    Hello Forums,

    The Old Guard of the Twin Cities meta is hosting and streaming a Draft tournament today. We are streaming- with commentary, overlays, and dice cam- from about 1p - 5p Central.

    World Champion finalist Kevin Leintz is playing. Big Vic, the best TO/Judge around, is running the tables. 
    The commentary will be done by multiple Store Champ winners Tim and Josh. 

    Please stop in to check us out and let us know how we're doing.

    Without question the perfect ship is the Tie Striker. 
    It is an excellent example of how less is more can lead to better gameplay. 
    Doesn't have every action in the game, mountains of health, and more than 3 upgrade slots. 
    Has serious limitations that can be compensated for with skill. 
    And is a pure joy to play. 


    All other opinions are wrong.

    Also since no one else has mentioned it, for measuring range, nubs on bases do not count but nubs on bomb templates do count.
    I've also run into a couple of people arguing that range must be measured to cardboard and not clear plastic bases, that's wrong, it's plastic base to plastic base.

    w1ndst0rm reacted to blade_mercurial in How to resolve the problem of player initiative (?)   
    X-wing Initiative system is a brilliant mechanic.  It works perfectly fine as is.  The beauty of it is that bidding for initiative is a 'decision point' that enhances the importance of intelligent list building.  If any player is worried about not getting the choice of initiative, they simply have to bid more.  Its a simple system that gives players agency and I think that is good for this kind of game.  Anyone not willing to bid has accepted the 'risk' of possibly not getting the choice of initiative.  There's give and take there that adds an intricate layer of choice there that every alternate initiative idea I've seen simply loses.
    The rule that you propose also 'punishes' the player that is currently winning.  Now, perhaps a player may have gotten ahead on points purely by luck, but if the player did deserve their advantage, by having initiative swapping kick in part way through the game, you could seriously upset that player's advantage and then they could end up losing.  That to my mind, would create far more Negative Play Experiences then it would help solve.  So for that reason, I think its a bad idea.  
    Frankly, I see no value to 'initiative swapping' (either the rule you propose or variations on it).
    My 2 cents.

    Two X-wings in the final. Not Biggs.
    And two Shadowcasters?

    No two lists were the same today.

    The Twin Cities meta, AKA high-PS turrets , has a player run tourney series every year during the off season. We have the final event at the FFGEC- because we are spoiled and because we can. Anyway, this year, we said as soon as the FAQ drops we are implementing it. IT DROPPED.
    Tune in to the RadioTCX Twitch stream this Saturday at 11 AM central to get a peek at what the new meta might look like.
    Tim and Carson will be 'casting. I will be Judging and guest 'casting.

    We can't wait to see what shows up and hope to see you online.

    Seeing as though there has been no change to the X wing, I'd say that it hasn't been saved. I mean, its kind of a mechanically inferior ship to so, so many other options.

    Has anyone mentioned flying their harpooned swarm into the enemy ships to share the splash damage? I can't wait to do that.

    It can also be up in your face though, because the opponent can fly the ship into you and a critical will set it off 
    It's a very clunky and difficult to control condition unless you can concentrate the missile and a guaranteed crit on to the target.

    So I guess that's a no, you haven't considered (and apparently refuse to consider) not flying in a tight formation with swarms, or using the harpooned condition to your advantage as a swarm player.
    It's hard to tell if the sky is falling if your head is buried in the sand.
