    SwWhiskeyTears87 reacted to Tybrid in Is there a plan for creating judges?   
    Speaking as someone who does the judging for X-wing on a fairly regular basis - We got this. Stop complicating it. X-Wing draws several hundred people to any larger event, and they still get run just fine. The FAQ covers any issues, and anything the FAQ doesn't cover is handled in the most common sense way possible, while keeping in mind that FFG and OP write in conversational English, and as such, usually the most common sense and least amount of twisting is what was intended.

    SwWhiskeyTears87 reacted to Krynn007 in Norra Wexley - Ability   
    Well you are wrong. The majority here has presented you evidence from everything fr experience to graphs to show you how wrong you are. Like it or not I'm just stating true facts. Nora's ability is pretty **** good. As fickle said on its own, it's Meh, but with the right upgrades it's very deadly.Is 3p0 crew any good against wedge? Or tailgunner? By your standards something like rebel captive is bad. Your not seeing the big picture.
    What's your thoughts on vessery, good or bad?
    In all honesty if you can't see that, then thats your lose. Your missing out in something that works very well, a great ship, and fun too. All of your examples have been very poor imo az to why it's not that great.
    If 3po was so great then why aren't we seeing him more? He was hot for awhile, but really he's not seen as much as before.
    I've read all your posts, and tbh none of them hold any value. You also said you need two actions to make her ability work. Most of the time that's what fels doing. His ability is only active if he takes a stress, and like Nora hes usually using ptl. Ptl has become an auto include on fel, just as it has on Nora. That's why he's so good.
    You also try to use norra getting a stress as a reason why she's not so good Well that's said for many ships. If fel uses ptl, then gets stressed from r3a2 he's dead in the water, sure he can get a focus for every stress, but if he has 5 stress he's pretty well going to die next round or two. If aggressors get another stress while using ptl, again not looking too good for them. Coran he becomes very predictable etc etc, stress hurts lots of popular builds not just Nora
    Plus the fact your using Horton as an example of a good ability? If he's so good where is he in the meta? He's never been all that good since day 1. He's not bad, he has a decent ability, but it's not almighty, but again by your logic he should be top tier.
    I don't think I'm a great player, but with multiple store championship wins, multiple tournament wins/rank top 4, and top 8 at regionals (maybe have won if didn't have to leave after making cut). Doesn't always mean I'm Right, but I like to think I have a small clue what I'm talking about.
    Tell you what. Use her with biggs. Put ptl, tailgunner, r2d2 on Nora, and r4d6 with integrated astromech on biggs and fill the squad with whatever, then come back and say she's no good. Unless your really terrible at flying it, you should see some pretty good results and maybe will have a different opinion.
    As it is now your just going to argue no matter what numbers or logic anyone here gives you. People have even shows Your graphs on the % of her attacks. Your right, and the whole forum is wrong. That's how it seems. I really don't think you've even tried her. If you have, you may have had the wrong upgrades on her. once you give her a few games (and not just one) then come back and present your findings. As it now you have presented no logical reason except for your own opinion, based off what you "think" is a bad ability, which many here has disproven with actual evidence. They have shown you the actual numbers, all you so is argue because it seems your the type of person who thinks his opinion is all there is

    SwWhiskeyTears87 reacted to DashBarrelRendarRoll in So, how is the ARC?   
    I'm far from a good player, in fact I'm fairly abysmal, but the ARCs are very easy to fly and it's so much fun changing a Focus result into a Crit.
    There's are no bad outcomes with Gunner Braylen. Oh I hit you? Have a stress and some damage. Oh I missed? GUNNER! Have some damage and even more stress.
    I brought the Moustache, Norra and Braylen to a 32 player tournament. Never played them before - in fact I bought them the day before. I went 2 - 3 and came 17th. Better players (and trust me that's 90% of the playerbase) could get much better results.
    A friend brought Norra, Braylen (Kyle Katarn instead of Gunner) and Thane. We pretty much agreed that the Moustache is needed even if he goes down in the first pass; it gives the ARCs a chance to do their thing. There's nothing more demoralising than going into a round having only taken out Biggs. The other two can just fly away.
    On that, don't be afraid to keep flying away. No stressed target likes to turn round and follow a target throwing out free Crits like they're going out of fashion while one keeps regening and the others stressing you up the wazoo.
    Most fun I've had in this game. They look stunning too.

    I honestly have to say the ARC-170 has become my new favorite ship. We had a wave 9 release tournament in which I won flying Nora, Braylen & the Mustached Superhero Biggs. Seeing lots of aces neutered by Braylen was amazing for me and uber frustrating for my opponents. Love these ships and Fickle thanks for inspiring the zeal I have for them.

    Real life bird watchers must be laughing at Pokemon Go players ... they were walking around looking at cute little animals before it was cool.
     
    It saddens me a bit when I read how excited people are to go outside (sometimes with their kids) just to catch Pokemon. Yes, it's great they are going outdoors, experiencing nature, meeting people, exercising, etc. But the fact it took a cutesy mobile game to achieve this doesn't speak highly of our society.
     
    There are infinity plus awesome things to see and do in the natural environment, there are people to meet in every nook and cranny of this globe, 'the outside' is often just a few steps away for us .. but we seemed to have no interest until a game cam long that 'encourages' this exploration.

    SwWhiskeyTears87 got a reaction from Punning Pundit in So what happened that caused FFG to create a banned list?   
    I will never forget back in the day when I was a TO for a little known game called Raw Deal. We had about 15 regulars who came to our tournaments. One guy in particular was tearing it up with his deck the league before our tournament. Well one of my friends played him first round and the guy played the same exact cards, the same exact way, first turn. You might be saying well this isn't anything special, all of them were unique. So my friend mentioned this in passing, I walked over to where he was playing next round and sure enough, same cards, same turn, played in the same manner. Now I knew something was fishy, so after the round was over I politely mentioned that you could ask for cut your opponents deck. Well when his next opponent said he wanted to cut his deck, Cheater Dude flew off the handle. After that he finished out of the cut going a massively awesome 2-4. Shortly after, lies were made, emails sent and I was replaced as TO by Cheater. So yeah cheaters stink!
