Good stream tonight. Sorry that you have had trouble saying my screen name a couple times (thundersho55). It's show, if it matters.

I found something funny afterwards though. I was playing AZ with Legs tempest and a couple others. I played shielding winds and then forgot about it. Later i was trying to heal and i was healing 2 less than i should have, so i tried to put in a bug report from the feedback button. Then i realized i wasn't on the Internet on my tablet, after i sent it of course. And then i realized the shielding winds was reducing the healing, and vowed to play shielding winds even less.

After that i found some thing that is a problem but not a bug. Absolute Zero's trash reads "Absolute Zero's tras
H"
I guess the label reached it line limit so it had to go to the next line, but it was funny to realize what happened, especially after feeling dumb for a bit about the game and the Internet.

Anyways, keep up the good work and get us Unity soon

There's also a typo somewhere of "thier" for "their" but I forget where I saw it. I'll keep an eye out.


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Easy for me to find when I can search the text of everything. "Do all players want to shuffle thier trash into their deck?"

Fixed =)

Null-Point doesn't show the damage calculation properly when it cancels the damage, that's an outstanding issue we're looking into.

That is a bug, and has been tricky to pin down. It shows up in other places too. We'll sort it out one of these days.

Yeah I wasn't able to figure out the Null point thing til I played Frost bound drain and took less damage than i thought I should.

I knew if I was lazy enough someone would find it for me. ;)

Nice work!

Last night we played Ambuscade and whipped him good.

Next week we have a special guest: Evildicemonkey AKA Matchstickman! And we'll be revealing more content from the upcoming Mini-Pack 1!

Y'Know, I was watching the VOD of this and wondering why Vengeance was seperated into the Season 2 pass since we hadn't had any other content announced, and then the pre order announcement this morning happened.  Makes total sense now

We had another good stream last night, thanks to Matchstickman for helping out as our special guest! Since Jeremy (our twitch wizard) is at PAX South we don't have the highlight or YouTube links yet, but those will be updated soon.

Tune in next week for more sneak peeks!

Matchstickman played a blinder, and Ronway was not mentioned for the entire stream. It was awesome!

Advanced Baron Blade in Silver Gulch.

Fanatic, Tachyon, Bunker, and Wraith (though maybe not that order)

 

It was a bit close getting past the front side. Baron Blade got 15 cards in the trash, but was knocked to zero before it got back to his start of turn. He had 26 hit points and 13 (I think) cards in the trash at one point.

As expected, only the front side was much of a challenge. The question on the back side was more about how quickly Baron Blade would get knock out and who would get the final blow.

That was quite a game last night. We got pretty deep into figuring out a Forced Deployment problem, succeeded, and then another Forced Deployment came out!

We took out Advanced Ambuscade, though he battered the heroes a bunch at the beginning.

Someone in the chat posted a difficult matchup against Advanced Cosmic Omnitron. Anyone know what that was exactly, maybe we'll try it next week!

That was me!  Ronway tried valiantly, but neither of us have succeeded yet.

 

I have to say, you're setting yourselves up for a world of frustation if you take this on in the Stream, but that's your prerogative.

I won the GI Bunker/AZ/RC Wraith.

 

It was great draws by the heroes and consistent luck having a non-drone to put on top with Eyepiece.

Bunker got going super fast, rocked Gatling-armor-Recharge for a while, then went Upgrade to turret with Gatling/armor/Omni/Ammo Drop/Flak.

Wraith was clearing his deck, alternating with razor+2 when I could get away without a second Eyepiece.

AZ started off great with 2 frost drains and Transducer, which was big for clearing the components at start, Ended up getting ridiculously built up due to Wraith burying destruction cards and drones.

 

It was a perfect storm of starting hands, some card luck after that and really great deck order on Omnitron's side.  All were around half health when Omni was finished off.

Twice we got lucky with Ruins playing villain cards, two krakens were great allies for us. RC wraith put one in play first round (II for belt and Eye) second one was on top as well, which was great considering the first round EPE.  Krakens took it from 11hp to 1.  Was very nice of them.

 

Again, it was about as perfect a match as I've seen.

Wow.  That really is some amazing luck!  Even regular cosmitron is a pain against these three (and, of course, GI Bunker's base power is wasted in this mode), but advanced...  I take off my imaginary hat to you.  :)

We returned to the win column with a match against Advanced Baron Blade last night. He came close to completing his plan, but the heroes stopped him just in time!

Next week we're hoping to have some sneak peeks at Rook City content, so be sure to tune in.

This week we had the full team on stream for the first time ever! Check out the archive if you haven't seen it yet for some Rook City previews.

We'll be traveling next week so there will probably not be a stream, but we'll be back after PAX East!
