    Because they want to highlight their other games and make sure people who are fans of those games get excited too.

    Grab the X-Wing Unified 2.0 mod from the workshop, it's the only thing you need. You can join the official discord and somebody in the lfg channel would most likely be willing to show you how it works. There are tons of resources from the devs to help. It's actually quite intuitive and straightforward.

    It feels that way but that's just because FFG has had so many releases and articles and updates for X-Wing compared to literally every other game they make.
    This isn't true anymore, FFG employees said as much. While still important, it isn't their bread and butter, whether from circumstance or from FFG actively moving in a different direction. I think they saw something on the horizon and want to put more effort into their other miniatures games.
    This is what has happened. FFG employees essentially said they want to focus more on Legion and Armada. Legion has been performing really well for them and Armada as always has been there and a surprise to them with it's performance. They want to lean into those two games more.
    Also, bad reprint choices in some cases.
    TTS is a great substitute for this. It simulates actual games well, although nothing makes up for the tactile feel of actually holding plastic ships and joking in person with buddies.
    How has that been?

    It seems that most cards get vastly better with higher initiative.
    Is it time that every upgrade is variable costed on initiative (when they aren't costed on something else)?

    Skitch_ reacted to Darth Sanguis in Where is all the stock?   
    It's this. 

    Empire Games of Anderson South Carolina is an amazon seller they bought up 30+ of the Arquittens and sold every single one at $39.99 



    Which is usually a $19.95 expansion. 



    It's one thing if some lucky gamer finds one while they're out of print and turns it around at double MSRP, but when a"FLGS" turns around and scalps the reprints, they're ******* scum.

    Yes, flak is jargon for a ship’s anti squadron attack.
     
    It depends. Sometimes people want a fully loaded SSD with all upgrade slots filled. Sometimes you want a barebones ship to save points. It all depends on your particular strategy. 
     
    Start with one or two upgrades per ship. Don’t try to have a fully loaded ship until you understand what all the upgrades do. @BiggsIRL and @shmitty recently published a great starter scenario on their blog:

    All of the above. It depends on your play style.

    No to splitting.
    Yes to create subfactions with ship/pilot/crew restrictions, drawbacks and synergies. You could do Mandalorians, Black Sun, The Hutts, and many more. I'm all in for thematic listbuilding.

    Speak for yourself.
    Yes, I want it earlier but I want it done right - and with some of the surprises of the show being kept a secret, there’s no way Disney let that one slip ahead of release.
    Remember when the Uwing came out in 1.0 and was kind of a miss because it only had partial data? Or the t70 and bomber pilots having a lot of call signs because they didn’t have names yet? Yeah, I don’t want to go back to that. I’d rather the game take longer to catch up on ships but have it done right in one go than be stuck in the sorta kinda read in but not really stuff.

    @melminiatures - If you ever find yourself with abundant free time, could we get your version of this? Your 3D model Star Wars library has to be the best, most comprehensive in existence outside of LucasFilm! None of these videos ever get the size of the Hammerhead corvette right, either!

    My best third party builder had been and is X-wing Squad Designer for Android by David Borque since first edition. Clean lay out, easy add delete sort and duplicates. Sortable saves. Card library. Dial charts. Great export to share function. Almost next day updates of any reveal. Game Format functions. And more besides that I never really mess with. Even had a neat archive box for saved squads. It's not on any of the stores though, you have to download it from their site.

    This would be so goofy. This would allow the quadjumper to be in so many strange places and orientations. I love this idea.

    Skitch_ reacted to Scum4Life in A Config idea for the Quadrijet   
    I would really enjoy configs being added to a number of ships, especially as part of Hotshots / Pilot packs.
    I'd be interested in a config that enables a Quadjumper to add an additional tractor token after perfroming the tractor action i  exchange for an ion token. (Or perhaps some other negative token)
    Overcharged Tractor Array.
    This lets Quadjumpers more easily tractor medium bases and enables them to be able to tractor large base ships.

    Skitch_ got a reaction from Hiemfire in X-Wing articles ?   
    I agree with everything said.
    I think anything that allows a player to push a decision to later in the round has to be scaled with initiative. I think Passive Sensors should be the same way as well.
