    I know the old EU had plenty of flaws, but overall I like it way more then the sequels. 
    The need to copy the OT movies so much makes the victory in Rotj feel a bit gone to waste.
    I also don't like the fact that they had to make it all extremes in weapons and powers. I disliked things like the Suncrusher, but Star Killer base and a fleet of Destroyer Death Stars are even worse. Same with the extreme new Hyperspace usage every movie. First hypering onto a planets atmosphere,  then a Hyperspace weapon and now those hyper blink jumps going through and perfectly between all sorts of things. 
    My favourite EU are Thrawns trilogy and the X-wing series and they didn't need super weapons to function.

    I just came back from watching the movie and I’m honestly surprised on just how awful the sequel trilogy is. TFA was uninspired, TLJ was just cringey, and TRoS  is just super duper lame.  
     
    You can definitely tell just how bad JJ wanted to ignore TLJ with the whiplash inducing exposition dump that TRoS suffers from throughout beginning of the movie. It seriously felt like Ray William Johnson levels of jump cuts and rushing as the whole movie felt like it took copious amounts of speed beforehand and the high never stopped.  

    I don’t know if the rumors about Disney not properly planning the trilogy beforehand is true, but I’ll be surprised if Disney did more then have a post it note that reads “do 3 Star Wars movies.” I’m just at a lost for words for how lame the new trilogy is really feels like Disney dropped the ball on the entire project.

    I want to see:
    Blue Squadron Pilot - 45 points
    Blade Squadron Ace - 47 points
    Braylen Stramm - 57 points
    Ten Numb - 56 points
    Gina Moonsong - 60 points
    Stabilized S-Foils - 0 points

    Unnecessary IMO. They're pretty much viable already at 69, 67 is probably the sweet spot even not considering break points. I think the more important change is Onyx down to 72ish and the named ones (other than Rexler) around 78. They're good, but most of the value comes from the chassis, not the initiative or abilities, as cool as they may be.

    Here's another thing which is good about the B-Wing S-Foils: you don't get to do the Cannon attack first.  If you want to set someone up with a jamming beam or tractor beam, you'll need a second equipped cannon.  The way that 1e TIE/D did the cannon attack *first* meant that the tractors and jams weakened the target for the primary weapon attack.  Tractor/Autoblaster to get a "normal" attack after a Tractor means you're spending still more points, and you might not get your normal number of attack dice.
    Basically:
    Tractor -> Attack = Toxic BS which is why everyone hates the Nantex.
    Attack -> Tractor = Still often a bully (see the Shadowcaster), but not quite as much of a **** move.
    *edit*

    It’s a config that makes the B-Wing act like a B-Wing. Without it, it really doesn’t behave the way a B-Wing should. What, are they going to put a cost on the gunboat titles and X-Wing foils too?
    I feel like that’s a foregone conclusion. The B-Wing never should have been in the X-Wing’s price range anyway. It was always way more expensive but way more powerful, even though it wasn’t as maneuverable.
    This was the problem with B-Wings in 1.0: Cannons weren’t generally worth it on their own, so B-Wings were taken naked as efficiency jousters. Not only is a B-Wing without special weapons absurd, it’s stealing the X-Wing AND the Y-Wing’s place as the basic workhorses of the rebel faction. Unfortunately, that stuck around for the first bit of 2.0 as well. It makes sense to release the conversion without if it really wasn’t ready yet, but it’s so odd to me that they went ahead and released the new ship pack before it had its config. If they had to wait for the card packs, they should have held up the 2.0 B-Wing as well.
    Maybe the reprints will include it. It’s weird either way.
    Still, I don’t want to see these things costed as an upgrade. B-Wings have them, as part of their essential construction. It would be like leaving the ailerons off of your striker.

    I mainly hope for small point changes and not nerfing stuff so they are no longer viable options.
