  1. It would be nice if there could be a reset and go back to the same ownership as pre-asmodee. FFG was hitting home run after home run back then. It been sad to witness the changes over such a short time. Before asmodee took over I would stand in line for hours at gen-con to see the booth. This year was the first year that I didn’t really care if I made it to FFG booth. I’m really fearful for the future of X-Wing especially, it’s my favorite game and to see it in the hands that it’s in now is not inspiring confidence.
  2. https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/356367/Fantasy_Flight_Interactive_to_close_after_companywide_layoffs.php I guess this would explain why the X-Wing app is garbage. This is what I feared when they sold to asmodee. Farewell once greatest game company of all time, You will be missed.
  3. You are serious? They released a conversion kit and REQUIRE an app that does not work???
  4. I am just getting switched over to 2.0 and have question. I have downloaded the squad builder and played a couple regular games. I hate having to use the app for everything but there is no getting beyond that thing. My question is how in The heck do I build an epic squad on the app? I don’t see epic anywhere as a choice. My son bought me the epic conversion and I would love to use it but I am scratching my head right now. Thanks for any help.
  5. Imperial assault can be played solo. That to me is a huge factor in buying a game. Legion will be much closer to X-wing in that it’s a skirmish game. If if you have ever played and enjoyed any of the other FFG games like descent you will like IA. It has the same feel as other co-op campaign games. If you have kids I would definitely suggest IA. My kids get excited to play it and with the app out now it’s much more fun to play with your kids against the app.
  6. We need a way to add in imperial units. I have been playing through the campaign with my son and we keep getting Nexu’s popping up constantly. It would make more sense thematically if some elite stormtroopers popped out instead of a nexu inside an imperial base. And in those instances when I defeat the wrong unit I can put it back in.
  7. I think it’s werid that so many keep saying that it’s too compact. It’s Modular, you can build whatever you want. You guys remind me of a bunch of Lord Businesses who can’t build outside what’s on the box. You can make a battlescape of anything you can think up with these sets.
  8. If you check out both Kickstarters they have the massive indoor sets and smaller outdoor buildings called the “outlands” that looks like something you would find on Tatooine.
  9. FFG has taken complex game archetypes and simplified them before with games like X-Wing. That game could have been a very deep stat heavy game but they made it fun for noobs and still fun for veteran war gamers while being easy to learn. They appear to have taken that formula forward with Legion. I was able to talk with Alex Davy who is the lead on Legion while I was at Gencon. He said they they want the rules to be flexible and easy to use. He said the rules will be a basic template which gaming groups and time to their liking. The movement is going easy, there are templates just like armada and x-wing taking any difficulty out of movement. The attacks were simple to figure out without any help on my first demo. I really think there won’t be any other game quite like Legion because FFG are the masters of making simple to learn AND very deep games.
  10. It’s designed for 28-32 MM so it’s perfect for Legion. I have the original set and the outlander from Kickstarter 2 and together they fit in one small box but fill an area 2’x4’ with multiple levels. If you do one level you could fill probably 4’x4’ or 3’x6’ fairly easily. The price is VERY affordable for this high of quality. You can get one set for under $100.
  11. I wanted to share some incredible terrain that looks like it will be perfect for Legion. I talked with Alex Davy at Gencon and showed him this terrain and he said that it will work perfectly with the rules that will be implemented. He said that he is working on elevation rules and the ability to use Boba Fett style jetpack troopers. He actually wrote down the info when I showed him pictures of my set and he said that he was going to look into the company because he was so impressed with their stuff. They ran two different sci-if kickstarters so go check them out http://www.battlesystems.co.uk/
  12. Post here if you are at gencon currently and would use this ticket. Saturday at 2:00pm
  13. I won't need Boshek since I just take intentional draws.
