  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.
  14. Wait... will FFG take blood in exchange for 2.0 stuff? That changes my opinion quite a bit... in fact, now we're talking! Does it have to be your own blood, or can you use someone else's?
  15. You've heard of MTG, right? You know how money grabbing FFG are... right? You realise that as soon as 2.0's 2nd wave hits, it will have new cards, new upgrades that aren't needed.. etc, etc... right? Roll on the 3.0 cash grab.
  16. The alternative is for FFG not to screw over their customer base and think they can get away with it. Will the new players joining the hobby exceed the old ones leaving it? Only time will tell I guess... and support from a few play testers and FFG employees isn't going to help them.
  17. Where you don't get charged £200 to continue playing every few years...?
  18. This is the way I see it. FFG create a rules system about space dogfights. They then sell you a new ship every few months, with new upgrades and skills and weapons.. even though the rules don't need any more upgrades or additions. Soon they are creating upgrades simply because they HAVE to. They are't necessary, but every new ship must have a new card with it. Soon the rules are bloated, falling apart because of poor play testing, and even more upgrades keep on coming. FFG realise that they have screwed the game up by constantly introducing new rules, so decide to reboot the game with a new rules set. which unnecessarily changes lots of things in minor cosmetic ways... so they can charge all the customers in their game £200+ That's right. THEY screw up the rules, then charge YOU £200+ to fix them. Once they finish counting their wealth, you better believe X-WIng 3.0 is on the way, because every few years they will be doing this again. SO buy your 2.0 stuff fast people, before the 3.0 conversion kits hit the stands. DISGUSTING! Get out now, while you can...
  19. Star Trek Attack Wing suddenly looks a LOT more attractive....
  20. I am heartbroken that rules have been changed that did not need to be, simply to line FFG's pockets. I can't even list build without a computer? This is simply CRAZY! Also I simply cannot and will not spend £200+ in order to keep playing, I feel like my home has been invaded by thugs who are holding me hostage at gun point. I will carry on playing 1.0 as long as I can with like minded people at my FLGS, then its goodbye X-Wing. I will not forget what FFG did here and it will be a cold day in **** before they get another penny out of me for anything! They will regret this when they see what its done to the community. Believe it. A sad day for gaming.
  21. I honestly cannot describe how angry these changes make me. I will never spend another penny on FFG. I assume they think they can stay afloat purely on new players, because I see a lot of old ones throwing in the towel at this point. So many new rules that I don't like, and I have to pay out £200+ in order to continue playing at all?? See ya.
  22. I'm out. I simply can't afford to upgrade, nor do I like the need an App to build a list because no points on cards. So much to hate! I'll carry on playing 1.0 as long as there are players for it in my area, but 2.0 conversion is out for me, no more of my money for FFG. I'm done.
  23. I am positive... ...that this is the death of X-Wing. I am positive that many players will be selling off their ships and never playing competitive x-wing again, after discovering they 1) Can't afford all the upgrade kits and 2) Don't have access to apps to build lists, because there are no points costs on the cards. Absolutely inexcusable greed on the part of FFG. I'm out.
