Hello everyone! I'm pretty inexperienced in tournament play but I am looking to go to some store championships this year. I'm hoping I can get some feedback on the list I have been running lately. Sorry in advance if a list similar to this has been posted I looked around a bit for similar posts and didn't find any.
Dash Rendar (YT-2400) 58 pts
-Push the LImit
-Heavy Laser Canon
Super Dash. This is probably the ship I have the most experience with and is very forgiving to inexperienced/mistake prone pilots (me)
Miranda Doni (K-Wing) 42 pts
-Twin Laser Turret
I have been using this build for a few games and I really enjoy it. Basically my strategy is to get out of as many arcs as possible on lower pilot skill ships and to drop the mines on ships moving after me. I took Jan Ors over Recon Specialist because I needed 1 point for the Proximity Mine and it allows me to potentially assign evade tokens to Dash when I get the focus from Kyle Katarn.
I have only played a two games with it against PS 8 Brobots and a Soontir/Palp/Defender list. These games were against my friends and we are all pretty inexperienced so keep that in mind. I was able to do well in both but I didn't necessarily feel great about either game. I'll give a summary of both and if I could have done things better let me know.
Against the Brobots: I was able to take out IG-88C after two rounds of shooting thanks to IG blanking on 4 hits from Dash and Proximity mine/HLC fire in the following round. I struggled bringing down the final IG because it was almost always in my donut hole. Miranda does not do enough damage to take things down quickly. Luckily he kept after Dash so I was able to set up Miranda to always get decent shots. If I had not taken down the first IG so early I think this game could have easily gone the other way.
Fel/Shuttle/Defender: This was a few weeks ago so it is starting to get hazy, but basically I ignored Soontir and killed everything else. I almost lost Miranda early, but was able to get out of the fight and regen my shields shooting at the shuttle while still doing damage. After taking down the shuttle Dash got some big shots on the Defender and took it out in two rounds with help from Miranda. One thing that helped was that my opponent tried to initially bait me with Soontir but since I had decided before hand that I was going to ignore it until the end he wasted a few turns with Soontir out of the fight. Once it was down to Soontir vs Dash & Miranda we decided to call it since it had been close to 75mins and playing it out was going to take forever.
So what does everyone think? I think I would probably have a hard time against 4 TLT since my agility isn't very good and I don't have a lot of raw damage output. Is there any other glaring weaknesses that I am missing? I have flown Corran with Dash in the past and it is very good but I usually get him blown up too early since most people go after Corran first. My thought is that Miranda will be more forgiving and I can always use my advanced slam and take an evade if I need to get out of the fight.
Sorry if this post was rambling/boring! If you are reading this I really appreciate that you took the time to do so. If I need to give additional info let me know and I will do my best to add it.
