    If you had that editor position filled they could have fixed the last few seconds (I love bloopers though)

    Glad you even brought up the coronavirus as a topic. It has become a taboo subject in some areas

    Like Pablo I have young children and it really makes the mind spin about what could go wrong.

    My CA community recently had its first confirmed cases and I’m debating whether I should still attend an RTT this weekend.

    How do all you tournament organizers prepare for something like this? Do you have event insurance or will this be disastrous for people if people stop showing up?

      Lol, yeah, you hear us shutting it down, haha. Missed that.

      Yeah, we’ll have to see how the whole Corona Virus thing plays out. It’s still not entirely clear if it is more lethal than the regular flu for a healthy adult. It seems to be less so but more dangerous for the elderly or those with respiratory issues. Again though, I am no doctor so take what I say with a grain of salt. I think the hype about it is scarier for most people than the actual disease will end up being for their lives in reality but who knows? Have to just wait and see.

    I don’t mind the commercial, lots of podcast have them, but please, please, please see if you can do something to have the sound level of the podcast and the commercial be closer. I’ve had my ears blasted on both this episode of SFTFL and the last Chapter Tactics when the commercial came on.

    • Reecius March 5, 2020 2:44 pm #

      Thanks for letting us know, we will look into that.

    Psychic Awakening helped underpowered factions? Lol

    It did quite literally nothing for Ynnari, now easily the weakest faction by a good margin since Grey Knights moved up in the world.

    Hell, even now that the kits are released separately, there’s still now legal way to play the Banshees built with their masks off, which was supposedly the Ynnari-version of the kit (that somehow never got rules).

    Portland, Victoria was correct for that event. Victoria is a state of Australia.
    I will forgive you though as there are only two states to be in: South Australia and drunk.
