  1. I really wonder what was the experience or perceived threat that caused the addition of the current fortressing rule. Especially, as the lengthy rule passage does not and can not pertain to ”totally not fortressing”. In wrestling or mixed martial arts the referee can order the contestants to break or stand up if there is no effort or progress. I really don’t see a way to implement anything similar to X-Wing. Already back in 2013 or 2014 we had threads where a player complained that Y-wings only circled around the board edge and did not turn into center to engage Interceptors, or vice versa. Though then nobody thought whether it would look boring to spectators. Maybe a rule, that forced all ships to move out of the deployment zone within certain time or number of rounds, could be implemented. But it would require additional bookkeeping and most ships could rather easily select another place to ”not fortress”. If I had to referee such a game, I might ask each player to write down how long they intend to continue ”not fortressing”. Then we set the game time to nearer of those values and continue from there. However, such an ad hoc ruling probably is not within the letter or spirit of the rules and would be hard to write into them.
  2. I disagree. It is worth it to note that Tac Officer etc. do not change the color of the action. They are upgrades that have a prerequisite and add a white action. For example, sometimes a Reaper would want to gain stress from a red coordinate, in order to not have to do the aileron move next turn.
  3. Some people in my play group, including myself, use the following brand: https://m.clasohlson.com/uk/Tesa-Anti-Slip-Silencer-Pads/21-2865 There is a picture of them mounted under a base in Medium bases thread.
  4. Thank you. IG-B and -C have wrong costs. They should be 65 and 66, respectively.
  5. I think you can do red coordinates even with Tac Officer onboard. It adds white coordinate to your action bar, it does not treat red coordinates as white.
  6. How important do you think FCS would be for two Juke Onyxes? The remaining 30 points could be used for naked Inferno 2...4 or a Squad Leader Black Ace. Of those the latter is the cheapest imperial coordinate and might be handy on the approach turn.
  7. No, 4-LOM would have liked to pre-emptively jam Rexler’s evade from Full Throttle.
  8. This was the best topic I could find concerning the discussion I had last game night. What happens, when the ship being jammed has one type of token but the jammer chooses another type of token? Reading the rules, an effect was not resolved so the ship remains jammed, but a jammed ship is a ship with a jam token and no green tokens or locks. A specific example of this would be a ship with a lock on a rock getting jammed before it is activated. FWIW, my personal opinions re: green tokens is #1 and re: this question is jam is ineffective, but I understand both interpretations in both cases.
  9. Decloak allows for evade action, cloak does not and even if it did you cannot perform the same action twice in a round.
  10. Though not listed in contents, these are included in the empire kit as a separate insert.
  11. Someone tractored on an asteroid might be able to roll off it, if the template can be placed without overlapping the obstacle. Check Difficulty step of Execute Maneuver has already been done, so the ship is no longer executing maneuver and only suffers the roll for damage, not skip Perform Action.
  12. IG-88x pilots are not set unique.
  13. All Sheathipede pilots have calculate instead of focus, not just AP-5
  14. TIE/sa Bomber has barrel roll linked to barrel roll

    Medium bases

    M10 washers fit nicely into the cavity of a medium base. Sideway view trying to show how little the studs protrude under the base. You can slide maybe a thin envelope under the base.
