Somebody's got a man crush? I did enjoy the commentary overall but there was a good dose of (to use a nice word) propaganda. I especially liked the claim that deluxe box sets were coming every 4 months for Cthulhu!? I hope they are available to do it again next year and if not maybe Brad and Steve Horvath?
Compared to some of the other commentary I heard from Thrones and Star Wars, Damon and Jaffer did an absolutely amazing job. The soothing quality of Damon's voice was remarked about in the live stream chat. Yes there was some confusion between the Yithian Scout and Peaslee but those cards have incredibly similar art on them and I've made the mistake a number of times with the cards right in front of me. I have doubts that they read this forum often, but very well done guys!
Next year I'm hopeful they'll be able to have multiple channels for the different games. That way I won't have to threaten to engage in fisticuffs with 212 Thrones players for the honor of the game we love.
Yeah I took note of his inquiry (Invulnerable?). When he claimed that Ultima Thule being a Lost Civilization and not a Location was surely a typo I took as a silly but understandable reaction to his disappointment/embarrassment. The inclusion of the new Lost Civilization subtype of course was for flavor reasons as well as some protection from effects that target Locations. I also noticed his 'chattiness' and as a spectator found it to be an affable quality.
Congrats to dwavenpony and all the other players, it looked like a great tournament.
Also big thanks to WWDrakey for putting up links to the games. I would've missed out on the coverage otherwise.
SPOILERS for those who haven't watched:
It's too bad Dave didn't use his Ice Shaft on Lucas Tetlow prior to replaying his Ultima Thule. I felt like that mistake more than anything caused his deck to stall out (he had mainly 3-cost characters in his hand at the time) and let Jeremy control the tempo from that point on. I think Dave mistakenly thought that invulnerable characters were immune to both wounding and destruction (you catch him saying that at the start of the game and he wasn't corrected).
