TKE has a Sad.

Got 3 games in today.  First game was a training game, my opponent has literally started a few weeks ago, and I gave her advice throughout (a girl?! I know!!)  Anyway...yeah, she did okay, I got a win 3-1 on Seize Ground in the end, game done, bleh.  Not an issue.


Game two wasn't in GW like the last (stupid 4' x 4' boards...) this one was at QUB Dragonslayers (stupid 5'x4' boards! lol)  Twas the final round of our ongoing Escalation League, and I rolled into a  1500 game (oddly the first at the high a points level, long story...) with my 1500 list.

{I just now realised I played both the EMLs as Lances - it had no impact, but was cheating.  Going to have to apologise to Myk...}

Anyway, he had 2 Meltaguns and a Combi-Melta in his army.  I expected to trash him, and was probably overconfident.  I know I was feeling bad, because clearly my list should have few issues, and I think I was sloppy because of this.  I also think he won largely because of something I thought was a mistake, the position he Deep Struck Abaddon and his Terminators...but no matter.  Even if it was a mistake, he played very well, and fully deserved the win.  Net result was that I was eliminated from the league, as it now cuts to Top 8, and single elims.  (The failure to table the Tau player last week proving pretty damn important after all.)

Still though, much as this grates with me it's not the main issue.  After this game finished I played Ray (of THIS post 'fame') and I'm not sure he had as much fun in the game as I...I thought he played fine, not great, but certainly not terribly - and I went on to table him, largely because I insisted on playing the last turn, even though he had to go home (admittedly, I was in quite a hurry to go home too, but I thought he was beating me on KPs at that point [working it out now, it was a tie] and I really didn't want to lose.)  Well, I wanted to win.  I could have lived with a draw fine - but it doesn't matter.  Point is, he's a friend, and I was a bit of a dick by doing that.

Sorry Ray.  :(
