  1. On a bit serious note - since you have such issues I'd advise cutting off things that don't help you deal with them or bring you happiness in these times. If these forums make you feel worse, perhaps spending time on something else would be healthier for you.
  2. Between the core heroes I'm most excited about Iron Man for sure. I've loved the suits ever since I watched the cartoons as a child and his playstyle seems like something I'd enjoy (slow buildup for large gains). After that I'm mainly looking forward to Thor (for the art, powerful attacks and Mjolnir), Dr. Strange (control, tricks) and potentially Wolverine (regeneration, savage attacks).

    Overlooked ships

    I agree on the IG-2000, the early meta was dominated by very efficient I5-6 pilots, which were both easier to play and bad matchup for expensive I4s. Nowadays the playing field feels more even and a lot more people play lower initiatives, so I hope we'll see someone good seriously try IGs. Also Autoblasters seem pretty good for them. Brobots (68) IG-88A [Aggressor Assault Fighter] (1) IG-2000 (2) Autoblasters (0) Jamming Beam Points: 71 (64) IG-88B [Aggressor Assault Fighter] (1) IG-2000 (2) Autoblasters (0) Jamming Beam Points: 67 (49) 4-LOM [G-1A Starfighter] (3) IG-88D (10) Advanced Sensors Points: 62 Total points: 200
  4. This one (yellow). It belongs to Scum and costs 60pts, but would be 45pts in a different faction. /S Actually I really dig this one and would like to see it released for Scum.

    Overlooked ships

    Right now I feel that IG-2000 is pretty overlooked. It isn't easy like I5-6 double repositioning Force users, but they have some interesting tricks up their sleeves and incredible stats. Also 4LOM doesn't see much play, although he's still a menace. In that vein the humble I1 TIE Defenders are really solid fielded with PalpCarrier or accompanying ace (Soontir). 1 or 2 pts bid makes you nigh unblockable, but you have to play without perfect information like so many are used to.
  6. This would be ideal and with only regen droids it wouldn't be that hard to keep track of dealt damage. Problem is the wording. How do you keep track of the damage? How do you count shields regened before threshold? Remaining Shields - spent charges? And there will be this weird specific scenario where Spare Parts Canister charge is spent but both players are arguing what it was spent on. If regen is a part of most competitive lists in six months, FFG will make it more expensive. Higher cost would make the ship itself higher pts bunker, but you wouldn't be able to afford other bells and whistles and/or a huge bid.
  7. Have you watched the first gameplay demo? It would answer most of not all of your questions.
  8. I believe that we will get more boxed sets around the (nowadays) well known teams and their most characteristic enemies: X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy and Fantastic Four seem like a safe bet.
  9. It didn't occur to me that someone could take my statement seriously.
  10. So last season with Resistance instead of Rebels?
  11. How would you round out the list? 7b+R2 on both Jedi, ProTorps+Passives on Anakin is 198. Do Plasma Torps and bid or Sense feel better?
  12. I agree with you. Everyone is all over Ric, but I didn't like him at all in my tests so far. The N1 imho isn't built to be a knife fighter with it's lack of good turn around options, but has performed much better as a torpedo carrier that disengages and turns around using white maneuvers or Tallons in safe distance, with the free Evade keeping you safe while you get away. Anakin is the easiest way to get Torps double modded and Passives are a must for I4. Juke isn't that efficient imho. I'm interested in seeing the upcoming Y-wing in that role, as I feel that with Force gunner option it will be really good as a Torpedo carrier, probably better than N1.
