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!

Hacking the Cortex: Paging Dr. Avian

Posted by on 4:55 pm

This week, it’s something completely different VagrantPoet will be stepping into my office to talk about his Faction ADD. What does it look like, and are there any techniques we can use to reduce it? I_A:  What symptoms led you to believe you might be suffering from faction ADD? V_P: I start playing a Faction, and enjoy it, start getting really into eking out the best lists. And then I play. When I began I used to hit a wall, and get jealous of the strengths of other factions, or things I felt I couldn’t do. My first swap to Circle was because Haley2s stormclad would die after being launched and I read Kaya2s feat. Most of my jumps have been motivated by looking jealously at my bad matchups. Other times, it’s the pull of a new challenge. I_A: How many faction jumps have you had in total? Not just total number of factions, but actual jumps- including backwards ones? V_P: Trolls to Cryx, Cryx to Cygnar, Cygnar to Circle, Circle to Menoth to Cygnar, Cygnar to Circle, Circle to Legion, Legion to Cygnar, to Skorne, to Circle, and now to Khador. I_A: How long, on average, did you stick with a faction before leaping? V_P: About 2-3 months. I_A: Why do you feel that faction ADD is a problem behaviour for you? V_P:  All of the best players play lists into the ground. I want to master a faction, not hop around I_A: I’m assuming money is a factor as well? V_P: It was. Though honestly, I usually start a new faction by winning it. I’ve mostly won my skorne/khador models. Legion was detrimental though.I bought in very very fast, while between college and masters and very broke I ate less to buy in. I_A: Before get started on curing your faction ADD, there’s one vital question – What is your goal  behaviour? Clearly state, quantifiable goals are the most important thing for changing a behaviour. V_P: Stick to one Faction. When I encounter problems try to find answers in my faction of choice. Master that faction and its various styles. Get my level up at playing the faction. My goal would be to stick for 1-2 years. I_A: Alright. Well, the first thing you need to do when you want to change a behaviour is to identify the reinforcers and punishers that are maintaining the undesirable pattern of behaviour. That way, you can pick a faction that meets those needs, that gets you the reinforcers you need to stick with them. V_P: I’m currently drawn towards Khador, and I’m thinking about making them The Faction that I stick with for the next year (at least). One of the things that draws me is that I feel like they have a deep bench, but I don’t have many people to netdeck. All Khador really need are a few ways to play with armor, and I think there are interesting ways to use MoW. So jacks are a thing and I think pVlad has that. Also, I like lots of dudes, as losing important pieces tilts me a lot. However, I HATE being shot. And Khador aren’t great against that. I also have a problem with faction envy in general – other factions always have an easier solution to the thing that’s bothering me. So how do I stop faction envy? Is it about picking a faction that doesn’t need to...
