Postby ettiene » Wed May 02, 2007 12:33 am

Well day 2 went a bit better for me. Got 10 out of 14 bids placed. Probably needed to place more but i thought i would focus on getting the talent i needed to be competitive. Picked up some fairly good orcs. Filled up 1st and 2nd line centres and wings and some extras. Still got around 7k left so will hopefully pic up some more tonight. Still need 1 more 1st line Goalie :? Well at least we can all say its gonna be a very interesting league. Looks like the early favourites are Tune, Dizzy and Chance and Ice will probably be brilliant in the first period of all his games :lol:

I used the spreadsheet on this one. Very nice tool! However, I didn't get all the orcs I wanted due to funding and bidding. But for the most parts, no complaints. My 3rd string...well, they look like a third string, but they'll do.

Weak in the goalie area, and only padded armor, goalies are in Leather. This is way different from the other Novice leagues I'm in.

Looting went well, got a suit of Padded, but the healing bill brought me down to just above 100 gold.

Good luck to everyone tonight and looking forward to some great games!

Placed a couple more bids for tonight. Hopefully after auction i will have a full line up. Probably not gonna have much to spend on armor though but at least i should have some orcs that arent to bad. Think the most interesting game tonight is gonna be between Tune and Randomluck seeing both of them seemed to have done well in bidding and they also have the most orcs playing. Good luck all

I'm not sure what a third string looks like...

I've used it before and loved it.

Some-how though I mis-placed my original (clean copy) and the directions on how to use it properly... (clean up the source from the homelands into text)

bah.

So I'll go back to winning the old fashioned way I guess, by hand with scribbled bits of notes on paper.

:D

Day 3 of auctions: I picked up 1 orc, thanks to my looting prowess.

After the auction, and without doing any healing, the Administrators of Poverty now have.... 3 gold. Woohoo!

Tune's Parasites vs Chance Mwuahahaha

First day of games. I anxiously sign in, click on Games, Select TEXT.

"HAHAHAHAHA!" I laugh at Tuneloon's pitiful assortment of orcs! This should be easy! I whoop with joy when my guy scores a goal! I curse as one slips by. Painstakingly I'm tracking the score. I'm ahead! I'm AHEAD! I Wi...lose?

I scroll up and realize the pitiful assortment of orcs are MY orcs! I'm rooting for the wrong team!

Congrats on the win, Tune. Next time I'll be sure to check the titles on the page before scrolling down.

Preliminary analysis on our teams:

Mwuahahaha may have a good blocker-Wrisiga blocked three shots as a Defensemen. However, that may be due to the high number of shots the Parasites took.

Parasites outshot Mwuahahaha by 2:1 (46 Tune, 23 chance). Parasites managed to turn a third of those shots into goals. Mwuahahaha only managed to turn 17 percent of his shots into goals.

We seemed pretty even on hits dealt out: 205 for Parasites, 202 for Mwuahahaha . I can only hope that equates into a healing bill as high as mine (Almost 3000).

Both teams had 21 orcs get play time. Tellingly, The Mwuahahaha had to swap goalies, but he must have been one intimidating orc as the Parasites took only 3 shots on him during his 8 minutes of play time.

Overall, watch out for Tune's Parasites. They hit hard and mean to win!

Good game! Next up, Ettien's Creatures of the Night in three days!

Jack's Patched? Wha' happened to the Grumpy Old Men?

Ice: You have my deepest sympathy; that healing bill must look pretty awful right about now. :(

That was a stupid last minute name when signing up.

Today I was looking at the roster and seeing none were old.

And the lineups were patched up. So I had a "thought."

I don't care though. I can go back.

Or maybe we'll change names after every game.

What ever you lot like.

#@#$@%^$. i set the assistant to set up my lineup because i knew that i had some players that I would be getting and wanted them to play but it screwed me and i had just half of the first line in pads and like my third line had the padding. so, that sucked. your next BAP

Never trust the assistant to get your lines right.

As to me, well, my guys spent a lot of time on the sidelines. Setting tolerance to 19 does that to a team. I did have one suspicious death that's still under video review. He was a wing, the position where I'm weakest. But all my positions are fairly weak, so it's all relative.

The healing bill is far more than I can pay, a total of 2,480. So I am hoping for another okay night of looting. I'm sending out the orcs on my team who have 15 hit points or more.

At least I have three days to put the team together a little better before the next game. Of course, so do you all. We shall see!

my heal bill was just under 2500.

I am only sending out 7 orcs looting, but looting has not been kind to my team so far

Woooohoooo!!!!!

Brak 7-7 Ettiene

0:49: Hargijaw shoots and Woklufbew makes the save!
0:46: Woklufbew passes to Bemsoqik.
0:42: Bemsoqik passes to Yawposis.
0:38: Yawposis passes to Lidyemalt.
0:34: Lidyemalt passes to Hobkoyspa.
0:29: Hobkoyspa passes to Fixzinsy.
0:25: They play catch....
0:22: Hobkoyspa shoots...Hobkoyspa scores!

Final score:

Brak 7-8 Ettiene

Didnt expect to win that one. Figured brak would take it easily cause of the way auction went. Not complaining though. Good game brak. Seems like all our games lately are decided with less than 5 points. Hopefully we can give some of the other teams a tough time. Still think its gonna be tough season for us. After losing a defender last night i am really gonna battle filling the lines and getting armored up.
