Guild Ball

Guild Ball is the game of medieval fantasy football from Steamforged Games. The Century War has wracked the land, and all that forges the fractious nations of the new Empire together is the blood-sport of Guild Ball, brought together by the scheming Guilds. Will you play the slippery Fishermen, the arcane Alchemists, or the suspicious Union? Read some articles, listen to some podcasts, watch some videos, and maybe you’ll find out which is best for you!

Klaw plays Trolls: The state of the faction

Posted by on 3:25 am

Hello there, dearest of readers. What I try to put into words here is the state of the Trollbloods faction, the way I experience it today. Please don’t take all my words here as gospel – the idea is to share my thoughts, and maybe inspire you, dear reader, to explore the faction further. Before we start though, let me say that I’m not a great player. I love to think of myself as a top half player, but nothing more. No top quarter, no X-and-1, and definitely not a tournament winner. If you’re looking for the insightfullest of insights, there are other voices in the community. As an additional aside, this article was written before Lock and Load. Still, I haven’t heard anything that would invalidate the thoughts below, so … here goes! The Trollblood archetype Traditionally, Trolls have always been the faction to take it on the chin and hit back harder. Attrition is the name of the game, if you’re winning with Trolls, it is because you’ve eaten your opponent’s army. We could reminisce about the beautiful days of MK2, Runes of War, the Miserable Meat Mountain, and perhaps Elementary Evolutionism, but someone said on Twitter that nostalgia is a drug your brain produces to cope, and that’s probably true. For most of MK3, that archetype of play didn’t really work. In the early days, there were beast heavy lists with Ragnor and Doomy2, and infantry builds with Madrak2. Madrak2 got nerfed, themes came, and Trolls slipped down the curve. The archetype returned for a year or so, after the Northkin CID in the fall of 2017. Madrak1 with all the champions did have that methodical approach, the emphasis on careful positioning to limit the effect of your opponent’s alpha, obliterating them in return. The sweeper play style of Madrak1 was very well complemented by the likes of Kolgrima or Borka2, who would hold their own into matchups Madrak1 didn’t like (guns, mainly), and for a while, Trolls were on everyone’s radar. It does feel like I’m talking about events that happened years ago, but Trolls were still very much a thing at last year’s WTC, some 10 months ago. Still, that’s where I felt Trolls had had their peak. The meta shifted, medium bases, healing and clouds were everywhere. Tech became readily available, catching Trolls in the crossfire. Once more, our archetype became unable to provide suitable answers. A new hope I went to the Welsh Masters, the largest single player event in Europe at 190 players. I had no idea what to play. People told me I needed Kolgrima in Band of Heroes so I could deal with Tharn. Or so they said. I did bring a Kolgrima BoH list, it’s really a sad thing to behold (especially after playing her in SotN). I also brought two yolo lists – Madrak2 and Grim2, both in Storm of the North – since, well, I wasn’t going to win any trophies anyway. I mainly want to talk about the Madrak2 list: [Theme] Storm of the North[Madrak 2] Madrak Ironhide, World Ender [+28]*Dire Troll Bomber [19]*Pyre Troll [8]Trollkin Runebearer [0(5)] Fell Caller Hero [0(5)] Horthol, Long Rider Hero [8] Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (max) [9]*Northkin Elder [0(3)] Northkin Bear Handlers & Battle Bears [10] Northkin Bear...
