  1. Totally fair and true. The answer to the question "which is better, Luke or Wedge?" is the same as the answer to most questions: "it depends..."
  2. It's worth remembering that wedge has better average damage output than luke against focused targets with 1 or more agility. And he's 10 points cheaper. And he can take swarm tactics to give you 2x i6 shots. and he pairs nicely with biggs. In isolation i'd prefer luke, but as part of a mixed squad with leia and biggs, wedge is nice and frees up points for the other ships.
  3. Right, but we aren't referring to the article text at all, we are referring to the card text. I believe the only case of incorrect card text we have seen was the init 5 Mace Windu (RIP). Is it possible there is a section in the RR that expands on the buzzdroid rules? of course. But it seems odd to have partial rules on a card. Bombs are a different story because they don't have a rules card, so they need an entry in the RR. We probably do need a RR section on remotes in general to understand how they work (do they count as ships for bombs exploding, and for cards like swarm tactics, etc).
  4. They don't need to clarify that it stays put because that's the standard thing all objects do. They don't move unless instructed to. In any case, as you said we will see.
  5. Your 2 examples are very specific cases of basically the same thing, and most people at the time knew perfectly well that these weren't going to work RAW. In those cases, obviously the TIE aggressor card wasn't going to have somewhere printed on it "cannot take the IG2000 title". So it made sense that it was going to have to be solved by a FAQ or errata. In this case, if the upgrade was designed to "stick", why wouldn't they have written that on the card? Why would they have written partial rules for how it attaches without mentioning the "sticking", then put that bit in the RR?
  6. They deploy with 3 straights and banks, not 2s. Agree with your basic point though
  7. Anyone else joining this group now just to see?
  8. Glad the league is back, looking forward to it!
  9. I read it in Morgan Freeman's voice before I even saw this line...
  10. So basically you'd rather them not have told us now what ships were going to be legal? I mean they could have waited until January to tell us what was going to be legal, but I don't think there is harm in getting the transparency out there now. I don't think there are any official Hyperspace format events between now and January.
  11. People are focusing far too much on hyperspace's balance today. It's mostly irrelevant. I'm sure there will be an event or 2 that use it before January, but the vast majority of tournaments that use it should be after the points rebalance. So stop talking about how Boba will dominate, because presumably boba (or at least han gunner) will have gone up in price.
  12. Keep in mind that the first events with this format won't happen until after the January points cost change... So presumably boba (or at least Han gunner) will have gotten a cost bump before then.
  13. A lot of people have made a lot of fair comments in both directions on the validity of drawing conclusions with the data that we have. There definitely are issues when data just gets taken at face value. BUT often it's the best thing we have, and it is still a good starting off point for interesting discussions. So don't stop sharing your work @Tlfj200! Please do...

    T-70 article.

    Double reposition without blue hard turns is much less scary to be fair.
  15. Yeah this is the key. Everyone should be at least a turn ahead when it comes to the leaving options open. Like don't do something that blocks your decloak options, or don't leave your soontir with only 1 maneuver option the next turn that the other guy can easily block... And do think about "hey I want this guy to flank, where do I need to go now to leave myself a safe flanking path but also doesn't over commit if the other guy turns on the flanker". But lots of people act like they know exactly what the board state will be in 2 turns, and that's just not true. I don't know exactly where my ships will be in 2 turns, so you definitely don't!
