    That’s a heck of a list @Boom Owl.  The importance of some stats will depend on list composition.  If I’m always playing high PS Aces then my number of blocks is going to be low and getting them is of lower importance than if I’m flying low PS jousters.  I’d almost say that number of times blocked by a higher PS ship is a negative statistic.

    One of the cool things about real sports is that you can track your favorite teams progress or your own improvement fairly easily. There are tons of stats for everything. Or even simpler when you run you can just record your pace and see if you run faster next time. Running gud is measurable.
    So this leads to a two part question:
    1. Are there any statistical categories that can be measured per game that help track improvement in X-Wing in someway? Or could be used to define a stat profile for what being good at X-Wing might be? And how can all of us measure them efficiently without it being annoying? More descriptive than just Wins vs Losses at large tournaments. Should one or two team members just be the stat guys ( we used to have a few people help out with this back when I was playing Soccer competitively, they traveled with us specifically to record in game team/player stats ). Helped the coach make decisions over the course of a season. Some possible X-Wing examples below:
    Blocks 
    Opponent Moves Guessed 
    Damage Dealt per Game/Round
    Damage Taken per Game/Round
    Shots Defended from Range 1, 2, 3 
    Shots Taken from Range 1, 2, 3
    Shots Taken in Opponents Arc
    Shots Taken out of Opponents Arc
    2+ Overlapped Arcs on Target Per Game
    Single Target Damage Per Round
    Damage Outside of Combat
    Arcs avoided without repositioning
    Arcs avoided with repositioning
    Reposition Actions
    Turns Before Initial Combat
    No Combat turns per game
    Combat turns per game
    K-Turns, Sloops, or Talons 
    Stress Received per Game
    MOV
    Dice Modified per Game/Round
    Wins
    Losses
    Dice Complaints per Game
    Jokes/Laughs per Game
    Forum/Reddit Posts Per Day
    Podcasts Listened to Per Week

    2. Is the MOV Swiss + Knockout tournament structure the best way to identify the best players? The System Open structure was really cool because it created all kinds of pressure situations in Swiss that I greatly enjoyed (each game mattered more to me) and MOV felt less pressing. Though it did result in a # of players days ending early ( a bonus at big conventions? ). So the question is what Tournament Format identifies the best players most accurately for X-Wing within the constraints of 2 days only? Do other 75 min miniature games have different better formats? Current set up seems pretty effective now as alot of the same names still make cuts at tournaments. Some form of Promotion and Relegation is a fantastic addition to. But whats the ideal 2.0 format? What we have now?

    Major Tom got a reaction from Arkanta974 in Let's predict X-Wing 2.0 Wave 2!   
    Should be three ships per faction to keep the balance with wave 1, so I would expect to see the Upsilon and the Resistance Bomber too.  New A-Wing might also be replaced by the Reaistance Falcon, but that would mean the Rebels don’t have a Falcon (outside conversion kits) and two other factions do.  It would also mean no new ships in the wave, and I expect every wave to have at least one ship we’ve not seen before.

    The second wave will be more for Resistance and First Order faction. Since each faction have 3 ships, it's safe to said :
    New core set with Poe Dameron's X-Wing (black/orange with wing foil) and 2x Tie/Fo
    Resistance Conversion Kit
    First Order Conversion Kit
    Tie/Fo expansion
    T-70 X-Wing expansion
    New A-Wing expansion
    Tie special force expansion
    Tie Silencer expansion
    Resistance Millenium Falcon expansion

    This doesn't force your child online.
    You only have to go online for about 2 minutes to download the PDF, one time, and then peruse that at will. You might choose to repeat that 3 or 4 times a year for updated point costs, depending on FFG's schedule and whether or not you want too.
    Also with the quick build cards, even that is technically optional.

    coles notes:
    - Mathwing 2.0- will not happen
    - well Mathwing is outdated as a concept
    - no Mathwing is awesome
    - you should do a patreon
    - darwinism is a relgion
    - no your religion is dumb
    - no your religion is dumb
    - nazi cat
    - what is wrong with you people
    - dumpster fire memes
    - murder

    This of course does not excuse anyone. Having an explanation for holding religious views does not change the banality of them. 
    Not everyone is affected the same way, but from my point of view, the people who are, are lesser. This is is my subjective value system, where I prefer independent thought. Not a defining trait of the religious. You may disagree as you wish.
    To quote Bojack "not knowing you are a horrible person, doesn't make you less of a horrible person"

    Forest is very much a work in progress, Lenox rider is nearly done.  I may have to revisit the Lenox itself though as the markings did not come out as well as I had hoped.

    I’m thinking Wave 2 will be the re-launch of the First Order and Resistance, so TIE/fo, TIE/sf, Upsilon, Silencer, T-70, Old Falcon and Bomber, with the RZ-2 A-Wing as the new ship balancing out the numbers.
