  1. Why couldn't they just go to the Loopin' Chewie again? Seems like we need to at least keep that option on the table.
  2. But, the Machine IS the fun of the wave. No? OK fine. Reading and math bad. Sincere thanks to Mr. Paul Rudd for the bad things he has done here, as well as to everyone questioning and reinforcing the work. This stuff is why I keep coming back.
  3. I am gonna go ahead with this hot take and say that Palp is either alive or this is a misdirecting recording. Given how that kind of misdirection would likely be received, I am gonna speculate that he is alive and either was Snoke or was using Snoke as a puppet. This is because I believe that Disney canon will firmly follow the interpretation that Sith cannot become Force Ghosts. It requires selflessness and a oneness with the Force that unredeemed Sith cannot achieve. In meta terms, this further ties the semi-religious concept of the Force to the more positive and popular of the real world interpretations of faith in a guiding power. Good people get a good afterlife or rebirth. Even bad people can be forgiven if they truly atone, so there is always hope and a reason to be better. Unrepetent bad people, on the other hand, only suffer from death and the uncertainty it brings. They cling to life, no matter the cost, because they fear death so much. This is also based on statements from Pablo Hidalgo and the episodes "Sacrifice" and "Destiny" from the newly resurgent Clone Wars series. JJ has admitted that he leans heavily on the guys universe knowledge and Pablo has been pretty clear how he feels about the question in the past. Sith cannot be Force ghosts. Yet Palp is laughing at us again somehow? He never actually died. It's the only explanation that currently makes sense in the official canon. Though the power of hamdwavium or even basic bait has certainly denied me my obvious mental superiority before 😡. I am not, in any way, sure that this isn't just a long lost recording of Palp being dangled as bait. I don't think they have underestimated Kylo's popularity at all either. He was definitely my favorite in 8, while I thought he was little more than a bad Vader clone in 7. With that in mind, I don't like the pettiness of fixing the destroyed mask, as I had hoped he would discard it for good in an effort to move beyond trying to emulate his very limited image of his grandfather. I always liked that part and hope he eventually realizes what a mistake that stupid mask/persona was. Eh, it certainly won't make or break the entire movie for me. I cannot wait and I also hope that at least Thrawn appears. The Skywalker title does tie into the books about him nicely and the Chiss arriving from unknown space could both serve as a way to grow interest among more traditional fans and expand the story into new space. That's why the Chiss have Skywalkers right? To navigate uncharted space hazards using the Force to guide them right?
  4. Unfortunately, I think you are a victim of a double edged condition here. It wouldnt be exclusive or rare if there were enough for everyone to get one. You probably only barely missed your chance, so keep trying and you will feel that other edge when you succeed. That said, the second they go the Attack Wing route and start doing con exclusive cards or ships that give exclusive and meaningful list options, they will have lost every penny of my business.
  5. Red rotate on a large based ship that is already paying the turret point tax really is the truest sign of FFG's hate. Wasn't there just a thread asking why Han in the Resistance Falcon is so poorly priced and balanced? Large bases as a whole are relegated to more of a support role for now it seems. Maybe someone can make Maul a threat, but so far the Infiltrator also looks like it is best used as a support crew carrier. No turret of curse, but the whole environment of 2.0 seems to make the big base itself a significant downside. Best to pay the least you can unless you are getting an amazing support ability like Rebel Lando.
  6. Will have to wait and see what they can get from the Hyena and Resistance transport spreads, but not much for X-Wing. Armada goes full casual rpg. Legion models get an upgrade in quality. Legion players envy our app and regular point adjustments. Epic 2.0 is done in development, so amazing, and coming soon.
  7. FFG YouTube stream looks to be for a Star Wars board game, Outer Rim.
  8. Eh, yeah it is definitely still doing well, but I guess I got used to seeing it at the top.
  9. 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?
  10. I mean, doesn't the fact that they can conceivably be overlapped kind of prove that they cannot block?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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."
  15. 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.
