  1. FFG has really missed the boat on this. I know several people who are not interested at all in 1on1 tourny play, but do like flying X-Wing. I would not have invested so much in ships if I had not found HOTAC. Why FFG has ignored this gold mine is mystifying. While an app would be great to go with it, their performance with the 2.0 app makes me very leary of trying any other app of theirs.
  2. I just wish FFG had lived up to their promise and included the quick build cards in the conversion kits.
  3. I'm still waiting to see how I can get the Quick Build cards (that should have been in the conversion kits) without having to buy new copies of my existing ships. Also waiting for rules/conversions for my Epic ships. Also waiting to hear how I can buy more dials for all my 1.0 ships without having to buy another conversion kit to get cards I don't need and extra dials of the ships I only have a few of. Also still waiting on an App that isn't a total crock of $h*t. FFG is seriously trying my patience here.
  4. Cause Fantasy Flight specializes in writing rules that are terrible? If that was the case, then why not write it as Med/Large ships perform a standard barrel roll for their size?
  5. I would argue that. The decloak say to "barrel roll using the 1 template". Not to barrel roll using the medium/large ship rules. The small ship decloak is twice that of a barrel roll, why wouldn't the larger ships have twice the sideways movement?
  6. The Rebel kit has Evaan, Norra and Thane in an extra bag, but why did they put the same pilot on both sides of the cardboard? They could have put one of the unlimited pilots on the back.
  7. Wow. Dealbreaker number two here. I keep my phone fairly locked down and apps do not get ANY permissions unless I decide it needs it. A squad making app has no need for ANY permissions outside of updating itself when I allow.
  8. This is a deal breaker for me. If I can't use this offline, it is useless. Why? Two of the local convention locations have terrible phone access in the gaming hall. One of them you simply CANNOT get ANY signal inside. How can anyone attempt to run a tournament at any convention there? You will either have to have a printout of your list or use one of the many (and better) third-party apps.
  9. Bump. Is no one from Fantasy Flight watching this forum or do they just not have an answer? It would be nice to hear something from them, even if it is a "Not in the plans now".

Thanks Per the guide, it will take 18 packs of the Standard American (Green) to protect Descent and all the expansions. Descent 4 Well of Darkness 3 Altar of Despair 3 Road to Legend 5 Tomb of Ice 3 It may be less as they round up for each expansion.
  11. afilter said: Anyone give the new set a test run yet? I picked up a copy Friday, but had a busy weekend, so I did not get to play. Just went over the rules a bit last night. I did get my Val painted and have some P-40s and P-39s in production. What does everyone think so far? Aaron I had a chance to play a couple of games this weekend. Didn't try anything fancy as a bunch of newbie's were playing. 1st mission I took a pair of Val's and ran the length of the table while a P-39D and P-40F tried to bring me down and an A6M2 Reisen protected me. As i was the only one who had played before, I wanted something basic for me while they got to try it out. They picked up on it pretty quickly and started in. In the end, I managed to get one of the Val's off. The P-40 got one, but went down mostly due to the rear gunners fire. A damage isn't much, but taking 2 every turn (1 from each plane) adds up. After the first pass, the P-39 and my escort mixed it up. My only D draw was a 5. The slow speed of the I deck and few turns, (the deck is only 15 cards, 5 of them altitude) makes for limited choices in movement. The others were just generic dogfights with some of the new planes and decks. I like the new decks as you have some variety available now. i am looking forward to trying some divebomb missions.
  12. Groovin said: Will there be discounts for bulk orders? To protect ALL of my FFG games (plus a couple others which happen to use "standard american" format cards) I'm looking at an expenditure well in excess of $200.00 (excluding shipping). The projected prices already seem a bit high for packs of only 50 sleeves. You are not alone. Just myself with Fantasy Flight games alone I am over $100.00. Add in the other games in my collection and I easily double, more like triple that total. Then add in my gaming group. Just the ones I play with on a normal basis would get us to $500.00 to protect the games we play with on a normal basis our collections. Rather than a discount on bulk, how about just offering a larger pack size? For those of us with large collections, I could see myself ordering a box of a thousand sleeves easily. My Wings of War sets alone would use that many. That would save on packaging and hopefully allow a lower per sleeve cost to the players. I like that these are good quality sleeves and should wear well, but if the cost is too high, I can't afford to use them on all my games.
