Shiny Prizes! Halo Events Get Hooked Up!

Greetings all! SeerK here once again to talk Adeptcon.  I wanted to welcome aboard our latest sponsor.  Its official yet unofficial.  I want to send a special thanks to Ken and Rick from Studio 343 for their generous support of the Halo events at Adepticon.  If you have not seen the pictures on Facebook, we received a big box of goodies from the studio. How can you get some of this exclusive stuff?  Well you can sign up for the Halo Ground Command and Halo Fleet Battles tournaments!  Players will also have a chance at a studio exclusive piece of Artwork of Cortana.  Participants in both tournaments have a chance to win this beautiful piece of art.  A drawing will be held Sunday after the Halo Ground Command Tournament and one of the players will go home with it!

Road to Adepticon: Military Orders Tournament Prep

Greetings all.  SeerK here once again.  In this installment I am going to change gears a bit.  I have no new news for Adepticon, I will this coming week as the boys at Studio 343 just sent a big old box of Halo swag for the Halo Fleet Battles and Halo Ground Command tournaments.  In this post I am going to be talking Infinity.  Specifically about the PanOceania sectorial, Military Orders.  Despite the slew of Spartan events taking place at Adepticon, I have decided to actually play in something this year.  I don't play in events I am overseeing, so I turn to my other wallet draining game, Infinity.   I have three awesome Vanguards joining the team this year so I am playing in the only Infinity tournament I can do.  The Thursday 200 point spec- Ops Tournament.  I have been debating on which army to bring.  Bringing a Haqqislam force gives me an excuse to get an army painted.  You know in addition to all the terrain we have to paint and build.  I have decided to take a Military Orders force.  I don't play them often and with the new Order Sergeants box coming out.  I think its time to get them out on the table for a tournament. Lets take a look at Military Orders!

The Road to Adepticon: Primer Missions!

Greetings all!  SeerK here with your mission briefing.  The team has labored long, but we have a set of Primer missions for all our events at Adepticon.  The exception is The FSA Mega Battle also known as the Flashpoint Amber Narrative event.  Spartan Neil and I are working on that currently.  The Narrative requires much more work as it ties into the impending Flashpoint Amber Campaign.  In fact is is going to be a major pivotal event in the campaign.  The Amber system hangs in the balance.  The Schaumburg system under Kurak control as of last years Championships.  Will they be able to hold it as the Zenian League unleashes hell upon them. The Stage is set and the trap has been sprung. Be a part of history as we unveil something never before seen at Adepticon 2017.............but first lets look at those Primer Missions!

The Year in Review

Greetings all.  Its December 31st.  That means 2016 is coming to an end.  The crew and I are getting together tonight for a big party to usher out 2016.  It has been a year of extremes.  There have been epic highs and some pretty epic lows. Other than a decent paying job and meeting my future wife, it has been kind of an Empire strikes back kinda year.   The Spartan community is at a low point while the Infinity community is growing and has had some pretty awesome stuff happen this year. This has me in  a weird spot.  I am part of a community that has momentum and is growing at a rapid pace.  It is full of positivity and generally speaking a really good bunch of players.  It has a company that actively supports its community by going to shows and having a very tight and active tournament scene.  On the other hand the energy and momentum has kind of gone out of the Spartan community sails.  There is a lot of uncertainty and a lot of ill will from the player base right now.  There are signs of life and I hope this means the energy of 2 years ago makes a resurgence. Lets take a look back and I will have some resolutions as well as some stuff I would like to see in 2017.
