I thought the 2v2 tourney was a lot of fun at Worlds this year(I thought it was going to be awful). Not something I would do a lot but it's nice to play from time to time.

2 hours sounds reasonable assuming players have some experience with the format. Which at Worlds I would say is a safe assumption. 

 

I'd like to see FFG do some special 2v2 events during the year.

Sweet! This morning I was just thinking to myself, "I wonder if Ion Control will have another episode soon. I like listening to those guys."

I'll listen to this full of bitterness.

 

As usual, thanks for great material.

Recent bad news, maybe? :P

 

That aside, been a really lame summer so far. Friends always unavailable and family went out for a vacation trip, so I'm left home on guard duty. At least it's peaceful  lol

 

Back on topic though, the podcast is great so far and is cheering me up, so there goes the bitterness  > >. I will admit, however, that you really make me feel like throwing all my money at Imperial Assault, even though I must not. Way too expensive here, and between LCG expansions and The Witcher boardgame, I already burnt a lot of my money. Will be my next purchase, most likely, but must save first.

It has been working fine for me. I've been using the app "podcast addict" on android, and I'm subscribe to a few casts hosted on podbean with that app with no problems at all.
Do you know what app it wasn't working on for android?

The site seemed like the best option, we can't get a proper RSS feed hosting it here and soundcloud didn't seem too great for us.

Episode 5 is up :) http://ioncontrol.po...trol-episode-5/

In this episode we discuss some of the preparation we have been doing for upcoming store championships. We also talk about the current state of Rebels and what they might need to become more successful, and share some our deck ideas for the Scum and Villainy faction.

"Sometimes I get mad at myself for Twisting myself so good."

 

Loved that line! It's so true, too. I've felt that way before during solo games as well.

Episode 6! http://ioncontrol.po...trol-episode-6/
"In this episode Matt and Jonathan talk about the recent Store Championships they attended and we go over what decks they ran, and what they faced."

Next episode we will have 1 or 2 more store champs to cover and we plan to get into some topics about the Rogue Squadron Cycle.

Aussi has the Australian accent and I have the deeper voice (I've been told my voice is rather deep lol).

That's a good point though, we haven't introduced ourselves with our forums names since the first episode, next episodes I will make sure we introduce ourselves better.

O also, a good way to tell from the last episode is I'm the one who didn't have a store champs to talk about, aussi and toq did.

New episode! Episode 7

"In this episode Dan and Jonathan go over some FFG news out of GAMA, the last of their store championships, and dive into some discussion about the brand new force pack!"

 

Matt could not join us this week since his home on Hoth has been getting some extreme snow storms, so because we have even more we want to talk to about with him we will be doing another podcast later this week! and it may even contain some spoilers out of the second pack "Draw Their Fire" :rolleyes:.
