  1. We've tried to kill this thread with that exact sentiment more times than I care to count. Odds are our local troll will post something useless (again) and continue to call us sheeple because reasons.
  2. Don't mind him. He's already been banned once. His advice is also useless, so there's really no reason to read anything he writes. Just do yourself a favor and put him on ignore.
  3. Baaaaa baaaaaaa! I'll take the word over people that actually work in the industry over some random person on the internet who is way too in love with the word "sheep." Going from three card sizes to one saves them money. But hey, what do FFG employees know about their own products? I'm sure they just want to randomly antagonize their own fans for no reason instead. Do I like the change? Nope, I've said so in plenty of places? Do I care to say anything more about this? Nope. It's a waste of my time to even talk about it for this long. Now please go get yourself banned again @Revan Reborn
  4. This thread is STILL GOING?! Goodness people, it's a simple cost saving measure. Oh no, cards are bigger! The world is ending! Seriously, find something actually useful to care about. Seeing as most game companies not named Games Workshop routinely struggle, I think saving some production cost is forgivable. I for one would rather have games than, you know...not. I'll never have sympathy for customers of luxury game. It is the whitest of entitlement. I will care about their employees being abused all day long, which I very much hold against Asmodee after the lay offs. Where was this outrage over the lay offs? But card size? Really? Get over it.
  5. His point is really just that you should wait and see the whole rule. This raid thread is an example of just how silly it is to make any kind of conclusions from partially revealed rules. In this thread, people predicted the raid mechanic would ruin the game. Instead, it turned out FFG was very reluctant to make such a mechanic very powerful, and we ended up with something that was just fine. Hardly the game killer predicted here. In the other thread, you said: While you are hardly being the hyperbolic alarmist seen in this thread, you are making large conclusions based on very little overall information. It's not hard to see the similarities.
  6. I blame @shmitty. @BiggsIRL is currently half dead from work and I was on play by play duty. Therefore, it's Shmitty's fault
  7. After having so much fun with the GENCON live show, we at Steel Strategy thought up a new idea to try out. Here's our first video of what will hopefully become recurring content. Introducing Mystery Fleet Theater! The goal is rather than make you sit through 2+ hours for a battle report video, we speed up the game video and provide quick commentary. Our hope is that it provides more quickly and easily digestible battle reports you can enjoy on your lunch break. The first video clocks in at only 20 minutes Enjoy!
  8. A few of us have contacted FFG directly about this very story. We were told they were aware of the story and had passed it up the corporate chain. Unfortunately, the folks available to take these types of questions are not the people who can answer them. My understanding is there have been more than a few people asking, so I hope we'll get an answer.
  9. Nope. Leia OP. @geek19 has no excuse for losing anymore.
  10. They definitely alluded to as much. The pass token discussion was cryptic. I can't wait until they detail more of that.
  11. http://www.steelstrategy.com/2020/07/biggs-vs-truthiness-round-1.html
  12. While true, what's interesting is that the Legion and X-Wing steams do not mention rules despite the fact they follow kind of the same pattern of "new wave, new rules."
  13. It was an intentional parody of what you did for the round 2 pairings. Completely intentional. No screw up here. Nope. Move along. Move along.
  14. I'm free from grad school! Let me just take a quick breather... OWW OWW OWW! STOP HITTING ME BIGGS! Fine, I'll write something! http://www.steelstrategy.com/2020/07/grand-moff-ritr-biggs-vs-truthiness.html
  15. Hammerhead Torps with ACMs, DCAPs, and OEs have been my go to. They're cheap and painful.
  16. Mandatory in my opinion. I've never seen a successful Sato list that didn't include him.
  17. The first 24 hour tourney was quite popular. The format is back by popular demand.
  18. Listing on the distributor site is already gone.
  19. Comics are good enough of a source for me, which is what expands the First Order into a viable faction: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Maxima-A_class_heavy_cruiser (Mel's as a fantastic mock of up of this ship: https://www.shapeways.com/product/JUMKF6WLH/armada-maxima-a-heavy-cruiser?optionId=165067910&li=shops) https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/First_Order_Light_Cruiser I wouldn't expect the model for the Resurgent to be really that much bigger than an ISD. Add like 10% length and call it done. I don't really care about the art books that give them ridiculous length. On screen they look to be about the same size as the Sith Fleet ISDs (again, I don't really care that the art book made these randomly bigger for...reasons?). We have a sliding scale anyway. So that said, in my mind we have a large in the Resurgent, a medium in the Maxima (which Mel's Miniatures has done an excellent model for) and a small in the light cruiser. If we really wanna get froggy, you can add the Xyston Star Destroyer from the Final Order. That's enough to flesh out a pretty good faction on its own before getting into repeats. The Resistance has enough from just TLJ alone. The MC85 (again, sliding scale, screw the random numbers in an art book), the Ninka, and the new-style Nebs is enough to make them unique before repeats. I'm sure there are others from the comics as well.
