Scared CSM!

Post by Rivan on Wed Sep 15, 2010 8:53 am

I thought I'd share something funny with you guys...

In the current league I'm playing in, I joined in the 2nd week so I'm missing a game from Week 1. I've posted on the store's forum looking for a makeup game w/ anybody who's willing to play (any day/ any time after work) and my post has been there since last week. No takers.

Then another member (Space pups) made a post yesterday looking for a make up game. Within a day, the current no. 1 player in the standings (CSM) took up his offer to play in a few days.

Is it just me or is this CSM player avoiding a confrontation w/ Grey Knights? Razz Razz
Can't say I really blame him but I think its not very sportsman like. My two cents...

Ok, maybe I'm being a little bit harsh. I guess I was just thinking if the situation was reversed, I would be more than happy to give anybody a makeup game...won't affect my standing anyway but I can help the other person catch up.

Frustrating for sure Brother Rivan....but not really surprising when it comes to chaos.

Perhaps you should PM the "#1" player and ask him for a game directly....A challenge if you will!!!

I could see him being reluctant if he played Chaos Daemons. CSM not so much. Very strange. Perhaps the SW player is newer or easier?

I am officially retracting my initial opinions on this subject.
I was contacted by the player and he's really a good chap. Turns out he even has around 5000 pts worth of GK's Razz He never responded to my forum posts since we haven't actually officially met I guess.

Anyways, bad on me for jumping to conclusions right away Embarassed

Hmm, still what better way to meet someone than to play them Very Happy

Weird that he would be willing to play space pups but not GKs tho....
GK certainly dont get that many advantages against CSM unless they go heavy in certain daemon choices, or your list is tailored against them....

That being said CSM aren't really considered top tier these days either.

I LOVE you guys. GK are the nicest players ever.

There is no other forum where you can post something like this and noone says "WTF he's a douche" or "HELLZ YES WE ROXOR HE SUXOR". Theres no other forums where the author would them politely contact the person in question, hit it off, and admit his mistake online and be the better man for it. And i love the suggestion of, instead of doing crude and vulgar violent things to him, "perhaps we should, dare i say it, yes, challange him to an honourable duel! that will show that chap!"

seriously, i love you guys.

Truly BC Rivan only boast proudly of the Emporor's elite and the fear they bring. He is a better man to admit it and move on. Personally, I'd feel umpleasant to go against Abaddon and his entourage with BC Stern and a 5 man squad of GKT(close pts cost). Just some advice if he uses Ab, maybe with sacred incense and a couple thunderhammers(if wounded and not killed outright with a TH, Abaddon wouldn't be able to attack until the end of the next assault phase). After the first strike, whittle him down. The Emporor guides and we are the strike of the hammer.

Yeah, I've matched up w/ Abaddon several times and it has always been a mutual kill. Incense brings his Initiative down to 5 so my GM strikes simultaneous. It is almost better to assault Abby just solo or else my GM's whole retinue will die too Razz

I'm eagerly awaiting for one of these match ups to eventually go in my favor where Abby actually rolls a "1" for his weapon and my GM actually survives after force-killing him Razz
