  1. After almost 2 years of documentation, Research and pure hatred for players not engaging, my journey is done. Here is all the information I have created for slow play or pace of play for a 75 minutes, 200 point game of X-Wing. Please note that this is pure tracking and average numbers of all levels of play, from all skill level of players. I am providing this information because I have been asked, read comments online and I am genuinely curious on how the game functions. I am not declaring in favor or against enforcing strict pace of play rules for any or all levels of X-Wing tournaments. I am happy to take any criticisms for sharing this information and I am happy with the results of my findings. You can contact me at reconspecialisttv@gmail.com Document explaining data: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1B8FFNISj-Thr3kJDXlLwAvu5WlXeo4_s/ Excel sheet of Data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1n9AfpRUWB_IvuThYg4_KZY62AUR_PHd2/edit#gid=1356665778
  2. Hello There! We are closing in on Christmas, the New Year, and the next Town Hall! We were so pleased with the response to our first episode and cannot wait for Episode 2! So, lets get started with our Next Episode: Bang for your Buck! Out of the many podcasts we listen to, including our own, we are seeing a theme. In the past, the community podcasters talk about new players getting into the game and making the best list for the lowest amount. With second Edition it isn’t that simple anymore. We have hyperspace Opens, Extended events, and now Epic and Huge ships are even playable. Here at Recon Specialist we want to give you new players a head start into buying into X-Wing and keeping up at the tables. We are offering a competition to make the best and cheapest(dollar cost) list for all three events for an amazing prize! Here is how to enter to win a 1st Edition Raider! We want everyone to create lists that could qualify for a 200 points Hyperspace tournament, a 200 points Extended tournament and a 500 points Epic list! Hold on, it isn’t that easy. You have to make each list with the same faction and the same ships you would need to buy to make a full list! So, if you buy Vader, Sootir and a Grand Inquisitor… that has to go into the Epic list or at the very least goes into the total cost of your list. You also can only use the upgrade cards found in each transaction you decide to purchase. Did I mention you have to keep track of your costs? We know the importance of Local Gaming Stores, but 2nd Edition has not made it easy for new players and certain ships are not for sale yet. We also want you to create a shopping list for all your ships. You can search online (Ebay, and Amazon), sales at your local store, and even the Facebook market! Compile your list, track your costs through links and submit them here or email [reconspecialisttv@gmail.com](mailto:reconspecialisttv@gmail.com). We will decide the winner and discuss our tops picks live on stream! FYI: If you want a ship in your list and it doesn’t have a second edition blister than you must include the expansion kit cost as default or the purchase of the cardboard from an online source. If you need an upgrade card that isn’t in the blisters\auctions you “purchased”, you need to add the cost of buying the card individually. If you want a raider in your list, you need to add the cost of an expansion kit or find one through an online market that includes the ship and its 2nd addition pieces. We know this is a lot to ask for from our community but Padre and I will also be participating just to show how difficult and fun it can be to start from the beginning. I myself bought ships on Ebay, saved for instore purchases and traded upgrades to complete my vast collection. Let us show everyone how to make some solid lists and show FFG where they are leaving their communities newer players. We will be going live December 30th at 9pm EST and all lists must be submitted by December 25th! Good luck to everyone!
  3. Thank you! I just needed someone else to confirm my same conclusion. The part of a normal ship and then only referring to the dial threw me. Just played a game tonight and it was amazing! Thank you again!
  4. Not a question of want or opponents plan. There are question down the road that will open up and it is best to know if the action bar becomes “unlocked” if they leave formation. I would like opinions on that matter, not if it is advantageous

  6. Would anyone like to share input or help decide about the definition of a wingman for huge play? The rules state several times when a ship in no longer in formation it is a normal ship. It does somewhat say in the same sentence that it is a normal ship by getting its own dial, but I do not know if it gets its full action bar back. I want to declare that a wingman ship should stay a wingman even out of formation, and therefore never gets a full action bar. This would keep people from pulling shenanigans with squads leaving the turn before so they could slam into you next turn or have four phantoms come back. Of course they can be four normal ships but not benefit from formation flying Any more pairs of eyes would be great and thank you!
  7. Are the new scenarios going to be incorporated into regular tournaments or will they have their own tournament bracket?
  8. Yea you keep saying two pics, but then skip over googling his id, clicking the videos that i shared that showed the links, listening to a podcast that mentions his name and so on. But keep ignoring all the information i posted, others who followed it had no trouble finding his identity. That is the only point i set out to make, but instead of apologizing for your, “nice claim.” Comment you doubled down and lost.
  9. Again you are not acknowledging my point. I clearly stated that i was here to prove ardvark was a renowned judge and he can speak for other judges. I proved you wrong on this and only this: ardvark = renowned judge. You played dumb kept arguing other things i wasnt a part of. I posted video of where i got those pics and told you to google killerardvark and you would know his name and could confirm his identity. But you trolled, back pedaled and now are refusing to admit his position to the xwing community. You admitted to trolling so any point being made at this point is null and void.
  10. we are one page. I don't think you are paying attention or have me confused with someone else. but you have been proven wrong and that is all that matters. calling me a troll is funny since I literally had to show you a well known judge and exposed you for playing a victim. I would not be classified as a troll but actually informing you of facts. Edit: also you never used the word troll in any of the posts between you and I. Proven wrong again. Man it hurts to be this good.
  11. I now know you are trolling. Have a good day and good luck with your ethical issues.
  12. So after two links, two pictures and informing you of who he is, do you now admit he is who he claims? That is the point I am making. I also am defending him against your claim that he said you cannot have an opinion. All other debate is not relevant. I do not care what your ethical dilemma is with X-Wing, but his reputation and the information he provided to you on how a majority of judges rule. Also you still have not quoted him in writing of him telling you, you can't have an opinion. I have made my case.
  13. Nope. I read what he said, and here it is: Also confirmed it's ok by Michael Jures (North American Championship 2x judge and marshal this year, upcoming worlds judge, System open judge 3x), Iain Hamp (Marshalled more system opens that I can count, worlds judge 3x), and Brent Wong (Worlds judge 4x i think, System open marshall and judge multiple times, North American Championship multiple times, etc.) I now challenge you to go to any tournament above a Hyperspace Trial and try to call a judge on someone doing this. There's a decent chance you'll get one of these people and be disappointed. HE never made such a claim, he challenged you to go find a judge to rule in your favor. This is him using multiple judges as example of how they would rule, and this is for other countries as well. Clearly you are not reading these post fully or carefully enough. You have been shown his credentials, he has shown top judges around the world who rule as he claims, and he asked you to go find a judge that rules as you do. Please copy and paste him saying you don't have the right to an opinion cause it isn't in here. And again, this has nothing to do with anything. Cause then I will say as an IT professional I have gone to other departments and stepped on their toes to show them how they are wrong. They were corrected and all was well: Like in the job I held. I was the inspector (sanitarian is a fancy work for health inspector) in one county. A sanitarian would have been stepping on my toes had they come into my county and tried to hold inspections. Just as aardvark is by telling judges in events that he is not actually working at as a judge that they have to go by his ruling and that they do not have the right to rule differently.
