    BDrafty got a reaction from DR4CO in Vader in a TIE Defender   
    Are we getting into a paradox here? A ship that strong needs to be high in points to represent its worth. However, the more points it has, the more points it can deny the opponent. If we were talking about a 20 hit point ship with 0 agility, but tons of other cool stuff, then more points are just fine. With Vader in a ship that can move this well, has this much beef, gets a free evade, and can double reposition at I 6 with two force tokens left in the bank, this has to be considered a superior points fortress. 
    I don't think Vader in this ship makes for a game worth playing.

    BDrafty got a reaction from JBFancourt in Vonreg’s Pilot Ability (If I were the designer)   
    My argument is mostly based on context and the motions that the game devs had to go through to translate abilities to second edition. Vader is a good example here in that JUST having force is a strong advantage. However, the player does have to erode that advantage in order to use his 2E ability. Not that the abilities of Fel and Vader are weak in 2E, but they are not the same level of 'Free' that they were in 1E. The point here is that the Devs had a path they kind of needed to follow to import these guys over.
    The new to 2E I6 guys like Ani and Vonreg seem to have abilities that are a lot more subdued compared to pilots who have a 1E counterpart.

    They DO, but some of the pilots with first eddition counterparts actually have weaker abilities than said counterparts (spend a force on Vader, Soontir has to do work to get the focus...Wedge is still Wedge). 
    I think Ani and Vonreg both have abilities that fall into the "sort of nice sometimes" category. Unlike Soontir, Sun Fac, and Vader, the ability doesn't really dictate how you fly them.

    40.  Having your Bro call you up for a game after your state opens back up from quarantine

    41. Brushing back up on rules and lists after about 3 months of no X-wing at all

    42. Remembering where you left all of your stuff and then getting your gear set for the game

    43. Remembering just how much information needs to be tracked and processed during a game of
    X-wing between two players who both hate to lose

    44. Getting excited for X-wing again (including the new points update!) and then having FFG remind you of the exact nature of the relationship…

    The Hyperspace quad-style sheets can be designed here and the Extended format sheets can be designed here.
