It's impossible to answer without defining some criteria for "best".

I would stay based on the results from Regionals that the YT-1300's stock has risen greatly since wave 4's release.  That would be my vote without a doubt!

In a 1:1 duel without upgrades it beats everything.

X-wing is played over a series of game rounds. Turn is a type of maneuver.

You walk into a store with all the Rebel ships and plenty of money in your pocket.

You are going to buy one ship and one ship only to make your collection as good as it can be for you.

There it is, period.

 

Which?

Hmm, either yt-1300 or e-wing.

If you could give the a wing the refit, I would say it is the best though.

4 A-wings, 2 E-Wings, 6 X-wings, 2 Y-wings, 3 B-wing, 1 Z-95, 1 HWK-290, 1 YT-1300, 1 YT-2400, 1 GR-75, 1 CR90

1 Decimator, 3 TIE Fighters {o{} |o| {}o}

Favorite Lists: The B's (Oh God Not the B's!), Opticore

Well, if I'm only buying one ship, then I guess it's just for target practice. So, I would say the HWK-290.  ^_^

I'd say the B-Wing is the best Rebel ship, if not a close second to the YT-1300

I'd go for the X or the B, love both of them to death. Cant go wrong with 3 attack dice and Astromechs and system slots are both awesome! (though the systems could use some more options)

If I could only buy 1 ship, then it would have to be the Falcon.  No other ship is as cool.

I don't play rebels but a close friend of mine does, and hands down Etahn has produced better results even with no upgrades than any other I've seen.

If we're doing the standard "basic pilot, best ship for the points" metric as the imperial thread, I'll take an E-wing.
