    barabelsftw got a reaction from Acheron143 in A New Vessery List   
    Going to try to play test this at some point. If anyone has thoughts or time to try it out let me know what you think:
     
    Vessery with HLC and either Calculation, VI, or AR (43)
    Tempest with title and Accuracy Corrector (21)
    2 Scimitars with fletchette torpedoes (36)

    My idea for the imperial analog of BBBBZ:
     
    Tempest with title and accuracy corrector x 4
    Backstabber

    Likewise I've used it on keyan with a HLC to great effect, you can slow cruise forwards making sure you're always pointing at a target sniping away.... and he thrives on the stress.
     
    I used to use PTL for focus plus TL every turn but prefer now to be able to change direction

    Keyan Farlander with Stay on Target, Advanced Sensor, B wing/E2, and Navigator is INCREDIBLE!   The whole dial becomes available. Even the K-turn. All you do is let everything thats under 7 pilot skill move, do your action before you reveal your dial, and change your dial to what ever you like.  The only down side is if you don't line up a shot you are unable to remove your stress and cannot use Stay on Target the next turn.

    I've been watching this thread for some time now and reading all the post. I've typed out replies many times and stopped  and thought to my self "don't get involved". Unions fall into politics category for me and there are two things I avoid publicly commenting on and they are Religion and politics.

    All you have to do is change the timing of the decloak and everything gets fixed. Treat the decloak action as PS0 so they have to choose decloak before all ships move. The better players will still survive with Phantoms and it will bring the power level down enough to not make them and auto win against most ships.

    Assuming you did not need the TL to hit and only rolled one eyeball. I think I'd still prefer lone wolf or predator on him.

    E2 and EI are both mods so this can't work.
     
    But I commend you on your efforts to try and make Keyan more viable. I for one wish he was.

    It's nice to have a 1-point offensive ept finally. It's not awesome, but for one point I'll throw it on something as long as Decimators are popular.

    And it gives your opponent a rough choice: Do I target corran who can slip away and regen if I can't kill him or do I try to chase dash and hope I have enough ships and firepower left to destroy corran in the end game.
     
    Plus corrran does well in timed matches.

    barabelsftw reacted to Osoroshii in Asteroid placement as Dash.   
    Lets begin with this:

     
    The lesson we get here is Dash is a Clown Fish and the Astroids are his Anemone. you will want to get a tight cluster of rocks so that Dash can use these to protect himself. At the beginning of the match each player places 3 astroids each. We can bend this placement to our advantage by placing 4 astroids and letting our opponent placing 2. Nope this is not cheating and I'll show you how to do it. 
     
    You will always want to give away initiative to your opponent so he places the astroid. what we are looking to create is a dimond shape out of a set of rocks. your opponent will decide where to start the dimond and you can finish this shape with the 3 astroids you place. Here is the first placement from your opponent:
     

     
    From here we begin our work by placing our diamond. Since our opponent placed his first in the corner we will be working our diamond shape out and towards the middle. Our first rock will get placed like this keeping it as close to range 1 as possible:
     

     
    Be sure to place the astroid so that you can narrow the entrance to our Anemone as small as possible. After our opponent places his rock you will continue to create your diamond:
     

     
    It's only now the shape is starting to take place and your opponent might not even know what is happening. he keeps placing the rocks are far apart as he can and you just keep clustering them up. Place our last rock and the construction of the "Blood Diamond" is complete:
     

     
    Now during the ship placement you will want to place Dash in such a place where he can get to his Anemone as fast as you can and live there for the rest of the game. This will make it harder for your opponent to chase or follow Dash around his home and help protect his blind spot. After all Dash is just a Clown fish hiding in his Anemone.

    barabelsftw reacted to Osoroshii in Can the TO play in a Store Championship?   
    I am a TO of Underhill's Games in Cuyahoga Falls OH. I would encourage you not to play in your own Store Championship as the TO. I often will participate in the regularly scheduled events at Underhill's but will not for the SC. The reason being is there is prize support included in the kit to reward the TO of the event already. You will recieve a set of Focus tokens and the Dice Bag, winning a second set would deprive another player from recieveing the goods. It will come off as greedy and could drive people away from participating in future events. The desicion is your of course as the rules do allow it.

    In the current meta of arc dodging phantoms and super dashes my advise is if you're planning on going after a ship and there's any possibility that they'll dodge your arc, I recommend target locks because if you don't get a shot you'll at least have it next time you do have a shot.

    The Kits do cost $60 same as last year. The group I host has an average attendence of 8-10 people. I'm charging $10 for the event to garentee that the kit is paid for. All the extra will go towards door prizes.
