    McCaber reacted to KCDodger in U-Wing VS. TIE Reaper: Why do they have the wrong bases?   
    No seriously hear me out. I get making the U-Wing a large base, they're not exactly difficult to shoot down and those wings are definitely a thing that need to be considered. On top of that, it's a transport. I get it.

    But why does the much, much larger TIE Reaper have a small base?

    It's larger, it can carry sodding palpatine, and it's agile as ****. It even has a better attack value! What's with this thing? This is about as confusing as it gets for this game if you ask me. They really ought to have opposite bases.

    One thing the designer suggested about your first point is to have collective group XP that gets evenly split among everyone. This also cuts down on people angling to get the killshot away from the person who did most of the work.

    Good news, everyone!
    Please check the updated version of Squad Benchmark here:
    https://baranidlo.github.io/bench
    Currently included are all the ship and pilot data up to Wave 13.
    However most of the cards and effects are not implemented yet, with the exception of Advanced Optics, StarViper Mk. II and Thweek's Shadowed condition.
    I will be adding more content continuously, depending on what time permits.
    If you find any bug or error in the existing functionality, please report here:
    https://github.com/baranidlo/bench/issues
    Have fun!

    McCaber reacted to Brunas in Alternative Play Format: Objectives for X-Wing   
    We proudly present to the X-wing community a new alternative format for the game we all love:

    X-wing Objectives
    In 2012 Fantasy Flight Games created the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game. Its strong and unique mechanics coupled with the power of childhood nostalgia has made it one the most popular miniatures game in the world. However, after 5 years and over 12 Waves worth of ships, the “Standard” competitive format has begun to show some weaknesses. The primary win condition for years was to destroy all of your opponent’s ships, but now with so many cards and combinations available there are more win conditions that make the game less enjoyable. These include having a single, expensive, and unkillable ship win when time is up or staying in your corner the entire game and winning on a Final Salvo tie breaker.

    The X-Wing Objective Format was created by a large number of members from the X-Wing Community in a massive collaborative effort. Months of testing went into creating six objectives that have alternative win conditions. The hope was to eliminate some of the negative play experiences and get us back to the kinds of dogfights that leave us cheering and excited.  We also sought out to create a format that would not only appeal to casual players but also be viable as a tournament format.

    Please download & print all the materials as needed and enjoy this new format. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.


    Enjoy!

    You can view all the objectives in an imgur album here: https://imgur.com/a/Ox7T9, or you can see the splash page for everything at http://nationaltabletopgaming.org/tournament-resources.
    If you're just looking for the printable version of everything, the link is on the site or just here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/clott5ozs0upf6f/AAA3E7lrpB8-CJAq6f1AiOWea?dl=0 

    To learn more about X-wing Objectives listen to the “Intro to Objectives” episode on the Carolina Krayts, Gold Squadron, or Mynock Squadron Podcasts.
    Video Tutorials will be made available on the Gold Squadron Podcast Youtube Channel soon™
    Lastly, if you're running or participating in a tournament with this format, you'll want to use the rules here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17egf6ZX0CEyJjyyKaPvL9ukLVXkYJ1RIt85iFF9F-EM.  The short story is that you can run it as an Imperial Assault tournament in Tome or Cryodex, and you should be fine!
    Here's an example page, if you want to save a click:

     
     
    ALSO: Please note Trajectory Simulator should be on the banned card list.  We're getting the updated version ready soon, but it takes time to reformat everything!

    You ALMOST had it.
    You have 2 bombs with munitions tokens. Minefield mapper triggers.
    You"discard" bomb 1, spending a munition token.
    you "discard" bomb 2, spending a munition token.
    You have now used the Minefield Map on all your bombs.
    You still have 2 bombs equipped.

    McCaber reacted to TheHumanHydra in Kylo Rens new Tie Fighter   
    I too have scried upon the black and sheening glass of the future. My vision was obscure. I saw not that baleful lambency of the Light, nor the welling shadow of the Dark, but a muted, putrid umber colour ... like Scum on a pond that is mouldering. At first I feared, then flashed with anger: what was this murk that imposed itself upon the ancient, treasured feud of Light and Dark? As I focused my hate upon this sight, it shattered in wreaths of flame. The vistas of the manifold future were laid bare to me again.
    I saw a craft, sleek in figure and blazing at its aft with a radiance of dread impulse. Three tongues of liquid green it spat from its maw; thrice it evaded the lancing fires of its enemies; and thrice it withstood their blows: once with a crackling of shield aegis. I heard the voice of that great weaver of the threads of Darkness, resounding from the chasm of his star-weapon as he fell and the Dark flowed through him: 'You will train a warrior to avenge my demise; he will slay the regicides and the scum. In him must combine the fanatic abandon of my servant, Jax, and the fell tenacity of the leader of Omega Squadron. You will call him Rho Leader. His power of terror shall permit his foes no focus when attacking him or defending against his attacks. He shall attain the ninth level of piloting skill, and make use of the forbidden technology to supplement his elite talent. He will hunt down and eliminate this Last of the Jedi.'
    I shuddered with the bliss and creeping terror of the Dark I adore.
