|Yes. 1m times more frustrating than this.|
3 BIG wins on day 1.
Clobbered by a 30 tournament point fine for having my list 15 points over! (10 TP docked per game played when they figure it out)
In my retard rush to type and print army lists for myself, Kabalite and Bringer of Death on Friday afternoon after work, without codices.. I messed up and failed to do any quality assurance/checks on my work.
So fucking foolish. Listed 5 x Warriors in Scythes as 160.
165 obviously and have been since I started using them when the models came out. Plenty of time to know this chuffing value off by wrote.
Thought I had 15 points spare, threw on an extra mindshackle scarabs on my second lord, briefly wondered why I'd never done that before..then cracked on and wrote Justin and Steve's army lists.
So there we go. 15 points over. Yeah, 3 Warriors in Scythes at 165 (the correct cost dumbass) will do that.
My performance? Day one admirable, day two I was so fucked off that I had basically RUINED my tournament year that I just didn't play well.
Looking back so many misguided errors.
4 wins, 2 losses, 5th highest VPs..
-30 Tournament points and what do you have?
A very frustrated and unqualified 40k player.
Missed by one spot..bottom half of the pissing tournament. Don't now get to play in the biggest UK tournament of the year - failed miserably to qualify for the Uk GT 2013.
Did I fail through playing ability? Nope.
Could I have achieved the same result with the same list?Yes
Did it make a difference? Nope. Just play 1 Immortal less for 19 not 20 and boom, fixed, still get both MSS sets.. Immortals still do almost exactly the same.. to be honest, I could have played without more.. but that's for the future.
If I had've got my list right like I ALWAYS do...8th ahead of the Reddy's.
I cannot fucking believe it.
I. hate. 40k.
Currently 8th on Rankings HQ, great tournament year, won tournaments this year, top 3 placings...
Nevermind, that's the way the cookie crumbles.
There is always next year.
I am now going to go and cry like a bitch in a corner somewhere.
EDIT: Can I quickly point out that I actually have no issue whatsoever with the decision or anything else.. this is a self-hate rant, I'd cut myself or something if I was a loser, but basically being the hero I am, this is the extent of my frustration..normal Ven will resume now.
