    XG-1 "Star Wing" Assault Gunboat Pilots' Lounge

    I've not used triple action Vynder, but I've been having a lot of fun with OS-1 PtL Rhoboats. Get to use them in one more major event, at least!

    Pretty sure that Kylo proved that preventing your opponent from making an attack is an NPE that's up there with pre-nerf Whisper!

    That would be the only way I can think of off the top of my head to receive more than one Disarm token. I've pulled that combo a couple of times in 1st £dition (with Push the Limit, not Advanced SLAM), but not too often. It's not something that will really happen with the XG-1 title anyway, however the OS-1 title has the same wording: Maybe there is another way to get Disarm tokens. Hopefully not as a weapon effect, though.

    How do i transport my mat?

    I could never resist a French invasion. The cuisine alone is excellent.

    Well, it is unless there's ways to force disarm tokens onto enemy ships...

    I'd fly it!

    Cluster mines gone?

    I was going to pick up another four sets of Cluster Mines to do a ridiculously janky Y-Wing/U-Wing build. I'm glad I didn't now!

    New Aliens in Solo

    One of the things I was really looking forward to seeing in the new Star Wars filsm is some of the original aliens updated with modern pratical and CGI-enhanced effects. Can you imagine a modern fight scene between Chewbacca and Bossk, for example? Or one of the new characters having an Ithorian or Gran side-kick? When you've alrerady got such a rich universe of races and characters to draw from, not everything needs to be new.

    Where's Joe?

    Still around, he only usually posts on the X-Wing boards to bash the game though. He's had around two or three different accounts on here since last posting as Gadge (see Bolshevik65 and Soviet65 for further details).

    It came out all of six months ago, so was probably designed with 2nd Edition very much in mind. Certainly there were no changes to the stats or dial between editions (then again, there weren't any changes to the TIE Fighter's stats or dial either! ). We've seen the two configurations (which have been tweaked slightly), and some of the upgrades that are likely to be bolted on though so we can do a bit of limited theorycrafting over builds.

    Not sure if all of these points are needs as much as simple rebalancing. Sure, HLC got neutered - not just for Gunboats, but for pretty much all it's carriers. But Ion Cannons are improved (range bonuses, stacking tokens and usability with XG-1) and ordnance now doesn't require you to spend a Lock across the board and has multiple shots, meaning you should need to Reload less often. I'm guessing a cannon slot will be available as standard with the Gunboat now. It would be good to know if Linked Battery, Advanced SLAM and Guidance Chips are shill around, but knowing what we do so far, the smart money would say not.

    Yeah, it's great to see Ion Cannons are now effective with the XG-1 title. Perfect to line a follow up ordnance shot! 😁

    again, pretty sure it was Vader who was issuing the orders!
