    Upsilon - Why?

    I appreciate the wordplay in the thread title.

    Will they re-release all the ships for 2.0?

    I believe I recall FFG saying that those ships with the aces paintjobs would not necessarily be re-released.

    TSA and Laser Levels

    I have brought a small laser pen for X-Wing on flights a few times now and have not yet had a problem. I worry about it a little each time, though. I do store it in its protective packaging, but I don't know if that makes a difference.

    Snap A's with Heff and Braylen or Jess

    You bet! And thank you! That squad with three Greens does look nice, but I'm still in possession of only two A-Wings for now. I have been looking for an excuse to get a third, though. Fitting Jan Ors on the U-Wing is a nice touch as well. She's definitely a crew member I'll keep in mind as I continue to tweak the list.

    Snap A's with Heff and Braylen or Jess

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I do not have the EPT droid, but I do like the idea of Swarm Leader Pava. I really ought to pick up a Rebel Transport one of these days... I was also wondering whether Chopper would be a better fit on Heff, for taking actions after a stop maneuver. Do you think I might get more benefit out of that than out of Zeb? I had considered Enhanced Scopes as well, but eventually arrived at the same reasoning as Arthur_McGuire here. The uniform PS of such a squad appeals to me, and I figure it would be nice for Heff to have the opportunity for modified attacks even when stressed.
  6. I haven't played much at all lately, but the Snap Shot thread inspired me to consider snappy Greens for open play, and I'd appreciate hearing feedback on two squads I've laid out here. I really liked a Braylen Stramm squad idea in the thread and considered replacing Tarn with a U-Wing (because I'm curious about flying one): 2x Green Squadron Pilot (A-Wing, Refit, Title, Snap Shot, Juke) - 42 Heff Tobber (U-Wing, Fire-Control System, Zeb, Pivot Wing) - 27 Braylen Stramm (ARC-170, Weapons Engineer, M9-G8, Alliance Overhaul) - 31 Total: 100 Double droid shenanigans with Braylen and the Engineer seems like novel fun. However, I also really like Jess Pava in general and wonder if she might survive a little longer than Braylen. This would also make room for Operations Specialist on the U: 2x Green Squad - 42 Heff Tobber (U-Wing, FCS, Zeb, Ops Spec, Pivot Wing) - 30 Jess Pava (T-70, M9-G8, Integrated Astromech) - 28 Total: 100 I like to think Ops Spec would be useful for missed Snap Shots, and missed shots in general, but Jess also seems a little bare without a tech upgrade. What say you? Any thoughts on these squads at first blush? Or perhaps other suggestions altogether?

    Let's make Cassian Andor great again!...

    In another thread around here, someone mentioned a VI Cassian with FCS, Hot Shot Copilot, and Gunner for stripping tokens. I'm not sure how effective it would be, and it's a lot of points, but it also sounds like it'd be fun to take out for a spin.

    ARC-170 help

    That is awesome. I've only put the droid on Jess in a few games so far, but I need to give this a try as well.

    ARC-170 help

    That sounds like quite a lot of fun. I hadn't even considered pairing M9-G8 with Weapons Engineer yet.

    Will 3 factions become 5 at some point?

    No, because 2 have already become 1.

    Uninspired designs

    What is this supposed to mean or contribute? And why are the chimp's nipples smoldering?

    Uninspired designs

    With all that combined wingspan I doubt that those three ships are literally going alongside each other. gotchya covered! It's almost like the two ARCs are high-fiving. "RADICAL!"

    What's your primary faction?

    I was mostly a Rebel pilot until the release of Most Wanted. Since then, I've stuck with Scum for their tricks and japes and larks of all sorts. However, now that I'm playing a bit more again, I would like to start giving the other two factions a bit more of my time as well.

    Your top 5 pilots?

    ... RedLOM, BlueLOM?
  15. Myth Child

    Are T-70s viable?

    Okay, that does make sense. I guess I forgot the order of operations re: BB-8. Still, I wonder which I would prefer. If you do push off a white maneuver or T-Roll, then you do become predictable. My inclination is probably to stick with Predator to at least always have some attack mods, even in emergencies. But those three actions do sound enticing. I suppose I'll have to give 'em both a try and see what I think.
