Star Realm F&F Tournament [Tourney Thread]


#21

Crap, I did! I forgot to go to Challonge and add it.

I’ll do it this morning


#22

@hardco, @halfvoid, @Jules, @johnl, @kennfusion, @geigerm, @whovian223 and @HolstenKnight qualified for round 2.
GL & HF!

REMEMBER each matchup is suposed to be a BEST OF THREE

How to report that in challonge?
Just put down the scores and “add scores”. Only pick a winner at the top of the dialog box when the Best of 3 matchup has been resolved in the end.


#23

Challenge sent to Holsten (everything but Gambits, right?).

I’m prepared to lose in 2. :stuck_out_tongue:


#24

Scores can’t be entered yet (although I have none to report yet). It says the second round hasn’t started and is tentative.


#25

Yep just noticed that too as Hardco and I just finished our first match.


#26

Ops, my bad…

Should be ok now…


#27

Just finished the match with Hardco taking one set and myself taking 2. Focused on scrapping cards as early as possible in the two I won.

Good games!

Challenge sent to Jlongo for the next match.


#28

I won against whovian, and I am a bit disturbed that I don’t know how I won both games. I saw you in front in both games with the better start. Plus I made several mistakes at the end in the second.
I was always proud that I could predict the outcome of every SR game after the second shuffle the latest, but this time I would have put my money on you and been wrong in both games :mask:
GG


#29

I have always been able to lose in inexplicable ways.

It’s a gift :smile:

Good games!

Edit: that being said, in the 2nd game, I think I would have had you if I had one more turn


#30

Yeah, the event that hit you for 8 or 12(?) because you couldn’t discard a card at that moment came right in time for me. I still don’t like the events, pure luck.


#31

Actually, you took the first 2 games! I assumed the third one was just for fun… Well played!


#32

At least the events are hitting both (most of the time)

Luckily not as skewed in balance as gambits are.


#33

@HolstenKnight I’m with you–not an events fan, either. If we hadn’t played all our other games with them, I’d suggest leaving them out of our (exceedingly likely) third game …


#34

The more I play the more I dislike events. Playing a lot of Quick Matches, I have found that I don’t mind Gambits so much. Yes, they can on occasion give someone a first turn Ark…but it’s really the exception.


#35

@HolstenKnight Ugh … well played in those last 2 games. In retrospect, I made an early mistake not scrapping my yellow hero for a card draw and a chance at the Command Ship when I already had 7 trade. That game went surprisingly quickly given the complete lack of red cards.

Challenge sent to @halfvoid for the first consolation match.


#36

Some verly lucky draws for me in our 3rd game, @geigerm. I realised going full damage for a fast end is my only chance. Glad it worked, GG


#37

Yeah, I wasn’t thrilled when I saw both of your Imperial Frigates come up in the same turn, but I can’t complain–I got my Blob Carrier and Trade Pod out together, too.


#38

The frigate is kind of my most loved card in SR. At least most value for low cost. and two, that came together two times, is half victory. As a salute I changed my avatar to frigate :grin:


#39

Again, in retrospect … wish I had grabbed the second frigate to go with my Imperial Fighter, rather than 2 fighters and the Trade Pod. But hindsight is always 20/20.


#40

I think Cutter is the best value card, but Imperial Frigate is a close 2nd for me.
