    Pretty Green got a reaction from Odanan in X-wing ships and real life counterparts?   
    Slow day at work, here´s my take on this subject:

    TIE Fighters are clearly Bf 109 E, fast and agile, but lacking a bit in firepower.
    TIE Advanced = Bf 109 K-4, more powerful armament.
    TIE Interceptor would be FW 190 A-8. Fast and made for hit and run attacks.
    TIE Defender = Me 262, the most advanced fighter Empire has.
    Rebels:
    Headhunters are Hurricanes, the workhorses.
    Arc = Il-2 Sturmovik, tanks with gunners.
    X-Wing = P40 E-1 Kittyhawk, good all-rounder.
    A-Wing = Spitfire V B, fast and agile.
    B-Wing = P47 Thunderbolt. Large, hits hard.

    Pretty Green got a reaction from heychadwick in Have you finished a 2.0 match before time was called?   
    I play mostly with a group of friends. All matches to the death, no time limit.
    Takes usually 30 min to 1,5 hours, maybe 2. Much more fun than time limits and chasing most valuable points and then running away.

    Yeah, despite I play only Imperial, in a twisted way I´m glad to see the Rebels do well after reading all the forum whining that they are no good and these and these Empire ships are undercosted.

    That's a lot of Rebel lists for an 'unplayable faction'.
    Looking forward to seeing how all the experts spin this to keep the narrative going. 
    Congrats to the winner. Going purely by lists, I'm a little sad for the runner up. There's something about the partnership of Boba Fett and Guri winning a major tournament I really like. 
    It's nice to see familiar faces (shut up, Guri counts, SotE was awesome) doing well, but it's even better in light of how bad they were in 1e.

    Pretty Green got a reaction from Damo1701 in Primary and turret arc and abilities   
    So torpedoes will not give me forward arc, but I can shoot them only from my forward arc from Decimator? If my turret arc is sideways, wouldn´t the ship cover 270 degrees then?

    Am I the only one who can´t read missiles and torpedoes properly, or all ranges restricted to just one range, e.g. no more 2-3 or 1-2 but 2 or 1?
    They all seem to have just one number and "Weapon range no bonus"

    Pretty Green got a reaction from Icelom in [STRAW POLL] Who would be interested in an "X-wing 2.0 Balance Mod"?   
    Now let´s see...

    "I have demonstrated capability (at present seemingly uniquely) to predict relevant point costs far better than FFG's development and playtesting process. I can do things that nobody in their entire company seems to be anywhere close to doing"
    As someone here pointed out earlier, nothing has been released yet, still you claim to do it better than them? Besides Brobots just won the Worlds, according to your data they could not have won.
    I "invented" Commonwealth Defenders as soon as the Imperial Veterans preview came out. Upon release it immediately won multiple nationals.
    -You did not "invent" it. Everyone who had eyes could see that Imperial Veterans would be very good and had used similiar lists. Stating the obvious doesn´t make you a very good oracle.
      I predicted that PS11 Rebel Fenn + Hotshot co-pilot was an absurdly strong piece. (Again, >100% efficiency on PS11 leads to easy conclusions). 
    -Same thing here, as you admit, easy conclusions.

    Talking about your Fairship rebels miscalculations.. When that was pointed out in this thread, you hid behind your scientific method and refused to answer. Sure, it´s easier to calculate things when there are clear results. But that´s just tinkering afterwards, not predicting or a perfect calculation method you claim to have.

    Anyway, even if FFG doesn´t get everything right at the launch of 2.0, they can now easily modify the point costs and a lot of other stuff as well. So yeah, an app will be a lot better than just your jousting value. I too value your work to some extent, but man you did come off so ego-centric and narsissistic about this, "being the only one who can do this". Did it ever occur to you that no one with mathematical education here just did not want to use their time on calculating jousting values to plastic ships?
    It´s FFG´s job and they did not know how big the game was going to be. And now the mistakes they have made with the point costs are being fixed with an app, so good times are coming.

    Pretty Green got a reaction from Odanan in What are the designers really doing?   
    I agree with the subject. Seems that the designers' solution to all under-performing ships is to add them boost and/or barrel roll.
    Ships used to be different, factions too. Now everything feels almost the same. Well, all but regeneration.

    Really? They became available in G4H. You're crying for the Nerf Bat already? I'm beginning to think that all it takes is two or three losses to relatively new technology and everyone rallies around the Nerf flag.

    Luke was not killed by Kylo Ren. How are people not understanding this? How are people not understanding this?

    Luke put every last bit of himself into that projection. Into appearing elsewhere. He did it knowing it would be the last, final thing he could and would do. He did it, because he needed to confront Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren needed to confront him. But it was too much for Luke to truly handle without dying. That kind of effort in The Force...

    Nobody killed Luke.

    He went to that Island to die.

    And that is what he did.
