It's time for regional round up Part 2! Rytackle, The Greedy Dragon, and Texx talk about the mix of different lists they've seen have success from across the world.  Through the process they find that just because a list may not look dominant on paper, doesn't mean it can't bring home the gold.  They also discuss their final takeaways from regional season.

No timestamps this week, just all regional talk!

Now that regionals are FINALLY over, the Mynock crew decide to continue their long overdue recap of the various winners from across the globe!  Dallas breaks down all the various TIE Swarms we see, Dee provides some valuable (if not a bit conceited) input, and Rytackle gets overly excited when he sees a certain pilot in the top 4 of a regional...

Fantasy Flight Games held back a few choice snippets about Wave 9, such as maneuver dials and certain upgrade cards. However, they launched them into the wild with limited pre-release sales at GenCon, and we now know the precise contents of each ship in this wave. We break down the previously unknown details about the ARC-170, Mandalorian Concord Dawn Protectorate Fang Fighter, and Lancer-class Pursuit Craft.

To tantalize us even further, FFG also dropped the first Wave 10 preview, announcing Sabine's TIE Fighter (a Rebel hijacked TIE), the Upsilon-class Shuttle (Kylo Ren's whip), and the Quadjumper (the tugboat Rey wanted to grand theft instead of the Falcon). We discuss the revealed content, and attempt to decipher the mystery items from the preview photo and clues in the article. (Dee's eyes melted staring at a zoom enlarged copy of the photo.)

Finally, we fangasm at the new Rogue One trailer! We intend on tightening up moving forward, but this is a longer episode to deal with all of the news just dropped on us - enjoy!
