    That's because it is very expensive to market to children under 13, as your product must undergo a battery of additional testing.  Most companies don't care to go through this process, so they just slap that label on it and call it good.

    It also has a high decision density despite a relatively few number of upgrades. Flying it well is not trivial, but greatly rewarded. Most matchups are yours to win if you fly correctly.

    I think some of you need to leave the x-7 Defender alone. You can't propose to fix other ships all the while trying to unfix what is a really good fix in the first place.

    Yeah? Yeah.

    Good god would that be horrible to face.  4 dice at all 3 ranges?!?!  AND 2 more health points?  Dash would easily be the best ship in the game.

    Ideally, at a large event you want the tournament structure to do 2 things:
    Every game played by a player still in contention should matter All the X-2's make the Cut (need more rounds to let things settle out) Grant a first-round elimination round bye to the top-seeded swiss players (at a minimum all undefeated)  
    Unfortunately, this requires more overall rounds, and also more planning. It would be appropriate to do this for Nationals and Worlds, but FFG's goal with tournaments is to basically run them as short as possible, so only the x-1's or higher get in.
     
    As an example with this year's Worlds:
    Swiss increased by one round, so all the 7-2's got in. Elimination rounds increased by 1 The 8-1's and 9-0s get a first round elimination bye, essentially jumping directly into Top 16. An 8-0 should not have to play Swiss round 9. Give them a round 9 win and the above bye directly into Top 16. The remaining cut fills out the first round bye. Example: the top 6 players go directly to the Top 16 round. 20 more players (generally all 7-2) qualify for the cut and play in the first elimination round "Top 32".
     
    For Regionals this is harder because the events are already really long relative to the prestige level. But 5 rounds of Swiss and 5 rounds of elimination seems weird. 6 rounds of swiss and a top 16 cut is much more normal, certianly for X-wing. In OldPara's case he should have made the cut at 4-2 anyway.

    A modification that only works in-arc at R1, and only fits on a 2AGI ship with 5H and no shields with a max speed of 3?
     
    Yeah, totally the death of Palp Aces right there.  Tooooootally.

    My favorite game of the four I watched was the one with triple-K-wings versus Imperials.
     
    I liked both semis and the finals, but the games I watched with ... I wanna say Alex Y?  Those made my brain itch, because he was placing templates and moving so sloppily.  (I don't think the sloppy play was to his benefit -- I think he was moving too fast to make those judgments -- but it was teeth-gritting to watch.)
     
    But none of that takes away from how well the stream was done.  Trinity Squad Gaming is local to me, so I'm used to quality videos and commentary, but those are edited games.  It's quite impressive to make live-streamed games fun to watch.

    Tlfj200 reacted to Hydralisk101 in Running to preserve a win late game. How would you approch fixing this?   
    Running away at the end of a game is a perfectly acceptable strategy. I agree it can be frustrating when playing against it, but choosing chips which are fast and can keep up with fleeing ships (Manaroo) should go into all list building. Avoiding ships and outmatched engagements is a part of real dog-fighting and certainly fits the theme of the game.

    Just to be perfectly clear, Poe is still "allowed" to use his ability, but whether he does or not, the Focus must be spent at some point, not merely used. Net result is still all eyeballs are hits/evades and Poe is Focus-less, but he's still "allowed" to use his ability up until he's spent the Focus.

    Tlfj200 reacted to MajorJuggler in Milwaukee Regional today, updates as mood permits.   
    I do not believe that the discussion is about whether the Marshal has the authority to enforce incorrect calls, but rather whether the call itself was correct.
     
    For the day in question, the Marshal has absolute and complete authority. If the Voice of God comes down from heaven itself and disagrees with the Marshal, the Marshal wins. I have played in an event where the TO violated the Core Rulebook by not allowing several of my ships to execute their maneuvers. As a player you have to abide by that decision, but it doesn't make the decision correct.

    Things that TLTs really hate include:
    - Autothrusters
    - Sensor jammer
    Therefore if you're building specifically to shut them down, double IGs with SJ aren't a bad call. For extra fun you can include tractor beams, and chuck one onto a rock whenever the opportunity arises.

    I think that is the key point. 
     
    Spectators, a lot of times, don't know the rules better than your average player. Because, and this is the important part, they are mostly average players.
     
    I have had spectators try and correct me on rules in tournaments. For example one douchenozzle tried to tell my opponent they could put out three stress with a stress hog. WHILE I WAS RUNNING A STRESS HOG MYSELF. What it caused was a 10-12 minute break, 5 minutes of me telling him "dude, you're wrong. I play this list 4-5 times a week here are the rules". Then him going to get a judge, and then arguing with the judge that he was right. That cost me 10-12 minutes in a tournament with a list that needs time to win. Ended up getting a mod with a couple hull left on my opponents ship. If he had gone to a judge and said what was happening there would have been 0 interruption to our game. Instead his interruption possibly cost me 2 points. 
     
    Now, I know that people here are great with the rules. But you have to remember that the vast majority of players and spectators are not forum goers or even that proficient in X-Wing. Fantasy Flight Games does not make rules with us in mind.
     
    If you feel that strongly that you should be able to be correcting other's mistakes and catch cheaters, then be a judge.

    I really liked the 'how to play' video's they released with x-wing, made it super easy to consume the rules. RuneWars rules are a little heavier but not much heavier, could really help.
