  1. I can so much relate to your post. I have played with Konstantine a lot and always felt he was kinda of lackluster - this is both when I tried to both increase or decrease speed of my opponents ship. I feel that if they just spam navigate or have nav tokens it K does not have much of an effect. However, I felt it was necessary to stack him up with everything that can alter speed to make him somewhat effective like tractor beam and G8. It is a shame that FFG has not included him in a errata. It sometimes seem like FFG only makes changes to upgrades that people complain about being too OP and not change upgrades that people actually ever use (like that should be a hint, I might be wrong). I like your opition 3.
  2. Haha yeah I hear that very often when I play the Quasar I have used the quaser a lot, also in another version with a GSD and 2 flots + squadron wing. However, in my expereince it has worked as the perfect bait. When people see such a ship deployed they tend to get reckless and try rush it because it is such an easy target (which it is!). I tend to get this to work to my advantage and let them chase it, I fly it like it was part of an Ackbar fleet, sideways across the field. I rarely ever lose the quasar when I play. Yet, this is not to say it is a good idea, just my personally experience and I totally get your concerns. Regarding the VSD, I tend to lose that ship more often than out, due to the speed 2. I use it as an anchor. I have some trouble when flying it, because I feel it can get blocked very easy. And I to am very keen on making a bomber fleet without an ISD, which is a ship I use for almost all my fleets. Nonetheless, I have become used to have the possibility of going speed 3 if I get in a tough spot. How do you guys fly the VSD? I usually have SP, I just wanted to test Minefields since I have a VSD so it could help making its jounary more comtabfbel. xD The last 4-5 times I played SP I got over 130-150 points so I agree that it is so much better to farm points.
  3. This is the current list that I use for my dual ISD fleet: Author: Messi22 Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 389/400 Commander: Moff Jerjerrod Assault Objective: Precision Strike Defense Objective: Fleet Ambush Navigation Objective: Superior Positions [ flagship ] Imperial I-Class Star Destroyer (110 points) - Moff Jerjerrod ( 23 points) - Flight Controllers ( 6 points) - Expanded Hangar Bay ( 5 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) = 148 total ship cost Imperial Star Destroyer Kuat Refit (112 points) - Avenger ( 5 points) - Governor Pryce ( 7 points) - Boarding Troopers ( 3 points) - Reinforced Blast Doors ( 5 points) - Leading Shots ( 4 points) - External Racks ( 3 points) = 139 total ship cost 1 Morna Kee ( 27 points) 1 Soontir Fel ( 18 points) 1 Maarek Steele ( 21 points) 1 Darth Vader ( 21 points) 1 Zertik Strom ( 15 points) = 102 total squadron cost Before wave 7 I used two ISD 1 with Jerry. As I am going speed 3 with both of them and play very aggressiv I never go navigation command due to Jerry. 90% of the time Pryce does her trick on turn 2 where you can last/first hit given you are 1st player. Otherwise it is turn 3. Pryce for me is my favourite EMP office atm and I actaully have a hard time making a ISD fleet without her. However, as you point out she can backfire and it has taken a lot of pratice for me at least to get her right in my fleets. In my first 10 games with her I tried so many times where I didn't get much or none value. However, it is important to learn your playstyle and then adjust your fleet to that. I think if you like to play more defensivly then Strategic advisor might be a better option.
  4. I made a Thrawn version: Author: Messi22 Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 395/400 Commander: Grand Admiral Thrawn Assault Objective: Blockade Run Defense Objective: Fighter Ambush Navigation Objective: Minefields Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - Bomber Command Center ( 8 points) = 35 total ship cost Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 25 total ship cost [ flagship ] Quasar Fire II-class Cruiser-Carrier (61 points) - Grand Admiral Thrawn ( 32 points) - Squall ( 3 points) - Admiral Chiraneau ( 10 points) - Ruthless Strategists ( 4 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) = 114 total ship cost Victory I-Class Star Destroyer (73 points) - Agent Kallus ( 3 points) - Ruthless Strategists ( 4 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - Ordnance Pods ( 3 points) = 87 total ship cost 1 Major Rhymer ( 16 points) 7 TIE Bomber Squadrons ( 63 points) 1 Tempest Squadron ( 13 points) 1 Black Squadron ( 9 points) 1 Valen Rudor ( 13 points) 1 Dengar ( 20 points) = 134 total squadron cost
  5. Well in my community we sometimes behind agree on who goes first and second and what objective we want to play, if we want to test our fleet out in a spefic objetive or some combo that requires one either going first or second xD I might consider another ship combination with an ISD and GSD for some classic hammer and anvil action. Howver, no matter what I will take a good look at the squadrons again!
  6. Thank you so much for the construtive input Tokra! I really have a lot to think about now. I get your scepticisme regarding the GSD's acting as the main damage source, however my kill count is really high where I tend to destroy ISD's in 3 attacks. Furthermore, Engine techs have proven for me to be the difference between ending your movement in a ISD's front arc or just managing to get on the side. I would be to afraid to play without it. Thanks so much for the squadron input I will have to make some changes there! Is the raider in your opinion a silly ship to bring along or? Concering the objetives I do not expect to go as second, however my objetives are picked to trick my opponent. In intel sweep I pick one of my Gonzantis as objetive ship and then I use them as bait. Tried it four times now and worked everytime. I lost my objetive ship, however it was worth the cost since I destroyed most of my opponents fleet! In regards to Contestet outpost, the same logic applies. I merely fly a Gonzanti to the station, whereas in my experience, people with big ships pick it due to them thinking, that idiot can't win this objetive. My idea is not to win any points on it, it is to direct their ships to the station so it makes my job a 1000 times easier to flank them with my GSD and boom. So far, my experience has been pretty good.
  7. The idea with this fleet is to pack some serious punch with the dual GSD and then get out. I have used it a lot lately and it has proven to be viable. However, this fleet (For me anyway) ONLY works if I go as player 1. My bid before was at 25, but I was at a local store championship where everyone had aces so I gave my raider Agent Kallus and a titel upgrade. The squadron combo follows the raider around which makes them even harder to kill meanwhile the Gonzantis rely from random positions. Everything is deployed around the entire play area. What do you guys think of this field? I would really like some input concerning the squadrons!

  8. Thanks for all the awesome feedback guys!
  9. I love Konstatine! And I am always trying different builds with him - but in order to use him we need at least two medium ships - and with The Empire that is a bit costy. I usally combine the interdictor with a VSD and typically use a gladiator for some hammer and anvil action. But I would like to hear your guys thoughts on him. How do you use him and what kind of builds do you manage?

  11. Just to be sure how first officer works, at the start of your activation you remove your top dial and then just go and active number two and play with two dials for the rest of the game?
  12. How much can you manage to repair a other ship with one gozanti in a game?
  13. Okay please come with critic on everything from pick of objectives, commander, upgrades.
