How do you defeat Phantoms?

31 posts in this topic

 

When your opponent looks down, you pick up his Phantom and swallow it.

I would not recommend this technique unless you practiced first at home.... it does have pointy wings.

Has anyone had any luck countering the Phantom as Imperials without using another Phantom?

 

I like running Imperials, but it seems you only have a few options for countering Phantoms:

 

  • Vader in an Advanced - but then you're stuck with a 2 attack ship
  • Maarek w/ VI - Might as well use Vader
  • Mauler Mithel w/ VI - would probably need an Engine Upgrade to make this work
  • Howlrunner w/ VI - Kinda seems like a waste
  • Soontir Fel - Always an excellent ship, but weaker against the Falcon which is becoming prevalent again.
  • Rexler w/ VI - Can definitely do the job, though costs a lot of points.
  • Rymer w/ VI + Flechette? - Maybe?
  • Kath or Fett w/ VI - Can definitely do the job, though I don't like losing Expert Handling

Is there hope without waiting for the Decimator?

I defeated a decked out whisper with two firesprays, but just barely, and only because I had perfect attack rolls thanks to multiple upgrades, and his defense rolls were below average.
