    Making one question about both Wave 4 and the points changes means none of the answers fit my opinion.

    I like my breaks. During a long day of X-Wing, I'll be very tempted to throw a game to get some time to smoke/pee/eat without being in a rush.

    I'm very concerned by the idea that people might have an issue with someone conceeding a game because they're feeling tired/hungry.  If I was 4-0 in a five round event and knew I was making the cut regardless of how that last game went, I'd much rather conceed, get some food and deal with the likely headache that I'll have at that stage of event than play a game and not really enjoy it.

    I've said it before, 3rd party squad builders saved FFGs bacon. If I had to rely on the official app, I don't think I'd have stuck with 2.0.

    I mean... kissing your sister and getting your arm cut off are "Star Wars" and I wouldn't like those in the game either.
    It's sort of like why epic was unpopular with the majority of X-Wing players in 1.0. It wasn't because it wasn't "Star Wars"; it's because the game does not scale well with a higher number of ships, which is why they're basically redoing epic as we speak. 6+ ships turns the game from dog-fighting into accidental bumping, marking, 15 minute rounds, ignoring obstacles (because Gas), and un-concluded matches where the wins are essentially just a matter of who got half points on something before time is called.
    I'm sure people also enjoyed 100 pt Miranda, but I still think its awful and glad its gone because it wasn't dog-fighting. Tie Swarm is dog-fighting in the movies, but on the board, it's just pushing a sharp cornered blob around while your opponent sits and waits.

    Koing907 reacted to PhantomFO in Is there a way to improve upgrade pricing?   
    It's enough to play the game, but it feels like much of the point pricing lately is less to bring things into balance, and more to push people into not using the cards at all. Proton Torpedoes went from exceedingly commonplace, to common on a few aces, to now probably only seeing play on a very select few ships like Vynder. It didn't drive people to use other torpedoes. It just drove them to fly ships that didn't need Torpedoes at all.
    Some of these price adjustments seem like they were designed to push the cards completely out of the game, like Trajectory Simulator. I haven't seen it on the table since it went to 10 points. Supernatural basically only exists on Kylo now, and even that's rare.
    The current pattern seems to be that a card comes out that is very strong on one or two pilots, so they increase the cost for all pilots in order to balance the outliers. The end result is that you might still see it on those few pilots, maybe. But nobody else will ever touch that card, and the offending pilots may just gravitate to something else that hadn't been nerfed yet. It's like trying to smooth out a pillow by whacking it with a hammer.

    If you can't balance, your game, price the meta lists out of existence.

    Most of you already know that the points are updated. If you are going to an event that does not use the new points, there is a link to a version of YASB with the old points active. You can see it in the image below:

    Alternatively you can go to https://raithos.github.io/old to look at the old points. I'll try to follow this scheme going forward. When printing lists, there should be a note that specifies which version of the points its using. Please be aware going to events with these lists.

    I loved the bits in Rebels with Administrator Tua. She started out as just a paper pusher, but the water started heating up as the Empire fought the rebels on Lothal.
    I'd be down with a storyline where the Empire starts out actually helping a planet. Putting things right, creating peace and justice. But make no mistake, the Empire are the baddies, and eventually they crack down on the freedoms of the populace in order to enforce order, until the enforcement becomes the reason they're there, and peace and justice become afterthoughts.
    That is, after all, the main theme of the Republic's fall. The people become so desperate for order, that they sacrifice their freedom for it.
