favorite wave 1 fighters?

Recommended Posts

What do you think based on what we know about wave 1 fighters so far will be the shining star, askin all my min maxers out there!

And what is your favorite fighter from the wave.

Personnally though i love the ties and the X wings my Fave has to go to the interceptors, folliwed closely by the B wings.

though i know the counter2 on those interceptors is gonna be tight im worried about the very squishy 3 health bar. Is everyone just gonna use advances?

And the B wing speed 2 is kind of depressing, makes sense but I at least wish they woulda got the extra health indstead of the Y wings.

I am actually excited to try out Tie Bombers.

 

At speed of 4 Tie bombers are the fastest Bomber unit in the game, which could be good in attacking Capital ships.

Having Corrupter upgrade on a VSD also makes the Tie Bomber more effective, which would be a upgrade I would love to try out with tie Bombers

I'm looking forward to trying this combo out and see if it can be an effective, with the help of some fighter escorts of course :)

Bombers and B-wings for me. The bombers have epic alpha strike potential, or can act as a solid rearguard. They have preformed well in every game so far.

 

I haven’t actually managed to use B-wings well in a game yet, but once the secret is unlocked I think they will be epic.....I keep thinking I have worked it out, but there is always something that prevents them getting those coveted consecutive attacks......

I'm excited for all the fighters but bwing are what I want to be excited about :)

Tie Bombers look awesome though with Corrupter & Major Rhymer will make them a huge threat so I'm guessing Awings are going to be used to counter them :)

So I'm most excited about awings :)

A wings are the top dogs too me, best anti capital fighter without bomber, and arguably better than x wings at it too. They have the crazy speed to get anywhere, and with counter they can defend themselves really well.

Its weird but if you just wanted a single efficient fighter to spam the a wing is probably gonna be the best for it, since its a better jack of all trades than the x wing. Still, x wings really help y wings and b wings, so they will have a role thankfully.

corrupter bombers with select upgrades such as rhymer and liasons with Tarkin chilling on another ship sounds like it could be a jolly good time (not for the opponent)

 

 

also really dig how potent the interceptors are (albeit squishy) and look forward to pairing them with howlrunner

 

 

for rebels, I really like the X-wing from my core set experience and I'm thinking of augmenting them with Ys

 

my favorite ship has always been the B-wing, though, especially in X-wing miniatures where they are by far my fighter of choice so I'll be trying to get them to work as well

Not sure I agree about the A-wing. They have less firepower against fighters, less against capitals (at least unshielded caps since x-wings cause crits), are less resilient and lack Escort.

They are better for pure dogfighting due to Counter (x-wings hit harder, but no counter) and are quicker. I feel the X-wings are better all rounders though.

I think the X-wing is going to continue to shine as the best all rounder. All 3 of the other Rebel fighters lean in one direction to stand out.

 

When it comes to Imperial fighters, the Tie Interceptor is better at the job I feel ties are best suited for. Killing fighters.

A-wings have 3/4 chances to get a hit against capital ships.

Xwings have 5/8 to cause a hit result, one of them, being double hit, and another a crit.

 

Xwings are escorts and all rounders. They are imho, the backbone. The problem with A-wings, is that boosting to  engag into fighters, means that you wil get shot by Anti Squadron fire from capital ships withouth consequences.

Tie Fighters do accomplish one essential "Tie" role more efficiently than interceptors, however, and that's being used as cannon fodder :P
