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?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

 

Personally I think the light blacksun fighter looks an awful lot like an E-wing with some extra stuff in that diagonal looking shot from the top, and even the top down

 

The medium Hutt ship doesn't look terrible but it almost reminds me of an A-9 Vigilance

Yeah that is one of the things that I love about these, they are STAR WARS ships.

I'm all for a third faction. I'm all for four factions.

 

The Rihkxyrk-class and Kihraxz-class are pretty sweet.

 

There could be a hint of the Black Sun in one of the expansion packs. The disabled ships of Mission 6 are AEG-77 Vigos, another nice ship.

 

I'd like to see the:

 

Kihraxz-class (small ship: light attack/swarm)

AEG-Vigo (large ship: 360°)

Nimbus-class (small ship: general purpose)

Conqueror-class (large ship)

StarViper-class (small ship)

Supa Fighter ship (small ship: tank)

Supa Fighter ship


It's not a comment on your choices, but apparently there really is something called a "Supa Fighter". Every time I think the EU can't surprise me with something dumb, it scrapes something new up from the bottom of the barrel...

I am an EU fan, but I have to admit, Supa Fighter sounds like something flown by a 40k Ork

In actuality it should treat all hard right turns as greens and all hard lefts as reds (or be incapable of making hard left turns) - the Camel's rotary engine gave it a strong right-turn bias, not left.

 

This has been your Annoyingly Nitpicky Historical Lesson of the Day. Enjoy!

 

PS - any Wings of Glory players here?

So Black Sun is the obvious option for a new faction, not that I know personally, but I'm curious does the Star Wars universe contain enough to create a faction for the Chiss?  Because I would love that!

 

(Even though the Chiss don't technically exist anymore  :( )

I think the Clawcraft is their only "major" fighter we are aware of.

 

(And technically they exist until Disney says otherwise, alot of people missed that clarification in all of the EU is dead QQ)

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.

 

If you boil it down to simple math, there's a pretty indisputable reason for introducing a third faction.

 

Two factions = fewer total ships/options, you'll get all possible Imp/Reb ships eventually

Three+ factions = more total ships/options, you'll still get all possible Imp/Reb ships eventually

Well, the Empire and Rebellion started with two ships each and will (once Wave 5 is released) have nine. Assume, for the sake of argument, that a new faction needs at least half that many to be viable; rounding down leaves us at four, meaning a hypothetical Chiss faction would be in about the same place the two original factions were at the release of Wave 2.

So are there four Chiss ships? I'm not very well versed in that corner of the EU either.

Simple math? Indisputable? Really?

 

More isn't always better.

Much clearer and you really should have said that in the OP instead of 50 posts and a day later. When you first posted the thread the original post came across like you were claiming "yeah!!! FFG have announced they are doing a black sun faction, here are some pics of the first ships they are going to do!!!", except you didn't actually SAY anything, you just left it for the readers to guess what those pictures were meant to indicate.

Sorry about that misunderstanding buddie.

:)

 

I do think that our FFG boys are doing a Black Sun Faction. As do others here.

What they will actually release is a much less certain prospect.

FFG has proven they are willing to make anything that is Original Trilogy, and directly related such as Rouge Squadron and Video Game ships.

That's pretty faulty logic.

First it assumes that FFG can't simply make up new ships for Reb's and Imps.
Also it assumes there will be no new canon ships, which we all know is untrue what with Rebellion coming out this fall.

So no your "math" is far from indisputable, and to be honest isn't really even math, because math doesn't say More = Better only that More = More.

I would rather it was a generic "fringe" faction, or even just "unaligned" so it can cover ships from minor powers. But if they do give it a specific identity, yeah, black sun is the only option.
