  1. Instead of coloring the entire edge, I have three close vertical lines on my main rocks. That combined with how absurdly worn out they are makes it pretty obvious.
  2. I would have been bummed if it was the Ralph McQuarrie paint scheme. (Which is awesome and I love it, but I already have two of them.) Since I often run two Phoenix Squadron Blockers and I need two more A-wing dials, this actually works out perfectly. I like to run my pilots with models that match their card whenever possible. I am glad they didn’t resculpt it though, I’m not a fan of the bloated Rebels A-Wings. If they’d released the RotJ paint job and then given us two of these in a Hammerhead Corvette, I would have been happier. This is fine though.
  3. It’s funny you should mention this @Magnus Grendel, I flew the list in the post you referenced at a fun night. For some reason I chickened out and SUDDENLYed the transport instead of Poe, it was dumb. I iterated on it though, and came to a similar list as yours. (I know my list would be better with torps, but I’d wanted to try the Autoblasters.) T-70 X-wing - •Poe Dameron - 81 •Poe Dameron - Trigger-Happy Flyboy (68) Marksmanship (1) •BB-8 (8) •Black One (2) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) Autoblasters (2) Scavenged YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Han Solo - 119 •Han Solo - Jaded Smuggler (71) •Lone Wolf (5) •GA-97 (8) •Rose Tico (9) Engine Upgrade (7) •Rey’s Millennium Falcon (5) •Rey (14) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder The idea was to run Han around giggling and squealing, “Chase me, chase me!” Then SUDDENLY Poe! Anyway, I got a few games in with it, and these are my take always. Torps are certainly better on Poe. Han can melt like ice cream on a Florida sidewalk in July. Rose was useful, but didn’t feel 9 points useful. Would trade her for something that adds survivability. It was hilarious fun? Many moments of, “Wait, you’re deploying him where?” I never spent more than three charges on the SURPRISE Droid. Could maybe have real competitive legs with more experience.
  4. After flying two Supernatural Inquisitors and two Rho Squadron XG-1s to second place in a small store tourney yesterday, I wouldn’t particularly like those Force changes. Completely anecdotally and at a not at all high level of competition, I don’t have any problem fighting Jedi. I just wish the Rebellion had more force sensitive pilots.
  5. The only reason I haven’t yet is because I only have 3x A-Wings dials... That said I cooked up these two variations of YAAAA just today. RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 35 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Crack Shot (1) Predator (2) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 35 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Crack Shot (1) Predator (2) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 35 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Crack Shot (1) Predator (2) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 35 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Crack Shot (1) Predator (2) BTL-A4 Y-wing - •Norra Wexley - 60 •Norra Wexley - Gold Nine (41) Dorsal Turret (3) R4 Astromech (2) Proton Bombs (5) Delayed Fuses (1) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder -and- BTL-A4 Y-wing - Gold Squadron Veteran - 53 Gold Squadron Veteran - (33) Crack Shot (1) Dorsal Turret (3) R4 Astromech (2) Proton Bombs (5) Delayed Fuses (1) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) RZ-1 A-wing - •Arvel Crynyd - 39 •Arvel Crynyd - Green Leader (34) Intimidation (3) Predator (2) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 36 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Intimidation (3) Crack Shot (1) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 36 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Intimidation (3) Crack Shot (1) RZ-1 A-wing - Green Squadron Pilot - 36 Green Squadron Pilot - (32) Intimidation (3) Crack Shot (1) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder
  6. This is seems pretty relevant. Even if adding the CLT [eye] is modifying an eye result, they should still be able to modify that same result again. If a ship with Lone Wolf rerolled an [eye] in to an [eye] couldn’t it then spend an evade token and modify that same dice again? It’s only modifying one dice.
  7. I thought his text read, “You should equip the Rey gunner on this I6 Falcon.” I must have missed something.
  8. Use Airen Cracken with Cluster Missile instead? If you opponent allows you to get the bonus Cluster Missile, you can allow each A-Wing to take a target lock or reposition in to a bullseye.
  9. Can we talk about how Delayed Fuses allows Cat renewable devices in order to trigger her ability. Also, I’d like to bemoan there isn’t a Resistance/Generic probe device that she can benefit from. What I wouldn’t give to let her run DRK-1 Probe Droids!
  10. They are saying that you are interpreting it incorrectly. If there was an upgrade that said “you may perform a third additional attack per turn” it would be a card contradicting the base rules reference. As it is, the upgrades you’ve referenced only give you an opportunity to take a bonus attack, not the ability to ignore the rule of only one bonus attack per turn.
  11. I am forever trying to make RZ-1 A-Wings work, and I definitely main Rebels because of that. And because of (Spinning!) B-Wings. And because of X-Wings finally being good. And because of HWKs. I don’t think I’ve made a 2.0 list that doesn’t include at least one of those ships. I also dabble Empire, Scum, Resistance, and Republic. I traded my somewhat limited FO collection for two Mining Guild TIEs.
  12. That makes more sense. For some reason I thought you were trying to do the draft in person, in which case drafting upgrades would be tedious. My suggestion for quickbuilds was not intended for people to...😟🤢🤮...fly quickbuilds, but rather use the quickbuilds as a list of pilots and upgrades to build a list from. An alternative, instead of making every item on a quickbuild available at once, have players choose only one pilot or upgrade from the quickbuilds they’ve drafted.
  13. I don’t actually know how Hearthstone does drafts. So maybe you’re already saying this... Let players draft X amount of quickbuild cards. Players can pull from every faction during the draft, then they have to build 200pt tournament legal lists using only the upgrades (in identical quantities) listed on the quickbuild cards.
  14. I’ve built a list that uses infinite range coordinates and M9-G8 on to Han for a few turns, then SUDDENLY POE appears from no where! Scavenged YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Han Solo - 84 •Han Solo - Jaded Smuggler (71) •GA-97 (8) •Rey’s Millennium Falcon (5) T-70 X-wing - •Poe Dameron - 71 •Poe Dameron - Trigger-Happy Flyboy (68) Heroic (1) R4 Astromech (2) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) Resistance Transport - Logistics Division Pilot - 45 Logistics Division Pilot - (32) •C-3PO (6) •M9-G8 (7) Total: 200/200 Could replace GA-97 with the other useless Calculate stamp droid for 2 free points. It’s gives Poe Black One, but no more suddenly Poe.
