    I just got mine yesterday so this helps me prep for the 2020 instead of trying to scramble to make the flight and hotel accommodations. Thanks for the info guys.

    Sergovan reacted to Darth Meanie in Better (335 Days) Late Than Never   
    I finally played my first ever game of 2.0 last night, 11 months and 1 day after 2.0 dropped.  I want to dedicate it to @Kehl_Aecea, who out of the compete kindness of his heart sent me an Imperial conversion kit he'd won knowing that this old coot was too cantankerous to ever pony up his own money to play his fave faction.  I played Inferno Squad plus a couple of Black Squad TIEs, and won!!

    Next, we tried out the Meteor Storm Environment card.  Y'all know I hate 200 point sandbox, right??  This was a hoot!!!  Every other turn you get to toss a rock on the board, foul up you opponent's perfectly good flight path, and in the end have a crazy random asteroid field to fly thru.  It ended up looking like this:

    My two X-wings ended up bugging out to R5 some damage, and circle around the back side of that mess.  With 1 Hull left per T-70, and Dooku at 5 Hull, my brother decides a 4 die R1 attack won't need a Focus and spends it to avoid a crit from Snap.  He rolls 2 eyeballs and 2 blanks on his attack against Lt Bastion!!  Lt Bastion pounds him for 3 hits cuz Bastions is luckily still there, and the next turn Snap Init kills Dooku with guns!!

    So, I'm 2-0 in 2.0!!
    At this point, I would say that Charge tokens add one heck of a lot of chit management, but we both can see how this makes for a much improved game in terms of design.
    DM gives 2.0 a thumbs up!

    There is a picture of them mounted under a base in Medium bases thread.

    Just to second the super fast and clean solution of cabinet bumpers.  Have four of these on most of my bases and when I accidently play with bases that do not have them, I find they slide all over the place.  Probably not quite as effective as mouse pads but takes virtually no time or effort.  Not sure on the exact height you want though  it's been too long since I bought them...
    Example at Amazon

    I am terrible at bumping and have looked for a number of years for a solution. 
    I started with washers, but they make it heavy to move and doesn't stop the sliding much.
    I found somewhere to use kitchen cabinet door bumpers.  They are the little plastic/resin things that prevent kitchen cabinet doors from banging loudly when they slam.  A sheet is pretty cheap.  You can buy at Wal-mart or on Amazon.  I don't recall the exact size as it's been years.

    Sergovan reacted to Jarval in So did Wave 4 release is some areas of world, but not others?   
    I think it's just Australia that got an early release, we've seen no sign of it so far in the UK.  I find it hard to begrudge Australia getting something early, given how often they have to wait for stuff. 🙂

    Sergovan reacted to Lyianx in This may be a stupid question but what the ****   
    To be more clear, when it says "You ignore obstacles at range 0 " it means YOU ignore the Effects of obstacles at range 0. All effects, and Only you. 

    One of the effects of being at range 0 of an asteroid is "The ship cannot perform attacks." You ignore that. One of the effects of shooting though an asteroid is the defender gains an additional defense die. You ignore that. 

    However, since only You are ignoring the effects, anyone shooting you, still gives you a defense die bonus. Because the effect is from them, not from you. and they are not ignoring the effects from it.

    Sergovan reacted to Ryfterek in Contradicting rules regarding Range 0 and the U-Wing's ability   
    You ought to keep in mind U-wing's rotation is not a standard execution of a 0 manoeuvre, hence the bit you quoted out of the RR regarding stationary is not directly applicable to it. 
    To be exact, the rotation only happens after the stationary move is executed. So, the part of RR applicable to Stationary applies to the execution of Stationary, then once that execution is done, U-wing can now rotate 90/180'. To that move, applies the other bit you quoted, but out of the two, it is the only one relevant when the rotation is considered.

    Sergovan got a reaction from ScummyRebel in If we have the ship from 1st Edition, do we have reason to buy the same from 2nd Edition?   
    The Arc-170 has only the Rebel faction cards/dial with it in the rebel conversion kit. It does not have a Republic version so you will have to purchase that pack if you want to run 2 Arc-170's off of one exp pack (which ever pilots aren't on the back of the base plate that you want to fly and you can use the dial from rebels in a Republic dial cover). That was the only missed ship in the conversion packs that you'll have to really buy new.

    Sergovan got a reaction from Mace Windu in Talon Roll Ruling required, FFG   
    In this case the wording on the rule to execute that maneuver is not as clear as it should be ( it even contradicts itself). That is a rules error. A judge, in the moment making a decision, does there best to follow the rules over everything else. If the rule isn't clear, that is not the judges fault. The correct resolution is an errata to that section of the RR.

    Sergovan reacted to Mace Windu in Talon Roll Ruling required, FFG   
    I guess the point he was trying to make is how exactly do you confirm the ship has fully executed the maneuver before you rotate the ship and place it? it clearly states you have to have fully execute the maneuver before your rotate it.
    I think the intention is clear but the rules are flat out poorly worded, to the point where the ruling that the judge made in this instance was quite justifiable, regardless of what is intended.

    I honestly think it's the right call.  It shouldn't be, but in redrafting how the manouevre is written for the 2e hash mark rules, they seem to have made it go a little wonky with timing.
     
    How it should work is that any of the three positions completes, as for a roll or as in 1e, but how it is written looks like it only completes if the 3 turn would complete, then the rotation happens after.

    SQUAD LEADER:
    Gain red coordinate
    "While you coordinate, the ship you choose can perform an action only if that action is also on your action bar."
     
    Drea would gain a stress from the red co ordiante when squad leadering the fang. The fang would do a white barrel roll. Drea has a barrel roll action on her action bar and so does the fang (which fulfills co-ordinate). The colour does not matter.

    Sergovan got a reaction from JBFancourt in Moralo Eval: where can he return?   
    FFG maps have rounded corners. How will you determine which edge you hit first?
    I would say the player chooses which edge he flew off from and then picks that edge to place Moralo at. Then Planning phase can start.

    Was in a small league tournament yesterday. I forgot my printed list on my kitchen table so I couldn't generate my list at the tourney for the following reasons:
    1) App does not have offline support.
    2) I don't have data on my phone. I only use it for text and talk with my wife and friends.
    3) The store did not have wifi so I couldn't log in.
    Organizer had to generate my list on his phone to calculate my points
     
    I don't think you can even write in your list anymore as the points aren't anywhere but online. Seeing a person with a list with too many points in a tourney is not surprising considering we no longer can check it at the table on round one anymore.
