    Carolina Krayts is the best X-Wing podcast

    Boba's biggest weakness is nuking his reroll source before the rest of the enemy squad fires.

    His other option was to turn onto a Moralo on the board edge and shoot into reinforce and then be chasing nothing the following turn.

    oh my lord. our Launch Day Event, I parked Boba right in front of a TIE swarm, bumping into the lead guy on my move. Boba's shot ate Iden's token, Boba's wingman took out Howlrunner, and I flipped over one Boba shield. It seemed very fair.

    if you replace Han with Veteran Tail Gunner (same points currently) Which is how I started my Boba adventure. Strong against TIE swarms if you can get yourself in the right spot. Tends to lead to poor choices (when i fly it) just trying to set up turns where those 4 points do anything.

    best loadouts on the firespray?

    That's what I've been doing. I like the double calculate that does not require my opponent's consent, unlike 0-0-0. I've been mixing with either Lone Wolf or Debris Gambit. Together with a Sheathipede Escape Craft, you get two calc, a focus, and either a reinforce or evade depending on your needs.

    When he’s sitting there with three or four green tokens and infinite rerolls, he definitely feels like 1.0 Dengar. Only thing missing is 2 shots a turn. good thing they banned him from Coruscant!

    2nd ed Console Fire damage card.

    Think of it another way. Compare these two situations: You kill him exactly with Direct Hit damage. We all know he gets to fire. You leave him at one and apply a Console Fire. He engages and rolls a hit and takes a damage. In both situations, he's taking an extra damage as a result of the incoming shot, but he's shooting simultaneously, so he gets to shoot. The only difference with your situation is that the fire existed before the turn. He's still taking the damage at the exact same time. I don't think there's a way to allow him to shoot in situation 2 (where he should obviously be allowed to) and not allow him to shoot if he burns up from a previous-turn's Console Fire (except to leave the roll at the start of combat, which they obviously did not want to do).

    Stealth device

    I once had a Soontir Fel die with his Stealth Device still active. One Anti-Pursuit Laser and two Feedback Array zaps. Good riddance, Dengaroo!

    I disagree with FFG greatly on OP formats

    It's a simple business decision: Promoting Extended sells 1.0 back-stock and Conversion Kits. Promoting "Second Edition" does not.

    Shield U. Hull U. and Stealth D. Worth it?

    I'm intermittently using Stealth Device on my Boba build with Lone Wolf, IG-88D, and Han Solo. If I have the 6 points to spare, I'll throw it in and make that first hit on Bob take longer. With all of the tokens and rerolls, that extra die stays a live for a while.

    Scum Questions...

    I ran a Boba with IG/Han/Cyber and Moralo with Lando/Jabba/Cyber to 2nd Place at our launch event. Lots of fun. I felt like I could actually fly the 666. Stop and action, then 3 banks and herds and keep taking actions. Best k-turn in the game. Only problem was the aforementioned high PS for Lando-Reinforce. Only game Moralo died was vs 4 x-wings, three of which were lower ps

    Is everyone as impressed with the 2.0 HWK as I am?

    I’ve been running Palob with Fearless and that just seems ridiculous! But it’s a lot of fun!
