    Curb your Packaging FFG

    It's about shelf presence, it's easier for someone to justify buying a larger box for the price. If it was small your brain equates that to being cheaper. May not matter to hard core x-wing players, but say a friend or family member buying a present or someone casually getting into the game, the box size matters.

    Impervium Plating Vs Hull upgrade

    Played 2x games both would have been better with hull upgrade.... I do think it's pretty luck dependant. Only pulled pilot Crits.

    I understood none of that.

    Impervium Plating Vs Hull upgrade

    6pts for impervium, and 5pts for a hull upgrade. (belbullab-22 only) What are peoples thoughts on this.... With the soulless one upgrade you have 5hp of hull to work with but my gut feeling on this is if I really wanted to add more sustainability to the ship it's probably better to just spend one point less and put on a hull upgrade as having "ship" crits land seems like a risky play when +1 hull is just another hp straight up. But the ship crits are very nasty being able to cancel a direct hit could be massive or really any of the ship cards. Curious what other peoples thoughts are on this upgrade and its value.

    Veteran Turret Gunner Cost

    Is the double tap on the y-wing really that bad? You need to fly really well to get a good double tap with the dorsal turret and adding a 2die primary after an ion cannon shot is not exactly crazy firepower. I think people are trying to solve a problem that does not exist.

    Veteran Turret Gunner Cost

    I do not think they are an auto-include, it really depends on what you are trying to do. I have run y-wings without them to great effect both turreted and not. I also do not think the price needs to change. The upgrade seems fine to me.

    Wave 3 Card Availability

    I checked I have a Energy Shell for each of my vultures so both the combo pack and solo pack came with enough energy shells for the ships in the packs.

    8 ship max, right?

    "SQUAD POINTS If players want full control over their pilots and upgrades, they can build squads using squAD points. When playing on a 3’x3’ play area, play at a squad-point limit of 200." - page 15 of the rulebook So no I would not allow a 300pt list. and nowhere in that section does it say 2-8 ships... this is why I am concerned. but it does say: "The X-Wing squad-builder explains the rules of squad-point building and enforces these rules so that players do not accidentally build illegal squads" - page 15 of the rulebook So if they show up with 10ships because as per the rules they were not only not told they couldn't and were explicitly told the squad builder will enforce the rules so the list must be legal... then I have a big problem running the tournament. Being a **** and trying to find a loophole in my concerns about people accidentally bringing illegal lists is not helping anyone.

    hes not wrong.

    8 ship max, right?

    While this is true its a really problem for running a tournament because no where in the rules or rule reference does it state this or in the squad builder app. I am going to wager most players do not read the tournament regulations to figure out squad building rules. If someone shows up with a 10 ship list that the squad builder app and rules book and rules reference seem to allow then i would feel like a real **** telling them they cant play because there list is illegal due to a rule in a document that they really should not have had to read in order to squad build.

    Wave 3 Card Availability

    I am fairly sure i did, will check once i get home but i think i had 1 for each. I know discord missiles (buzz droids) only came with the vulture expansion so if you want 3 (they are capped at 3 per squad) you would need 3x vulture expansions. that kind of sucked but since i want to swarm them i have that many anyways so not a big deal for me but i can see it sucking for others.

    Wave 3 Card Availability

    there ships are droids.... why would the need additional astromechs on the ship that is design to be a giant astromech? how is that funny?

    WEBSITE IS LIVE, POINTS ARE UP

    Comparing Jediknight (3) at 39pts to Green Squadron pilot (3) at 32pts to a Green Squadron Expert (3) at 34pts The 5 or 7 points seem like a pretty good deal for a force charge and far better ship ability. (you do loose a bit on the dial) but never ever underestimate how strong a force token is. Also comparing out of faction is probably not the best as there are going to be things cheaper or more expensive in different factions do to other variables beyond raw stats.

    Number of ships in a squad

    In the rules, and rules reference there is no mention of a number of ships in a squad cap there is however in the tournament regulations "Squad Building Each player must build one squad to use in a tournament. A squad cannot exceed 200 points, though it may contain fewer than 200 points. A legal squad list contains between 2 and 8 ships from a single faction."- page 3 of the tournament regulations. However the offical squad builder lets you put 10 in. Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder Any idea on if the tournament regulation sheet just did not have that part changed when they moved to 2.0 or do you think its just missing in every other location. As a person that runs tournaments this is going to be an absolute ***** to deal with as very few players have read and internalized the tournament regulations document and everything else they have access to allows them to run 10 ships. Any guesses? If this all stays without something changing i think i would have to allow it if someone showed up with an official list builder printout with 10 vultures. "actually this more obscure document says your list is illegal and you cant play even though the rules and the squad builder allow it" is just something i cant see me saying to someone.

    Points for Separatists

    No where in the rule book or the rules reference limits it. and the squad builder lets you: Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Trade Federation Drone - 20 Trade Federation Drone - (20) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder Its going to be **** to enforce at tournaments if its only listed in the tournament regulations book and no where in the rules or squad builder.... **** it all.
