    I recall this but can’t quickly confirm it. did they say it during the twitch conversion show?

    Not with that attitude.

    11 minutes of your time, and far more articulate than I would be summarizing it.

    I mean, yes. The perception of luck, versus the actuality of it, can certainly be different. I'm arguing from the game's core design features to mitigate and diminish variance given to the player. Within that, you get a much smaller, predictable amount of variance, allowing the game to not be deterministic (always a clear, correct set of answers, even if you'd need a super computer to solve it), while not having so much variance and aspects out of any players control as to devolve into monopoly. It's the same reason people perceive many card games, like MTG, to be "luck," and yet, they consistently have the same top players. There's an aspect of randomness, and yet, the core of the game is around predictable variance/probabilities and players play around their risk tolerances, and aim to minimize the variance with decision making and mastering the aspects of the core gameplay.

    I definitely stand on the other side of that argument. Though "medium" and "high" degree of luck are not really objective measures we can debate on easily.

    I guess I'm not sure. I just disagree X-wing would be categorized as ameritrash.

    I'm not sure that's a fair assessment. If every ship simply did an expected/average damage, the game would be far more deterministic, edging increasingly closer to chess. Chess is great, but not every game needs to be chess/deterministic. A small, dedicated, and predictable amount of variance means decisions fall on a probabilistic spectrum, and that can be interesting unto itself.

    I didn't mean to seem like I'm attacking you. Our disagreement on what mods to the game are well defined. However, this new card is only random for some lists - it's NOT random for others. It just seemed odd to pick on 2.0 for a silly 1.0 card, when the card looks as silly as a LOT of 1.0 cards.

    I Agree™.

    I'm a little confused about the pessimism of 2.0, given your excitement and interest in 1.0, as 1.0 is where all the clearly broken stuff is. I mean, if you were pessimistic about 1.0, I'd get it, but the dichotomy is confusing to me. For what it's worth, the stuff we've seen in 2.0, in aggregate, seems pretty balanced. The few things people in the thread have flagged, at least some have confirmed are quite expensive. Hence my cautious optimism and excitement for 2.0.

    I find it interesting that the early consensus is that this card is a good addition to 1.0, and simply "too late" for the meta. Missiles are not hurting this meta...

    The beauty of norra is she saves herself. Why shouldn't someone just 1-round that y-wing?
