This tournament is part of the Living Tournament system. You are welcome to read this, play the scenario, and post your results (in that order). Place well enough, and you may just end up with a Living Tournament World Ranking!

Scenario: A Journey to Rhosgobel
Deck Parameters: Open Build*
Number of Players: 4 Players

Tournament Parameters:

1) This is a Living Tournament. You may play and post results at your own pace.
2) *Open Build means you may use any legal LOTR LCG cards at your availability.
3) A valid result in this tournament consists of reporting your results (wins and losses) from 3 back-to-back games (may be spread out over as much time as you like), using the same deck for each of those 3 games. (Please observe the mulligan rule, and all other rules, from the LOTR LCG rulebook and subsequent official FAQ documents.)
4) After you post your results, the results from your 3 games will be calibrated using the RGun formula** to obtain your Weighted Result.
5) Weighted Results will then be ranked against other player’s Weighted Results, and the rankings will be updated over time as new results are posted to the thread.
6) You may play this tournament as many times as you would like (so you can try out different deck builds over time), but you can only hold one spot in the overall tournament rankings at a time (i.e. this gives you a chance to try and best your own result while only occupying one spot in the rankings).
7) Do not cheat. Just don’t. It destroys the fun and integrity of the tournament system. If you realize you have made a mistake at a later date that had serious implications for a result you had posted in the past, please make a new post in this thread drawing attention to that fact – that past result will be invalidated, and of course, you are welcome (and highly encouraged) to try again.

**The RGun formula has been designed to value both Final Score (per game) and overall Win Ratio (from your 3 games, cumulative). The formula is: (Average Score of Games Won) x (Total Games Played/Games Won). For an expanded discussion on how this formula was created, you can read the thread called Measuring Success.

Heros used for each player: Frodo, Eowyn & Glorfindel (spirit) / Bifur, Denethor & Elrond / Theodred, Dain & Gloin / Legolas, Beregond & Thalin.

2 core sets and every expansion / adventure cycle.

Game 1 Result: FAIL
Game 2 Result: FAIL
Game 3 Result: FAIL

This has to be the most disappointing quest that FFG have produced. At no point did I enjoy this. This quest is a race to get an Athelas card before Wilyador has more than 5 damage tokens on him. After this the chances of getting 2 Athelas cards becomes harder followed by 3 and then impossible. On top of that the usual starting combination of cards on the first turn is a mix of The Necromancers Reach, Festering Wounds, Swarming Insects and Exhaustion meaning that Eowyn, Bifur (and sometimes Gloin, Theodred and Thalin) are dead before the end of the first round. I did get lucky in game 3 and not have a nasty first round of treachery cards, but I couldn't get hold of an Athelas card or a Forest Grove for love nor money. Nor did the lore deck want to reveal a Lore of Imladris for me to bypass finding an Athelas. As a result Wilyador eventually hit 20 wounds and died (again).

So conclusion….. a quest I will (probably, because you never know….) never, ever play again. If Radagast asks for my help again, my response will probably be: "just put it out of it's misery and cut it's throat…. I have better things to do. Killing trolls for one!"
