    The secret of data crunching

    I agree, however I don't think the easy data source is, or ever was, ListJuggler. IMO the easy data source is the big tournament results, and we didn't really have many of those so far.

    The secret of data crunching

    What makes you think without the kind of data provided by list juggler/fortress people will copy less, and not copy just as much, but from a narrower pool of lists (what does really well at large events)?

    The secret of data crunching

    Most likely won't though. There is a demand for this kind of data in the community, so sooner or later somebody awesome like @sozin or @Antigrapist will step up and provide it

    Scummy Falcon

    If Han was that good, you'd have seen him do well at Coruscant, with Boba not being an option.

    Scummy Falcon

    Based on most tournament results so far, Scum Han seems to be performing way worse than Boba, so it' s likely not undercosted enough. I'll never understand the purpose of that rule apart from the obvious 'you have to buy more models'.

    Coordination Meta?

    0-0-0 is another solid crew, but sadly in 2.0 only I have yet to see a real alternative to Perceptive Co-pilot. What are you running as crew?

    Coordination Meta?

    My current list Fang Fighter - •Fenn Rau - 72 •Fenn Rau - Skull Leader (68) •Lone Wolf (4) Firespray-class Patrol Craft - •Boba Fett - 100 •Boba Fett - Notorious Bounty Hunter (80) Fearless (3) Perceptive Copilot (10) •Marauder (3) •Han Solo (4) Escape Craft - •L3-37 - 24 •L3-37 - Droid Revolutionary (22) Tactical Officer (2) Total: 196/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder I don't feel Lando is worth losing the 4 point bid. I have considering upgrading to the Pioneer (having Boba land on a rock and still shoot is a neat trick) or dropping Fearless altogether off Boba.

    Coordination Meta?

    At my FLGS we decided to run 2.0 only for a while to attract as many new players as possible, so I started running Boba/Fenn/L3-37. On paper I just took L3-37 because the escape craft is the only filler option for Scum, but in practice, at 24 points for L3-37 with a Tactical Officer it's proven a real steal. The enemy doesn't always have the firepower to spare to target her with Boba in their faces (and if they do, that's some shots not hitting Boba) and throwing actions onto the Firespray is great. I can also set up a pretty devastating first engagement too: coordinate a Red Reinforce to Boba, do a blue move, clear stress, do a regular action, use Han Solo when engaging.

    Prequel Ability Carry-over?

    One thing to remember is that this is likely early Clone Wars Anakin, due to flying a Delta-7 Interceptor and not an Eta-2 Actis. Late Clone Wars Anakin at the height of his power is stronger than Vader according to most Canon sources, but a younger Anakin possibly not.

    The curious case of Boba Fett

    In theory yes, in practice, at least in my experience, you mostly shut down 1 guy with Fenn.

    The curious case of Boba Fett

    Hyperbole much? The Ghost had 1 Evade and Sensor Jammer, which means it could ignore up to 2 damage from the first attack and up to 1 from the others (if nobody had a Focus token). I ran Ghost Fenn extensively and it was certainly not ignoring 3-dice attacks, at least not modded 3 dice attacks. Reducing their effectiveness yes, but not ignoring.

    Which is the strongest faction in 2.0?

    I agree, Boba is by far the strongest piece in Scum and possibly in the game too. However, I don't think even the best Boba squads are stronger than the best Empire squads. IMO they are around the same level. That's the reason I rate Empire higher than Scum: Scum has only 1 way to get there (Boba) while the Empire has several.
  13. LordBlades

    Which is the strongest faction in 2.0?

    IMO Empire. Looking at Coruscant, one could see Empire dominating and quite varied imperial lists performing well, which IMO shows they have depth: multiple ships&combos that can do well. Regarding Scum, one might argue that they were put at a disadvantage due to not being able to field Boba in a Firespray and they might have performed way better otherwise. While that might be true (I think it is and they did win Gold Squadron Classic), if their power sits mainly in Boba Fett pilot, I wouldn't say they're in a good place. As for Rebels, I'm not sure. They too were at a disadvantage at Coruscant due to Leia, but for them I really don't see any top notch squads atm.

    Why would anyone fly a Jumpmaster?

    I disagree. Bombs only bullied aces. You could play a list with a couple of bulky ships and never care about Bombs. The problem bombers were always ships like Miranda or Nym that had a ton of other stuff going on beside Bombs.

    Why would anyone fly a Jumpmaster?

    Parattani and Dengaroo were as close as it gets to unbeatable. Unless up against something specifically designed as a counter, either list put the burden of execution almost entirely on the opponent. It was up to them to come up with a plan to win, otherwise Dengaroo/Parattani will just bully them off the board by sheer numerical efficiency.
