  1. And that's why the game has been ruined by the cancer that is 2.0. Children on forums like this one.
  2. Let me fix the title for you: "2-0 is an abomination that no one wanted." FFG help mess up the game, but only for the tournament players they bow down to. In order to apparently fix it for these tournament players (casual players simply don't use elements they don't like) FFG decide to throw cool ships, upgrades, pilots, rules and veteran players under the bus, so that Tournament players can have a nice 'meta'... (until they smash it apart down the road and FFG decide to do this all again). No one in their right mind ditches a load of gaming stuff they paid good money for, in order to spend $100+ on a load of cardboard and rules that drain every scrap of fun from the game. I'd rather buy into the upcoming BSG game LOL.. in fact even Attack wing is looking interesting to me. Why should I be penalised and have to pay out, because tournament players like to bleat about how they broke 1.0 with their combos and now they need an adult to fix things for them with 2.0. Really?
  3. Once players see how awful the 2.0 rules are and how everything is nerfed to **** and back, I'm sure there will be more than a few who don't mind playing 1.0. Others will head to 1.0 players to see how much fun they can have with proper Dash and PTL. Granted this will depend on the main player having a good selection of ships, but I think the game will continue, just not in the FLGS. In fact FLGS play will be hit hard, as all the veteran fans are kicked to the kerb, Eventually it will recover, but expect to see a massive drop in players for about 6 -12 months, then as new players come in the old vets will be forgotten. Same thing happened with MTG many years ago. FFG take a financial hit for a while, but ultimately get the money back from new players... Then they will eventually repeat the process with 3.0 etc, etc, going forwards. A sad state of affairs.
  4. 2.0 is a mess from the start. No points and slots on cards is an insult. Pilots ditched, cards nerfed left and right and changes to the rules which are not only unnecessary, but drain the fun from the game. Oh, and you have to pay 100's of $ to keep playing with things you already own... just because tournament players thought the game was broken by meta madness (which will simply happen all over again for them BTW).. Get out now, come back for 3.0 in a couple of years when another cash grab is needed by FFG.
  5. Don't want people to counterfeit? Then don't charge three times what something is worth... or try and make people buy bits of cardboard for ridiculous prices, just in order to keep playing with what they already own. Job done. No thanks needed. Cheers!
  6. FFG don't care about establishing any sort of convention, the sooner things get messed up again, the sooner they can cash in with X-Wing 3.0 In fact it's in their best interests to fail at sorting things out. If it's perfect, no one will want to 'upgrade' to 3.0.
  7. So many ships, utterly, utterly ruined. A sad, sad day for x-wing. Player base is now split between 1.0 casual and 2.0 tournament players.
  8. Unboxing is kinda useless. No idea on points costs and no ideas on ship slots because of idiotic 'App only' requirements. Sad.

    FFG's app

    Version 1.0 of the App is free, but once you come to enjoy using it they will upgrade to 2.0, which will have a cost per faction charge.
  10. Dash will be ruined. No more PTL, nerfed turrets. Goodbye to the most fun ship to fly. In fact all large ships are basically dead meat, with no engine upgrades and nerfed turrets. Sad.
  11. Its the internet. My ignore list has swollen nicely in the last few days. Unless you leap about happily, proclaiming that you are eager to accept all the new problems of a new ruleset, are rich enough to spend $2-300 just to be able to use the ships you have... and love the idea of having to go online to even build a list, then you are attacked, belittled, called a troll, etc, etc. Sad, but as soon as you say something someone else doesn't like, the keyboard warriors hit town. Welcome to the internet 2018
  12. What I'd prefer is not to have to pay out ridiculous amounts of money to continue to play with my ships. FFG have shown their true colours here. They should get into trading card games... oh wait...
  13. From what I can see its... Play V 1.0 if you want to keep having fun. Play 2.0 if you are a tournament addict and have to shell out cash to keep playing with horrible new rules.
