  1. A skilled player doesn’t need it every round. There’s the difference. If they want to or need to ensure something, then they can. If they want to block something with a torrent, they can ensure it gets blocked.
  2. Sense means you know where the enemy ship will be. As you rightly said it confirms what you thought. But what it also does in the hands of a skilled player, it tells them whether they need to barrel roll to block, or if they are fine where their blocker lands. All the while their generally 2 7b’s take up firing positions ready to unleash die on a token less ship. I don’t need to tell anyone how good relying on Green die makes you feel. you don’t even need to spend force if it’s range 1. Sense is too cheap and too powerful in a scaling ruler of player skill.
  3. Could be any force 2+ pilot.
  4. I think that, whilst interesting would create a “Hello There” riot. So many people on the high ground. Obi with sense and a couple of blocking Generic Torrents.... not fun at all.
  5. I have 2 in my collection, hoping I don’t more than that. But I get what you’re saying. I wasn’t thinking about 2.0 releases, only what I had to play with. I like HS, but I think that’s one of the things I don’t like about it.
  6. This brings up the question, with things being removed from current HS because it was too popular, TIE prototypes, Phantoms, Torrents etc. Why isn’t the Aggressor in HS? I am mainly an Acey style of player, but I have recently extended myself to ships I wouldn’t normally fly and I thought the Aggressor could be a good start point. But alas no.
  7. You're right, I was just playing around with points and FCS is gone. Tried the list on Fly Casual, I only ever focused with the Zeta, so is a waste of points. I put Fantaical on Muse because Between Muse and Holo I should be able to shift around the stress to not get Proud on my main hitters flipped. I found you could K Turn or Sloop at times where you wouldnt have normally and have double mods to boot. I dont think I will put anything on in FCS' place and keep the list at 193 points.
  8. This is what I’m looking at. 1st Draft New Squadron (30) "Muse" [TIE/fo Fighter] (2) Fanatical Points: 32 (54) "Holo" [TIE/ba Interceptor] (2) Proud Tradition (5) Pattern Analyzer Points: 61 (57) Major Vonreg [TIE/ba Interceptor] (2) Proud Tradition (5) Pattern Analyzer Points: 64 (32) Zeta Squadron Survivor [TIE/sf Fighter] (2) Fire-Control System (4) Advanced Optics Points: 38 Total points: 195
  9. Hey Everybody, I have been mainly doing Hyperspace lists atm so this is new to me... But I love the Silencer and am enjoying the /ba. Then I went to make an extended list, using Holo as the start point. For 61 points with the 2 upgrades, you essentially get PTL after doing Hard manoeuvres. With the added bonus of Holo handing off his stress to repeat again. Is it just 4K to Victory FO style? I guess I was after people’s thoughts and opinions on whether they had come across this recently and how they feel about it.
  10. Thanks Nerro, aren’t I a **** for screwing over a mate 😳 Looks like I have an apology to make 😳
  11. Hey Everybody, A good friend of mine is starting to play X Wing and wants to fly a droid swarm, crazy when there is the First Order with Silencers and Barons in the game right? I want to make sure I wasn’t screwing him over with TA 175, that a ship is considered destroyed at the end of that current initiative phase when it has enough damage cards to remove it, not when it has Immediately suffered enough damage cards to remove it. I would post the card here, but I’m on the train and trying to do it on a phone is a pain. Cheers all.
  12. It’s ok princess, it’s just a game. Shhh daddies here. As you said, this is a message board for FFG to gauge player opinion. My response to your opinion could be summed up as, if you don’t like it, quit b*tching about it and don’t play it. FFG are not going to change it. They will forever and always have a limited format for a change of pace. We get it, you don’t like it. No one cares. Move on until they change the available ships next update.
  13. I like Hyperspace, makes you think more than extended. You can't fall back on old faithful builds all the time. You can get meta spikes like Boba+1, but they are worked out how to beat them in quick time. FFG can have whatever tournament they like, it's their game, you don't have to be involved in the format if you don't like it.
  14. I wasn’t a fan of Holo because I used him in the wrong list. I have tried him in this list and it’s great. Well IMO. You are very consistently putting out damage New Squadron (54) "Holo" [TIE/ba Interceptor] (2) Proud Tradition Points: 56 (32) Zeta Squadron Survivor [TIE/sf Fighter] (4) Advanced Optics Points: 36 (32) Zeta Squadron Survivor [TIE/sf Fighter] (4) Advanced Optics Points: 36 (32) Zeta Squadron Survivor [TIE/sf Fighter] (4) Advanced Optics Points: 36 (32) Zeta Squadron Survivor [TIE/sf Fighter] (4) Advanced Optics Points: 36 Total points: 200
