    Something like resistance Han pilot, lets you deploy anywhere on the field (with some restrictions), can be equipped by v-wings, delta-7s or eta-2s, they start docked to the ring and can deploy from it. The ring can only move when it has a ship docked, uses the docked ship's dial treating all basic maneuvers as speed one and substituting special maneuvers for a 90 or 180° turn on-site. When the docked ship gets fired, it's the ring that takes the hit and I believe once it's destroyed the ship can be automatically deployed from it. Maybe I made some mistake, but it's basically that. Oh, of course, the most important part: it's only legal in epic 😣

    From your conclusions I see that patience looks very good to you too. I am finding it the most interesting upgrade for this ship. I wonder how would it work for delta-7s. I guess it will be a similar feel.

    What about stealth device + fifth brother Whisper after decloaking and hitting an enemy? 3 green dice, a focus, a force, 2 evades.

    Is it so bad if the other 45% of the time you end up dead or almost dead (1 or 2 hull) and without stealth device? I don't think it's so terrible when you only have 3 hull.

    At least for those perfect bullseye shots predator will do the trick. For outside of bullseye attacks... patience maybe? So you don't run out of force and aren't hit. The other day in fly casual (I know, AI, but still) I found patience surprisingly flexible. Maybe using patience out of bullseye and shooting with 1 die to have more force could be considered as an "equivalent" of not shooting for one round while you take a lock for the next one. Building up the perfect attack.

    I don't think this is better. Soontir has a better offense, but he needs to be constantly looking for the bullseye to get his free focus, so both ships need the bullseye to work optimally. That alone kind of makes up for the worse weapon of the eta outside bullseye. Then, the eta's force means that whatever happens they will always have the chance of chaging at the very least an eye to an evade to keep their stealth device. Soontir has elusive, but that needs him to perform red maneuvers, not being able to use any of his 2 actions, and removes predator so the better gun is even more questionable. Etas don't have double reposition after moving but they also don't stress very often, while Soontir can get stuck in a bad spot with a stress token and not be able to get out of there with a blue maneuver without bumping. The eta is just more flexible and can avoid rocks or ships way more easily, plus the purple talon roll is huge.

    I think an easy fix for all this would be: 1. Get rid of the mod slot in the eta 2. Cost autoblasters depending on initiative (maybe the current cost up to I4) 3. Make R7-A4 (or whatever it's called) a bit more expensive, maybe necessary to drop the v-wing "Esk" config to 0 points? Whatever I think changing these three would make it fair enough. From my personal opinion I actually love etas right now and wouldn't change them, but still. They should not lose their talent, tho, that is a big difference with the delta. The cannon too, but that talent slot is so sweet.
  8. Right, cheaper, not the same. I just don't like playing vs T-70s, they are too tough and mobile. ARCS can last a bit, but can also be focused and destroyed pretty easily. Plus it's way easier to block them, so their cost looks more justifiable. T-70s tho...
  9. Se How on earth can the T-70 be the same cost than the ARC? They just don't die 😣

    Well, I really prefer the other 3 pilots for initiative and talent availability, but it looks like an alternative way to use Yoda rather than supporting other jedi. Worth a try.

    That is if he can catch them xD. ProTorp Wedge is I6 but repositioning is not his strength. These guys can end up anywhere. In the Shaak Ti + Yoda list you could use the ability for the 1st engagement and then run them as regular "aces". They are not as initiative dependent as the delta, since their ability is system phase. A pity Yoda can't have predator tho.
  12. Meanwhile the generic N1s keep very overpriced for what they do. I totally would chose a generic v-wing, A-wing or similar before them.
  13. Has anybody tried v-wings? How do they compare to torrents in a list like 2 jedi aces + 2 torrents/v-wings? Do they look strictly better? It just seems on paper that for only 2 points more you're getting a way more versatile ship that also isn't a crit magnet. Should I2 torrents drop to 24 points or v-wings go up a bit? I think the points difference is too small.
  14. I think 1 would be fine. I don't think that lose-bot situation would be normal, and apart from that it would be just fun to take a big ship and spend tons of points to make it into a real monster. Only to be totally destroyed by any other more realistic list, but still, it would be FUN, and that's the most important thing for me in a game. More than 8 ships, on the other hand, would be a pain to move, taking forever, and would benefit cheap swarms too much.

    Brilliant evasion is great with stealth device, and if you add a white evade they can be really hard to hit (they remind me of whisper with 5th brother and stealth device). I think sense is way better for etas than deltas because of when their ability triggers. It's ok for deltas but very good for the new chassis
  16. I tried in fly casual a list the other day: delta-7 Obi with CLT and sense, eta-2 Anakin with stealth device, predator and brilliant evasion, a generic LAAT and a 25 pt torrent. I really like how sense and the eta-2 ability work together, but better to keep sense on another ship since the eta needs its force. The main difference with the delta is that you have to think more where you want to end and it also sucks to finish your maneuver and not have the bullseye, since you don't get 2 actions. Anakin's ability is also better on delta-7 Obi than on himself (more red maneuvers). The LAAT rerolls really helped Anakin given the lack of white lock, and I think maybe predator was a bit of an overkill. Outmaneuver or daredevil would have been nice.
  17. What about predator instead of marksmanship? Wouldn't it be better even if you had to cut for example the cannon? Or drop to afterburners as you say. Ok I see what you are trying to do here: R7-A4, markmanship, autoblasters😅
  18. Is that so? I can see Odball and maybe Kickback chosen to fire missiles/use sync console because of initiative. Tucker for raw efficiency, one extra action for very cheap over the generics, but Swoop and Axe? Swoop is really bad, it can only use his ability himself when he dials a straight 3 or 4 maneuver (sucks), those red 3 banks.... They kill him. It is also difficult to use on other friends plus it stresses them. Axe, on the other hand, could enable some double modified attack from a friend, but to make this consistent you need to pass the focus when he attacks to a friend who already had a lock. The only possibility that makes sense to me is a bravo flight officer with passive sensors and some torpedoes but still, not that good. Axe's attack will probably miss, too.
  19. At this point you don't even need Hound anymore since you are not using patience. I would go for a generic LAAT maybe with Yoda crew? Although that paints a big target on him, but leaves 2 pt bid I think. Otherwise maybe 7th fleet gunner, although I really don't like that the LAAT never shoots. Cody gunner sadly doesn't fit well here given the jedi's higher initiatives.
  20. In case that doesn't work for you, they can also equip targeting computer and act like that lock action was always white =)
  21. I like Oddball with sync console and ion missiles. Even if his shot only makes the attacked ship to spend a focus or evade it seems worth it at 35, those ion missiles are so cheap now.
  22. I'm kind of sad the V-wing's linked action is a target lock, totally useless for Oddball. If it had been a focus though... Anyway, Oddball is already usable. Both the torrent version with sync console and optionally any missiles, and the ARC version with Kit Fisto and R4-P are really nice. Plus, regarding cost, ARC Oddball is only 1 point more than Jag for +2 initiative.
  23. The LAAT is very fun, it can be outfitted in many ways and has plenty of iconic crew, which is always nice 😃
  24. You're right, the poor N1s... I feel really bad for them, even the good ones (Ric, Ani) feel very clunky mainly because of their luck of k-turns. I really hope at least the others go down in price this month.
