Re: NHSD Massacre in Michigan!!

An update on my status.

Call it 30% and falling.

I think I'm "out" for this one, sorry guys.

Have some unavoidable baby-related stuff happening same day and, no offense, it takes precedence

Re: NHSD Massacre in Michigan!!

Onacara... Most of us are more north or east of detroit, you will be south of detroit... however I believe pikachu is right in that area.

Anyone up for practice games at BlueDragon? With 800pnts and 24 spaces our armies are likely going to need some test runs... I have atleast 3 build concepts I wish to try out. As for when... when ever the most people can get together.

Re: NHSD Massacre in Michigan!!

Possibly, it depends on my arrival time.


I do have a friend that will be coming as of now, and untill further notice, so add another to the list.

Another thing I wanted to add, with the absence if the glyphs, I have noticed that me and my friends test runs on Embattled Fen and been bland. There is a lack of a urgency to control a certain area, so I just hold back the whole army and let a few go and remove most of the enemy force. I have played on Ticalla Sunrise and Turret Rocks at Gencon and can see that this is also not just possible but likely to happen that someone just holds back.So I don't know if this is possible, but maybe we could allow the use of glyphs.

Thanks!

Re: NHSD Massacre in Michigan!!

Hey everybody! Got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I will definitely will be there the bad news is that I have to take a test that day and so I might be running late and unable to participate in the tourney itself. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up. I will let you know more when I find out what time the test is.

Blue Dragon is on Mound Road just north of M-59/Hall Rd. It's a pretty nice game store (but they don't carry HS) with a lot of space for open gaming.

I'd love to get together at Blue Dragon, but time is going to be a real problem. I'll try to find a day or 2 that I can play and post it here later.

The problem is that glyphs can severely unbalance the game. Your point is well taken though. I will think on how to encourage more aggressive play.

Re: NHSD Massacre in Michigan!!

What if we take +1 defense,+1 common,+1 unique. We ,mix them up and set them out as map standard. We could add some more glyphs too, like the lucky 20 glyph.

Just an observation on the glyph discussion: the three maps mentioned - Embattled Fen, Turret Rocks, and Ticalla Sunrise - all indicate specific glyphs. Embattled Fen and Turret Rocks have both seen extensive play using their respective glyphs (Wannok, Astrid); Ticalla Sunrise has been played more often using random glyphs, but the limited feedback on the specified glyphs has been positive.

Using the specified glyphs eliminates the problem of random glyphs affecting the balance of the map. I do not have any suggestions for Hot Heights or Road Rampage, but at least for the other three this is a potential solution. Regardless of what is decided, I hope the maps work out; thanks for considering my maps for the tournament.

Something to consider, for sure. I love your maps. Keep 'em coming. Maybe static glyphs would work better on all of the maps....I'll consider it.
