To all our Canadian listeners: happy Turkey Day!
To everyone else on Earth… happy Monday, I guess? Unless you’re not reading this or listening to this on a Monday, in which case… yeah, moving on.
The Retribution CID released, and we sit down and talk about it! Takes us a bit longer than usual, but it is interesting stuff, give it a listen while eating turkey… or whatever you’re eating, I suppose!
Also, a heads up: Marc is away in a cottage in the middle of nowhere for the next week or so to try and get all his writing done for the year (November and December are extremely, extremely busy months), so can’t say for sure there will be a podcast next week, but we will try!

This week, Marc, Nick, and Darrell sit down with the WTC list statistics, and find a couple we like and a couple we think are insane.
Best of luck to all the teams on their way or already in Poland for the tournament! And, of course, bester of luck to the Team Canadas (even if Nick is upset about double-Cryx teams…)

Hey folks! This week’s podcast isn’t a little late because Marc forgot to upload it last night but because… uhhh… reasons?
We take a look at some of the lists we were running back in the misty origins of 3rd edition, comparing those lists to how we would play the same casters today. We also speak a little bit about theme lists, and Marc’s continued dislike of how they’re handled… but they are what they are, right?
Give it a listen! Let us know what ya think!

Team Combo Smite went off to Guelph to attend a WTC-style event… which, as we’ve said before, is often the best WarMachine you can enjoy!
And we recorded within hours of finishing the event… so you can all learn from the guys’ mistakes!
… I mean ‘victories’. Yeah. Those. Learn from ’em!

Our 200th episode! Crickey!
There she is. Our trusty logo, lovingly created by Aaron years ago… ah, those were the days! These days we talk for almost 2 hours on a host of questions submitted by fans (thanks guys!).
Give it a listen, with our deepest appreciation for everyone who has been with us this whole ride, or for however long you have been with us!
Here’s to 200 more!
The Combo Smite crew did a couple tournaments! Different ones! We all learned things!
Plus we discuss the new Steamroller, and the Retribution CID. Because we’re all about that topical stuff…
Give it a listen! Hope you guys enjoy!
Also, a quick thank you Marc-Andre and Chandler for your feedback about last week’s episode. We’ll bring up the points you mentioned next week when we record again. But thanks guys, I’m really flattered you listen!

Happy Canada Day!
Last week Darrell, Nick, and I sat down to discuss everything in Crucible Guard. Great chat, and it reminded me how much I’m looking forward to trying CG out when they come out!
We discuss all the warcasters, units, warjacks… the whole nine yards. And here is the full 2.45 hours worth of discussion, with my apologies for how long it took to get out.
Next week we’ll be discussing the new Steamroller, the Retribution CID, and a tournament Nick and Darrell attended!

This week we tackle some Champions lists for the WarMachine side of the equation.
And I realize how long it’s been since I’ve made a list… it’s been awhile! Downside to playing a lot of Haley3 Gravediggers… no need to modify the list ever!
Nick tackles Retribution, Darrell handles Menoth, and I do the Cygnar! Give it a listen, let us know what you think!

New week, new podcast! This week we’re discussing the changes to ADR and Champions, specifically (although with a quick tip-of-the-hat to the death of Divide and Conquer).
Give it a listen! Next month we may even play in a Champions-style event, so this might just be useful information!

Here’s the link! With a big thank you to Benoit for sending it to me (my Google-fu is weak).
The 2018 State of the Game Address
And another huge thank you to Nick and Darrell for going to this when I was exhausted and run down at the end of the tournament. Glad we had some Combo Smite presence at it!
