Unofficial Imdaar List Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm not too keen on the etiquette of secrecy you may pose toward your list, but I'm hoping to see some more lists for Imdaar that I might make me blatantly rip it or decide to include a similar strategy in it. I know there are groups who play together here who may want to maintain secrecy, that's fine. I'm posting the one I am 90% sure to take and we can go from there. No need to explain lists, just post yours and figure out others yourself. Can post final as well, if you wish.

Chewie - PTL, Nien Nunb

Dagger - Adv sensor

Dagger - Adv sensor

Final

Chewie

Corran Horn - FCS

Blount - VI, Ion Pulse

On phone hope numbers aren't off!

Tarn+R4-D6

Red

Dagger + AdvS

Dagger + FCS

A little weird for XXBB, but I've found it to work quite well. Perhaps two AdvS would be better, but I only have one card, so...yeah.

Final: no idea!

Hmm I played against a build like that on Vassal earlier, swapping the R4-D6 and running 2 AdvS might be a little better,

Also...earlier today? I'm CDL on Vassal--could have been me! Maybe!

 

Also, for the final round, I'm thinking

Blackmoon Squadron

Airen Cracken

ORS + MF title

Gold Squad + ICT+R4-D6 (five hull, one agi, and my only Phantom control--gotta have some protection!)

Oh. Finally a thread about Imdaar Alpha lists before the final round.

I've been leaning towards this.

Biggs

Grey Squadron + R2D6 + Draw Their Fire

Dagger + Advanced Sensors

Dagger + Fire Control Systems OR Blue + Advanced Sensors

100 or 99

Before finals:

 

Soontir: PTL, stealth Dev.

Carnor: PTL, Targeting Comp.

3x Academy Pilots

 

(If I get the honour of) Finals:

 

Delta

Echo

Soontir

 

No surprises on upgrades. I'm not a fan of big point sinks like the Delta or Echo, but at least I know what I'll be up against. Soontir just because I have experiance flying him so he can zip around and assist Delta or Echo depending on how bad I fly them, and the fact that Rebels are pretty points heavy with the E-wing as well.

I'm convinced you'll go up against a YT in the finals. So Soontir might not be the best choice.

Planning on just going XXBAY+R2, decided to not concern myself too much with the finals, will be happy to make it to the semis and get a ship, after that it's all just gravy.

I'm considering a couple builds... I'll probably decide on the morning of :P

 

Here's one I built so I can use the new goodies from the Transport I haven't used yet...

"Hobbie" Klivian (25), R3-A2 (2)
Tarn Mison (23), R5-P9 (3)
Garven Dreis (26)
Rookie Pilot (21)

Total: 100

View in Yet Another Squad Builder

 

Hopefully Garven can pass his focus to Hobbie (who will be TLing most of the time to shed the stress from R3-A2) or Tarn so he can regen his shields.

Personally, the finals with the Tie defendr are gonna hurt... i just keep thinking the darn thing is overrated. 30 pts at PS1?

Keep in mind with 6HP and 3 agility it will survive for a long time and is one of the best tanking ships, the issue in my opinon is being required to use it and a Phantom, one wouldn't be hard to fit into a list but both will be

I don't understand why people put so much effort into finial round lists, and only make one. If you're in second for the finial round, your opponent picks which faction you get, so you could very well get one you didn't plan for. Also, if you're in that match you've already won 2nd pick, you've already won a hell of a prize. I know some people have a strong preference, but out of 4 ships you only really want 1?

Some people REALLY like winning, I guess.

To add an imperial list! I'm thinking...

Turr Phennir + Veteran Instincts

Royal Guard Pilot + PTL

Royal Guard Pilot + PTL

Omicron Shuttle + Darth Vader

Or any of the more swarm like shuttle lists I like to play.

Finals, well, I've got some fun ideas. But yesterday I played against an HLC Tie Defender, and it was awesome. So my imp list might change.

Here's what I'm thinking:

 

Wedge Antilles (31)
X-Wing (29), Swarm Tactics (2)
 
Wes Janson (30)
X-Wing (29), Veteran Instincts (1)
 
Ibtisam (39)
B-Wing (28), Heavy Laser Cannon (7), Opportunist (4)
 
It is EXTREMELY heavy on offense.  I'm considering taking the HLC off of Ibby in order to give Wedge a Shield Upgrade and Janson a Hull Upgrade, but I'm not sure yet.
 
Janson shoots first, stripping focus/evades.  From there, I can use either Wedge or Ibby at a 9 to follow up and hopefully kill something (preferably Wes + Wedge kills something first, then Ibby can lay some heavy smackdown with 5 attack dice at range 3 to kill/seriously wound something else important.

So I have a dilemma.  I want to try an imperial list for this tourney since I did rebel at both store championships.

 

I've been doing REALLY good with this list on vassal, 19-6 to be exact.

 

Kath + HLC + Seismic + Predator

Bounty Hunter + Gunner

Academy

 

Problem is that predator isn't legal yet obviously.  I'm debating between taking PTL which would be the closest substitute, albeit inferior in most cases, or taking a recon specialist so my offense goes down but my defense goes up.

 

Thoughts?

Well, if you attend multiple tournaments over the weekend you don't want the same ship twice, and personally the z-95 is the only one I don't want to win, but most of the excitement is probably just for using the new ships, and the satisfaction of winning

Swap the Gunner and HLC, put Expert Handling on Kath, and bump the AP to Obsidian.

As to my list, for the nonfinals I would run:

Krassis + Rebel Captive + Ion Cannon

Backstabber

Night Beast

RGI + PtL + TC

And for the final (which I will probably never make) I have several builds, none of which are set in stone. Since I KNOW everyone will put a Falcon on the table I am thinking of not pulling a high Phantom low Defender but doing the exact opposite.

Well, maybe not as good, but you could just switch Predator for Rebel Captive...

I have done some test games with all sorts of different combinations.  Rexler is really good, but its hard to get good support for him considering that a low PS Phantom is so easy to destroy.  Vessery is not really worth it unless you go with bomber support, and then its hard to fit the Phantom in...

 

I've found it easier to make effective lists with either Echo or Whisper.  With Echo, you need stuff that hits hard to mess with your opponent's target priority.  With Whisper, you need stuff that helps her 'tank' (assuming you take Recon Spec + Sensor Jammer).  A couple of Academy TIEs can be useful to deny the Falcon's actions or you could try Jax (but he's relatively easy to kill...).

 

It certainly is harder to come up with a good list with Imperials for the Top 2 match...

I'm leaning heavily towards this:

 

Wes + Veteran Instincts + R2

Wedge + PTL + R2 + Advanced Proton

Hobbie + R2-D6 + Oppotunist

 

Works exceptionally well on the initial joust and hits like a freight train, which is good as X-wings are notoriously a bit fragile. I realize PTL is often better than Opportunist, but Opportunist works for a psychological advantage, often making some rebel ships focus instead of TL because of the extra die.

 

As for the finals I'm thinking of this for Rebel:

 

Bandit

Etahn

Han + Marksmanship + Gunner + Mercenary Co-pilot

 

Plan is to use Han to dish out lots and lots of Crits between the co-pilot, marksmanship, and Etahn. Etahn will spend a lot of time evading and chipping in, while the bandit works on crashing into things.

 

Empire finals:

 

Delta Squadron + Ion Cannon

Whisper + Veteran Instincts + Advanced Cloak Device

Fel + PTL

 

Nothing fancy or special here, just deny arcs and try to take them down.
