Tournament that is. This Friday, the 14th, will be my first ever tournament, and its a Steamroller 4 Tourney. 750 Points. You might remember me talking about it before when I was discussing my list options. Well with 2 days to go I am locked into my 750 choice, which will be the same list just with either Grim or Calandra at the head. I am expecting about 16 people to be up there to play, which according to the Steamroller 4 Rules will be 4 matches, with a turn limit of 12 minutes, and a game length of about 2 hours max. I have never played in anything like this. In fact the only tournaments I have ever played in before were Magic the Gathering Prerelease tournaments, which I sucked in to be honest.
So I am sitting here going…I got a lot of questions! Gday of Lost Hemisphere is of no help for once, as he has not done a Steamroller before either! So I turn to you, the wonderful readers, to answer my questions!
1. How long should I expect this to go on for? I know its starting at 10am, and I kinda need to know for diet reasons (being Diabetic SUCKS)
2. What kind of lists should I be on the lookout for that could give me major trouble (given my Trolls you know).
3. I have never performed under a time constraint. Any tips on how to deal with it?
Any help given would be much appreciated. I am actually very nervous now about this tournament, and expect to face some stiff competition that is to be honest probably much better players then me. We shall see!
