  1. The BTL-A4 title was a bit of a fix for Rebel Y-Wings.

    The necessity of re-done 2.0 templates and cards

    I don’t think the low end or high end of PS really gets affected much by the compression. It’s all the awkward values in the middle that were either taken for a pilot ability, EPT slot, or just to have a higher PS than some of the lower PS ships that were common. Often times that left you with a squad full of ships scattered across a few different PS values lockig you into a particular activation order. With less different PS values in the middle you are more likely to end up with multiple ships at the same PS.

    I Don't Get It

    It’s absolutely not a new game, the version number in the name even indicates as much. To use the MMORPG analogy that someone else dropped, if playing X-Wing 2.0 is playing World of Warcraft with whatever the current expansion is, continuing to play the orginal X-Wing is the equivilent of finding a private server that is running vanilla WoW. You’ll have some people that do it, and there will probably be a community effort to comeup with stats to make new ships backwards compatible.
  4. You’ll need a complete set of templates from what I’ve seen. The new bases don’t have nubs. You line up the line on the template with a line on the cardboard on the base.

    I Don't Get It

    I think calling X-Wing 2.0 a different game is a stretch. I’ve seen multiple people make that statement in different threads. If FFG had kept the same scale and had a Legion conversion kit so that I could use all of the models I owned for Imperial Assault, that would be FFG giving me a way to use components from game 1 in game 2. X-Wing 2.0 will just be the current version of X-Wing. It’s really not much different than the release of FAQs and errata. It’s just larger in scale and requires replacing a lot of cardboard.

    One weird side-effect of all this 2e nonsense

    So cut out the middle man and plan on giving up a half liter?

    One weird side-effect of all this 2e nonsense

    My take away from that is that a quarter liter of blood can cover my initial 2.0 buy in.

    It costs you 7% to upgrade your Rebel fleet

    I’ve calmed down a little bit about needing multiples of each conversion kit until I’ve seen how squad building works out. Now I’m a little worried about the quantity of upgrades in the kits. That one will probably mitigated a bit by needing to buy 3 different conversion kits which likely have a ton of overlap on the ugrades that can be used by every faction but I imagine that Imperial only pilots may find themselves short of upgrade like Crackshot.

    Are the conversion kits a scam?

    That old stock is going to sell if they are ships that are good and won’t get a 2.0 release for awhile. I imagine that even new players may be interested in picking up 1.0 ships and a conversion kit to get stuff they want before it gets rereleased.

    Purchasing plan to "Ease" into second edition.

    I believe that the new plastic bases don’t have pegs on them either. You line up the line on the template with the line on the cardboard base insert. That should clear up the ‘when do the nubs count’ questions that come up infrequently enough that most people aren’t sure what the answer is. I suppose it can open up some design space for ships that turn tighter or wider than normal if they smack some extra lines of the bases to be used for specific maneuvers.

    Imperial upgrade kit updated

    I was flying 4 of them around for awhile.

    2.0: Are you in or are you out?

    The 2.0 stuff looks like a lot of solid improvements. I’m not sure if I’m up for buying a Core Set at $40, 1 conversion kit for each of the 5 factions at $50, extra conversion parts for the ships that the conversion kits don’t cover for me, the conversion kit for Huge ships, plus whatever the app costs. I’m probably looking at around $400 to play a game I already own but with new rules. That’s a bit steep for me.

    Coin cases for runes?

    I've had good results using coin capsules on my runes. I don't really flip them so much as I shake them up in my hands and then drop them on the table.

    How Did You Learn To Play?

    My brother taught me how to play. Then I read the rules and figured out how the game was actually played.
