  1. Looks like the release date for Wave 6 + card packs was updated on the upcoming page yesterday. These will be released on January 31, 2020. That means unless there is special dispensation, they will not be legal for the UK or Fort Worth System Opens running on February 7-9. There is a part of me that wonders if the release date is intentional: to get some data in on the points changes prior to the release of new content.
  2. Pretty much any talent that modified dice is out of the HS format. The major exceptions being Intimidation and Outmaneuver.
  3. It is a matter of legitimacy. The new release timeline was initially posted on a discord server and then relayed here where it was met with healthy skepticism as it was second-hand information. It is the difference between, "I heard FFG said that..." and "FFG Official Account Announcement:..." Having information coming directly from an official source rather than second hand makes it legitimate from the start and much less likely to be questioned.
  4. Someone must not have been around for the degeneracy of TLT Ghost w/ Maul, Ezra and Fenn Sheathipede. I was an unskilled player and that list was too easy to fly and win with.
  5. Don't forget that we also don't have Thermal Detonators either. Sometimes I miss the guaranteed stress.
  6. Update: The two black box versions of Saw's Renegades and the TIE Reaper have been removed from the "Upcoming Products" page and all traces of their existence have been removed from the articles. It would be nice to see the first edition variants show up in the Second Edition products page under their respective faction drop-down so that newcomers know they contain legal 2.0 product. Another thing I noticed when looking at the "Upcoming Products" page is that every expansion that has currently been released (Ghost, Inquisitor's TIE, Punishing One, Nantex, BTL-B Y-Wing, M3-A), but is still showing some state other than "In Stores Now" has lost its pre-order button. C-ROC cruiser now has a Release Date of 11/15/19 just as was communicated previously.
  7. Please note that the products in question (Saw's Renegades and TIE Reaper expansion packs) now no longer appear under the 2.0 sets to be produced in the X-wing Second Edition main page. Previously, they were showing up as available for pre-order under their respective faction expansion drop downs. The packages still show up in the "Upcoming products" page, but now just give 404s when you click on their links. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/x-wing-second-edition/products/x-wing-second-editiontie-reaper-expansion-pack/ https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/x-wing-second-edition/products/x-wing-second-edition-saws-renegades-expansion-pack/ Doesn't seem like a troll to me. All the various links just haven't been cleaned up yet.
  8. What I've noticed with the IGs is that they throw an awful lot of dice on both offense and defense. Because of that, double calculate isn't great for them. Makes for really hard decisions (and thus lots of opportunity to make an incorrect decision) on whether to spend on offense or defense.
  9. Also something that looks similar to an MC75 below the VCX-100...
  10. Falcon with a round sensor dish? VCX-100 and U-wing at the 5s mark along with a hammerhead corvette? What is this new devilry?
  11. And now the article is removed... Interesting.
  12. Well, wave 6 fills in 2 of the skipped part numbers - Saw's Renegades is SWZ02 and the TIE Reaper is SWZ03 which goes to show that they had to scramble with additional 1.0 content for a while longer than they were planning to. The only skipped part numbers left are SWZ24, SWZ28 and SWZ54.

  14. My favorite TIE Salad didn't change a point so that makes me happy!
  15. https://youtu.be/zbkizy-Y3qw?t=101 Seeing this thread, I can't help but think of a Star Trek: TNG Episode - "The Royale"...
