  1. Why is this thread 10 pages long. They're just going to errata it with "scum only" once the TIE Aggressor is released.
  2. I'm not sure where the love is coming from, since he is one of the worst pilots in the game. Obviously his echo-like ability would be neat if it didn't come with a stress penalty... and if he had an Elite slot... and if he wasn't severely overpriced... and if I had a pony...
  3. I like that gyro stabilization title. The other thing I would like to see is a title/sensor/mod/crew that really beefs up the power of the secondary weapons of the B-Wing. Give it some major teeth: "Once per round, after you perform an attack with a Torpedo secondary weapon, you may perform a primary weapon attack or a Cannon secondary weapon attack."
  4. If you're using Luke or Gunner, then Predator is a clearly better choice. If you're not... then I still think the math works out in favor of Predator on Han, irregardless of the price difference. IMO, Expertise clearly makes more sense on Rey (until FFG nerfs Kanan anyhow).
  5. Biggs. Dies so that his wingmates can go on to do something cool. Agent Kallus, doggedly hunting down his prey.
  6. I didn't see anything like that, maybe he just saw a Strike at an odd angle. Did the dark troopers unload from a TIE striker variant, or from Krennic's shuttle?
  7. I thought it was spectacular. The first half had some rough edges, the music and the spastic pacing in particular, but the final stretch was exhilarating. I appreciate that they're mixing up the tone and trying out different stories - it gives me hope for the Han Solo movie.
  8. Buzzsaw Whisper with Expertise would have unbelievable shooting, and a token stack to boot. I think the trick to making it work is to pair her with Decoy Vader, to giver her PS9 recloaking: "Whisper" (32) Expertise (4) Fire-Control System (2) Gunner (5) Advanced Cloaking Device (4) Darth Vader (29) Decoy (2) Advanced Targeting Computer (1) TIE/x1 (0) "Omega Leader" (21) A Score to Settle (0) Total: 100 View in Yet Another Squad Builder
  9. Use Extra Munitions instead of the extra Proton Torpedo. Use the extra points to upgrade Thane Kyrell's astromech to R7-T1.
  10. I log all my plays, so I have the data. I logged my first play of X-Wing on the second week of February in 2015. In the 94 weeks since then I have played 270 times in total, for an average of 2.87 times a week.
  11. Sneak Attack's Games is the only game store I know about in St Cloud, but I think it's focused on card games. You could probably ask around at that store to see if anyone would be interested in playing X-Wing. Alternatively, you could make the excursion down to FFG's game center in St Paul. I think you had mentioned in anther thread that it was a 3 hour drive - that's a long haul, but If you have any shopping or stuff like that to do in the Twin Cities, then I'd recommend making a day trip out of it (I live in southern MN, so that's what I do).
  12. If you want to throw tons of dice: Biggs Darklighter (25) R2-D6 (1) Swarm Leader (3) Integrated Astromech (0) Lothal Rebel (35) Collision Detector (0) Hera Syndulla (1) Lothal Rebel (35) Collision Detector (0) Total: 100 But probably a better source for the second evade token is an A-Wing. Biggs Darklighter (25) R2-D6 (1) Swarm Leader (3) Integrated Astromech (0) Kanan Jarrus (38) Fire-Control System (2) Autoblaster Turret (2) Recon Specialist (3) Jan Ors (2) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Snap Shot (2) Chardaan Refit (-2) Push the Limit (3) Autothrusters (2) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Total: 100 View in Yet Another Squad Builder
  13. Especially if your opponent has the mistaken impression that all obstacles cause you to skip your action step (only Asteroids do that).
