    Darth Onyx reacted to thomedwards in App release date   
    I can't wait for this original, simple question to blow up into posts about how "phones won't exist so the app is no good, and the PDF file format may not be around in 20 years so how will we play this game?"

    I played several CCGs growing up.  After switching to LCGs, I can't imagine ever going back.
    I expect the experience would be just as, or more, frustrating with miniatures.

    I doubt he will be more powerful.  He switched to the dark side because he thought it would make him more powerful than otherwise.

    I'm surprised FFG haven't done some kind of basic storage solution themselves for at least the cards, dials and base cards. Ships and plastic bases are a little harder to manage since you'll probably want some foam for that.
    Strangely @drail14me , I've also been thinking about my v2 storage solution. Do you have anything in mind?

    No.  Everyone at my FLGS has stopped playing X-Wing completely until 2.0 comes.  Even the 2.0 moaners aren’t playing 1.0 (bags of hot air).  In the meantime Kill Team is taking up our X-Wing night!  First 40k I’ve played for 20 years. ?

    This is the most hilarious thing I’ve read this week.
    Guess you don’t want good, non-broken ordnance? Or for TIE swarms to be worth anything? Or for A-Wings, Y-wings, B-Wings, TIE interceptors, Lambda Shuttles, E-Wings, U-Wings, TIE Punishers, Mist Hunters, or TIE Phantoms to be useable? Or for choosing maneuvers to matter?
    It’s really the long-time veterans who remember what these ships were like to fly when they were good who have been most excited about the change.
    But it’s okay. Just fly your broken combos as long as you want. If you want to play Miran-Dash-Wing, feel free to keep playing it. No one’s stopping you. Some of us just want to use the iconic movie ships without getting laughed off the table, and are interested in variety of build archetypes in competitive play. That’s what 2.0 is supposed to help.

    These ppl are lazy, 4.5 months to budget $90 for a core set and 1 faction conversion kit.  If the 2 middle school kids in my local group can mow lawns during the summer to save money than adults can budget it out as well.
    But yeah no more official 1.0 content, probably wont even get a new faq that covers wave 14.

    Darth Onyx reacted to Commander Kaine in Tie Advanced 2.0 seems meh   
    Are you sure? 

    These are the ships naked, with 1.0 having access to ATC. 
    I know this is shocking, but adding a crit is better than changing a hit to a crit. Weird that, huh? 

    But I don't need no fancy program to calculate this for me. The 2.0 ATC can roll a blank, which is not great. 1.0 ATC cannot.

    Just running some calculations now and it looks to be worse overall.  Hopefully the pilots all get a cost break to make up for it.
    edit:  1.0 Predator Vader (not willing to spend lock) still edges out 2.0 FCS Vader by a small margin.  So far the only situation where the 2.0 Advanced does more damage is if nobody has any upgrades or tokens and 2.0 is willing to spend the lock while 1.0 is not.  It's fair to say that it is an overall nerf given the current pool of upgrades.
    edit: 2.0 Vader edges it out at range one by a tiny bit if he is willing to spend the lock.

    Yeah... depends on points. But really. These pilots just suck (they could have made these poor Juno Eclipse rip off at least IN5).

    Darth Onyx reacted to Herowannabe in Expansion Recommendations   
    Well first off, if you weren’t aware, X-Wing is about to transistion from first edition to 2nd edition come this September. There will be a new Core Set (note that if you want to play 2nd edition- and you probably do, it will be a significant improvement over first edition- then you will need a second edition Core Set to do so), a handful of ships are being re-released for 2.0 (and eventually all of them will be rereleased), and there will be conversion kits for players with existing 1.0 ships to convert them over to second edition. 
    That being said, don’t be put off by any of that, now is a great time to get into X-Wing, mainly because a lot of people are getting out of X-Wing and selling their ships off for cheap. You should be able to find ships (individually or as a collection) on sale on eBay/craigslist/Facebook/etc for 50% off of MSRP or less. Plus, stores will start clearing out their first edition stock for cheaper and cheaper as second edition gets closer.
     As a new player coming in, that gives you lots of options:
    Wait until September when 2nd edition comes out and buy everything new.  Hunt for deals in stores or on eBay and buy a bunch of ships for cheap, then pick up 1-3 of the conversion kits when second edition comes out (the cheapest option in the long run if you want a lot of ships and you want to play second edition) Hunt for deals in stores or on eBay and buy a bunch of ships for cheap, and then just stick with playing first edition.  Buying a used collection also gives you the option to try the game out, decide whether or not you like it, and if you don’t, turn around and sell it and get most of your money back.   
    Anyway, back to your question, what expansions to look for. First off I probably wouldn’t buy the 1.0 Core Set new unless you can find it on sale for cheap. You’d be better off waiting for the 2.0 Core Set or buying someone’s collection used. 
    After that, buy the ships you love. You will have more fun flying the ships you know and love from the movies/TV shows/book/comics/video games/etc than you will flying some random ship that you’ve never seen or heard of just because the interwebs told you it was good. Later down the road, if you decide you want to enter the competitive scene, then you can worry about picking up the latest Hotness. For now, just focus on the ships you like.
    The same can be said for which faction(s) to buy into. When second edition comes out there will be 5 factions: Rebels, Empire, Scum & Villainy, The Resistance, and the First Order. If it’s primarily you and your wife playing, then you’ll probably want at least two factions. Again, buying someone’s collection used let’s you try out a variety of things, and then if you want you can sell off the factions or ships that you’re not interested in.
    also, see this thread for more discussion about the best ways to get into the game right now (mine isn’t the only opinion), though it is more about breaking into the competitive scene rather than playing casually with your wife. 
    Anyway, regardless of what you choose to do, welcome to the game! It’s a lot of fun!
