    It's not that intimidating.  I used to bullseye PtL Interceptors at range 3 with my X-Wing and B-Wings back home; they're not much squishier than Phantoms...

    I did this somewhere by looking at the average damage numbers, but it wasn't a true "shots required to kill". I should be doing that in the next month though, for all the ships, it will be an epic MathWing post! 
     
    Basically, x/4/2/2 is about twice as durable as x/3/3/0, using statistical averages. So it's about as hard to kill as a pair of TIE Fighters, assuming you get the same number and quality of shots on both. For reference the Firespray is about the most durable ship in the game at ~2.5x as durable as x/3/3/0.
     
    The obvious issue is getting shots on ACD Phantoms, it's like playing whack-a-mole with piranhas, with your bare hands.
     
    The raw statline value of 4/4/2/2 is about 28.5 points at PS1. Whisper is 37 points at PS9, meaning you're paying 8.5 points for +8PS and 3 extra actions every round (pilot ability, free cloak action, decloak roll). That is an incredible value. A free action normally costs 3 points, so you are getting 8+9 = 17 points of value, and only paying 8.5 points for it.

    With all the Anti-Phantom lists out there, you need to play an anti-anti-phantom list.

    I don't think asking someone to follow the rules should ever cause other player to see you as a jerk, as long as you explain why and are polite about it. If the other player wants to do something for tidiness, convenience ect. they should ask before they start doing it.
     
    For me, I'm usually fine with the shield tokens set by the cards, but if my opponent wanted to do that with other tokens I'd politely ask him to keep them on or near the ship because that throws me off.

    Thank you very much.  I always politely ask my if I can do something.  If I cannot then I will abide by that decision.  I find that it is better to treat people nicely, it makes everything we do that much more enjoyable.

    R7-T1 is neat with Enhanced Sensors. Combine that with outmanuver and things can get interesting with ethan. Bank boost before your manuver with a target lock. Then k-turn so you have a good chance to get a locked ship in your arc with lowered agility

    So... It just dawned on me that those are crit tokens. My buddies and I have been using them as generic damage tokens, keeping damage cards with the ship cards and tokens with the mini... That explains my frustration that not all the ships come with enough damage tokens to completly destroy the ship.
