    Fly Casual X-Wing Simulator

    I absolutely love the Fly Casual Simulator. I use it often to try out builds. I'm not sure if this has been addressed. I have noticed that you cannot adjust the position of completed Talon Rolls. It's always ends in the center position. Keep up the great work on this awesome app.

    Hyperspace Rebels

    I flew this list to a win last Wednesday during league play at my LFGS. I may need to tweak it to be better at more formidable opponents in the future.

    Squad Builder: Feature wishlist

    I would love to see a "copy ship" feature for those "Crack Dealers" that seem to be prevalent in 2.0. The icon I thought to be a copy ship button was just to enlarge the card.

    A New Era Begins... FFG Website Squad Builder Online!

    Has anyone else noticed that some pilot lists are not complete, as well as the upgrades available?

    Yo FFG! Where’s the app at?!

    My guess is that the app will release sometime in the morning, if not the early afternoon. Remember that Minnesota is in the Central Time Zone, so add an hour if you're in the Eastern Time Zone.

    Happy Friday before Gencon

    I can't wait! I'll be in the final X-wing North American Championship tournament for 1.0. I am so excited for the X-wing 2.0 pre-release.

    SW The Clone Wars is coming back

    THE CLONE WARS (revival) will be on the new Disney streaming service. That said, if I was on the fence about getting the Disney streaming service, I am not anymore.

    Bringing more Legends pilots into X-Wing 2.0

    I'd like to see the rest of the Azzameen family.

    Playing X-Wing sitting down

    @RockSoldierWhen I'm playing X-wing, I have no choice but to sit. I'm in a wheelchair. The only problem I have is judging maneuvers that are on the other side of the board. My opponents are willing to assist me with moving the ships I cannot reach, and I am grateful for that. When it comes to tournaments I play in, TOs understand my situation, and we have agreed that I am allowed to be "static" -- staying at one table throughout the tournament, having my opponents come to me. Even when I play in the North American Championship tournament during GenCon, I just look out for the devs, Alex Davy or Frank Brooks to let them know of my situation. They are more than willing to assist.

    I like the idea of missile pods. It's in the same vein as those used on the AH-64 Apache. A Missile Upgrade with a built-in Extra Munitions, but both missiles are fired in a single attack.

    I like my personalized X-wing templates from Litko. These, I had them make to represent the Star Wars gaming group out of Indianapolis, IN. I also ordered a set of tokens a couple of weeks ago. http://www.litko.net/categories.php?category=Supported-Board-Games/Star-Wars-X-Wing

    The HWK-290 needs a nerf.

    I like my HWK-290 the way she is. Thank you very much. She may not look like much -- No Koiogran Turn. But I've used it quite effectively -- specifically Jan Ors.

    How Do You Play X-Wing?

    When I can get away, I play standard 100/6 matches at my favorite game store. I play in tournaments at game shops locally, around my home. As for what I choose to fly, you could say I'm not set to one faction. To keep sharp, I practice on the X-wing Squadron Benchmark web app.

    X-Wing 2nd Edition Leaked?

    Nice try, Crabbok. To quote "Ben" Kenobi, "Who's the more foolish . . . the fool, or the fool who follows him?"
