Should be fine - I have no plans over the weekend
Corkir - Mind if we postpone the match for 30 minutes or so, I just got home?
Noooo i will have to help with the washing up now :( Thirty mins is fine.
Soo, quite close game, we both had our fair share of snake eyes, but Corkir mostly avoided them on the important rolls. I also had a couple of dumb mistakes but I don't think they affected the match that much. Eldir was a hypno-beast today which didn't help me at all.
Dodge'n'dance 3-1 Insufferable
Thanks for the game Corkir, it was tense all the way.
Just a heads up. I'm constantly 1000 TV down, it's just depressing having 3 bribes and not even getting to use them because no one is lying down and even my secret weapon guys get ground into dust before they can achieve any thing.
I might not persist in this league.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
I am not surprised (considering how tough it is for a 1500k+ goblin team in the Open).
I assume you're also grabbing Ripper and Morg? I'd use the remaining inducement cash for babes and a wizard. If the opposing team has only 2-4 TRRs a chef can mess them up. Bribes can be pretty fickle, and sometimes you get them for free anyway.
I would recommend watching those replays for how rookies Goblins can cope with high TV. I would also point out that there's only a handful of teams that are up to the lofty heights of 2000+ TV, most are around the 1600 mark.
Speaking of which Jiiiim, we're up next aren't we? A 1300-ish TV difference I believe - bring it on!
(this is not a dig at anyone, I'm well aware that flings are *supposed* to be played with a 700+ TV difference, but this game is likely to be crazy - also I have never used Morg before)
I have 1300 of inducements. I'll be getting the tree, Morg, a wizard, a couple of mercs, an apo, some bribes and the rest rerolls.
Oh, and the babes too.
And the chef.
That's it though.
I can only have two star players though. Otherwise I'd have Zara as well!
Tier 3 coaching is unforgiving hence the immense underachievement of tier 3 teams in the Open. Since the more balanced LE roster set arrived the combined tier 3 record excluding my ‘flings stood at a paltry 13.8%, way below the 30-35% tier 3 par. Even worse those figures are significantly inflated by walkovers... think there have only been two legit wins to complement the handful of draws. Point is it is hard to get results. You are looking at losing 16/17 games this season if you perform at the same sort of level of your fellow intrepid tier 3 explorers. You need more realistic expectations while you are still learning the basics.
You are trying to run before you can walk but don’t fall into the negative mindset of assuming it isn’t possible to run just because you can’t do it yet. Yes Open tier 3 teams have massively underperformed but my ‘flings were quite the opposite, hitting the 59% mark and yes that did include 1000k+ inducements going towards a ‘fling triumph on at least one occasion. It is an eminently achievable goal when you know what you are doing but it does take a little bit of time to get there. Oh and even when you are you must still expect those occasional games when you can’t do a sodding thing :) If you are going to play tier 3 you have to accept that as part of the package that makes them fun. We play them because they fall apart... it is all part of the challenge.
