Hello to our 6 competitors for the wild card! Here are the rules for this playoff, as outlined in the main discussion thread:

6 players:
- The players will be randomly seeded 1-6.
- The players will be grouped into 3 pods of 2 players each, and pairings will be as follows:

1 v. 6
2 v. 5
3 v. 4

- The winner of each pod (or loser, in the event of a contest for relegation) in the first round of the playoff will proceed into the second round, which will be performed according to a normal 3-player playoff.

A "normal 3-player playoff" is the kind where each player plays each of the others and whoever wins twice is the winner.


Each match will be one game, just like the regular season.


Here are our six competitors:

greylag (Cutter)
AtheistPanda (Frigate)
kolok (Frigate)
Messire (Frigate)
DCrossTL (Ram)
jbuergel (Screecher)


Pairings for wild card playoff, round 1:

greylag d. AtheistPanda
kolok d. DCrossTL
jbuergel d. Messire


Pairings for wild-card promotion, round 3:

kolok d. jbuergel
jbuergel d. greylag
greylag d. kolok


Pairings for wild-card promotion, round 3:

jbuergel v. kolok
kolok v. greylag
greylag v. jbuergel

Wheee! Challenged AtheistPanda. FYI, fellow wild-carders, I'm a no-expansion player, so just vanilla game for me.

So playoffs again for me, doing it the hard way... This will teach me to race harder for that Megahauler next time! (Messire might remember what I'm talking about )

It could prove to be challenging to complete this until the 21th of Sep.

I'm in the CEST timezone and do the bulk of my playing btw 18.00-24.00 CEST, checking the app many times in that period. Also good for a turn or 2 around 6.30-7.00 CEST. So I'll be available to play my 1st game in about 10 hours from now.

Good luck for everyone!

Hey, greylag, would you be so kind and beat Panda, he's a naughty one, steamrolled me in our Frigate matchup... Still hurts... cry
And please write one of those excellent reports about it for I can read it. devil

Sorry AtheistPanda, just jokin'. We were fellow div'ers with greylag during Season 10 in the Irons, I've come to like her writing and respect her playing since that time.

greylag, keeping it old school cool (I've got the physical F&F/B&B/Gambit expansions, but don't feel like paying for it online)

My son does the same (and will do in the league next season as well ) even though we've been playing with the digital Gambit exp. and also with Crisis for quite some time...

Remy... I'm all fired up for this 'an all... but, er... what is a wild card? What am I playing for again...? Is this promotion? Or championship? (seems like championship's started so I guess promotion?)

EDIT: Scratch that, I got it, it's promotion:

Whoo! Good luck. I feel like this is a borrowed opportunity so I'm happy however it goes - just glad to be getting in some more league play before the end of the season. That said, you should know I'm on a hell of a streak right now.

Remy, please help me with a dilemma.

What's the view of the league on the fact that, in the app, Mech World counts as a Blob card for the purposes of Blob World's draw ability?

I've just gotten a double draw off it in my game with AtheistPanda (I played Mech World, Blob World, then chose "draw"), and as a result I've got lethal damage on the board.

If I'd only drawn 1, as the designers have confirmed is correct (this is confirmed as a bug, in other words), I'd be 4 damage off lethal, and I'd also have 4 less authority (yes, it drew a Cutter).

What should I do?

My cards are all played out, but I haven't done combat yet, and I could choose to not scrap Dreadnaught, which would leave AtheistPanda on 5.

It's not going to be easy to recover the state (the Cutter has moved out of the draw half of my deck, for example), but I'm happy to have a go at it.

There wasn't a way to have only drawn 1 from it, because I needed to play Mech World earlier in the turn regardless before deciding how to handle Blob World (there was a red ally draw off Missle Mech I had to see the result of).

World class sportsmanship, er... sportswomanship on display!
Awesome, no, that is really what I think.

On the root of the issue itself: if it is indeed confirmed as a bug (how long/since when has it been acknowledged?), I'd like to politely ask - not you greylag - why hasn't it been fixed yet...

I wonder what Remy has to say about this.

Here's the reference for it being a bug:

jbuergel over Messire. The Ark popping up at the right time for me made all the difference. Good game!

Hey kolok and greylag, proud to see you two kept up the work and are fighting to join me in the silver tier (got second place in my div this time around, competition is getting real). I need to face off against you guys again.

But really, good luck to you all!! But I am totally rooting for greylag, DCrossTL, or kolok. (: cause got to rep my people.
