The Schaumburg Clash! Dystopian Wars at Adepticon!

Greetings all! SeerK here with our next Road to Adepticon post! In this installment I am going to be talking about one of our newest events. Dystopian Wars will be making its debut at Adepticon 2017. Dystopian Wars is Spartans second oldest game, right behind their first Game Uncharted Seas. For those of you that are not Familiar with Dystopian Wars It is a war game based in a super science Victorian era. Seven core Nations and a host of small nations and alliances make up the rich background of the Dystopian setting. Spartan recently initiated a kick starter for the next iteration of Dystopian wars. Lets dive into the tournament and the Kick starter!

The Road To Adepticon: Halo Joins the Fray!

Greetings all! SeerK here with another installment in our Road To Adepticon series! The crazy night of Registration is over and the Adepticon cart is open! The new system which started last year once again took the onslaught and Team WayGate was able to register without any mishaps. Spots are going fast for all the events. I know the Planetfall GT only had a couple left. So if you are thinking of attending or plan to sign up sooner rather than later to reserve your spot. We will be announcing sponsors over the next couple months. Spartan Games is on board bigger than ever and Evolution Games of Lansing Michigan returns as our other primary sponsor. More on them later though. This time we are talking Halo. Halo Fleet Battles and Halo Ground Command are making their debut at Adepticon this year with Tournaments for both games Happening. Lets chat about The Battle for Reach Halo Fleet Battles GT and the Battle for Reach Halo Ground Command GT!

The Road To Adepticon pt 1: The Flashpoint Narrative Event!

Greetings everyone! SeerK here to talk Adepticon. I wanted to start going into specifics for each of the events we are running this year. As I said a couple posts ago we have expanded the events to include almost all the games that Spartan makes. I am going to give some details about each event starting with the new ones joining the mix in our Road To Adepticon series. We have Firestorm Armada, Firestorm Planetfall, Halo Fleet Battles, Halo Ground Command and Dystopian Wars this year. Spartan Fans can look forward to an event every day of the convention except Wednesday. I am planning on doing an unofficial mixer and meet and greet Wednesday night, but I am still deciding what to do. I wanted to start our series with our new Firestorm Armada Event. In addition to the North American Championships we decided to add a fun event for those who want to play, but may not be ready to throw into a tournament. Friday night we are proud to bring you The Flashpoint Narrative Event!

Infinity: Tagline

Greetings all! SeerK here to talk Infinity in this installment. Specifically I am talking about the special I.T.S. Narrative event that recently went live. The Tagline Narrative follows the story of Toni Macayana and her death at the hands of an Umbra Samaritan Hacker named Nourkias. The local group plays Infinity in addition to Firestorm Armada so we decided to follow up our escalation league with the Tagline event. Now the Tagline Narrative is set up to be a tournament. It is not set up like the I.T.S. Leagues are so there is only a single code. You are required to do 3 rounds, but you may add 2 more. In this case we are doing all 5 rounds, but doing one round a week. I have the Event set up in the system at the finish date so I will have to manually enter the results, but doing it this way allows you to really enjoy the narrative and run this event as a campaign. Lets dive into the Paradiso conflict and The story around one of the most beloved characters in the game of Infinity.

GateCon FSA Megabattle Debrief!

Greetings all. It was a busy weekend for me. I had two events going on this past weekend. I played in an I.T.S. event and we had an FSA mega battle at Evolution Games on Sunday. It is this event I want to talk about. We decided to kick off the War Gaming season with a Massive fleet battle that tied into the Flashpoint Amber campaign. Granted we did take some liberties as we wanted our own FSA personas to be involved. This was a 5 on 5 game of Zenian League vs Kurak Alliance. It was 1000 points per player for a total of 10,000 points of ships on the table. We got a little bit of a late start due to the grilling of steak. You can’t battle on an empty stomach. The whole battle took about 6 hours or so. Let’s dive in and take a look at how the battle unfolded.
