Stay On Target | An X-Wing Podcast
88 minutes | a month ago
Episode 61: Don't call it a comeback
You might not know this, but it's been just over a year since we last recorded. Lies you say? It's true...all of it (insert Han Solo meme here). Gordon finally felt safe enough to come out of his Covid cave, Mikhail's grown a beard to look more like Gordon, Camden got tired of not podcasting so he started his own show, and Franch welcomed baby Magnolia to his family! Proud Papa indeed!! The gang recaps the past year's worth of X-Wing happenings and whines about the lack of a promised points update.

Episode 60: Franch has the Coronavirus
Fine, he probably doesn't, but we thought we saw him licking his iPad and iPads are made in China, so our logic is infallible. Topics mostly revolved around recent Store Championships and the current Hyperspace meta, and some discussion about new players getting involved in their first competitive games. And some brief Steelers talk. 00:11:15 - WAR STORIES | 01:07:20 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:31:00 - STOLEN PLANS | 01:35:10 - STEELERS TALK

Episode 59: POINTS POINTS POINTS
Let's face it -- when the points change in X-Wing every six months, it's just the best. Not much got nerfed this time around, but a LOT of generic ships were lowered in cost. We're excited, and you should be too!

Episode 58: X-Wing New Year's Resolutions
With the new year comes the hope and promise of X-Wing resolutions! Mikhail wants to attend a specific tournament that he's never played in before. Franch vows to be more faction diverse. And Gordon....well, Gordon is already a hot mess, getting stuck trying to live up to his X-Wing promise on the very first day he makes the attempt!

Episode 57: Gordon and Franch, sitting in a tree...
...P-O-D-C-A-S-T(ING). Even though Mikhail was unavailable, Gordon and Franch felt like recording anyway.

Episode 56: Worlds 2019
The gang spends their Halloween recording a show, which is what happens when you don't have children. Highlights include Mikhail sharing stories from his recent World's experience, Franch leading them through a "buy or sell" segment about various ships and upgrades, and Gordon pondering how he was labeled a virus while away in Scotland. In other words, two of the hosts contribute something useful about X-Wing.

Episode 55: Practice makes perfect...or not
Franch and Mikhail attempt to host the show on their own without their fearless leader, Gordon. But don’t worry, they are joined by Mark Moriarity from Hangar 19 to discuss the hyperspace trial that happened this past weekend in Louisville where Franch proved no practice is the best practice. The guys also talk about the hyperspace meta and then some general world championship info to get listeners prepped and ready for what they should should expect. No timestamps this episode, so stick around (or don’t) towards the end for some football talk.

Episode 54: Use the Force, [insert your name here]
Gordon, Mikhail, and guest Ryan Fleming discuss the typical things you'd expect on a show that's about X-Wing, but we all know why Ryan is there, right? You'll know when it's time to stop listening if you don't care about the inevitable Pittsburgh Steelers sportsball talk. Sorry, no timestamps either. Failing to write down the time stamps is what happens when Franch isn't there, so blame him, not Gordon. In fact, that's sage advice for just about everything: blame Franch.

Episode 53: The GenCon Preview Episode
GOOOOOOD MORNING X-WING!!!! Hey, this is....wait, wrong show. Sorry. The whole gang is finally back together again as Mikhail resumes his cohosting responsibilities once more after being extradited to Kentucky from Florida. Obviously that's not true, but this is what happens when they let Gordon write the preview copy. So listen in on some War Stories (what they played recently), some Flight Prep (GenCon predictions), and everyone's favorite segement: Steelers Talk (Steelers Talk!!!). 09:30 - WAR STORIES | 31:15 - FLIGHT PREP | 1:39:30 - STEELERS TALK

Episode 52: Judge Franch - HE IS THE LAW!!!
Louisville Hyperspace Trial winner Joe Konopa and local Louisville player Rebel Mike join a Mikhail-less cast to discuss the recent tourney that was held in the Bluegrass state. The cast then attempts to host a trail of their own -- of the legal variety -- in which Rebel Beef stands accused. Yes...funnier in concept than execution. 00:00 - INTRO & WAR STORIES | 40:00 - SOT COURT | 01:50:45 - FLIGHT PREP | 1:56:30 - STOLEN PLANS

Episode 51: ASMR
The title is an Easter Egg. Go find it. 1:41:30 - STEELERS TALK
109 minutes | 2 years ago
Episode 50: Mountain Dew Mouth
You're not alone, Gordon didn't know what that meant either. Tune in to find out! Oh look, it's Episode 50. That's right...Stay On Target, where half the amount of content produced takes twice as long! This week's show is mostly the past month's FFG news and discussions about the emerging meta in both formats. Yes, we discuss the elephant in the room. 51:00 - HYPERSPACE | 1:17:00 - EXTENDED

Episode 49: Blast from the Past
Original Stay On Target host and creator Cory "CooMasterCoo" Cooley joins the gang to discuss his return to X-Wing and reflect on the recent Hyperspace Trial that was held in Murray, KY.
100 minutes | 2 years ago
Episode 48: All Hail Mikhail
Gordon and Mikhail are joined this week by special guest Ryan Staniszewski of the OCX podcast to discuss their recent experience at the Hyperspace Trial that was held in Springfield, Ohio. In fact, one of them won the tournament! You'll never guess who!! Listen to find out!!! Okay, fine, the title of the episode has a hint!!!!

Episode 47: Of Dice and Men
Mostly about dice, less about men. "Getting diced" sure has come up as a topic a lot lately, so the Stay on Target crew thought they'd chime in as well by compiling amazing amounts of statistical research alongside copious amounts of insight. And then Asa from Back to Dials publishes an article on the day we record that summarizes it all better than we ever could. What a jerk. So we have him on as a guest during his lunch break. 05:30 - WAR STORIES | 35:30 - HYPERSPACE TRIAL PREDICTIONS | 50:45 - INTERVIEW WITH ASA AND FLIGHT PREP | 1:30:30 - HYPERSPACE TRIALS ADVICE | 1:43:00 - RESOURCES | 1:53:40 - FFG Beef | 2:00:00 - QUICKBUILDS

Episode 46: X-Wing 3.0
As promised, FFG published the points and ship configuration updates on schedule. It certainly made for some easy-to-write show notes: “Discuss points changes.” 12:00 - GENERICS AND REBELS | 55:30 - EMPIRE | 1:20:00 - SCUM | 1:57:30 - RESISTANCE | 2:03:30 - FIRST ORDER | 2:20:00 - PROUD PAPA
128 minutes | 2 years ago
Episode 45: The Outryder That Was...
Was there meta-talk? Of course. Speculation about the upcoming point changes? You betcha. A detailed analysis about the Separatist Alliance preview? Eh, not so much. But there was a lot talk about the recent Outryder Cup VIII event that was recently held in Indianapolis. The crew shares their Outryder experiences, and then Gordon drops an unexpected bombshell. 2:45 - WAR STORIES | 1:05:30 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:41:40 - STOLEN PLANS | 01:50:00 - STEELERS TALK
133 minutes | 2 years ago
Episode 44: Poe + F.O. means new show!
The release of two new factions makes for a great excuse to get together and record a new episode, right? You would think so, so we decided to do this at the last minute -- apparently Franch doesn't do "last minute." That's okay, Mikhail has an opinion about everything and carries the show because he actually plays the game of XWing (where as Gordon has played just *once* since the last episode). We also spend time with our producer David Cottingham, who shares with us how his X-Wing 2.0 experience has been so far. 14:00 - X-WING | 1:13:00 - PRODUCER DAVE

Episode 43: Fleming Unplugged
Eeeew. It had been a month since the last episode and the Steelers just lost another game, so we had no choice but to record a new show and asked Ryan Fleming to once again join us. It's strictly pure coincidence that Ryan also earned his World's ticket at the recent System Open in Philadelphia, but this let us talk actual X-Wing for awhile, thereby keeping the whining about the Steelers to a relative minimum at the end. 11:45 - WAR STORIES | 45:00 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:15:00 - STOLEN PLANS | 1:31:00 - STEELERS TALK
126 minutes | 2 years ago
Episode 42: It's my birthday and I'll podcast if I want to
This episode was recorded on Gordon's 52nd birthday. As tempting as it might have been to make the entire discussion about just him -- which would have been really great, mind you -- special guest Mark Moriarty joined the crew to talk about actual X-Wing content. Even Gordon couldn't ignore something as rare as that on this show. Listen in as Mark discusses the Fundamentals of List Building that sometimes eludes newer and older players alike. 6:40 - WAR STORIES | 27:45 - META TALK | 41:10 - FUNDAMENTALS OF LIST BUILDING | 1:56:00 - CLOSING
