To be fair, I think you started the swarm conversation in the thread. (below)
Then @GreenDragoon provides a bunch of data and it looks, to me, like you (and others) summarily dismiss it, maintaining the "people just don't like swarms" mantra. No one said that, that's how I inferred it. That's how I read the gameplay preferences stuff.
Speaking of gameplay preferences stuff, the whole Hyperspace vs. Extended preference stuff has been really dumb and does nothing but create more opportunities for us (collectively) to be pissy with each other. Don't like Extended? Okay, don't play extended stuff, don't bother commenting on Extended meta, don't dismiss Extended meta and events with talking about the merits of Hyperspace and why it's better. Visa versa for Extended enthusiasts. No one is forcing us to play any format.
I think a lot of us are disappointed that this thread has devolved, but all of us should take some ownership of their role in why that happened. I know I've been snippy and take particularly umbrage when I infer people are being passive aggressive with dismissive or condescending comments. It may not be intended that way, and instead of taking a breath and trying to talk through it, I lash out. I kind of did it above. I'm not trying to attack you, @Boom Owl. You're just a guy who's posts I used to get excited to see, every time, and things have changed. I don't know if it's me or you or both. Doesn't have to be that way and I'm trying to get better.
Pretty much all things Poe, and always with BB-8 because there's nothing to play for, so might as well have fun. And it might actually be good. (R2-D2 might be, too) Overdrive Thrusters absolutely has done what I wanted, which is make him the ace he deserves (in my head canon) to be. I don't win every game, but I win most and he feels fantastic. I'm not sure on the wingmates, but it's probably either Rey or +2, with one of those +2 being an A-Wing (with a Procket or being L'ulo).
