Let me start out with some background info. I'm a newer player, only played a couple 100 pt games after playing the beginner's game of 2 TIEs vs an X-Wing (the one recommended by the core set) 5 times (with 5 different people). I don't have anywhere local that runs organized play, this is just something I play with friends. Right now, I am the only one in the group that owns ANY components.
Assuming we stick with 100 pt games, I'm looking at the options and just not seeing why I would run more than 1 Y-Wing or TIE Advanced. Now we have already mentioned going bigger than 100 points, but we wanna get some more games under out belt so that the pace is a little quicker. If large games become regular, then I probably will go out and get more. However, looking at the 100 pt build total, is there any draw to multiple Y-Wings and TIE Advanceds?
I guess what I am asking for is am I missing anything? What are some lists and strategies that utilize multiple Y-Wings and TIE Advanceds? The Y-Wing just seems too cumbersome and offensively weak to warrant taking up half your squad. Advanceds I have less experience with as a majority of my limited play time has been with the Rebels, but looking at them now they seem to be too expensive for the fire power they bring, again wanting me to shy away from using half my build on them.
So what kinds of things have you guys done with multiples of Y-Wings or TIE Advanceds? Has it been successful? Has it been fun to play? Am I missing something?
If it matters, here is my total count:
- 3 X-Wings
- 1 Y-Wing
- 3 A-Wings
- 1 YT-1300
- 5 TIE FIghters
- 1 TIE Advanced
- 3 TIE Interceptors
- 1 FIrepray 31
I plan to get at least 1 more X-Wing and TIE Fighter for now, though I feel like more options my friends and I would use in a 100 pt game are available.
