FTN Episode 268 – We All Make Deployment Mistakes

FTN small square

As good as I claim to be I still make deployment mistakes that end up costing me the game. It’s easy for us to misjudge exactly what our opponent can do and end up in a tight spot just ‘going through the motions’ until time is called.  We shed some light on that stuff this episode to help you avoid the same fate I took this week.

Hey hey,

I think episode we focus on what the Nids and Orks can do to your face…   In all seriousness we discuss how quickly and reliably they can get across the field to tie up your lines or otherwise disrupt your plans.

This puts you on lock down for the rest of the game and the sad thing is that it was likely preventable.   you may not have ended up winning the game but you could at least ‘play’ the game the whole time.  Proper deployment on your side prevents you from having to play on the back foot hoping for successive strings of luck.

In the middle part of the show we’re joined by the ever charming AceFace. John Hickton.  We talk about his major tournament happening next weekend but we also talk, and focus, on his charity raffle.  This is for a great cause and a perfect way to still be a part of the event even if you can’t make it on sight.  This is an opportunity to win some amazing things and have 100% of the proceeds go to the charity.  Thanks for at least taking a look.

The last part of the show I’m reminded that I did NOT kick off the first show of the new year with new player tips.  Please give me another chance!  The second show of the year will have a newer player forucs

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.
