Hope everyone is having a great holiday season, and enjoying time spent with family and/or friends! A new errata dropped last week, and Nick and I sat down and talked about all the changes, and how we see the shifting meta… plus how we feel about the shift in PP’s policies towards errata and playtesting!
Let us know what you think!
(Also, a head’s up: we’ve run into the wall for media space on Combo Smite, so Marc is going to have to start deleting old images… the audio will stay, so you can still listen to all of our ancient podcasts, but don’t be surprised if the pretty pictures start disappearing!… and, coincidentally, that’s why our header images are now… different…)
Did you guys know that we’re theoretically a Battle Report podcast?! I know, I know… I scarcely believe it myself. And yet, what do we have here?
An entire tournament worth of batreps! And a chance for Combo Smite (Nick, Kassem, Darrell, and I) to prove that we’re not total and complete scrubs?
A big thank you to RJ (from Team Canada) for inviting us down, to Nick and Paul from “CG Realms” in Windsor for hosting the event, and to all the players in the Windsor meta who gave us such a warm welcome and a day full of great gaming!
Time for a bit of a change of pace, folks! Instead of doing a battle report this week, we’d thought it would be informative and useful to talk a bit about the Masters format, and specifically the Active Duty Roster and Specialists that it grants!
This past weekend another tournament was held at The Game Chamber. This was a qualifier for the World Ender Invitational being organized by Party Foul. It was a great event and we were there to take some video Footage.
Store Wars might be done for this year but there are still loads of tournaments around. This weekend Marc ran a small event in our own local London FLGS, The Game Chamber. It was a 50 pt Steamroller and players using ADR casters could take advantage of the 20pts of specialists as if this were a Master’s event.
I love the concept of ADR and my only complaint about the format is that nobody uses it since its only in the Master’s packet.
This week I was matched up against Aaron and his slowly expanding Convergence army. Aaron has few enough models for CoC that his army lists were virtually the same but with 2 different casters. He chose the version with Lucant.
Last Wednesday I was paired up against Aaron and his new toys, Convergence. We opted out of timing the game even though we instantly regretted it, but it was a new faction for him and the extra time seemed to help with all the potential mistakes that would have been made in a rush. (Marc: A word to our listeners: due to the new recording software I used, my voice is on one channel while everyone else is on the other. If you’re only hearing half of the conversation… that’s why! Or, as Nick politely put it: “Huge periods of silence with occasionally me, Adam, or Aaron saying something for a moment.” He’s a jerk-face.)
