  1. It looks exactly like BB8 color scheme so i think you might be correct that it is in fact his favorite color scheme. Expectation of subverted expectations subverted
  2. apologies. It was the pdfs that I was thinking about, not the app I'm sure they'll update the pdf soon.
  3. Not sure if you want the literal cards but I thought all the quick build "cards" were available in the xwing mobile app for free? The first wave definitely was. Have they not kept that up to date or something?
  4. Yeah much bigger scale than xwing but OP said side game so i think something like this exact concept where you build a pod racer and plug it into the controller to race in an actual game would CRUSH in sales. Could even build in cool stuff like swapping in parts mid race in order to repair damage or change the config if the track changes or temperature changes.
  5. I am very happy to see this being added! I am "demoing" the game for friends this weekend and now things just got real.
  6. not worried about being "judged." What i meant was i've seen people say not to worry about lack of quick build cards cause you can always "net list" but its been my experience that for pick up games for my wife (who's the only person i know who plays xwing less than me) they are too gimmicky and complicated and often min/max using several expansions i don't have or don't have in quantities to play (can proxy the cards but proxying the ships themselves feels very "whats the point of this?") so having official quick build cards is very appealing to me.
  7. Same. And i do understand the net deck = quick build argument but every time i see someone share a list it always feel like they are steeped in whatever the meta is (or finding the most OP combination of cards possible for those ships). I don't want all that. I dont need a squad that can play at worlds. I just need something easy to understand and fun for my wife and I to pick up and play a game with. Gimmicks are fine but its gotta be something that a less experienced player can execute on.

    quick build cards

    That's kind of funny. Thought i saw Luke on there but yeah, no core set cards. I wonder what the deal is with that.

    quick build cards

    That is awesome info, thank you. I guess we'll have to see if they will keep these files updated as they release additional expansions. Feels like a yes since they clearly added more than just what's in the core set. At least now i have a large enough sample size to kind of guesstimate how much threat to assign a gunboat or reaper for escallation. There has to be some correlation here between ship points and EPT etc and the threat value.

    quick build cards

    I'm somewhat of a lapsed 1.0 player but i was very excited about the concept of the quick build cards in 2.0. I don't often get to make it to store events and one of the reasons my wife and i don't play much is that it takes as long to pick out a squad and all the cards as it does to play the match. Plus, every time i buy a new ship it gets more difficult to keep up with what all the choices are, even when i've gone way overboard and put everything in binders to make going through them easier. Enter quick build cards. Seemed like a good way to jump into a game (especially with the app to help prepare the items we needed) but in practice, i only have a handful of choices after buying a core set, y-wing, and imp/rebel conversion. I suppose it was too much to hope to get at least 1 card per expansion in the conversion kit but I don't even think i can technically play a full escalation game on the imperial side with what i have (not only lacking quick builds but i might be the only guy who owns less than 5 tie fighters because my other half loves the 'sexy' side of the empire - advanced, defenders, gunboats, etc). I understand they need to make money but am i going to be stuck buying one each of every expansion just to get the cards? The app info seemed to imply that info would be in there as well but not sure if it got dropped or if it's coming at a later time or what. Do we have any ideas on where they are at with that and what their plans are for future quick build cards? has anyone cracked the code of the threat formula they are using?

    I was really hoping that the app would have all kinds of quick build "cards" in there to make it easier for us to slam a few squads together. It's nice to be able to easily pick pilots and stuff but combing through 100 upgrades digitally isnt a whole lot easier than doing it from the actual cards. Do you guys think that we will get this option in future updates or is the only source of the quick build guards going to be new expansion packs?
  12. Really love that shield gate mat. If you had told me we'd be 2 years out from Rogue one, heading into V2 and still no official shield gate mat from FFG, i would have not believed you.
  13. 100% agree that it would be very weird to have a second core set already. At most I could see a most wanted pack with the 3 ships that were in the core and none of the templates etc but with the need for conversion kits anyway I don't see how it'd make any sense. Probably just going to be a expansion pack wave
  14. I definitely like the idea of "quests" that earn you points but as you said, it would be hard to construct them in a way that the points weren't just gimmes or unbalanced. I think you'd have to make them random draw and cap the value at a low level.
