Tournament Podcast 016 – Nick and Marc's Experiences at the SOO!

Nick and I went to the Southern Ontario Open a few weekends ago, and then recorded a podcast about it! Huzzah!

Southern Ontario Open 006

Listen to learn why you might want to consider playing your lists BEFORE going to a tournament, and see if I’ve managed to learn how to use Siege (answer: yes!).

Todd and Nick also played a game for the podcast this week… I’m hoping we can record that one later and use it later (because more podcasts are always better!), but we didn’t have time before Monday morning. But still, a good podcast!

Tournament 014 – Store Wars 4 – Cygnar vs Everyone! Again!

Finally starting to catch up on all the tournaments I’ve been to… this one occurred back in March the week before the Ontario Team Championships, but I was finally freed from the oppression of my own awful list!

Well, *mostly* freed… turns out I’m not exactly super-awesome at making on-the-spot tournament lists either… but we’ll get to that, friends… we’ll get to that!

Tournament 013 – Store Wars Part 3 – Cygnar vs Everyone!

So this is a set of short battle reports from a month or so ago… I learned at Store Wars Number 2 that my picture-taking was costing me games (I was Death Clocked 2 times by merely a few seconds, about the time it takes me to pull out my phone and snap some shots every turn!). So rather than full blow-by-blows, these will be shorter synopsi of what happened. I hope you find them educational and entertaining!IMG_20150221_142830 copy

Tournament Video – Ontario Team Championship

Last weekend the Combo Smite crew headed down to Burlington, Ontario to compete in Canada’s first WTC style team tournament, the Ontario Team Championship.OTC The event was run by Scott Talarico from Party Foul and a huge thanks go out to him and all his volunteers for putting on such an huge and successful Warmachine event.

Aww yeah. It feels good to be writing battle reports again… between life and work, I’ve had precious little time remaining for the important things: talking about glorious victories and ignoble defeats!
