    Darth Onyx reacted to Gilarius in Happy Friday - Epic   
    True story: I played in an epic tournament using 8 Tie Interceptors (and 2 Gozantis). Immediately bought 4 more Interceptors because they were so good (second hand, very cheap. Like a lot of my fleets.)
    The day that my extra ships arrived, the FAQ limiting ship numbers to 8 dropped. Wasn't happy .

    Hi all, 
    Hope everyone's digging the new minis. They were good enough to take me out of painting retirement following a 3 year break. My teenage brother also had a hand in these. First up is the stormtroopers. I've used a little blue in the shade to hopefully make the armour look shiny. We're painting in batch, but I did one as a test. We plan to make the core set as generic as possible, but theme any additional sets. C&C welcome

    TOTAL MONEY GRAB!!!!!!!!!

    Sell me a game, then change the rules, then sell me the changed rules....   Its BS!    I get that some mechanics and older ships are now irrelevant, but if FFG really is doing this for the purposes of fixing the game then they shouldn't be SELLING me the tools i need to keep playing something i already paid for.
     
    If this was a video game, it would be the equivalent of charging for a patch.

    so in order to make your current ships "legal"... it will cost you $150.... how anyone can say this is a good thing is beyond me.

    If they are going to revamp the game, why not do agility more like D&D?

    Here's the card they previewed today:

     
    I'm guessing this is the article mistake, though. The link to this card works differently than the links to the other cards, so this was probably an earlier version. I'd assume the version from the unboxing video is correct, since that's, you know, the one in the box.

    Hmm, Kath's text reads "non-limited" pilot, shouldn't that be "non-unique"? Limited was the term for crew that couldn't be duplicated on a single ship...

    Something doesn't have to dominate to be broken.  Black holes don't dominate the universe, but God help anything that crosses their event horizons.  Cloak/Decloak caused Fat Han, and indirectly nearly everything broken that's followed.
    It's even more indirect than most people realize, because it wasn't even Whisper that was the initial catalyst, but rather Echo.  In a game against a skilled Echo player, you simply had zero chance in a game without PS9+ ships ... usually turrets.  Echo was simply too maneuverable.
    So people started bringing PS 9.
    So Echo was phased out in favor of Whisper.
    So people started bringing PS 10+ ... and things went downhill from there.  We're still seeing ripples from Echo.
    So if pre-nerf Cloak/Decloak counts, under the OP's rules, I'll change my response to that.  Otherwise I'm still good saying Manaroo.

    Cloaking was never that broken. All the whining from Rebel players was broken. Cloak was not on the same level of Triple scouts, Miranda- TLT, Dengaroo, etc. Yes it was good and semi-popular, but it was not Fat Han, Miranda, Triple Scout easy to fly. I never saw one battle report of a SC, Regional, National or Worlds where Tie Phantom made up more than 1-2 of the top 10.

    Veteran instincts

    - a required upgrade on to many ships
    - is featured in almost every list thats not a generic swarm
    - is unbelievably powerful on ships that dont need more PS and next to useless on ones that do need more ps.

    People memories are so fickle, I can't beleive so many people are saying Harpoon while we had some way more broken stuff for far longer time.
     
    -Manaroo: passing all his tokens to any friendly ship in the mat?!? Was it seriously a thing?
    -Palpatine: change one die at turn after all modifications were done anywhere in the mat?!? How that passed any kind of test?
    -X/7: it doesn't matter what you did, you got an evade. On a 6 hp 3 green dice ship.
    -Biggs (pre-first nerf): it doesn't matter what you are planning to do, every other ship of my list now has 5-6 extra hp protected by 2 green dice and r4d6 who occasionally can even shoot back at you.
     
    Those were the big offenders, then there is also a plethora of other broken things (like cloak, c3po on Han, Miranda, Zuckuss and more), but they are a step behind the big 4

    so don’t dial in the same maneuvers. Dial in your strikers 1 speed faster than the Reaper and they will keep pace with each other (medium base: +1/2 a ship length for the airelons +1/2 length for the regular maneuver = 1 ship length) just like flying small and large ships together.
