    I think I got all the y-wing lists at Aldershot, there might have been one more. There were 3 5A lists, none made the cut.

    Filled in what I can for now: https://listfortress.com/tournaments/465 Tom had Resistance 5s but I don't know the exact build.

    FFG is shipping Wave 3

    You could try out the squad from the FFG wave 3 demo stream.

    I don't think lists were gathered, but I can get at least some of the results up later.

    There were also several Vennies at the other UK Hyperspace. One made top 4 and another was 9th in swiss.

    It seems like it could work on I3 Inquisitors. Supernatural inquisitors could boost/BR, link focus, clear stress and get a lock.

    I5 ships need to go up in cost across the board. There's little downside to taking them.

    Looking forward to this. Hopefully it will give us a rough idea of some points.

    This, a million times. When players talk about the direction of the game it seems driven by whatever makes them seem like better players.

    Second edition and the split into Hyperspace and Extended has done more damage to the community than people are willing to accept, and dismissing others concerns over the format you prefer for whatever reason is deeply unhelpful.

    Of course, but it feels (to me) like they are more sensitive to this than other factions. They are versatile and can field a lot of archetypes, but other factions do those archetypes more easily. As a result I think they are both best placed to adapt to the meta (and have the biggest need to) so it will take longer for particular FO lists to see consistent use. This isn't a bad thing and I think they are the most interesting faction by far.

    What are people running on Ello?

    Nien is likely better, but once you kit him out he's more expensive. I think Ello works best a cheap T-70 ace, so keep him lean unless he's in a triple T-70 list.

    I should have reloaded the page before posting, but yeah. It's tankier than 3A+Poe, but likely weaker in most other ways.

    The Hux stress is a big deal on the SFs, since it stops them turning easily or overshooting enemy ships. There are viable Upsilon + 3 ship lists (e.g. 8th in swiss at Toronto) but at that point it's a very different list from the 5 SFs. If you drop to 3 optics SFs you can get Kylo, which seems good? It might just be a worse Poe + 3As. It's hard to tell with the First Order - they have a lot of list building flexibility but until other parts of the meta stabilise more it's tough to build squads that don't struggle with something else in principle.
