  • X-wing is a game of skill+luck, not just a game of skill. This was Sunny’s opinion, and it also seems to be yours. But where Sunny says that X-wing is mostly skill, with an element of luck… you seem to be arguing that X-wing is mostly a game of luck, with an element of skill. [...] 50 minutes ago

    It’s a deep rabbit hole. You can also beat yourself with the need to do something unexpected and clever, when all you need to do that turn is avoid making a blunder. 10 hours, 48 minutes ago

  • Another option never to overlook — equalizing the board if you start out behind. I believe at least 2 factions have a board sweeping card, and if you don’t need to play that card it means you had a good start. It doesn’t hurt you much (or any) to hold that card in games where [...] 23 hours, 49 minutes ago

    The current entry count is 13. — 5 Rebel — 7 Imperial — 2 with no preference at all I am expecting a list from Paul and Kryzak, putting us at 15. I need at least a 16th entry, and then I am closing sign-up. If you were thinking of taking part, now is your [...] 1 day, 1 hour ago

    Just a heads up, I am adjusting the tournament a little to account for the much higher level of interest than I expected. We already have 11 official entries, and I know that at least 1 more entry is coming from Paul. Instead of sending 1 player from each side into the final battle, we [...] 2 days, 10 hours ago

    Biggs is not banned from Epic Play games. He has errata’d text for Epic Play — he can protect small or large ships, but not huge ships. You are allowed to field him. The crew card Navigator is banned from huge ships. I have banned the unreleased crew card Leebo as well. 2 days, 10 hours ago

    It’s starting to look pretty even. I’ll send you a PM on the 22nd or maybe on the morning of the 23rd with a player counter for each side, and you can decide then. Who is on what side is not info I will release until after sign-up is closed, although players are welcome to [...] 3 days, 17 hours ago

    The Recover action (restoring shields) also draws from the energy reserves. 3 days, 20 hours ago
  • Agreed. That was a very nice addition. Every time I watch this game I am more and more sure that Whisper was fortunate to survive; for the entire first half of the game she was in a lot of danger, and even her first rush to Dash’s Range 1 was mainly a stroke of luck [...] 3 days, 20 hours ago

    Your ship has an energy limit; for the Corvette it is 5 in reserve, and 1 once the aft section is destroyed. The fore section’s ability draws from this reserve. Important is that you can move energy to other cards, freeing your reserve to fill to 5 again. For example a Corvette with 3 Single [...] 3 days, 20 hours ago

    You did a good job out-guessing me for the longest time. There were so many turns where I avoided the block only to see no block attempt, and I all but lost one of my squints that way. If we ever played a similar fight I think it would be different. You have more experience [...] 3 days, 22 hours ago

    To answer the unasked question of what would prove turrets are taking over… if we are still seeing turrets win all the games in Wave 6 I’d say that would be proof. 3 days, 22 hours ago
