    Even though it's a one-shot, I really love Lightning Reflexes when I use the gunboat. Timing it right is key, but it really helps to turn around when you need to.

    I find it interesting that people equate long term players quitting the game with 'the game is bad or unhealthy'.
    People move from hobby to hobby and game to game all the time. That someone has played x-wing for 5 years, and is now moving to something else could be as much to do with their own mentality and approach to hobby play as with the game itself.  Trying to intellectualise why you are moving to a new game is fine, but then imposing your biased view on the community serves to dissuade new people from getting in to the game that you used to love.
    Conflating declining numbers at x-wing night with a perceived reduction in quality of the product, when you attend x-wing night and spend the time complaining about the game is just weird.  
    It's nearly as weird as the mynocks complaining about the state of the meta while reinforcing and promoting the lists that meta is comprised of. ('Raptor attack is bad for the game and broken as all **** ... hey lets all fly it at the next big tournament, and all make top 16.... now lets podcast complaining that 8 of the top 16 were the same list!') If you want to change your local meta, or your regional meta and so improve the play experience for new and old players, as a community, you must actively take steps to play things that subvert the so called 'power lists' rather than just jumping on the latest bandwagon and yelling how broken it is while rolling around in your swag brag of acrylics.

    We've had the 2 biggest regionals ever, Worlds has to use a lottery because so many people want to go, the Mouse is putting out yearly movies that give us new ships, and I don't know about your area but we've had a half dozen new or returning players in the last couple months.
    So please, do not encourage the ones who say it's dying by responding to their clickbait threads. We don't need that kind of toxic crap around here and if we ignore it maybe it'll go away. 
    Now then, since we've established that Xwing has a future, what would you like to see in said future? Me, I would love to see Republic and Separtist factions added to the game. 
    tl:dr Don't encourage clickbait and tell me your vision of Xwing's future.

    Green Doo reacted to kris40k in The Upsilon Shuttle.   
    The list I ran (4-2) at the CAC this weekend was:
    Starkiller Base Pilot (30)
    Collision Detector (0)
    Emperor Palpatine (8)
    Darth Vader (29)
    Veteran Instincts (1)
    Advanced Targeting Computer (1)
    TIE/x1 (0)
    The Inquisitor (25)
    Push the Limit (3)
    Autothrusters (2)
    TIE/v1 (1)
    Total: 100
     
    I have to sacrifice EU from Vader for the Upsilon-class (as well as a missile/bid), which hurts but have decided that its worth it for a few reasons.  I use coordinate to allow Vader to change TL when setting up a K-Turn, or Evade, Focus, and Target Lock on approach, or to barrel roll to avoid obstacles or a potential block. There is also the trick where if you have an unstressed Inquisitor, you can dial a green straight (like 3 or 4) coordinate a boost to turn direction, PtL a Focus, then reveal and move and clear stress, then Target Lock + Evade with you standard action and end the round with 4 actions taken and no stress without being limited to his typical 1-speed maneuvers.
    Now, some might say that "you are giving up your shuttles action" which is correct, however I find that the innate +1 primary attack of the Upsilon-class over a Lambda-class makes almost up for "giving up" a Focus action on offense (see Expose v. Focus discussions) without being able to be bumped away. The increased defense of the Upsilon over the Lambda (+1 shield, +1 hull) also allows it to stay around longer, taking generally another attack to remove. There have been plenty of instances where a 1 or 2 health shuttle got out of the initial scrap to continue passing Palp and coordinate actions from behind the enemy for another turn or two.
    The value of white 2-hard turns and 3-banks cannot be overstated. 3-banks allow the shuttle to crash into the enemy setting up bump-fests for Vader and Inquisitor to exploit, then jump over everyone to get out. The 2-turns allow it to actually get turned back around quickly and stress free so it can continue to pass actions via Coordinate. Also, many times I have 3 forwarded or banked in, grabbed a TL, and missing the block, set up a 5 die + TL + Palp attack that just rips apart someone. I distinctly remember putting 4 points after his defense roll on a QD in one shot during the tournament, which can be very disheartening for a QD pilot. Also, the occasional 1-hard turn has caught enemies unaware having them eat a 5 die attack in the rear.
    While I think Capt. Yorr is an awesome pilot in the Lambda and people do great things with him, I don't quite think that people give the Upsilon the credit its due.

    Our wargame club has switched from X Wing to Armada. The number of players is smaller but Armada seems to have the greater longevity.
    X Wing was killed at our club by the dominance of obscure ships, the complexity and length of the FAQ and the fact that uber card combos are more important than flying.
    For me X Wing was a nice change from historical games. I never had the time, interest or inclination to find out who the non movie characters were and found it disappointing that they appeared to be so much better than Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader et al. Some games bear no resemblance to the Star Wars films at all these days, you could be playing any generic space combat game.
