    RampancyTW got a reaction from Kumagoro in X Wing 2.0, the most expensive version change for a miniature game in the history of gaming?   
    A few things here:
    FFG has literally zero obligation to support tournament play.  That they do is a nice bonus, but they have no obligation to.
    FFG has literally no duty to do anything other than what they've done up to this point, which is create miniatures and cards for you to play with.  Their obligation to you begins and ends with this.  They deliver what is advertised.
    FFG is not forcing you to buy into 2.0.  If you have no issues with X-Wing 1.0 between you and your friends, keep playing it!  If there is no reason for you to upgrade, just don't upgrade!  Is it really that hard?  2.0 apparently doesn't affect you, and has no impact on the products you already have, so don't buy it!  Ta-daaaa!
    FFG had no obligation to allow any cross-over between 1.0 and 2.0.  The fact that I can fly all of my previous Imperial and Rebel purchases (with a few I'll need to borrow or buy on the secondary market) for the cost of a wave of X-Wing is a pretttty good deal.  They didn't have to do that.  Other miniatures games don't always do that.  It's pretty cool that they did that.

    RampancyTW reacted to Maui. in Rulings for worlds   
    It is possible to interpret the card as written to imply a hard cap of 4 additional dice regardless of the source of those dice. It's not the most intuitive interpretation, but it is there.

    RampancyTW got a reaction from Maui. in Rulings for worlds   
    Would it not be considered dice added by a secondary weapon (2i)?  And if not, it still doesn't really make sense how the CM clause somehow limits other sources of added dice.  Like, if you CM for 4, can you Jan Ors for 5?  The Jan Ors die being added is completely independent of maneuver speed, which CM's maximum refers to. 
    The ruling is what it is, but that doesn't mean it particularly makes sense.

    RampancyTW got a reaction from nitrobenz in Rulings for worlds   
    It is, however, a pretty major break from the timing chart, which separates CM/Procket dice counts (substep 2i) from abilities that alter dice count beyond the attack itself (substep 2ii).  They need to either change the chart or scrap it entirely, because they keep contradicting their own attack timing rules with rulings/FAQ entries.

    Of all the suggestions I've heard, TLT being changed to only accept hit results (like oldschool clusters) is the change I think makes the most sense.  Makes it 1/6-1/4 less efficient and removes the Maul/Ezra synergy for TLT only.  No point cost or range tweak required and still quite effective.
    Doubt it happens, but it would be a nice quality of life change.

    No, it doesn't, because Jostero doesn't trigger from dealing facedown cards at all, he triggers from taking damage, which the Harpooned condition doesn't cause to its holder.
    Jostero is also not triggered by Proton Bombs, Black Market Slicer Tools, etc etc.
