  1. Thanks
    Calibri Garamond got a reaction from Arttemis in Coversion Kits   
    Yeah, probably true. Still think more players would be better served from more small based ships and fewer large based. But, whatever really. X-wing 2.0!

    I think the numbers should reflect a mixture of what people generally run and what people would have a minimum of if they bought at least one of everything. Right now I would be short an X-Wing because of my transport. Maybe they plan to include stuff in an epic conversion later but I see it as an annoying cash grab on there part. 3 Decimators is just silly.

    We have another wave or 2 of hope yet. The quadjumer, u-wing and striker didn't release till well after their movies and we need more resistance ships for the potentially new mechanics they introduced with crossfire formation.

    Solo is scheduled to be released on May 25, so a wave centered around that film is probably unlikely to be spoiled anytime soon. In fact, we have yet to see a trailer for the film.
    I'd be really surprised if did not get the new A-wing soon, seeing as the the A-Wing is in dire need of some love and this provides the perfect oppertunity. Personally I'm really coming around to the idea of prequal stuff and hoping for that.

    Well, it costs nothing and gives you the eqvivalent of one free action early. It might also come in handy later, as Miranda is not unlikely to have Slamed away from a bad engagement. Might as well pick up a free TL on the way back to the frey. And, while at r1-2 of here opponents, she will probably opt for focus anyway.

    Calibri Garamond reacted to MUrunner20 in Fenn/Genesis Red/Thweek -Any hope of success?   
    @Calibri Garamond, got two games in over the weekend (one each using both or our lists) and went 2-0. You were right, baiting with TBC/Genesis Red is an excellent tactic and then cleaned up with Fenn and Thweek. I did modify your list a bit due to my opponent... I swapped out VI for Fearlessness and Cruise for Harpoons based on my opponent and it worked like a dream. I don't think I will use Fearlessness often but I 6 hit an Xwing (3x Crits and 3 Hits) after forcing his to burn his Focus with Fenn's engagement. Red worked out better than I hoped, PRS shields were clutch and that one straight was money. I may stick with your build but both were equally fun to play especially with Red's regen ability. Thanks for the advice and vote of confidence.

    Calibri Garamond got a reaction from polmoneys in Fenn/Genesis Red/Thweek -Any hope of success?   
    Yeah, I can see that working. 
    I think Thweek is pretty awesome and I agree on the upgrades for him. But 95 % of the time you will (should) opt for PS on Thweek, so seeing as he will always tie with you opponents highest PS, he deserves a 3 pt bid imo.  
    Your list is very similar to one I took to a tournament win recently: 
    Talonbane Cobra (28)
    Veteran Instincts (1)
    Cruise Missiles (3)
    Cloaking Device (2)
    Stygium Particle Accelerator (2)
    Guidance Chips (0)
    Vectored Thrusters (2)
    Vaksai (0)
    Fenn Rau (28)
    Push the Limit (3)
    Autothrusters (2)
    Concord Dawn Protector (1)
    Thweek (28)
    Fire-Control System (2)
    Autothrusters (2)
    StarViper Mk. II (-3)
    Virago (1)
    Total: 97

    The reasoning behind my list is that it has tools to deal with pretty much everything in the meta ATM. A 3 pt bid and 2 ps 11 will take down imperial ps 11 Alpha rather easily. 2X Autothrusters and high PS handles turrets well enough (Nym/miranda/dash primarilly). They can all (well Fenn and Thweek at least)  outfly the jousting lists (Tripple Scurrg/FSR-variants and so on). And the list also hits like a truck. The reposition cloaking device provides makes setting up 5 dice cruise pretty straight forward, and if you overshoot, well he will roll 5 anyway.  
    Win condition is basically kill anything above ps 9 and let Fenn and Thweek clean up.

    I've had the same feeling. The great nerfing, the release of TLJ and topping it off with a solid, balanced wave including the Gunboat might go a long way towards explaining a resurgence in X-wing.
