Here's my top ten pilots.  When ever I put a list together, these pilots always come to mind.

  1. Wedge - He just got better Because of all the Stealth devices.
  2. Han - When ever I build lists now, I have to ask, can it take down Han?
  3. Horton - Because I like him
  4. Turr - Moving after an attack is just fun, and very cinematic
  5. Dark Curse - He's the most frustrating ship to shoot at, so he's on the list because I hate him so much
  6. Soontir - Another very Hard target to hit
  7. Biggs - Forcing your opponent to fire on the guy you want is really powerful.
  8. Lando - His ability works so well with friendly ships.
  9. Howlrunner - The Queen of the Swarm has to mentioned
  10. Krassis - Of all the Firespray Pilots, I like him best

This one is a tough one, because certainly there are good individual pilots, and there are good squad pilot leaders, and there are good squad pilot followers.

So I'm going to attack this one a little differently.

Top 10 Rebel Pilots:

1. Han Solo
2. Wedge Antilles
3. Dutch Vander
4. Lando Calrissian
5. Tycho Celchu
6. Biggs Darklighter
7. Gold Squadron Pilot
8. Rookie Pilot
9. Green Squadron Pilot
10. Garven Dries

Top 10 Imperial Pilots
1. Academy Pilot (yes, I'm putting it at #1)
2. Howlrunner
3. Turr Phennir
4. Bounty Hunter
5. Darth Vader
6. Dark Curse
7. Backstabber
8. Mauler Mithel
9. Alpha Squadron Pilot
10. Tempest Squadron Pilot
 

So, my top 10 pilot list is:

1. Academy Pilot-there are very few wave 1 imperial squads without one, and for 12 points, they still find their way into squads. Best squad pilot follower in the game
2. Han Solo-the #1 best individual pilot in the game
3. Wedge Antilles- the #1A best individual pilot in the game, and he's always the #1 target
4. Howlrunner- best squad leader in the game, especially for wave 1. She is always the #1 target.
5. Dutch Vander- best Rebel squad leader, and was in nearly all wave 1 3-ship Rebel builds
6. Turr Phennir- one of the most fun pilots to play because of his ability
7. Lando Calrissian- a very good Rebel squad leader, but using him effectively is very tricky.
8. Tycho Celchu- his ability coupled with his maneuver dial is sick, and he's very difficult to kill
9. Bounty Hunter- my personal favorite Firespray. hey, this is my list after all. :P
10. Biggs Darklighter- was very prevalent in wave 1, and still is very useful in wave 2.


The thread for my Let em Fly campaign. Always looking for military overseas addresses to send packages to.

Ummmm Mr. Goodtrips, I don't have a pilot card called me?  I'll gladly give you the vote I guess.

My top ten pilot card list:

  1. Wedge Antilles - If he's on the board, he's the priority kill target
  2. Howlrunner - a priority target, even over other choices with better attack dice
  3. Turr Phennir - fascinating, deadly pilot ability
  4. Biggs Darklighter - a tremendous lightning rod, a great tool for list building
  5. Backstabber - a poor man's interceptor
  6. Dutch Vander - fantastic action economy with a great action
  7. Rookie X-wing - inexpensive, survivable (enough) and a great gun
  8. Academy Pilot - the cheapest of the cheap, a crappy ship but great for its cost
  9. Chewbacca - his "no crits" ability, combined with 360 fire arc, give opponents no easy options
  10. Saber Squadron Pilot - I wanted to include a cheap interceptor, because three attack dice are awesome.  However, I couldn't decide between the Alpha, Avenger and Saber pilots - each has an advantage at their point cost.  I chose Saber because the pilot talet choices provide some flexibility and/or power, even though it's at a higher cost.

Honorable mentions - any of the Bounty Hunter ships, Darth Vader, Green Squadron Pilot, Han Solo, Soontir Fel.
