Battle Report 103: eThagrosh vs eMadrak 50 pts. Runes? Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Runes.

eThagsVSeMadrakWelcome dear readers to another Combo Smite battle report.  This week we’ve got Nick’s Legion of Everblight up against Darrell’s Trollbloods.  Additionally Darrell and Nick had a talk before the game and Darrell agreed to not drop Runes of War!  Why, do you ask?  Well, Runes has been on the podcast several times, on the video battle reports several times and quite frankly Darrell is sick of playing Runes of War despite it being the proper drop in his current list pairing.  So in the interest of umm, making things interesting we’ve got eThagrosh vs eMadrak in an eBattle of the eTitans!

Tournament Video – Store Wars 2015 – Phoenix Rising #2

I hope everybody is enjoying our new Video Battle Reports.

However, I still want keep providing as much tournament footage from the local meta as we can get.

I haven’t been able to make to many tournaments lately.  Thankfully Marc was able to make it to the Phoenix Rising in St Catherine’s, Ontario for the latest Store Wars tourney.  Unfortunately, my chances of qualifying are getting pretty slim these days.

Tournament Video – JBC 50pt Steamroller

Last Weekend Marc ran a Steamroller event at Just By Chance Games in Kitchener ON.  I wasn’t able to attend but Marc was kind enough to take footage from each round for me.

One of Combo Smite’s favourite Mercenary Co-Hosts, Darrell,  was in attendance and even made it on camera a couple times. Continue reading

This is a bit after the fact.  Kassem and I made the trek down to Burlington a couple weeks ago to take part in another local Steamroller.  In a rare event I took Retribution to a tournament and Kassem was playing his Skorne as usually.

Rd2- Skorne (Zaal) Vs. Skorne (Xerxis2)

(*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!)
