    I’ve been on BGG so long I forgot you have to ‘buy’ your avatar there with ‘geek gold’ (earned through contributions, tips, site support, and other means). I should be able to fund avatars for quite a few FFG refugees though. If anyone is interested just drop a note to say hi (or whatever) in this thread: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2564345/ffg-forums-be-shut-down-12021. I’ll keep any eye out for folks without avatars and tip you some gold for one (well, until I run out).

    BGG looks like a good alternative,  with tons of traffic to begin with.

    I could spend for some avatars as well, I have a lot of GeekGold (drop me a message here, with your handle at BBG, and I might contribute). Got all the Gold Both from helping the BBG site keep up by supporting with real money, and from showcasing pics and rule variants, strategy write ups etc.
    So, show your X-wing repaints there and gather GeekGold for your avatar!

    I’m also partial to the forum format and BGG. Here is the X-Wing forum for those unfamiliar: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/252328/star-wars-x-wing-second-edition/forums/0?pageid=1&sort=recent.

    Not sure if you know, but scrolling down on the right hand side is the "Family" linkings.  Clicking on the star wars x-wing will allow you to subscribe to the whole family of expansion forums.  so when they get updated it alerts you:

    Or I can post the link.  click on the subscribe button there an it will alert you to any forum postings for all the expansions

    @DarthHenryAllen Thanks, indeed.
    There is another ...
    When I discovered X-wing, I was lurking the BGG forum before I came here and found that there was much more going on at FFG.   But for almost any single (board) game out there, BGG will remain a safe place to gather.
    The only problem with the boardgamegeek site is that there is a separate page and forum for every single version and expansion.  I'd expect the main discussion to be at https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/252328/star-wars-x-wing-second-edition
    The X-wing traffic there is low, but this need not stay like this.  It's a proper forum, not just a timeline quickly disappearing into the void.
    Just a reminder about the BGG forum sections:
    All Reviews Sessions General Rules Strategy Variants News Crowdfunding Play By Forum Organized Play This should essentially cover the subsections of this forum, right?   There are image and file sections, which already have some content and could carray more (custom cards, repaint images, etc.).  Just in case ...

    Hi, mostly a lurker here but I’ve enjoyed this community for several years. 
    With this forum going down, does BoardGameGeek make sense as a place to migrate to? There is a dedicated X-Wing 2.0 forum there divided up into rules/variants/news/etc. sub forums: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/252328/star-wars-x-wing-second-edition/forums/0. I think the site also supports adding a wiki page coupled to a game, which could hold ‘important links’ type information.

    Sorry if the answer is obvious. I have never really explored Reddit and discord, maybe I should, but from my little exposure they don’t seem appealing. And I do know I don’t like Facebook as an alternative forum location. So just thought I’d plug BGG since I’m familiar with that one and haven’t heard it brought up much.

    Personally, I'm still clinging to original box storage as much as possible. I know most people probably prefer plano/foam for their ships but the original box is still a really nice size for dials and tokens. You can fold construction paper to make channels, 2" for 2.0 dials, 1.5" for small tokens. Here's my Rebel box in progress with the dial channel updated to fit 2.0.

    DarthHenryAllen reacted to Wazat in Revisiting & Revising my dumb Miranda fleet   
    I like the certainty of proton bombs.  Bomblet Generator's tendency to blank out when I really need a damage hurts, especially when it's so hard to get foes in the blast zone already.
    Also, recovering the shield doesn't always work out for bomblet generator's timing.  It needs to spend the shield at the start of activation, while Miranda regains her shield during engagement, with plenty of time to lose the shield again to enemy fire.
    But if you're good at avoiding shots or you're fighting foes that shoot before you recover the shield, bomblet generator would be slightly faster at recharging and wouldn't disarm you.  But as you say, it hurts that it takes up all her payload slots.  And I've found Miranda's shield doesn't last: either she wants to recharge to survive incoming fire, or she wants to spend the shield trying to murder something with her Han shot before it can shoot back.

    DarthHenryAllen got a reaction from gennataos in Nest of ‘Vipers at Worlds!   
    That is pretty convincing that draws are bad! The suggestion in the comments of awarding draws 0 points, losses 1 and wins 3 was interesting though unintuitive.
    I wonder if it would work to just keep Final Salvo, but you only get to use it if you've crossed some point threshold (33? 50?). Otherwise both players just lose. So no draws on tie scores, you either get a loss or a Final Salvo if you actually did enough damage to each other in game.
    Good read, thanks!
