    2 articles in 5 days.

    They basically whiped away my fear that the SSD was our Reign and Reverie with the last article. This one is just lagniappe.

    AT-ST made playable?

    And I had a game where my friend tried this on my AT RT's and nothing happened for two turns in a row You folks got really (un?)lucky.

    AT-ST made playable?

    I dunno about the aim pilot, since it already lives in faction with veers/imp officer, but adding offensive surges seems pretty hard to pass up. Equipping the nade launcher & main gun means it throws a squad's worth of dice and ignores cover. I think that'll at least make it worth shooting at. As such, I would not bring too many repair droids, since that just tells the opponent to shoot your stormtrooper squads like they wanted to do in the first place.

    B-wing lists? X-wing 2.0

    2 blues with HLC and FCS, a blue with leia and FCS, and a blue with R3 astromech. 4 points for whatever. Blue Squadron ftw.

    January changes - prepare to be disappointed

    Didn't FFG just change a tournament format for L5R because the community didn't like it? I mean I doubt they're reading this thread, but clearly they listen.

    Exhaustable Weapons

    Right now all the exhaustible weapons are for anti-vehicle use. Let's wait for some good vehicles before we judge them too harshly. When someone actually brings an at-rt or three, I always end up appreciating the one ion gun I find room for. If I can catch an At-ST pointed the wrong way, then it works on them as well.

    Fleet vs. Troops vs. Commandos

    Sounds like fleets to me. I think this is a little late, maybe, but that's the horse I'd bet on. Firepower is king, and that low profile ain't gonna stop a flamer anyhow.

    Rebels Lurking...

    If they drop any of the rebel crap I like by a few points, Poe and Co. will stay in my tacklebox. If not... man I wanna run some T70's. I keep wanting a 3 green straight when I go to set an X wing's dial, and it's not there. Hopefully they're not too much more per ship.

    Rebels need a swarm ship (like Howl, Jonus, Drea, Serrisu, etc.)

    Naked Saw with 4 Y's with proton bombs. EDIT: Make 2 seismics and put sabine on the U.

    The B-wing has a 3 straight green now, which means you can gain something from going 4 on turn 1 and 3 on turn 2. Add afterburners to be on your opponent faster than a mynock on a power cable.

    Does Rigged Cargo Trigger if dropped on an enemy?

    "Overlap" - Page 14 of the Rules Reference [emphasis mine]: "While a ship executes a maneuver or otherwise moves, it overlaps an object if the ship’s final position would physically be on top of an object" Overlapping is only a thing that happens as a result of a ship moving. Dropping/Launching the obstacle under the ship is not "overlapping" in game terms. Debris fields don't do anything unless you move through or overlap them. The Hivemind is correct in this instance.

    2.0 - Fantastic Fours

    Garven Dreis (X-Wing) (47) Trick Shot (1) R3 Astromech (3) Servomotor S-Foils (0) "Dutch" Vander (42) Trick Shot (1) Ion Cannon Turret (6) R4 Astromech (2) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) Horton Salm (38) Trick Shot (1) Ion Cannon Turret (6) R4 Astromech (2) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) Lieutenant Blount (30) Trick Shot (1) Ion Missiles (4) Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder So it's got more than a little control, provided I actually guess where that pesky ace is going with one of the three. Then the Y-wings can go all warthog on them once I get it to sit still. Garven and dutch support the other two. Blount usually just blocks, but he can switch to fighting or Ion-ing in a pinch.

    Afterburnes is this where the lie comes undone?

    Proxy in casual. Borrow from friends for a tournament. You play this game with friends, right?
  14. Borrow it from your friends. Cards are still not at all required for casual play, and unless you live in some sort of strange hive-mind, your friends won't all be taking the exact same list to a tournament.

    Strike 3

    Boris, do you not have friends? I once brought a list that needed four copies of wired to a tournament, back when it only came in the TFA core. I just borrowed three from my buddies I regularly played with. It's not a hard concept.
