May 22, 2017

Ben and Tyler are back!  As usual, with Chris and THE Zack Mathews, and Travis returns!  Gathering to talk about nothing, as usual, but also the store champ meta, and how to learn from winning and losing.


THE Zack Mathews Floor Rules:

Ben sleeps through recording again!  Tyler has to work!  So, Chris is joined by THE Zack Mathews, and our listener AND TOP 16 AT WORLDS Travis "The Johnson" Johnson.


This is by far our longest episode, we cover pretty much everything from worlds, the upcoming meta, and where we think the current problems in X-Wing are.  Also, how much better we are than Gold Squadron.


Of course, a discussion about cheating on camera. We're onto you, Justin Phua, note taking is strictly against the rules!  Also, fly casual?  Whatever, just have some fun.


Manaroo being fair and balanced:

Just a quick recording Chris and Tyler take in the car, with some great interviews THE Zack Mathews took in Europe and at Worlds.


Full length Worlds recap next time!

May 1, 2017

Last week before Worlds!  THE Zack Mathews is MIA in Europe, but Ben, Chris, and Tyler discuss:

  • Worlds Streaming!
  • Loopin' Chewie World Championships!
  • What else to do at Worlds!
  • Tactics while playing aces

We also give Dion Morales of the shameful Gold Squadron Podcast a call to talk about... a lot of things, but mostly how he pronounces his name wrong.

And it wouldn't be a KRAYT episode without talking about completely related Magic and StarCraft stuff, so that's in there too.
