• The Reserve Pool Sunday Edition: 5/4 - 5/10


    Wow! The big news of the week for us anyway was the launch of our second show, The Attack Zone! Look for our third show "The Prep Area," featuring deckbuilding discussions, to hit later this week. If you missed the first episode of The Attack Zone, check it out here.

    Before we get to more, we unfortunately have to bid farewell to Dylan. He's been a great part of the Dice Masters community but real life has given him things that he needs to shift his focus to beyond the game. We wish him well - and he's always welcome back!

    Strategy, Just For You

    We now have a place to share successful decklists - this includes tournament winners, runners-up, and for larger tournaments, the top eight. Any format is welcome - just follow the instructions.

    This week saw the continuation of Shadowmeld's "Reading the Rainbow" series, which studies the situations that you may find yourselves in whilst navigating a rainbow draft event. Give it a look!

    Also this week, Dave began a series that will look at various key strategic elements of Dice Masters. Whether a newcomer or a longtimer, these bits of strategy will help you hone your game. The first of the series deals with Resource Management in Dice Masters, why it matters, and how to do it.

    For stats geeks, Evan gave a look at stat and cost distributions in DC Dice Masters. Additionally, forum user @ELC1847 shared his own analysis of probabilities in the game. Interesting stuff!

    But The Fun Stuff Too!

    Zen Bins announced some changes, and we had a contest, and some people won it even! Huzzah! Speaking of things to win, we learned more about the prizes available at Worlds.

    You want thematic teams? We have some of those, though if you haven't seen Age of Ultron yet, there may be spoilers within. BE WARNED.

    And, of course, episode 49 of The Reserve Pool came out. Episode 50 - and the first birthday of the podcast - comes this week. We're not making it some big crazy round-number-birthday show - we'll acknowledge it, and continue to talk dice! That's why we're here!

      Dylan rules. Can't wait until he returns.

      The Prep Area will be fun, and the Attack Zone was great too. Another great week!
