So Gencon just completed. I signed up for the open tourney like last year. My 3 other people did not show. So team Lone Wolf was formed. After a tough 1st round I scrapped thru with the lowest passing score. Round 2 went much better and I finished 6 pts behind the leader getting the 4th spot, Going to the finals. A crazy awesome finals results in me tying last years champs for top score! Unfortunately tie breakers lost it for me. What a rush to control 4 characters for a timed 2hr session. It took a lot of focus and oit of the box thinking. I might not have won, but I stand proud of my efforts.


Woah! Kudos.
I can't help wondering if on balance every team should be required to have the same number of players, not just characters, because there are definitely pluses and minuses to having more or fewer - but, seeing as how it was born of necessity here, I'll just say: that's mighty impressive.

Thanks! It is suppose to be balanced. 3 people bought the tickets to the event. But they were all no shows. They gave me my choice to not do the event at all, or fly solo. Challenge accepted.

I'm amazed! Four characters on one person under a timed session, and doing that good. Really amazing accomplishment!

Awesome job!!!

I was silently cheering you on Lone Wolf! I was at another table during your round 1 and saw you were setting up to solo it. I had wanted to see if you needed help but was with my SO who was still learning the game and I couldn't abandon her (Well, and I was already in the open so i doubt they would've let me join anyway, especially with the stacked decks).

Glad that you were able to make the best out of the situation and rise to the occasion. Major kudos!

Congrats! We were all rooting for you! (I'm the "other" box runner for the Open)

I don't want to disqualify teams because one team member had a last minute thing.

I'll write up a full tournament report sometime today (I hope) since I had the perspective of a lot of teams, though not all of them.

I look forward to it!

I really enjoyed watching the Open from a distance as well. Lots of positivity and fun had by all the tables!

I feel you. I had the same thing happen to me at PaizoCon, but didn't do nearly as well. Bravo!

We were all really excited to see you do so well. I think that you had one of the strongest strategies for this open, and the fact that you didn't have to convince anyone else to do it certainly helped! :)

I have described this situation at least 20 times since Gen Con. It was a wonder to watch.

Thanks for the compliment. I wish I had been in such a zone playing in the finals. I didn't even realize you were there until it was too late. I really wanted to talk with you and thank you for all the great times I've had playing PACG. So many great memories!

I wouldn't have interrupted you for a bone-in filet at Harry and Izzy's.

We heard about a single player taking on the challenge - and advancing - but did not realize you had made the finals. Serious props on that!
In hindsight, I think you may have been seated at the table near us for the noon slot on Sunday. :)

We were actually hoping to recruit a fourth player when we showed up for our first round on Friday, but I think we were the only table that slot (at least, there were no single players looking for a table, as there had been in the past).
I ended up playing both Merisiel and Kyra, which was a ton of fun, if challenging (esp. in the first round when Everything was new to us).

It's a shame the final came down to a tiebreaker.
As much as I liked the scoring approach (and the event in general), it seemed the top teams were always within a couple points of each other - a surprising lack of diversity there.

Along those lines, a note for next year - don't tell the players in the second running of the final what the teams got in the first. ;)
One of our players reverse-engineered that score and laid out a boon-acquisition goal for us that could have given us the win, had Ezren not had a baaad final turn and closed his location.

Not to derail the thread (further, heh), but I have to say my only real disappointment at Gen Con was the lack of an ACG Special. We had so much fun playing it the last two years. And would happily throw out the Open/Gauntlet if it meant we could do something like that again.

Cheers!
