    clanofwolves reacted to ScummyRebel in The Paradox Of FFG   
    I definitely feel for single faction players, or even just original trilogy only players.
    It’s a tough spot for ffg to be in: on one hand, they promise no out of faction buying. On the other, reprint sales aren’t what they hoped for as not as many new players have joined 2.0 as they thought might. So a lot of of us old timers don’t want to rebuy a ship for a generic upgrade, but we also want our new toys still. At the same time, there’s a long list of catch up for the other factions before they approach the original 3 in model counts.
    I don’t see how ffg can win really. Too frequent a card pack creates sku difficulty, too little and it’s the “hey why am I buying out of faction?” For me, I can’t buy out of faction if I have some of all, however in this case I’m only buying one of three seppies releases (Jango). I don’t really fly them much, and I will get way more value on tabletop with 2x Nimbus and 2x eta2 than I will one of each including droids.

    Actually yes. While the chassis has come down 36 points total since launch across all 4 pilots, which is a lot, other chassis have come down more or similar/same:
    YT-2400 is down 37 across 3 pilots
    Rebel YT-1300 has come down 49 points (4 pilots)
    Decimator is down 35 points (3 pilots)
    JM5K is down 49 points (4 pilots)
    Lancer 32 points (4 pilots)
    The lowly Starfortress is down 61 (6 pilots)
    Resistance YT-1300 is down 38 (4 pilots)
    Interestingly, all the above are large base ships. It seems that the devs were worried about the power of certain large base ships in 2e. 
    So while the E-Wing chassis is not the most cautiously priced chassis since launch, it is the small base ship with the highest points decrease so far.
    For reference, the Defender chassis has come down 20 so far across 5 pilots. I'm sure the four higher I pilots will see another point or two shaved off.

    Definitely the moment I won my first ever tournament game. My opponent was chasing my last Auzituck that was almost dead with his decently healthy Falcon. I kept dialing in moves he didn't expect, I guess, because he kept bumping me. Neither of us really noticed how close the board edge was. He was a bit pissed when he flew off. 😅

    Of course then I played against triple ion defenders (a ship I'd never witnessed on the table at the time) and died horribly to a 12 year old. But hey.

    Well, the 3D part is great, but not the real artistry as it is done by a computer, not by hand. Your art is what one sees and gives the reality of the item.

    Been a while since I posted anything X-wing related as my latest project involved Legion models.

    Unfortunately no. I did take such a photo but for some reason it turned out blurry as heck and I discovered it way after I had taken the photos and put away my equipment. And I don't have the ship available any longer, it has been packed in a box and is on its way to the commissioner.

    *Edit* No wait I actually do have one picture though it was taken during the middle of painting so it does not fully represent the final model.

    A local player has flown a loaded Whisper alongside a "fat" Rear Admiral Chiraneau to great effect for the last year or so... at least, until everything in the world ground to a screeching halt.  Specifically:
    Rear Admiral Chiraneau, Darth Vader, Minister Tua, Moff Jerjerrod, Shield Upgrade, Proximity Mines (114 points) Whisper, Juke, Fifth Brother, Passive Sensors, Stealth Device (84 points) You have no idea how many times Jerjerrod catches the opponent off guard, with that system phase boost.

    Shall do this to be sure.
    I like the strategy tip lands as well, even if greens so very easily leave me saddened, but the evade and force is solidly nice.

    @clanofwolves
    While stressed, you CAN use Stygian Array to cloak. Notice the distinction between “Action” vs “Token”. 
    Also, in addition to 5th Bro, check out Passive Sensors. 
    Strategy Tip: if you’re opponent read your mind and his whole force is staring you down after your decloak and move, consider just cloaking again for your action. 4 greens with an evade plus force can weather a nasty storm.

    Well, there's what happens if it fails.  If you don't fit (object, ship, board edge), that's it.  You're done.  You don't decloak this round.  You can't check some other direction.
    I guess this was already answered, in @emeraldbeacon 's comprehensive reply.

    clanofwolves reacted to emeraldbeacon in TIE/ph decloak question   
    Great questions!  To answer then one by one...
    You cannot normally decloak over or onto an obstacle.  The rules for decloaking specifically call for the ship to perform a boost or barrel roll, and THOSE rules dictate what happens if your attempted move would overlap or move through an obstacle.  In essence, you can try to fit, but if you don't, the reposition attempt fails, and you can't try another attempt.  That means, if you end up touching an obstacle, you have to stay cloaked for the round!  The exception to this involves the use of a Collision Detector, which allows movement onto and through obstacles. You can decloak off of an obstacle, conditionally.  Specifically, following the same rules for barrel rolling and boosting, as long as your template and final ship position do not overlap an obstacle, the move is legal. Decloaking does not trigger Snap Shot.  Since a decloak is, mechanically, a form of boosting or barrel rolling, it is not considered to be a maneuver.  That means abilities which check for ships performing maneuvers (Snap Shot, Foresight, etc) have no effect during a decloak. As far as other interactions to consider, the one thing that most stands out to me, is to remember that the TIE Phantom "Stygian Array" ability can be affected by stress.  If you start the round stressed, you can still decloak, but you will not be able to perform your "free" evade action at that time.  That can affect your actions for the remainder of the round, so consider carefully before committing to that decloak.  (As @JBFancourt pointed out below, you are still able to spend your evade token to gain a cloak token at the end of the round, regardless of whether or not you're stressed.) As far as squad building goes, Whisper (or any Phantom) loves having Fifth Brother on board, since Force charges are incredibly powerful & versatile on that platform.

    Yes; double agree.
    I'd even consider full 200...
    Optics on the other two could help them bridge the purple gap (that'd be 199, which is also fine, imo).

    To comment on the topic as a whole, on instinct only, I'd probably lean towards splitting the third Silencer into a couple Cadets. 
    That way, you could add punch to Kylo and keep Blackout as well. 
    Even Omega Aces with Proud Trad. could fill in very nicely. 
    That's just my rebel (or, Resistance, rather) opinion.

    Agreed, I never had a game with Barrage Rocket carriers that I thought, "I'm not in this no mater what I do... what the **** is happening?!?"
    Whereas many games with Force using, High Initiative opponents, I thought the above and simply wanted the game to end already.
