Humbled
I remember reading the rulebook as a child and I think there was a sentence saying something to the effect of 'there are many races but nobody can master them all'. We'll see about that I thought.

I certainly haven't mastered them, but 3,000 games on Fumbbl and several years of effort later and I've fooled some algorithms into giving me the 'legend' tag with every race in the Blackbox. It's been an amazing journey on what is one of the best sites on the Internet. Some races were a walk in the park whilst others were painful and probably took years off my life. In a bizarre sense, for a game of toy soldiers, this feels quite a humbling experience.



Thanks for being such fun opponents. Oh and MattDakka, you can put this in your pipe and smoke it!


p.s. I think Matt is great, just we've crossed paths on this shared goal several times and I think Matt had rightly said that goblins, halfings and ogres should be excluded ;)

Having known this has been your goal for some years now Harad...Well done!

Now what's your next challenge?

:D

Convince Christer never to change the algorithm ;)

You, humbled?

Congratulations!
Posted by Harad on 2018-04-06 18:34:34
Well obviously not that humble, I still posted about it.

Congratulations!

Fun times! Glad to see that you are clearly just a Super Star, regardless of what the race stats say... ;)
Posted by Harad on 2018-04-06 18:54:08
That wrinkle annoyed me but after the years of effort I couldn't be bothered to wait for that as well :)
Posted by Verminardo on 2018-04-06 19:03:54
Impressive work, well done! :)
Posted by cdassak on 2018-04-06 19:12:08
A true Legend, hats off! :)
Posted by MattDakka on 2018-04-06 19:20:33
Cheers, well done!
(making rings of coloured smoke like Gandalf).
:P
By the way, a badge on profile (a star with a B inside or another icon) for coaches who achieve Legend rank with all the races would be nice.

Wow.... !
Congratulations

Dat Ogre win% tho lol!

Congrats!
Posted by Harad on 2018-04-06 20:00:55
Lol, yes ogres were painful. We had a bad run of dice with them too which shafted us for the win percentage. It also didn’t help that most of the competition did it in an era of piling on or even when more ogres were allowed.
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2018-04-06 20:11:27
Weeeeeeee.

Now to convince Christer that with such a drastic change in the rules, CR should be reset...
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2018-04-06 20:11:39
ps. Congratulations!
Posted by SpecialOne on 2018-04-06 20:27:56
Impressive. A goal I will never reach or set for myself. Congrats!
Posted by Kondor on 2018-04-07 12:11:54
It also looks like you only need to play a few more games in Ranked and the grid will read legend from top to bottom.
Posted by Harad on 2018-04-07 12:42:04
This goal is too easy in ranked for it to be worth doing. That's not to say one couldn't make it hard but with picking games, the 'legend' tag in ranked can be virtually worthless.

Grats!

Someone once asked me what a FUMBBL wizard looks like. This is a FUMBBL wizard. Someone who is willing to do battle in every type of situation, and accept every challenge. Once in a while silly stats like this even confirm the awesomeness.

Red belt! Gratz
