  1. I was beaten to a pulp by a tie swarm while flying Rebel Beef, I strongly recommend caution in believing your new gospel.
  2. Hello internet, Since my Hyperspace Trial season is done until August and I have no need to play hyperspace lists until the points drop, I've decided to try and bring Miranda Doni back! Here's what I've got so far, it evolved from an earlier Miranda Hera list I was flying, I figured an extra ship would be greatly beneficial. I've left it with a little bid for now because I'm expecting Wedge to go up in points slightly. If you guys have any Miranda lists you're flying, feel feel to share it below, I'm always looking for inspiration. Thanks!
  3. I play in Charlotte NC, and the game is going fine. We have three game stores where players go to mostly, the south side of Charlotte pulls in big crowds on their night, 8-10 players on average. The north side is split between two stores, which I believes hurt both stores as they're on the same night. I choose whichever store has the most people going and go there, which has been PBKW for the past couple of weeks. In the entire north side of Charlotte, there's a consistent 12-14 players between both stores, which is about where we were before 2.0 released. We've lost some older players, but we've replaced them with new players for the most part. In conclusion, X-wing in Charlotte is fine.
  4. My friend won a hyperspace Trial running Rebel Beef without a U-wing with Leia. So my answer is some of us have already been flying Beef without Leia, so yes.
  5. Let's see how these upgrades points and how they actually work on the table before we decry them. Leia crew could very easily push towards 20 points, angled deflectors look like a very niche upgrade that a few ships can use well, but most won't need the upgrade, or there are better modification upgrades for that ship.
  6. We should fly what we want regardless of whether we made it or found it on list juggler. If everybody is having fun, who cares? If your enjoyment of this game is diminished because of netlisting this may not be the game for you.

  10. I can promise that we are cleaning up our act, we had a team meeting about the direction we want to take Hornet Squad Radio tonight! Thanks for listening, and I hope that you'll continue to listen in the future!
  11. Hey guy! That was most likely Hornet Squadron Radio you were listening, aka my podcast! We truly aren't trying to offend anybody, our goal as a podcast was to be relaxed, entertaining, and informative. If we're emulating anything, I'd guess we'd be close to a late night talk show. I appreciate this generalized feedback, and will work to include some of it into future episodes!

  15. At no point during the entire event did I wish I had spent my 29 points elsewhere. With the new FAQ changes, I fully believe that Biggs was given an indirect and unintentional buff. Sure, he doesn't have to shoulder every attack now, but that's also great for him. The new FAQ makes your opponent decide if they want to focus fire onto Biggs, or split their fire apart onto two different ships. It's very hard to not shoot at Biggs. In my mind, he is still totally worth flying.
