  3. https://alteregosmarvelchampions.podbean.com/e/experimental-research-01-all-gas-no-brakes/ Welcome back to the reboot of Honorary Deck, now known as Experimental Research. In this first week we take a look at the idea of a 'rush' deck for some of the scenarios where villains lack catch up tools or appropriate stall tactics to prevent the heroes from a rapid victory. As always you can follow along with the deck list here: https://marvelcdb.com/decklist/view/3929/er-01-all-gas-no-brakes-1.0 If you have comments or feedback on this new series feel free to send us an email at alteregosmcpodcast@gmail.com.

  6. https://alteregosmarvelchampions.podbean.com/e/season-3-announcement-1599621583/ In this special episode of the podcast we take the time to talk about the future of the podcast and what Season 3 will look like. A very special thanks to every listener for supporting the show so far! See you all next week for Season 3.
  7. I thought SpiderMana you could see the original discussion. To clarify on the global discord FFG head of marketing Evan Johnson is kind enough to liase with community leaders in informing the player base about shifts in scheduling or arranging for content creator spoilers and so on. As a now admin of the discord I try to collate that information and then post it out publicly as announcements for everyone. This is what I wrote regarding the recent scheduling changes. Hope it helps! "An update regarding Marvel Champions for products from October onwards direct from FFG Marketing. September Stream Schedule. Wasp announcement article prior to Quicksilver stream announcement. "we weren't able to make the schedule work out to have a corresponding livestream, unfortunately." October 2020 The Once and Future Kang. Ant-Man is no longer releasing alongside this scenario pack. November onwards Release Order will be the same commencing with Ant-Man. They are uncertain at this time whether releases are going back to one pack per month or another potential double up may occur. FFG where possible will let us know more as information becomes available. Statement: "Sorry for the change-up!" Additional information. As this is the global discord it is extremely fortunate FFG is willing to liaison with us to share this information. I hope you appreciate this update and we'll keep everyone posted as more information comes in."
  8. Thanks HirumaShigure, It's funny you mention the hour long drives as for a lot of other FFG card games that was my experience too. Wanting to listen to content as I travel to and from work. I'm hoping the cast is providing content worth listening to and with Season 3 I want to double down on what is really working for the cast! The Side Scheme are running a really interesting league which was fun to talk about!
  9. They are taking a break until September 14th where they will start streaming a campaign of The Rise of Red Skull expansion!
  10. Thanks for the feedback and kind words. Shorter episodes is definitely always something I keep in my head. We are restructuring how we approach hero or scenario reviews to fit in line with that. I still hope to maintain a depth and quality of content that feels in line with our vision for the podcast. The interview approach is certainly something we want to expand on and I think the podcast works best where that dynamic is present. A discussion about top down vs bottom up design is definitely something I'll keep in mind for a future topic! Thanks for the suggestion. reviews are all topics I love.
  11. September Update and Season 3 of the Podcast Hello everyone, It's funny how fast time flies. The Rise of Red Skull has just been released and I hope you all got your copies safe and sound. There's a lot of new content to experience and frankly it seems the next 5 months are going to be a relentless stream of experiences between heroes and an additional scenario pack. I wanted to first apologise if people felt over the past few weeks we've produced or shared our content excessively. We had a lot of content to get through prior to RoRS and so it may have being a bit overwhelming. For those who don't know us, we are Alter-Egos a fan podcast from Australia that are focused on creating Marvel Champions content. https://alteregosmarvelchampions.podbean.com/ In August we produced an abundance of content to catch up with our schedule prior to the release of Rise of Red Skull. This resulted in us recording 8 full length episodes which included numerous content creator collaborators and an interview with designer Michael Boggs. We also are working on a deck analysis series called Honorary Deck which recently recommenced to good reception.We commenced a Youtube channel to further share our content though we are still working on how best to utilise that space So what will be new for Season 3? Well as I head towards full time employment next year we really need to find a system that is sustainable for the podcast. At present that appears to be one deck discussion per week and one podcast episode per week (of approx 30 mins). Season 3 will commence September 17th as we spend a bit longer than a week planning out what our road map is for the next few months. A season will officially be from one campaign box to another moving forward so that there are easy access points to the content. A few bits of feedback I wanted to address about our podcast here first. 1. Recently someone wrote a review stating our quality had dipped and there was too much content to keep up with. I apologise if that has been the experience of anyone here and I'd love to here any feedback if you felt the quality dived in anyway. I felt between a designer interview and numerous content creator guests Alter-Egos had a very deep and successful August but I'm very happy to take on board suggestions or criticism some of you might have had. 2. Audio mix. There was an issue with the audio in 1-2 episodes. I apologise for this. Due to lock down I can't pick up the equipment I ordered a while back (out of my own pocket) to address more easily. I'll be more cautious in setting up for recording to ensure the levels are balanced. Our podcast would not be possible without the support of our patrons who support our Patreon. During COVID and no employment it's been very kind of the community to help us sustain what we do. https://www.patreon.com/Alter_Egos?fan_landing=true As always feel free to reach out to me personally with any concerns, suggestions or feedback on the podcast.
