  1. You might enjoy Thweek as a third ship. Can be made to any cost and leave a bid. He’s great end game, and survivable enough to get there. Bonus of taking PS with a bid so that he moves last ... even if not at PS9.

    What Are You Taking to Store Champs?

    I am so sad that I went full on try-hard and sucked at my only store champs this season by flying Miranda, Ezra, Lowhhrick. Given an opportunity to go to a second one in the next month ... (unlikely) ... I'll be flying the following absolute nonsense. Saw Gerrera (26) Expert Handling (2) Sensor Jammer (4) Renegade Refit (-2) Ezra Bridger (3) Hera Syndulla (1) Pivot Wing (0) Keyan Farlander (29) Veteran Instincts (1) Thrust Corrector (1) Maul (3) B-Wing/E2 (1) Wedge Antilles (29) Expertise (4) Renegade Refit (-2) Flight-Assist Astromech (1) Integrated Astromech (0) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Total: 99 View in Yet Another Squad Builder
  3. Expert Handling allows Saw to move a huge distance for an early block. Also barrel rolling U-Wings are hilarious. I thought about Push Wedge but decided against it because of reapers and Jam. I might give it a try next week. Sensor Jammer - I was wondering what to put there. Adv Sensors and FCS don’t work. I did get some value out of it. Engineering bump fests and making people toss unmodded dice meant it added great value. Would you have a suggestion for a better place to put those points?
  4. Then you can’t permastop and get double modded attacks from the edge of combat. Hera is a critical piece to keep the U-Wing relevant to the engagements.
  5. So I rolled this little beauty out at my flgs last night as part of my effort to fly ships that aren't Lowhhrick, Sheathipede & one other in the run in to second edition, and I was not disappointed. Double modded shots all over the place, just enough jank to keep you interested ... and oh my, but thrust corrector was just made for Keyan Farlander. Keyan Farlander (29) Veteran Instincts (1) Thrust Corrector (1) Maul (3) B-Wing/E2 (1) Saw Gerrera (26) Expert Handling (2) Sensor Jammer (4) Renegade Refit (-2) Ezra Bridger (3) Hera Syndulla (1) Pivot Wing (0) Wedge Antilles (29) Expertise (4) Renegade Refit (-2) Flight-Assist Astromech (1) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Integrated Astromech (0) Total: 99 View in Yet Another Squad Builder
  6. The most fun lists for me are the lists that throw a bucketload of dice ... So a Ghost plus Finn crew with Jan Ors support is on my list of things to try. Attempting to engineer the range 1 7 dice dream shot.

    Best X-Wing podcasts?

    186th are ace. Great content delivered by a bunch of good guys. They actually respect each other and the game too which is nice.

    Is Luke Gunner Actually That Good?

    Individual turns and maneuvers are irrelevant, if you are flying well, that means putting rocks in a way that allows you to control engagements, and setting your arc for that engagement at the start of the game, playing 2-3 turns ahead to get a real advantage on clutch turns. We already see the difference between good mobile arc players, and bad mobile arc players in shadowcaster play, that will be magnified with 2.0 turrets.

    Carolina Krayts is the best X-Wing podcast

    We still don't know upgrade slots, costs or anything... so many comments being made with a v1 slant and perception. Dash will be good, as a UK player, Leebo will be too ... Lando is great, it looks like more thematic synchronization is occurring (Lando with Nien Nunb crew being as much of a gimme as Rey Finn was in v1)

    So much that we don't know about the rules and how things work, so many folk jumping to swivel eyed assumptions that this or that new card is broken or DOA. We simply do not know the detail of v2, we don't know what a bonus attack is, how force works, what points costs things have. We don't know what other cards, and counter play options there are for the things that have been spoiled. The main thing that we haven't seen is the main new rules book. Just chill out, enjoy the run in, devour the information, but don't Rek yourself over half baked knowledge
  11. Yeah ... wishing I'd not fallen out with the triple wookiees 3 months ago ... got them out again last night and wrecked face in 2 games... smashed Lothal Fenn and Assaj/Scout at league night. Using the Expertise Liberators with Predator C-3PO Lowhhrick ... just made both lists sad with multi stress and modded shots. Lovely. Probably going to fly them on the run in to v2 ... hope it's still viable as a ship other than as part of rebel salad.

    2.0 Card Size, Reduces your Space on the Gaming Table

    Some of the stores near me have very limited space. They were already massively cramped with v1. I’m sure we will adapt and overcome. I’m mostly just mourning my ability to put lists in an ultra-pro mini with room for a pilot card and 6 upgrades.

    Could be the new sheathipede ... the rest of the dial looks the same.
