Here's the ten level of pickers, how picky are you?:

1. I am the ANTIPICKER.
You offer my legend coached, 2500 dwarves rookie halfings, I say no, I send you a PM explaining that it's a bad matchup and create an all snotling team to make sure you have the advantage.

2. I like it rough.
I see your farmed chaos. Bring it. Just bring it. My elves will play them. Rabe and Madvig, my heroes.

3. Fair dinkum
The match looks sort of fair. Let's do it!

4. As long as...
I'll play most things but before we start I just want to check your team stats. What's that? You've played against elven union for the last 10 games and this looks like your 'major' team. No thanks.

5. Wind at our backs
The game's got to be a little bit in my favour. It only makes sense. Otherwise it would be called Blackbox.

6. Clawpombers
If you've got that dirty clawpomb/clawmb stuff I'm out. It's just not cricket.

7. Mighty blow is mightier than the sword
If you have more mighty blow than me, forget it. For a 7.5, if you have more than 1 mighty blow also forget it.

8. Only handled with cotton gloves
Not only am I allergic to mighty blow, but dirty player brings me out in a rash. What do you mean my team has 8 mighty blow, 7 tackle, 3 dirty players and only plays elves? It's skillful to pick my games such that I don't need to waste skills on guard.

9. CR beware
Even if you satisfy all of the above, if your CR is higher than mine, no way Jose. For a 9.5 I won't play anyone above 150.

10. I win again!
I research your username and if there's any suggestions that you are a sentient being, we can't play.

Gave it a 6. I don't mind losing so much, but I really am a pixel hugger, with the exception of playing against teams like Schmerztal Darkbones or the Newscasters.

edit: Oh and most of the people who answered the poll so far are lying scumbags Smile

I used to be a two, I hope. At least I tried to be.

But I found myself getting pickier and pickier with the new gamefinder, maybe a 7, sometimes even drifting down to 9..

And I didn't like that about myself, so I switched to Blackbox and haven't looked back.

I chose 9, but didn't read the explanation until after having voted. Now that I've read it, I would have chosen 5. But it varies. I sometimes face uberchaos willingly with my elves (I admit, probably not against a star coach or better). Generally it's not only skills I look at. If my opponent has all his positionals and I have three positionals MNG I will probably refuse, even if TW is similar.

Usually 8. On bad days 9. Too lazy for 10.

Voted 4.
Generally if the coach is obviously new I offer easier matchups (I don't really have killer teams in R) and to other coaches it depends. Often R matchups are after a couple of box ones, so you can be clawed out and not in the mood. Some coaches are so much fun (yeah, it's about that) that I would give them an advantageous matchup, others never offer fair matchups so they won't get the same.

I'm a mix of numbers. If I add them together, I get 12?

I gave it a 3. BUT! I know my own weakness, so I usually stay out the ranked division, as I can be tempted to pick. When tempted it is better to go all Box.

How about a 4.5? Coaches rated above star intimidate me on the field so I usually don't pick them. (Although I'll sometimes green light if they pick me and aren't known pickers.)

13. Endboss of the Gamefinder
I have a small group of coaches I prefer to play against who number amongst the lowest win% on FUMBBL. I rotate my schedule so I am rarely violating the 1 in 10 rule, but simultaneously restrict my opponents so that on the almost unique occasions I do play someone vaguely competent the game is entirely in my favour. The prospect of me activating in the Blackbox is the punchline to several jokes.
