A potential update to L-B-W

Recommended Posts

Contingency planning for when Biggs buys the moisture farm. 

Also I'd happily have Wes boost outside the bubble to land a Stress Shot on the Opponent's High Threat Target. It also leaves the minute chance that once they see Wes outside the zone they break their focus away from Biggs and give him an extra turn of regen.

Let me just point out that Mangler Cannons have no place in a DTF discussion, as the effect is optional to begin with, and merely changes an existing hit to a crit.

The user of the Mangler is essentially the one who decides whether it hits the intended target, or the DTF user.

I'm necro-ing myself, rather than posting anew, as I've seen an interesting idea in the Squad subforum: 

 

Use a B-Wing with Jan Ors alongside Biggs! 

Jan is great on B-Wings, as Evade Tokens bolster their poor damage mitigation

Jan is great near Biggs, as Evade Tokens on him are just super

B-Wing Pilots are great candidates for The Ace.

I tried the below and it worked pretty well:

 

Biggs

  R2F2

  Experimental Interface

Luke

  R2-D2

  Lone Wolf

Wedge

  R5-P9

  Predator

 

The Lone Wolf worked surprisingly well.  I can split my deployment with Biggs protecting Wedge and Luke on his lonesome.  Or I can deploy in a group then split Luke off after the first pass.  Or I can keep them in formation and have my opponent decide if he wants to face Lone Wolf Luke or Wedge for end of game. 

 

Oh yeah, a +1 Agility Biggs with a focus does last a lot longer than any other combo I have tried, including DTF Luke.

I faced this list a couple weeks back.

 

Jan Ors Hwk

Wingman

Ion Turret

Kyle Katarn

 

Luke

Swarm Tactics

R2D2

 

Biggs

R2F2

Experimental Interface

 

So Biggs would Focus and then pop EI for R2-F2

gain a stress

 

Luke would focus

 

Jan would focus

 

Wing man would remove the stress from Biggs

 

Luke would pass ST to Biggs and Jan would pass an extra attack Die to Biggs

Jan would gain Stress.

 

This made quick work of my Soontir, Turd, Echo list.

 

He ended up 4-0 and in 2nd due o MOV (we had no cut)

6 points for 1 extra green die seems like a lot to pay. It also stresses you.

Well, it's not quite that simple.

It's a 24% increase in price, but gives a 50% increase in expected damage mitigation. On Biggs.

The stress-thing is a bit problematic, granted, but X-Wings like to slow-roll anyway.

Besides; the only Red on the dial is the Koiogran, so you're still granted the ability to pull a surprise runner, if you like.

 

Works very well with Wingman, to boot, but that removes one of the potential DTF + Regen ships from your fleet, unless you can squeeze in another 19 points.

I tried Wes+VI+R3-A2, Biggs+R4-D6, and Keynan+Opportunist+FCS+HLC, and it didn't do to badly, but I think I'd replace the HLC with E2+Jan and perhaps DTF instead of VI on Wes. That leaves me with 4 points. Engine Upgrade for Wes or Shield Upgrade for Biggs, perhaps?
