and though We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
It was a poor day to be Michel and a great day to be Emiliano.
Michel got obliterated twice, very quickly. His Assamite's suffered from a hand jam on action cards and were trapped between 2 combat decks, one of his assamites even fled to become Lucien's new minion.
His malkavians made some strategic mistakes and succumbed to Bram's weenies before he could oust his first.
Emiliano had a pack of Bear skin gangrel that bested 2 ravnos Trapparition for the gamewin.
The second game, A game with 3 stealth decks (Bram's weenies, Emiliano Assamite stealth vote, Michel Malkavian OBF DEM) And 2 Wall's (Jonathan Weenie AUS, Lucien Tariq wall without tariq) the walls failed to block anything because every action was done at +5/6 stealth with the occasional Elder Impersonation. And the pool gain machine of Emiliano was stronger than Bram's in the end game.
