    Radaeon reacted to EbonHawk in Why do people want a super star destroyer?   
    You say you would fly it but of course you bl**dy would, as would all Imps.
    Every example (moving on from scale) has these ships toooo overpowered (even though they were)
    If this ship double arcs it can throw 12 red, 6 black, 6 blue (being conservative thats roughly 20 damage or so every double arc...) Ridiculous
    3 of each colour for Sqauds as well (plus Kallus?!?!) so it shoots front arc does 10 min damage then basically kills the opponents squadron ball?!?!
    Now lets look at it's Commands: 7 squadrons really? So it can activate nose punch you with probably the ENTIRE squadron ball then throw 10-15 damage min from just the front arc..... Ridiculous
    Now 22 hull (25 with Motti), and 11 shields to get around with a redirect, so taking it has that token you have to do min 11 damage just to get through the shields without them bracing... Ridiculous  
    Upgrade wise 2 of each? Please imperials give me a break. So this ship has Kallus, RBD, EWS/ECM, Vet gunners, gunnery teams, ACMs, Ord pods (with double upgrades)
    take this one ship beat every other list in the game
    I won't even get started on giving it abilities as well. 
    The ship while being cool asf, just would not suit this game at all! and would force everyone to run counter SSD fleets just incase 1 person brings 1 to a store champ, ruining the vary game itself and nullifying the point of list building. Not to be condescending in the above but it's ridiculous, and every example i've seen people give has been.. just add the death star already...
    SSD shouldn't even be a debate, lovely in theory, but ironically that would kill the game. Scale means nothing when you couldn't add the ship to the game without making it much weaker than it's in canon, or just too overpowered for its own good.

    Radaeon got a reaction from Megatronrex in Article Predictions. Mostly General Discussion. But there's definately some Predictions scattered throughout.   
    My concern around the SSD is more that it has potential to break the game like no other expansion has. If it's to powerful it takes out the legitimacy of many ships. If it's not powerful enough it gets bagged beyond belief.
    Excessive salt over something that people have been almost demanding since the beginning is probably worse than people claiming the game is dead.
    For the record I am a believer that the game is still alive.

    I'd prefer a maximum number of aces per fleet. This would also lead to the much welcome circumstance that you would not see the same 8 Sloane aces all the time (Dengar, Mithel, Howl, Valen, Cieanna, Saber, Maarek, Jendon). At the moment I cannot play imperial squad heavy, because every other combination than those 8 + Sloane seems to me to be so inferior. But those 8 I cannot stand one game more. A maximum of something like 4 aces per fleet would hopefully set free a lot more of fleet diversity.

    By virtue of being on the other side of the **** planet I was able to collate as much of the information that came out of Worlds Day 1A into one handy source: 
     
    The Overnight Report. Hope y'all dig it.

    If someone could provide info of the lists and stats coming out of Day 1B I would be much obliged as I'll make another one tomorrow for Day 1B as well.

    Radaeon reacted to ryanabt in Pure Disappointment...   
    Just to add my 2 cents to everyone elses' (that is a buck .32 that FFG won't be getting with this announcement!)

    I am mystified how something like this gets past everyone without someone saying, "Hey, don't you think we might be misrepresenting the hyperspace report by labeling it this way? Perhaps we should let people know that this isn't a general report for all of our SW product lines?"

    Thus, there are only three explanations. 1) FFG has been infiltrated by GW employees who, rather than trying to undermine it, actually really want FFG to succeed, but are going about their business just as they did at GW OR 2) Someone higher up decided, after the initial information about the report was out and someone brought up the bad optics, that putting in other information would take away from X-Wing 2.0's glory OR 3) Someone high up at FFG decided that getting people into the report who were interested in other lines wouldn't hurt and might bring in more purchases for X-wing (Cost benefit analysis).

    In any case, this is an EXTREMELY bad look for FFG not just because they made a hash of publicity, but because they did so on an EPIC scale and seemingly chose to do so knowingly. This suggests willingness to misrepresent themselves rather than accidental.

    I, for one, have stopped buying X-wing for the past 4-5 months and swapped to building my Armada collection - a much more stable game.
    You can also look at the bottom end of tournaments, where players bring a very cheap list (often under $150) and get burned out after the first few rounds due to massive losses. They might quit the game, or boycott XWM for 6 months as a protest. It happens, just not at the top tables where winning is the only priority.

    Radaeon reacted to Vontoothskie in Xwing is alive and well despite what the clickbaiters say   
    the people asking if its dying arent trying to kill the game, they are concerned about its decline and the mechanical state of the game. tournaments represent 1 in 1,000 players, and the reality is that many FLGS are dropping x-wing nights and a lot of people have moved on.
    many of us have played other games like this and watched those games collapse and go out of production, so its a valid concern. dont forget that before x-wing was "star wars starship battles". that game is out of print

    Radaeon reacted to namdoolb in big changes too close to worlds?   
    I think most players are very much aware of things in the game that are potentially deserving of a nerf (those two things mostly being relay & flotillas)
    And to play devil's advocate here.... players who are good enough to get a slot at worlds should also be plenty good enough to have at least a preliminary backup plan in case any of the really obvious nerfs happen.
     
    I.e. it wouldn't be any great surprise to anyone if relay or flotillas were affected negatively by the faq, and not having a plan for what you are going to do if they are affected is just wilfull ignorance.

    The key to take away from this I feel is that flotillas are on the big screen.
    Additionaly they have more on screen time then a lot of other ships and fighters.
    To me that means they are part of the overall theme.

    That's fine, this topic is about discussing essentially house rules or 'what if'. I'm not employed by FFG so its not as if what we discuss here will have any bearing on the official rules.

    Is it somewhat Surprising that a ragtag group of rebels are indeed visually ragtag whereas the monolithic uniform military bloc is both monolithic and uniform?
    I just don't think parity is as important as, y'know, game balance in design...  Sure, you could just throw something in there to achieve parity, but if it doesn't actually perform some measure of bonus to the game, what's the point?
     
    And I mean, I'm the opposite but still in the same boat...  Do you know how many Interdictors I had to buy to get Flight Commanders for my Rebel Ships?
