    Yeah, mine too! I tried using very hot water, soaking the affected panels for a while. Once they are warm and malleable, I bent them straight (gently!). The first try, they just reverted straight back to bent... The second time, I set up a jig to hold them straight until they cooled. This gave me a much better result. Looking at them now you'd almost think they were perfectly straight!

    If it's Avenger then the unspoiled Captain upgrade is Needa, if it's Accuser then it's pre-promotion Piett.

    Yes that's not too far away at all. I'm still a little surprised how it seems that different people get different responses. I have not been given a date, just that as soon as it arrives it will ship out. I was told I would get free overnight delivery once it is in stock, so I guess that's something.....

    @Dusksong, I guess we won't really know what's more effective until we've all got a few games under our belts. For now it's just great theory crafting and having the rules while we wait for everything to ship.
     
    @clontroper5, Do not underestimate the power of the Rebellion's fighters in anti-cap mode. With very little squadron defence the Vics will suffer the death of a thousand paper cuts while you try to chase down that last corvette... Of course, I hope the thousand paper cuts won't take a thousand turns as we'll only have six!

    "If line of sight between two squadrons is obstructed,
    those squadrons are not engaged even if at distance 1 of
    each other, though they can still attack each other."
     
    Very interesting...

    wampabait reacted to RedSquadronK in Interesting Rules from the RRG   
    Read through the Rules Reference guide and noticed a few little rules that piqued my interested and thought I'd share for discussion:
     
    -If, after 6 rounds, both players tie on points the 2nd player wins.
    -You can premeasure your ship movement with the maneuver tool, but once you have put the guides of the maneuver tool into the base you are committed to that path. I can see this becoming important/annoying in tournament play.
    -During setup it says players place 6 obstacles, but it doesn't specify type. Hypothetically you could play with only 6 Stations, though that would require both players to own 3 Core sets (or FFG allow "proxy" obstacles).
    -During setup, "Squadrons must be placed within distance 1-2 of a friendly ship and MAY BE PLACED OUTSIDE OF DEPLOYMENT ZONES." (Emphasis clearly mine.) So you can start your slow B-Wings distance 2 ahead of everything else!
     
    Any other neat little rules people have noticed?

    Definitely not 2 hit, 2 crit, 2 crit & hit, 2 blanks. Old images will be my death... It's the VSD cards all over again! Thanks guys.

    Interesting that you were quick to point out 'she', but in the in the very next sentence it reverts to 'he'. Obvious typo, but which one is correct? I don't care which gender Echo is, but it would be nice to see a few more female pilots... What I do care about is consistency. Sort it out FFG!

    wampabait reacted to Joe Boss Red Seven in The Rebellions BEST Ship Is: ______   
    Which is EXACTLY what I wanted from everyone... in the first place.

     
    "Say guys; which is the best ship?"
    I sez.
     
    The relevant situational Day-Tah which automatically comes with an identifying response... well... I could give a F*#% less about that  because I ALREADY KNOW about it.
     
    I want to hear (read) what my buddies have to say specifically about a ship type, you see.
    I will know what they are talking about immediately.
    They will know that I know what they mean too.

     
    Because we are Serious Wingers.

     
    Thus and here to fore: Cool Winger Bro anybody who participated in this topic say; answered: "Hey Boss, Uhhh... I think TIE Bombers are the best Imperial ship."
     
    I know he(she) likes to blast a Rebel-Ass with Bombs,  is likely a heavy hitter player, rather than a tip toeing sneaky sneak player, and wants things to go BOOM, sooner rather than later! Now I am going to also assume they know there are other ships that can go BOOM right fast too, but they like Bombers the most.

     
    See how easy it is?

     
    Rules Lawyers and Rivet Counters... they complicate what is dead simple and they just ain't no fun at all at parties are they?

     
    You are not to assume that I am calling you a rules lawyering rivet counter.

    wampabait reacted to Vorpal Sword in Why is the decimator more expensive than the yt-2400?   
    Once more, with feeling: you're focusing on the "have to buy" part, rather than the "if you want" part. There is no reason whatsoever that anyone needs three copies of Advanced Sensors, so simply not buying them was and is an option.
    There are lots of viable B-wing builds without Advanced Sensors, and lots of viable Rebel builds without B-wings, so no one needs a 1:1 ratio between B-wings and Advanced Sensors.
