leaks?

Well, "leaks" in so far as the aforementioned podcast claimed that an FFG employee had told them at an event that Wave 8 was two weeks into testing.  So a "leak" in the sense that "hey, Wave 8 exists!"  It was a month or two ago, I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to dig the thread up on these boards about it.

@Drasnighta being a playtester would explain why he's been one of the very few who have retained an unflappable optimism about the future of the game... in fact, we could probably find the few perpetually optimistic folks on these boards and we'd have a good sense of the current playtesters, probably 🤣

Sooo... you're a playtester then?  Cool.  Can you confirm the alleged leaks about Wave 8 that were "reported" by [that Podcast we cannot mention on these boards]?  Hit us up in PM if needed!  :)

How about 'No'?

Is 'No' good for you?

Its good for me.

Let's go with 'No'.

I doubt Dras would be legally allowed to reveal anything. But it's nice to know that there are still stuff in development.

I would really like to hear about how an expansion is developed. Hoe playtesters may influence the final product, what aee the test8ng methods etc.

I see some saying that time will be an issue for playing the sector fleet formats.

My question is, where is ffg's very own official Taskforce Fleet format? :P

 

You had to be at FFGHQ on a game night to experience it.

But I can only imagine the hate that would be generated if it were posted online, since it was 50% Squads...

That's just the full Adar Tallon art. Quite a bit of art has random extra ships on (Slaved turrets having the DP20, the alt art Expanded Hanger Bay having a Bellator) - doesn't really mean anything other than that they've picked some art they like and it happens to have other ships on.

I may be missing something but I don't see a big ole starship (the Bellator is big, right?) on my copy of Expanded Hangar Bay. Did they update the card or am I missing it?
