  1. Jousting typically favors one of the players. It may or may not be you in a given game.
  2. Don't depend on rolling hits and evades. Being able to modify your dice is key.
  3. I can't say you are completely wrong, just very black and white. I feel like this sort of thinking is very dismissive and overly simplistic. It's not a polarizing view where on one side I don't care about epic and on the other I am so desperate for FFG to give me what I want that I quit the game. I do play my own games of epic and have fun but it would be nice if they supported epic a bit more like providing prize support and including side tournaments at more FFG run tournaments. None of this was ever whining about not being able to enjoy myself. It was just an idea I had to try to rally support for a cool alternate play format to spice things up. As far as "do what you want and stop waiting for a game manufacturer" goes, writing this post is "what I want" and I don't see how seeing if there are others who feel the same is just "waiting" for anyone. Competitive X wing where there are prizes (trinkets) involved is not the only thing I get out of the game but it is a fun aspect of it. ...sorry, forgot to add original quote

  5. Great responses everyone. They have me thinking. It really is a tough spot where FFG must see that there is less interest but on the flip side, there is likely less interest because it gets so little love in articles, tournaments, prize support, ect. I really think prize support would draw people in. I like to play with friends but offer me a chance at a coin or a cool card (not to mention acrylic) and I am at my local game store paying money and hanging out with the community in my area. I would love to hear numbers from tournaments tht have been offered in people's LGS. Also, what list won the epic tournament at worlds? I heard podcasts talking a bit about individual games but didn't catch what the best lists were.
  6. Yeah I know the game takes longer so the classic 6 rounds of swiss with a cut would be pretty overwhelming but you're right Khyros the scoring could be tweaked to make it work. Prize support could be a real draw for players to come in for a tournament. Imagine an acrylic range 5 ruler or huge ship maneuver template! Every nerd in earshot would swarm! #Acrylic=Glitterstim
  7. Hey everyone. I love the 100 vs 100 format and I have a great time playing competitively but...I would love to mix it up more by having more epic tournaments. Is there a way we could group together to petition FFG?
  8. Does anyone know if they typically do any Epic/Team epic at System open events? The info available says that there will be 3 hanger bay events at the Syracuse (Naboo) event. Does that mean that each of those 3 will be one of those 100 point tournaments where you bring two lists or might some of those events be epic/team epic? Thanks!
  9. No Green maneuvers and the captain is stressed! Can't perform the "dock action"!
  10. Not sure if it has already been suggested but there is a facebook swap and sell group that seems to get things sold pretty quickly. I would start there.
  11. So this may already be a thing but...I recently began thinking about fantasy football for the upcoming year and my draft strategy. I don't care much about fantasy football this year because I have become addicted to this game during this off season. So, my thought was to combine the two. What if you sat down with say 12 guys and you had to draft pilots and upgrade cards? So on your turn you select a pilot or an upgrade and then you are the only person who gets that card for the season. I then thought you should have to build an imperial, rebel and scum squad for the season. Each player would number their squads 1, 2 or 3 and at the beginning of each league match you flip up a random number and that's the squad you play for that game. It would be cool to size up your opponent knowing which upgrades and pilots he has.You would see cool new builds as it would likely be tough to draft Soontir and PTL. Plus the draft would be crazy fun! What do people think? Is this already a thing? Any interest in a league like this?
  12. I would guess not. 1. I believe FFG had said they were not planning on going back to the prequels. 2. There is so much content moving forward that going that far back might not be necessary and 3. Lots of fans hate the prequels and it would be pretty controversial and I would guess not great for the game/community. Or I could be wrong
  13. Maybe people arguing about different builds or the current state of the meta should start a different thread? I jumped on trying to get some updates (like it says in the title) and got mostly arguing that everyone just skims past.
