    Echo Base X-Wing: Mission Debriefing

    Glad you were able to get the screen ratio fixed. Looks good.

    Making an insulting noise is how to make it clear the other side has the weaker position? Think of the centuries of philosophy humanity could have saved itself from figuring out.

    Mynock Squadron 152 Feedback

    X wing podcasts openly insulting the player base then having the balls to ask for money for it is one of the most amusing things about this whole community. It's been happening on and off for a long time. That anyone donates a nickle is astonishing. Patreon is a fascinating thing really. Suddenly everyone wants to get paid for their hobbies. It just so happens that x wing podcasters main contribution to the community is to openly ridicule it. Anyone can sit around with their buddies and talk smack once a week. It's not a valuable service worth paying for. This is not a mynock specific problem.
  5. Hyperspace is stupid (TM). Also, it's not really useful to dismiss out position with " it's ok to just play what you want anyways. " We cant play what we want anyways if the entirety of the community goes away. Theres no 1.0 content. Theres no 1.0 player base. The same is already happening to the extended ships. The podcast community continues to belittle and insult people who prefer to have the existing content be playable. ( Mynock squadron is the most recent and hands down the most offensive in this regard). Since 2.0 launched attendance in a 100 mile radius has dropped to less then half. You people can say that extended is still fine, play what you want....but I would remind you that it's also still fine to go to work each day in a horse cart.but you dont see a whole lot of that going on.

    January changes - prepare to be disappointed

    This is one of those moments where it's best that the great " they" doesnt listen to the communities little opinions.
  7. What secondary market? The stores here are chock full of 1.0 ships. They are not rare. Plus...there aren't exactly hordes of new players wishing they could start x wing.
  8. I think if they opened it up to the rest of the ships and just called it X -Wing the miniatures game I could get on board for it. I haven't seen any compelling points that make me think a format with only 2 or 3 power squads is better then a different format with only 2 or 3 power squads. With the main difference being 60 percent of our collections need to be stored in a closet for 2 to 3 years.

    Hyperspace is a stupid format(TM).

    gaming 'online'??

    Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

    Now that all factions only have about 4 ships for tournaments...

    True enough. Which is actually refreshing in a way. It feels good spending my game budget on other things for the foreseeable future.

    Mining Guild - Multiple or Single Support?

    I'm finding 2 surveyors with trick shot fitting into my list building. For me...2 is the sweet spot on that ship.

    Extended will not be an available format. Me " hey guys let's play x wing. I brought a guri list I'm excited to play." The entirety of the player base " eh..no thanks. Tournaments are coming up. We are practicing hyperspace." Me." Oh ok.thats cool. I'll play extended with the other casuals" Looks around.....sees empty game store.

    Must......not......tell....them... I'm not the only one that sees this right? Has nobody else lost entire collections of vintage single action firearms trying to get across a lake somewhere?

    I feel mean letting the math folks squirm. I want to tell them. I want to save them.
