TPC17: Has the meta really changed?

Hello again, all! It’s that time of the month: Troll Patrol time! This month, the aY and Dust discuss if the meta has actually changed in Warmachine.   <Just an FYI, we recorded on location at BK-Con, so there may be some slight background noise. I’ve done my best to remove most of it.>   Also, for more details about the Vengeance/Exigence release event in Durham, Ontario, e-mail Shawn Lazaros:...

The Road to WTC: Meta Dependence in List Design…. Part 1

(Assume usual inserted thingy here about footnotes and the suchliike) So this is a subject I’ve thought about a lot1 and it’s an easy one to overthink.

Mathematically Proving John Demaris’ Feelings

This article is a follow-up to Episode 122.  The MoM crew asked me to do two things:  Prove John’s feelings with math. Illustrate the breaking points in significance for DEF and ARM. That first bullet is going to be challenging.  John is a complex guy.  He’s like an onion: comprised of layers.  I’ll do my best to construct a postulate based on those layers, but like an onion, when you get into one the wrong way… things might go...
