Tournament 010 – Store Wars 2 – Marc’s Experience with Cygnar

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!

This set of 4 battle reports are from late January (yeah, I’m a little behind!) and will cover my results at the 2nd Store Wars tournament which happened at Black Knight Games in Hamilton.

We’ve already done the podcast for this (WEEKS ago), but if you’d like a more detailed blow-by-blow… read on!

Podcast 064 – Aaron vs Darrell, Khador (eIrusk) vs Menoth (Kreoss3), Rumble at the Bottom of the Barrel

 

Gargantuans-Evolved

Not to be overshadowed by the Smogcon gargantuan preview videos, your friends here at Combo Smite are proud to bring you another battle report!  The new gargantuans range from a giant pokémon for Circle to a spiky fleshlight for Legion so you can choose whatever flavour you wish.

(Marc: Also, I think Darrell is being a little hard on himself… I would say “Rumble NEAR the Bottom of the Barrell” at worst… and who is Sasha Grey?)

Tournament 010 – Store Wars, Results with Legion, Mercs, Cygnar, and Legion (again) – Arcane Assisted!

Don’t have time for my Full Writeup(tm) which will drop later this week, but I wanted to post the awesome podcast we recorded with the brilliant gentlemen from Arcane Assist. If you’re not listening to them, you probably should… and not only because they spent 20 minutes answering all my silly questions on their last podcast!

Podcast 056 – Khador vs Legion, pButcher vs Lylyth3: Non-Denominational Winter Festival Special Time Go!

Podcast 055 – What? How is 'podcast' underlined in red?

Seriously. Facebook is so entrenched in our vernacular that the program recognizes it as a word yet typing podcast deeply confuses it. This is why I have no fear of the Matrix ever happening. If a simple blog – blog also isn’t recognized, by the way – gets perplexed by words that have been around for years then there is no conceivable way towers of human batteries are in our future.

It just occurred to me now that every time a person got pregnant, the robots would have to build a new pod for that person to go into or at least have a vacant one for the new person to occupy. Because birthrates outweigh death rates, the robots would have to keep building new ones. I’m sure that would get really aggravating for the robot management. They’d be like, “Man, these humans would be a lot less of a strain on our raw materials and construction if they could just stop fucking.”

Podcast 053 – Khador vs Trollbloods, for Kith, Kriel and Khador?

Greetings all!  Yet another battle report coming your way from the Combo Smite crew.  This one has nothing to do with tournaments or competitive play but is more entertaining than any of the Rocky movies – except perhaps the one with Bullwinkle.

     This battle report features Old Witch vs pMadrak in a no holds barred fight to the finish is a horrid example of elder abuse.  For this report, in a classic role reversal Aaron will be playing the part of the old maid and I (Darrell) will be playing the part of the unruly combative drunkard.
