X-wing 2.0 Ship Reviews!
First Up, the Wave 2 Scum ship, the Mining Guild TIE Fighter! 🔥
For the best part of many years, I have been joshing with my Imperial pals that all TIEs look the same. They are all black, all pointy, and are all fragile as a new born stick of butter.
So, trust Scum and Villainy faction to come to the rescue then with the best looking TIE model to date, the Mining Guild TIE fighter. These little things are bright yellow, and have a chunk cut out of each wing so they look like Pac-mans sci-fi-cousin, and are certainly unique.
The model itself is one of the better looking so far in X-Wing 2.0, with the paint job in particular being very nicely done. The ship has no moving parts, but the weathered look on the yellow ship stands out, as does the cockpit detail, and Mining Guild logo on the wings. 🔥
Gameplay wise, this flies just like most other TIE fighters. It's quick, going up to a 5 straight, but also nimble, with the under appreciated 1 Turns both present and a 3 K-Turn for quick 180 degree repositioning. TIE fighters have always been fragile and this is no exception, coming with no shields and only 3 Hull, if you get one maneuverer wrong and land in an enemy firing arc then this thing will light up quicker than toilet paper in a volcano. The one standout here though is the ship ability, Notched Stabilizers, which utilises the Mining Guilds asteroid expertise to completely ignore them during movement. This makes the ship a lot more versatile, and can open up way more repositioning moves in the middle of the board, as other ships need to be concerned with the pesky rocks, and this little thing just zips on past.
Overall I think the Mining Guild TIE is a good addition to the Scum faction, though it does irk me a little that one of the first releases in 2.0 - that also saw an increase in per unit price for ships - is one that the official release article heavily implied you want to buy about 5 of to have any fun with. However, for now I will be content flying it as a nice looking blocker and be happy it's on me shelf!

I literally have no clue how to word this post other than, I can’t do this anymore. I don’t normally let the loss of followers affect me because it’s something I’m used to, but this time it’s different. Most of my recent unfollowers are people I consider friends or those I’m good with? What the hell? I totally get my content is NOT for everyone but I try to cater to everyone. But with how bad the algorithm is I wouldn’t have thought the majority of people see my posts to be honest. I’ve not been very vocal about my personal struggles after being fucking ripped into last time for expressing my sadness. Doing that to someone is NOT okay at all under any circumstance. I’ve been dealing with some issues with my ‘friend’ group that’s completely divided people and it’s honestly ridiculous the reasons behind it. This year has been absolutely fucking awful for me and I have every right to be open about things that I’m dealing with. I fell into depression t the beginning of the year, suffered a horrid fucking breakup which I’m still dealing with, been hurt over by people who I saw myself being because they couldn’t be honest with me at the beginning of bings, and lied to by people I considered friends. I’m not able to say it even do anything without people picking fault it having something negative to say about me for literally ANYTHING I do, lewd or not. It’s draining me so much having to deal with this shit constantly. I’ve not been perfect in any of these situations but I admit that fair and square. But others around me are toxic enough to continue to cause me so much heart ache and pain. I’ve completely lost my trust in people after having it abused l, my souls been damaged and my feelings have been continuously hurt time and time again. I’ve learnt that SOME people are fucking horrible and some are not truthful with their honest. I literally have nothing else to say other than: Fuck. This. Shit.
