    A fix for epic?

    I havnt played Epic often but I agree with the Action Economy problem,and note that the combat effectiveness problem was partially solved by adding more action economy in the form of automated protocals (Epic PTL), Ordinance tubes (Free reload actions), and optimized generators (not strictly action economy, but energy economy, which is related) I would like to see epic ships have a Teams Stat, next to their hull/shields/ect, to represent how many things they can do simotaniusly- that is, how many actions the ship can take on it's turn, and remove the 1-of-each-action rule just for ships with a Team stat. If I were setting it up, epic ships would all have Calculate, Track (epic lock, with caveats such as needing a team to reapply it every round), and Reinforce, with multiple reinforces stacking but still have the 1 point chip damage rule. Additional action types can be ship or upgrade based. Some epic upgrades may require multiple actions to activate.

    Post points change- E-wing swarm?

    I've been looking at double Ewing and hotshot gunner Miranda, or double ewing double warden with proton bombs.

    4 dice plus FCS is a fake 5th die. For ion, I think the varience of extra dice is better than the certanty of more mods, because it's not enough to hit, you need to hit hard enough to ionize at least once per round.

    XG-1 "Star Wing" Assault Gunboat Thread

    Time to embrace the crazy. Nu Squadron Pilot (32) Fire-Control System (2) Ion Torpedoes (6) Os-1 Arsenal Loadout (0) Total: 40 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0 This is effectively an unmodified 5 die ion cannon on SLAMs or Reloads with a range 1 dead zone. Either walk targets off the board or take them out with chip damage from up to 5 of these things on the board. ASLAM would be an improvement to allow focus on SLAM orSLAM out and reload, but it doesnt help with pursuit ions where you 1 straight-reload-fire every round. It also takes you off the 40 pts critival value.

    The idea is that, ion torpedos being a better ion cannon.

    How hard is it to line up a bullseye shot on an ionized enemy? I wonder if there's a place for Ion torpedo/procket or ion torpedo HLC.

    Wave 4 Announcement

    He was TOTALLY force sensitive. But he was not a JEDI. In term of the RPG, he had FR 1 and most of the sense tree.

    Lieutenant Karsabi (37) Outmaneuver (6) Fire-Control System (2) Adv. Proton Torpedoes (6) Afterburners (6) Xg-1 Assault Configuration (0) Ion Cannon (5) Total: 62 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0 Karasabi gets an early lock, lands ion with FSC, then SLAMS into range 1 for the advanced torp, taking the stress to ignore the weapon disabled. Worth his points? probably not. But it does use his ability.

    The force card hate.

    If Kanan was inside his own arc, this would be an amazing build.

    Is anyone playing gunner crew NOT named Han?

    Hotshot Miranda bomber, I roll 1 die and still strip a token. Doesnt work on a missileboat, though.

    Your Black Friday Haul?

    Star Citizen, and a larger RAM to run it.

    The proposed "TL nerf' talent is basically a weaker version of pre-banhammer Composure. Being able to boost>White focus was amazing for the few weeks I could use it. The talent proposed isnt nearly so nice.

    A New Type of TIE?

    Not blocky enough to be mining guild. Any eyeball or dagger shape means it's imperial.

    A New Type of TIE?

    Try and tell me that's not a Mining Guild earthquake machine that the sepratists are using. It's a tool being misused for war, not a weapon of war.

    In my play, that doesnt seem to be an issue. You arnt turning into the enemy, you are zooming past them and getting a defensive token, then boosting out of range and locking, then resetting for another pass. When you include that this version doesnt discard the lock, the R1 bubble is a non-issue.

    R7 Astromech (3 points) When defending against a target you have locked, you may reroll 1 defense die. Unfortunately, the Resistance stole all the 1.0 R7s.

    Vulture swarm: Staying alive? Is it even viable?

    I've heard an interesting fan explanation on B1s being centrally controlled vs independant. The B1s were designed for central control, but after naboo, they needed to retrofit basic independance to avoid another potential disaster. They couldnt add proccessing, but they could repurpose some of it- particularly the vocabulator's processor. So the independant B1s can think, as long as they say EVERYTHING they're thinking.

    Has anyone tried flying Afterburner Starwings? 3turn-boost-3turn SLAM gives some amazing coverage behind you.

    Right. Imperial aestetic.

    A New Type of TIE?

    It's literally the same thing, but canon. If Dark Empire was remade, it would be a Mining Guild operation producing Vulture droids.

    Brilliant Evasion Luke 2 attack die Swarm Killer?

    Stealth device luke backed by Jyn Erso in a Sabine Attack Shuttle (also with stealth and debris gambit) 3 defence dice, infinite focus, and an evade until Sabine goes down.

    Purple Actions

    Whatever mechanic it uses will need to explain why the aethersprite doesnt have an evade token to go with the purple evade action. That seems to lean toward in-combat use. (palp would be able to act in other people's combats, if true- a better version of his current ability, but not quite his old ability.)
