  1. Ok so the important information in this article that no one seems to have discussed yet.... The product numbers and ID tokens. Heroes of the Resistance was SWX57. Protectorate Starfighter had ID 60. Sabine's TIE is SWX59 with ID token 64, Shuttle is SWX60 with 65 and Quad is SWX61 66. Which seems to me to mean we've got one more product coming with three ID tokens. Very interesting. At least to me.
  2. Applied Perspectives is awesome! I love my mirror finish range set.
  3. What's the "base game" in X-Wing? Something is Pay To Win if it provides an advantage over a "base game" player for just money. We're in agreement on that, yes? What then is our base game player? This is the point on which Rapture and I fundamentally disagreed. Exactly correct. I agree completely. There is no base game. No one is at a disadvantage based on what purchases other people made because in order to play you have to make an equal amount of purchases.
  4. In order for some people to "pay-to-win" some other group needs to not pay and not be able to win. Since every expansion costs money and each person chooses what they buy X wing can not be "pay-to-win".
  5. There has been some good defense for this expansion listed here. Good enough that I have now added it to my list of things to buy. I realized that I can skip the T70 expansion so thereby eliminate some redundancy. And as has been said multiple YT1300 lists are possible, we'll just have to see how this works.
  6. I don't get why people categorise ships by how many you can spam. What is it with people and spam? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anwy2MPT5RE
  7. Or they could just make it a title? TIE/SF TIE-FO only. title. You upgrade bar gains <crew> slot and <turret> slot. 2 points. Please don't take this personally, but..... that would be UTTER CRAP! To come out with a "new mold" of a ship that is barely needed in multiples and then nothing but a card for a ship that was BLATANTLY DESIGNED in the films to be run in multiples? I honestly think that would make me stop playing.
  8. My local had it advertised online to be happening. I showed up and there wasn't squat going on. So I headed out to my local game club and spent some money there.
  9. I was a bit disappointed. I would have preferred something new. Though I noticed it's code is SWX57 so there will be lots more to see.
  10. Hilton Head Island South Carolina USA here. I play at a game club called Roll Initiative in Bluffton, at my house or on camping trips with friends in Georgia.
  11. I agree, but I do it a little different. I research products online. Once I decide what I want I call a local store that is close and ask them to set one back, then I go pick it up. That way I don't have to go store to store shopping or wait for it to arrive. As far as supporting my LGS, I have 2 and I try to divide my spending between them. It is a no brainier for me. They both offer a 10% discount that goes up to 20% on purchases of $100 or more. I utilize the gaming tables in both of them almost every weekend. I want to continue to use their gaming space in the future, therefore I will continue to support them through buying from them. Of course it's easier for me since my cost isn't much more than it would be buying online as I make $100+ purchases. I don't have a lgs or even a shop that sells x-wing so I'm paying more for nothing. I feel bad for you. I understand your difficulty. Of course according to everyone else around here your are a terrible person for not driving hours and hours to pay more in a store.
  12. If you have a Friendly Local Wagonwheel Dealer, please shop there. If you don't have a FLWD, it may be because of the new fangled rubber tires making it impossible for a LWD to sell at competitive prices. This new structure should (hopefully) lead to more LWDs. If your LWD isn't F enough, buy some stuff (like whips and horeshoes) and be kind and hopefully the rubber tires are a fad. If you live in an area that has paved roads, thank your fellow man for buying an auto mobile, but you're still screwed. edit: misplaced anachronisms Until you can play X Wing on the Cool Stuff Inc website this remain the moronic logical fallacy we can all see it for. Check their locations. I bet they have something going on there. http://www.coolstuffgames.com/#
  13. How is that even an argument? I can't even comprehend that. Money is money. Money represents hours of my life. Who gives a **** what the category of the expenditure is? Would it be more upsetting if it were raising prices on meds? I don't get it.....The point is you want to support the LGS as the Manufacturer? Fine. There are better ways to do it then screwing the End Customer. ...Holy **** the amount of misinformation and childish entitlement in these posts is staggering.. First of all, a coalition of LGS owners formed and petitioned FFG to do this because your penny pinching was seriously effecting their livelyhood and their stores are what carry this game. Disney had nothing to do with it and in the end neither they or FFG make any more money this way except in that if the LGSs go under or decide to boycott like they threatened the game will instantly tank. And I'm sorry but you being able to pay a couple dollars less on a toy is not more important then store owners being able to pay their bills. The game will not tank. PLENTY of places have NO FLGS. They never have and they never will. And guess what? People play games there. The internet does EXACTLY what it should. It connects them and lets them get the materials and supplies they want. Then Asmodee hurts these people who have NO access and spoiled people like you who do have somewhere to go applaud them getting screwed. This is bad for some people. And narrow minded selfish people would rather cheer it then recognize in today's age we live in a global market that has the internet to get people what they need rather than indiscriminately harm them. Oh grow up, its a couple dollars more for a toy not fifty grand for a life saving medicine. The MSRP is the same all FFG did was limit online stores ability to undercut because they don't have to pay rent or a workforce. You can still buy from the same place you always did you just now have to actually pay closer to full price like the rest of us. If anything the onlines were guilty of price gouging using their lack of overhead to beat out retail get off your highhorse and suck it up. I'm not the one on the high horse. I am delighted after 15 years to actually HAVE a place to CHOOSE to spend my money locally. You all are the ones on the high horse IGNORING the fact that some have NO WHERE to go but now have to spend more online for no reason. They have to do this to support some business in some other place that they have no access to but would be glad to if they could. That is what really gets me PO'd. As I already said several times. People without access to gaming stores have to spend more online because somebody wants to influence them to go somewhere that doesn't exist in an attempt to make it better for some businesses that are struggling. That actually makes sense to you? To anyone? How is that fair competition when there is NO competition?

  15. The mere idea that prices can never go up, is so amazing shortsighted... Words fail me. But as you point out Asmodee thinks this will make their games stronger in the long run, which means according to their PoV more profitable. As shocking as this may be to some people, a good company isn't interested in a quick buck, because they know that over the long run they will make a ton more money by offering a good product that people are happy to buy. So they reduced the discount to people who in their opinion aren't doing as much to support these games as other places do. If they're right, that means the LGS becomes stronger, which in turn makes the community larger, which means more profits. Again I'll point out that FFG games are much more heavily discounted than other games, most getting less than 10% vs FFGs getting 25-33%. That means X-Wing still has a more attractive discount then Infinity or Flames of War or other games. Well it's a good thing EVERYONE EVERYWHERE has one of these FLGSs to benefit from this.... Oh wait...
