Podcast 158 – Southern Ontario Open Wrap-Up with Tim (The Enchanter) Banky!

A few weeks back, the Combo Smite crew attended the Southern Ontario Open (“the SOO”). This is the last “big con” that Combo Smite attends, and it is an incredible event.

This week, we managed to rope in one of the organizers AND the winner of the SOO Masters event back to the ‘cast. An incredible player, an incredible judge, just a incredible guy.

Okay, we didn’t REALLY cry that much. And to be completely honest, Cryx is still super-scary and very powerful… don’t believe me?

Give this OVER 5 HOUR Faction review a listen, and then tell us all the things we got wrong!

Just don’t talk to us about Bane Riders. Ugh.

(*Marc: Please note that when Nick says “This Weekend”, he means many months ago now… he’s been busy, and so I have taken it upon myself to finish up these half-done reports, knowing more-or-less what happened to Nick over the course of the day. I apologize for the vagueness of the reports, but Nick takes beautiful pictures and played really, really well at this tournament, and I figure we can all learn something from his experiences! I will let you know when I take over in earnest, but for now, back to Nick’s preamble!)

Simultaneously, we also started a Journeyman League for all the eager players who were ready to dip their toes into WarMachine!

Southern Ontario Open Youngbloods Tournament Podcast: Menoth Represent!

Nick, Adam, Kassem, and I went to the Southern Ontario Open tournament on Saturday, May 24th… great times had by all, and a solid podcast resulting from it!

Nick will be posting his results in his own thread, but the podcast is being attached to mine because… well, no good reason, so just because! Also, I’m going to apologize in advance for the quality of the pictures… we were on the clock, so I only had enough time to snap a single shot of each turn (and sometimes not even that!), and only using my crappy little camera phone. Thankfully, Nick took much better pictures for his report, so check those out for your pretty-picture fix!

Background and Preamble

If you’ve been following Combo Smite for the last few weeks, you’ll have heard us all talking about the 35 point 2-list tournament coming up… that was this one, the “Youngbloods” portion of the Southern Ontario Open tournament. The ‘main’ event of the tournament was a massive (EIGHTY-EIGHT MAN!) qualifier for the WarMachne Weekend Invitational… but I didn’t feel mentally prepared for such an event. And after seeing the field… I think I made the right decision. They had plenty of space, but I gotta tell ya, 90 tournament players all trying to talk over each other in a relatively small room? Yeah, I was much happier on my side of the tournament.
