  1. Thanks
    Slugrage got a reaction from Wazat in X-Wing moving to Atomic Mass Games   
    So... Asmodee was bought by the French private equity firm Eurazeo in 2013 for €143 million. Asmodee acquired FFG in November 2014 (the first round of the OMG THE SKY IZ FALLING posts for those that have been here will recall). In July 2018, Eurazeo sold Asmodee to PAI Partners for €1.2 billion. Asmodee created Atomic Mass Games in autumn 2019, after being acquired by PAI Partners. In 2018, PAI Partners made the following statement in this article: https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/40926/eurazeo-finds-buyer-asmodee
    "PAI gave some clues to its plans for Asmodee, saying in its statement that it “intends to support the current management team in its plans to grow the business further through international expansion both organically and by acquisition.” PAI partner Gaёlle d’Engremont gave some elaboration on those plans. “We are excited by the company’s growth prospects, which include further developing Asmodee’s position in the core hobby gaming market and successfully diversifying the group’s main brands onto other platforms.”"
      PAI Partners is the European private equity company that owns Asmodee as part of it's investment portfolio. Asmodee, in turn, owns FFG and Atomic Mass Games among others. In my opinion, PAI will no doubt try to grow the value of Asmodee (with the FFG/AMG portions including the lucrative Star Wars game license) and then try to sell it sometime in 4 to 7 years at an increased valuation based on how they flip other license companys/products in their portfolio.
    About PAI Partners from: https://www.paipartners.com/about/pai-today/
    "We acquire majority stakes in medium to large European companies who are leading brands in their market. We invest in five core sectors and are particularly focused on consolidating sectors and on markets where growth can be sustained through economic and financial market cycles. We harness our deep industry connections to deliver an ambitious and truly transformative approach. Our approach encompasses every aspect of our investments: consolidation, market position, growth, product and service development and beyond. Ultimately, we always seek to build excellent companies into sector leaders that can attract a strong premium on exit. An approach and attitude that often sets PAI apart from others."

    Asmodee is terrible at holding licenses.

    Complete game. SW Destiny is a complete game, not a dead one.
    Armada is a dead game, because it has unreleased content and no one plays it.

    There's a bunch of WH40k players in my local community, all with their brand new 8th edition stuff, who are totally *gushing* over wanting to play SW:L since they're all Star Wars fans at heart. I think FFG is on the right track with this.

    Vagabond definitely can drop the second device. Rules reference delineates by phase, not turn, for restricting device drops. 
    Edit: it actually only restricts to one for the systems phase. Doesn’t look like any restrictions for other phases at all. 
    I think these pilots are all pretty fun additions to the game. I love these card packs already.

    Slugrage reacted to Managarmr in Please keep thread titles free from spoilers for Rise of Skywalker   
    So today is premier day, and by now first Australians already have left the cinema after watching the movie.
    Not everyone can make it on premier day or even next week (be it work, family or other constraints, like being stationed far off due to e.g. military service). 
    So please, keep all thread titles spoiler free.
    And in posts, please mark them appropiately.
    Thanks for your courtesy.

    Slugrage got a reaction from DR4CO in Targeting Battery and Boosted Scanners   
    No.
    They didn't need to put the override terminology on the Targeting Battery card, nor does anyone need to use Boosted Scanners for the Rage 4-5 lock because it's right there in the Rules Reference Guide in the first few sentences of the very first column on Page 1.
     
    So spend your energy to use your Targeting Battery and do your bonus attack. Acquire lock. Done.
