We'll take all the recruiting pressure we can manage. I'm pretty sure dok and I have been trying to get him to come for like 4 years now.

Re: 10 Points Under - Heroscape Casting Videos

Did someone say Saturday upload? No? Oh...

Well we've got one anyway. @Flash_19 had a really cool video idea a couple months ago that we're finally capitalizing on! Instead of the usual game commentary that the channel focuses on, we took a chance to play and commentate a game that focuses specifically on a map's strengths and weaknesses. We still of course talk matchup, strategy, etc., but it's all with the focus of the particular map in mind. @superfrog was kind enough to let us dig into one of this ARV contest submissions for this experiment, so we're trying out his map By Babylon's Rivers. It turns into a really cool discussion (I think), especially with master map-maker Flash giving his first-hand input!

With this new video type, let us know how it worked! We had fun, so if you do too we'd love to do more!

Re: 10 Points Under - Heroscape Casting Videos

We've got a new game format being showcased this week with Insanity of Battle! It's unfortunately the only Insanity of Battle game I have from the recent tournament, but luckily I was able to cast it with @dok who gives a great rundown on how the format functions at the beginning of the video! And to highlight the play for this format we've got @mtl1998 and @kevindola playing a semifinal game for OHS 36!

Also debuting in this video is my new draw-on-screen software! One bright side of losing my old computer is that my new one can run a lot more different softwares, so after a lot of experimentation I've finally been able to piece together a few apps to let me run a video and draw over it at the same time!


I've got a lot of good stuff coming up soon as well! As always if you're interested in helping me cast a game make sure you hit up the scheduling sheet so we can get something set up!

Re: 10 Points Under - Heroscape Casting Videos

I like how you now have the ability the draw on the screen. It helps a lot when considering movement options. You drawing how Pel had to move to engage Arkmer on level ground is a prime example. It's also useful for identifying specific squad figures out of all the ones on the map.

Since placement is so key in this format I thought I'd fill in the blanks from the first few placement choices. (Assuming my memory is correct.)

Kevin forced me to place first so I chose to place my B-11. I was fully expecting either one of my heroes to be Kevin's first choice. I would have responded with placing Nilfheim in water. I wanted to make sure I had the high ground so I chose to spread out my B-11 to protect as much of those level 4s and 3s in the middle as possible. Buccs with height are nasty.
Kevin responded wisely with placing Nilfheim in a safe spot.
I then placed one of my heroes, I forget which one. Probably Pel. dok goes into the reasoning why Pel in water is worse for me. I'd like to think I was thinking that on game day cuz what dok explained is correct.
Kevin placed either my dreadguls or his pirates. The order of these two is relatively unimportant. I was just happy to have both of my heroes not in the water.
I placed my other hero.
Kevin placed either my dreadguls or his pirates.

I think Bigga managed to capture the rest of the placement process.

Some of my thoughts on the game:
I think Kevin not going for 4 attacks of height on dreadguls was a mistake. He went for two attacks on even ground. I had two dreadgul moves that were questionable where I grabbed wannok and another where I got out of the water to make it so that the buccs would have had to attack up on the dreadgul. In retrospect, I don't like those moves by me because they both made me lose an attack on the given turn.

I forgot how important those 2 initiative rolls were. It was cool to relive those moments and to appreciate the luck I had. There was another moment too, but I'm not gonna spoil it.

It was interesting to hear different people's takes on my OM placement. OM placement is a really cool part of heroscape because I don't think it's an exact science. Everybody's a little different. I remember thinking conservatively about it this game. Especially after the first round where we came out close to even despite me auto-losing initiative, I figured all I had to do was keep up constant pressure and with me owning the high ground, I'd wind up with an advantage. I also respected the pirates bonus attack, so I remember wanting to give the B-11s OM2 on a certain round to make sure that, if they wanted to wipe out my B-11, it would be a tiny bit harder.

All in all, it was pretty special to get to hear what Bigga and dok had to say about the game. It's always a neat experience to get to play tournament games against people who have been in the scene longer and in a more dedicated way than me. The same goes for hearing what they think about my play.

Thanks for that explanation! I especially like reading your perspective for those moves -- that's great detail, especially the strategy on those first few turns of placing B-11/Nilf/Pel.

Haha, I remember thinking during the game with those moves that in a more standard format developing like that is totally normal and solid, but when watching this Insanity of Battle game I felt there's just so much value in hitting as hard and fast as you can.

I very much agree. Especially when playing armies/formats where OM placement matters a lot, like in the latter half of this game in particular after both main squads are worn down, I think OMs become a huge part of strategy that isn't focused on enough, because if you have a good plan and can keep your whole army relevant to the battle with good OM management it gives you a huge edge. You see that a lot from the top players, and this game was also an awesome example of that.

Thanks for posting your thoughts! I love being able to read and get perspective from the players! And also thanks so much for the kind words!!

It did. I do have two VCheese games that I'll be hitting, but they're from the first round. I'm really bummed especially that I lost that game.

Re: 10 Points Under - Heroscape Casting Videos

Speaking of the couple of games I do have from the VCheese event (see? I can do segues): this week we have the VCheese Round 1 game between @BodaciousBlood and @kevindola !! It's a dragon war between Braxas and Quahon and was a cool matchup to begin the event with. Returning to the show to help cast the action is @OrcElfArmyOne , and we have a great discussion over the game, ranging from talking development to inventing Heroscape terms to trying to math out attack rolls in our heads! Also another reason to be bummed that I lost so many VCheese videos: I was really looking forward to putting cheese over a ton of different figures' faces.

Quick note: I done messed up this video. My new technology is awesome, but I'm still getting used to it and when setting up to record this one I clicked the wrong button. I have a quick explanation at the beginning of the video, but you won't see any of the drawings I was doing during the game. You'll still see the cursor moving which for the most part is sufficient, but I'm really kicking myself for a dumb mistake. Fortunately I know what caused it and am keeping an eye for it -- I've already verified that the next video recorded the drawings without a hitch!
