So part of Aftermath Winter Open Day was a Guild Ball tournament.
This was the part of the event I was most looking forward to. Admittedly I predicted the top 2 and was spot on, I was hoping for 3rd or the very least top half off the table, my first game I drew Eds Alchemists and same as the Athena Open resigned myself to getting gutted.
Needless to say Midas proved to be just as much a thorn in my side as he always has in the last three meetings me and Ed have had, needless to say mine and Eds story will continue as we seem to be well matched, it’s just when I loose, I loose hard and quick.
The rest of the tournament was pretty much the same, I just couldn’t hit my stride, nor did it seem that could roll any form off decent dice.
So after Eds Alchemists pretty much took me out in three turns I went the distance with a brewers team which saw me loose badly again.
Followed by another brewers team against someone who had only had a few games, by few I think he actually meant two before the start off the day. I thought I would be in with a reasonable chance but in this game I fell foul off the special rule of the day.
Slippery Pitch, due to icy conditions and sprint action must be followed by a dice roll. on a roll off 2+ nothing happens and your turn continues as normal, on the roll off a one you suffer the knocked down condition. First charge was fine, second, knocked down, brilliant I thought I had it out off the way and steamed forward to end at least one turn with every player on my team flat on their backs.
3 games and three losses, probably my worst tournament result in anything, the good thing about that though is the only way is up.
