EXCEPTIONAL SERIES X GAME! MW SLOTS OPEN! 4 NEW PLAYERS VISIT CRT!
Check out the report on the SEASON TIMELINE PAGE for one of the most incredible SERIES X games ever. Also, amazing games of Series 1 and 2 were played with new players.
Three players have bowed out of the MW event, so the question now remains-did anyone fill those slots in the few regular season dates we have left? Yes!
CRT player Joe has placed with his 4/30 game of Series X and will be playing in the MW event.
Only three males are participating in the MW event this season, which has been a season for the ladies!
4 new players visited CRT this past weekend, and one of them won a game. They have been posted on the PLAYER ROSTER PAGE.
SERIES X ADJUSTED FOR GROWING NUMBER OF GUIDES
In response to the growing number of player guides, Series X has been adjusted to create a balance for the increased advantages that players are gaining. As players have grown adept and confident in the concept of executing technical climbs on Lone Eagle, their advantage has increased as well. Players have learned that it is possible to safely climb the technical routes on Lone Eagle and the risks can be mitigated substantially by becoming a guide. Players are also learning that becoming a guide can be relatively easy to do, resulting in more active guides. By successfully climbing any route on Lone Eagle, players become qualified guides and enjoy extra protective benefits in future games, as well as increased efficiency in completing subsequent routes. However, climbing a route still does not make up for experience of that freak accident from which no experienced mountain climber can escape. The changes in Series X reflect this reality, and as players evolve, so will Series X. As more players gain the advantages of being a guide, so too must the dangers and risks they inevitably face.
9 tokens have been changed to include two more hazards that experienced climbers cannot escape, "high wind," and "lightning." Like the other certain death events, these tokens may appear anywhere within the Series X environment, although "high wind" will likely appear on the upper reaches of the mountain in most instances. Extra bear and mountain goat tokens have been added. On the equipment front, 2 "gun" tokens have been added. When purchased, these tokens will protect climbers in encounters with bandits and wild animals, and could be an effective cost saving measure when compared to other options such as guides. 3 "equipment failure" tokens have been added. These tokens cancel out gear card ownership and will prove to be lethal to technical climbers who discover them while executing a technical route.
Tokens to be replaced reflect the increased number of player guides. 3 "fall" tokens, 2 "llama" tokens, 2 "guides," 1 "sherpa," and 1 "bad guide" have been replaced.
In addition to these changes, parameters on the dice roll events for technical and snow and ice climbs have been adjusted to account for the increased abilities of player guides and the growing popularity of multiple party member ascents.
In anticipation of this week's 2 Series X games, these changes have been made and will be implemented for the Park's final regular game weekend.
The Series X instructions here at CRT's web site have been updated accordingly. Players are urged to familiarize themselves with all of the rules governing Series X.
These forthcoming games should be a good environment for testing, as a number of those attending players are also certified guides.
