    Did they cancel the dial covers?

    The product update page is completely and totally worthless until a product reaches the "Shipping" or "In Stores Now" stage. If you will note, nothing from wave 3 is even on there. Nothing. FFG cannot even be bothered to add them to their own page despite all local and online shops having them up for pre-order.

    "Luck" tokens...

    I do not think Scum need anything else special. First and foremost tokens that only they can use... every faction already gets 1 pilot ability unique to them, we do not need to go down the road of tokens as well.

    Is there a miniature quality drop coming with 2.0?

    Aside from needing to clean Saw's X-wing's S-foils (after which they work perfectly), and a sticky Fang Fighter (easily corrected) there have been no issues with 2.0 Models. In fact most of them seem to be of a higher quality standard than most of the stuff in 1.0. The Y-Wing looks loads better, and it is nice to have an actual turret on them. The X-wing is higher quality, and opens / closes s-foils. I mean nearly every one of my 1.0 X-wings had blaster cannons that went in four different directions. The new ones are all lined up. It looks nice. The Fang has a crisper paint job. The Firespray's angle makes it looks soooooo much better. And the paint is also crisper on it. The T-70 looks so nice with closed s-foils... My mining guild tie is perfectly painted, with an immaculately centered logo. The RZ-2 aside from seeming a touch small, is very well detailed. So... in my summation, 2.0 has higher quality models than 1.0. And, I too will buy buckets of B-wings if they have flappy s-foils and rotating cockpits.

    And tlt is?

    Harpoon Missile cost the same as Torpedoes (4pts in 1.0), but only required a lock - they did not spend the Lock to fire. So you can use the lock to reroll when you fire (like 2.0 munitions). The threw 4 red dice at ranges 2-3. Then they assigned the 'Harpooned!' condition if they hit. Here's the link to 'Harpooned!' and the text is quoted below. It replaced all other munitions aside from Prockets. It was cheap, powerful, re-loadable, and the condition is bonkers. Because the crit set off the condition and then you still get a crit that they have to deal with. 3x Starwings with these things could trigger chain insanity. First missile hits, leaves condition, second hits with a crit - triggering condition. Then reapplies condition. And so on...
  5. I find them absolutely awful. I can barely make them out in pictures. I would insist, loudly and annoyingly, that you use cardboard over them in a game.

    Wildly disappointed in the quality of Wave Champiosnhip kits.

    Those metal charge coins are awful in the worst way.

    And tlt is?

    It was a foul and loathsome curse placed upon X-Wing 1.0 that was only eclipsed in sheer NPE derpitude by the Harpoon Missile. May both never return to X-wing ever.

    Clone Wars Starmaps Voting Thread

    I just really really want to emphasize how much I agree. I've wanted this star map since Rogue One came out.

    Putting a Face to the Name: Pilots

    My mind swears that this is supposed to be a sideways nod to Roy Fokker from Robotech, gender swapped (I think). For one thing... Rekkoff's subtitle is "Skull Squadron Ace" - that's what Roy was in Robotech, well, technically he was also Skull Leader, but he was the SDF-1s Ace Pilot in Skull Squadron before his (stupid) death. Another small detail - as weird as it is, in Star Wars Battlefront II you overhear some fighter conversations during the Battle of Jakku. Temmin Wexley is there. To quote from wookiepedia " After the New Republic's Galactic Senate voted to intervene on Jakku, the New Republic dispatched military forces to the planet. Several New Republic figures including Admiral Ackbar, Commodore Kyrsta Agate, Captain Wedge Antilles, Temmin Wexley, and Jom Barell would see action in the cataclysmic Battle of Jakku.[12] The battle would take place one year and four days after the Battle of Endor."

    Upcoming page updated

    I believe that Dec 13th is US release date. I'm basing this on my FLGS updating their order list (they usually do this about 2 weeks or so before release) and the fact that usually, in the old days when you could trust the FFG updates page, shipping meant almost exactly 2 weeks.

    Rebel Players: Is It Worth Continuing to Play until January?

    I've played only about 8 games of 2.0. 6 of them have been Rebel lists (1 empire, 1 scum). I have 6 wins. 5 are Rebel, and 1 is scum. The one time I lost as Rebels, I decided to try out an E-Wing. E-wings are garbage fires right now, but I nearly pulled it off anyways. (The list I lost to was Rebels, that did not take an E-wing handicap). None of my Rebel lists have been the same. But I do use a lot of X-wings and B-wings. Both are fantastic ships now. As is the U-Wing. But that's my mileage. It will undoubtedly be different from everyone other person's.

    Is the Q4 release date of Wave II realistic?

    The upgrade kits I'd say unlikely... the minis I'd guess at being a firm 'hahahaha... No'. But who actually knows. Ever since the Asmodee assimilation the Upcoming page has been nearly useless for anything that does not say "Shipping" or "In Stores". As it stands the Upgrade kits are "at the printer." The new SWRPG book "Rise of the Separatists" has been on the boat for almost 10 weeks. But no one knows what that really means. On the ship, off the ship but on the docks, stuck in FFG's warehouse - these are all possibilities. Something being printed is even more vague. So... the chances are really good that, no, no we will not be seeing anything from Wave 2 this year. That all being said, I do hope to be pleasantly surprised and they both somehow release this year.

    Brace yourself... (Holidays & Star Wars don't mix)

    It's another one of those "These are the Reasons I hate other Star Wars fans" threads. Here is how I view things, because I'm a fan and if I read all of your nonsense, you can read mine. There are good things and bad things about every single one of the movies. There are certainly modern* plot holes in them - BUT, and that is a giant red "but," 99.9% of all Movies ever made contain at least 1 Modern* plot hole (I'm not saying 100% because there may be that miraculous one film that does not, but I honestly doubt it.) The corollary being that there is a bizarre Modern* trend to identify anything as a plot hole - a plot hole is a problem with the story moving from A to B to C, or something that in some way directly contradicts the story in an earlier scene (an example would be something like the Cameras in Hotel Transylvania 2 - in the beginning they don't capture vampires, but later on they can totally use cellphone cameras - these two things work on the same principle and both are cameras - that's a real plot hole, still a fun movie but that did drive me nuts**). Making up stuff about "Why didn't the vampire monster bug have her meeting place in a place where there wouldn't be windows" is not a plot hole. It's a nit pick. Yes, there is a trend in the modern world to conflate loose ends or imagined scenarios as 'plot holes,' they are not, but people still do this. There is nothing story inconsistent with the Vampire Bug monster meeting in that specific room. Nothing. That's a nit-pick built off of an imagined scenario. And let me conclude by saying, you are free to hate me too. It seems only natural for Star Wars fans to hate each other. * Modern, yes, I'm being facetious and using modern plot hole to mean 'nit-pick.' I couldn't tell you what percentage of movies contain real honest plot-holes. There are lots (almost anything MST3K'd) but there are also lots of movies in which the plot works perfectly fine. Does this mean the plot is amazing? No. It just means that the story (or plot) follows from A to B to C smoothly, and without contradiction. ** Lets see who I piss off here.

    How do you avoid buying every faction..?

    I don't understand the question. It makes no sense.
