    Summoner Wars - September league

    Pacman is the champion of the September league, having defeated Boojum in the finals!

    The playoffs begin with a donnybrook!

    Code:
    The donnybrook
                                      W   L  
    
    Hereafter (Thenafter)             2   3
    Boojum (Hadrosauron)              1   2
    Pacman14 (pacman1477)             5   0

    soondifferent (soonanother)       3   2
    sjgold (ketasjg)                  1   3
    If you'd like to play, it's never too late to join! Just send me a PM that includes your Game Center name.

    Key: Each player's number of wins is given for each team. The maximum number of wins with a team is 9. Each loss is marked with an x.

    E = Phoenix Elves
    G = Cave Goblins
    C = Cloaks
    F = Fallen Kingdom
    D = Guild Dwarves
    J = Jungle Elves
    O = Tundra Orcs
    V = Vanguards

    Code:
                                            E G C F D J O V Losses (X = five)

    FAQ

    Q: Who can I challenge, and with what team?
    A: Anyone you want, and with any team! You do not have to post your challenges; we will assume that if you challenge another player in the league, then the game counts. However, if you wish to avoid mirror matches (where each player chooses the same team), you may announce your challenge and two teams that you might play. Your opponent should pick one of the remaining six teams. Winners should report the results in bold, including which race won the match.

    Q: Is the list ranked?
    A: Only in a ballpark way.

    Q: Will there be a winner?
    A: There will! We will have a brief playoff at the end of the month, and crown a champion. The final day for making challenges is the morning of September 25 at 2:45am.

    Q: Why is there a maximum number of wins with each team?
    A: Because you can do it! I believe in you!

    Q: How will we be rated at the end of the month?
    A: Your final ranking will be the total of your wins minus your losses, with the following badges applied:

    Code:
    [+4] Pull off a win with four different races - [+6] for all races
    [+3] Be the first to nine wins with a certain race
    [+2] Win a game against last month's champion, Pacman
    [+1] Win a game against last month's runner-up, Boojum
    Q: How do the playoffs work?
    A: The top six players (who have played at least eight games) by ranking (with ties broken by most recent match between the parties) will play each other in the usual ranked way (#1 vs #6, and so on), with the higher seed choosing to make the challenge or be challenged. The three winners will then play each other, and if one player wins both games, that player is champion. If there is a three-way tie, then the highest ranked person is champion.

    I'm out, too. The game is just not grabbing me like I thought it would. Maybe after I mess around with deck building a bit more I'll throw my hat back in the ring. I'm definitely up for the Trifecta tournament if that ever materializes.

    Got it, guys!

    I am rechallenging Pacman to the matchup we just finished in last month's playoffs, if he's keen on it!

    Yeah, these were effing bad. And not at the end of the game, either, where there might be some narrative and excitement. This last game ended in round 4.

    It's okay, I had a FK vs JE match where I died in 3 turns because I went 1-12 hits.

    Lot s of people are dropping out this month. Time for some cash prizes! ;-)

    pacman1477 (Phoenix Elves) defeats ketasjg (Guild Dwarves)

    Nice game, I don't think I have seen anyone else use Halvor before. Who was your third champion? I was worried about Thorkur or Gror coming out, but apparently didn't need to be ;)

    Hereafter (goblin) becomes Pacman (jungle elves) worst nightmare again
    +2 for defeating last month champ


    The last 2 rounds was unfortunate for you Pacman. You had 8 dices in my summoner and only scored 3 hits. I had the same amount and hit the same amount. In your position I think you choose the best course of action.

    Yeah, the dice were not with me there. I expected exactly what you did, but figured gambling on 5 out of 8 for the win was worth it, as you would pull Sneeks back as soon as you could. I am not sure I made the right choice in one way though. I also had Khan Queso in my hand, and both chants of haste. So I could have taken three plague shots with him (expected value 1 hit), and then between him, Makenda and chant of growth had 7 attack dice. I think that is slightly better than the 8 attack dice I got. The way I meant I still had a chant of haste for later use, but probably that was not worth it. Oh well, with the rolls I got, it probably wouldn't have mattered.

    hereafter (vanguard) def Dave Perkins (fallen kingdom)
    +1 for defeating last month's runner up


    The summoning surge + wall combo is tricky. Plus if you hit Kalon, you better kill him ;-).

    I miscounted how many moves I had on my last turn. Somehow, the number "three" is tricky for me. Too bad, because I was pwning.

    Indeed, I feel kind of bad about this victory, as the early game rolls you got were not friendly at all. Trust me, I know how you feel. Still, you made some great plays in the late game that kept it close all the way through.

    Vincent19 defeats Hereafter with Guild Dwarves in a challenge of dice!
