  1. I envision a time when FFG releases a new upgrade kit at the start of each Hyperspace season. The kit comes with new pilots and new upgrade cards that will be legal for this Hyperspace season. You are right, it would have to be larger than a handful of cards to justify its existence. It would also definitely need to include new pilots to ensure a wider number of players buy the upgrade kit. I do not believe these would be huge money makers for FFG, rather they would be the easiest way for FFG to alter the meta for a season (above and beyond altering the points costs of cards).

  3. That is not a win, at all, for the consumer. You are still buying ships you do not need or want, they just happen to be in your faction (which, depending on how many of the re-released ship you already own could very well be doubly superfluous, compared to a new ship in a new faction). The real win would be for FFG to release a pack of cards that includes all new pilots and upgrade cards that are coming out in the wave.
  4. Yeah releasing at Adepticon, then releasing the kits to the wider public the following week would seem correct.
  5. If you put new cards in the re-released kits, then people are going to complain that they are buying a superfluous ship so they can get access to one or two new generic cards. There is no winning for FFG here. The best they can do is to stick to their guns and keep the re-released kits free-of-content. If people want a new upgrade cards, they can buy a single off of various auction sites, trade for it or buy the brand new ships.

    Wave 5 predictions!

    Spray the ship metallic silver, then put a glossy varnish on it.

    My bet: Rebels: A-Wing (re-release) Empire: Tie Defender (re-release) Scum: MA-3 Interceptor (re-release) Resistance: Resistance Bomber (re-release) First Order: First Order TIE Interceptor (new) Republic: LAAT (new) CIS: Maxillipede shuttle (new)
  8. My bet is that they will actually release Hyperspace Upgrade Packs filled with new Pilots and some Upgrades for whatever ships they want to be legal in the Hyperspace Format. Ideally, these packs would be released right before a new Hyperspace season begins.
  9. I went with a Vennie, L’ulo and Tallie list but it did not go well as I accidentally wound up losing a joust with my opponent (who was running 3 X-Wings and a HWK). I do not think the list was bad, per se, but I fell into a trap and was blown away. What are your guy's suggestions for battling Wedge with Outmaneuver? He was able to get behind my Resistance Bomber and strip away all my green dice (even at range 3). Even blocking him with an A-Wing, he was able to receive Focus Tokens from the HWK. The Star Fortress works really well when the enemy is in front of you but is pretty bad when the enemy is behind you. The lack of a K-Turn really hurts . I am not sure the A-Wings really pump out enough damage to adequately protect the Bomber if it gets in a bad situation...
  10. Looks like a fun list, I will see if I can pilot it tonight! Ohhhh! That is a fun combo! Definitely trying this one out tonight! Good to hear!

  12. Oh I forgot the VTG was reduced in price! Do you think it might be better to dump the idea of bombs all together? Switch out Edon Kappehl for Ben Teene, then take targeting synchronizer to help synergize with the A-Wing's missiles, then add in Fire Control System?

  13. I really like the Resistance A-Wing and I just bought a Resistance Bomber, so I figured it was time to set my Falcons and X-Wings to the side and play with my new toys. This is a list I have been thinking about running. I was wondering hat everyone's thoughts would be on this list.
