  1. Im not going to argue with you on that one, obi-wan v maul in rebels is epic. definetly better dramaticaly but from a pure action point of view I'd have to give it to maul v tano.
  2. When i was watching it, it is immedialty noticable that the quality of the animation during the duel was well above what the clone wars had shown before. It didnt have that stiff action figure feel to it, the footwork and the movement of the strikes looked so natural it had to be motion capture, then to find out that it was inded motion capture and they got RAY PARK!!!!! to do it? Awesome! i dont think its the best lightsabre duel ever, but its the best in any of the animated shows and better than a lot of the live action too.

    More noob inquiries

    it really is, it allows the game to be tweaked very easily, certain slots can be removed from ships or even specific pilots, points can be tweaked and there are even plenty of cards that have a different cost depending on the ship or pilot they are placed on. if you ever played the first edition and saw the triple jumpmasters lists youd really appreciate it!

    The High Republic

    id agree with this, you could argue that jedi from 200 years before the clone wars should not be flying with clone soldiers but, meh. i think it will depend on how popular the books and comics become though, if it does well enough that the high republic gets a tv show or movies then we'll see them in x-wing.
  5. I'll go and see it. im expecting it to be an utter car crash but you never know. i figure if i go in expecting the absolute worst, it has to be better than i expected.
  6. theres a good chance that Wedges 'presence' is just Denis Lawson standing in the background without saying a word then he's suddenly killed. for no apparent reason.
  7. I do the same, but bizarrely, i make better choices with saesee in the squad so i dont need to use his abilitiy. knowing hes there to change the dial im more relaxed and make better choices.
  8. Actually change that; Crew: 1 force point, 1 recuring. When a friendly ship at range 0-3 attacks they may cancel any number of hits or crits. if they do, they may recover the same number of force tokens.
  9. Crew: 3 force points, 1 recuring. At the start of the activation phase you may spend 3 force, if you do all friendly ships in range 1 - 3 recover all force tokens. 6 points (?) edit: woops, meat to be range 1-3
  10. Ive flown Saesee quite a bit and, personally, i love him. however i really dont think hed work with a swarm. hes only got 2 force tokens so thats only 2 dials you can change in any one turn. for me hes worked best as a wingman to an ace like obi-wan or anakin. even better if the wingman has Sense equiped. if youre playing Saesee, put an R4 droid on him (and his wingmate(s) if you can) to really open up their dials.
  11. 1) the core set gives you 2 ties, definetly get the tie advanced for vader then the choice is yours, get a few more ties (a bit pricier) for a swarm or wait for the tie interecptor, defender or inquisitors tie to come out. any one of those will complement vader and 2 ties to give you a few decent options for lists. is it competitve? thats another debate, and a lot of it will be down to skill and practice. 2) get a second x-wing (primarily for wedge) then maybe a falcon as well, 2 x-wings and a falcon should provide a few decent enough list options though. you could wait for saw's renegades to come out and that gives you another x-wing (but no wedge) and a u-wing instead of the falcon. 3) thats a very very open question. and the only sensible answer is: What you think you'll enjoy the most. after a few games though you'll start to understand what you enjoy flying and what you dont. maybe you'll fall in love with swarms, maybe aces, who knows. what i would advise against doing is buying expansions just for one card (not so much of an issue in 2.0 though) or bulk buying a ton of ships (at least initially) when theres a good chance you'll never put them on the table, later on, if you do decide to invest some more money into x-wing, those bulk buys on e-bay can be a great deal. as i said, id hold off for now and just get yourself a few ship expansions until you know what youll enjoy playing.
  12. i got this down for a few games at the weekend: Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Obi-Wan Kenobi - 58 •Obi-Wan Kenobi - Guardian of the Republic (47) R4 Astromech (2) Calibrated Laser Targeting (4) Sense (5) Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter - •Ric Olié - 50 •Ric Olié - Bravo Leader (42) Daredevil (3) •R2-C4 (5) V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper - 25 Gold Squadron Trooper - (25) V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper - 25 Gold Squadron Trooper - (25) ARC-170 Starfighter - 104th Battalion Pilot - 42 104th Battalion Pilot - (42) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder lots of fun and it definetly has teeth.
  13. wow. i really like these, great work!
  14. id have to agree with this 100%
  15. whats the footprint of an individual module? if we cant get a unit that has the same footprint as a large base ship then it would fit in perfectly in most storage solutions.
