    SPECPOL got a reaction from JJFDVORAK in Question about Firespray and Ysanne Isard   
    Since we do not all share a common lexicon for contractions and acronyms, let us endeavor to use clear speech, full words, and direct and simplified language. Part of what makes reading the forums so taxing is the over use of acronyms, slang terms, and word contractions- real or made up. If I never see the letters "OP" again, it will be too soon.

    SPECPOL reacted to gamblertuba in Proof that the K-Wing was designed by a 4th Grader.   
    Flipping through the doodles drawn by my 4th grade son (mostly battleships and the like) I ran across what can only be an early concept sketch of the K-wing.

    Just need to add a few more engines and about 7 more bombs and missiles...  Oh and another cockpit or two.

    Quite frankly, with Imperial Assault, X-Wing and Armada, they can take their time between each new release. With those three games, FFG has successfully monopolized all my gaming budget.

    SPECPOL reacted to krechevskoy in Is an X-wing 2.0 gearing up on the horizon?   
    Realize in the first paragraph, my guess is no.
     
    Also with varying powers on sides balancing 2 opposing sides is easier than juggling 3.  It is food for thought because there usually is that much retooling to promote a level playing field without a game becoming rock-paper-scissors.
     
    Obviously this is their biggest seller from the inflight report.   Each year so far FFG gets more aggressive with what they release.  They will probably end up releasing much more than we know of, or that FFG can capably produce. 
     
    Obviously FFG's biggest issue with the game is the supply chain. 
     
    Or FFG will just start slapping SW on everything and we all await the expansion of "Android: This is the expansion you are looking for" or Cthulhu Sith lords.

    I like how every perceived problem in the OP is immediately solved if you treat X-wing Miniatures like a fun Star Wars themed space combat game and not a competitive sport...

    SPECPOL got a reaction from LaserBrain in Is it just me or is none playing shuttles anymore?   
    Made this becasue I was tired of deciding everything on "The Meta Game"- just wasn't fun anymore. Fly casual, have fun.I can routinely clean house with this list in our informal games. Demolishes the Fat Falcons, Chirpy, and other 2 ship lists. Not great against swarms. Fun though- More like hearding- You cruise around slowly at range 3 from each other and funnel ships into the space between for a "best of 2 bad options" scenario. EU is there to keep arc dodgers within the Decimator's turret. Vader is there when you need him, but positioning and getting the Mara Jade stress is more important.

    All this just leaves me thinking, it is high time for Lambda Aces, come on FFG, you know its time, we've all been waiting, shuttle pilots that can take EPT, you know we need it. I mean really, when your take a shuttle, aren't you always, pushing the limit ?

    I'm going with controlled crash. A super Star Destroyer is bigger than the meteor that killed the dinosaurs. But with enough anti-grav working for it, it could control the crash enough to cripple the ship without destroying the planet.
    What I find funny, thinking about it now, is how much cheaper ramming an SD into a planet to cause a mass extinction is than building A Death Star... I suppose Dearh Stars don't give much time for escapes though. That makes for scarier symbols.

    Again, proving the point that the events of the so called Return of the Jedi were nothing more than a shoddy, poorly made, third rate, substandard Rebel traitorous propaganda holo vid.

    I was really shook up and justifiably upset seeing the remains of a once proud and formidable Super Star Destroyer in the trailer, but thankfully I found this GEM on this still photo to make my day marginally brighter.
     
    Source of humor.
