Episode 43: Fleming Unplugged

12/4/2018
More
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 |...

Episode 42: It's my birthday and I'll podcast if I want to

11/6/2018
More
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 -...

Episode 41: Know your win condition (don't suck)

10/23/2018
More
Getting us together to record these days is basically a miracle. Almost didn't happen again! But record we did. There's some brief discussion of a Second Edition tourney Mikhail and Franch attended and then some discussion about more X-Wing stuff. Don't really remember what it was all supposed to be about because Gordon just couldn't get past Franch being, well, Franch. Regardless, Steelers talk was kept to a minimum at the end of the show. You're welcome.

Episode 40: We're Franchless Again

10/2/2018
More
At least Franch wrote up our show notes, so not a complete loss. With our little tricycle of a podcast still missing its third wheel, Gordon and Mikhail try to pedal along by talking about the recent lists they've flown before eventually asking Ryan Fleming to hop on and save us. After all, Coruscant is this weekend, so who better to talk Coruscant with than Ryan? Turns out Ryan agreed to join us only if he was allowed to complain about the Steelers. After Ryan's rant, we washed his mouth...

Episode 39: Embrace Variance! And Gordon is an idiot

9/18/2018
More
We know you already knew that, but he's a super-idiot this episode. He might know what a Luddite is, but he still doesn't know how Iden Versio works. We apologize in advance. 12:30 - SHIRTS! | 18:15 - PLAYER'S PATH | 1:21:20 - TOURNEY TALK | 1:33:50 - STEELERS TALK

Episode 38: Let the past die. Kill it if you have to.

9/11/2018
More
Gordon would have preferred to have had the episode titled "You must unlearn what you have learned", said in his best Yoda voice no less, but Mikhail was inclined to go with the quote by a whiny, murderous brat. Having not recorded for almost two months, it was finally time to get together again to share their thoughts on the sunset that was X-Wing First Edition and the dawn of new era that begins this week with the launch of X-Wing Second Edition. Non-football fans (or just non-Steelers...

Episode 37: Just What The Doctor Ordered

7/17/2018
More
We mean that sort of literally. We spoke with Andrew Savoie, who happens to be an actual M.D. What does that have to do with X-Wing? Absolutely nothing, but we're still impressed. Turns out Andrew used to play X-Wing years ago. Now that he's done with his residency, he has more free time and thought he'd give X-Wing another go. Has he heard the good news? Does he know about X-Wing 2.0? We interview him to find out.

Episode 36: X-Wing 1.0 hype!!! Wait...what?

7/10/2018
More
That's right, the Stay On Target crew find themselves excited about X-Wing 1.0 again. Thanks Wave 14! 02:00 - WAR STORIES | 30:30 - WAVE 14

Episode 35: The Worlds That Was and X-Wing 2nd Edition

5/8/2018
More
Mikhail and Franch share Worlds stories from their recent trip to Minnesota, but it becomes clear soon enough that the crew wanted to talk more about the recently announced X-Wing 2nd Edition. 00:30 - WORLDS | 50:00 - X-WING 2.0

Episode 34: SOT means Stay-On-Target ON TOP!

4/24/2018
More
Those who listen to OCX get the reference, and Stay On Target now owns said reference. We won the right to say so and explain why at the end of the show. But don't try to skip ahead, because we'll know and then you'll be in trouble. Mikhail and Franch speculate about what will show up at World's in two weeks, but Gordon doesn't care (because he's not going). Gordon instead prefers to ponder about the overall state of the competitive game and speculate about X-Wing 2.0. 00:30 - WORLDS TALK |...

Episode 33: So Now They're Naming Tournament Kits After Us

3/13/2018
More
The new Q1 2018 X-wing kit is being described as a "Stay on Target" tournament. Clearly inspired by our podcast, of course. After all, it's not like the phrase "Stay on Target" is used elsewhere. You're welcome, FFG. Michigan Regional semi-finalist Tommy Adams joins Gordon, Mikhail and Franch to discuss his four ship rebel list. 03:30 - WAR STORIES | 01:01:40 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:20:00 - STOLEN PLANS

Episode 32: Gordon is the Best

2/20/2018
More
Dreams do come true! Who cares if it took a different Gordon than the show's host to climb the mountain top? Suffer with Mikhail and Franch in their dismay, having to listen to Gordon and guest sychophant Camden go on and on about the achievement of his namesake - Gordon Pinkerton - who won the Portland System Open. Oh yeah, and obligatory meta talk -- in all its Fenn/Ghost glory. 05:30 - WAR STORIES | 39:00 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:00:00 - STOLEN PLANS

Episode 31: The Devil's Apricot

2/6/2018

Gordon and Mikhail think they have the show all to themselves, but Franch crashes the party. Then DHaus of all people shows up to brag about being in another Organized Play promo pic. There's also talk about the Indy Regional.

Episode 30: The Killer B's

1/16/2018
More
It was almost a perfect weekend: X-wing streams everywhere and the Steelers (Big Ben, Brown and Bell) advancing to the AFC Championship. Ugh, the Steelers! Fine, at least Jeff Berling joins us for some meta analysis. Nevermind, he's not available. Okay, well, congrats to the Birmingham Barons podcast member Joel Killingsworth for going 15-0 across two events at PAX South? 3:40 - OPENING AND STEELERS RANT | 10:00 - WAR STORIES | 21:10 - FLIGHT PREP | 1:19:30 - STOLEN PLANS | 1:27:30 - CLOSING

Episode 29: We can't beat Duncan Howard

12/2/2017
More
I think we're a collective 0-4 against Duncan. This now forces us to prevent him from attending all future tournaments, its our only remaining option. Or maybe we play better...not sure about that one. In addition to discussing the emerging meta, we speculate about the TIE Silencer, which got its own article right *after* we recorded. Figures! 2:00 - IN THE HANGAR | 21:45 - WAR STORIES | 53:15 - OUTRYDER CUT VII

Episode 28: Come back to the dark side, we have cookies!

10/31/2017

Literally. Deroche, Franch and Mikhail eat cookies while recording, all very professional. And they discuss the recent FAQ - inbetween bites.

Duration:01:41:00

Episode 27: Missed it by *that* much

10/10/2017
More
Gordon, Mikhail, Franch and party crasher Jon Bruns (from Hornet Squadron Radio) discuss all manner of X-Wing topics: Recent tournaments and alternate formats, listener feedback, FFG's silence, and speculate about a possible System Open event at PAX East (which ends up no longer being speculation an hour after they record....figures). 8:30 - WAR STORIES | 43:30 - STOLEN PLANS | 1:41:00 - FLIGHT PREP | 1:44:30 - CLOSING

8/29/2017

Gordon, Mikhail and Franch are joined by special guest Mark Moriarty to discuss Mark's amazing alt-art cards, Gen-Con and the local game stores in which they play. Also highlighted are the upcoming Bluegrass Open and Crossroads Classic tournaments. 12:30 - WAR STORIES | 30:30 - STOLEN PLANS | 52:30 - STOLEN PLANS II | 1:07:00 - WAVE 12 | 1:24:00 - ASSORTED TOPICS

The Stay On Target crew is back after a slew of Store Championships post-Wave 11. Find out how they did and what their thoughts are on the FAQ 'leak' (not much given how it's been beaten to death already). Gordon tries to find out if Wave 11's impact on the game is either bad, good or just different. 2:22 - WAR STORIES | 27:30 - STOLEN PLANS | 1:02:00 - WAVE 11

In an attempt to bring about the end of the world, the Stay On Target crew record episodes in back-to-back weeks! Franch, Gordon and Mikhail speak with special guest Phil Horny about his current thoughts on the Imperial faction, and how it might fare in the soon-to-be release Wave 11 meta. 2:40 - WAR STORIES | 12:40 - STOLEN PLANS | 50:50 - WAVE 11
