So, uh… yeah. With the announcement of 2.0 literally hours after we recorded this episode, it seems a little moot – but, since the Reaper and Saw’s Renegades will have 2.0 content, and it seems like the cards in the Renegades box somewhat model what 2.0 X-Wings will be it’s still relevant! I promise! I hope…

On this episode of Back to Dials: 

  • An unfortunate timing whoopsie
  • Optimizing Optimized Prototype
  • X-Wings are super cool again!
