Game 4 vs gary_graham's Orcs: 2-0
Gary hadn't really played BB since the first GT in 2003 (NAF 1121), didn't have a firm grasp of the current rules, and didn't have a great roster (NoS and HMP on a thrower), and yet I really had to work for the win. My BGs failed 50% of their nega-rolls, I skulled and 1'd regularly, but after day 1, I just needed a win, so I took whatever came my way.
Game 5 vs mathias' Orcs: 3-0 (3-2)
See game 3 vs Firebreather? Reversal of this - orcs left the field regularly, those that didn't were stunned a lot. My BGs still misbehaved, but thankfully not at important times.
Game 6 vs 'Dook's Vampires: 2-1 (1-0)
Sub-titled "'Dook goes to Chumpton" - let's face it, I stole this one from Grum. Up to this point, his vamps had been very good on BL, and my BGs had been awful n nega rolls. Turn 2, Grum kills a thrall, and so it went on. At all points in the game, he'd done more damage to his own team than I had, and for most of it, he'd done more damage to himself than he'd done to me. He scored first, I had to push to equalise in T8, and even then I had to rely on a Troll to move unaided, and for a Mino to move. 2nd half, I received, and slowly made my way up field. Had to keep moving from side to side, as his bloody vamps kept getting in the way. Eventually had to go for a 1D Block in turn 7 to score, as I couldn't keep away enough (and that was only because Grum failed a rerolled Gaze to allow a 2D Frenzy Block on my ball carrier. He had 2 turns to score, put up a defence, but he couldn't make the catch roll, so a 2-1 win for me. Only failed 4 BG rolls all game, and 3 of them were rolls where the player couldn't actually effect anything.
Overall, a 3-1-2, and 10th (or 11th) place, which was a marked improvement of 21st (of 22nd) when I started the day.
For interest, I beat Moody's record of failed BG rolls, which annoyed him as well.
Orge: Failed 8 of 61. (Before anyone questions my lack of use of the Ogre, it's because he died in T3 in one game
Mino: Failed 23 of 69.
Troll: Failed 15 of 63.
