After reading all the responses in this thread I realize a few things about X-Wing for me. Its a light-hearted game that I love to play. I love to collect all the ship models, because after all its Star Wars. Some of those ships I have never put on the table. I enjoy the point change, why you might ask. I get stuck flying lists that I am comfortable with and win with. My favorite list just got hit by point upgrades. Now I can break out of my shell of that list and form some new thoughts on a new list just so I don't get stuck on the same list over and over. Just my two cents as to why I like Hyperspace, point adjustments, or whatever else causes me to break my list mold and explore new ones. I have found the game is more fun that way. Just a light-hearted game with new friends I would have never met. Yet competitive enough for the excitement that can come from a good close game that hinges on a die roll. Just my two cents.
