Battle 033: Menoth vs Retribution, Vindictus vs Issyria: Turians vs Asari!

Okay, so *maybe* I just bought Mass Effect 3 and have been playing it for the first time… great game (much tighter than 1, way less restrictive than 2), and despite knowing how awful (AWFUL-awful) the ending is, I’m enjoying it so far! And both the names “Vindictus” and “Issyria” sound like they were snipped straight from the game… but I digress!

At the behest of the greater Combo Smite community, Ozzie has decided to pull out his Retribution again so that we can get a batrep with the angry elves in it! He’s a trooper.

Podcast 017 – Retribution Vs. Circle – Tactical-Blunders-R-Uz

IMG_2555 copy

This week on the podcast we feature a game between my Retribution forces and Gaven’s forces of Circle.

(Marc: Before we get into the podcast, I want to apologize to all the listeners: Nick’s partner had a medical emergency during the last week and so we had to push the recording back… but since we want to stick to Monday releases for the podcast, we were forced to record on Sunday while Nick was still in the hospital attending to her recovery. I’ve managed to get out *most* of the background noise from the hospital, but the audio quality will still be a bit more sporadic than usual. However, I’m extremely grateful for Nick’s dedication for recording anyway, and I hope that you can forgive the audio for this episode! Also, this was supposed to go live at 7am today, but for some reason got pushed back to 11:30… sorry about that, folks!)

Practice Makes Slightly Less Imperfect

This weekend Aaron and I got together to play some practice games in preparation for an upcoming 50 pt Steamroller at the local gaming store The Game Chamber.IMG_2515

We both needed practice getting through all our activations fast enough to play on the clock and we both had lists we needed to test out to see how they worked together on the table. The main idea today was to just play the first couple turns of the game with no pressure about losing because they were just practice games.

I told Aaron upfront that I was definitely going to be taking Issyria. I also knew I wanted to try out Destors because of the Issyria challenge thread on the Ret forums. I also had just happened to finish my epic My Little Pony Destors conversion so they were definitely going to be in my list the rest I still had to figure out. I went with: Continue reading
