    Rebel Tie/ln Fighter

    TBH I miss 1e Tie Fighter Ashoka. She was janky and fun. I wish they’d brought her into 2.0, make her ability charge or force based.( I know we’ll never get scavenger crane+Sabine+VI+ion bomb again, but at least Ashoka and her pilot ability back) Ashoka could also work in an Rz-1 as well, actually I would prefer that.

    I don’t get it. This just goes to Asmodee NA organized play homepage?

    Are card packs going to be a thing?

    Honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if they killed 3 birds with 1 stone. Wave 2 conversion kits: each with their own faction campaign rules. Includes new pilots, epic ship conversions, and how to setup and run a campaign with all of the Necessary materials, as well as multiple copies of any new generic upgrades released during the previous year (up until packaging release) and any new faction exclusives. probably retail for about $50 USD, same as the big wave 1 convos.

    Wave 5 predictions!

    If I may interject, while the scale on screen is a little wonky, according to official measurements the Alliance Y is 16.4 m. The Republic Y is 23.4 m. For comparison, the U-wing is 24.98 m, only a meter longer than the republic Y. So by measurement the republic Y may be a medium base because of its length, but you are right it’s not any wider. Either way, it’s going to look awkward.

    The only acceptable answer. Oh okay. Well in that case, if you want RAC you probably need to free up 90 points or so, so you can give him some upgrades. You can go the barebones route and just take a generic for 72. Either way, unless you’re planning on only running a 2 ship list, SNR is definitely out of the picture if you want to do RAC+Vader+

    Decimators got cheaper and you still can’t fit them in? What are you trying to pair with RAC?

    I’m going to casually point out Brillant Evasion is not faction/force user alignment locked, and is strictly better than a single purple evade token. Slap a stealth device on Vader and laugh as opponents attempt to hit you.

    That’s why I want to shy away rigged cargo shoot. Oh you didn’t play scum in 1st edition? Here’s a card in your conversion kit you can’t use.

    I think I can find a better upgrade than rigged cargo chutes, but Leia is definitely an autoinclude on our *sniff* non-scarif U-wings.

    Probably not any better/worse than triple or Quad U-wing.

    Getting Over the Jousting Syndrome

    Disney actually tried around 2014 to make an arcade style flight sim game. It was online arena based (think like Wowp/ WT arcade mode) but it had X-wings, Y-wings, Tie Fighters. There were even different variants, like you started off with the T-65a and could progress and unlock up to like the T-65d. Eventually it ended up getting cancelled. Not sure why. While I would love a game like that, until EA loses their exclusive license, you’re probably better off finding an old GameCube or PS-2 and playing the rogue squadron games to scratch that itch. Don’t get me wrong, Star fighter assault is cool, but has a different feel. Actually come to think of it there was a homemade shootem up flight sim made where you could either do the trench run or battle or Endor. It was free on github, I don’t remember what it was called though.

    Red sharpie is the best 2.0 conversion kit any company has ever sold. Change my mind

    So I have to ask what type of list you’ve been thinking about, because typically that type of thinking will get you in the salt mines very quickly. Sure, tripUps are the current bogeyman, but you’ll never face them if you’re explicitly building a counter to them, because chances are your counter looses hard to something else.

    Just realized that Silencers lost their Mod slot...

    Well it wasn’t emergency adjustment worthy, so I guess the thinking was leave it until the rest of the changes drop.
