    2E Norra and 3CP0

    Ok, fair enough. Its still interior to a focus action, sadly. It's good if you just want to play defense, ...but mor si much if you need to be offensive.

    2E Norra and 3CP0

    The issue with 3p0 is you have to spend a calculate token, which means instead of focusing you have to perform a calculate action. So he doesn't work all that great in this edition, imo. Now, if you can get multiple calculate tokens in a round somehow when using him, 3p0 makes sense, but doing a calculate action instead of any of the other actions is infinitely inferior in the case of many of these abilities.

    Tomorrow

    I want to see Corran in an Xwing, and what they do with Dash Rendar.
  4. Vander, it wouldn't be the first time they have done that, so it's actually really safe to assume those two conversion kits are two of the missing skus, and I like the idea of a scum falcon to coincide with the movie.

    GAMA?

    FFG doing a presentation at GAMA this week by chance?
  8. Pandemonium in Garden City as has a large X-Wing presence. Let us know where you are and you will find someone wanting to game some.
  9. Latest rumor is the 28th of September
  10. Hey all, the MichiganGT is returning again, with X-Wing. Come out and show the rest of us Michiganders how Lansing does it! Great prize support, super fun! Register at www.michigangt.com .
  11. Love the idea Magnus. I tend to agree with you on the cost cutting approach as well. If you can collectively reduce the cost by 2 to 3 points per ship, it makes them much more viable as well.
  12. These were exactly my thoughts as well. It's meant to be a porkins droid, but can be useful on others. I still believe that every droid should provide an Elite slot is above PS2 and no elite slot already, which would easily fix a lot of these T-65 pilots. If Hobbie, Garven, Red squad pilot and to some degree Tarn all had EPT's, I think we'd see a lot more play out of them. They all have some of the best abilities in the game, but they are seriously gimped because of a combination of dial and no ept on a ship that doesn't get any reposition in a game where every ship that is top tier has repositioning.
  13. Magnus, wow, sorry man. I just reread some of the stuff I put up there and I mistyped some things. lol. On R5-D8 it should read: At the end of the Combat phase, you may discard a facedown damage card, then roll a defense die. On a Focus result, discard this astromech (At 3 points, it was still way too tough to use. Make it so just on focus results, and can always happen. Combined with IA, it can prove to be very tanky, as long as it doesn't blow itself up in the process, and only works on facedown damage cards. Porkins will still love this mech).
  14. One of the best fixes you can give any of these astromechs is to give them a secondary effect equal to R2-D6. All useless mechs, take away the action header, make it at certain situations like said (end phase, whatnot), and also state that if placing this astromech onto a ship that is PS3+, the ship gains an EPT slot. IMHO, This immediately brings X-Wings, and even E-Wings, right back into top tier. By also doing this, you aren't really boosting Biggs either, because Biggs wants r4d6. Here's how I would do it: R2-D6, 1pt - Gain an elite slot if PS3+ and don't already have a slot. Reduce the cost of Elite upgrades by 1 to a minimum of 0. Can only equip to ships that don't have Elite upgrades. Keep Unique R3, 2 pt - Gain an Elite pilot skill slot if the ship doesn't have one and is PS3+. When attacking with your primary weapon, if you spend a focus token to modify at least one focus result during the "Modify Attack Dice" step, then assign one evade token to your ship. (Some randomness still there, but at least you are not sacrificing offense for defense. Even if it only stops one damage per match it is better than Hull Upgrade.) R5-K6, 2pt - Gain an Elite pilot skill slot if the ship doesn't have one and is PS3+. After spending your target lock, you may immediately acquire a target lock on the same ship. You cannot spend this target lock during this attack. (By taking out the randomness it is better than it was but still strictly worse than Fire Control System because you need a lock to spend to set it up. That is just how bad it is.) R7, 2pt - Gain an Elite pilot skill slot if the ship doesn't have one and is PS3+. Keep normal ability. No change needed. Targeting Astromech, 2 pt - Gain an Elite pilot skill slot if the ship doesn't have one and is PS3+. Keep normal ability. This encourages the use of Stay on Target. R2-F2, 3 pt - When defending, if the attacker is not in your firing arc, roll one additional defense die. (Wasting the action for one die is almost always worse unless you know you will be defending at least 4 times. Its supposed to be Biggs droid and he was getting shot at from behind by Vader so let's put some theme into it.) (This one stays as you designed, I like it) R5-D8, 3 pt - Gain an Elite pilot skill slot if the ship doesn't have one and is PS3+. At the end of the Combat phase, you may discard a facedown damage card, then roll a defense die. On a Focus result, discard one of your facedown damage cards. (At 3 points, it was still way too tough to use. Make it so just on focus results, and can always happen. Combined with IA, it can prove to be very tanky, as long as it doesn't blow itself up in the process, and only works on facedown damage cards. Porkins will still love this mech). This does two things. It fixes useless mechs, and it also fixes X-Wings and E-Wings. This doesn't affect T-70's that much, they like all the other mechs. It might affect ARC's, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Beside, the Arc's we have tend to want R2D2, BB-8, and R3A2, which those should all stay as is.
  15. Ladies and Gents, Nova is coming to a close, and Regionals are right around the corner. Come join us at the MichiganGT this year for X-Wing and Destiny. Registrations are still open, and I would encourage anyone wanting to go to pre-register. The more pre-registered, the more overall prize support we can put in. So far we have Gold Swaudron Podcast Alt-Arts, FFG official prize support from OP kits and support they are sending, customer MiGT tokens and templates, and more. Join us for some great fun!!! I look forward to seeing you there!!!
