House of Cards- Results

Post by fingers630 » 2012-07-30

I just want to thank everyone who helped make the House of Cards battle a success yesterday. I apologize for the late arrival, Soulo and I missed the Chrom road turn off and ended up in BFE 35 miles South. I have never had such severe road rage.

Kudos to the Elidorians, Laconians, and other individuals who gave up 2 team fighting to set up the forts before the event.

Thanks to Beth, Rich, Steve, Wulf, and the injured Ched Guy for being the Elders for the event. Bitching seemed minimal.

Thanks to Soulo, Malkin, Valfryn and Cailen for stepping up to be our 4 kings, as well as the Queens, Jacks, Jokers and Aces in play. If Croaker decides to dress in Drag next year, Ill allow him to be drafted as your Queen Gary =P.

The Scores:

Round 1:

The Clubs jumped out to an early lead completing their Joker's Quest, and killing 7 Nobles.

Clubs: 27
Diamonds: 23
Spades: 22
Hearts: 18

Round 2:

The Spades faltered greatly in Round 2 as the rest of the pack swarmed.

Clubs: 55
Diamonds: 49
Hearts: 43
Spades: 32


Round 3:

The Clubs forgot to kill the other team's Face Cards while the Hearts poured it on.

Hearts: 76
Clubs: 72
Diamonds: 53
Spades: 36


Finally, there was a 5pt bonus provided to the King which best exemplified leading his force on the field of Battle. While all four Kings did a great job sallying forth from their keeps, wading into the thick of battle, and making their presences known. The King of Clubs was the only King to fight from start to finish, and by far had the most RP with his club shaped axe and Royal Surcoat.

Therefore, the final results of the battle are as follows:

Clubs: 77 winner
Hearts: 76
Diamonds: 53
Spades: 36

Congrats on a hard fought victory. If you were a member of team Clubs please find me next battle so I can get you on the reward list. This is based on the honor system, and I will check names with your King and Elder.

Thanks again to everyone and I look forward to running again. Suggestions are always welcome. Here are some changes we will be impimenting in the future:

- Battles will be 4 Quarters, each Quarter being 20 min long (instead of 30)
- Battle will be in the Spring or Fall, (no 100 degree days!!)
- More Joker quests, 1 per Quarter (they seemed popular)
- Better identification. We are looking into having surcoats imprinted with the 4 suits, ala "pennies"
- Possible different abilities. Feedback from the Face Card people?
- Central Hades location. Due to the heat and limited Shade, Hades ended up being behind 1 fort. We did rotate the fort, and gave discounted hades time to the people far away.
- Hades time reduced to 1 minute (more fighting!!)
- Adventure Rules in effect. Some abilities of course would need to be eliminated (Gaseous/Sanctuary/Growth) but what do people think about this? Or was Normal Battle Rules fine?

Normal battle rules was fine. Many of the Adventure abilities can really stifle melee, and the 4-way constant melee was part of what made this event so much fun. I was playing a Mage, and I still had plenty to contribute without Gaseous, Pouch, and Growth.

I think maybe to make teams more readily identifiable, allocate a color to each team, like:

Clubs: Red
Hearts: Blue
Spades: Yellow
Diamonds: Green

And do those as cloth headbands. Worked well for Dag @ Rag on the 4-way battles, and none of those colors are in use as headband armor in Darkon.

Injured guy was from Chosen Blood, not Ched Nasad.

Very hot day. Very good fighting it seemed.
Some people needed to be corrected on some things, but thats what Elders are for.

Team Spades,

Heads up guys, we knew from the outset we had no chance and we held our own in a lot of fights. I'd be on your team any day.

pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers

giant growth on kings QQ

Seriously though,
thoughts/ suggestions:

Only have face cards worth half the points unless they are killed by another face card,

have face cards not have the option to be rezzed if slain by another face card

all face cards need to wear a sash or something (other than joker) to denote as such

Have a smaller team number, rotate out people that get gassed/ move about sides a la ditching. The player flux was obscene at times

I would even run 10- 15 min periods, the number of which would be determined by field presence

Have players not respawn until they leave hades and then touch their own castle (or a center point of the map, because some of us didn't have a castle to come home to at times)

Slightly smaller map

Have flags need to be turned in together to count and keep them active the whole game. Example: I need to carry my own flag AND the enemy flag to the flag elder for scoring, the flag elder then returns the flags at the end of the spawn period of hades.

Grant flag carriers a boon and a handicap , based on each flag, suit specific. Example: The Red teams are immune to something but vuln to another, the black teams have the opposites. Immune to AOE, Double damage from projectiles. The other is immune to projectiles, AOE has double radius VS flag carrier or something... who knows.

I would suggest a team ally rotation. each period, the 2 team switches.

If you really wanted to make people sweat, after calling the end of the match, let the game play out until A:elimination
B: one king is left on the map

I would be on team spades again, hands down. Thanks for the event, Fingers. We all agree it was worth the 3 hour drive.

Sorry, Hearts, for screwing you out of the win in the last few seconds....not really.

See you dudes soonish.

Counting the 2 people who have posted here, I have had exactly 2 people step up to mention they were on team clubs.

Winning team members will receive 1 potion or scroll of their choice, good for 1 year from issue date. I will not be at the Aug 26th event, however if you let me know what you want, I will most likely have it for you at the 9/9 event.

Also, each royal card will receive a get out of hades free card, one use only. please let me know who the:

Jack (i understand there were 2 as Inox took over)
Queen
Ace

of clubs were.
