The dial for the Jumpmaster 5000 - the asymmetric dial is what im most looking forward to. I love the Ghost and crew, and the other stuff, but I desperately want to fly this ship with the assymetric dial.

I don't know why you're excited for it, it's not like it matters what direction it flies considering it's a turret.
no, it matters

even discounting Dengar, the only ship in the game that can fire 2ndary non-turrets 360 degrees is the Outrider

considering how punchy the ship will be with torps (and how flaccid it is with just a 2-dice PWT), facing will be essential

white segnors --> focus --> fully modded torps sounds fun as hell

otherwise I'd be complaining about it, instead of probably buying 2

I'd be fine with it if actually was limited to 2 attack dice and didn't have an auto include title that bumped it up to 3 dice. Just Like I'd be fine with Super Dash if he didn't have an autoinclude title that made his HLC a turret.

Me and you are pretty much the only ones excited to use the generics as ordnance boats, let's not kid ourselves. Everyone is going to run the **** thing with Dengar or another named pilot, Unhinged Astro and K4 or some other sort of broken combo and will just do 3 banks with it non-stop.

I'm less pissed about it than I was when I first saw it as I can just pound damage into it with TLT's. The thing I hate most about Super Dash is the hypermobility, if it's not blocked it has a pre-nerf phantom tier of mobility. The Jumpmaster is arguably even more hyper mobile than Dash. At least Dash couldn't Boost and barrel roll out of a ******* white 2 segnor's.

Do dials even ******* matter anymore? I'm astonished that people think that should all this fat Turretwing and general super ship meta disappear, we'd be left with a TERRIBLE meta dominated by BBBBZ type lists. That's how the game was intended to be played! That's how every ship in the game operates besides for the handful of top tier super ships and Y-Wings.

2 steps forward with large ship MoV nerf and TLT spam, 2 steps back with a Scum Hyper Dash.

Also, Nera can fire secondaries out of arc. :P

Are you alright? You sound a bit tense.

Considering how much I hate Super Dash, the idea of having to deal with a Super Dash that can also 2 white Sloop is too much for me. On one hand I'm pissed because that's blatantly game ruining, on the other it's not really any more obnoxious than the pre-existing game ruining power combos.

Yes, I'm tense. Probably not alright haha. Feeling sick and having to deliver mail sucks, especially when your route is too long.

The thing about me waving my defeatist pessimism boner around here is that it's not just X-Wing that I have this attitude about. It's my job too, and my relationship status. I'm used to starting off the day being given too much mail and just giving up mentally instead of stressing myself out. My time as a substitute mail carrier taught me that the better I worked and the harder I tried to get done with my route earlier, the more mail I'd be sent back out with. Now I'm full time on a route that's too long and I'm not going to speed run the route all day every day just to get back at a normal time. So I just accept that I'm doomed right off the bat and stop caring.

When I get off work and show up to play my favorite game, and setup my Patrol Leader with Gunner Vader and 4 Obsidians only to get stomped by Super Dash being buffed by Jan Ors to 5 dice or whatever other obnoxious combo that ignores the elements that make this game great, It pisses me off. This game played so elegantly when I first started playing it. When I would get beaten by 2 X-Wings and 2 HLC B-Wings because I was out flown, or Turr Phennir sliding in for a shot and then slipping by just barely. Now I lose games because my opponents won in the list building phase or I had no way to deal with an HLC turret that can large ship boost and barrel roll every turn and can ignore asteroids, or I bumped my opponent's super RAC and it still dumped 4 hits on me with his free target lock and free calculation upgrade.

 

You must be a blast at parties

an underlying failure to grok game design

Great, now I have to google a word.
Grok means 'drink' :-D

As a Heroscaper, I couldn't resist! Also explains why they're so bad; the dogs are drunk all the time! LOL.

I thought that was from the Verhoeven movie - the spinning that is.

Why is there all this whining about a lack of news when we have just gotten a TON of new releases?

It could take months to try out all the brand new toys we just got, experiment with lists, find out what we enjoy flying and what works now.

Let the meta shake itself out. I'd be perfectly happy to not have any news before the new year, to say nothing of any actual releases.

Play with the toys you have. Once those start getting stale, THEN is the time for new stuff.

Don't judge me, Forgottenlore. I strive to play every week with the new wave 7 toys and I'm having a blast.

You can't deny that news are incoming *if* wave 8 is to be released Q4 2015. There are about anything between 5 to 8 articles that have to be released before wave 8 hits and if you compute the frequency of their apparition, they are imminent!

edit- also, you may not know it, but I took charge of the X-Wing vassal module and it's filled with players like you, who want to wait for new ships, as well as people who want the new stuff ASAP. Who am I to deny them what they want? :D
