    Impervium Plating Vs Hull upgrade

    A few people bring degeneracy to test each other's lists for large events. I wanted to keep the kit tourney casual so I nuked Drea to Oblivion. The list wasn't good against the rest of the field, but at least a mindless spam list was stopped from winning store credit.

    Incoming? What are people using to put up with Drea then?

    Unpopular Opinion Thread

    I mean, assuming that the game did not have any points caps or if any Mace build cost exactly the same as a Grand Inky build. Even in that much of a vacuum to make things better for Grand Inky, Mace is way better despite being an unpopular initiative.

    After only 3 games with CLT and R4P17 on Mace as filler, I'm convinced that any Mace Windu build is straight up superior to any Grand Inky build. And I suck with Republic far more than I do with Empire, so that has to say something about where the V1 is.

    Delta 7B should be scalar in its costing. FFG was right to make it so. Ahsoka, the only named I3, is more expensive than all of the I4's, including a 3 force Jedi Master. The reason for this is her ability is seriously good. Support ships typically don't scale their costs with initiative as much as they scale their costs with their support abilities. When we're talking about a ship with 2 red dice, this all makes sense. Delta 7B turns a near-strictly support ship into a fighter, much like CLT. CLT already addresses costing the lower-init people as significantly less valuable than high init pilots as a result of the ease of lining up the bullseye on preferred targets. As a result, it needs to scale only softly. However, because 7B only changes stats, it would be possible for I4 to be cheaper than I3, which would be problematic for a config that encourages being more of an active combatant and not a support ship. And even with the Ahsoka ability aside, given that the I5 are not that natively more expensive than I4, if you are flying 7B with a fixed cost, without making use of the support abilities, there would be no reason to take an I4. TL;DR: Jedi are base-costed more heavily according to ability than to initiative, reflecting their support status. 7B needs to be scalar as it is the only way to balance 7B as a starfighter so that initiative is costed in a similar fashion to all the other starfighters in the game.

    The Petty "I Told you so Thread"

    I like how you can fly a 123 pt Anakin effectively with the rest of points going to the Senate on Wolffe. Given the synergy between the super-powered knight and Wolffe, it should be named "Artorias and Sif".

    I've already flown 2 ARC + 2 V19 in TTS. "Wolffepack Sinker Crack" is wicked powerful. Palp and Cody seal the deal. -Edit- To proxy on TTS without the new content, just fly Rebel and spawn the right base sizes. Make use of chat, and remember the small dial differences

    Back to Vermiel with Vader and Soontir, why not add a crack torp Tomax to the list? It isn't too pricey and can deal the pain. Since Vader crew has roughly the same damage effect as jam, throw on a tac officer and coordinate some focus to the bomber?

    The U-wing can't take Jan Ors [pilot] in gunner format. True, weapons disabled are needed to recharge, but that's for your turns with R2 and maybe a Plo Bro nearby. Can we also talk about Jedi Master Sensor Jammer Jerk, aka Luminara? ARCs will love her.

    The Petty "I Told you so Thread"

    I am a petty person, and thus I am starting this petty thread. I could claim "I told you so" over Delta 7B costing in the ballpark of 16-8pt, but I am still wrong because I did not call the scaling cost. I will say this, to all the people who tried to make Han have all the upsides of his mods with none of the downsides. May I present to you, the official ruling posted 35 min ago: Q: How does Han Solo [Rebel, Modified YT-1300]'s ability interact with "Midnight" [TIE/fo Fighter]? A: "Midnight" prevents dice modification. Because Han Solo's ability is a dice modification effect, "Midnight" prevents it from being used. Check the ruling thread.

    What are your thoughts on Vader riding an in-your-face Vermeil?

    An X-wing that trades only 1 agility for another 3 health, a crew slot, a gunner slot, and cheaper health upgrades? Yowza! I know I should be flying the base ARC, but I'm drooling over Jag + Torps/ Wolffe with some Sinker + 7th Gunner/ and a hyper-agressive Oddball. Best cross-factional rerelease of the game's lifetime right here!

    Hate Vader + Double Mod Soontir fit with a Crack Torp Tomax with pts for either a bid or bendy bombs! So long stale hyperspace meta! You will not be missed!

    Purple evades are dank

    Because every character needs a backstory to fit "small-world syndrome" (lol) in Phantom Menace, there was an entire scene devoted to various astromechs ("boyos", in Jar Jar's dialect) attempting to repair damage to the royal cruiser. They all were destroyed except for R2D2. R2-C4 was part of said troupe. So Artoo is close enough of a guess (especially since it is a unique r2 unit)! I may think it's a stupid movie, but scenes like that and the unawares incompetence of the general project are why the prequels are endearing to me.

    Well, considering how you fly him with a Reaper, I would say that you are building him just fine. Coordinate a defensive token and then take a lock on the optimal target. FCS allows you to have a TIE Defender-like defense on the next round when you further chase that target. ****, I thought my opinion was unpopular. Let's try that again. I think Elusive Maarek + coordinating Palp support is pretty good in extended.
