Dang, I was really hoping for a green hard 2. Still not bad and it still has plenty of green. Throw on some advanced sensors and get good with barrel roll and you may just have a meaner B-Wing. Awesome.


You can get the green 2 turn with a simple 1 point R2 astromech, if it's important to you.
Be seeing you.

Not having a green 2 turn or any 1 turn is a shame but understandable as it would make it a powerhouse. The lack of green bank 1 is disappointing.
I suppose you can't have everything though.

For 1 point R2 Astromech will solve that problem for you. The only downside is that it uses up a droid slot but its not a significant loss since the E-wing also has enough upgrade slots to make it a beast.

A good point - I suppose I should have stated I had plans for other things than the R2 Astro in that spot! Can't have my cake and eat it though!

I found this picturee floating around the internet

If this dial is accurate, it will be the first ship in the game with all 5 forwards.
For that matter, the only maneuver it lacks in its entire dial is a 1 turn.

So, Blackmoon Squadron Pilot. Is that information we already knew?

Not bad. A bit anticlimactic.

Just like the rebels themselves.

that forward 1 / bank 1 + R2 astromech + PTL into boost / roll is going to be a real killer in dogfights

Yes, not that it really matters since it is only the name of a generic pilot, estimated PS3 29pts base no EPT I believe

Yup, this is originally from a post on NOVA Squadron's facebook page.  One of their local store TOs opened the Imdar Alpha stuff and posted it.  Same with the Tactician and Decoy spoilers.

I can't seem to find this post. Is it not this Facebook page? I also skimmed the Tactician and Decoy thread for a source to no avail.

 

I would love confirmation, by having a source, that this is real.

My guess is the source is real, but they won't say who it was because speculation is they prematurely opened (and then leaked) the contents of their Imdar Alpha tournament kits, and if FFG could track down the leaking store would not allow them to host such an event in the future

I actually like this dial. Having 2 Koiograns -and- a 1-5 forward is good in my books. Since I usually fly A-Wings often, this can keep up with them without much difficulty... I really like it. :3

I'm pleased with this dial. Very good one, but it doesn't steal the show from other rebel ships.

 

My fear was that they gave it too many greens, it would have been a real pain with R2D2. 


I'm a french native player so sometimes, some expressions or meanings might be lost in translation. I mean no disrespect.

Pretty solid dial, which finally settles the E-Wing as a well rounded and effective ship.

 

Actually, I like this dial much more than the defender's one.

I think it may have already happened as the original posts have been taken down.

It was never Bloodmoon.  One of the squad editors got it wrong and propogated bad information.  Blackmoon Squadron was clearly established in the EU.

Rebels finally  gets something able to keep up with A-wing, for massed flank attacks. After Rebel aces and cheaper A-wings it will be force to be reconned with

It does seem in between the X-Wing and A-Wing dials like they said, but it's closer to the X-Wing's dial than the A-Wing's which might be disappointing for some people.
