  1. So, I ran this list at our 2017 Regionals the other week (130+ players, 6 rounds, finished 88th!): Rear Admiral Chiraneau (58) VT-49 Decimator (46), Predator (3), Gunner (5), Engine Upgrade (4) Starkiller Base Pilot (42) Upsilon-class Shuttle (30), Kylo Ren (3), Gunner (5), Kylo Ren's Shuttle (2) On numerous occasions, I regretted not having Vader crew to finish off those annoying aces. Just one or two Force Chokes per game would have been fantastic. Opponents said the same thing! I also found that the Kylo Ren's Shuttle title, while reliable, wasn't enough in the current meta: I needed to either double-stress my enemy, or not bother. Finally, maybe it's poor piloting on my part, but I found my Upsilon was generally caught up in a furball, and causing a lot of ships to bump it. Reminds me of the previous shuttle! I'm looking to squeeze in Vader, and improve the Upsilon while I'm at it: REGIONALS 2017: I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, REAR ADMIRAL CHIRANEAU 100 points PILOTS Rear Admiral Chiraneau (61) VT-49 Decimator (46), Predator (3), Gunner (5), Darth Vader (3), Engine Upgrade (4) Starkiller Base Pilot (39) Upsilon-class Shuttle (30), Fire-Control System (2), Kylo Ren (3), Kylo Ren's Shuttle (2), Anti-Pursuit Lasers (2) View | Tweak | Export as XWS The Decimator now looks good to me. However, I'm having problems fitting out the Upsilon. FCS seems weak without Gunner. The title seems weak without another source of stress. Anti-Pursuit Lasers seems reactive, and really I'd like to keep my Upsilon out of melee. What would you do here to fix the Upsilon? Or would you scrap it, and replace it with another ship entirely?
  2. Oh my born days Parakintor, I didn't think about this. Will have to go and read the cards. So much for teaming crew Vader with Kylo... How about this, gang? REGIONALS 2017: I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, REAR ADMIRAL CHIRANEAU 100 points PILOTS Rear Admiral Chiraneau (58) VT-49 Decimator (46), Predator (3), Gunner (5), Engine Upgrade (4) Starkiller Base Pilot (42) Upsilon-class Shuttle (30), Kylo Ren (3), Gunner (5), Engine Upgrade (4) View | Tweak | Export as XWS
  3. Hmm, OK, let's clear off all the stress cards, and put Kylo in the passenger seat! REGIONALS 2017: I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, REAR ADMIRAL CHIRANEAU 100 points PILOTS Major Stridan (41) Upsilon-class Shuttle (32), Fire-Control System (2), Kylo Ren (3), Engine Upgrade (4) Rear Admiral Chiraneau (59) VT-49 Decimator (46), Veteran Instincts (1), Darth Vader (3), Gunner (5), Engine Upgrade (4) View | Tweak | Export as XWS
  4. Oh yeah, I didn't notice that I'd lost the Upsilon title! Unfortunately, I don't have adaptability. How's this: 2017 REGIONALS: I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, REAR ADMIRAL CHIRANEAU 100 points PILOTS Kylo Ren (44) Upsilon-class Shuttle (34), Fire-Control System (2), Tactician (2), Kylo Ren's Shuttle (2), Engine Upgrade (4) Rear Admiral Chiraneau (56) VT-49 Decimator (46), Darth Vader (3), Rebel Captive (3), Engine Upgrade (4) View | Tweak | Export as XWS On the topic of ISYTDS... What do you think about swapping Kylo out for another pilot, and taking him as crew? I could then hand out ISYTDS whenever I like, and to whomever I like: albeit at the cost of an action.
  5. By the way, I'm enjoying the experience of just moving cards between ships... these big ships are so versatile with their multiple slots!
  6. Thanks for the comments Kreen! Dengaroo, I reckon I'd focus on taking down Manaroo first: so stress sounds good. Taking your points on board, what do you think of these lists? 2017 REGIONALS: I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, PATROL LEADER 100 points PILOTS Kylo Ren (50) Upsilon-class Shuttle (34), Veteran Instincts (1), Fire-Control System (2), Gunner (5), Tactician (2), Kylo Ren's Shuttle (2), Engine Upgrade (4) Patrol Leader (50) VT-49 Decimator (40), Darth Vader (3), Rebel Captive (3), Engine Upgrade (4) View | Tweak | Export as XWS 2017 REGIONALS: I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, REAR ADMIRAL CHIRANEAU 100 points PILOTS Kylo Ren (41) Upsilon-class Shuttle (34), Veteran Instincts (1), Fire-Control System (2), Engine Upgrade (4) Rear Admiral Chiraneau (59) VT-49 Decimator (46), Predator (3), Darth Vader (3), Rebel Captive (3), Engine Upgrade (4) View | Tweak | Export as XWS
  7. Greetings space fans. I'm working on my list for Regionals 2017, and having been out of the game for at least 6 months, I need some pointers! The plan is to use an Upsilon Shuttle and a Decimator. The Decimator should deal out crits - buffed by the Upsilon into I Will Show You The Dark Side crits - before inevitably becoming Vader's funeral pyre. I need advice about who to pilot the ships, and what to spend my upgrade points on. - - - I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, PATROL LEADER 100 points PILOTS Kylo Ren (50) Upsilon-class Shuttle (34), Fire-Control System (2), Gunner (5), Rebel Captive (3), Kylo Ren's Shuttle (2), Engine Upgrade (4) Patrol Leader (50) VT-49 Decimator (40), Gunner (5), Darth Vader (3), Tactician (2) One benefit of the Patrol Leader is her relative indifference to being hit by an opponent's IWSYTD. It's also easier to keep the Decimator down to 50 points, hopefully making it difficult for some opponents to decide which ship to take down first: I remember this being a consideration a few waves ago, but may no longer be as necessary. - - - I WILL FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, REAR ADMIRAL CHIRANEAU 100 points PILOTS Kylo Ren (44) Upsilon-class Shuttle (34), Veteran Instincts (1), Fire-Control System (2), Rebel Captive (3), Engine Upgrade (4) Rear Admiral Chiraneau (56) VT-49 Decimator (46), Predator (3), Darth Vader (3), Engine Upgrade (4) RAC's pilot ability clearly synergises better with Kylo's. But then I'm reluctant to burden RAC with Vader. RAC's more difficult to keep down to 50 points: but I'm not sure if this 50-point thing is a distraction on my part. Pleasingly, with VI on Kylo, both ships are PS 8. - - - Both of these lists have a secondary theme of Stress, with 3-5 points spent on Stress-inducing upgrades. Is this going to be useful in the current meta? Listening to a few podcasts, I'm not so sure. Brutal comments please: show me again, the power of the darkness.
  8. I love the idea of Bossk + several Quadjumpers. Tactician is Limited though, so you can only take one.
  9. Re: my I Will Finish What You Started list, is there any advantage to making your ships equal points cost: to make it harder for your opponent to choose which to kill first? I remember this being a thing, several waves ago.
  10. I feel like I'd want to swap Palpatine for a Rebel Captive and Gunner. But that may be Chiraneau residue. On Kenkirk, maybe Palp is better.
  11. I will finish what you started 100 pts Kylo Ren (50) Upsilon-class Shuttle (34), Fire-Control System (2), Gunner (5), Rebel Captive (3), Kylo Ren's Shuttle (2), Engine Upgrade (4) Patrol Leader (50) VT-49 Decimator (40), Gunner (5), Darth Vader (3), Tactician (2) View: http://xwing-builder.co.uk/view/648105/2017-regionals-i-will-finish-what-you-started Grandpa's Magic Helmet sows dread and confusion until his funeral boat explodes into flames. The Heir to My So-Called Empire tantrums whomever remains into submission. Both monster trucks are 50pts for MOV purposes. I'm considering bringing this to Regionals in March. Opportunity to test it in a store tournament next week! What should I watch out for?
