  1. Kavil. He doesn't care as much about stress clears it much easier and needs the mod more.
  2. This looks pretty slick. It's got the health the arcs and gets around the 2 primary so well I think this is pretty lethal against arc dodgers.
  3. Sloane is great for many reasons. Under costed a bit maybe but not busted. Sloane's effectiveness increases the cheaper the support. She's also better against aces than generics who don't care near as much about one lost action. And then there's the mini game of hunting the carrier and target priority. For these reasons I like the card and find it interesting and challenging. If anything I could see it being restricted from the phantom. Beyond that it's fine IMO.
  4. Fair enough I've been wanting to try dengar myself. I like your change for EH. I think palob is fine with evade option over the one use L7.
  5. Ya exactly. I haven't flown the ship but why not? There's plenty of opportunities. Scorches ability or just a k turn or hitting debris to trigger it. Seems pretty easy to take advantage of no? Hmm scorch in particular would be fantastic. Boost or BR during engagement phase. Just a thought..
  6. Compared to what? The 2 dice primary is being overlooked here I think. Mobile or not it's 2 dice. I'm not talking about moldy crow. Just the base ship. Non moldy hwks aren't good. Not compared to bombers or ties or really anything else around 28-34 pt range. I wish they were but I've tried a bare spice runner. It sucked. That's the problem.. hwks are only good with title or maaybe certain pilots bare.
  7. How attached are you to dengar? I'd probably drop him and L7 for EH and then lando on palob.
  8. On the bright side scum has more non-5 initiative pilots seeing play than the other factions. It seems nearly every other ship is init 5-6 besides palob, 4-lom, gunrunners and pirates.
  9. Thanisson looks really fun. The ability to basically double coordinate if a friendly gets stressed seems pretty handy. Tavson otoh seems to be less useful once I started considering he will will be stressed pretty often so unable to use his pilot ability during these times.
  10. @Icelom Does that include barrage rockets too?
  11. Hmm that's a valid point. And I adore boost on boba so maybe he's worth testing in list that supports fat boba.. like with fat guri. I do think maul is worse than ig 88 against Vader which around here is in nearly every single imp list.. including mine lol.
  12. Right now Maul is like a worse version of han gunner for 9 pts more.
  13. Not to mention starting with lower initiative pilots is a good thing too.
  14. Its too bad jabba doesn't quite fit right in triple YVs. He's like scum leia. Only sexier.
  15. The first thing that stands out is kath, her ability won't proc.. at all. Non-imited means not a named pilot so I'd consider a different pilot here- koshka, krassis, emon, just depending what your wanting to do. Other than that it looks functional, I say take it for a spin and test some things. In 2.0 2 ships is generally considered not as good as before since the ship count has gone up by approx 1 this edition. But the firespray chassis is stronger now and medium base with inherent boost which is amazing. I assume you don't have han gunner but thats ok. I'd consider mines somewhere over shields personally though. I've missed inertial dampeners on fett myself but I keep forgetting they've added the cost of a shield to the card this edition which deters me from taking it now. But still try it out and let us know. Lastly I'm not sold on elusive. Theres much better things to be doing particularly for fett.. trick shot, debris gambit, lone wolf would all be better IMO.
  16. Probably not entirely fair but your looking at it as the enemy has a token. If so then both steal one. Palob uses em vader doesn't. However if the target doesn't have one, for whatever reason, then palobs ability just doesn't proc while vaders becomes auto damage. Theres also the inherent flexibility of crew vs a named pilot. I wouldn't be opposed to palob getting an increase but I'd like to also see something to make other hwks worth considering, without moldy.
  17. I could see the gunrunner needing an increase. But the other two I hope not. Sloane in particular I find very interesting to play.. both with and against. If anything I think sloane increases the depth of the game by quite a stretch.
  18. I've flown the deci exactly once and it was pretty fun. Heres one of the fat lists I was brewing with. Its been awhile since I brewed this but iirc the general idea was to bait with echo down one flank and run the deci down the other pincer style. RAC does reinforce as default. Pilot ability + LW to modify reds. Grand Inq for flexibility.. to adjust turret/focus or TL with TL initially to turn on protorps for 3 arc vader and mines from the rear. If the deci wasn't so **** expensive the phantom would be rex instead. Rear Admiral Chiraneau — VT-49 Decimator 88 Lone Wolf 4 Proton Torpedoes 9 Darth Vader 14 Grand Inquisitor 16 Proximity Mines 6 “Echo” — TIE/ph Phantom 50 Juke 4 Fire-Control System 3 Director Krennic 5 Total- 199 Anyway I quit on echo which should maybe have a different loadout. And its just never climbed high enough on my list of stuff to fly yet.
  19. Mux doesn't slot into lists as easily as scum vader... I mean palob.
  20. Pretty much agree. I've seen the deci do decent against low ship count squads and I've had a lot of fun with captain O packing sloane vader + 4 ties. But if it runs into anything more than 3 primary-3 attack ships its going down pretty hard. And in this edition thats the floor of expectation. I mean I like the idea of a fat RAC and I have a build I've yet to fly that is similar to the OPs but with mines and a different wingman. In theory it has dice mods for days and 3 arcs.. but its still just a single attack ship and gets burned down too quick when caught in a crossfire.
  21. Well he did say directly behind him. Anyway I thought it funny.. but maybe no one watches top gun anymore?
  22. Unless your ace doesn't have a 1 straight and they do.. then it's top gun time.
