Howdy folks! Holy moly it's the most regular update since Nashcon, something must be wrong...or right...I don't know but I do know we're back with another episode! This week Chris and Sooner get together again sans Todd and talk all things TTS Season 6 where our very own semi-finalist Sooner regales us with his exploits and talks about his top cut matches to get to this point. We also address Sam Spam taking up the entire top 4 and ruminate on some other balance questions as well as what power affiliations will show up in the next league when changes hit. Casual Chris updates everyone on shop happenings at TAG recently, and we go over the new X-Men/Brotherhood spoilers.

56 - New Old Character Updates!
Crazy how fast time passes! A whole month since our last episode, jeez! Sorry folks, Sooner abandoned us, and then Todd abandoned us, but never fear we're here with a fresh episode of the Turn Zer0 Podcast! This week is as straightforward as it gets, with Todd on the lam playing Flesh and Blood, Chris and Sooner get together to talk about new updates for some of our older characters. We talk Medusa, Valkyrie, Enchantress, and the Guardians! We also introduce Sooner's TTS Corners new theme music as voted on by the Turn Zer0 Music League, answer a listener question, and talk about the state of the game. It's been a bit of a crapshoot ever since Nashcon but we're working on getting back to regular schedule for you guys, we appreciate you listening as always and please enjoy this week's Turn Zer0 Podcast!

54 - Nashcon Top 4 Roundtable
This episode brought to you by the top 4 and ONLY the top 4! You heard me right all scrubs to the bench!  Sooner kicked Chris and Todd to the curb to host this one and brought along his new best friends Mike DeLuca, Merzain, and Jimmydehand for a top 4 Nashcon roundtable, and no I'm not bitter at all why do you ask? Anyway, the guys talk strategy, tournament prep, results, anything and everything you can think of related to showing up and showing out at the biggest IRL MCP tournament of the year! The rest of us will be back to our regularly scheduled programming in a week or two now that tournament hijinks have settled down. But for now please enjoy this weeks Turn Zer0 Podcast!

53 - Lizard, Kraven, Ancient One, and Moon Knight
Hello friends - we have an interesting episode for you today.  We went into this with just a terrible plan in place to read some character cards and riff on Twitch comments and Discord questions for a whole episode. We successfully did that. HOWEVER, it went off the rails in a few places. Number one, nobody hit record on our audio recorder so this audio is ripped directly from the Twitch stream and is therefore of questionable quality and essentially uneditable..or at least it would take more effort to edit than I have. Also, we were a little loose with the booze from the three hours we spent at a bar before the podcast while waiting for Sooner to be ready so it gets a little wild. ANYWAY. We do in fact talk about all the things in the episode title but there's also a lot of nonsense, which is basically our calling card now. So we hope you enjoy and we'll catch you for the next one!

52 - Reroll Clarification, Omega Red, Jean Grey, and Cassandra Nova
Hey folks! We're back after a bit of a hiatus after that tier list nonsense. This week Sooner, Todd, and Chris are here to talk about reroll rules "clarifications", cover some TTS league business, and dig into Omega Red, Jean Grey, and Cassandra Nova's character cards. This week the episode was streamed live on Twitch and we think we're going to keep that up going forward so keep an eye out for links that will post to our Facebook page a few hours before showtime every other Sunday. We'll do our best to keep it consistent but we're a mercurial bunch so if it doesn't happen one week don't freak out! Also, I have nothing to give you except maybe a special Discord role but I'm looking for suggestions for a little music introduction for "Sooner's TTS Corner" which is what we've named the segment where Sooner updates us scrubs on TTS league happenings. We'll have a post in the "Daily Discussion" channel of our Discord for suggestions, if we choose your suggestion we'll make sure to give you something valueless but fun! Thanks for listening everyone and enjoy this week's Turn Zer0 Podcast!

51.5 Tier List Part Two
Holy moly we did it! Chris, Todd, Sooner, Mike, Menion, Merzain, and Justin all got together and live-streamed a drunken tier list episode. This thing gets crazier every time and lasted FIVE HOURS. We've broken the thing into two pieces (only because Anchor wouldn't let the full thing post at once) so you can digest it at your own pace. Enjoy as you listen to us try to coherently rate every character in the game as Chris, Todd, Sooner, and Mike descend into a drunken stupor. Lots of yelling, cursing, and inappropriate joking takes place to listen at your own risk! Thanks to everyone who was present at our stream and check out the Facebook for links to the video as well as links to a Google drive document with our rankings on it.

49 - Quicksilver, More Busted Extracts, and Mister Sinister Redeemed?!
This week Sooner, Todd, and Chris are joined by Mike to talk about new releases! We cover Quicksilver and his impact or lack of impact on the game, the possibility of redemption for Mister Sinister, and yet another busted extract messing up the game for us (this was recorded before the announcement that the objective should be on map C). We tried to limit our conversation to characters we've played from the new release so we don't get to Sin and Scarlet Witch this episode but we still have plenty to talk about! Come hang out and enjoy this week's Turn Zer0 Podcast!

48 - Meh-ster Meh-nister, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and the Banned/Restricted List
This week Sooner left Todd and Chris home alone while he went on vacation and of course, they ran amok with their neighborhood pal Menion. The kids talk Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Mr. Sinister who Todd refers to as the most "Meh" of all the "Meh" characters in the game. Can a take that boring be spicy?? Anyway, we also get into the new banned/restricted list where our old friend Hired Muscle makes a re-appearance almost 6 months after we announced the card was busted on the podcast. Hope you enjoy this weeks episode of the Turn Zer0 Podcast!

We then switch gears to talk about the state of turn one plays and their impact on the game right now and what we expect going forward.
01:00:18
February 10, 2021
42 - The Grab Bag
This week Sooner, Chris, and Todd tackle a number of topics and have too much to say to limit us to one theme so welcome to the grab bag! We talk TTS Season 4 updates, playing against the meta, how to deal with dice that sometimes go bad, A-Force, TAG auction draft results, and more! It's a free-flowing MCP stream of consciousness so feel free to come hang out with us and (hopefully) pick up some solid advice.
