  1. Yeah, I don't think swarm tactics is the way to go. Firstly, it limits your manuverabilty by keeping you in formation, so the A-wing's greatest strength is thrown out the window. Second, I don't think you have enough firepower to I6 alpha strike something, so even if you do pull off a perfect swarm tactics joust, you probably won't be able to kill someone. And finally, the total cost of the swarm tactics is 14 points. It adds up. I do like the idea of rex firing early, however. So here's my idea of the squad: Captain Rex (30) Airen Cracken (36) Swarm Tactics (4) Sabine Wren (41) Leia Organa (7) Cavern Angels Zealot (39) Contraband Cybernetics (2) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Cavern Angels Zealot (39) Contraband Cybernetics (2) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0 •Airen can fly next to Rex, giving him swarm tactics and an extra action if needed. •The A-wings become Cavern Angels with contraband cybers, which is pretty much a straight upgrade over just a Phoenix •Sabine is really good, and she carries leia for some extra support
  2. Great to hear! Will you be at the tourney?
  3. @Scum4Life You can right click the mat and select "epic setup"
  4. Easier link to discord: https://discord.gg/8vfXfup Here's what it says in tournament info: First of all, I'd like to welcome you to the Funknova System! I'm sure you'll have a great time here. Please make sure you check the tournament's listbuilding restrictions below. : ) At the start of the tournament, you will pair up with another participant, and you will both bring a 400 point epic squad. You may include huge ships, wings, and epic upgrades. You can message @FunkMaster_Flex if you want to be paired with a specific teammate, but if you signed up on your own, you can be assigned a random partner. Round pairings will be up on July 6 at 8:00 AM central time on TTT, after that, you have the rest of the week to play your round. Each game has a timer of three hours and thirty minutes, however, you probably won't need that long. Listbuilding: 400 points per player You may only bring 6 ships of the same type, unless the ship's lowest cost is 29 points or lower, in which case you may bring a maxium of 12. You must include at least 1 huge ship in your squad (unless you are playing as the Galactic Republic with a "Bad Guy" teammate, in which case you do not have access to the CR-90, since it is not legal for that group) You will probably want to brainstorm your fleet with your teammate, since it is Illegal to have duplicate unique pilots/upgrades. You and your teammate must bring either the same faction or "corresponding" factions. (Side note: While the Galactic Republic faction is split across different groups, if both players on a team are playing as the Galactic Republic, they may use any ships in the faction) Corresponding factions/ships list: Good Guys: Rebels Resistance All republic force users excluding Anakin Skywalker as a Y-wing pilot and Delta-7 pilot Republic judiciary Naboo N-1 starfighter R2-D2 as a Y-wing pilot. Bad guys: Empire First Order V-19 Torrent Arc-170 (republic) Y-wing excluding R2-D2 pilot Anakin Skywalker as a Delta 7 pilot and as a Y-wing pilot Morally Ambiguous Guys Separatists Scum and Villainy
  5. @Gilarius The "community" is the discord for the tournament, with full tournament details The "League" is where you can purchase entry When I get the chance, I'll change the names to something clearer

  8. I'm not a fan of the ghost, but I love the shuttles! They have two distinct functions that they both excel at, from the Sheathapiede's wide array of support abilities to the attack shuttle's high offense and high mobility. Also, I love the basic rebel theme of synergies and heavy hitters.
  9. I've recently had some success with a generic Y-wing with an Ion turret in HS. 35 is pretty cheap for an 8-health control piece. Luke Skywalker (62) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 62 Half Points: 31 Threshold: 3 Thane Kyrell (48) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Ship total: 48 Half Points: 24 Threshold: 3 Braylen Stramm (52) Ship total: 52 Half Points: 26 Threshold: 4 Gray Squadron Bomber (30) Ion Cannon Turret (5) Ship total: 35 Half Points: 18 Threshold: 4 Total: 197 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v8ZhZ200Z4XWWWW142Y9XWWWW142Y73XWWWWWWY30X138WWWWW&sn=Unnamed Squadron&obs= You could also swap braylen for dutch + proton torpedoes
  10. What about 2X and 2 gold squadrons with protorps?(hyperspace) Luke-62 Thane-48 Gold squadron pilot+protorps-45 Gold squadron pilot+protorps-45 200 total. Seems like a good, beefy alpha strike with a pair of decent snub fighters to win the mid/endgame.
  11. Is 5x actually good tho? It seems like it's a list people run "because they can"
  12. Yes... gooood... use your hate
  13. This is it. The place to let all your salty tears pool around your feet until you're able to swim around in them. Type in all caps. Give the forum's auto-censor a run for its money. Bessech your dice in a judgement free thread of self-pity. I'll go first Went to a store championship, played against a list with vader, marek, and 2 sienar specialists. I have luke, Thane, Dutch+proton torpedoes, and a grey squadron bomber with an ion cannon turret. •opponent moves along his deployment zone, gunning for thane. •thane arc dodges 3 of 4 arcs, however, they all lock him. •next turn, a sienar pilot lands on a rock while trying to catch thane. My squad collapses in on it, and kills it. The other generic and vader have no shot, but Marek has a range three, obstructed, unmodded shot at luke (remember, he locked thane) he rolls 2 natrual hits, and I roll 4 blanks. Shields down on luke. Next turn, the furball starts. The remaining generic is at range one of all of my ships, except dutch, who has range 2 for a proton torpedoes, and has no defensive mods •Vader overshot, has no shot • thane shoots, 4 blanks, target locked+focus into 3 hits 2 evades, 1 damage •luke shoots, target locked+force for 4 hits. 3 evades, 1 damage •marek shoots, takes shields off of thane •dutch fires proton torpedoes, 1 hit, 2 blanks, 1 eyeball. used target lock for 2 hits total 3 evades, 0 damage •sienar specialist shoots at thane. 3 crits. Thane blanks out, thane gets a direct hit. Thane is dead. All in all, I did 2 damage with 2 double modded 4 dice shots + 1 single modded 4 dice shot, and lost a full thane for my trouble. I want to know all your tales of dice that you've been to afraid to post on the forums!
  14. Hot take: this is a conspiracy to get everyone to bring a bad ship to big tournaments so matt can swoop in and take the W for himself /s
