A cherry picker's cure, part II: Patient discharged.
As you know from my previous blog entry, my Undead Team "Austrian Glory" accepted a challenge: I shall exclusively face superstars and legends with this team, until i manage to win 5 out of 10 of these games. Since that blog entry i only needed 2 wins within the next 4 games in order to complete the challenge. This is what happened next:

Victory against Eddie2112's pink skins: https://fumbbl.com/p/match?id=4075996

Victory against spinball's chorfs: https://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=match&id=4080155

It's just fitting that the last battle was the most brutal one. I had my foul heavy first half, and he answered in the second half with so many cas, he almost managed to paddle back all the way. In the end i had enough turns and bones left to do the game winning TD. With this victory, my challenge is over, i am free to play some cherries agai... ah, äh, wanna say, i am free to play whoever want's to, and of course i won't do any cherry picking... :-P

Thanks everybody for accepting playing against my "Austrian Glory", see you soon again on the pitch!

So I get this right? You usually are cherry picking matches are this is your way to make amends?

So what for you is a 'special challenge' is for the rest of us just regular fumbbl in ranked without being an ass.

Congratulations... i guess

Well done on not cherry picking for a while ML. Also I always like to see other coaches doing match reports.
However what would be great is if you actually adopted this for your regular play! Don't go back to the dark side already.

Thanks, garyt1! Yeah, don't worry.

Hey Fancypants, i didn't know that you also exclusively play legends and superstars, trying to get 5 wins in 10 such games. With which team did you complete this challenge?

Well done buddy.
Posted by spelledaren on 2019-08-03 02:03:28
Hehe. Well done!

Thanks! :-)

I consider you a good coach and an enjoyable opponent.

But reading your blog and then seeing your 5-0 vs a CR141 coach in the recent games list is just silly.

My advice would be to be yourself and have fun playing however you like it. There is really no need to prove some sort of morality to me or other anonymous internet guy.

Thanks! Hey, but don't interprete too much. ;-) Nobody else would play at that moment ( and opponent challenged me and he was aware what he's up against).

The best cure is retiring all your Ranked teams and playing only in the Box.
If you really can't refrain from picking, do it where you gain no CR, in League division.
Posted by MenonaLoco on 2019-08-03 18:02:46
Sounds interresting, but i'll go with no grazie. ;-)
(If you are so eager to tell others what to do, better get a pet.)

If you don't want to be told what to do better not writing blogs.
Learn to accept criticism.

Ladies and gentlemen, MattDakka: rolling 1's on "Personality" since the dawn of time.

/me gives meno the attention and pat on the head he wanted from this blog

MattDakka, i know it's difficult for you based on your repetedly shown lack of empathy, to tell the difference between constructive critizism and telling people what to do, so i may offer you some basic knowledge:
"The best cure is retiring all your Ranked teams and playing only in the Box." - this is more like giving an order. You have been called out twice for it. You reaction: "If you don't want to be told what to do better not writing blogs. Learn to accept criticism." Again, giving order, 2 orders to be precise. So, i don't know what's your issue, but i am glad i don't have to deal with it to a greater extent than exchanging some written lines here. ;-)

I came here just to downvote you but 23 coaches beat me to it, so you got a 6 instead. Dont know what the blog is about though.
