    Template Tray w/lid

    I want to like these, but no r3 ruler space, and the arrangement of the templates are weird (e.g. the type of template's are not grouped together). Maybe still make sense if you love the idea of using a lunchbox though.

    Template Tray w/lid

    +1, have seen 5-6 different variations and HighBridge looks the best IMO. I'd recommend non-painted, don't like the paint. Also they have a fehlder-mini size that has 2x smaller trays room for misc tokens. I have an don't even have but have the mini, its great.

    Opinion: Deltas are being underrated

    Yeah, I've steered clear of any delta+arc170 support lists since it seems like too high a constraint on your flying. "In Arc" is fine but side-arc seems too weird on ships with different dials.

    I mean there are a lot of negative comments out there about the delta's, more than positive. Totally agree that a week isn't enough time for a firm conclusion, but no reason to not discuss what we think in the mean time. To be fair, if I had my **** together I'd be painting my deltas rather than trying to convince internet strangers they are good, but that's a big conditional.

    I like the Idea of Luminara/R2/no config. Relives the load on her tokens for her ability and decreases her target priority which I think would be high. I would want more guns in the rest of the list though to make up for the offense loss. I think I like R5 better on other delta's. Need more testing though. Not sure I see a major synergy with Lum/SD. Her tokens and Obi's support are great for sustained durability, but they don't to a crazy amount to prevent a single damage getting through if the attacker(s) are focused.
  6. Think about it like this Being competitive takes play time If you are actually playing a ship you buy 10 times or more (needed to be competitive anyway) the cost/hour becomes very low for IRL entertainment Realistic alternatives to playing xwing are all way more expensive (listed cheapest to most expensive) Whiskey (decent whiskey anyway) Cocaine Hookers Video Games made by EA MTG Sports cars Children Marriage So perhaps the real question is, can you afford to not buy every faction in the game?

    I understand the alure of same PS, but also seems like a lot-of synergy between Obi and Lum, and different PS is easier to handle for 3ship than for 4ship. She always focuses and Obi always replenishes her if she get targeted, shes knocks down crits or forces token spend if he gets targeted. Would cost a droid but seems worth it.

    Yeah but what's unique that makes that better for the Infiltrator than the delta. As far as I can tell, Delta's are the one's with the asymmetric advantage due to FTC not being affected by clouds.

    Still don't understand. You mean with the title? Clouds still block a decloak boost/br. What maneuvering advantage does it have over any other ship? Does it have something boosting obstructed attacks to offset the +1 agi and blank -> evade? Haven't looked at it much TBH.

    I dunno, being able to fly into gas and repo to the other side seems like a good trick. How does infiltrator ignore them?

    Opinion: Deltas are being underrated

    All agreed, but I would say Force+FTC is still a lot better than Autothrusters+PT. AutoPT doesn't get a token when stressed or overlapping, AutoPT has to do a blue or loose option of mods after being stressed, AutoPT can't double mod, AutoPT can't repo when Ionized or after flying through gas.

    A rock or gas cloud yeah, debris no due to stress. Actually fly into gas and repo to the other side (if your template clears) isn't a bad strategy if you want to turtle

    No, Ion says "you may only focus during the perofrm action step". FTC is after maneuver, so before the perform action step, so you can FTC then focus.

    Opinion: Deltas are being underrated

    A JK.CLT needs a 15% BE rate to match a RSE T70 in terms of efficiency, a Delta 7B needs to net +2 hp or damage in its life due to Force + FTC to make up for the cost difference between it and a Heroic T70, and starts to destroy it afterwards. I think a good pilot can average more than 2hp/dmg deficit per game considering all the flexibility. I haven't give specific ace comparisons much though since I'm flying 4x. 4x Heroic RSE (or 3 + Jess) isn't played much but has a high top-table rate when its is, took 1st in swiss my local 50 man HT, so that's a fine benchmark for me.

    4x Aethersprite Brainstorm

    I mean yeah agreed on 7B attack but (slight advantage * 0.6 + significant advantage * 0.4) + reduced dependency on a token for defense + reduced chance of needing to spend token on attack = a significant power increase, worth the 9pts I think Yeah but that doesn't mean there wasn't opportunity cost. 1.5 opportunity's/per game to use his ability per game seems low, did you fly him with multiple ships that usually focus?
