FTGT Turns 4

I'm almost a month late, but this April marks the fourth birthday of the blog. While we've been pretty inactive of late, we haven't completely folded up shop yet, and with the impending release of 8th Edition we have the mental wheels turning and typing fingers stretching. We haven't had a recent podcast because of technical difficulties - Chandler's computer died and as the keeper of the podcast, we haven't had a chance to record again. Despite being quiet as far as blogging and podcasting goes, we're still gaming, painting, and so on.

LVO Top 8 Breakdown

Following up from yesterday's post, I'm going to take a quick look at the Top from the LVO, what armies are represented, and a stab at providing my bracket (as well as a bracket for you to make predictions until the round starts shortly).

You can also check out Frontline's breakdown here.

LVO Day 1 Top Player Breakdown

After day one of LVO was in the books, I decided to take a look at the remaining undefeated players from this massive field. After the first three rounds, there were 39 players with a 3-0 record. For ease of data entry, I'm only looking at this segment of the field (for now at least). Note, this does not include 2-0-1 players who are undefeated but will have a tough road to make the cut for Day 3.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 49: Talking about the ATC with Shane

What is up Everyone? On today's podcast, Chandler and Evan sit down with Shane Grubb, one of the men behind the American Team Championship, or ATC.  He joins us for the first half of the show to talk about the event, location, and some key dates that everyone should be aware of in the coming months.  He also goes into how the ATC was formed, some of the interesting things that could be coming out in the next year, and some of the challenges behind not only putting on a tournament, but a team tournament at that.  Shane also explains a little bit about his World War 40k narrative campaign that sounds like one of the coolest player driven stories.  He is a wealth of knowledge and brings it all to the table.

Shane gives us some inside info on the ATC and World War 40k.

Facing The Grey Tide Podcast - Episode 46: The Lost Episode

What is up Everyone? Over a month ago, Chandler, Evan, and Bryan sat down to talk about Genestealer Cult, Tourney Prep, some games that we got in, and the amount of painting and hobbying we had accomplished.  Unfortunately, That episode was lost in the warp, UNTIL NOW.  The guys sit down almost a month out and after not having done a podcast in a long time, it turned into one of our old fashioned podcasts.  Lots of rambling, lots of talking, and of course, lots of Nids.

Even the Lost Episodes are eventually found.
