Southern Ontario Open

So the Southern Ontario Open has come and gone. Big thanks to the organizers, volunteers, and everyone else who helps make the event possible!

We’re going to record a podcast about it (and probably the new Journeypeople Warcasters) in the near future, plus the amazing “State of the Meta” podcast that Nick and Darrell got to be a part of, but the team is busy recovering today.

So content is coming! We’re just not 100% sure exactly when… but soon! Definitely soon.

Thanks for your patience! And, hey, if you want to see Marc playing an embarrassingly awful game of WarMachine against an incredible (and nice) opponent, check the following link:

Podcast 187 – OTC Results Discussion

Well, the OTC has come and gone. And while we, as a team, didn’t do great (Top 24 isn’t a thing, right?), we did have some great games, some really educational matchups, and a handful of learning experiences.

Come, listen to Kassem, Nick, and I talk about what we learned! It’s a good long podcast, perfect for a lazy Monday morning!

Podcast 185 – Discussing Nemo3 and Lists for Same

Rightio, folks… this week we’re going to take some time to discuss one of my favourite warcasters, and something of a boogeyman in the meta right now… that’s right, ye olde Nemo3!

Gods, I love Nemo3. I loved him back before he was cool, but damn is he cool now… anyway! We discuss how he ticks, the kinds of lists he likes, and then the list I’m planning on using with him at the Ontario Team Championship!

What could possibly go wrong?

Podcast 076 – Cygnar (eNemo) vs Farrow (Dr. Arkadius): Can You Get a PhD in Bacon?

We received a listener e-mail a few weeks ago. Mike requested a full month of Farrow-themed battle reports… to which we responded…
“Does anyone know anyone who plays Farrow!?”

May 13th Unedited 030

A huge thank you to Tim (from Arcane Assist) for helping out as literally the *only* person who plays Farrow in Southern Ontario! Go Tim! And another big thank you to Black Knight Games in Hamilton, Ontario, for hosting our match!

Podcast 051 – Anniversary Podcast! Highlander Format 3-Way Battle, and Giveaway Contest: Our Birthday, We Give You Presents!

So for our Anniversary Podcast report, we tossed around a few ideas: a large 3 way battle, a small round-robin tournament between the hosts, even the possibility of doing a repeat battle from Podcast 001, Ossyan vs Nemo3. But in the end, we decided to go full-jenk and do a Highlander Battle.

Nick invented a modified scenario for us to battle over, and we stumbled into a few hiccups, but it was still a great game… and surprisingly educational! Plus, with all three of us playing, there’s 3 times the usual levels of bickering! Who would want to miss that?

Also! Contest announcement! Details at the beginning of the podcast and the end of the write-up!
