  1. Lol, yes there are some ships that ore overcosted, but Rebels are far from useless. Whining about it doesn't make things any better.
  2. You already have been. Rebels isn't ascendant right now, but they are by no means unplayable or non-competitive. Don't overdo the panicking...
  3. Low pilot skill pilots be like;
  4. No. I'd rather have Ewoks in the game ?
  5. If they've got experience playing Armada, I'd not be too concerned they won't pick X Wing up pretty fast. Perhaps take lists that don't do a lot of viffing about with boost and barrel rolls, just to simplify things a tad.
  6. Sounds like you need to make an example of your dice, more than there's a problem with the game.
  7. It's gotta be a good indication the game designers have got it reasonably right when there's whining from each faction that they are underpowered and hard done by
  8. Well, some people find losing a NPE. Or having to think outside the box. Or even having to change their tactics/list to suit.
  9. Hey all. The tournament was on Saturday, and I did reasonably well, 3 wins 3 losses. I ended up modifying the list and ran with; Wedge Antilles — X-Wing 52 Servomotor S-foils 0 Ship Total: 52 Thane Kyrell — X-Wing 48 Servomotor S-foils 0 Ship Total: 48 “Dutch” Vander — Y-Wing 42 Trick Shot 1 Proton Torpedoes 9 R4 Astromech 2 Ship Total: 54 Gold Squadron Veteran — Y-Wing 34 Trick Shot 1 Proton Torpedoes 9 R4 Astromech 2 Ship Total: 46 Some reflections; Trick shot is situational, but GLORIOUS when it comes off. 5 dice Proton torps? Yes please! 1st round I had a 4 dice primary weapon shot! PS4 on Dutch isn't enough to reliably push forward and pass locks for torpedoes. Lots of high PS ships in the tourney, and he got wiped before firing one game. When it does work I usually have the Gold with a focus and target lock, pretty effective Wedge hits hard, but is fragile. Thane's ability is nice, but too situational. He'd be a terror to any larger ships, but I didn't face anything bigger than a U Wing. Still, I never found myself feeling totally outmatched list wise, so I'd rate this as 2nd tier. A better player than me would probably get more out of it
  10. Save those jokes until she IS your wife. It's harder for her to change her mind that way
  11. I thought your first post was being sarcastic... then this.
  12. Yeah, not seeing it. Played a 6 game tournament on the weekend, faced him 3 times (it had a just Wave 1 rule, good fun!) and used him myself. I used the ability once, and it was used on me once. It's not like I wasn't trying to get him shots on damaged ships either. Not a deal breaker at all.
  13. Yeah, pretty much. However around here I find it seems mildly heretical to NOT panic and complain that one faction is hard done by compared to the others.
  14. It's an example. If someone is going to say a whole faction is overcosted, don't be surprised when people give examples to suggest that it's too early to panic just yet. Again.
  15. I can fly a 4 X Wing squadron with 3 named pilots, and room for some upgrades/droids. That doesn't sound overcosted to me
  16. Thanks for the replies Sounds fair, but the Luke/Boba are $22/$20 while the other two are $12 each, so I could get two of each with the funds I've got. Not in Australia They retail at $50 here, so real happy to be able to get them at half price. I hear you, but I've no interest in going further, just want to have a stand alone game ready to roll for the kids. I've never been into the CCG's , but I've had a few games of Destiny with mates and it's good fun, so I figure the kids will enjoy it too So two two player starters is good, allowing 'elite' characters, right? Should I do the same with the Rey/Kylo starters? Thanks again Just found this GIF, I didn't think Fury Road could be better. I was wrong!
  17. Hi all, I am looking at getting Destiny to add another game to the collection in the games club I run at my school. We will NOT be buying booster sets, and it will be a 'bought and stop' sort of thing. I'm thinking of getting 2 copies of the two player box, and perhaps a Rey starter and a Kylo starter. Local shop has a sale with the 2 player at $25 and the others at $12. What do you suggest?
  18. Any reason Trick Shot wouldn't work on the ICT of a Y Wing? Could be good I'm thinking this right now; Wedge Antilles (52) Crack Shot (1) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Thane Kyrell (48) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Biggs Darklighter (48) Servomotor S-Foils (0) "Dutch" Vander (42) Trick Shot (1) Ion Cannon Turret (6) R4 Astromech (2) Total: 200
  19. Thanks all, that's certainly given me some options to try out. I want to make the Y Wings work, but I'm not convinced by ICT at this point either. Biggs has always been a favourite of mine, I even have an X-Wing that I painted a flaming magnet on the nose, just for him
  20. Hi all, there's a local event coming up that is limited to only the contents of Wave 1, the starter set and Saw's Renegades. I'm leaning towards X-Wings and Y-Wings, but I'm unsure how effective Ion control will be this time around. A tie Swarm might be a nice change of pace. Any ideas for me?
