    ICv2 Fall 2018

    Eh, yeah it is definitely still doing well, but I guess I got used to seeing it at the top.

    ICv2 Fall 2018

    I saw an article about this report and didn't see any discussion here yet. ICv2 Fall 2018 Should we be concerned? Is this easily explained by the timing of the Second Edition drop? It seems like it would include sales of Second Edition Core Sets and conversion kits for the OT Factions, but I can't get at the full report and don't want to pay for the privilege. I understand the popularity of the Warhammer franchise, but seeing my favorite game behind anything WizKids hurts. I get that DnD is really popular as well, but the quality of WizKids stuff... Anyway, what does everyone else think?

    Sith Infiltrator Preview

    I mean, doesn't the fact that they can conceivably be overlapped kind of prove that they cannot block?

    Scum post points adjustment... now what?

    I've been trying to make Serissu work, but her potential might end up wasted on the Scyk. She has been one of my favorite Scum pilots since launch, but she needs at least a couple green heavy wingmates she can actually fly at range 1 with. I have had fun pairing her with Seevor at least. I think about Serissu in an Imperial faction Ln and wonder if even Serissu + Howl + Iden could bring the swarm back. Guess it only leaves room for two or three filler TIE though, so I guess those three ladies might not be the ticket either

    Advanced Daredevil Corran is super fun to play

    Great idea I hadn't thought of with Nien. Thank you sincerely for that. I may not be getting part of what you were saying though. It's my understanding that the Nien you mentioned still can't use the boost action twice in a turn. So if you 3tallon into PA 1 daredevil boost, he can't boost again until the next turn.

    How are the other 5 Factions getting Ion Clouds?

    A little too far down the corporate apologist path here. Companies certainly do owe you some things. The should not substantially misrepresent their earnings or their products. They should not pollute the environment and be unwilling to take responsibility. They should not sell products that do not provide for a reasonable expectation of safety. Ion gas cloud availability just falls more in line with a typical marketing tactic, so yes, people feeling entitled to something that they aren't. I can sympathize though. FFG did make a point of saying they would change this particular tactic and the overall result is pretty disappointing so far. I suppose it could be seen as a misrepresentation of the game system they thought they were buying into, but somehow I doubt this would be a big enough issue with the game that anyone in a position of authority would agree that it qualifies as substantial. You may think that I am being trite here. Well, first of all how DARE you. After starting your own post with a dictionary definition of patience I mean lol. Second, I have known a few too many fresh MBA's that hold the absolute version of your statement about what companies owe us close to heart, even if it's not necessarily the one that you intended. So that's on me and my possibly tangentially related shattered expectations.

    They added an I to his name. Chirrut. Blnd Monk archetype from Rogue One. "I am one with the Force. The Force is with me."

    Double-Tap Vennie

    I always like to put the new A-Wings with Vennie too. Her ability may not absolutely require them, especially with Paige gunning, but they are just so much fun. I would have a really hard time not loading her up with the seismics as well.

    Purple evades are dank

    When introducing a faction that you know many people will buy anyway, start them out weak and build them up a little with every new release. This keeps already invested buyers on the hook. Purple evades are next to useless with our current understanding. Bullseye abilities on ships that can't swarm puts all the burden of execution on you. Fine for one ship in a small squad, but not all. Need some boring, reliable salad in there for good health. (Soontir will forever be the only affordable true arc dodging ace) When introducing something for a faction that isn't as popular or everyone's first buy, start them strong and nerf them down after a few waves, then sell something that barely makes them competitive again. This gets buyers to invest, and keeps them on the hook for both this faction and the one that actually interests them. Han gunner totally seemed balanced to us at this cost, we swear. This has the additional benefit of creating the illusion that you are trying to reach balance, instead of manipulating it for solid marketing reasons. Oh, we are just kinda bad at design, we have no idea what will be good and what won't. 😁 Cue the X-Files theme song for my conspiracy theory please

    Carolina Krayts is the best X-Wing podcast

    I think you have misunderstood Han's pilot ability and how it works with Lando. If you choose to reroll a dice, you reroll all dice in that roll. So, I think it averages out to 1.25 tokens. That you never get to choose. In return for your action. At 2 pts, he is more appropriately costed and worth trying again simply for the possibility of getting an evade token without needing the title. Especially with Jyn around somewhere in range 0-3. Personally, R2D2 is stapled to the Han pilot card, so that leaves one spot on the Falcon.

    Are the new Points available yet

    Can confirm that Jayden is whipping the heck out of even the professional, well developed snow clearing capacity of the northern Midwest. We do not cancel school for less than 10 inches, and this has buried us.

    Illegal Squad at Phoenix / Trip Upsilon (no relation)

    Somehow mitigating or avoiding that opening volley is going to be the key. They can't replicate that token stack ever again. They can't turn and they get in their own way with large bases and poor dials. That said, I don't know how to beat it on the table either. Tried messing with my own positioning with Resistance Han and flying an Eval party bus off the board. Tried absorbing one shot with Iden, tried spreading its damage with Biggs and selflessness. Certainly tried running from the joust, but that really does not seem like the right solution. Pretty sure that the fix will be to make Hyperspace Tracking Data unique or at least unable to generate that absurd token stack for three ships. Each ship only gets one token max for example. Not sure it will be enough, or I should say that variance and the willingness to skip a reinforce in favor of coordinating an offensive mod instead will still allow that opening round to hurt my list badly enough to make the game a real uphill battle.

    つ ◕◕ ༽つ SUMMON NEW POINTS ༼ つ ◕◕ ༽つ

    Happy new points day everyone. Can't wait to start tinkering with the new information.
  14. So you do definitely only expect them to name one world champion then and agree that they will need to pretty much officially pick a favored format at some point? No need for both an Extended and Hyperspace Championship game? I suppose it's a possibility, but yeah there will probably be a single one decided on at some point. I think we all suspect that the answer will be Hyperspace format .
  15. I wasn't aware that they had discussed the format or many details at all for the 2019 World Championships. The decision they make there will make a big difference in how the formats are seen going forward. Big themed tournaments are fun events, but I think most people will consider the format of the world championships the default competitive format.
