The Massing at Osgiliath (2 Player Living Tournament)

6 posts in this topic

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: The Massing at Osgiliath
Deck Parameters: Open Build*
Number of Players: 2 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.

OK - lets get this one kicked off. Having just received his copy of this quest my friend John and I played 3 games using Skype.

Heroes: Gimli, Gloin, Bifur and Berevor, Eowyn, Dain

Game 1: Score 151 (Threat 29+37, Damage 3+2, Round 8*10)

Game 2: Score 142 (Threat 37+41, Damage 1+6, VPs -1, Rounds 6*10)

Game 3: Score 148 (Threat 42+44, Damage 2, Rounds 6*10)

Weighted Score 147

The decks used 1xCore and access to all AP's up to and including Khazad Dum. They were both dwarf themed decks using very few spirit cards. Both had 1 copy of unexpected courage which was normally played on Berevor. We cancelled 1 "when revealed" effect in the 3 games. Zigil miner was played in 2 games but never used for mining, only as a quester or blocker. There were no clever combos, just good solid dwarves and well matched decks.

I our first game we killed off the Witch-king on the turn it came out (using grim resolve to refresh all those who'd been off questing). In the second 2 games we engaged him but didn't attack, we simply quested like mad (about 30) and trusted to luck to finish the quest stage in 1 go.
