  1. Why in the world is this thread still open? @FFG Brian? @Koing907, obviously, you're frustrated. Maybe just take a break, huh? From X-Wing? From stress? From something.

    Yeah, that's my gut, too. Kill the bid but keep the squad.

    Flock of Vultures?

    "Unlike many raptors, vultures are relatively social and often feed, fly or roost in large flocks. A group of vultures is called a committee, venue or volt. In flight, a flock of vultures is a kettle, and when the birds are feeding together at a carcass, the group is called a wake." VOLT: KETTLE: _________________________ As a side note discussion... I feel like Vultures are gonna chase off most other swarms from the tables. I play Resistance, and I don't feel like 5/6 RZ2 A-wings will do well against 8 vultures with shenanigans, or against 7 Vultures + Ace. Just my thoughts. Bantering, begin!

    Yup. Just blow up a whole flock of Vultures camping on their rock. If only I had a ship that could throw seismic charges 5 forward in front of me while I zero stop and wait to double tap what's left with my VTG...

    This might be interesting... Cosmic Format

    @Da_Brown_Bomber, I don't just think it's a great idea, I'd be surprised if ffg doesn't add this kind of "Dark side Vs Light Side" format after we've got all 7 factions out there. People are gonna want the ability to create combined squads on the main app somehow.

    Improving Cannons

    My opinion on control, both cannons and Ion Missiles, has actually shifted to positive since 2.0 launch in 2018. What you're buying, more than control, is that Third red dice. You are increasing your odds of hitting many 3+ agility targets at all. The control is often a bonus. Most 2 attack ships love that increased chance to damage to a token-stacked ace ... even for just 1 point of damage. Ie. Homing missiles.

    GSP Appreciation/Discussion Thread

    I guess they took down a detroyer or two ... And they drew fire during the Death Star trench run... ...so there's that. Thanks for the content, @musical xeno!

  9. Hey... Whaddya expect with old gunner AND old non-bullseye predator?! That's just bonkers. And no rotate to worry about. Man, we're we spoiled. Its amazing anyone ever played with arced ships that didn't have regen.
  10. Was a pretty tough call with only two "bad guy ships" to work with. I sometimes draw inspiration from the included mini-missions in a lot of the large-base ship expansions (or Squadron packs had a few, too, I think). Happy New Year!

    Using medium bases in 1.0...any thoughts?

    ARC is wider, maybe, but the size treatment is for game-balancing per the devs intent. 1.0 U-Wing was balanced as a Large Base ship, and as such has access to "Reinforced Deflectors" and Targeting Jammer" (or whatever the "your ship may obstruct attacks" card is called), and CAN NOT use "small base only" cards like "Deadeye". The inverse applies to the ARC. Etc. However, all this is simply information... If you're already playing altered 1.0 rules at home, nobody is stopping you from making it however you like it. Cheers! -k
  12. First post on the "Official Rulings" thread: Q: What does “ignores obstacles” mean? Do Han Solo [Pilot, Customized YT-1300] and Qi’ra [Crew] work together? What about Dash Rendar [YT-2400] and Outrider [Title]? A: When an effect says a ship “ignores obstacles,” it means that ship “ignores the effects of obstacles.” A ship that is “ignoring obstacles” does not apply the effects of overlapping or moving through them. When that ship performs an attack that is obstructed by an obstacle it ignores the effects of the obstruction, so the defender does not roll 1 additional defense die being obstructed by the obstacles the attacker is ignoring. However, the obstacles are still treated as being present for effects that check for their presence or absence. Additionally, an attack is obstructed by an obstacle even while the effects of the obstacle are ignored. This applies to cards such as Outrider, Han Solo [Pilot, Customized YT-1300], and Trick Shot (Talent). Additionally, other ships do not ignore the obstacle when resolving effects that interact with a ship that is ignoring obstacles. For instance, while a ship that is ignoring obstacles defends, if the attack is obstructed, it still rolls 1 additional defense die because the attacker is not ignoring the effects of obstacles.

    [Hyperspace] Porg Patrol (AAAAX)

    So glad you put your Porg paints to good use! Saw those on the painting thread. Awesome. Totally agree about Jess, although Heroic is bonkers on generic Red Experts. I'd run it without a bid. Rare exception, but I don't think you'll be losing that much for Lulo or Tallie, since you're not flying this thing to arc-dodge as much.

    What are the most underrated pilots for each faction in 2.0?

    First Order: Upsilon in general. Resistance: Most T70s besides Poe. Probably Tubbs and Kare Kun.
