Jeremy McClure, saying “Ok” or maybe “I need a spliff”
Jeremy is a very active member of the Southern Ontario Warmachine Meta, attending at least a couple tournaments a month and playing regularly throughout the week.

I got an opportunity to ask Jeremy a few questions about his experience at the seventh world ender!

Jeremys winning lists!

QUESTIONS:

1. Hi Jeremy and congrats on the win! How long have you been playing the game  and how many factions do you play competitively? Do you consider Legion  your main faction? Was this your first World Ender?

 Thank you androgynous Party Foul duck! I have been playing the game since 2012. I started by playing Cygnar, and switched to Legion in 2014. I consider legion my main faction as I have not played anything else for almost 2 years. I am lucky that I am able to attend a lot of tournaments so I believe this was my 5th world ender.

2. You played Saern tier and Epic Vayl Tier for the tournament. I understand you’ve been experimenting with the Blight bringer for Quite sometime but decided not to bring it along, why is that? Also, Saern Tier, that seems a bit unusual, can you explain the benefits of using her in tier over not? 

I played about a dozen games with BB trying to see if it clicked with my style, but I find it very slow and a bit cumbersome to make use of the buffs it offers to infantry. I haven’t played much infantry in the past couple years, so it will take some getting used to.

WARMACHINE BOOT CAMP

I was listening to Chain attack and Josh mentioned how he wished there were like little chess quizzes for warmachine that would help him sharpen his strategy and tactics.

Well, we thought that was a very interesting idea so we are going to try out a number of them and see if people like them and if they will help. To start we will do some pretty easy do or die type scenarios and then move on to try and some complicated ones that might involve threat ranges, scalping out trouble makers and deployment.

These aren’t going to be cut and dry solutions, there’s always more than one way to skin a cat in warmachine!  Here’s our first one, post possible solutions and any feedback on how to improve this type of thing is very welcome!

OTC 2016 Lists Post #1

So, after taking from what I could assume to be FAR too long to do this. I’ve gone and checked all the lists, fought with some people to get them to correct them and have them all formatted for posting (Special thanks to JDWhitee for the assistance, I didn’t even think about thanking him earlier. I blame lack of sleep and my eyes wishing to bleed after staring at my computer screen for far too long). YES, it is across 3 posts, only because the data is too large and because we didn’t have a system for everyone to submit their lists on, I’m still working on normalizing the formatting so I can make an excel spreadsheet. Though my Spreadsheet-fu is not the greatest, I will soldier on and get it done. Though the hardest part is over, lists have been verified and if I made any mistakes (which I most likely made a few) feel free to SEND an email to ontarioteamchampionship@gmail.com, please and thank you.

Oh and click on the list to open it. If you’re lazy scroll to the bottom and click Expand All.

Anyways, without further adieu.

World Ender # 7

Congrats to Jeremy M on his win at todays World Ender.  26 players showed up today at Black Knight Games.  5 rounds later Jeremy was the only one left standing undefeated.  There were 17 Colossals/gargants there!  Dave G had 3!

I’m sure Greg will track down Jeremy and get an interview on the books asap.

Oh good. Someone let me write on a website.

So, I was told to post a brief introduction. I didn’t know how to do that, so here’s an OKC profile.

I apologize in advance for some of the shit I’ll write in the weeks to come.

Hugs and slugs,

Zosia

My self-summary
Likes: making/wearing costumes, cats, acoustic music, live shows, band t-shirts, road trips with good friends, playing pool, reading, plays on words, reading/ writing poetry, sketching, quiet nights, big dreams, board games, tabletop games (like Warmachine, duh), pub trivia, Boston, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, proper grammar, correct spelling, the Oxford comma, and online etiquette

Dislikes: stopping at yield signs, yielding at stop signs, the word “saltation,” the cast of Jersey Shore, people who don’t say “thank you,” bratty children with oblivious parents, Comic Sans in the workplace, unnecessary exclamation points, not replacing the toilet paper, Cryx, and pickles on the same plate as my fries

I am a mom, but I don’t wear mom pants.

What I’m doing with my life
playing Warmachine, not playing Warmachine, trying to understand the Star Wars universe, getting caught up on Supernatural

I’m really good at
…heckling, making dick jokes, napping anywhere

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: HP, fantasy
Movies: Anything with dragons, a battle between Heaven and Hell, or superheroes. My favorite trilogy is Underworld.
Shows: Supernatural is all I really watch lately.
Music: anything acoustic, Taylor Swift, or something I can cry to
Food: I like most food, just not anything too spicy.

The six things I could never do without
• my framily (friends who are like family to me) and my daughter
• my cats
• my phone
• water
• air
• FB forum arguments

I spend a lot of time thinking about
…what life was like before the Haley2 errata.

On a typical Friday night I am
…hanging out with my nerds playing with Toy Soldiers and watching shitty Nick Cage movies.

You should message me if
…you wanna talk about the latest errata, dojo lists, exchange cat pics, or discuss JVM’s hair.
