    Handler got a reaction from Embir82 in Where will point increases and decreases occur with the first “Rebalance”   
    If they do update slots and point costs, how do you think the app will deal with saved squads which are then illegal or have points left over? Not the point of this thread I know, but it follows on.

    Buffing is good, but it has limitations.  For one thing, there is only so far you can reduce a ship's cost before you allow an extra copy of that ship.  A ship may be somewhat lackluster at 41 points, but be a bit too potent at 40, when you have five on the table.
    More importantly, though, is that saying "nerf nothing" ignores even the possibility that a card or combo can be fundamentally flawed.  Trying to power up other ships to counter it results in either those becoming too powerful (necessitating other power-creeps) or those becoming hard-counters.  Both approaches were tried in 1.0, and were not, in my opinion, good options.
    Instead, I think there should be an ideal average.  Not everything will lie on it perfectly, but everything should be close.  If something is far below average, buff it.  If it's far above, nerf it.  If it simply can't work with the system, fix it.

    Handler reacted to That Blasted Samophlange in The Mandalorian [Star Wars TV series]   
    So lets look at the 1st official picture.   I want to draw close attention to the most important, but subtle detail from this picture.   Above the left eye is a small dent in the helmet, almost imperceptible, but there.   This is important because Boba Fett’s helmet had a dent in the exact same place.   
    In canon a set of mandalorian armour scoured as if by acid, was purchases by Cobb Vanth from Jawas on tatooine.   Acid tends to burn things away, possible dirt and paint and could leave things shiny as this armour is.   The dent is there for a reason I believe.   
    This official image has me, about 90% sure this armour belonged to Boba Fett, and now is owned by Cobb Vanth.   The story details seem to match up and this art depicts small and subtle clues - the dent.   That this is indeed the story we shall be getting.

    Handler reacted to Parakitor in Resistance Conversion Kit upgrade preview   
    But she doesn't spend a blank to do damage - she spends a blank to get a lock she can use to reroll the remaining dice. Combined with Finn, yeah, it's strong. But outside of that it seems only moderately helpful. I suspect Finn or Rose (or both) will be quite expensive.
    And as for why it goes Rose, remember that she is all about hope and turning a bad situation around. I think it's certainly a thematic win. Rose is cool.

    Handler reacted to Hujoe Bigs in wasn't token-stacking a thing of the past?   
    Basically the tl:dr version....
    All of these are situational though.
    Defender:Gotta go fast!
    Phantom:Use those tokens and you aren't cloaking this turn.
    Fel:All reliant on flying
    Lt Sai:Support ship tax
    Palp: See above
    Boba:That's an impossible combo, best you can do is either reinforce OR focus with all that. But with that combo you are running close to half your list, and you have to fly him close to the enemy.
    Two dice attacks are quite scary when you can't negate them completely via reinforce.

    It would be good to have the quick build format supported by the app, it could have all the prebuilt ships loaded in for you to just pick from.

    Handler reacted to BlodVargarna in FFG your app is poor quality   
    Why on earth didn’t you simply buy one of the already functioning 3rd party apps made by the community?
    1) no offline- this is a no brainer make this a priority 
    2) ridiculous issues when saving (see multiple threads on this
    3) can’t copy ships- if I want to make 3 ships with same load out, I have to enter the ship and all it’s upgrades 3 times.
    4) can’t change pilot of a particular ship after it’s been selected, if I change my mind between Wedge or Luke, I have to delete and re-enter an entire new ship  
    5) the app is slow- this is probably related to number 1- make it offline.
    6) no dials 
    7) UI is ugly and frustrating. 
    Your web app developers should be embarrassed by the terrible product they rushed out. You should be embarrassed by the terrible quality of the app and the frustration it is causing your customers. 
    Get your stuff together FFG.

    Might I recommend an actual full-length NEWS article on these very forums to cover such useful information by FFG.
