  1. X-Wing: Simple scoring (now) that perfectly suits a very competitive game. Believe it or not, I don't find X-Wing to be an engaging casual game. A lot of casual 100 point Dogfights can be 'effectively over' in 15 minutes, or less. The only reason that tournament games last longer is because players are trying to gain or preserve their MoV. Armada: Convoluted, artificial scoring that does not suit a competitive game. Armada is best suited to be a casual game. You can usually play for at least an hour and enjoy the experience, possibly with a beer and pretzels. Competitive Armada has three main issues: 1 - Game length. There's only so much time in the day to play numerous Swiss rounds. 2 - Artificial (non)engagement, where sometimes players just want to stall in a corner - and can, because of the six game turn limit. 3 - The scoring system. It's terrible. There is something fundamentally wrong when a player with three wins, finishes in second place to someone who lost a round. I've seen the problems with Armada from the perspective as a player and a TO. It's sad because the game is awesome, but it just doesn't stack up as a top tier competitive game.
  2. You're never satisfied! I wouldn't complain if I won a Challenge Coin for making the Top Cut! Someone tell me, please... what does a Top Cut feel like?
  3. Streaming for the Top 16 will begin very shortly!
  4. Please supply your data to support your claim that FFG's dice are 'generally not random'.
  5. Too bad that you haven't figured out how to defeat Palp Aces...
  6. I like driving my car. I can't stand the Porsche company, their cars are too expensive. Because of Porsche being a business and needing to make money, I can only afford to drive a crappy Ford. Why can't Porsche sell their cars cheaper so we can all have fair access to them? /end rant about the lamentations of paying to play.
  7. Maybe he was cheating, maybe he wasn't. It's difficult to know intent, when all we see is a small template displacement. The moral of the thread - watch what your opponent is doing.
  8. WWHSD said : "Definitely. I've generally been looking at him with Electronic Baffles in his system slot so that he can reliably cause himself damage in the activation phase." "Her"... Quickdraw is a SHE. (I screwed up the quotes. Sorry!)
  9. It's true. All of it. I was there, in the X-Wing world, not the make-believe D&D one...
  10. Clone Wars and Rebels are TV series and Rogue 1 has yet to be released? I'm not sure what you movies you mean?
  11. Troop Transport is broken. Whoooops, sorry... wrong FFG game!
  12. It's true. All of it. It's worth taking. That first round, where you move 1 forwards and take an irrelevant focus, now means that you can target lock something, instead.
  13. Why? Contracted Scouts are easy to defeat when you know how.
  14. Meanwhile, back in the real world, competent players will still defeat all of the contrived strategies that try and game the new scoring system...
  15. Definitely two - one on each side of the card.
