    Phanto Fiend got a reaction from Hos in Shadowcaster   
    If I'm running Asajj:
    defensively;  PTL, Latts, Title, Gyro 
    Offensively; PTL, Dengar, Title Gyro
    Combination/Fun; PTL, Recon specialist, Title, Gyro
    They're all pretty similar because with PTL and Gyro the action economy on the Shadowcaster is amazing, and I add illicit upgrades if I have the points remaining.  I'm also a huge fan of running Asajj with the Quadjumper to block and for additional tractor beam shenanigans 
     
    My usual list (6-1):
    Asajj - PTL, Latts, Title, Gyro
    Unkar Plutt - Ketsu Onyo, Pattern analyzer, BMST, Spacetug tractor array
    Old Teroch - Fearlessness, Title, Autothrusters

    Phanto Fiend got a reaction from Everyday Ace in I think this SCUM list would be a total blast! Let me know.   
    If you want a modification for staying at range 2-3 I would actually recommend vectored thrusters for barrel rolls rather than engine upgrades for the boost action. It's also 2 points as opposed to 4 points so you still save some points for other things. 
    List looks fun though. When Fenn gets his shot it's essentially one ship straight off the board.

    I agree, @Phanto Fiend, Kad is rad. He decently gets over shadowed by his higher PS comrades. Another thing is the same problem as Snap Wesley and Blue Ace where his ability gets better at a higher PS, but taking VI means you're missing out on some fantastic combos (such as the Kad-on-target you mentioned)

    Ditch Tactician and APL, and pick up Gunner. Several reasons for this:
    Tactician only works in arc, and the Decimator isn't exactly legendarily quick to turn, so it's going to be of limited use.
    APL just doesn't work as well on a ship like RAC, versus a ship like Oicunn. The high pilot skill means it's actually pretty easy to avoid.
    Gunner is going to work a treat here for several reasons:
    1) If you're spending your action on Kylo, you have no modifiers, so Gunner will give you that second chance off a bad roll, or off an attack your opponent evades.
    2) Gunner/Vader is a death sentence against ships like Fenn: best case scenario, they suffer a crit from the primary shot at R2, and a crit from Vader, worst case scenario, they suffer two crits from Vader. If you've already dropped Kylo on him, that's probably a dead Fenn (at worst, he's cruising on one hull and he's dead next turn).
    3) Gunner forces the target to either accept damage, or spend a chunk of tokens/abilities to evade both shots. This leaves Whisper with a juicy, tokenless target.
    If you're worried about initiative bids, you could drop VI to Adaptability and still find yourself in good condition. You could also take Hotshot Copilot instead of Gunner if you really wanted that bid and VI. This wouldn't make RAC any more effective than he was in the original configuration, but it will strip tokens for Whisper at least.

    Tactician is not great on RAC because they have to be in arc at range 2. APL is a little strange as well considering you'll be moving last.

    if if you lack Agent Kallus swap Chiraneau's VI for adaptability and upgrade Kallus to Rebel Captive.

    Phanto Fiend got a reaction from RevJJ in Your favorite list.   
    I am surprisingly 4-0 with 
    Asajj: PTL, Latts, shadowcaster, gyroscopic targeting 
    Old Teroch: fearlessness, concord dawn, autothrusters 
    Unkar Plutt: Ketsu onyo, spacetug tractor array, pattern analyzer, black market slicer tools. 
    Its surprising fun and effective to throw around all that stress and tractor beam tokens (that with luck don't go away thanks to Ketsu) 
     
    I've been tinkering with a similar build replacing Teroch with 4-Lom and upgrading Unkar to Sarco Plank. I have yet to test it though.

    It's also not terrible to put "A Score to settle" on Quickdraw. It's free, and you can put it on a ship that has little incentive to shoot at QD.

    My favorite upgrades are probably PTL and EU, but my more outside the box favorites would be; 
    1: stay on target for ships that can ignore or deal with stress efficiently and
    2: Lando + experimental interface, which come to think of it also needs to be a ship with efficient stress management. 
    They're both very fun to fly with though

    Guri and Fenn are a lesson in JUST HOW OVERPRICED the StarViper is.
    I mean, they have broadly comparable abilities if you compare them with just [EPT of your choice], Fenn with title, and Autothrusters.
    Fenn has 4 more PS and is a point cheaper, and has a a better pilot ability.
    Poor Guri.

    I'm a fan of any Firespray taking outmaneuver and tail gunner with EU to help insure back arc.  When you get your opponent to -2 defense dice it's amazing.  It works particularly well with Bobas' pilot ability.

    Phanto Fiend reacted to MS88 in What are the BEST list, and WHY?   
    As others have stated, there is no golden ticket, best, better, blah, blah lists in the game. There are top builds like parratani and palp aces, etc but even those lists can differ greatly within themselves.  That's the beauty of the game. What you seem to be looking for is netlisted builds so follow that link that ForceM posted. That should be all you need to look up the most current top lists to use.  Unfortunately it'll probably all change with the most recent FAQ and it'll probably change again in a few months when they release another one. 
    The game is fluid, you'll never get the discussion you're hoping for.

    Phanto Fiend reacted to Greebwahn in What are the BEST list, and WHY?   
    OP you won't find anyone who can tell you a best list. The list itself is such a small aspect of this game, that its pointless. Sure dice mods are important, but dice mods can fail, especially if you have no clue how to fly, or when to use the dice mods. This game is, ultimately, about one person versus one person, not one list versus one list
