    jmswood got a reaction from Yodas Mum in What if..(x-wing style)   
    Has anyone heard of Destiny? I think the idea in the OP is basically a game called Destiny, except there would be a bunch of pointless plastic models somewhere on the table between the players.
    X-wing needs less cards, not more.

    jmswood got a reaction from player2072913 in Please DON’T nerf harpoons   
    Harpoon anecdote:
    Last night a friend ‘pooned me for the first time. He did 6 damage with the missile and condition, and felt dirty after. I won the game anyway. Doesn’t change the fact Harpoons are unbridled power creep.
    I don’t care if they nerf Harpoons or not. I’m just tossing in my opinion of the card.
    Side note about some of the recent posts in this thread: Statisitics are dull and the hypercompetitve nature of metawingers is a greater threat to player community and fun than any card or combination of cards.

    I’m a filthy casual, but I think epic is terrible. I play Armada for my capital ship fix.

    Design man hours and production capacity are finite. Does anyone really think another Scum epic would have any chance of being anything other than lowest possible priority for FFG? Between merchandising directives from LFL and higher player demand for other products, a statement like, “no future Scum epic planned,” shouldn’t surprise anyone.
    FFG needs to seriously reconsider before bundling another standard play fix with an epic ship. Yes, it boosts initial sales of the epic product, but mostly feeding a secondary market of reselling standard play components. The “pack it with a small ship everyone wants” approach is wasteful, and most of the money made on those releases is going into third-party pockets. That’s money FFG would have made if they sold those standard play products separately, meanwhile the overwhelming majority of epic models produced are not being used by the consumer.
    Many of those consumers (including me) publicly express frustration over the existing approach to epic ships. We’re the same players buying the  bundled standard play components on the secondary market, or not buying them at all. There’s enough of us that FFG should do some focused market research before they plan any future epic releases.

    It would be even better on an N-1 with an evade action.

    Yup.
    One of the big benefits of Crack Shot is that it has effects even if you don't use it - forcing people to overspend on their evades to avoid you crack shotting them.

    ”After you execute a green maneuver, you may perform a boost or barrel roll action on your action bar as a free action.
    After a bomb detonates at range 1, you may discard this card to ignore all bomb damage until the end of the round.”

    The “Export to Clipboard” button (top left) works in Aurora. Push then paste the list as text in the forum instead of posting a screenshot.
    As for the unspent 24 points, I would try a TAP with Missile.

    jmswood reacted to theBitterFig in Can AP-5 be used multiple times a turn?   
    I'd argue that AP-5 couldn't do it, but I disagree with a lot of the reasoning above.
    First, per Airen Cracken in the FAQ, I think there's precedent enough to suggest that if the target of a coordinate cannot perform the desired action, the coordinated ship could attempt a different action, you could coordinate a different ship, or perform another action entirely, entirely at AP-5's discretion.
    Second, I think if a particular Coordinate fizzles, you wouldn't run afoul of the "once per turn" restriction on particular actions any more than you'd be subject to it with Target Locks if the ship you want to lock is out of range.
    Next, I think you could make an argument that AP-5 wouldn't trigger unless the recipient of the action is actually able to perform the action.  So if you wanted to coordinate a boost to someone stressed, you'd measure the boost, if it fits, you'd then remove the stress and finish the coordination.  The text of AP-5 says "before it performs a free action" to me implies that the ship in question actually performs the free action.  I'd consider this a lot like Push the Limit, where if you attempt to Push into an action which doesn't work, you don't receive the stress.

    If you’re just using a U-wing as an alternate model on an existing Squadron card/base, then my vote is for VCX. 
    If we’re theory crafting a U-wing squadron for custom play, then I would give it Strategic and Raid with 4 hull, 3 speed, 3 blue anti squadron and 2 blue anti ship. The ace would be K-2SO with Strategic and Relay 1, same core stats, ability: “When you resolve the Strategic Keyword, you may move the chosen objective token so that it’s final position is at distance 1-2 of you.”

    jmswood got a reaction from MandalorianMoose in "Solo: A Star Wars Story" Expectations   
    Dismally low expectations. I’ll be looking for spoilers before I give Disney my money this time. 
    The mystery surrounding Han, Chewie, Lando, the Falcon and the Kessel Run is part of what makes them oustanding elements of Star Wars lore.
    The upcoming Solo film is set to repeat the mistakes of the Prequel Trilogy; telling us things we already know and showing us things we shouldn’t see.
    The Solo movie will probably be exciting and visually stunning, but I believe it will ultimately be a disservice to the audience.
