  1. Last I heard, Torrents were considered not very good.
  2. TIE/ln Fighter - •Valen Rudor - 42 •Valen Rudor - Braggadocious Baron (28) Outmaneuver (6) Shield Upgrade (8) TIE/ln Fighter - •“Night Beast” - 34 •“Night Beast” - Obsidian Two (26) Stealth Device (8) VT-49 Decimator - •Captain Oicunn - 121 •Captain Oicunn - Inspired Tactician (74) Intimidation (3) •Darth Vader (14) •0-0-0 (5) GNK “Gonk” Droid (10) Shield Upgrade (3) •Dauntless (4) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) Total: 197/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder The main idea is to use the Decimator to keep one or more ships from going anywhere while the TIEs help or harass where needed. While I am sure there are better pilots, and possibly ships, to replace the listed TIEs, I am working with limited resources currently. So, feel free to make suggestions for how I can refine the list with the given pilots, as well as what I might want to buy when I can.
  3. I have an odd idea for a setting and I would like help. Why would the safest place to take sanctuary from some sort of monster apocalypse be underwater? I can not get this idea out of my head. In a world lost to zombies, or some other sort of monster(s), a group of survivors find that the best place to spend the night is underwater in a sub. The only thing that I can currently think of is that there is a fog at night that is the cause of the threat. I am not yet sure if the pre apocalyptic setting is modern or closer to cyberpunk. At the very least making me answer questions would help me create the setting. Thank you in advance.
  4. Hmm, eco terrorists were just a place filler. Maybe a doomsday cult that worships a rogue AI. I do love the imagery with the whale corpse full of zombies. Maybe it was just used as a distraction?
  5. You might want to look at the Supers rules if you want the PCs to be Planeswalkers.
  6. I just had a burst of inspiration and I feel like sharing. An eco terrorist organization has decided to make an example of New Angels. Jinteki once created a sort of zombie virus, but in a rare moment of sanity, canister 2359 was sealed away to never see the light of day. Somehow it has fallen into the hands of said eco terrorists. They have loaded a dead whale with as many infected corpses as possible. When the whale corpse finally washed ashore, the infected burst out. This is all I have so far. Thoughts?
  7. I flew the above list against a Republic formation. It was a good learning experience. I lost, but I thought I learned a lot about how to fly this list. The main thing is that I need to let Rey get ahead of Tubbs early to best make us of his ability. I think that I have found my list. I just need to "get gud."
  8. Thank you for your help. As per suggestions, I have changed my list to the following. Scavenged YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Rey - 95 •Rey - Resourceful Scavenger (80) •Rey’s Millennium Falcon (5) •Finn (10) T-70 X-wing - •Jaycris Tubbs - 52 •Jaycris Tubbs - Loving Father (50) R4 Astromech (2) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) T-70 X-wing - •Lieutenant Bastian - 52 •Lieutenant Bastian - Optimistic Analyst (48) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) Heavy Laser Cannon (4) Total: 199/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder
  9. Scavenged YT-1300 Light Freighter - •Rey - 94 •Rey - Resourceful Scavenger (80) Cluster Missiles (5) Engine Upgrade (7) Instinctive Aim (2) T-70 X-wing - •Jaycris Tubbs - 50 •Jaycris Tubbs - Loving Father (50) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) T-70 X-wing - •Kare Kun - 53 •Kare Kun - Woman of Action (53) Integrated S-foils (Open) (0) Total: 197/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder I would appreciate some help, please. I have three points left and I am not sure if I should spend them or keep the bid. The closest I have to a strategy for this list is to keep Tubbs near Rey to use his ability. Further feedback would also be appreciated. After playing around with lists a lot, I think that Resistance Aces fits my current style best. Thank you in advance.
  10. Sorry if I am rehashing old ground. I feel like the kits mainly benefited more casual players and those who routinely flew Aces. If you were a Swarm player, or had a lot of stuff for another reason, then you might need to buy multiple kits, which is not cool. I speak as what I feel is the target audience.
  11. I recently had a stroke of inspiration for a fantasy setting where Dwarves are the dominate race. Races are called the (Something) Made depending on how well they match Dwarves, the Well Made. Who are clearly the intended template. How much of the book would be harvestable for such a setting? Feel free to chime in with other thoughts if you want.
  12. I know it goes against conventional wisdom of more Vultures, but I want to try the following list just to see how much of a difference one Vulture and I3 make. Sith Infiltrator - •0-66 - 72 •0-66 - Sinister Automaton (55) •Count Dooku (9) •General Grievous (3) •K2-B4 (5) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Stealth Device (6) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Stealth Device (6) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Stealth Device (6) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Stealth Device (6) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder
  13. Toasters have no need for faith.
  14. I do not know why, but this faction has me considering swarms for the first time.

    Happy Friday

    Wave five? The last was three. I am confused.
  16. You could always try it out for yourself. Just create a backup list with out them and see which dose you better. I am guessing that the reason they are seen as a trap is mainly because it is very hard to get bullseye arc, especially on small ships.
  17. I like this list better. Thank you both for your help.
  18. Sith Infiltrator - •0-66 - 101 •0-66 - Sinister Automaton (55) Proton Torpedoes (12) •Chancellor Palpatine (14) •DRK-1 Probe Droids (6) Shield Upgrade (4) •Kraken (10) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Shield Upgrade (6) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Shield Upgrade (6) Vulture-class Droid Fighter - Separatist Drone - 32 Separatist Drone - (22) Energy-Shell Charges (4) Shield Upgrade (6) Total: 197/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder I will admit that I may just be playing around right now, but I feel like sharing. 0-66 is the main point of this list. I plan on using Kraken to try make sure that the Vultures all have Calculate tokens ready when they engage. Palp is mainly there to give me a nice option for 0=66's ability. Thoughts?
  19. Thank you. Largely due to practical reasons, I am going to try two knights with Obi first. Then I will see if I like the idea and if I need another ship.
  20. I am trying to decide between two versions of a list and I would appreciate your help. Delta-7 Aethersprite - Jedi Knight - 39 Jedi Knight - (39) Delta-7 Aethersprite - Jedi Knight - 39 Jedi Knight - (39) Delta-7 Aethersprite - Jedi Knight - 39 Jedi Knight - (39) Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Plo Koon - 81 •Plo Koon - Serene Mentor (51) Battle Meditation (13) Delta-7B (17) Total: 198/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Plo Koon - 89 •Plo Koon - Serene Mentor (51) Shield Upgrade (8) Battle Meditation (13) Delta-7B (17) Delta-7 Aethersprite - Jedi Knight - 54 Jedi Knight - (39) Delta-7B (15) Delta-7 Aethersprite - Jedi Knight - 54 Jedi Knight - (39) Delta-7B (15) Total: 197/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder The idea behind both of them is the same. Mainly I I want to use Battle Meditation with Sprites. I think the second one fits my style better, but I am sure.
  21. Can we please not turn this thread into a gripefest about other wargaming communities.
  22. It is experiences like you had that can drive players away from both the competitive scene and even the game itself.
  23. BTL-A4 Y-wing - •Kavil - 60 •Kavil - Callous Corsair (43) Expert Handling (2) Dorsal Turret (2) R4 Astromech (2) Shield Upgrade (4) Hotshot Gunner (7) BTL-A4 Y-wing - •Drea Renthal - 65 •Drea Renthal - Pirate Lord (42) Expert Handling (2) Proton Torpedoes (12) •“Genius” (2) Proximity Mines (6) Munitions Failsafe (1) StarViper-class Attack Platform - Black Sun Assassin - 75 Black Sun Assassin - (48) Marksmanship (1) Shield Upgrade (8) •Virago (10) Stealth Device (8) Total: 200/200 View in the X-Wing Squad Builder To be honest I have not given much thought about how they would work together. Really it is an Ace list designed to try and best take advantage of each ship's ability. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  24. I have a Scum list idea that uses two Y-wings and a Starviper. I plan on buying the Scum conversion kit and a new Y-wing. Is there anything that you recommend that I buy for the cards? For the sake of argument, assume that I have nothing else for 2.0 but the Core set.
  25. I am not sure on an exact list yet, but I want to try a Scum list of the two limited Y-wings and the Black Sun Assassin Starviper.
