  1. Past hour
  2. The Rule of Eleven; my simian intellect just can't grok it.
  3. Haven't had a chance to try this yet but could be fun...or could be horrible. Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Obi-Wan Kenobi - 70 •Obi-Wan Kenobi - Guardian of the Republic (53) R2 Astromech (4) Battle Meditation (13) V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper - 32 Gold Squadron Trooper - (25) Proton Rockets (7) V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper - 32 Gold Squadron Trooper - (25) Proton Rockets (7) V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper - 32 Gold Squadron Trooper - (25) Proton Rockets (7) V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper - 32 Gold Squadron Trooper - (25) Proton Rockets (7) Total: 198/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder
  4. Ha! Same here. *Laughs in collision detector* I always bring 3 gas cloud for that express purpose now.
  5. If I was a jedi, I would have a gun arm with a light bayonet.
  6. Naboo Royal Starship. The J-type 327 Nubian Starship from Episode I that gave birth to R2-D2, which at 76 meters long would most likely be an Epic-sized ship: Naboo Royal Cruiser. If that's not confusing enough, whoever was in charge of Star Wars ship designations decided to call this one the J-type Diplomatic Barge. This is the thing that got blown up at the beginning of Episode II, and is also probably epic in scale: The fly af H-type Nubian Yacht, also from Episode II, which could easily be a large-base ship (it's only slightly longer than a VCX-100): For Episode III we're back to yet another J-type, this time a Star Skiff. This one doesn't have an official Star Wars databank entry, so... ??? At any rate, it's wider than the H-type is long, but still checks in under 50 meters, so more likely to be scaled down to fit a large base than scaled up to fit Epic: Edit: Ninja'd, but posted anyway, because I enjoy shiny things
  7. Sure, maybe they can do that by turn 3 or 4 but the game has probably been decided by then. You'll lose half your corps units by that point in the game.
  8. It's so useless I don't take it at zero points. I might and -1 points, though.
  9. I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm entirely unfamiliar with the garrote chrono, particularly since I expect it is in the spy sourcebook, which I have (currently away from books). I used the following thread for inspiration:
  10. Basically the only strong uses of it are a: blocking a torpedo shot by stripping the lock and b: removing a Reinforce. i've used it for the latter on Maul, which is useful because he still gets a primary shot,a nd everyone else gets shots too, but mostly it's still a completely useless upgrade.
  11. based on the most recent data, it looks like the real question is what does not win against this list!
  12. He certainly showed it here. The gentleman doth protest too much. "How often the angry man rages denial of what his inner self is telling him." That bolded part are patently false, based on his own internal thoughts that we get to read. He thinks, because his emotions operate differently from those of the people he knows, that he has perfect control of them, when his every action to date has proven that untrue. As for his skill... whatever skill he has, clarity of vision isn't part of it. At no point do we see him really grasping the bigger picture- he inevitably lets himself get bogged down in minutiae. Moreover, he could easily have found an opportunity to calm matters, rather than exacerbate them. It would have cost him nothing to try- Taka's there as a supplicant. But he indulged himself. He also seems to think the cracking mask of Crane preeminence must be maintained even though that preeminence is currently in absolute tatters- heck, look at the Clan letter. He can list enemies, but the only allies he can cobble up as worthy of mention are a Minor Clan. Moreover, it wasn't just the jade he turned down. He shot down every proposal Taka made as curtly and rudely as possible. More than jade was discussed, and Yoshi made sure to make every denial as smarmily as possible. He also played into Taka's expectations with every word he uttered- being incredibly predictable takes no skill. He also displayed either ignorance of or contempt for the person he was speaking to in that conversation, neither of which the Clan or the increasingly-troubled Empire can afford from a person with his responsibilities. You want skill? Kakita Asami showed skill, and how to play a weak hand well. Yoshi shows how to overcompensate for a weak hand by making a bluff that will inevitably be called because you gave your opponent no other choice. Yoshi is a fool. Well-placed, well-connected, and knowledgeable about what goes on at court- which makes his folly dangerous. He's certainly the best friend the Mantis could have asked for. Which, as I have also said numerous times, is fine, because we're not at the part of the story where wise authority improves matters- we're still watching the wheels wobble before they come flying off of the trolley. Much like the Elemental council squabbling myopically, or Kachiko (speaking of fools, boy is she playing the part at present..) playing her games without knowing the board state... Now, the Lion letter- MAN is poor Toturi getting edged out of his Clan's affairs hard and fast. Ikoma are Not Nice People. Ujiaki knows how to cut a guy's legs out from under him with seeming praise.
  13. It has 6+ save vs 4+ that the tank have. It's one of the few vehicle units that can fill several roles and not be too expensive. Too Good, what have you been smoking?
  14. Why do you think that other units can’t close range and shoot them?
  15. Thanks. It looks lovely on the table too.
  16. I haven't touched this campaign yet. So looking forward to binging.
  17. In order of appearance in the PT with listed size. J-type 327 (Episode 1, Huge base due to 76 meter length) J-type diplomatic barge (Opening segment of Episode 2, Padme was flying escort in an N-1, this is what was blown up, Huge base due to 90+ meter wingspan, honestly I doubt it'll be added to X-Wing because of this) H-Type Nubian Yacht (Episode 2, Padme and Anakin went to Tatooine and Geonosis in it, Large base since just under 48 meters long, allot narrower then it is long) J-type star skiff (Episode 3, Padme went to Mustifar in it, Obi stowed away and later used it to transport her to the remote medical facility where she died, barely Large base due to 49m wing span)
  18. Shush! Keep it secret, keep it safe. (Although if people expect me to stay out of the rocks, that works too)
  19. Thank you. Been using this editor for a long time but have been away from the forms for a while. I will quietly anticipate the next release.
  20. That is not getting shot at by anything but snipers, command cards, and AT-STs (which don't make the tables in any case)... Not getting shot at (as in the real world) is the most effective defense possible.
  21. How would this do vs the 5's do we think? Trying to rework my Han list a bit more BTL-A4 Y-wing - Gold Squadron Veteran - 50 Gold Squadron Veteran - (33) Selfless (3) Ion Cannon Turret (4) Shield Upgrade (4) Veteran Turret Gunner (6) BTL-A4 Y-wing - Gold Squadron Veteran - 50 Gold Squadron Veteran - (33) Selfless (3) Ion Cannon Turret (4) Shield Upgrade (4) Veteran Turret Gunner (6) Modified YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Han Solo - 100 •Han Solo - Scoundrel for Hire (82) •Leia Organa (2) •R2-D2 (8) Inertial Dampeners (1) Engine Upgrade (7) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder
  22. I was playing a league game in a Resistance vs resistance match. I had Poe/Nien/Ello and he had more ships, as he was using more generics, but hey were loaded with torps. One T70 locked my ello, and I saw no way of escaping the proton shot, except firing a R1 jamming beam with Poe, who had bumped and had no mods. One hit got through, and the TL was stripped. I was able to keep dancing around enemy generics and ended up winning 200-0.
  23. Make it so that ships with a jamming beam equipped can jam at range 2 in arc, like it was in 1.0. I’d even pay a few points for that in some lists.
  24. I played Beef list before FFG made changes to make it Hyperspace legal. Won store champs with it and made top 4 of hyperspace trials, of course my variant has some pretty nonstandart parts: A/SF-01 B-wing - •Braylen Stramm - 47 •Braylen Stramm - Blade Leader (47) T-65 X-wing - •Wedge Antilles - 66 •Wedge Antilles - Red Two (52) Trick Shot (2) Proton Torpedoes (12) Servomotor S-foils (Open) (0) UT-60D U-wing - •Cassian Andor - 51 •Cassian Andor - Raised by the Rebellion (47) •Leia Organa (2) Tactical Officer (2) Pivot Wing (Open) (0) RZ-1 A-wing - •Jake Farrell - 36 •Jake Farrell - Sage Instructor (36) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder The unholy trio of Wedge, braylen and cassian is a must. And the scary part is, even if points change happen I can easily trim 14 points of my list (protons and trick shot), and not loose much efficiency. Versions with selfless and Biggs looks way easier to fly, and this one gives you headache at around round 3 (imagine options you get from cordinating Jake, and him giving out focuses to ships that have focus chained to move options). Solution? Some points change are in order, I'm first to say Leia needs a raise, at least to 6, as does Wedge to maybe 55-56, and Even Braylen could use few extra points. But solution needs to be two part, players need to be given new interesting options, even if it eventually leads to some level of powercreep.
