Apparently I’m about a month behind on posting event reports.
This year’s Battle at the Crossroads was on February 22nd. There were only 6 players for DBA, so instead of running a pyramid event, we ran a normal 3-round tournament, and ended with a 3-on-3 game “for fun” with the top two players as C-in-C of each side. The games were played with DBA using the 2.2+ extensions, and I had a new set of MU sticks made for the occasion.
|3-on-3 Battle at the Crossroads; John Loy and Larry Chaban.|
I won my first two games, against Daryl and then John Loy. In the last round of standard play, Larry finally broke his 2-year losing streak against me, and beat me. I’m officially no longer his nemesis. Sooner or later he’s going to have to find JM and beat him, since apparently Larry has never beaten him…
For the final 3-on-3 game, Larry and I were commanders-in-chief. My allies were the two players Larry beat: Mike Kaizar and Bob. Larry commanded John Loy and Daryl.
Everything was going well overall, but then Mike’s command broke on our right flank. Soon after that, Daryl’s command broke opposite Mike. Unfortunately, Bob broke before we could break the enemy, and it was all downhill from there.
The army selection was fun this year, with a biblical theme. The games were over quickly due to the low combat factors, which allowed us to fit in 3 single games and the triple game, and still get home at a reasonable hour.
This was a good event, but we need more players! What happened to the days of bringing 4 or more players from Pittsburgh?
