So, the OP is the logo from an event FFG ran 2 months ago, a very generic logo from the universe and a few pictures taken from a SW computer game.

I ask again, what is the purpose of this thread?

http://www.fantasyfl...s.asp?eidn=4012

Actually the event was a YEAR and two months ago. I attended and had a blast, and was disappointed there was not another one in 2014.

 

But yes, wondering what the thread is about.  I have heard some rumors too, but ???

I know somebody too, but the hint was not that specific. On the other hand, it's not outside the realm of possibility.  GenCon could prove to be interesting...

All of those ships sound like somebody named them by smashing their keyboard with their face.

 

Face, or other body part.

 

I dunno.... It really looks like face-typing, Just like WonderWAAAGH said.

 

 

I hope they don't make a 3rd faction..

More imperial ships? Yes please

 

Yes, I support the third faction movement.

However, I don't think you can reasonably root for a third faction and for more Imperial ships at the same time.

Honestly none of the SW:Galaxies contributions excited me design-wise. None of the Hutt/Black sun fighters seemed that impressive and the Imperial TIEs are at best, a joke. How many ways can you hack up a TIE Advanced and add other parts on it from kits that aren't even from Star Wars?

 

I suppose the Kiraxz is kind of neat, but change the name please.

 

Until I see some concrete evidence from FFG pointing to a third faction, I'm gonna remain skeptical. I'd still like to see more imperial/rebel craft over some strange third-party contributions. My hope is on a space platform and/or campaign kit to equal the CR90.

What's wrong with dividing the good and the bad? Why do we need a third faction, instead of something like expansions with dual-faction bases (Empire generic/ace, rebel generic/ace). Really, Fett (and Solo?) establish FFG's stance on "independents".

 

Besides I'd rather FFG didn't divert attention to some third party that may not be interesting when it's actually implemented. I'd rather keep to two of each wave instead of diverting. That way we'd get to the awesome fighters (like the Gunboat, Avenger) much quicker. As cool as it would be to have six ships in each wave, dropping wave 5 down to 2 ships is kinda concerning that 6 ships per wave just can't be done. And again, would rather see more rebels and Imperials than pirates.

It's the internet, the only place where purpose is counterproductive. :)

 

in answer to your question: 42 (the only answer that makes always sense)

Well eventually they will run out of imp and rebel ships to release which gives two options add more factions or add prequel ships, and I'd much rather have more factions than prequel ships.

Kihraxz, Rihkxyrk and Dunelizard. All of those ships first came out in Star Wars Galaxies for the Freelance Faction. You are missing the Scyk, seen on the Intimidate upgrade card coming with the VT-49.

 

I know I could of posted ten other ships like Houndstooth and other Hutt stuff.

I was just getting us going, rather than doing a complete list of what we may see.

I have no idea what this thread us supposed to be saying.

I am saying that WHEN THE BLACK SUN FACTION IS RELEASED, I hope the three ships pictured in my initial post are included in that wave, because I like them very much....

 

Clear now?

I think I may be the reason this thread started.

http://community.fan...ling-it/page-13

What I wrote on post #246. It wasn't concerning a new faction, per se, just in talks of the (possible) upcoming Imperial epic ship.

At least I assume that's what this is from, considering Joe's response on that thread and then 15 minutes later starting this one.

 

 

Yeah I have been hearing stuff for a while, and meaning to make a little posting. You kind of kicked me into doing it in a flash of fun inspiration with your posting.

:)

Yeah the old fart brigade refuses to see the future. They want to stay in the 70's and 80's.

 

We know our Cannon they say... yet they will happily have rebels fighting rebels like that is normal and good solid cannon, rather than have a third wonderful faction.

 

For me and others it is so much inspiration for mirth at their stupid noggin expense.

<_<

 

Left to these schmucks this wonderful game would fizzle because they would  keep it as a silly little WWII game with ten ships tops, because that is what they remember from thirty years ago.

:rolleyes:

 

Oh well... what can you do for 'em?

 

Nuttin... nuttin at all.
