    Look, in the distance! It's a vague thing... hazy... I cannot really see it. I bet that whatever it is, it confirms everything I already firmly believe about the world. I'll treat this as certainly true. It makes me so mad.

    Lol, yes there are some ships that ore overcosted, but Rebels are far from useless. Whining about it doesn't make things any better.

    I get what people saying about their phones, 
    Need to implement a 'NO PHONES OUT AT THE TABLE', they stay in pockets or bags. You shouldn't be on your phone anyway,

    Yeah, but unless you're a regular high level tournie attendee...who gives a ****?
    Balancing will need to happen to increase the variety of viable options available, but rebs have a bit to play with at the local level

    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...

    You really need statistics from a tournament to see what distortion there is if any.
    As for I5 and I6 being a crutch I really hate that mentality. It implies wanting to fly such ships makes one less of a player (which isn't true) and ignores the multitude of other reasons a player may want to.

    Rebels are garbage, just total garbage.  At the moment they're boring and bad, and even if they change the points to make them good they'll still be boring.
    Play a different faction, Rebels are just a write-off.

    I’ve been playing X-Wing for about 3 years and I’ve had a lot of fun with this game! I was super excited for the changes in 2.0!
    But now that it’s here I’ve been frustrated with how slowly I’m learning all the new cards and mechanics. I’m struggling to find a Rebel list that I like and I feel like I haven’t even been competitive in most of my 2.0 games so far.
    I’m pretty sure that I just need to get more games in and find a list that works. Flying the Falcon was one of my favorite things in X-Wing and I’m sad at how awful Han is. I’ve given up on the Falcon but still have trouble being competitive with X-Wings and Y-Wings as well...
    My local group has a lot of imperial players and I know that Rebels aren’t in the best place at the moment relative to the big hitters the Empire has available.
    This post is just to vent a little. I know I’ll be having fun again soon but I am struggling to enjoy the game at this point.
    My flying has been bad, my rolls have been terrible, I don’t know what my opponents lists do, and I can’t seem to build a list that works for me!
    It’s hard to be a noob with a game I’ve been playing for 3 years!
     
    I’ll dry my tears and pick my first world problems up off the floor now...
    Thanks for being cool X-Wing. Now I just need to find out how to be cool 2.0...

    Oh, don't argue, guys. It was a good question, of a kind I wish we'd see more of, and a good answer, just maybe not exactly the right answer yet. I'd like to see an interesting discussion continue amicably.

    I had a game Whisper + 5 AP ties vs 7 ship Drea swarm. 5 APs set up middle and left, Drea swarm starts mostly on the right side, Whisper gets plopped down far left corner. Rocks are kinda in the middle. 
    Start of game, Imperial player pushes the ties 5 forward and 3 slight to Drea's left to consolidate its force on one flank. Whisper stays safely but in firing range behind the APs. Result: The ties are now gumming up the board at Init1, and are really close (getting multiplicative R1 extra dice), and shooting or getting to bump or tractor Whisper involves running through this giant screening field.  
    Now, its pretty valid to talk about how to better set up vs this, though frankly, I was thinking as Drea to avoid trying to head-on tackle the Ties. However....
    How do you ensure that you're going to be able to start focusing on killing Whisper in a timely enough manner that you won't be suffering also non-sustainable damage from the Ties or standard return fire in the meantime? 
    Assume that the Imperial player is generally considered the better player (than you), but still capable of losing and or making mistakes. 
    (I have no interest in reiterating how to kill players worse than I, I want to learn to beat players who are far stronger.) 
     
    More context: 
    It wasn't. It was in a large concave... which actually kind of made things worse, Whisper and the ties picked off a side and then Drea. 
     
    I don't think you understand the question, I'm not asking for some magic trick. I'm literally asking for the theory on how to defeat this certain aspect of play that makes me a worse player than I am. (For you also: the caveat I added about better players is to avoid people also giving out simple stupid answers that work against brain-dead opponents) 
     
    This is a strategy question, and as such, its long, and doesn't expect an easy answer. But asks to see if there be those willing to educate the rest of us on advanced tactics. It also assumes that for the rest of our play, we're playing at a high level.

    I can't wait for people who have spent 5 years whining about how bad their dice are to start trying to use Heroic competitively, so that we can start listening to them whine about how not bad enough their dice are.
