    Fallout 76 Thought

    Fallout 76 pretty much killed my love of the Fallout franchise. I decided to skip FFG's New California expansion and I haven't even unboxed my copy of Wasteland Warfare that I pre-ordered. It wasn't just the game being bad, but mostly Bethesda's horrible treatment of their players. OTOH, The Outer Worlds looks pretty cool. Maybe FFG can get that franchise.

    Any word on a FAQ or Errata coming?

    Does the New California expansion include replacement cards? Such as for the Agenda card that activates the wrong faction?
  3. You said nothing that requires an apology. Movement rates are an issue for many similar games, and is something that, in this case, has a trivial solution. I've always found it best to consider solutions to potential problems before playing a game if a rule seems problematic. Sometimes it turns out that the rule change isn't needed but that's much better than giving up on a game due to a mechanic that doesn't work. Remember, you're playing the game for your own entertainment. If adjusting the rules makes the game more enjoyable, then the rules should be adjusted. This is especially true in solo or co-op games. Also, keep in mind that game designers have limitations on the rules they write which individual players do not have.
  4. Two locations on the map can be up to 7 spaces apart. Therefore, if a monster that needs to be dealt with spawns, it could spawn so far away that it will take a solo investigator 3-4 turns just to walk over there, in which time another monster has probably spawned. The average distance between spawns and investigators falls dramatically as player count increases. This is why increasing the walking speed of solo investigators is a good idea. To prevent frustration and tedium of wasted turns.
  5. I was thinking something similar. It could be just a case of increasing the move speed for small player counts. Forex, if only one player a move action lets you move four space, if two players a move action lets you move three spaces. Players can get around the board quicker but won't be able to do more things.

    The Next LCG

    I was hoping for a Fallout LCG based on the Arkham one but with the addition of usable loot. (Similar to how Maximum Apocalypse does it.) At certain locations or after killing bad guys, you can draw Loot cards into your hand as you would draw a card normally. Then after the game, you can keep a certain number of loot cards as part of your deck for the next scenario. Sort of combining an LCG with a deckbuilding game.

    The vocal minority is an issue

    Of course not. I do, however, believe that the way many social media platforms are constructed encourages harassment (probably intentionally). If a system is designed to measure success by the reaction to a post; whether it's Likes, ReTweets, or # of Comments, then users will be rewarded for pushing the bounds of decent behavior just to get noticed. When I say, "if you use social media, expect to be harassed", I'm often accused of victim blaming or supporting harassment. But my intention is to condemn how social media platforms are designed to reward bad behavior. Just like how Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segments encourage people to send nasty tweets to celebrities in order to get their tweets read on the show.

    The vocal minority is an issue

    If KMT wasn't given access to a social team and actually saw all the hateful comments directed at her, then that is a pretty stunning condemnation of Disney and their failure to protect their actors. If, on the other hand, KMT's Instagram was being run by a team at Disney, then it's easy to imagine this entire incident is a publicity stunt. NOBODY is claiming that KMT was intentionally harassed by Disney. Also, please don't blame the alt-right for this harassment. We are huge Tico fans (#Ticopath), and would never do anything to KMT. How can we not love her??????!!!!!!

    The vocal minority is an issue

    There is something really fishy about this whole situation. Firstly, and most importantly, why wasn't KMT given a social media manager by Disney to filter the crappy comments? Especially after what happened to Daisy Ridley. She's a major actor in one of their biggest franchises, yet Disney can't fork over a couple grand for an assistant to handle stuff like this? Secondly, Rian Johnson goes on Twitter just hours after the announcement but doesn't offer words of support or encouragement to KMT. Instead he immediately attacks the fans. Things were so bad for KMT that she had to quit Instagram yet Johnson, her director, never even mentioned her. Finally, while she left a cryptic comment, KMT never actually stated the reason why she deleted her Instagram. But this harassment narrative is accepted as fact. This looks to me like some fans are using KMT as a weapon to attack other fans. And that's just as bad as the original harassment IMO.

    2.0 Design Spaces

    On thing I was hoping to see was an improved setup system like they have in SW Legion. With different cards dealt randomly and the ability for players to veto some of them. The cards in Legion are of three types: deployment zones, victory conditions, and special environment rules. You end up with one of each. While it might not be fair for tournaments, it would be great for casual games.

    X-Wing 2.0 - batteries required.

    Will the Quick Build cards be in the conversion kit? I heard that they weren't and they didn't show any in the unboxing. However, in the unboxing Alex said pretty clearly that there's no need to buy any of the 2.0 version of the ship packs unless you want the improved models.

    EA abandoning battlefront 2

    I watched the video but I'm still unclear on how what's happening with SW Battlefront 2 any different from what already happened to SW Battlefront 1. I'm assuming that they are stopping work on SWBF2 in order to start work on SW Battlefront 3.

    Chained actions and difficulty decreasing upgrades

    The rules aren't going to clarify this as the restriction is from the App. If a ship has a red linked action and the App doesn't let you equip this card, then it doesn't matter how the card works in this situation. IOW, any ship with a Focus->Red Boost will already have a white boost and, thus, be unable to equip Engine Upgrade. For there to be a confusion, you would need a ship that has a red boost/barrel roll and also have a linked action into a red boost/barrel roll. I don't think any ships will have this setup.

    Stop the sadness ;)

    I'm not gonna let you bring me down. My logic is impeccable. I haven't been this excited for Armada since the ISDs first came out. Just a few more weeks ......

    Stop the sadness ;)

    The Hyperspace Report was the best thing to ever happen to Armada. Here's why ... -The Hyperspace Report introduced X-Wing 2.0 -X-Wing 2.0 added Force tokens and Calculate tokens to support Jedi and Droid pilots. -Jedi and Droid pilots were big in the Clone Wars -X-Wing 2.0 is getting Clone Wars ships! -Armada is getting Clone Wars ships! Two new factions with a huge variety of possible ships. FFG can't announce these ships for Armada simply because they want to announce it for both games at the same time (as announcing one would spoil the other).
