Dreams do come true! Who cares if it took a different Gordon than the show’s host to climb the mountain top? Suffer with Mikhail and Franch in their dismay, having to listen to Gordon and guest sychophant Camden go on and on about the achievement of his namesake – Gordon Pinkerton – who won the Portland System Open. Oh yeah, and obligatory meta talk — in all its Fenn/Ghost glory.
Gordon and Mikhail think they have the show all to themselves, but Franch crashes the party. Then DHaus of all people shows up to brag about being in another Organized Play promo pic. There’s also talk about the Indy Regional.
It was almost a perfect weekend: X-wing streams everywhere and the Steelers (Big Ben, Brown and Bell) advancing to the AFC Championship. Ugh, the Steelers! Fine, at least Jeff Berling joins us for some meta analysis. Nevermind, he’s not available. Okay, well, congrats to the Birmingham Barons podcast member Joel Killingsworth for going 15-0 across two events at PAX South?
I think we’re a collective 0-4 against Duncan. This now forces us to prevent him from attending all future tournaments, its our only remaining option. Or maybe we play better…not sure about that one. In addition to discussing the emerging meta, we speculate about the TIE Silencer, which got its own article right *after* we recorded. Figures!
Literally. Deroche, Franch and Mikhail eat cookies while recording, all very professional. And they discuss the recent FAQ – in between bites.
Gordon, Mikhail, Franch and party crasher Jon Bruns (from Hornet Squadron Radio) discuss all manner of X-Wing topics: Recent tournaments and alternate formats, listener feedback, FFG’s silence, and speculate about a possible System Open event at PAX East (which ends up no longer being speculation an hour after they record….figures).
Gordon, Mikhail and Franch are joined by special guest Mark Moriarty to discuss Mark’s amazing alt-art cards, Gen-Con and the local game stores in which they play. Also highlighted are the upcoming Bluegrass Open and Crossroads Classic tournaments.
The Stay On Target crew is back after a slew of Store Championships post-Wave 11. Find out how they did and what their thoughts are on the FAQ ‘leak’ (not much given how it’s been beaten to death already). Gordon tries to find out if Wave 11’s impact on the game is either bad, good or just different.
In an attempt to bring about the end of the world, the Stay On Target crew record episodes in back-to-back weeks! Franch, Gordon and Mikhail speak with special guest Phil Horny about his current thoughts on the Imperial faction, and how it might fare in the soon-to-be release Wave 11 meta.
Franch, Gordon and Mikhail are joined by guest Camden Alcorn to discuss the new player experience in X-Wing, advice for newcomers to improve and how the veterans in the community can lend a hand.
