Episode 17 - ISC Mid Comp Review
May 29 2019 40 mins  
Its another comp-related episode and this time Cozened Indigo is taking a look at the Inner Sphere Coalition a 6v6 , inner sphere only tournament, where teams play 5 drops against each other, with a tonnage limit of 325 tonnes. There are 33 teams battling each other in a Swiss style format and we are currently 3 rounds in to the tournament.  Which is the perfect time to have a look at how those teams are going, what pilots are shining under the light of competition and what mechs we are seeing used. Its also the perfect time to consider the key takeaways from this competition and what they might mean for MWOWC 19 and comp in general. We are also planning on doing a post-competition review of the tournament, so some of the aspects, such as the structure, the format, the maps and strats etc, we’ll leave until after its wrapped up. Hopefully we’ll be joined by Notbob and Calon again and they can reflect on some of those things from the perspective of the tournament organizers.   Also a note that all the information and numbers that are used in today's episode are available via the ISC Stat Pack, which is a tool for everyone to use to check out the performance of the teams during the tournament, so if that interests you, check out the following link: https://1drv.ms/x/s!ApD6nx4vgaFDe0t9HVCbcp-22O8 As always, a BIG thank you to our patrons, Live1991, Dan N, Jondoeiowa, BrioS, Shaky Snake, Chilgapsan and Jacob Sawyer - your support helps us produce this content.   Remember it’s all about conversation, so keep talking and keep listening and be sure to provide your feedback and comments to us below, or one of the other platforms:        Twitter - https://www.twitter.com/IncomingP       If you enjoy our content, please consider sponsoring us through Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/user?u=12567635 


























Episode 13 - The LRM Debate
Mar 17 2019 64 mins  
REEEEEEEEE!!! Well Mechfans, you can't have a podcast called Incoming Missile and not tackle the debate around Long Range Missiles. That's right, in Episode 13 (unlucky for some), Capn Cat and Cozened Indigo are weighing in on the LRM debate. Now in typical IMP fashion, we're trying to tackle the issue in a way that considers both sides of the conversation, so firstly we equip our ECM and we talk about why LRMs are so widely hated. We then flip to 'Disrupt' and brave LRMargeddon to discuss why LRMs might not be as big a problem as they are made out to be. Lastly, we talk about the changes PGI are planning to make to (and around) the weapon system in the March 2019 patch and what impacts they might have. So whether you're a LRM-hater like Capn Cat, or a LRM-apologist like Cozened Indigo, we think there'll be something for you in this episode. And remember, this is the start of the conversation on LRMs, not the end, so be sure to provide us your thoughts and feedback on this controversial topic! We'll collate your opinions and do a second episode to discuss, post the March 2019 changes. As always, a BIG thank you to our patrons, Jon, BrioS, Shaky Snake and Jacob Sawyer - your support helps us produce this content.

Welcome to Incoming Missile Podcasts eighth episode, the second in our two-part series where your hosts Capn Cat and Cozened Indigo recap Mech_Con 2018.
