    Do not reproduce during the 3 years that proceed a tournament. A youngling is a sure-fire way to be sleepy.

I mean, hes one of the most powerful guys in the galaxy, and he dates a robot? Yeesh, leave your luxury cruiser every now and then, pal.

    Still, I'd much rather they take more time if they need to to make an excellent movie rather than rushing it to make a subpar one.

    Just a thought, but Rebels is apparently introducing a buttload of capital ships this season. Wave 3 announcement may be delayed so FFG isn't spoiling Rebels episodes before they air.

    Luke Licens reacted to stevensonson in Are they taking the X out of X-Wing???   
    One of the best things about X-wing is how simple it is. As someone who'd just left 40k, not having to read a 300 page manual full of special rules, caveats and new versions every few years, X-wing was a breath of fresh air.
     
    The fact X-wing can be both 'Beer and Pretzels' and a well-balanced competitive game is a testament to the great job FFG have done with it.

    Luke Licens reacted to Ravncat in What new negative do rebels get to ignore this time   
    Everytime a new imperial ship comes out I wonder what new negative in the game are they going to get to ignore, They have ships/pilots that ignore defense rolls, ships that take dice and turn it into a positive and can just set dice to any value for no reason, they have ships that can ignore the penalty of k turning because why not be able to k turn while stressed. It really seems that if you don't know how to fly or make choices that have consequences that imperials are the faction for you.

    ignore penalty of k-turning = stress = no red maneuvers + no actions
     
    Hera deals with one of those things, Chopper does the other (leaving behind a new issue --> damage)
     
     
    besides, nothing ignores anything as much as a PWT, and we've had Han for years now

    Luke Licens reacted to Parakitor in AAAAAND Targeting Astromech sucks.   
    Please help me out here. I've read the entire thread just to make sure I wasn't missing something, but it wasn't explained.
     
    Why is it bad that the Koiogran Turn is so easily blocked? At least two people have said this, but from my readings of the rules and the FAQ, it seems like this droid would still proc if your K-turn is blocked. That's not terrible. Take a target lock when you can't be shot back. Of course, the following round or two could be a bit rough trying to draw a bead on your target without getting lit up, but it's better than getting your K-turn blocked and NOT having a target lock, right?
     
    Or am I totally wrong, and "after you execute a red maneuver" means you have to complete said maneuver?

    As usual it seems, I disagree.
     
    I've used X-Wings a hell of a lot, and Targeting Astromech looks pretty good to me.  The K-turns are the X-Wing's best chance of keeping a bead on hypermobile ships, so getting a free target lock when you K-turn (and pseudo shield upgrade with IA as well) should make the T-65 a much more effective jouster.  Not as good one one one as a Defender, but you can fit four PS4 X-Wings in a single list.
     
    4 x Red Squadron, Targeting Astromech, Integrated Astromech... yeah, I can see myself using that list quite a lot.
     
    Sorry it's not to everyone's taste, but I'm looking forward to it.
     
    edit:  what I'm not looking forward to however is having to buy 4 T70's just so I can run Red Squadron...

    Luke Licens reacted to ObiWonka in PS bid shifts downwards (disturbance in the PS force)?   
    First of all, it's a sh*tty phrase that puts down anyone who wants to fly those types of ships. That type of negativity is neither necessary nor constructive.
     
    Second of all, little skill is not no skill. You can't just choose any random maneuver on your dial every turn and win with a fat turret (also, the MoV change fixes something that was broken with the game, not the ships or players), and you can't just choose any random action after moving every turn and win with a high PS ace.
     
    Third, look at the Worlds 2015 lists and results. If high PS and turrets are all there is to this game, then list #10 should have been undefeated, won, and caused everyone to quit the game because it's so broken. Paul Heaver won for the third time in a row, yes with an ace, but not the most reactive one, but also beating multiple ace/turret lists on his way to his undefeated victory. There's BroBots in top 4, a triple K-Wing list in the top 8, and a Swarm in top 16. Things that, apparently, should just roll over and die because they lack fatness or aces.
     
    You don't like turrets and aces? Fine. Don't play them. But bitching and moaning about them in every single thread accomplishes nothing. Better players than you have won against them and lost with them. So until you sweep worlds with RAC/Whipser, kindly shut the **** up about it. Let's keep these forums positive, constructive, and useful for everyone who might be visiting.
