Catacomb tutorial. Bowen he is not, but it’s pretty detailed.


#182

Very kind to post this, thank you.


#183

@Gizmonic also provided some good Catacomb tips on Slam Tilt Podcasts “Hold your weight” episode


#184

PAPAtvLive is going to be playing catacomb tonight on their youtube channel as well. By the end of this weekend I think we’ll all be catacombed out.

We may all be Catatonic… A thank you very much…:grinning:

#189

I think my seeding for the last three years has been 10, 8, 31. Always stuck in a bottom group playing all the leftover classics. Guess I need to seed better!


#190

Yeah, but last year the classics were more playable/desirable than the modern games.


#191

I mean that’s a whole separate conversation, but it would be nice to get a shot at some era variety. Maybe there will be a boat anchor modern Stern that sinks to the depths for the bottom feeder groups. Striker Xtreme, anyone?


#192

Yeah, seems odd to have era diversity if there are no rules in place for picking them.


#193

Exactly. Would be nice to see something like no more than 2 of an era per round.


#194

Agreed. Multi-era constraints in multi-game matches are a good thing, particularly if there are a limited # of moderns or controllable SS relative to the # of groups.


#195

If only we knew someone at Stern with “some” experience in tournaments? :wink:


#196

AFAIK PAPA is running the circuit final.


#197

Get ready for Stingray…


#198

I’m still ready for Catacomb! I just don’t think @sk8ball will ever be… :slightly_frowning_face:


#199

The Toast!
