Steamcon USA LCQ- Recap with Brewers
Guildball
  Well it’s been sometime since our last Explosive Brew, which I blame on SFG for constantly evolving the game of Guildball. It has been a few days since Steamcon USA and I’ve been able to collect my thoughts and sobriety and recap my LCQ tournament for you. My 10 for the tournament were: Tapper, Esters, Scum, Spigot1, Friday, Hooper, …

Guildball
Hey folks, this will be the first of a new series of articles from Diceotfirstdegree and published on MidwestWargaming. If you’ve been following DotFD since the Warmachine days, you’ve already seen a lot of my batreps since that was most of my content. Guildball takes a bit more to write up though, and a lot more pictures, so I’ve really …
Interview with 2017 Guild Ball World Champion, Alex Botts
Guildball
Alex, by now everyone in our hobby has seen your face or heard that you are the 2017 World Champion of Guild Ball. But I’m not sure if everyone fully appreciates the truly herculean feat you accomplished to get there. A quick recap:   Friday, you jumped into the 83 person Guild Ball meat-grinder that was the LCQ and came …
Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates – All Guilds Overview
Guildball
  I’m really spamming this formula, aren’t I?  There’s one more too, the Hunters.  That’s only 4 new players and they don’t change the statlines that much, although their playbooks contain more momentous options.  Nobody cares about those guys though.   The Blacksmiths and Farmers are upon us.  While most of the Farmers were in the book, the Blacksmiths were …

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates – The Farmers
Guildball
  I’d say the update is somewhat overdue, except that we only just got the final Farmer card spoiled this last weekend.  As quickly as Steamforged modifies the game, or rather, as sporadic as the updates are, a true figure analysis is going to always be behind.  In fact, in compiling the Farmers and Blacksmiths (Coming soon), I didn’t even …
Butchers (Ox) vs Engineers (Ballista) battle report
Battle Reports
Dan’s Butchers Rich’s Engineers Draft decision process Fillet is absent on purpose. I prefer Ox as my Butcher’s captain because of his easier access to KD, his ability to impact the game even when he’s not activating via The Owner’s aura and his overall influence flexibility with ranged character plays. If you want a deeper Ox discussion check out this article …
The Concept behind a Guildball Lineup
Guildball
Guildball’s a weird game when it comes to the genre it fits in. Technically, it’s a tabletop miniatures game. Most of the players (as of right now, but the demographic is changing) come from a tabletop wargaming background like Warmachine or 40k so it kind of fits into that category at the moment.
