    Have we have some people here who tried dedicated counter list against it? Like a crack swarm with 6 crack shots? I have the following list that I played couple weeks ago and it literally took only 2 rounds of attack to completely wipe out all my opponents 3 ships which included (3P0 Miranda Tlt, Red Ace Comm relay, R2 and an a Prototype pilot) ok my rolls where near perfect but still - Howl (Crack+Hull) - Scourge (Crack) an excellent Tie against high health ship like the Scout or Mauler both are good - 4 Black (Crack) 100 pts Or - Soontir (RG, Stealth, Auto, PTL) - Jax (RG, Hull or Stealth, Auto, PTL) - Inquisitor (Title, Auto, PTL) 100 pts I am sure those 2 builds can do something against the Triple U boat in 2 very different ways. Ultimate arc Dodge, survivability + focus denial or Evade denier + multiple attacks, all before the U-boat gets to shoot. With 6 crack shots, one U boat should be down in the first engagement almost 100%
  2. Just one? I bought another two Mist Hunter expansions after I found out there was only one tractor beam upgrade inside.I'm totally serious. Still, it's safe to say that if FFG had just posted a news update in the previously published news stories on the FFG website and told customers about the changes to the included upgrades prior to the release of Wave 8 then they could have avoided a lot of negative feelings among customers. Is this a "serious" problem? Not to most people. Will it negatively impact sales of Wave 8? Not in any measurable way. That said, every business and economics class I've taken that addressed the complexities of "client/customer relationships" said the same thing: The "little things" have a cumulative effect for better or worse. You improve the relationship between your business and customers over time if you make clients/customers feel like they are important to you; by promptly responding to their needs/concerns and by showing them you "go the extra mile." Conversely, you hurt the client relationship over time if customers feel like you don't care about them or their concerns/complaints. The idea that "little things have a cumulative effect" became even more obvious over the last two decades thanks to the Internet and social media. Since businesses are more connected to customers than ever before (via discussion forums, website comments, blogs, YouTube videos, Facebook, etc.) there are more ways to do "little things" that help your business and more opportunities to do little things to make customers angry. Amen! :-)
  3. Even that, honestly when you have people like myself who have spent about 2k on X-wing and buying every single expansion or core set and on alot of occasions multiple copies of them. If a customer like that, email you and refer to false advertising, you pay the 50 cent postage, you make sure to apologize and you send the card that's it! Lol. You do not refer to the fine print on the packaging.
  4. I still want my 2nd beam! Lol. False advertising and not making announcement about the product change... like if we would not notice... I mean cmon, it's insulting our intelligence here. I had an issue like that in the past for an inaccurate picture of a product that I had bought online. I took a screen shot before they had the time to change it. The guy at first did not want to hear any of it, when I told him that I had proof and that I was reporting to PayPal... Well the guy refunded me and told me to keep the wrongly advertised product. Kind of stuff that PayPal don't mess around with. Some people do not care about the extra beam, I do and I can even mail them back the useless 2nd baffle if they want! Lol. I just hope that for those who ask for another one, FFG will just mail one without any arguing on their part. Also for those who say: "The extra beam token is there for an extra in case" well no it is not! I remember when I got my decimator, there was only one extra evade for Ysanne and that's it, thet did not put an extra one in case. It was obviously a last minute change and they screwed up and people noticed it obviously.
  5. They are not meant to be used on the new aftermarker plastic wheel? If not, well they are totally useless... Lol
  6. Well I remember FFG in the beginning of X-wing, their customer service was stellar. Always really helpfull, really fast to answer to emails. Now with Asmodee its a disaster... I got a reply from an email that I did a month half ago 3 weeks ago and still nothing now. Even tried to call Asmodee directly... No answer. What is pissing me off is that there is no community manager or anything. When you make serious blunders in a row like that. (false advertisement with the beam, major screw up with the bomb slam thing) First of all you get your community manager to show asap on your official forum and apologize and offer a reasonnable solution to your customer base. That's what most high profile company will do. Everybody is pissed here in my area and for obvious reasons, the 2 Baffle does not make any sense whatsoever and there is already list of M3 with multiple tractor beam out there who needed and was counting on that extra card. Staying silent when you screw up like that and not having a community manager take over and be vocal about it means that you could careless about your customer base and that is a HUGE mistake even more so when you are the #1 miniature game on the market . Its simple FFG should apologize for what happened. Send a bunch of Tractor beam to the supplier in each country who are going to send some to their retailer on their next ffg order. Ask the store to show a proof of purchase and give a tractor beam card to the customer. That's it... Really simple, everybody would be happy and for those who never goes on the forum and play casually, well... They will not be impacted anyway. So if they actually read their forum they should get someone from ffg to reply and apologize and put in place something like that

    Can't wait to try my Crack swarm list against that triple u-boat. It's totally possible to kill one scout on the first engagement. On the second round its a range 1 bump fest, at least one of the 2 remaining scout will not be able to shoot his torpedo. If the swarm player can manage to lose only one tie and kill a Scout before it has the chance to fire on the first round of attack. I am pretty sure that it is game over... But I just can't wait to put those 2 builds against each other and for sure someone will come up at our local store with a triple u boat list pretty soon.

    The 3 Scouts

    Played last night the following list and it was pretty strong and alot of fun: Nrdu: -Crack -Homing -GC -Cloaking Scout: -Dead -Boba -Proton -EM -GC Slaver: -K4 -Outlaw -EU -Gonk I just refuse to jump in the band wagon and buy 2 extra Jumpmaster as I know you can make pretty solid build much more versatile with 1 Scout... I played against 4x Blue with AS on them. Not the most powerful build, but very tanky. The shock is obvious at first... Nrdu 5 dice homing + crack, combined with the first proton volley = Death blue. So he basically started the game with a 100 point list of 3 Blue AS... Second turn, he lost another Bwing, but they were able to fight back and did some damage to my Scout. After the 3rd turn my Scout was with no shield left and 5 Hull was shooting at range 3 to a Bwing without doing any damage whatsoever. The game was lost for my opponent anyway, because my Slaver was able to boost away and for a few turns got the time to replenish all but 1 shield (Gonk on a EU Yv is the sh*t btw) and a cloak Nrdu is alot of fun and surprisingly really hard to kill but my Scout would definitely not had won me the game after the ordnance was fired and it was only against a 1 agility ship. Not only that my opponent had an extremely bad retaliating roll, like doing only 2 damage overall on his 2nd attack...with 3 bwings The thing is... If you can blunt that Alpha strike... A 2 dice turret is just doing virtually nothing. I can easily imagine a lone Soontir single handedly decimating 2 Scout that has only their primary turret, with them getting slowly eaten alive and be helpless about it...
  9. Actually you could easily replace Jyn with a basic set of Sabs and it would be even more powerful. I did not put 2 because I do not own 2 sets of Sabs. Alternately I have done another variant of this build with Han instead of the Elite Sabs and Jyn. I do noy agree with others that Han is not good. I like him alot in tandem with 3P0 and having the initiative 3 turns in a row thanks to I make my own luck is simply game changing, and Han's return fire could trigger quite easily when 3P0 is adjacent to him! Han still has 12 health and MH is always there to give him the recover! He's a leader too! His surges can give 3 extra damage easily the only character in the game who can do 3 extra damage because of his surges
  10. The new Medic droid is insane! Ridiculously good especially combined with other characters that can recover. I have been using : Luke Leia Mhd-19 Elite Sabs Jyn 3p0 Gideon The other day I had Leia at 1 health and in 2 turns she recovered everything. Single purpose and Miracle worker are really good... If your opponent do not take care of M-19 early... He's going to loose. Even M-19 can recover 5 health a turn... Extremely hard to kill if not focused fired on. And if they focus fire on him... Leia, Luke and the Sabs will unleash some serious damage. I have not yet lost with this list... The recover power is too much! Lol
  11. The dark side I sense in her! That evil grin! :-P
  12. I played also the same list but with Han instead of Jyn and Sabs and surprisingly, with command cards like Take Initiative, Make my own luck, Devotion and Son of Skywalker combined with the focus of 3p0 and Gideon without forgeting the combine fire of Leia. There was a game, that I have the initiative for 3 turns in a row... It was a massacre... Not even funny and Han next 3p0 he's pretty hard to kill and surprisingly good!

  14. They do have pierce 2 (that regular Storms don't) and setting up a focus/weaken just to use it later in the turn with an elite officer or Kayn. Seems to be quite powerful on top of their healing power! Actually the Elite are meant to be used with Kayn. You can easily do 2 attack with 2 Troopers who have G, G, B! They have one more health, no restrictions on movement, for one more point compared to the regular elite it's a steal!
  15. He's right, there is no limitation to only outdoor for AT-ST in skirmish, they can go anywhere.
