Part 4 of the Listener Series™, focusing on ways that we have found to be productive in actively getting better at the game, and how and why they work.

 

There's a lot of relevant and good information and links in the notes, we strongly recommend taking a look.

AGENCY! WE DID IT BOYS!

 

Why are people so nice? Stop it! Wave 12 dropped, is firing arcs and small bases, and is really good?  404 Salt Not Found.

 

Objectives dropped in the last bit, so we talk about ways to attempt unwholesomeness. Preemptive (now postemptive) krayts on top and the bottom for Austin.

Krayts still on top, wave 12 is super wholesome, the silencer is going to kill everyone. Also our cinnamon bun joins us, and Grasser no ballses his way out of being on.

The competitive season is starting up again! We have things to talk about that aren't just complaining all the time!

 

Bounty Update, Krayt Cup 3 Updates, Dice Trays, all sorts of fun, but mostly...

 

The sheathiwhatever article dropped, and is incredibly interesting.  MAKE X-WINGS GREAT AGAIN

We were lucky enough to get some of Steve Cameron's time, from Cascade Games.  Cascade ran all of the System Opens in the US in 2017, and is running all of the North American System Opens in 2018!

 

They do a fantastic job, and we're happy to get a small look behind the curtain!

More FAQ stuff.  How accurate are our FAQ predictions?  As long as we're cherrypicking from previous stuff, pretty accurate?  Where do we think the new FAQ leads up meta wise?  Find out this week on Carolina Krayts Z?

Ben deserts us! The bounty is back on for everyone!  What upgrade/change would have to be made for anyone to bother playing primary weapons in arc anymore?  Also, what's going on with the X-Wing community?  Calm down!

Actual Content?  JUDGE!!!!

 

Anyways, followup on a few things, but mostly the Wave 13 announcement, how to nerf Nym and why, and why advanced sensors is such a bad idea for a card.

 

UK Nationals review and how to git gud

 

Echolocation pics are in the notes, if you're looking for them!

Ben's back!  Also, wave 12 was announced.  Exciting!  With the Gencon results having had some time to settle, we talk about the win condition of Fair Ship Rebels and similar lists, compared to Rebel Regen.  Is it an abuse of the tournament structure/format?  Additionally, Chris is irrationally scared of Jostero

 

Also, Reddit FAQ.  If it drops, what effect do we expect it to have on the meta.  Any?  People aren't living in fear of mindlink anymore, but Dengar is a different story!

Two parts!

Part one Tyler, Chris, THE Zack Mathews, and Travis effectively chant KRAYTS ON TOP KRAYTS ON TOP KRAYTS ON TOP for a couple of hours

 

Part two Tyler, Chris, Paul Heaver, and your congenital host the great Chumbalaya and later joined by two very special guests attempt to stay awake Sunday morning in the convention hall of gencon and talk about pretty much all of gencon.

 

Chris's highlight of Gencon:

Aug 14, 2017

Tyler, Chris, THE ZACK MATHEWS CAROLINA KRAYTS PODCAST, and Trav Trav get together to follow up on aces and what makes the game fun.  How are aces different than bumpmasters and advanced SLAM?  Also, we're actually having fun now!  What should you take to Gencon?  Spoiler alert: whatever you want, just draw matchups like a god.

 

We were very short on time this weekend, so it's a bit of return to classic form

 

Also, for you Christian people out there, meet up with Zack before the swiss rounds at Gencon!

Aug 7, 2017

 

Guns for Hire stuff, I guess?  More importantly, what's going on with Wave 11?  Are we having fun now?  Are YOU having fun now?

 

We talk about game design in X-Wing.  Is it OK that I can do unstoppable damage to you?  Is it OK that I can be immune to damage from you?  What's an NPE?  What does any of this have to do with competitive play?!  Also, a discussion on control, what it means, and no, it's not just stress and ion, be less bad.
