  1. Highbridge wooden tournament and token trays on Etsy. https://www.etsy.com/listing/547347639/x-wing-template-tray-for-feldherr-mini?ref=shop_home_feat_2&frs=1&bes=1 I use this, but sub out the flat lid for the tournament lid, still three wood panels. Take one of the pluck inserts out and replace with this. Additionally, you can fit one of those snap on dice trays in it as well. https://www.coolstuffinc.com/main_search.php?pa=searchOnName&page=1&resultsPerPage=25&q=Dice+tray Created a neat and organized gaming setup.
  2. Try Poe, Ello, Nien. Some people complain T70s are boring, but if you’ve got a mind for S-foils these guys add tons of style and depth to the workhorse statline. Crackshot, or points permitting Predator, and you can lay down some high initiative double mod shots on targets for solid PS kills. Stick a fat torpedo on Poe and your opponent will know fear. I always get drawn back to this list.
  3. As stated, separate paragraph.
  4. Connix is great (especially since the Nav price change) and will experiment with her on Rey. The rest of those upgrades are underwhelming solely based on cost.
  5. So the original release date was set to June 6th, but from what I have heard (secondhand and I have not signed an NDA) is that they didn’t even start the playtesting process until June 2 or 3. I wouldn’t want to claim that all these delays are solely because FFG was too inept to provide playtesters materials and point values sooner, but I’ve also been playing X-wing for a long time and am familiar with FFG’s “logic.” I wanted to believe it was because there were shipping and distributing issues with China. “Australia got their stuff,” well they are much closer to the factories. “Barnes and Noble has it too,” sorry FFG, I got no excuse for you anymore. So I personally do believe FFG in some capacity did not prepare a proper timetable for releasing the product when it was assured and had to delay it. Playtesting window, LFL licensing, App updating, whatever it was I think FFG is just exercising poor business strategies. They have every opportunity to change my mind by being transparent about their delays though.
  6. Seconding this one, emphasis the outfly part.
  7. Can attest, I use Wave Leader instead for full advantage™️.
  8. If you think this is 1.0 Combowing you haven’t played against a decked RAC with Vader crew and all the upgrades.
  9. Range control. Ties into understanding initiative. Ruining an opponent’s alpha attempt by maintaining range 3 vs their low initiative VTG and then wiping it from the board before it ever double taps is not difficult if you’re planning it out from deployment and take advantage of early repositions. What’s most difficult for me is getting distracted by opponent’s gimmicks and flying myself into a figurative corner instead of maintaining a sound, fundamental strategy. “Oh Strikers with Seismics? I better jerk around the board edge for 3 rounds instead of just wiping it off the board before I even see it’s backside.”
  10. Can someone share the base insert double sides for the ARCs?
  11. I’ve run T70s and RZ2s almost exclusively since Resistance release and I have to profess my love for Predator on the I5-6 T70s. Closed S-foils Focus to BR for double mod shots.

    -less Talents

    FO - Relentless Resistance - Reckless (I know, quite different meaning from Heroic, but blanking dice is scary) Separatist - Heartless Republic - Dauntless (I know, Deci title, but seems to fit)
  13. I don’t mind the Pava card. Certainly like it more than anything PLR.
  14. I’ve been running 4-5s in a lot of iterations, and the next I want to try swaps out a T70 altogether for Vennie: Ello Asty (56) Heroic (1) Integrated S-Foils (0) L’ulo L’ampar (38) Heroic (1) Tallissan Lintra (35) Heroic (1) Vennie (62) Veteran Turret Gunner (6) Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0 I’ve tried all sorts of missiles on the As and nothing satisfies me, so fitting this beef in almost feels like cheating. Again, haven’t set it to table just yet, but I have extensive 4-5 testing and Vennie in the mix looks like a gain. Tallie support for Vennie allows a potential 3 Evade result on Vennie with Focus. Also add Jamming Beam onto Ello in Extended.
