  1. I was wondering if there are any other L5R LCG web site resources out there besides FFG website and cardgamedb.com. Thanks

    Does Kaanan/Biggs cut it these days?

    The blog from the person who won the Canadian National. You can get their two cents: https://spaceowlsxwing.blogspot.ca/2017/09/i-won-thing.html An excerpt on why they went with it: The meta seemed right for Kanan Biggs. The four TLT shots are strong against Nym and Miranda and bypasses Selflessness and Draw Their Fire in Biggs lists. Contracted Scouts are a tough matchup, but fewer of them run Boba Fett.

    Of course, Howl's there to help with the rolls in combat phase.

    Tie Swarm

    I was wondering if folks are having issues with swarms working with all the releases. I understand they can compete to certain degree and may do well in tournaments at times. However, I think the glory days of swarm are out (several waves ago) with the preference of 2~3 ship builds. I believe swarms are not as durable with the past couple of wave releases. They use to have volume of ships and decent agility for durability despite 3 Hull. However, bombs, alpha strike, higher damage output has put this out the door a bit, 3 Hull doesn't cut it as much anymore. Blocking to deny action economy is a bit out the window with all these new upgrade card combo to provide action economy. Also, the two ATK dice is not as effective despite the potential volume of fire. I'm trying to get some swarm lists working. I could use input and suggestions. Right now, my latest Tie Swarm list uses Snap Shot for extra potential damage output: [20PT] “Howlrunner” Snap Shot [16PT] Black Squadron Pilot Snap Shot [16PT] Black Squadron Pilot Snap Shot [16PT] Black Squadron Pilot Snap Shot [16PT] Black Squadron Pilot Snap Shot [16PT] Black Squadron Pilot Snap Shot Thanks
  5. The magic for me started fading after the release of Wave 8. The boost in the action economy, alpha strike, bombs, more cost effective ships (beefier in health and movement) , etc.

    Imperial Lists [100PT]

    Thanks for your input. I'm still playing around with list 1. Right now I only have 4 Tie Bombers and really don't plan to buy anymore. Two of the four Bombers are from Imperial Veterans. Yeah, TLT is boring. I went with it to give folks for a variety of lists to fly against. Yeah, I was thinking Kylo might help out. Though Operation Spec can do well with Rexler and I agree their are better ace pairings then Rexler with Chiraneau. Though I went with Rexler for something different and the potential of extra damage.

    Imperial Lists [100PT]

    Thanks for the input. This is my thought process in regards to the comments for construction of the builds. For this build, I went with Jonus and Op Specs not necessarily for the bonus on the attack for the plasma torps. It was meant more to allow Deadeye to triggered on the first/second salvo if the ships were stressed, stripped of focus tokens, blocked by other ships, Tie Bombers K-turn, etc. Jonus could shoot first (another Tie Bomber can shoot if this doesn't work) and hopefully miss to give a focus to a Tie Bomber for Deadeye. I agree LWF would make the Aggressors a bit beefier. Though, with 5 health, 2 AGI and a decent dial they are still pretty durable without it. The lack of LWF gave me more points for a better ace to be paired with them.

    Should the better known characters be more powerful?

    The iconic characters should be at least decent in the game if they're known for their piloting. New players gravitate towards the pilots and ships they know of in the movies.
  9. I'm primarily an Imperial player and I'm looking for constructive input for potential improvements on lists. These lists I will be taking to general game nights.

    With the $29.95 price point for the Tie Silencer, I'm probably going to just buy one. Back in the early wave days I use to buy enough small ships to fill a 100PT with the lowest pilot skill. So, that was about 4-8 ships. Now a days I just buy about 2-3 small ships.

    Z-95 Swarm

    A couple of waves ago, I ran the following 6 Z-95 Alpha Strike swarm. It worked pretty well for me: [18PT] Lieutenant Blount Z-95 Headhunter XX-23 S-thread Tracers Adaptability [17PT] Tala Squadron Pilot x4 Z-95 Headhunter Concussion Missiles Guidance Chips [14PT] Tala Squadron Pilot Z-95 Headhunter XX-23 S-thread Tracers Placed another ship with XX-23 tracer just in case Lt Blount gets melted down or somehow the focus is removed. Went for PS4 at the time for better PS against PS3 ships.

    Congrats to Paul Heaver our NOVA champ

    The final match is here if you're interested in watching it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRHxUp0eHhM
  14. I've seen this setup on Poe and it works pretty well. The regen gives it extra beef. What are you planning to pair up with Poe? The person I saw you using this setup went with Dash.
