    The Future of 2nd Edition

    So the fact you say we certainly should not have expected a physical release is humorous. Why not? Its been over 18 months since any news on physical content. Ffg has been releasing new editions of several of its games lately while pumping out expansions for titles they feel they can rake in money on. To say we shouldnt have expected a physical product for a game that hasnt had one in well over a year and a half and then saying physical content releases arent dead cant be serious. How long is reasonable considering xwing, armada, ia, rebellion, rw, runebound, mom, sw lcg, netrunner lcg, lotr lcg, got lcg, l5r lcg, destiny, android lcg, arkham horror lcg and bg, the list goes on all have had physical expansions in the last 9 months. Descent is 2x that time frame.
  2. I don't want to be one of those people creating a lot of drama but with Descent's last physical release announcement being May 11, 2016 does anyone have any insight on if we'll see more physical products? I get the ap is great for generating sales of old content and great for them... but as someone who owns EVERYTHING for it I'm curious. Its been almost a year with no news of a physical product, the development of their new RuneBound Xwing-like game, if you look at Upcoming items there are a lot of items retailers are sold out of that are not ANYWHERE on their upcoming list for reprint (only a few figures awaiting reprint now), the dungeon crawl space is being MUCH more competitive. Is there a decent chance we've seen all the physical stuff we're going to? I get that for some folks that's fine and cool. This isn't an opinion of "do you want more" question but rather a does anyone have insight if we will.
  3. I think I found what you were talking about but all I can find is the X, A, B, and Y wings.
  4. Can you advise where that is?
  5. Does anyone have the AI maneuver sheets, so the cards that list the ship, actions, and maneuver based on facing? I would really really like to get AI for Tie/fo Fighters, Tie Adv. Prototypes, Tie Punishers, and Firespray-31. I saw someone did up the Firespray so I'll probably use that, but I'm not very strong in Adobe but I'd like to see what I can manage. Id also like to get some rebel and scum AI done up. I imagine there is not a repository where any of this already exists?
  6. Ohh Ohh... me too. I spent one trillion dollars on armada and got crapped on. I mean carrying that much stuff place to place, the number of runs to the car, sheesh a bird is destine to crap on you going out to the car that many times. How did you spend 1k on the game? Did you buy like 800 points of each ship. Were you planning on doing a real ship to ship reenactment of Endor? Maybe its good that you're getting out of it if you're spending 1k on like 9 ships and 3 squadrons. I get buying multiples (and I have multiples) but 1k? Crap. 3 of everything from csi doesn't even hit 1k. I don't think its FFG that crapped on you dude. It might be the guy from your credit card company in the chopper circling your house trying to collect on your bill.

    New Product news?

    Laz uve posted the same thing in every discussion on the. While i get it its kinda out dated. Thier release vs announcement schedule the last couple years has tended to overlap more. Armada they announced wave 2 before 1 hit the street, ia hoth was announced before twin suns, xwing wave 8 was announced before wave 7 hit. In all 3 product lines thier pattern has been to announce something new before the next product hits. Armada nothing, ia 2 figure packs due to hit next few weeks and nothing about what after. Xwing wave 8 was announced 6.5 mths ago and ya we have imp vets due out, but thats a mini expansion like the ia figure packs. Im just saying there is another explanation than ur they ate just reverting to thier 2012-2013 strategy.

    New Product news?

    I dont expext tfa stuff in armada of ia right now, hence having seen the movie and coming to that deterination i started speculating on a new theory consistant with a business model change.

    New Product news?

    Ok let me clarify. Im not saying there are no articles, im saying new product release news, aka hey new thing we have never mentioned before. New product announcement. The mist hunter was not first announced yesterday, it was announced July 31. Im not complaining about speed to street date or anything. All i am saying is everyone keeps theorizing that ffg is choosing to slow their release schedule or try and time announcements closer to release dates, all im doing is suggesting a different theory that fits in a business model context. That they may choose to wait to announce any new (again new not previews or spoilers) product announcements until the Asmodee NA thing goes into effect 4-1. I agree xwing still has product line up waiting to hit the street, but Armada and Imp Assault has little to no product in the pipeline that we know of

    Product news?

    Right im not saying new stuff hitting the street, im saying any new product news. The newest product news for any of the 3 sw games was xwing imp veterans. Armada wave 2 hit the street mths back and no news at all, same with IA, and xwing has wave 8 and vets... Just seems oddly quiet. Explainable sure, but its possible they are waiting until the new model is in place is all. Im not saying its 100% sure or obvious, im just saying its a possibility i havent seen anyone speculate about.

    New Product news?

    So ive been wondering why there has been a lack of news over new products from ffg, especially in the star wars product line. Except for imperial veterans in xwing, news on new products has been slim to none. No armada stuff for months, imperial assault only has 2 figure packs due out with nothing behind that, and xwing is just wave 8 and imp veterans. My original thought was episode 7 tie ins, but as we are almost a month past that there must be some other catalyst driving it. It could be they want less time from announcement to street date, or to let current products feel fresh by not giving new product news, while that could be the case, im wondering if there is a bigger more business oriented reason. As many of you know ffg becomes asmodee north america on 4-1 and starting that date they have a new set of rules about who can distribute, and who can sell, and via what medium. The radio silence, while explainable with different theories, im wondering if they are waiting for 4-1. Its possible if they announce it now current distributors might have contractual rights to order, throwing a wrench into thier more tightly controlled business model. I hope im wrong as a near 3 month new product line freeze could suck, its a reasonable theory that no one has presented.

  14. Not really at this point. People say that if u spend 100 points on squadrons, that is 1/3 of you build that is dependant on others ships and commands to activate. I personally hope the meta brings greater value to squadrons. I think they are cool, but thier reliance on your other 200 pts makes them a risk.
