    Xindell reacted to mtomporo in Thank you FFG customer service for helping me Conquer the Weak!   
    Hi, in my last Twilight Imperium game I noticed that I was missing my "Conquer the Weak" objective card. I got in touch with FFG / Asmodee customer service through the website. They quickly responded that they would send me a replacement card and just a couple weeks later, my replacement arrived by UPS!
    I wanted to say thank you because Twilight Imperium 4th. Edition has been my favorite game since I got it and it means a lot to know that FFG / Asmodee cares that I get to enjoy the full-experience everytime that I play.
     
    Thanks!

    At best, I could see a Corellian Conflict type expansion to the new Wave 5 fighters (maybe the R&V too, but I don't think so) soonish, but I don't see truly 'new' fighters for some time.  After Wave 5 hits, there will be a plethora of fighter options out there, and I suspect they will wait until the movies and Rebels provide enough fresh fighter types before they produce another entirely new set of them.

    I love feldherr foam and have it for the first few waves. I recently discovered game plus foam and bags at miniature market which is way cheaper. It's pluck foam and not quite as nice but the cost is a lot less.

    I agree! Nothing says mature and complex like:
     
    Zombie Stormtroopers Multiple Clones of Emperor Palpatine Soontir Fel and Wedge finding ways to get into fist-fights during dogfights, all before they become brother-in-laws and Fel's descendants become the new Emperor line of the Empire An assassin droid having taken over (entirely unbeknownst to the Empire and the Sith Lords aboard) the Second Death Star A literally invulnerable spaceship the size of an RV that destroys enemy capital ships by just crashing through them The fact that for 30 years, the only things of note ever done in the galaxy are done by the same three eldery humans Boba Fett has a lightsaber duel with Vader and sorta wins Ugh, Boba Fettishim in general (like, if the Mandalorians are so bad-assed, why do they let some mercenary sellsword who gets chumped into a desert worm become their Mandalore?) World Devastators... hello superweapon so improbable and goofy it makes Starkiller Base seem like an invention of Da Vinci Revolving door of SURPRISE SITH-LORDs! etc There was a time I could have put "robo-half-Maul" on that list, but LFL and then Disney saw proper to make that canon for some reason...

    Unpopular opinion time

    The old EU after RotJ was 90% unreadable garbage.

    Zahn chiseled out a fine line of quality stories, Stackpole did an awesome job too, everything else was basically a heaping pile of cringeworthy fanservice...

    -Jedi academy trilogy was sheer garbage, literally painful to read
    -Children of the Jedi and darksaber were bad
    -The black fleet crisis had potential then went to crap by the end of the 2nd book... 3rd was almost unreadable...
    -The corellian trilogy never did anything for me...

    From there on out there were a few sub-par Zahn books and then a bunch of Young Jedi comics leading up to the "New Jedi order" era which I can honestly say there wasn't a book written after that point I wasn't happy Disney firebombed....

    The old EU was a crowded mess filled with characters I'm glad to see go.... If scrubbing the scum of Darth Krayt and the One Sith or Jacen and Jaina Solo means losing some of the few better characters of the EU, I'm glad they did it. 


    Also, TFA was pretty good.  It's not complex, rode the nostalgia train pretty hard, but was well written and watchable. Definitely feels like it's setting up for something good.  Last Jedi teasers have me on the edge of my seat. Straight up.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to compare the cards guys! I was hoping that a subtle difference between the first release and the latest release was present (something like Alpha and Beta version of MTG), but oh well...
    As a collector, I figured if I would like to collect more singles, I suppose it's best if I wait a while longer!
     
    Thank you!

    I opened them.  From what I could see they were the same.  That said, I didn't go out of my way trying to find a difference, and I am at work atm so I would have to check later.

    OK, so I grabbed my Jango Fetts, since I know I had 1 from a few months ago and got another in my box this past weekend.  They look identical to me.  I can't see any difference.  Pretty sure they aren't treating this as a different print run for collector purposes.

    Didn't really think the Rhymer change was necessary, but with Sloane coming, maybe it was.  As for the rest, meh, they will have little to no effect on 'my' games.
    I've always preferred correcting issues with future releases, rather than errata, but in the long run, if the changes help the game, then it's all good.

    No, no.  The phrase "one of your" always uses a plural noun.  For example, you would say "I am going to eat one of your fries," not "I am going to eat one of your fry."  Not a single one of those cards uses "dice" as a singular noun.

    Someone previously posted these:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004T6I6RA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
    They are designed to hold 4x6 pictures and I must say I think these are great.  Each large Keeper holds 16 individual cases.  Each case holds 32 dice and leaves very little room for them to shift around.  There are no corners for the dice to rub against and it's a pretty soft plastic.  So a single large Keeper will hold 512 dice, while still being very compact.  While I'm sure the Feldherr will offer a bit more protection, these offer a great mix of protection and organization while remaining compact and reasonably costed.  I have 1 case set aside for trades and can easily pop that one out to take with me to the shop while everything else stays safely at home.
    Anyway, just thought I'd toss another option out there.

    Wait, the Imperials are the "good guys" who are trying to restore order to the universe!  :-)
    From the movies, the Rebels get more screen time so it's probably easier to come up with things for them.
    In all seriousness, I think the cheaper overall cost of Rebel ships allow for more flexibility in fleet building.  Also, more Rebel Admirals appear to be more versatile in fleet building.

    I suppose you should always say what you feel.

    No point in not being true to yourself, but really, and this isn't with a negative inflection at all (because I'm sympathetic to what you're feeling), there's no point in sabotaging a thread full of people enthusiastic about the new wave with the  same flotilla arguments...

    To be sure, your opinions have been heard, and by many, respected, if you wanna talk about that aspect just start another thread, but this is about the new wave m8, let these folks have their fun
