  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Seconding this one, emphasis the outfly part.
  4. Can attest, I use Wave Leader instead for full advantage™️.
  5. If you think this is 1.0 Combowing you haven’t played against a decked RAC with Vader crew and all the upgrades.
  6. 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.”
  7. Can someone share the base insert double sides for the ARCs?
  8. 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)
  10. I don’t mind the Pava card. Certainly like it more than anything PLR.
  11. 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.
  12. Tallie is great, especially when opponents target her in initial engagement and never get another shot on her all game. Bet You Won’t Tallissan Lintra (35) Heroic (1) Trick Shot (1) Homing Missiles (3) L'ulo L'ampar (38) Heroic (1) Trick Shot (1) Homing Missiles (3) Nien Nunb (55) Heroic (1) Integrated S-Foils (0) Ello Asty (56) Heroic (1) Integrated S-Foils (0) Total: 196 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0
  13. Honestly, S-foils give me all the reposition I could reasonably imagine, especially the T70s. FAA in 2.0 would probably be too much.

    Poe > Kylo

    Resistance converted a bit better to my tastes than my beloved FO. Four5s and ThreeT70 are my jam now.
