  1. In fairness, some of the Imperial flying in those streams... left something to be desired.
  2. A very diplomatic way of saying, "don't play like garbage." ?
  3. They mentioned it offhand during the unboxing stream.

    We do know it will be converted to the new Medium base size. With how missiles and torpedoes work now (with multi-use charges and not having to spend TLs to fire), I am very excited! Costed appropriately, I think it could be a beast!
  5. Imgur Album! Inspired by Rogue One and the stark contrast of white against the blackness of space, I recolored one of my slate-grey ISDs into stark, Imperial white!
  6. On Saturday, April 7 2018, Back to Dials is going to be streaming live from the X-Wing Campaign Against Cancer in Denver, CO! The CAC is an annual charity X-Wing event that this year benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Last year, the nationwide event raised over $21,000 and this year we plan to hit a goal of $25,000 across 25 locations! Learn more at www.x-wing.org. Tune in to the Back to Dials stream on Saturday to watch all six rounds LIVE, and get your chance to win some awesome prizes! Donate to the Campaign Against Cancer during the stream and be entered into raffles, trivia contests and more to win anything from CAC merch, to alternate art cards, to limited-edition Star Wars art prints. Every year, this event gets more and more fun and every dime goes to fighting a disease that touches almost everyone in the community. Join us on the 7th to play X-Wing and fight cancer!
  7. Better title would be "Countdown to GUNBOAT DOMINATION!"
  8. https://www.twitch.tv/backtodials Join us in Denver, CO for the stream of the Walker Classic main tournament! We are flying Hangar Bay with the Distinct rule, so we should have one **** of a time!
  9. MANDALORIAN MAYHEM is a Battle Royale format of X-Wing featuring 10-12 players on a 4x6 board. The insatiable Hutt cartel bosses have gotten bored and ordered the finest mercenaries in the galaxy, ace pilots of the Firespray-31, to battle for their amusement in a free-for-all fight to the death! This event will be broadcast live from the Walker Classic on the Back to Dials Twitch Channel. Now is your chance to get your hand in the ring and support one of the 12 pilots competing to win the Hutts' favor! All donations to the event are given to Extra Life Charities in support of the Children's Miracle Network. What does donating get you? Donating $5 to your chosen mercenary buys that pilot 3 points of upgrades to spend on their ship before the event. Donations will be accepted during the livestream! Donations during the livestream will get the pilot a draw from the special Upgrade deck! Additionally, players will have the option to donate to place "Bounties" on other players at any time, adding to the chaos and the fun. These "Hutt Backers" who donate to the winning pilot will receive special exclusive acrylic Mandalorian tokens as appreciation from the Hutt bosses for encouraging chaos. With wormholes, special upgrades, changing bounties and pay-to-win excitement, MANDALORIAN MAYHEM is the event to watch! Tune in this Saturday, Nov. 18 at 6:30PM MST. Choose your Pilot and Donate to help them win!

  11. I like this on TIE Shuttles with an extra crew slot available - say, a Fleet Officer shuttle with one extra slot. There's really no reason NOT to take him, as he can provide an effect which might be useful in some games, esp. with an aces+shuttle list vs. generics - PS8 deployment can get your entire list above the opponent's, giving that bomber shuttle a little edge.
  12. This is what I do! It's incredibly strong.
  13. I dunno, just Guidance Chips can be a pretty good punch with a TL! Get her at 10 with VI or with Crack Shot... Why hasn't she become the 3rd in an Imperial Alpha list? I'll answer my own question, poor girl's just too expensive Or at least she is with EU on Vader. ...which I can't bring myself to leave behind xD
  14. Thanks very much! We are definitely going to do more of those and I share your opinion of the non-Vader Advanceds - they are a ton of fun, especially Junk and the Tempests!
  15. Listen Here! Calm, serene, peaceful, the beaches of Scarif, before the Rebels showed up. Man, they really had no chill.
