  1. Take a break from X-Wing and play something else. I did that at the height of the fat turret dominance. I came back 6 months later (early 2016) to a much healthier meta and started enjoying the game again. Now, I feel like it is time for another break.
  2. I am actually baffled that there are people who say anything other than TLT. It is so superior to all other turrets that it just isn't a question.
  3. Why not have both? My point is that on Miranda, TLT is worth more than on anything else. For her, points cost is almost irrelevant, as long as it leaves enough squad points to bring a friend that can carry her to an end game against something that is worth less than her.
  4. If you had made me chose between an extra Z-95 and TLT on Miranda, then I would throw away that Z so fast is entered hyperspace.
  5. 1. I tend to switch lists a lot, simply because I grow tired of flying the same thing too many games in a row. Occasionally, I find a squad I really really like and I stick to it for several months (for tournaments, I still mix it up on game nights). I don't adhere to the belief that you need to practise the same thing over and over. I believe in flying a wide variety of lists to gain experience in the game as a whole. 2. Ask myself why I lost it. Was it dice, match-up, tactics or strategy? (Yes, tactics and strategy are two different things.) Rarely it is dice, but that does happen. Match-up is becoming more and more common, since the game in its design is being pushed more towards "auto"-wins and "auto"-losses. Was it my setup and overall plan (that would be strategy)? Was it my decisions during the game (tactics)? 3. Yes 4. No. To me, the game is about looking at the board and taking decisions depending on what I see. I understand that some players (probably including most of the top players) approach the game much more methodically.
  6. There are also 35 Mirandas in those same cuts. She is only for one faction.
  7. Discounting the lists that aren't entered in ListJuggler, I count 35 imperial lists making the cut in this years nationals/continentals so far (nationals in Germany, France, South Africa, UK, Poland and US, and the North American championships). The number of Nyms present is 48. So a single pilot outflies an entire faction.
  8. True, but it's not like these are some isolated results. The other big nationals/continentals paint the same picture.
  9. So 1 imperial list in top 16 at UK nationals, none in polish.
  10. That is true. I didn't think of the fact that generics are almost extinct. I just noted that the dot named Scimitar squadron pilot was bigger than Dash Rendar and thought "that can't be right". I didn't mean to critique your work, other than constructively. Sorry if it came across as negative. I appreciate what you put into this.
  11. Let's say the top 8 of a tournament consisted of one TIE swarm and seven lists with Miranda + friend. Just counting the number of each ship would be massively misleading in terms of how relevant they are in the meta.
  12. I think that would give the best representation of how relevant different ships are in the meta.
  13. I assume the size of the dots is relative to the number of each ship that was fielded. My question is; why is it not based on points?
  14. I'm gonna say early 2016. Back then, all three factions were relevant and each had several list archetypes that were reasonably competitive.
  15. He likes TLTs even less. Especially when there are 4 of them.
