    Y-Wing, Ordinance and Long Range Scanners in 2.0?

    There'sa lot of ways to 'solve' the problem mechanically. In regard to the question of whether it could be solved with point adjustment only, let me ask the jury: would you equip a 0-point proton torpedo on an I1 Y-wing? If you would, I submit that we have an answer

    Shuttle Tydirium Episode 80: Second Take on Second Edition

    I think this was in one of the team covenant interviews? Not sure where I heard it but I'm quite sure there will be these wave X conversion/update kits released by faction

    Y-Wing, Ordinance and Long Range Scanners in 2.0?

    Great point. The ability via the squad builder app to differentially price upgrades by ship has been well established. Do we know that they can do it by pilot? I would assume that they can, and if that's the case, they can certainly adjust the price of lock-dependent ordnance weapons on low-PS pilots. They key here being that they can change the cost of the ordnance upgrade depending on which pilot equips it.

    Shuttle Tydirium Episode 80: Second Take on Second Edition

    It's the first time we had to play Jim off the stage
  5. I'm constantly surprised this board still exists. There's a slim chance mission control gets revamped for 2e but I'm not holding my breath.

    Missions 2.0

    It'll be more complicated than that. A lot of the fundamental changes to the game will impact missions in a variety of ways. the basic rules language of the game has changed; missions will have to be rewritten from the ground up to accomodate that. Tons of upgrades and pilots have undergone name changes and more importantly functional changes, meaning that scenarios that include specific pilots and upgrades will need to be updated. missions will also probably need to be rebalanced in the face of fundamental changes in the game dynamics, which might include changes to the average attack or defense capability of ships. It'll take a bit of work to convert 1st edition missions to second edition the right way
  7. Will Mission Control be supported again in X-wing 2.0?
  8. Special events have been mentioned when the squadron builder app was discussed. What kinds of events are being planned? Will events include special thematic scenarios? Will there be mass-market thematic or competitive campaigns?

    The App and What It Means for Player Control of Private Play

    FFG won't do that - they're pretty clear that they want the cards on the table to be directly representative of what you're flying - in official events anyway. At home or with friends, everyone has always been basically free to do whatever they want as long as their opponent is OK with it.

    The App and What It Means for Player Control of Private Play

    Sure; what I meant was that they can't add new pilots, for example. But they can remove pilots from the available pool. In general what they seem to be able to do is remove cards, change costs, and modulate compatibilities (deciding which ships can take which upgrades).

    The App and What It Means for Player Control of Private Play

    I don't think they have capacity to add content via the app, but it definitely seems like they can take it away. They could definitely do that in some sort of global campaign

    2.0 - possible campaign expansions?

    I'm not sure how much support for campaigns and scenarios this actually entails. Is it a replacement for Mission Control (the scenario building app)? In other words, does it have capacity for one to define mission-specific rules, deployment zones, etc.? Or does it just give you control over what ships and upgrades can be deployed? either way is useful for scenario building, but one is a lot more so

    Just added three more events: Trench Run: A memorable mission that puts you into the thick of the classic film’s climatic moments. Can you bullseye a womp rat and lead the Rebels to victory or can you defend the ultimate peacemaker and crush the rebellion with one swift stroke? TRON Wing: Just like in the movie TRON, you need to maneuver your ship such that the templates left trailing behind will obstruct the movement of your opponents. Last ship standing is victorious! This next one should be placed after the Huge Ship Battle description. Epic Event: Speaking of those Epics you bought – if you’ve been using them for Epic battles, we’ve got the Event for you. Bring them to our little Epic Event. Prizes will be awarded at the completion of the event based on MOV. If you don’t have an Epic ship but want to give the Epic format a try, a limited number of Epic ships will be available to add to your squad of small and/or large ships.

    I hope you can make it this year, too! I'm updating the huge ship brawl a little bit to open things up a bit - I think it will be a lot of fun!
