Tech Talk 28-B Siege: Spoiler Reviews

 

Part 2 of the latest Tech Talk, the only weekly Transformers TCG Podcast. Today we go over the plethora of Siege: War for Cybertron cards previewed over the last few weeks and how they may fit into existing strategies, or spawn their own new ones!


It's a long discussion since there were a lot of cards spoiled while we were on a one-week vacation hiatus, so enjoy!

Tech Talk 28-A: Current Happenings

 Due to Scott's Vacation, we had many Siege: War for Cybertron to go over and some other news so we decided to split the podcast into two "more easily digestible podcasts"..for the first one we go over recent Transformers TCG news: the potential information dropping over the summer convention series, the RotC metagame, and some general Wave 3 info.  


Stay tuned later in the week for part two where we go in depth over the new Siege Spoilers! 

Tech Talk 26: Interview with Drew and John (WOTC)

 We are very excited for this week's Tech Talk! Vince and Scott had the amazing opportunity to sit down with Drew Nolosco, Brand Manager of the Transformers TCG, and John Schork, PR director of the Transformers TCG, about the newly launched "Organized Play Programs" (In-Store Support) by WOTC, potential future expansion, the current RotC metagame, and then some long conversation about the upcoming Siege: War for Cybertron I set dropping June 28!  Do not miss this exciting interview! 

Tech Talk 25: Siege and OP

Scott and Vince break down the exciting "Organized Play" program with WPN in store support for events  and then start a lengthy discussion on the new set: Siege - War for Cybertron, including a deep dive into each card and card type spoiled so far!


Tech Talk 25 Special Edition: NPE

 As you know our Tech Talk podcast tends to go long, well this week went especially long with both the excitement of Siege: War for Cybertron, "Organized Play", and finally the "NPE" that is the Battle Deck driven Combo Decks in the Transformers TCG. 

Tech Talk 24: Speculation and Tourney Recap

This week we speculate on the "big announcement" on 4/8/19 before going over some local tournament result top 4s..Aerialbots, The Touch, Sentinels, and Constructicons taking the top spots!  We also go over our choice to play in the event: Predacons, and how we would change it up for next event!

Tech Talk 23: Combat Tribes and Predacons

This week Vince and Scott discuss the current state of the competitive metagame, the power and weaknesses of the various "Combat Tribes" (Melee, Ranged, Specialist) and then dive further into a discussion of a deck they intended to play over the weekend (which we did) but had little experience prior to this conversation in playing: Predacons.


Note: Sorry Brody was kinda loud in this one!

Tech Talk 22: RotC Tournament Talk

 

Scott and Vince discuss the results of a recent Case event at Top Deck Games in Collingswood, NJ, focusing on the top four decklists.  Today we are focusing on the aggressive non-combining Team Gradelock Sentinels  list as well as Scott's top 4 Aerialbots build.  We go over how it played, what made it well positioned in the event, their strengths and weaknesses, predators and prey, and changes we would make going forward!

Tech Talk 21: What's old is new again!

Join Vince and Scott as they go over the weekly news of the Transformers TCG and then talk about what updates to popular Wave One lists you should consider using Rise of the Combiners cards. It is just as important to update existing meta decks as it is to create new ones from scratch!
