  1. Harpoon Change: Store uses this rule

    So no one can actually have them. That’s a pretty good fix.
  2. Harpoon Change: Store uses this rule

    What is the stores fix for TLT then?
  3. I want a harpoons thread too!

    Reads Miranda, reads R2 D2. Completely understands the decision to apply additional Hull damage. Yeah the splash damage is maybe a bit much but it’s kind of a double edged sword. It can hurt your squad as well. Harpoons are pretty much designed for competitive play, which can make them pretty unfun to play against in a casual setting. But why complain about Harpoons (so much) and continue to be all tralala about TLT and PWT.
  4. Regional Results thread.

    It was close, an action choice different and it could have gone the other way. But yeah, Ghost/Fenn has dice variance going their way because they have so many mods/mitigation and in general the list puts the entire burden of execution on the opponent. It’s a pretty good game though if you have the chance to go back and watch it.
  5. Age of Turret Wing....what's a poor fighter pilot to do?

    It’s actually worse that that when you think about. Forget about the white sloop for a second. Dengar and Rey are turrets. They always get to shoot at stuff in range. But if they are in arc, they get super abilities. Let that sink in. What arc ship gets a super ability when they have stuff in arc? So not only are the turrets that can shoot where they like, they get in arc abilities that most arc ships can only dream of. And they get white sloops.
  6. What if TLT wasn’t in the game?

    If TLT wasn’t in the game I would rejoice. It might not make the game better but it has easily been the least fun thing to play against since it was released.
  7. Dear FFG: the Ghost and Miranda

    TLT You cannot equip bomb, Missile or torpedo upgrade cards. You cannot use your primary weapon while this upgrade is equiped. I could go on (like small ship only) but these changes stop some of the worst offenders while still keeping the card pretty decent on the small carriers like Y-Wing. 1. Miranda and Nym in particular benefit from getting way too many upgrade options. This takes those away, or they choose a different turret. 2. Miranda can have a 5 Dice Missile but not a TLT too. Miranda can have a great weapon for her regen but loses her stupidly good bubble defence. (Bomblet and range 1 Turret). 3. TLT costs 6, HLC Outrider costs 12 and does about the same amount of damage. If TLT is going to be a range 2-3 Turret it’s needs a true bubble so people can actually fly and play the range game against them. I dont know how you fix the Ghost. This at least means you don’t get primaries. Allowing the Ghost to get the double shot end of turn was a terrible idea, but so was making Fenn about 5-6 points undercosted (+4pts for Pilot Skill, +1-2pts for anti action ability).
  8. Is Rau a better Fel than Fel?

    Dengaroo also existed before LWF came out. There was no way Quickdraw was surviving that with no Evade and only 2 green dice.
  9. Advanced Sensors or FCS for Silencer? Neither.

    Trajectory Simulator is a great system upgrade.
  10. Ynot Squad Benchmark

    Lol. I always play lists against myself. It’s actually annoying if I want a take back that it reverts to computer rather than staying on player. Its an awesome tool, both for learning your list and learning what other people will fly too.
  11. Why would it fix the PS war? Quickdraw is at 11. Also it’s like the one thing Imperials have Vader and Quickdraw can go there and give up nothing. Rebel Fenn Rau is probably the only other pilot that can do that because his entire place in a list revolves around being last to move
  12. I would say that Nymranda, and specifically Experimental Interface Bombing Miranda is going to be one of the toughest things for this kind of list. You take Quickdraw because she can take the first run and deal out some punishment at the same time, but you still need to fly it well. We had already seen AC murder similar lists on stream. So that final game could go either way. Palp Aces though, like 2 years ago, is good against ordinance based meta. Though Quickdraw is only an ace in PS, not so much in repositional ability and neither ship really has the ability to just shrug off attacks like Soontir did. Watching the semi between Nam-my and Joel I wanted Nam-my to win because I thought he had a much better chance against Nymranda. I’m glad Joel was able to prove what a great player he is by dismantling one of his tougher matchups (twice).
  13. Countering "Quick Poon"?

    I just can’t agree with this. Jousting lists are lists that can take you head on and take little damage in return. Old Commonwealth Defenders was definitely the best jousting list during its short life along with Dengaroo which didn’t actually have to joust but just did it anyway. Rebels currently have the best tools for survinging jousts by mitigating damage while still dealing out a lot of their own. Just because Quickdraw shoots you when she loses shields and therefore increases her damage output on that round doesn’t make her a jouster. She is fragile and wants no part of a head to head fight. Neither do Gunboats. Both of them want to come at you from multiple angles to mitigate the amount of guns pointing back at them. Sometimes the joust favours you, and when it does you need to recognise that in setup, Imperials are good at flanking IMO.
  14. I don’t get this opinion at all. People want to nerf reinforce so a small number of ships can deal with it. I don’t really see how it helps. Also Wes Jansen might be in an X-Wing but his ability is kind of broken. He already completely nerfs ordinance on one ship in his arc and you want him to crush Wookies too. Jansen kills gunboats, Gunboats kill Wookies Wookies kill Jansen. Also I’m pretty sure the problem with Wookies is the 180 firing arc. If the had a normal arc with reinforce front or back 180 they probably wouldn’t be a problem.
  15. Ciena Ree

    @flybomb I’m going to admit I’m super grumpy because I just had to back out of the Rey is a Mary Sue thread. People just need to stop. Ciena Ree is *not* a Mary Sue. She is the main protoagonist of a novel, just like Rey is one of the main protagonists of the new trilogy. If these were male characters we would never criticise them in the same way. Mary Sue has become a term used to lessen the value of a female characters contribution and role in a story. The term is more harmful than it is helpful in terms of describing the actions and power of female characters. You will note that Ciena Ree isn’t really a natural, she has to work and strive to be better than everyone around her to be recognised - this is a life story for women around the world. Female characters should be given all the same privileges of story and agency that male characters have without the immediate response being that they are a Mary Sue.
