    Awesome report. One thing that would have been nice is if you had discussed the reasoning behind the changes from the previous lists.

      Will keep this in mind! Nick is just experimenting to see what his optimal amount of warp charge is when traded off with additional gifts, etc…

      On my side, the changes were primarily to get more ablative wounds into the deathstar, and fenrisian wolves are great for that!

    Great report once again, love the style.

    I’m glad you guys talked about the importance of managing time at the end of the video. Playing slow is a huge problem for players having to sit through their opponent taking the majority of the time during a game. It is really frustrating when you can’t finish a game and you barely got to play your army as your opponent was busy moving 60 warp spiders or something.

    I think introducing something akin to chess clocks would be really good for the scene. It’ll make players cognizant of the amount of time being eaten up by them or their opponents, and make you consciously play faster. As you guys pointed out, it’s not impossible, top players often are able to play big armies pretty fast like Frankie does with Battle Company. But it needs to be drilled in, and only real way to do it is do a systematic change.

    Apps and smartphones/pads are plentiful these days and will make this pretty easy without needing to invest in separate clocks (although you can if you really want to). I think we can put this up to a vote as a community for the ITC and maybe try it in a few tournaments too.

    As it stands, slow playing by one side and not managing your time is a growing problem in the scene and it’s one of the things no one is really talking about, but it definitely sucks some of the fun out of games.

      Agreed 100%. Only thing I’d add is that for actual events I’d be a strong proponent of actual chess clocks rather than apps due to the plethora of possible issues with them, but for practice it’s great!
