  1. Perhaps you should re-read the threads to which I was replying. I never stated that X-Wing 1.0, 2.0, etc. wasn't a good game. I said the app was extremely poorly designed, with little to no testing. After all, what kind of testing could exist with all of the problems the app has. That was all I was trying to state. And I CAN state that without playing the game. Now, it is entirely possible that I was not clear enough in my posts to make my point clear. That happens when you are 77 years old and heavily medicated. I will attempt to be clearer in the future. Edit: Here was my original response: I don't play the game, but have a massive collection. I have been here since the beginning. And I can't agree more to the statement above. "Disappointed" would be a weak adjective to describe my feelings if I actively played. They have had more than a year to get this app reasonably functional. What they have delivered is a joke. And that is me being polite about it. There is no defense for this. This is especially true considering the fact that playing 2.0 is MOSTLY wrapped around using this app. Now we have poor app testing to go along with poor play testing. This does not place FFG in a very good light. As you can see, my comments were directed at the app, not the game.
  2. I don't have to actually play the game to recognize poor design when it comes to ships, actions, cards, etc. Just like you wouldn't have to drive a car running on rims alone to know that it would be a poor, ineffective design. All it ever takes is an understanding of the game, how it is played, the mechanics, the rules, etc. This is the PRECISE reason why people on this forum can recognize poor design from teased and/or leaked info, way before it ever makes the tables.

    I created a new entry under Community Tools & Game Aids. I provided a link to the D2e Custom Hero Creator site. This is a web based page which allows you to create official looking custom hero cards.

    X-Wing completists: will you buy everything?

    My completionist self was happy when 2.0 was announced. I never actually played the game, but spent about $4K collecting 1.0. The minis are beautiful and have received much enjoyment from them. I now have the perfect excuse to end my affiliation with the game. I do intend on staying abreast of the game and this forum, but will not buy anything for 2.0.

  7. As the creator of the original X-Wing Inventory spreadsheet, I thought I would say nice job. Also, be aware that going down the road of allowing piece meal modifications (adding individual pieces due to trades, etc.) ends up generating one **** of lot of work for you. I could find no way to automate the process per se. Not saying you shouldn't do it, just saying that it creates a nightmare of management for you.

  10. I am currently working with Sadgit on some Gloomhaven tools. As a result, I believe he is traveling on vacation for 3 weeks. I don't think he will return until sometime around August 14th. I am pretty sure he mentioned that he will be going places with little to no wi-fi. So, I recommend you be patient. I am sure he will respond when he gets back.

    Your favorite bad joke

    The really bad joke is the fact that there is an X-Wing Off-Topic sub-forum. Don't know why, as it is never seems to be used when appropriate ... 😝

    TIE Advanced article up!

    This is a common theme across ALL FFG games ... FFG desperately needs to hire competent, professional writers and proof readers so that all of their text within rules, faqs, cards, etc. are all consistent. After all these years, why is it so difficult for them to understand this, and execute on it?

    Store Championship canceled... what to do?

    I have enjoyed this thread, and the opposing view points expressed. It has been thought provoking. This, (see the quote above) in my opinion, has been the best post in this thread to date. I instantly got this full color image in my mind of 25 X-Wingers all playing in a library setting ... with the prototypical old-marm-buttoned-up-laced-librarian from the Little House on the Prairie shooooshing all of the players every two seconds, while a TO is trying to contain a brewing argument over some over-hashed picayune interaction between several stupidly-designed never-properly-playtested upgrade cards. I have been laughing for 15 minutes. Thank you. I was having a tough morning. This improved my day immensely.
  15. ^--- Nice post. It is important to remember that FFG (Asmodee) is a business, and their focus is to make money. As a result, I agree that any potential future version of Descent will focus on those areas that they feel will provide the greatest return on investment. And that most certainly will be with a strong leaning to co-op style play. It's unfortunate from my perspective, but it's foolish to tilt at reality. Of course, I also believe that any potential D3e is a long way off. Given point one above, I think they are far more focused right now on milking their Disney Star Wars License dry ...
