  1. Being one of your locals I am all in on this as well. I love the I5 A's, I just haven't escaped from my Gunboats just yet.
  2. I am just curious now if this can be used to see if there is any validity to the salt water tests. It would be preferable that it would disprove that method just to shut people up and so they can't try to quickly and easily get a fix on their dices' biases. Also, while physical defects are probably fairly easy to identify, I just can't seem myself buying a caliper and a magnifying glass, but I know so many people that would...
  3. This feels especially true when the author comes back with well thought and researched defenses. Definitely much more academic and professional than some thesis/article defenses I have seen.
  4. The list I have been flying is: Hera Syndulla (VCX-100) (73) Trick Shot (2) Dorsal Turret (2) Chewbacca (4) Nien Nunb (5) Shield Upgrade (3) Benthic Two Tubes (47) Lando Calrissian (2) Perceptive Copilot (8) Pivot Wing (0) Saw Gerrera (52) Tactical Officer (2) Pivot Wing (0) Total: 200 I have played 3 or 4 games with it now and have only lost a ship in one game. I will often Lando with Benthic to hopefully grab an evade or two, then Saw will coordinate a focus to Benthic who can pass one back to Saw or pass it on to Hera. Hera obviously uses her ability to be where she needs to be. If she is taking shots she will probably have a reinforce. People have either gone all in on Hera, in which case she arc dodges or bails and the U-Wings chew them up, or they go all in on a multiple token Benthic who I honestly don't care that much if he dies because he will have set up some big shots early.
  5. Wave 4 is going to be released June 6 according to the latest article.
  6. I have been looking at a couple of those with a slightly higher initiative ship with Synced Console to guarantee the lower one's target locks. Something like: "Jag" (49) Clone Commander Cody (3) Synchronized Console (2) Gold Squadron Trooper (25) Homing Missiles (5) Synchronized Console (2) Gold Squadron Trooper (25) Homing Missiles (5) Synchronized Console (2) Gold Squadron Trooper (25) Homing Missiles (5) Synchronized Console (2) Luminara Unduli (44) Calibrated Laser Targeting (6) Total: 200
  7. Simplified even more, it comes down to burden of execution. I would imagine that recognizing who has the burden of execution in each game is on par with knowing your win condition.
  8. This is also correct, he couldn't have known about 2e. I had almost all my stuff there as well and offered to let him play something else. He declined. For all I know he was enjoying just raking in tickets for no real effort, but he did still seem miserable.
  9. I saw this at worlds last year. Guy flew in from Mexico I believe, only had Ghost/Fenn in his case. Went nowhere near day 2 and played Hangar Bay. Since he only had his one list, everyone was just straight scooping before they even played him because they all had fun lists and didn't want to play against that any more. He seemed miserable I and felt bad for him, but at the same time he chose to bring that to the last 1.0 Worlds where no one even cared anymore.
  10. I love that the Passive Sensor upgrade shows a picture of a TIE/FO, but they can't take the card... Would have been nice on Midnight to either get a target lock on another I6 that moved after them.
  11. What I hear you saying here is that there is no real magic bullet right now, that the game is very much rock paper scissors, which I think is a very good thing. I don't think there is a wrong or correct answer here, but like you said, play the one with the most practice.
  12. Honestly, this sounds like the best idea. I would be even more encouraged to go to a kit event and FFG is still getting paid for it.
