  1. They are missing some of the over the top advantages other factions have(aka broken whatever) they do have force which is great and their most broken ship may be tavson who is also a challenge to keep in the fight...no regen, no I6 hyper mobile ship, no cheap coordinate(rip squad leader null) and besides phasma really don’t have great crew(for the cost at least) that being said if you can play without those things they now have an awesome workhorse ship in the sf, cheap fo pilots that can fill out a list pretty good(scorch) the best faction upgrade, tech, a 4 dice gun, and arguably the best i5 pilot in the game(and i5 spot is highly competitive with killer pilots) and a double taping i6 isn’t too shabby either
  2. Yeah but he often pays for Luke gunner to get it, regen still only costs him 10 points...and guess what it’s probably still worth it...also Han without regen probably doesn’t want to pay for Luke gunner really though it seems regen is most degenerate when combined with great mobility...way more then agility value( the best green dice are the ones not rolled)
  3. I mean it could just be regen is still undercosted...or needs to me limited to 1 in a list....it needs to be like all the other super strong mechanics...if your taking this then it’s gonna massively hinder your squad
  4. I feel regen is far more problematic then force, they raised the cost of r2 for Jedi and it’s still super worth it. It’s the old “well I better get rid of something else” its like I totally understand force is easy mode in its own way....but anything i5 or 6 with hyper mobility and regen is the same problem we have been dealing with since 1.0...and even limited it’s still a problem. Han regen is a problem too... imagine if vader or kylo could regen...
  5. Yeah his ability to threaten more damage is pretty key, like any list with a ship like kylo, him being a 6 isn’t irrelevant either...considering kylo is only a 5 it does help with other ace lists, as well as the ability to not get ps killed, with the list you really want to threaten from 3 angles and qd is much better at that due to the possibility of the double tap. Also both him and tavsons bring your opponent hard choices because both benefit from light attacks(triggering abilities) also a QuickDraw that gets ignored early in the game is an awesome end game threat also tavson And kylo don’t really need upgrades to be good, yeah they could help, but the reason you bring them is completely in their chassis’s and natural abilities...so your better off having a more capable third wheel, and you really don’t want to give points to tavson....he is in the list to take damage and will probably get at least half pointed every game wow I say “also “ way too much lol
  6. You may be saying this as a joke but I have a local who plays republic that always seem to land Anakin in range 1 of tavson...he really hates that ship for some reason
  7. Yeah really the qd tavson kylo list just lost hate...and gained a 1 point bid out of it, and it really didn’t need hate, I know when I took it to trial I dropped it pre points change because if kylo is only getting shot by 1 ship at most your pretty much good(I also found I never used his ability because I just preferred to save force for mods) i pretty much knew knew it would still be a good list going forward, it was a great list last meta( remember Morgan won a trial with it) and was probably just under played. Kylo like never dies if your careful, and is a really well rounded list as for the f/o salad...idk what to say, why just one silencer...lol why a cadet...idk but I like it and I’m dying to see this guy play it
  8. Omg gonna have to try that lol
  9. It’s a cool idea but I think it’s more suited for a special format then an overall mechanic, only because of balance, either the ships are overpriced and not competitive for the sake of the cool theme, or someone finds a nasty combo or list which is now possible because vader can ride in slave one or something like that. It’s challenging enough to balance ships simply within each faction now that being said a seasonal format where everyone must take one scum ship, with probably other list building criteria could be really cool and fun for little change of pace tournaments
  10. Awesome man, I’ll probably try again tonight or tomorrow. It’s so many arcs lol, good challenge
  11. Great job, try against 5 of those blades, 5 was my limit, I couldn’t beat 6, at least with imperial aces
  12. It’s not like triple ups I promise ...but really I hope not
  13. So does your list look something like this Hera Syndulla (VCX-100) (73) Trick Shot (2) Leia Organa (2) Saw Gerrera (8) Ship total: 85 Half Points: 43 Threshold: 7 Luke Skywalker (62) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 62 Half Points: 31 Threshold: 3 Wedge Antilles (52) Crack Shot (1) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 53 Half Points: 27 Threshold: 3 Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v6!s=200!61:133,,,,46,58,,,:;4:,,,,142:;5:116,,,,142:&sn=Unnamed Squadron&obs= Seems pretty fun to me, although I’d actually like to leave leia at home for some other upgrade This also seems pretty good if your gonna fly like an upsilon then eventually decide to k turn Chopper" (70) Magva Yarro (8) Saw Gerrera (8) Ship total: 86 Half Points: 43 Threshold: 7 Luke Skywalker (62) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 62 Half Points: 31 Threshold: 3 Wedge Antilles (52) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 52 Half Points: 26 Threshold: 3 Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v6!s=200!63:,,,51,58,,,:;4:,,,,142:;5:,,,,142:&sn=Unnamed Squadron&obs= And just because this post isn’t big enough yet I think there is value in just bringing the basic 4 dice gun to keep your opponent honest while you bring the most thematic Luke possible Lothal Rebel (68) Ship total: 68 Half Points: 34 Threshold: 7 Luke Skywalker (62) Proton Torpedoes (12) R2-D2 (6) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 80 Half Points: 40 Threshold: 3 Wedge Antilles (52) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 52 Half Points: 26 Threshold: 3 Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v6!s=200!64:,,,,,,,:;4:,136,3,,142:;5:,,,,142:&sn=Unnamed Squadron&obs=
  14. Try against 5 blade b wings with shield upgrade and crack shot...I find the computer flys b wings better then cartel marauders. The kimos just create their own traffic jams too easy, I can’t beat 6 for the life of me but that’s almost a 300 point list so I understand, too many arcs, but 5 seems like a doable challenge
  15. Yeah I’m sure leia is as stupid on it as she is with everything but let’s face it, 4 dice without mods sometimes roll all hits and smack half points on ships. As a frequent tavson user I can vouch for how amazing 4 dice primary is without k turns. It is too bad that, like you said there will probably be dumb turret shenanigans, but I have always like the forward arc vcx, it’s really scary but there is counter play and you can still clench and pray if you don’t dodge the arc
