    Hylian100 reacted to Vorpal Sword in Making the most of the YV-666   
    HLC + Calculation + Recon Specialist is 11 points to get 4 dice with a (nearly) guaranteed crit. HLC + Marksmanship saves you a point for almost the same effect. Mangler Cannon sacrifices an attack die, but it works without other upgrades, and it's just 4 points.
    In particular, compare Mangler + K4 Security Droid against your HLC + Calculation + Recon Specialist. The Mangler build. Functionally, the Mangler will often be attacking with TL+focus, with a guaranteed crit result. HLC will be attacking with just focus, and will crit a little less often (you have a 15% chance of rolling no focus or crit results). So the Mangler combo will do about 10% less damage on average, but it saves you 4 points over the HLC combo. With those you can afford an EPT, or another crew.
    (Importantly, the Mangler + K4 combo works even if you're stressed or bump.)
    Also, keep in mind that Bossk likes to have a cannon, but he doesn't necessarily need one to be successful. Bossk + Calculation + Greedo + Outlaw Tech, for instance, is a relatively cheap build that still demands some early attention from your opponent.

    Just to pile on, the right terminology is those abilities (and, by default, most things in X-wing) activate once per opportunity. In this case, the opportunity is "when attacking or defending"--so you can activate Fett's ability once for each attack roll he makes, and once for each defense roll.

    According to the faq, PtL can interrupt card effects. Such as a stress token being assigned. The example the faq uses is expert handling, which assigns a stress.

    That's true, but in this case doesn't matter, since you are using PtL to do a Focus action.
    There was a very long discussion about this about a year or so ago. The short version is this...
    When you use PtL the stress you receive happens after you perform a free action. However the after can also be a trigger for other things. Things like Jakes ability to perform a barrel roll or boost after you perform a focus action. Since both the stress and Jakes ability trigger off the same event, you get to chose the order in which they resolve.
    You can actually get 2-3 free actions and 2-3 stress if you use things like Exp Interface or Dauntless to trigger free actions as well.

    I for one welcome this variety in coloured base meta. The clear bases were seeing far too much use in tournament play and really affecting base diversity. This is the shake-up the meta needed, no more identically-based TIE swarms!

    The number of dice you roll doesn't necessarily represent the number of guns on the ship, but the power of those guns when attacking.  Among small ships, three attack dice is on the higher end of things.

    Hylian100 reacted to Firespray-32 in R-22 spearheads or A wings?   
    R-22s were a retcon to start with. Rebels is also set to give the B-wing prototype a new origin.
     
    If anything, I think making the A-wing a KSE starfighter is genius.
     
    EDIT: A bit more digging revealed how the interceptor level A-wings make sense: the new canon has the A-wing as highly modifiable starfighter, much like the Z-95. The Rebel Alliance strips them down, removing most of their armor, which is what makes them so blindingly fast.
     
    Funnily enough, with the same goal of saving weight, they often remove the missile launchers.

    See, that's how you tackle the TLT discussion in a reasonable way:
    - Does he think TLT is overpowered? No.
    - Does he admit he's been wrong before? Yes.
    - Are they willing to tackle the situation if TLTs prove to be too good? Yes.
    - Does he mention player skill on either side of the argument anywhere? No.
     
    Very mature and objective stance if you ask me.

    It's likely blank, meaning that the pilot ability hadn't been decided/confirmed when this image was created, or someone messed up and forgot to add it.
    I'm not 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure that these promo images are renders rather than photos. Whoever made this one must have simply grabbed an incomplete texture file.

    Hylian100 got a reaction from Joe Boss Red Seven in YOUR Ship IN STAR WARS... for real.   
    Restricting myself to in-game ships, its a toss-up between the K-Wing and the YV-666. YV-666 has plenty of living space, room for a modified small fighter to fit inside somewhere, and can put up a pretty good fight. Plus, with its general large-brown-box-with-wings charming ugliness, few people will want to steal my ride.
     
    Whereas the K-Wing is crazy fun, and is exactly what I'd do to a ship - just keep adding things, then when it looks like enough, add more things. When that seems like too much, add more. Then strap more engines on it and give it SLAM. 
     
    Maybe I could dock the K-Wing to the YV-666...

    To weigh in on the canon debate: 
     
    From what i understand, according to Lucasfilm's statement, the old EU is no longer canon. However, it's not forbidden for creators to draw from it in creating new stories, or updating old ones. Legends material is not "canon until stated otherwise", it's "non-canon until it's potentially brought into canon." Every new book, comic, TV series, film etc released after that point is canon. And is at the same level of canon as all other material, it can't be written out of existence.
     
    The old canon material had the state of "Canon until it's contradicted," and new sources overwrote older ones.
