  1. is anyone honestly arguing that Palp + Soontir was good for the game? Cos that's what this thread seems to imply. He was a much needed nerf that reduces the overall power level of the game, meaning we don't have to creep older ships out of the game.
  2. so with Biggs dead can we FINALLY buff the T-65?
  3. that's great and all, but some of us grumpy old hands have been flying since 2012, and even back then it was clear the X-Wing was far less efficient than it's Imperial counterpart, but that didn't show because flying a TIE Swarm properly was a very rare feat. These days with the power creep, the T-65 needs help, and the designers openly giving up on it is genuinley infuriating. I've given them the benefit of the doubt for years, thinking they were just waiting for the right fix at the right time.
  4. they've had literally years of data proving the X-Wing is a terrible ship, and they've decided to give up with a pithy "we're looking to the future not the past". If anything I'm being polite
  5. **** them then. they can pump out these hideous new ships all they like, but theres no excuse for the travesty that is the X-Wing in it's current state
  6. so I don't have time to listen to this, not really been into X-Wing for years (on strike until they fix the T-65) any word on that front? Last news we had was from 2015 when Alex said "IA is not the last we'll see for the Old X-Wing". Or are we stuck with revolting turdlike spaceships forever until the game dies?
  7. I disagree with this belief. There are so many ways to buff the T-65 without making Biggs unkillable, and any designer worth their salt should be able to work around him.
  8. christ people, Rebels have only just made it back to the tables after Dengaroo and U-Boats and now we want them back off the table?
  9. lol owned
  10. Yeah its pretty clear that the X-Wing is bad when literally only Biggs sees any play. Wes is ok but needs to have an entire list built around him, and in these days of extreme mindlink token nonsense, a single focus modified 3 dice attack that's nearly a third of your list whiffing just to remove a single evade token is laughable, especially when you need something to follow up to take advantage of that (and Wes just ate a third of your points, and if you're gonna bring biggs that's another 1/4 of your points stapled to a turd of a ship). And it's shocking that we have a Star Wars game where Luke Skywalker is such a bad choice he hasn't seen a tournament table since 2013.
  11. I mean I heard at worlds he said something about ships like the Kihraxz and Starviper and T-65 getting some more stuff, but have never been able to find a vod of the stream he said this in.
  12. I'm so annoyed that they refuse to give the T-65, the ******* ship the game is named after, any actual attention. And now it looks like we're getting Prequel Ships. Well **** em, its been years since they said they were gonna give the T-65 another boost, and we've got **** all. And in it's place we've had two of the most turgid boring metas the game has ever seen.
  13. btw has there been any more news on the 'X-Wing fix' front? I remember back in 2015 Alex Davy said that IA was not 'the fix', and there would be more T-65 love 'when they got the oppertunity', but its been 2 years now. Has he said anything more on this front since then?
  14. Personally I'd like to actually make the X-Wing pilots we have competitively viable (Luke Skywalker anyone?) rather than just creating new ones with the same problems. The X-Wing doesn't do anything apart from have Biggs flying it. That's what any fix will have to adress.
  15. It really is amazing though that we have a Star Wars game where Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antillies etc. don't see any play, but fan favorite characters like 'Miranda Doni' and 'Manaroo' do.
