  1. I didn't even know about this. I just subscribed to FirstEarth with my Amazon Prime account. Thanks for the heads up.
  2. I recently picked up A-Wings. Two of them have pegs that were glued into the bottom of the ship crooked so they sit crooked on a base. Good thing expansions are $5 more per expansion now.
  3. 1) It's getting old, having to explain this over and over again but a game that constantly expands inevitably has power creep issues. It's unavoidable. I consider rotation mutually beneficial to players and FFG because it keeps the format manageable and it's a sustainable business model so they keep producing the game. I know I'm in the minority with this position but I couldn't care less if Vader or Soontir or anyone else was in the game as long as the game was balanced and fun. Again, I know I'm in the minority but I couldn't give two ***** about lore. 2) That's only partially true. They made it clear that they wanted to fix mechanics and add formats. Maybe to you, that's all 2.0 is. That's hardly true for everybody. The premier event format is Extended. Extended is still the primary format. I do sympathize with your complaint that all Hyperspace trials are Hyperspace format. They should have left the event names what they were and the format for regionals could rotate. I will wholeheartedly agree that FFGs transition to 2.0 has been poorly communicated and executed but I don't think Hyperspace format is one of their bad decisions. I think it's essential to the longevity of any expanding game.
  4. None of my friends quit and we have a handful of new players. I agree that FFG botched the launch of 2.0 but I also think Hyperspace is pretty much everything that X-Wing needs for long-term success.
  5. You don't need tokens; you need to practice more. You haven't ingrained your actions in your memory through repetition. If you practice more, you won't forget.
  6. Movie stills don't have anything on this sweet *** alternate art card from the Stele Open. I would play my heart out for as many pilots as I could get my hands on.
  7. FFG announced that Hyperspace will be limited and rotating. I think that's fantastic and important for the health of the game. I know I'm very critical of FFG but they've made some great decisions here. I've got to give credit where credit is due. FFG Event Stream
  8. **** yes! I think a rotating, limited format is essential to the longevity of the game. I think FFG is right on in that regard.
  9. The first thing I think about is which of their ship is best in the end. Then I try to kill it without giving up more points than that ship and/or giving up my best ship in the endgame. I consider a good trade to be any trade that accomplishes those two things.
  10. FFG should want Hyperspace to be their premier format because the relevance of new ships is higher. There are fewer ships in the format so the power level is lower. Highlighting new ships should be an important factor for them. In extended, the likelihood that they get lost in the crowd is much higher. For the players, Hyperspace is more level power-wise. For the most prestigious event of the game, you'd think skill should be the most determining factor. I don't understand a lot of their decision making and it seems like they just shoot from the hip.
  11. All you should really need are two factions as long as they're strategically dissimilar. If one is bad, the other should be okay. There aren't that many different strategies. Most differences in this game are tactical.
  12. I doubt they'll let Rebel/Resistance be bad again. It's probably a safe bet. The game's called X-Wing after all. I'll probably just stick to Rebel, Resistance, Imperial, and First Order but I probably won't buy everything of any of them.
  13. I wholeheartedly agree with the OP. For instance, why do they put bases in every ******* expansion? Just put 8 small bases, 3 large bases, and 4 medium bases in the core set. It's ******* stupid that I have a giant box of bases from all the expansions I've bought. Do the same with pegs. Do the same with focus, shield, evade, stress, charge, and force tokens. I mildly get throw a fit in my head every time I see the excessive waste from each expansion.
