Interesting combos

Recommended Posts

So we've played a few games where instead of factions we can create squads with any ship we want. Would love to hear some of the more interesting combos when one is allowed to have rebels/imperial/scum on the same team. Especially if it's super-trolly (like phantom/Mara stressing everyone out and never decloaking)

Captain Jonas

2X Cartel Spacer, Heavy Syck, Mangler

2X Cartel Spacer, Heavy Syck, Ion

 

Or

 

Jonas, Hull, Determination

Serissu, Heavy, Mangler

2X Tansarii Pt Vet, Heavy Mangler, and either Calculation (for double crit potential) or Draw Their Fire (to try to keep Jonus and Serissu alive)

Had tons of fun with Boba + Han crew card "Shaddup back there!"

 

But overall the craziest combo I saw was any stygium phantom with a K4 crew member.  Talk about brutal!

 

Our group and FLGS run 59 point mandatory 2 ships of different factions, all other faction restrictions removed from cards.  Tons of fun!  Until of course someone came up with that Phantom...

Using C-3P0 or Palpatine  with Lando crew is a bad idea, except in certain edge cases.

 

The only case where there is an advantage to using C-3P0 with Lando's roll is if you will be defending with 3 dice. In that case, you're more likely to guess correctly on Lando's 2-die roll than on your 3-die roll for defense. If your goal is to stack the equivalent of 3 evade tokens, you're better off rolling 2 dice with Lando, hoping for 2 evades, and then guessing with C-3P0 when you roll your single evade die.

 

With Palpatine, the difference is that he does not add a die result, he modifies a die result. Which means that, if you roll all evades for defense, he can't be used to give you an extra evade result. So, if you roll a blank with Lando, you could use Palpatine to flip it to an evade. The disadvantage here is that you've now spent Palpatine's ability to give Lando's ship an evade token, which you're not sure he'll need. And if he doesn't need it, that's another ship that could've used the help on defense, or an extra crit you could've generated on offense.
