Hey all!
Got in a game with a buddy tonight, using a pair of Y-Wings with ion turrets.  Did they pay off?  Come on by and give it a read (and give the eye candy a look!)
Thanks for coming by!

nice. gr8 to see some more people posting reports.

i think most imperial players that use intercepters and tie-fighters really respect the power of ion cannons which tend to downgrade the intercepter/ties incredible agility to merely average :)

Agreed. I'd like to think you wouldn't get more than one hit past an interceptor's defence most of the time anyway, so the area-arc coverage of Y-wings makes them a superb craft against 'ceptors because there just aren't any blind spots to hide in.


Superb flying with the rookie, too.

Great use of the K-Turn, so many people are afraid of using it because of the stress token, but if it gets you out of a fire arc and then allows you a shot back it is a powerful tool.


It seems so many players think that not having an action is so bad you must avoid it.

Liking the report, the photos made the story flow. I have made that hung-ho mistake once before as well on the first go, going for target locks instead of being cautious, I won't be doing it again!
