    Schu81 reacted to Magnus Grendel in Playing Poe   
    As a rule, I'd suggest trying to avoid sending him up the centre. A T-70 X-wing isn't exactly 'fragile' but nor is it massively hard to kill, and Poe's ability doesn't make him any tougher than a normal T-70* in the way, for example, that Joph Seastriker or Jessika Pava's do, and he is about as expensive as X-wings get. 
    He can do well in an aggressive squad but generally he's one of the units you generally want in a good shape for the end-game, so trying to take the opening engagement from the flank, or at long range with torpedoes (where he's less likely to get pummelled) is a good idea. 
     
    * Okay, technically "I used a target lock and still have a focus to defend with", but that's still just a T-70 with a focus token and you've stressed yourself in the process.

    Honestly, I keep reading quite a lot to keep up with all the rules and special abilities, but I am a bit confused about all the new stuff coming up. It's getting harder and harder to keep up with all the rules, special rules and game effects.
    Yeah, maybe it's just me getting older...
    Anyway, I feel like I am the rules-guy in my local gaming group. Usually people turn to me, when they don't really remember what will happen after flying through a debris cloud instead of flying over an asteroid. Things won't be easier to remember with ion clouds an all the other new stuff coming up.
    Of course I am not talking about ion clouds in particular.... it wouldn't be much of a problem, if that's the only change to the game. But it feels like there will be a whole lot of completely new game effects coming with the new factions.

    "Mooch" and "Lefty" look great! I especially like the work done on cockpits. 
    Here is mine T-65, callsign "Krayt". Aggressive, fearless and prone to early explosions.

    Second edition is waaay harder to keep track of than First edition.  way more symbols, tokens, etc.   the whole thing is already bloated and we have barely got 4 ships for 4 of the 7 factions.  in a wave or 2 you'll need a semester long course to keep it all straight

    If you enjoy Rebels and Resistance, I'd say your set; don't buy into this new stuff, you'll be setting pretty at the top of the power curve.
    However, if anyone enjoys Empire, you might look at this Separatist stuff closely I'm thinking. I'm no fan of the prequels (hate 70% of each movie easy), and I have no interest in the Separatist of the movies, none, "roger, roger," vomit in my mouth kinda reaction. But it seems FFGs possible plan is to move the things Imp players use to enjoy into this faction to sell stuff? Obviously the Empire has lost their unique strengths of being the only barrel rolling, great dial fighters; as other factions have both and have dials better actually; but FFG kept the Imps fragility intact. What?!? Anyway, it appears this new faction might have the uniqueness and abilities that was originally the strong suit and power of the Empire in early 1.0 with a bonus or two? I don't know. Hey, just like @ScummyRebel said, look at that dial and crew options on that Infiltrator; if it's priced well, it will be a wickedly fun ship!
    I have decided I am not upgrading my entire Imp lot to 2.0 (I just have a hand full of ships upgraded currently) and possibly just look at the Separatist? ...as weird as that is for my Star Wars brain? Conflicted I am. I get you @Schu81, I get you; but you're in the strong position, stay there.

    It's not necessarily a bad thing. That depends, if you like getting new stuff or not
    I personally enjoy getting new stuff for my ships though.
    It's always great, when you can make a good ship even better with a cool new upgrade card. That's what I have always loved doing in XWing during the 1.0 waves.

    Oh yeah, I really like the game too. I don’t know how I compare between xwing and legion because they’re both so good - I give my Filthy Casuals gaming group the edge so xwing, but I really like the hobbying aspects of Legion.
    I don’t know how good spare parts would be on a T65 like Wedge, but I’d like the chance to try it sometime for the funsies. I just have no resistance ships and that makes it harder to justify. 
    Where I start to get a little grouchy is that all the new toys for wave 3 AND 4 are outside my chosen factions - I don’t need any more reprints of the 1.0 ships that are coming. That’s just me being salty though, I’m sure something will come along.
