    I remember that TIE, but can't remember the name. Speaking of leagues, is anyone interested in another vassal league, or even "tournament"? It's been a very long time.

    How does a forum league or tournament work?

    IIRC, we used a virtual table top for the map and connect through that for the games.
    End of turn play by plays are posted so the rest of us can "watch" the games as they played out.

    The way it's worked in the past is that we get everyone who's interested into a big list, and assign games. You have 1 week to play your game and report back the results. Lots of people post screenshotted play-by-plays or commentary, but it's not required. Vassal and Tabletop Simulator are the electronic game tables of choice, and sometimes you even get spectators!

    We're super formal about everything, and require that you have your list set-in-stone no later than 5 minutes into the game. :D Lots of people use it as a chance to run stuff they generally wouldn't be able to in their local games, either because the local meta would crush it or because they don't have many local games.

    We play until everyone's played everyone else once, or we lose steam and people aren't able to play all their games.

    I think a few folks did turn by turn stuff like that, I seem to remember it being mostly to show off some crazy boards states or dice rolls. It all went through vassal, with the tournament managed through thread updates here and PMs with results of games.

    I recorded a small handful of games and put them on YouTube actually. They're a couple hours each, I think, but it may give an idea of what vassal used to look like. Last I checked, they updated the xwing module heavily to be much more user friendly.

    Basically what everyone else said. Picture a regular tournament in terms of organising matches, but played either on VASSAL (free, not so pretty) or Tabletop Simulator (Not free, prettier) with a week or so to set your own time due to timezones. You play your game, both players post results in the thread, and things get updated. I think the last league we tried had 2 weeks per game, and no pairings dictated, which led to it falling apart pretty quickly.

    I'm happy to try and organise if people are keen, and do the paperwork at this end. Mostly I want an excuse to play because I don't get to in real-life due to remoteness. The Internet is a wonderful thing. I guess awesome this post if you're keen, and if I get enough interest I'll start up a dedicated thread.

    Epic unveil for huge ships!



    There's a lot here, but I like the new tool. There's a new base! There is a new generic damage deck that is super cool!

    You know what would be fun? A Homeworld table top game. Not sure if I would want fighter level or armada level skirmishes. I think you could probably get away with both.

    I didn't know what 'need' actually was until I saw the CR90 Corellian Corvette in Crabbok's huge ship recap video.

    The huge ships are all really, really cool in person. They make great models to have out on your shelf, too!

    So points are out for the new ships, YASB is already updated. The tldr stolen from Reddit:
    Wave 5 releases become Hyperspace Legal also, along with Contraband Cybernetics?

    Nantex starts at 34, up to 54pts for Sun Fac, with most of them having dual talent slots

    Ensnare is 10/10/10/10/10/16/24 for I0-6

    Gravitic Deflection is 5

    Y-Wings start at 33 points, up to 60pts for Anakin. Ahsoka is 12pts.

    Precog is 3/3/3/4/7/10/13 for I0-6.

    Snap Shot is 7/8/9 for Small/Medium/Large.

    Targeting Computer is 3.

    Foresight is 4

    Sun Fac seems way over priced? There aren't other aces to pair him with for a small ship list and it doesn't feel like you could fit enough drones?

    I'm thinking there is room for a Y-Wing option in the "two Jedi and a ________" lists. It's tanky like an arc but instead of dealing damage it just ions the other ships providing consistent damage and setting spikes for Anakin? Maybe broadside.

    Precog seems good, I think it'll see some play. Snap shot seems borderline but I'd hedge my bets towards "too expensive."

    Targeting computer is good at that price and let's Soontir fit into Jendon lists very nicely. Be afraid.

    Ahsoka is 12. I think she's pretty playable.

    The Birmingham Barons were pretty high on Chopper on Anakin and for the price I think that's a good call. Anakin can stack the triggers so he gains the red evade first and remove it with his ability. I think it's arguable that the evade mitigates the same amount of damage as the r2 while also providing jam tokens afterwards. There's always the possibility that you spend the charge when you don't need the evade due to rolling well, but that's the same of basically any offensive modification, and it's way better to prevent the damage instead of losing a turn to Regen one.

    This is a bit weird. My store told me the X-wing Wave 5 ships I preordered (the new ones) are going to be available on Friday, but their website still has them marked as "on the boat" (and a metric TON of other product listed as shipping now).

    I will trust my store, of course, but I gotta wonder if someone screwed up updating the release lists.

    The Nantex is SOOOO TINY!

    Like holy shit!

    On the other hand, the Y-wing is super chonky and I love it.

    (Also FFG's upcoming page is super busted.)
