Bottom of the Barrel Tournament Results

So the dust has settled on our first Bottom of the Barrel event. Lots of fun was had with 14 players showing up to prove their caster wasn’t bottom of the barrel!  As previously posted I took my Trolls deciding  on a Bearka Tier 4 list, and Gunny.

First round I get a buddy Jon who was rocking Legion for the first time in an event.  He only had to borrow models off of 3 different people to make his Tier 4 list.  I had no clue what to drop so I went for Bearka.

Underestimating your opponent!

I recently went to a tournament at Titan and I got through the first round playing Morvhana and I was paired up vs a Convergence player in the second round.  My second list was Bradigus and even though I knew he was going to drop Lucant I decided to drop Bradigus because; “He’s got to be a newer player bringing COC to a tournament, I’ll just get myself unlocked.”
