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.
You’re not alone, Gordon didn’t know what that meant either. Tune in to find out! Oh look, it’s Episode 50. That’s right…Stay On Target, where half the amount of content produced takes twice as long! This week’s show is mostly the past month’s FFG news and discussions about the emerging meta in both formats. Yes, we discuss the elephant in the room.
Original Stay On Target host and creator Cory “CooMasterCoo” Cooley joins the gang to discuss his return to X-Wing and reflect on the recent Hyperspace Trial that was held in Murray, KY.
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!!!!
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.
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.”
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.
