The Semifinals are OVER and we now know three of the players that will be in the Championship game of our tournament! This episode details the stories of each of their victories and some analysis of the games all of these top contenders played. Afterwards, a brief errata about our Knockout Map Analysis, which includes details on our Five-Player Drafting Method. Stick around to the end as well for some fun business about a mouse...

The Semifinals for the tournament aren’t even over yet, but we may not have a better opportunity to do some in depth analysis of the Knockout round map.

Today we celebrate with SCPT’s first Space Kitty. JattaPake made a name for himself in the community early on and he continues to be one of the funniest and kindest people out there. For his Space Kitty episode, we all decided to break down an hold forum post of his called The Metagame List. It’s a list that covers all of the behaviors that one might see above the table and outside of standard tactics. It’s a hilarious conversation and is followed up by some quick errata for last week’s episode about the Semifinals map.

Dear Listener!

If you're listening to episode 072 on the day of release, you may have noticed some odd audio errors. This was an undetected issue that has finally been found and fixed. In order to hear the episode with corrected audio, it may be necessary to delete the episode from your device, unsubscribe from SCPT, then RESUBSCRIBE and re-download the episode. It wouldn't hurt to restart your app in between unsubscribing and resubscribing as well.

Apologies for this inconvenience. We always seek to maintain high quality in our episodes and Matt was a bad boy who tried to rush the edit job early Tuesday morning.

The Prelims are over! 18 games on one map in 7 weeks, and we’re finally ready to move on. Today, we cover the last five games as well as an overview of the statistics of the Prelims overall! After breaking down our thoughts, we go IN DEPTH on the new map for the second round of the tournament. It’s a very different kind of map than the Prelims map and expects a lot more out of its players.

We seem to be in an alternating pattern, with the large volume of tournament games necessitating another update-filled episode. This week, details of games 8-13 are all scrunched together, hopefully offering more insight in what seems to lead to the most success in our tournament structure. After the breakdowns is errata from last weeks Action Cards ranking!

It’s Galactic Council Week! This time, we’re dipping our toes into the pesky action cards, and there’s no way we can contain it all in one episode. So instead we’ve already decided this will be a two parter! But before we can even get to action cards, we have THREE Patreon Tournament Games to overview. Strap in, because this is a long one.

This week is our inaugural SPACE KITTY episode. As part of our highest Patreon tier, we allow contributors to produce an episode with us! This week, longtime contributor InMacKWeTrust joins us to talk about the evil maps he has inflicted upon us, as well as a discussion about why we make weird maps and why we diverted from the original map making process altogether. Before that discussion kicks off, there is a lengthy piece about Game Two of our patreon tournament, and after the episode is a quick errata about Game One of the tournament.
