Adam’s Frigid Birthday Bash Tournament Report

So for Adam’s (TheDiceAbide) birthday, we threw him a Frostbyte Showdown Tournament! 7 of us showed up to play and wish him many happy returns. Sadly, it was a odd number, so I didn’t get to play, but I got to hang out with Adam’s lovely wife and make snarky comments as our friends rolled some dice.

Table 1 – Only one TAG? I brought two!

Highlights

  • Erik: “It’s an interesting situation because there’s just… TAGs everywhere.”
  • Adam: “I think I want to bum-rush you with Pretas now, because you revealed yourself!” (JOTUM standing in for a Cutter)

  • VIRD spends most of a turn shooting the Pretas off the Cutter, wounding the TAG in the process.
  • VIRD takes only 4 wounds over two full turns… one of which was from friendly fire. The Pretas failed to do any damage.
  • 5 orders worth of shooting from a Raicho fails to take out an unlinked Kamau, and the Raicho takes 2 wounds in the process…
  • Turn 3, Zulu Cobra dies to a HFT in the face…
  • but the Cutter takes out the Raktorak and wrecks MAF in Turn 3.

  • Uxia lurks underneath the Wu Ming link…but gets discovered and dies immediately.

  • ISS does a lot of damage in turn 1. Ru Shi wrecks everything.
  • HRL Wu Ming finds a money shot from elevation and takes out the entirety of the Wallace link, which was hiding prone on a roof.
  • CHA has miserable dice in turn 1, but Jordan does his best to claw his way back up bottom of 1.
  • Rui Shi does all the damage this game. CHA can’t make an armor save all game.
  • Cateran does serious work against the Wu Ming though, taking 2 out with his T2 rifle and taking out some Celestial Guard as well.

I primarily play Infinity these days, but I have PHR fleet for Dropfleet Commander and I will eventually get my CEF for Heavy Gear built...
