    A whole lot of people are going to die because folks like you are too easily swayed by fossil fuel industry propaganda.
     
    This thread is going to need to be locked, but I'm not going to let bat**** lies like this get told, and not have them called out.

    Hot take- faction prizes tricked people into being more rational actors.  Jedi are good, as are swarms and imp aces.  But!  Even in a rational meta where those things stand out, the math of large tournaments suggests that exclusively flying those things or prepping against it is wrong if the power curve is shallow enough.  And worlds results have pretty much convinced me that the curve *is* relatively shallow for most "reasonable" squads.

    I was surprised that you played this squad since those Nantex' are vulnerable to a single bad green roll. I don't recall any of your other Worlds squads being like this. 
    Were you that confident about avoiding enough shots because of ensnare shenanigans? Was it a meta call that you didn't think you'd see many medium/large bases? Do you think the Nantex/ensnare is under priced enough that their relative power difference is worth the green dice risk?
    Sorry for the barrage of questions. I really liked the squad, and was surprised to see you play it, so I assume you have some interesting insights about it.

    Honestly, I couldn't beat it with squads I found fun (Sear Swarm was my main squad leading into this).  Since I couldn't beat it, I joined it.
    The meta call was that large bases would disappear by the time I hit the cut, so I just needed to get there.  Once I would, I could beat any swarm or single or double ace list.  The triple ace lists that are all 5+ (Oli, for example) needed a little bit of luck and outplaying.

    Crit Happens reacted to Forcause31 in Quiting at the final table -Worlds Recap   
    This might not be the most popular post. But did anyone notice that the American player folded with a Z-95 I1 with full health?  Granted he still probably would have lost, but you make the final table and then quit?  Come on, many players fought hard to attempt to get there and then he doesn't even finish the game. FFG should have made him finish the game, miracles do happen after all. I think it's unsportsmanlike and a terrible precedent for a final table. Thoughts?

    Whether or not you believe you can pull any real data from worlds results, you have to admit- That was a pretty dang entertaining event from start to finish.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what's meant by trench run in your list. Maybe I'm not keeping up with these forums like I used to? Is this a common naming convention that I've missed?

    Why not just cost regen according to the Luke Gunner school of thought? It's something that none of us really want in the game, and encourages a playstyle that is not fun. Price it above 16. That should mostly get rid of it.

    I'm cool with thematic cards, but that shouldn't be a reason to have a feels bad mechanic. 
    If regenerating above half points is a problem (it definitely is! It's the biggest complaint I hear at the table), doesn't it stand to reason that regen is a problem? I don't claim it's the only problem. But it shouldn't require a weird work around to still count those as destroyed points. 
    Regen being fine on x wings is debatable. I don't think we saw it very much early on because of the charge limit. I would actually be curious to see if R2 shows up on Luke more often now than it did prior to Republic being in the game. X wings have the ability to run as well. They can't run as effectively as Aethersprites, but there are end game scenarios where that decision to run and regen above half can still happen. 
    I know that people hate seeing Jedi run for 20+ minutes after regenerating above half. That ship has magnified the issue, but it doesn't mean it's only an issue on that ship. My opinion is that running in the last turn to get above half is just as much of an issue as doing it for half the game. One scenario looks a lot worse, but it's the same problem. 
    @Kieransi I'm curious what overdefensive stuff you're referring to? Are you just talking force or something else?

    Don't sleep on Kagi either. What if you forced your opponent to spend 3 turns killing a shuttle instead of your two aces?

    All force users are not created equal though.  I don't think "force charge infinite mod aces" are all equal - do you all hate Luke as much as you hate aethersprites?
     
    Are people mad at CLT aethersprites?
    Fanatical also gives you all of this - leads me to believe we're mad at defensive mods, right?  Offensive mads feel less bad - at least to me.
