    The community is what gives a player their power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.

    Hey Toph,
     
    interesting build.  Your right in saying the two weaknesses are definitely the hard to hit aces (Soontir, Defenders X7 etc) and swarms.  I've tried it out against a swarm and just relied on PS10 arc dodging to kill ships and didn't use the Sab + Kylo tactic much.
     
    i haven't tried it against high agility ships and ISO think it could be tough to get that hit to stray the ball rolling.  Pred/gunner chirpy really helps that a lot and Hot Shot co pilot build is ace in that regard.my only hope is to use arc dodging against these aces at PS10 then hope the green dice don't behave.
     
     
    gunner and not taking the alpha deployment seems very viable and a lot more reliable from shot to shot.  I'm going to play around with my original build but may do some tweaks as you suggest if the forward deploy isn't very effective and I feel like the damage output is lacking
     
    thanks for the post!

    If I were to pay this list, I wood ride the shield upgrade with the title for the Lambda. The shield probably won't do all that much and the title gives your bombers the ability to barrel roll for position and still sit their missile

    With a super defensive loadout, I think I would rather have Quickdraw, as his ability is likely to trigger at least twice, possibly three times. In addition, with the lightweight frame you are almost always going to be rolling 3 defense dice so you probably won't need the sensor cluster, as you have pretty good odds of rolling at least 1 focus on each roll, so you can drop that to upgrade Backdraft. Other than that I really like this list, let us know how it works for you.

    Toph reacted to DodgingArcs in Darth Vader fix   
    I think you should just put Vader on the table. He isn't even hard to build because his EPT can be absolutely anything you want it to be. He is not a slave to his EPT. 
    Adaptability = PS 10
    Crackshot = minus 1 health to the opposition
    Predator/Lone Wolf = rerolls
    He might not have Autothrusters but he is probably the best arc dodger in the game for 34-35pts. 
    The advanced dial isn't even that bad when you can boost and roll. Vader actually has far more options than Soontir for his movement because he isn't stressed. 
    He is an absolute joy to fly. 
    He also isn't your whole list and thinking that a 35pt ship can take on 100pts of turrets by himself is just crazy. 
    Seriously, just fly him. He's better than fine. 
    Those other TIE Advanced though. The ones that don't have double actions, they are priced too high.

    Don't base your list around critical hits. Cards like marksmanship are a trap for the new. Also torpedoes and missiles CAN be good, but require you to find strong synergies and build around them. Simply adding proton torpedoes to your t-70 or concussion missiles to your tie advanced is generally not a great plan. Also prepare to watch your wallet cry out in pain with every new wave, people aren't kidding about the plastic crack thing

    Toph reacted to Force Majeure in Ray and U   
    @Baldon3055 Listent to @wurms he has some of the best U-Wing builds I've come across.
    Also, we can make lists 'til the cows come home, but if you don't understand why the cards that were suggested are on a particular list, then you can't take advantage of them or use them properly.
    For instance: I originally thought "Why would anyone crew Finn? Who wants to add blank dice?" but he works perfectly with Rey. Why? When combined with the TFA title that allows you to flip the Falcon around and keep enemies in arc, Finn adds a blank die that Rey can re-roll for BOTH attack and defense. That's a pretty powerful combo. Add Kanan crew and he essentially turns white turns into green maneuvers (clearing stress incurred from your 3 S-loop). Now that you're stress free, Expertise will turn any focus rolled during attack into hits. You roll 3 red dice  which averages to 1.5 hits per roll. The other results are either blank or focus. Add Finn's blank die. Re-roll up to 2 blanks with Rey's ability and if you haven't blanked out on the re-roll you either have a hit/crit or a focus, of which focus would become a hit thanks to Expertise. BOOM!
    Rey + Finn + Kanan + Expertise + TFA Title.  Built like this, she comes in at 58 points. Expensive, but worth it. With the right support ship(s) she's nigh unstoppable.

    I love Night Beast, too!  Whenever I start doing these various missions and such, he's one of the first ships I want to put it.  He's affordable, but has the action economy.  I love the mid PS Tie Fighters and agree that they are pretty good. 
    I actually looked him up on Wookiepedia one time.  He got his name because he kept sneaking out of the barracks after hours to go partying.

    Depends on the list. If it's K-wing bombers, if slamming will put you in a better position to drop a bomb this round or next, slam.
    General cases now:
    If you think that you have a better chance to block if you slam, and you need that block, slam.
    If you need to get out of dodge more than you need to shoot, slam.
    If you need to get back into the fight, slam.
    If you have a chance to gain a huge positioning advantage, slam.
    Generally, if your new position is better than taking a shot, slam.
