  1. What 3 ship list got anything to do with what I said? I just prove my point that Empire got a ships that provide crew slot and are not only carriers for them.
  2. What are you talking about? Decimator and Phantom are only for transporting crewmen? Last I heard these are pretty potent ships in it's own right.
  3. You know there is pretty nice cheap card for 1 pt - it is called Inspiring Recruit, you can put it on Deci, Lambda, TIE Shuttle or Upsilon, legends say it is pretty good against stressing lists. God I hate whining so much, lets just cry about assumed imbalance instead of trying to find some working solution!
  4. Does Vassal games count? If so here is the list I played a couple of times already on Vassal - all games were victories, with only one loss where only ships left were full health Poe and Kylo and we called time (opponent had more points in Kylo): Fenn Rau (Sheathipede) — Sheathipede-class Shuttle 20 Veteran Instincts 1 Inspiring Recruit 1 R2 Astromech 1 Vectored Thrusters 2 Ship Total: 25 Poe Dameron (PS9) — T-70 X-Wing 33 Veteran Instincts 1 R2-D2 4 Advanced Optics 2 Autothrusters 2 Black One 1 Ship Total: 43 Wedge Antilles — X-Wing 29 Veteran Instincts 1 Flight-Assist Astromech 1 Integrated Astromech 0 Ship Total: 31 Fenn is great little supporting ship, especially in this configuration; he works as swiss army knife - provides debuff and stress and damage protection.
  5. You don't seriously compare case of Autothrusters to rotating system of standard MtG, do you? Because publishing this expansion didn't invalidate in any way, shape or form ships that were published earlier. It was direct boost for many of them. Same thing with TLT, that was direct boost to previously available Y-Wings.
  6. I love topics like that. It makes types that like to spread doom & gloom emerge. You know, those armchair generals that are masters of theory X-Wing, whining and pointlessly theorycrafting, yet they never won anything in the tournament or never care to move into nearest store to play this game. X-Wing is alive and well. I live in town near Warsaw and our local scene exploded just recently - on Thursday evenings we always have at least 4 people ready to play this game and more are coming. It is far away from unbearable bloat in X-Wing, and you know why? Because it was very simple game in the begining - there are still plenty of room for new mechanics. Especially given the fact that almost all of the rules are on the upgrade and ship cards, so you don't have to learn it all. All problems come from bad wording, but there are no rules that are hard to learn or remember. Deciding factor there is not a balance or urge to keep things fresh; make no mistake - the only factor for WotC is to make more money by forcing players to constantly buy new stuff. If X-Wing will ever come close to MtG buisness model I am out; and with me quite significiant part of player base.
  7. As they say: "Great minds think in a same way."
  8. He is indeed a great pilot for Rebels, but what I find the most positive about him is the fact that he provides protection and support for other ships without need of flying in strict formation. It opens up some pseudo-ace individual play for Rebel pilots. I will try following list for sure: Fenn Rau (Sheathipede) — Sheathipede-class Shuttle 20 Veteran Instincts 1 Inspiring Recruit 1 R2 Astromech 1 Vectored Thrusters 2 Ship Total: 25 Poe Dameron (PS9) — T-70 X-Wing 33 Veteran Instincts 1 R2-D2 4 Advanced Optics 2 Autothrusters 2 Black One 1 Ship Total: 43 Wedge Antilles — X-Wing 29 Veteran Instincts 1 Flight-Assist Astromech 1 Integrated Astromech 0 Ship Total: 31
  9. I played a lot of games using Thweek on Vassal. PS steal is in almost 100% cases more beneficial than stealing ability (assuming you got healthy Initiative bid). You got to use full potential of Starviper Mk II barell roll and you do this by moving last.
  10. Lovely archetype name you got there sir. I approve.
  11. Great idea! I always thought that mechanic of X-Wing and theme of modern air combat would be the best combination. One can hope some publisher will get this.
  12. Best one so far!
  13. My favourite Poe build coming into new meta: Cheap Poe for 31 pts (PS 8) equipped with: Veteran Instincts, Advanced Optics, Title, Autothrusters, R2D2 In total 41 pts, enough to put fully loaded Expertise Rey as Wingman. Unless PS wars will force me to field PS 11 Poe I don't see a reason to take 33 pts Poe over 31 pts Poe when Advanced Optics are here, with the exception of some Intensity play.
  14. In what way? Towards whom? If you don't want to see any spoilers then don't watch them, avoid certain topics or FB groups and you will be fine. Spoilers are as old as the miniatures games themselves and never before people were bu**hurt about spoilers. Quite the contrary - these were one of the most sought news. Well, I guess these days it is trendy to be offended by anything, so some people decided to be offended by spoilers. Top kek indeed.
  15. My golden rule when building two ships list is to have Gunner, TLT or 4 dice attack. Otherwise two attacks are not enough to seriously dent enemy ships, especially aces like Fenn. So yes, you have PS 11 on both ships but the problem is they don't hit at all.
