Welcome back from the flight simulator! Today we bring in our favorite pirate janitor Blair Bunke, from the Scum and Villainy podcast, to help us clean our dirty asteroid.  While he's here he talks about the state of the meta, how you can win with Z-95s, and his top 5 X-Wing heroes.

This week we take a look at regional championships which have been played so far.  What lists should you be looking out for in your current meta?  How does Blair Bunke win? Is Talonbane Cobra a viable threat? Find out this week!

No timestamps this week, ALL REGIONALS!

Also, we may have a few list errors due to List Juggler being inaccurate.  We'll fix any glaring mistakes next week.

Rookie X-wing pilots, this is the episode for you!

 

This week we bring aboard Rookie Pilot Mike Corse to talk about how new players can make a clean hyperspace jump into the game. Did you get a Core Set for Christmas and have no idea what to do next? We discuss buying guides for the game at a modest $150 budget.

Veteran players, worry not! There's content for you here too. The gang also talks about how to deal with the influx of "fresh meat" coming to tables near you. Also, Ryan throws out a bounty for anyone who can accomplish the "God Shot": 5 Crits with Omega Ace using Swarm Leader.

FLY BETTER!
