FTN Episode 367 – Do You Make Decisions In A Vacuum? How To Avoid It

FTN small square

Sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know and there is nothing we can do about that… Or is there?  We go through a thought exercise about falling back on what we do know to help us dig ourselves out of tight situations.  Later in the show we talk about the timeline retcon happening at the Black Library.

Hey all,

We kick the show off talking about the Las Vegas nOpen. This is an amazing project undertaken by some dedicated broadcasters and streamers. This is going to be an absolute blast. Please check out the website and mark your calendars.

Please get some Merch if you  can! You can grab a t-shirt and other goodies at the link here. If you order yours by Jan 15th you can have it in time for the event! We’ll have raffles and stuff coming too and as special giveaways for people that use the #lvno leading up to and during the broadcast. There are ton of amazing people partnered to make this happen. Please join us if you can.

We  speak a little about decision making in this show.  With the volumes of information you’re expected to just ‘know’ when playing 40k at a competitive level can you ever know it all?  Probably not but that shouldn’t be a daunting thing.  You’ve likely amassed enough information to be just fine.  Realizing it’s time to use it and how to apply it is the real trick.

We believe that an information vacuum is more of a perception issue than a reality. Are we right?  How close did we get on this subject?

At the back of the show we talk about the time line unskip at the Black Library.  This is interesting because we haven’t seen this sort of thing at BL before. so why are we seeing it now?   Ultimately its a low impact change but it might be the tip of the iceberg for something cool yet to come.  I’m crossing my fingers.

For anyone who has read this far down we’ve recorded the first video with myself and Oscar Lars where we review a listener submitted model. It should be produced and ready to go mid November. Please keep checking back and if you have a model you’d like us to review for how it would stack up vs the Battle Ready standard and the Artists Standard, hit us up in a private message with a pic. This is coming soon- I promise!

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.
