    Greedyfly got a reaction from MajorWesJanson in FFG are you for real   
    I think it's about time FFG woke up to its self and stopped releasing an obvious bias to the scum faction and finally fix up some of its complete stuff ups or finally bring rebels and the empire onto the same footing. It's clear someone is smoking something illegal on the design team and has a hard on for scum. 
    Shout me down as much as you want I play all factions and if you don't think scum releases lately have been OP your in denial/ a scum only play or a WAAC player.
    The only faction to get generics with EPT , undercosted ships, undercosted EPT and undercosted crew and all effective. Enough with the bad tasting jokes hey.
    For a long time time I have championed FFG over GW but for the last year it's been getting a bit long in the tooth. I can't now with any honesty even defend FFG over GW any more for they have shown FFG up by at least trying to listen to there customer base. This has clearly not something happening at FFG with all the tournament results and the repeated calls for nurfs and fixes for the same ships endlessly on there very own forum. 
    Please FFG wake the F___ up

    Greedyfly got a reaction from Oberron in Vader in the current meta   
    Vader is still solid, yes he can have problems with multiple TLT's but if your only taking Vader of course you'll have problems. Vader with vessary with the bid D title and omega leader are a great triple treat yep the lack of autos is a problem against TLT's but in that case you could drop vessary down to the X7. Putting adaptability on Vader in a list like this gives you the option to drop down to ps 8 and have him push through his crit or up to 10 against those Edgar's. You could go a cheep carnor and just give him autos, Or even go the inquisitor.
    While it's true Vader doesn't have the best dial but gez it ain't that bad, he's not realy getting stressed. And what his dial just all of a sudden got worse? No it's a case that tie Ds are just easy buuuuuuut are predictable, but are action ecconomy specialists on easy mode. If you like the idea of running him play him enough with a solid squad that can support

    Greedyfly reacted to iamfanboy in So WHY is it that we Imperials are the weakest?   
    So I spotted that hilariously misspelled threat about how OP the Empire is, and it got me to thinking...
     
    He's not wrong.
     
    The Empire, as such, has a higher proportion of the strongest pilots in the game. All factions have strong builds, but if expressed as a percentage the Empire has 40-50% of the strongest builds, with Scum having slightly more than Rebels, but less than the Empire.
     
    You can rattle them off. Soontir. x7 Defenders. Palpshuttle. Omega Leader. Darth Vader. Whisper. Rear Admiral Chiraneau. Even our second-tier is a helluva lot better than the other faction's second tiers.
     
    So what's the problem? Why can't we do well at the top tables in Worlds, and Regionals often represent Rebels/Scum higher than Imperials? I want to hear what you guys think, but my thought is pretty simple:
     
    We're the meta.
     
    Imperials are what you have to beat because they're stronger and easier (Dark Side?), so planning to beat THEM means that you're ahead of the game. If you can do that with ships they're not intimately familiar with (ie, other Imperials), then you're even further ahead of their game.
     
    Frankly, I find myself a little disappointed by this thought. Back in my MtG days, I preferred anti-meta lists to meta lists; planning to break what the net-listers brought was far more fun than just copying the net-lists.

    Good thing then that FFG has the following text in their tournament regulations "All card interpretations

    overrule the FAQ when a mistake or error is discovered."
    I would like to hear a marshal trying to come up with any kind of rational explanation why an available upgrade is impossible to trigger..

    I'm hoping to to find a great balance with some of the existing ships available to the rebels. I'd like to not have to rely on having a close to full squad of the latest ships to be competative. Ultimately if I have too, I will succumb to buying another Arc.
    Nora with ptl,title, r2d2 and tail gunner
    Biggs r4d6 and IA
    Miranda with tlt
    This is looking like it could be a solid late game list but could suffer to Sontir and the wolf pack.

    Why not give a title that works the same as for Tie Advance but on everything. First 5 points on T-65 is free. If that is "unbalanced" then equip 1 torpedo for free. T-65 needs that little extra now. No one plays with T-65 accept with Biggs and rarely Wes and Wedge. Do it FFG. Do it.

    Greedyfly reacted to ForceM in the first game I didn't have fun   
    1. It's not an ordnance problem, it's a problem with the (too) cheap scouts with huge statline, EPT (here lies the real problem: Deadeye) and the rest of their upgrade slots.
    2. Yes it still needs skill to fly the scouts and get the needed shots, but blocking OR threatening torpedo shots next for next turn is pretty easy for 3 large bases.
    3. Even if the squad needs some skill to work, i still think the Scouts are breaking the game at the moment. They shut too many other builds that made the diversity before U-Boats down too hard. Rebels lost a lot of their competitive options overnight, and the ships really supposed to take ordnance like K, Punisher, Bomber, Y are strictly inferior to the scouts in that role. They are just a few points too cheap for what they have and can do!

    Greedyfly reacted to heychadwick in Scum and Villainy Episode 30: What’s all the fuss over Inertial Dampeners?   
    I'm just finishing this podcast.  I'm near the end and hearing you guys talk about the ID, Fly Casual, and all the discussion about tournaments.  Listening to Sable Griffon talk about how the latest rulings will keep casual players out.....I have to say that it's already happened.  I've known so many people that just won't go to tournaments for X-wing because they just aren't fun.  The type of lists you need to bring to tournaments just aren't fun to many people.  It's not that people aren't nice, but they just get sick of either having to fly a specific type of list, always face the same lists again and again, or just get tired of losing for taking what they consider a fun list.  I think the level of competition at tournaments is high enough that there are numerous people that don't have fun there.  I think the casual gamer is already excluded from the event.  A new player must edge up to play a certain type of a game if they want to go to tournaments.  New players just need to either change to become tournament players or eventually give up for not having fun.  
     
    If people think that these people are a small minority, I'll say that they are wrong.  I've known a lot of people that have dropped out of X-wing due to the tournament level game.  Weekly game night turns into people practicing for tournaments and casual gamers get edged out.  I think about 1/3 of all the people that I know that have gotten into X-wing feel this way.  
     
    I do totally agree with the Fly Casual mentality deals with you as a player and you should totally be a nice guy when it comes to tournament play.  It is a much better environment than other game systems (i.e. Warhammer).
