    Need help with a 9 xp build for Verena

    Master Operative is pretty good, but Ktara Maneuver is a pretty important ability for Verena to close the distance to hostile figures. Student of Battle and Create Opening are both okay abilities that make it easier to create CQ chains with Verena. I think in your situation you would be better served by Ktara Maneuver+Student of Battle over Master Operative. I hope your group is finding good synergy between Onar and Verena, Onar's Rush works really well with Verena's abilities. You definitely should take the E-11 and give it to Onar though, his starter weapon is terrible against Hidden enemies.
  2. On the Lam is incredibly game defining, it warps gameplay around the threat of it being played until it's been played or discarded. I have found Strength in Numbers and Pummel to be game defining in Spectre Cell. Those triple-tap activations are huge. Dying Lunge is a new card that has swung the game whenever I've played it. I think Intelligence Leak and Strategic Shift are also cards that could fit in this category. Having Blaze of Glory stripped from your hand right before you play it or going from 6 cards to 2 cards can be pretty game-changing.
  3. I think the threat level for this mission is incorrect. We played the mission at threat level 3 instead of 4 and it felt much more winnable but still very challenging since it's so easy for the E-XD to immediately hide the 2nd time it appears.
  4. There's this one that strings existing missions together into a mini-campaign. https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/141813/edge-oblivion-custom-mini-campaign-v21 I may have another campaign in the works that is only custom content that I may or may not be trying to finish during the holiday break that may or may not include Imperial heroes.

    I didn't mean I'm actually guilty, more like I feel bad to admit that I do this. Currently there's nothing against the rules about using a smartphone or 3rd party apps.

    I'm guilty of using my phone at tournaments to help me figure out the current score and what my win-condition is (LaunchBay Next is fantastic at this) but I wouldn't mind if I had to bring an old-fashioned calculator for this so long as printed lists are a requirement.

    I don't see why X-Wing shouldn't have a similar ban on internet-enabled electronics as other games. Magic tournaments don't allow them, but you are allowed to use a regular calculator. So long as both players have a printed copy of their list, which should be a requirement imo, you shouldn't need your phone for anything else related to the match.

    Well, I didn't say it was imbalanced against melee lists. Vader and Jets/Riots were extremely strong on Shielded, even against Rangers. Alliance Smugglers and and Ugnauts were similarly imbalanced on Raining Freight. And the deployment zones were clearly imbalanced, one side got to advance up the map with near impunity thanks to multiple hiding spots right outside of the deployment zone while the other side had zero places to hide their figures, not to mention being forced to deal with an extremely narrow deployment zone that also annoying terrain right in the middle of it and having one of the 4 objectives being inaccessible round 1 without a mobile figure. You're right that everyone is entitled to their opinion though. Nal Hutta was okay. As long you got the red deployment zone or had Jets.

    Han/Rangers/Sabine

    I don't think any list is curb-stomping Spectre Cell, unless that list is being run by Kenny Brown apparently. All the lists that have supposedly good matchups seem to be winning just by fairly close margins against Spectre Cell from the few matches that I've seen. There are a lot of lists that just have no hope of beating SC at all, so any list that can pull off a win rate better than 50% against SC is as eligible as any to be called a Spectre Killer.

    You can downgrade Han to Drokkotta and then replace C11op with Hera.

    Have you played all of those maps? Putting Nal Hutta Swamps in the good category gives me doubts about the rest of the list. That map was terribly imbalanced.

    Mos Eisley back alleys is a popular map for its relative balance. I also liked Training Grounds when it was in rotation.

    Ok, well it sounds like Kenny and JK were a bit mixed up then. I look forward to hearing your upcoming account of it on the podcast.
