I welcome @dok on as the first co-host the show has had to discuss the methodology of the power rankings following some good discussion in our show thread.

Re: Casters of Valhalla

Sigh...I was replaced with an A- level cohost (but don’t worry I included Raelin in that ranking).

Casters of Valhalla

So, I think Iíve addressed just about everything in this thread. However, now that at least my baseline metric is established, Iím more than happy to continue the discussion!

But I like trying to get any idea of what the bottom half looks like even though itís almost taboo in competitive talk. Maybe you feel the same way.

One of the main differences is that I live in the world of Online Heroscape(OHS) and we use many formats that do not always see competitive play at a place like Gencon, that really put your skills to the test with lesser known units. Our recent event was a Reverse Draft and there were some pretty low ranked figures represented in the drafts.(Such as Khosumet, Pelloth)

I will check out your ranking system... are you going to start ranking VC figures?

Iím going to update my rankings again soon, there are some changes I want to make for some units to go up a tier and some to go down a tier (maybe one to drop two). Iíll probably post the unordered list first, then post the ordered one when I eventually have it all rounded out (cuz it takes forever).

I have made a VC one too, but that one definitely needs an update, it doesnít even have several of the newest releases. I also donít play nor have that much VC, so itís a lot of me theorizing and going off of hearing peopleís opinions and battle reports on them. But I do like them for the most part, and dissecting the competitive game with them.

Re: Casters of Valhalla

What a year 2020 has been. Holy hell. I was glad to listen to my friends @OrcElfArmyOne and @dok talk Scape, as I resign myself to not seeing them this year.

Thanks DS! I’ll be on a biweekly schedule through at least the summer. Hopefully, I’ll see you next year in Indy (assuming this year doesn’t happen).

Re: Casters of Valhalla

Thanks!

I think, even if it there is a GenCon this year (which I doubt, because I've always thought they run a responsible business), you would not be foolish enough to attend.

See you next year, I hope.

Re: Casters of Valhalla

I wanted to come back to this thread & say how much I enjoyed this one. I think the double host format works very well; I've also enjoyed the segments that were with just Ken. I think the compact structure also helped me, as a member of the listening audience, hear the flow and stick with it.

Thanks for the feedback! This is the sort of feedback that really helps. Having only two people definitely makes it a lot cleaner and easier to follow. The next one (already recorded) has 4, but the structure of that one still makes it very easy to follow. Iím thinking 3 as an upper limit now, with a preference towards shorter episodes and 2 hosts.
