  1. Clearly it was Mary.
  2. THERE ARE RUMORS ABOUT THAT WE HAVE COOPERATED WITH THE MYNOCK SQUADRON PODCAST DO NOT BELIEVE THESE LIES, ANY AUDIO WHICH SOUNDS LIKE OUR VOICES WAS CLEARLY DOCTORED OR OBTAINED UNDER DURESS (WHICH THEY COULD NEVER PUT US IN SO IT'S DOCTORED) FAKE NEWS
  3. WHY DOES THE SUBMIT BUTTON NOT WORK HALF THE TIME FFG PLZ
  4. Well I'm glad it worked out OK...ish? Yes, always the teams fault. Or your dice!
  5. You didn't forget to absolutely tear me apart for the most minor mistake I've ever made in a game - jesus christ that range game is going to haunt my dreams for a long time But, they wouldn't let you use your regional bye, since it was a continental championship. Budget Nathan tried with no luck
  6. SORRY I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER ALL THESE WINS KRAYTS COMBINED DAY WON RECORD 23-1 BECAUSE FFG CONSPIRED AGAINST US ONLY A KRAYT CAN BEAT A KRAYT
  7. Can we go for maximum ego and say both? With our powers combined, we go Super Saiyan and channel a Krayt Spirit Bomb. I'm also partial to this as an acceptable explanation: Nah, seriously, at least for me it's just practice. I don't even want to go back and think about how much playtime we put into specific match-ups that we were expecting. Fun fact: the FSR plan for corran is to not draw Nathan in the cut. Whoops! With the meta in flux as much is it is (was?) during Gencon, just having the sheer volumes of games that we did against what we correctly figured the meta would be was a massive advantage. Also, did you get your car sorted out? I never got a phone call so I figured that was... good?
  8. I'M FREE
  9. Did you enjoy the horrible laggy mess VASSAL turns into with that many bombs? It crashed multiple times when I started copy/pasting layouts for the first set, haha
  10. This succinctly summarizes the major design problems/power creep that hit the game, nicely done. It's funny, in an effort to make the game not rock-paper-scissors by letting autothrusters only work against turrets, they accidentally made untouchable arc dodgers which were a huge problem themselves. I wonder what the world where autothrusters only works out of arc looks like.
  11. 1 point short for bomblet gen unguided rockets death fire. SAD!
  12. 100% agreed that it's not solved - and honestly I don't think just straight wave 11 will be out by itself long enough for it to be ever solved before we get hit by a new release. I assume everyone will copy the top lists from gencon without much testing from there until guns for hire/force Friday hits. Unfortunate that we can't ever lock the beta to see what would eventually come out I think it honestly just takes time for the meta to settle long enough to be able to tech in small changes to deal with meta lists without that tech just being a waste. Who knows if we'll have that much time in wave 11. Oh yeah, those are definitely strong combined arms (ODJ maybe less so, but I get what you mean). Unfortunate that aside from parattanni they've plummeted from the face of the Earth though.
  13. Well they kind of do mean you do have high polarity matchups, by design. It's hard to do "combined arms" lists right now. I guess what I'm trying to say is every major meta is doing one thing extremely well and running with it - there aren't a lot of generalist lists out there. I'm on mobile so it's hard to grab examples, but the if you're willing to run with the "tier one" lists being fair ship rebel, nymgar, and cruise aces for example each has doubled down into just doing one thing very well and mostly ignoring the rest. Maybe we'll see it tone down some after gencon/Nova, but I'm not really sure it will. The most well rounded list of those 3 is nymgar, which is running nym who is the poster child of rock/paper/scissors. I'm not sure you can currently build an effective list that will blunt some matchups without causing you to just punt to a lot of other things. I'm not even convinced nym is the distortion causing this. Anyways, sorry I'm getting way off topic at this point. I think you're right - you can blunt matchups, like nym. I'm just not convinced that it's a good meta strategy. I think the winning gencon list will just be a tier one list that straight up dodged it's bad matchups, as silly as that sounds.
  14. It's literally impossible to take pot shots on an advanced sensor nym without opening yourself up to bombs. There's no "outplaying" involved. Nym can dial a 3 bank and either bomb you or not get shot, depending on the angle. Of course both are possible. Yeah @Biophysical you're right, QD does totally destroy nym, I think the main problem is that it's a very hard Rock paper scissors. Kylo also destroys nym, does it in a manner some would consider... Unnatural
  15. Don't let anyone else's enjoyment or lack thereof influence you - if you're happy with the game, play it and don't let others drag you down! Something else draws each of us to the game, and just because the game changes and some don't like it as much anymore doesn't mean you do, or that the game might not be better off for those changes. And, as community dissatisfaction builds, we'll eventually get community versions like what @MajorJuggler and co is working on, which is awesome!
