  1. And Tractor Beam-equipped ships ruin her as well.
  2. WRT nerfing XWM... my opinion, anyhoo.
  3. Ionize her. She's a much more tame tigress.
  4. We live in a world where ordinance is a thing. (Until the whiners get the GC nerf I am sure they will start asking for, ordinance is going to happily be a thing.) You nuke her. She dies. Quit asking for nerfs, people!
  5. Much like Expose, which is never the answer, your statement above is never the answer.
  6. Wired, yes. Elusiveness...teach me, sensei. Tried it on an R2D2 Luke build a while back. Seemed promising, but...
  7. I liked the new trailer, but I do wish that Luke had activated the Falcon using the force instead of his hand. I think that would have been a nice touch. Still, cautiously optimistic about this movie.
  8. That sounds fantastic! Seems like it would be a lot of fun!
  9. What's Hangar Bay format? Does anyone know the locations for the various System Opens?

    K-Wings are back.

    Well, it wasn't a game changer if you didn't run action bomb K wings.
  11. Good question, actually. My thoughts: 1. Crew slot 2. Shield Mod to regen a shield 3. Different ship. Y-wings are very common at tables. Variety is the spice, and all. 4. Roark's ability is really good if you run lists that try to zap Expertise opponents. 5. Jan's ability is very good as well, I think. 6. Kyle's ability is always useful.

    There Go My K-Wings!

    This was something I noticed as well.
  13. This isn't directed at you... Cries to nerf turrets will now fill the air. I can almost guarantee it. If there's one thing I am beginning to see, it's that if you scream loud enough here, you get what you want. Secondly, turrets are the new boogeymen (or are about to be....Dash/Miranda will be "too tough" to beat, so we'll need to nerf it). If not, cries to nerf Autothrusters will be next. I predict Imp Aces will now make a comeback. Turret fanbois won't be able to hit them, again, and the nerf cycle will continue. Kind of makes me wonder why I buy stuff just to have it changed into something very different than what I paid for originally. Anyhoo, you heard it here first.
  14. Right. But the Devs are basically ignoring W1-2 stuff going forward, so what design space are they looking to free up? The nerf was very heavy handed. Thematic, yes. But heavy handed. And still no nerf to the scum green moves/TL droid?

    Yep. Makes me sad that it's come to this, tbh. I'll have to read the "Overcompensation" thread. Didn't see that one. Thanks for the recommendation. I don't think the K4 (or X7) should be (have been) nerfed either, fwiw, but as you said, the precedent has been set, and the nerf to X7 is at least fluffy enough that I can comprehend it.

    Right. But EVERY list has a bad matchup, no? To me, that's an axiom of the game. At least it should be. Perhaps we're to this point because folk haven't found the right ingredients to counter the current meta big guys. ****, we have so many releases in such a short period of time that we can't even get our feet wet with the current wave before new stuff is released. The Vassal folk get to try all the new stuff out as soon as it's encoded. Where's the chance to smell the roses and figure stuff out? And yes, I am pretty sure I'm not the guy that's going to figure that out. I'm a Filthy Casual™, after all. Regarding toning down...I agree with you there. Scum faction is difficult to deal with. Dengar, Scum Nym, and the Romulan-looking ship are a PITA to play against whether flown competently or not. However, the victory is SO MUCH SWEETER when I beat a list with one of those 3 in it. Same with flying against RAClo or Fairship. Bring 'em. I relish the challenge. Just dont' eff with my tools so I still have a chance.

    Right. I agree with you. Arc dodging is, IMHO, a fundamental of the game. As are Action upgrades. But when the bandwagon gets to the point that it's changing the game, I get sad. This game was fairly perfect before all of the nerfs. Had the phatom not been nerfed, and all other things being equal with the game since that wave, would the Phantom nerf still be needed? Wouldn't it be nice to have things the way they were? Perhaps there wouldn't be a need to reprint cards or reprice upgrades. Perhaps the Phantom would be competitive in this ordinace meta. And...the howls to make ordinance relevant were met. Now we've gone to the extreme that ordinance is OP and an "NPE". I cringe every time I see that acronym. Further: for purposes of fluff, I think the X7 change was okay. That, and some of the changes to a few of the EPTs (Daredevil, I'm looking at you) were warranted. But how do you not nerf the Scum "X7 Style" version (do a green move, acquire a TL) as well? THAT gets frustrating. I see where @Jeff Wilder is coming from. Taking the path of least resistance isn't good for the game.

    I agree with you on several of your points, especially your last one. I flew Warden ASlamming Connor Net/Ion Bomb lists to small success ever since the K Wing was released. If it hadn't been for the ASlam, the ship would be really tough to use, I think. Also...to play devil's advocate...Shouldn't an ace be that? An ace? A pilot that can read his opponent's mind? Hence the high PS? I thought that was one of the things that was good about the game, even though it was a PITA to play against sometimes. Yes...it's not fun to play against at times per se, but that's the appeal of a PS 2 Warden. Go ahead and arc-dodge me. I still have a chance to hit you because of ASlam and action munitions.

    Fair enough. It's still the case that too many want to nerf everything (read: anything that's difficult to overcome) until nothing is advantageous. Then everyone's equally boring. Go for it.

    I agree. Hence, my comment. Your post gives me hope that all the folk that post on this board aren't emotional wrecks.

    Really? An NPE? Maybe, depending on the age of your nephew, you should have considered your opposition. NPE? smh

    Wait...was this before or after everyone cried about Soontir being OP or an NPE? I just can't keep up with all the whining.
