If you only had three ship types for the faction(s) you play, what would they be?

 

Mine are Alliance:  X-Wing, B-Wing, and Falcon. Empire: Tie Fighter, Tie Interceptor, and Firespray.

 

What are your "Must Haves?"

STAR WARS is far more than three thirty year old films. FFG intends for X-Wing to thrive, thus it will be more also... PERIOD.

Lately I've been digging on Bomber, Lambda, Interceptor for the Imperials.

 

For the Rebels maybe X, B, HWK.

 

If you can't tell I've got a soft spot in my heart for ships that are deemed the weakest link.

 

Except the Advanced.

 

Burn it.

Probably going to look similar as with most people.

 

Scum

1. B-wing

2. Falcon

3. X-wing (Y-wing is close behind)

 

Imps

1. TIE Interceptor

2. TIE Fighter

3. Shuttle (Again, Firespray is very close and may edge ahead soon)

You don't need to strip your miniatures, painting over is fine. No, there should not be a fourth faction, three is the magic number for countering flavor lists and to break up faction distribution. Someone else has likely thought up and posted your amazing new build, so you don't need to stroke your ego when reposting it. The prequels sucked and so would a game based on it. YES, there should be a Custom Forum for terrain and repaints! Moving on...

Imperial: interceptor, Firespray, tie fighter

 

Rebel: X Wing, B wing, A Wing

 

I wasn't really sure on the last rebel one, but I say A wing even though I don't play it much just because it's the most maneuverable rebel ship.

 

Still don't beat that interceptor though

Imperial: TIE interceptor, TIE fighter, Firespray-31

Rebel: X-wing, Y-wing, HWK-290

 

Definitely a tough question to answer, and my opinion is very likely to change when I get my hands on the Wave 4 ships.

For my picks I'd have to say A-wing, B-wing and YT for the Rebels and TIE Bomber, TIE Interceptor and Firespray-31.

Rebs,

1 x-wing
2 y-wing
3 Falcon

imperials
1 Interceptor
2 Firespray
3 Bomber

When I first saw the title I thought you asked about Falcons. Picking three for the Rebs is easy, until Wave 4 these are my a Rebel go to ships. With the Imps it is grader the Lambda is close to my heart, but I am comming to really like the firespray. Same with bombers and the good ole ln. I love them both, but that twin hull just looks so dang cool...

Interceptors though.. I loved them before aces, now I have a hard time not flying them.

This is a tough choice. I have to balance between fun level, thematic ships, and what has the most replay-ability (X-wings have many more pilots than B-wings, for example).

 

Rebels: X-wing, A-wing, Y-wing.

Empire: TIE Fighter, TIE Interceptor, TIE Bomber.

 

I think those 6 ships would offer a wide range of options to both factions, plus they are all pretty good. The loss of B-wings hits the Rebels pretty hard, but the X-wing is a fine substitute.

Nice replies. I am happy to see that we love X-Wings and Tie Interceptors. They are the best looking ships in the entire game IMO.

:lol:

Exactly!

Rebels:

X-Wing
Y-Wing

Imps:
Whatever just not the Advanced!

I mean i like supposedly weaker ships like Y-Wings and make them shine. I like Gold Ionwings and Dutch a lot too. But the Advanced i really don't see any use for them, except Vader and then only if i really am in the mood... But no i will still take some more Fighters for the points!

Pre Wave 4?

 

Rebels:

1) X-Wing

2) B-Wing

3) YT-1300

 

Imperial:

1) Firespray-31

2) TIE Fighter

3) TIE Interceptor

 

I really love the HWK, but I think it falls short of this list because ORS is a thing.

Being weird with my response...

 

B wing

Y wing 

A wing

 

 

The only thing the X does better than the B is the named pilots.  Otherwise I'd take the BR and the 8 health every day.  The Y is too great of a resource for it to be sitting on as many people's shelves as it currently is...  ICT, R3A2, and 8 health... need I say more?  And then the A is the best closer in the game imo.  While some would argue that the /in is better, I say the 2 shields and the extra health give a strong advantage to the A wing.  F+E, and with Boost action, means that there'll only be R1 shots if you want them, so with a 3 dice max, and an evade token, the expected dmg is .3, and it can't exceed 2, so no chance of a 1 shot.
