New player thoughts in X-Wing Posted January 5, 2015 The main thing about turrets is you tend to pay a lot for them in points, so you have less attacks overall then someone that didn't use turrets. One Falcon costs as much as two X-Wings, but only hits as hard as one of them. I myself tend to find the turrets reasonably balanced by that, although I admit that Interceptors and A-Wings really need those Autothrusters. That said if you enjoy just playing the small ships then that's fine. You're under no obligation to use large ships in your kitchen table games.
