    Curb your Packaging FFG

    There’s something uniquely odd about buying plastic ships though and complaining about plastic packaging!

    I know and understand it... I just hate that society has reached this point and also know that will be a long road to improvement.

    How’s it feel to be the only one making the correct decision for a change? 😆

    Yep. My wife laughed and rolled her eyes when she saw the size of the blister. Not as bad as the one USB stick I took a photo of in a 12”x18” plastic blister, but it s pretty bad.

    Impervium Plating Vs Hull upgrade

    Feels like a high risk/reward type card... in that the risk is you're paying a lot of points for a card that may flop on you. Might never get hit by a crit, but if you do it feels pretty darn good just to throw a card of damage or two away, let alone face up ones.

    Dang it... was hoping for a more direct Guri joke. So I realize I’m likely among the first wave to purchase the new ships but have been totally unable to use them. Anybody got direct feedback on droids yet?

    Still Rebels. Got droids to fly for a bit though

    Somebody had a youtube video on the conversion... I recall watching it. Think it was even linked from the painting sub-forum... It's been a few years though...

    Depends on in store mark up, where a number of stores inflate well beyond MSRP. The different gaming stores have a wide variation on pricing. That said, our local shop is bang on so I got little to complain about. I'm still watching that Upsilon on Amazon... it's now cheaper to order and ship from the US than it is to pick up anywhere I know of in Canada. Hard to justify that purchase now though... so many droids will rise up and protest the out of faction purchase. The great droid revolt. Taking advantage of currency exchanges is great... It's part of why our GenCon run is an annual trek. Sales get a slight... adjustment... in conversion.

    Hooray. Upsilons on sale at Amazon for 12 bucks.

    Almost there.... .... Almost there.....

    I'm in on chaos lists. The less my opponent knows what I'm doing the more time I have to figure out what I'm doing... ...or something like that.

    I can't see the picture on this network, but I can see the "monopoly money" text and agree

    Ok, now that we've all had our complaints in about the new surprise ship additions to Hyperspace, can we talk about something that really matters? Like, how much weight my wallet has lost suddenly? I mean, that much weight loss suggests something serious... If I pick up a second strife I'll be clear over $200 without touching a Republic ship... I hope I find a combo of droid ships that feels good.

    Totally agree!

    Meh. Not worth getting frustrated. This is a "feels" type scenario and you're not going to convince people that their feelings are wrong. Say your piece and move on.

    As much as I agree, no secrets were released so it was purely portrayed personality. Call outs won't fix that, it has to be dealt with inside the local community.

    Maybe. Oddly enough, I'm actually less concerned about the ships added when it comes to balance issues.

    After having faced Ys... and using one on occasion... I'm not all that worried about them. Sure, I can still lose against them and won't feel bad doing so... Range 2-3 isn't so bad - particularly that range 3 band. They're just rolling dice and hoping for hits. Barrage? Yeah... I've faced that back in September. If you can get the range control for the opening combat it's likely an easier match, but it all comes down to that one key moment. Guess wrong and "whoops!" It'll punish certain types of lists that aren't quick enough, or thick enough to absorb the hits. We'll see anyway. I'm no meta analysis expert.

    You'll note I don't necessarily disagree with these points. In fact, most are in my #1 good point.

    I agree with your take that it's very like 5Y. Harder to range control the bracket that barrage bombers have compared to the turret double tap of the Ys... the TIE Bombers are also a heck of a lot more accurate. I think it's better than five Ys... but as I said, don't think it's going to be the top list in town when the dust settles.

    Oh heck - I don't care about the trial season. My initial reaction was "GREAT!" because certain people who are play testers were being a bit arrogant about their chances in Trials based on their experiences with Wave III testing. They didn't see this coming. Your second point though - yes. It's all about the timing of product availability.

    I don't actually mind Guri that much. Barrage Bombers: Jonus and four Scimitars - all with barrage rockets, and even a 2 point bid for Rebel Beef matchups? Seems pretty good. Maybe not top tier, but that's pretty potent. They were pretty solid before when used well, don't see why they wouldn't be now.

    As usual there is good and bad. GOOD: Strongly preferred movie ships were added for Rebel, Scum and Imperials (and seemingly main reason for a lot of complaints from the Extended crowd) ... um.... BAD: Timing is odd - product not available for new players, not even on the horizon in some cases Concerns regarding balance... Faction imbalance increased - so many more ships for Rebels, Imperials, SCUM than anything the other groups have I'm really quite on the fence. I was initially very excited but the more I've looked the more concerned I've become.
