    Galactic Empire Ship Rankings

    This is correct. As for how it will do against higher Initiative, I’m not sure. If think it comes down to how well you can leverage the squirrelyness of the inquisitors to block.

    Galactic Empire Ship Rankings

    I ran this Vessery list the other day: TIE Advanced v1 - Inquisitor - 48 Inquisitor - (38) Fire-Control System (2) Supernatural Reflexes (8) TIE Advanced v1 - Inquisitor - 48 Inquisitor - (38) Fire-Control System (2) Supernatural Reflexes (8) TIE/D Defender - •Colonel Vessery - 101 •Colonel Vessery - Contemplative Commander (86) Juke (5) Advanced Sensors (10) Total: 197/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder I lost an Inquisitor to some hot dice and a well placed seismic bomb. My opponent’s two Delta Squadron Defenders were easy to wear down though. The Inquisitors can get a focus and target lock every turn and then stick to their target like a wart. Once they have the target lock, they start picking up focus and evade and become quite tanky. Anything of lower initiative is going get hanged up on real fast.

    YYYYY and AAAAA

    Advanced Optics A-Wings don’t really care. They tend to die when at R1 of other ships, and they can make their two dice attacks extremely consistent at R2-R3. (Unless you only ever roll Blank, Focus. Like me...) As long as they’re keeping guns on target, they’re going to survive longer at range.

    Scummy Swarms - no Quads

    You drive right up to a rock, though. Then take your obstructed shot and fly through it on the next turn.

    Only 1 of (almost) each upgrade ?

    That seems strange to me. My 2.0 collection was built primarily with conversion kits, and I probably have 20x copies of Proton Torpedoes. I figured they would pack a copy with both the X-Wing and Y-Wing expansions. Those are pretty iconic weapons for both of those ships.

    Give A-Wings look fun, and strong!

    He does, all the time. That link he posted is his battle reports with only 5 A-Wings. Poe doesn’t really figure in to the evaluation of the A-Wing chassis mathematically.
  7. That upsilon list might actually make Resistance Han’s ability relevant in the meta. Scavenged YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Han Solo - 112 •Han Solo - Jaded Smuggler (76) Trick Shot (2) •Rose Tico (9) •C-3PO (6) •Rey’s Millennium Falcon (5) •Rey (14) T-70 X-wing - •Poe Dameron - 83 •Poe Dameron - Trigger-Happy Flyboy (68) •Lone Wolf (5) R4 Astromech (2) •Black One (2) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) Ferrosphere Paint (6) Total: 195/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder Ideally Han deploys last, starting behind the Upsilons already. There is plenty of bid to work with if necessary. Poe should be able to Slam and Boost our of most arcs on turn one. His priority is to survive long enough to get behind them.

    Double-Tap Vennie

    Could put Squad Leader on Tali, or an In1 A-Wing. I really like PerCo paired with Rey, but it precludes the amazing Paige/Veteran Gunner double taps.

    Veteran Turret Gunner's time to shine

    I posted this one in my A-wing thread a few days ago. I haven’t gotten to fly it yet, but I’m excited to get a chance to. Use your A-Wings to jump ahead and block, then burn it all with the Y-Wings.

    Rebel Crack Heads

    I’ve been real interested in A-Wings and E-Wings since Monday. Rebels used to run 5x SnapCrack GSPs, and now 6x Phoenix Squadron Pilots with Crack Shot can fit. (Or 5x Cracks + 1x Intimidation) Dropping back to only 5x ships can get you some great value though. I’ve included Gavin in his E-Wings, so now all the A-Wings should be Cracking in to a crit. Combining him with 4x Crack PSPs leaves 10 points left over. I took those 10 points and upgraded one PSP to Jake. He flys at the same initiative value as Gavin, has an almost identical dial once you add R4 to Gavin, and provides Gavin with a focus.

    Legendary Rogues

    I flew that Gavin with 3x A-Wings the other day and he was awesome. The crits were really mean. I’d be interested to see what 3 E-Wings can do now.

    A-WINGS!!! - Post Points Change

    I got to play a couple games with my buddy tonight. I ran the following Gavin plus A-Wings list: E-wing - •Gavin Darklighter - 77 •Gavin Darklighter - Bold Wingman (61) Outmaneuver (6) Fire-Control System (2) R4 Astromech (2) Afterburners (6) RZ-1 A-wing - •Jake Farrell - 44 •Jake Farrell - Sage Instructor (36) Outmaneuver (6) Predator (2) RZ-1 A-wing - •Arvel Crynyd - 39 •Arvel Crynyd - Green Leader (34) Intimidation (3) Predator (2) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 40 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Outmaneuver (6) Predator (2) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder During the first game, he flew Dengar w/ R3, Lone Wolf, and Punishing One Bossk with Lando and stuff, and the tractoring Mining Guild TIE. I set Jake and Gavin together on one corner and the GSP and Arvel towards the other. This game was over pretty quickly when the A-Wings jinked Dengar in to a bad position and then Arvel blocked while they swarmed. At the same time Jake did a 5 straight with a boost to get from one side of the board to the other, and join in on the Dengar beat down. He was left at one hull. The next turn the GSP and Jake SLooped and got behind Dengar, taking him down. While all this was happening, Gavin got behind the party bus and started laying the crits on. He had Bossk to half health while still behind it when Dengar died, that’s when we called the game. I had a few take away from this game: 1) Predator is easy to line up on large bases. 2) The combination of Outmaneuver and Intimidation really allowed the A-Wings to put some damaged in quick. 3) A-Wings are at least better than the JumpMaster and YV-666. Second game was against Oicunn, Turr Phenirr and Echo. In the end it was just an untouched Echo finishing off the last A-Wing. I don’t remember all the specifics of this game, except that I beat on Oicunn for a lot longer than I wanted to. I should have focused on the small ships first. Oicunn with Death Troopers really messes with Arvel in particular and A-Wings in general.
  13. I always run Wedge with at least an R4, it only affects the 2 hards, but having that option after a Talon Roll or Focus -> Boost has been crucial in quite a few games. Personal preference I guess, but if I’ve got the points I take an R4.

Dutch will help out Ten Numb on the opening and gets those sweet double taps.

    A-WINGS!!! - Post Points Change

    I was cooking up a similar list and decided to upgrade two A-Wings instead of trim three. Lando should be able to help the A-Wings squire target locks for the concussion missiles. Use the concussion missiles more as three dice attack that interacts with Outmaneuver, instead of a super turn 1 alpha strike. RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 46 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Predator (2) Outmaneuver (6) Concussion Missiles (6) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 46 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Outmaneuver (6) Predator (2) Concussion Missiles (6) Modified YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Lando Calrissian - 108 •Lando Calrissian - General of the Alliance (80) Composure (1) •Leia Organa (2) •Nien Nunb (5) •Millennium Falcon (6) •Bistan (14) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder I was also looking at ways to integrate two super blockers in to a squad. I think this grey wall of death could be neat. Slow roll through with the Y-Wings, create predictable targets for blocks and proton bombs.
