Agree with Roy I do.
If you were not going to take the 360 firing arc option, then you should probably take an X-wing instead.
Probably? Without the turret, the Y-Wing is AWFUL. Even when attacking first, the Y-wing (costing 18 points) loses to a TIE Fighter (costing 12 points) the vast majority of battles as long as the Imperial player isn't awful. Even though I have numbers backing my assertion up, I don't like sharing specifics.
I don't think I would enjoy playing games with you too much ShadowJak, but I won't share specifics on why.
Don't be offended. I just don't like sharing specifcs because the numbers I have are in an obtuse looking set of data tables that aren't easy to explain or even paste into these forums.
First off, you're wrong. Second off, you're being pretty rude.
When he said a one straight isn't a green maneuver for the TIE Fighter, he was right. He did not say he WASN'T moving one forward, he was saying that when the TIE moved forward, it didn't remove the stress token, read forum THREADS more clearly. Furthermore, a Y-wing without an ion cannon can still be useful, Dutch Vander is a great teammate for proton torpedo teams. Free target lock for his partners? That let's his partners focus, and use their ion canons more effectively.
Don't be so sure of yourself that you need to put others down, especially when it'll come back to bite you.
