    Rickenbacker69 got a reaction from Cgriffith in What is your favorite list   
    Regen Poe and TLT Miranda - simply because that's what I played in my very first tournament (and was very close to winning half the games with!) But I'm also a big fan of Dash with a Ghost, even though I haven't had as much success with it... If only Poe was as good today as he was a year ago .

    Rickenbacker69 got a reaction from Klutz in Overlapping vs. Touching   
    They could also just do 1 forwards to remain touching indefinitely, if facing each other .
     
    Otherwise I second what Klutz said. "Touching" in the game doesn't just mean that the bases are physically touching, it means that the ships overlapped and are thus considered touching. You can't be touching another ship unless you overlapped it first, or it overlapped you.

    Rickenbacker69 got a reaction from Hawkstrike in I don't think movable Strike Foils accomplish anything, they just look cool.   
    It's the opposite, actually. You'd want your weapons mounted as close together as possible, and as close to the centerline as you can - hence why the P-38 Lightning (with 2 cannon and 4 machine guns mounted together in the nose cone) was a great weapons platform in WW2, while the wing-mounted weapons of most fighters were really only effective at one specific range band (i.e. where they were harmonized). The X-Wing seems set up to make sure that you hit with as few shots as possible, even MORE so when the S-foils are in "attack" position, spreading the guns out even further! And don't get me started on the B-Wing, which would most likely miss close shots entirely, as the target would pass between the guns.
     
    But X-Wings look cool, so I try not to let mundane concerns such as these bother me too much .

    Rickenbacker69 got a reaction from IG88E in Top "bad loser" moments of your opponent   
    My opponent literally taught me this a few weeks ago, at Regionals! Sure, it was just my third tournament overall, but still - I should have known that .
     
    Haven't really had any bad losers, just one guy who tried to stress me into making bad moves from the start. It worked, and I parked my Poe in front of his Brobot and Bossk at range 2, facing the wrong way... But I still won the game .

    Rebel Aces is great, and I second the T-70 - it's very playable out of the box, with the included cards (unlike many expansions, sadly).

    Rickenbacker69 got a reaction from MajorJuggler in NOVA Squadron Radio – Episode 51: Wave 9 and Regionals Review   
    I liked it, though my main takeaway was Paul's 4-ship Rebel list, as I love rebels and really don't like having to fly two large ships to survive the current meta . I don't mind the shorter format, as my commute to work has been shorter lately, so it matches perfectly!
     
    Any chance you could put up all lists mentioned in the episode on the blog, or here, or both? Would be a nice service, even though I've already reassembled Paul's list from the podcast so I can try it myself .

    I used to play wargames with Micro Armor, which is 1:285, or 6mm. I mainly painted tanks, but you could make the infantry look pretty good with a bit of patience!

    Well, lt sure looks like cheating, and the timing is very suspicious. But whether he cheated or not, he did break the tournament rules by fiddling with his dial during activation.

    On an unrelated note: how hard is it to rotate an image 90 degrees?
