    Let's look at the Rebel pricing model.
    Rebel ships are base priced to prevent you from taking a certain amount.  
    PS2 B-Wing is 41 so you can't take 5.  PS3 B-Wing with talent is 43, so PS skill and talent are each worth 1.  Ten is 46, so 2 points for PS and 3 for his ok ability.  Braylen is 47, so 4 for his amazing ability.
    PS2 and 3 X-Wing are the same.  PS1 X-Wings appear to pay 1 for illicit.  Edrio (45) pays 3 for his ability and 1 for an illicit.  Porkins (46) pays 2 for PS, 1 for his talent, and 2 for his meme ability.  Leevan (46) pays 2 for his ability, 1 for PS, 1 for talent, and 1 for illicit.  Garven (47) pays 1 for talent, 2 for PS, 3 for a decent ability.  Biggs (48) pays 1 for PS and a whopping 6 for his amazing ability.  Kullbee (48) pays 1 for illicit, 1 for talent, 2 for PS, and 3 for an ability I forgot existed.  Thane (48) pays 1 for talent, 3 for PS, and 3 for his gamebreakingest OP ability.  Wedge (52) pays 1 for talent, 4 for PS, and 6 for a statistically irrelevant but good feeling ability.  Luke (62) pays 3 for PS and 18 for 2 force, his amazing ability, and a force slot.  
    Extrapolating these obviously fair and correct points costs,
    Blackout = 51 so you can't take 4 + 4 PS + 1 talent + 6 a statistically irrelevant but good feeling ability (62)
    Quickdraw = 34 so you can't take 6 + 4 PS + 1 talent + 4 for a good ability (43)
    Midnight = 26 so you can't take 8 + 5 PS + 1 talent + 6 for a great ability (40)
    Clearly these are right and correct.

    I guess I’m saying I would pay more for afterburners on an academy than a black squadron, but even more for it on Vader. 
     
    Something like i0/1/2/3/4/5/6 costing 5/4/3/4/5/6/7 seems pretty close to playable at all levels?

    Have they really not done non-linear, non-multiplicative scales?  I suppose it does at least give people a chance to memorize costs.
    Within that restriction, I'd think something like 3/4/5/6/7/8/9 would work okay.  Relaxing that restriction, I'd probably go for something like 3/3/4/4/6/8/10.
    Your first sentence almost sounds like you're thinking that would be bad for the game, but I'd have no problem with seeing TIE/lns actually have a meaningful choice to take Afterburners.

    I would 100% take afterburners on academy pilots if it was initiative scaled. It is good at very low and high initiatives, so it would probably need a weird curve of cost and they have only done linear or slightly multiplicative costs so far.

    I wasn’t the only one?? 😄
    My 6(?) games between what I played at Adepticon Hyperspace and a local Hyper tourney, I didn’t have too much trouble closing with ~4 Vultures, so long as I did enough damage before I was that low. My two losing matchups were Rebel Beef and a Republic Swarm, but I also beat a Rebel Beef list fairly handily at Adepticon, and managed to beat a Boba+Guri+L337 list at the local tourney—and it was one of the better local players flying it. (Not saying he was flying at his best, but he’s not bad.)
     
    That said, I am going for Maul+5 this weekend for my first Hyperspace Trial. Not sure how much of it is because it feels stronger or just because it’s a bit different and I need a slight change of pace.

    I tried the eight vultures at adepticon hyperspace, just to see how it went. They have a very good opening salvo, but by the time I was down to about four everything just collapsed. They seem to need a critical mass or a wingman that can close or both.

    LLWWWW is so much less satisfying of a tournament experience than WWWWLL. The heartbreak of the latter can be painful, but the losses do tend to be the ones you beat yourself up about less. Or at least you beat yourself up for better reasons, anyway.

    Re: Grand Galactic Inquisitor v L’ulo:
     
    I would take L’ulo at the same point cost if force wasn’t a factor. Is two force points (and I guess a force slot over two talents) really worth ~18 points? The first is probably worth a solid 10 but you get diminishing returns. 
     
    I think everybody is already on board with L’ulo ticking up and Grand Inquisitor ticking down slightly, I don’t think that is controversial?

    Gsp is useful because they take whatever the mynocks said and talk about it at the level of the general community.
    Mynocks are good because they take whatever the krayts said and try to say it more politely.
    Krayts are awful because they (typically) say the right thing but in such an antagonistic manner that no one listens. 
    186th is great because instead of hot takes they release a nuanced discussion, it just comes out a month after everyone else is done talking about it.
