  1. You clearly cheated here though. You moved the ship back almost two ship lengths and didn't return it to its original position before reversing the maneuver. you should have had Tim replace the ship per the rules.
  2. It was missed because of the fiasco with BCP at LVO I reckon. But its pretty blatant.
  3. The wide world of wargaming crew everyone https://giphy.com/gifs/fVUrY8ZyBDuwHG84ya Also, this would be libel Vincent. I am sure Jeff can walk you through that.
  4. I would say you're right but the confluence of struts, the vultures themselves, discord missiles, their ship ability, and the Tac droids are a problem.
  5. 4 Ship Rebel also can punch through Boba.
  6. Yeeeeaaaa Spikey bits is not where I would go for an opinion piece on... well anything really
  7. Right, but the reason for canceling isn’t that it would be a US only event. It’s because there is a pandemic and people’s lives will be affected. Not because some people can’t come so it’s not fair...
  8. Yea totally too expensive. Not even worth trying. Nothing to see here move along.
  9. Hold up. I want to go back to this. Is this a real post or a joke? Because if it’s real, it’s arguably the dumbest thing I’ve read on this forum. And this forum says A LOT of dumb stuff.
  10. Yea that ain’t why she doesn’t die....
  11. Don't forget negating the defensive bonus...
  12. There also was not a global pandemic in the middle of the production of the replacements for these....
  13. Thank god they are dumping Alliance. They have been horrible on the OP side of things.
  14. I think he is tied for the largest points drop in the last points update.
  15. I see someone has not looked at rebel's new points....
  16. If I had my way both would be playable in some way at high level Hyperspace Store Champs Primes Grands (could go either way) Worlds Extended System Opens Coruscant Continentals My worry, is that you simply can't find a lot of the competitive ships at this point. If someone starts out right now and wants to do the whole track they arguably can't and be competitive in the OT factions. A very real scenario right now could be New player plays in store champ new player wants to play in prime but cannot buy a YT-2400, Phantom, Gunboat, Attack Shuttle, K-wing, Hwk, Lambda etc. All of which are staples in extended right now. By the same token, if they wanted to go to worlds they can't find those either. It is pretty exclusionary in my view.

    End of Fantasy was also when I came over. I worked for GW for years as well. Even with my discount, X-Wing is cheaper than being actually competitive in the tournament scene. With the added bonus of not needing the community to put out additional rules for the game to be balanced and maintain all OP basically. I still paint ships so that part of the hobby is not lost to me. The community for X-wing is better for sure as well. Basically, not really sure what the upside of GW in general at this point is. I think GW realized that too which is why they brought back the specialist and side games and are trying to have community outreach again.

    So you originally said you got a full 40k army. Then you said it was one of each warcry, necromunda, and bloodbowl. Now it’s just the starter for 40k and only half of it. And we are also now not just converting we are starting x-wing and through all this, it’s still cheaper to do the same thing with X-wing. You can split a core set and buy two xwings for $60 total and have a list that’s actually competitive and playable (your core set space marine army is not competitive btw). You don’t NEED a mat anymore then you NEED terrain for a 6x4 table. Or just convert one faction for $50 and wait to do the rest later if we “make good financial decisions”. Regardless, anyway you compare it x-wing is cheaper. Stop man, you’re embarrassing yourself.

    Actually, what you said was Buying any full (assuming tournament standard 1500+ point army) 40k army is massively more expensive than converting an ENTIRE collection of X-wing to 2.0. Converting 2 factions to 2.0 from 1.0 is $100 at full retail. Literally, any of the below STARTER BOXES WHICH ARE NOT A FULLY LEGAL TOURNAMENT ARMY are about the same price. Let alone codex, rule book, dice, paint, and templates etc. which easily push you far past that. That said, amazon and most retailers are selling them for less than $50. So lets be generous and say that you NEEDED 2 of each conversion kit for your two factions (you didn't but lets assume). At full retail that is $200. That is still cheaper than getting the starter box for space marines and the current 40k game starter box. By about $100, and once again that doesn't include paint or other supplies. The Necromunda box by itself is $290. Which is more expensive than 5 full retail conversion kits..... Now if you are saying you got all of those things used, then that is a bit different. But also not comparable to buying something full retail the day of release. By that logic, my friend converted to 2.0 completely free because I gave him an entire conversion kit for free since I overbought. Checkmate, converting to 2.0 is cheaper than whatever you did in this one case that is completely relevant. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=rebel+conversion+kit+x+wing&crid=30AGNTFQSDG5P&sprefix=rebel+conversion+%2Caps%2C137&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_17 https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Warhammer-40-000?N=2562756967+2917003483&Nr=AND(sku.siteId%3AUS_gw%2Cproduct.locale%3Aen_US_gw)&Nrs=collection()%2Frecord[product.startDate+<%3D+1583754120000+and+product.endDate+>%3D+1583754120000] https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Boxed-Games?N=1339748208+457750697&Nr=AND(sku.siteId%3AUS_gw%2Cproduct.locale%3Aen_US_gw)&Nrs=collection()%2Frecord[product.startDate+<%3D+1583754900000+and+product.endDate+>%3D+1583754900000] https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Boxed-Games?N=1339748208+4132548956&Nr=AND(sku.siteId%3AUS_gw%2Cproduct.locale%3Aen_US_gw)&Nrs=collection()%2Frecord[product.startDate+<%3D+1583755140000+and+product.endDate+>%3D+1583755140000] https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Boxed-Games?N=1339748208+2338266792&Nr=AND(sku.siteId%3AUS_gw%2Cproduct.locale%3Aen_US_gw)&Nrs=collection()%2Frecord[product.startDate+<%3D+1583754960000+and+product.endDate+>%3D+1583754960000] But please, tell me again about your math.

    Guys and gals, this is the same guy that said that GW games are cheaper than converting to 2.0 X-wing. Can we just ignore the troll and move on? The paint jobs and sculpts are objectively better by essentially any metric. (edit) Also OP. The game is in a better place and as has been said it truly is possible to be single or dual faction so your savings there are also good. Overall, your hobby budget might take a bit of a hit but it really is worth it for what you are getting. To recap Ships are better quality Paint jobs are better game is better no need to buy ships from all factions for cards etc game is more balanced so pretty much all ships are playable so you WILL use what you buy
  22. Krayt Cup is the most prestigious tournament now or in the future, except other Krayt Cups.
  23. you need to keep reading the whole article. Mayfair, which had previously sold rights to Catan to Asmodée in 2016, announced they were closing down in February 2018 and selling their remaining assets to Asmodée.[9] Eurazeo began searching for a potential buyer for Asmodée in early 2018, and announced by July 2018 that it was selling the company to another French private equity firm, PAI Partners at a price of about €1.2 billion.[17] https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asmodee https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PAI_Partners https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privately_held_company https://www.paipartners.com/investment/asmodee/
