    Lambot got a reaction from Plainsman in Cash Prize Tournaments...a good or bad idea?   
    I think that was Raleigh, NC and I think part of the problem people had was the $50 entry more than it being a cash tournament

    The thing that's bugging me more this year is one of the local stores that is only allowing regulars to play in their event

    Lambot got a reaction from Brockart in Alternate Art Trandoshan Slaver?   
    So to start of with, I made these cards to extend the participation prizes at my store championship. I knew I'd get more than 32 players so I made my own promos so everyone would get one. The guy who listed it on ebay contacted me and has taken it down. He didn't know it wasn't an official promo. The corran card I gave out to the top 10. Here's a pic of the promos (stolen from Engine25)

    Hey fellow Dragoncon attendees! A few of the guys from FCB (host of this years Atlanta regional and the FCB-wing twitch stream) will be running demo games all weekend starting Friday. So if you're coming to dragoncon, come out, get a game or two in. We should have some 501st, madalorian mercs and rebel legion on hand, in costume to cheer everyone on.

    Lambot reacted to Killerardvark in so let me get this straight about ffg software   
    Cryodex engineer here...
     
    First of all, I've spoken with FFG Legal and they have no problem with me existing. They did request a logo change early on and I complied with that.
     
    My software follows the rules as defined in the document. Plain and simple. They are going through the process of getting theirs to be accurate. Fortunately for them, they can just change the rule book instead of fixing the software. I'm sure at some point the two will be aligned and we can all move forward.
     
    People who suggested they buy Cryodex are a little mislead. It doesn't make a lot of sense. Cryodex is not web based and that seems to be a big goal of theirs. I did look into working for FFG in software development, but they do not allow remote employees and they simply could not afford to make this my primary job. The big problem I've had with them is their lack of willingness to collaborate with myself or other stakeholders in the community like the ListJuggler folks or other predominant TOs. When I created Cryodex, I sought help from anyone who would give it. The quick and detailed feedback allowed me to go from a fledgling piece of software to the tournament running powerhouse it is today. The other major mistake was releasing the beta for regionals instead of store championships. Regionals are so much bigger and more important. Mistakes in software can really shake things up and bother people. Smaller events would have made more sense and gotten more feedback.
     
    Sorry, rant over...
     
    So what's the future for Cryodex? I'll keep it up and running until a better option is widely available to the public. If TOME ever gets to that point, I'll happily retire and throw a party. Then onto whatever my next project is.
     
    As for the new tournament rules, I will not be implementing them until closer to January. I feel like the current changes are in quite the state of fluctuation so I'll wait till things settle. Hard to follow a system that says "Here are the rules, except for our software, but we declare its rules legal just because." Cryodex is solid as is and has no "official" tournaments left to run this year.

    Our Regional Tournament Broadcast was a huge success!  Big thanks to everyone who tuned in during our 18 hour show!
     
    But the action must continue, as the war is never over.  We return tonight with two more Featured Matches.
     
    First, at 7:30, series regular The TableTopGeneral accepts a challenge from show newcomer The Economist.  The General will be playing Scum and The Economist will be playing Rebels.  Then, ThatHandsomeNick returns to the series to fly Rebels against Newcomer Jim's Empire Squad.
     
    Then, in a bonus match, series host Engine25 (that's me!) will play a viewer-selected list against an as yet unknown opponent.
     
    Tune in at 7:30 for some great X-wing!  Can't wait to go back on the air!

    I was mostly surprised about the defender because there's always that one die hard fan. I could see the Syck, they're tie fighters with a worse dial. I'm not worried about the advanced mostly because I figure I'll be tired of seeing it once the raider comes out
