This week, Nick and I discuss list building again! I’m really enjoying these episodes (although there is a finite number of “tournament-viable” lists we can compare to… but neither Nick nor I are actually that focused on “tournament-viability”).
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!
So this week Darrell and I had the envious task of trying out the spoiled rules up to this point. Those being: Free focus for ‘Jacks during the control phase, focus when Monstrosities are damaged and not loosing it, multiple reach ranges (Nick’s favourite), and last but not least the dreaded pre-measuring. (Spoiler alert; the sky isn’t falling.)
This battle begins my path into the unknown, as I take control of Nick’s Cephalyx army for a while to satisfy a desire I’ve had ever since this contract was created! I’ve created a few lists I want to try out and perfect, things will be a little dicey at first, but I hope to be a fine Mind Slaver in no time.
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!
