The X-Wing community has been busy as of late preparing their very best squadrons for the heated competition known as Regionals.  Hosts Ryan, Dee, and Dallas discuss the most recent regional tournaments and how different squads have fared.  

Also, Dallas talks in detail about his Fresno victory and Ryan makes a BOLD proclamation about how his Regional may go.  (Which by the time you're listening has already gone by.)

Intensify your forward deflector shields and FLY BETTER!

In a land filled with U-boats and saggy old Emperors, one man continues to fly what some consider the "purest" X-Wing squadron...the TIE Swarm.  As per the Mynock creed, Dallas Parker [Texx] continues to stubbornly stick to his guns when it comes to his favorite archtype. As fate may have it, the "Crack Swarm" has vaulted to the top of the meta, and we have the man, the myth, the legend on to discuss it.  

Also, we find out just how many snacks can fit in the NEW MILLENNIUM FALCON!  That's right, Heroes of the Resistance has been announced and we are eager to share with you our thoughts on just how good it can be.

Have you ever dreamed of flying in one of the most elite ships in the entire Imperial Fleet? Do you want to K-Turn and still take actions?  Do you want to fire an ion cannon THEN fire your primary? Do you want a FREE evade token for moving quickly through a dogfight?  

Well then recruit, the TIE Defender might be for you!  This week Ryan and Dee interview possibly the greatest Defender Pilot in the history of X-Wing...the legendary Biophysical. Yes this is the guy who was WINNING by running just Rexlar Brath and Colonel Vessary...pre Defender fix!  

So paint on some blood stripes and buckle up, it's going to be one heck of a ride.

With the first batch of X-Wing Regionals in the bag, we examine successful squads.

The first half-dozen Regionals of 2016 are history, and the environment has been defined (albeit not conquered) by "U-boat" Contracted Scouts.  In their meta-shaping wake, a variety of Imperial Aces contend with TIE Crack Swarms, tanky Rebels, and... A-Wing Swarms?

And just so we aren't COMPLETELY useful, we close by quibbling over rules and stirring the drama pot.

Fly Better!
