    Well, everyone definitely won't get at least one. That's the nature of limited edition, and part of the point of this lottery system. As for organisation, I don't know, given they're doing this during the greatest global pandemic crisis of our time, I think they're doing kinda well...

    This. I stopped playing miniature based tabletop games because I got sick of GW crap. I got back into it because X-wing was affordable by comparison.

    Have you ever considered the wild idea that maybe - just maybe - people aren't basing their choice of hobby on cost alone? Like - and I know this is wild in concept so stay with me here - maybe people who don't consider X-wing to be bad value for money also just, y'know, don't really like GW games...
    Yes, I know, you're probably screaming "HERETIC" right now, because that's what GWeebs love to do, but get this; Not everyone likes ground combat games. Not everyone likes far future or fantasy games. Not everyone likes persistent stat games. Not everyone likes sports games. Some people may like some, all, or none of these. Some people may just hate painting things, and some folks just really don't like the theme or sculpts for a lot of GW stuff. Guess what, some of the players of this game may just be - MildShock - Star Wars fans specifically. I know! Wild!
    Maybe stop trying to argue the economics of what people like versus what you like. Let people bloody enjoy what they want to.

    Honestly, if it wasn't for FFG and X-Wing I wouldn't know what a fun, competitive tabletop miniatures game actually is.
    And I was a GW fan for years.

    I have played a *lot* of TIE Bombers, all the way back from 1E. They're among my favourite ships in the game to play. However, in a competitive scene, they get eaten alive. In a non-competitive scene, they still struggle a bit compared to counterparts in the same niche. On paper, their stats are really good for the price. On the table, their 2AGI and no shields means crits land with alarming frequency, and the target lock struggle can be real against ace lists. One or two in a list carrying a bomb of your choice and/or ordnance like Clusters or Plasmas can give your list an edge, and the Scimitars are cheap enough to consider for that in many lists. Bombers en masse, as much as it pains me to admit, are really outclassed by other options.
    In normal, one-off Extended format games, though, they're a lot of fun. You can use Jendon to augment the target lock issue and spam out a bunch of tooled up Bombers to really shake up those aces. Big fan of throwing Vader on Jendon and running the squad wide to give folks confusion on target priority, and cover the rather wide butts on those Bombers in the process. Jonus also begins to make more sense once there's four on the board, too, albeit in a much tighter formation.

    That list was able to park on rocks and dump mines out the front. TIE Bombers definitely can't do those things. Hyenas got cheaper too (and by more), so the aforementioned list is even better now, and the TIE Bomber hardly changed at all. Not saying bombers aren't good (they are) but that's certainly not a good case for them.

    Destiny didn't seem to have a particularly wide uptake. It's a fun little game, and their draft system was clever, but competing in the same space as Magic, Pokemon, and YGO was always going to be a tough sell. The card pack cost being high because of the dice didn't help that at all.

    Yup, that's a derp. I'm so used to stapling Dengar to Nom already I'm just auto typing. What I meant was 000, not Dengar. If you're running Nom as a blocker, it's a way to either get a free mod, or get the stress on an opponent to trigger BT1. I reckon it would be a smidgen more useful than the title on him.
