I listen in the car whilst driving around for work, so I love the long episodes, as long as it all stays relevant.

I understand though that doing the shorter episodes makes it easier for you to get it all sorted though.

So I'm happy to pick up what you're throwing down.

Appreciate the work you all do.

I have not listened yet but it was a lot of fun to record and I am glad that the more structured format seems to be making the episodes shorter.

For all the people who are missing the longer flight decks, there is scope for peoples tournament runs to become a main segment for some shows which will let us go deep on how they did, what they flew against and what their dice were like as we know lots of you enjoyed that, but we wanted to ket the flight deck moving and keep that segment brief.

I am sure the next show will have more than enough game break down for people :D

I liked it, though my main takeaway was Paul's 4-ship Rebel list, as I love rebels and really don't like having to fly two large ships to survive the current meta :). I don't mind the shorter format, as my commute to work has been shorter lately, so it matches perfectly!


Any chance you could put up all lists mentioned in the episode on the blog, or here, or both? Would be a nice service, even though I've already reassembled Paul's list from the podcast so I can try it myself :)

Thanks!  I mainly made the list because I like running small ships, and spreading out my answers to palp aces.  It's been fun, since it plays differently in every game with all the different mechanics, and I never feel like I'm auto-losing a game.  It's probably not going to win a high level event, but it makes your opponent make difficult choices.
