    Just want to take a second to say I think we should realize how ridiculous a lot of us are. Discussion point a week ago- “Extended opens the game up to so many more pilots and upgrades that will inevitably create issues you don’t have in the 2.0 format. 2.0 should be the standard.” point now- “Boba is the best pilot in extended.”

    Sooo anyone willing to give me a run down of what we learned from the gold squadron classic? I haven’t seen any “THIS IS OP NEEDZ NERFZ” threads so I’m assuming it was pretty varied?

    For everyone saying two ship lists are dead...

    Oh so it was a one day event? That’s awesome to hear! Were lists pretty varied?

    I refuse to accept the notion that things need to be power creeped to sell. Balanced new things should sell perfectly well as long as they have interesting and compelling mechanics. It’s a very Spike oriented mentality to believe things need to continue to be better and better to continue to sell. There are tons of Johnnys and Tims who like new things because they’re new and bring new ways to play the game, not because they need to buy things just to keep up at the monthly tournament.

    I fully expect the business plan is for FFG to have the 2.0 expansions for the conversion kit ships on shelves well before the 1.0 stock becomes entirely unavailable. Whether that actually happens though is a better question.

    I understand 2.0 format is good for new players. But the issue of the haves and (new player) have-nots was going to happen no matter what. If not now, then a year or two from now when we have all the 2.0 expansions caught up and we are back where we were in 1.0 for new players. While it did stumble a little down the line, new players did join 1.0 without much issue even 7-9 waves in. It’s nice we have a limited wave option available at all in my opinion. We didn’t have that in 1.0. It’s difficult to make an argument that high level tournaments shouldn’t cater the fully invested high level buyers, and low level tournaments to the entry level buyers. I think they are doing their best to ride the line and appease both sides.

    I know it’s still early, but can we agree to be pleasantly surprised at how wholesome extended has been, at least for the time being? It may just be “all the new things weeeee!” mentality keeping us from going into a degenerate place, but I don’t think I’ve had a single game yet where I’ve had a single “that’s totally not fun and I feel robbed” moment yet. Also, I think second edition format being the standard would have been awkward. Do we just use material from the core and expansions? What about the xwing and Ywing pilots in the conversions? Are they acceptable? No? So you’re telling me we can’t use the conversion kit iconic characters ever? At what point does the conversion become second edition? Never?
  8. Also agree with this and that @Marinealver is the minority.

  10. Yes I should have been clearer. I’ve been testing trajectory punishers and I have found the 5 was the correct choice often enough that it’s not terribly valuable to spend the points on the bombadier.
  11. Not even sure you need the bombardier. If you have the points, sure, but trajectory almost always did enough of the trick to wreck swarms for me.
  12. Uhhh. This needs to be publicized more. These vids were exactly what I was looking for during the wait for 2.0.

    Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0

    Exactly the same experience. Doesn’t matter how pretty the builder is if it doesn’t have the same simplicity.

    Shellshocked

    Part of me thinks that’s the best spot for ordnance happy platforms though. They just seem to lean too far in one direction or the other, so might as well just leave them below the power curve and let them provide niche roles.

    Is the game still healthy?

    The game may be healthy enough, but I'm starting to really worry about vassal. Perhaps it will take until the excitement over the physical product wears down, but it's been just as bare post release as pre release.
