  1. Yet again FFG make players in Australia say FFS not only do you hike up the prices over here compared to the rest of the world you systematically leave us out i was hesitant about 2.0 and future releases anyway But this solidifies why you are not getting my money anymore
  2. So since the T65 has been upgraded with opening and closing s-foils would it be logical to think that the starviper could also benefit from this type of upgrade ? since the ship does have folding wings the u-wing has it, the new T65 has it what else could use this ? Just a thought FBJ ?
  3. Yeah you’re right it will cost me a lot to upgrade yes it’s my fault I own my failures Maybe i wanted to replace my Star Wars collection I had as a kid that was given away by my family But because I didn’t want to photocopy cards or print them out at home just to get enough of the specific cards I needed to be able to field the build I wanted I purchased heavily I ultimately realised this and for my local league fielded 4 blue b-wing and a z95 (bbbbz) No upgrades nothing and I won the league because I learnt to fly really well but if FFG offered an upgrade system to get replacement cards for your original purchases at a sensible cost I’d be happy what we’re all those purchase tokens for (either card or cut out) if not for this possible solution ? i collected them all What for ? Fun ? It just seems like the distribution of cards for each con kit could’ve softened the blow ok I have a crazy collection but I don’t have 2 ghosts or 2 of each rebel phantoms and yeah loads of T65 x-wings but only 2 sets in the con kit ? I just wish FFG had given more thought about what their loyal players would need rather than here’s the basic and buy as much as you need but I suppose that’s what they do that’s why I will buy the app, work out what I really need then buy the con kits as required, probably buy from eBay single items to get a “full” set without having loads of cards left over I will never need or use (like I already have) My original post was to encourage people to show how much they had invested This has obviously backfired and it’s broken down into the usual 2.0 moaning thread that is my mistake not buying loads of ships to play a game From something I love
  4. Well no I “clearly” can’t afford to buy the upgrade for what’s needed for my ships Yeah I agree I have a serious collection, and I won’t be able to buy into x-wing like this in future But, since when has my charitable contributions got anything to do with my hobby ? May i politely ask you what do you do for your local community? Do you help out in a soup kitchen ? Spend time with the homeless? Maybe you give your time to talk with the elderly personally I volunteer for an emergency service, I carry a pager and respond when required but what’s that got to do with x-wing ?
  5. I don’t have this amount of disposable income I’ve worked and saved hard to be able to get a good collection and I’m in Australia and this costs a fair few dollars over here, it’s not cheap to play I understand that people will think .. so you have the cash to get all of that then TS and stop moaning I’m not really moaning just highlighting why some of us aren’t that impressed with contents of the 2.0 con kits its an honest opinion, i’m Not trying to change anyone view point here
  6. I mix it up and fly either whole builds of one type or a mixture always wanted to field the lot in a massive epic game with maybe waves of ships but haven’t had a 7 days in a row free to play it ?
  7. Hi Ok I get that i’ll have some people moaning about ‘not another whinge about 2.0’ but i’m someone who has invested heavily into the game since the start i’m also someone who will have to upgrade here is my collection. I think the old adage “a picture paints a thousand words” is valid So why not show FFG what some of us not happy about feel free to add your photos of your collection to show them what we mean FBJ
  8. Ok here’s my view yes I like the idea and possibly some of the changes but being in Australia this is going to seriously cost me (just check the prices of what ships already cost us) I have all factions with a crazy number of each ship I also have 2 of each epic ship but only one Tantive IV in my case it’s going to cost me 2 con packs (good name)for each and 1 box set (I already bought 3 original and 3 updated) But I don’t know if this will be enough to field my ships I own so So.. I’ll wait for the app Work out how much I’m going to have to spend then fork out a F##king load of cash to just play again I knew some senior people at games workshop in the uk and this would be a bad idea even for them and they are monsters when it comes to cash grabs FFG need to release the app ASAP and then state exactly what will be in each box im not going to be happy to buy multiple con kits only to find I need to rebuy one of each ship to get the other pilots etc in summary a great idea but very badly managed FFG please get on the front foot and fix this
  9. Hey Sandrem Jesus this work is impressive keep up the great work FBJ
  10. hey thanks yeah it's ideally for casual play i think the concept in a tournament would fall apart cheers FBJ

    a thought ?

    hey been playing for years and i love the game however i'm interested in making it more strategic, at the moment it seems that i make a list, work out how i'm going to play it and then that all goes out of the window when i see what my opponent is fielding, it turns into a case of, i know what they've got and probably how they're going to run it, so now i'm just countering their list before we even get started my planned strategy is gone and its just reactive to whatever my opponent does turns 1-3 sometimes turn into 1 forward no actions (by both players) until people get into range, quite frankly its boring and those rounds are at times worthless so here's a thought make a list (check it twice ) You do not reveal pilot or upgrade cards on deployment they are face down You still deploy ships in pilot skill order as usual (yes the opponent can see the ship token and read who it is, i get that) You flip and reveal pilot cards after the first manoeuvre or action You flip and reveal upgrade cards when used (in a tournament the TO see's the list before hand and agree's it's ok) Knowing what your opponent has before starting the game means it dictates strategy too early Remove this and fore knowledge is gone until you start actually playing so the first and second rounds are more tactical based on your own ships. Not just what the opponent has Strategy begins in turn 1 and expands when in range 3 when shooting can begin I thought that although it is a game, in general people fighting wouldn’t know what the other has before starting (Han Solo didn’t know that Vader had 2 actions when he attacked him in the trench after all) I also play Destiny and yeah you can see who the character cards are, but the other cards/dice are not shown until played it makes it more challenging, dynamic and interesting I'm happy to get criticism or other views on this idea I'm not trying to change the game, it's just a way to make a casual game more interesting without the usual (this card will fix everything post) thoughts ? FBJ
  12. hey yeah i tried that but they didn't look quite right i did flip the wings around on the Proto as they looked a little better i'll take a pic and show you what i mean FBJ
  13. holy **** that looks fantastic good work mate FBJ
  14. moving the wings around sort of reminds me of this FBJ
