Gordon and Mikhail are joined this week by special guest Ryan Staniszewski of the OCX podcast to discuss their recent experience at the Hyperspace Trial that was held in Springfield, Ohio. In fact, one of them won the tournament! You’ll never guess who!! Listen to find out!!! Okay, fine, the title of the episode has a hint!!!!
Join Mike and DHaus this week as they review a few of the Convergence cards spoiled in the past week, including the new moxie MAZ!
Mostly about dice, less about men. “Getting diced” sure has come up as a topic a lot lately, so the Stay on Target crew thought they’d chime in as well by compiling amazing amounts of statistical research alongside copious amounts of insight. And then Asa from Back to Dials publishes an article on the day we record that summarizes it all better than we ever could. What a jerk. So we have him on as a guest during his lunch break.
We’ve got a new Chewie, Enfys Nest, and some Soresu Mastery! The guys breakdown this week’s spoilers and debrief our Dryden Vos challenge.
Holy spoilers, Batman! Between a new draft set, a Palpatine deck, and an article about downgrades, we have a LOT to talk about this week. We also issue a new “Make It Work” Challenge to everyone!
As promised, FFG published the points and ship configuration updates on schedule. It certainly made for some easy-to-write show notes: “Discuss points changes.”
Can you believe we made it to 50 episodes?! We can’t believe the internet still lets us do this, but here we are! This week we talk about Mike playing Solo Sabine at a regional, our favorite moments from two years of playing this game, and what we look forward to with rotation. We also issue a new “Make It Work” Challenge to everyone!
Was there meta-talk? Of course. Speculation about the upcoming point changes? You betcha. A detailed analysis about the Separatist Alliance preview? Eh, not so much. But there was a lot talk about the recent Outryder Cup VIII event that was recently held in Indianapolis. The crew shares their Outryder experiences, and then Gordon drops an unexpected bombshell.
The release of two new factions makes for a great excuse to get together and record a new episode, right? You would think so, so we decided to do this at the last minute — apparently Franch doesn’t do “last minute.” That’s okay, Mikhail has an opinion about everything and carries the show because he actually plays the game of XWing (where as Gordon has played just *once* since the last episode). We also spend time with our producer David Cottingham, who shares with us how his X-Wing 2.0 experience has been so far.
Oh how time flies. We are officially two years old as a podcast! And what do you know, as a birthday present for The Jedi Trials, FFG posted an article spoiling the next expansion “Convergence” for Destiny in 2019, so DHaus and Mike take some time to give their first impressions of the cards.
