  1. It should yes, but nobody likes a braggart. Dr Orkumz works too.
  2. I was hoping that we could continue to use the message board here that the kind folks at Ordo have gifted us. It would be lovely to not only have Group Me to talk on. It's way easier to post lists, and do more long-form conversations here than on the phone.
  3. I've re-written this thing like ten times, and I'm just gonna send it. I'm an old hand from a while ago. Been to a LOT of OFCC, been playing 40k for over 20 years. Through a combination of finishing a PhD (I DID finish it), getting a solid teaching job (also did that), and this little pandemic thing, I've kinda lost touch with 40k and for a long time lost my drive to play and build it. I also kinda pulled into my shell and shut out a lot of people, including the people here. OFCC getting cancelled two years in a row didn't help, as that was my lifeline with the rest of the world and this community. Now I'm stuck out here in Ohio still (though I have a very well paying teaching gig that will help me feed my plastic crack addiction), and I figured now's the time to jump back in and say hello to everyone. I've been keeping up with 40k, the rules, the armies, the balance(?) of the game, and I just wanted to put myself out there and say hello.To those of you that know me, hey guys, and those of you that don't, nice to meet you! I hope to make a nuisance out of myself in the near future!
  4. Thank you Huffy Puffy Burk, your over-use of periods is driving me crazy. Use one, or three (also known as an ellipses), not four, you heathen.
  5. You should capitalize English. It's a.... never mind. I see what you did there. Nah, it's not a product of the times at all. Like I said, I know you guys are doing what you feel is best, what was asked for, and what is best for the club. I SUPPORT you guys. Just the time table that I think is questionable. I love you too sweetums. <3
  6. My man, @Sugarlessllama while I agree with the spirit of your objections, stoking the fire and riling up folks wont solve anything. Let's come together and have a discussion, not a fight. I hear you brother, and I'm with you. 🙂
  7. That would not really be a Pollyanna, but perhaps an optimistic perspective from a single (and perchance privileged) point of view. There may be 31 factions to choose from, but your assumption is that each player at OFCC has access to all 31 of those factions, and enough time and money to prepare a brand new army from now until the end of July. Additionally, we have multiple teams (mine included) that travel over 2,000 miles at great personal expense to attend an event that we believe in, an event that I have pushed and recruited people for over a decade and a half. The ability to simply 'find more people' or 'switch up teams' is not easy for those of us that do not live in the hallowed PNW anymore (and boy do I miss it). Burk, you know I love you man. We've known each other for a while now, and you also know I wont censor myself. I know you, and for all the German jokes, you're one of the most caring, giving, and selfless people I know (unless you're playing Blood Bowl), and Ordo would be nothing without the endless dedication of you and the rest of the Senators. Thank you for that. With that said, perhaps this statement was meant a different way, but this came across, to me at least, as "sorry our late decision makes it so you can't play in the event you want to, but here's this standard 40k event that isn't the one you came here to play, play in this one". I understand providing an alternative is gracious as hell of the HOG and the Senate, but I really feel that for teams such as Ordo East (as an example), in a tiny town with a single store, where almost everything is shut down and no one can buy anything, and who have already purchased their tickets and in some instances reserved hotel rooms, that is a bitter pill to swallow. This is assuming that I am not misunderstanding the intention of this co-current event. If this is a part of the OFCC team event, and just is a way for Ringers to participate without a team, then that might work. But a completely separate event just isn't the same. I want to reiterate that this new limitation affects my team in no way, as we never double up on factions, and I LIKE the change and what it's trying to do. I approve of diversity and not just seeing a team of five marine players all with similar lists. It's just the short time frame combined with the current economic/pandemic situation that I am objecting to, and the fact that this decision will make it impossible for some players and even entire teams to not be able to participate. At a time like this, in the type of situation everyone is in with this pandemic, taking away something like playing in the OFCC team event for such a reason just feels against the spirit of what OFCC and Ordo Fanaticus is all about. That being said all, this is just one person's opinion, and I will, of course, accept the final decision of the HOG and Senate. There are hundreds of small details that go on behind the scenes that we team captains and players do not understand or know about, and there could be a LOT more to this than we know. In the grand scheme of things, the Senate has never made a decision that they did not feel was in the best interest of the club, and I trust them. I simply am expressing my thoughts and feelings. If I have offended anyone, I apologize, it was not my intention. I love all of you guys, I wouldn't save up several grand a year and fly 2,500 miles to spend a single weekend throwing dice and drinking if I didn't. This event and it's spirit simply matters a LOT to me. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and attention.
  8. Eager to come back for my 14th year at OFCC! Or is it 15th? I can't remember at this point. While this new team limitation doesn't affect Team Diversity very much (we always bring different armies for each person, hence the diversity), I feel that this will be quite a blow to a large number of teams that cannot afford to buy and make a new army at such a short notice. This announcement needed to come back in January, not April. With that said, I LIKE the change and what it is trying to do, don't get me wrong. My issue is the timing and the fact that there are many older gamers who cannot afford to/don't want to make a new army that come to OFCC as their only major 40k event each year. Any rule that restricts long-time members and participators out of hand without a recourse that doesn't cost 500+ dollars and/or 100+ hours of work painting and building cannot be for the good of the event. I feel that allowances should be made for some teams, like the Warhampsters who are all great guys and I love seeing them every year, to bend this new rule a bit. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to this event! Now to find a fifth member.... Khan? Skipper? Don? Gotta send out the all-call!
  9. SOrry, i'm being silly. I think my second challenge is Ash if SOtW isn't taking their third slot, and Dark Trainer and I wanted to challenge each other's teams.
  10. wait.. who challenged me?! I do what where who when? How die this do what now? Who wants to fight!?
  11. Huh. Never thought of it that way. I guess I'll just run you out of town on Sunday night or Monday morning, whichever is most convenient for you. 😄
  12. Gosh darn it @VonVilkee. I'll take you to task, take you down, take you out and run you out of town. You're on!
