      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Michiel's Let's Discuss: 'Dutch' Vander #10

11 posts in this topic

Hello again X-wing fans!

 

I think it's time for the Y-wing, no? This week we take a look at the incredible 'Dutch' Vander, throwing around target locks and boosting with the amazing R7-T1. This astromech made the Y-wing a real force to reckon with.

 

I'm coming up on 400 subs, btw - wow! Thanks again for the sharing of my video's, it really helps so keep it up!

 

Enjoy!

When I run rebels I find it incredibly hard not to make dutch with R7-T1 and an ion cannon my first pick every time.
Gives out tasty buffs and has board control and has a chance to either close or arc dodge? Yes please!

He works well with ships that want to spend their actions on maneuvers or focusing (lets say A-wings here) which is what I really like running so he fits well and does so much.

I'm considering this list at the moment-

 

 "Dutch" Vander , R7-T1, Ion Cannon Turret 

 
Jake Farrell , A-Wing Test Pilot, Chardaan Refit , Outmaneuver , Push the Limit
 
Corran Horn, R2 Astromech , Fire-Control System , Marksmanship
 
just see see how much I can get out of the 'vander buff' build.

Dutch is a solid force multiplier and if equipped with an Ion Cannon turret (why would you take anything else?), a good board controller. If you are considering taking a Y-wing with an ICT, you should always consider if you can squeeze in Dutch for a few points extra.

He is nice, but 28-31pts is to expensive for a ship that is capped at 1 dmg per turn if you ask me.
If i want board control I'd rather take Gold or Roark, so I can still fit 4 decent ships in a squad.
