Podcast 148 – Ontario Team Championships 2017

Ah, the annual OTC. A great time for WarMachine, and a wonderful opportunity to record a metric crap-tonne of battle reports! This episode Nick and I talk about our battles, and we’re planning on getting the rest of the team in a later episode!

For our American listeners, conversion from metric crap-tonnes to Imperial crap-tonnes is approximately 1.47.

Podcast 068 – Tournament 012 – Adepticon 2015, Part One!

So the boyz of Combo Smite (well, Nick, Aaron, and I) went on a 8 hour road trip down to Chicago for Adepticon 2015. Super-fun times… and while we were there, we recorded a podcast! Go us!

There will be another podcast out shortly (hopefully by Thursday) where we talk with our buddies over at 30mm about a game Nick and Onyx/Matt played, but for now, please enjoy 90% of what we did at Adepticon! And a few pictures I took (hopefully Nick and Aaron will toss their pictures in either here, or under their own posts, at some point).

Podcast 045 – Tournament 006 – Game Summit Masters – Marc’s Results w/ Menoth

So last weekend was the Game Summit Masters in Ottawa. A fantastic time sandwiched between two brutally long drives… but totally worth it!

Due to the length of the trip and the exhaustion involved, and because of some game cancellations this week, we decided to do the trip as our Podcast game this week… so come, gather round friends, and listen to a tale of two novice WarMachine players in the distant north!

Southern Ontario Open Youngbloods Tournament Podcast: Menoth Represent!

Nick, Adam, Kassem, and I went to the Southern Ontario Open tournament on Saturday, May 24th… great times had by all, and a solid podcast resulting from it!

Nick will be posting his results in his own thread, but the podcast is being attached to mine because… well, no good reason, so just because! Also, I’m going to apologize in advance for the quality of the pictures… we were on the clock, so I only had enough time to snap a single shot of each turn (and sometimes not even that!), and only using my crappy little camera phone. Thankfully, Nick took much better pictures for his report, so check those out for your pretty-picture fix!

Background and Preamble

If you’ve been following Combo Smite for the last few weeks, you’ll have heard us all talking about the 35 point 2-list tournament coming up… that was this one, the “Youngbloods” portion of the Southern Ontario Open tournament. The ‘main’ event of the tournament was a massive (EIGHTY-EIGHT MAN!) qualifier for the WarMachne Weekend Invitational… but I didn’t feel mentally prepared for such an event. And after seeing the field… I think I made the right decision. They had plenty of space, but I gotta tell ya, 90 tournament players all trying to talk over each other in a relatively small room? Yeah, I was much happier on my side of the tournament.

Adepticon 2014!

We three hosts of Combo Smite went to Adepticon this past weekend… and we recorded a quick 30 minute podcast after we got back (tired, sore, over-fed and happy!).

(Note the look of extreme concentration on Nick’s face as he extremely concentrates! And the snazzy Combo Smite baseball jerseys we were rockin’!)

You can listen to it here, or on iTunes, as is your leisure…

Combo Smite Field Trip

As we’ve mentioned on the podcast a few times, we three noble adventurers are off the distant and magical land of Chicago, Illinois… about 8 hours distant, actually, but still pretty magical!

The purpose of this trip is, of course, Adepticon… which I had never heard of before, but Nick has been salivating at the opportunity to go since the day I first proposed starting a podcast. As for Aaron… well, I’m sure once he regains consciousness (hopefully not while he’s still in the trunk, but whatever) I’m sure he’ll be super excited too!

I’m bringing my laptop and will try to post some pictures, and definitely a few battle reports, while we’re there, so check back frequently for new pictures, information, and so on! And again, if you happen to be at Adepticon yourself, come find us in the Iron Arena all day Saturday… we’ll be the three confused, slightly terrified looking Canadians wearing white Combo Smite uniforms!
