    Not... Entirely true... See, Xwing 1.0 itself has a good game at its core and just about everybody I know likes the core game of Xwing. The problem is that the balance has been like an increasing pendulum swing to the point list building is less toolbox and more specialized NPE scenarios. Hard counters and rule abuse. This is not a fun game. A player can beat an NPE, but it doesn't make that game fun. A player is highly unlikely to beat a hard counter, which is not fun. An extremely skilled player of course will likely beat both if they out skill their opponents, true, but 90% (spitballing here) is not going to have fun. I don't expect perfection in 2.0 but I'm hopeful that FFG can maintain a fun game.

    Escorted by highly trained Ewok Death Commandos. You can tell by the unflinching way that they follow the shuttle.

    But what if Luke gunner on Dash is an option? My iPad is so slow...

    Now that's an interesting change to the HWK. I like it. Now... Jan Ors please?

    Wow... 4 per match is still pretty much most matches worth of Sabine-ning(?) In a way, gee, not an extra damage. In another way... let the ion bomb to bomb commence?

    Anybody else predicting another forum explosion in a couple of hours protesting the FFG opening of the conversion kit? It feels like a lot people are expecting full reveal of much of the contents, all dials, all factions.... I get the distinct impression it's going to be much more high level of a single box just to provide an expectation of what the kits will contain.

    Isn’t the wind rushing by an issue?

    Local shop uses two tables put together, so we've got 6" on either side of the map for cards VTTV seems to like the weird stuff I bring so I've found myself at the roomy streaming table a fair bit Nationals/Regionals I play pretty much with everything in my lap and not the way I'd like too...

    I like to line up my shields next to my pilot card, in a row so it's obvious how much is there. Display that artwork for all to see. Which is why I form a pile of spent shields off to a corner instead of just sliding things off. Now with flippy, should I flip-flop and choose to be flippy, I can leave them in that line and flip them there. I think I need to get more tins to drop tokens in going forward. So many different types of tokens... just when I phased the last of my cardboard tokens out too.

    I've marked mine with an itty bitty dot in green on one side, and red on the other. I flip from green to red when I take a hit. Trust me.

    I think I'm going to continue to remove tokens instead of flipping them, if only for clarity and making sure I get to it. By end of day I'm very prone to error, and I'd rather maintain some of that muscle memory to reduce the workload.

    Yeesh. You did have all the 'fun' players in your local meta, didn't you? Yes, token watching is going to be fun... particularly with "flipping" of tokens, instead of removing them.
