  1. For a Rebel medium, how about the Dauntless-Class Heavy Cruiser from Rebellion? Heavy firepower but limited fighter support for a brawling role.
  2. I bought three when they first came out. Have yet to try them against my friend's SSD however.
  3. Oh if only they'd have made it similar to how a lot of us fans wanted for the very beginning-an interdictor for all the fancy tech slots, and a dedicated combat cruiser...Just wishful thinking now.
  4. This ship could be the Medium Carrier the rebels need, while the MC-40 can fill the medium combat support role.
  5. I already have 3 pre-ordered ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Normally, at 800 points, you have the activation advantage over Imperial forces, unless they're using a dedicated MSU fleet. Also, unless they're using Jerry, they're not the most maneuverable either at high speed. I wouldn't say either side has an advantage over the other, even at 800 points.
  7. At 800 points, as you've seen, the board can become very cluttered in a hurry, especially when you throw in the waves of fighters that each side can deploy. If he is denying you the option to flank, try running a slow-rolling gunline. Try to force him to over-extend himself and seize the opportunity if it presents itself. Otherwise you can try to stay at range and strafe from a distance. Bring generic squadrons and use them to tie up his aces, and support your fighters with E-Wing snipers or a flak ship like a Nebulon-B with Tallyn Farr. Force him to choose between committing all his fighters or letting them sit there while accomplishing nothing. At 800 points you can equip your ships with more upgrades to try to keep them alive and hitting harder. Use every tool at your disposal. Also practice maneuvering your fleet. How many ships can you comfortably maneuver in a tight formation? I normally keep my fast-movers (MC-30's, CR-90's or even MC-80L's) together so i can make slashing attacks. Larger ships (MC-80's and MC-75's) work well together, screening Pelta's or Nebulon-B's. Hope this advice helps. Us Rebels gotta stick together ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. Always excited for more rebel ships. I'll take 3 ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. For the Rebels, i'd like to see the following: Starfighters: K-Wing, U-Wing, Defender and the YT-2000 Flotillas: Braha'tok Gunship Small: DP-20 Corellian Gunship, CC-7700/CC-9600 and Ranger-Class Gunship Medium: MC-40A, Rebel Assault Frigate Mk I, Liberator-Class Cruiser and Majestic-Class Heavy Cruiser Large: Dauntless-Class Heavy Cruiser, MC-80B/MC-90 and Nebula-Class Star Defender/Endurance-Class Fleet Carrier
  10. Well my first go against a SSD ended rather roughly. It was a 600 point game and he fielded an Executor-I with Jerjerrod, Palpatine, Leading Shots and Heavy Turbolaser Turrets, a Gladiator-i SD with Ordnance Experts, ACM's and Demolisher. Fighter support consisted on Mauler, Howlrunner, Fel, Rhymer, Zertik and Bobba Fett. My fleet consisted of an MC-80 Assault (Raddus, Engine Techs, ECM, EWS, LS and Home One), MC-80L (Caitkin & Shollan, Spinals, Xi7 and Mon Karren) and MC-75 Ordnance Cruiser (Ordnance Experts, ECM, Ext Racks and Rapid Reload). Fighter support consisted of Luke, 2 X-Wing's, 3 YT-2400's, 3 Lancer's, 1 H-6 Scurgg, Gold Squadron and Green Squadron. I'll admit i did not play my best. I was a little rusty, forgot to use some of my upgrades to best effectiveness and didn't roll great. However my opponent used the tools at his disposal quite well. so kudos to him. He destroyed my Command Ship before i could deploy the Liberty. After that, he started to pound the MC-75. We called it at the end of turn 3, but i'm certain one more round would have seen the MC-75 gone as well. Fellow Rebels, here are some advice i can offer: Jerjerrod on a SSD is absolutely crazy. That ship can turn almost on a dime. Those auxiliary arcs are pretty good as well. 3 Shots/round at medium range hurt. At close range you better be fielding Rieekan. Those double contain/brace/redirects are very hard to chew through. That pass token is annoying. Better take more ships or Strategic Advisor to counter it. Still, hope is not lost. I'll get him next time ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. Interesting. I'm facing a 600-point engagement where my opponent will be fielding an Executor-II Star Dreadnought. My admiral of choice? Raddus. I'm fielding a battle group comprised of an MC80 Command Cruiser, MC80L Battle Cruiser, MC-75 Ordnance Cruiser and 2 MC-30c Scout Frigates, with 13 squadrons of fighter support. Never fielded Raddus as admiral so i'm hoping to catch him by surprise and throw the liberty into a rear aux or rear shield.
  12. 135 points for the Starhawk is my guess.
  13. Not to worry. There's always something to complain about in the forums, or so it seems ๐Ÿ™‚
  14. The card should be called "Let the wookies win" ๐Ÿ˜€
  15. Oh yes. Fleet displays are always impressive ๐Ÿ™‚
