  1. Rey - To engine upgrade or not?

    I'll add to the chorus that Rey wants Engine.
  2. The Elephant in the Room: how do you beat Kanan Fenn?

    Okay. We'll just agree to disagree. If you think Rey is inflexible, then I don't think we can do anything but disagree.

    @Astech - I'm really not sure what you're trying to accomplish here. It's been a couple pages of this. Are you contending that Rey isn't a good counter to the list and the only reason why Rey/whatever can beat Ghost/Fenn is if the Ghost/Fenn player is bad?
  4. The Elephant in the Room: how do you beat Kanan Fenn?

    You say this emboldened part, then immediately flip to the Rey player just plodding along behind the Ghost. That doesn't seem very smart.

    I don't think RAClo is the path people need to go down. A whole bunch of other people will be running 3+ ship lists as their Ghost/Fenn counter, and RAClo doesn't usually do well in that environment. What do you throw in with GSPs that are competitive against the field?

    I'll make reasonable trades for AA's of stuff I like, particularly pilots, but won't pay cash. Acrylics....uh...I'll take tokens if people give them to me. Won't trade for them. Wouldn't take templates/range rulers/dice even if given to me...I'd wanna earn those.

    Fight fire with fire! I'm a huge fan of Engine on Rey, but it doesn't fit with Expertise and a decent Lothal. This, though, can melt Fenn in a turn or 2 and has the longevity to then burn down the other VCX. It's arguable it could ignore Fenn early and concentrate on the VCX. To face the field, though, I think Rey needs Engine, which means no Expertise, which means a much more uphill battle against Ghost/Fenn.

    Wait. What? You're still available for hugs at Adepticon, right?

    Nope. Poland.

    @MasterShake2 - Do you feel PRS was useful? I know it'd be match-up dependent, just curious how often you used it.
  11. Flying jank, or bringing a wooden knife to a laser gun fight

    Yeah...I haven't delved deep into playing random folks on Vassal. If I just flat out don't want to play against something someone is running, I'll just tell them and wish them luck in their next game. If that means they're mad at me about it...I guess that's okay?

    Boy am I the opposite on that. Maybe that's because I don't get it right the first time very often.
  13. Have top players tried BB-8 Poe since Wave 12/13?

    I really wouldn't expect to be taken seriously here. I'm nobody and I've done nothing. Europe is unlikely to be taken seriously, either. I just asked the question and I think Europe answered it, although ironically not with the build I'd have expected. I think Rasta has it right, though, when he says to fly what you love.
  14. Which Rey + Poe should I fly?

    I'll argue against CM over Engine because boost on a large base ship is so powerful. Think about stuff like this...you set up to joust someone...if they do even a 1-forward and you do a 4-forward, you can boost and will be in range 3. (pro tip: it's even better when they decide not to joust and do a 2-hard away and you still shoot them) If you do a sloop and boost back, you've basically backed up a little and spun your arc around. Nothing in the game can reliably run away from you, not Miranda, not even Kylo. With Engine, you use that boost to dodge missile shots or get into range 1 so they can't fire the missile. Most thing which can fire a missile are way more scared of a range 1 shot from Rey than Rey is of their range 1 shot. With BB-8, it might just be play style. I can't argue it's better than regen or the other way around. With BB-8 you can reliably shake more target locks, are much more difficult to block and much less predictable. It allows you to keep your arc on targets longer. You have more range control. You can use rocks as cover which makes it really hard to pin Poe down. I can tell you this, because you've talked about all the harpoons out there. With my list, I'm not worried about a single ordnance list out there. Not even Deadeye. Not even high PS Imperials, despite not having a bid. Having initiative against that would make it easier, but it's not necessary. Another thing to consider is that Poe is not a strong points fortress like he used to be. All the regen in the world isn't going to help Poe track down Kylo when it's just those two on the table. He's also not likely to win an end-game matchup against any Miranda with a missile. When those things are on the table, you have to kill them, and BB-8 does it better.

    You can't pull the Phantom title, though, can you? Boba wouldn't be hitting the shuttle, it'd be hitting the VCX. So you could pull the Ghost title, which means the shuttle couldn't undock of it's own accord, but the Phantom title would still be in effect. Is that correct?
