    Wookie Hunter got a reaction from Jisforjets in Did the B-Wing finally break the system   
    Yes, I took no hull damage.  Shields plenty.  But I consider myself quite good at maneuvering and this game in general.  Even when flying crappy maneuvering ships, I laid into all 3 squads I faced and didnt ever get challenged.  Now maybe my opponent just didn't know what to do.  To be honest most of them just try to fly right at me and focus, but Im so good at maneuvering they never had a chance.  The hardest win, hard....maybe not.....but was a twin firespray with hlc's and expert handling.  They did good at not getting shot at until I outmaneuvered him with my 3 B-Wings in round 4.  Outmaneuvered you say?  I block like nobody and I made it so I had  2 full rounds of hlc shots because of placement of asteroids and blocking.  Range 3 hls shots on his kath scarlett was devastating and it was mop up on Boba from there.  I never got two shots on Boba, but I made sure to maneuver so no matter where he went I would have at least one good shot.

    Turrets let you fire inside or outside of your firing arc. They don't give you a 360° firing arc.

    Judging by the reactions on the forum so far, they really should have made atleast one "serious" trailer.

    I feel sorry for the Stormtroopers. Only reason they keep getting owned is because they refuse to shoot someone in cold blood. And his blaster was on stun!

    Both of those shorts were amazing.  Really excited for this show.
     
    Anybody knocking this show (before it's even come out, I might add), needs to have their head examined.  I've been waiting for a Galactic Civic War era TV show for 20+ years.  The best parts of Clone Wars were the lightsaber duels and the space battles.  I imagine Rebels will follow suit.
     
    Guys, we push little plastic YTs and TIEs around for fun, how are those two shorts not awesome?
     
    And p.s. it's got everything; evades, heavy laser cannons, K-turns, even a console fire critical hit, haha.

    You know, Crabbok, each and every one of these things is a legitimate problem an I blame you personally for each of them.  I thought you ought to know.  Every single complaint that any player has ever had is, quite simply, your fault.
     
    I do, however, accept your apology.  Cuz I'm just that kinda guy.

    .. that we didn't get a painting subforum, or Star Destroyer, or Imperial Huge Ships, or TIE Advanced fixes yet.  
     
      I'm also sorry for not rating your new scenario, critiquing your build, or playtesting your homemade cards.  
     
      I'm also sorry that your 4th faction wishlist probably won't come true.  Additionally, I apologize for all the products that are STILL on the boat, and even more for those who are still at the printer.  
     
      I'm sorry that that card you hate still isn't banned.  I'm sorry that Scum and Villainy leaves you with tough decisions on how to store and transport your collection.  I'm sorry that the Most Wanted pack z-95's and Y-Wings can't be legally interchanged with the rebel variants due to the dial.  
     
      I'm sorry that that some builds dominate the "meta".  I'm sorry about your off topic political post.  I'm sorry that you didn't get to go to Gen Con.  I'm terribly sorry that that huge ship you don't want to buy includes a card that you really want.  
     
    I'm sorry that FFG has completely broke the game due to the introduction of that new card.  I'm also sorry that FFG completely broke the game with turrets.  I'm also sorry that FFG completely broke the game by including red dice.

    I can safely say my doomshuttle has maybe 2 turn of kinda ineffectiveness before it is right back in and shooting for 3 rounds a second time.  Doomshuttle is best when you dont need vader.  Its not hard to make the doomshuttle very strong offensively unlike what others like to say about it.

    Wookie Hunter reacted to Darth Ruin in It's time to ban C3P0   
    The Falcon makes you immune to a 2 damage attack once per turn. C3P0 gives you a guaranteed evade each turn; 
     
    C3P0 gives you essentially hull upgrade every time you use it, for 3 points. How is this balanced? 
     
    Also, he's not entirely useless on Huge Ships because they can roll 1 evade dice at range 3 and use him.

    Wookie Hunter reacted to markcsoul in It's time to ban C3P0   
    There's a big difference between 3po and chewie card.  Chewie gives you a guaranteed two extra hit points, 3po is a minimum of one, but likely much more. 
     
    3po + MF is 2 guaranteed evades each turn for only 4 points (as long as you get an action).  As others have said this is VERY had to kill late game if you're down to 1-2 ships, especially if they are 2 attack ships.
     
    EDIT: And I know everyone says attack the falcon first, but that's is tricky as well, as it means the falcon plus it's escorts are shooting you up each turn.  So you kill the falcon, but might be so beaten up you can't finish off the escorts.  Or you go for the escorts to have less shots going against you, but then you don't have enough ships to finish off the tanky falcon.

    Wookie Hunter reacted to Buhallin in It's time to ban C3P0   
    For (1), something has obviously changed.  Falcon+2 builds have been standard for a while, but seem to have exploded recently.  So where did the fat builds come from?  Phantoms pushing people to turrets is probably part of it.  The Z-95 probably contributes, since you can get +9 points into the Falcon without going all the way down to 2 ships.  But I think C-3PO contributing to the durability has to be considered a major part of it.  Whether it really works out mathematically or not, people FEEL like they're tougher with it, and can afford to put more points into the single ship.  And when you're talking meta influence, perception is just as important as mathematical reality.
     
    For fixes on (2)...  <shrug>  I think ordnance is very RPS, but even then doesn't help much.  Unless you run A LOT of it, you're going to blow what you've got without taking down the Falcon.  It's also vulnerable to PS jumps - the Falcon is FAST, and will almost certainly have a PS advantage...  If it includes an Engine Upgrade it an close from outside lock range to collision point in a single move.
     
    I'm certainly not defending the way the OP presented his case, but the reaction across the board was disappointing.  We're 4 pages into what is basically people shouting down someone who's not enjoying part of the game.

    I agree with you Buhallin... I don't think 3-CPO needs to be banned, but the OP is taking way more heat then he should for saying so.
    If people have a logical rational argument to make why 3-CPO isn't OP'ed they should make it, but posts like "Oh look the sky is falling again" is neither helpful, pleasant or fits in the general "fly casual" attitude so many espouse as being a part of this community.
    Myself I don't think 3-CPO is an issue, because he at best gives you 1 evade a turn, and a 3 point crew that lets you evade 1 damage doesn't seem to be that OP.

    Meta is usually local.  I ran an event last weekend that had a dozen players and not a single Falcon, much less a Fat one.
     
    But that doesn't mean it's not a problem anywhere.  The San Diego regional a few months back (pre-3PO) had 24 players, and 21 were Rebels running Falcons or B-wings.  It's nice that you don't have to deal with it, but there are people who ARE dealing with it, and it's really not fun.

    Its not OP and doesn't need a ban.
    However, wave 6 sure as hell better bring the strong counters to the super falcons. Every other ship/list type has had multiple counters released in a short time span. Its the turret ships chance to be within the crosshairs for once.
    Not everyone runs swarms and shouldn't have to just to stand a chance against a list.

    Whether I agree with the OP or not, this is a poor, uninformed effort at bashing him.
     
    You get Advanced Cloaking Device with the only ship that's going to use it.  You get C-3PO in a box with a ship he's borderline useless with.  "worth spending the money" is not $15, it's $90.  You're right, he's not forced to buy it - but I think a lot of people are very uncomfortable with the "Pay to Win" feeling coming from C-3PO right now.  The Corvette is a VERY expensive SKU that a lot of people don't really want, and watching such a meta-influencing card come out of it is disturbing.  And yes, guessing zero evades does actually result in an automatic evade.
