    "limited edition" ships?

    We really are just talking about hurt feelings though. Hurt feelings do matter, but if you think Disney gives one **** about how you feel, you are mistaken.

    Standing out from the Swarm Article

    Just because you collect X-wing, does not make it a collectable game. If I collect huge bran flakes, is it nutty to get pissed at Raisin Bran if they start selling huge-flake cereal, but only in Tasmania? What percentage of customers do you suppose buy X-Wing Minature soley for the models? Has to be minimal.

    A handful of alt paint schemes does not a collectible game make. Players have to pay to get into Adepticon, and pay agian for most events; almost every company with events gives out swag, and that is what this is.

    scum players: what ship do u want to see in wave5?

    With so many new ships getting moving parts, maybe a YV-666 with 'Maneuver Vanes' or a Firespray with multiple shifting parts. I would love to see the IG tho!

    3 YV-666's ??!

    The gunner slot is nice, but only a few gunners are worth taking; BT-1 and Dengar are obvious.

    Servants of Strife Preview Article

    Siesmics are cheap, but using them without trajectory sims means you have to fly a fairly predictable path. While you're blasting 'roids, those droids can still formation fly and work on positioning. Points mean context. If well costed, they seem fun.

    Deep thinking: or how to plan several rounds ahead.

    You will not be able to head off your opponent with a balanced attack, until you can balance this tack-hammer on your head.

    X-Wing TMG 2.0 Feels Watered Down

    I view the metaphor like this; all the useless upgrades that were NEVER used just added content without depth or flavor, in other words...water. 2.0 right now feels distilled, like they boiled off a mass of steam and delivered a more concentrated flavorful version of the same game. How FFG manages adding content will determine if we return to a watered down version again. To extend the food metaphor, I think FFG is aiming for a 'Food Court' style of management for X-Wing; solid number of themed factions with flavorful options for most tastes. As of right now however, X-Wing seems anything other than watered down.
