End of 5th round :

The next two rounds were super fast.
I had less than 3 minutes on the clock.
I managed to kill Skin & Moans in the right zone, but I didn’t have a time to deal with BE on full hp.

All in all, at the end of 7th round, Tomasz won by 1 scenario point.

A few words after game :

  • It was an equal game.
    It’s very hard to play vs Dreamer in late game.
  • After this game, I’m sure that I need to change Vindictus for another caster.
    I chose HR.
  • So, it was my 150 game by PoM.
    After every 50 games, I’m updating statistics.
