  1. Because Cassian was rated in and proficient in flying the U wing. Bodhi was not. You can't take an F18 pilot and stick him in a 747 and expect him to land it better than the airline pilot that has been flying it for the last 20 years...
  2. Brobots have a place again post FAQ and are still very dangerous in the right hands (obviously). i thought I would see a lot more stress hogs at worlds and was worried about my defenders getting locked down with stress and never taking actions while keeping guns on. I faced Asajj once (Nick Belle top 4) and he was pulling stress off with latts anyway, and I faced a Stressbot once (Derek from evergreen running a clever Miranda Biggs Stressbot variant). So the twin ions were way underutilized and those two points would be been better spent on shuttle title.
  3. The Kylo list was me. It's called "Knights of Ren" :). Were I to go again I would drop Twin Ions and bring back shuttle title (what I ran at the system open). Brobots was Phil Booth, best brobot player in the world.
  4. Two 7-0s from yesterday. Believe Nand's squad was covered already. The other 7-0 was one of my 2 losses shoutout to Nick Belle. He had Asajj (standard), Fenn (standard) and Palob mindlink TLT at 99 points. Really good meta call, great player and a great guy.
  5. That's a long time for a reprint, but not outside the realm of normal. Looking at how many APs are "at the printer" 1) there is quite a queue and/or 2) once complete there is going to be a massive shipment once complete. I'm sure we're going to be rolling in APs before we know it. That's my hope anyway. I was just at the FFG game store in mn and their selection at the mother store was better but still pretty scarce.
  6. I have a terrible back because of what I do for work - so I feel ya. Comfy shoes with extra support (I wear my running shoes), and I carry a cushioned mat that I got at BB&B to stand on during matches. Definitely helps.
  7. Yea, it's awesome. Double up with title to ensure you're handing out stress every round.
  8. I found flying Kylo Pilot to be the most beneficial. I can now out PS lower flankers to move behind them. I know that I'll likely occupy the space of my own ships once they move minimizing blocks and thus opening up actions. This makes for a long jousting list preventing defenders from K turning behind in a single turn. coordinate can be clutch to BR guys off of rocks or give actions post bump if they gotta live. It's also a mini decloak for squirrelly aces. I set up in the corner at a 45 and get my ships ahead of its flight path along a side. Then let my opponent come to me.
  9. I think we should call my list "Knights of Ren" instead of Kylo's Defenders. My two cents.
  10. Mexican National champ with Paratanni - his name is escaping me currently. Dallas Parker got runner up with Triple Defenders with crackshot.
  11. I made top 8 with one :). It's a beast!
  12. Just recording - Dutch card guy is a local San Diego guy. They're awesome.
  13. Greetings! Long time player of FFG games, and just now going full throttle on LotR LCG and LOVING it. As my OCD requires me to compete the set, I am in search of some of the older adventure packs in an attempt to collect and play chronologically. I've stalled out in the Dwarrowdelf cycle not being able to find: -Watcher in the Water -Foundations of Stone -Shadow and Flame The website just says "out of stock" with no estimated reprint date. For those of you more experienced players, how often do reprints come and if so, how quickly are they snatched up? Aside from eBay and FLGS, anyone have any other avenues to purchase some of the older sets? Thanks!
  14. WTT: Have 1x 2015 Nationals Crit Token Want 1x 2016 Worlds Weapons Disabled Token Thanks!
  15. Mark Rothschild (congrats buddy!) had: Trandoshan Slaver, Zuckuss, 4Lom, Dengar, Inertial Dampers Thug Y wing TLT, R4 Agromech x2 Banana Pirate, BMST
  16. Vessery - 4k barrel roll to block the sloop and stay out of Rey's arc from the 3 sloop (the only ship that can shoot him next round) Ryad - do some sort of green K turn, probably a 3 for the evade Shuttle - 1 forward Rey - anticipate the 3 sloop block, do a 1 bank left to set up the sloop next round hoping to catch Vessery off guard and setting up a sloop next round getting back in the game. Corran - ADVS barrel roll back, PTL evade, 1 fwd gain a shield clear stress. Or Focus, evade. Just stay as far back as you can for next rounds double tap.
  17. Wired wont proc on Jan on her attack as she wont receive the stress token until Dash fires at PS 7 . Defensive rerolls only until dash somehow gets to a higher PS.
  18. I got lucky and happened to be on vacation (moving "vacation") during registration this year AND my two year old decided to sleep in that morning so I could afford to sit on my laptop at 6am (west coast time) and furiously hit refresh and re-populate my entry data. So I don't have much to complain about... but that doesn't leave me any less worried. Isn't X-wing the MOST POPULAR miniatures game currently? -2016 Worlds tickets are already messed up. This is after already missing the mark on venue capacity for 2015. So no lessons were learned (apparently). -2017 Worlds will be broken up to SW only... but will that cut it? Why have an exclusive tournament that you need to qualify for when you could be smart, change the venue and have a larger tournament? I suppose my point is: if people are willing to buy tickets and travel, shouldn't every effort be made to accommodate them? Wouldn't that be the healthiest for the growth of the game? I'll probably get ripped apart for this idea, but why NOT have a 5, 6, 700 person tournament? If the game is that popular... shouldn't we celebrate that? At least people that are willing to take time off work and travel could all do that. I feel terrible for those players that hold a way better shot at being the next world champion being denied even the ability to compete. Maybe I'm just crazy, but I think a crazy big tournament like that would be fun.
  19. Initial engagement should be at range three with your cannons. You get 3-4 defense dice and he doesn't against your cannons. Next round you can get into range one and prevent the stresshog from double proc-ing. Target priorities are Stresshog, Poe then the others like mentioned above. Save crackshots for Poe to punch through shields into unhealable hull.
  20. Cool, good to know. APL is a relatively unused card so I wasn't aware of that interaction. I'm assuming they stated that the R2 shield recharge vs the APL damage was initiative dependent?
