    Hylian100 reacted to Woobyluv in Collection photos to show why 2.0 will cost you a lot   
    I don't really understand the complaint here.  You had the money to get the collection, which by the looks of it is more than the average player would invest.  Assuming your disposable income level is the same, what exactly is the problem?

    Yep, that sure is a lot of stuff.
    So when was the last time you fielded all of this?

    Why yes, it is a cash grab, in as much as releasing a miniseries game based on a popular IP is a cash grab. It's almost life they want to be paid for putting a hobby product on sale or something...

    3rd party list-builders are a thing, they support webapps. FFG most likely will offer an webapp as well, furthermore a print out will be avaible for complete offline use and windows/mac will be supported as well (most likely via an webapp).
    Lastly the cards offer a quick setup system which has cost listed for complete packages with upgrades, so even a quick game in the boonies with just the cards is no problem at all. 
     
    Smartphone use is purely optional and most likely not even ideal, considering how desktop apps work much more efficient. We all here use list builders already, right? ?

    ... I am having a slightly hard time feeling for players who bought what everyone, including them, knew at the time was a completely over the top number of ships... you know, like the type where they would gleefully post photos of 120+ ships and go on about their ten X-Wings or twelve TIE fighters or five Falcons... spending thousands along the way... 
     
    ... who are now mad they have to either a) accept not spending enough money to have the dials and cards for each and every ship, even though you will almost never use them all at once, or b) have to spend a fraction of their original investment to convert over.
     
    I mean... I get it... but I don’t feel THAT bad.

    This is crappy screen capture, but the new Slave 1 is better detailed I think.

    This is not only good for the game, but fantastic for new players too. No more telling them they'll need multiple different expansions to make the starter set x-wing play life it should now, for one thing.

    So a new player wanting to get this preorder bonus extra pilot would have to buy a $50 pack as a complete waste of money?
    The perfect move to get new players. Because the one thing that makes me happy is when somebody else is not allowed to get something.

    NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
    You do not have to buy the new models to get new cards, upgrades, bases, or dials to convert the old ship.
    Do more research next time.

    or more likely the Raddus had shifted its shields mostly to the aft to protect from the more dangerous star destroyer barrages. after all, if fighters can shift power around on their deflectors ("double front" anyone?) i don;t see why the capital ships couldn't do much the same.

    Hylian100 reacted to JJs Juggernaut in FFG stop teasing me   
    Why ever have 8 ships with a pass rule? In order to get shots you have to put 5-6 of them in range of your opponent with 2 ships with Gunnery teams. You then lose 2-3 of those small fragile ships, and if you are second player then you lose another 1-2 as those big ships activate first next round... Your suggestion ends with 2-3 ship lists being the only ones played at top levels of the game.

    As already stated. A pass rule would significantly alter the balance of the game to the detriment of all that has already been created balanced around the existing game system. I have played with a pass rule...It significantly decreases the ability of small ships to have an effect on the game without putting them in significant danger. MSU would become near non-existent as you would be much safer bringing 2-3 large ships and tons of squads and have almost no downside. This would significantly remove most of the variety that currently exists in list building. Play it as a house rule if you like, but don't think for a moment this is what the majority of players want.

    The best way to give the /sf a crew slot would be an alternative title.  The crewman is manning the turret gun, letting you combine fire out the front or shoot twice.  Letting him do something else costs you that ability.

    What if both names are right? Like there's some in-universe design history with two different corporations giving that ship their own respective moniker, or pilots referring to it as a B/sf-17 or vice-versa out of respect to an older craft. Flimsy justification sure but I could see it happening.

    Ah, see you're looking for the salt subforum. That either belongs on the main page, or in the off topic perhaps.
    This sub is for list building. When those "ugly ship"  get produced, then you can complain about how you need to build around them here
