Tournament Time / Rush Report: C-4 2018

The 2018 North American DreadBall Circuit’s C-4 is a wrap!

DreadBall’s second edition presented an opportunity to retire the former Mid-Atlantic NADC event, and create something new.  And so the Martian sponsored District of Columbia DreadBall Cup is demoted to a “non-ranking tournament” while the Cocoa Castle Corporation Cup (C-4) emerges as the new DreadBall.com “DGB Regional Competition.”

The NADC’s DC*DC / 2015 – 2017 / Blood was spilled

Those resilient Martians are a prickly bunch, and their return to hosting DreadBall tournaments will undoubtedly be filled with vengeance, mayhem, and slaughter.  There is speculation of a themed contest featuring an epic host finale for the top seed…

Konrad Castle’s Chocolate Empire had a humble debut on Sunday April 15, 2018.  Six Coaches brought the pain with a modified rule set* from the 2018 UK DreadBall Championship.  All participating coaches received a custom set of Home / Visitor cards as well as a Chocolate Castle delicacy.

Delicacy may be a kind…

*No MVPs were allowed.

Veteran and rookie coaches rolled dice, and team captains made an appearance for three teams!  First introduced at Adepticon’s 2018 League in a Night competition (sponsored by the BreadDoll), the power and versatility of team captains is something to behold.  Their greatest attribute may be a matter of debate, but there’s no doubt: access to extra and unique cards, buffed stats, and assistant coach capabilities offer a lot.  However, those benefits do come at a high cost towards team construction.  Any team captain is going to have a mark on their back.  It’s a good thing tournaments have resurrection between rounds!

EDITOR’S NOTE: I feel access to additional cards are the Captains’ greatest strength.  While a TC’s cost may seem prohibitive, consider that two cards are worth 150mc.  With that calculation in mind, the most expensive TC seems more acceptable, and the least expensive is practically a bargain!  Beg to differ?  Let us know in the comments.

This BreadDoll editor didn’t get a picture of himself with his 2nd place certificate, so here I am getting knocked around by Brett’s Lucky Logan.

Well played Coaches, and many thanks to DreadBall’s regional FLGS home; Victory Comics in Falls Church Virginia.

The BreadDoll’s next sponsored tournament is another DGB Regional Competition!  The NADC’s classic Origenes Cup will launch balls at 9am on Friday June 15, 2018 at the Origins Gaming Convention.  The BreadDoll hopes to see you there!
