    What is hyperspace format?

    Translation: "Some people have a different viewpoint than I do, so I will assume some ulterior motive rather than believe that anyone could genuinely like the idea." I've seen several veterans who like the idea of Hyperspace, so doesn't that mean that the haters aren't really "advocating for players" either?

    The obscure ships that wont ever see a re-release

    Pfft. Everyone knows that the Blugzuhrag has two cannons over the cockpit. Except the ones on Alderaan, which only had one cannon, but that's hardly the livery of the Alderaan Home Guard! I think it'll really come down to how long the game runs. Some releases will get higher priority than others, but I think everything will eventually get re-released eventually, assuming the game doesn't die or get rebooted before then. Also, I think the Star Wing will be fairly high up on the Empire's release list, considering how much of a following it has. I'd be surprised if it knocked out any canon ships, but definitely before most of the rest of the EU stuff.

    Indeed. Not only did it not address every argument, it seemed to actively ignore the fact that there even were other arguments. What I objected to was that you took the idea that Hyperspace is more accessible to newer players, and drew the conclusion that Hyperspace is only for newer players, who are intended to someday grow beyond Hyperspace, because it's only "introductory". This actively ignores the fact that accessibility is only one reason for Hyperspace, and not even necessarily the primary one.

    ...you realize that I was explaining ONE aspect of it, and not giving a comprehensive list of every single argument in its favor, right?

    It isn’t Guardians of the Republic.

    You believe Extended will be hopelessly unbalanced, then?

    It's not that Hyperspace will put a brand new player on the same level as a vet. Rather, a smaller card pool makes the game more accessible to newbies. Would a new player rather try to remember hundreds of different ships and upgrades while preparing, or dozens? Personally speaking, when someone asks me my opinion about Pilot X with Upgrade Y, I still usually have to ask what abilities they have, and I've been playing for a couple years now.
  7. Doesn't the T-70 already do this?

    Rexler's reaction says he agrees.

    That means you confused him.

    That makes sense, but I think they could get around it somewhat by only releasing packs for a ship when they reprint it.

    That's just how he reacts to everything. Personally, I think he's become so confused that he's permanently confused the Confused reaction with Like. So whenever you see Rexler Brath react with Confused, you should interpret it as, "I, Rexler Brath, really love this post and wholeheartedly agree with it!"

    Out of curiosity, how does Hyperspace force players to buy the new factions? Every faction has playable ships in Hyperspace, and apart from the Resistance A-Wing and a couple of Scum options, all of them are available in the conversion kits.

    Also, I would expect the Rebel Falcon to be pretty high up on the list for Rebel releases.

    Not exclusively. Most ships are 2.0, but they seem to be throwing a few Extended ships into the mix to add a little variety for veterans.

    Two points: First of all, they'll still need the models. So, it may be cheaper if they can find--and are willing to purchase-- a large number of ships, but it's actually a bit more expensive if they're just buying a handful, assuming they can find the 1.0 ships they want in the first place. Which leads to... Secondly, how long will this remain true? I've seen no indication that the conversion kits will be reprinted, and even if they are, the more popular models are already getting harder to find. The next time they're reprinted will likely be in 2.0 version, which won't require a conversion kit anyway. Your advice is good for the present, but remarkably short-sighted as far as the future of the game goes.
