So to bring this back to the original question: Should accuracy dice count when attacking a named squadron?. I currently vote yes. Without the risk of an accuracy dice taking scatter put of play howlrunner simply is OP and Luke with his five hp and two brace can survive a great deal of attack runs against a gang of TIEs. The defense tokens and an extra depth to the named squadrons that makes going after them as much of a risk for the attacker as the lose of points is a risk for the defender. Just my two cents.
