    Kentucky Fried Ewok reacted to BigBadAndy in 2.0: Are you in or are you out?   
    Right now, I'm definitely out, although I'm trying to be open minded about it.  
    Some of the things being stated as pluses of 2.0 I simply don't see.  I can't see how it is in any way a simpler game.  I couldn't even get through watching the Covenant video of a game.  And problems they are fixing I either didn't see as problems (barrel roll?) or I only incidentally care about (the tournament meta).  Frankly, as someone stated earlier in the thread they aren't steering it towards a more Star Warsy experience they are just changing the tournament meta.  It will still end up being a few degenerate strategies involving unintentional uses of pilots no one has heard of combined with tactics never seen in a Star Wars film.  Which is fine - but why am I paying another $40-$400 for that?  I like the idea of the app, but unless it is done really well it could be a misery.  And I am just not seeing the advantage of swapping out my old paper for new paper and tossing out all my cool extras like my storage solutions and acrylic maneuver templates for the thrill of having only marginally modified new ones.  So yeah, I'm looking at playing 1.0 at home with friends using my new but already pretty substantial collection.

    Kentucky Fried Ewok reacted to Chucknuckle in This might not be nice to say, but...   
    I have been playing since the core set released, and I can count on one hand the number of 'standard games' I have played. There is a sizeable portion of the player base who has no interest in playing tournament games or following the tournament meta. Some of us just like to play Star Wars with our Star Wars ships and will do crazy stuff like take a whole day to play an 800 points game, or spend an evening playing a 200 point game, or whatever. So the number of upgrade packs required to play 100/6 games (or 200/6 now I guess) is irrelevant to me.
    Now, I don't want this message to come across the wrong way. I'm not complaining per-se. I'm happy to proxy and I play in an environment where it's accepted. At this stage I don't know exactly what components I'll need to upgrade my ships. Dials at least, I imagine. Baseplates maybe, but I'm not sure. I just don't like the notion that there's only two ways to play the game: "normal" games and Epic games.
    This is our game. Not theirs, and we can play it literally any way we can imagine.

    I was hoping for a 15-20mm scale game with stands of infantry supported by walkers, speeders, turrets and air support on a grand scale, making something like the Battle of Hoth achievable and playable.
    What we are getting looks more to the scale of a major commando raid in the vein of the Battle of Scarif. 
    Not a bad thing, but a I said, not what I was hoping for.

    Kentucky Fried Ewok reacted to DeChevalier in I taught 6 new players the other day ,they had a lot of fun! But I can't sell this game anymore.   
    Two of the biggest barriers to "Fly Casual" that we found in my play group were the following:
    1.  Due to FFG's exhaustive FAQing around, there is an extreme disparity between printed card text and "official" card text.
    2.  Tournament/WAAC players wanting join our campaign games, but refusing to check their Tournament/WAAC mentality at the door.
     
    We solved these both these issues rather simply... The card does what the card says. Biggs always works. The Jumpmaster has torps and a droid. Palp works the way he reads. Deadeye can be on a large ship. Tournament players no longer want to play with us for fear of confusing themselves, and no one has to worry about "do I have the latest interpretation of the card I'm holding in my hand". Makes it so much easier on everyone.

    My son's and I just came back from the cinema and we haven't stopped talking about it.
    We can't believe how bad the movie was. This movie makes the prequels look better...slightly.
    We disagreed with Force Awakens, my boys loved it, I hated it, we all loved Rogue One. But the Last Jedi is poorly paced and the humour is forced. The whole slow race of death is just...there is no words to describe it.

    We all agree for us it is the worst of all the Star Wars movies. No trolling, not trying to be negative, it is just a bad movie. I'm incredibly disappointed.

    I agree, it was like Poe was trying to channel Starlord. 
    The humour in ESB was subtle and unforced. This was pie in the face humour, not suitable for Star Wars. The reviews saying this is as good as ESB baffle me.
