    I’m only running the title, and Treacherous currently I’m trying to play the odds with initiative and probability of the sum of all parts Nantex ability, Gravitic Deflection etc.; The synergy between the ships with repositioning and rerolls, especially those green dice is amazing. (3-0 in limited table play)

    Play two games tonight won both as both went to time.
    Game 1: Lost Chertek, and Grievous was halved.
    I used Grievous as a flanker/mini brawler while Chertek and Sun Fac both tried to maneuver into position. 
    Game 2: Chertek, Grievous and Sun Fac were all halved. I won this game by 1 point. The last round Sun Fac was able to get to range 1 and rolled 2 critical hits, focus, focus blank to not only get enough points to win but completely one shot a CLT Obi-Wan.
    1. Chertek rerolls are no joke, having Sun Fac is fun with Ensnare.
    2. I made sure I tandem my opponents ships with the Nantex. Tractoring them into the same arc a couple times. 
    3. Neither of my opponents cared about Grievous until Grievous both games removed the first ship, imprevium plating was the MVP. I think this will change next league night. 
    4. At 83 points Sun Fac is okay, he’s fragile but extremely fun to fly. I had more fun flying the Nantex then my normal Delta lists. 
    More gameplay with this list for sure, I definitely need to get better flying it.

    Cgriffith reacted to DR4CO in Nantex: Fun and frustrating.   
    Let's see, the ship has a Tractor effect (already not widely liked) which can't be stopped (as PTA is not "fully" execute, and Ensnare is not an action), which means that your opponent literally has more agency over where your ships end up than you do, and gets to hit you harder while he's at it because of the -1 agility. Oh, and 2 of them get to hit you even harder on top of that with their pilot abilities.
    So, yeah, I'm pretty sure it's frustrating because it's a steaming pile of NPE trash and possibly the most broken ship the game has seen since Tragic Genius Nym.
    But that's just me.

    Personally, Title > Outmaneuver by a Parsec.  Crack Shot is enough for Grievous as a Talent, even if Outmaneuver aligns well.
    Treacherous makes sense, though.  If you're able to have obstructed shots, it's incredibly potent for the cost.  Tractors can help that happen.  I've never gotten anything out of Treacherous in the few games I've played with it, but it's the kind of thing I can see working in some lists more than others, since it's a very geometrically-based talent, rather than a probability-based one.

    Both times off my opponents ships. In one round which Sun Fac gained range 1 against (Delta - Anakin) needless to say it was a very, unhappy dead Anakin at the end.
    After now running it 3 times, I’ll be running Treacherous all the time, with a tractor squad the reposition ability to force opponents shots into positions that benefit all your ships is easier to accomplish. I cannot stress enough how much having the initiative helped. 
    It forced the Deltas in both matchups to use extra force, try to outguess my Nantex and try to stay away from positions that either put them into bullseye arcs or  compromising close to the asteroids that were on the map. Gravetic Deflection is worth the points rerolls game green dice is so good.

    In all honest, if I ran  this squad, I'd be taking Treacherous anyway; I'm not convinced of the value of Outmanoeuvre in a squad with tractor tokens a-go-go which should already therefore be firing on ships with reduced agility (it's the same reason I'd take Predator not Crack Shot if I wanted a bullseye-arc talent in an Ensnare swarm).
    I'd therefore end up with a better initiative bid more by default than out of any desire.
    Also, as an aside; don't underestimate how hard a Gravetic Deflection Nantex can be to swat when it has a wingbug. Two rerolled green dice with a focus token is surprisingly tough (or three dice with one reroll if Chertek isn't confident enough to tractor himself), and that fourth hit point means it's almost impossible to one-shot them, even with big guns.

    I’m thinking if you decide (anyone list building) to fly Anakin in the BTL-B, the stapled pilot is Plo Koon. Oh you need to reload? Cool gain the disarm, I’ll remove it so you can unloaded those Torpedoes immediately. (44) points and I5. I have a list I’m working on with Plo & Ashoka as wing mates.

    That’s exactly how I want to fly him. As the decoy or lost ship where he is ignored thus allowing him to react to the other players actions towards the 2 Nantex or Grievous.
    Go after Grevious, and let the 2 Nantex flank/attack 
    or 
    Go after the two Nantex, let Grievous flank.

    Great analysis. Thank you for the suggestions. I’ll definitely look into all those suggestions. I never considered those changes initially I was purely looking at the initiative for the Nantex in that regards. And the pilot ability is better and more useful for Chertek, and saving points.
    As for Grievous any way I can build him better, the more effectively the list may become. Thank you for the response 
    This does look more flexible. Add has a decent bid

    I'd seriously consider Chertek instead of Berwer Kret. Yes, Initiative 5 versus Initiative 4, but you're already having to learn to fly an Initiative 4 'ace' if you field Grievous. Chertek is the same initiative as him, which means you can chop and change activation and engagement order if it's valuable to do so.
    More to the point, you save 7 points with the same loadout, and Chertek has a pilot ability which actually matters - if you successfully ensnare a target, he gets offensive rerolls a-go-go, which a Nantex normally struggles for.
    That saves enough points to shell out for an elite upgrade for Grievous if you want. Since he's the 'tough' one, despite his ability he's quite likely to be the one 'going up the centre' - Treacherous might be a nice option as it can make it hard for an enemy squad to concentrate fire on you - but you also have enough points for Outmanoeuvre instead. That said, if either of the Nantex succeed in tractoring a target it's already at -1 defence die; against agility 1 targets Outmanoeuvre will therefore do nothing and even against better agility you get rapidly diminishing returns. Treacherous is nice and cheap and still leaves you an increased bid to support Sun Fac (or to support Chertek and Grievous against enemy Initiative 4 pilots).

    A “one-offs” card pack would be a ton of fun. Cards that don’t really necessitate a full ship release, but would add some nice flavor and call attention to nifty little moments in canon.
