Winning = fun for me.
Activating stunties is not encouraged at all, no inducements most of times.
The scheduler should be changed.

Just a higher level of fun...
When you win with stunties in the box... It's orgasmic.
Posted by MattDakka on 2015-01-11 13:54:00
And all the times you lose and ruin your win rate it's frustrating, not a fair trade.
Posted by Chainsaw on 2015-01-11 14:01:06
Will your win rate be on your tombstone?
No? Why do you care then.
Posted by Calcium on 2015-01-11 14:02:22
So 2015 is gonna be the same as before then Bill! Play the way that makes you happy mate, you don't need to justify yourself in any way here :)
Posted by BillBrasky on 2015-01-11 14:05:05
I'm all in!
I think Matt's a little confused.
But hey, it takes all kinds.
If I were a CR Cheeser, I'd play only Ranked I guess.

"Just a higher level of fun...

As I said about your last GLN article "Don't expect to always win if you're a good coach is you don't want to be frustrated, but if you play Stunties, don't expect to win at all." That will indeed make your victories orgasmic. ;)

Don't be so lame Matt! My CR fell by a full 14 points using Ogres... who cares!?
Posted by Nightbird on 2015-01-11 15:25:54
I vote for hobgoblin mutations in 2015!!!
Posted by MattDakka on 2015-01-11 15:46:17
I do care, especially because the scheduler sucks so much for stunties and nothing is done to improve it, while it would be so easy (reducing the noob protection to 15 games and/or giving a TV 100 modifier).
Posted by Carlo_Pellegatti on 2015-01-11 17:00:00
Since the game is not balanced for all races CR is simply meaningless!
But since all of us have a different way to have fun just enjoy it, and try to not be rude, never!

That is an impressive CR Gobbo. :D
It seems that you do not need to be a Legend to be a Legend on Fumbbl.

What means "owewa"?
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-01-11 20:17:08
Awesome, my gobbos will be ready to mechanically separate each one of them.
Posted by MattDakka on 2015-01-11 20:26:13
"owevva" is "however".
Posted by The_Provocateur on 2015-01-11 20:30:48
Pffft, Stunties are CR catalysts. I have 168.78 CR with Box Goblins. :3

Matt, if you're only having fun when you're winning, then why betray that by not maximizing your chances of winning every step of the way, from the teams you play as, to the division you're playing in, to the opponents you play? Do you want to feel you earned the win too or is that not important? Seems like quite the balancing act, getting 'quality' wins while maximizing your odds of winning by micromanaging your metagaming.
Posted by MattDakka on 2015-01-11 21:38:49
Because I don't want to win by choosing easy opponents, nor I like to waste time to find an opponent in Ranked, being unable in most cases of playing exactly the team I want to play (bash teams don't find games as easily as elves).
I like variety and playing different teams, not only the strongest ones, so I'd like to play stunty teams in Box without having the disadvantage of same TV pairing game after game.
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-01-11 22:13:31
It sounds like winning isn't the only condition for fun for you, why not run with that and enjoy the thrill of challenging yourself with a team that was designed to be a challenge? I'm nearing 100 games with Gobbos in the Box and while I've lost a ton, I've also played some of my favorite games of all time as them. When I look back on the time I've spent here, I'll be comfortable with the fact that my record is what it is and I spent a lot of time losing in the pursuit of winning. Sure winning is fun but it's obviously not the only reason we continue to play.
Posted by Lorebass on 2015-01-11 23:10:29
Now now guys. Matt has his opinion and at least is open about it. The whole point of Bill's post is to have fun. We all have fun differently. In fact I think I've played with him since before fumble on funnyfinger's site. Just all agree to play lots of BB and have fun!
Posted by koadah on 2015-01-11 23:26:44
I dunno if the blog is a 1 or a 6. Some people's favs will be chaos, nurgle & CDs. ;)
Posted by MattDakka on 2015-01-12 00:12:03
Playing hundreds of Goblin games would ruin too much my profile, and besides the profile, I don't like to spend all my time losing and letting my opponent have fun only because I use a tier 3 team, it's giving away free wins.
A stunty game from time to time is fine, but losing streaks are not.
I don't play to entertain my opponents with free wins, sorry.

I love using my Goblins. It does get demoralizing when people act like they are too cool for school against them though. I activated them to have fun and not to farm another guys team and that's how many Box people act. I just choose a different theme and different race regularity and go with that. I care less about winning and more about fun.
I /heart Bills announcement.
Posted by JimmyFantastic on 2015-01-12 01:46:51
I need to make another Nurg team so I can activate Nurgz/Nurgz/Nurgz !
Posted by cdassak on 2015-01-12 01:56:44
You dont have to give them free wins, make them pay for them :P

I cared for my CR as well, but after reading until here I care a bit less.

I title that game "JimmyFantastic loses pants, dignity"
