    force kin reacted to Lace Jetstreamer in Dear Devs: How to do patch notes   
    If this game was doing well in sales, they would not have created the hyperspace format and banned 90% of the cards.  If this game was selling well, it would be in the top 5 sales list according to ICV2.  If this game was selling well, they would have created patch notes.  You should also lookup what 'patents' are because you don't seem to understand how to use the word correctly.

    Resistance cant throw 12 red dice all at I6 with no lock requirement, bullseye requirement, or range requirement.
    If you’re great enough to consistently pull off Proton Rockets with I3 ships every game, then you could probably show up to a tournament with a naked HWK and a ham sandwich as your list and still win.

    I do like the idea of new obstacles. I'm guessing they're some kind of mini-nebula gas thingies. And I'm looking forward to finding out how Buzzdroids work.

    Customer service and player retention, thats why. It costs them almost nothing to send out a replacement and in doing so they assure a happy and engaged user of their products.

    I think it came out rather well. 
     
    Nobody can say it doesn't have character. If and when this thing finally falls apart, ill send a letter to FFG. They gotta hook me up after seeing what a great job I did in trying to retain my model. I'm clearly not taking anybody for a ride here, in fact I don't think it would even be possible to ride in this - even given the elastic conception of physics used in Star Wars. 
     
    Just imagine how bad it's gonna feel losing to this thing.

    This sounds like you're trying to talk about power level, and I don't think the complaints about Nym are relating to his power level but to whether he's fun to play against or not.

    It's like trying to argue that a vegan should eat beef because it's been well cooked.

    force kin got a reaction from Vontoothskie in How to sell a collection   
    I've got an embarrassment of x wing ships. Some of them painted - most of these painted poorly. Some with components broken off. In terms of upgrade cards I've got quite a few additional upgrades I purchased separately (crack shot, for advanced title thing, etc) but no ships past the vx-100 or whatever that thing is.  Plus I've got a pretty good assortment of tournament swag. Acrylics and alt art. 
    I've been pretty put off by the recent direction the game has taken. At first I was holding out hope for things to settle down but it seems quite obvious the glory days were years ago. I really don't have much attraction to a star wars game where none of the best units are recognizable. Plus the power creep is a bit silly. 
    Anywho - I figure I better unload my stuff before everyone else realizes the same. 
    I live in a small city in Canada. There's not a huge market for stuff here. What's the best way to get a decent return on this stuff? Parcel it out individually - break it down to individual components and upgrades, or try and sell the whole works as one lot, maybe to someone online?  
    What do you guys think?  Worth the hassle of parting it out and probably shipping a million parcels or should I look yo unload the works in one fel swoop and get less money ?

    This is not a full list, as it s missing Proton torpedoes at least (I tried maximizing Kylo chances in my Naboo list and ended up with Backdraft and Proton-equipped Tomax paired with Kylo-piloted Upsilon). Also Guidance chips is a solid choice to get a crit on a TIE/D with ordnance.

    force kin reacted to AllWingsStandyingBy in New blog article out - There's nothing wrong with the Jumpmaster   
    Well, despite your click-bait title I read your article anyways.

    In my opinion, you are quite wrong.  Your basic argument as to why the Jumpmaster is not broken is as follows:

     

    You argue that it's up to players to stop "resisting change" and "adapt and move on" by accepting the Jumpmaster (which I assume means either (1) learn to beat it, (2) learn to fly it, or (3) learn to love losing to it).  Either way, this is ridiculous, as you cite several other ships that were meta-defining and then faded away: Dash, Whisper, etc.  What you fail to mention is that Jumpmasters have been meta-definining and dominant for well over a year and a half of tournaments, since Wave 8 now through Wave 10 (and all the mini-sets in between, like HotR).  This is despite Jumpmaster builds receiving four specific nerfs along the way, and there's nothing in the CROC or Wave 11 that yet suggests Jumpmaster builds that are doing well now won't continue to do well.

    So, your argument is basically: "Eh, the meta is always evolving and has always evolved, get used to it."  However, what this fails to acknowledge is that the Jumpmaster's dominance has been different in kind, not just in degree to other past dominant ships.  And, since Wave 8 dropped, the meta hasn't really evolved that much, it's just been different flavors of Jumpmaster dominance: first Triple Torp Scouts, then Dengaroo, then Parattani, and now Dengar/Tel, Dengar/Bossk, and Dengar/Fenn with Torp Scouts still making semi-regular appearances.

    I've been playing competitively for five years now.  I've seen Howl Swarms in all their ferociousness, Dual Falcons, BBBBZ, Whisper, Fat Han, Super Dash, RAC, Dual IGs, and all the other meta-defining ships rise and fall.  I've never seen anything like the Jumpmaster's degenerative dominance before.  It is unlike anything we have seen, and simply "adapting" to it means basically learning to embrace the Jumpmaster vs Jumpmaster metagame as we all continue to play Jumpaster: The Miniatures Game.  Until FFG comes along and cleans up this big mistake of a chassis, it will never go anywhere.
