  1. I would listen to the Podcast before expressing undue concerns.
  2. So I take a closer look at the cards we know about for the TIE Aggressor and some of the potential build paths. What do you guys think? Kris
  3. I would argue that having to play ships that don't exist yet. With upgrades that don't exist with changes to current cards that have not been enacted yet, against other squadrons made up of different ships that don't exist yet, with different upgrades that don't exist yet could actually be a detriment to practice for an event. If you are playing something in the current meta your game has relevance. If you are playing something that may never exist it may or may not have relevance. In reference to the FAQ specifically, even if you know the date of the change, you then have the choice to make of flying and practicing what is good now or flying and practicing what you think may be good later. If sandbagging 3 or 4 events in the run up to a change is a competitive advantage or not is up to you to decide.
  4. Hi all, So I took a closer look at what we know about the Scurrg H-6 Bomber and think there is some good potential for the S&V faction to develop a few bombing lists. What do you all think? Kris
  5. I would point out that I always sound this way And my flight decks are short Directed at the OP, I obviously can't speak for all podcasts BUT (going on to speak for all podcasts) I know that constructive criticism and discord between Listeners and hosts is mostly a good thing. I would either just post your full complaints here or one the relevant Podcasts Facebook page. Kris P.S. NOVA is back on scheduled now and we are back to recording every two weeks and I keep hassling Ed to trim people Flight Decks and keep us all in line
  6. Hi all The latest episode of NOVA Sqn Radio is live so you can get your fix of the fixes as we talk about the new X-Wing FAQ and go in depth on the Big Four as the main topic. Welcome to NOVA Squadron Radio! This week we cover all of the meta changes that have happened with the release of the new FAQ. Top meta lists have been effected and what will all this mean?

  7. Crap that's a big picture of me looking tired...
  8. Is it just C-3PO and done or is there more to it than that?
  9. I would point out that by investing in a collection purely for its Competitive Viability is the best way to maximize future losses due to Nerfs. There is nothing wrong with spending the minimum amount possible to field the most competitive squad you can, it happens in every game of this type, be it 40k, Warmahords, Malifaux whatever but expecting to only have to do that once is, in my opinion extremely naive. Nothing is going to be at the top forever. Be it through nerfs which have been a thing since Wave 4 when they hit how cloak works to specifically reign in Whisper; or through the evolution of the Meta, which saw to the decline of Quad TLT. No list has remained as the best list. Sure it sucks if you buy something literally right before a nerf comes but this conclusion seems rather flawed. Kris
  10. We finally have NOVA Sqn Radio back up to date and we are on our normal recording scheduled again now! So for your enjoyment here: Episode 65 – The State of the Game Welcome to NOVA Squadron Radio! This week we cover the C-ROC news and all of the epic goodness it will bring to the game. We then deviate from our norm just a bit to discuss the current state of X-Wing and where we feel the game is competitively and beyond. All of that and a LOT more.

  11. It was not the suggestion of of everyone on NOVA to hold Manaroo back. I have spoken a few times about making sure you are getting value out of Manaroo by spending here health appropriately and taking her shots, using her to occupy table space and control movement. You are correct that she should be played completely differently in Parattanni to Dengaroo. I think Manaroo is undisputably the best engine for a Mind Link list but you have to weigh the match, is an extra focus token a turn on Fenn/Ventress worth sacrificing any other use of Manaroo to keep that engine intact. Most of the time I can see better uses, but if someone is willing to commit to chasing her, I am all for running her away and taking the positional advantage my opponent has just handed me. Thanks for listening! Kris
  12. So Ep 63 and Ep 64 are live now. 65 is done and should be up later on this week which puts us back up to date! Thanks for the patience everyone. Kris
  13. I don't know, I have apparently made 200 videos in the 8 months I have been doing DiceHate on YouTube, that plus all the content for Monday Night Gaming on the Sentry Box Events channel and I must have the flight deck covered, and I am not even the only person doing it!
  14. Thanks for Listening to the show and caring enough that we were behind. I think I have listened to more NOVA in the last 6 weeks than before I was on the show! All caught up now thought so it was worth it. Kris
  15. Just as an Update, Ep 63 and Ep 64 are all done now, Ed should be sending me Ep 65 soon (that was the Outrider cup show) and that will be done for next week so I would expect a glut of episodes and then we are up to date again and we should be back to an episode every two weeks. Thanks Kris
