VTES Tournament Report — English ECQ 2013

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a tournament report, partly because the results have been somewhat demoralising but also because time has been tight. Given a rare positive result tournament wise, I thought it worth posting.

This time round I decided to not change decks at the last minute and play one of the decks I've been playing and honing for some time — with a few tweaks for blood management and combat defense. It’s a fast Setite deck, that typically grabs it’s first VP quickly and then settles down to work through the second and hopefully third.

Counting cards? — No thank you.

So call me lazy, call me un-disciplined — but after playing and designing decks on Lackey, I'd find that when building them in real life I'd get card creep and end up with more than 60 cards. I also got tired of counting the cards each time I made changes to physical decks, so I thought I'd try find a solution.

I came up with the below PDFs:

Essentially each A4 sheet holds 30 cards (60 cards on the A3 version) and as you add cards to the deck you lay them on the sheet by priority or card type — simples. It may seems pedantic but I tried it last night when prepping for the Danish ECQ and it worked really well — it seemed to provide a better feel for the deck.

You can download the PDF's here:

     A4 (30 Cards) or A3 (60 Cards)

Let me know if you find them useful...

London League — End of first League

It's been a while since my last post, life outside of VTES has been busy — so asides from playing time's been limited.

So the results are in for the first London League and it turned out fairly close with only 2 game wins in it. Norbert took the runner up position with 117 league points and I pipped the top spot with 135 league points. Special mention goes to Boris with the highest GW ratio of 35% — very impressive and largely due to his deliciously filthy presence bleed deck.

Not sure about the next league and how we will work it, but this weekend there's a tournament at our local haunt The Jugged Hare from 12PM come and join us!

Final Standings:

London League — quick recap

Have had a hectic start to the year, so time for posts is limited. There's a tournament in London on the 23rd of February and we will restart the league afterwards. So only a month or so left for scoring points in this one guys!

A few of us played an odd tournament over the weekend. It was very low scoring — so much so that the final was cancelled and another round added. Well done to John Best for winning with 1GW 3VP!

Here are the results for the games over the last couple of weeks:
