UnbelievARR,
I thought for a while about the title. It could be 'CheatARR'. It could be 'LuckARR'. It could be 'WinnARR'.

And maybe all would be true. I was challenged Here by ArrestedDevlopment to Sprint in B with an ARR race to raise moneys for Christer and FUMBBL. The ARR races are the 8 least played races in B, though it was always incredibly likely that I wouldnt be getting my hands on High Elves, and some even know I have a fair amount of experience with Pro Elves. nope, it was always going to be a stunty race.

I agreed. People pledged money. Far more than I thought. I'd expected maybe $150, if we pushed it hard. it was quickly double that. So instead of one sprint I agreed to two. With Flings and Goblins. Despite playing over 5000 games here, stunty races had never tempted me so these would be my first 32 games as a stunty coach. I decided to plunge in with no research, read no tactics guides and spectated no games. I just launched in, curious as to what would happen.

This has been done before, though a single sprint, and that one ended with a 4/4/8 record. I felt that was ambitious, but I could see myself maybe scraping a few wins. No one said I couldnt be a munchkin and use some hires and other tricks to try and get the odd edge here and there.

But I got really lucky. Really, really lucky. And it went rather well, i think.

The full details can be found on my prior blog Here, with a brief note on each game and links to them. But in summery:

My Halflings: Chronicles Of PC, UnbelievARR ended 6/4/6

Halfings are shit at BB, there is absolutely no denying it, they have no damn right to be on a BB pitch. i consider it a minor miracle that they ended 'even' and teams like this, with winning records in B, impress the hell out me. In R, less so.

My Goblins: Covenant of PC, UnbelievARR ended 9/4/3

Thanks to a great early run and some key luck the Gobbo's had a cracking time, while they too are terrible at BB, they are, to my mind, markedly better than Flings. Maybe I just got luckier, but I don't think so. I think they deserve to be counted as a tier higher than Flings.

In total my first 32 stunty games end 15/8/9.
I am amazed, I enjoyed myself thoroughly in almost every game, even the hopeless ones, and almost every opponent seemed to have some fun too, even a few who lost. Someone who ought to know called me a filthy lucker with stunties. Another said I had done a few things differently to normal. Both are probably right, and i shall at some stage write a Forum thread throwing out a few ideas and see where i was going wrong.

But a BIG thank you to everyone that sponsored the run, whatever your motivations. Also to everyone who played me. I had a blast.

Now pay up.


TLDR?
I've had a long chat with your Mum and she's leaving your Dad for me.

Great work! If nothing else, stunties give you some great perspective on what "hopeless game" means. It does help to go into it with the right attitude. :D

My own box flings are 7/6/54, so more wins than PC! Woohoo!

The box goblins are 11/4/41, which is also more wins than PC!

Now where to collect my prizes for being the best coach EVAR?

Wait, it's accumulative, right? Surely.

TLDR. Daddy?

And each team only faced dwarves once. How disappointing.

You have my admiration sir. Well played.

Well played. Those scores are very impressive. I have learned some great new strategies from watching your games, despite what you think you are still an amazing coach even with races you have never played!

I hope you enjoyed your small descent into stunty madness!
Posted by Harad on 2016-12-19 09:09:41
Well done thought you played them great. Sure you were lucky but that wasn't you playing bad it's just what is needed with stunties: some. questionable coaching by opponents, some great matchups, some good dice and pushing the little guys to the limit. Grats!
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2016-12-19 16:54:18
Paid up! And I know a few paid in advance. But will get another blog out mid-week to remind more.

Very well done on the sprints. Neither finishing as losing is impressive no matter what luck it may or may not have required to get there.

I doubt your flings will ever grace the pitch again in such regularity to challenge the Bluebay Crammers' box supremacy (https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=722154), or at all... But is there an outside chance we see your goblins grace some ARR brawls? ;)

Congratulations on the results and for taking the journey!

do it PC! Inducements in way lopsided matchups is where the real fun is! :D
Posted by Verminardo on 2016-12-19 20:27:53
So, 9/4/3, does that beat cdassak's all time record?

At any rate, good job!
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2016-12-19 20:39:34
cdassak went 11/3/2 for 52pts.

PC looked to have a shot at equaling 11 wins having started 8/0/1, but the box is the box.

Thank Nuffle! ;-D
