@Jo Jo played with a version of your suggested list without Jan using Wes with Predator instead, the double X's dished out some hurt, R7 is class at getting people to not shoot you and the A's did what they do and out flanked the enemy. While I did miss the ion turret for the control just being more aggressive was awesome. The only real draw back is this whole PS 3 thing but I just don't see opportunist working with anything that is much higher?
Cool, I'm glad you had some success. I like using Wes instead, its probably more of a competitive list than using Jan. Jan's probably more fun though. Yeah... Opportunist works best on lower PS pilots and you can't get much lower than 3 and still run it. Big drawback is hoping the A-wings are still alive to use it and have a decent shot. I'll definitely have to try this with Wes.
I like that for the same points as a Rookie X-wing, you get a Green pilot that shoots one PS higher, has boost, can use the Evade action, and has a way better dial. The only drawbacks are that you don't always get to trigger Opportunist and shoot with 3 attack and you have 1 less hull. Not huge when you consider you get an extra agility die.
Quick question, would Opportunist add more dice to secondaries? If so, there's potential to chuck 6 dice homing missiles with Jan's help. Or, God forbid, Clusters.
I'm pretty sure it does. It says (if you meet the conditions on the target) you get to take a stress and add an additional dice to your attack roll. It doesn't say add +1 to your attack value or anything like that. So I am pretty sure you can add it to secondary weapons. The problem though is your A-wings get crazy expensive with missiles... No Chadaarn then.
