Good match!Just finished the third match with hardco, after he won the first and I the second one.
It was a tense fight with me still standing after the dust has settled. Good games Hardco!
I didn't write down the scores from the first two matches. They aren't in my matches-screen anymore. The last one I won with 3 vs -7. Ok if I write them in challonge as one game with 2-1 score?
For a match description, the frst game had sjeng opening with a Ram, leaving me the decision between grabbing the Freighter, and leaving the Blob Destroyer and Blob Fighter available for sjeng, or taking the Destroyer for myself. I went with the Blobs, and sjeng grabbed the Freighter and put together a powerful base package. I stayed on the offense with Blob and Machine Cult and finished him off when he got stuck in a weak part of his deck. 33 to -4
Game 2, the starting cards were weak, with the best early buy being a Space Station. But with no powerful cards on the board, I chose to get two Explorers instead. sjeng picked up the Space Station, and unfortunately a Brain World appeared soon after. sjeng got that and soon things got out of hand... Is the Space Station always the right pick in these situations?
Game 3 had me with an aggressive deck again (blobs mainly with a Fleet HQ), with sjeng having a more defensive deck with Brain World again! With both of us around 20, I chose to eat 6 damage from an event instead of losing my Fleet HQ. If figured if I drew my Battle Blob next round I could finish him off. I didn't, and figuring I would be dead next turn, I bought all the cheap cards I could, hoping to trigger a card draw event. By some miracle, I survived the next turn (I think the only left in his deck was the Brain World), but I drew into some of the weak cards I bought the previous turn, and didn't have the firepower to finish him off.
