I know the ship has sailed and the rules for ships are what they are, but does the Y-Wing feel like a Y-wing?
Granted, in the movies all they ever did was get blown up (I'm hiiiiiiit), but in the x-wing games, once you got the hang of them they weren't too bad. Mind you Tie Advanced zoomed around them like crazy and Interceptors were a real pain, but if you were a good pilot, Y-Wings weren't the death boxes they are in our miniatures game and sometimes you had to take them for the ion cannon until the b-wing showed up. Even after b-wing, I sometimes would take a y-wing out for a spin just for fun.
So in a perfect world shouldn't the Y-Wing have had 2 agility dice and be just really slow? Take a look at this.
Maybe limit them even further by taking away their ability to turn 90 degrees at speed 3 and give them only 2 shields?
What do you guys think, does this feel more like a y-wing to you (versatile fighter bomber) and less like a death box?
