    It isn’t Guardians of the Republic.

    I define unbalanced as a... thing (pilot, upgrade, combo of them) being so superior to other choices that it "beats" them. Nymranda from 1.0 jokingly being called the "Final Form", for example. A meta isn't necessarily a bad thing, if there's lots of stuff in it. In that post, I'm talking about the X-Wing meta, which is dominated by certain choices.

    **** no. It might be less blatant than Extended, but I'm sure clear choices will rise to the top, and it will form a mini-meta. I'm not smurt enough to predict which ships/pilots those will be (I have my suspicions), but I'm experienced enough to know it will happen.

    What is hyperspace format?

    Personally, I envisioned alternate formats as more themed things. Like, with objectives and list requirements that fit objectives. (Bring these lists from Return of the Jedi, the missions are to attack/defend the Death Star II) This whole "balancing the game" angle is... not wise IMO.

    What is hyperspace format?

    In hindsight, FFG locked themselves into a lot of stuff with the conversion kits. That was a lot of stuff to change and rebalance all at once. I can see the argument that if they hadn't released conversion kits, a lot of 1.0 players would have bailed, but it's also a missed opportunity to modulate the game with incremental releases instead of *BAM!* all at once.

    What is hyperspace format?

    I did not draw any conclusions. I made the suggestion that perhaps Hyperspace would be better served as an introductory format. Perhaps the idea of an introductory format is better served by seperating it from the meta tangle issues that hyperspace is also (supposedly) supposed to address.

    Are you an X-Wing cheater?

    That reminds me. I need to get some custom 2.0 crit tokens. (The ones that have an icon that shows what the crit is)

    It's not X-Wing until somebody bumps a ship. I forget stuff from time to time. I'm pretty forgiving when my opponent does it. It's part of playing a non-computer game, where people make mistakes.

    Interesting. A kind of ghetto X-Wing, where players are encouraged to be guinea pigs.

    You do realize my reply wasn't meant to address every argument, right?

    What is hyperspace format?

    In that case, maybe Hyperspace would be better as an X-Wing introductory format. Call it Academy. New players are eventually going to have to deal with game bloat, the same way we all did.

    It isn’t Guardians of the Republic.

    Considering FFG's track record, I'd bet on it.

    Hyperspace: we can't balance the game, so we'll ban 90% of it! 😆

    What is hyperspace format?

    Heh. Hey, newbies! do you want to get stomped in Extended or stomped in Hyperspace? The only argument I've thought was cogent was that getting beat by ships they don't have would feel like rubbing it in.

    Hyperspace Trials

    I'm not complaining. That means I've got 4 events within driving range.

    Hyperspace Trials

    So there's a Hyperspace in Portland and Vancouver, WA? *Edit* WA, but they're right next to each other.
