    JohnnyUK got a reaction from Tirion in UPDATE: We will NOT be getting CW on October 4th!   
    One? Apparently you've never met FFG before.  🤣
    Their release dates are notoriously bad.  I remember back in the day when I was playing x-wing 1st edition, they always used to have a new wave of ships announced ready for xmas - and then they always seemed to arrive in Jan/Feb... But I guess when everything's coming on a slow boat from China, and you have multiple customs to deal with, getting an accurate delivery time can be tricky... and even worse if you want a global release.

    FFG never officially released the statement. This came from one of the game designers.
    This is the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/swlegionffg/?ref=share
    The post is pinned.

    JohnnyUK got a reaction from Muelmuel in Isn't anyone else gobsmacked at the price of the new large ships?   
    As well as looking at the cost over time, you can also looks at it from the point of view of time spent on the hobby.
    We had a comment recently from one of the wives that £80 was a "stupid" amount of money for a board game.  ok, but the game takes an average of 4 hours for 4 players per play. And we've played the game at least 10 times so far.  So we've kept 4 adults entertained for 40+ hours for £80 (so 50p per adult per hour).
    How many hobbies / activities can you list that cost less than 50p per person per hour (or £2.00 per person for 4 hours of an evening)?  Cinema - £12+ per person... Pub - well beers are £4/each, so £16 for 4 people if you only have one beer each (hah!)... Most sports (for you) will have fees for using the court / field / track whatever... most sporting events cost £££'s to go and watch... seriously, what can you do for £2.00 these days?  
    And hey, when we get bored of it, it'll go on ebay and someone will buy for probably £60... So now it only cost us £20 to entertain 4 adults for 40+ hours.
    Of course with miniature games they keep releasing new stuff that you need to buy (good for them as it's a constant stream of cash, good for us as it stops the games getting stale and increases the usage we get out of the rest of the  fleet/army).  But even then, when you compare the cost for the amount of time you are entertained for it's still cheaper than a lot of other activities... 
    And if you explain it to the other half correctly, many of them will see it's cheaper and more palatable than some of the alternatives.  Would they prefer you were "playing spaceships" on the dining room table with your mates (where they can keep an eye on you) - or out drinking with the same mates down the pub (where you could be chatting up someone younger and hotter...)?  
    It's all about perspective... 😁
