    jmswood got a reaction from Magnus Grendel in Han HOTR   
    Not true at all. Han says, "When you are placed during setup, you can be placed anywhere in the play area beyond range 3 of enemy ships." The range restriction only applies to Han's deployment. It does not restrict later deployments by enemy ships.
    If HOTR Han is the first ship in the play area, then he can deploy anywhere, but it's a terrible idea. Any competent opponent will deploy to focus fire Han in the first round of shooting. You wasted half your list on a gimmick.

    Every game I've ever seen with HotR Han would have been better for the Han player if they used original Han.

    jmswood reacted to Green Knight in Nebulon: What One Upgrade Slot Would You Add to Make it Competitive?   
    One drawback is the lack of good and diverse Support Teams: FCT was more or less made for Yavaris, and ET can sometimes be useful on Salvation, but other than that? Now I've made myself think about Nav Team, and I almost start crying #sadpuppy
    Another thing that could help us see more "generic" Nebs is a non-unique title. That's actually something that could happen.
    So basically:
    1. Some useful, low-cost Support Teams.
    2. Non-unique titles for Neb-Bs

    jmswood reacted to ScumDan in System Open Hanover Livestream   
    Hello X-Wing community   This weekend (7th & 8th of April) we will be streaming the System Open Series Hanover. Live coverage will start approximately 10-15 minutes before the first round starts. Commentary will be in English and we will try to get the players in front of the camera for some interviews after each game. Friday night after setup we will try to interview someone from Organized Play or Vince Kingston (Marshall) to recap the latest System Open tournaments, what to expect for Hanover and maybe get a glimpse of the future of X-Wing OP. All videos will be avaible on YouTube as well shortly after (I´ll post the links here then). Feel free to post some questions for the Friday night interview and I´ll try to get them answered.   Twitch Link:  click www.twitch.tv/xwingshg   Hope you`ll tune in ☺

    jmswood got a reaction from RyonOlson in Wishlist for (reasonable) upgrade card effects   
    Deflector Alignment (defensive retro or support team generic version of Aspiration.) - “At the start of the first round you may move shields from one hull zone to another hull zone, up to a maximum value of 6. You cannot recover shields while any hull zone is greater than its printed shield value.”
    Communications Relay (Fleet Support) “You cannot spend [Squadron] tokens to activate squadrons. When a friendly ship at close-medium range resolves a [squadron] command, that ship may activate 1 additional squadron at close range of this ship.”
    Flak Burst (Ordnance) “You may spend a [Concentrate Fire] dial. Instead of performing any attacks this round, each squadron at distance 1-2 suffers 1 damage.”
    More where that came from, but I have a day job.

    A spinoff game would be short-lived and have a limited following. The best way for FFG to ensure sales of prequel products is to keep them in X-wing. 
    The common objections to Republic and CIS factions/subfactions lack imagination. Where you see barriers, I see unexplored design space. Republic and CIS can be their own factions, and the existing factions can get the content they deserve.
    Introducing: Dual Faction Pilot Cards
    Pilot cards with a primary faction that defines most of its visual design, and an added secondary faction icon below the primary one. These pilots can be used by either of their factions. 
    Anakin and Obi can fly together in the Republic or against each other in the Empire and Rebellion.

    I'll agree that new Republic and Separatist factions would work well.  Fighters like the N-1 could be initially introduced as a Rebel ship, but then later get Republic pilots like they did with the Most Wanted expansion (as I assume would be the case with the ARC-170, and the Sheathipede)

    I really like the Jedi Starfighters, but I think they should be introduced to the game with new factions or subfactions and other prequel content. The N-1 can be introduced to the game without any further faction development.

    The clarification you’re looking for is on page 9 of the FAQ, available for download on the FFG X-wing page. 
    Edit: As a friendly tip, I don’t recomment any Kylo Ren build for casual games, especially with someone who can make you sleep on the couch. “I’ll Show You the Dark Side” is one of those abusive abilities that ruin friendships outside of competitive play.
