  1. When someone shares a list with me I can click to see the pilot cards and their card text but the upgrades are non responsive. If I don’t know what a card does I have to choose to edit the list and then go through an obtuse interface. which is a whole bunch of unnecessary taps compared to the pilot cards It would be so much simpler to just be able to click the upgrade name in the squad preview page or saved squad page and use the same type of code as the pilot card button to display the card on screen.
  2. I'm trying to assemble a complete list of all the players who managed to win an invite to coruscant. I've got all the info for the European events but the American ones are proving considerably harder. Can people who attended or know the top 8s and undefeated hyperspace players help me out by filling out the info on the live doc below. https://1drv.ms/x/s!AuDQS5CYwYXBnl3PI64OxSrXcR1U Thanks
  3. The QR code has been added to the mobile app. So that's a step in the right direction. a direct link for messaging is still a must in my opinion. right now the only way to get the permalink is to use the forum share option as follows: T-65 X-wing - Cavern Angels Zealot - 64 Cavern Angels Zealot - (41) Ion Torpedoes (6) R2-D2 (8) Inertial Dampeners (1) Afterburners (8) Servomotor S-foils (Open) (0) Total: 64/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder which is a bit awkward for sharing in messages as it's written in BB Code. all we need is access to the link at the bottom by itself.
  4. When sharing a list please include the following two options: Show a QR code on the mobile screen provide the direct link to be able to copy and paste into other apps. for now we can only share via facebook twitter and this forum. The easiest way to get the direct link is to copy it from the bottom of the forum share. Más a result my message groups are slowly being filled with PDFs when links would be a better option. the qr code would make it easier to send a list to someone who is with you and would also make tournament checkin easier as organisers could just scan in all lists.
  5. So check out this kickstarter for some cool Arkham Horror Themed deck boxes that come with some free dice https://elder-dice-unspeakable-tomes.kickoffpages.com So the truth is it-s a Cthulu themed dice kickstarter which come with a magnetic spell book case for each set. It just so happens that the spell book is the perfect size to fit somewhere around 40 sleeved cards.
  6. Well here it is ladies and gentlemen, less than one week until the most exclusive X-Wing event of all time the Coruscant invitational. More than a 1000 people competed for the chance to travel to Celebration Europe but only eight will be there. Each one of them with three lists, one for each faction, complete with the "handicapped" ship that you guys have chosen. Now we all know what list won what tournament, but what do you really know about the people who played those lists, little more than a name and in some cases even the name might have appeared to be classified. That's where I come in. One of the key focuses of my video content is to help the viewer get to know the player rather than just his list. Things like watching a player whilst deciding an important maneuver or even just seeing the small details in how he places his cards during setup can give us an insight into the way these masters think. So I hunted these guys down and proposed to them that a week before the event we organise a live chat show broadcast on YouTube with all the champions present, all have been very gracious in agreeing and making a little space in their schedule to share with you guys. Even so trying to get 8 guys across two continents to sit down at the same time was a difficult task and i managed to get them down to two separate programs. So without further ado I give you two live talk shows that will be transmitted on Sunday 10th of July and Monday 11th of July to give you the opportunity to get to know each of these champions a little more personally so that whilst your watching the developments of the Coruscant invitational you will have a few more reasons to root for them than just a flag or a list. Please feel free to come and join us in the chat as surely there will be an opportunity to take questions from the public. Prelude to Coruscant part 1: Sunday 10th of July 17:00 CEST//16:00BST//11:00EDT//08:00PDT​ Watch Here Prelude to Coruscant part 2: Monday 11th of July 20:00CEST//19:00BST//14:00EDT//11:00PDT Watch Here

  8. And as I understand it has already taken down some very competent players.
  9. Assuming that Mark Stretch and whoever his opponent is we will be featuring their game on round one of the live stream tomorrow.
  10. Hi guys, You may or may not know that I've been streaming X-Wing events from Spain for about the last year. And now finally I have some volunteers to help me repost those videos now with English commentary. These are our first try at this and feature the semi final and final from a store championship held on January 31st. Please feel free to like/subscribe and let us know what you liked/didn't like in the comments and here's hoping I can produce quite a few more of these soon. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuM1BpKQtnVW8Ws2lH7obvgA7JHUbqn0d
  11. Can anyone please confirm to me the accepted way to calculate strength of schedule as a secondary TIE breaker. I've found varying ways of calculating it but not sure which one is most correct.

  15. Yeh I get your meaning, my argument is more for the casual player who hasn't been following the marketing cycle. They go to their store one day and see new ships, and maybe pick one up, maybe another next month etc. Looking at the Wave as a whole the M3-A is the only normal price ship to these casual players, the StarViper comes at a premium and the IG-2000 and Most Wanted are big box items.
