Episode 165 – What To Expect: Trollbloods

We continue our Developing Player Series where each month we cover a faction and talk about what to expect when playing against that faction. We talk about common builds you will see, common “Gotchas”, and target prioritization against those lists. This month we discuss Trolls.

Hosts: Trevor, Jay, and Scott

Help Us Get To The WTC!

We want to go to the Warmachine/Hordes World Team Championship’s. We want to record a game every round. We want to present scores, analysis, commentary, and player interviews for everyone to see. We want Warmachine to receive the type of coverage that other sports and e-sports do. We want to present this to the world, LIVE, while its happening, streaming through twitch.tv to many multi-media devices via their powerful and robust network and apps.

However a trip to Poland is not cheap, and we enjoy a hobby where marketing and advertising dollars are very limited. We do have sponsors but they simply cannot afford to provide us with the required amount and we are left to provide a significant portion of the costs ourselves. These costs are not limited to the plane tickets ($1300-1500 each) and other travel costs but also includes the increased equipment costs necessary to present this sort of experience for the viewer.

So we have a plan, on how we can get us to Poland to provide you with the entertainment you value, while selling you additional entertainment to fund the trip.

We have recorded 12 episodes of a podcast series interviewing various people from the community that we find interesting. These interviews will be approximately 1 hour long and cover a very broad range of topics. The 12 episodes sell for a total cost of $20 and can be purchased here: http://www.chain-attack.tv/downloads/getting-personal-season-1-entire-album/

(or as a single download here: http://www.chain-attack.tv/downloads/getting-personal-season-1-entire-album-single-download/)

Individual episodes are available for purchase for $2 a piece and can be purchased here: http://www.chain-attack.tv/downloads/category/podcasts/

 

Our guests on these 12 episodes are:

Episode 1 – “Menoth”John Christensen – Podcast legend, The Podfather and special friend of Chain Attack.
Episode 2 – Tony Ricchio – Special friend of Chain Attack, huge math nerd, and Scott Wray’s Kryptonite.
Episode 3 – Monte Krol – Blizzard employee, fan of Chain Attack, and a crazy Goblin.
Episode 4 – Brynn Holdstock – Team Canada WTC member, and hands down our Favorite Canuck.
Episode 5 – Chilly Winters – Podcaster from Road to War, Lyle Lowery look-alike, judge, and super convention goer.
Episode 6 – Nigel Brooks – One of the funniest men in Warmachine podcast history and member of the legendary yet now defunct podcast Focus and Fury.
Episode 7 – Michael Stubbs – Illustrious member of the NJSOBs and the only person we know who will gladly drop his pants to show you his scar.
Episode 8 – Dan Berger – Fellow podcaster over on Forgot to Feat and self proclaimed huge nerd.
Episode 9 – Ashton Holbrook – Amazing painter extraordinaire, creator of the “Cadillac of Skorne”.
Episode 10 – Casey Willis – Co-Executive Producer of the TV show Archer, and one of the funniest most awesome guys who play’s with little metal men.
Episode 11 – Stuart Gorman – Writer of the weekly blog “What I Learned From The Forum This Week” and probably fake Irishman.
Episode 12 – Gail Martindale – Organizer of major Warmachine events in California, WTC Team USA Selection Committee member 2013 and, rumor has it, a woman!

In our opinion this seems like the best way to fund this trip. We certainly will not turn down donations and you can find a donation link for this project on the right side of this page, but that is not the primary way in which we hope to make this dream happen. Instead we want to provide you with a product, and that product is entertainment!
