DETHRONER CONTEST

Post  sliv on Sat Feb 20, 2016 6:38 am

I would offer to run, but I just don't have time at the moment. In the last month I've had shoulder surgery, started a new job, moved, selling a house, etc. I actually have to type this with my left hand, and I'm right-handed.  Doing everything with one arm is way more difficult than I imagined. (Boo hoo hoo, and all that  Rolling Eyes ). I'm still going to one-hand-type some suggestions in case someone wants to run it.  jocolor

1) I recommend starting on turn 4, beating a warrior that hasn't at least won 3 in a row doesn't seem worthy of note.
2) Increase the points as turns pass.  It is more impressive to beat a warrior that has won 7 in a row than one who has won 3.  I recommend something like:  Turns 4,5 = 1 point, Turns 6,7 = 2 points, Turns 8+ = 3 points.  That way everyone will be in the contest much longer, even if you have a bad turn or two.

Thats a shame there won't be one this year. But it does take a lot of your time to run one of these tournaments, so hats off to the people that do.
I will probably throw a few challenges out there anyway as im nearly out of UW anyway!!

I was issuing UW challenges before Dethroner, and will do so whether it runs or not.

As I prefer random, single encounters, and rarely challenge, I think those that I do challenge will understand that it is all in the name of UW fun, and no need to spark any wars or whatnot. I certainly have some low hanging (but very odd) fruit still in the competition, and I look forward to the occasional challenge and hopefully shock and awe felt by the challenger.

Yeah kind of sick of getting my butt kicked by a net though.

What strategy do you even run net on??!??

Bash 9 is your best bet.   jocolor

Ok, ok.  CRUMMY runs a combination of martial, WoS, CA, and Parry.

Modofo, try throwing slash in there for a fun thing to try. I've wondered if those hooks could do some ripping with that strat and I haven't had a net guy in a while.

Theoretically, the point I differ with you on VIC, is that styles like Slash or TK or CA could be highly effective when mastered up, with the right race, strategy, weapon etc.

Being as you have taught me enough to be one of the better n00bs in the game, I accept you're probably right.

It's that 100/150/200 fight plateau you have mapped out eh?

I think slash is possibly the worst strategy.  I have tried it a few times in the early ranks and somewhat extensively with NAG RAZOR (bastard sword) in the upper ranks.  I stopped using it after review when I realized it had pretty much been a complete liability for 30 fights or so. jocolor

That being said, I think I will switch CRUMMY to slash when his opponent is weaponless.  Right now he is using CA at that time, and it really isn't exciting me for that.  We'll see what slash looks like.

btw, when you catch someone in a net it considers them to be "on the ground".  I'm not doing much with that right now, so maybe I'll try slash then too.  The problem is that slash is so slow, and its big damage is very hit or miss (mostly miss).

I have to be careful with him and weak strategies.  A 3 size/starting 10 con Halfling is just begging to die...

Entangling an opponent is fun as their attack rate is reduced. Maybe switching to a high attack rate strategy, rather than something slow like calc or slash?
