Interesting Effect...

Postby Seth » Fri Dec 29, 2006 8:35 pm

In my game this evening, I was playing a team with very few orcs on it. In short order, the opposing team had only one orc on the field--a goalie.

I expected the insane scoring to commence, but it didn't. The opposing goalie made one save, and then proceeded to chew up almost an entire period by winning faceoffs, which called for new faceoffs, and so on, and actually slowly crawled all the way across the field solely through faceoffs. I never did win any of those faceoffs.

Anyway, eventually he got tired and left the field and I started scoring like crazy. But I thought that was an interesting (albeit temporary) stall tactic.

That happened with the same guy with me. Do you mind taking a couple of games off on games 14 and 15, trying to sneak into the playoffs. ha.

Hmm...slip me a couple of pieces of plate armor, and we'll talk... :D

Actually, based on the current standings, you're holding the #4 place already, right? So you should be in the playoffs if you can just keep that up...

Yeah, it's an interesting league...a lot of the teams are very evenly matched. Hoping to hold onto a good seeding, but not sure if I can...

Good luck to your team!

Quite a few good teams in that division. Marc's and Sharon's teams are doing quite well. And my team has horrible luck against Greg's team for some reason, even though they don't do that well overall.

well, maybe I can sneak a game out of our series. Greg is who I'm battling with and we have back to back games toward the end of the season. Hope to get a little bit of a lead before then.

Don't sell yourself short--my team is quite beatable. You could probably take both games with a little luck.

Gah...sorry about that! But I wouldn't give up hope too quickly. I think my orcs were just really "on" this evening.

So, good luck in two days...and then, I hope, see you in the playoffs...

Yeah, from the way it seems you do hope to see me in the playoffs with a whipping like that! I'll try and make it a little more competive in the next game. I hope!

Eh, any team can have a really good day. I won't be the least surprised if our next game is a lot closer.

One difference I note is that my team has a lot more armor...could that have something to do with it? There weren't any knockouts, but perhaps your best team wasn't able to stay on the field as long as they would have liked.

Gah. Well, I got the win, but you also killed my top wing, which is going to hurt for a long time. So, hopefully that's some consolation. :D
