    Using Sai to replace Redline?

    The problem is that, prior to points, if you were flying a non-vader TIEx1, you were doing it wrong.

    Semi-ace? Redline is/was better at repositioning than ships like Soontir due to Sensors. Redline was not what was keeping Sai out of the meta. What was keeping Sai out was that there were no ships in Empire that were so action hungry that you would be willing to spend ~50+ points to give it a focus token each turn. Then redline is an amazing Endgame ship. He is not just a dumb hammer. If Redline is a 1v1 vs a ship like Wedge or Thane, Redline can and will send that ship into the stone age, possibly never getting shot. Redline is almost as difficult to chase down as Kylo. Redlines that were the most successful realized "Hey wait this is basically a supernatural ace that shoots torps"

    Sai is not a replacement for Redline in the same way that a TV is not a replacement for a Car. Redlibe is brought for double-modified proton torps, and Init 5 repositioning before/after moving: IE Ace play. Sai isa supportive brick.

    Yeah, my 3 Barons (Repainted to be Red Barons, of course) might actually see use with a turret. God **** though are barons just straight-worse RZ2 A-wings. Worse Dial slightly Worse linked actions slightly Slightly worse upgrade bar No Turret 1 point less Is that a joke? If they had the ability to take Delta 7B i'd consider them too I guess. They have no real damage output when shooting with 2dice, and lack Turret TimeOnTarget. Delta 7b will cost 16-20 on that note.

    His name is the GRAND GALACTIC INQUISITOR. He hears all, sees all! GGI for short.

    Card packs would be ideal, since they could be produced on much shorter notice as well. No models to be designed means no injection mold needs to be made, etc. Also, as a note on what was said on the podcast- A finely detailed steel injection mold for plastic (one needs to be made for each sculpt) can run 6 figures, easily.

    How much would you pay to give a 38 point i3 Inquisitor the Delta7b Config (making it 3/2/2/4)? More than 20? What kind of prices are we looking at for Deltas, Delta7b, and Calibrated Lasers?

    I will bring a stack of AA 0-0-0 cards to Krayt Cup if you want it so bad. Or if you aren't going to KC4 I can ship you a set or something. I also did not buy a scum conversion kit and already owned 2 Decis- I just made an AA card.

    Tie swarm mirrors are irrelevant. They rarely, if ever, happen. What matters is matchups against 3Ace/trench run schlock. In that case, I would take the 6 because they have more words and words on your card can be a replacement for positional choices. However, ideally some non-howl, non-iden swarm would be viable. Unfortunately, the only list type of that nature is Sloane atm: Words are undercosted.

    You know they won't play 5 ship rebel in mass, since it's not 3 ship and they don't move last. And my point is that as Strikers benefit from init more than other ships, why is I1 to i5 linear, with a free ability thown in at i5? Surely then either Duchess should cost more, or Scouts should cost less.

    I kinda went onto this in my rant- But sloane is bull, but the problem is that it's the only thing propping a list up like the RAC one chris posted. The secret is that generic pilots are still awful in this meta. The point adjustments played Whack a mole, and whacked most of the moles. The problem is that that the game is still being played above a metaphorical mole den, and FFG should probably hire an exterminator to get rid of those moles at the source. The Striker itself is a perfect example- Initiative is not fairly costed, nor are the abilities that ships have costed correctly. I'm interested in how CIS will turn out- They have no turrets, and no high init ships. They'll either be the first faction with a distinct identity (wierd how every faction's identity turned into 3-ship ace lists?) or they'll be bad. The meta was high-init Ace Alpha prior to the adjustment, now I forsee it being a mix of alpha and Turrets. Oh boy you know how 'fun' turrets are... There will also likely be some XXYYU **** with Leia that jousts a bunch. Also god **** are Sentinels and Scouts (striker generics) awful holy ****. What would a fair cost for a Sentinel be if it could take no upgrades? What would a fair cost for a Scout be if the only EPT it was allowed was Crack Shot?

    there's a chance that they choice the Deci over the Lambda as they didn't want to try to make a large base support ship the next release. That being said, I would have much rather had the Interceptor as the next wave. This coming from the guy who has 2 cusomized Kraytinators.

    Yes? 3-4 dice Focus+Evade+Force is hard to chew through. He'll take 2-3 damage. Then he desperately tries to not get halved without killing 2 ups first.

    Striker Generics are awful, at least conpared to the named ones.
