This weeks Strategy Street brought to you by Derp Flakes, a balanced daily breakfast! Also, pictures, with markings on them! Continue reading
We’re trying something new and exciting for this week (and a few other weeks coming up, due to Nick heading off to beautiful New Zealand for a month!). We’re going to focus very specifically on a list pairing in Legion, discussing why Nick built the lists he did first, and then come back after a local tournament to find out how he did!
It’s a new format, and I think it worked out really well… but let us know what you think!
Hey folks. Life conspired to keep Nick and I from recording this weekend. We should be recording the Legion Faction review this week, though, so you can all look forward to that!
In other news: One of the Team Canadas came in 3rd at the WTC!
We play against (and with!) these guys all the time, so it really feels like a win for us (in a much less direct way than for the guys who actually worked and earned the win!). So congrats again to Chris, Bubba, Tim, David, and Chandler!
Welcome dear readers to another Combo Smite battle report. This week we’ve got Nick’s Legion of Everblight up against Darrell’s Trollbloods. Additionally Darrell and Nick had a talk before the game and Darrell agreed to not drop Runes of War! Why, do you ask? Well, Runes has been on the podcast several times, on the video battle reports several times and quite frankly Darrell is sick of playing Runes of War despite it being the proper drop in his current list pairing. So in the interest of umm, making things interesting we’ve got eThagrosh vs eMadrak in an eBattle of the eTitans!
Today’s match up is between, actually its in the title you lazy reader. It won’t be an easy match up, there’s a lot I should be worried about. Soul denial is rampant in Legion since it’s so beast heavy and the fact that soulless is a thing. Saeryn’s feat is somewhat insane. Not sure how that one managed to slip through the cracks. Probably the same quality control that brought you Haley2 and Denny2. I guess by the time eSkarre came along they fired that person, because as I mentioned her feat is like eSkarre on crack! So I have a tough game ahead of me, most likely filled with adventure, heated skirmishes, and intense battles. Strap yourself in for the ride of a life time!
Here’s another commented Battle Report.
This week it’s my Legion against Darrell’s Trolls. I bring out a all-comers pThags list that I had kicking around and Darrell throws down pDoomy with Runes of War. Continue reading
I set a goal for myself to qualify for the 16 man invitational this year that I have failed to meet. Unfortunately, life happens and I didn’t make it out for as many events as I’d hoped I would. Marc still has a good chance to make it though. Especially with his impressive 3-1 finish at his event. Continue reading
I hope everybody is enjoying our new Video Battle Reports.
However, I still want keep providing as much tournament footage from the local meta as we can get.
I haven’t been able to make to many tournaments lately. Thankfully Marc was able to make it to the Phoenix Rising in St Catherine’s, Ontario for the latest Store Wars tourney. Unfortunately, my chances of qualifying are getting pretty slim these days.
(*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!)
