  1. Hi, I am frequent flyer with Poe + BB-8 + Black One + Pattern Analyzer + Heroic. I did this yesterday: 1) Reveal blue maneuver - trigger BB-8 - trigger Poe 2) Make the maneuver (remove stress from triggered Poe) 3) As an action I Slam Talon Roll using Black One so ended up with Stress and Ion Of course, if you didn't trigger Poe in step one, you can trigger him in step three but you end with 2 Stress and Ion because of Pattern Analyzer. Also if you would Slammed non-red maneuver and triggered Poe after that, you end up with one stress and Ion. Hope it helps.
  2. I would also add one little piece of advice. Focus on the ships you can kill outright. I have lost a joust today I should have totally win because I picked the wrong target. Go for the squishiest one or the closest one to your guns. The quick loss of ship can put your enemy under pressure and it’s one less ship you need to worry about in late game. I screwed up wonderfuly tonight.
  3. I will also state my feelings about killing off the game. I have expected that a lot sooner. That's why I avoided the game for some time. The idea of license, dice and booster pack cheaper then the one of Magic was obviously not very profitable. I got in the game after all. I have bought the Rey/Finn starter pack and added some more cards. My wife went for Han/Chewie deck and we play casually quite often. I got my brother, his wife and some other friends in the game. Tommorow we have a game, actually. The support is over. I suppose we will still play casually until it will cease to be fun. It will be second discontinued Star Wars card game I maintain a deck for. I have played WotC SW CCG. It was a lot better, by the way. One thing I can't really understand. There are angry players who claims FFG doesn't communicate. I understand you are angry for different reasons. FFG communicated very well. They have announced that they are closing the game 3 months in advance. They will give you closure with Covert Missions and everything is on their website including rules and holocrons. You can still buy the products until sold-out. That doesn't sound like a big deal but remember there are other big companies in gaming industry, which set the standard for communication very low. For example, I have once had hard time getting money for one certain game. When I finally got the money and wanted to order, not only that the product was gone. The website was disconnected and only through hard googling, I have found out that Games Workshop decided to cut off Specialist Games and Warhammer History. No communication whatsoever. Just the website goes 404ed. FFG is very kind in their communication (also, want their money).
  4. I put way too much upgrades on my Aces but otherwise I like none or few.
  5. Does anyone know why is Leia I:5 pilot? I saw all the movies and never seen her flying the ship. Now, all of the sudden she is as good as Luke Skywalker, Corran Horn, Lando Calrissian?
  6. Yes, that's pretty much what I said :-D
  7. Unfortunatelly I must agree. It is good trade-off. But I disagree with your other statement. If I want to play Resistence Transport in union with Resistence Bomber and T-70 X-Wing for example, I need to have jam tokens, strain tokens, force tokens (probably), reinforce tokens... just for the case. I can't leave them home. And if the answer is "don't play list like that" then it's not an answer. These are valid game mechanics and playstyles. Can't avoid it if you wan't to play it. It's just huge pain in the donkey. But necessary, I know I contradict myself. :-(
  8. The friggin huge amount of tokens is the only thing I don't like on this game.

    Shoot! The fireball model is neat! I only saw few episodes but I'm gonna need this one!
  10. I’d point out the fact that you can go with PDF/printout. Our gaming spot is in underground without internet access so I occationally use the printouts to bash lists together.
  11. Considering the Sith Code, he is more Sith then any other in the Saga. ;-)
  12. X-Wing now is not good for me because: -most of my friends refused to convert from 1.0 and rather stopped playing -our local competetive community plays in the same day of the week as we have gaming nights of other games with my group -when I will buy two more Conversion Kits to fly all 9 of my T-70 X-Wings, I will have 9 dials for Bomber and Falcon of which I only have 1 X-Wing now is awesome because: -the segregation of factions mean I can fight pure First Order with my Resistance. -I will get Resistance ship card for my Rebel Transport. -I see a lot of Star Wars movie characters and ships on the tables
  13. Dude, you get it wrong. I don’t play her Rebels, she does that herself. I just buy her ships, Conversion kits and so on so she never finds out how much it costs!!!
  14. Exactly. I like the aesthetic and background of Separatist ships but don’t really play often enough to justify buying into another faction. Especially when I also buy Rebels for my wife.
