  1. Learn the hotkeys. Playing with another player familiar with Vassal usually takes less time than a tabletop game. Flying lists with no more than 3 ships will help a bit. Have your lists pre-built and loaded into a log file so you can get straight to the action.
  2. Mandalorian Merc Attani Mindlink Outlaw Tech (38) Mandalorian Merc Attani Mindlink Outlaw Tech (38) Black Sun Ace Attani Mindlink (24) All PS5 for maximum shenanigans.
  3. What on Earth are you talking about? Lower PS linked pilots will have already moved and acted... Mindlink benefits a lower skilled pilot who takes a red maneuver, because the higher skilled pilot can perform a green and then focus. Didn't get much sleep last night and started speaking in backwards talk. Flip all that around its something vaguely coherent. A lower skilled pilot can perform a Focus for a higher skilled pilot who is going to take a red maneuver! Backwards is the same :-P

  5. Nothing brings in the honies like a Huge Base, knamean?
  6. Always nice to see Harrison Ford do his thing on the big screen. As for the rest? Not really clear on why I should care. I know Disney is capable of making Star Wars character that I care about - Rebels is brilliant. But the TFA crew? Let's see. WhatsHerName is cute, mysterious, arbitrarily puissant and omnicompetent. Little personality, less character. Black Guy is utterly terrified of lots of things (monsters, stormtroopers, etc) but willing to ignore this personality-defining trait entirely because he thinks WhatsHerName is hot. Not believable. Poe is a heroic badass who we get to know for all of five minutes. Not the worst, but lots of room for improvement.
  7. Ace of your choice Stay on Target Targeting Astromech Integrated Astromech Could be pretty nasty. Generally falls in the 30 point range.
  8. Danger Zone Don't really care what the rules text says
  9. I don't think there's anything wrong with the Firespray, aside from the irrelevance of the Imperial pilot abilities. It's just really boring to fly. I recall it was having some strong tournament finishes paired with an IG last year. No particular reason it couldn't do well now.
  10. Frosties are the best. The best.
  11. Store champs & regionals were pretty much over by the time TLTs hit tables. I'm not sure there'v been m/any major tournaments in the interim. Almost certainly not since the FAQ which nerfed fat point-fortressing pancakes. If you do want to talk strategy, you are basically just looking for a way to reliably destroy at least one Y-wing before it has a chance to fire. Ideally while limiting opportunities for return fire. This means secondary weapons and pilot skill bids.
  12. Aren't you a little short for a Storm Trooper?
  13. I was promised an ode. No ode was forthcoming. Deeply disappointed.
  14. I think the challenge coins are a really cool prize. I'm pretty sure they'll be a popular item in my local scene.
  15. As a general rule of thumb, low PS bombers work well for mines (Proxy, Cluster, Connor) and high PS bombers work well for bombs.
  16. Double or triple Hound is another possibility. Though I'm not sure anyone is actually flying it.
