Bochum VtES League 2011: February 18th

Here are the decks of the Bochum VtES League 2011 from the meeting on February 18th, 2011 (prey is from left to right, from top to bottom):

Left: Sascha played a run-of-the-mill Ventrue G4/5 Lawfirm deck, but was dependent on other player's votes.
Right: A Guruhi Vote/Rush deck (with Eze as its main vampire) was used by Michael, but he had problems passing votes sitting between two decks with a lot of votes, and dealing with Louhi special ability.

Left: Ralf replayed his Cybele/Lutz/Louhi Derange deck. Having a dream start, he didn't manage to put enough pressure on Martin for ousting him.
Right: Basically a Obf/Dom Stealth Bleed, the deck Martin played had a few surprises as well. Most notably a well-played Festivo dello Estinto to refill the vampires earlier emptied with Villein.

The fifth player, Hardy, played a Brujah G4/5 Toolbox deck (mainly with vote/combat). He had a strong start but spend a lot resources (read: Second Tradition: Domain) on his prey and was ousted when on ~12-15 pool.

Results: Martin 1.5 VP, Sascha 1.5 VP, Ralf 0.5 VP (timeout).

We also heard some bad news as well, though in fact it was no news. End of last year it was decided that the pub, the Grunewald (in business for 110 years), we are playing at, is being torn down in Fall 2011. Luckily we have an ace in the hole, a local gaming pub named "Four Winds", but we'll have to secure a spot there for the Friday evenings.
