    Reprints of older sets

    Not really "better," imo, just different, just like each reprint of a ship. I've noticed that the same ships from different print runs are normally different shades.

    This game is getting better

    This is what every local XWing community should be doing! If some experienced meta players come in and crush everyone, it can destroy the community you are trying to build. Without a solid supportive community, there will be no opponents!

    Question for adaptive ailerons

    AA makes Strikers super slippery! I really like using them with low PS so I can get position on the enemy. Usually Im able to make a mess of their maneuvers and often cause them to lose actions. Then look out as 4 red dice each from FIVE Strikers come rollong in WITH Focus! We have an escalation league coming up and Im actually considering a SWARM of SEVEN!

    Question for adaptive ailerons

    I use Scarifs and normally move first accordingly. Hence, my maneuver planning takes AA as part of the planning and would screw me up considerably if I didnt do it upon revealing. I dont know how you'd forget unless you only have one and dont play em often!

    How do people not know what "intent" means?

    Which turned into Common Core which has now turned into "states do as you wish!" As it should be!

    Mama, tell me a story about Tie Strikers...

    I just bought Striker #6 to run in Escalation league! I am thinking of running them with a Tie S/F.

    How good are TIE Strikers really?

    I just bought #6 last night for Escalation! Im thinking of running them with a Tie S/F... I haven't lost a game running all Strikers yet! Throwing 3-4 red dice on five ships causes a lot of damage early on, depleting most builds in early rounds.

    Mama, tell me a story about Tie Strikers...

    All Scarifs wit AA (adaptive aelerons) and LWF (lightweight frame.) I'm a "fly and shoot" kind of pilot!

    X-Wings currently???

    So how are X-Wings working for everybody currently? In our local league I've run a couple of builds using 2-T70s and 2-T65s with wonderful results! Forgot to mention, I was running all PS2. Am I seeing something unique?

    Mama, tell me a story about Tie Strikers...

    I run 5 Strikers sparingly as this list has demolished everything I've flown against! I don't want to scare ppl away. Another awesome build has been 2-T-70s and 2T-65s all at PS 2!! It rocks almost as well!

    A ship that "clicks" with you.

    STRIKERS! Give me 5 Strikers with Lightweight Frame and Adaptive Ailerons and look out!!! Fly and shoot, that's my game!

    Can't seem to clutch with the Raider

    I think of the Raider as the escort ship! Its there to tackle fighters and support the smalls! Where are yout bombers/Punishers? Those are the ships with the ordnance to bring down a Tantive! We play EPIC epic, where I have a Raider, THREE Gozantis and waves of smalls. One Gozanti is usually loaded with four bombers and is tasked with the mission of taking out the Tantives rear. The Raider hangs back and delivers range 4-5 shots. I let the smalls get in close and mix it up.

    X-Wing at 150 points

    We often play 150 v 150, 5 Interceptors are nasty! I have wanted to run all four IG-2000's with their titles, 144 pts leaving a bit for upgrading.

    Could we fix the Firespray...

    Fix??? I didn't know it was broke! I haven't lost with a Firespary, ever... I don't play them often, but when I do, I win...

    XG-1 "Star Wing" Assault Gunboat Thread

    FIVE Strikers are MONSTERS! I flew 5 Scariffs with AA and LWF. They were crazy good!
