    Your opponents are also super bad. A good opponent will make you either spend those actions to be out of arcs period (but you likely won't have a shot), or you'll be stuck facing a shot, but you can mod something. Getting that dream that I've bolded above isn't as common as you're making it out to be.

    What Are You Taking to Store Champs?

    Thank you! It's as much broken BS as I can fit in a single Imperial squad, and it's so much fun to fly. My first SC of the season is this weekend, so we'll see how it goes.

    What Are You Taking to Store Champs?

    I've never flown BSF's, but I always have very intriguing games against them. Because of this, and the fact that they look amazing on the table, I love any list that uses them.

    100 pt. Whisper Whisper with Krennic, VI, AS, ACD Vermeil with Palp, Adaptability, title, LWF Scimitar bomber with TIE shuttle, Kylo crew, Courier Droid It's the most broken squad I've ever flown, and I'm obsessed with it in an unhealthy way.

    Nothing About The Conversion Kits Upsets Me

    Long Live 1.0 (wave 14). The real X-Wing ?

    So I guess the alt art 1.0 pilots and upgrades arent worth much now eh?

    It boggles my mind that people still pay any money for 1.0 alt arts. But then again, my wife doesn't understand why I buy plastic toy space ships...

    100 pt. Whisper

    After about 3 years of playing in an anti-Whisper meta, TIE Phantom enthusiasts across the globe are enjoying a Renaissance. While most X wing players are yearning for 2.0 to be released, we are enjoying the glory days of the end of 1.0. This is a last hurrah for those of us that like to throw 4 (or 5) double modified red dice, followed by 4 double modified green dice. Until the release of Krennic, phantom players had either decided to put Whisper and Echo on the shelf, or punish themselves with playing hard counters in nearly every game. But now that Krennic is here, Whisper got that little (big) buff that she needed, and those enthusiasts that punished themselves for years are being rewarded for it. I am one of those unabashed TIE Phantom enthusiasts who mostly never gave up the dream, and this is the squad that I have settled into post wave 14: 100 pt. Whisper Major Vermeil — TIE Reaper 26 Adaptability 0 Emperor Palpatine 8 Lightweight Frame 2 Advanced Ailerons 0 Ship Total: 36 "Whisper" — TIE Phantom 32 Veteran Instincts 1 Advanced Sensors 3 Director Krennic 5 Advanced Cloaking Device 4 Ship Total: 45 Scimitar Squadron Pilot — TIE Bomber 16 Kylo Ren 3 Courier Droid 0 TIE Shuttle 0 Ship Total: 19 I finally have a Palp carrier that can contribute consistent offense, run away when necessary, and strip opponents actions. Whisper is immune to being blocked without actions or shots, and Kylo crew gives me a tool against higher PS. Most people experience a specific meta/squad that is the perfect fit for them, and this is certainly it for me. Long live wave 14!

    I've also already mentioned two ways that I deal with hard counters: 1. teching against them (Kylo crew, palpatine, advanced sensors) 2. game plan. I do very focused training against the hard-counters. I put it on the table at home, and move through all possibilities, worst case scenarios, deployments, obstacle placement, win conditions. This isn't something that many players do, but it's how you win those games.

    100 pt. Whisper

    I handled a PS10 Nym/Assaj quite well last night, beating it twice against a world class player. Oh, and he had proton bombs... Its pretty easy to discredit something by pointing out a super hard counter, but the game does need to be played. Those tough matchups are very winnable with a solid game plan.

    PSA: no public MathWing / ship evaluation for X-wing 2.0

    That's precisely the kind of hype men that this thread deserves.

    PSA: no public MathWing / ship evaluation for X-wing 2.0

    This has been a solid read during a slow day at summer school. Thank you everyone! A special thanks goes out to all the hype men keeping this thing going. Not all heros wear capes... I'm looking at you @Wiredin

    no, definitely hot shot blaster
  14. Most Difficult: Lone wolf,SJ Echo; Sigma; Palp shuttle Easiest: Decoy Echo; VI Chiraneau I flew a lot of Echo... Edit: I forgot all about Ketsu Bossk. That was much much easier...

    DTF Quickdraw x3 is fun in that format!

    AMA with Frank and Max - all questions and answers

    I'll believe it when I see an article announcing it. That seems like a really easy thing for management to say no to.

    AMA with Frank and Max - all questions and answers

    I'm not sure this was ever suggested? What they said was that you don't have to buy (insert only 1 ship here) in order to get a specific upgrade (like the autothrusters expansion). All factions will have an expansion pack that comes with a particular upgrade card, allowing someone to only buy a single faction, and stay competitive. They're still not in the business of selling card packs.

    Ask me after a few games with them.
  20. I would also love some quick build options from the conversion kits. They would be great for draft tournaments!

    Correct. Nathan used perfect range and arc control. Nathan goes undefeated over three days of x wing, and confirms that everyone in California is just bad at X wing?

    This is my first reaction as well. How is Trip Wookies not the answer here?

    Of course, he called it "imperial jank", but was flying Inquisitor, Ryad, and Backdraft. His idea of jank is cute.

    It's actually been super fun at KC the last two weeks. We've all been flying pretty wholesome things. Even Bryson has been flying only arced ships! I'm flying nothing but TIE Phantoms, and loving life. But no, I haven't seen that thread yet...
