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!

Notes (Uhh, sure)

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!

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.
