.”
The last three games SPH was completely in the driver’s seat. Solidly beaten in game 4, game 5 I went for a Maximum Anarchy gamble that didn’t pay off (he had to play exactly 1 of his last two remaining Ks to get hit by it realistically), and then I was dropped to 1 HP VERY QUICKLY by a couple high-powered Pilebunker combos that fortunately left his hand at 1 card.
I powered up my entire hand to threaten Anarchy, and landed a Throw into his Dodge; 9 and J put him down to 44. With knocked down and at 2 cards, I just played faceup Anarchy and prayed for the checkmate. It was.
I think if I wasn’t already up 3-0 when came out, this would have been a lot different.
Excellent play SPH. Good luck in 19XX!
R1L snoc vs @Jengajam
pre-counterpicked, but my Qs are better than his and he doesn’t manage to get swole or find any jokers
similar to G1
this time I (mostly) avoid being decapitated by the HUGE SWORD except for when I fail to use my joker after being dodged at 24hp, but manage to close it out from there by swinging into Authrowity
BEAST UNLEASHED but still down to a 1hp coinflip on the last combat
too impatient to finish this one off and dodge into AA is a Good Enough Move
Truly an insane game, Troq naturally draws all 4 Ks and AA in the top ~20 cards, then I pull off a clutch Blackjack into PF, followed by a later JA flip into another Blackjack for the win!
GGs, I had a lot of the right cards at the right times but I was sweating all the way and not just because of the heatwave.
R2 vengefulpickle vs @UTRALAW
Got pushed to low hand, and punished for it, before stealing the game with a hyuk-ed up throw into 5.
Drew good cards and was able to perfect the mirror
Got blowed up real good. How do I even play this MU?
Long game, down to the wire, with many aces applied to faces. My Pers play was super subpar… (like, Mistress Command into dodge into 4… twas a miracle I managed to pull the game out as long as I did)
I remember how to play, and get a solid Pers vortex up and running.
Too many fast cards, too much damage. Ouch, ouch, ouch.
Opening Crash Bomb into Bonecracker sets the tone of this match. I do nasty Zane things, and close out the perfect exactsies with the hidden Minimum Anarchy Slipstream Phase that I was dealt on turn one. There were only 42 actions in the replay for this one. My cards were truly excellent.
Great games, @UTRALAW! Sorry for all the interruptions, and best of luck in the rest of the tournament!
