file TWD + Report: Finnish ECQ (Ropecon 2012)

02 Sep 2012 19:00 - 03 Sep 2012 15:29 #35783 by PetriWessman
  • Tournament: Finnish 2012 ECQ
  • Date: Friday July 27th, 2012
  • Place: Ropecon 2012 gaming convention, Dipoli, Espoo, Finland
  • Players: 71
  • Format: EC Qualifier (constructed), 3R+F
  • Organizer/judge: Petri Wessman
  • Winner: Randal Rudstam (see below for deck list)

This year's Finnish ECQ was run, once again, at the Ropecon gaming convention. While the attendance this year was somewhat lower than during previous years, it was still quite decent with 71 players participating. Most of the players were Finnish, but we did have some international guests also (Denmark, Sweden and France were represented by brave travelers).

This year the tournament was run at "Täffä" (TF), the building next to the main Dipoli conference center. This has previously been the domain of board games, but we decided to try to move card game tournaments there this year. While it wasn't totally ideal, being a bit cramped at times, I feel it was still a bit better than the main building -- if nothing else, the ventilation worked somewhat better. I got everything set up well on time, thanks to various volunteers on site (thanks, all!), and we got the tournament started more or less on time -- a concern, since TF closes for the night at some point.

I didn't see any one deck type dominate the scene. Oh, there were lots of recognizable archetypes being used, but even those often had some tweaks in them. Less Animalism than I was expecting, honestly... maybe everyone was expecting the Nana deck type to be too well known and prepared against? Not sure. The old staple of Dominate was everpresent, of course, but even that didn't seen to be as overwhelmingly represented as during some previous years. Overall, all I can really say about the decks I saw in general is: huge variety. This, in my mind, is a good thing.

The final round was an interesting affair; lots of action without things getting bogged down at any point. ıi]two[/i] Swedes made it to the finals, and the final win went to one of them (Randal). See below for deck lists and a transcript of the final round.

I would like to thank all the players for helping keep everything running smoothly, and especially the Finnish NC Janne Lönnqvist who was, once again, an immense help with everything (including providing everyone with a huge pile of promo cards).

P.S. Randal has a blog post up which also has some notes about the tournament.

P.P.S. I can't personally make it to the EC this year, our second child will be born this month assuming everything goes well, and I need to be at home to help with things (the first-born is only 1.5 years at the moment, and takes up lots of time also). Maybe next year. :)

Thanks, Petri, for running the tournament and for the extensive report, once again! Especially with the progenies eating up your spare time. And congrats to Randy, it's nice to lose to a man who´s always so jolly. (Some Swedish mind tricks, I'm sure. :) )

Here are a few comments on the Ropecon tournament and the finals from my perspective:

First of all, I have to say my luck was phenomenal all day long. I had crypt acceleration in all four games, I played Giant's blood in at least three out of four games, and so on and so forth. Some highlights form the prelims: In the first round I was one pool short of being ousted by Marko L.´s Week of Nightmares lunge, in the second round my prey and grandpray were contesting Stanislava, and in the third round I had to get my own Anson to torpor and diablerize him afterwards to release contested Pentex on Pascal's Shalmath (thanks, Pascal, for the tip!).

In the finals I chose to sit as Aleksi's pray as I was rather confident I could trump his deck without spending too many resources. I'll comment on some details of the game:

- I'm pretty sure the first round was as follows:
Michael: Zillah' Valley
Randy: Information Highway --> gets Washed by Aleksi; Zillah's Valley; Anthelios
Aleksi: trading Rrotected Resources for Wash via Anthelios
Me: Zillah's Valley (which notably didn't get washed)
So Aleksi didn't just discard his Protected Resources, but traded it for Wash to get some measure of control over the 10- and 11-caps popping up around him. I think he didn't know what he was up against or he might have played differently. Incidentially, he ended up playing the wash on one of my two first Villeins, which was pretty much all the pood damage he did to me during that game.

- One point that really defined the game in a fundamental way was the crypt draws: Toni didn't get his Govern chain, so he was not able to build up resources and rather had to start bleeding Michael right away. Michael, on the other hand, had his own problems with Unmada's no-show. If I'm correct he was not allowed to play a single stealth or combat card during the entire game. So with all those and all the crypt acceleration, he had hard time digging up his political actions which actually consisted a thrid (21/63 !) of his deck. And I of course had no Anson, which really crippled me as I had to choose between playing my pool gain masters and trying to outrace Radal's Ashurs to set up my deck. I also had to cycle through a lot of cards to get my first concealed / magnum and decking myself was actually somewhat of a concern in the back of my mind.

- I misread Michael's strength. At the time, I didn't realise the extent of his hand management issues and I really wanted to keep him in a tight leash. I guess this point needs some more elaboration:

I was afraid Michael would be baiting his time to be able to double-oust both Randy and me in a single turn (and as he was doing only moderate amounts of pool damage to Randall, using Dmitra's special and whatnot, it really felt he was slow-playing and trying to position the table). Also, I knew that he played Temptation of Greater Power and I didn't want him to have tons of pool when he would get Randall. And finally, I was confident I could hinder Tomi in a serious way shoud need arise so I was quite happy to give him some space to go forward.

- After the finals I claimed Tomi had to make the deal to DI Michael's Parity Shift, but now I'm not so sure. Considering Michael's hand management issues, Tomi woud have had a decent chance to win the pool damage race, especially with the DI in hand, even with Protected Resources and 14 pool in front of him.

- I didn't pay for Arika's special. So that's two pool from two turns with Parthenon in play. I guess it really was 2 a.m.

All in all, it was a really tight game: four out of five players had a very real chance to get the game win. Aleksi sort of ended up between rock and a hard place, but kudos to him for getting to the finals with daughters!

So this year's Finnish ECQ win went to Swedes. Perhaps we'll have the chance to get back at them in the Swedish Nationals, this time "with a bit more dominate"... ;)

Thanks for the tournament, people! :) And very good episode of C&E.

I was playing Al'Muntaquim (also mentioned in the C&E episode), and I'll have to admit that it was my first time playing against a proper Anson + Ashurs deck. I was hoping it would've been a Presence version once I got a hang of what was happening in front of me in the final game, but Celerity with guns was ultimately way worse than what I had even dreamt of. It was a very interesting game, however, as was the whole tournament.

I kinda had the same feeling as Adam about the finals - if I had gotten in, it most likely would've been a horrible rapeage, so I think it was better for me NOT to be there. Even more so because there were a couple of flaws in my deck which I figured out after the tournament, one of which was the relatively small amount of Outsides of Hourglass.

Great going, guys, and it was awesome to see so many good and interesting decks and players! Also got some great trades done.
