  1. I’m incredibly nervous about Rebellion and Resistance becoming separate factions. How will they balance the equivalents of the Vietnam era USAF against the Desert Storm USAF? I’m certain they put a lot of time and effort into this and we’ll learn more as we get closer to release. But, man am I worried about how radically the game’s feel is going to change. And how long I’m going to have to wait till I can use my T-70s.
  2. It’s Friday. I’m thinking X-Wing again. And you’re asking if we’d buy more pilots for the T-65? DUH! Of course we would!
  3. Meh. Still won't be buying one. I mean seriously, they couldn't do better than stealing the nose off an Mi-24 to make a Star Wars ship? And it's not like adding a new mechanic makes it that much more interesting than EVERY OTHER 1 agility Rebel ship.
  4. I'm another who uses Aurora and likes it. As far as I'm concerned the only thing it lacks is synchronization across devices. But that's a niggle at best.
  5. Topics like this make me pine for Agents of Gaming's B5Wars. I really enjoyed that universe (more so than BSG) and would love to see FFG's take on it. And heaven knows there were more than enough different races and ships to make for a solid number of waves.
  6. Just enjoy the wonders of X-Wing while reveling in the happy place known as the weekend? EDIT: And get FFG to give us some ships to use as avatars. That would make everything better.
  7. He saw his opponent's move, picked up his dial and changed his maneuver. Malicious or not it is cheating and he should have been DQ'd with his opponent awarded a victory. And while he said - she said type situations might require the TO to try and gauge impact on the outcome, VT don't lie. Burn the witch.
  8. Bugger. I completely forgot about that point. After all how many design decisions where made because they had to factor in Biggs sucking up any shots aimed at that model. But it still shows Biggs having an oversized effect on the game. Doesn't it?
  9. We begged them to retire Biggs? Seriously. Losing him would probably be the best thing to happen to the Rebel design space since, well, ever. I know I'll get a lot of grief for this. But this truly isn't a "Nerf it it's OP!" whine. It's just that I have never been able to see what he adds to the game as easily as I can see how he detracts.
  10. I figure it makes it very dangerous to try and force an overshoot or to try and box him in. Don't know for certain but I'll find out next Wednesday.
  11. Doh! Somehow I read that as removing the Evade from the target not a friendly. Dumb. I'll have to dig around for a different EPT that gives him something flavorful. EDIT: Right, I'll give Wedge SNAP SHOT. It drops the squad cost to 99 and with his Pilot Ability is actually pretty dangerous even to higher agility targets.
  12. A New Hope (100) Luke Skywalker (32) - X-Wing Trick Shot (0), R2-D2 (4), Integrated Astromech (0) Wedge Antilles (35) - X-Wing Swarm Leader (3), R5-D8 (3), Integrated Astromech (0) "Dutch" Vander (33) - Y-Wing Autoblaster Turret (2), Proton Torpedoes (4), Extra Munitions (2), Targeting Astromech (2), Guidance Chips (0) In honor of May the fourth I really just just wanted to see if I could make a fun Episode IV list. I'm even thinking of taking it to my FLGS's monthly tournament next week. Any tweaks/changes you'd like to suggest?
  13. http://armada.fabpsb.net/permalink.php?sq=e14c7o1w1g3d1i5t9f16e36o25d5t1e37d5t1e0a3a5a11e42e12e12e12 I've not yet put this on the table but it just seems like fun to me. Anything I should consider modifying right off the bat?
  14. Honestly the Auzituck is so gawd-awful looking that it's going to be the first Rebel ship I just skip. Sure the 180° arc is bound to be amusing. But another Agility 1 ship with what's bound to be a mediocre dial combined with that level of ugly? Pass.
