  1. I'm not sure I'd be a fan of 6 Academy Pilots and howlrunner all with crackshot.
  2. Can you explain "obsolete" in regard to Munitions Failsafe. Is that card no longer usable? I just did a search on the Forum and didn't find some kind of ruling. Sorry to go off-topic. It's not unusable but it's effectively been negated by extra munitions or guidance chips. There's a lot more options to ensure that ordinance hits now and there are much better options in the modification slot.
  3. http://media.wix.com/ugd/f7465e_df30b1ec82b047dcb9a747a9cf540cdc.pdf You could give this a look.
  4. Tractor beam would still cancel all the dice results even if you modified them with Bossk's ability. Accuracy corrector differs in that you cancel everything for those two hit results but they can still be avoided or in the case of tractor beam canceled. As far a modifcation of dice goes you have the following Add: To add a die result, place an unused die displaying the result next to the rolled dice. A die added in this way is treated as a normal die for all purposes and can be modified and canceled. Change: To change a die result, rotate the die so that its faceup side displays the new result. Reroll: To reroll a die result, pick up the die and roll it again. Dice can be modified by multiple effects, but a die cannot be rerolled more than once. But canceling does not count as modification.
  5. Just curious, what makes you say that? That's why they exist, it doesn't explain what lead Patox to surmise they have interest in the FO/Resistance. I would personally love it if they did, was just curious what lead him to think that. I'm not sure they'd do it before Rebels ended but there's not much reason for them not to do something similar with the new trilogy.

  7. Correct, but while docked, the Phantom is not in play so it can't be targeted by Boba. So you kill the Ghost title, which keeps the Phantom from deploying and keeps the VCX-100 from performing rear arc attacks and getting the bonus turret attack, because those benefits only apply to the ship with the Ghost title. I originally thought the same and was going to rule that way: i.e. the Phantom title specifically references the 'Ghost' and since the Ghost title is gone that negates the ability of the Phantom title card. However, in the FAQ for Boba Fett it says the following: "If Boba Fett is used to discard the Ghost title while the Phantom is docked, the Phantom remains docked and cannot deploy until the Ghost is destroyed (forcing it to deploy)" The last part of that sentence refers to the VCX as the 'Ghost' even after the title is gone. Since there is precedent in the FAQ I would therefore rule that the Phantom title is still active and the VCX can still perform primary attacks out of the rear arc and perform the extra turret attacks. I agree, it's the Phantom title that allows the extra turret and rear arc attack. It's still docked and has it's title, and therefore still has it's rules in effect as they state "while you are docked..." I kinda feel that they refer to it as Ghost in that example for consistency If there's no ghost title then there can't be a ghost though I see your point.
  8. One time I flew my YV off the board and denied myself the game, it was not a good feeling.
  9. Cheapshot Illicit or EPT 2 points Before you reveal your maneuver you may discard this card to perform an attack then receive a stress token and reduce your attack by 1 for the rest of the turn.
  10. Just to be clear, here is the text for both titles: Ghost: Equip the Phantom title card to a friendly Attack Shuttle and dock it to this ship. After you execute a maneuver, you may deploy it from your rear guides. Phantom: While you are docked, the Ghost can perform primary weapon attacks from its special firing arc, and, at the end of the Combat phase, it may perform an additional attack with an equipped . If it performs this attack, it cannot attack again this round. So what I've taken from this thread is that if you Boba either title card then if negates the abilities of the other because they specifically mention ghost and phantom?
  11. (Gunboat fan), an XX-year-old man who posted to the forums incessantly, was referred for psychiatric evaluation. The referring physician said that the patient believed that their favorite ship was still going to be released. The gunboat was his favorite, but his relationship with actual released TIE models was strained. When the gunboat was in it's twenties, it was accused of not fitting into the TIE aesthetic, following which (Gunboat fan) developed knee jerk reactions. After many waves he posted renders and self designed the ship, creating many separate threads for the seven figure number of gunboat fans (citation needed). When it was pointed out that the gunboat was losing it's niche the patient claimed that this simply wasn't true, stating "It should handle like like a y wing/ xwing cross but have missiles and cannons. plus it should be able to double shoot and have hyperspace capability and have tractor beam and ion and it'll be low cost and you can fly four of them and lots of people would buy it and..." Over the next few months, the patient displayed behaviors indicating that he believed the gunboat was going to be released. He posted renders and justifications exactly as before. He often rushed up to the News page at the sound of announcements and would insist that his gunboat was going to be released. The above behaviors persisted for the next XX years. His self-care, sleep and appetite were unchanged. Forum goers reported that during the current admission the patient had been looking for the gunboat among future waves. Diagnosis: Based on the history and examination, we considered differential diagnoses of delusional disorder and atypical bereavement. The Gunboat fan refused any psychiatric intervention for himself
  12. What??? As far as I know it's not.... Unless it was in some new comic I haven't seen yet It was in Star Wars Tie Fighter the game. It is definitely canon. The EU storylines are all "legends" so nothing story wise is tied to the EU arcs anymore, but that is different from saying all the ships that aren't in post Mouse era material are removed from canon. The bigger question is does it bring something interesting to the game. I would argue it does, but not more so than what previous waves have delivered. The question is if there is an opening in Wave 9 for it. Be careful when you mention the Quasi-canon state of legends otherwise BKL will come back.
  13. One thing I have to respect (begrudgingly) about the gunboat crew is their dedication. At this point they are basically this:
  14. Gunboat was mentioned and no sight of Darius or Gecko... Odd
  15. Can Boba discard the titles of certain ships and negate the benefits? If he can would a ghost & phantom no longer be able shoot out the rear arc or take a second shot with a turret?
  16. So I've been thinking of a scum build to take to my League this week. I think I've settled on this: Guri — StarViper 30 Push the Limit 3 Advanced Proton Torpedoes 6 Fire-Control System 2 Autothrusters 2 Virago 1 Ship Total: 44 Zuckuss — G-1A Starfighter 28 Juke 2 4-LOM 1 Fire-Control System 2 Tractor Beam 1 Mist Hunte r0 Ship Total: 34 Kaa'To Leeachos — Z-95 Headhunter 15 Juke 2 Homing Missiles 5 Guidance Chips 0 Ship Total: 22 Ideally Zuckuss or Kaa'To can juke using Zuckuss' evade based on who has the better opportunity while Guri does her own thing. I'm open to thoughts and improvements though. I'm also considering this instead.

    Women...

    Good on ya. What happens if you find out she likes flying Soontir Fel and a Decimator though?
  18. Build A looks pretty good. For build B I would drop homing missiles for Proton Rockets and put Baffle on the lambda, If you were feeling ballsy you would drop stealth on Soontir for Targeting computer which is how I prefer him now. You'd end up at 98 points and that's an almost assured bid.
  19. By that logic freeing them should be just as easy.
  20. A friend flew essentially this list at the Hoth Open. Only difference was that he was using plasma torps, and R4 aggromech on both scouts and N'Dru had hull upgrade. Recon spec allows for full attack modification as well as either a spare focus for defense or a target lock for the next turn.
  21. Yup, those primary schools are a real breeding ground of enemy soliders, both foriegn and domestic.I mean seriously, what is it with (some) Americans thinking that Red Dawn js a factual representation of their ability to fight a fully trained and equipped military. The need to own a gun is a complete nonsense. The UK has managed fine without them thanks. OP: I'm surprised people are like that. I know some people get very worked up over things like COD, and you even get people thinking Harry Potter and D&D promote witchcraft and devil worship - but these are tiny spaceship figures. Some people just look for a reason to get upset I guess. Americans are raised learning that their country was established by militiamen beating off one of the best armies in the world. The UK does fine because it's too boring and rainy there for criminals to get motivated. You also have beef eaters on every corner who saunter over to any commotion mumbling "Wot's all this then" while CCTV records everything. I love how he says that a people cannot fight off a trained military force when history shows that they typically do so quite effectively. Revolutionary War? Vietnam? Do they not teach you about these events in school in the UK? I'm not necessarily for people owning assault rifles and I do not own a gun myself, but I am an American (in Texas no less!) and do think the 2nd Amendment is one of the most important, and being careful to protect it is worthwhile. This just sounds so delusional.All of these "preppers" who think some assault rifles and canned beans in their homes are gonna let them resist a modern day military.....LOL Hell, one armored tank could overrun an entire town of citizens armed with military-armed firearms, if it wanted to. Let alone one long-range missile strike or drone strike, conducted from thousands of miles away, haha. IF a modern military wanted to wipe you out, they could easily do it. Fortunately for humanity, that is never something that is going to happen outside of preppers' most delusional and paranoid fear-fantasies. And no, the reason the government does not and will not start drone-striking its own people has nothing to do with them being afraid of someone's basement full of AR-15s. Don't let people justify their own gun-fetishism with some BS fantasy that they are keeping all of us safe from some oppressive tyrannical regime that is only held back from absolutely totalitarian genodice by fear of Jebidiah Neckbeard's gun collection. Jeez.... You don't need to be afraid of a basement collection of Assault Rifles but you do need to be afraid if Jim Bob knows where you're main power conduits are or internet hubs. If the invading force is trying to occupy the country then they are going to need to keep everything running as smoothly as possible, if some ******* with wire cutters performed the right cut after a week or so then the regular citizenry will be rioting and the invading forces have a couple hundred thousand per city problems to worry about. Well, other than assuming that people will be rioting (prepper mentality always assumes the worst of humanity in absence of society, even though in natural disasters like Katrina and Hurricane Sandy or Flint Water Crisis we see many more examples of people coming together to cooperate collectively in times of need), this is an argument for owning wire cutters. Not basements full of military-grade firepower. So, I think you're saying that modern times and contexts suggest we change the Second Amendment from "right to bear arms" to "right to bear tools." I am okay with this. Katrina and Flint had the benefit of an entire nation working to help the people. American infrastructure is outdated and reliant a handful of nodes. For the most part it's impossible to detect issues other than to go wire by wire. If one or two major cities on the eastern seaboard lost power for a week then tensions would rise rapidly. Combine that with an occupying force and you would have riots. It's during this period you have to be afraid of Jim Bob because he shows up to town and starts handing out his assault rifles to get the party really going. Jim Bob can't legally own "assault rifles". He can own semi-automatic rifles legally. Politicians like Obama know there is a difference and that's why they say "military style" firearms when they talk of trampling our rights. Don't go polluting my fantasy scenarios with details.

  23. With just the teensiest help of the economic and military superpowers France, Spain and the Netherlands. It's not as if the colonies had the undivided attention of the British forces. And they are lucky they didn't but that's not how it's taught for the most part. Even in 1812 divided attentions prevented the Americans from getting stomped (Napoleon was a jerk).
