Arcane Assist Episode 10

It’s our eleventh episode, and here’s warning that the topic is a bit heavy.  We spend some time talking about tiebreakers in swiss paired steamroller events.  This is a topic we get asked about a lot, and everyone has a favourite answer.  We go over several of them, including some hybrid solutions, and discuss what works about them, what doesn’t, and why the puzzle of second place has plagued EOs and players alike....

Arcane Assist, our seventh episode, recorded on site at Crucible in sunny Orlando, Florida.  Brian White and Tom Guan guest star on this episode and both of them enjoy more than a little Canadian Maple Whiskey.  We may digress slightly from our topic, which is reporting the Crucible experience, but more than make up for it with some really hilarious insights from a couple of the greatest minds in the game.  Let us know what you think,...
