  1. Rewrite the Captain Phasma story like Captain America the super soldier. Created by the empire, thawed out by the first order. Critters, with bloodthirsty Porg. Harry and the Hendersons with a Wampa. It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Through space. ...for starters
  2. One step closer to an ETA-2 Actis Jedi Starfighter on my table.
  3. At the 3:35 mark. Too fuzzy when zooming in to read it on my phone.
  4. I haven't seen the card. An internet search brought this up. Don't know where they sourced the info, though... http://xhud.sirjorj.com/xwing.cgi/pilot2?pilot=overseeryushyn
  5. As said here, flanking is just splitting your force. When the center of engagement changes, so too do your (and their) flanks. Some ships are better than others at fleeing when they, as the flanking ship, become the enemy's focus. And it will happen occasionally that your intended flanker will be sought out. But if your intended flanking ship is habitually/perpetually the center of attention, then you either need to slow its role, or ramp up the rest of your squad - and that can happen either through flight paths or through list composition.
  6. List composition, deployment, flying, choice of action, etc. There are a lot of variables that could affect your chance of winning. Need more specifics on what/how you flew, as just pasting a list that has beaten that squad won't help. But the best advice I can give is:
  7. When possible, storing mats flat is best. That matters much more for vinyl mats than the mousepad type though. To bring mine to game night, they actually came with a zippered cloth bag, but it's slightly too short to easily get them inside. If I ever start regularly bringing mine with me, I'd look into the plastic document tubes on amazon. For like $20 they are adjustable with a shoulder strap.
  8. I use one of these I found on Ebay for templates, damage deck, and to store dice. I use the harbor freight line laser. Straight as an arrow, comes mounted to a removable flat base, and was only $4. To transport to game night, depending on how much I'm bringing, I've used padded lunch boxes, a roughly 12x9x2 box with magnetic close from ikea, and 12x12x12 padded pizza carrying cases with homemade foam inserts for a faction worth of ships. Along with the standard Plano 1374 carrying the tokens, based, and card binders.
  9. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." - a focused Boba Fett.
  10. There ain't no party like a 2.0 launch party 'cuz a 2.0 launch party don't start for less than the GDP of a small village. Seems a shame that it didn't have an order code like the game night kits with a 1 per store restriction. At least the min order sounds like a box quantity rather than a dollar amount... since the retailer cost of the promo damage decks isn't included in their purchase order price to count toward a cost threshold.
  11. I wanted to make a pushing the envelope joke about the article that they just mailed it in... but they've done good.
  12. If they include Ewok names like Kettch, I'm in. Or just give us a Lt. Kettch pilot that can copy other pilot's abilities/initiative that aren't already fielded in your squad. Since anyone can be Kettch. #WeAreKettch.
  13. Blue Squadron B-Wing Pilot Blue Squadron U-Wing U-Winger Blue Squadron Y-Wing Bomber Blue Squadron X-Wing Escort Indeed.
  14. Blue Squadron had B-Wings, U-Wings, X-Wings, and Y-Wings. Without giving each pilot a unique call sign, is there a way to clearly distinguish generic pilots for each?
  15. In a couple years when 1.0 products aren't available, all of our 1.0 cards can be used as rare alt art. Until then, it'll sit quietly in a box. I was going to unsleeve all the cards, but it's so many cards that it's worth buying more sleeves for 2.0 instead of spending those hours sorting.
  16. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/8/22/scramble-the-fighters/ But don't get too excited before clicking. Very sparse info in there. They basically tell you to ask your local store for details.

    Best football qb currently playing. Green Bay Packer. Lebron. Yawn. Don't know but the name seems familiar. Definitely sports though. Overrated Yankee baseball guy. Also yawn. I think he retired?
  18. By that logic, in ANH dead Obi Wan starts talking to Luke in his ship with no prior explanation. When he died his body just vaporized like nobody else ever has. So ANH makes zero sense as a stand alone. The crawl doesn't have to spell out every character profile in the film. ESB's tell you why we're on an ice planet and why it's being attacked. The writing gets us the rest of the way through the movie. In TLJ the crawl talks about Snoke, not Kylo. About bringing Skywalker back, not training Rey. No mention of Rey v Kylo inner conflict. Nothing about weak rebel leadership and headstrong pilots. You must have seen TFA for 3/4 of it to make sense.
  19. Where TLJ makes no sense without first watching TFA, the opening crawl for ESB does give you enough info to watch it without seeing ANH. Regarding writing the TLJ opening crawl, the quote from the director at the bottom of this article is poop: https://comicbook.com/starwars/2017/12/14/star-wars-the-last-jedi-opening-crawl-text/

  21. TIE Aggressors. They need more turrets and have to come with at least 1 more that could be categorized as an aggressive weapon. Scyks. Give me a reason to spam them. Also give them pointy front wings.
