iam not playin rebels but i would say that the X-wing is the best ship from da rebels. it has many named pilots, good stats like 3/2/3/2 - A/E/H/S, a good dial and in his upgrade bar the proton and astromech slot that can change his role from tank to supporter and such.

 

X-WINGS ROCK!

It's too bad the HWK didn't have a natural two firepower 360, I'd have taken it here instead.

But, seeing my options?

Despite not having using it, the E-Wing. No brainer.

Right out of the box, E-Wing hands down. My favorite though is the X-wing as I find it to be a versatile work horse for the Rebels.

I'm with you Boss Red. It's a GAME. PLAY it, have fun, don't overthink it.

E-Wing, just when you thought the A-Wing was the only rebel ship to get 1 shotted by a proton Bomb.

Yeah man thanks for sharing buddie.

:)

 

I (We) get paid to do my(our) job(s), not to enjoy playing a badass game based on a BELOVED SCIENCE FANTASY WORLD.

 

Why would anybody want to make a game that is almost perfect and thus extremely amiable to play, into a complex scenario that is warped into a frustrating constant problem laden debacle which needs to be fixed?

 

Then once they have Flubbed it up, whenever the FFG money grubbing monsters make anything that is cool and fun to play they will scream "Broken!"

 

"We got to fix that!"

 

My Don Know.

:lol:

 

This game is wonderful and damn near perfect... yes PERFECT.

I can think of only six items I feel need to be adjusted, no wait in fact there are only five, because Munitions Failsafe is in the game now.

Yeah, if I wanted that level of aggravation I would have kept playing Warhammer 40,00 or Warmahordes. I want something that's fun, fast and furious. SWXWM fits the bill.

Just remember everyone, in reality we're all just pushing around a bunch of toy soldiers in a sandbox. So like life, lets not take it too seriously, because no one gets out of either one alive.

At least not if you're a Rebel player... :)

My job is evaluation--the systematic determination of the merit, worth, or significance of an object (program, policy, product, etc.) So answering questions like "What's the best x?" is exactly what I get paid to do.

I have no idea why anyone would want to turn X-wing into a frustrating, problem-laden debacle. It is, however, a complex system created by the interaction of dozens of discrete elements, and working to better understand puzzles like that is something I enjoy doing.

Like I said upthread, different definitions of "fun". I'll leave you alone, now.

The answer is Falcon or B wing. In today's Meta it's Falcon though.

You do not bother me buddie, and I actually read most of your postings.

I played GW games for ten years and man it bothered me at the time as I watched it turn into a crap-feast run by actually EVIL proprietors.

 

Oh well, that all ended for me in 2000... DONE!

 

How about this new X-WING game huh?

I don't need context to tell me that a firespray is a better overall ship then the advanced. Or that a stock Bwing is vastly superior to a Ywing.

Yes, every ship perfoms better in certain situations. But before each game you don't know the CONTEXT of what will take place in battle.

So you bring ships which you feel do the best job in numerous situations and context. Ie, the "best" ships.



I feel like the falcon is the best ship. But its a bit unfair in this conversation because its a named.

Close call, but I would go with:

1) Bwing
2) Ewing
3) Xwing
4) Z95

However, I think upgrades should be allowed. Every ship shares the same upgrades so you don't have the balance issues like you do with named pilot abilities.

Shuttles and HWK are both amazing ships that rely on their customization and ability to tailor itself to any role. Discounting upgrades does both a huge disservice.

I agree, but for this particular topic I did not want builds, just names of basic goodies.

You know what I mean. We upgrade the weaknesses out of the ships because it is fun.

 

That is it's own topic... kinda.
