DM Missive: Aussie Masters 2022 lists review

November 28, 2022

It's beginning to look a lot like... the Australian Masters! That's right, just around the corner is perhaps the best event since the last one that happened. 
Ten of the nations' most competitive / lucky / accidental winners are gathering to decide who will take the top spot as Australia's best. The lists have been submitted, the first round already drawn, and so all that is left is to take a look at what each player thinks is a winning army.

Cast your votes, read over Ken Ferris (competitor and event organiser) Form Guide for the odds (see link at the bottom of this post), take a punt, and join in on the action!

Don't forget, the narrative event which is taking place the day before is still accepting generals. It's set to be a tip top weekend so don't miss that one.  https://fb.me/e/2XKvT0VQl

Enjoy!

Direct Misfire Nights: CoK 2022 wrap up and results

January 23, 2022

Hark, doth thine ears deceive? That's right, 3 episodes in one week! (take this as an apology for not releasing anything at the end of last year)

It's been a long 2 days with the lads having participated in the Australian Clash of Kings 2022 tournament. Now that it's done and dusted, join them as they briefly recount their games, discuss some highlights and compare their predictions from the previous episode. 

Once again this is a "Nights" episode so editing is minimal, volume levels are a bit all over the place (hopefully it's not too bad), and the profanity sky rockets. Anyone with sensitive ears best avoid. 

 

Otherwise, Enjoy!

Ps: we discuss a YouTube channel in this episode. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfCORDh_gubyKjuWpJTo6QQ
