  1. Has anyone made any blank technology cards so we could come up with some homebrew designs?
  2. You know what would be a real good expansion option? Flagship IIs
  3. I just took the information from the poster. So I assume you were able to find it? Post up a different ship to find then.
  4. Time to play "Where's Starship" (sort of like Where's Waldo) Starship to look for The Great Fox from Star Fox Star Fox Team, 890 meters I rearranged it from franchise, faction, ship class, and size to ship class and franchise, followed by faction and size.
  5. ^nuff said. Now some might say that X-wing has too many supply chain problems to allow extended to be the format for the ships but in that case FFG needs to streamline their supply chain or be a little more lenient on what models can be use for what (i.e. allowing a Resistance Falcon model to act as a Rebel Alliance Falcon as long as the cardboard and dials match the card). IMHO changing the points for the format only just to make it competitive really points out the flaws with the format. As I said before if they have problem models don't ban the modoels ban the pilots or upgrades.
  6. then why is it still garbage?
  7. It should have been an LCG. Well while I am not happy about another FFG living game getting the plug pulled, I didn't want this game to do so well because I didn't want randomized packs to be featured in later games, especially how we have them in just about every game now these days coughEAcoughBattlefrontcough2cough Thing is this lesson has been demonstrated even before Disney got their hands on it.
  8. Team Covenant did a podcast episode about it and Crabbok made a video. They are trying to look for the silver lining but in reality there is none.
  9. The only thing $tar War$ caters to is Money. Good Science Fiction franchises don't die off just because there is nothing new made. Dune has a new movie coming up, Firefly still has plenty of fans despite the best efforts of FOX. I don't want to see it die off, but I do think the mouse needs to be starved, instead you still contribute to the gluttony of the soulless media corporations that consume everything around. They don't want to make things good or what people want they want mindless people to consume "service" and then get excited for new "service".
  10. Do I need to say anymore Most of the interactive? Well I guess the App will never get improvements.
  11. Just like the new movies don't make the prequels any good, the new stuff doesn't make the old movies bad, but here is the thing, you cannot make anything enjoyable of the franchise unless you get the blessing (mainly through exorbitant tribute) from these IP holders, and they don't care about making anything enjoyable or good, they only care about the money. Any project that had actual passion behind it is threatened by all this new consumer content which isn't worth the price they are demanding, heck you don't even have to be selling it you can make it for free just out of passion and then get slapped by a stack of papers from their army of lawyers. Case & Point see below. So yes, this new stuff is ruining the franchise and those that enjoy it are just easy marks who still feed this monster which needs to die of starvation. So yes the new content is ruining the enjoyment of the franchise and the fans of this unworthy content are keeping it going. Yep this is keeping me and many others from enjoying the franchise.
  12. The one movie from Disney I enjoyed, not as a story before the first movie but more like some sort of high production value fanfic that makes any X-wing, Armada, Legion, Imperial Assault match plausible. Dark Forces still has the better story.
  13. I still like the Eclipse even if that is considered Legends. That being said Legends is now way better than Canon and that is including the Vong. Speaking of Legends getting back into Empire at War and looking at mods such as Thrawns revenge and there is a new Remake (Awakening of the Republic is still my favorite). Speaking of Dreadnought the classic Dreadnought is common in this game.
  14. Should be 50 points per model and allows you to "spawn" them on the table the same way Palpatine did just by raising them from the ground.
  15. Movies, stories, TV Series, just about anything that involves media. The only thing Hollywood know how to make is money and pandering political statements. Other than that they make worthless garbage, to the point where the industry is no longer worth supporting anymore. Perhaps the movie making and film industry would be best served if more of the production and management is moved out of S. Cal.
  16. Star Trek Discovery, The Hobbit movies, and Primarius Marines. Seems ruined enough for me. At least to the point where I am not interested in the continuation of those stories.
  17. I'd prefer this one. okay it isn't a parody but this was before the announcement of Disney+.
  18. Yeah it is tough seeing all the franchise depart from their golden age into well beyond their prime. Heck your name reminds me of a similar property. In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only retcon But yeah, Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, there are so many properties that got ruined because in order to make profit, there has to be something new. But people want their nostalgia back so they just go to previously established franchises instead of making new ones, many of those already had a satisfying conclusion and to add more would just throw away the old franchise. As for new properties, well the demand simply outpaces the supply, so when the demand outpaces what can be produced things like Game of Thrones happen. Now that is nothing new with TV but back when episodes were only in time slots reruns and flashback filler episodes were used to fill in the slot, but with everything on demand that is just not possible. This is why when I see more hype, more marketing, a massive advertising budget *******, I often look the other way because simply the part of the market is not to make a good product but to convince others that it is a good product. The product that sells itself simply fails.
  19. Just because something is worse doesn't make something better. Lowering the bar is just another fallacy
