I love this game. When I'm not playing I love to listen to podcasts about it. There are some great podcasts out there. I know that it takes a lot of work to put them together. So thank you.
But I have have some advice if you are going to Podcast about X-wing.
First - you really need to know what you are talking about. I'm not going to name names, but I was recently listening to a podcast where the people didn't know if unguided rockets would require you to spend the focus token even though it clearly doesn't say that you have to. Needless to say I had to unfollow that podcast. (There were other problems with it). I am not saying that everyone needs to be an expert or a worlds level competitor, but you need to know the rules themselves.
Second - Stick to your focus. I have no problem with a podcast that says it is going to cover all sorts of games or maybe all sorts of FFG games or even all sorts of Star Wars games. And I don't mind it when a podcast has a little tangent from time to time. But If I subscribe to your podcast it is because I expect it to be about what you say it is going to be about. There is another podcast where the people making got sick of (this time it was Armada), and they haven't really made any podcasts for some time. In truth I miss the podcasts I would rather them not post then post a podcast and talk about a game for a hour that I don't play. Also I find when you don't stick to your focus you will struggle with knowing your stuff.
Third - Love your game. I don't care if you don't like a particular ship or the current state of the meta. And someone might be interested listening to a podcast where people rage and rant, but I love this game. I think it the best game I have ever played. Nothing really turns me off like when people get so caught up in the imperfections of this game and miss all the great fun that in can be. It makes me wonder why the are even wasting their time doing a podcast about a game that they don't like.
Fourth - And this is simple - I need to be able to hear what you are saying. I know good sound equipment can be expensive, but sometimes I think sound quality can be greatly improved with some simple mic dicisplin, enunciation and simply not talking over each other.. I would recommend that you listen to yourself. If it is at all muddled to you (you already know what you are saying) I will not be able to understand you as I am driving to work.
Lastlying - do more. Those of you who are doing a good job, thank you you. Those of you who need to improve. Improve. I don't want you to stop, I just want you to get better.
This paragraph took me on such a sweet journey! Only 24 words, but probably the most confusing/philosophical 24 words I've ever read.
"The only faction that gets generics with EPT"
I'm already locked in. Ready to retort with "except for the other two factions" or something similar. But I could already tell it wasn't worth it, and so read on...
"Undercosted ships, under costed EPT, and under costed crew"
Not true; fair enough, but comparing faction specific EPTs is kinda pointless given how few there are; not true at all.
"Enough with the bad tasting jokes hey."
That "oh this guy is scissor drunk" moment. This isn't internet belligerence. This is drunk internet belligerence. Where do I sign and how much is your popcorn?
*Edit* totally meant to say "actually drunk" not "scissor drunk" but scissor drunk is, will be, and always should have been a thing. So I'm keeping it. You win this round, autocorrect.
