What new ships would you like to see and play with X-wing?

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I think they have enough ships between Rebellion and Imperial that they could pause new ship releases for a while and do a balance pass and add some extra pilots for a bunch of existing ships.  They could also do a few tweaks here and there beyond just the ships too - I'd love to see them break the pilot skills into Elite Pilot Talents and generic Pilot Skills that any ship could take.  Deadeye and Adrenaline Rush, for example, don't really need to be restricted - a generic Scimitar Squadron Tie Bomber should be able to take Deadeye, and a Gold Squadron Y should be able to take Adrenaline Rush as a one point upgrade.

I would argue against those 2 particular options, IF ANY generics now currently get EPTs I would give them to the higher PS versions, AKA Gammas and Grays (Also Reds, Storms, Blackmoons and Onyxs, okay maybe Shadows as well but I don't really think a Phantom needs it)  Basically I feel the ships that have to pay 2 points for a 2 PS jump should get a "bonus" to make them more on par with other ships, Ties and Z-95s being the biggest example, you only pay 1 point but get 2 PS (same rate as VI) These ships I understand not giving an EPT slot too for their generics(because then you effectively get PS5-6 ships for 2 points more than a PS 1-2)

I'm not saying to give EPTs to every ship - I'm suggesting that FF has enough ships in the game that they should pause for a year and do a balance pass.  Knock some points off of the Tie Advanced, base E-Wing, etc.  Bring out a few more generic ships while they are at it, etc.  It would be like adding new ships to the game, only not increasing the SKU count.

 

While they are busy re balancing the system, I'd recommend that they take the Elite Pilot Talents and break them into 2 groups.  Call one group Pilot upgrades - any ship can take a pilot upgrade.  Pilot upgrades would include upgrades like Dead Eye, AR, Elusiveness, and other current EPTs that don't see much use.  Frequently used EPTs like Push the Limits and Vet Instincts would remain EPTs.
