  1. omg... this is the best thing ever.
  2. soon we will have magical new A-Wings and all of the Wave 11 "argh" feelings will be gone!
  3. I think it comes down to personal taste. I personally enjoy Rebel Nym/Miranda list with Sabine/C-3PO taking up the pair of crew slots depending on your flavor. I feel Nym to be squishy, especially since he appears to like flying in range 1 of the enemy while Miranda picks away @ R3. I don't think it's wrong to go crew vs droid, it just depends on your playstyle. The chassis is versatile like that.
  4. IF - big IF... Alpha striking Cruise Missiles become a problem for this list... Jess Pava (25) R2-D6 (1) Primed Thrusters (1) Swarm Leader (3) Integrated Astromech (0) Biggs Darklighter (25) R4-D6 (1) Integrated Astromech (0) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Crack Shot (1) Chardaan Refit (-2) Snap Shot (2) Autothrusters (2) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Crack Shot (1) Chardaan Refit (-2) Snap Shot (2) Autothrusters (2) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Total: 100 View in Yet Another Squad Builder helps against TLT too. Juke on average only proc's 2-4 times a game...almost always on the snap shot. but I feel loosing Jan is giving up a lot of offense. I use her surprisingly more to boost the Snap Shot attack than Jess's attack.
  5. Thanks! that was my biggest issue was when I deleted the ship. It was during setup. As for the table flip, I was hosting, and he quit right after hitting the flip the table button.
  6. There are some good strategies here. Thank you for those that are giving me some options. I know the list doesn't seem like much on paper and it shouldn't work, but it does surprisingly well for me. Its really only one of a handful of lists I can fly competitively and continue doing very well with. That and it's a load of fun to fly! So that helps. It is actually very efficient in design already and even I am surprised at the damage it puts through even without Jess in the fight.
  7. ok after reading the thread I decided to get TTS another go. I was trying to figure out Vassal but played my first online game tonight using TTS. I found out I was using the wrong version of the "mod" I'm very impressed at how easy and intuitive the interface is now. The dial setting and reveal was awesome, but I accidentally deleted an A-Wing on setup and that made that ship a bit harder to use because it was no longer semi-automated. The only thing that kinda sucked was my first opponent flipped the table after I got a crit through on Whisper which ended up being a direct hit... sucks, but thats the game. I would have loved to play it out. Considering I went from installing the right version of the game to playing through my first game in under 2 hours is the perfect example of what makes it so much easier than Vassal. Too bad its time for bed, I wanted to do another one!
  8. Yea I think so. I'm just trying to prep for every possible matchup so that I can have a plan of attack for each and every opponent. This isn't a meta list and is pretty janky so I doubt many will be expecting it to do as well as it does. Not every list is good against every other list, but being prepared and having a game plan for those uphill battles is better than dying in round 2 or 3 lol
  9. Please stop critiquing the list guys. I'm looking for strategy tips. The list does not need critique, it has proven very effective against many meta calls and very good players. I'm looking for tips on dealing with TLT/Bombers which is a very bad matchup in rock/paper/scissors.
  10. I don't like it lol I tried this for fun: Green Squadron Pilot (19) Juke (2) Cruise Missiles (3) Deadeye (1) Guidance Chips (0) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Juke (2) Cruise Missiles (3) Deadeye (1) Guidance Chips (0) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Juke (2) Proton Rockets (3) Crack Shot (1) Guidance Chips (0) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Juke (2) Proton Rockets (3) Crack Shot (1) Guidance Chips (0) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Total: 100 View in Yet Another Squad Builder Juke is there for late game to help with offense. The crackshot/pocket rockets did a lot more damage.
  11. @Vineheart01 I have no problems or adjustments to make to the list. As I stated in the original post I fly it very well and have dealt with other high-alpha lists quite easily. Jess does reliably get double mods (focus/ability), the A-Wings do regularly snap, and Jan does a lot more than other people expect (extra die for the A-Wings on the snap is a hilarious surprise) and actually does okay damage. She has the same overall hitpoints of an X-Wing with the same 2 evade dice. I've tried dropping Jan for another A and upgrading the existing A's and it just doesn't work as good. I know on paper it doesn't seem tanky or offensively effective... And the 7 die from Jess gets off on average 2 times a game, often 4-5 dice attacks are her average. I usually use the A-Wings to strip tokens and situation depending give an A-wing the extra die from Jan. Then Jess hits last and throws 4-6 dice situation depending. It is a very versatile list that allows me a lot of options on the board. I'm aware it is an uphill battle against TLT and bombs... but how do swarms and other lists that are typically not suited to taking on tLT/Bomb lists compete with them?
  12. they crunch pretty good actually I think that is the key to the list, let the opponent think they should just joust it because... it's A-wings and a Hawk with a low PS X-Wing... really... that can't do much? but it does!
  13. nope, not at all. not when someone is flying him properly anyways. I've killed 3/4 Nym's I've faced because 3 of them tried to joust me and get the cruise missile off.. Jess took 2 shields once, then slapped back with 7 dice after the A-Wings and Jan softened him up a bit. Those 3 times I've killed Nym, he only got cruises off and then went poof.
  14. I've been practicing my tournament list lately trying to get as many different matchups as possible as I want to take it to regionals this year. I am currently sitting 24-6 with it. I have gone over this list hard and I can't find anyways to improve it, and talking to much more seasoned players and smarter list builders than I they see no way to improve it either. I fly it very well and a couple others have tried it and ditched it as they can't figure it out. I have identified two very tough matchups - bombs and TLT. Ace bombers specifically being a huge issue. Here is the list: Jess Pava (25) R2-D6 (1) Swarm Leader (3) Integrated Astromech (0) Jan Ors (25) Trick Shot (0) Dorsal Turret (3) Nien Nunb (1) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Juke (2) Chardaan Refit (-2) Snap Shot (2) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Green Squadron Pilot (19) Juke (2) Chardaan Refit (-2) Snap Shot (2) A-Wing Test Pilot (0) Total: 100 View in Yet Another Squad Builder Matchups that I've flown: Dengar/Bossk - flown against this 3 times. Won all 3 times. It's a tough matchup, but once Dengar dies gets a lot easier. - played against it twice Imperial Aces - it crumbled and died - played a handful of times 2SF/OL - it crumbled and died - played three times Dash/Poe - it crumbled and died - played twice Dengar/Fenn - it crumbled and died - played twice 2 Scouts/Fenn - it crumbled and died - played three times OldFennaroo - it crumbled and died. played twice Agromech/Torp scouts - lost an A-wing. Played this 3 times Dengar/Assaj - Tractorbeams are not fun for my list. I have only played against it once and got wrecked hard! Lost in first round of combat, biggest loss I've had Mixed Defender/TLT squad - very close match, I made a critical mistake early and lost an A-wing first round. Won this one TLT Thug life - Lost this one, came down to Jan Ors at full health vs a half health Y-Wing. Y-Wing got me in the end. Smartest opponent yet for how to take down my list focusing on the A-wings first. Miranda/Nym - The best bomber player in the city flew this, he is very very good. He took a self inflicted proton bomb, otherwise I did hardly anything other than take shields of Miranda and scratched Nym a bit. This was harsh... 2 TLT controlling the 2/3 range band, and if I get into R1 he just bombs me and I die. I can't use Snap/Juke effectively because if I setup for blocks/R1 he just bombs them and the A-wings crumbled. My list is built for R1 engagements. Kannan/Biggs - Biggs died first round of combat. I flew this game poorly jousting the Ghost with full mods and Finn after Biggs died. TLT slaughtered me. I got the Ghost in the end, but lost to the shuttle when it deployed. 1 A-Wing at 1 health vs a full health Zeb when it deploys behind me. So... TLT's are a big issue. No room to throw Auto-thrusters on this list which is something I really really want to do. However, Jan has proved too effective with the Dorsal/Nien combo that I can't spare those points. that 4 straight being green has been very important. the Dorsal has proved to be problematic to those that thing they can get in close to her. Luckily my list excels at Range 1 engagements, an TLT doesn't like the bubble. So I can usually down 2 TLT lists easily enough depending on the Ace or ace/s flying with them. Four of them do present a challenge... Or the double tap from Kanan Biggs. Bombers - specifically Ace Bombers with TLT. I have no idea how to do this one... to reiterate, I loose if I try to keep my engagement at R3. The TLT's will tear me apart. I can't hide in the rocks like I usually do against turrets because bombers will just shut down the lanes. If I go for R1 engagement I get bombed. It is a VERY bad match up. When I fly against it again I'll try to keep at R3 and 6 dice with Jess to try and take down one of them. I won't catch Miranda, but I might catch Nym and kill him in 2 turns. I'm not looking for help with the list, I think it's set in stone at this point. I'm looking for advice on strategies on how to deal with TLT and bombers. I usually take 2 big rocks and a big debris cloud. Thinking of maybe swapping to 2 large debris and 1 large rock.
  15. I have both and haven't played either online yet... but I can honestly say I am leaning towards Vassal and will probably dive in a bit more this weekend and maybe try a game out. For me, as a new player to the digital X-Wing world I find that Vassal looks more intimidating at first because the UI is junk and until I actually read the blogs and realized that yes, the tokens and cards are supposed to be blank...I thought something was wrong. TTS is a lot prettier, but I find it annoying to setup and play because of the 3D/VR perspective. It's very cool, don't get me wrong, but I just don't like it. For me it just doesn't flow... at least Vassal appears to flow once you start. I just want to practice more because I'm determined to get to regionals this next season and make at top 16. Currently finishing between 2-11 at store champs depending on my matchups... so I need to fix a lot of that
