Parable got a reaction from Joe Boss Red Seven in WE WANT THE NEBULAN B EXPANSION FFG... NOW MOVE!!!
* Nebulon B (sorry, it was bugging me)
I have seen 3D printed and fan-made models that look awesome. I think I have two from FFG... but they are made for Armada.

With dice creep, this would all but push out 3-dice secondaries (Tractor Beam, Mangler, Tracers, etc.).
Three red dice just isn't enough any more unless you've got jank, Gunner, or at least two other three-dice attacks each turn.

Look at the hotac and the large and epic ship mission for idea's.
Parable reacted to Quadjumper King in Woul adding objektives to the game make It even beter?
The missions included in the large boxes and the starter sets are a good way to go for beginning, from there you can try an epic ship campaign (come with the ships) or design your own now you have an understanding of what balance is.
Alternatively listen to the the more recent episodes of the Shuttle Tyderium Podcast they work through some epic campaigns missions and design their own for the upcoming X-Wing narrative event.
Missions are a fun way to play X-Wing, definitely give them a shot
Parable reacted to Herowannabe in Don't ever complain about "on the boat" again
So a game I backed on Kickstarter just posted an update where they gave us a link to a live feed that shows us exactly where the boat is in the ocean. Don't they realize I have work that needs to be done!?!? AUUGH!!! Not knowing is so much better.

Punishers should, IMO, be shooty AF. Not particularly durable, just able to pound the heck out of things.
I'm still taken with the idea of letting them take a missile or torp shot after a primary shot. FCS targetting lasers > torp. Who needs Deadeye?

I played against fantastic list on Sunday (comprising four Mindlinked Mangler Scyks). It drove me insane; it was a thing of beauty, especially against Fair and Balanced.
So much for that good, non-broken, list and all the ones like it.
Looks, again, maybe Mindlink is broken. All I'm saying is to get evidence of that absent definitely-broken JM5Ks.
Parable reacted to VanderLegion in Faq ''leak''
For that biggs change, it's basically just serissu's ability (slightly better since it gives the potential for an extra evade vs just rerolling an existing non-evade. But unless you roll all evades - and eyeballs if you have a focus - it's the same net effect). I'd probably even be happy to make biggs just give ships at range 1 a free evade result.

I want to see an FAQ that changes Flechette Torpedoes from:
"After you perform this attack, the defender receives 1 stress token if its hull value is "4" or lower."
"After you perform this attack, the defender receives 1 stress token."
That would do a whole lot to help against ships with 5 million greens and self stress mechanics. Not to mention giving ships with only 1 Torpedo slot a reason to equip a Torpedo.
And I think the Flechette Cannon should be changed as well. From:
"If this attack hits, the defender suffers 1 damage and, if the defender is not stressed, it also receives 1 stress token. Then cancel all dice results."
"If this attack hits, the defender suffers 1 damage and, if the defender has fewer than 2 stress tokens, it also receives 1 stress token. Then cancel all dice results."
These weapons have both been unused since they landed, and a big part of that is the limitations. The Flechette Torpedo is basically useless against lists with only Large ships. And the Flechette Cannon is useless against ships that start most combat rounds with a stress token- which are the ships I most want to deal a stress token _to_. Loosening those restrictions a bit would be enormously helpful.
Parable reacted to Jeff Wilder in Faq ''leak''
I hate that they "fixed" JM5K and Mindlink at the same time. There is no evidence that Mindlink is broken outside of JM5K lists. It's good. It's strong. It might be broken. But it also might not be.
I also hate the AdvSLAM "fix" ... talk about a massive bait-and-switch. The correct fix was "The AdvSLAM must be the exact same maneuver."
And I never thought I'd say this, but ... that might actually be too much to the JM5K! (Maybe.) It's using concepts that are good, but ending up bad because they simply refuse to errata the cost.
Here's the real question: are they going to restore Deadeye and Manaroo? (Of course not ... )
