    I need a rebel list

    You can easily swap Luke out for Garven in @Porkchop Express's list (which is very similar to one thats been going around the webs that I have been thinking about too). Blast redline out of the sky before he fires. Nuke howl before he has a chance. Just gotta fly in some sort of formation and probably have to take a Trajectory Simulator on the chin. Triple Sim Torp Punishers are probably the best counter to it (or super aces).

    What happened to epic?

    Jamming Beam change

    A Tie/D upgrade for ships with Cannons could bring it to the fore. Especially with the changes to Tractor beam. But as others have said its range and lack of damage is what does it in. It needs to be used on high int ships but those ships don't want to sacrifice their attack to jam. I really wish B-Wings, Gunboats, Sycks and Defenders could double tap with cannons. I could definitely see a two defender list (one with tractor and one with jamming beam) eating up things if there was a way for them to double tap.

    RZ-2 A-wing: Vectored Thrusters?

    I would not be surprised to see L'ulo on the table (if you can arc dodge well enough) but Tallie's ability is sub par I think. Its analogous to the Fang's concord dawn title since its only in the bulls eye.

    Low PS Interceptors

    I have to agree, interceptors are fantastic for their cost right now. I will probably buy 2 more so I can fly 5 lol.

    The A-wing is where they dropped the ball

    I agree that A-Wings are missing their classical Ace. I wouldn't be surprised if Tycho comes back at ps 5 once the A-Wing gets released as an expansion. Right now they are cheap blockers and thats about it. But you can have 5 with PRockets now!

    Dear FFG, please keep things mellow and boring...

    Unfortunately Trajectory Simulator is still an extremely hard counter for Swarms as it is. I almost think tie's need a points decrease in the extended format just to be viable.

    Dear FFG, please keep things mellow and boring...

    Agreed. Making it hard to token stack has made the game extremely more fun and interesting. Lets keep it that way!

    Echoing others, Ten Numb is fantastic. I also love Braylen, but it seems I need to bring along Cassian Andor to make him terrifying. Also I would just staple Advanced Sensors to your named B-Wings. Barrel Roll - > Hard 1 or Talon is too fantastic to not do every turn!

    Heavy Laser Cannon - HLC - Are you using it?

    If your ship has Barrel Roll than its far easier to get HLC on the joust than it seems. I played Ten/Braylen and Cassian this weekend and had at least one HLC trigger each combat phase.

    Alphabet Squadron (new SW novel)

    Alphabet because its BUXYA! I Get it! So funny! To be honest I think its great that there are going to be more novels. Lets give Disney more money so they can take over the whole world and feed us exactly the entertainment we want!

    also some of the dials are the same (like Tie Fighters) so you can continue to use them. Just need cardboard and models.

    1.0 upgrades you hope will find their way to 2.0

    I could see TLT coming back, but I would suggest that you only do the second attack if the first misses. I could also only see it with 2 dice instead of 3. Id like to see Synced Turret and Blaster Turret come back as well. Those were pretty fun because they required tokens to use. I could see both of those being range 2-3 to separate them from the other turrets. Although to keep things from being booring, what if blaster turret just required you to have a focus, but if you spent the focus you could attack someone outside your arc? Synced could stay the same.

    Afterburners should be Small or Medium base

    I still don't think it would be game breaking. Maybe down the road there will be a way to give Norra or Heff Tobber a boost on that initial engagement, but it just seems like a missed opportunity to not let medium bases have afterburners. Heck I would even take it on a medium base ship if it only had one charge!

    Afterburners should be Small or Medium base

    Its still limited to only 2 charges. Its not like Boba could do it more than twice! Way different then the old days of Fat Han with Engine Upgrade.
