    As I said the last time we saw this match-up...

    For teams, the win goes to: I Are A Rocket Scientist Squadron

    Consistency has been something I've learned about this draft.

    I went back and checked who I voted for last time because I honestly couldn't remember. Reread the arguments from then and I still agree with what I said then now. Winner is The Birds of Prey

    Don't remember who I voted for last time...but the way I think of the match is this. Jello has individual superiority, but the ability of his opponent's team to fly as a unit(TREMENDOUSLY important in space/air combat...Ventress hasn't even flown in a squadron before!) is going to be a HUGE advantage, and that should give them the win.

    Winner: Jew Unit(I Are a Rocket Squadron)

    Well, it's been good Jello. You put up a good fight.

    ...that must've been the fastest match ever. I wonder what happened in the middle of this whole thing.

    Congrats Typo. Though I did promise to kill you if you used a triple trump, so you probably won't live to enjoy your colors.

    Or something. :p

    Hey man, it's tactics! I thought you were supposed to be the tactics master!

    Agreed...with Typo having beaten you before in teams, you should have anticipated the triple trump.

    I actually overestimated Jello. I went all single in the first final match because I thought he would do some sort of trump busting move, anticipating me triple trumping again. When he didn't do that, I just went back to the triple trump.

    Oh, I fully expected the triple trump--hence my comment.

    It was more of a calculated risk. Trumping would be very dangerous--it would've only been worth trumping my better players, rather than a Varth/Ventress thing like before. That could backfire very easily--there was more of a chance of winning if either Pash or Phennir hit a non-Tycho trump. They could have broken the other two.

    Triple trumping is not very effective--all I had to do was bust a single trump to win. It's only good here because my team hasn't any cohesion at all. I've expressed that in this instance it wouldn't matter, but either way, if I had the slightest bit of cohesion it'd be a different story.

    Really, the fact that we've each lost once pretty much makes it up to chance. Triple trumping isn't necessarily a foolproof tool for Typo, and not trumping isn't necessarily damning for me.

    Yet the triple trump won it twice for me, and not trumping lost it twice for you. :p

    Yeah, but what would you have said if my Pash/Phennir trump landed on an autoloss? :p

    The real shock of the draft is that this messed up team even made it as far as it did. :p

    Well done Typo.

    So when's the next one (I actually want to win a match for once...)

    Oh, you didn't hear? The SFD took so long this time that the offer of a reward expired a long time ago. :p

    Spoiled colors eventually become cheese or yogurt!

    Edit: What I'm saying is: Give me my cheese!

    Agreed. There needs to be a new one so I can try out my newest amazing plan.
