    Ryfterek got a reaction from Ccwebb in Cova Nell + R4 astromech   
    I do like to notice this is not stated. It is stated that the revealed manouvre is the manouvre selected on the dial, which may or may not disqualify one, or many, or any effects from applying to the dial and changing the details of the very manouvre that is selected on it. E.g. the difficulty of this manouvre may be changed. 
    That being said I do not insist this can or cannot work, just trying that emphasize that linking any of the rules directly with the print of the dial is (over)interpretation.
    That is correct. However, insisting that R4 doesn't apply to the content of your dial does break the Hera and Nien combo, as  Nien'd turns would qualify neither for the trigger, nor for the selection after the trigger is met. 
    Before this wave I don't remember any opposition to this combination being treated as valid, what leads me to a belief people simply want to "break" the rules in favour of the new toys they've just got.

    Giving you a rant-ish copy-paste from my local community discussion:
    The point is - many lean towards explanation that R4-esque effects apply to your dial. You had some manouvres on it and now you have them in easier "flavour". 
    If it works the way you support [R4, Nien etc applying only at execution time], then Nien + Hera combo cannot work and we talked about it already. 
    No one cared to disagree with Hera + Nien interaction before this Wave. No one had any objections to Hera + Nien combo. This combo doesn't make use of the new rules, so it hasn't changed. 
    It's simply because people got new fancy toy they are obsessed with getting better than it is that sparked the whole "it applies at execution, not at all times!' trend. And suddenly many call for re-interpretation of rules so that thier new combo works. And people using the old combo can go-eat-a-stick.
    Also, the new interpretation is stubbornly neglecting the fact there are effects with "while you execute ... decrease / increase it's difficulty" which clearly work the way that is suggested for the ongoing effects. If R4, Nien & etc. were not to apply to what manouvres you've got available to select - why aren't they using an existing wording that explicitly does the thing you argue is done implicitly?
    What's so hard in not trying to break the friggin game back to Combo-wing 1.0 all of the sudden? You've got a coolass ability, one of the few in the game, that makes you benefit from red manouvre, which usually leaves you vulnerable as ****. Bwings are spit upon for taking advantage from being stressed. Yet there's new toy and taking advantage from putting yourself in stress is not even enough - people push the rules to squeeze an action on top of that!
    Half a year of delight that the game is once again made of making proper decisions at proper time and bam! - "I want my tight turn / stay in place and wait, and my bonus dice AND my action!!! And my opponent should just feel bad for bringing a squadron that has counterplays!"

    Change the Coordinate action from "another friendly ship at range 1-2" to "a friendly ship at range 0-2." That would allow the Ghost to benefit from having the Phantom II docked, as it could coordinate itself.

    Calibrated Laser Targeting definitely works since you are adding a focus result after rolling dice.  7th Fleet Gunner only restricts the number of dice rolled, not the number of final dice results.
     
     
     
    Ric is a bit more unclear.  Some people like to think that the restriction is time sensitive and you can add additional dice after, others think it is an overall limit.  I'm not sure what the community consensus is currently, or if there is one.  It's probably best decided with your opponent before hand or ran by a TO at an organized event.

    Actually, just the last one. Numbers 1-3 are not allowed to spend the lock because they have to pass it over for the next ship to be able shoot the torpedo.

    Ryfterek reacted to emeraldbeacon in Snap Shot as a normal attack   
    Foresight, as well, looks to work this way, with the added bonus of no force cost for the chained attack.  And while it's not a great weapon, Foresight really isn't terrible, in most circumstances.  Even if your primary attack is 3, you're giving up 1 attack die to deny 1 defense, and you have a baked-in free calculate token.  Especially good if the source ship has 2 attack (like TIE Adv/v1 Inquisitors or non-Delta-7B Jedi)
    Also, cards, for reference!

    So what you're saying, is that when it says "cannot perform another action", it means "cannot perform another action".
    Tricky that.

    Fun fact, in the app, "Odd Ball" in the Y-wing is actually spelt "Oddball". 
    This means you can have 2 Odd Balls in your list.

    Hate to be sarcastic on you (sarcasm?), but how much foresight does it take after unpacking the conversion kit to notice they did not come up with a replacement part for this abomination of a peg we had for 1.0 Ghost? If they haven't made one to squeeze it to the Kit then the only next logical timeframe to manufacture one is at 2.0 release of the Ghost. Up until this happens, there's no "new, compatible peg" they could really send to anyone, anywhere. 
    So it really isn't the Customer Services' fault, they've been waiting for another team (development) and an external party (manufacturer) and they can only start sending replacement parts once there's something to replace (so not before release).
    The overall community experience with the CS seems to be strikingly positive, including handwritten notes coming in with replacement pieces. 
    To call out so bold a failure and imply the CS has deteriorated because thay can't come up with a single piece of a very specific dedicated upgrade/replacement part that the design and development team hasn't even figured out yet - it is unjust overreaction.

    Nobody has a problem with FFG CS, neither do you, as you clearly write, they email you back saying "they haven't got the part and will send it if/when they get it" (which is the truth), as the 2.0 Ghost has not been released yet.

    You strike me as a person, whose DVD of "The Last Jedi" broke, and now you want Disney to send you "The Rise of Skywalker", FOR FREE, AND RIGHT NOW - and if they dont you write on a Disney forum and ask if anyone else was having problems with Disney?
