Fine, he probably doesn’t, but we thought we saw him licking his iPad and iPads are made in China, so our logic is infallible. Topics mostly revolved around recent Store Championships and the current Hyperspace meta, and some discussion about new players getting involved in their first competitive games. And some brief Steelers talk.
Let’s face it — when the points change in X-Wing every six months, it’s just the best. Not much got nerfed this time around, but a LOT of generic ships were lowered in cost. We’re excited, and you should be too!
With the new year comes the hope and promise of X-Wing resolutions! Mikhail wants to attend a specific tournament that he’s never played in before. Franch vows to be more faction diverse. And Gordon….well, Gordon is already a hot mess, getting stuck trying to live up to his X-Wing promise on the very first day he makes the attempt!
…P-O-D-C-A-S-T(ING). Even though Mikhail was unavailable, Gordon and Franch felt like recording anyway.
The gang spends their Halloween recording a show, which is what happens when you don’t have children. Highlights include Mikhail sharing stories from his recent World’s experience, Franch leading them through a “buy or sell” segment about various ships and upgrades, and Gordon pondering how he was labeled a virus while away in Scotland. In other words, two of the hosts contribute something useful about X-Wing.
Franch and Mikhail attempt to host the show on their own without their fearless leader, Gordon. But don’t worry, they are joined by Mark Moriarity from Hangar 19 to discuss the hyperspace trial that happened this past weekend in Louisville where Franch proved no practice is the best practice. The guys also talk about the hyperspace meta and then some general world championship info to get listeners prepped and ready for what they should should expect. No timestamps this episode, so stick around (or don’t) towards the end for some football talk.
Gordon, Mikhail, and guest Ryan Fleming discuss the typical things you’d expect on a show that’s about X-Wing, but we all know why Ryan is there, right? You’ll know when it’s time to stop listening if you don’t care about the inevitable Pittsburgh Steelers sportsball talk. Sorry, no timestamps either. Failing to write down the time stamps is what happens when Franch isn’t there, so blame him, not Gordon. In fact, that’s sage advice for just about everything: blame Franch.
GOOOOOOD MORNING X-WING!!!! Hey, this is….wait, wrong show. Sorry.
The whole gang is finally back together again as Mikhail resumes his cohosting responsibilities once more after being extradited to Kentucky from Florida. Obviously that’s not true, but this is what happens when they let Gordon write the preview copy. So listen in on some War Stories (what they played recently), some Flight Prep (GenCon predictions), and everyone’s favorite segement: Steelers Talk (Steelers Talk!!!).
Louisville Hyperspace Trial winner Joe Konopa and local Louisville player Rebel Mike join a Mikhail-less cast to discuss the recent tourney that was held in the Bluegrass state. The cast then attempts to host a trail of their own — of the legal variety — in which Rebel Beef stands accused. Yes…funnier in concept than execution.
The title is an Easter Egg. Go find it.
