  1. Structuring the conversion kits to require a core was a blunder and gave credence to the "money grab" reaction to 2.0. Finding a way for returning players to get the cardboard we need from the core would go a long way towards building goodwill, and allow returning players to focus on all the GOOD stuff coming out of 2.0.
  2. - I would have liked to see cards go away entirely. Move everything to the squadbuilder (or printed lists from the squadbuilder). Use something like the threat system, but with the complete build on one card, to make ships playable out of the box. - It's always bugged me that you play to the death. Some sort of mission or objective system that prioritizes keeping your squadron together would be neat. If you've ever played one of the "Leader" solo board games by Dan Verssen, that's what I mean. I want there to be times when it is better to pull out of a fight in order to keep my pilots alive. Get the HotAC guy on the payroll. - And for the love of God, put enough dice in the core set.
  3. Right now, it looks like FFG is trying to force you to buy another core. Hopefully, they will recognize that returning players have no need for another core, and come up with another way we can get just the cardboard we need for 2.0.
  4. And yet they continue to sell a separate dice pack instead of just giving you enough dice to actually play the game.
  5. Put the cardboard returning players need in the conversion kits, or put it in a bubble mailer and let us send it in our proofs of purchase for it. Returning players DO NOT NEED another core.
  6. This is the big issue with me. Returning players should not be forced to buy yet another core set. We have dice, we have X's and TIEs - either include the cardboard we need in the conversion kits, or ship it to us in a bubble mailer in exchange for our many proofs of purchase.
  7. THIS Existing players should not be forced to buy another core set.
  8. Then let us mail in our proofs of purchase and get them. Or hand them out at OP events. The point is that existing players should not have to have to purchase another core; the core set is for new players.
  9. Then put the rules in the conversion kits. Or give out 2.0 rules, damage decks, and new templates to existing players in then next OP kit.
  10. This existing player does NOT want another core set. I have four - I do not need any more. Put the stuff I need in the conversion kits.
  11. The conversion kits won't be a scam IF they include everything an existing player needs to get into 2.0. No core set purchase should be necessary.
  12. Plenty of room in there for a few more TIES. I'd be a lot less likely to look at this as a money grab if FFG weren't trying to force us into buying another core. The conversion kits should contain EVERYTHING an existing player needs to get into 2.0.
  13. This is my main problem with the conversion kits - they should include everything I need to play the game. I can assure you I don't need any more X-Wing or TIE models.
  14. Most miniatures games don't have their rules broken up into hundreds of little pieces of cardboard. They seem to work just fine.
  15. Will the app (or a list printed from the app) be legal for FFG-sanctioned events?
  16. I hope that isn't the case. That makes the squadbuilder/app a lot less useful.
  17. At my store, people who haven't printed their lists in advance just do it off the store's printer.
  18. You can do that on a printed list; I do it now with shields, extra munitions, etc. And in an app, it would just be a matter of pressing a button.
  19. I thought I read that there will be a browser version?
  20. With the official list builder app, I don't see why you would need physical copies of the cards. If I can show up with an iPad, how can they make you show up with 20 pieces of cardboard?
  21. That's why I said "or off of a printed list". I have various devices, but play off of a printed list now - because I don't feel like laying out an array of cards.
  22. The part of 2.0 that I'm most excited about is the official squadbuilder. It's a great move that has been a long time coming. So with that bold move, why are they still making cards? The new cards don't have the point costs or upgrade slots, so they're useless for making lists. FFG should have saved the cost and the clutter and ditched them entirely - we can play either off the app, or off of a printed list.
  23. Probably in, with some caveats: - Put everything I need to upgrade in the UPGRADE kit - damage deck, tokens, etc. I do NOT need to buy yet another core set. - Fix the quantities in the upgrade kits. I suspect this is related to making us buy another core. I won't buy more than one upgrade kit in any case - I'll proxy my X-Wings, TIEs, and Interceptors. - Most importantly - I can only be in if the people I play with are in. If they don't upgrade, there isn't much point in me upgrading.
  24. Ditch the cards. They are not needed to play the game, and are in fact an impediment to playing the game. Go to an official online squad builder.
