    Dear devs: are we required to buy new ships?

    I can’t speak for the OP, but mine is the answer “it depends”. I want new ship types, yes. I don’t want to buy even more Of the ships I may have multiples of already.

    These forums will be unbearable in 2.0

    I may tune out of the forums once 2.0 is here.... .... I’ll be too busy with my free time list building again! Won’t be tied to a handful of squads.

    Why maul is not in the rebel conversion kit.

    Yes, we are certain. Someone third party did a full kit leak on reddit including the components page so we know he is not there.

    The X wing 2.0 New Meta will be defined by....

    I think it’ll be cyclical for a while as ffg struggles to find the true point cost balance.

    Star Wars Legion. basically - since the game has come out, we’ve had a new release every month. However, rather than have a “wave” drop, it is usually one or two at most expansions at a time. And if you aren’t buying both factions, it’s more like every other month. Works pretty well.

    Maybe maybe not. Assuming there are even waves like we are used to in xwing. Ffg could apply the Legion model of constant release, at least until all the 1e ships are in 2.0 blisters.

    I think you’re absolutely correct. Maul will be forthcoming in a rebel pack.
  8. Assess the greatest strengths and weaknesses of my opponents army, and then try to figure out how to use the terrain to play to my strength or to their weakness. Focus on the objective.

    Will we see new play mats?

    Always interesting and likely, though I will probably not spend any money on them. I have my standard starfield and my system open one. I don’t need more
  10. None, but only because I’m invested heavily in 3 already plus have the beginnings of the FO and Resistance. Budget has limits - and now with it being all content is available contained within a faction I intend on: 1. Converting what I own from 1.0 2. Waiting to see what the release pace looks like, then decide which I can keep up with and which are going to be abandoned. I am absolutely NOT even considering buying into another faction. I am highly likely to not buy into resistance and Fo past the conversion kits to bring my ships I have to life. Scum > Rebel > Empire > FO > Resistance for me. If I have to pick, that’s how it’ll go down. We shall see what the release rate is like and what I can keep up with. Now, if I was a newcomer and just getting into the frenzy, I’d be happy to scoop up CIS and Scum and call it a day.

    X Wing preview

    Good thing the app can fix it when balance is lost. re: Biggs, this is toned down from the original one. It’s basically DTF from 1.0, so I think it’ll be fine. He can’t completely stop you from attacking anyone else.

    Are you enjoying 1.0 more or less today?

    I am having fun because it’s always been fun for me. Sure I’ve been frustrated with some of the stuff that’s come up but I’ve never disliked the game. I am playing in an epic league in my area right now. Get some use out of the big ships before they go back to models without a way to use them (yet). I am working on finding what I want to fly in store champs.

    Predict the GenCon announcements

    I’d be ok with this happening in 2.0 format instead. Alternate formats could be supported in the app.

    What's going on around here?!?

    Don’t give them ideas!!! (although in honesty, the t65 packs given out at worlds would have had something like that and no one has reported such a thing)
