    pretty sure turrets are more polarizing than arcdodging.
    Arcdodging atleast requires some play knowledge and skill. Turrets are "dont fly into s*** and focus fire"
    Arcdodging can also be messed with by bumperships, turrets generally dont give a **** outside loss of actions. Stripping actions off an arcdodge usually kills it that round while turret users just get whacked hard but not dead.

    Is a buff to the PS11 version for sure, just pure action economy. Not sure that it is better than Sensor Cluster in a Palp list, but it will be a hades of a lot fun to fly, for sure. Clocking in at 37 points, it's a high PS Alternative to Expertise, and vs the Mirandas and Nyms of the world its probably better.

    Indeed. Lurking at range with autothrusters and 3 dice is pretty safe even with no evade token, and 4-dice, -1 (net) agility attacks are nasty as heck.
    It's a shame a tactical jammer can't obstruct your own shots...
    With lots of debris on the board, Trick Shot, Collision Detector and Primed Thrusters, combined with the Silencer's dial, the Imperials finally have a pretty reasonable answer to Dash Rendar on the 'trolling around in debris clouds' front.

    I always find it funny when people use Soontir as the example of what good arc-dodging looks like, and oh, why can’t we have him back in the game...
    Soontir was a piece of ****. You could block him or stress him which made him better than OG x7s, but it’s not like focus + focus + evade + autothrusters + stealth (+Palp) was fun to play against. It’s also not like there were a lot of times where I would call arc-dodging with him “impressive,” since you can waste two actions and still have focus Palp AT. Not saying he was ever the worst thing in the game, and he’s certainly not as bad as things like (old) Nym, but he ain’t exactly the snappy underdog.
     
    The Silencer is interesting. No evade sucks, but AdvS+PtL with that dial and Primed Thrusters really sucks for jousting lists. There’s not a whole ton of counterplay there.

    The guy running 4 wookies could not roll hits the whole day, I think after the first game he started keeping track, and by the end of game 5 he was up to 148 blanks (with commando rerolls).

    XG-1 Nu is 3 points cheaper than a Blue Squaddie
    XG-1 Rho is 2 points cheaper than a Dagger
    linked, LRS and potential crackshot make it sail far and away from anything the B-wing could ever dream of accomplishing.
    no, FCS is not a substitute for linked or LRS because it gives you an incredibly unreliable alpha strike. To put it very simply, 3 gunboats will reliably kill a Wookie gunship before it fires. B-wings will be lucky to even get it to half health

    lastly, the B-wing dial is piss. There's nothing easier to predict or block than a 2k (literally can't K past a large base), so I really don't rate it as being worth having red banks and no 3-turn

    Bonza reacted to Mackaywarrior in Intensity Poe: CommRelay or AdvancedOptics?   
    I think im going to use advanced optics as a means to seriously shed some points from Poe. If I can invest it in multiple ships then the shear number of end-gamers should take the heat off him. I’m thinking about this:
    Poe Dameron (31)
    Adaptability (0)
    BB-8 (2)
    Advanced Optics (2)
    Integrated Astromech (0)
    Black One (1)
    a 36 point, 9 PS who can fully utilize his pilot ability and strip multiple target locks off of allies is nothing to sneeze at.

    Bonza reacted to ficklegreendice in Ships with arc need to matter again...   
    no, you need RAC
    because RAC is a PS 10 turret, and therefore far and away the easiest way to use and abuse Kylo Ren's ability. You will simply never see Kylo crew on any other platform competitively.
    run with Quickdraw, there are no 80-arc-only ships in that list and the list itself is more than 50% turret
    it is very difficult to properly illustrate just how much easier it is to use a turret than any other kind of ship, but their ease of use has consistently reflected their competitive tip-top-viability for just about every wave since 5

    A better solution, to my mind, would be to cap PS at 9. It would rein in the abundance of PS10's currently possible and make native PS9 more valuable.

    Bonza got a reaction from Vontoothskie in Would you play an Imperial Firespray if it had one of these titles?   
    Yep - A free extra crewmember - though I would make it 4 points maximum - A free Ysanne Issard/Rebel Captive/Tail Gunner/Agent Kallus would go a long way to helping these ships out. 
    It would be amazing if the Imperial Firesprays could take a free Rebel or Scum crew as well, though I feel this might be a little too strong.

    The thing that woudl really sell it for me would be an extra crew slot.  Getting Palp for less than 50 points on a ship that has more than a single arc would make it worthwhile.

    Bonza got a reaction from SEApocalypse in Arc-dodger resurgence on the way?   
    You might not get a pure 3 arc dodging ship list to work, for various reasons as mentioned above. 
    But you might see Soontir, Inky or Carnor pop into a 3 ship list alongside a HLC/Missile Gunboat and an Expertise Quickdraw (for example) the Gunboat packs too big a punch to be ignored, allowing your ace to survive to the mid/late game where it’s really going to shine. 
    I’m sure we’ll see Fen Rau with PTL pop up as well - he’s a monster.

    HI guys,
    I was thinking about how much I love X-wing and I know its not perfect however it is the best table top game I think I have ever played, Settlers is a close 2nd but there are too many stories which revolve around it to tell. So in light of the excellent FAQ which was needed and solved a lot of card interactions, answered questions and provided a way for Rebels prior to K-wings get some balancing I personally would like to say thank you to  Frank, Alex, & Max along with the Kids at FFG that do this as a labor of love. Without you three I dont think we would have a solid game. There is a lot of room to grow and be excited, again thank you guys for paving a way and keep making the game better. I really love my Guns for Hire ships even if I never play with them. The Red Star Viper looks amazing, my three year old and wife both love it.

    From a fan and supporter :-)

    white segnors is just dumb, and there are no limiting factors as with the only other white "flip" maneuver dial in the game (the defender, which has red 1 + 2 turns and only forward greens; has to pay a point and mod slot to get more)

    People who bought Raiders for Palp got the same pat on the head and told it’s still useful. The health of the meta is of paramount concern. You can still use all of it in casual, it’s not worth throwing the ship away. You just can’t wreck face with it in tournaments. Pretty much suck it up and adapt is I believe the phrase I see Imp players told over and over. It was a needed change so more things can come back. You guys will be ok.

    Have been playing variations of this list all year, trying to get it right. IPM's are brutally effective in this low HP meta, and are a death sentence to Dash/Nym/Miranda. If Triple Jumps weren't so big in Europe I would take them on Inky as well, but as it stands I feel like I need the little extra damage provided by Prockets to keep up with the damage output of Jumps - still up in the air on this one. 
    Lots of fun, and has a chance against a lot of the current meta.

Sure, there are almost as many good ones, but it's always sad to see half my collection gathering dust while the other half is pushed through the same old combinations over and over again. Here are my proposed fixes to the EPTs of the game that have been shown to be lacklustre to date:
