    Sorry guys, just had to ask, didn't I? Note to self on joining forums in future: check for any longstanding arguments on things that ultimately only really matter for flavour, not mechanics-wise or anything.

    Hylian100 reacted to KCDodger in OT: There's something egregiously wrong with SW Rebels.   
    Are you kidding? You do know what Repulsorlifts are, right? fighters in Star Wars, in atmosphere or close enough to the ground, rely primarily upon their Repulsorlifts for flying around, considering their almost complete lack of aerodynamics and proper control surfaces, it HAS to be this way. But it's not a terrible thing, since the tech can compensate for it fairly well. TIEs can't fly sideways so much as they can hover like a helicopter.

    Which every ship in Star Wars can do.

    And yeah, the fighter can be controlled upside down- why not? If you know where the stick is and how to fuddle around with it then... What's the problem? Remember that this is a franchise where modified air cars lassoed giant metal camels in the middle of an ice planet, some things should be dismissed outright.

    This is not a big deal. Thorough knowledge of the technology in Star Wars will reveal that... Honestly, Rebels has been incredibly respectful to the established lore, if anything.

    Allow me to copy and paste my speculation from the other thread:
     
    As I've said to people before, my money's on the Imperial Escort Carrier from Rogue Squadron 3. Reasons being:
    1.it's a similar size to the CR90
    2. It fills a similar role (though in the Empire's case, more Escort and system patrol than blockade running)
    3. Being a carrier (though a light one) it could well have some interesting mechanics related to that.
    4. There's already at least one named crewmember it would be required to hae (namely Sarkli)
    5. They've certainly gone for ships featured in Star Wars videogames up til now with their Expanded Universe additions.
    6.It looks frakking badass. Just look at it: http://starwars.wiki...storm_commando)
     
    I would very well love an FFG model of that ship, and would certainly endeavour to use it when it's not looking glorious on my shelf.
     
    I know I'm gonna be wrong though, for most of those points the Gozanti's probably more likely, though not as sharklike.
     
    Still haven't had a shot at epic, would very much like to try it though, try to make the CR90 work. I don't see being killed by swarms as a massive drawback of it, since, y'know, EVERYTHING is killed by swarms.

    Aren't the specifically Vistory-2 Frigates though, not Star Destroyers? (Granted, no idea why there would be two different ship classes with Victory-2s, but whatever)

    Gotta say, I do like that the fighter packs are all the fighters of a faction, was worried for a while you'd have to buy separate A-Wings, B-Wings etc, the overall cost might be greater, but price per squadron will surely go down, and it should be the capital ships that really matter for those who wish to expand.
     
    And I may have to get another Victory, the Victory-class Star Destroyer has always been my favourite, ever since booting up X-Wing all those years ago.

    Also, Lackwit, that's not a V-Wing, that's the hull of his B-wing, specidfically the middle section, since it's in its landing configuration in the hangar.

    Also the way it's phrased is "you cannot equip this card if your pilot skill is 1 or lower."
    As long as your pilot skill was greater than 1 at the time Test Pilot was equipped, it stays put.

    No. As long as A-Wing Test pilot can be legally added when building your list the double EPT's are fine. You don't lose something due to Torkhil's ability.

    That isn't how that works. Once something is equipped, it won't become illegal unless they lose the icon.
