  1. The perfect second crew for Lowhhrick?

    It such a great crew card - frankly in my opinion it will be nuts on a many more rebel ships.
  2. What wing is your wing?

    The funny thing is Miranda was already here when Aces were at the top of the food chain. The problem is Sabine Wren crew card - for 2 pts you get card that makes bombs just too good. But I won't talk anymore because OP clearly forbade talking about balance related things.
  3. What wing is your wing?

    Ace wing. I loved those games with Soontir Fel, each game was on the razor edge. One false move could spelt doom for careless player. Games were exciting and really fun to watch. You were trying to block Aces with some blockers, and Aces were trying to line up good shots. That was the best time of X-Wing in my opinion. Also arcs mattered.
  4. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    Let me just say that this post proved that there is no sense in talking with you. On this forum I've never seen so many ridiculous statements cumulated in one single post in a long time.
  5. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    I got data that are measurable, I am not basing my opinion around hunch or some meaningless anecdotical evidence. Also I suggest to check this out: https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/39858/top-5-non-collectible-miniature-games-fall-2017 In the light of those things saying that X-Wing is dying is, well, stupid. I think you don't realize how ridiculous your statement is. What is more probable - that I had incredible streak of good luck in the span of one month or that I just flew well? So you basically just stick fingers into your ears and start to scream "I can't hear you!" like a 6 year old kid? Good to know. I am good at X-Wing, not some imaginary game that exists only in your head. And no, my list didn't have Miranda, Nym, Ghost, Fenn, Harpoons, TLT or any bombs. Here it is: https://geordanr.github.io/xwing/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v4!s!251:30,229,-1:-1:-1:;277:205,21,69:59:-1:;196:27,-1,3,254:39:15:&sn=Poe %26 Ezra %26 Lowhhrick&obs=coreasteroid0,core2asteroid0,core2asteroid2 And again, what is your point? It is tournament, there will be always people with 1-5 record, despite the meta, it is harsh nature of any competitive event. Also there always will be some unhappy people - anecdotical evidence is not an evidence.
  6. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    Learn to read with comprehension - I didn't say i hate forum, I said it is full of irritating idiots - those are two separate statements. Still there are plenty of funny and intelligent people whose posts I like to read and interact with.
  7. Are Rebels Any Good?

    People still dont understand that Miranda would be completely fine if TLT and Sabine crew cards were balanced. Those 2 cards are the problem, not Miranda herself. Also look at meta from a few years ago - back when cancer known as bombs and ordnance was not as imbalanced as it is now. Miranda was there but Aces and other arc based ships were in the good spot. Unfortunately cries of nerf-herders: "OMG bruh Soontir OP!!!" or "We need ordnance NOW, because bombs are such a fun bro!!!" prevailed.
  8. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    Haha, man as it stands it should be told to people who maintain that X-Wing is dead. Because they as far from adapting, improving or enjoying this game as they could be. X-Wing is in a fine spot and people have a blast playing it, which is proven by main events' attendance.
  9. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    What is your point here? Data is available everywhere. Just check events sites which informed you how many places or tickets were left for players to buy. And on the contrary there is a lot of respectable, talented players for which X-Wing is in completely fine place and who don't even bother to check this forum, because let's face it, it is infested with balance whine and inept balance ideas made by people who got no idea about how to play and win in this game. Major Juggler, with all respect, is not an arbiter when it comes to X-Wing - he is just a guy who dislikes X-Wing and tries to promote his house rules under the invalid name of "community mod". Also I don't need to hear opinions of other people to have opinion if X-Wing is in fine place or not. Don't want to brag or anything but in last regional tournament and SOS I ended up in top 16 and top 8 respectively, with 5-1 result in swiss in both tournaments. I think I know sufficiently enough about this game to form my own opinion if it is in fine place or not. Then I suggest to you to participate in at least one competitve event, because your opinion is just completely unreasonable. Because people in events, even more competitve ones, more often than not are one of the most friendly, funny and nice people to share time with. This opinion shows how much of an armchair expert you are, and frankly it shows you got no idea about competitve side of X-Wing.
  10. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    I don't know if you just like to stir up things or really think what you write here down. Because I see you on the Vassal all the time. Do you whine just for the sake of whining? I don't think sane human being would spend huge amounts of time playing game that he dislike or think that it is bad.
  11. X-Wing a Dead Game?

    Well then, you are exception of the norm. Events are sold out all over the world, SOS tournaments are setting new records for attendance, in my local community X-Wing in popularity is next to MtG. People love X-Wing. I can only laugh when I see threads like this - because it is as far from reality as it can be. Let's face it - this forum gives distorted view of reality, because it is full of laser-brain nerf herders and scrubs. Meanwhile most X-Wing enthusiasts just play the game, attend the tournaments and don't bother to posts in this cesspool known as an X-Wing forum.
  12. Regional Results thread.

    I just get to Top 16 of Warsaw Regional. There are 96 participants. From more interesting things: my gaming buddy also get into Top 16 using Oicunn crewed by BoShek, Intelligence Agent and Courier Droid with Kylo as wingman.
  13. Different OL build question

    Poe says "Hi"
  14. Rating all the ships

    No. Even Corran does not save E-Wing. it is this recurring myth that Corran is very good pilot and thanks to that E-Wing is good. It is not - in current meta E-Wing is just bad. Corran double tap ability have been already surpassed by Quickdraw & Dengar long time ago.
  15. Dear FFG: the Ghost and Miranda

    You are wrong. I am against any changes, let the meta settle in. As newest examples show Howard's aces are becoming a thing hard countering Ghosts. Also, Miranda is not a problem if you know how to fly against her. The fact that there are not so many posts opposing "brilliant" game changing ideas is simple - good players more often than not ignore this forum, a lot of posts are not about better gameplay, tactics or list building (with few exceptions). Most of the posts are constant whining put forth by players that do not understand this game, yet want to be a developers and change game to their tastes. In my LGS are about 10 players, no one with the exception of me, visits this forum, it is waste of time for them.
