    OK - so I just opened it in Chrome and the Evade is there now - guess the older version of IE I was using is sticking random icons in the action bar! Thanks - thought I was going crazy! (Well even more crazy....)

    Well, alrighty then. I guess I need to look at the cards, rather than believe what I'm seeing in YASB 2.0!

    Can someone smarter than me explain how Vermeil is getting an Evade to use with Juke? It's not on his action bar, and I don't see anything in his ability to get one.
  5. I don't know any more than the next guy, but I was suspicious as soon as I opened my conversion kits and saw that some ships like the M3 came with a crazy amount of pilots, then others like the A-wing came with 4. Missing Aces like Tycho made me think the missing ones would return in the re-released ship packs, but getting them all/most in the conversion kit leads me to believe this is pretty much it, or it for a looonnng time.
  6. Thought so, wishful thinking I guess! Thanks!
  7. Question of timing - Would this cause Snap to lose his regular action, as the additional white boost would then be red? Or can you select his regular action before the 1-turn red boost?
  8. I didn't play the Scurrg all that much in 1st, but I just played a fairly bloated out Captain Nym in my last game and he was really good. I may be mistaken, but Havoc title is the only way to get Trajectory Simulator in a scum list. Pretty criminal that the scurrg is missing the access to what makes a bomber good, especially if you're going to make it a dedicated bomber. Bomblet Generator worked much better than I was expecting though, I tacked on a Shield Upgrade as extra reload insurance and ended up reloading once during the game.

  9. Yup. Isn't it great that the card art on engine upgrade is a Kihraxz??? Maybe there is hope they add a red boost?
  10. Actually - I'd kinda like to see it! Sounds interesting...
  11. For me, what hurts a 5K only list over a 5X is the single shield, all but guaranteeing the Kirzxccvb is taking crits from the first salvo on, leaving you to use your action flipping over crits, or just dealing with the consequences of a maimed ship. Even with barrel roll, they still aren't as agile as and X-wing with servomotor s foils. Reducing the Kirzxcvbv by 1-2 points is worthless, there is nothing in the mod slot at that point level that would improve it, assuming it is the 3-mod slot customization was supposed to make the ship special to begin with. Reduce the list to a 4K, you at least have some room for (expensive) shield upgrades, maybe bump them up to Black Sun Aces and/or a named pilot or 2.
  12. The magic answer is the keyword in the online rules reference, provided by Innese, not the rulebook. It is as I suspected and played, but only having the rulebook on hand during the game, my son playing of Wullffwarro preferred the shield loss as damage! lol Thanks everyone!
  13. Thank you for the response, Innese - but it still doesn't clear my question up. Is not suffering damage, in fact, being damaged?
  14. Abilities like Wullffwarro for example, when exactly are you considered damaged? When you lose a shield, or when the ship takes a damage card? Arguing with a 15yo is not fun, when you can't point to a place in the rulebook...."I took a hit and my shields are damaged!!!!"
  15. I was JUST re-reading the rules lol - yes thank you. you declare the direction first and cannot choose to fail if you are able to pull off the move. Nothing to see here! Although, still, Composure doesn't seem likely to trigger all that much.
  16. Thinking in the context of Composure and the topic in the main forum. Seems to me you can rarely ever fail an action? 2.0 Lock will almost never fail as there will most likely be something - Enemy or friendly ship, obstacle in range 3. Focus, calculate or evade or reinforce as long as you aren't stressed. Which pretty much leaves you to boost or barrel roll. <EDIT - Here's where I go wrong and should have read the rules first!> Barrel roll, sure might fail if you can't roll one way, but (heres where I may have it wrong) aren't you required to barrel roll any way you can, even if you must roll the opposite side to complete the action you chose? Same with boost - you have 3 different forward moves, and sure its possible all 3 could be blocked but its possible to complete a boost somehow usually.
  17. Veteran Instincts. (ducks behind his Gonk) Just kidding dont kill me! Count me in for Lightning Reflexes. Really, I do like all those use once & toss cheap EPTs. Stay on target was awesome on Kad Solus. Hope it makes the cut, since Kad 's ability the same in 2.0.
  18. Exactly - local guys that use the cardboard ones already leave the blue lock on the ship. And I can't imagine acrylic guys are going to ditch what they won/own. Its not like the 1.0 way was functionally different. Now, this 2.0 green/red/orange/yellow token change might cause confusion with someone using old acrylics to a newer player, but shouldn't be a game stopper.
  19. Seriously???!!!! I also run acrylic Aurebesh locks - I have never noticed the aurebesh tokens in "Heroes"! The sprues just ended up mixed into the ever-growing massive pile in the basement. Thanks - I'll have to check it out!
  20. I think the changes to the Evade action will help keep Aces in check, thus allowing generics and swarms to be viable. 4+ ships in a list were always my favorites in 1.0, and from what I've seen I still think I'm going to be just fine.
  21. Releasing with the rest of 2.0 wave 1....I swear, FFG is trying to get me in trouble with my wife!
  22. I did edit my post after I replied to you regarding the 3 pilot cards. I never noticed the Black Sun Sol.//Binayre Pirate Z-95 ship base before - I stand corrected.
  23. While I think you might be correct with 4 Z-95 base tiles, they have not (and haven't heard otherwise for 2.0) ever put generic pilots back to back. Much more likely would be 2x each of Cracken//Bandit & Blount//Tala, similar to what they did in 1st ed. Which would s*ck, as one of my favorite rebel builds is a Z swarm. (edit) Then again, they do include 3 bandit & 3 tala pilot cards....
  24. I have seen the picture if the 3 pilot cards, but haven't heard where this self-contained "baggie" is coming from? Is it a pre-order handout?
  25. Agreed! But I got way too much Etsy acrylic stuff to not keep using. If someone wants to complain my shields don't "flip" , my Aurebesh target locks aren't 2.0 standard, or my focus tokens aren't round or square or whatever they're changing to be they can **** off lol
