Three words: Onyx Contact Force

So with todays offering, we tried to do sort of a "mixed bag" type discussion, with Joel bouncing random topics off of us and little to no actual organization.  For the most part I feel pretty good about how it went, but one thing jumped out at me while editing: the conversation always seemed to come back to Combined Army and their new Onyx Contact Force.  

So if you're interested in this hot new Sectorial army, this might just be the episode for you!  The thoughts on it are a little disjointed throughout the episode but it comes up quite a bit.  I'd still love for us to do a more organized, coherent segment on the Sectorial(and we probably will) but for now, please enjoy these thoughts!

We also talk about "Problem Units" such as Haramaki Fireteams with multiple missile launchers, Fireteam Duo, D-Charges, Order Count, and going first in games now that HSN3 is here.  There's also some talk about Blood in the Sun, JSA, and a few pieces of listener feedback.

Greg was running late to our EP11 recording, so Sean and Joel sat down to talk on a topic near and dear to their hearts: The Morat Aggression Force!

Morats have been the subject of much malign since the pre-and-subsequent-release of HSN3 and frankly, Joel and Sean just don't see it!  Since Joel has recently picked up some Morats to carry the torch at Blood in the Sun, we felt this lack of our Triad/Haris Fireteam would be a great opportunity to muse on the changes to Morats, and what Joel has come to like about the Sectorial since diving in a few weeks ago.

The intro music is KMFDMs "URBAN MONKEY WARFARE" and the outtro is KMFDMs "STURM & DRANG".

Welcome to a purple laden episode 10!

Hot on the heels of the Twinfinity Open 2016, we spend most of our time talking about it!  It came off as a pretty great success so we engage in a lot of conversation about the event itself: Sean from the TO's perspective, and Greg and Joel from that of the players.  We also discuss, in sort of vague terms, our plans of expansion for next years event.

We move on to talk a little more about HSN3, now that we've had some time to really digest it.  Joel also asks what we think on the subject of Courtesy Lists where it relates to Holoprojector, and we discuss that.  Please keep in mind that we recorded this two days before Army 6 courtesy lists became "Holoprojector Friendly", so yes we know that some of what we say about this topic is now invalid.  However I left it in the episode because some of Greg's points are still perfectly valid.

 

We field a quick listener email from the Madison, WI community and call it a wrap.
