594Team RoboRally result of Game 20 of 22/02/09
- Mar 15, 2009Result of Game 20 of 22 February 2009 (Game 5 of 2009 season):
This game was 4th, 16th, 25th in the league versus 6th, 7th and 18th.
TomasP Won, killed by JeanF .. .4 pts
DaveB Won, survived, planted flag, damaged every enemy 7 pts
HannesS...Won, survived, damaged every enemy ..6 pts
JeanH ..Lost, killed TomasP, killed by board ..1 pt
RichardB..Lost, pushed TomasP into pit, damaged every enemy ..2 pts
BobR Lost, survived, carried flag .2 pt
This was a fun example of the game, characterised by cries of "Where the hell are you guys when I'm being outnumbered over here!?" (mostly from Bob, it has to be said..
Jean and Richard jointly killed off opposing captain Tomas in an irrelevant part of the board (according to panicked team-mate Bob); another way to look at it was that they did a fine job of killing off the opposition's best player (2008 champion); yet another way of looking at is that supremo Tomas sacrificed himself but took two of the bad guys away from the main action. A fourth way would be: it was all just luck masquerading as skill. All were true.
Anyway, Bob went for their flag, got it belatedly after clever defence by their Hannes. Meanwhile DaveB played "my best performance to date", dodged past Jean and Richard (leaving Tomas to tie them up), grabbed the good guys' flag, and waltzed round to plant it while Bob was still messing about near the enemy flagbase, with flag, wondering how to get past Hannes and get home too late. DaveB planted a flag for victory.
So, Bob's recent winning streak came to an abrupt and very predictable end.
That will change placings in the Eternal League and the 2009 League quite a bit, I'd think. Give AllanM time to note this post and update the tables, then you can view the tables under "photos" file. If it says 22/02/09, then it's the latest. I gather this photo file is only open to registered members? So, if you're one of those members of the ftf club who isn't also a member on the site, you'll need to sign up to the site to have access to "photos" to see them. OR, Allan might copy the update into a post for all to be able to view. Up to him.
It was a hilarious game once again! 90% skill and 90% luck.
