    Nothing official yet.
    But until there is, nothing stopping you from playing 1.0. Your old cardboard will not spontaneously combust on 2,0 launch day.

    When we make a list in the new app, can we print it out so we don't have to use pens or pencils and stuff?
    Why don't we have flying cars yet?

    They should make the Punisher ignore target lock requirements of any attached ordinance upgrade.

    I liked to use ST-321 to grab Target Locks at any distance and then pass them to my Missile Boats.
    Glad to see we now have some real anti-pursuit lasers!

    Well, keep in mind some of the people here have been playing for 5 years. That's a lot of emotional investment, and as such there can be a corollary amount of grief. Also, these people have sunk a great deal of money into the game over that time, and some have very large collections. It could require a significant investment to be able to field them. It also doesn't look like there are any "conversion boosters", so someone with 6-7 TIEs would need 2 kits to play them. 
    That being said, there are ways to deal with it. They could find friends whose numbers compliment theirs, and split the cost of additional kits, or get their overflows through online secondary providers (ebay, amazon, etc.). I personally have 5 defenders, and yes I have played games with them all (Epic). I also have more bombers than the kit provides for. So, I'll need to figure out what I'm doing to accommodate my supply beyond what the kit covers. However, I'm just excited that the game seems to be coming back to what it was when I first picked it up...... dis gunn' be fun.

    Yeah, and that thematically makes sense because they're a highly trained military outfit. In fact, their entire schtick is working in unison.

    I found it really interesting that Jek Porkins and Garven were kept in tact ability wise essentially the same. Initially I thought, “but... those abilities stink.” And then I realized that those type of abilities are the ones that were “bad” because they were actually fair. Rexlars ability is one that falls in a similar space I think, and I’d be surprised to see his ability thrown out.

    Defenders are also interesting.
    I'd like to see what they have done with the TIE Aggressor. Does it have some special turret mechanic? a gunner slot? A ship ability? I feel that ship fell very boring, and imperial ships are supposed to have special moves.

    Armada has cards that can temporarily change activation order, such as Bail Organa.  They haven't been a problem.

    Spending a focus during movement won't really work, as you generally won't have one at the start of the activation phase. We know Focus tokens are still removed during the cleanup step, so the only ones who would still have one would be those carrying Advanced Optics.

    We already know that VI, and all other permanent Initiative boosts, are going away. However, the devs have not ruled out the prospect of temporary initiative changes.
    Could this be the future for VI? Instead of a permanent boost, what if it just changes to a single-round (or even single phase) boost that has you spend a charge to gain a temporary +1 or +2 boost to Initiative, or just completely bump you to Initiative 6 for that turn. Luke still isn't as good a pilot as his father, but for one turn he's able to draw on his experience to match up with him.
    It seems like it would be both more balanced and more thematic, rewarding players for choosing the right moment to actually use the ability instead of just being on all the time.

    Darth Onyx reacted to Reiver in Is there any video of X-Wing tie fighters actually doing well?   
    Well, they can adjust point costs.
    The one caveat being if they get it too wrong, they'll be stuck either staring at raising the points of literally everything else... or finally accepting 9-TIE squads into the game. Assuming the 200pt squads are a simple doubling, 24pts is the base... they can squeeze down to 23, but the moment they need 22 they've got to accept that's a 9th ship on the board.

    And the latter is quite a significant difference.

    If they suck? FFG can adjust point costs or pilot abilities or initiatives as needed. This is the beauty of having a 2.0 app/printable PDF.
