The first staff Steamroller 2013 tournament has come and gone, and it was awesome. Eighteen players came together and threw down over four rounds of intense and viscous combat, with only one emerging as champion. That champion was none other than Development Manager David “DC” Carl.
Surprised? Me neither.
We had some truly great matches in this tournament, such as the insanely close Will Shick versus Jack Coleman battle that went down to tiebreakers after dice down was called; or the furious war between Jason Martin and Ed Bourelle that saw Jason murder Deneghra out of nowhere.
Most important of all, everyone who participated had a great time. If you didn’t get a chance, go check out the Guts N Gears coverage thread to see an absolute ton of photos from the event and check the final standings.
As the alpha starts to wind down and beta gets ready to begin, allow me to share with you a fun spoiler you can look forward to when SR 2013 releases early next year.
SR 2013 consists of twelve select scenarios, some new some old (but tweaked). These scenarios have been chosen to provide tournament players with a great gameplay experience that is balanced, engaging, and easy to understand.
Of course, to get down to twelve scenarios from the previous amount available in SR 2012 some cuts had to be made. If you’re a fan of radial scenarios, I recommend you play a couple tournaments this year while they are still available; they’re going away in SR 2013.
Goodbye, radials. We’ll remember you fondly.
