2019 Basegame League - Round 2
« on: January 30, 2019, 02:40:09 PM »
Round 2



The full list of all fixtures for Rounds 1 to 11 (including results from previous rounds) can be found here: http://tournamentscheduler.net/schedule/NzAwODE4MjQzNg (but please don't play any of your opponents from any future rounds yet as we're going to take it one round at a time).

Please aim to play your match as soon as you're able to, but let's aim to have the round wrapped-up before the end of next week (Sunday 10th Feb). If we finish earlier than this, we will of course move on to Round 3 without any further ado!

Good luck to everyone; and when you do get round to playing your match please don't forget to post the results and any screenshots you have here on this post! Thanks C:-)

Having been nearly the last to finish round one I am pleased to be the first player to finish game 2.

Bekse 80 Riker 74
Riker 110 Bekse 94

The first game was two tiles away from completion with Bekse set to win when the game disappears. We agreed the score would most likely have been 80 - 74. Bekse cleverly created a 50/50 chance to guarantee a big farm and I could not catch up tinkering around the edges with other points. Sorry, no screenshot because the game seemed to stop working.

In game two I feel sure I had much the better of the tile draw as I kept seeming to get pieces I needed while Bekse got long runs of unhelpful tiles. As a result I was able to dominate a big farm and add extra cities to it near the end.

I feel like I am playing a bit slower than my two opponents so far. Sorry in advance if you feel my play is slow!

Well done for getting your match played so quickly guys!

The first game was two tiles away from completion with Bekse set to win when the game disappears. We agreed the score would most likely have been 80 - 74. Bekse cleverly created a 50/50 chance to guarantee a big farm and I could not catch up tinkering around the edges with other points. Sorry, no screenshot because the game seemed to stop working.

That's a shame. I assume you were using the online server when it crashed? When games crash on the online server it's sometimes possible to save the game (Session - Save Game or Cntrl + S) but you can only load and continue them if one of the players (or a third party) is able to host from their own laptop. It's not a big deal if you were that close to the end and could both agree on a likely outcome, but it's worth considering for next time...

I feel like I am playing a bit slower than my two opponents so far. Sorry in advance if you feel my play is slow!

Don't worry about that until you get to the world championships and are playing with timers ;)! Some of us like to make sure everything has been considered before placing our tiles, others are more instinctive and play more quickly. In a friendly but fierce competition like this, everyone should be considerate of this.

Here are the results for the Round 2 games between  :red-meeple: MrNumbers and  :blue-meeple: dronedrone

Game 1 -  :red-meeple: Mr Numbers 84  :blue-meeple: dronedrone 92
Game 2 -  :blue-meeple: dronedrone 62   :red-meeple: MrNumbers 78

Game 1
dronedrone built up an early lead with some small Cities and smaller Roads maintaining this advantage for most of the game.   The latter part became a contest for a 12-point field with dronedrone out of Meeples and MrNumbers poised to take it but, unfortunately, as is often the case, the right tiles went to the wrong player and the game ended with an 8-point victory for dronedrone.

Game 2
A similar pattern to Game 1 but with Mr Numbers taking an early lead and trapping two of dronedrone's Meeples in Monasteries for the rest of the game.   dronedrone pulled the tiles that MrNumbers needed to glom the big City and spent his energy in an epic battle for what turned out to be a 21-point field which MrNumbers won with four Farmers to dronedrone's three.

Thanks to MrNumbers who stayed up until around midnight to finish the second game.

Another close match ending in a draw. I am posting the pictures and Jack is doing the clever bit as I am old and worn out after 2 tough games of Carcassonne.  ;D

Unusually both games were away wins.

Game 1: JackFace  :green-meeple: 64 v TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 71
Game 2: TheSteveAllen  :yellow-meeple: 97 v JackFace  :green-meeple: 107

Thanks for the match Jack and best of luck in the rest of your matches.

Hey everyone. Just checking in to thank everyone who has already played their games, and to say that Leven and I will be playing our match on Thursday evening.

Any news from either Rosco/ Sinscerly or Halfling/ LaplazadeCarcassonne ?

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the first leg of my match with Leven has been played. We hope to play the second game either this evening or at some point over the weekend.

laplazde cannot connect to jcz on thesteveallen or his own laptop.  We'll need to postpone until his connection is fixed.

I could not connect remotely in the game with Halfing and I do not understand it. He stayed like this forever
