    bgrelle got a reaction from Otacon in Omega leader and no modify rule   
    Finn doesn't add a die to be rolled, he adds a blank result to the result pool, thus is considered a modification (yes, a useless one that  couldn't be rerolled if it was allowed, but still a modification that can't happen nonetheless).

    Sorry, had to fix that since he only only allows the red ones.

    This is my favorite Rey team.  Makes Rey hit even harder with Jan's added attack die and has a TLT wingmate to peck away for more damage.

    And to answer your last question, if another ship with M9-G8 has you target locked, then yes that ship can "force" you to re-roll one of the snap shot dice.  Since the source of the re-roll is not the ship using snap shot the "You can't modify" doesn't apply.

    Don't feel stupid, this exact question comes up all the time with new players in my area.  It's very easy to read Youngster's card and only see that others can use his equiped EPT, instead of the fact that what they are actually doing is using the Action provided by the EPT.

    Denis goes in spurts when it comes to developing this thing.  I haven't really done anything with it since my mother passed away in May.  I've just been spending more time with family.  Haven't been playing a lot of Xwing either but managed to squeeze time in to win an SC so I guess I'll be going to regionals.
    I will try to get in touch with Denis and see what his plans are.

    bgrelle got a reaction from BlodVargarna in Jan - Rey?   
    OK, so yea that was NASTY!  My first game had Fenn fire at Jan at range 1, ended up with two hits and two crits.  Jan rolled evade - blank.  So one hit canceled by die, first hit taken by shield, first crit is a "Direct Hit", so Chewbacca gets flipped, damage card discarded and shield added, then second crit goes to the shield.  THAT WAS CRAZY!!!  Rey shoots next at range 2 of Fenn, in arc, Jen adds a die roll all paint, "re-roll" the Finn blank into paint then expertise for 5 hits.  Fenn already had one damage and rolled two evades and a blank.  Dead Fenn!!!  That was GREAT!!!

    Basically just what jmswood said but one addition, from my experience in learning to play this game over the last year (well a little over but not much) is that the more you can play against people better than you the more you will learn.  If you are paying attention to everything your opponent does from rock placement to ship setup to how they fly what they have on the table.  You can learn a lot about what works and what doesn't.  I found that I would learn more in a 20 min loss than most other games.  Keep flying and keep trying you will get better and also don't be afraid to ask the better players for where you may have made mistakes during your game.  Unless they are rude they will probably be able to tell you one or two big places where you could have done something differently and possibly changed the game.

    Very nice!   Yeah, it's super fun when it works.  I ran Rey/Jan in one regional and one System Open, only faced parattani once but I dusted Fenn with two out of arc Jan boosted 5 die attacks which helped Concord Dawn not activate & used focus to combat Asajj ruining my expertise.   It's a fun sledge hammer!

    bgrelle got a reaction from Wiredin in Jan - Rey?   
    So I have had some success recently with a Rey - Poe list but I have decided that even though it completly wrecks some people.  The better players just have too easy a time against it.  SO I was trying to come up with a different wingman for Rey (since really she was always the big hitter in that list anyway) and then I remembered Jan and her ability.  So I put this - http://xwing-builder.co.uk/view/722415/jan-rey-tlt together.  With both of them at 8 I can easily have Jan fire first with TLT and strip focus tokens thanks to HotCop then have her add a die to Rey's shot giving her 6 die or 5 when outside of range 1.  Given how hard Rey hits on her own, I am thinking that extra die can be big.  Ideas for other 38 point (or less but I am not really that worried about an initiative bid) wingman?

    No.  The lock has already been used to fire the weapon and is no longer around to spend for rerolls.
