Marc attended the Store Wares Invitation final last week and took some video footage. Round 2 video was lost somehow but here are Rounds 1,3 and 4. Continue reading
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.
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
Last weekend I made the trip down to Hamilton Ontario to play in another Store Wars qualifier tournament. One of the goals I set for myself this year was to make it in to the Store Wars invitational and one of the most important aspects for Store Wars is attendance.
I brought my Legion this time with 2 casters I have only played a few times, (Vayl1 and Lylyth3) not to be competitive but to get some good practice games in with casters I want to learn more about. I ended up going 1-2 plus a bye in the second round. I felt pretty good about my performance in general but I didn’t feel like either of my lists were good for the Legion mirror match.
This is also the first time I’ve been featured on the camera so you can enjoy watching me take on Chris Orr’s Vayl2 in the first round.
Rd1 Legion (Lylyth3) Vs Legion (Vayl2)
Rd2 Circle (Kreuger2) Vs Khador (Zerkova)
Rd3 Skorne (Xerxis2) Vs Circle (Kreuger1)
Rd4 Khador (Vlad1) Vs Cygnar (Siege)
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.
I went 1-3 with 2 close losses and 1 steamroll. Kassem went 2-2.
Rd1 – Skorne (Rasheth) Vs. Skorne (Xerxis1)
Rd2- Skorne (Zaal) Vs. Skorne (Xerxis2)
Rd3- Legion (Thags2) Vs Skorne (Xerxis1)
Rd4 Cygnar (Stryker2) Vs Legion (Vayl2)
So despite the fact that I’ve done the last 2 podcast games in a row, it didn’t occur to Nick that *maybe* he should take pictures and notes for his game this week… and so our good listeners get to learn EVEN MORE about how much I suck with Siege!
In Nick’s defence, I didn’t tell him to take pictures… mostly because I wasn’t aware I needed to… but hey, I’m fielding a real man’s Siege list (finally), and it’s time to start putting it through its paces!
The Store Wars tournament circuit is continuing in Southern Ontario this winter
I wasn’t able to make it to the tournament this weekend but I asked Marc to video tape some games for me. Continue reading
Huh. So my noble cohosts seem to have forgotten that along with a podcast (that we do weekly), we also need a write up to post WITH the podcast. Seems like a silly oversight… Overly Verbose Battle Report Writer to the rescue!
Additionally, the winners of our giveaway contest are announced! But not here, that’ll be done on Facebook tomorrow afternoon. A huge thank you to everyone who entered, and we hope the prizes are enjoyed!
