Witch Division: Bracket and Results

Results for the Witch Division bracket are to be posted in this thread.

For each series post the overall winner and the number of games each player won. Please try to grab each game log from isotropic before moving on.

Here is the bracket for the Witch Division of the 2012 DominionStrategy.com championships: http://dominionstrategy.challonge.com/2012witch


Full rules can be found here: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=5686.0

Each round, you are responsible for finding your opponent and scheduling a game by the end of the week. You may mutually agree to any rules you wish to play by. If you cannot agree you must play with the default rules as follows: veto mode off, identical starting hands on, official point counter on, fully random sets, point counter extension allowed.

The first player in the first game is decided by whichever player is 'higher' in the Challonge bracket. For round one, this means the higher seed will play first. To accomplish this, begin a game in the tournament lobby and select the player who is to play first. After that game, you may both move to the Secret Chamber lobby (but don't exit Isotropic!) and the player to play first will be the loser of the previous game.

If you have trouble scheduling, please message me and I will attempt to work it out.

Have fun and good luck!

Leaving you with the classic dilemma what to fear more: the top seed player/team or the guy(s) who has(/ve) proven to be able to beat them?

First match in this division! dnkywin wins 4-2 against mharris717, but the match was very close (the each of the first five games was won by the first player).

Game 1: dnkywin 38, mharris717 24
Pretty similar strategies at first: Feast -> Double Witch, but his first Witch doesn't show up until after his second shuffle, so he spends most of the game playing catch-up (plus first player advantage).
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/03/game-20121203-143912-b2654ed3.html

Game 2: mharris717 6, dnkywin 4
IGG game where I have a 2/5 opening to his 4/3, but I fail to hit $5 a couple of times and he is able to snag the win off the last Border Village. (In hindsight, I shouldn't have picked up the penultimate Border Village).
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/03/game-20121203-143029-403ac827.html

Game 3: dnkywin 30, mharris717 18
We both open chapel, but for some reason he gets a council room instead of a torturer and doesn't pick up much money early on; I win the province split 5-3.
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/03/game-20121203-142515-93cd5dc0.html

Game 4: mharris717 42, dnkywin 23
My worst game of the match. I somehow think I can pull off a golden deck with Steward and Bishop as the only trashers and a power $5 (Vault) on the board, and I don't pick up a bishop until turn 12. Oh well.
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/03/game-20121203-144538-3692c26e.html

Game 5: dnkywin 35, mharris717 24
A fairly standard Masquerade game. I pick up Silvers instead of Highways, and I think that's what made the difference.
http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/03/game-20121203-145459-d195585e.html

Game 6: dnkywin 79, mharris717 43
Familiar game with no trashers. I win the curse split 6-4, then continue to slow him down by picking up 4 Ghost Ships along the way for an easy (but reaaalllllly long) win.

Congrats Knaacku. The 43 seed over the 22 seed. I believe that counts as our first decent upset.

I'll grab the log for the first game tomorrow morning when the daily tar comes out. For now, here's the video:

YouTube will probably take a while to process it, and it took over a half hour to upload. I have no idea if the quality will be acceptable either. This is my first time for all of this stuff. I will upload the rest when I get a chance, but it will probably be Wednesday. I'm looking for exactly what I did wrong (and beleive me, I did plenty wrong!)

And my opponent played extremely well. Watch out for him, this guy is dangerous! Marin, good luck with round 4 :-P

SphinX defeated me 4-1. I remembered 3 of the game logs, which I gave to him, but forgot the others. Anyone know if you can retrieve them after the game?

there are details on how to find the game you need here. i wouldn't worry about it for just one game though. i would encourage everyone to do their best to get each log, but if there is no dispute over the match outcome you would only need the log if you wanted to offer commentary on the game.

Log 2: http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/04/game-20121204-124620-10b92a2d.html

Some Comments on the games:

1: Kings Court madness. I think I get a bit too many Oases early on, then heavily invest into quarries, which net me 4 KCs in turn 12, which then allow me to closely get from 13 points behind to 2 ahead and 3-pile with 1 buy and $0 left, which took me some minutes to figure out.

2: W(alled)V torturer with colonies, my opponent gets an early lead, but I manage to get my engine going better than him in mid-game and even though i keep investing in duchies and estates instead of pushing 3 piles, he doesn't manage to catch up in turn.

3: Really close game with Vault.  mix in expand, and we to 1 estate and 2 provinces left with the two of us tied. He buys the penultimate province, which I think was a mistake, and doesn't manage to pick up the other one before i get it and the remaining estate

4: Goons and Inns with no real engine available. I go for Vineyards in addition and the game is too slow for us to really get into provinces, so those win it for me.

Thx for the matches, NewandForgive, i think it was a lot closer than the overall score suggests.

Titandrake wins 4-1

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/04/game-20121204-155156-eafe804c.html
IGG. I open 5/2 and go first, so yeah. Some fun Develop shenanigans here though. Buy Nomad Camp, Develop it into IGG + Develop, Develop that into Harem + Nomad Comp! khanh93 pointed out that you could develop Nomad Camp -> IGG + develop, buy Nomad Camp, and repeat, but no one did so.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/04/game-20121204-160457-de41cf5a.html
Another IGG game. I miss $5 on both turns 3/4, so I Embargo IGG to stop the snowball (albeit in a bad spot), then Embargo Duke when I see khanh93 is going for Duchies. Should probably have been Embargoed Duchy in retrospect. Try an amazing comeback attempt with a Xroads-Nobles engine (I'm surprised it actually worked as well as it did), but didn't quite make it.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/04/game-20121204-162241-f032776d.html
Really weird game. I try Remake -> Villages + Pirate Ships. Game completely breaks down, ends super close after ~30 turns with 6 VP Fairgrounds and everything.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/04/game-20121204-162736-008a9359.html
THIRD IGG game of the set. This time khanh93 gets the 5/2 and goes first. Except I get Woodcutter-Gardens as a fall back plan, so I'm not in nearly as much hurt. A bit of a shame: switch around a few cards and it turns into a very intricate engine game.

http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/04/game-20121204-163535-8f5235c5.html
Chapel, Tournaments, Nobles, and Bridge. Considered Bridge-Gardens, but it's way too slow here imo. The snowball starts rolling and it doesn't stop for anything.

The slogs in the middle part of the match are some of the weirdest + closest games of Dominion I've ever played. Thanks for the match!

greatexpectations over warrior297 4-2.

i took a 3-0 lead on warrior but then warrior turned it up a notch. took 2 straight and had me on the back foot for most of the last one. thanks for the set warrior!

game 1 ge 39 - 30 warrior297 - warrior plays textbook ghost ship/BM. i counter with a simple menagerie engine, thinning with lookout/traderoute.
game 2 warrior297 40 - 43 ge - inn, jesters, and harems. basically a mirror, and i think my inns made the difference.
game 3 warrior297 29 - 41 ge - witch game where we both open 5/2. i play BM and warrior cycles with mining village and throne room.
game 4 warrior 38 - 26 ge - i aim for margrave/draw engine and warrior aims for minions...but we embargo each other. warrior takes a quick lead as i try to build an engine and buys a clever midgame embargo to block me from catching up via duchies.
game 5 ge 30 - 37 warrior297 - warrior plays textbook double jack. i try out an engine, but i'm short on either buys or coin in the key turns and jack just kept going.
game 6 ge 43 - 32 warrior297 - this one got ugly. possession loomed large but silk roads was there as a counter. warrior builds the draw engine but ignores possession and i turn garbage into silk roads and skate by when warriors engine stalls in the final turns.

Congrats Knaacku. The 43 seed over the 22 seed. I believe that counts as our first decent upset.

And then LowPants (49) over Fumanchu (16).  Yet another decent upset.  This must be the upset division.  Marin falls in round 1? ;-)
