UCON Games Convention Demo Sessions!

Greetings all! SeerK here.  With all the Adepticon hype starting I almost forgot that I was going to be doing some demo sessions at a local convention here in Michigan.  As some of you remember I have attended UCON Games Convention in the Ann Arbor Ypsilanti area for a few years now.  This Year I will be running Learn To Play sessions of Firestorm Armada, Halo Fleet Battle and Halo Ground Command.  I will also be running an Infinity Boot Camp  The events start on Saturday night and continue through Sunday. Lets take a look at the schedule!

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.
