  1. I'll believe it when I see an article announcing it. That seems like a really easy thing for management to say no to.
  2. I'm not sure this was ever suggested? What they said was that you don't have to buy (insert only 1 ship here) in order to get a specific upgrade (like the autothrusters expansion). All factions will have an expansion pack that comes with a particular upgrade card, allowing someone to only buy a single faction, and stay competitive. They're still not in the business of selling card packs.
  3. I would also love some quick build options from the conversion kits. They would be great for draft tournaments!
  4. Correct. Nathan used perfect range and arc control. Nathan goes undefeated over three days of x wing, and confirms that everyone in California is just bad at X wing?
  5. This is my first reaction as well. How is Trip Wookies not the answer here?
  6. Of course, he called it "imperial jank", but was flying Inquisitor, Ryad, and Backdraft. His idea of jank is cute.
  7. It's actually been super fun at KC the last two weeks. We've all been flying pretty wholesome things. Even Bryson has been flying only arced ships! I'm flying nothing but TIE Phantoms, and loving life. But no, I haven't seen that thread yet...
  8. This can be arranged... Hey @Wiredin, what are you and your son doing this weekend?
  9. Wouldn't it be easier to get everyone to enter their squads into list juggler? Put out a post on all sites making the request, and things should get filled in pretty quickly. I just looked and saw there isn't a list juggler entry yet.
  10. Sure, you can compare the wording on Dash and Nym pilot cards, but your comparison of bombs and obstacles is way off. Bombs do a thing (detonate) when a certain event triggers them. The event is either the end of activation (seismic, proton, ion, thermal) or when a ship base or template overlaps them (cluster, prox, Conner). Why would you decide that Nym stops one of those event triggers, but not the other? Obstacles never do anything. Obstacles also don't ignore Dash. They just don't do anything about it. This is why people are insisting that bombs don't ignore Nym.
  11. I can attest that cardigans are a rather functional piece of X-wing attire, mostly for the variable temperature control. Very cold? - On and buttoned. Bonus: you look amazing; Slight chill? - On and unbuttoned; Comfortable, but maybe you want to hide some wicked pit stains? - Drape it over your shoulders like a cape; Warm, but don't have a chair to hang it on? - Tie it around your waste (preferably with a sweet power stance for maximum intimidation); Things are getting a bit too real, and you need maximum range of motion to chase down Miranda in the end game? - Take that thing right off.
  12. I'll be at Worlds, playing on Wednesday, wearing a Blizzard Squadron shirt, and making it rain (err snow...) with snowflake target locks. Definitely down for a meetup, it would be great to put faces to usernames!
  13. Bossk with fearlessness, cluster missiles, Dengar crew, K4 Droid, Zuckuss, Glitterstim, chips. Caps out at 10 damage, assuming you get a natural Crit on one of the rolls (chips only once). And this is reasonably likely with Dengar crew helping you out. This was exactly what I used in the days of TIE defenders being everywhere. It feels really good to one-shot Vessery before he gets to shoot. The best I ever did with it was one-shoting an IG-88, with an evade token, and Glitterstim active (before Zuckuss was nerfed).
  14. I'm loving it so far (5 games in). It's best to split two core sets with someone else to get the biggest bang for your buck. It seems like this is going to be a good game for choosing a single faction. After the split of two cores, get a heavy, and you should be set until the next releases come out!
  15. I understand why Legion isn't having it's own tournament this year as it's still so new, and they still haven't even released the tournament rules yet. But I really expected there to be at least a side event to show off their new game. I'll be at worlds, and would love to bring my legion stuff to get a couple games in, but am doubtful that they'll have any spare tables, let alone any terrain available. Is anyone planning to bring legion to worlds?
  16. For me, the Mortar is auto-include. The early suppression makes life miserable for troopers trying to get to objectives AND stay alive.
  17. The AT-ST is amazingly fun! It also forces some really difficult decisions upon your opponent. Speeder bikes do as well though, but in a different way. I personally struggle a bit more to make the speeder bikes work because they are so fragile. With speeder bikes, the burden of execution is on me to play them well, and if I screw up, it's very easy for the opponent to capitalise. With the AT-ST, the burden of execution is on the opponent to have a plan to either defeat it, or play in such a way as to ignore it as best they can. I hope that helps. I highly recommend picking one up, because it's such a force on the table. It won't find a place in every list for me, but I'll make sure to put it on the table as often as possible.
  18. Are there any other Worlds-goers that die a little each day we go without a new FAQ?
  19. I wasn't at all denying that it could happen, just giving my personal experience so far. Break through is also the only objective that I haven't played yet. I can easily see how that ends in a tie. I think that points of entire units destroyed is pretty good for a tie breaker though. I've seen enough times that 4+ troopers get wiped out in a single ranged attack behind heavy cover, so hunting down a single leader is very doable. Even if hiding behind a building, unless it's that last turn, you should be able to chase him down if necessary.
  20. In ten games watched and played, I haven't seen one go to points destroyed yet. There has always been a player with more objective points.
  21. No, it hasn't come yet, but it should be here within the next two weeks.
