    PTL or Rage on Quickdraw

    I'd go with rage, it's cheaper. Yeah it bring menueverability down but if you comiting to the baffle it's deadly double taps all re-rolled with a focus makes for heavy round of fire. Just make sure you position Q-Draw properly. PTL is more long game Quickdrae so it does depend on how you fly him.

    Anyone else feel like FFG is tired of X-Wing already?

    Lol how much time did you spend writing that... btw I didn't even read it
  4. I'm new to this game and need some help finding a place to find card lists for each expansion. Is there a site that you all use? Thanks!

    Backdraft doubletap

    Yup! I'd play it like this, it's how it was meant. If I were in a tournament I would fight you on it all day! Casual play I'd let it happen cause that's just cool!

    Striker Rules

    If this question has already been posted sorry for missing it. If a striker does it's pre boost and bumps it can still do its movement. Can it preform and action though? My initial thought is "yes" but has this been officially clarified

    STAR WARS: REBELS Discussion Thread!

    Another terrible consistency error generated by the fact Lucas presumably didn't bother to watch his own OT one more time before deciding to have Obi Wan oversee the delivery of the Skywalker twins at the end of RotS. The most logical implication of 'Force Ghost' Obi Wan and Yoda's brief exchange on Dagobah in TESB (Obi Wan's "That boy is our last hope," followed by Yoda's "No! There is another!") is that Obi Wan didn't even know about Leia's existence up to that point. In short, to have 'fitted' with the Dagobah exchange that's supposed to happen twenty-something-years later, in the last scene of RotS Yoda *should* have handed over *one* potentially force-sensitive twin (Luke) into Obi Wan's care, without even telling him that there was another potentially force-sensitive twin (Leia) in Bail Organa's care. Having Yoda keep the twins and their guardians tightly 'compartmentalised' in this way would have been logical as a storyline, because it would have minimised the danger to one pair if the other was compromised, just as in our modern world terrorist groups have learned to limit each cell's knowledge of other cells within their movements, to minimise the damage done by the security forces' penetration of one cell. To say otherwise is surely to infer (illogically) that Obi Wan was: (a) extraordinarily absent-minded, in having forgotten about Leia; or (b) extraordinarily sexist, in totally discounting Leia's Force potential because of her sex! Whatever happens with Kanan and Ezra in 'Rebels' henceforth should not be allowed to further undermine the credibility of that important Dagobah exchange. It might be suggested that, even if Yoda and Obi Wan knew about Ezra and Kanan's existence, they would have discounted them from consideration because they would not consider either of them anywhere near powerful enough to challenge Vader successfully. It is most likely that Old Ben remembered there was two but just hadn't heard anything about the other twin until Yoda said there is another essentially updating him that the other twin is still alive. If you notice in the scene Old Ben isn't super surprised when Yoda says there is another. This is easily explained. No sexism no forgetfulness.

    CC (PeteH) work thread

    I'm going to get some made, and once I do, and know the process, I'll go about figuring out how to get them out. I can't sell them or recoup costs in any way, so it just takes some planning, as I'm a student on a budget I"m wondering if there's a way for a bunch of us that follow you and love your work to send you a donation to be able to get them printed seeing as your a student on a budget. If there's a way to do that without it counting as you selling them I would be willing to do that, it's sounds like some others here would be too!
  9. Man if I had the force I'd use it to not get hit by some crazy powerful space lasers while flying my x-wing and or Jedi Starfighter. Screw dying in space!

    What I learned from Rougue One

    I thought it looked like the Rebellion was already well to equipped. They could strike anywhere and everywhere it wasn't like they were on the run as they were in Episode 4 and 5. It sort of have the Supreme Commander strategy where the Empire was on the back food from these break away states and they had to bank their military strategy around completion of this one super weapon. I was hoping for evacuation of a Rebel base then the Rebels go to Yavin 4. To me it seemed like Rouge one followed the video and table top games like Rebellion and Battlefront than they followed the movie. I haven't read all the comments yet so maybe someone already said this but you way off. Clearly the rebellion had grown to a decent size, decent enough to have a strike force but notice that they threw everything they had (in a surprise attack) at the empire lost a ton of ships and then were on the run again after losing that many ships. They weren't nearly all powerful and that wasn't half the empires fleet, not even a quarter. I've said my peace continue.

    About to Enter Regionals

    Thanks all for the help, I'm actually really hoping for a lot of defenders as I know how to deal with them more than a manaroo and friends type of list. I'm really getting to the point where my palp aces list is the most solid. Though I shy away from it because you see a lot of them! I'm really working on starting position now.

    About to Enter Regionals

    I am about a month and a half away from my first regionals, I have played in three tournaments in my X-Wing Career and am excited to try my hand in regionals. I'm looking for some wisdom from those of you that have already played in regionals this year. What's the meta like? From the videos that I've watched I'm seeing lots of scum, Dengaroo, attani, Partybus. Rebels are pretty much rocking k-wings and Imperial well we all know that it's palp aces defenders. What am I missing? Also I am struggling with what to bring so far I'm thinking Rey, Norra for some serious damage output. I also have a palp Aces list but I'm very reluctant to take it as I feel everything imperial is palp aces and everyone knows how to fight it. Thanks in Advance Stay Positive PS I'm looking for good advice if you've never played in a tourney or regionals at all this post isn't for you with all due respect.

    An All-together Bad Time

    Sorry to hear that JB, I do agree with what TurboCooler though with one little addition. Most people hate to hear this but it's often the truth. Adjust your attitude towards situations. I'm not talking about the guys berating you about your list or some ****** fortressing (that annoys us all) but you went to a tournament you tried your best and you flew some hard ships to fly. Take it as a learning curve and do a little better the next time, and a little better the time after that. It doesn't matter how many time you fall as long as the times you got back up is one more! Good luck!
