#27: Playing HYPE and how to beat it

May 17, 2017

Feel the love CRITheads, because you can't keep a good CRIT down we're back to dish more out. This is episode number twenty-seven, Playing HYPE and how to beat it. For this episode James, John and Chris kick off the show with your usual dose of What the CRIT action. John reveals his secret new faction for the Woton campaign, Chris gives a rundown of his most recent tournament antics, and James discusses the fun and games he's had with PanOceania.

After What the CRIT it's time for our epic roundtable discussion in CRIT Theory. After reading out a listener email and offering our pearls of wisdom, we debate which are the most hyped units for each Infinity faction; how to make the best use of them and crucially how to beat them. Can you guess which units make it in, and do you agree with our choices? We round the feature off by discussing Tohaa's dirty reputation and decide just how broken they are.

Then it's time to cast an eye over the ALIVE anti-establishment, group break it down and pull apart the merits and failings of this unusual triumvirate. Rounding things off with an army list discussion; where we try to get the most out of them for 300pts play.

#25: I will edit in a title…

March 30, 2017

The boys are back and the beers are in. It’s the Totally CRIT Crew with another episode of their fantastical brand of podcasting entertainment. This is episode #25 I will edit in a title… For this episode Rob, John and James settle in for discussion of all things CRIT. Starting with a breakdown of What the CRIT they’ve been up to hobby wise, with musings on painting, terrain building and the virtue of entering buildings.

Then it’s on to Games and CRIT and time for the boys to break it down for Totally CRIT Open 9. Their trials, their tribulations, their victories and their defeats. Discussing among other things the merits of player-TOs, speed of play, the value of order spam, and just why is it so good? We cover meta, game mechanics, and the causes of all this grief. We even remember to talk about the games we played.

Finally, we round things off with Community CRIT where we discuss the qualifiers for this year’s UK Infinity Masters. And hit wild tangents like which American Football teams we like. Then it’s time for a Totally CRIT competition…

#24: Who’s that guy?

March 1, 2017

Are you ready? Are you ready for CRIT? Are you hanging on the edge of your seat? Out of the doorway the CRITs rip, to the sound of the beat! 

Hey we’re back in the saddle again with Totally CRIT episode 24 - Who's that Guy? This time Rob, John and Chris sally forth raiding the airwaves with their meandering, baffling, wild and often incendiary discussion. They start the show gently with a friendly chat about what they’ve been up to in What the CRIT. Where they cover all the hobby fun they’ve had over the last few weeks.

However all bets are off when the boys dare to discuss the etiquette of gaming in Community CRIT, friends soon become foes, reason gives way to obstinance, the sky falls and hell opens, but don’t worry folks… they kiss and make up! What was causing all this? Well it was listener email. Damn their ears!
