  1. I have also played a similar list with 2 interceptors as well. It has for all purposes done really well. I know a lot of people scoff at the lowly interceptor but it still has a place in my formation.
  2. Yep, They are pointed right and take some skill and a lot of luck to get out of some bad flying. They are fine.
  3. After the latest Supreme Court case findings with the Hobby Lobby dispute and putting more legal grounds on Corporations being people I sent an email to FFG asking them to have my baby... After about a month of silence I was given a very cryptic message about never contacting them again, and something about possible restraining orders and how I should evaluate my priorities in life... Some people just don't want to start families and I don't get it. With my German heritage and brilliant background in computers I would think that FFG would be flattered to continue a bloodline with me. They are not.
  4. Walmart is pretty hardcore on street dates when it comes to video games and toys. I honestly believe if there is one with the FFG shipment Walmart will enforce it.
  5. This is pretty nifty. I actually really like Echo. Not enough people play this pilot.
  6. I don't know what is wrong with College kids these days, back in my day we did not have Starbucks and every meal was ramen with either ketchup packets or taco bell hot sauce packets. If you were lucky during the holidays your parents would send you crappy re-gifted Christmas cookies and or other hand made treats that the neighbors left at their doorstep.
  7. Lies... everyone needs more interceptors. Even if you had 10 you could use at least 10 more.
  8. Perhaps the old adage if at first you don't succeed try try again, should be forever ignored going forward with your endeavors of marriage.
  9. But to bring something on topic. From my experience with girls and gaming (Mind you it is only 20 years or so experience) It is very uncomfortable for many women to be in a store being gawked at by men who have only ever heard about or read about women either from school or Wikipedia.
  10. I will have you know, I have knitted an X-Wing doily. So even though your example is funny there are men out there that are straight that know how to knit.
  11. I mean don't get me wrong pirates are great, but like previously mentioned. Bacon is better and so are girls.
  12. Nothing is funnier than when your opponent gleefully believes that you are going to use that K-Turn and then all of a sudden your nowhere near where that K-Turn was supposed to put you.
  13. Rebel Aces will never be released. It is not for lack of trying on FFG's part but more to do with the fact that there are no actual Rebel Aces... They all suck. But like everyones favorite green guy on the forums +-1st week of September.

    3 Defender Build

    When I started this game I picked up 2 Defenders and 3 Phantoms. After a couple of weeks playing with both ships I can say that at least for me the Defender is a pain to learn. It is expensive, and quirky and for some reason gets shot up a lot. But I think I am starting to get the hang of it. I play two of them in 100 points and they are a blast when the stars are aligned.
  15. Very awesome suggestions. The new faction adds some spice to the going on's of the galaxy. You will have to keep me up to date one what you decide, I would love to have another persons perspective of an epic campaign.
  16. You are not. But I do believe they (FFG) are hampered by what they could release as epic ships for the Imperials... I mean what small Imperial cruisers are the right size to fit into epic games? They would have to release Imperial Super Epics to fit a regular Star Destroyer in the game. I get your point, however : FFG guys are very smart, and when they introduced Epic, they did with Rebel Epic Ships, and upgrade cards not being specifics to Rebels not mentioning Rebel only. I just cannot imagine that they did NOT have a single clue about a potential Huge Imperial ship since the inception of Epic. This seems just not possible. True, I see where you are going with this. Could they possibly be keeping a wrap on things until the new tv show comes out?
  17. I think it would be cool to include some of his other ships. I mean there is more than just the Slave 1.
  18. These are all great starting point ideas. I am actually going to host a campaign next year using these three games and will keep a detailed account of what is going on either via a gaming blog or here on the forums. One thing I am mulling over is possibly having two games going on at the same time, be it assault and armada or armada and x wing and as major things happen in each of those games they affect what is happening in the other game.
  19. Either the FAQ is typo, or else "Echo" and "Whisper" are actually code names used by who ever happens to be flying those ships. Honestly it would be wicked cool if they just happen to be code names assigned to those specific ships.
  20. Mind blown! FFG/Star Wars the first pro transgender gaming system.
  21. You are not. But I do believe they (FFG) are hampered by what they could release as epic ships for the Imperials... I mean what small Imperial cruisers are the right size to fit into epic games? They would have to release Imperial Super Epics to fit a regular Star Destroyer in the game.
  22. I'm not dismissing shields (assuming this was aimed at me); I'm saying that lack of shields isn't a problem for the Imperial faction as a whole, because you can easily build an Imperial list where every ship has shields. This is true. Since I started not to long ago I have been playing Phantoms non stop. Shields are our friends. I have always thought the Rebels as more of a swiss army knife of sorts and the Imperials as glass cannons. Different enough in playstyle that one is not generally better than the other, they just each fill niches.

    New to game

    yes.. but you don't get Howlrunner Sure - but outside of competitive play you don't need to physically own the pilot card in order to play her. By all means buy the TIE expansion later down the line, but starting out you are better served by making do with a proxy card or two and spending your money elsewhere to add a little diversity to your squads Woah there.. let us not get carried away. Howlrunner cannot be proxied. It is an official Imperial edict.
  24. IG-2000. It is going to be great fun flying as him.
