They are saving us from the permanent Fel/Whisper/Vader meta. I agree with them on that.

 

No, that's because the Raider is being delayed, Whisper + Fel + Vader will be inevitable once it arrives.  :D

Ready Player 2

3 Y's is a lot crazier than 4, and top 2 was ALL Y-wings. Unhinged Kavil with seismics and two chaser pups. That's awesome.

 

Oops I had that wrong. It was 4 Y's. Will fix momentarily.

 

Edit: it was a 4x AUTOBLASTER TURRET list for #2.

4 Y-wings? Those crazy Germans.

 

Ummm....Belgians.

 

 

Ooops.

 

 

Yeah... they're closer to the French than the Germans. Good people.

Not sure do you really believe this or it's a joke?

What about Wedge, Corran, Keyan, Wes, Xizor, Boba, Kath, Bossk, Cobra, Rexler, Juno, Redline? Dogfight! Turrets kill many exciting lists, because they are too easy and undercosted.

Delayed? But yeah that is a question, what current expansion/waves will be out by GenCon and Worlds and will all the new expansion be permitted in those tournaments?

None of those guys can really hold back Fel. Not joking and a few others have made similar statements. Turrets really are holding back those 3.

 

well no

 

as Juggler said, the delayed raider is holding back Vader

 

turrets didn't do jack **** to discourage Whisper, since he was the other half of the previous iteration of chiri + soontir. They were just the only thing that could compete (apart from BBBBZ and panic attack and whatever could stress the phantom before it shot, ofc). The errata is holding her back now.

 

and soontir, well hey there he is...everywhere!

 

 

I understand the fears surrounding old whisper and new Vader, but Soontir...why? For all his amazing shenanigans, he's still a 3 attack die ship and he's still crippled upon block or upon passing through terrain (even the focus from debris represents a sharp downgrade from his action spam). Not to mention his dependency on PTL leaves him very vulnerable to stress mechanics, that much has certainly not changed.

 

I don't understand the mindset that turrets are somehow the guardians of the competitive meta. From what we've seen, they are the competitive meta :P

Countermeasures?! Wow.

My thoughts exactly. Although considering the number of warthogs they were facing, it actually seems reasonable.

I read this insightful post on FFG:

There are 4 things you can do when you think fat turrets are dominating the X-wing meta and you are unhappy:

1) Play the fat turret and dominate the meta.

2) Don't play fat turret and try to change the meta.

3) Complain about the meta and do nothing.

4) Quit.

Looks like they picked option 2.
