  1. I've had good luck using it on CLT Deltas.
  2. Sidious is criminally underused and any list that includes him gets a thumbs up in my book. Pairing with "Matchstick"? Good! Any list with "Tucker"? Good! I'm not sold on have Sheev's true self on board with "Wolffe" though. He's the heavy hitter of the list and doesn't need more reasons for your opponent to zero in on him. I swapped out Barriss for R2-D2 as the Palp carrier but a 104th Battalion Pilot will also work but will eat up the remaining points. "Matchstick" (43) Dorsal Turret (3) R4-P Astromech (4) “Wolffe” (50) Ahsoka Tano (12) R2 Astromech (3) “Tucker” (29) R2-D2 (35) Dorsal Turret (3) Chancellor Palpatine (14) Total: 196 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0
  3. While two points more expensive than the Squad Leader/Tac Officer combination Palpatine may be a better choice for coordinating. There's no stress for the action (Never mind, neither would stress) and a Force token to spend on turns you choose not to coordinate. Plus you can flip to Sidious who is soooooo freaking fun. As for what else to include for the build, the ion cannon turret makes a useful dead-rat-on-a-stick to wave at would be attackers. Beyond that season to taste. R2-D2 (35) Ion Cannon Turret (5) Chancellor Palpatine (14) Total: 54
  4. R2-D2 with shield upgrade, ion turret, and Palpatine is only two more points than 104th Battalion Pilot with Palpatine. Oh that I might be able to fly backward.
  5. Up until quite recently I had the same issue with both Synchronized Console and Battle Meditation. Once the upgrades were in the build I felt I needed to construct the list around "the gimmick", something that at best would trigger twice a game and leave me disappointed if not done perfectly. The potential in each card was there but just ... lacking. I think the trick is to use SC to support an already decent list in order to more organically take advantage of situations as they arise. The resulting squad is less vulnerable than gimmicky lists to falling apart if the linchpin piece is destroyed. I plan on giving this one a go this week so we'll see how well this cockamamie concept holds up. Plo Koon (44) R2-A6 (6) Delta-7B (19) Synchronized Console (2) Blue Squadron Protector (28) Dedicated (1) Concussion Missiles (6) Synchronized Console (2) Blue Squadron Protector (28) Dedicated (1) Concussion Missiles (6) Synchronized Console (2) Ric Olié (42) Daredevil (3) Fire-Control System (2) R2-C4 (5) Total: 197 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0 I'm leaving some room till we find out what Foresight clocks in at.
  6. I'm reeeeeeeally looking forward to B-Wing HLC squads making runs against huge ships. It's as if that's what they're made for or something. And give those X-Wings some ion torpedoes if they're going to ride along side the Bs.
  7. So stop attacking my huge ships and I'll stop venting it. Gesh!
  8. Skilled bombardier still requires you to use a template. So the Y-Wing could set either a 1 straight or 2 straight template between the back nubs with SB and that's it. Still handy though.
  9. Yep, but with a smaller ship that has better crit resistance and nearly the same health. And proton bombs if we're lucky.
  10. Fingers crossed for: Plo Koon - CLT, Brilliant Evasion, R3 "Sinker" 2 Red Squadrons - Seventh Fleet Gunner, R4 If I can also squeeze C-3PO onto Sinker I'll be a happy, happy man.
  11. The participation prizes are amazing. As someone who occasionally flys Plo, color me jealous of those able to go.
  12. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2019/9/4/a-duel-in-the-stars/
  13. Fun idea but unfortunately I already have a backlog of X-Wing stuff I want to pick up that's only getting longer that I want to snag first. Not to say I won't pick up a Republic deck in a moment of weakness.
  14. Ran something vaguely similar to this one casual night with Poe and Targeting Synchonizer. Yeah, it was unpleasant. If you don't mind losing a touch of durability I found there were times I really wished I had Swarm Tactics in both my generics. As the game progressed there were rounds I could have easily chained I6 attacks but ST wasn't on the "middle" ship.
  15. Well, that depends. We're not privy to the new stuff coming out between now and Q1 2021 that Imperial or Rebel only players may not have access to. Plus $20 annually for new upgrades and pilots for existing ships is something I'd be will to do to support the game and this particular line of products.
  16. Thematically and talent wise Sidious and Anakin (Aethersprite) mesh beautifully. I've toyed with possible lists built around these two but have never been entirely satisfied with the results. Right out the gate is the fact the a bare bones I2 ARC and CLT on Anni clocks in at 123 points and my analysis paralysis just grows from there. What's worked for those who've tried this combo? Or should this wait till a theoretically upcoming R2-D2 Y-Wing with a crew slot?
  17. I'd be happy with ... つ ◕◕ ༽つ SUMMON BTL-B Y-Wing preview ༼ つ ◕◕ ༽つ
  18. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-Wings are back!!!! My God that makes me irrationally happy.
  19. I ran this overly thematic list last night for a quick casual game and I'm pretty sure my win was a pure fluke of the dice. Partisan Renegade (43) Collision Detector (6) Magva Yarro (8) Saw Gerrera (9) Hull Upgrade (5) Pivot Wing (0) Cavern Angels Zealot (41) Deadman’s Switch (2) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Cavern Angels Zealot (41) Deadman’s Switch (2) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Cavern Angels Zealot (41) Deadman’s Switch (2) Servomotor S-Foils (0) Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0
  20. It's listed as covering multiplayer but that doesn't mean they can't slip some huge ship fun in as well.
  21. Crossing my fingers for an unannounced and unlikely Republic Y-Wing preview to get slipped into the stream.

    Obi-Wan

    I've used Obi-Wan a lot, possibly a bit obsessively. His talent is snazzy but personally I only make use of it one or two times a game. To me it's the the extra force token that makes him worth the three points over Plo Koon. It helps get over the mental barrier against spending tokens allowing for certain force powers to be utilized while still keeping a nice cushion. It's just my tastes, but I would flip configs for Obi-Wan and Asoka. Obi-Wan will have a much easier time lining up a bullseye as well as sliding the fragile Aethersprite versions out of opposing arcs. And just to toss this out there, give Lone Wolf Wolffe a go sometime.
  23. Just a thought. Gray Squadron Bomber (31) Ion Cannon Turret (5) R4 Astromech (2) Shield Upgrade (4) Proton Bombs (5) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) Gray Squadron Bomber (31) Ion Cannon Turret (5) R4 Astromech (2) Shield Upgrade (4) Proton Bombs (5) Veteran Turret Gunner (8) Blue Squadron Pilot (41) Shield Upgrade (4) Blue Squadron Pilot (41) Shield Upgrade (4) Total: 200 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0
