    I've seen some more people joining our ranks, which heartens me. In the interests of keeping the format varied and fun, I just posted some more builds.

    Are there any maps which might happen to be much more mage friendly? It's just that 70 % of all competetive maps tend to be too scrunched, and with the Whirlwind and Whirlwind Enemies agreed veto, trying to distance with elves can be a pain.

    Uh, not sure what that has to do with this topic. Also, not sure what the intended context is so I'm confused by things like "whirlwind veto"--care to elucidate for me? Thanks! :)

    I'm definitely interested in playing this format, but I haven't found anyone in general chat interested in playing. Is there any interest in organizing a tournament or open play hour?

    Hi whorrak! Thanks for your interest in the format.
    It's been sort of on the back burner for a bit now, as we've had a couple non-peasant tournaments in the last couple months; also the advent of the guild system has encouraged people to play more ranked games in order to participate in the guild ranking fight. That said, we have a couple things on the horizon for peasant.

    1) tuknir and I are going to be organizing another peasant tournament soon. It's going to be in a different format, and hopefully be a lot of fun both for participants and for spectators. I will be maintaining my dedication to balanced play and recorded matches, but there are some details I need to iron out. More info on this will be out by the end of the month.

    2) Blue Manchu is introducing "leagues" in its next big update, which will be a new multiplayer arena that allows for various challenges or nonstandard scenarios to be completed in a competitive manner. My understanding is that it is possible for a given league to enforce various rules—for instant, "no tokens," "no rares," "only dwarves," etc.—and thus I think it's possible that BM might host peasant leagues occasionally in the future. I don't know more details on this as it hasn't really been revealed, but we can expect more info on it soon.

    What you mentioned, an open peasant play hour, sounds fantastic. Do you want to try organizing it? I'm a firm believer in inviting others to adopt leadership positions—peasant shouldn't be just my thing! :)

    There hasn't been much peasant action recently, but I'm very excited to find out the state of things post-balance. I predict wizards are a lot worse than before :p
    (which is probably good because they were dominant)

    Just ask for a peasant game in the lobby and you may get one!

    Nope, I'm sure wizards have a fighting chance.
  10. This seems like a really interesting way to play. Looking forward to finding someone to play with. =)

    Oh, this is interesting. I'll have to build a peasant party.

    Any recent news about peasant games, leagues, or tournaments?

    Peasant leagues are something I keep bugging Jon about and they may happen someday. Definitely not before the expansion. As for unofficial tournaments, I've been wanting to run one but I've been pretty busy. Maybe when the expansion is in testing or released, if peasant leagues aren't in progress, I'll run something :)

    Hey @Flaxative - just watched your video where you were preparing for the first peasant tournament - my favourite quote "of COURSE he had a fking parry!... i shouldnt swear" :p

    Seems fun, right?

    Those were good times. And I wasn't on the team yet :)

    I'm not super-excited by this idea; but I think it could be fun and fresh way to play.

    I think it could be cool to occasionally have leagues which enforce this kind of rule-set. (i.e. some leagues are quick draw, some are fixed deck... and I think it could be cool if some leagues were BYO peasant deck.)

    This is good because everyone here is equal and its all in the skill - what items you use and how you use them

    Hey Flax, totally a great idea, though I probably won't play too much :(. We vampires must retain our aristocrat image. ;)
