: I still think Ian would appreciate cricket for it's backward short leg and silly point
TemporallyAwry: Handball has the circular court though right?
mtvcdm: Borden ball is just another name for handball.

RockPusher: A metal tube with voles
SquareDotCube: Banned from a normal life
Juliamon: I was only allowed to try out for sports that my mom was willing to go to games for. So, soccer because it was past prime mosquito season, and basketball because it was indoors.
Rourke9: oh sorry, I understood, I was just being silly!
Rourke9: i should have made that more clear
TheDailyMapleSyrup: I didn't want to play sports in school because it would cut into my video game time
MAPBoardgames: Sounds like a smart lady @Juliamon
mtvcdm: I was on a golf driving range once. The guy at the tee box next to me looked at how I was swinging.... and then *picked up his stuff and moved to a tee behind me.*
mtvcdm: I'm not good.
SaxPython: I went Varsity... at Marching Band
TemporallyAwry: I ended up in the film and news org at my school - because I got "stolen" to be their I.T. person.
mtvcdm: Once at a driving range I managed to hit the ball *backwards.* I still don't know how I did that.
: whoa my monitor is moving!
MAPBoardgames: I have to say I am not a fan of the 'one-fail restart' gameplay mechanic.
Juliamon: MAPBoardgames It's optional
DrLigmaPhD: Unfortunately I was way late into college and about to move before realizing there was a HEMA club

Simonark: Congratulations on a game that's better than last week's!
FacelessManAboutTown: Wheeler's next concussion will immediately precede his next playing of Wizard 101
: @rosesmcgee oh no
FarleyF: your in for a treat with this one
Tz_BG: Play it again actual Thanksgiving?
rosesmcgee: Nobody tell my wife. Please...
matthaus_c: one wizard 101 stream for every $5 james gives you
Simonark: No, Adam did that. Wizard 101 just ruined your evening last week.
thraximore: Are we the baddies?
TheThirdTail: Everyone in this game is the baddies. Kind of.
TheMerricat: For Usaians who aren't in the know tomorrow is Victoria Day in Canada.
niccus: did Wizard 101 not also start with "Welcome to Hell!"
TemporallyAwry: !findquote mods
LRRbot: Quote #7205: "When a mod takes to allcaps, you know something is going down." —Ian [2020-09-19]
: Comeon, baby, carry my fire!
Rourke9: yea this is a good 2-3 week game
Simonark: Juliamon's a sound judge, this game really is very good
thraximore: I read that as Usain Bolts
niccus: not to be confused with "you saiyans"
midnightcurryjazz: Ben 101!
Earthenone: i assumed it was an -ussy joke
Sibwow: wheeler i have something to tell you
Sibwow: youre asian
midnightcurryjazz: I missed this lush piano ost
: Lol sorry Wheeler.
Juliamon: Someone in chat mentioned it and I abused my powers to steal credit
thraximore: Please Wheeler, "Monstrussy Train" was right there
Simonark: Richard Dawson?
midnightcurryjazz: This game is fun for a time.
midnightcurryjazz: Kinda easy to break
: ahh the streamer special @Juliamon
thavleifrim: do you have the DL
FarleyF: it is yes
thavleifrim: THE dlc*?
midnightcurryjazz: It is!
Simonark: It is a roguelike.
thraximore: what are they doing in hell??
midnightcurryjazz: They have keywords on screen too
Loonatic93: @thraximore They're trying to stop the train.
Earthenone: i hope that fire dosent get us content id'd
dragonwarrior000: You can hover over enemies to see if they have effects before starting the level
DrLigmaPhD: I've arrived! I hear we're running trains on monsters?
midnightcurryjazz: Or a deep narrator voice
thraximore: @Loonatic93 So I gathered, but where and how did they get in in the first place?
YeetTheRich_: !findquote popcorn
LRRbot: Quote #5800: "Nothing says rub your loins like hot buttery popcorn!" —Kathleen [2019-02-08]
midnightcurryjazz: Get em off!
Loonatic93: @Loonatic93 So that the game can happen.
thavleifrim: rude, I bet they didn't even pay for a ticket
YeetTheRich_: holy shit this IS an actual card game
DrLigmaPhD: Does this train have hot chocolate?
midnightcurryjazz: Mouse over it, it all has tooltips
midnightcurryjazz: You always start with your chamption
SaxPython: why does this look like a W+P mobile game?
thraximore: good question
LRRbot: Please ONLY offer advice when the streamer uses the phrase "Hey, chat...". Let them try to learn the game on their own, even if it means they miss a thing or two.
SkylerRingtail: @SaxPython Yeah, the graphics turned me off initially too. But a friend suggested it and it turned out to be pretty good
KeytarCat: @SaxPython Because the difference between an indie game and a bad indie game is that one is bad
SaxPython: lol well said
midnightcurryjazz: Sorry, I meant the +3 next to your embers. Its how many ember you will get next turn.

SpleenLord: Imps are a trap
trebuchetboy: You can overfill a floor with ascend if that helpss
Loonatic93: @SpleenLord Depends on your build. They're amazing with the Melting.
midnightcurryjazz: imps are dope
DrLigmaPhD: Wheeler saw "welder" and got excited
FarleyF: imps are classically support units
SkylerRingtail: Good ol' chat, with disagreeing advice haha
LRRbot: Kill him, he drops a sweet Katana.
Loonatic93: @SkylerRingtail When you have over 200 folks here, you are going to have differences of opinions and strategies.
midnightcurryjazz: You can turn on combat preview as well
midnightcurryjazz: If you wish for that
midnightcurryjazz: Shows the damage and stuff that will be done.
Fancy_frenchman: Hey Ben, just played my first CanLander event, thanks for getting me into the format. Went 3-0 on Gruul Monsters
thavleifrim: chat is always right, but equally chat is always wrong.
dragonwarrior000: Put endless on the imp please
DrLigmaPhD: I cannot stress how much I instinctively despise this steampunk cat
tehfewl: I would see what the banner gives first
Simonark: Well, with a game like this, we won't agree since those of us who've played this has wildly different opinions about what we've enjoyed and what cards we found we liked best. It's a sign of a great game we can't agree on anything beyond liking the game
Loonatic93: Play however you want to play and please ignore us.
trebuchetboy: Wheeler nooo
YeetTheRich_: oh fuck this cat (?, raccoon?) is very high on the shopkeeper tier list
: And maybe upgrade for some HP on your 11/1
niccus: it's the first run, now's the time to lick every outlet
LRRbot: Please ONLY offer advice when the streamer uses the phrase "Hey, chat...". Let them try to learn the game on their own, even if it means they miss a thing or two.
ghyllnox: Has Wheeler played Loop Hero on ITYC?
grebnief: @TemporallyAwry yargle friend or bust
Simonark: We won't even pick a best faction to play coherently.
TheThirdTail: Context is critical in these games as well, so a "bad" card can actually be totally fine sometimes
DrLigmaPhD: I swear to never offer advice and only D-tier jokes
: Can't offer advice if you have no clue what's going on
thraximore: multistrike seems bad
YeetTheRich_: oh no they are on the double tower shield build
Geldaran: @thraximore multistrike is bad when spikes are in play, but excellent when you start stacking attack buffs.
thraximore: go welder!
HorusFive: Yeah, get in there little guy
midnightcurryjazz: You can mousewheel to skip between train levels
tehfewl: any glimmer enjoyers
midnightcurryjazz: hell yeah
Rourke9: yes always
: No "both" options?
thraximore: he didn't get tenure
Rourke9: mr xavier?
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, this game has music
tehfewl: the bomb wasn't going to do anything
Loonatic93: Let him figure that out on his own.
tehfewl: sorry, i got a bit over excited
LRRbot: Negotiate with the badger.
DekiSystem: I enter stream to cat, I very much approve
theamc2000: Where is wizard
Loonatic93: You may still survive.
tehfewl: first boss is tough
: was bad.
shurtal: gotta spend money to make money
trebuchetboy: Not too bad. Id use stewards as meatshields tho
bluddragon1: oh fuck I love monster train, tho this is a game of how hard you can scale
YeetTheRich_: paul play the dark souls moan
a_pidgeon: Moan% is a viable speedrun category in every game
shurtal: *insert Diablo 2 succubae here*
Loonatic93: It absolutely does.
Creature_Comforts: Yes, it triggers on armor
dragonwarrior000: Hit period
bluddragon1: you can hit it yourself too
Simonark: So I'm going to say, the bosses in this game are.. never pushovers? Even once you're a lot more experienced and have a lot more unlocked, sometimes your deck just doesn't work. Your build may just be a bad match up against a boss and you just don't see it until it's too late.
theprophetofcthulu: You generally use stewards and other higher health units as meat shields
bluddragon1: is this with or without the dlc?
fran0258 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 16 months!
: Thanks for subscribing, fran0258! (Today's storm count: 12)
tehfewl: DLC adds so much that you really need a firm grasp on the game before getting it
TheThirdTail: Oh, Resto Deto is fun
shurtal: new absolute unit
Simonark: The DLC is a week 2 or 3 thing, I'd say, it introduces really advanced playstyles, and mechanics that don't even mean much until you've unlocked all the factions.
theprophetofcthulu: a big tank
Tz_BG: Your playthrough prompted me to play this. Picked Awoken Hollow. Works great with the healing bomb
niconorsk: Resto deto + awoken hollow is a nice combo
trebuchetboy: Big boi
tehfewl: L A R G E
trebuchetboy: Largestone is funny
Loonatic93: Takes up one more spot.
Simonark: Absolute units are a pretty solid plan in a lot of this game.
Alephred: Are the DLCs a good addition? I've heard mixed things about the way they change gameplay.
Loonatic93: I like it!
TheThirdTail: The Boneshaker is the name of the train iirc
dragonwarrior000: @alephred they don't change much for the existing content but it does add new bosses and a new clan option
Haroldholmes25: boneshaker's ready
shurtal: very *schlorpy* sound
Simonark: You aren't even at the serious demon noises or.. weirder factions.
Mr_Horrible: tfw da guy big
: Gamba time
bluddragon1: I will say that the dlc has changed how I look at all cards, and I appreciate that
Mr_Horrible: they ATE your 5-spot???
niccus: it changes every time, but you can see it ahead of time
Mechsican: almost a flying kill. nice.
Simonark: There might even be a whole aristocrats/sac outlet faction somewhere.
shurtal: eurghhh, my cabbages
Mr_Horrible: More like Dead-alus amirite
Sorator13: how imp-ertinent
Mechsican: quick is broken as af but thorns on the chunkers is also huge.
Creature_Comforts: I love animuses
Loonatic93: Animus of Will is kinda an amazing build around.
Sorator13: Right seems better?
Sorator13: mostly because multistrike
Loonatic93: These folks are obnoxious.
Mechsican: If you get brawler III he gets multistrike 5x. very fun build but needs lots of support.
KeytarCat: Wow, heaven is effed up
Sorator13: @KeytarCat and also a train, apparently??
KeytarCat: I just found the UI element for Capacity, neat!
VinylMinty: we're not in heaven
VinylMinty: We're in hell, travelling the 9 circles of hell to relight the fire
Sorator13: definitely misread that one as "demon friend"
VinylMinty: Thats why we have the pyre.
Sorator13: @VinylMinty Oh, so he *was* a demon friend after all?
niconorsk: Can you Torch to trigger revenge?
midnightcurryjazz: so many lorge plants
dragonwarrior000: @niconorsk yes
midnightcurryjazz: so angry
Sorator13: rage 20, so anger
midnightcurryjazz: I love that its just a brawl until its over
Loonatic93: To the same target.
KeytarCat: Is it possible to generate an equilibrium state where the boss rush never ends?
dragonwarrior000: @keytarcat no
midnightcurryjazz: this is for sure a purge a card game
Loonatic93: Removing the card... Removes the card?
tehfewl: hate this boss
Sorator13: I think at the start of the battle only, wasn't it?
midnightcurryjazz: These bird boys
: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
Mechsican: that artifact is a hard counter to one of the final bosses. love it.
teejayrivers: Ninja bird
Sorator13: That is confusing templating
teejayrivers: A line between the text and the stats could make that a lot clearer
Mr_Horrible: treasure cupid: "I'm here! Oh no!"
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, its great for just killing the gold imps and tiny stuff
Sorator13: oh, that *is* per turn, wow
Sorator13: Yeah, sweep seems excellent
: Stealth 8
niccus: yeah, this was the one case where you don't want to pop the guy in the back
theprophetofcthulu: yep can confirm stealth sucks ass
Sorator13: death by healing!
midnightcurryjazz: They had the X even before that spell even!
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, you can sac imp
Andymonium: imp tribal
Loonatic93: Very much an imp archtype.l
niccus: yeah, but it's not amazing without the DLC
SpoonfullOfSugar: there's an imp leader
trebuchetboy: There is a 10 mana guy that gets cheaper based on imps
Loonatic93: @SpoonfullOfSugar The Scorpio Goddess herself!
midnightcurryjazz: not diesel
: Not Diesel
Sorator13: Nutty Diesel?
: Choo-choo Charles
Simonark: Yes, Sweep and Multistrike IS really good
Creature_Comforts: It sure does!
Mechsican: sure does
chumpXL: Sure does
Loonatic93: But you don't have room for it.
dragonwarrior000: If you get an upgrade from the ice cave, you can put it on a unit that already has its upgrade slot filled.
midnightcurryjazz: They have two slots on the side
midnightcurryjazz: of the card
nervousdavid: only 2
Mechsican: there is an arifact you can find that gives units a 3rd slot.
Kaktus021: Rarely you can get a third slot, if I recall
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, some can have three
teejayrivers: Fel's got that Zettai ryoiki going on
Loonatic93: Don't love your odds on this boss. But you will learn alot here.
midnightcurryjazz: Listen to this violin just shred through its strings
midnightcurryjazz: like a log
teejayrivers: Using train stewards as meat shields is an entire valid strategy
shurtal: yea. i remember
: Magic Schoolbus is timeless, how dare
midnightcurryjazz: I cant remember an individual episode even though I had a lunchbox of magic school bus
DekiSystem: I just remember the one episode where arnold gets frozen solid
Sorator13: hey, that one went up instead of down!
midnightcurryjazz: besides the stomach one cause that was gross
midnightcurryjazz: Achievement get maybe?
midnightcurryjazz: That is one.
TheMerricat: and it's only one ember!
Mechsican: restore the WHOLE FLOOR to full health
shurtal: beware, your boys can be come uncomfortabley large
Mechsican: not just one dude.
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, you are set up to play the board, some builds want card draw and looping
midnightcurryjazz: there it is
Andymonium: that's so RUDE
trebuchetboy: Collection of tails Sadge
teejayrivers: AXE BIRD
: Hey, look, there's all that gold you needed
thraximore: @Creature_Comforts He did miss it though, right
Creature_Comforts: I was referring to the challenge

ExarSnow: I think it said all friendly on one floor
wandering_t: spells only affect one floor
niconorsk: All friendly units on that floor
Creature_Comforts: It works on one floor
shurtal: on floor
teejayrivers: on one floor
Loonatic93: All friendly units on that floor.
miles_ivy: its probably all on that row
Sorator13: All on one floor
Mechsican: only that floor. correct,.
karmic_guide: Henlo! how goes the monstrous train ride
KeytarCat: Capacity is the pips in the upper left of the floor when you're playing your turn, and the top of creature cards
teejayrivers: Oh right this thing has trample
forcedreject: Wait until you unlock the aristocrats clan or the storm clan
notsoc00l_guy: the fact that this game just base gives you money for skipping is so funny compared to most other deckbuilders
trebuchetboy: You can overfill a floor w/ ascend/descend btw
Mechsican: that card allows you to over stack floors. if you fill a floor and decend a unit you can go over the unit cap.
midnightcurryjazz: You can check the shops before you buy stuff
midnightcurryjazz: If you wanted to see the trinkets
Mechsican: free stings are sick.
forcedreject: The sting's don't have purge so they will stay in your deck after
teejayrivers: Final boss time
Seth_Erickson: The End is Here
Mechsican: this is the hardest of the Seraph's
Mechsican: such a buzz kill on some runs.
trebuchetboy: uh oh
niccus: pre-ascension seraph has very low health, at least
karmic_guide: gah, your making me want to get back into this game
VinylMinty: Cant wait for wheeler to start making challenges for chat
VinylMinty: That was one of the fun things i remember for this game
VinylMinty: you can share custom challenges
forcedreject: *cough souls games*
notsoc00l_guy: everytime wheeler plays a deckbudeck builderiler i haven't played in a bit, I also feel the draw to go back
miles_ivy: love to rebel against heaven
shurtal: love that Darksiders aesthetic
VinylMinty: Oh wheeler you can speed up animations at top right
Juliamon: I apologize for laughing over "deckbudeck builderiler"
forcedreject: That was very ned flanders sounding
Seth_Erickson: Card games fun who could have guessed
karmic_guide: Sadly, lookin' unlikely for a MT 2. That said, the dlc was excellent, so can't really complain.
niccus: their next game is almost out, after all
teejayrivers: Leader gets the final blow
Simonark: I believed in you. We can see you and have proof you are real, so it was easy.
: did it in one?
: What a gamer
forcedreject: Covenant = Ascenstion/NG+
teejayrivers: Hell Yeah!
miles_ivy: oh we got panharmonicon
forcedreject: Aristocrats unlocked
: Imp Deck
Loonatic93: @forcedreject Aristocrats isn't truly unlocked until he get access to the Melting faction.
thraximore: oh sick
forcedreject: @forcedreject I suppose for now just Impristocrats
niccus: you've got one more week to beat that record
Simonark: Is Serge not on your friends list? He's definitely played this game on stream...
KeytarCat: That scoreboard was ASS
teejayrivers: I need to replay this game. It's so fun
KeytarCat: (Because Apsalar, Swamp, Seabats)
Mechsican: I can't wait to see wheeler play melting remnant.
Loonatic93: I love how the Red and Green factions are very much like Red and Green in Magic.
Loonatic93: Given base color pie theory.
karmic_guide: I'd kinda burned myself out on monster train, but it's been like a year, so now may be a good time to get back in
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, there was some easy super op stuff when it was first out
Bruceski: After Slay the Spire it was frustrating to see so many clones, but this is one of the ones that took the same base idea and really built it in a different way. It's great.
midnightcurryjazz: I burned out on it
karmic_guide: I'd made the poor decision to complete the journal... wouldn't really recommend
Simonark: I'm trying to decide how.. analogous to the colour pie the other factions are.. I don't think ANYONE is really white.
Juliamon: well, white is the enemies
KeytarCat: I'm playing one on mobile that's about the mana composition rather than the card draw
niccus: i'd call Awoken closest to HS Priest than mtg green/white
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, its only a small section of the magic identify pie, like a lot of digital card games.
Mechsican: @Simonark the umbra can be "white" lots of "soldiers" willing to "die"
Simonark: Stygian Guard are very blue.
theprophetofcthulu: morsel lads are w/b sacrifice
karmic_guide: henlo! did ya wash yur hands

Laserbeaks_Fury: so is this like heat in Hades
ShardsSystem: Oh, camera frame is off-center...
niccus: just conventional ascension like in StS
midnightcurryjazz: yeah, we can see the white longboxes now
ShardsSystem: @midnightcurryjazz As in there's a bit of camera outside the frame to the right.
AdamYMHMI: We have special mutators that let us see things
: In my defense, it's the ASD.
chumpXL: It is I, twitch chat
: @AdamYMHMI i thought eyes came standard these days
AdamYMHMI: @KeytarCat We're old models
notsoc00l_guy: I gotta say, I think one of my favorite parts of this game is that the train is named the boneshaker
shurtal: i'd rather have Grizzlebee's
TheMerricat: I still don't understand what holdover does
karmic_guide: @TheMerricat It goes on top of your deck after playing
TheMerricat: ah! thank you!
niccus: costs a draw and everything, but since the number of draws is essentially finite, it can be really valuable
chumpXL: Holdover, it's pretty good
dragonwarrior000: Holdover RestoDestro is good with this champion
: i downloaded and have been playing along with wheeler, i made it to the 8th circle of hell, my run ended for a good reason, aparently you can have too much card draw
chumpXL: I hope you unlock Umbra next, they're my favorite faction
niccus: it's got sweep, sorry
niccus: it's rough for a tank champion, but at least it shouldn't kill you
mazingolfer: no my apes!
karmic_guide: All I want are little fade shenanigans
mazingolfer: they took my imps and you’re laughing?
miles_ivy: i'm an imp stan in this game
karmic_guide: @miles_ivy You've got Imp-eccable taste
notsoc00l_guy: nah, being greedy never goes wrong
raaabr: Heya wheeler
raaabr: I quite love this game, but Daedalus is such a filter
raaabr: From what I recall
: so the problem with Restoration Detionation that I'm seeing is... you have to let them hit you before you can bomb them
raaabr: We might be in trouble
karmic_guide: I feel the real trouble with come with seraph
raaabr: We'll survive, but the core will take a beating
raaabr: So yeah, Daedalus is a real pisser
DreamyPants: oh shoot, I love this game and didn't realize it was being played! how's wheeler been liking it?
raaabr: I should probably reinstall monster train, it's been a bit
TheMerricat: @DreamyPants This is second run, first run was flawless victory.
Loonatic93: Third run. First didn't go so well.
karmic_guide: thems some big bois
TheMerricat: Oh! I missed first run then
Juliamon: First run was a learning-how-the-game-works run
shurtal: is the boss just Tizoc from KoF?
raaabr: Spikes 30 vs a low attack boss is good
midnightcurryjazz: but less buff
raaabr: Turns out
Simonark: I'm curious what the opinion is of how being shown the results of a fight before it happens and the impact of what you play, as a gameplay mechanic.
thraximore: oh is Boneshaker the train
miles_ivy: oh same man
miles_ivy: love some dubious liquid
TheAwkes: Sorting through the ol' piles of cards all day and just found 3x Dandan from Chronicles? Pretty cool.
Sorator13: @TheAwkes you know what that means...
miles_ivy: last party I was at someone brought out a pitcher filled with neon blue liquid & i poured a shot of tequila into it and downed it
miles_ivy: big dubious liquid fan
Chartle: but.. spikes
DreamyPants: having the mental fortitude to turn the challenge toggle off already makes wheeler better at this game than me
niccus: is challenge not on?
niccus: oh you meant the per-encounter challenges. yeah no there will be greed
DreamyPants: yeah I meant the 1 fight challenge, not covenant
TheMerricat: Discretion is the better part of valor. I believe the challenge for this one gave the enemy multistrike
trebuchetboy: Pog Stygian Guard
niccus: it's not *too* bad with our champion, since the dps enemies die first hit to spikes

VinylMinty: @LoadingReadyRun If you wanna speed the fighting animations up - Top right there's a Play button
Juliamon: He knows and doesn't want to
niccus: that said we're still not built to actually dominate the end fights
VinylMinty: Ah ok Juliamon
midnightcurryjazz: yeah, its only the third run
midnightcurryjazz: he isnt sick of it yet
midnightcurryjazz: More the speed once you are in it, less waiting around
midnightcurryjazz: the sounds are great.
: FISH CLUB
miles_ivy: i didnt notice the plant guys little head at the bottom of the vase
raaabr: I have no idea how I'd rank the different factions
DreamyPants: I think wheeler will like stygian guard
raaabr: Maybe the wax people are lowest....?
midnightcurryjazz: the fish people are cool
Loonatic93: It's one of those things that annoys me about Let's Plays. Folks wanting to up the speed as high as possible. Almost like they want to get through a game as fast as possible.
raaabr: Feesh people are great fun
karmic_guide: @raaabr I believe the Melting Remnant are the final clan unlock
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah. I think the speed up thing was being said as more of an informative thing.
: Every time you tell a LRRsperson how to speed up their game, Beej starts another grind session of Betrayal at Krondor.
thavleifrim: for me its not that i want to get through the game faster its that i want to spend more time engaging with the decision making and less time waiting
Sorator13: Furrystone? Don't mind if I do...
notsoc00l_guy: I love the candles, not only because I like playing them, but I love the aesthetic of them
TheThirdTail: I just like to go fast. I find it satisfying to see how quickly I can make good decisions
DreamyPants: this boss is a reader
midnightcurryjazz: Is this guy new?
midnightcurryjazz: the boss, not wheeler
karmic_guide: @midnightcurryjazz nah
midnightcurryjazz: I dont remember him at all
Sorator13: Oh that's... weird
Loonatic93: Also... Upping the game speed can actually make a game unwatchable for me. So disorenting.
midnightcurryjazz: like at all at all
niccus: the gentle version of that one seraph mode
raaabr: They added new bosses with the DLC iirc
notsoc00l_guy: i think this guy is from the first dlc wave
midnightcurryjazz: oh ok
DreamyPants: @midnightcurryjazz He wasn't in the earliest versions of the game. He also doesn't show up on 1st runs ever
thraximore: Wheeler's pretty new, his wiki page hasn't even been updated yet
midnightcurryjazz: his ost is neat
raaabr: Vote to call him Darchus
karmic_guide: Wheeler has a wiki?
raaabr: I do love the music
midnightcurryjazz: This person who wrote this song has heard a lot of endwalker music. This shares a lot of things with some of thos etracks
raaabr: This game came out before endwalker
raaabr: I'm pretty sure
Valyote: it did
Sorator13: definitely did, yes
raaabr: The torch guards are not cutting it anymore, yeah
karmic_guide: What's the function of the purple shard again?
LightningElektron: 1.5k health and dealing about 30 damage a turn. That's rough, buddy
raaabr: I find the green faction tends to have good front guys, but they lack good back-end fighters until you rank up with them enough
raaabr: Inverse for the red faction
notsoc00l_guy: yeah, plants have a very easy time ending up with a lot of health and zero damage
karmic_guide: Yea, two of the bosses you've rolled are not kind to the champion path you've chosen
notsoc00l_guy: don't worry, the pyre only needs to tank 40 hits
LightningElektron: Hell Yeah!
raaabr: I will say, the unique weirdness of each of the factions is Super cool
raaabr: Lore wise
notsoc00l_guy: 15 imps played sounds like a victory to me
raaabr: The'yre a very cool interpretation of Hell
niccus: hey, third faction open
raaabr: You'll really like Stygian clan
teejayrivers: Cuttlebeard my beloved
Sorator13: alright, I'll admit, this is a more entertaining card game than wizard101
raaabr: Split anvil really rewards big spells
karmic_guide: If you've got frostbite it's great
SkylerRingtail: Cuttlebeard is a build-around I think
Loonatic93: Cuttlebeard is a fave of mine.
DreamyPants: frostbite = poison mechanically if that helps
niccus: they're both buildarounds
teejayrivers: I love it but then again I force frostbite every time I play Stygian
notsoc00l_guy: I love this games version of hell, I'm a big fan of how there's like different regions with very different vibe
teejayrivers: And sometimes I just lose because of it
notsoc00l_guy: if you're not forcing frost bite, are you really living?
karmic_guide: @notsoc00l_guy I get my life by forcing spikes fade
: The guy in the back looks like he's just shrugging while his boss fights
TheMerricat: How awkward watching your boss just die bashing themselves into what's essentially a spiked door....
niccus: that's just praxis
Sorator13: @TheMerricat Adam can relate
karmic_guide: Gotto go, good luck defeating the forces of heaven
raaabr: I think that Stygian guard have one of the best "starter" cards in the game with their 1 mana deal 6
raaabr: It's situational but it scales okay into mid game

raaabr: I just had a delicious italian birthday dinner
lackingsanity: i played a lot of sf6
raaabr: So my weekend was pretty sweet
Cptasparagus: as long and painful as that spikes fight
Chartle: wait, what's an italian birthday
raaabr: Sorry, a birthday dinner. At an italian place
TheMerricat: Awesome, spent some rare non-conflict time with my parents and brother celebrating mothers day late...
raaabr: I got to have a white ragu with Veal and Pork
Pywodwagon: I paid for Matt Wiggins to eat an entire large pizza like a taco, so pretty good
shurtal: @Pywodwagon doin' gods work pywo
thraximore: eyyy you paid wiggins
thraximore: good on you
niccus: just like a taco shell? gotta dare him to have taco fillings next time
thraximore: it's the first rule, wheeler: Thou must Commit to the Bit
Pywodwagon: He *demolished* that pizza and then said he was still kinda hungry
Mattmitchell45: @Pywodwagon Was that tonight's stream or yesterday? (curious minds want to know) @Pywodwagon
niccus: guess it wasn't that large of a pizza
Pywodwagon: Last nights
Pywodwagon: It’s was 14”!
ChampBlankman: This is my favorite piece of music in this game.
FarleyF: i mean if it was a lebanese pizza then it would be a lot better - however yipes thats a thicc pizza boy
midnightcurryjazz: Oh I forgot about permafrost
: Raise your hands in the air Wave 'em like you just don't care
notsoc00l_guy: no attack gives me big hold priority to do nothing vibes
midnightcurryjazz: pitched goat sound
FarleyF: Giving us a THICC squid
teejayrivers: She tall

Sorator13: what does Frostbite do?
Loonatic93: Frostbite is like poison in StS.
Sorator13: @FarleyF Squiddy D?
Loonatic93: She's a Squid now... She's a Lady now.
midnightcurryjazz: rip 1 hp
midnightcurryjazz: lol spikes
midnightcurryjazz: this bird just thrashing itself to death on your window
FarleyF: spikes are where you seperate the 20 damage from the 4 x 5 damage and laugh
midnightcurryjazz: It can clear out packs
teejayrivers: Multiattack numbers always trips me up in this game because it's how many *extra* attacks they get. So multiattack X means they attack X+1 times
teejayrivers: like, when upgrading the red leader and he has "multiattack 2" I start to think "oh, he attacks twice"
notsoc00l_guy: marvel's midnight suns gets me the other way, where chain 1 means it it hits one target
trebuchetboy: thats mean game. Giving +20 to sting now
Serioavion: Multistrike is just so good
midnightcurryjazz: Is nice seeing wheeler treat the stewards nicely
Loonatic93: There's an artifact that you can get that turns your Train Guardians into absolute beasts.
Loonatic93: Err... Train Stewards/
teejayrivers: Don't talk to me or my spiky, immortal son again
Sorator13: did someone say Immortal Sun?

Sorator13: Oh, I didn't realize sweep would also hit the boss if it's on that level, nice
Sorator13: makes sense
LightningElektron: this going to be close
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, trouble town
LightningElektron: so close
midnightcurryjazz: Yeah, you need some unlocks still
LightningElektron: there are some good multistrike units in the Awoken
Juliamon: Well, next week we can explore the Stygians some more
Sorator13: ty for stream; have a good night!

Rourke9: Thanks for stream!
Juliamon: Sure is
Juliamon: I literally cannot watch it, it makes me so uncomfortable
DeM0nFiRe: I actually like it lol. Like I recognize it's not good but still watch it in winter sometimes
benjamin_wheeler: I remember seeing it in Imax?
benjamin_wheeler: like at our local museum, but mostly because they had like bottomless hot chocolate?
benjamin_wheeler: and it was around christmas time
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah it clearly has some scenes that were done specifically for it to be seen in like imax
