    Pooleman got a reaction from ThinkingB in Points are up   
    Months ago when the resistance conversion kit article posted the article said the kits cones with three dials fir the yt-1300. So I went out and bought at third falcon. Then the points come out and the cheapest pilot for the falcon is 68 points, meaning 3 of them will cost 204 points. I’m pretty pussedabout this.

    These look waaaay better than the last ones IMO. However I'll personally still want to get 6x3 so there isn't a gap. There are lots of sites that sell those with similar designs.

    looks line FFG is giving us some new playmate. The detail looks good. But you need to spend $80 for 2 3x3 mays. For $65 you can get a great 6x3 Mat from other third parties like FRONT LINE GAMING that’s in 1 piece and comes with a carry case.

    Pooleman got a reaction from Bucknife in Frustrating Tournament   
    So I played in a tournament at a local gaming event today. The tournament organizer showed up about 15 minutes before the event was supposed to start, which seemed like not enough time to me. 8 people showed up but one of the attendees got torqued off for some reason and left. When I have led tournaments if there is an even number of people I will not play, if there is an odd number I will step in to the the remaining even player. This TO decided to just not play. So with 7 people we played 3 rounds with someone sitting out each round. Very frustrating. 
    I flew Wedge, Luke, and Dutch Vander. Each with R3, proton toros, and swarm tactics so all three can engage at I6. I lost the first match by just a few point. I had to sit out the second match. I lost the third match by a few points as well. I took 4th place. 
    Im still pretty mad that the TO didn’t play to make it a proper bracket. He played his own card game, didn’t communicate well with the participants, didn’t tell us when to officially start each round. It was just not a great experience. $15 to play 2 rounds of X-Wibg feels like a ripoff to me.

    I'm not a rebel veteran, only play empire competitvely since my early days. But why isn't the Ghost seeing a lot of play? I played it for the first time the other day with Kanan and it feels super powerful with the reinforce and Kanan's Force and his ability. Is it just too expensive for competitive play?

    Im having fun with (199):
    (83) Luke skywalker- proton torps, supernatural reflexes 
    (61) Wedge Antilles- proton torps
    (55) Heff Tober- Leia, tactical officer
     
    There are 2 things going for this list:
    1) I always seem to get to fire 4 double modded proton torps fairly early in the match. In the first engagement heff can pass wedge a focus and luke can use force for 2 double modded 4 dice attacks. On the very next turn I can pull off essentially 6 speed white k turns.  Leia does her thing to allow red moves to be white. Luke supernatural boosts followed by 4k and a target lock to launch another torp. Heff can coordinate a boost to wedge who can do the same thing. Granted wedge wont be double modded if u give him a boost instead of a focus. Your k turns can get very unpredictable by doing bank boost before as well. Leia is seriously so good. Keep in mind she also allows heff to do 2 stops in a row. Which brings me to point number 2.
    2) The change to second edition U wings is incredible. The ability to rotate 90 or 180 degrees and not having to telegraph your stop is fantastic. Heff has 8 health so he can take a bit of punishment. Once he is injured make him run and preserve leia as long as possible. But before running hopefully he has landed a few key blocks. With a medium base and the ability to stop he is a great blocker. It is SUUUUUPER satisfying to block a fenn rau or soontir and proc Heffs ability to coordinate a barrel roll to luke (at I6) so that he gets his arc on an illusive target.
    If you want a bid or more upgrades u can downgrade wedge to Thane. Ive used that too and it has worked.
     
    Good luck at your tourny. #Rebelunderdogs4life

    Wedge loses way more than he wins. With the amount of Wedges being flown, a flew squeek into the top tables and it appears like he is doing good.
    Anyways, there was a reddit thread just posted with a blog about rebel lists being successful with and without Wedge:

    I think fundamentally there isn't a 'good' Rebel list, you're just looking for a 'good enough' list.  They're a long long way behind the other two factions, and appear likely to be behind Resistance as well.  First Order remains to be seen.
     
    You see Wedge a lot because he's a crutch.  He consistently appears in lists of the most-played pilots from big events and just as consistently appears in lists of worst-performing pilots.  It's just that there's nothing else in the faction.

    Look, I know he's not really all that good beyond being I6. I know that Rebels are struggling and that lists with him in aren't really doing all that well (apparently). I know it won't last forever.
    But can I just say that I love how, so far, all of these lists have Wedge in them?
    As someone who came into X-Wing long after even Wave 3 ships had largely started keeping non-Biggs X-Wings off the table, I'm thoroughly enjoying seeing my favourite pilot get some attention. 
    As another suggestion, I've not played it myself but I've heard naked Luke and Wedge with two Proton Torp Gray Squadron Bombers is better than it sounds. 
    It's a lot of HP to chew through and if they ignore the bombers to go after the aces, it's easier than you might think to get those Y-Wings locks for a torp shot next round. And while it's hard to get the torps off if they go for the bombers, it means they're chewing through beefy I2 ships and not doing damage to Wedge and Luke. Wedge is the vulnerable point, but if you exploit that and use him as bait you can hopefully trade him for two of theirs.

    Rebels are definitely in a bad spot.  The only Rebel list I'm aware has done particularly well was the Nordic Nationals winner.
    Sabine Wren  Norra Wexley + Proton Torpedoes  Jan Ors + Moldy Crow  Wedge Antilles + Crack Shot + Servomotor S-foils

    Han+Trick shot+CybImps, Wedge+marksmanship, Thane+marksmanship. All can hold their own. If they focus on Han, the XWs have enough naked firepower. If they ignore Han then all his rerolls including TL.
    Also keeps things simple without you forgetting to do things in a tournament environment.
