Tech Talk 60: Rules CHanges, PPG Dallas, Energon Invitation

Note: this was recorded on 11/26, well before the banning of Multi-Mission Gear, so references to the Daring Escape combo are "outdated". If you want to skip the PPG Dallas coverage and get right to our thoughts on the upcoming Energon Invitational, feel free :-)

We go over the OP Rules changes (NOT the MMG banning), the results from the PPG Dallas, and then have a discussion around the upcoming Energon Invitational: the Marathon day, how to avoid long lines, what to prepare for mentally, etc.
