    They're up!!!

    Not according to YASB 2.0. All pilots show 3 crew.

    Already frothing at the mouth for that Wave 3 Clone Wars stuff

    Some people's favorite coke is Sprite, other's coke preference is Dr. Pepper. My favorite coke is Coke.

    Is the jamming action better than people think?

    I’d like to see a crew or mod that requires the jam action (white or red), turns the action white, and allows for one more ship to be jammed. You have to pay for it, but for ships that can jam it makes it a more worthwhile action.

    Miranda attack

    Bistan says after a primary attack. Torpedoes are not a primary weapon, so no.

    Why Predictive Shot May Possibly be OK

    Who is more foolish? The fool or the fool who follows him? 😄
  6. I'm not going to flame you, but I will disagree! I think a card like Trick Shot is perfect, and here is why. It is a useful card that gets plenty of play (your claim), but it does not break the game or give anyone some absurd advantage. Isn't that what we want? Usable cards that add a benefit but aren't overly powerful I thought is a goal of this game. Why raise the points? So that it won't be used as much or at all? Then it's just a card that just sits in our binders. I don't disagree that ships with a rotating arc might benefit more from this card. I'm not sure, though, how base size influences anything. But I think that putting a point scaling on a lot many cards for a lot of different reasons can become a bit of a nightmare, even when using an app/website.

    2.0 Battle of Endor Format??

    Also, Captain Rex was part of the crew on the Forest Moon.

    2.0 Battle of Endor Format??

    Forces of Destiny ("Chopper and Friends" and "An Imperial Feast") puts the Ghost on Endor at least around the time of the battle.

    Vander with R3 or R4?

    I tried R3 with a dorsal turret and veteran turret gunner. The goal was to shoot the primary with one lock then the turret with the other, having both 2-dice attacks modified. We don’t always achieve our goals.

    Vander with R3 or R4?

    I believe Dutch can only share the first lock. Here is Dutch's ability: "After you perform the lock action, you may choose 1 friendly ship at range 1-3. That ship may acquire a lock on the object you locked, ignoring range restrictions." <bold added by me> So the "after" that R3 talks about is after the lock from the action, not after the lock that is acquired from the "after the action" lock. The key difference is the action itself and acquiring a lock--nothing talks about after acquiring a lock, only after the action. The 2nd lock from R3 is not an action, so the part that I bolded above only applies to the first lock from the action. I'm certainly no rules expert, but that is how I read it.

    Rebel Players: Is It Worth Continuing to Play until January?

    I’ve thought this very thing. And I know that there are people that like to complain about FFG trying to make money, but they are a business so it makes sense from a sales standpoint, too. They’ve got new factions and ships coming that no one has, so give people a reason to buy them. If the stuff people already have is great, why would they buy into something weaker?

    No Glory Squad Variant

    Has anyone played around with the all-generic No Glory format? I'm not sure why, but I like the idea of no abilities for the pilots. But when looking at the named pilots vs generics, there doesn't seem to be enough of a point savings going with a generic compared to a ship with an ability (in most cases). That got me wondering if anything could be done to make generics more appealing when it comes time to build a list. Decrease generic cost? Increase named pilot cost? Am I crazy?

    Join the Wave 2 Chant!

    The title of this thread is Join in the (Wave 2) Chant. The name of that song is Join in the Chant. I loved that song back in the late 80s/early 90s, and the thread title reminded me of it. Sorry...
