    Lancezh got a reaction from DewbackScout in "Fear and Dead Men" Command Card, nod to the comics   
    I just noticed how the color scheme, and pretty much everything on this card is a nod to the iconic comic panel, pretty sure i'm not the first to notice but i find that awesome!

    Interesting, sounds like someone with OCD though if he didn't do it for tactical reasons. If that was the case, he literally couldn't any different. Not saying that it's fun for you but i know the type ?

    Lancezh got a reaction from Piratical Moustache in Does the Empire need a CR90 equivalent?   
    What imperials need is the Imperial Tax to be gone and... the ISD is very compounding this problem. If you don't fly an ISD as an imperial your tournament competitive lists become very narrow. The meta is skewed in a sense that it feels balanced (which it is) but only because the ISD is such a good ship for such a "low" point cost with Strategic Adviser basically invalidating VSD's / Raiders (with exceptions) etc.
    (Slight addendum, if you go First player lists you almost always also have to take the Demolisher, which narrows your list even more down)
    VSD's exemplify this perfectly... it's not that the VSD's are terrible, it's just the current state of the game that you need activations, and they can't fit a Strategic Advisor, they don't have the hull to survive an Avenger Alphastrike but ISD's have more activations, more hull, more firepower, more maneuverability. More everything for a little extra cost. So instead of asking for new ships we need to talk about general opportunity cost balancing. All the "alternatives" cost to much.
    A ship is not bad per se. A ship is bad if it costs to much for what it brings to the table. Look at the Raider, i love that ship and it's design. It's a great thing but it costs to much (probably being the worst point / performance balance of all ships). If it cost 1 point everybody would take it, right ? How about 10 ? 20 ? 30 ? 40 points ? Sure, so where is the magical balance ? We don't need new ships, we need to reevaluate the point cost of these obsolete ships due to opportunity cost.
    Oh and i wouldn't shed a tear if the Strategical Advisor gets burned with the Banhammer. It punishes anything Midsize way way to hard, on both sides. And before you go into "raiders are awewome yadda yadda". I know, i love them, i play them in my competitive list, but that doesn't mean they are balanced, we pay a BIG prize for this love affair at that pointcost.

    I'm completely fine with this game if it's aimed at casuals, i'm a deckbuilder by nature. Thats why i play Netrunner. But i have no opposition to a game that is designed to work out of a sealed tournament / league play like this. In the contrary, i can finally play games with people who don't bother building decks.
    If you expect an ultra hardcore game in here you will be maybe disappointed.

    It sounds sound but it's not what happens in reality at least in our meta. We have almost NO overlap from X-Wing / Armada players. The systems speak to completely different playertypes and i guarantee you that maybe 10% of the Armada players might switch to X-Wing if at all if Armada was cancelled. Yes, i'm sure there's a ton of people who can anecdotally "proof" me wrong because they know some people who are different but this is a question for each meta / country that's probably answered different.
    I have 2 completely different customerbases for both games as already said and they tend to go for genre (Strategy Games / Armada or Tactical / X-Wing). I don't have a single X-wing player from the top of my head (although they do exist i'm sure) that picked up legion of course, but i have alot of Armada Players that dipped their feet into Legion at the moment. Same btw for Destiny.
    I highly doubt that this is the case. Bare any FFG sources or insider information that's just a nice theory since FFG is not the only thing that exists in the Gaming Hobby, they definitely don't stall one product line in the hopes the other doesn't get cannibalised. There are much much closer systems to X-Wing than for instance Armada and they are not coming from FFG. What you describe is a perfectly valid strategy, but for a Retailer, not a Publisher.

    So this is how i ruled yesterday:
    1. Yes they can
    2. Only destroyed if they END their movement outside of the table as per page 21 of the RR
    3. They can climb but they have to retain their facing (otherwise if they have to pivot to face the building and then pivot back to whatever they shoot you lose to many actions)
