  1. Let's just do single-elimination tournaments! Screw MOV; Timed Rounds; ID's; Modified Wins/Losses and the likes and offer more byes. Round of 64; Round of 32; Sweet 16; Elite 8; Final 4; Championship Game. Like the NCAA!

    I translated it. They are all an advertisement for an online Korean Casino site.

    This is why we can't have nice things!
  4. His action of placing the Decimator dial all the way across the board after he flipped it, as if he was making sure that his opponent saw the maneuver that was on the dial, looks like a subconscious response to his shady dial handling. Especially since he didn't flip with Advanced dial and "show" it to his opponent.
  5. I agree. I too bought into the first Kickstarter and the functionality of the mat is awesome but the bag was too short.
  6. I think "multiple choice" cards would be awesome. Think of a card where, at a specific time, you were able to pick from two or three abilities printed on a singe card. Or even a card where you rolled a red die and the action was based on what you rolled - Hit = Action A; Crit = Action B, etc, etc. This opens up a lot of new possibilities.
  7. Just to clear up any confusion... Before creating a new thread about the Dual Card, I actually did my due-diligence and read through the entire original article posting (6-pages at the time of my reading) as well as the ninja'd post (8 comments at the time of my reading). If you need a reference, thats when conversation started about whether or not you could tractor beam your own ship for greater maneuverability. There was little to no discussion, at that time, about the actual functionality of that card. Only then did I decide to create the new post. So, when you say, "for the last 90+ minutes," I'm sure it can be agreed upon that the timeframe is relative to when I read the thread vs. when you read the thread.
  8. With the card name being "Adaptability," I've got my money on the rule being that you must verbally call an adjustment (-1/+1) of your Pilot Skill and turn the card to the appropriate side at the beginning of each Planning Phase before setting dials.
  9. I primed mine in black, dry brushed with necron compound, shaded with Nuln Oil, and highlighted with Leadbelcher. I then painted all of the lenses with black and covered them with Ardcoat. Google "Imperial Probe Droid Sixth Scale" as reference. That model has some "panels" and "buttons" painted red. They make the figure stand out a little more.
  10. I love how a single misspelling (or autocorrect) has completely redefined a card. Go Guidance Chimps!

  12. I've spend just over $1600.00 in ships alone. To get a True Cost, I'd have to factor in the PlayMats, tokens, Maneuver Templates, KickStarter Campaigns, Battlefoam, Plano Boxes, card plastics, binders, etc. I'm not sure I'd be willing to put the time in to make that calculation. Either way, I don't rationalize my X-Wing spending. It really doesn't need justification. It's a hobby, it's something that I have fun participating in and I don't have to sacrifice anything to stay active in x-wing.
  13. Captain Kagi — Lambda-Class Shuttle 27 Emperor Palpatine 8 Ship Total: 35 Zertik Strom — TIE Advanced 26 Predator 3 Advanced Targeting Computer 1 Twin Ion Engine Mk. II 1 TIE/x1 0 Ship Total: 31 Carnor Jax — TIE Interceptor 26 Push the Limit 3 Autothrusters 2 Stealth Device 3 Royal Guard TIE 0 Ship Total: 34 How hilarious would this be? No range bonuses, no focus or evade and no target locks where you want them! Probably not super competitive but should be fun to play. I might run this at a tournament tomorrow.
  14. OK, so here's something to toss around. If I replaced the Scyks's with K's, knowing that Razzi will be 48pts (taking off Houndstooth), which pilots do you use and how do you kit them? Black Sun Ace — Kihraxz Fighter 23 Predator 3 or Black Sun Ace — Kihraxz Fighter 23 Glitterstim 2 or Cartel Marauder — Kihraxz Fighter 20 Glitterstim 2 Hull Upgrade 3
  15. I don't mean to be a wet blanket here... I know you got the okay from the TO, but will the other players be displeased that you'll be running cards that they won't have access to? Naw, it's cool. See below. That's OK. I'm really not looking to go to the tourney to win. They're giving out a Summer kit and I already won a Summer Tournament. I really just want to go and use the new ships. We have a good group of players and I know they would appreciate being able to play against some Wave VII before it hits the masses.

  18. I've been playing around on the 'ol Squad Builder and came up with this for a YV-666 build Latts Razzi — YV-666 33 Gunner 5 K4 Security Droid 3 Weapons Engineer 3 Engine Upgrade 4 Hound's Tooth 6 Cartel Spacer — M3-A Interceptor 14 "Mangler" Cannon 4 Stealth Device 3 "Heavy Scyk" Interceptor (Cannon) 2 Cartel Spacer — M3-A Interceptor 14 "Mangler" Cannon 4 Stealth Device 3 "Heavy Scyk" Interceptor (Cannon) 2
  19. I was able to acquire one of each from Wave VII via a friend who went to Gen-Con and there's a non-sanctioned tournament at our FLGS this weekend where I can pretty much guarantee that I will be the only one there with access to Wave VII. I've already got the go-ahead from the TO to use Wave VII, but now the question is, what do I run? I would love to run a YV-666 build just for the sheer shock value, but I'm also an Imperial player at heart so using the Punisher would be cool too. If you had this opportunity, what would you fly? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  20. Dark Curse and Backstabber are my favorite TIE Pilots to use outside of a swarm. They're my "go-to" when I have points to fill in my Imperial squads - Dark Curse over Backstabber if I only have room for 1.
  21. Always Evade unless there is no return fire, then focus. Also, when in doubt, K-Turn!
  22. So, if they bring in First Order and Resistance, will First Order be synonymous and usable in comjuction with the existing Imperial and the Resistance with the existing Rebels. They wouldn't release them as two new separate factions, would they?
