    Just checked to see if Barnes and Nobel (B&N) had Wave V in stock and none of the ships are showing on the website. Unsure if that means they're not available in store. Curious if any other major retailer has a hold of it.
    Not trying to start a debate here all; this is just more observation. I do think it's nice if the local stores have the opportunity to sell the items first. I totally get that it's key to the game, and miniatures as a whole, if FLGS get to sell these items first. 
    But there's a lot of players (like me) who don't have FLGS support and play within a pretty small community. I'm fine with waiting for a little bit, but with bigger tourneys still going on to end the year, I hope I can get my hands on the new wave soon so I can practice (also slightly jealous of posts I've seen of the models in hand 😆).

    For “premier events, yes. Hyperspace Trials didn’t fall under this but I believe that is changing. The TO at the one I just went to was told it was his choice whether or not Wave 5 was legal today.

    No. It just adds another white Lock action to the bar.

    kempokid reacted to DarthSempai in Matchstick: are target locks considered red tokens?   
    I think matchstick will probably be very strong, for the reasons pointed already. If you're already bringing 2 torrent to serve as blocker / cheap filler, they don't mind using their locks on matchstick to give him extra reroll since they mostly take focus or evade action either way. Having a better version of V.1 predator is always good, especially with multiple attack, but hopefully that particular trick will have been exposed in playtesting and he'll cost more because of that.

    It's not free at all.  It's a pilot abiity, it costs points, and it costs whatever locks the rest of your squad could use to mod their dice.

    I feel like the ships/cards have been appropriately priced to recharge every turn. There’s already enough conditional text in this game. I’m ok spending a bit more points that has a feature that simply works without thinking through another 50 interactions.

    Nodin being the same I as Finn, there’s potential to pull a ship into R1 of Finn. Or just try and put them into bad position for the following round.
    But yeah, as for damage output, AB is probably going to edge out Tractor. Overall though yes, this list fits a lot of what I’ve been successful with in the past. One strong ace-like ship with an assortment of support.

    I wouldn't say it's hot garbage, but there's some adjustments I would be keen to make. I think Ric is best kept simplified. And I think you can make some alternative pilot choices on the Sprite and Y-Wing.
    Foresight is card that belongs on Mace IMO. He's got the Force to spare and a way to regen it faster than most. 
    I've trimmed Ric down a bit to provide an upgrade to Matchstick. Matchstick is just really curious. It may not fit your style, so the generic is a good choice to stick with. But the idea here is to have the Torrent and maybe Ric or Mace to Target Lock Matchstick in the first round so they are always getting those rerolls. Debris Gambit gives you access to a third red token if needed, or if you need to pull Ric's lock off of Matchstick.  If you want to go with Ion control, you can downgrade the bomb.

    On top of this, with worlds being so close to us, better to be conservative now and lower points after worlds than deal with broken mechanics going into the biggest tournament of the year.

    As a republic player, I’m really struggling to see where these Y-Wings fit and there’s no obvious build for them that I can see. Guess it’ll take time and trial/error.
