Rated 6 for beating the minmaxing scum!
Posted by harvestmouse on 2013-08-17 11:19:19
I think that if you want to hurt him, you have to hurt certain players. No point hurting that elf, he can replace him with money.

Also the 'I want to play at a higher tv, it's just getting there' line appears to be total fiction.

So which players should you be hurting?

He doesn't sack skilled cpombers, so hurting them will annoy him, but keep him at low TV. If he builds up 4 or 5, we'll see if he sacks some to stay low or actually play higher. The past suggests, he'll play at a higher TV, but forgo other skills to play with an even trimmer line up.

He does sack very nicely skilled DEs that get too high in TV. So hurting them (unless it's a massively special one, doesn't really hurt him).

I think you should be looking at the players that would annoy him. 2 skill players, are likely for the chop, so not those.

For me the ones that stand out, are when he puts +AV on a player or the one skill players that do have an input on the game. Right now, that's the Leader, followed by the Guard.

If I were you guys, I'd aim to hurt those. The leader is massive, he's giving him 2 rerolls per game. Aim for that guy.

Just kill pete...
Posted by Rabe on 2013-08-17 11:44:47
Alright, you guys got me so far to put him on my KoS list. :-D
Posted by harvestmouse on 2013-08-17 11:51:28
Killing Pete just lowers his TV, there will be another Cpomber to replace him.
Posted by harvestmouse on 2013-08-17 11:55:31
Jenga is of course another target. Here is what I think you guys should be aiming at.

Target 1: Ice
Target 2: Jenga
Target 3: Tonga
Target 4: (with 1-2 skills) Awesome

Posted by Roland on 2013-08-17 12:53:02
Veteran marauders are replaceable.
Legends take time to get.
Kill pete, then smell, then any MB...

Ice is retired! No RR!
Posted by harvestmouse on 2013-08-17 15:30:36
Yes, that's a great job done there, Quarion really did look at the big picture and hurt him where it counts. We can see from his last match report, he was a bit irked at drawing with the Ogres. And quite rightly, I would have been too. Why did he draw? Because he had horrendous luck, and no rr to correct it.

So we can see that not having a rr and having bad luck ruins the fun somewhat for him. Also he maybe forced to buy a rr instead (am I right in thinking he sometimes runs 1 rr when the team is light on skilled players).

So it's a win/win situation.

1. It may force him to buy a rr and thus up his TV.
2. There's a good chance if you keep taking his leader players off of him, he'll have worse than average luck and a. Not enjoy the experience as much as he would have or b. Not win the game.

Leave his Cpombers, they'll up his TV, and we've yet to see him sack a healthy one. Next go for his +ST player. I'm sure he'd rather have it, than have it killed, which is a great reason to kill it.
Posted by blader4411 on 2013-08-17 15:34:03
1) I typically ran 1 RR until the point where my BC was developed with Blodge + Sure Hands. Its good insurance, but past 1050k the extra 40TV for a RR vs Leader won't kill you.

2) I don't understand the +ST Dodge. What is that ever going to do? Fire him now!
Posted by Roland on 2013-08-17 16:13:49
I don't agree. It's the legend cpompers that win his games.
And because they're always lying down, noone can pomb back.
They will be getting a boot in the face soon...
Posted by smallman on 2013-08-17 16:20:12
blader my about page shows the team I want to make and includes:
1x ST4 tentacles, blodge, guard, standfirm

Getting +st on the first skill wasn't ideal, and I very nearly turned it down, block next to protect him, then standfirm, then tents, then guard
Posted by harvestmouse on 2013-08-17 17:11:41
He'll always have Cpombers though, it's a conveyor belt. You can see there are 4 or 5 players on that belt as it is. All you're doing is lowering his TV, where he is more effective and doing the most damage.

Taking his Leader away does hurt him, his chances of winning and enjoying the game. In my opinion, if he's not going to run with rerolls, this is the number 1 target. Also as smallman's stated what he wants to build with the ST 4, that's a good target too. As that's a long term project, there's no real hurry on killing him, as he's bloat at the moment. Any time before he can get Tents.

Also, since when did naming & shaming become socially acceptable?
Posted by Roland on 2013-08-17 17:44:56
So why retire a healthy dark elf star?
Posted by pythrr on 2013-08-17 18:17:31
bladder, how is this naming and shaming? the blog is celebrating a mighty effort by some underdog Ogres.
Posted by harvestmouse on 2013-08-17 18:35:09
'Also, since when did naming & shaming become socially acceptable?'

"Personal attacks and excessive abusive language is not accepted. Discussing other people's styles of play does not qualify as personal attacks."

Unless you are saying there's something shameful in being a minmaxer? There's nothing illegal in this blog that I can see.
Posted by Roland on 2013-08-17 19:19:08
So why not hire some big guys? You are more likely to roll doubles on them than double 6 on a marauder.
Posted by BillBrasky on 2013-08-17 19:19:30
Gotta agree with HM here...

Everyone does (or should) min/max to an extent... Usually it's called "team management."

When it's exploited, is when most people get upset.
Posted by Roland on 2013-08-18 00:15:47
Team management != rookie hunting
He's taking advantage of new teams/coaches.
The conveyor belt must fall!
Posted by Nightbird on 2013-08-18 01:26:04
Always a good laugh when that really tiny he/she manthing gets irked.
Down w/ min/max 2013!
Posted by Dunenzed on 2013-08-18 01:39:34
In conjunction with Harvestmouse's comments recommending we look at the big picture, it might be worth considering a counter the to real damage that smallman's team causes: the alienation of new coaches that experience a terrible abuse of their personal time.

I would suggest that if you really feel strongly about his preying on weaker teams and newer coaches then you PM the rookie coach if you see him playing against one. Taking the time to explain that most coaches are decent and that there are alternative options for play, linking to the 145 club, etc, might help reduce any churn that smallman creates.

Yup, Dunenzed - I've started doing this when I see his destroying a new guy, and letting them know that this is not NORMAL for fumbbl. Hell, it's not even normal for [B].

Good idea!

Should we have a template?
Posted by Dunenzed on 2013-08-18 07:47:16
Yeah, a rough template isn't a silly idea - and a forum thread that could be updated with the names of the rookie coaches that have been sent a message so that those that choose to be involved aren't duplicating efforts.

2 comments deleted, no personal attacks.

Seriously? My team was wrecked by this gamey crapteam. Just go look at my ogres. So I vent/celebrate and that gets called a personal attack and removed? That's pretty lame.

To clarify, and let's make this clear. Are you calling me lame for deleting a post and not taking any other actions when you clearly broke the site rules, which you've agreed to abide by? clarify that for me please.

My feelings about said team are very clear, but as all of us, I abide by the site rules.

Add +10k to the marauders price.
Posted by smallman on 2013-08-19 02:52:46
then no one would play pact birdbanger, might as well play chaos and get horns for everyone for same price, and there is no chance of fumbbl adjusting player prices anyway
Posted by birdbanger on 2013-08-19 03:52:38
True that. Maybe you could lower the price of big guys then again.

And well. At least I would still play them if they were 60k per marauder. People play even with goblins and halflings :)

Keep up the Ogre love. Bonehead may be damn frustrating but when they do a good drive every now and then or stop the oppo it is great fun.
