Gen Con 2022 Clan Trial of Bloodright
« on: 12 August 2022, 01:06:17 »
This year's Trial of Bloodright was for the Hell's Horses bloodname of Cobb. Turnout was good, with the Grand Melee full and the Trial with 29/32 attendance (but all tickets sold).

The Grand Melee was well-fought, immediately breaking up into four separate skirmishes. One notable event which will be turned into a diorama was the weaponless Ice Ferret landing a 27-point charge on the Shadow Cat C which was down to a single ERML remaining, dealing its third pilot hit, knocking it unconscious with a fourth hit caused by the fall. The Ice Ferret went on to charge the Black Hawk 2, but was destroyed shortly after. The other notable event was the Ursus 2 landing an APGR shot on the Nova H's open cockpit, killing the pilot even though the mech had barely taken other armor damage. Steve Watts was victorious in the Ryoken E, which was a late pick from the mech pool.

In the Trial, we had 6 total games that ended in a tie (simultaneous kill, or no winner at the 1 hour mark) and had to be decided by the GMs, which was better than previous years. The hardest call was the semifinal game between the Bowman 3 and Balius C. Heavy Fog meant that overall damage was light, with both mechs sustaining 88 total points of damage and one pilot hit each. The Bowman had 9 internal structure damage vs the Balius' 8, so the Balius was declared the victor.
In the final, with more Heavy Fog in play, the Mad Cat Mk IV's ferro-lamellar armor soaked a lot of ATM damage from the Balius, and partial cover absorbed much of the return fire. Eventually the Mad Cat managed to penetrate the Balius' center torso and gutted it.

Congratulations to the winner, Paul Bryan-Cobb.
