    Tenka reacted to Dr Zoidberg in Had a dispute with a friend regarding rolling/re-rolling rules when you have rolled too few dice.   
    While I'd probably let you have the roll, in a tournament setting, I think your opponent would be within his right to say that was a missed opportunity on your account and you're just going to have to live with it.

    Tenka reacted to ParaGoomba Slayer in New Article up "Fly Casual"   
    Agreed. This article was trash, for a few reasons.
    1.) "There is nothing wrong with 100 point standard matches, but you could ban ships or play epic if you wanted to to spice things up a bit." Fine, I agree. But they padded out that one sentence for an entire article.
    2.) Fly casual. Yes, can't wait for someone flying "casually" to get angry with me when they're denied a trigger they've missed. What a great ideology, let's create the expectation that players hold each others' hands so that when someone won't hold their hand they'll feel justified throwing a tantrum.
    How this article could have been better:
    FFG officially backing a, "casual" format for tournaments. Like the Top Gun format or even the bring 2 lists, no shared uniques format. Something that would draw more casuals to events, and that would prevent just getting punished by Soontir Fel or U-Boats or Super Dash.
    Top Gun format is you build 3 30 point small based ships, no unique pilots or upgrades.

    Seems like the article states the obvious. Do we really need someone to remind you/us to play for fun?

    Tenka reacted to VaynMaanen in Etiquette of revealing the dial   
    There used to be a rule in the tourney rules that stated if you would like to look at your dials during the activation phase you must let your opponent know first. Since then, that rule has been removed, and I still don't understand why.
    If your opponent likes to fiddle with his dials, just ask them to please make sure to let you know when they pick them up. It's common courtesy and a fair (and used to be a legal) request.

    Tenka got a reaction from Embir82 in New Article up "Fly Casual"   
    Tournament format is always going to be the most popular. Because that is where there are high stakes .. (yes even if it is just a low level tourney..) being the best in the group creates a motivation to succeed (and prizes help too). When players have motivation to succeed, suddenly all of your maneuvers matter more, all of your actions matter more, your choice of ships and upgrade cards matters more. Everything matters more, its more exciting and allows people to live the dream of traveling to places to play in the high level tournaments defeat the toughest opponents and be the best of the best etc..
     
    You will never top that with casual play.. its never going to happen. I get that there are players who are going to want to play without the "pressure" .. but without that "pressure" you cant be "serious" and without being "serious" it is just not as rewarding to succeed.

    I should clarify, I'm cool with some neat new ships. Our modern forces have a staggering array of variety and historically there have always been wierd and wacky experimental craft. I just really love the OT ships and want them to have another moment in the sun, I'd hate for the X Wings and TIE fighters to be over shadowed by U wings and new TIEs.

    It happens. Flying RC has taught me that if an essential item can be forgotten it will be forgotten. I hate showing up and realizing I've forgotten my radio, or the batteries, or the screws to hold the wing on the plane...Good luck. Hope you get it back and quickly.

    If you dont use it now, just for R2, extra dice, asteroids..

    You will later when you are thoroughly addicted to the game and start playing all kinds of things like Tie Swarm which requires at least 4-5 Tie Fighters (some early incarnations used 7).
    Biggs is still a solid ship in any rebel list.
    You can even run a Wedge/Wes Janson if you acquire the pilot cards and bases, which are dirt cheap.

    All points that mean nothing to you right now, but if you're still playing in 3 or 4 months you will be glad you kept it.
