    Lolol, I feel like there was a missed opportunity here to have a Snoop Dogg parody of Gin and Juice.

    Great episode! By far one of my favorites. Jim is a genius with that 5 point sideboard.

    OUTSTANDING EPISODE. This is that ish we want, Pablo.

    Juice is an amazing player and I’m so happy he almost went the distance with GSC. Also glad both of these guys had such a great and NON CONTROVERSIAL top game at one of the biggest tournies out there.

    Now this is an incredible show! The sportsmanship on display between these two gents at the top table was exemplary. Juice is completely correct when he talks about the game as a whole being bigger than any one game of 40k, even the final of Adepticon.

    Having the top two from such a huge event on the same podcast, talking about their experiences and breaking down the key tactical and mechanical points of their final is just top quality material. Well done to all involved and I really hope to see more episodes like this in the future.

    Great episode. Informative, in-depth and entertaining. Bringing tournament finalists to CT should be a regular ocurrence whenever possible.

    Speaking of Adepticon, any thoughts on the meta there? I’ve heard quite a few people say that the lack of Castellans in it is proof they’re undeserving of nerfs and the meta’s moved on, and I did find it weird how much it diverged from the LVO meta when not so many releases have happened since then.

    Can’t get over Pablo’s pronounciation of Genestealer Cult – “Genecircle”.

    This episode was amazing. Beyond these two gents being incredible people, the dynamic of having both of the people involved in the final on the episode took things to a whole new level! Anytime this can happen I would love it to happen!
