    Gunner Nerf

    The only 'gunner nerf' was the double Vader after gunner sequence. Attack (miss) - Activate: Gunner, Vader (Crew) --Resolve: Gunner (hit or miss) ---Activate: Vader (Crew) ----Resolve: Vader (Crew) -----Resolve: Vader (Crew)
  2. Whew.. got in for 1B. You at worlds!
  3. 30 in 10 seconds? I bet at 8 am they had 10,000+ calls in 10 seconds
  4. This is true, you can still Vader on both attacks. You can't however do: Attack, Gunner Attack, Vader, Vader... You used to be able to see if the second (gunner) attack kills your target before deciding if you need to Vader (from the first attack). Since both Gunner and Vader had the same timing window, you could choose the order in which to resolve them, thus allowing you to 'save up' Vader triggers.
  5. I'm still partial to Balanced Tycho: Tycho Celchu (26) Push The Limit (3) Rage (1) Auto Thursters (2) Proton Rockets (3) 35 points
  6. You can Action: Rage and Action: Focus on the same turn. (key here is the word 'assign' in the rage text. You have not taken the focus 'action' when you are 'assigned' a focus token [Also see: Whisper])
  7. I think this combo is dead with this ruling... not being able to lay the 4 auto damage is pretty detrimental.
  8. My hope is that the points switch for mod loss's to 1 from 0.
  9. Easy to slaughter your enemy when you are not following the rules! Accuracy Corrector changes 2 dice to hits after cancelling all dice results, and Autoblaster Turret is a 2 dice attack... however, in 2 rounds in a row, this combo managed to do 3 damage directly to the IG's. Big difference when you are doing 50% more damage than you should be each round.
  10. Assuming you get to use your cheater dice... if they request that you use their own (not modified dice), then no advantage to you. Alternatively, there could be a set of dice that the TO brings to a disputed table and both players need to use the TO's dice set.

  12. Does it explicitly say you can't ask for a shared set of dice? TO judgement required.
  13. This is the 'real' solution to dice issues in this game...
  14. Vorpal, there is no place in X-wing-loser-rage-fests for your logic...
  15. Where do you see the rankings for these products in the market place? Does this ranking represent the world market, NA, or USA?
  16. I'm more of a minimalist, give me the scout and IA and adaptability (-1 PS) for hands down the best blocker in the game. That leave's more points for the damage dealing ships in the list.
  17. Just tried this out with a buddy. We might be a little too new to the game but it felt like keeping track of two races and their tech, strat cards, action cards, etc made it bog down. I was really liking the idea of this variant because it changes core game very little but we just didn't have much fun and ended up calling it after two rounds. Yeah, this variant requires both players to be very well versed in the rule set. More of a variant for hard core players with a couple dozen 'regular' games under their belts. But once you get there, and you cant get more casual players to play, you can have good hard games with just 2 players
  18. Major Explosion into Major Explosion into Direct Hit. You've seen it here folks, the rarest critical hit combo. The only way to take 4 damage from 1 crit. Poor Bill.
  19. I'm a big fan of this list: 6 dice homing (with TL and F) at R2-3, then a 4 dice Auto blaster turret at range 1. Yes please! As for Jan, pred+blaster+kyle and the ability to stress yourself each turn makes her highly effective even while bumping. Miranda Doni (29) Autoblaster Turret (2) Extra Munitions (2) Homing Missiles (5) Chewbacca (4) Jan Ors (25) Predator (3) Blaster Turret (4) Kyle Katarn (3) Moldy Crow (3) Airen Cracken (19) Veteran Instincts (1) Total: 100
  20. I have been have a ton of success with SJ for a while now. I ran a list with Kath and Whisper where Kath would stress the main threat many times over then whisper would have 1 less attack dice coming at her for a while. Worked out really well, except for the hard counter of PS 10 RAC, which just happened to be crazy popular in the last meta. I still managed a 3rd place finish in the BC (Canada) Regional's. Kath Scarlet (38) Veteran Instincts (1) "Mangler" Cannon (4) Rebel Captive (3) Ion Pulse Missiles (3) Flechette Torpedoes (2) Engine Upgrade (4) Slave I (0) "Whisper" (32) Veteran Instincts (1) Sensor Jammer (4) Recon Specialist (3) Advanced Cloaking Device (4) Total: 99 In this meta, I'm loving the SJ on the bro bots, but the changes to scoring is essentially making bro-bots a 4 ship list. I'm finding it's harder to win those games that go to time, and putting SJ on bro bots reduces their fire power enough that more games are going to time. IG-88B (36) Veteran Instincts (1) Fire-Control System (2) "Mangler" Cannon (4) Glitterstim (2) Autothrusters (2) IG-2000 (0) IG-88C (36) Lone Wolf (2) Sensor Jammer (4) Heavy Laser Cannon (7) Glitterstim (2) Autothrusters (2) IG-2000 (0) Total: 100
  21. Where can I find a list of things happening outside the worlds event that I've signed up for? I'm coming for the X-wing event, and i'd like to participate in any other X-wing side events going on that week. Cheers, -n
  22. I see you were able to get one later in the thread, but weren't they holding seats for Regional winners already anyway? Unclaimed Regional winner seats were part of lot of new ones they opened for various events so that window passed already but you probably didn't need to do anything other than contact them in the first place. Spots held for US regionals... I won a Canadian Regional's.
  23. wow, thanks for this... I checked again, and got my ticket. with 20 left available... 10 minutes after the first time I had 6 minutes to complete the order.
  24. Yep, I had the page that said: You have 6 minutes to complete this transaction... I added my credit card, double checked all the info, and got: This event is sold out. So... I didn't add my CC info fast enough apparently. And that 6 minutes to complete was just a tease. I was done filling everything out at 11:00pm Mountain time,so 1 minute after I got the ticket on my screen. I wish worlds was about the best of the best competing, and not: whoever is lucky enough to get their **** filled out the fastest...
