We also get a lot of blood all over the podcast… I mean… it’s messy. Really, a very disturbing amount of violence occurs.

But not really. Give it a listen, let us know what you think!

Let’s discuss it’s glory…
(Can you tell Marc is operating on 4 hours of sleep? It’s subtle, right? Or glorious… subtly glorious?)

Big thank you to Steve for trying to join (and getting about halfway through!), hopefully next time we can iron out a few more of the audio glitches!

Podcast 125 – Windsor Steamroller Tournament!

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!

Tournament Video – Store Wars 2015 – Hobby Kingdom #2

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)

Tournament Video – Day of Valour – The Hobby Kingdom – May 16

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)

Tournament Podcast 016 – Nick and Marc's Experiences at the SOO!

Nick and I went to the Southern Ontario Open a few weekends ago, and then recorded a podcast about it! Huzzah!

Southern Ontario Open 006

Listen to learn why you might want to consider playing your lists BEFORE going to a tournament, and see if I’ve managed to learn how to use Siege (answer: yes!).

Todd and Nick also played a game for the podcast this week… I’m hoping we can record that one later and use it later (because more podcasts are always better!), but we didn’t have time before Monday morning. But still, a good podcast!

(*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!)
