Tournament Time / Rush Report: DC*DC IV

ACK ACK ACK!

Translation: Assemble human scum, and read the data generated from another successful ‘District of Columbia DreadBall Cup.’

The Martians hosted another NADC event, the DC*DC.  An elite group of fearless Coaches accepted the Martian invite to play DreadBall in a daunting environment; WashingCon IV.  It was the fourth DC*DC.  It was the fourth WashingCon.  Coincidence?

Competing Coaches were issued a custom score marker. Presidential busts of Earth Leaders after colorful adornment from the Cyber Optics Red Team Division. Martians are funny.

WashingCon is a convention like no other.  Small, but sweet.  Crowded, but cool.  High priced, but high valued.  WashingCon is a convention that focuses on playing board games.  In particular, an abundance of family board games.  You cannot swing a dead Yndij by the tail without hitting a child at WashingCon.

There were 1,500 gamers at WashingCon IV. 1,494 of them were playing with either meeples, cubes, or discs.

DreadBall was an outlier.  It was the only miniature game present at the convention, disguised as a board game!  The Martians are tricky, mischievous organizers.  In a bout of counter programming, gamers far and wide came to witness the spectacle of DreadBall demonstrations and a tournament.  Flyers were distributed, and mints were consumed.  Three veteran Coaches entered the contest, and three brand new Coaches learned to play on Saturday in order to compete on Sunday.  Now that’s moxie.

The calm before the storm at WashingCon IV.

Not surprisingly, the rookie Coaches got messed up against seasoned competitors.  But the winners were generous, the losers were eager to play in the next tournament, and the folk in middle had playbook criticism.  So it goes.  The Supreme Leader marked these rules and results:

The 2018 NADC rules pack was in effect.  In short; Team builds were 1,200 mc.  No Giants, no transfers, no Ronnie Rejects, and no “We Can Rebuild Him.”  Team Captains, support staff, and generic player advancements (one per player at 25 mc) were allowed.

He may have lost, but Juan grabbed some loot! MOST BRUTAL, a set of BreadDoll dice, and THE INFAMOUS BREADDOLL! Good job killer!
IMG_8431
Hunky Dave takes home a girl. In Gold. FAN FAVORITE!
IMG_8433
Wes was SUPPOSE to attend a gaming lecture at 1pm. He skipped it. Why? SO HE COULD PLAY DREADBALL. And that Coaches, is BEST SPORTSMAN.

The Tournament Organizer and BreadDoll co-editor got to play! THIRD PLACE.
IMG_8432
Coming off an undefeated season of league play, Brett suffers his first loss in over ten games. SECOND PLACE.

Geoff nabs BEST PAINTED with a clever Sphyr team. The highlight? A magnetized Guard arm and head that can be swapped for Keeper upgrades. An impeccable build, coached impeccably. Good job old chap. FIRST PLACE.  Geoff’s win grants him a pass to the National Competition in March of 2019.  FYI – right after Geoff builds and paints his upcoming cyborg team, the DreadBall Rules Committee will adjust their rules.

And so, the North American DreadBall Circuit comes to a close for 2018.  Or does it?  If another golden ticket to the National Championship at Adepticon 2019 is on the calendar, let us know in the comments below.  Otherwise, keep the brushes swinging.  Keep the Slams brutal.  Keep the Strikes blistering.  May all of your sixes explode, especially when you’re playing against this Geoff character…
