Re: Casters of Valhalla

I’ve been catching up on these and really enjoying them. In the Strategy episode with Jexik I really thought of the difference between strategy and tactics. Army construction, which I think was covered really well falls under strategy more, whereas ideas like development, tethering, IGPV, and risking it when down are more tactical ideas.

Must say I’m really looking forward to a future map discussion episode. I remember the days where split start zones were starting to happen and there weren’t many BftU maps around. Moltenclaw killed the lava capped FotA arguments, and I’m curious what other general concepts for mapmaking are still out there and alive and unattempted (negative space as LOS blockers?)

Hey, thanks for listening! Yeah, I'm hoping to record the map-making episode early this summer, but it'll depend on whether I can get the secret guest to record with us...

Re: Casters of Valhalla

Iíve worked at my current job for over 8 years now and this is the first podcast Iíve ever downloaded on to my phone so that I can listen to while I work. Just got back in to the game after like 10 years and Iím soaking up all this information like a sponge! I can literally feel myself becoming a better Scaper while Iím listening to you guys.

Never been to Gencon, never played in a tournament, never really played competitively. You guys are changing the way I think about units, maps, battles and army builds. Wish I woulda come back in to the game sooner so I could have got some cons in before COVID crippled the amazing social aspect of this game.

Love the casts, keep em comin. Only on episode 7 but I just had to tell you guys that at least one of the two people listening has never played competitive scape and even though Iíve never been too competitive, I still enjoy listening to you guys talk about this game I (we) love so much.

Hey, thanks so much for the kind words! I'm glad you're enjoying it, and it's really cool to see the energy you're bringing to the game with your unboxings! The tourneys will be back soon enough!

I really hope so. You guys make Gencon sound like a damn good time. I hope to make it out to one. I havnt heard you guys talk about anyone from California so if Iím able to go someday, I will definitely be bringing a Cali Crew! (Even if itís just me and my bro haha) And Thank you, Iím honored you gave my stuff a watch! Looking forward to more cast content and more learning new strategies to blindside my brother with!!

It's definitely worth it if you can make it out! Yeah, I'm not sure I know anyone who's come from California off the top of my head. We have some Pacific Northwest players like Dysole, but I'm not sure if we have anyone regular from California.

For sure! Been trying to start teaching my good friends who have been watching my series how to play. So maybe by the next Gencon I really will have a California squad to come with me. Also once my son gets old enough, heís going to learn how to play too whether he likes it or not haha! I already know Iím going to be ďthat dadĒ Iíll continue to do my small part to keep the Flames of Heroscape burning from all the way out here in Cali! I know you will be doing the same!

Re: Casters of Valhalla

Menchi and that group came from California, I think... probably been awhile since they came though.

Yup, Menchi (who I think went 4-1 day 1) and RoninValentina were a part of that group in I think Ď09 or Ď10. Iíve been to both NorCal and SoCal tournaments but neither group was as big or GenCon focused in their heyday as the New England, DFW, or Iowan groups.
