    If every ship is roughly "fair" then the factions with more should be stronger as a result. Alternatively, if ship balance is an imperfect moving target then the factions with more ships have more chances of either getting an underpriced/overpowered ship and factions with fewer are impacted more by one of their few options being overpriced/underpowered. Neither of which sound like a good thing to me. These hyperspace rosters for the original factions aren't far off from what I was hoping for eventually, I'm just more concerned that these new factions are getting launched into an environment in which they start disadvantaged. It feels like this just defeats the entire purpose of the hyperspace format.

    There's no rational reason to play a new faction unless there's a broken list because the older factions have twice the options, Scum's inadequacies were largely perceived rather than real, and new players get extra hosed by options unavailable to them unless they track down discontinued product. Basically everything that made extended a trash fire of a format got ported into hyperspace.

    The hyperspace changes pretty much killed any enthusiasm I had for the new factions. Yay, Extended Jr.

    God, the disrespect. I'm taking this 200 point Supernatural list because I (correctly) believe no one.

    I will say, though, I got some perverse satisfaction from randomly spinning Kylo's dial every turn and still being in a mostly fine position.

    Unpopular Opinion Thread

    The last year or so of 1.0 basically didn't count because the game was so degenerate.

    Here's my hot sports opinion. Variance isn't that bad unless you mindlessly joust because all you know is hyper modified dice on 360 no scope turrets.

    This little discussion just furthers my theory that people were basically playing 2 different games in 1.0 X-Wing. Players like @Sunitsa or @baranidlo came here to play a card game where the outcome was determined by upgrade combinations and nigh guaranteed dice results. It seems like I came here to play a game of positioning where decisions on the table matter more. It might be why they aren't happy with 2.0 as it is a very different beast. Not putting a value judgment on it, people can like what they like. I just find it interesting.

    Hyperspace may be the best X-Wing has been in a long time. It's rare that I finish a day of tournament play and just want to keep going.
