    Objectives Play - Banned and Modified cards ... ?

    That list looks good, and is really the intent behind all of them. Captured TIE is a good addition - it would be added now, but waiting on second edition rules to just cleanly update everything. Tobias beckett needs to be included as well, or things break in weird ways . But I don't think he has a first edition counterpart, right?

    Go to bed! Extremely important though - you need to be moving after miranda so you can double jam I think

    It's not tough to block (with zone speed). The strategy is generally to burn people out of special then forcing them to do blocks the hard way (which are always hard).

    basically we know the inquisitor is good, so I wanted to test if vermeil is good and not have him get carried by quiz, if that makes sense.

    I think I've said it multiple times so I don't mean to repeat, but vermeil is always jamming or evading, and with ISB slicers that means token stackers have no tokens, and alpha strikers don't get their alpha strike anymore either. It's really insane. Vermeil should absolutely be in the fray - shooting two agility/palp/evade is very frustrating, even with a turret, because he already came and took your tokens and always hits for 3/4.

    Two ships effectively get entirely passive mods out of it, it's entirely not obvious how much damage your list is going to do.

    Pretty important, I think, but more importantly autothrusters is a good card

    The point was that I was just KOing everyone in my bracket. Won the tournament, didn't win a single game on points lmao Nah, the busted characters this time around are the defense and power characters: Bowser/Jr, waluigi, chain chomp

    You'll want your ace shooting before Vermeil. This is what I was playing: Unnamed Squadron (100) Major Vermeil — TIE Reaper 26 Veteran Instincts 1 ISB Slicer 2 Director Krennic 5 Lightweight Frame 2 Advanced Ailerons 0 Ship Total: 36 Glaive Squadron Pilot — TIE Defender 34 Veteran Instincts 1 Multi-spectral Camouflage 1 TIE/x7 -2 Ship Total: 34 Scarif Base Pilot — TIE Reaper 22 Emperor Palpatine 8 Advanced Ailerons 0 Ship Total: 30 Btw the Palp reaper is even dumber than you'd think it is. No one's going to meaningfully get shots at it ever, except for like an engine ghost

    How does this make you feel They aren't going to KO themself. ALSO, actually on topic: Vermeil is absolutely ridiculous. I played Vermeil with VI, slicers, krennic and frame and it was legit one of the silliest things I've seen in Xwing. He's like the assassin of silly rebel defensive stacking.

    yep, though I think this is worth nothing: Three dice with no mods does 1.5 damage. Two dice with a focus does 1.5 damage. They'll do more or less the same amount of damage (Norra slightly more at range 1) and I don't think Evaan + ICT will be cheaper than Norra.

    that one actually took me a second Ah, I think that's where the disagreement comes in. Yes, I'd rather have naked norra than evaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaan with an Ion Cannot Turret.

    if evaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan (i like where this is going)'s ability didn't require spending a focus I'd agree, but now we're in a really weird niche situation where spending a focus defensively on yourself is more valuable than adding an evade every shot (or you can't get to range 1 which hasn't been the case from our trying out norra), or you completely don't care about modding your shot becuase you're just spamming bombs or whatever, which also seems like you'd rather just have Norra? I'm unconvinced that edge case actually exists, basically.
