Although most of the eminent members of the Riots clan are elderly scientists, in Riotspolis there is only ONE character who could truly qualify as a veteran. Old Grouchy boasts of being the greatest living general from the last Great War (which is true as all the others are now dead). Having been mistakenly taken to Riotspolis, once the door was closed, it was difficult to expel him. So the patriarch awarded him the title of history professor letting him waffl... tell the younger generation how he heroically lost his arm in the battle of Poldachie at the hand of a certain Archibald.

It was during recent work on the new Clint City subway line that the underground shelter, housing Riotspolis, was drilled apart. This Utopian city, dreamt up by wise men at the turn of the century, could now wave goodbye to its tranquility and isolation. Unsurprisingly upset by this turn of events, the Riotsville Council, led by the Patriarch Pericles, decided that the time had come for them to at last emerge from their isolation and impose their “wise rulings” on this barbaric bunch of hoodlums inhabiting the surface.

Can Bublgmm and Doug Snop win three pillz, provide a pill advantage and two damage to life with a single pill, GROOVE ST? If not then I suggest that you should take your whining somewhere else. Grouchy's pretty much superior in providing pills compared to Grace, who has two enemies called min 1 DRs and SOA to worry about and Octana, whose pill provision requirements include sacrificing the card to get that Defeat: 1/2 Pills activated. Sure he's the Hawkins Noel of the Riots once SOB is played against him but at least he can provide pills solidly and surely.

Grouchy's also a two star card, making him able to prevail against most of his opponents who have the same attack strength as him and a great bluff material since if you are not a GHEIST/Root user, you are forced to use SOA against him unless you want your opponent get more pillz to use.

Sunday 22/06/2014, 15:33 second review in like 3 years..

-7 power is decent, really good for a 2*. Higher powered 2* are the name of the game now adays.
-Ability- +2 pillz.
-Bonus- New from UR, offers some padding for your playing style.
-2*- FITS ANYWHERE......and the riots have a number of other playable 2*, and one particular 3* that gets the job done....ERR HMPH...
-That is 7 power, unprotected and vulnerable. No manipulation support. So early round guy, puts your heavy hitters in a postion to strike.
-2 Damage, not a huge dent in ELO, once again reducers make his dent more of a scratch.
- Ability/Bonus. 3 if you win, one if you loose, without any help or support.
Looks like hes received a mixed reception. I think people are missing his usage. HE COMPLETELY TAKES ONE ROUND OUT OF A FOUR ROUND MATCH OUT OF PLAY. In an ELO setting....where its all about edging out your opponent. Play with 4-6 pillz.. and most of the time you will go into the second round 12-14......with the same amount, or one more pill than your opponent. If they dead pill, you have a number of other riots cards to sacrifice to even it out. Only thing is to make sure you have a power advantage going into late rounds...which you should have...considering the riot half of your deck will only be 9*-11*. Thats lot of room to compensate for the vulnerability of your...lets say 3 2 * riots cards. Hes not your man in a must win situation. Hes not your late rounds. Hes your man to almost always win the first round, keep the gaps tight, and steer the direction of the match. And as I stated before...HE IS YOUR MAN TO MAKE A 4 ROUND ELO MATCH....A 3 ROUND ELO match, with the * flexibility, to introduce powerful late round clean up cards. He will end up being staple...and no one will use smiley
Overall....IDK...time will tell if his utility remains in tact...( When UR makes enough money off the riots, and begin the bans... )

the best card grapfic ever !

Wednesday 22/10/2014, 22:59

Unlike Hawkins he lacks the SOB that keeps Hawkins at equal if not more power then cards with attack manipulation, SOB, and power manipulation cards as their bonus.

If Grouchy was a bronze card he be as much as any other card as he isn't solid as Hawkins and suffers the same problem with the likes of Bublgmm and Doug Snop. The only difference is one is gold and the other 2 aren't.

For those who don't get it. Who is better against SOA bonuses, who needs to put more pills against a foe with a 7 power card with a bonus that is attack manipulation, power manipulation, SOB, and other bonuses. Hawkins wins most of those times, followed by Doug Snop against most manipulation clans, while Bublgmm advantage is in recover if a amount of pillz is use.

Grouchy is risky with a decent reward with a small recovery that doesn't matter as its the clan bonus anyway and only this expensive because gold and lack of cards currently in Riots.

7/2 +2 pills. Gotta love this. smiley

Friday 13/06/2014, 12:08

Another great two star for riots smiley

People are complaining about him being 7/2 and his ability & also his price.
FIRST of all supply & demand (which explains his price)
Second, there's a reason why his pretty pricey as well, since his bonus contrasts his ability if you lose the match you sill get 1 pill (of course unless the enemy has SOB) and also if you win the match you get +3 pillz.
And can we talk about Grouchy being a 2 STAR!!! jeez, people. smiley

To all those complaining about the price:
Hawkins is very similar, yet grouchy is cheaper, so stop complaining smiley smiley

ok aganist pill removers who have defeat -pill they remove 2 pills at most this guy adds 3 pills. Aganist victory pill removers doesn't matter there if you lose you lose you get 1 pill back from the the1-6 pills they may have removed from the clan bonus if you win get 3 pills back. how do pill removers make him useless he makes it so less pills get removed in the first place.
using SOA as a reason to why it is a bad card? like half the cards in this game turn into trash against soa, uranus becomes a cruddy 5/5, kolos is now 7/4.
And the new clan bonus is a strong thing because it adds a new type of game element that forces peoples to build new strategies. Now we have a clan that basically has 15 pills instead of 12 and don't forget 1 pill can always mean the difference between winning or losing

We now have a rival for Archibald smiley

Tuesday 22/07/2014, 00:26

Take a look at Bublgmm and Doug Snop. And now take a look at their prices. Yep. You know that this card suks at this price

Thursday 11/06/2015, 16:18

If this card was uncommon or common it would be 1,5- 2k clintz. Stop fooling around and trying to prove to us that it's better than Doug Snop or Bublgmm., just so you may keep the price in the sky and make a huge profit.

Saturday 05/07/2014, 04:16

Dude, Seriously!? A card who gives you 2 Pillz at the price of 15000 Cintz?

The card itself is useless against removers of Pillz whether are or not in defeat or victory. And also SOA as GHEIST or Roots are the pain of the ass, without saying SOB decks as well. And at that prize, only because the "new" clan has a cool bonus to recycle one pill for having a victory or a defeat don't change anything.
This card shall be expensive neither, maybe 3000 or less.

Clint City, night.
