Gen Con 2018 Trial of Bloodright
« on: 13 August 2018, 23:19:39 »
This year's Trial of Bloodright was for the Clan Snow Raven bloodname of Howe. The Grand Melee and Trial both had full attendance again.
I was unable to note which mechs were taken the first three rounds, or take photos, but I did get photos from the rest of the rounds.

Congratulations to Bryan England for winning the Howe Bloodname!

Code: [Select]
Round one had several games that went the full 60 minutes and had to be resolved via GM judgement, including the toughest call we've had to make in 6 years.
A disconcerting number of Hunted players selected Trace Atmosphere as the environmental condition. I'm not aware of any instances of the 'breach on 12', but one mechwarrior died when his head armor was breached. Also, a mech fell in water with an open cockpit, killing the warrior.

Round 2 had a mech die with an open CT and Trace Atmosphere.

Round 3:
Player 1                Player 2               Winner
30(Kingfisher B)        ??                     30
28(Highlander IIC)      22(Mad Cat H)          28
17(Thor H)              ??                     17
9(Loki F)               32(Vulture Mk III B)   9

Round 4:
Player 1                Player 2               Winner
22(Mad Cat H)           17(Thor H)              17
30(Kingfisher B)        9(Loki F)               9

The Mad Cat vs Thor fight came down to a GM decision at the 60-minute mark, with each mech missing an arm and having taken a gyro crit. The Hunted player had selected blank maps and Freezing Temperatures, so they were not shy about engaging.


Round 5:
Player 1                Player 2               Winner
17(Thor H)              9(Loki F)               9

The Thor player was Hunter, and chose the mech he was using and what his opponent was using.
The Loki player arranged the maps, and chose Freezing Temperatures as the planetary condition.

The game was hard-fought, with the Loki wearing down the Thor's CT armor with ERML and LB-X pellets, while the Thor player managed to land only one HLL over 10 turns, with 20 shots taken. On turn 8 the Loki managed to breach the Thor's CT and scored 2 engine crits and a head hit. Two turn later the Loki scored a third engine crit, ending the game.

This was my first Trial of Bloodright and I had a great time. I was happy to get out of the first round. I hope to get to do it again next year.
