    Vulture Launching (from rocks)

    Don't forget to account for coordinating a barrel roll and then actually executing the maneuver on your dial when considering Roger-Roger shenanigans. I'm sure *someone* can take Squad Leader in that faction.

    I almost got wrecked by a guy in his first event running a Hyperspace-compliant Luke Wedge U-Tubes. My last sigma escaped with 1 hull and I considered myself lucky.

    Missile Ordinances are the best. "9.32.010 Shooting arrows or missiles. Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, no person shall within the incorporated limits of the City shoot any arrow or similar missile and no person, firm or corporation shall cause or permit any arrow or similar missile to be shot at any place within 200 yards of any public highway, private street used by the general public, recreational area, park, riding and hiking trail, dwelling house, camp or place of human habitation, except when the arrow is shot from and at all times remains on or over, and lands upon, private property or portion thereof, when permission has been granted by the property owner. (Ord. 93 § 1, 1966)"

    Grappling Struts - red maneuvers

    best option: dial up something interesting, have a coordinator nearby, and decide whether to stay on the rock or get coordinated to barrel-roll off the rock and then do your actual dial maneuver.

    Grappling Struts - red maneuvers

    well, let's read the card... "if you reveal a maneuver other than a 2 [straight] and are at range 0 of an asteroid or debris cloud, skip your Execute Maneuver step and remove 1 stress token. If you revealed a right or left maneuver, rotate your ship 90º in that direction." So if you reveal a left Tallon roll, you will skip your Execute Maneuver step. So you will not perform the maneuver (and thus not flip 180º) and you will not check the difficulty. No stress is gained, because that is part of the Check Difficulty step of Executing a Maneuver. See page 13 of your RRG. You will instead turn 90º to the left. During the Activation Phase, you Reveal Dial, Execute Maneuver, and Perform Action. So, in this case you Reveal Dial, skip Execute Maneuver, then Perform Action. You skipped the Check Difficulty part of Execute Maneuver, so you are not stressed. The Struts are letting you ignore the obstacle, so you can perform an action.

    that's moving through a rock. you have to land on the rock to overlap a rock to flip the card.

    man I miss WotC's "next ban list releases on this date" followed by releasing the ban list on that actual date so people can plan for events. not to mention product release dates I don't miss $1000 decks, though.

    What if the decision was “points are fine” and the New Years update was the real points update and we’re all waiting for nothing?

    So I borrowed two Phantoms to try out the quad juke Phantom list for the first time yesterday at a Wave Championship... That was fun. I'm not sure how you lose with the squad, because I never did. Comm Relay+Juke seems like it's well-balanced. I'm glad it's in 2.0.

    so, my actual guess is that the New Year's Eve update was that script, and it was actually supposed to be a points update, but (in typical FFG fashion) they had it put the old pdfs up.
