  1. Finally! According to the current article (let's hope it holds up) the Targeting Computer does not have any ship size restrictions on it like it did in 1st Edition. This means mean Grand Moff Tarkin can finally shove Krennic out the airlock and get a decent crew member to sit beside him in the Lamda Class Shuttle. Thoughts on who it should be? For theme, I am thinking Tarkin + Vader
  2. That would be the "Ultimate Inquisition" list... I love it!
  3. Now that the Decimator (my favorite ship even though it is not that good) is getting its third crew slot back (and keeping its Gunner Slot) what fun Party Bus ideas do we have to make the Empire great? Do you go all Darkside and pair Palpatine and Vader up together for a leisure cruise bromance across the stars? Maybe a handful of officers along with Grand Moff Tarkin for some moral support? Best and fun ideas are welcome...
  4. Never mind... my bad. Intimidation can be on a different ship.
  5. I am just curious, cause I only play Empire, is there a pilot that can take a Force and a Talent? where this would come up?
  6. I went the opposite way. My play mat IS a Yoga Mat (cut down to 3' x 3' of course) Works great!
  7. FFG could add limited dots to the cards by doing the following if this really does become a problem (I am not there yet, but I do empathize with the concern) 1) Increase the points cost of problem card to 250pts 2) Release a Card pack with new cards that have limited dots on them Example: 1) Increase the points cost of Sigma to 250pts 2) Release a Card pack with new pilots **Shadow Squad Recruit I am sure someone would be sad, but it would definitely cover it...
  8. Yup, that was a sad realization for me moving to 2.0. My Triple Punisher squad would now be taking the Proton Bomb in the face after their 1 forward. But never fear. With Ablative Plating we can once again laugh in the face of the Rebellion: Proton Bombs Do Not Concern Me (198) Cutlass Squadron Pilot (38) Trajectory Simulator (10) Ablative Plating (6) Barrage Rockets (7) Proton Bombs (5) Cutlass Squadron Pilot (38) Trajectory Simulator (10) Ablative Plating (6) Barrage Rockets (7) Proton Bombs (5) Cutlass Squadron Pilot (38) Trajectory Simulator (10) Ablative Plating (6) Barrage Rockets (7) Proton Bombs (5)
  9. Sounds like a good plan. I have written FFG at that link with the following in case anyone simply wants to copy and paste: ********************************************************************************************************* FFG I am writing you today with concern for the Page Tico and Deathfire ruling that was posted on March 21st in the X-Wing Official Rulings thread. While I understand that we wish to grant Page Tico and Deathfire their ability even if they already deployed a device, however, my concern revolves around the explanation given and the (until now) absolute of the Golden Rules. To officially state that they can deploy a second device (which is in conflict with a Golden Rule) solely because their cards do not state that they cannot deploy a second decive establishes a very real precedent that all Golden Rules are overridden by pilot ability for any card where the pilot ability does not also re-mention the Golden Rule. Here is a short list of examples that seem to be back up for debate due to this ruling: 3+ Attacks can be made through any ability that grants a Bonus Attack that does not include the verbiage "unless you have already performed an attack this round" Multiples of the same action can be made through any ability that grants said Action that does not include the verbiage "unless you have already performed a [that action] Action this round" Actions can be performed while stressed if granted by an ability that does not include the verbiage "unless you are stressed" Re-Rolled Dice may be re-rolled again (and again) if granted by an ability that does not include the verbiage "unless you have alreaddy Re-Rolled..." As a player who loves this game and wants to continue to be able to play it whithout having to constantly defend against the Golden Rules, and to help TOs from having to rule against an Official Ruling, I am emploring you to overturn this ruling, and instead take some other course of action to grant Page Tico and Deathfire thier ability (i.e. Change the Golden Rule via an Errata to be "Once per Phase", Errata thier cards to include the verbiage "Even if you have already dropped or launched..." and Errata Edon Kappehl to remove its verbiage as it is redundant to the Golden Rule, etc...) I do appricate your help with this.
  10. I am also feeling the the Knights of Ren were (unfortunately) written out of the trilogy, or more like thrown away (like other TFA concepts) by Ryan, as well as Kylo's Helmet. I would be very surprised if they show up in Episode IX
  11. The lead trooper (in the front and middle of the formation) looks awfully Clone-ish. Might just be me, though...
  12. unless they are bringing back the Clone Troopers... this looks totally fake.
  13. Me an @Lyianx are going to be the Brothers Champions of this cause. I already got into a handful of unpleasant conversations because of the Paige-Deathfire ruling. As stated, the ability for those two pilots to do that is NOT the problem. The problem is that in this ruling, FFG has officially now said, "Pilot Abilities supersede the Golden Rules unless the Pilot Ability also includes the Golden Rule" which opens up the floodgates for all kinds of mayhem (Tie Interceptor Autothrusters can now allow for multiple Barrel Rolls in a round, Any ability that grants an Action allows said action even while stressed, Ships can perform more than 1 Bonus attack if granted by an ability... dogs and cats living together...)
  14. Arggggg... Yeah, this is bad. The Rules-Benderd are going to be pointing to this ruleing to make a whole ton of stuff work. It completely overrides the "Do what the card says, not what it doesn't say" swim lanes that are so important to the rules of this game. For funzies and sarcasm, lets start a list of all the things you can "now do" due to the this ruling: Perform an action while stressed if granted by an ability that does not also state "Unless you are already Stressed" Perform a third bonus attack if granted by an ability that does not also state that "Unless you already performed a Bonus Attack" Aquire a Target Lock at any Range if granted by an ability that does not also state "At Range 0-3" Aquire Multiple Target Locks if a TL is granted by an ability that does not also state "Unless you already have a TL" Perform multiple Barrel Rolls or Boosts if granted by an ability that does not also state "Unless you have already performed" said action .....
  15. Even from the minimal amount of posts I have on here, it can be seen that I play Empire and FO. For second edition, I was so excited to see Tarkin, as in 1st ed. he was Epic only (which i did not play) My vent... with the exception of the Decimator (which is cost prohibitive to put a commander on), there are no Empire crew carriers that have Target Lock. The result... Tarkin is now forced to be best buddies with Krenic. From a cannon point of view, this is lame as they pretty much are the opposite of buddies. From a synergy point of view (outside of Krenic adding the TL which is required) they have no synergy with each other. I want to run Tarkin without Krenic... Run him with Vader, or a Tac Officer, or something that would be useful, cause his ability could be great. But nope... just a bromance that no one wanted. additionally, Tarkin's timing seems to leave something to be desired. By making it the system phase, it forces the TL acquire to happen in the previous round. If his ability fired at the beggining of engagement, then that would be awesome!!!! Sad...
