Tournament 006 – Game Summit Masters – Nick’s Adventure with Mercs.

A couple weeks(*) ago Marc and I made our way to Ottawa to compete in our first Master’s event. I’ve been lazy writing it up but finally here are some Batreps!!
(*Marc: It’s been a couple months now, and Nick hasn’t finished this… so I’ve stepped in to give a quick overview of his games from an outsider’s perspective. You’re welcome, Internet. You’re welcome)IMG_4614 copy

I have been playing my Mercenaries for the past few months so it was natural that I would be taking them to this event. I debated my list choices for a while and settled on my 3 favourite Mercs casters, Gorten MACBAIN and Damiano. Continue reading

Tournament 004 – Nick and Aaron’s Experiences

Last weekend I ran a 50 point Steamroller event that Nick and Aaron attended. It was a tonne of fun, and Nick’s already posted his written batreps, but here’s the podcast we recorded shortly afterwards and I FINALLY managed to finish editing!

Podcast 038 – Menoth Vs. Mercs – Harby Vs. Gorten – Hardcore is like Camping

In a few weeks, a couple of the Combo Smite hosts (myself included) are heading down to Burlington, Ontario for a 50pt Hardcore tournament. As a result, I was happy to get some practice in with Nick for this unique (and fascinating!) format!title

This is Nick’s first time playing a Hardcore game, *and* his first time trying out this particular list… this is my 2nd attempt at Hardcore, but the 3rd time I’ve used this list (or one similar to it, at least!)… sad that numbers like those make me the most experienced out of our group! The game was a little bit gong-showy, but as a practice game it was pretty solid, and I think there’s unquestionably a lot to learn from our attempts!

Podcast 018 – Mercenaries Vs. Menoth – Analysis of the Effect of Altitude on Flamability

For this week’s report, it was my turn to tangle with Nick. My noble co-host was uncertain about whether he wanted to play Mercenary or Retribution… so he just made one of each list and went from there! As for my part, I kinda wanted to give Nick a chance to take a swing at my tournament lists from last week (the same ones from the “Tournament 002” report we did!), just to see if he would’ve fared any better than the rest of my opponents did. We were also doing 10 Minute Timed Turns for the first time, and I figured using a list I was at least somewhat familiar with would be wiser than starting something from scratch!

After looking at Nick’s two lists, both with colossus and both having some rather strong assassination vectors, I decided to go with my eFeora list. Nick, for his part, decided that taking the slightly-less flammable Gorten was probably wiser than going with the very flammable Issyria.
