    Parable reacted to Boom Owl in How To Fly Casual?   
    I keep hearing this term on podcasts and stuff...what does it mean? Does "fly casual" have something to do with acceptable list choices in a casual setting? Or is it just about being chill when it comes to agreements on bumps, range, little mistakes, throwing dice all over the board, friendly reminders, not complaining about dice, etc?
    Edit: Summary of Findings - Be Nice and Fly Whatever You Want
    The responses are all over the place as expected but based on the 3 pages of discussion so far I think I can now summarize the various opinions in GIF format. Seems "Fly Casual" and "Casual X-Wing" are easily confused. See if you can spot the difference below.

    Xzibit A: Here we see, Vader, clearly the superior player and list builder, being super chill about letting Old Man Obi do that sweet spin move....everyone knows spin moves were only good during Wave 1.

    Xzibit B: Here both Vader and Obi Wan are playing a casual game...because winning doesnt matter as much to them as just having fun. They will both do glorious boost barrel roll re positions for eternity without attacking at all. 

    Xzibit C: Here we see Darth Maul, being a super chill bro, and intentionally avoiding swinging at Obi Wan's head with his OP double sided lightsaber. So sportsmanship.

    Xzibit D: Here we see Kylo Ren didn't get the memo, that your supposed to be nice to new players like Finn. But its ok, Kylo's intentions are pure, he just wants his best friend Whisper to be able to play again.

    Xzibit E: Anger Fueled Rey using inexplicable game breaking action economy settles the score with Kylo by being even more competitive. 

    Xzibit F: And of course who can forget....Yoda reluctantly uses force errata on Palpatine since he is hopelessly competitive.

    Xzibit G: Here we see Yoda flying super casual against Dooku....he doesnt even use his obviously superior force powers since it just doesn't feel enough like Star Wars for some reason. 

    Xzibit H: This is a Porg. At home building a HOTAC kit for his kid Porgs. Porgs are rare and adorable natural born casual players. 

    Xzibit I: This is a PS10 Advanced Sensors Nym Rancor vs a PS9 Gamorrean. 

    Xzibit J: This is Jar Jar....he is just here to troll natties and make space ship noises. 

    Xzibit K: And finally....here we see what happens when Obi Wan gets tired of his casual eternal battle with Anakin and takes the much OP "higher" pilot skill ground.

    It's situational but throw Cloaking Device onto Zuvio. That'll help you get close enough to start wrecking stuff with the bomblets. Decloak is a great repositioning tool, also.

    The Bomber is a large base. But yea, while the Silencer probably wouldn't fit in the "medium" expansion, we should definately be upset about the $30 price point.

    Nym's ability to combine PS10 with Advanced Sensors, Barrel Roll, Engine Upgrade, Genius, Bomblets, and TLT/AB....directly caused the PS escalation.
    If FFG gave more thought to the implications of releasing this specifc PS8 ship combo we wouldnt be here. They generally have done a good job with this, although Rey at PS8 is a hard one to understand since her entite dial is already green and she has built in off/def rerolls.
    Other PS10 ships usually have sacrificed an EPT and limited themselves in important ways. Vader being the exception I can think of. That compromise is a really solid counter balance to the urge to putting VI on every Ace.
    But with Nym, PS10 means sacrficies nothing, you get to dictate the field and play single player for several rounds....unless your opponent brings Kylo or multiple PS11s. 
    Other EPTs are not really that relevant for Nym since TLT/AB are hyper efficent for dmg and Bomblet requires and receives no modification from EPTs.
    Nym's upgrade combos are Whisper levels dangerous and never should have been given a base PS higher than 7. Its why the Gunboat is capped at PS7 im sure of it. 
    Its why im scared of the new PS8 Kimogila with bullseye. PS10 will be auto include for that to to line up kill shots.
    PS7 is a big thing that keeps Whisper from out right owning the entire Meta. And as much as I enjoy flying Whisper its a good thing they werent dumb enough to make her an 8 like Nym.

    Parable reacted to Vineheart01 in Meta's Lookin' FINE!   
    its more the empire are just hardcore dedicated players than they have meta-defining lists. The majority of imperial players i see that actually win at all are insanely good at predicting movement distances, flight patterns, and taking calculated risks.
    Imps cannot be netlisted right now. They just cant. Their ships are too fragile to fly with a thought of "I got the best list ever imma win unless dice say otherwise!" because even if the dice ARE going our way we can still lose through poor positioning.
    Its funny. I'm literally the only regular imp player on our weekly gamenights, and at any local tourny theres maybe 3-4 others that show up from somewhere. Generally i get two responses when i show up with an imp list: 1) Yeah i love facing your imps its actually a challenge because you make me think hard! or 2) wtf are you playing THAT for? *points at Deathrain* lol.
    I rarely win a tournament, but it even less rarely has to deal with the list im facing just countered me without even trying. Generally its a misplay on my part (bad prediction which lead to a bump, didnt guess his next move even remotely right, etc etc). Nym doesnt scare me...Dengar doesnt scare me....Dash doesnt scare me...none of them scare me but GOD do they make me work for that victory since even the slightest mistake costs me the game 9/10 of the time.
    I play imps probably 80% of the time. If im not im probably doing some jank i came up with that i thought was hilarious (or running 4 Awings so i can run my 4 Arwings models)

    When you would go to final salvo, instead tear this card, grab your opponent by the collar, drag his face an inch away from yours and shout SATURATION SALVO! You then win the game.

    Likely it does indeed say Saturation Salvo.
    It seems to also mention squad(mate)?  So perhaps the jist is an ally ship with the same upgrade can add extra dice by discarding said upgrade.

    Have you flown it much? I've gotten in several games and found it to be quite decent - it flies very differently from other TLT carriers. I've found the named pilots' abilities to be highly situational, but that isn't a knock on either the frame, or it's cost.
     
    No, it isn't meta-defining. And I'm more than happy with that. It's one of the more balanced designs I can recall seeing in a while.

    Yep and I'd happily settle for a "decent" ship, but the named ones are overspecialized and the generics are prone to green dice failure - and 5 health won't cut it in today's meta - unless you bring 3-4 Aggressors.
    The barrel roll is great though!
