No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!
Yeah, an 8 man foul is more of a hen night thing.
Gratz Helio :)
my match against Alini ended up a 2-2 draw. His tackle, guard and block skills scattered across (what felt like) his entire team had me worried from the start. It turned out my worrying was for nothing - I should've worried about the dice instead. In a match where the rain never stopped falling, neither did the rats. It seemed that everything I tried failed - apart from a fairly lucky first score in response to Alini's standard dwarf rolling cage opening score. At this point my Rat Ogre decided it was nap time and slept through the rest of the game.
My second score was ridiculous. My one remaining GutterRunner (as opposed to my 3 ManRunners) managed to 2D against blitz the ballcarrier from a slightly messy (but packed with dwarves) cage, then dodge through the cage to pickup the ball and run a short distance away with only a thrower for pathetic support. Alini was unable to knock my GR down but threw a load of beards around him, naturally he made the few dodges to score a cheeky TD. At this point, being 2-1 up with only a few turns remaining, I was suddenly feeling optimistic. Moreso when Alini's SH runner failed to pickup the ball and I got a ManRunner and GutterRunner far enough (2 GFI's - each) to put 2 TZs on the ball. Alini managed to free the Runner and grab the ball but was unable to get to safety. I had a choice of going for a 2D blitz (unskilled IIRC) or a 1D Blitz with Wrestle, I mistakenly believed I still had a TRR so I went for the 1D and failed. Alini managed to string together a fairly lucky string of rolls to dodge away, GFI, Pass and Catch to equalise the score at 2-2 in the dying seconds.
I'm slightly disappointed that I didn't go for the 2D, but it probably wouldn't have made any difference at the end of the day. My ridiculous luck in scoring my second TD was somewhat balanced by Alini's equalising score and the dicerolls throughout the rest of the match (IMHO!) - prime exampe being a pitch invasion which knocked over 3 of his players, while leaving only 4 of mine still standing...
Overall I'm pretty pleased with a 2-2 draw, just the 2 Necro teams to go now - doddle!

I need to speak to the DoD ethics community, we don't deserve a 1 - 1 default, we have genuinely made time and effort to play this game, we've had 2 crash outs. and weirdly, no cas over all 3 games (roughly 12 turns each). Is there anything that can be done?
I was 1-0 this time with a guy 1 turn from the end zone. Rarrrgh.
We could give you an extension to try playing again...
Is it one of you in particular who's crashing, or what?
Right then: DWZippy, where do you live? We shall enlist the nearest other DoD player and you can use their PC to play the match!
P.S. Congrats Heliocentric!
BTW, thankyou for your congratulations, if I responded every time someone said it the spam would block out the sun :)
Not sure if Cacamas has mentioned this already, but could we get an extension to play our Group G match on Sunday afternoon please? That's the next time we're both available.
Would it be possible to move on Div A nice and promptly, seeing as Saturday morning is probably the ideal time for playing JayTee?
Congrats Helio ^_^
Thanks for the 99% accurat write up ntw! [his her] It certainly felt like at any moment scrabbling ratty claws would snatch the ball from me and leg it across the finish line.
