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!

Throughout this battle report, you’ll see me using the exceptional Team Canada zone markers. They are available from many Team Canada members for $50 for a set of 4 (2 circles and 2 rectangles), and I can’t recommend them enough. I bought 2 sets myself for running tournaments!

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!

Battle 039 – Cygnar vs Legion, Nemo2 vs eThags: Lightning Striking the Same Place 40+ Times…

Statistically, such an event as lightning striking the same place twice isn’t that unusal… the CN Tower in Toronto is struck an average of 75 times per year. But all the same, getting in about 50 Stormcalls in one game… I think this is a first for me.


Hopefully not the last…

Tournament Podcast 001 – Marc's Results using Cygnar

On Saturday, Nick, Aaron, and I went to the Game Chamber in London, Ontario, for our first ever actual Steamroller tournament.

For those of you who have listened to Combo Smite for any time whatsoever, you all know this… because for the last couple weeks, it’s all any of us have talked about! Practicing for 7 minute timed turns, and anxiety about competing with strangers… it was all pretty nerve-wracking. Aaron had talked himself out of even going for a few days (Nick and I gently prodded him back into competing).

I’m going to link the audio for the podcast to my report, since I’m not POSITIVE that Nick and Aaron are going to do their own… but I certainly hope they will!

For my own part, I had practiced my Nemo3 list about 4 times and was pretty satisfied that I could get it to perform pretty well… but had only fielded my Siege list once, and my Sloan list once. I had an hour drive into London (my home is in Kitchener, exactly 101.4km, or about 60 miles, from London), during which all the embarrassing, stupid, tactical blunder-filled mistakes I’ve made in the past year decided it would be a perfect moment to remind me how awful I am at this game.
