FurthestChunk: it's got a lot of kerning
Manae: @TXC2 (had to run off a sec to take care of something) Nah, not a happy defense. TCU ran out the clock and purposely took a safety to prevent Texas from getting the ball again
accountmadeforants: We got to experience it in real-time yesterday. The big upside is that Shruggie is no longer broken:
manfred909: I didn't even notice the font change
samwonk: There are bad fonts and this isn't one.
ChargingFerret: this timer thing is the first time ive seen it
NonUniqueGuy: It is going to take some getting used to.

Snowcookies: I hate those ppl
TheMerricat: @loadingreadyrun your audio is gone
Sarah_Serinde: accountmadeforants It seems like it's a squadrons problem, they worked with another game. But it's probably better for now to assume that Ian has tried various things and we're probably not going to get into it today

Laserbeaks_Fury: Squad LF U-Wing for Death Star Raid
SeismicLawns: C wing or bust
Radyin: It is the support class.
NonUniqueGuy: U Wing is from Rogue One, right?
RepublicCommando : @Sarah_Serinde Gotcha! That makes sense I ight try both and see which one works best
Mangledpixel: NonUniqueGuy correct
TheMerricat: what's your control scheme matt?

red_shoes_jeff: DED
FurthestChunk: but some AI are Good
Perivale: Apparently it's amazing in VR
SeismicLawns: it is in fact an ai match
Anexmedia: I mean bouncing off the hull had a non-zero amount to do with that
accountmadeforants: So some AI are Ace-I? OpieOP
TheBehemothBarn: How are the Controls for the game?
Eklinaar: @Decaped It's really not Star Fox at all, it's a mix of old and new Star Wars, takes a lot of notes from X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, has some more modern game progression design like dailies to earn currency to unlock different ship parts.
Laserbeaks_Fury: DANGER ZONE!
Mangledpixel: I'm loving these AI names
Perivale: and everywhere in canada is out of flight sticks

Rogue_07: I have no desire to be the bad guys.
DesperadoZod: This is giving me HEAVY FreeSpace 2 nostalgia
manfred909: yes you do Rogue_07 in fact you start as Imps
DaMullet14: I had to dip early from Tiltyhouse, did we get the joystick working?
Nuurgle: I believe so, but you're fighting against even worse guys
Eklinaar: @Rogue_07 Yes, the campaign swaps you back and forth between playing an Imperial pilot and a Republic pilot. You must play as both to progress, there's no option to choose.
Rogue_07: Thanks, folks. Not sure if I'm gonna get this game then.
Eklinaar: @Rogue_07 The campaign is only 8 hours long, as well.
Izandai: I don't think you have to do the single player content before you can jump into multiplayer.

Rogue_07: Honestly, I'm not super-interested in the multiplayer.
Lysander_Gustav: Oh, is this multiplayer?
TXC2: Hello Lysander_Gustav welcome
Izandai: Fair enough.
Dragonality: @Izandai I think you have to do the opening mission for basic controls, but that's it
Nuurgle: you can definitely jump right into MP, you just will have to learn the controls on the fly
Shemerson: yeah the only thing you have to do is the prologue to get to the multiplayer
RothonWylar: hello mr horner
manfred909: Ian leads in a broken X-Wing
Eklinaar: @Rogue_07 Yeah it's primarily a multiplayer game. There's only 8 hours of single player content.
Karfsma778: Did your corpse slamming into the star destroyer do damage?

Manae: @TXC2 Depends on how you think of it. Shields aren't a monolithic thing, so collapsing them locally shouldn't be impossible for a fighter. Plus, do enough damage to subsystems and you get cascading failure
Radyin: @melikesmallmatters I am watching on my PS4.
TXC2: Manae fair points

Shemerson: @robo__nixon more in depth than that part buts similar
TheMerricat: eonderif
TheMerricat: Wonder if you can give commands to the AI squad members
MWGNZ: jamieOopsie
yellow_leadbelly: Im onps4
Dragonality: Ian please
codatski: Yeah... Ian is sorta feeding them too lol
MeLikeSmallMatters: @radyin welp, not there for me, I think I'll put in some ear plugs and take this out for a walk on my Phone

Koshindan: The respawn feels too quick.
JadedCynic: welcome to MP lrrAWW
robo__nixon: @Shemerson Ok. Not sure what the feeding reference means
WampaX: do the controls work like ye old xwing where you can control Engine/weapons/shields power levels and shield direction (double front/double aft) ?
KaminaDuck: Hi friends! I'm a little late to the dance. What did I miss?
JadedCynic: @robo__nixon 'feeding' just dumbly attacking and getting killed quickly
TXC2: Hello KaminaDuck welcome
creepywaffleco: Hey chat I just got here! Is oak playing with others or alone?
Sleepeey: I want this game sooooo bad
Lithobraker: Does the game use the full 3 dimensions, or is it mostly constrained to a specific plane?
creepywaffleco: *ian
MeLikeSmallMatters: wait is that Matt Wiggins?
Radyin: @melikesmallmatters Sorry to hear that. Enjoy your walk.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Feeding is from multiplayer team games like DotA, where players kill each other for experience.
TheTekkieman: That is Wiggins, yes.
TXC2: MeLikeSmallMatters sure is
DaSunao: lrrFRUMP lrrIAN lrrCAMERON
JadedCynic: Matt, Ian & Cam + two randos who don't seem to be working on any sort of strategy
MeLikeSmallMatters: Great! I've been able to recognize that voice because of the 007 podcast lol
SFSMaus: !game
LRRbot: Currently playing: Star Wars: Squadrons
KaminaDuck: Good lord this is gorgeous
theneatestburrito: The Bond rewatch podcast has been a lot of fun to listen to.
Fu4ow: I wouldn’t mind just quitting and jumping into MP
ChargingFerret: do collisions deal damage?
Fu4ow: “squints”
TheMerricat: @loadingreadyrun appearently there is a ping system you can use to command the ai members tell them to defend your capital ships instead of attack ing
JadedCynic: @Fu4ow this is 'co-op' MP
JadedCynic: are they AI or just other players?
MeLikeSmallMatters: @theneatestburrito and now they can stretch it out until next year since they pushed the movie back again right?
JadedCynic: the remaining 2 of the rebel pilots
Magnifisquatch screams in TIE fighter
Radyin: Does Ian remember that he has missiles?
Izandai: Yeah, that's a Matt strategy alright.
shendaras: I've read other people's reactions, and they think it's quite pretty but that the controls aren't super and the UI is a little too large. Apparently it's good in VR
robo__nixon: I wonder what the "Wiggins Maneuver" would be?
JadedCynic: yeah, that IS a legit strat, but it's NOT easy
Pal_Friendpatine: Does Ian’s X-Wing have missiles?
Shemerson: the VR is very cool
JadedCynic: so again, usual EA results
theneatestburrito: Oh have they, @MeLikeSmallMatters ?
Radyin: Yes, he has 6 missiles.
eDRoaCH: co-op or vs?
MeLikeSmallMatters: I clicked some news thing said it was pushed to April next year @theneatestburrito
TXC2: eDRoaCH this is Co-op
Shemerson: although it really weird that the mouse controls you can invert y but not X axis for some reason
7gorobei: the morale meter up top indicates when you can attack the capital ship. if it is red you have to defend your ships. when it is white you can attack the star destroyer
eDRoaCH: thx txc
JadedCynic: we're not sure if the named TIEs are AI or ppl, likely the former, but it's not 100% certain
Pal_Friendpatine: Cool thanks @radyin
creepywaffleco: Have they played as empire yet?
Fu4ow: Star Wars got kinda lucky with Covid not having any movies in production
TXC2: named TIEs are most likely AI

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, DarkMorford! (Today's storm count: 28)
TXC2: creepywaffleco this is the first game
7gorobei: if you attack without the morale meter, the capital ships just swat you in an instant
DesperadoZod: That Corvette got erased!
Radyin: All Imperial ships in this match are AI.
Koshindan: Do a barrel roll!
creepywaffleco: So happy came playing y-wing. I honestly like y wings better than x wings
JadedCynic: it's not dead yet, @DesperadoZod
creepywaffleco: *cam
Karfsma778: Blew the hell out of their targeting
JadedCynic: now it is

RothonWylar: I'd suggest trying to take out the targeting bridge first if you can
codatski: Hey Ian, if your morale is low, running the Destroyer will do basically nothing for you
MeLikeSmallMatters: ah I see, then I won't hold my breath hehe @fu4ow
JadedCynic: this looks like it's just so tiring
JadedCynic: ion cannon :P
DesperadoZod: The respawn time for the named TIEs seems to be instant, and they lock on immediately
Izandai: That bar's got an awful lot of red on it.
Fu4ow: Yeah, not the best impression of mission design
JadedCynic: the AI is spawn camping?
TXC2: oof
DesperadoZod: AI spawn camping, woooooow
JadedCynic: yay, great design EA
robo__nixon: That bot No Scoped
itomeshi: Spawn camping: a successful strategy.
Fu4ow: Does Star Wars not use the term “sortie”?
JadedCynic: Not in the X-Wing or TIE fighter games @Fu4ow
TXC2: wow this fight turned around REAL fast :p
robo__nixon: I'd have to check the Rogue Squadron books
gravity_pike: there's no wind in space!
DesperadoZod: A-Wing is real good, Bront
JadedCynic: this isn't space - it's the upper atmo of a gas giant
JadedCynic: see the clouds?
Mangledpixel: he meant victory foir the enemy
Karfsma778: Y-wing?
RothonWylar: a WING
StarFreak359: *A-Wing
TheFryWalker: A-wing
Lysander_Gustav: don't worry about it
Karfsma778: Aren't you in an A wing
MeLikeSmallMatters: thst just a wing
SeismicLawns: er, A-wing
ChargingFerret: A wing
johkmil: “Victory is moments away — we lost shields!”
robo__nixon: Any B wings in this game?
Radyin: Narrator: He was in an A wing.
Lysander_Gustav: It's okay, he knows
Lord_ZYRK: An-Wing
MeLikeSmallMatters: ramming speed v
JadedCynic: not yet @robo__nixon I wager it'll be paid DLC
Rogue_07: The Arvel Crynid maneuver!
Pal_Friendpatine: Mmm target fixation
Fu4ow: Left blue bar is shield?
Rogue_07: Ramming a Star Destroyer with an A-Wing
Lysander_Gustav: yay
ameliette: well didnt *quite* replicate that one a-wing stunt from rotj :p
robo__nixon: @JadedCynic Ugh. Sadly I believe you
Anexmedia: Body slam, an advanced dogfighting tactic
StarFreak359: Nice Arvel Crnyd impression :-P
Izandai: PorscheWIN
johkmil: Try to ram it again!
SnackPak_: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
DesperadoZod: Now I REALLY want to map the controls to Numpad and fly that way
itomeshi: See, the admiral was right!
TheAinMAP: Well, ramming Star Destroyers with A-wings should be a valid tactic.
ChargingFerret: lrrHORN ?
RothonWylar: wHEW
manfred909: elfunkDab elfunkDab elfunkDab
BusTed: slytqShrug
TXC2: "we won?"
Perivale: lrrFINE lrrFINE lrrFINE

Rogue_07: benginDab benginDab benginDab
Mangledpixel: take that, Jem Blessage!
JadedCynic: so yay, the MC75's ordinance was enough to outdo the ISD in the end...
TacitusVigil: Our first catch of the day!
johkmil: A wings have spikes for a reason
Radyin: Ian, honest question. Does your joystick have the missiles mapped to the correct button? I don’t think you fired a single one.
TheAinMAP: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
robo__nixon: Space Dab
TXC2: TacitusVigil "pfft like you know how to fish" Kappa
Orlantia: @loadingreadyrun Ian, your voice very soft soft compared to Cam and Matt
Lysander_Gustav: I hope you're able to unlock some cool characters
TacitusVigil: @TXC2 :P
drumshark13: would ya'll recommend this game?
FurthestChunk: I would super recommend this game, if you're down for flight sims
Lysander_Gustav: It's a little annoying how some of the aliens are locked out
JadedCynic: (in other words; the game will save you with a Deus Ex Machina from the merciless mission design and AI capability
RothonWylar: do you liek fighting starships if yes then this game will be fun
DesperadoZod: The fomo is real right now >,< Gotta finish homework before going out to get Steam bucks
JadedCynic: @Lysander_Gustav we know the publisher extols the Empire's principles
Orlantia: still very soft
robo__nixon: Is this music warbeling on purpose?
Shemerson: I feel like if you played and liked the old Tie-fighter/X-wing series

TheFryWalker: anyone VRing on this stream?
JadedCynic: @Shemerson tbh, I'd played them all, and I'm not really enthused by what I'm seeing
robo__nixon: X Wing is super flexible. Always doing splits lrrBEEJ
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: How are you guys enjoying squadrons so far? I'm having tons of fun with it myself
TheManaLeek: I've been loving this game so far.
lawful_neutral_wizard: How many different star fighters are there?
RothonWylar: whelp gl guys gonna go play this myself
JadedCynic: oh MAN!
TacitusVigil: I remember Ian's VR streams. ;)
TXC2: yes the most vital part of a VR set :p
Lysander_Gustav: There are four types of fighters for each side.
Critterbot: Oh! Yeah, gotta have those.
Koshindan: Fake greenscreened googly eyes that follow the camera.
DesperadoZod: Asteroids! Collision imminent!
Phrawger: @lawful_neutral_wizard 4 per side; awing xwing ywing and uwing for rebs; tie, int, bomber, and a support ship for the imps
JadedCynic: Ian I am SO mailing you a pack of googly eyes for this very purpose! :D
Orlantia: @loadingreadyrun perhaps the other's are loud, instead of you being soft
FurthestChunk: god, I hate the asteroid field map
FurthestChunk: I am very good at hitting rocks with my face
DesperadoZod: Or are those pieces of Planet?
robo__nixon: Vanguard Five. Still alive.
StarFreak359: They'd be crazy to follow us, wouldn't they?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: but ian, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1!
TXC2: Jebaited even
KingXicor: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx Never tell Ian the odds!
StarFreak359: This looks /dense/.
JadedCynic: so is BabelLibrarian a pug player or an AI filling out the flight?
Koshindan: Looks like a freshly cracked planet.
codatski: I love Star Wars making their asteroid fields so dense lol. It is comically unrealistic, but hey, makes for good movie moments
JadedCynic: I forsee a LOT of pancakes
Lord_ZYRK: Phrawger the Imp support is the Reaper
Phrawger: ah thank you
JadedCynic: @Koshindan I concur
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @JadedCynic I think thats cam
Lord_ZYRK: BloodTrail
Eklinaar: If you can't get farm fresh cracked planet, storebought is fine.
TXC2: codatski to be fair, it's what most people think an asteroid field would be like
Koshindan: Fire the healing laser!
oyleslyck: jinxed it
Dog_of_Myth gifted a Tier 1 sub to Lord_ZYRK! They have given 569 Gift Subs in the channel!

codatski: @TXC2 I know lol But in reality they are usually hundreds of miles apart. SUPER dangerous to traverse lol
Lord_ZYRK: Aw heck, thanks Dog_of_Myth PridePog
TXC2: that had some real "i'm genius...oh no" energy
Dragonality: Land ho
Dog_of_Myth: @Lord_ZYRK Your quite welcome.
DesperadoZod: What point in the SW timeline does this game take place in?
TXC2: DesperadoZod after Yavin apparently
Fu4ow: uhhh... after Rogue One at least
Lysander_Gustav: This takes place just a little while after Return of the Jedi
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @DesperadoZod post orignial trilogy pre new trilogy I think
usmu1976: late to the party: what am I looking at? is this pvp?
Izandai: @DesperadoZod About 4 years after Alderon goes kablooey.
JadedCynic: Sorry Ian, but... comedic opportunity
ellieodaire: whoa
DesperadoZod: Oooo! That's a good time, awesome
TXC2: usmu1976 I think this is PvP yes
DesperadoZod: Thanks, fam!
Izandai: np
johkmil: Launch every ‘zig!
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @LoadingReadyRun you have to be in full power to engines to build boost unless you have slam engines
TheFryWalker: radar seems to be picking up a Ford Mustang
StarFreak359: "New Republic" indicates post-Battle of Endor
Lord_ZYRK: You better have some words with the technician that did preflight on your ship, Ian Kappa
Lysander_Gustav: There is a prologue that takes place during New Hope, but it jumps ahead to after Return of the Jedi in the game proper
BusTed: rancor selves

Lysander_Gustav: oh that reaper looks kind of cool
DesperadoZod: Mei Lin, new Empire ace?
JadedCynic: @ChargingFerret yeah...that are still pretty strong without their leadership

JadedCynic: and the raider taken out!
Dragonality: Cleric doing work
Koshindan: I thought the Jedi were the space priests...
JadedCynic: seems like close-in coop tactics are essential for this
TXC2: Ian is more of a Bard then a Cleric Kappa
Dragonality: @TXC2 Got me there
Fu4ow: the jedi didn't learn healing magic for a while...
Izandai: But he's more of an artificer than abard.
txzen_: he's a card 8)
Izandai: *a bard
Earthenone: is this microsoft flight sim 2121?
DesperadoZod: Teamwork this game is awesome
Dragonality: You get inspiration, and YOU get inspiration
TXC2: "great shooting kid, don't get penis-y"
Izandai: no
txzen_: who is babel librarian ? internet rando?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @TXC2 LUL
Lysander_Gustav: yeah there's randoms being played with in the team too
StarFreak359: @txzen_ Cameron
johkmil: Mai-Lin the Reaper. The most feared imperial ace in the sector
gravity_pike: so ian is currently a space priest?
accountmadeforants: Kor Korli feels like the kinda name they'd give a throwaway Kor character in an MTG sitcom.
DesperadoZod: "I heard Mei Lin was considered for Vader's personal squadron..." Hushed rumours around astro-droid
frnknstn: Does this game do the thing where you have to play a bunch before they let you use the good gear?
Pal_Friendpatine: Ian needs a resupply
Fantusta: why is LRR playing as rebel scum?
JadedCynic: IIRC Cam is "BabelLibrarian", are we 100% the other two rebel pilots are AI or pug humans?
Izandai: @DesperadoZod "And she's still pissed she didn't get in."
JadedCynic: @Fantusta because they like being on the side of RIGHT? ;)
Koshindan: Matt is pretty good at dodging the turbolasers.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: I just found out you can shoot down enemy missiles and its extremely cool
espi: Ian's check engine light just keeps flashing
Wolfstrike_NL: Time to resupply on resupplies
brainbosh: What is Ian piloting?
DesperadoZod: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx Whelp, I was on the fence and now I'm sold!
JadedCynic: U-Wing
ChargingFerret: having cover helps... makes sense
Swamplor: Right now is also the longest I've been alive.
JadedCynic: support vessel (shoots 'aid')
TheWanderingNomad: Use the Fooooorce Ian
MehallD: James must be, like, *A* stream away from buying ice cream at this point
TXC2: wait so a U-wing is just a U-haul ambulance? :p
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @DesperadoZod yeah I did a 180 with a drift in the practice mode saw it coming at me and lasered it out of the sky
JadedCynic: give the Y's more torps to kill big things
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: it felt extremely good
frnknstn: But doctor, this IS the Pagliachi-class cruiser
johkmil: Jem Blessage took out a corvette and one of the players. Truly a frightening pilot.
TXC2: MehallD maybe 2
DesperadoZod: HSWP @xXRealGamerThaigeXx
Izandai: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx Fucking sweet.
ChargingFerret: I have difficulties believing that you Could actually hear the sounds of space fighting, but it adds to atmosphere.
Izandai: @ChargingFerret The ships have built-in sound systems that make all the noises.
DesperadoZod: @ChargingFerret I would believe that sci-fi AI simulates the sounds for pilot awareness benefits :P Even if no one mentions that being a tech
Fu4ow: @DesperadoZod that is a thing in legends at least
Izandai: @DesperadoZod It's actually explicitly mentioned in the novelization for A New Hope (I think).
JadedCynic: @ChargingFerret I like Star Citizen's justifcation - the ship's sensors pick up all his stuff and simulate the sound of explosions, shots, engines, etc to aid in 'situational awareness'
ArkhamArchivist: sound may not travel through a vacuum, but what about the Interstellar Ether?
StarFreak359: Y-Wing = Centaurian mud pig
Creideiki_SE: Extremely sci-fi - generates sound for situational awareness but doesn't allow the pilot to turn their head.
DesperadoZod: :O I didn't know that!
TXC2: we also seem to be in the atomsphere of a broken planet
ChargingFerret: do they also add soundtracks to the fights?
DesperadoZod: @Izandai Very cool!
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Creideiki_SE their actually is a free look button
kalira77: well heck, car companies do pretty much that same thing IRL with door closing noises these days, so i could def see it being a thing in sci fi
TheWanderingNomad: I wonder if the Redemption Scenario is available in gmae...
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod Cloud Imperium Games made it explicit with their forever-in-development Star Citizen mmo :D
Lithobraker: ChargingFerret Alternatively the radio interference from plasma blasts strong enough to blow up ships make the sounds on the pilot coms systems.
ChargingFerret: and some electric cars have simulated engine noise, to help people outside of the car to know where it is
Pal_Friendpatine: Now I’m starting to like the look of this game. This map really makes a difference in the overall play quality
StarFreak359: 15% hull ... That's normal for an A-Wing, right?
Fu4ow: what's the blue meter to the left?
TXC2: Star Citizen is not a game, it's a ponzi scheme :p
Lord_ZYRK: Andrew pog
StarFreak359: @Fu4ow throttle
DesperadoZod: Andrew!
greatwahooney: Does this game include the Kobayashi Maru?
TXC2: Hello Andrew
JadedCynic: I mean, yeah - I drive my car IRL and I have a minimap; there's no justification for not having it in a game set 'contemporarily'
FurthestChunk: hello Very Quiet Andrew
TheWanderingNomad: OH I thought that was me fo ra second
StarFreak359: I think
KaminaDuck: Hi Andrew!
EscherichiaCole: @LoadingReadyRun do you want a fifth?
JadedCynic: ah good, the more the merrier - a larger group, the more coordination you can get
BusTed: Heeey andrew
frnknstn: The LRR-wing grows!
Pal_Friendpatine: Crossplay?
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic A game I bought into and never expect to actually play xD
Fantusta: I'm playing with a squad of at least 4 IRL friends tonight I'm so excited
Lord_ZYRK: Andrew "Rando Quality" Ferguson
Fu4ow: @Pal_Friendpatine yep
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Pal_Friendpatine yeah theres crossplay between all playforms i believe
StarFreak359: It's the tenth one, so Andrew goes to space?
JadedCynic: Hey, it's playable - buggy as hell, but there's even a game's worth of content in it
Snowcookies: Andrew, only one step above a rando lrrBEEJ
johkmil: Rando Quality is a very Star Wars name
Pal_Friendpatine: Cool. Thanks @fu4ow @xxrealgamerthaigexx !
Fu4ow: yeah what's the least cover attack vector?
FloydOfSmeg: He may not fly well but he gets the best screenshots
TheWanderingNomad: No Ian, your suppose to ram the bridge!
raven534: nah, they beached the friggin fuckate
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: A-wing time
Izandai: whoa
Dread_Pirate_Westley: @TheWanderingNomad That only works on Executor class SD's.
Swamplor: Is morale an actual game mechanic or is Cam just saying?
JadedCynic: Cam - now you know what those RAF pilots felt like during the Battle of Britain :D
Lord_ZYRK: Swamplor game mechanic
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic I played in the first major Alpha test, am now waiting for the Single Player at least to play again
Fu4ow: hahah maybe after JOTJ they fixed that design flaw
JadedCynic: @Swamplor it's the white/red bar at the top
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: the destroyer is pretty close to dead
Swamplor: @JadedCynic Ah, I thought that was like where the fighters were engaging between the capital ships
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod Squadron 42? Yeah, me too - my pc is too old even with an ssd and 32gb of DD3 ram to play the unoptimized game reliably
Lord_ZYRK: Frieeends lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: literally same
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: origin is the only place where Ive had my username be taken before
Dog_of_Myth: Name squatters
DesperadoZod: Got a whole plan for Squad 42 and Star Citizen proper, going to be ex-military and train into wormhole exploration @JadedCynic
JadedCynic: @Swamplor it seems like it's a 'relative kill count' to determine 'the tide of the battle'
Earthenone: yeah, as someone with a unique username i use on everything, i feel personally attacked when it is taken
TheWanderingNomad: Your sacrifice will be remember Wiggins o7
carpeamentum: I was so sad my system was too old to play this.... I will have to wait until I can finally get my fingers on a gtx 3080... and then the new pc will breathe to life to join the fray.... soooooon
Earthenone: arent all the players on your side?
StarFreak359: @Earthenone same
wedge_x: I can’t imagine why I can’t get my username on Origin
TXC2: Earthenone big mood
raven534: yeah...
carpeamentum: @wedge_x but can you get wedge_xxx ?
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
DesperadoZod: Between this, Genshin Impact, and school... this is gonna be a fun semester :P
greatwahooney: Why is the game telling us to kill Cam?
DesperadoZod: Many distractions
wedge_x: lol
StarFreak359: Pwr management
KingXicor: MISSILE!
Reduce_Sanity: Ian youve turned off your targetting computer! Whats wrong?!?
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod similar - Star Citizen story roughly assumes players are UEE vets, and I'm champing at the bit to explore....but they ALMOST had the first system finished and ready to set jump points for Pryo (the second system) but it's been pushed back to 2021...
carpeamentum: @wedge_x all else fails you could go 1990s with xxx_wedge_xxx
txzen_: when tie fighters aren't as expendable as advertised
kerbalized_: does this have power management like Elite Dangerous?
carpeamentum: sorry, make that xXx_wedge_xXx
Creideiki_SE: I just noticed the X-wing cockpit has Nixie tube numerals. While a cool visual, it seems a bit impractical.
JadedCynic: Oh yeah, Weaps, Shields, Engines triangle
Izandai: @kerbalized_ You can redirect power between guns, thrusters, and shields.
Mangledpixel: kerbalized_ yep, those blue red and green bars are power levels
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic Oooo, that is exciting news! I'd expect a lot of things to be delayed to 2021
Swamplor: What control setup are people using for this?
FurthestChunk: Man, I wish you could turn off your targeting computer in this
Izandai: @kerbalized_ But I don't think it's as granulated as Elite.
brainbosh: I have never seen a TIE fighter that was SUCH a bullet sponge
TXC2: Swamplor Ian is useing a joystick and keyboard
kerbalized_: ah, thank yall!
Fu4ow: @FurthestChunk you can, useful for firing missiles without a lock
DesperadoZod: Odds are by the time Squad 42 and Star Citizen comes out I'll have a job that enables me buying a whole setup to play :P @JadedCynic
TXC2: wow what a bug
FurthestChunk: wait what
ChargingFerret: wow
FurthestChunk: okay now to hunt down that setting so i can dumbfire missiles on accident directly into my own capital ship
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod even with the delays, it seemed like they were on course for finishing the 1st system for October/November...but they've got a gas giant with floating bases/factories on it we're to interact with, and they're having trouble getting the gas & cloud simulation right (think of flying through a nebula, tho)
StarFreak359: Torpedos!
Wolfstrike_NL: Full crew!
TXC2: Hello Ashton
DesperadoZod: Full squad!
Earthenone: full squad hype
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: 5 stack PogChamp
Earthenone: !dbcountdown
LRRbot: Desert Bus for Hope will begin at Fri 13 Nov 10:00 AM PST (40d, 20:44 from now)
ChargingFerret: full squad hype
TacitusVigil: Beej Squadron now at Full Strength
JadedCynic: ooo, if we can get a full flight out there - better performance
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic That sounds rough to simulate, hope it works out well enough
Lord_ZYRK: Ashton pog
Dog_of_Myth: Full Squad Hype!!!
Fu4ow: just me or are you intended to use power balancing for closing distance?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: let go
Izandai: noice
Officinalis: The morale meter is a fickle mistress.
DesperadoZod: Stonks!
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod maybe they should try to get some advice from EA? ;)
StarFreak359: The force was with us!
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: LUL
Koshindan: So is red or white good for the bar?
TheAinMAP: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
Mangledpixel: Koshindan bad, but they won anyway
Earthenone: 2 squres and 200 stars!
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: the thing where the whole squadron does the "standing by" thing at the start of a match is a small detail but it makes me unreasonably happy
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod another game that should come out sooner is Everspace 2 - and they seem to have some GLORIOUS 'cloud tech' in their updates
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic Kappa
TXC2: Koshindan I preseume red is bad
Fu4ow: I wanna see your paint jobs
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic I've been keeping tabs on that, there is a nice resurgence of space fighter sims this decade. I've waited 25 years for this
StarFreak359 stands by
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
Earthenone: if you are at home, do not sit tight, the whole point of these breaks is to not do that
Mangledpixel breaks time
Lysander_Gustav: Yay break! Take some time to stretch out!
NotCainNorAbel: !icream
LRRbot: James in his hubris has challenged chat to give 10 million channel points so he'll go get Ice cream for the rest of LRR! You can contribute up to 2000 points per stream (you'll need to refresh between streams) so get cracking!
Izandai: God I wish my computer was powerful enough to run Elite Dangerous not-shittily.

Izandai: That game is so cool and I haven't touched it in years because my computer sucks.
JadedCynic: @DesperadoZod if you want something to tide you over waiting for Sq42, Everspace 2 seems like it'll scratch that itch - wanted to like the first, but the roguelike "you HAVE to die a lot to progress" just is ABHORRENT to my arcade-honed skills - death means I give up my turn to the next guy with a quarter ;)
Kerrisis: So, is this just an X-Wing vs Tie Fighter revamp wih EA's levelling and microtransaction BS bolted on, or am I misreading what I'm sein?
Kerrisis: *seeing
DesperadoZod: @JadedCynic My one problem is that FreeSpace 2 conditioned me to want to play with only Keyboard using NumPad as directionals :P
Eklinaar: @Kerrisis No that seems pretty accurate though I'm not sure if there are microtransactions, it might just be grinding the in-game currency.
accountmadeforants: Oh dang, Everspace 2 is coming out soon? That'll be nice.
Dread_Pirate_Westley: I think I read that there are no microtransactions in this.
JadedCynic: @Kerrisis better gfx, but yeah...wondering how shallow "Story" mode is...I do still feel the tug of John Williams-derived soundtrack...but MP? ugh
Kerrisis: @Eklinaar This is EA, give them time. :P
Eklinaar: Also the campaign is not coop and is quite short, which makes me sad, since XvT had a campaign of dozens of hours that was 100% coop-enabled.
Izandai: @JadedCynic Apparently the story mode is only about 8 hours long.
Earthenone: if they have multiple types of currency, microtransactions were probboly involved in the production of the game, even if they were removed for PR later
Izandai: This is designed as a primarily multiplayer experience.
DesperadoZod: Everspace 2 is being advertized as Early Access for Dec2020... oooo
accountmadeforants: The lack of co-op is really unfortunate, but I can't be the only one who generally prefers shorter story modes.
JadedCynic: @Kerrisis yeah, I'm expecting paid DLC of things like B-Wings, etc. and other races for your pilot, etc down the road
Eklinaar: Yeah JoeKim played the entire campaign on stream and it only took him 8 hours to beat it.
JadedCynic: @accountmadeforants um, what? You were just watching Ian, Cam & Matt playing co-op against AIs in a scripted campaign
DesperadoZod: Just give me a desperate mission to evacuate a star system under heavy enemy assault before a star is artifically supernova'd and I'll love the devs of whichever game forever
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: I mean an 8 hour campaign is still a pretty good length for a primarily multiplayer focused game especially when its not even full AAA price
creepywaffleco: Hey chat, how have they been doing?
Kerrisis: @JadedCynic ...and "special" pilots like Vader, Skywalker, etc.
Eklinaar: @JadedCynic That wasn't a campaign, that was just multiplayer with bots on one side.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @creepywaffleco they're doing ai battles till level 5 so they can do player fleet battles
JadedCynic: @accountmadeforants also, that stance of 'I want LESS content' doesn't make ANY sense?

JadedCynic: @accountmadeforants I mean, I LOATHE multi-player, but I won't DEMAND it's NOT included in a game, I just *don't*play*it* O_o
Kerrisis: It's good to know I can bypass this one without it paining me. Entertaining to se the LRRsmen playing it though. :)
DesperadoZod: Am also pretty happy that EA is working with Steam now... that's a nice incentive to get back into their games
MrTheWalrus: I wish 'designed primarily as a multiplayer (competitive) experience' was a little less universal in game design.
DesperadoZod: Alrighty, chat, gotta get back to doing homework and not be distracted by space bois. Have good pew pews
codatski: @DesperadoZod The entire EA access catalogue is being added to Xbox Game Pass in November. I'm stoked for that
JadedCynic: @MrTheWalrus agreed, because it's a lie that 'multiplayer means longer revenue stream' - player bases ebb and flow - interest dries up over time and the servers are empty before you know it
TXC2: so long DesperadoZod stay safe
JadedCynic: ^^^
DesperadoZod: o7
JadedCynic: o7
Trymantha: so who is actully streaming this since there is no going live tweet as far as i can tell?
StarFreak359: o7
JadedCynic: Ian
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Trymantha ian
TXC2: Trymantha Ian is main host
JadedCynic: with Cam, Matt W, Andrew F & ashton(?) joining them
JadedCynic: *him
Sarah_Serinde: JadedCynic I think you're misinterpreting some of what accountmadeforants has been saying, they haven't been demanding no multi-player, and they were wishing you could play the story mode in co-op, which apparently you can't. Also, some people don't necessarily have time/interest in super long campaigns, that isn't the same as saying "less content is best"
Pal_Friendpatine: Excited to see Punch-a-Chunk come back
accountmadeforants: JadedCynic Sorry, I had to look away for a bit. As for why I generally want shorter story campaigns, it's more that the alternative tends to feel really padded out? At the very least, I wouldn't measure a game's quality by how many hours it'll take up.
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> It’s time for a Bonus Star Wars: Squadrons stream! Join Ian, Cam, and Matt Wiggins as they try not to crash into asteroids in Spaaaaace! 📷 ||
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: there is definitely a thing as a game that gows on too long
creepywaffleco: Titanfall 2 had a very short campaign and it was great!
Sarah_Serinde: Different people want different things out of games, nothing wrong with that
TheManaLeek: Yeah I'm in the camp of give me a shorter polished campaign than padded fluff
TXC2: ^
accountmadeforants: And yeah, regarding the co-op thing. That was in reply to the campaign apparently not being fully co-op enabled?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: It depends on the kind of game/how the story handles the length for me

TXC2: and we're back
MrTheWalrus: Just saying, If this game had a good, co-op enabled story mode, I wouldn't be watching the stream because I would already be busy playing it. And it seems like the niche of "game where your team shoots other players' team" is not underserved right now.
A_Dub888: !y
Eklinaar: Yeah the campaign being single player only is a huge bummer since the game is otherwise just a reboot of XvT and one of the biggest features of XvT was a fully coop campaign.
TacitusVigil: HONK
red_shoes_jeff: !birb
RocknGrohlNerd: honk
Lysander_Gustav: oh no!
RomanGoro: !y
lamina5432: do we put this under one more now?
TacitusVigil: Honk Squadron standing by.
Fu4ow: excited for some real formations
TheAinMAP: HahaGoose
RomanGoro: Nice Borges reference, Cam
JadedCynic: @accountmadeforants okay, so 'I'd rather shorter but deeper story, than '60hrs long' of shallow placeholder story" is a VERY different statement than " generally prefers shorter story modes." and I agree with the former! :) (of course, if you don't mind 'shallow' SP, you can always create INFINITE content with a mission-generator)
bootrice: Much love from Germany! Love your work! Big up!
TXC2: "I am the most horrible goose" TQ has entered the chat Kappa

MrTheWalrus: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx True. I still might very well end up buying this. Spaceships are cool, you know?
Earthenone: how hard is it to find 0 more people to match up with? :P
Eklinaar: The campaign has some cool stuff I haven't seen in multiplayer yet, like flying inside space stations/dreadnoughts to blow up internal components.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @MrTheWalrus its true, they go pew pew and everything
JadedCynic: Gee, can't imagine WHY I would be loathe to play multiplayer with THIS sort of PUG experience... team communication
mvt9: Cam, do you mean Rogue Squadron?
JadedCynic: yeah, cam, Rogue Squadron was LITERAL rail-shooters ;)
accountmadeforants: JadedCynic Alright, yeah, we're on the same page then. And the "prefer shorter campaigns" also ties in a bit to the co-op thing - it's a bit easier to get friends to join (at this age, anyway), if they know I'm not signing them up for too much time.
TheAinMAP: Arcade?
Izandai: @JadedCynic PUG?
Beofryn: So how long do you have to play the campaign until you can start jumping into the multiplayer?
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
JadedCynic: @Izandai Pick-Up-Group (rando)
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: by the way you can press L to free look around the cabin If your interested in aesthetics ian
TacitusVigil: I mean, considering that everyone speaks English, why not? :P
Lysander_Gustav: :D
ChargingFerret: @TacitusVigil its called Basic iirc
creepywaffleco: The toilet seat y wing helmet is the best helmet!
ChargingFerret: "Basic"
Mangledpixel: Y wings are loud because they are constantly shaking themselves apart
MistahFixIt: "Comrade, you're back early." ... "Death Star's capitalist." ... "Haha what?" ... [Cocks Blaster] "Death Star's capitalist." [Gets back in the A-Wing]
TXC2: it's there to look cool
Eklinaar: Yeah if your A-Wing gets shot you're dead because the A-Wing is just an engine and a gun strapped to a cockpit.
JadedCynic: "Galactic Basic" officially, but yeah referred to as just Basic
codatski: @TXC2 Sure... "cool"
Fu4ow: that's almost a gundam o'neill cylinder in the debres
Lysander_Gustav: Oh neat, there's cockpit view
Lord_ZYRK: Ah, that classic Spacing Green paintjob Kappa
Fu4ow: debris*
Bulllizzard: I think I've missed a bunch of pathologic, hows it going?
Pal_Friendpatine: @eklinaar sounds like fun
MistahFixIt: The A-Wing's primary defense is "being too small and fast to reliably target" as I understand it
NovaTiempo: Squint! Get it! :p
JadedCynic: ooo, scrapyard map - love to have cover
Earthenone: i think you all showed up late, theres a lot of exploaded ship in the area already
TacitusVigil: @ChargingFerret True, true. And that's probably just a translation convention for us.
Mangledpixel: Jem Blessage! Our nemesis!
JadedCynic: @MistahFixIt that always was the case...
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Lysander_Gustav its actually only cockpit view
Lithobraker: Does this game have BVR combat?
Lysander_Gustav: I mean being able to look around inside the cockpit is pretty cool
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: ah gotcha
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Lithobraker what do you mean by bvr?
accountmadeforants: "It ain't much, but it's honest work." Cameron "Babel Librarian" Lauder, Tie Fighter farmer

kalira77: happy bday, @mynameisie lrrAWESOME

Lysander_Gustav: This arena is kind of cool
JadedCynic: Rebel Trooper: "How did you get shot down, Ian?" Pilot Ian: "It was five to one. I got four."
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: this map and my astroid map are the best imo
Loonatic93: Danger Zone!!!!!!!!!!
JadedCynic: oooh, time to cue up Kenny Loggins - we're in The Danger Zone Kappa
Fu4ow: large dots on radar are closer??
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: if you think you have someone on your tail you can tap g to target anyone thats targeting you
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: it helps in confirming it
JadedCynic: @Fu4ow if it has any continuity with previous games
accountmadeforants: Blessaaaage! DansGame
JadedCynic: Matt? "Almost dead" is very different from "All dead"
Fu4ow: ties don't have astromechs, do they still repair?
Izandai: You know, given how much of a beating the inside of a thruster already takes, shooting at it probably shouldn't do that much?
JadedCynic: wait, this is PvP? or Co-op against AI?
MistahFixIt: God that blapblapblap sound is directly activating my dopamine receptors
Magnetic__North: Wow the moral restored all the way
TXC2: JadedCynic I think this is still Co-op
Izandai: @JadedCynic The latter
NovaTiempo: OW
MistahFixIt: Bonk.
accountmadeforants: JadedCynic Currently co-op against AI. Just random-generated missions, it seems?
JadedCynic: @MistahFixIt IKR? and the John Williams-derived soundtrack isn't hurting
ChargingFerret: no one wants to die, ian
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Fu4ow both factions fighters and intercepters have repair abilities you can equip the empires side is'nt called astromech tho
Izandai: nooooo
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: isn't even
Dog_of_Myth: Hawkmen, DIVE
JadedCynic: Wait, so "Brian Blessage" and "Vax Moreso" are EA approved npc names? :D
BlackIsis: Pffft. I remember playing Tie Fighter and not being able to take more than two hits
TheAinMAP: Bummer.
StarFreak359: TIEs harder to kill in name of "balance"?
Mangledpixel: JadedCynic it's Jem Blessage, but yes
JadedCynic: ^^^^seems like it
codatski: It affects damage dealt, and it affects how affective corvette and destroyer defenses are against you. I.e. it is suicide to run a destroyer with low morale
JadedCynic: @StarFreak359 seems like it
ShortRound2099: did chat do the red whatever checking in at the begiinning?
morgoth_bauglyr: so in the star wars universe destroyers are bigger than cruisers?
frnknstn: "Mei-Lin" meen "Nemesis" in Mandalorian
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: nah there actually more fragile cus they dont have innate shields if i recall correctly
SketchyDetails: Why aren't there any Sabaton songs set in the star wars universe
Dog_of_Myth: Blessage Must Die!
accountmadeforants: "Ace fighter spotted! It's Blessage!"
TXC2: ShortRound2099 they sure did
ShortRound2099: Yay!
ChargingFerret: @morgoth_bauglyr Star Destroyers carry cruisers
JadedCynic: @morgoth_bauglyr unlike ANY semblance of reality yes - 'Star Destroyers' (which are more like battleships)
Karfsma778: Cruiser blew ya to bits
DaSunao: @SketchyDetails I now want fictional setting songs from Sabaton
JadedCynic: @morgoth_bauglyr but it's all vague, really - nowadays, 'frigates' (which are supposed to SMALLER than destroyers) tend to have more displacement than ww2 heavy cruisers, mostly due to roles changing...
Izandai: boo
Orlantia: is he saying y wing on purpose?
LordZarano: TombRaid
Perivale: It looks wonderfully chaoric
Perivale: *chaotic
Fu4ow: oof this cockpit seems uncomfortable
Izandai: Does Star Wars even have anything they call a "carrier"?
Karfsma778: No
accountmadeforants: I feel like the "Star" modifier is relevant to the nomenclature. Much like how "death" is just a concept with no real size, but a death Star is just very large.
ChargingFerret: they have dropships
SketchyDetails: @DaSunao Star Wars is fictional?
JadedCynic: I'd say things went all moot after the end of ww2
samwonk: There are hyperdrives-on-a-pole that transport TIEs around.
Pywodwagon: Quasar Fire Carriers
Rogue_07: Get your gun and bring the cat in
DaSunao: @SketchyDetails Lies!
Pywodwagon: theyre the very triangle shaped smaller ships with a the hangar underneath
ChargingFerret: yeah, x-wings are important, because they have a hyperdrive in such a small ship size
BizarroNavarro: is this game worth $40?
ANeMzero: "I'm a genius! Oh no"
MistahFixIt: Huh I always assumed the Star Destroyers (or super-star destroyers) acted as carriers for the TIE Fighters
JadedCynic: @accountmadeforants I mean the 'Star Destroyer' wasn't 'like 'heavy cruiser', but a specific class of 'line-of-battle' spaceship
Pywodwagon: @MistahFixIt they do
BlackIsis: @MistahFixIt they do
MistahFixIt: Orly?
StarFreak359: Ian plz! why you ping of other ships!
ChargingFerret: and carriers for ground troops
StarFreak359: *off
Pywodwagon: the other carrier ships are for smaller operations
TXC2: !addquote (Matt Wiggins) [now] Oh I'm making it out of this....oh I'm NOT making it out of this!
LRRbot: New quote #7259: "Oh I'm making it out of this....oh I'm NOT making it out of this!" —Matt Wiggins [2020-10-03]
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: for anyone thats curious ti fighters have around 1550 base health with no shields, while xwings have 1200 hp with 800 hp shields but the ti fighters are more manuverable and faster
johkmil: I support Ian’s use of ramming speed.
BlackIsis: Wow, that's...disappointing. I wish they hadn't made Tie Fighters more durable, just made them cheaper or something
Karfsma778: So, if you're without power, how long until ya just suffocate
BlackIsis: Or respawn faster
StarFreak359: I don't have a problem with the speed, I have a problem with the ramming :-P
TXC2: Karfsma778 30 mins at least
MistahFixIt: "Sienar Systems TIE/LN Starfighter... a commodity which, after Hydrogen and ignorance, was the most plentiful in all the galaxy..."
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @BlackIsis I mean they essentially have 500 less hp with out regen so
Pywodwagon: The two other imperial carrier ships are the Gozanti- Class Cruiser and the Quasar Fire-Class Cruiser Carrier
Pywodwagon: They're both in the campaign
thraximore: yes
mvt9: yes
PixelArtDragon: There is DEFINITELY someone who has done that
mvt9: the X-Wing series of books does, lightly
TXC2: the rebels had Logistics? :p
robo__nixon: There must be
eDRoaCH: hey that's matt's strategy
Pywodwagon: Cam, theres a really good youtube channel called EckhartsLadder that does a lot of stuff like that
mvt9: or lack there of logistics
JadedCynic: the Victory-class and Imperial-class Star Destroyers are essentially a combination of 'battleship' and 'aircraft carrier' (AND troop transport to enable planetary invasions with a single ship)
Fu4ow: star wars, not about warfare logistics
BlackIsis: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx yeah, but in the original Tie Fighter games they just melted after a couple hits. That was the challenge to flying them.
Spacecarl: I loved the Rogue Squadron books. they were great
JadedCynic: go get'em
MistahFixIt: U-Wing? Huh, never seen one of those before
JadedCynic: Mikey Stackpole FTW :)
robo__nixon: @Spacecarl Indeed. Finally gave Wedge his due
TXC2: MistahFixIt they from Rogue one
Mangledpixel: MistahFixIt they featured in Rogue One
JadedCynic: @MistahFixIt it was in Rogue One - it's a support vessel to buff the rest
Perivale: It looks stunning
PixelArtDragon: The turrets on the capital ship can do some work
Karfsma778: oh wow, you've lost ALL your shielding
Astra7525: THe U-Wing looks awesome. Most of the transforming design look awesome
Spacecarl: @robo__nixon It's why Wedge is my favorite Star WArs character
Karfsma778: on the Capital ship
Pywodwagon: I like taking Ion Weapons on the U-wing for maximum support
johkmil: The capital ships have a lot of CIWS
eDRoaCH: i could use a sandwich
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @BlackIsis I mean they are definitely still noticabley less survivable then the xwings if your getting hit, maybe less extreme than the old games but still there

robo__nixon: Well. I can play this in about 3 hours. Download speed depending
Pywodwagon: The Corvette is gone which makes attacking the Destroyer a lot harder
Fu4ow: remember though, that this is post ROTJ Empire
PixelArtDragon: Considering that the purpose of the Empire's ships were for maintaining hold of the planets in it, they don't need to be designed to fight enemy capitol ships.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: especially cus you can overcharge shields by putting power into them making rebel ships even tankier
TXC2: Morale dropped fast!
ChargingFerret: does friendly fire exist in this game?
Spacecarl: and the empire relied on numbers over durability
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: not to mention the ability to focus shields to the front or back depending on where your getting shot
Karfsma778: Yeah, I think intersceptors to counter the Bombers
robo__nixon: I saw yesterday at the grocery store there is a Mandalorian cereal with Baby Yoda marshmellows
Pywodwagon: Ironically, Fleet Battles vs AI can be harder than people because the AI is much better at attacking capital ships
Astra7525: I thought the interceptors had shields in canon
Pywodwagon: @Astra7525 nope
Karfsma778: They do
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Astra7525 i dont believe so
Pywodwagon: Advanceds and Defenders were the TIES with shields
Karfsma778: wait, no, they don't
Spacecarl: only notable ties had shields. like for VIPs and.... advanced? the experimental ones
Karfsma778: I just checked the Wiki,
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: they dont have shields in this either only the ti reaper has shields but it has an ability to give friendly ships a temporary shields
JadedCynic: well, the min specs of this keep me from wanting this too much - my current CPU of an i5-4460 is less than the i5-6600K, so it'd just chug, and I'd not be able to play effective MP and not even have to blame my aged reflexes ;)

JadedCynic: @TXC2 iirc it's basically K:D and similar
robo__nixon: Ramming only worked in Independence Day
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @TXC2 its basically like tug of war with killing ai ships and players filling your side of the bar and when your side is full its your turn to attack
PixelArtDragon: When the characters say "blast it" is that an order or an exclamation?
JadedCynic: "Good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living is another." Kappa

TXC2: Hello Serge
robo__nixon: @Pywodwagon Return? I guess that suicide run did work
Izandai: heck
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: F
TehAmelie: how goes the war for stars?
JadedCynic: okay, it seems like morale gets 'burned out' by succeeding in mission goals (like eliminate stuff), and then you need to rebuild it
Izandai: slytqLol That's amazing.
Perivale: @robo__nixon very jealous
TXC2: wow rub in much game? :p
JadedCynic: hey, it's just getting you ready for the real thing in live MP :P
Agu_Sakku: theman4Bad
robo__nixon: TehAmelie. They won the Star battle, but haven't won the Star war
Astra7525: I was under the impression that it said +10 player for one kill Ian scored
JadedCynic: Fleet Battles Unlocked for Ian
Perivale: @astra7525 they’re AI ‘players’
Astra7525: and +2 AI for another one
Perivale: There’s also ‘AI’ fighters on each side
KingXicor: So would the daily challenges be called "Star Chores?"
Astra7525: ah, AI players and AI fodder?
robo__nixon: @Perivale Of me buying the game? 40 is probably too much but I love SW
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Astra7525 exactly
JadedCynic: oh great they've got 'challenges'/cheevos, too
ChargingFerret: @Astra7525 there is chaff ai, and "player" ai
Perivale: @robo__nixon more that you’ve got it downloading!
Pywodwagon: you had one done there ian
Perivale: I can’t find a joystick or I’d buy it too
JadedCynic: just think of it as 'grinding for xp' :D
robo__nixon: @Perivale well, it's not done yet. No jinxing :P
Perivale: @robo__nixon enjoy :D
TehAmelie: i thought about making a dogfight simulator but the "be the baddies" genre is a dangerous line to walk
JadedCynic: InB4 this is LRR getting swept by racists?
Perivale: I played so much xwing vs tie fighter growing up
Agu_Sakku: Kinda want to see a B-Wing for some reason....
TXC2: JadedCynic yikes
StalinRuSH: lol "actual humans"
ChargingFerret: lol
Pywodwagon: god if only
Conk2000: VR's and HOTAS's?
Lord_ZYRK: Ashton knows what he did.
Eklinaar: Klingon discommendation
JadedCynic: Andrew: you can only hope that your human opponents are just as old, slow and falible as you are
Fu4ow: well the emperor's dead so idk how much sith influence is left??
RegulusPratus: Cam, sing me more of the song of my people
JadedCynic: Sith? I mean have we heard of any ref to "Jedi"?
GlennSeto: Does a HOTAS really make that much of a difference ? (He asked naively...)
JadedCynic: "Protocol Droid"
gallows_humor: and I need to get a new joystick
Fu4ow: oh huh, this is the same room as one in Rebels
Conk2000: hoatas made he game 400% harder, I got onew
MistahFixIt: @GlennSeto - I dunno about objectively, but I prefer HOTAS tbh
WookieCookie64: Sith is, "an idea, not an organization" LUL
Izandai: slytqLol
TheWanderingNomad: @Fu4ow - Probalby cause this is a briefing room on a Nebula-B
StalinRuSH: when darth vader was a kid he built c3po
JadedCynic: I mean, the fact that this group of friends HAS to use 3rd party comms....I feel that just speaks for itself
Mangledpixel: bbeeeewwww bbbewwwwww
Invitare: which base, you have to be specific. There are many bases
Karfsma778: "xX_Death_Killer_Xx please stop shouting racial slurs into the mic"
TXC2 's eye rolls over and his Spine slides out of his ass
TacitusVigil: Yeah.
TacitusVigil: Isn't it?
red_shoes_jeff: Yeah, it's from New Hope
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: pretty sure its the same sound in a new hope
Fu4ow: probably remaster or however
ameliette: a venator ruin??? that makes me ridiculously happy
JadedCynic: @StalinRuSH my headcanon is that young 'annie' followed a blueprint get got in a magazine or something - basically kitbashing scrap to emulate a commercial model
Mangledpixel: Tantive IV, aka the ship entirely made out of corridors
robo__nixon: #Squadgoals
robo__nixon: Damn, Matt beat me to it
TheMandrew: Ian, did you end up getting your stick working?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: These are very pretty enviroments
Perivale: That’s sad, you could do that with ‘V’ in xwing vs tie fighter
Fu4ow: do flying formations make any sense in this game?
robo__nixon: If the Rogue Squadron books taught me anything, you stick together
GlennSeto: @MistahFixIt I'm genuinely curious. A friend living nearby owns one... I should check it out, after the current unpleasantness.
TacitusVigil: Wait, if you're fighting fighters piloted by AI, doesn't that technically make them...Droid Fighters? Kappa

xXRealGamerThaigeXx: drove into the fog lol
Micsig: Pilot Error
JadedCynic: yeah, the maps/etc and the sound and music are REALLY making me pine for this, but 1) it's EA, 2) it's MP and I'm so tired of racist epithets and gratuitious profanity...
robo__nixon: And now the game Truly begins . . .
TehAmelie: i do like these levels. space needs a lot of stuff in it to be cool
TXC2: right chat I'm off
Karfsma778: And then Kills you
SeismicLawns: pilot error
GlennSeto: oh no, I've read that Penny Arcade comic... these poor fools

mathgeek3_14: is this pod racing?
accountmadeforants: You're complicit in murder! Congratulations!
PixelArtDragon: Maybe this is near where the Malevolence was?
GlennSeto: What was the really dangerous thing again, that they do here in the Solo movie? Slingshot around a black hole or something?
Orgmastron: Row row row your lrrGOAT
LurkerSpine: what are the green rings?
Izandai: I will forever love that the story of the Kessel Run is that nobody knows what a "parsec" is.
ReynardWrecca: They should have a speech recogniser on the voice chat that automatically destroys your ship if you yell "yippee!"
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @LurkerSpine resupply points
Fu4ow: @ReynardWrecca or any slur
JadedCynic: 1) warning, 2) direction guide, and a) kill when exceed <distance> beyond limit...and if your velocity is high enough; you never get to 2 before A happens
RedRaptor: This would be so good as a LAN party game whenever those things can happen again.
LurkerSpine: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx thanks
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: fill up your missiles and health
Karfsma778: the shielding and missiles and HP for your team seem good?
MistahFixIt: Arent Reapers Troop Carriers?
ReynardWrecca: @Fu4ow, well yes, obviously. But specifically for this game, "yippee!"
GlennSeto: @Izandai The way this world has contorted itself to accommodate a bad science line in the original movie is weirdly beautiful.

xantos69: Cheer50 Ian. Any chance you will do community play days of this game?
Mangledpixel: we're.... winning? Is that right?
ReynardWrecca: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx OUCH, I'd honestly blotted that one out.

xXRealGamerThaigeXx: sup thermos
Astra7525: I think the supports can deploy turrets and that's what hit you there, Ian
Izandai: @GlennSeto slytqLol So true.
JadedCynic: Ian: hit 'G' when you start getting wailed on like that - "target who is targeting you" ;)
TheManaLeek: Playing against the brutally hard AI was good practice.

MrTheWalrus: Curse you Pilot Error!
TheWanderingNomad: So we got Ian, Cam, Matt(wiggins), Andrew,a nd Ashton?
Manae: The return of your greatest enemy
therm0s_: I think Pilot Error is hacking, make sure to report them
BlackIsis: yikes, you are crushing them

Karfsma778: Every ONE of you has more points than the best of them
MistahFixIt: That Pilot Error guy seems pretty good ngl Kappa
Critterbot: Wow, Matt is really tearing them a new one.
TehAmelie: we're comin back alive again
frnknstn: what kinda joystick is Matt using?
Izandai: How much do y'all wanna bet someone has already taken the username "Pilot Error"?
Pal_Friendpatine: I love the hit the dash twice to start the engines
Fu4ow: what is Matt flying?
Calaban161: Who is playing?
MistahFixIt: Matt, Ian, Cam and Andrew iirc
red_shoes_jeff: Pilot Error, of the Hylian Fleet.
Izandai: Current pilots: Ian, Cameron, Matt, Andrew, Ashton
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: Ian cam matt andrew and ashton
MistahFixIt: Oh ashton my b
Izandai: Matt Wiggins, that is
Invitare: these aren't the droids you're looking for
Lord_ZYRK: After watching Desert Bus so many times, who would've thought that Matt was a great pilot? Keepo
TehAmelie: that bold lithobraking manouver clearly was instrumental to the team victory
Izandai: Original Flavor Matt
Orgmastron: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: god I love cams outfit
Karfsma778: Just absolutely ATE them
Pywodwagon: I like cam's full a-wing pilot outifit
Izandai: An infinite KDR is nothing to sneeze at.
ReynardWrecca: Functionally infinite K/D ratio!
TheWanderingNomad: Matt "Unshootable" Wiggins
JadedCynic: wait, could you guys do emotes during that 'show the winning team' screen? :D
hyaundredneer: Duh one who lives to tell their stories...
RedRaptor: One day they'll put in B-Wings... One day...
Magnetic__North: Does this game have known microtransactions yet?
ReynardWrecca: My game group is all playing this, and I really want to join in, but I will be SO BAD at it.
codatski: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
ThreeTwoOnePantsOff: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
ttvtiedbarbecue: @magnetic__north nope
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @Magnetic__North no microtransactions
Magnetic__North: Nice, hopefully it stays that way
JadedCynic: @RedRaptor I got big money that says that will be a paid DLC sometime next year :p
codatski: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx Yet
TehAmelie: by the way has the infinite inventive pedantry of the star wars fandom yet come up with an explanation for the shops named after the Latin alphabet?
RedRaptor: @JadedCynic If it's bundled with more story missions then I'd be ok. If it's literally just ship DLC then I'm out.
GlennSeto: @ReynardWrecca I'm a total scrub at these games, but they are so much fun. Been enjoying being bad at this since Wing Commander 2 (?) on the SNES.
Izandai: @TehAmelie Ships, you mean?
JadedCynic: @ReynardWrecca well, from what we've seen, apparently so will most everyone else - and then teamwork will trump individual skill (so if you're with friends, you'll beat a rando group most of the time)
TehAmelie: right
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @codatski I mean what would they even add microtransactions for? everthing is super easy to earn in game the only thing I could think of is new ships or maps which is dlc not microtransaction
MistahFixIt: Acura, trying to sell cars to Gamers by making it look like Forza 4 feels... irresponsible, tbh
ameliette: i recall one legends explanation was that there's ancient basic alphabet that equal to earth's and the ships are named for those?
Izandai: Well, since I have to assume there's an answer for why arguably the most famous Star Wars ship is named after a creature that so far as we've seen does not exist in this galaxy, probably?
TehAmelie: naturally
JadedCynic: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx yeah, the game just doesn't seem to be geared for 'microtransactions' - maybe 'macrotransactions' of DLC ships, pilots races etc
codatski: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx It is easy to earn in game, so far. They could very easily change that. Similar to what happened with Battlefront :p :p
TehAmelie: what i like is the Wolf in Eve Online, named after a "mythical beast"
JadedCynic: @RedRaptor ....this is EA, sadly.
Eklinaar: It wouldn't surprise me if they added microtransactions to just buy the in-game currency, or multipliers to earning the in-game currency.
TehAmelie: the myth of the wolf survives not one but two civilizations. . .
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @codatski battlefront was the opposite of what your saying tho, it started off pay to win then they took that away and made playing the game the only way to upgrade stuff
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @codatski and that was all before launch, even ea wouldnt retroactivly make things harder to get and add in microtransactions greedy as they are
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: that would be way to much of a pr nightmare
Magnetic__North: I assume they are gunshy later battlefront 2 got govts to look into it
JadedCynic: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx give them too much credit - "never attribute to malice (or deliberate intent) what can be ascribed to incompetence" :D
Kreiseler: I think you underestimate ea. or companies is general
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: true
codatski: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx Yes it sure did, when they did that for Battlefront 1.
JadedCynic: @xXRealGamerThaigeXx I'm sure there's going to be balance issues, and any attempt to 'fix' that will make things worse, unintentionally
KingXicor: Umm. "Standing By?"
Invitare: that's a terrible role call. There's a literal format for this: "Red X standing by"
Koshindan: hooglPew hooglPew
DeM0nFiRe: pew pew church bench
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: but honestly ea has been turning around the star wars liscense with all the changes the made to battlefront 2, fallen order being good and now this game
ANeMzero: do not try to destroy tie fighters with kittens
Kreiseler: mu mu coeficents of friction!
Izandai: Dew dew drops!
TheWanderingNomad: "Four lit and green!"
JadedCynic: Red Tide, rising
PixelArtDragon: Red hat, standing by

Agu_Sakku: artpluGasm
KingXicor: Redd Foxx, standing by.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: just remember to protest with your wallet if they ever go back to doing crappy things tho
space_turbulence: Red X Parasite, standing by
delta__vee: wwglp
JadedCynic: I mean, this game seems very promising, but 1) my specs don't meet the minimum, 2) it's EA
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: mark hammil is logging on as we speak :P
SpacePotato01: So why is there no w-wing?
TheWanderingNomad: There is in the EU!
Rogue_07: Take a look at the K-Wing sometimes if you want to see some EU nonsense
Lord_ZYRK: An E
BrowneePoints: E-Wing Escort Starfightinger
Koshindan: George Lucas just pilots a TIE fighter with a George Lucas's head skin.
Pal_Friendpatine: Yeah I’ll wait to see what they do with the game before I commit to purchasing. I might get EAPlay for the 10 hour play trial though
BrowneePoints: Starfighter*
Invitare: is E-wing the broken one... or is that K-wing?
PixelArtDragon: You know what would be a neat easter egg? If you could play snake with the grid in the loading screen
JadedCynic: "FreiTek E-7 E-wing multi-role starfighter"
Eklinaar: George Lucas pilots the USS Retcon
PixelArtDragon: Wait, doesn't the Ebon Hawk have an E shape in a way?
niccus: named after patrick ewing
Reduce_Sanity: Its bad luck
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon yeah,. the Ebon Hawk might be a scaled-up ship similar in build to the E-wing
CAKHost: If you don't know the plan, you can't tell the enemy!
CAKHost: That's a big brain play
KingXicor: that was.... epic.
StarFreak359: Ebon Hawk is much rounder
Fu4ow: what's the triple wing clone fighter?
Countzeroor: Gilgamesh? That's no fight, that's a Noble Phantasm!
Countzeroor: *figher
JadedCynic: wait, that sounds like Rene Auberjonois as the Mon Cal admiral....
StarFreak359: @Fu4ow Arc-170?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: arc wing
Fu4ow: thx

JadedCynic: okay, that TIEb has shields
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: he could be boosting also
JadedCynic: NICE hatrick that cam spotted :D
Fu4ow: @PixelArtDragon v much so
iris_of_ether: benginDab
MostExcellentHat: tuned into the stream just as Ian explodes. nice
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon normally yes, but IIRC they still don't have SHIELDS
Pal_Friendpatine: I like that Ian grunts like he’s pulling Gs
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @JadedCynic ti reapers can give other ships temporary shields but the tie bomber is natively unshielded
Fairgrim: I would not be surprised to have Ian doing G hicks on stream
JadedCynic: okay, looks like matchmaking is WORKING - y'all had NO history, so they just dropped you in with randos, and your teamwork swept, but NOW they have stats to rank you to 'equivalent opponents' :D

Lysander_Gustav: oh that's a shame
withr: does ian not use his repair droid?
Serifina: Ian nooooo
FinalShowFilms: Still, a controller and VR headset might be sweet
Pal_Friendpatine: Dead heat for this game!
Micsig: They are using the power adjustments
Mangledpixel: this is a much closer match
Fu4ow: tie fighter cockpits look really cool
Lysander_Gustav: Does any game play well with the steel battalion controller?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: LUL
JadedCynic: iirc, not even steel battalion
Anaerin: Steel Battalion might.
Serifina: I gotta say, this game is hella fun
RedRaptor: Does Ian not have a proper throttle controller?
JadedCynic: Ashton: "G" in keyboard, alternatively
JadedCynic: @RedRaptor not yet
Snowcookies: the throttle isn't working iirc
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: hey ian any reason your not trying different power to subsytems?

JadedCynic: sooooon™

xXRealGamerThaigeXx: hey ian have you tried shifting around your power alocation yet?
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: If matchmaking is consistently good, that could swing some people that were on the fence before
Izandai: Cameron "Babel "Someone Stole My Username" Librarian" Lauder
JadedCynic: @ThreeTwoOnePantsOff yep; Cam couldn't get "UnarmedOracle" for some inexplicable reason - it's soo obscure it's odd that it's taken (I expect my username to be gone)
JadedCynic: @NarwhalsInATrenchcoat exactly....
creepywaffleco: Do you get to choose what faction you play?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: matt is a fiend
Izandai: @JadedCynic This is why my username is a made-up word.
JadedCynic: I am thinking about building a better PC...
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @creepywaffleco you can set a preffered one when matchmaking but its not guranteed
Lysander_Gustav: That's impoite
FinalShowFilms: My username (Not this one) is never taken, fortunately, and I'm the only person that ever appears when you search for it.
Wrexadecimal: I know someone in serbia had the same username I had.
Wrexadecimal: for toher stuff
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: U wings are great for support
Wrexadecimal: *other
Serifina: I dislike the support ships, personally
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: having heals is amazing
JadedCynic: I think the U-Wing is BETTER than a Y-Wing; slower, but even tougher, plus it buffs teammates
Lysander_Gustav: getting dizzy
PixelArtDragon: Ahhhh! This is making me dizzy!
JadedCynic: oh, turrets :)
SoldieroFortune: U-wing has them too
Rogue_07: The U-Wing had door gunners
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: no u wings have door gunners too
SoldieroFortune: But you can't use them in space
Rogue_07: Took out an AT-AT as I recall
TheWooglie: surely no-one chooses a y-wing for a dog fight thought
Lysander_Gustav: A real furball
tidehollowcat: I'd love for Clone Wars ships to be added.
JadedCynic: imagine the original Y-Wing - two-seater with the 'ion cannons' turretted
StarFreak359: Great day for a furball :-D
JadedCynic: yep, here come those usernames
Izandai: I like how they all think "Oh no, there's nothing for me to hide behind" and not "Oh good, there's nothing for them to hide behind!"
Kreiseler: naboo fighters when
MistahFixIt: *banging fist on desk* "Get me pieces of Spider-man!"
StarFreak359: but, why Rei huge?
JadedCynic: looks like they are actually supporting each other - bad news
PixelArtDragon: To quote a certain movie: "Almost there!"
TheWanderingNomad: Can you link your laser fire in the X-Wing like in other games?
JadedCynic: maybe cover each other?
Lysander_Gustav: Does drifting work in this?
JadedCynic: Don't think so @TheWanderingNomad ...but maybe Ian just isn't doing it?
Kikazi: also keep moving, try not to throttle to zero
Izandai: @Lysander_Gustav Yep
Izandai: It's tricky though.
TheWanderingNomad: @JadedCynic I ask because while slower, quad-linked fire might put more damage on them
JadedCynic: fly with wingmen to cut down on the 'bait and switch'
Martin_FcG: oh that sound!
JadedCynic: @TheWanderingNomad IKR...but...
FinalShowFilms: I really want to get a flight stick for this but I've got no idea what to get
Martin_FcG: Just joined. That sound is amazing
MistahFixIt: blat blat blat blat
JadedCynic: logitech bought the remains of Saitek from Mad Catz, so there's that @FinalShowFilms
BlackIsis: @FinalShowFilms You can probably just get a low-end Thrustmaster for this. It's not like Elite where you really want something top of the line.
JadedCynic: but it's logitech so price point may be an issue
Agu_Sakku: Almost wish they made a gamecube controller for PC. Cause of all the Rogue One games I played back in the day!
MistahFixIt: I want a Logitech X56 for Elite Dangerous, but it'd probably work dandy here too X3
JadedCynic: y'all got too good, and 'dug too deeply' ;)
tailoredfit: How would you compare this with Xbox and Tie Fighter games?
Izandai: @BlackIsis Why is it more important to have a really good stick for Elite than for this?
tailoredfit: X-Wing and Tie Fighter*
PixelArtDragon: Sounds like you should be running drills
TheWanderingNomad: That's good Wingmanning right there
Fu4ow: can you set the xwing to fire all cannons at once?
BlackIsis: @Izandai Elite has a *lot* more controls to keep track of.
Izandai: Mmm, I see
BlackIsis: And a much more complicated flight model.
JadedCynic: yay! camping
PixelArtDragon: Avoid that splort ship?
JadedCynic: Admiral Obvious, reporting in
TheWanderingNomad: Oof lost that head to head
Swamplor: ADMIRAL: Git gud, newbs!
MistahFixIt: Da End.
Izandai: Well that was... Not as competitive.
Eklinaar: @tailoredfit This game is more or less a modern reboot of X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, with a modern level-up progression system for unlocking ship components, and without a coop campaign. The single player campaign is only 8 hours long.
JadedCynic: hahaha
Serifina: Ahahaha
Lysander_Gustav: honk
someusername5: makes sense, matchmaking first gives too easy, then evenly matched, then too hard
Swamplor: "A Horrible Goose" is the cheevo for being a bad wingman
mercano82: "A Horrible Goose" is the achivement you get for putting your starfighter into an unrecoverable flat spin.
TheWanderingNomad: Haha , I get that reference
tailoredfit: @Eklinaar Thanks! Does it still have all the power management elements? This seems a lot more arcade-y with its health boost powerups.
frnknstn: @Eklinaar that sounds like "a modern reboot of XvT but worse in every way"
JadedCynic: @someusername5 well,. the thing is - they WON their evenly matched fight, so obv they needed harder - there's ONLY three data points for the matchmaker to work with - NO ONE with LRR team has pvp'd before now
Izandai: @frnknstn It's prettier.
Serifina: Fleet battles!
Serifina: IMO, Fleet Battles are the real draw. :D
Unpronounceable: Hiya chat
TheFryWalker: no B-wings :(
someusername5: @JadedCynic oh I know, I wasn't being sarcastic -- this is exactly how it should go
JadedCynic: @tailoredfit it DOES have the 'tweak the power triangle' but ian doesn't have his throttle being recognized, so it's harder for him
Eklinaar: @frnknstn Depends on whether or not you think modern developments in game design trends are a good thing or not.
Fu4ow: U-Wing McGregor
AgentMagicMaster: y e s
Lord_ZYRK: frnknstn it's prettier? :)
JadedCynic: if y'all would cover each other....
MistahFixIt: @Fu4ow - BOO.
Izandai: @Lord_ZYRK Beat you to that one. :p
Pal_Friendpatine: All Y-Wing run sounds like the plan!
BlackIsis: Can you only do fleet battles against AI?
badpandabear: Apparently you need to be level 5 to play fleet battles against humans
Fu4ow: :P
Eklinaar: @tailoredfit It has a power management system very similar to XvT. It does not have linking, which XvT did. It does have a loadout system where you can swap out different components with different stats, which XvT did not have.
JadedCynic: @BlackIsis so far it seems so - maybe MP gets unlocked at a higher level?
BlackIsis: Ah.
Karfsma778: Mister-Y wing? Mystery Wing?
Swamplor: Having to sleep outside is pretty harsh punishment when you live on a spaceship
tailoredfit: X Wing pilots make movies, Y Wing pilots make HISTORY
JadedCynic: two a's, an x and two U's
Izandai: slytqLol
Karfsma778: I thought Cam was going to say "the X-wing pilots have to tackle a Y-wing"
Lysander_Gustav: yay
Micsig: Don't hit the glass like a bird
frnknstn: It is very pretty! And I "there are other people who play it" is an advantage over XvT
MistahFixIt: BONK
Fairgrim: Wow this map is cool
Izandai: @frnknstn lol very true
MistahFixIt: BONK (redux)
Koshindan: Everyone is fighting the Empire, while Ian is living his best life.
Pal_Friendpatine: Well since you have to “destroy enemies” first. It makes sense to get into X, U and A first
Serifina: I will say, it helps to have played the campaign some
Pal_Friendpatine: And now swap to the Y’s
MrTheWalrus: How long until the B-wing DLC, do you figure?
Karfsma778: Wipe and Swap to Y-wings Kappa
JadedCynic: @MrTheWalrus I wager, summer 2021
Fu4ow: and whatever the next big movie/etc starfighter is
Eklinaar: @frnknstn The lack of a lengthy coop campaign is a big disappointment for me, but the addition of a customizeable components system is a big plus for me.
Fu4ow: a high republic starfighter would be funny
PixelArtDragon: "Who's on you?" "Yes."
chaostreader: I assume RIP in peace means rest in pieces in peace.
JadedCynic: I love the team comms - cooperation always is a big force-multiplier
Fu4ow: oh this is the asteroid field from ESB?
Izandai: @chaostreader ...In space!
Fantusta: Does Jem have holograms?
JadedCynic: but of course, we have discord to thank for that, not EA Kappa
Raiger: I wish I could get my flight stick to work on PS4 for this, been unable so far :(
TheWooglie: Can Ian fly into the star destroyer?
Fu4ow: what's the AI discord chat like?
Fu4ow: that's a very white spaceship
PixelArtDragon: I'm loving the detail on the station
Snowcookies: Fu4ow Ones and zeros Kappa
PixelArtDragon: It makes me think it's actually a real-life model like the original ships
l3nnoon: All the flipping upside down is messing with my brain
Fu4ow: is this like the station from Resistance?
Izandai: @l3nnoon The enemy capital ship is down.
Blasteg: can player drive big ship like that?
Fu4ow: @Blasteg no
BlackIsis: No, just fighters.
l3nnoon: @izandai that will help
Pal_Friendpatine: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:46:21.
frnknstn: @Eklinaar customization sounds good to me too. I just worry I will get enough hours played to unlock it.
Fu4ow: I hear there are paintjobs?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: you have to target the raider and look at your console to see its health
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: side note I dont think Ive played on this map yet
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: it looks extremely cool
Eklinaar: This map seems rad
TheWooglie: nice
PixelArtDragon: Full spread!
frnknstn: wow, nice run
ThreeTwoOnePantsOff: lrrFINE
JadedCynic: ooo, sneaky of that ....tie bomber?
JadedCynic: and that was AI, too!
Koshindan: Bombers seem pretty good.
PixelArtDragon: Nicely done with that attack!
meepsalot subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 54 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, meepsalot! (Today's storm count: 54)
PixelArtDragon: Goddammit but I am in love with the 3D modeling in this game!
Karfsma778: Targeting I think
Blasteg: can you kamikaze into those?
Karfsma778: But I thinnk it's "kill fighters" time
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: I like to go targetting into power
Serifina: Ian, I know you said your throttle isn't working - are the power adjustment controls also on the throttle for you, and not the stick?
JadedCynic: take out targeting to make it more SURVIVABLE
CaptainSpam: "Kill Cam: The Star Destroyer. Just, all of it. A Star Destroyer occurred at you."
cardinalfool: I mean you are in a y wing lol
JadedCynic: @Blasteg it doesn't seem to do anything - randos they played with earlier before Ashton & Andrew joined, and they kept 'feeding' almost
Serifina: Oh, yeah, Boosting is how you break tractor controls
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: you need to be in full power to engines to charge boost @LoadingReadyRun
Micsig: you're shields were still focused front as you ran?
BlackIsis: Can you dump laser power to shields like you could in XvT?
SoldieroFortune: BlackIsis yes
Swamplor: What does morale affect?
BlackIsis: That was always the trick. Leave shields at stable and just power your lasers and dump laser power to shields
CleeKru: i can hear Andrew, Matt, Cameron, Ashton AND Ian full house today i see
JadedCynic: AI cheetz
Mangledpixel: BlackIsis the three coloured bars on the dashboard there are the power distribution between the three key systems
MistahFixIt: To shreds, you say?
Walter42: Im not sure Ywing is the right choice
BlackIsis: @Mangledpixel I know, but in XvT, it was better to dump your laser charge directly to shields rather than incrase shield power
Mangledpixel: ah I see
EscherichiaCole: fleet battles are basically moba maps
Pal_Friendpatine: I like the balance of things to do. There is always something to try to do to change the balance of things
PixelArtDragon: You can destroy the tractor beam, right?
Karfsma778: oh hell and they made you slam into your space station
JadedCynic: @Mangledpixel @BlackIsis I'd seen another streamer go over the keymaps - and 'shunt power' between systems IS a thing - might have to be unlocked tho?
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon you can shake it, apparently?
JadedCynic: AI cheetz - wallhax! :D
PixelArtDragon: @JadedCynic I'm talking about the generator
Fu4ow: you can fire without a lock, might be useful in those point blank moments
TheManaLeek: Direct power shunting is only for TIEs
Swamplor: I assume the MC75 is a seminal punk rock band with an absolutely unwieldy number of members
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: Cheer100 ian you have to be in full engine power to start charging your boost meter, it goes down if you use it or switch off full engine power
TheManaLeek: You can go super full engines or lasers and essentially lose control of the other as a TIE
Pal_Friendpatine: So when you pull back to defend add power to shields makes sense right?
JadedCynic: hmmmm, big cheats
MistahFixIt: For a hot second there I really thought Ian was gonna crash right on the capital ship's doorstep LOL
JadedCynic: here comes the cavalry! ;)
Loonatic93: Is it a Little Red Corvette?
Ritaspirithntr: !stream
JadedCynic: @MistahFixIt you weren't alone
PixelArtDragon: I've heard that if the capital ships get close enough, they can start fighting each other
Ritaspirithntr: Hmm. Wrong command
chaostreader: Ian, try diverting power to engines.
Lord_ZYRK: !help
chaostreader: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:59:52.
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon we saw that during one co-op match - they couldn't take out the ISD with the two randos just feeding, and it took the MC75 to finish it off :)
Karfsma778: you did at least slam into it and probably did some damage with your corpse
warkettletwitch: Hi Ian :)
splatty1: I notice there is a drift control? what does that mean in this case?
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @splatty1 you can drift out of a boost to turn 90 and 180 degrees quickly
Fu4ow: rear attack seems good
Koshindan: Later Raider.
RothonWylar: Ian don' forget to engage u ion cannon
RothonWylar: usefull for whenur geting swarmed
Karfsma778: ooh, you've lost a shield generator
WookieCookie64: Drift controls? You bring back the ol' Deja Vu meme and reenact it.
LadyAiluros: Oooof y-wing bomber. Wishbone.
splatty1: air superiority y wing
Ritaspirithntr: !guests
LRRbot: Today's guests are Olivia Gobert-Hicks, Ashlen Rose, Kenji Egashira, Jeremy Noell, Meghan Wolff, Maria Bartholdi, and Alison Luhrs.
Karfsma778: uhhh
Ritaspirithntr: Wrong guests LRR bot
LadyAiluros: how is the stick working, Ian?
Kreiseler: wow which preprerelease is that from?
Toucansuit: I mean, a whole ship explosion is pretty good bomb Kappa
Blasteg: mic 5!
Baldrash: I think that's from a Jackbox? Or was that Among Us?
Karfsma778: their targeting system is very nearly gone yeah
LadyAiluros: awesome!
PixelArtDragon: I thought it's called "the pointy arrow of winning"
Ritaspirithntr: Ok, well I’ve nailed down that today is: Andrew, Matt, Cameron, Ian and someone else?
Baldrash: It's Ashton, Rita.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: ashton
Eklinaar: Yeah assaulting the enemy capital ship seems brutal. Probably gotta focus on disabling it somehow.
Ritaspirithntr: @baldrash thank you!!
Karfsma778: yeah, don't ram your own flagship
WookieCookie64: I was going to say Ian is a great flier, then he did that.
Serifina: They do have specific guns, but they fire... CONSTANTLYU
Pal_Friendpatine: I once played a flight sim, I was very young, and didn’t understand which bombs to use for which part of the mission.
splatty1: this game feels kind of slow, is that just this the y wing or is everything like this?
LadyAiluros: also Incom T-65 X-wing best starfighter and I will die on that hill :)
BlackIsis: You can kill the guns and they won't be able to shoot at you...Rob Zacny was talking about doing that on Waypoint Radio yesterday
PixelArtDragon: It's mostly because it's a Y wing @splatty1
JadedCynic: @Eklinaar nope this is it; pound it until the shields are down temporarily, then target a system, then repeat
Eklinaar: F
Fu4ow: god I wanna see Rob play this game
Pal_Friendpatine: So I would fly by and drop one of the gps targeting bombs on not the right target. When I missed I would circle around again, drop it in a slightly different spot again and again until I hit the target.
Kreiseler: more?
PixelArtDragon: Uhh... one more?
circusofkirkus: LUL
Serifina: You can, in fact, destroy the guns. It helps.
Orgmastron: !onemore
LRRbot: One More? En til?
RealGamerCow: Matt is full lrrHAM
Pal_Friendpatine: Needless to say I finally figured it out one day and the game became about 1 thousand time easier
jessieimproved: Ya'll are convincing me to buy this game
Unpronounceable: Hey chat, what controls is everyone using? (KB+M, controller, flightstick, etc.)
jessieimproved: How is the single player campaign?
kalku__: HoTaS
TheManaLeek: I'm on the ol HOTAS
kalku__: flight stick all the way
Mai_Andra: It's so nice. I'm just so bad at this sort of thing. (I wonder if I should invest in a flight stick... >.>)
TheManaLeek: Single player is an 8 hour tutorial
splatty1: does anyone else find the y wings ion cannons to be really dinky looking?
Serifina: HOTAS is definitely the way to go
TheManaLeek: It's enjoyable, but it is there to teach you the game
MistahFixIt: An Amazon Original Series about a viral outbreak? ...maybe read the room a little, Jeff?
jessieimproved: @TheManaLeek I haven't played any flight games for a loooooong time, so that might not be a bad idea
Snowcookies: Controllers are probably the next best if you don't want to sink money into a hotas
Serifina: The only problem is you have to do some pretty significant rebinding with the HOTAS
Mai_Andra: That reminds me, I still never finished watching Containment. I even know somebody who was in it... =/
Unpronounceable: @kalku__ I didn't realize there were that many flight sticks amongst the LRR crew
Serifina: Yeah, I would absolutely recommend a controller if you don't have and don't want/cant buy a HOTAS
badpandabear: Does any one here play with dual flight sticks? I was thinking of trying that since I don't have a throttle
Ashton: I'm using a controller and it still feels pretty good.
MistahFixIt: Does Squadrons recognize Dual Sticks?
manutd087: does hotas give u an advantage or is it simply for imersion?
TheManaLeek: It definitely can use dual sticks
Mai_Andra: Well, the fighters themselves have dual sticks. hashtag realism?
Snowcookies: Immersion, some find it smoother
kylebro64: small advantage on a game like squadrons. big advantage on simulators
manutd087: ah
Serifina: *Mostly* immersion, but it's definitely way better than m+kb
BlackIsis: @manutd087 It's a little easier to do fine-grain maneuvering with a flight stick
MistahFixIt: Want a HoTaS with a split throttle for Elite Dangerous, personally
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: Ive tried controller and hotus and I actually prefer keyboard and mouse lol
manutd087: did anyone else get placed at mav 1 despite winning almost all placements?
kylebro64: i prefer xbox controller over hortas lol
kylebro64: so i feel u
Serifina: Ultimately, it's whatever feels most comfortable for *you* that's important
TheManaLeek: ^^
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @manutd087 I won 8/10 and got placed maverick 1 as well
manutd087: rip i got 7/10
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: ian please look at the last bits message im begging you lol
DeM0nFiRe: \[T]/
PMAvers: the most jovial of cooperation
TheArchitectX: Jolly? He was a pilot on Battlestar Galactica, not Star Wars.
Serifina: Yyyyep
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: at last
Serifina: Boost is Very Important
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: my mission is complete
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: I can rest now
RealGamerCow: Hello friends, how is the Star Warsing?
TheManaLeek: Drift is hard and I can never tell if I do it or not
Serifina: @TheManaLeek How far does your PoV lean, is the best way to tell. It's actually really obvious once you get used to it.
TheManaLeek: And I've read at least three or four contradictory ways to do it
Serifina: @LoadingReadyRun Max engine power
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: no ian you have to shift power
Serifina: You have to switch power to focus engines
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: not the throttle
TheMandrew: divert all power to engines
TheAinMAP: That looks like a Venator wreck?
Mr_Horrible: oh wow, this is much more involved than I'd have expected. Neat!
TheMandrew: now boost
MistahFixIt: Boost Capacitors Charging...
Snowcookies: this is how betrayal happens
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: now you can boost
Basic_Human_Decency: we get cars and they get ships? Kappa
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: its the little bar next to your throttle is your meter

vegetalss4: 39 months
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, vegetalss4! (Today's storm count: 55)
splatty1: you got boost power
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: this is also why I love slam engines
Koshindan: Can you destroy the turrets on the capital ship?
TheManaLeek: @koshindan Yup!
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: so you can boost without being in engine power all the time
TheAinMAP: Smashing.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: your in power to shields rn
MistahFixIt: My understanding is you Divert Power To Engines to charge Boost, and then you can redirect power and still have a Boost in the chamber, yeah?
Pal_Friendpatine: This is fun to watch. I’ll have to switch over to Wiggins when he begins to stream. It’ll be neat to see a different perspective
TheManaLeek: Your boost will decline while not in that mode
MistahFixIt: Ah. Dang.
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @MistahFixIt it starts draining your boost meter slowly if your not in power to engines but its not an instant decline
PixelArtDragon: Maybe the ship has some kind of deflector shielding that makes less of a clang noise?
TheManaLeek: Shame about Matt's HoTAs ion issue, haven't had that happen :(
MistahFixIt: @PixelArtDragon - Sounds sus tbh :P
Dog_of_Myth: Blessage!! *shakes fist*
samwonk: Great combat bark there. "The enemies are winning! Let's stop losing!"
HoloTheWiseWolf_: hey ian hows the squads going?
Kreiseler: are there any good sticks that DONT cost several hundred dollars?
MistahFixIt: Trying to interpret this UI... does Ian's ship have separate Fore and Aft Shields?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: Kreiseler the new microsoft flight sim one isnt to much
Fu4ow: @MistahFixIt that's a popup menu
xXRealGamerThaigeXx: @MistahFixIt yes and you can shift power between them
TheManaLeek: Yup separate shields, and you can balance full front or back
Despoiler98: @MistahFixIt yes you can direct energy to double up forward or aft shields
MistahFixIt: Oh neat.
BlackIsis: @Kreiseler There's a low-end Thrustmaster for $60-$80 I think?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: yes thats the one with the stick and throttel mountedd together
Despoiler98: I love how they kept the overall esthetic of the old X wing games in much better graphics
IOI681387: health bombing runs are the best
MistahFixIt: I think that particular Thrustmaster can de-couple the throttle from the stick, but I'm not 100% sure
HoloTheWiseWolf_: that said i got an logitech x-56 for elite and now squad and that was $500
Sheepy1081: the AI in this game is not easy even if their set on easy
virtualcatastrophe subscribed with Twitch Prime. They've subscribed for 6 months!
virtualcatastrophe: Thanks for the great content. I love it, even if you are Rebel Scum :p
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, virtualcatastrophe! (Today's storm count: 56)
HoloTheWiseWolf_: so i know little of the low end
TheManaLeek: Yeah the AI are ludicrously good
BlackIsis: @MistahFixIt I am pretty sure you are correct
PixelArtDragon: At sea? I thought this was space!
dayman__s: is it just me, or this game looks terrible?
Pal_Friendpatine: “Max Moral” sounds like a Ratchet and Clank character
Despoiler98: Yeah get that Destroyer!
Koshindan: It's just you. @dayman__s
Despoiler98: Is the U Wing armed?
Fu4ow: yes Ian is just flying support
HoloTheWiseWolf_: wwhat are you flying with today ian?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: controlls wise
Fu4ow: oooh nice shield noice
Fu4ow: noise*
Despoiler98: BACKSTAB Healthy!
Solid_Fuel: what is ian flying? an a-wing?
badpandabear: U Wing
Lysander_Gustav: Ian is flying a U-wing, which has support and healing abilities
Solid_Fuel: a ok
JadedCynic: seems like it, Cam
HoloTheWiseWolf_: this is like all the best parts off the old battelfront 2 refined and enhanced
MistahFixIt: Bonk
SkylerRingtail: Why does destroying an enemy system HURT your morale?
Despoiler98: bonk
PixelArtDragon: Boing!
JadedCynic: because 'morale' is an imprecise word to use for this sort of mechnic?
Despoiler98: Yeah I think they should call it like "momentum" or something cause its more about the flow of the battle
JadedCynic: ^^^
Sheepy1081: the AI in this game cheat imo
Pal_Friendpatine: @skylerringtail maybe so that one side can’t run away with the game?
Sheepy1081: like in Easy, they should be Easy, not just dunk on you so quickly
DeM0nFiRe: It is definitely noticable how the AI moves in weird ways, perfect orbits around the player while also always facing the lpayer
Pal_Friendpatine: Did Ian switch back to easy or is this still normal?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: DeM0nFiRe well there is a drift manuver in the game they may just be to good at it
Micsig: I mean the game does allow you stop and pivot, also drift
PixelArtDragon: @DeM0nFiRe Is that because they're AI or because TIE Fighters handle differently?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: Ties do handel difrently
HoloTheWiseWolf_: they are so agile
JadedCynic: @sheepy1081 @dem0nfire like the AI has Perfect precision - takes only two shots, and then turns away before the hits even connect, because the game engine knows they've already connected and will kill the player
Trogdoorthedoorinator subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 27 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Trogdoorthedoorinator! (Today's storm count: 57)
Rogue_07: Ian, when you're running away, can you shift power from weapons to shields and engines, or is that too finnicky?
JadedCynic: TIEs are MUCH more responsive to acceleration & heading changes than these big heavy fighters burdened with shields and hyperdrives. ;)
HoloTheWiseWolf_: so max engins isnt quite what you expect
HoloTheWiseWolf_: cause it just makes boos regcharge faster
HoloTheWiseWolf_: not make you faster overall
CleeKru: welcome raiders!!!! ... wait
PixelArtDragon: Damn, that raider is fast
Pal_Friendpatine: @rogue_07 I think he can also place shields front, rear, or even as well. Some real advanced abilities in this game really
HoloTheWiseWolf_: the game was made with hotas amounts of controll it seems and i love that
Sheepy1081: also the AI seem to have a ton of HP
JadedCynic: I mean, this mission ultimately does something I think I only ever did twice in the old TIE & Xwing games - bring down an capital ship
Lysander_Gustav: The puttys
Sheepy1081: i went into ranked fleet battles with other people and the difference is really noticeable
Fu4ow: Gms, or Balls
LurkerSpine: Zakus are awesome. They aren't shitty.
HoloTheWiseWolf_: Sheepy1081 more intense?
AshBurnem: That's no Zaku, boy. No Zaku.
Sheepy1081: @HoloTheWiseWolf_ they have so much more hp
Fu4ow: so it corrupts the missile targeting
HoloTheWiseWolf_: you can dumby fire missles as well
JadedCynic: yay, Mk14 torpedoes are simulated - nice historical perspective! :D
HoloTheWiseWolf_: dummy
Fu4ow: dumbfire, it's a shame about that name
Sheepy1081: like against a player their HP is pretty normal, then you got AI ships in AI fleet battles and they take like 7 seconds of continuous hits to actually kill them
HoloTheWiseWolf_: wonder if its to inflate there difficulty
JadedCynic: @Fu4ow well, unless your target is stationary, never chainging it's speed or heading, you really aren't going to get a hit...
Pal_Friendpatine: Ian will be getting the daily for sure at this rate!
Sheepy1081: well thing is, thats on easy difficulty
Despoiler98: bonk
Sheepy1081: that is not considered easy, not to mention they can just aimbot you
carpeamentum: Hi stream... I'm convinced I must be a bit out of it... I just looked over and read "assault star destroyer" as "Adult Star Destroyer"
akerasi: Killed By: Pilot Error
JadedCynic: Pilot Error OP; pls nerf
Fu4ow: @JadedCynic I mean that dumb is an ableist term
philippekav: intensify forward fire
JadedCynic: @Fu4ow yeah, well that too
CommanderPulsar: Say instead "unguided?"
HoloTheWiseWolf_: need a Bonk counter
JadedCynic: Ian, you're not like the AI - you can't just clip through the level
Sheepy1081: like you see that
Sheepy1081: kor korli literally survived that much of continuous fire
Fruan: Would it make sense to have some people permanently on fighter swatting?
DaSunao: When did dumb become ableist?
kalku__: wait , did that say tiltyhouse, or tiltyhouse?
carpeamentum: @Fu4ow genuine question... is there a better inverse to 'smart' available?
JadedCynic: @Fruan yeah, maybe a pair doing that (in wingman pair) and then the other three working on mission objectives
croisvoix1: Playing this game without a stick will be so weird if I get it

JadedCynic: @kalku__ 'tiltyhouse' is Ian's username
Fu4ow: @carpeamentum "smart" can itself be a bit ableist which makes alternates complicated
Mr_Horrible: "Resupplied a horrible goose" is a sentence I'm happy we can see in a video game
IOI681387: @croisvoix1 gamepad feels pretty good, I'm sure flight stick is the best but I picked up a controler for this (PC) and have really been enjoying it
DaSunao: How is smart ableist?!?!
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: !honk
Fu4ow: just general ideas about intelligence
JadedCynic: @Fu4ow yeah, "guided" and "unguided" are better, and IIRC they're current 'terminlolgy in the field' (i.e. ask Dix)
Fu4ow: which is why in cases like this more specific terms like "unguided" are preferred
Fu4ow: ha, jinx
MistahFixIt: This seems like a topic requiring more nuance than a fast-scrolling Twitch chat can provide...
JadedCynic: @Mr_Horrible IKR? :D
croisvoix1: @IOI681387 I just spent my formative years playing tie fighter badly with a stick
Serifina: I look away for two minutes... y'all, that conversation isn't appropriate for this chat.
DaSunao: @JadedCynic They're also single syllable which makes them almost impossible to change culturally
JadedCynic: Matt_LRR? We watched you get WRECKED there - ian had you targeted
carpeamentum: that may be fair for missiles but it isnt like that is the only space where smart/dumb labels exist to describe versions of tech with or without additive logic tech built in
HoloTheWiseWolf_: you just got macerated there ian
JadedCynic: @DaSunao funny, US military agencies already have - again, ASK @Dix
Mr_Horrible: oh interesting I've not seen that type of ship before. Is it from some supplemental material, or was it introduced in this game?
DeM0nFiRe: leozF
Mr_Horrible: the supply ship, I mean

akerasi: your fighters can absorb even more damage if you do good power/shields management. It's insane how tanky everything is in this game.

JadedCynic: @Mr_Horrible the U-Wing that we saw in Rogue One
CommanderPulsar: @Mr_Horrible the supply ship is a U-Wing from Rogue Squadron.
Mr_Horrible: eeenteresting
CommanderPulsar: er, Rogue One.
Mr_Horrible: "One Rogue Squadron" :p
DaSunao: Or an AO I guess, if I have to talk to an AO about bombs
IOI681387: Hit them with the pointy end of the missle
JadedCynic: but never check your documentation, heaven forbid :D
Lysander_Gustav: Oh no it's the open map again
JadedCynic: time for the shunning! :D
Mr_Horrible: might be then that you need an escort partner for bombing runs, to take out pursuit ships, while the bomber focusses its shields?
Blasteg: how do player survive those explosions
JadedCynic: yay, NO COVER!
Lithobraker: The pilot shortage is the same as the nursing shortage, it's prompted by poor pay and conditions for pilots, not a lack of supply
RatekStormcrow: Well I Microsoft Flightsimulator surely created a Joystick shortage ... I wanted a new one for this and elite dangerous...
DaSunao: Has chat seen the Monster Hunter movie trailer?
TheWanderingNomad: Why would you put that evil on us DaSunao?
JadedCynic: "He who runs away, lives to fight another day"
DaSunao: They made an isekai monster hunter movie
Mr_Horrible: how do you build morale mid-battle? Do airshow formations?
RealGamerCow: If you want a real deep dive, go look at people's KSP rigs, they look like full on spaceship control panels
Fu4ow: @Lithobraker thx
JadedCynic: @Mr_Horrible kill more of them than they do of us - that usualy works, but again, 'morale' isn't really a good term for that bar - maybe 'momentum of battle'?
TheWanderingNomad: I'm put to mind of Ace Combat Zero
JadedCynic: thanks cam! :D
DaSunao: Wait, when they break equipment does the bar go down? Or is it just they die on the run on the capitol ship and the bar goes down for that?
SquareDotCube: It's projectilicous!
Lithobraker: RealGamerCow or elite dangerous. The most intense KSPers I've seen often just go keyboard because they're scripting things in KOS
Mr_Horrible: jadedcynic ah, I see
ameliette: 'reaper' sounds like a bad name for a support ship :D was it something else elsewhere
Raiger: Reaper was also from Rogue One
JadedCynic: I'm not sure if that's the OFFICIAL term (in which case, dammit EA) or if it might just be a player-coined term for the meter?
JadedCynic: gee, that sounds like a feature that THE TUTORIAL SHOULD HAVE EXPLAINED TO US?
SeismicLawns: damn jem blessage
2S2T: who do we have squadroning today?
TheWanderingNomad: @2S2T - Ian, Cam, Matt, Ashton, and Andrew
2S2T: thanks!
TheWanderingNomad: No prob, bob
Lord_ZYRK: Matt Wiggins specifically
JadedCynic: @2S2T we have Ian hosting, with Cam as "BabelLibrarian", Matt_LRR, Ashton and Andrew as "a horrible goose"
Raiger: @JadedCynic I can't recall it may explain it somewhere...unfortunately the tutorial isn't really just the prologue, it's the ENTIRE single player...
HoloTheWiseWolf_: how much crew do you thin it takes to fly the raider
Raiger: There's features that I learned several missions in that were just like "huh, that's useful..."
ameliette: wasnt raider the one in bf2 campaign? seemed to fly with five or six people in there
Karfsma778: @HoloTheWiseWolf_ Eh, probably a dozen or so?
JadedCynic: @HoloTheWiseWolf_ in terms of game balance and function "same as the corellian corvette" - maybe 12-20? including engineering and gun operators?
Raiger: Yeah, Raider was in BF2
Karfsma778: It's Corvetter sized

DaSunao: A dozen?!?! No way.
Raiger: Raider was actually created by Fantasy Flight Games...and I still kinda don't like the design personally
HoloTheWiseWolf_: i think you realy gota push when you have the chance
TheWanderingNomad: @HoloTheWiseWolf_ - According to Wookieepedia 15
2S2T: i dont know much about this game is this online or pve?
Karfsma778: Both!
JadedCynic: now, not "TIE Raider" the 'raiders' that the game throws at the players to attack their flagship
Raiger: They're doing coop currently, but also a large focus on PVP
SquareDotCube: Oh, that bomber's been aided by a reader
HoloTheWiseWolf_: cool so ian killed 15 people in one go
Loonatic93: Are we talking like Pat Benetar, "Invinceible?"
Karfsma778: Also, do we know if your corpse slamming into ashi does damage to them or not
TheWanderingNomad: @HoloTheWiseWolf_ - Minimum. That's not including any troops or support units onboard
LurkerSpine: Okay, are they just continually getting paired against the same opponents?
JadedCynic: @2S2T @Raiger but apart from the tutorial (8hr) it's ALL online, natch :P
Karfsma778: @LurkerSpine they're against AI
Loonatic93: They are doing AI battles. So yes!
LurkerSpine: Oh
Lithobraker: I'm reminded of the troops who complained that ammunition didn't have sufficient stopping power, when in fact they were missing...
JadedCynic: @LurkerSpine this is coop vs AI
Inkompetence: Are there two levels of weapon charge as well as shield charge?
KenKopin: 90% Ice Cream Get. :)
BlackIsis: tie fighter...shields?
Raiger: Yeah, the red weapon charge becomes brighter for the increased charge level
TheWanderingNomad: Yea, my inner Star Wars nerd is screaming to BlackIsis
JadedCynic: @BlackIsis can be buffed by TIE Reapers with temp shields
Karfsma778: Dis down, C is *hurting*
Magnamus0: excuse me what now on a tie fighter?
Lithobraker: Always primary the Logi
JadedCynic: @Magnamus0 a temporary teammate buff by a support TIE Reaper
Despoiler98: Follow that Corvette!
Jan____: hes in multiplayer right now ?
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: }-o-{ =====
TheWanderingNomad: Stay on target....stay on target!
Serifina: This is multiplayer, yes
Mr_Horrible: Vaaaax! mizzRage
JadedCynic: @Jan____ co-op with 4 others against AI enemies
RomanGoro: Can you kill the Star destroyer without killing the other ships first?
JadedCynic: @RomanGoro nope
Lithobraker: language! Kappa
TheWanderingNomad: It' snot Desert Bus yet :D
RealGamerCow: They seem to be doing better this time?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: RomanGoro maby if its posible to survive all that turret fire
Mr_Horrible: the missiles politely waiting for Andrew to leave the hanger
Karfsma778: Ian sto flying into the ion storm
Micsig: you left map boundary
Loonatic93: I find the "catch up" mechanic. This morale system, intreguing.
Lysander_Gustav: oh well
JadedCynic: Cam - you probably do, but not for any appreciable amount
Jan____: hes got infinite lives ??
Loonatic93: Respawns.
TehAmelie: does the UI say to destroy the star destroyer or is its name Destroy? either would be funny
JadedCynic: @Loonatic93 'morale' is a kinda weak term for it; I think of it as "the momentum of the battle'
HoloTheWiseWolf_: you know what would be cool, elite dangerous but starwars
TheWanderingNomad: @JadedCynic - The tide of battle?
JadedCynic: ^^^
JadedCynic: another nice one
Mr_Horrible: TehAmelie I wouldn't be surprised if the empire is that unimaginative :p
Despoiler98: do those TIEs have shields?
JadedCynic: those AI tie pilots are such campers
BlackIsis: Continuing an attack run on a star destroyer with no shields seems inadvisable
NarishmaReborn: good thing we have like infinite of these hings
TheWanderingNomad: Gah, I have to keep manually checking that I'm not on Discord
Loonatic93: @JadedCynic I just like how when you are low on [insert mechanic here] then you go on defense. Which means you will ultimately kill more of the opponent, raising the resource quickly and allowing you to go on offense.
JadedCynic: @Despoiler98 temporary buff by a teammate in a "TIE Reaper" like the U-Wing on our side
Jan____: cam he fly all kinds of ships ?
Despoiler98: oh ok
Loonatic93: I'ts a good way of giving both sides a chance.
JadedCynic: @Loonatic93 exactly, it's a great mechanic - but it's not a great name for it. you get buffs if you max out the meter
SquareDotCube: maybe this just me but I wonder if the emplacements just have a bit too much accuracy
TheWanderingNomad: Also I must have missed a James stream - has he once agian bet to buy everyone i cream?
Toucansuit: more or less
Micsig: Morale is used in most grand or other strategy games with that meaning, high morale army more willing to act aggressively, low morale to retreat.
Lord_ZYRK: !icream
LRRbot: James in his hubris has challenged chat to give 10 million channel points so he'll go get Ice cream for the rest of LRR! You can contribute up to 2000 points per stream (you'll need to refresh between streams) so get cracking!
DaSunao: @TheWanderingNomad This has been going on all week in al the streams
JadedCynic: @SquareDotCube I begin to think that's not turrets ON the ISD, but the AI tie pilots just stationary camping their defense
BlackIsis: You should have gotten a reading up or down...!
Toucansuit: was surpised how fast we filled the ice cream meter
Karfsma778: Unless you get lucky on a bombing run
TheWanderingNomad: @DaSunao - Ah that explains it, this is the first stream I've been able to catch this week :D
TheMadPunter: How about taking out the shield generators first, so you don't have to keep knocking them down over and over?
Lysander_Gustav: so taking care of the adds seems to be the most important part of the match?
SquareDotCube: Was that... Was that the hangar?
Mr_Horrible: crowd control seems to be integral, yeah
JadedCynic: @Lysander_Gustav in best dogfighting tradition of Star Wars, yeah :)
Serifina: ISDs are, uh, floating fortresses. They're extremely durable.
Despoiler98: Do the Nebulons attack the SD cause that would do serious damage but it looks like they just sit there
TheWanderingNomad: A Nebulon isn't really built for slugging it out with an ISD
JadedCynic: @Serifina yeah, IIRC in both the X-Wing + all expansions I only took out two of them
RomanGoro: The Nebulons' mission is protecting your capital ship
Despoiler98: No but 2 of them can lend support
JadedCynic: @Despoiler98 nah, a frigate against a BATTLESHIP (I'll never forgive Lucas for that misleading class-name)
Despoiler98: in Armada they have intense forward guns and shields they are meant to hit and run Cap hips
Jan____: why did he crash ?
Magnamus0: killed by "pilot error" LUL
SeismicLawns: Man, Pilot error's good at this game
HoloTheWiseWolf_: they got a full squad out so be carfull
Mysticman89: bombs in space gravity are wild conceptually
hyaundredneer: gg, rebellion; empire is legion(...apparently.)
JadedCynic: @SeismicLawns Pilot Error OP - must be hax, plz nerf/ban
Serifina: @JadedCynic You definitely don't take out many. The *vast* majority of combat in XW and TF games are against other fighter craft or *smaller* capital ships.
mitomanox: The pilot today is Mr. Dapper! lrrIAN
hyaundredneer: oh, cool. hera's voice lines.
Despoiler98: I guess I'm just looking at this matchup through the lense of Armada which is the tabletop Cap ship game where the fighters dont do as much as this game
TheMadPunter: @JadedCynic O you mean because it's not technically a "destroyer"?
JonnyGlitch: Hey Ian! Hi Chat!
Jan____: do the enemy fighters respawn too ?
Serifina: The truth is that in general, a fighter craft just doesn't carry enough firepower to do much to Star Destroyers. They're terrifying for a reason
Karfsma778: Yes
JonnyGlitch: Also Cam and others by the sound!
Toucansuit: "Jem Blessage" is a hell of a name
hyaundredneer: oof!
JadedCynic: @Serifina yeah, maybe take out some freighters, or some assualt transports, or disable same but not big
Loonatic93: I'm just upset that the Corvettes are neither little, nor red.
Serifina: Exactly
TheMadPunter: Again, shield generators?
Mr_Horrible: Star Wars Squadrons; or; Jem Blessage Has A Bad Day
JadedCynic: @Toucansuit they were fighting against "Brian Blessage" and "Jem Moreso" in an earlier match :D
mitomanox: Canadian accent so soothing lrrDOTS lrrFINE
Toucansuit: Ha! nice
Karfsma778: ooh, we still have our Cruisers
JadedCynic: props to the devs for that naming - seems kinda canon naming style + injokes of irl MP usernames :)
Despoiler98: LOL cam
hyaundredneer: gogogo!
Despoiler98: mmmmmm delicious HEALTHY
JadedCynic: ahhhh, never change Cam :D
Jan____: why is the red bar moving left ?
JadedCynic: our ai fighters are dying?
hyaundredneer: Dew it, Ian! U HALF 2 DU IT NAAAOOO!!!
Loonatic93: Which way should it move?
JadedCynic: increase white and decrease red would be good for us
Despoiler98: Yeah definitely gotta all go in on the SD At once
Jan____: the bar under the timer
Zanzabar_: Did Ian ever get his sticks working?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: Zanzabar_ sadly no
JadedCynic: "Han'll get those shields down, we've GOT to give him more time!"
TheMadPunter: @Jan____ That's the "morale bar" and determines the phases of the battle; destroy more enemy ships and it fills up white, get destroyed and it starts filling up red
JadedCynic: IIRC he got the stick working, but not the throttle?
Karfsma778: TWO
Zanzabar_: @HoloTheWiseWolf_ ah oh well.
TehAmelie: i'd suggest throwing asteroids on it, but who knows how that works in Star Wars space
Karfsma778: just OKE it
Karfsma778: *poke
RealGamerCow: wow the momentum bar is very importat
StarFreak359: Attack the weak spots for massive damage?
Loonatic93: So, in the lore... What are the two globes on top of the Star Destroyer?
MyrddintheWizard: So Attack the weak point for massive damage?
HoloTheWiseWolf_: are the still reading as throttel and throttel?
JadedCynic: so apparently ramming doesn't do much at all?
hyaundredneer: Me in response: probably surrender...?
BlackIsis: @Loonatic93 Shield generators
TheWooglie: Loonatic93 shield generators
Loonatic93: Ah! Cool! Thanks!
DeM0nFiRe: Trying to active tank, this isn't even LUL
DeM0nFiRe: EVE*
JadedCynic: Okay, you wanna get technical? Those globes are SUPPLEMENTARY shield generators that cover the superstructure (the main shield gen is shaped to cover the wedge-shaped hell)
Loonatic93: They ate Matt. And now they're gonna eat me!!!!!!!!!
TheMadPunter: Can you dummy fire your missiles in this game? Just straight line with no guidance
MWGNZ: TheMadPunter you can
JadedCynic: fire unguided with no missile lock, yes
Lord_ZYRK: JadedCynic Wedge-Shaped Hell was my nickname in high school Kappa
Micsig: You seem to absolutely need a wingman to beat the AI fighter defenses
JadedCynic: for this sort of thing, yeah, just pip as soon as reloaded
SquareDotCube: good lord that perfect lockon by AI, they cheat as much as the pilot AI from the original Battlefront 2
JadedCynic: @Lord_ZYRK *hull but NICE SeemsGood
Jan____: is the multiplayer outside coop the same or different ?
JadedCynic: @SquareDotCube yeah, it seems the devs decided to max the AI so that it REALLY hones your skill, so that MP with meat-players seems MUCH easier :D
Micsig: @Jan____ There is this and deathmatch
